🤸🏼‍♂️"The more we come out and do good to others, the more our hearts will be purified, and god will be in them" 🔑And that's one of the reasons I practice #Asana so much so when im outside the mat I can treat people and situations with love and compassion. Few days ago when GuruJi asked me, what you want to become in life? , I answered: A better person, that's not affected by the outer circumstances but yet just keep on a peaceful and loving heart ♥️. Im not saying its easy but it totally worths trying. Because that's what I really care in life, the rest is yet to come. 🙌🏼 #yoga #yogagirl #rishikesh #yogathoughts

Постигая премудрости жизни и вырастая как личность - мы становимся интересны себе и вызываем интерес у других❤️

A few years ago, I heard @devsdevelopment talk about the concept of guiding questions. I came up with two questions that help me make decisions: •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
✔️ Is it possible?
✔️ Is it beneficial? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Ex: Barista is rude at the coffee shop.
IS IT POSSIBLE to reply kindly and not snap back or form an attitude? ✔️ Yes.
IS IT BENEFICIAL to do this thing that I've now identified as possible? ✔️ Yes.
To her, because she received kindness on a rough day. To me, because I'm not carrying around negative energy.
•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
Do you have guiding questions that help you avoid things you don't want to do (be rude, not show people you value them enough, not welcome in new potentially positive relationships) and move towards things you do? What can you ask yourself daily, or in key moments, to make sure you're as present as possible when making choices? •••••••••••••••••••••••❔•••••••••••••••••••••••
Also: Do you have time/hobbies that allow you to reflect or are you moving so much that you don't really talk to yourself about meaningful improvements you can make in the way you view and treat the world? This can be a tough question to answer honestly. But if you have a few moments, maybe analyze? •••••••••••••••••••••••❔•••••••••••••••••••••••
Do you want some minimally hippie meditations and creativity exercises to help? I may have something for you soon.

Love my yoga buddy @ricky_yogaformartialarts and photog @emmanuelphotoartist.

Bliss.
It’s a layer of existence, a perspective you choose to see the world from.
Just because it’s there you don’t have to choose it all the time, but knowing that you can smile at all the nonsense and beauty life throws at you is a relief in its own right.
We can’t always control life, but we can control how we view it.
It’s a medicine to be used wisely.
Not a path of escapism.
May your bliss be your valued tool ✨

A student with a fractured shoulder and sprained wrist came to class tonight. " I can't do much but I wanted to be here, your energy always relaxes me," she said. This obviously flattered me but especially reminded of how we hold space for one another. Sometimes being in the company of someone and having genuine intentions for their well-being can do wonders for our soul. Also not fearing silence, or feeling the need to have small talk. Just being with another humans energy, submerging in that unspoken depth with utmost sincerity are ways we can heal and lift each other.

Letting go... the hardest asana! #yogathoughts

In learning to ask questions that propel growth••
Not what am I going to get out of this practice.
But what am I going to give to this practice.

Taking this pic was SO funny! What you see is the opposite of the truth. Dice was pretending to work hard and I'm pretending the balancing on him is easy. Either way...it was hilarious and fun! Fun is something that I find many yogis forget to have when they teach or even practice. There is value in structure and dedication but I check myself when I get too serious as I find it makes me rigid. What are your thoughts on the different between structure and rigidity? #yogathoughts #balance #fun #relationshipgoals 📸 @actionhiro Wearing @aloyoga

Thank you @marymary87 for snapping this pic while you were here in nyc. I was scrolling through my albums and found it all over again. My J cup from @tudgie, our new-ish apartment, practically matching morning outfits and “breakfast making stance” with @corvoduarte 💜 This picture, from who is behind the camera to what is in front of it, fills my heart with love. I am grateful. I am proud. I am humbled. I have experienced so much in this lifetime and hope to experience a lifetime more. Every moment for good or bad has helped shape me into who I am today. Am I pleased for those negative or hurtful moments... no... but I know I would not be as strong as I am today without them. We can survive and when we do we blossom. #yoga #yogathoughts #thoughts #offthetop #throwback #mondaymemories #matching #meamor #home #yoga #yogafit #yogalife #yogalove #friendsforever #friendsforlife #metoo #mug #brooklyn #bayridge #strength #selfstrength #coffee #jcup #breakfast #memories

