How do you know when you are ready? When is the best time? I recently had a yogi ask me these two questions and although they were meant to be related to becoming a yoga teacher, I like to think that they are applicable to life. These two questions... boy, are they deep. And honestly, who hasn't asked them? I know I have and I don't have an answer... because I believe there isn't one. The best way to know and the best time to get started is RIGHT NOW. Waiting to be ready or for things to get perfect is just fear masquerading as logic, and if we wait for that time to come, well... we'll be waiting for a long time. So let's not wait and let's live. What do you think? ————— #livelife #yogalife #yogini #yogawithbriohny #handstand —————— Wearing @aloyoga ’s new holiday line 📸 @actionhiro

The key to handstand success is........ 🤔🔑 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Squaring the hips in a standing split is definitely a trending cue in the yoga community. Now, I think it’s important for the outer hip to find engagement. If the top leg externally rotates to help you stretch a bit that’s completely fine but if you are approaching handstand and you’re going into a handstand prep, the key is to square the hips. That way when you jump up, you have a nice hollow body and your hips are square and not open. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Watch the full video for my trick. Try it at home and let me know how it goes 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #handstands #yogawithbriohny #yogachallenge #yogaposes #practiceyoga #instayoga


Feeling like the first time I found yoga today 💕 I woke up and felt so inspired that I went to my backyard, cleared my mind and just started flowing. Just being present and grateful made such a difference in my morning, I’m filled with love and ready for everything that is to come. How about you?? Wearing @aloyoga ’s holiday collection, that just launched today! #yoga #handstands #aloyoga #practiceyoga

👉Why do we teach this??👈 Learning the why is just as important as learning the how. As a yoga teacher, I believe that getting to know the why is key to helping our students to get all the benefits from yoga. Moreover, it can be a great way to better our own practice because by getting to know the pose and how to cue it, we can learn how effective it really is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm really passionate about sharing my knowledge and I'm excited for you to tune in today's why: Why do we draw the tailbone down? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would love to hear your thoughts and tips on this. Let me know below if this works for you 👇 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yogateacher #practiceyoga #yogateachertraining #yogawithbriohny #why #instayoga

Happiness.. it takes practice 💕 It's been hard to figure out how to make time for myself 😅 It took a while but I finally stepped away to get perspective and I realized all the things I was missing out for not putting what is important first. So, I pressed the "restart" button and now, I'm getting to a place that I'm proud of. Not everything is perfect, but hey does it matter? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If anyone else is feeling like I used to feel, what really got me through was using yoga as a way to detox. I used my flows with all their twists and the sweatiness to navigate my thoughts and emotions. It was intense but worth it. So much so I'll be sharing my flow at @wanderlustfest Wellspring next Oct. 26. So if you're looking to leave behind your problems and worries to start anew, I'll be waiting 🤗 👉Full Class Info in the link in my bio ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wellspring2018 #yogateacher #experiencewell #connection #healing #yoga #instayogis


When your world is upside down, you know you are a yogi 🤣 Lately, I’ve been seeing the world from different perspectives (sometimes quite literally upside down) and I’ve got to say, I recommend it. It’s hard and it takes practice but it’s so empowering. So whether it’s that yoga pose you’ve been dying to try out or that thing that’s been on your bucket list for a while, my advice is to go for it. You’ll learn something new about yourself and what’s better than getting to know you? Let me know how it goes 💕 #empowerment #change #instayogi #womenempowerment #yoga


It’s ok if you fall down and lose your spark. Just make sure that when you get back up, you rise as the whole damn fire 🔥 💪 ❤️ #strongwomen #befierce #thoughshebebutlittlesheisfierce #strengthquotes #yoga


The past 2 days, Sydney and I had the most amazing opportunity to unwind and reconnect with one another at the beautiful @costapalmas and taking this quick break made me realize how important the below concept is in regards to our relationship with our kiddos! .———————— Making conscious choices throughout my day is a goal of mine. That said, it doesn’t always happen and many of my interactions (especially with people close to me) are driven by reaction...especially when I’m stressed and busy. I tend to beat myself up when I’m reactive and I have to remind myself that I am a work in progress...I think I always will be. And even though I may make choices that I am not proud of sometimes, at least I am aware of them, even if it’s after the fact. Then, I can use that awareness to course correct, be accountable for my actions and words, and create the best interactions possible. Putting that into practice often has helped me act in a way that cultivates healthy relationships with people rather than reacting and regretting it or worse, make up excuses. .——————— Self awareness doesn’t stop you from making mistakes, it allows you to learn from them so you gain the tools for change. .——————— Comment a ⚒ if you’re on the same path. #awareness #selfwork #yogawithbriohny #yogamama #costapalmas

This pose kicks my butt...literally! The only way I feel strong in this pose is to kick my bent leg heel as hard as possible into my glute. Over the past couple of years, after the birth of my son Sydney, I realized that my quads and hamstrings had gotten super weak from years of over stretching. Now, after focusing strongly on strengthening, my body is starting to feel balanced again...after all, that's the goal of yoga for me. Why do you do yoga? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yoga #armbalance #strength #balance #instayogi


Feeling good is not only about what you do with your body, it's also about what you put into it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In my teen years, I didn't quite grasp this concept and it took me a long time to understand how food could be an agent of change in your life. As a mom, I'm quite mindful of what I put on my kid's plates but I also do it for me. Because eating good food makes me feel good! Not only physically, but mentally as well. Now, I'm no expert but I do love to learn so I'm always on the lookout for recipes and online courses that will help me around the kitchen. Which is why I'm so excited about @JasonWrobel 's Good Mood Food course!!! Over the next 10 days, I will be learning more on how to eat so I feel my best. Who's in?? Also, let me know if you want to see my journey in my stories 🙈 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👉Sign up for FREE in the link in my bio #feelgood #foodie #healthyfood #healthylifestyle #yogimama #momlife

The yoga journey is really the journey of life. Through yoga, my mind slows down and the beauty around me becomes clearer...and there is so much beauty ❤️❤️ Sometimes, my head is too full and I forget to look at what's right in front of me but I'm making a point of enjoying myself more, in any situation and every day. Who else is on a mission to find beauty everywhere? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happyplace #yogisofinstagram #yogachallenge #yogagirl #livelife


With Sydney in Kindergarten and @taylorchanarat in 8th grade, their weekday schedules have become insane. The other day, I was booked, back to back, from 7am-9pm. I’ve started to feel like a Mom-Uber...a “Muber” is what I call myself these days! But, on the weekends, I make sure to spend quality time with both of them. Last night, Sydney and I went on a movie and shopping date...the shopping was his idea btw! And Taylor and I love to go to a yoga or boxing class together on the weekends. —————- How do you spend quality time with your loved ones? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yogimama #yogamom #yogifamily #family #motherhood
