Angela  🕉 Teacher and Student of Yoga 🌱 Plant-based Living

Happy Friday yogis 🕉🕉🕉 I’ve never posted a progress pic, but I thought this one is kind of fun. I love this #asana #tittibhasanab because it’s just so weird and kind of funny. First pic is from today Oct. 2018 second pic is from June 2018. I practice this posture at least a couple of times each week. It’s crazy how incremental the progress is, but it does show! Have an awesome weekend, and don’t forget to 👉🏼 #keepyogaweird #fireflypose .

Dharana 👁✨👁 Deep Concentration... the key to Mastery. Paramahamsa Yoganada would say, ‘Americans are decent and everything, and masters of nothing.’ Woah!! We gotta stop running around from here and there, and stop conditioning our children into doing the same ✋ Concentrate our energies and let’s do simple things fully. We can’t master everything, but with one-pointed focus we can at least begin to master ourselves 🕉 #dharana #deepconcetration #onepointedness #asburypark @asburyparkboardwalk #yogart #muralart #yogainspiration #anjaneyasana #lowcrescentlunge #heartopen #yogaeveryblessedday #blessed #yogaphilosophy #om #vegan #namaste

What most of my yogasana practice looked like this morning 🍁🍁🍁 Chai, yin, lake view, big scarf, leg warmers 👌👌👌 #lakegeorge #yoga #stretch #upavisthakonasana #dragonflypose #yinyoga #om

So I missed #forearmfriday because I’m in the woods, on a lake, in a cabin, loving life 💕🍁💙 But, here is another video that I edited with MUSIC 🎶 This is ‘three weeks’ by Perpetual Groove 🌸 This wood was also slippery, so you can see me nearly bust my butt at the end X #pinchamayurasana #hollowback#yogavideo #yogasana #earth #smile #yogaeveryday #yogaeverywhere #yogaeveryblessedday #blessed #om #vegan #namaste

Hey! SOUND ON!! You may have seen this video on my stories a week or so ago.... but, I have figured out how to put music to my videos and I’m kind of obsessed! Music is such a big part of my life, and I love the creativity of matching the music to the movement ✨✨✨✨ I’ve been playing with adding music to videos all night last night... so fun! Have an awesome day ❤️ #tbt #yogapractice #yogasana #splits #flexibility #stretch #om #love

Asana or ‘posture’ in yoga actually means ‘seat’. Yoga practitioners have taken this to mean the ‘seat of meditation’, the most important asana of all. All of the other postures stemmed from the yogi stretching, moving, expanding and contracting, so that the meditative seat would be more comfortable for longer amounts of time.
There is also another way to look at the term ‘seat’ through the context of #yogasana. As we emulate these different forms of nature, for instance in this photograph I am in the ‘seat’ of a pigeon, I have momentarily become a pigeon, in my body, in my mind and with my breath. I am fully seated in that pigeon space. #kapotasana #pigeonpose #princeton #yogart #yogaphotography ✨📸✨ @gingersmithcreative ❤️.

“The LOVE ❤️ that wished you into existence will never let you down.” -Rolf Gates .

Surrendering to our own unique Dharma is quite the process. It requires us to let go of being the doer, the orchestrator, the controller, when we’ve been taught, encouraged and conditioned to act that way our entire lives. The truth is, when we can let-go, when we can let God/ Goddess/ The Universe/ The Higher Energy lead the way, things actually happen more synchronistically than we could have ever conjured up on our own accord. Trusting is a practice, it’s a process, it takes time and it’s not always easy. Here is a simple equation;
FAITH > fear = surrender 😊❤️ The LOVE that wished you into existence will never let you down 🙏🏼 #tittibhasana #fireflypose #insectpose #yogart #nj #princeton #yogaphotography #bw ✨📸✨ @gingersmithcreative .

“The hardness of a diamond 💎 is part of its usefulness, but its true value is in the light that shines through it.” B.K.S. Iyengar 🕉.
Although I’ve had a bit of a love affair with Ashtanga Yoga over the past 5 years, I must admit that I feel myself more and more drawn to Iyengar Yoga and Iyengar teachers. Never does a week go by when I do not reference Light on Yoga for inspiration in both my asana practice and my svadhyaya. For instance, this posture here, which resembles 1/2 frog and 1/2 padangustha dhanurasana, is a posture that I first saw a picture of B.K.S. Iyengar practicing. His teachings are so deeply connected to yoga scriptures, and I can feel that his studies are intensely introspective. If you are practicing/ sharing yoga and have never watched, ‘The Ultimate Freedom’, I suggest setting aside an hour of your day to delve into a spellbinding demonstration of asana, philosophy and teaching that is unparalleled. A master at work. .

Stay tuned as I start to share photos from an amazing photoshoot @princeton_university with an incredible presence @gingersmithcreative 🙏🏼❤️📸#bksiyengar #padangusthadhanurasana #bhekasana #yogasana #princetonuniversity .
