You're always within your own reach. You don't need to see the toe to grasp it. You don't need to see the tree to mimic it's height. You don't need the love to be returned to make it real. Love is as real as the toe, and even easier to grasp.

Feeling good in my back body, despite a strain. I have a grand funk settled over my heart, so I'm trusting the work of uncertainty. I'm not certain how this will make it better, I am certain that it will. #trusttheprocess #parkyogi #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #yogaeveryday #yogalife #introvert #quiet #yogateacher

See how my hip is just a touch below its partner? You might advise me to lift or shift it somehow. But look more closely and you'll see that my left heel is turning in just a touch. Notice too, that this has turned out my knee just so and if those two bits would align, my hip would lift and shift back naturally. Work in your feet to protect your knees and hips. From my mat to yours. #namaste #yoga #yogalife #yogateacher #alwaysworking #practice #parkyogi #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #myriadgardens #yogaeveryday

Your body will go through phases, changing appearances, shifting proportions, the light will hit you one way and then another. Remember that what you see, what you identify as matter, is hardly there at all against the amount of energy and information of which you're comprised. Even as I flow I shift, moving through waters of understanding, redirection, new purpose. If you can see all of this in 15 seconds, imagine the shifts we model throughout one day. Attaching ourselves to any of it can exhaust the senses. #parkyogi #practice #myriadbotanicalgardens #myriadgardens #yoga #yogafitness #yogateacher #bodyimage #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #patient

You return to yourself in the quiet places, where hard work isn't muddied by struggle or unnecessary loss. Here all is suspended. Here the effort is equal to the release. #civiccenteryogis #yoga #yogateacher #kakasana #armbalance #introvert

You have to be brave enough to venture forward. There's more out there, beyond the fear of falling. You won't fall. How often do we put our feet down and say we've fallen from the pose when exactly the opposite is true? Putting the foot down is avoiding the fall, skillfully, I might add. What's really important here? Be honest and kind with yourselves. #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #parkyogi #yoga #yogateacher #yogaeveryday #virabhadrasana3 #warrior #strongereveryday #brave

Some days my practice is quiet communion with the ground and the flow of community around my chosen perch. I love to be the fixed point, able to see the flux of it all and feel the eddies and currents left behind. The deep well of my still water amplifies the difference. #quiet #seated #parkyogi #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #sacralchakra #svadisthana #invertedintrovert #introvertrecharge

Uddiyana Bhanda practice from Adho Muka Svanasana. Practicing the center lock stimulates and balances the adrenal gland and can improve digestive efficacy. What are you doing in your hang time?

When life springs a sunbeam like this in my path, you can bet we'll work from lizard places. #intuitive #vitamind #lizardpose #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #teeki #yogainstructor #yogaeveryday #yoga #parkyogi #practice #fitflow #lunchflow #okc #downtownokc

Variations help us to create context for the coming conversation. In this version of #ardhahanumanasana I take deep liberties to create the context of a standing split, which comes later as a transition. It's easier to flow through familiar waters, so when the standing split is part of another challenging move, familiarity will help beget simplicity. If you practice the challenging pieces out of context, you find yourself better able to stitch them in later. As always, the time and space must be taken. ~*~

Here I am practicing part of a sequence for my Downtown Yogis. Almost all of my lunchtime students came to me with very little, if any Yoga experience; and yet here I am working on what I think they'll need...things they've already built, and the next few steps in. If you don't want to, don't. Say that. "I don't want to." But don't ever say you can't. It's not true, fair, or helpful. It does not bear repeating. From my mat to yours. ~*~

The best part is that it doesn't hurt. I am neutral in a lot of places, so I can be strong where I need to be. When my energy is being spent protecting joints at risk, my back body muscles don't have what they need to engage in steady strength. Take stress out of the joints and now all the energetic resources can be spent elsewhere. No pain, and a smooth steady breath, and enough left to enjoy the sun shining through my solar plexus.

