"If āsanas are being practiced in class, we have a tendency to compare ourselves with others. We notice someone is more limber than we are, and that comparison creates dissatisfaction. Yet the practice of āsanas is not a sporting contest." / #yoga #tkvdesikachar #desikachar #theheartofyoga #thefoundationsofyogapractice #avidya

We are starting our week off with lessons in anatomy, the Yoga Sutras, chakra studies, and more – not to mention delicious healthy food, nature, new friends, and lots of laughter. It doesn’t get much better than this…

Through the practice of yoga, we awaken the layers of our being to detox our bodies, minds and spirits. We gain new understanding of our positive and negative thoughts and behaviors.
How does your yoga practice reveal your inner self to you? And how does that help you let go of whatever’s not serving your highest good?

“Yoga attempts to create a state in which we are always present-really present-in every action, in every moment.” -T. K. V. Desikachar .

I had a little cheeky fun with this one. / "Avidyā can be understood as the accumulated result of our many unconscious actions, the actions and ways of perceiving that we have been mechanically carrying out for years. As a result of these unconscious responses, the mind becomes more and more dependent on habits until we accept the actions of yesterday as the norms of today." - from The Heart of Yoga; by T. K. V. Desikachar. / #yoga #sangha #theheartofyoga #avidya #avidyaisabitch #tkvdesikachar #desikachar #doyoga

In other words. / "Avidyā can be understood as the accumulated result of our many unconscious actions, the actions and ways of perceiving that we have been mechanically carrying out for years.

Posting a picture per day of a cover of a book. Without explaining why I liked or enjoyed the book. #bookworm

There comes a time when you turn away from what you thought your life should be, and you look at what it really is. When this happens, invite your life into your arms and love it like there's no tomorrow. Because there isn't. There's only today.

A mellow kirtan... led by a sweet boy. 💕 Kirtan is so simple and so attractive that children are easily drawn to it. When families sing meditation sound together, they nurture deep bonding, trust, and understanding. It's easy to learn. Our meditation classes are always free! 🙏🏼

Painted Sky
I dance beneath you.
I sing softly in the breeze
So no one hears me
But the birds and bees and the silly tumble weeds.
Painted Sky.
I sleep beneath you.
I watch every star shooting by in your majestic canvas of whose art no one has truly yet to capture,
Entirely.
Painted Sky
I sit beneath you.
I no longer ask questions like, “why?”
Now I understand.
There’s no searching.
There’s nothing to find.
It’s all right here, tucked safely inside.
The same majestic canvas I flew in on and find comfort in - this glorious Painted Sky.
• •
When I asked my students what part of nature they loved most, not one person said, “Me.”
This broke my heart, as it’s not a trick question.
You ARE Nature.
You ARE the Painted Sky.
You ARE Divinity.
Accept no substitutes.
Get out and LIVE!
You don’t NEED another “immersion” to “find yourself” or “connect with nature.”
You ARE NATURE.
You Are PEACE.
You ARE LOVE
You are LOVED.
You are immersed in LOVE.
Love.
Now go on and give yourself a tight squeeze and stop comparing yourself to others when you and I both know - you too are the PAINTED SKY.
All my love,
Always♥️
G🙏🏼🧡🔆🧡
