Handstand workshop!!! -
Saturday April 15th, 11am-1pm
I've had enough interest (thank you!) in hosting another very small and intimate handstand workshop here in Austin. Pablo and I can only take 8 maximum so if interested comment below or email me at gypsyon@gmail.com to reserve your spot. -
These are two hour intensive classes where two instructors will be giving you personal one on one attention and feedback on your practice. $50 per person for the two hours. No experience necessary but a basic understanding and consistent yoga practice will facilitate greatly. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

I have grown into a better person because of small things that happened in my life recently. I somehow see my life differently now. One of the most significant changes is I enjoy things I used to hate, like ironing clothes. It's so calming and relaxing. But if you want me to iron for you, I have to say thanks but no thanks ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

I think ultimately our sole purpose, that is, our 'soul& #39; purpose, Is to find a way to love ourselves unconditionally. That is, without ANY conditions. Whatsoever.
In turn, we eventually become so full of love it just oozes out of us and overflows unto others. โค๏ธIf i take a moment to think of the world that could be created if we all lived with this awareness and intention, well I imagine everything would be at the least a little easier.. and at best... well..

"I don't know whether to thank you or curse you!" is what a friend and student once jokingly said to me. He had taken his first ever Yoga class with me and this, of course, had changed his life for the better (or so it seemed). The problems came because he could no longer live in the corporate world and since he loved Yoga so much the obvious decision was to become a yoga teacher. However, after some time he realised that he loved practicing Yoga, but teaching was another thing altogether, and actually, after a while the teaching made him lose his passion for his own practice, and before long the 'honeymoon& #39; period with Yoga was over. Jaded and confused, he was left without the love of Yoga anymore, but also knowing that the corporate world was not where he wanted to be.
This is not an isolated story. I have seen this happen time and time again. Becoming a yoga teacher is not an easy path and it's not everybody's calling. Most of the teachers that I know who have found that it is their path were actually not focused on making a career out of it, but rather, were focused on the exploration of their own practice - and the teaching happened spontaneously because of that. Just like in this photo, it's as if the heavens and the planets align, and you just know that you are doing exactly what you were meant to be doing.
As for my friend, he did return to the corporate world, got married and has two beautiful children, and as far I know, is living a wonderful and beautiful life. As it seems, the Yoga found him in another way, and his purpose in life too. So, even though the yoga practice as such, was not his calling, I have no doubt that it played a meaningful role in determining the course of his life. ๐Ÿ™

Salty conversations with this kid. He'll never truly know how much these moments mean to me โœจ

I often get asked for tips about handstands.
So here it goes: Try everything. Try and try and try.
There's so many good drills out there, but at the end it comes down to practice and patience, practice and patience. I would say practice and notice the changes. Even if you can't hold a handstand, the practice will make you strong, no matter what.
And yes, I know you have heard this a thousand times, but, #enjoythejourney

Well this is exciting!! โ˜บ๏ธ

Ice-cold hands woke me up this morning and sunbeams kisses me goodnight. That is balance - it's the Yin to the Yang, the Mrs to the Mr, the "whatever& #34; to the "whatever& #34; ... Appreciate every little thing when it's good or less good, then life will be awesome. Cold hands get warmer after a while... ;) and when shit turns sideways then sideways is a new perspective, and who knows what "sideways& #34; will bring you when you've mastered it?! Just feel the yoga high ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #namaste #contemplate #epiphany #lifestyle #yogateacher #yogaeverydamnday #sunbeam #รถstersund #fitness #stayweird #staypositive #beyourself #happyday #loveyourself #justbreathe #feeltheyogahigh #yogahigh #plantingseeds #lifeincolor #lifeisgood

My yoga teacher training at @brahmaniyoga in Anjuna, India last year. I am so grateful to @berry_yoga_shala for all the wonders i learnt with her !!

It was Danae's turn to join me for work and it was high adventure. She played like a puppy during our session and then during clean up we lost track of each other. Danae went off to find me in the wrong direction and ended up taking a tour of the college until she found herself at registration. A lil anxiety happening on my end and with the way she's sleeping now I'd say it was the same for the both of us. #agirlandherdog

Day 23 of the 30 Day Challenge with @thebettyrocker and I am seeing some definition in my abs again. You kicked my ass today but totally LOVE IT!!! I look forward to your workouts everyday & love the energy you bring with your fun & funky personality @thebettyrocker!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผโœ”๏ธโœจโœจ๐Ÿ˜˜

In prep for India, I'm on a course of herbal medicine from the wonderful and inspiring Caroline @herbsandhealing and I'm also taking kefir a couple of days a week. Last time I was determined not to need vaccinations or meds for the trip so I went 80% vegan, took vitamin and protein supplements and brought a kit of homeopathic remedies. I used the homeopathy kit once for altitude headache! Im not about detoxing because I'm so light and work like a mad woman, so I prefer to add things in than detox. This is my first time taking kefir on the regular and making it myself so I'm excited. Kefir is basically fermented milk, by cultivating kefir grains in normal milk (or coconut milk!) you neutralise all the bad stuff, lactose, sugar etc and make it into a probiotic, mineral rich drink that has all kinds of good effects on skin, digestion, allergies, is antibacterial and helps with bone health! Here I'm drinking kiefer, frozen strawberry, apple and a spirulina/machta/hemp protein mix.