When you ground down to reach up, and your heart lifts and spreads, what then do you find on the surface of your mind? Who sits with you, at the sky of your heart? You must know this, if you're to know anything. #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #yoga #yogateacher #yogaeveryday #tadasana #anahata #introverting #practice #parkyogi

Balasana. Eternal gratitude for the chance every day to work with, in and through this body. No matter how I feel, or how it changes, here I show up for myself and know myself better for having practiced.

My bangs are getting out of hand. This realization was about as useful as my practice got today. Some days are just a wash. #parkyogi #whompwhomp #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #myriadgardens #practice #yogateacher

If I were trying to stick the pike, I'd step closer to my hands. I'm training the fluidity of my landing. Can you see it? My goal is to let the energy move through me and take me back up. There's so much jarring when we stop against the ground. Small wonder all the resistance to fly higher, when the landing shakes you to the bone. This all feels terribly important. #yoga #yogateacher #invertedintrovert #pike #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #parkyogi #practice #reginaspektor

I love teaching in this space. Everything feels just right. Thanks to all who sustain our little enterprise here at the OKC Civic Center. I so look forward to the time I spend here. #ustrasana #openheart #anahata #manipura #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #yoga #yogateacher #okc #downtownokc

#hyperlapse flow from my prep for practice. Everyone is welcome to our practices at the Civic Center. It only costs five dollars and every level of ability is welcome, challenged and encouraged. If you know anyone who would benefit from a lunchtime practice, encourage them to join us on T/Th from 11:30-12:30.

#adhomukavrksasana I'm not addicted to you. I'm in love with the girl who gets me here, who holds me here. I'm in love with the girl who sets herself down and calls it good work. I'm in love with the depth of what follows when she rests. #parkyogi #practice #invertedintrovert #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #yoga #yogateacher #yogaeveryday

I am the grass. I am the tree. No I'm not. I am love and they are me. #parkyogi #backbends #ustrasana #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #myriadgardens #manipura #anahata

What is true remains true. I know this as surely as I know my own name. You are free to live in fluidity, because the truth of you will never change. #brave #strongereveryday #virabhadrasana3 #yogaeveryday #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #muladhara #yoga #yogateacher

Grounded and quiet these days. My teacher reminded us that quiet and stillness are required, if we're to be able to hear ourselves apart from others. Many of us subtly avoid this inner voice. We all have our reasons. Do you know yours? #yoga #yogateacher #yogaeveryday #parkyogi #peace #quiet #introvert #myriadbotanicalgardens #myriadgardens #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #gomukasana

Nine months ago I couldn't bear any weight on my hand past down dog. I was carrying the weight of a year of loss and pain and fear. Life swings it's bat at all of us. After physical therapy, I entered into a new relationship with Yoga poses: fear. I had never faced so much fear of more pain, more loss...everything carried much higher implications...how to crawl up out of fear when what you love most triggers exactly that? The very tool I'd used to assuage fear had become the source. And yet, I know the craft. I know the rules of patient, quiet rebuilding. I know that if I am soft, nurturing, humble and kind my love for the work will bear it's own fruit. How long doesn't matter. Here I am, approaching something I couldn't conceive of doing for the second time around. Not fearless, but willing. From my mat to yours. #yogateacher #yoga #yogamazé #inversion #patient #practice #grateful #parkyogi #myriadgardens #myriadbotanicalgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis

Here I am using what I know about #vrksasana tree pose to train my #vasisthasana side plank variation. Once the knee is fully closed, the heel will align with the groin. Most of us get in a hurry to plant the foot, placing it too close to the knee joint. Seek always to close the knee first. Once the heel is against the groin, lift the groin up into the heel. You can see that the groin lift raises the hips to the height of my shoulder, stabilizing both my shoulder and protecting my knee on the base side. It should be noted that it is necessary to root the hand and externally rotate the upper arm bone to protect the shoulder and to stand firmly on the side of a flexed (dorsi) foot to support the standing leg. #parkyogi #plankchallenge #yoga #yogateacher #yogafitness #downtown #myriadbotanicalgardens #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergy #devonenergyyogis #share #pointers

