A beautiful weekend in the country took this bear out of hibernation!

Yoga Beards Unite!

My dear friends @nativeyoga have brought a bunch of awesome male yogis together to start the Yogabeards Unite team for the November No Shave (Yoga) Event.
Please join our team and help us raise some money and awareness about men's health. Here’s how you can can help:
1) Donate to https://www.no-shave.org/ or join our team at https://www.no-shave.org/team/yogabeardsunite and help us reach our $1500 goal.
2) Ditch your razors this month. Embrace your hair and let it grow! Why wait for your next holiday to grow some scruff?! You have an excuse all November to go scruff. (I started kinda early this year!)
3) Inspire health in others through your yoga practice. Show your support by sharing your story and posting on social media to get other brothers involved. More men are trying yoga everyday and living better because of it!

Help grow the community by tagging our team when you post; #yogabeardsunite @adampolhemusyoga @brianmilleryoga @davidmiliotis @gregnardi @juankgalan @nativeyoga @willduprey. Together we can make a huge difference!

My last Saint Lucian sunset :( Can't wait to be back @thebodyholiday soon. Stay tuned for info on upcoming retreats and teacher trainings. Message me for info!

A flexible mind is just as important as a flexible body. The more we fight things the harder they become. The harder things become the stiffer we get. Staying soft builds flexibility. Being flexible allows us to adapt and grow according to different situations. The stiffer we are in our minds the more likely we are to suffer as the smallest things become big challenges. The stiffer we are in the body, the more likely we are to injure ourselves. The more we’re attached to results the more we delay change - or end up giving up because we’re so stuck on getting there now. Slow down and enjoy the process. Progress and change come with time. Focus on change instead of results and you’ll start seeing the results.
Yoga is as much about developing a flexible mind as it is a flexible body. Forcing and fighting your body into poses will not get your deeper but will hold you back and slow down your progress. Softening the ego and softening the body goes a long way. You’ll end up happier and healthier. Pick your battles wisely, if you keep fighting yourself you’re bound to lose.

Another beautiful Saint Lucian day @thebodyholiday filled with great new friends, some ocean time and of course lots of yoga. Feeling pretty lucky I wandered down a path I never in a million years expected I would. Living your passion is the best way to find lasting happiness. Take chances, be open to new opportunities and new beginnings. Walking down the unexpected path often leads to amazing, unexpected things - including yourself.

Taking things slow, enjoying my day off @thebodyholiday, St. Lucia. Caribbean life really ain't so bad!

Not so sure a job can get much better than this! So happy to be the guest teacher/presenter at this year's October Yoga month at @thebodyholiday, St Lucia. Amazing place, amazing people, incredible service. It's no wonder why most of the guests I've met have been here at least 5 times or more!

After taking a little bit of an instagram hiatus, I think I'm due for a little video… and what better way than with a few of my favourite poses and transitions. Sorry for being somewhat mia, you've all been missed!

"The rhythm of the body, the melody of the mind & the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life." ~ B.K.S. Iyengar

"A person experiences life as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. Our task must be to free ourselves from this self-imposed prison, and through compassion, to find the reality of Oneness." ~ Albert Einstein

"Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; for it becomes your destiny." - The Upanishads

Montreal Yogis! I'll be teaching a free yoga class this Sunday at @coryvines Le Pop-Up Shop at 3455 Blvd St. Laurent from 11am-12pm.
Stick around after, @karmavoresuperfoods and @thirstybuddha will be there handing out free delicious healthy treats and @coryvines will have some special discounts for anyone who came to class!

Come practice, play and feast... Unless you can come up with a better way to spend a Sunday morning (in which case why wasn't I invited?!) See y'all there! Msg me if you need more info :)
