.In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently. -Tony Robbins . . It is our daily actions that shape our lives. Come and start a practice with me that will lift you off your feet. . . Yoga teaching schedule:
🙌🏻Cartwheel / bicep pop to Hand to Hand🙌🏻 . . One of my favorite yoga teachers used to play a game called ‘looks like, feels like.’ The idea was to take a peak yoga pose and find other poses that looked the same or could feel the same as a way to get ready for the peak pose. When I teach Acrobatics I use the term progressions but the idea is the same. Here are a couple of progressions that look like and feel like bicep pop to hand to hand. . . This is @intheworldofemily working these transitions for the first time, but by the looks of it you wouldn’t know it.
🤨Never give up🤨 . . Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. -Arnold Schwarzenegger . . This is @kelbeyogi rocking one of my favorite strong poses ‘croc.’
🙏🏼✨Gratitude ✨🙏🏼 . . My mind has been filled with deep and heavy thoughts trying to understand hateful and hurtful actions of others. This last week I have been reminded that I am surrounded by people that love and support me. When I feel down the simple act of practicing gratitude can tip the scale to turn unhappiness to happiness. . . Thx @kelbeyogi for making such beautiful shapes💙 Yoga mat @huggermuggeryoga
✨Magic✨ . . There is something so special about holding someone’s handstand that I can only describe as magic. If you want some magic in your life come do Acro, yoga, AcroYoga, Handstands or all of the above with me🙏🏼. Tonight (Wednesday’s) 7:45pm is all Levels AcroYoga and tomorrow morning 6am is handstands both at @roottorisestudio🙌🏻🙌🏻 . . This is @kelbeyogi 🧚🏻♂️ and we are on @huggermuggeryoga 💜
She came. She saw. She conquered. . . I couldn’t be more proud of @intheworldofemily. She came to all Levels AcroYoga class this last Wednesday, did high level pops yesterday and pulled this off today. First Inlocate to hand to hand and first suicide drop. . . When people ask what is there to do in Utah, my first answer is always train at @roottorisestudio... magic really does happen here✨
😝Pop Pop😛 . . Pop Pop it’s Friday!!! This is my first no hands 360 throne pop. Really proud of @sugercat_acrobat for not only understanding her part in tricks but for insights for me as well. I hope everyone has a great weekend!
😄Smiles and laughter😂 . . Today @acro_climber wrote about smiles and laughs while doing Acro. It is true like he says that they mostly happen when fails happen. What a beautiful thing to laugh when things aren’t going well. We filmed this sequence a couple of times... we would all laugh because mistakes were usually during small transitions. Smile and laughing when things aren’t going your way... it is a beautiful thing. . . This is @robinluvs@mercedesbenn@sugercat_acrobat ❤️💜
Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission. -Arnold Bennett . . This thought is such a good reminder to me that I might not have control over what happens in my life, I do have control over what I think. Choose to shape your own thoughts today. Health minds will equal a healthy heart. . . This is thee @montynickels 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Floating into Friday😂 . . Lately I have been trying to work myself into handstand from positions other than straight on. It has been a fun challenge. #NeverStopLearning . . BTW on top of my yoga and Acrobatics teaching schedule I am teaching handstands every Thursday🙌🏻
Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. -Mattie Stepanek . . The best as well as the hardest part about partner acrobatics is the “partner.” I am grateful that I enjoy a sport that requires team work towards a similar goal. I love handstands but there is something truly magical and different about hand to hand. I am grateful for both the struggles and the achievements that have come from working with others. Here’s to working with others and to accomplishing more than we could on our own🙏🏼💙🙏🏼 . . This is @montynickels 💪🏼
