💁🏻‍♀️ Confessions from an unflexible yogi 🧘🏻‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know that in my first year of practicing yoga I couldn't touch my toes in a standing forward bend without my thighs being almost parallel to the floor? TRUTH! (talk about tight hammies wowza)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I couldn't sit cross legged without being superiorly unomfortable, and I couldn't balance without holding onto the wall - for real for real⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At 16, after practicing for two years I remember sitting across from a friend saying I would love to be a yoga teacher but I would never be flexible enough - I just wasn't born that way. Which is sort of true - Almost 15 years of practicing later I still may be one of the least flexible yoga teachers around - but that doesn't stop me. You know why? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because yoga isn't about being flexible, it's about so much more than that⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I kept coming back to yoga class not because I wanted to twist my body into some funky postures (ok ok that was part of it) it was because I fell in love with having a relationship with my body & the philosophy that guided me toward that relationship⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is what I teach in my classes, moving away from stigmas of flexibility and fancy shapes and moving toward an embodied practice. Feeling our bodies and having an experience of connection with ourselves that goes deeper than just following a set of instructions⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you're curious, come check out my class 9:30 - 10:30 Tuesday mornings at @helloyogaapparel in Midtown 🧘🏻‍♀️

As day length dwindles, time outside becomes more precious. A walk in nature is one of the most positive things you can do for yourself, especially to lift depression and boost tamasic energy in the colder months.

I’m currently finishing off some of the Kickstarter commissions - paintings chosen by my wonderful supporters. They choose their word and then I intuitively paint an image inspired by the word. One amazing lady is looking forward to receiving her own version of ‘Perspective’ 🌲🌲🌲🥰 I have just one commission space open if you’re looking for a holiday gift for someone.

yogasalt. Practicing with heart is important but walking through life with heart

Practicing with heart is important but walking through life with heart is the ultimate. So often we pick and choose the moments and people we share our love and compassion with. We become selective in our capacity to give kindness to EVERYONE! Yoga is about looking beyond the confines of the material body and seeing ALL BEINGS as our spiritual brothers and sisters. This will extend our love, compassion, and kindness to all walks of life. #yoga #yogasalt #yogaeveryday #yogainspiration #yogawisdom #yogapose #yogaheart #yogasutras 📷 @krista_cahill_yoga

✨back in that new york groove.✨ . Three years ago, I left NYC in search of more calm, more peace, more… something. . I thought if I moved to a new place, got a new job, a new apartment, things would get better. . But the thing is, it wasn’t the city’s fault — at all. In fact, my anxiety got far worse after leaving NYC before it got so much better. . Thankfully, I’ve learned a lot in the last three years — about anxiety, about myself, about happiness. I’ve been happier than ever before, and I think part of that came from realizing that anxiety doesn’t care where you live — it’s going to be there. The key is learning how to manage it, no matter where you are. . I’ve gone through times this month where I could feel some anxiety creeping back, and fatigue setting in (a lesser known symptom of anxiety, especially having dealt with adrenal fatigue in the past). . Thankfully, now, I have a tried-and-true action plan to start feeling better. . This past week, I’ve had more energy and felt more at peace than I have in a while. I got back on track by making small changes & doing things just a little differently, knowing that I feel SO MUCH better when... . I work out in the morning. . I’m not running late. . I don’t make plans every night of the week. . I take some “me time” on the weekends for self-care. . I prep some food for busy days ahead. . I get back into the mountains. (I know I can’t do that all the time right now, but it’s amazing the difference when I do!) . I skip a work event one night to catch up on work or laundry. . I get in bed early and read, rather than scroll on my phone. . Long post short, I’m grateful to feel like I’ve finally re-adjusted to NYC life again, better than before. Now we just have to keep it up. . 📸: @yumimatsuostudio . . . . . . . #wellnesswriter #wellnesscoach #healthcoach #selfcaresunday #selfcareinthecity #yogainthepark #yogawisdom #yogaeverydamnday #yogaposeoftheday

Your hands give you the ability to handle it all—the world’s demands and the way you feel. Between the left and right hand is the third hand, which mediates both.

Birkaç gün onca katıldığım 5 günlük Mindfulnes çalışması sonrası döndüğüm yaşamıma hem uyumlu hem de uyumsuz gibi hissediyorum. . Şöyle ki ne yapıyorsam sadece tam onu yapıyorum .

Päivän viisaus. 💫❤️☀️🥰💎🙏✨ Toistamme usein tiedostamatta samoja toiminta- ja ajatusmalleja elämän eri alueilla. Toimimme samojen mallien mukaan joogassa kuin muualla elämässä, jolloin joogamatto ja sen hiljaisuus voi toimia arvokkaana ikkunana omaan itseen. 💫 Paikkana, jossa voin paitsi tehdä havaintoja omasta itsestäni, myös vahvistaa haluamiani tapoja olla, tehdä ja reagoida. Ja kun muutan tapaani olla joogatunnilla, muutan vähitellen tapaani olla tässä maailmassa! 🙌 Hyvä muistutus on esimerkiksi tämä ☝️- turha tehdä asioista vaikeampia kuin ne on! 🥰 Ihanaa viikonloppua! 💋 Ps. Thank you @revelatori for the picture! 🙏

A tree rises from a little seed. Its roots reach strong and deep into the ground keeping it stable against the winds. Its leaves cover all the branches which reach high up to the sun. It’s fluid and strong. It’s flexible yet solid. It’s full of life, full of beauty. Always changing yet constant. Life is all around us. We tend to forget how beautiful it is and how important is to reconnect. . Yoga is a path to our natural selves. It’s important to find a way to our natural self on a daily basis. . . . #yoga #yogalife #yogapath #yogawisdom #yogini #yogateacher #yogabrisbane #mindfulness #treepose #vrksasana #fluidity #flexibility #stability #balance #yogaflow #yogavideo #nature #yournaturalself #yogaisapath #pathtoyoursoul #soul #gratitude

LOCAL TO GLOBAL . Across the world, we are all fighting for the same rights to end aggression against the environment, end discrimnation, poverty, social injustice, end corruption, end division among humans....the list is so long. The world as we have always known it, does not make sense anymore, and we are not only witnessing its collapse across the planet, but contributing to it by crying our despair, pain and frustration as loud as we can. Proof in of itself that we are all oh so very connected, and united - now more than ever in the history of humanity, - by common goals of Peace and Equality . To the exception of violence in how it breeds more violence, all means of expression to bring change are valid. Back in Lebanon, at 7pm local time today, we are choosing SILENCE. So please please please, as many “please” as there are countries in the world, wherever you happen to be, drop with us into silence for 15 min and join in on our local mass meditation for Lebanon and the World. Whether you meditate or not, do it simply because we are all in this together as members of humanity, co-creating a healthier world. To all my friends, family, followers, let’s do this. Please, figure out your time zone, set your alarm clock now, and share. See you on the flip side .

FERMARE IL MONDO è il primo passo per imparare a VEDERE (in contrapposizione al semplice atto di guardare). A seconda di come il mondo dovrebbe essere, secondo i nostri "pregiudizi", crediamo e creiamo il mondo, però in questo modo ci PRECLUDIAMO la capacità naturale che abbiamo di "VEDERLO", tal come è veramente. INVECE DI "PENSARLO", DOVREMMO IN VERITà "SENTIRLO"... Allora, la verità sorgerebbe davanti ai nostri stessi occhi, e nessuno potrebbe ingannarci più su nulla. Col Dialogo interiore sul Mondo Lo animiamo, lo accendiamo di vita, lo sosteniamo fermamente con la nostra conversazione interna; e non solo è così, addirittura scegliamo anche i nostri cammini a forza di parlare con noi stessi. E' così che ripetiamo le stesse abitudini, gli stessi errori di sempre, uno dopo l'altro. Quando il dialogo interno si ferma, il mondo collassa, e affiorano aspetti straordinari di noi stessi, come se fossero stati severamente tenuti sotto sorveglianza dalle nostre parole. Non esistono due mondi separati, due realtà diverse, un mondo normale e uno paranormale…esiste un mondo unico, che si può “guardare” o “vedere”. #asdperugiabenessere #freeflowashtangayogapg #yogaquoteoftheday #practicealliscoming #yogainspirational #yogawisdom #breathandbelieve