I realised to fully feel gratitude is a highly evolved act. Most of us feel it only conditionally. Its felt somewhat like this -- I-am-very-grateful-but-I-wish ..so there most often is a "but" which means things are good but u wish it were better. And also when we say we feel grateful what exactly is the flavour of that feeling...how does gratitude feel? So if we don't feel it but just mouth it does it still have a right to be labelled gratitude? #ardhagomukhpaschimottananasana #halfcowfaceforwardbend #boatvariation #yogathoughts #yogaeverydamnday #yogadaily #yogini #yogibhogirogi #yogalife #yogaliving #yogalove #yoga #yogaforoverthe #fabfifties #yogateacher

How can we expect to fully love each other, when we continue to put ourselves on a higher pedestal than those who know love in loves purest form. How can we seek gender equality, race equality, when we cannot seem to grasp the fact that exploitation of any living being is inevitably exploitation of ourselves? When we go out of our way to step on an ant making his way from one side of the room to the next. I wonder if the ant was seeking shelter, if his stomach was rumbling and he just wanted a midnight snack, if he was looking for another ant to go on a midnight stroll. And then the human takes his foot and squashes his current existence. I wonder if the ant reincarnates as a butterfly, this time considered beautiful by the masses. Still inevitably, just an ant taking on different form. Could have very well come back again as you, as I. This time instead of being squashed, he is caught with a net and put in a glass jar. Confused, the butterfly crouches in the corner of the jar, watching noses and cheeks press up against the glass, staring at her wings, as if they were a foreign thought. I wonder, in that moment, if she would rather be an ant, and risk the human footprint.

I realize this isn’t a “yoga” photo, but it got me thinking nonetheless... this is the first snow we’ve ever encountered in this home. I’m thankful for many reasons: 1. We didn’t lose power 2. It was absolutely beautiful. •


While most were probably building snowmen or sipping something warm inside, I was admiring the view. Not getting mad when my dog Bo messed up the perfectly fallen snow with his footsteps. •


As we enter into the holiday season, take a breath of fresh air and admire the beauty. We’re only here for maybe 80 years on this earth. Don’t miss it.

Ce soir je partage avec vous la lumière que j’ai capturée un matin cette semaine🌅Cette lumière qui nous irradie et qui nous réchauffe 🔥La lumière qui se trouve en chacun de nous et qui parfois a du mal à briller. Alors pour cette nouvelle semaine qui arrive, qui va être encore plus stressante avec les fêtes qui se rapprochent à grands pas, laissez votre lumière intérieure briller et nourrissez la encore plus que d’habitude ☀️🧡🙏

the category for the tenth day of the #12daysofasanas challenge is #backbend pose. I chose a forearm variation of wheel pose!
.
it’s already the last day of the #randomaffirmationsofkindness challenge. today’s mantra is: “I choose kindness always”.
.
ah, kindness. what a simple way to tell another struggling soul that there’s love to be found in this world! no beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart, so keep sprinkling kindness everywhere you go!

.
What you want more than anything, is the very same thing that perpetually slips through your fingers.
And just as you free your mind from that desire, and it no longer occupies your mind, that very same thing inevitably crosses your path.
.
It's at that point we rejoice, having finally gotten the very thing we've been wanting for so long.
But the second we rejoice, we've once again developed the 'want', setting up the very mindset that will inevitably cause it to slip through our fingers again.
.
This, is the paradox of want.
.
.
.
.
.
So ask yourself, what are some of the things you really want?

oben und unten, hoch und tief, drunter und drüber...glücklich und traurig, selbstsicher und verunsichert, motiviert und antriebslos...! so viele verschiedene gefühlslagen durchlebe ich jeden tag. werde überrumpelt und überfordert, positiv beeinflusst und bestärkt. jeden reiz sauge ich auf, jede situation nehme ich genau unter die lupe. zerdenke.
geräusche, gerüche, emotionen prasseln ungefiltert auf mich ein, bestimmen meine laune, ermöglichen oder verbauen mir verschiedene erfahrungen.
es gibt momente da ist die unruhe kaum auszuhalten...manchmal ist es die ruhe nicht.
yoga erdet mich, beruhigt, stärkt und motiviert mich. Lässt mich verschnaufen, zur ruhe kommen, reizfrei sein. nur mit mir sein.
einmal alles auf pause. einmal kurz anhalten. durchatmen. genießen das ich sein darf und mit wem ich sein darf. genießen was ich spüren darf und gespannt sein, was ich noch alles erleben darf.

happy saturday!🥀
.
the category for day 9 of the #12daysofasanas challenge is #hollowback pose. I attempted it with a handstand with a little help from the wall (😌)
.
today’s mantra for the #randomaffirmationsofkindness challenge is: “I choose thoughtfulness over thoughtlessness”
.
everybody has a chapter they don’t want to read out loud. today, be mindful of your choice in words and actions. you don’t always see the chaos the other person is going through. we can all work on being more aware + compassionate towards other beings 💖.
.
what are some areas in your life where you can incorporate this idea of thoughtfulness? would love to hear some of your thoughts🤗.

Check out this interview I did with @acstonebraker for @tribegrow!

As early as he can remember, Adam Stonebraker (@acStonebraker) had a passion for introspection, and it has colored his life ever since. Through many years of meditation and study, Adam came to understand that a life lived mindfully is a life lived with intention.
.
Today, he is a teacher of meditation, yoga, and mindfulness based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Through sharing these ancient but scientific practices, Adam seeks to empower his students to live fuller lives.
.
This week's guest writer, Kesse Hodge, interviewed Adam to learn more about his yoga journey, career path to date, and his mission to teach people how to find balance through the ancient yet scientific practices of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga.

I met a woman today that reminded me so much of myself. I could feel her strength and her struggle, but most importantly her will to get back up after being knocked down. We share some of the same physical ailments and it reminded me of that moment I made the decision to say no to letting myself go. It reminded me of when I decided to accept my new normal. I was reminded of how I changed my diet, stopped running, but most importantly, started to look inward for the answers instead of everywhere else. She reminded me that just a short time ago I couldn’t lift my leg like it is in this picture. She reminded me of when I turned the lights on and started to be present.

for the eighth day of the #12daysofasanas challenge, the category is #hipopener pose. I choose half pigeon pose {eka pada rajakapotasana}. I love hip openers because they help me release all the stored emotional energy in my body!
.
for the #randomaffirmationsofkindness challenge, today’s mantra is: “I choose positivity over pessimism”.
.
Mother Teresa said it best, “spread love everywhere you go. let no one ever come to you without leaving happier”. I like to believe that I practice what I preach when it comes to positivity. I hope people can feel the strong positive energy I am constantly sending out into our universe✨.

Here’s a little #pigeonpose slow flow and stretch sequence to get those cheeky winter muscles moving without too much energy burning out, give it a go!?✌🏽💜if we stopped to look at nature then we could learn some stuff about winter: as the weather gets cold and light gets minimal, nature retreats. It stores its energy and slows down almost to a stop. Trees shed leaves they don’t need anymore to make space for the new that will come, when the light returns. So why do we fight it!? Exhausting ourselves working against our natural instinct to slumber, rest & Restore. I’m going to listen, slow down and conserve my energy for new movements in the new year, this planet’s done more winters than I have, I reckon she’s the expert ... 🕉🔮#yogathoughts #yogaflow #yogaminiflow #yogasequence #yogadiary #yoginilife #yogini #yogisofinstagram #yogainspo #winteryoga #retreatandrestore #restorativeyoga #healingyoga #spiritualandallthat #yogithoughts #yogalife #yogaliving #yogateacher #yogaflow #vinyasaflow #keeponmovin

Letting go... the hardest asana! #yogathoughts

If you were faced with the prospect of spending one final Christmas with someone you loved how would that shape the time you spent with them, it most certainly wouldn't be about the gifts underneath the tree and would most definitely be all about the little things that can't be bought.
We are approaching a time of year where there's stress and pressure to buy the perfect gift for loved ones to show them just how much they mean to us. The truth is no gift can ever demonstrate the depth of feeling we have for someone. This year I'm aiming to demonstrate my love not by how much I've spent on gifts but on giving generously the things that can't be bought but mean so much more. So many of us are so busy running from one thing to the next that lets face it it's difficult to give uninterrupted presence 100% of the time, over the festive period lets aim to not fill it with stuff to be done but to share special moments with our loved ones where we are totally present, after all it's the best present there is.
Time is so precious and we often leave it too late to tell people how much they mean to us, how they have impacted our lives in small and not so small ways, the ways they have shaped us, things they have said that have stayed with you, times that they may have forgotten about but have stayed with you throughout time. What a beautiful gift to tell people how much they mean to you, in spoken or written form and not in the usual amount of money you spend on them in the shop.

Because people may fall short, but that doesn’t mean they’re not trying. Quote by @popafatt #yogathoughts #empathy #compassion #w_o_o

the category for day 7 of the #12daysofasanas challenge is #bound pose. tbh, I don’t think this one is a real pose? I was playing around with a bind with my warrior poses and decided to try it with a crescent lunge (?). either way it still felt good in my body ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
.
today’s mantra for the #randomaffirmationsofkindness challenge is: “I choose honesty over deceit”
.
we are all aware that nothing good comes from lying (+ that also goes hand in hand with not telling the whole truth). in the end, the truth always finds its way to the surface & people’s feelings get hurt.
.
what I’m currently working on is not lying to myself. in order to speak my truth to others, I need to become aware of my own bullshit. I need to stop lying to myself that I’m ok, when I clearly need help. I need to stop telling myself that ‘I can’t’, when I know I am capable. and so on, I know you get the gist.
.
I am working on demolishing every lie I’ve ever believed in about myself. I am working on not being afraid of my truth. I am working on accepting and embracing my past, to feel wholesome within my body, so I can continue to speak my truth to others.
.
when was the last time you lied to yourself? can you work on becoming more aware of your thoughts to stop it next time?

Living in a time where our lives are so full and often involve high stress scenarios on a daily basis (hourly for some people) means that I no longer seek the same intensity in my yoga practice that I used to. I would rather take care of my cells and use my yoga practice to arouse my parasympathetic nervous system (calm, relaxed safe) than my sympathetic nervous system (fight or flight, fear, danger). If your yoga practice becomes so much about “exercise” there’s a good chance that you’re killing your yoga as the union it’s meant to create is lost amongst all the heavy tensing, stretching and breathing. #yogaunion #parasympathetic #lesstress #yogatherapy #yogamom #yogamum #yogathoughts #yogaforthebody #yogaforthesoul #yogaforthewin #yogagirl #ustrasana #camelpose #stressless #sunshinecoastyoga #thewellhealth #yogaaustralia

Can I be honest?
Lately, I’ve been in this state of studying myself. I’ve been acknowledging that I’m more than this body and/or my experiences, but like I’m actually this wave in the collective sea of us all. It’s been blowing my freaking mind. It’s been have an impact on my classes. Like, I’m not this object or Andrea (my name), or a body...I’m a part of it all, ALL OF IT. We all are a part of it.
My thoughts while taking this picture were a little different though. I kept thinking to myself that I couldn’t believe I smelled as bad as I did. Hot yoga pulls something interesting things out of ones system.
Anywho, thank you to everyone who comes to my classes and rocks out with me. I know this week has been intense, but it’s because of my thoughts on the question of “who am I?” or “who are you?” You are a wave in the sea. If the water is rough or calm, you are still existent, and you are still here, never ending, a constant part of the universe. 💜