The newness in the training. This one held, but you can see that my weight hasn't quite shifted far enough into the base of the left fingers. Just a fraction further forward from the shoulder, through the wrist and into the knuckles would engage my TA enough to hold as long as I want. I could stop throwing my hips back so far and using my leg to counter. If your brain is full of chatter, or criticism, opinion, defensive narration etc... You won't see the subtle clues that lead you into understanding. In every rebuilding process, there is richness and insight beyond what was gleaned the first time through. Be humble enough to receive the blessing. #yoga #yogateacher #patient #parkyogi #practice #myriadgardens #myriadbotanicalgardens #devonenergy #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #adhomukavrksasana #variation #nuance #yogaeveryday #yogafitness #grateful

When you're trying to change a habit, it's natural to feel thwarted. When I'm moving for sensation, and protecting my left wrist, the urge to flex my spine and hang on with my front body pulls me into myself. Look closely. The hands don't come down here. The body is going into protect mode, curling in and forward. The head comes down. It's not a conscious engagement. It's emotional. It's primal. It's temporary. #observe #yoga #yogateacher #yogafitness #yogaeveryday #civiccenteryogis #myriadgardens #myriadbotanicalgardens #devonenergyyogis #devonenergy #selfstudy #selfaware #patient #practice #parkyogi #protective

What is strength without sweetness? Sweetness without strength? Stillness comes when one meets the other. Yoga Sthira Sukahm Asanam #yoga #yogateacher #yogafitness #vasisthasana #uttitahastapadangustasana #sthirasukhamasanam #introvert #practice #parkyogi #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #peace

When you are familiar with two points, you can dedicate your thoughts to the attributes they share, maintain those and simplify the navigation through their differences. Without knowledge of each point, the way becomes more complicated; less certain. Deciding when to forge ahead anyway is the question, and the body can tell you which it is today. Listen, and always assume there's more to learn. #yoga #parkyogi #myriadbotanicalgardens #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #practice #yogateacher #yogafitness #chapasana #uttitahastapadangustasana #variation #selfsustained #introvert

It's my miracle. The bone was not supposed to heal. It did. I got to experience the joy of newness, of being able where before I was not, for a second time. This joy is usually only felt the one time, but I'm feeling it all again. The poetry in that gives pause, reminds me to give thanks. This time there's even more gratitude, even more respect for the process, the divine gift of Yoga. My teachers arrived the very moment I needed them, as they have done and will continue to do. From the sky of my heart I rejoice and give thanks. #healed #healing #yoga #inversionjunkie #vagusnerve #hamstrings #workisplay #grateful #practice #myriadgardens #civiccenteryogis

You're always within your own reach. You don't need to see the toe to grasp it. You don't need to see the tree to mimic it's height. You don't need the love to be returned to make it real. Love is as real as the toe, and even easier to grasp.

I'm not sure what you see here. I see a practice still in recovery. I see a thousand tell tale signs of my different self, my changed practice. I see a hand that's losing its fear. I see that tree behind me still. I feel equal parts at home and abroad. From my mat to yours. #adhomukhavrksasana #naturalhabitat #myriadbotanicalgardens #parkyogi #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #introvert

Here I am using dynamic tension between hand and foot engagements to establish balance and stability in the pose. You can't see it, save by my breath, but there's a lot of energy flowing across this. #lunchflow #parkyogi #civiccenteryogis #devonenergyyogis #naturalhabitat #playtime #adhomukasvanasana

First day back, after nearly a year of healing. Home again home again. I love my practice in this spot. #parkyogi #myriadbotanicalgardens #naturalhabitat #devonenergyyogis #civiccenteryogis #playtime #lunchflow #duckflow

#uttkatasana Chair pose variation. I've backed off the depth for now to focus on lifting my chest and strengthening my back. I only sit as far down as possible while lifting my heart and my eyes. It's what was intended for us all. #nofilter #becauseciviccenter #civiccenteryogis #civiccenterokc #parkyogi Thank you, @landfxr for the great shot.

Neat shadow play in transition. Always in transition. #always #noteasy #civiccenteryogis #parkyogi #deardebbie