Outstanding class this morning at Sambodhi Yoga Studio. There are over 15 yoga studios here in Kathmandu. So far, this is my favorite. Easy to find in #Thamel and the owner, Vijay Sapkota, has a master’s degree in yoga from India. I love his teaching style and after class myself and the other student visiting from Denmark (along with Vijay and his wife) shared tea and conversation. This is yoga. You can travel anywhere and you will feel at home. I’m blessed beyond measure.

Moving to Scarborough means a big life shift! From my teaching schedule, to our daily habits and most importantly the changes to our social life with our loved-ones in Cape Town, it’s all changing….. I feel and my intuition tells me this change will be for the best. Yes, we will have to prioritize our lifestyle choices differently and I am sure there will be elements we will miss from living in Cape Town. At the same time I am so looking forward to the peace and quiet, to be surrounded by nature, to see and hear the waves of the ocean and to change things around a bit. Great news for yogis in the neighbourhood: I will be teaching yoga in the South of the Western Cape soon and we have an studio which you can rent if you want to explore this lovely town 💛

Jungle fever Grace and ease The magnificent Beauty that roams thru my eyes Appearing & redesigning myself Of late Finding my way In this mad world Of gadgets, devices and machines Balancing Feet on earth And coming bak home by remembering To reflect on the rise and fall Of my breath The scent of flowers Flight of the birds Deep reflection on and in a cup of tea brewing and steaming ( thankyou @ninaclairephotographer for the reminder) Have we forgotten the ways of ourselves and how to come back home? To return to our innate wisdom To truly listen to what Is beating in our hearts? Hav we forgotten to listen to the wisdom of our sages, our wisdom keepers, our old wise crones, our earth guardians?? To live In Harmony With ourselves is a gift Not always easy yet a journey Of the heart and a journey of self love & a journey into the unknown. An unraveling, an uncovering of the parts that may hurt, or shine light on denied truths.. A journey to shine and Radiate thru the storms that are thrown at us, a journey of a thousand steps or one single step.. It is all about coming bak home, to our true voice, our true temple, our unique essence. My heart beats love to everyone On this journey of returning and remembering... Of belonging & becoming. Blooming and blossoming♥️ . . . . . . . #traveladdict #travelgram #yogateacherbali #dancer #portraitphotography #danceveryday #picoftheday #traveldiaries #travelphotography #yogainspiration #dancewisdom #yogaeverywhere #portraitoftheday #yogawisdom #poetryofinstagram #instatravel #yogaretreat #humanity #wisdom #wisesage #empowerment

expandedseed. The reality of being a yoga teacher: sometimes one person shows up.


The reality of being a yoga teacher: sometimes one person shows up. Sometimes you plan an entire class out, the poses, what you'll say, get there early, set the space, and one person shows. Oy. To be honest - it can be really defeating. It's harder to teach to one person than it is to 5 or 10. There's a different energy in the room and in some cases almost requires MORE of your energy. I use to loathe teaching one person. Thought it was awkward (for both of us) - should I do the practice with them or just hold space and watch them? But is that weird for them? What if they ask me something and I don't know the answer? What if I don't help them or they don't feel better after? What if they dont come back because they felt uncomfortable being the only one there? It brought up a lot of my own personal barriers in teaching one on one. But one day I let go of feeling defeated and frustrated that more people didn't show up on those ocassions and just surrendered to it and said, "Maybe you're just meant to teach one on one" and honestly I learned so much. It allowed me to practice holding space for someone, to listen to their needs, to give them what they specifically needed in their body or a mental blockage they were working on. It helped me shed the "akwardness" and build confidence. And it helped me build a deeper relationship to my students. Always bringin it back to gratitude baby!
