I know it's a little hard to see in the photo but that black thing at the bottom of my water pitcher is my activated charcoal plastic free water filter. It filters the water naturally but without all that plastic packaging and lasts for 4 months. Also, it's biodegradable πŸ‘ŒπŸ½πŸ’¦

Machine Tricep Extension. This exercise isolates the #triceps . Most common error I see are the arms coming way off the pad during the exercise. Easy to fix. Just adjust the seat pad height so that your upper arms sit flush against the arm pad. Then adjust the back pad depth so that your elbows are aligned with the pivot point of the machine (where the machine arm turns). Finally don't use more weight than you can handle. Should feel solid and braced in the machine! πŸ’ͺ

Sometimes, change is a good thing! When's the last time you followed your heart & did something drastic?! #newjob #newcity #neweverything #yourpiefamily #thesunshinewithin

β€œThere is only one asana and that is the relationship with yourself. Being comfortable with yourself--with your body and your mind--is the goal. Allowing your relationship with yourself to be steady and joyful will reveal the true self inside of all the whirling and changing. The true self is eternal and unchanging. Asana and meditation are the same practice--both about being able to sit with whatever may be happening and trusting that inside of it all that is eternal joy which is the only true reality--and that is your own self.
Every feeling, every emotion, positive or negative, has a starting point, an origin. In the ancient wisdom--not just in yogic tradition, but in all spiritual traditions-- the source of everything is joy. The source of the entire universe is joy: boundless.
The paradox is that in order for practice to be effective, we need detachment; but in order to develop detachment, we need to practice. So we go through a yoga class, a day at work, an evening at home or a dinner with friends, and no matter what comes up, we sit with it--that is, we don’t run away from it or resort to blame or arrogance other externalizing mental actions, or if we do, then we note that and try not to be attached to it. And little by little, we find that we can sit with it a little longer, and we can remain unfurled a little more, all at the same time.” -Sharon Gannon β€’β€’β€’||β€’β€’β€’
Your true self lives in Joy. This #MantraMonday we are inspired by Sharon Gannon and finding joy through our practice of non-attachment.

There's a Funny story about this jumper: Originally, it was dyed purple!
This piece was my 1st sample for the #AspenCollection . I hadn't ever really dyed with all-natural dyed before this collection, so everything was an experiment. For some reason, I thought it'd be totally acceptable to attempt dyeing the ENTIRE garment (once it was sewn and everything!) in a 20 gallon pot of logwood dyed. Needless to say, the jumper that came out of that first dye bath was.... awful.
It had splotches where the dye was unable to set properly and it just wasn't very cute. So, for the next few items in the collection, I decided to piece dye the fabric BEFORE sewing it all together.
Well, I had finally gotten to my indigo dye batch of items and I figured, "what the hell?" This jumper couldn't get any worse, could it?

And WALAH! Out emerged this beauty of a garment, all perfectly dyed a wonderful faded denim color.
So, moral of the story: Don't be afraid to dive head first into a project and just try something new!
