Happy first day of fall! The leaves are already starting to change in my neck of the woods and the morning air is brisk again and I wore a sweater. πŸπŸ‚πŸƒ

Day 8 | #AntidoteYoga
Self Esteem
#yogischoice #yogicthinker
_
So why is Yogi's Choice the antidote for Self Esteem issues? Because choice implies freedom. Freedom to choose. Freedom to be. Freedom to be ourselves. The hungry child within starts to feel more satisfied and we finally get to explore the peace in who we are when we feel safe in our own authenticity. I dont need to be someone else. I dont need to be worshipped. I don't need the likes to validate me. I don't need to be the center. I really just need to be me. Not so easy if there is fear or wounds, but I do have the choice, and that is a wonderful gateway to enter through to find that being me is what I was made for. .
Thank you all for playing with us! We had so much fun. We will let everyone have a couple days to catch up and will post our winner before long. πŸ™πŸ»

Day 7 | #AntidoteYoga
#stress
#lotus
_
Stress is a reality for each of us. We all carry it in different ways as it has its affects in mind, body, and spirit. When I enter into savasana, I try to achieve a state of rest. Lotus is different. It intentionally locks us in a stressed position where there is little room for movement. We are close to the earth and forced to accept our postion. When we accept, we are given the chance to focus, breathe, pray, listen, empty, fill and finally release in which we then go back to movement. The lesson for us in how we deal with our life stresses is here as well.

Day 6 | #AntidoteYoga
Circulation
#Inversion
_
Careful now! Inversions are not for everyone! If you have been in the yoga community for a long while, you have probably heard about the benefits of inversions and have experienced them. However, this antidote is healthy for some and potentially dangerous for others. For those with high blood pressure, certain eye problems and spinal injuries, inversions can be quite unsafe. While we are all big fans of flipping our perspective, I'm going to be the voice of caution on this. Know your body, grow your capabilities slowly, and be nice to yourself if you have a limitation πŸ‘ŠπŸ»

Day 5 | #AntidoteYoga
Weakness In Posture
#plank
_
According to a study on posture by researchers at Ohio State University, "sitting up straight in your chair isn't just good for your posture - it also gives you more confidence in your own thoughts." Amazing! How we carry ourselves has a direct impact on thinking and behavior. It makes so much sense that it is the very core of us that can make such an impact. It would seem that whether taken literally or figuratively, strengthening the core helps strengthens belief!

Day 4 | #AntidoteYoga |
Heartache
#heartopener
_
So will doing a heart opener actually solve your heartache? Probably not, but like many aspects of yoga there are some deeper meanings that we can draw from the physical expression of opening up. When we are in pain, we reflex into a closed position. We have all experienced a closed or shut down person at the unhealthy level be it ourselves or someone else. Here we are reminded that our heart is a singular spark that God has ignited within us to show the world. When our hearts are open, we shine and the heartache is a little more bearable.

DAY 3 #AntidoteYoga
Blues
#armbalance
_
Arm balances are what actually got me into yoga, and wouldn't you know it, that was during such a difficult season in my life. There are those periods where life seems to yell at you that "You are not strong!" Yet in arm balances we are given a physical proof that we do have strength and are capable of great things. When you grasp bakasana a door is unlocked to so many other postures and variations. A year ago I injured both of my hands and I still have not fully recovered. I am not able to arm balance like I used to at this point but the lesson from before was learned - I am strong and I can fly. What a great antidote for the blues πŸ’ͺ

Day 2 #AntidoteYoga
#Tiredness
#Savasana
_
It seems like a no brainer that if you struggle with being tired that you should get more sleep, but getting rest is something a little different. In this posture it is easy to allow ourselves to sleep because of exhaustion, or stay too focused because of not being able to let go of the tension. We are awake in this state, but we have let go. We are aware, but we are at rest. It is a difficult balance for so many. For me, this is a reminder that I must allow time in my day for conscious rest of body and spirit. Healing and restoration is in this place. Perhaps the exhaustion won't be as intense and perhaps the stress wont be so acute if I do. This antidote is a difficult one to put into practice as it is counter to our culture. What might life be like for us all if we took time to practice this posture in our days?

FIXITY FIXIE | #AntidoteYoga Day 1
#Fixity
#ForwardFold or #HipOpener
_
Fixity. There are a few definitions for this word but "The quality of not changing" resonates most with me. We all get stuck sometimes. It might be due to injury, lack of motivation, or the focus on every other area accept our health. Our bodies begin to tighten, stiffen, freeze, and adapt to the unchanging lifestyle. They become fixity. Truth be told, this is exactly where I am! So I want to come back to yoga, starting with a simple fold where I exhale, elongate my spine and reach down to those planted toes. Begin to change the muscles in the hamstrings and lower back by practicing this stretch. Deepen your breath and reach further in time. A fold is a wonderful antidote to a fixity body or life, and that is why we chose it for day 1!😊

I was honored to officiate the wedding of my lifelong best friend last weekend. It was a beautiful day at the lake and getting to share it with my love @kellieduff made it even sweeter. 😍❀

On Father's Day, we climb mountains. The boys and I made quite the hike on Sunday and were treated to the best view we've ever seen. Pictured in front of us is Mt. Adams, but we also could see Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Hood. The Cascadia Volcanoes are just incredible. Father's Day is one of my favorite days of the year and this one did not disappoint. Love these guys and our adventures β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦
