⭐ BONES ⭐
▫️
We like to look at images such as this, a full human skeleton, and think that underneath our skin we all look exactly like this. It's super easy to do, to think we're all the same structurally, because that part of us pretty well goes unseen throughout our lives.
▫️
However, we must learn to recognize that just as we all have facial features that distinguish us from one another, so do we have structural features that are deeply unique to each individual.
▫️
Why does this matter?
▫️
Well, when doing various forms of movement activities, such as yoga, we take an approach that all to often assumes we are all the same under the skin.
▫️
"Point your toes forward", "Roatate your arms out", "Have your hands shoulder width apart".
▫️
In yoga we hear these cues and assume we have the bones to do what is being instructed. At some point or another, you're going to come up against a cue that just seems impossible. Sure you could have tightness stopping you, but it's just as likely to be your bones. One can be changed with time and practice, the other cannot. It's important that we understand the difference!
▫️
Want to learn more about your own structural anatomy? Are you a teacher and would like to understand how to better serve your students by having structural variation knowledge under your belt? Check out my teacher training modules. Each one as a major joint focus where we analyze bones and their movements to see how all bodies are unique. It's fascinating and oh so important!

Is this rooster giving me stink eye or is it just me?? I absolutely love this place. Their buddha bowls are amazing, and they have frozen rose freezer pops...need I say more??? Also, they were nice enough to let me jump on their bar and play with #ekapadakoundinyasana. How about you guys come play Saturday morning 830am @invokestudioindy downtown. It'll be a hoot!!! #loveinvoke #loveindy #indyyogi #indydoesyoga #317yogis #yogisthatplay #loveyourtribe #armbalance #cyogalabrat

On our path towards our goals/dreams we often get stopped along the way by fears. These fears can be based in the future or the past, in fantasy or reality, in the physical, mental or emotional realms and so on. Our fears are limited only by our imagination.
▫️
The trouble is not that we have fear, for fear is natural and healthy. It is instead that we think fear must be absent to move forward. This is what keeps us stuck in hold patterns; never willing to take off. ▫️
Can you learn to make space in your life for fear to be your traveling companion? Let it help you to navigate the waters of life instead of hold you back from living? ▫️

💛 Pontoon Pose 💛
▫️
A lovely posture to release the hip flexors, quads and abdomen as well as gentle compression on the low back. Can be done with a block at any height or for a more restorative experience, with a bolster. It is always an option to do this pose with the knees slightly or completely bent which removes the pulling aspects on the front of the body, but is still a wonderful back bending posture.
▫️
In class this week, we'll continue down the road toward Dragon Splits or Monkey. Taking it one step at a time to make our way toward something bigger than we might have imagined ourselves going. The practice is about baby steps, to show us that when we move forward methodically toward a goal a solid version of it will slowly come to fruition.
▫️
Only two classes with me this week at @invokestudioindy. So don't miss out!
▫️
Yin - Tongiht - Invoke North - 7:00p
Yin - Wednesday - Invoke Downtown - 7:00p
▫️
Note: Warm Yin on Sunday is canceled due to the holiday weekend.

What me and my #ohmies do on a Friday night... no big deal😁 love these ladies. A big thank you to @emma.rhiannon for the amazing workshop and @dmbyogini for holding space where magic like this can happen. #scorpionpose #yoga #cyogalabrat #loveinvoke #loveindy #indyyogi #indydoesyoga #317yogis #yogisthatplay #loveyourtribe #backbends #mychinisstillsore

When you approach your goals, do you do it in leaps and bounds? Or do you get stuck before you even start? I personally have a tendency to want to leap before I look which has gotten me into a few pickles over the years. 😏
So, over the years, I've learned to pause and back track through all the baby steps it takes to get to where I am going, then I start there.
▫️
For the next month in my classes, we're going to baby stepping our way toward a goal, Dragon Splits (or Monkey). Starting with poses that seemingly have nothing to do with the end goal, but are nonetheless preparing the body and energy for where it is headed.
▫️
Join me as we move one step at a time toward something fun and exciting!

Yesterday and today I got a little more dressed up than normal, as I had the pleasure of talking about the benefits of Yoga in terms of health and wellness to over 250 people from all over the country in a webinar with a corporate wellness program. Thank you so much for the opportunity to share my passion for this lifestyle with you all! I truly love what I do - the aspects of business ownership and yoga teaching, both! If your company is looking for yoga classes or a lecture or has an upcoming wellness fair or anything where I can come beam this love from my heart, shoot me an email! Thanks y’all. 💜📿🙏🏽 #breathingspaceyoga #belove #loveindy #keepindyindie

Without suffering, we wouldn’t know how to be happy. It is our greatest teacher, but don’t dwell in it; move from suffering into joy. Let go of the idea of how things “should” be and simply accept them as they are. #breathingspaceyoga #belove #ramdass

I had the BEST time at the @lululemon ambassador photo reveal party! The team at #lululemonkeystone so graciously welcomed me into their ambassador family back in August, and the photos up in the store make it oh so special! Go pop into the store to meet the amazing lululemon staff, see my face on the wall, and get the best leggings EVER (I prefer the align pant)! 😉#lululemonambassador #lululemon #indyyoga #indydoesyoga

This! This is why I don't have a fancy car or a house filled with expensive gadgets. Many years ago I started to recognize that those things are veils that act as disguises for happiness, but true happiness can't be found through tangible things. ▫️

Wow! What an incredible week of training with @cyogalab and @moises_chi at The Lab in Chicago! I participated in this last year as well and, ever since, have practiced and taught almost 100% strictly the cYoga method. I can tell you, from how I felt at the end of the training last year, to how I feel now, this is the most effective yoga style I’ve found. Watching students of ALL levels, shapes and mobility come into Breathing Space and practice with me and our monthly 2-hour classes with @emma.rhiannon, it is accessible yet challenging. Carmen truly believes there is always a new way to put a spin on something, so when you’ve found the “full expression” of a pose, your limits don’t end. I am so incredibly grateful to call these two my teachers; everything they have brought to my life - in asana, teaching and meditation - has propelled me towards greatness. Thank you, Carmen and Moises, for teaching us in your studio. I can’t wait to welcome you to OUR space this October!!!! #breathingspaceyoga #cyogalab #belove #keeppracticing
