MOST RECENT

Do you or anyone you know want to start yoga? New dates for our 5-week intro course is out, starting 28th of August. This course is an opportunity to get a safe start, in an environment where everyone is in the same boat, namely newbies🤗

Note that we are all beginners to some extent, and we continue to seek this state of mind, as beginners mentality is key in yoga🧘🏼‍♂️

Walking is falling over but not all the way, a relationship with gravity and an agreement with the ground. With obstacles abound the way appears when we surrender to our first step. Step way from the fire. #theobstacleistheway @bobbyv48 #thebestdayever

I feel like meditating tonight! preferably with all of you as it’s way easier 😉(never underestimate the power of a shared energy!) and because we can constantly learn from each other. TONIGHT at 19:30 at @beyzas.temple aka @wildheartfreesoulberlin we‘ll do an hour of Heart exploration ❤️🧞‍♂️❤️#heartmeditation #fromheadtoheart #fromintellecttointuition @hridayayoga #moredepthlessbullshit

One of my favorite things to do is to get cozy. Chronic pain has helped me learn to soften and get cozy more often. This is just one of the gifts of being sick. People often look at me funny (or think I'm full of shit) when I say illness has been one of the great gifts of my life. But it truly has been. I've been experiencing daily pain for over a decade, and my health issues go all the way back to early childhood. But it's only been in the last few years that I've been willing to accept the gift that being sick bestows. Before then, I wasn't ready to let go of my resistance to what my body was doing. In this culture are taught to push through! To fight! To pick ourselves up and try again! To GET BETTER at all costs! There is also the evolutionary biology aspect. In days gone by, being sick equaled being weak, which could equal being left behind as food for wild animals. Survival of the fittest, man. Well, I'm here to tell you that you can be very sick AND strong. The strength comes from attuning to your body, and getting honest about what it needs. I don't do this perfectly. While I've been sick a long time, this awakening to my body's cellular truth is still new. This truth isn't on the level of emotions. It's deeper, older, even inherited. My very DNA. Pain and illness has ushered me into a whole new kind of awareness and I'm sometimes on long, shaky fawn legs. This too is a gift. As Shunryu Suzuki says, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few." Being introduced to my body in this way has brought a fresh crispness to my life and to my spiritual practice. I never want to be an expert a being human. I want each breath, ache, orgasm, walk in the city at night, and solo dance party to be my first time, every time. So, whatever it is you are struggling with, let it be a gift. Let it deliver you to this perfect moment. Everything is inviting you to wake up to the beauty of just this. Just this. I see you and I love you.

I just submitted my final piece of coursework of my graduate program. There so much learned outside those yurt classrooms — from the kids, my cohort and nature. Such an amazing academic year coming to a close. #graduateschool #MOSS #IDAHOME #beginnersmind #nature #education #optoutside #nofilter

It is the familiar voice of family and educators that children listen to and learn from. In order to interest our children in the daily practice of meditation, to reap its benefits, it needs to be a collaborative journey. 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦

Approaching myself and my practice with love, reverence, joy, kindness, compassion and ease is as important as getting it in.
.

Setting an intention for my day, placing a vision, or question at the fore front so some clarity shines through are important tools that give me energy and serve me and my life in a deep way.
.
Are you allowing your practice to really serve you and your life? or are you spending a lot of energy on how your practice looks or what it's supposed to be, what it's supposed to do? rather than what it feels like and what it means to you?
.
Allow what you spend time on to serve you. To energize you, connect, elevate and empower you. Only you can really do that for yourself. Really look at where you are now, marvel at it, you are here! it's a beginning not an end. Get creative in imagining what you want to create/birth next, envision it, set the intention and apply action to it. Not what it should be but what it is. For those questions, doubts and fears, place them up there, ask for help, ask for an answer, clarity, direction. If you dont ask you'll never know the answer 💕✨🙏🏽 Isabel Barreto✨💕

I decided to stamp some of my pottery pieces so if/when I give them away or when I use it, it’s a personal touch and reminder to smile.
Stamp 1 is a cheeky cat 🐱... so cute!
Stamp 2 is “Love You”
Stamp 3 is “Double Happiness” in Chinese.
If you have any stamps sitting around that you aren’t using, please send them to me 😬

We miss a lot of the details when we’re buzzing around. This was the message I took away from class this morning at @allthatmattersyoga Slowing down, paying attention and allowing yourself to relearn a pose that you typically just put yourself into. To move with quiet intention on the mat, and off the mat.

I just learned.today that the human eye is only capable of seeing one trillionth of the color spectrum. This means there are a trillion colors we cannot see. It also means we know next to nothing about just about everything. This news comes as something of a relief. The person next to me on the subway is as clueless as I am if i take the broad view. #impostersyndrome #beginnersmind

#questions for your #akashicrecords, #meditation, or #journaling practice:
.
1. How do the weeds of weariness and the old walls of habit show up in my life?
.
2. How do I go beyond familiar fields to reach the flowers of discovery?
.
3. As an #akashicrecordsreader, what am I helping others discover and how?
