β€œYoga,” when translated from Sanskrit, means β€œunion,” or β€œyoking” of disparate parts. 🀝 Some interpret this as the mind, body, and spirit working in harmony; some may associate it with practitioners gathered in a room, united by both their physical presence and the goal of returning to their highest Self. πŸ§˜πŸΏβ€β™€οΈβž°πŸ§˜πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Others may imagine Yoga as being present with the breath, 🌬 reconnecting with nature, 🌲 or making peace with one’s surroundings. πŸŒ€ There is no wrong answer.
β€’
At @blackdogyoga, this practice and our collective love for its gifts is one thing we all have in common. As we remove the excess in mind and body, and let go of what weighs heavy on the spirit, we are left with the knowledge of our connection, seeing the divine in the humanity as our hearts beat as one. πŸ’ž
β€’
So whether you #practice alone in your room or in a big group of people, know that you are #united and supported by this international community. May you always feel this sense of home as you continuously return to yourself. πŸ™ #seeyouonthemat

β€œThis week kicks off with a New Moon in Gemini, marking this as a dynamic time for setting intentions. β™ŠοΈ New Moons are the perfect time to start something new and to seek openings, insights, or potential. πŸ“š This particular New Moon is especially good for getting emotionally aligned with how you want to be and to bring new eyes to old problems. πŸ”‚ You don’t need to be perfect, and you don’t need to know exactly what the future will hold; all you need is to strive to know yourself now. πŸ™ In the wise words of Elizabeth C McLaughlin, β€œWhen you feel hopeless, it’s time to take a break or to take action.” πŸ’“ Challenge yourself to clarify intentions and set out on a new course – but don’t try to take on more than three things! Gemini can take on too much, which leads to getting nothing fully done. It’s okay to prioritize some goals over others for now. The trick is to make sure that you’re setting heartfelt intentions that you believe in.” πŸ’™
