Just casually waiting for a friend to arrive. No big deal. Everyone does L-sits while waiting. โœŒ๐Ÿ˜‚ It's always about perspective, you can be angry or irritated someone's late or that you are early. You can allow the negativity to affect you or you can change your energy and do something constructive about it. Thereby you are always at peace or in my case striving to be at peace.
Always remember it's about perspective. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ Photo credit: Shrijoo Kanoria

Movement never lies. It is a barometer telling the state of the souls weather to all those who know how to read it.
My schedule lately hasn't allowed for much of my own practice. I'm slammed with over 7 incredible clients daily, experiencing and watching them each reach their personal movement goals. With my busy schedule, I've put my own movement therapy on the back burner. It's my own fault, but today I had time to focus on myself and it was an incredibly peaceful and challenging time. Make time for yourself - I need to actively work on that!

DAY 10 of #YogiHowdYouDoThat is #LotusPose #Padmasana in #Shoulderstand

I'm super excited for this pose today! So glad it was suggested by you guys!! The first time I saw this pose @stephaniekicksbutt was rocking it and I LOVED the shape. I did, however, wonder how in the heck she got into it. ๐Ÿค” Swipe to see the how to video. This pose does require full lotus but you could do it by crossing your legs instead. Still not feeling it? Take a shoulder stand variation that you are comfortable in. Still not happy? Surprise us! ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜‚ Please warm up and take a variation that's right for you. Be sure to check out my gorgeous cohosts for their take on this pose. See you all in the gallery! . .

I have to move to feel like me

The sun is standing square on me

In these moments I lose focus

So never over complicate

Just know the way you operate
In these moments (Yesterday's burnout after grueling endurance training)

In today's world where stress catches on faster than the eye can see or the mind can perceive, meditation is no more a luxury. It is a necessity. To be unconditionally happy and to have peace of mind, and that's why for
Day 1๏ธโƒฃ4๏ธโƒฃ #yogahealingcrystals today we want you to tap into the power of meditation. Meditation is extremely beneficial for every part of our beingโ€”our mind, our body and our spirit. It helps us to relax, clears our mind and releases negative energy and unwanted thoughts. Using crystals for meditation is a powerful tool to deepen your meditation, as well as achieve a specific outcome during your meditation. You can use all the chakra crystals during meditation or just a few and then set the highest intention for their purpose.
After you have chosen your crystal, you are ready for your meditation. There is no right or wrong way to meditateโ€”just as there is no right or wrong crystal to useโ€”everyoneโ€™s meditations are unique. The best way to utilize your crystals during your meditation is to 1) hold them in your hands while meditating or 2) you may place them in a bowl or close to your body 3) lay them on your body, ideally so that they touch your skin.
Choose a time and place where there are no interruptions and
Wear comfortable clothes.ย  Keep your shoes off.ย  Lay down on the floor or lay down on your bed.ย Or sit up in a comfortable position if you can handle it. if you have the 7 healing crystals then place them in there right order ( which I have put in my comments if you would like to know more )

1. Close your eyes.ย  Take three deep breaths in your nose and out your mouth 2. Lay quietly for 15- 20 minutes If thoughts come into your head, let them come and go without any attachment.

3. When you're done, pick up the stones in REVERSE ORDER, starting with the quartz crystal, then the PURPLE stone, the BLUE stone, and so on.
Put your stones into a salt bath for 1 hour.ย that has 1 teaspoon of sea salt in it.ย  This cleanses them off.ย ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ โค๏ธ Hosts

Wait for it... fake out! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ stay humble. Little clip taken by my love @hoopalooper at @samseesworld & @fitqueenirene Fly intensive workshop. I CONSTANTLY preach about the term "self taught" . We can't possibly learn everything there is to learn on our own, the only reason that we ever feel the need to claim that everything we have achieved was by ourselves is to fuel our ego. Most people who are "naturals& #34; or self taught and as soon as they begin their practice they can immediately flip their grip in a pose... yeah okay but were they dancers? The people who can hold a handstand with no effort at all... but yeah were they a gymnast? They didn't watch a single you tube video? Or Instagram clip? Or read a tutorial? Or attend a workshop? Why do we feel the need to discredit those who have gotten us to where we are? Or even more, compare our journey to the journey of others? --------------------------------------------
For me, having a teacher (or two in this case) is the biggest fucking privilege I could ever have. To get to keep learning, and growing through my yoga practice and having someone who can SAFELY guide me there? Holy shit! Why is that something I would ever want to bypass? I'm so lucky to have teachers who can pick apart the areas of my practice that need work, and to show me how to step (or jump) outside of my comfort zone. โœจโœจ This was one of my first ever attempts of jumping back from crow to chatarunga, and today I can officially (though not gracefully) finally do it! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ eternally grateful for @samseesworld & @fitqueenirene and so excited for the next workshop THIS Saturday!!!

When life gives you rainy days, wear cute heels and jump in the puddles. โ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿ‘

For the month of April I have added a new class to my @sourcecorestudio schedule. I will teach a Foundations of Yoga class every Tuesday at 8:15pm-9:15pm in the month of April. If you are new to yoga or looking to get into yoga come check it out. Like, share or tag a friend who might also fit that description!
The description of the class is below:

Foundations of Yoga

It can difficult to enter a Vinyasa, Hatha, or even a beginners class and go through all the postures, when you are brand new to yoga. The "flow& #34; can sometimes be overwhelming for new students or beginner students.
This class is designed to help students have a better understanding of the postures that make up a yoga class. Each class we will work on a little breath and bandha work, activation of the transverse abdominal wall, and the postures. We will break down 4-6 postures a class, and work on proper alignment for each posture and how it can vary for each individual student. We will then talk about what it means to close out or take Savasana at the end of a yoga class.

The outline of the classes:
The first week of the month we will work on sun salutes
The second week of the month we will work on standing postures
The third week of the month we will work on seated postures
The fourth week of the month we will work on back bends

Day 9 #dropbackspringforward is dropping back at the wall. I didn't quite make it all the way, BUT, considering a) I've never tried this before, b) I've never been an athlete, dancer, cheerleader, gymnast or otherwise done anything other than yoga to take physical risks, c) I tend toward flare ups of tendinitis in my wrist and shoulder and thought it best to quit while I was ahead, especially considering I have a huge performance coming up soon, and d) I'm a big scaredy cat, I'm SUPER PROUD I got this far! This may be as far as I get for the time being with this challenge, but I can see how doing this more will get me there one day. YAY!