“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do.” -Rumi
In the past 11 years of teaching Yoga, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs.
The challenges have always been there—From barely making any money and having to get second jobs just to pay the bills. Or dealing with creepy men who turned into stalkers. Or figuring out how to help people who show up in a bad mood, or in a state of trauma or on the verge of breakdown. Or moving to a new place and having to hustle to build classes up. Or moving to a new place pregnant and having studios brush me off without experiencing my teaching. Or just simply defending what i do, that it’s not some weird witchcraft or religion. The challenges have been there in some big ways.
Never have I ever felt this gig wasn’t for me. There is nothing else I’ve ever done that has brought me more into the present moment. There has never been something that has brought me this much joy and sense of fulfillment. When I teach i feel empowered to express myself fully in the most creative ways. Beyond that, i am grateful for the transformations I see in the people who attend my classes. Whether it’s something I said that helped bring them closer to their own light, or just seeing people find awareness within themselves that they never had before- it’s magical.
So the tough situations, they will always be there. But when you truly love what you do, nothing can hold you back. You will know when you find your dharma or your purpose. A light will be lit that can never be dimmed. ✨

I’ve always had that little fear of going upside down. Even dancing my whole life. Handstands were my nemesis 😡. I don’t like feeling unstable, or off balance, or like I might fall. So if I stay on my feet all is fine 👌🏻😂. This year I started facing some fears on and off my mat, starting with incorporating a tiny bit of handstand practice every day. It’s definitely a work in progress but hey, so am I 🙋🏼😆.

One of the things i have re-learned recently is to enjoy every moment in its purity and beauty as it is, not to idealize, pretend, just to see things the way they are. The good and the bad both equaly.
On the way i learned:
ANGER manifests when we can't accept the situation as it is, when we can - it becomes ACCEPTANCE.

No rain, no flowers.
Samatvam yoga uchyate ~ equipoise while doing the action - and also when going through the pleasant or unpleasant results - this equanimity is yoga.

Day 8: Head up, look up.

It has occurred to me that alignment doesn’t just refer to your wrist lining up to your elbow, elbow lining up to the shoulder. I need to learn to align my intentions with my actions. I want to learn, so I have to listen without judgment. I want to be positive, so I have to smile. Alignment. .

I cannot say one thing that I love most about yoga since I’m still discovering everyday something new. Perhaps that’s what I love the most, the constant learning, seeking, digging, improving, listening, searching that it’s the path, the journey.
When I think I know something I find there is so much more to learn.
I’m somewhere between a Crow and a Crane somedays and others I feel nowhere near either. Isn’t that just the way? .

[#IByoga]
I used to want to plan and control everything, but I only ended up being frustrated or disappointed when things didn't work out as I imagined. So I started saying 'yes' to the present moment and surrendering to what is. 🙏 Since then I noticed how things suddenly started working for me rather than against me.
🕉
So sometimes surrender means giving up trying to understand and becoming confortable with not knowing. Start with saying yes to life and let me know how it goes!😎 #ingridbottskiyoga #yogashapes #yogashapesus #lifeshapesus #yogagirl #yogateacher #yogathoughts #yogainspiration #inspiredyogi #yogainbali #explorebali #traveltheworld #travelyogi #surrender #thepresentmoment #yestolife #life #onebreathatatime

Когда понимаешь, что с самого утра окружён заботой, то даже самые дерзкие асаны становятся по плечу💪

I feel like everything is slowly falling into place for me. Or all of my prayers and wishes have been answered or revealed in the oddest ways recently. I feel strong mentally and I am on the path of getting my body to feeling strong again as well. I have a few goals set for this month, and I am looking forward to seeing how I feel by the new year. It feels so weird to say that. Where has the time gone? But it’s not too late to make the best of 2017 while you can. Reach for your dreams and set a simple goal to complete by the new year to make you feel good about yourself. Even if it’s creating a small to do list. Namaste and happy holidays! 🤗 Photo Credit from my sister: @grant.100

What would happen if we actually went after what set our souls on fire? If we swallowed the fear, took the step, began the journey? If we stopped dreaming and woke up to make a reality? What would happen?
