So this is 54. Nurturing my body as a temple has been a powerful ritual in my life. I have birthed four children out of this body and this body has carried me in great health throughout my life this far. This body has done so many amazing things for me most of them without my participation which allows me to care for my children, sing, teach yoga and express myself creatively in so many ways -so today I honor her and I nurture her with all of her parts, all of her organs and all of her imperfect unique attributes. Give thanks to the body as temple and celebrate your unique form ! 🙏 New episode is live on #divinethroughline ! On DT #50 I explore #bodyastemple + a new original song by @tylerpiatt of @analeimmaband "Moonlight Sparks" #divinethroughline podcast is now at 200,000 downloads !!! thank you so much for listening !

Can't believe this is my first time making some simple belly dance video instructional videos after years of requests. My upcoming 3 week trip to Peru inspired me to created 3 videos to replace me while I'm gone and keep my students moving. Originally I was only going to share this with current students but I'm open to sharing the private like with whom ever is interested and send me there email address. I'll send out an email with unlisted links in the next couple of days before I journey.

Many many reasons why I was drawn to experiment with an extended fast, and many many reasons I adored it!! Foremost: extreme timeless spaciousness! Body clock reset, listening deep, crystal clear perception and amazing books to fuel inquiry. With uninterrupted hours to spend attending inward! #beststaycationever #fastingjourney #bodyastemple #bodyasteacher #athayoganusasanam #latergram

A little snippet from my self practice this afternoon. I appreciate the Rocket Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga systems as a self led practice. They are great to have in your back pocket when you can't make it to a studio. It's interesting to watch this sped up 12x (actually 15min) to see the differences in each side, where the breath is moving in my body. Our bodies really are miracles. #rocketyogi #rocketyoga #selfpractice #bodyastemple

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people in the world, dearest MacKenzie! She and her husband have extra reason to be thankful this year. Sending you all loads of love!

🎈🔎🛒👣I love empty shopping carts as symbols of adventure beginnings. This one showed up in the echo-landscape of the boneyard creek tunnel at the start of my 10 day water fast, meeting to song-play intentions awake with my bestie harmonizer. Where do we go from here? #icare #fastingjourney #bodyastemple #bodyasteacher #athayoganusasanam #wehavenoearthlywayofknowingwhichdirectionwearegoing #latergram

MEDITATION (#JasperMeditation)
_
Doing asana feels really good. But deeply immersing yourself in Dhyana while flowing through the asanas takes our practice to a whole other level.
_
PHOTO: One of my favorite aerialists, Crystal, was coming over for a shoot. She said she had a friend who had spent some time in India and was interested in coming with her. That friend was Caroline.
_
In India we have nomadic holy men called Sadhus (female ascetics are called Sadhvi). Though Caroline is blonde and blue eyed, she has a distinct “Sadhvi” vibe about her. More than just her nose ring, beaded strings on her wrists and ankles, and mess of hippie hair, there is something about her kind soul that reminds me of Sadhus I have hung out with in my travels in India.
_
We spent a delightful afternoon after our shoot talking about her peregrinations in India.

Happy Birthday, Leah!

PHOTO: MacKenzie and I have been shooting together for years, and she is one of my favorite yogis to work with. She is on the cover of this year’s Body as Temple calendar and has been in several of my previous art projects.
.
She called me up and said she has a best buddy, Leah, who loves the art nudes we have done. She wanted to surprise her by bringing her to my studio and shooting nudes with her. I said, sure, game on!
.
It was a such a blast! This is one of the photos from that session.

Throw back to one year ago's Grand Canyon #kongfu #chigong dragon activation! I merged with this magical land and my heart will forever have weavings there. Until we return again I will dream of your waters and your caves, datura flowers and ravens, your colors and your majesty... 🐲💦✨#grandcanyon #havasupai #priestesspath #templedance #bodyastemple #wildwomen

POETRY (#JasperPoetry)
.
When you are so full of sorrow
that you can't walk, can't cry anymore,
Think about the green foliage
that sparkles after the rain
.
Don't cry upon your losses
Don't measure today with tomorrows
Don't trust to passed and coming days
Believe in now - and be happy today
.
― Omar Khayyám, The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam

What do you do when three Goddesses decide to descend on your studio and start playing around, blessing your abode with their loving maya? Why, you sit back and enjoy the leela! And capture some of it on your camera to share with other mortals. This series is called Body as Temple, after all!

PHOTO: I had photographed my dear friends Sophie, Miki and Caley for a fashion editorial we shot at Santa Monica beach. Then they decided to come back and play some more, but minus the fashion this time, of course. :)

POETRY (#JasperPoetry)
.
“The moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it:
The moon is within me, and so is the sun.
The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me;
but my deaf ears cannot hear it.”
.
Fifteenth century mystic poet, Kabir
Translated by Rabindranath Tagore (Songs of Kabir, 1915)
_
Kabir’s poetry was a great force behind the Bhakti (Devotional) Movement in India during the fifteenth century. His words reflect the foundational philosophy behind Yoga, that we are all one. That the Atma and Parmatma are one. That all we desire, is already within us.
_
The lines above allude to the divine and infinite energy of the universe residing inside each of us, but which we fail to see.

PHOTO: I met Hallie at my gym. She is a trainer. As we conversed it became apparent she is as much of a nerd about history, culture and philosophy as I am. We continued our conversation as we did our shoot.

The human body is the temple of God
One who kindles the light of awareness within
