Virginia Hill  Teaching Yoga & Meditation to welcome awareness, internal peace, & overall delight. Lake City, FL, USA

That's a wrap!!! Winding down my working-traveling weekend by putting my feet up, with a sigh and deep smile... and glass of red on the porch. Got lots of editing done AND looking fwd to getting home to #northfloridaliving & back to my yoga peeps. Overjoyed to return to my yoga teaching hours with workshops, mentoring, our sunny Wednesday morning group, and another month of brewery yoga! & Don't forget my yoga for beginners AND my challenging yoga class, TAPAS, starts soon too. I have missed everyone!

Feeling incredibly grateful to do what I love! See you all soon.

How are you regenerating?

Wrapping up my time in Virginia. Not a bad way to spend a #weekend afternoon!

Loving my editing clients and their exciting projects, and also the fact that when it is time for a computer break, it can be taken at such a sweet spot, with a glass of vino, inspiring surroundings, and dear friend.

It is equally important for me to be attentive to my inner world: how does my mind wander and worry, even in these ideal circumstances? What are its habits? How can I apply this knowledge to less-than-perfect times? Or, are such labels also simply part of the mind's tendencies?

Perfect, soulful #fuel -- outer and inner -- for the fun, full weeks ahead! Strong reminder for me to #savor each moment, and also appreciate all that brought me here, and the mysteries ahead.

HAPPY EARTH DAY!!! "No two trees are the same to Raven. 
No two branches are the same to Wren. 
If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you, 
You are surely lost. Stand still. 
The forest knows Where you are. 
You must let it find you." ---David Whyte

Oh, she opened!
What small surprises are greeting you today?

Watching the subtle changes in and all around me. Today it was the subtle change in this tulip; she also puts herself to sleep at night.
Wishing you all a bright, delicately beautiful Sunday.

FOCUS on what is working beautifully! "The yoga aspirant does not waste time wondering where his samskaras [habits, unconscious tendencies & challenges] came from or how long s/he has had them; s/he accepts full responsibility for them & sets about trying to change them...To our thoughts of anger, desire, & delusion we must oppose thoughts of love, generosity, & truth." --Christopher Isherwood

I was reminded today in my morning practice how important it is to #notice and even #protect and #cultivate how & where my mind moves, AND how focusing on the good, true, and beautiful is an essential part of this process. Noticing the #beauty all around me and what IS working in my life is key.

I am settling in at my stop in rural Virginia, catching up with business correspondence and other tasks today, before balancing that with wine on the veranda and then a night of Shakespearean theater. My outdoor office presently includes this #spring beauty! Taking a few breaths to #nurture all that #supports me. This helps me consciously experience and #trust #awareness itself.

How about YOU? What IS working beautifully in your life, and how do YOU maintain and expand that focus?

What is your self talk like after a morning of snafus?!?! THAT says a lot about personal practice.
So, here it is: When you almost miss the plane and attempt an inconspicuous selfie! Just laughing at myself after 4 hours of a comedy of errors.

Oh, so humbling to be ever so human. As Dr. Carrie Demers would say, "Aren't we interesting?!" How about you: Anything you can laugh at today?? #laughteristhebestmedicine

" A clear, calm, one-pointed, friendly mind puts all the treasures of the world at our disposal, while a dense, agitated, scattered, confused, and unfriendly mind robs us of our most fundamental privilege—our intrinsic #joy and luminosity. That is why unveiling the mystery of the mind and attaining mastery over it is the most #auspicious and fulfilling activity we can undertake." --Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

Just finished my morning practice, and thrilled to be back with my #hometown #yogacommunity and returning to teaching today.

I am also noticing how challenging it is to retain a calm, focused mind whilst tired. And feeling on a visceral level what a precious tool the mind is, and how important it is to provide the care and conditions it needs.

We will definitively be doing both #gentle strengthening as well as #energizing practices!

What do YOU do to nurture and protect your precious mind during times of overload, surprises, or fatigue so that your #bestself unfolds and blossoms?

How do you reduce and even prevent suffering? What helps you shine?

Remember, our yoga practice is there to support us on ALL levels, and changes according to our needs. See you on the mat!

Snow today from the poconos!
From spring to winter in just 2 days; the inner journey is always just as surprising! Saying goodbye to my #yogahome at #HimalayanInstitute for now. The #joys of following one's deepest desires, receiving wise teachings, and integrating the inward focus cannot be described, only practiced.

Looking forward to returning to #Florida with renewed #passion for my personal #dailypractice

What is the relationship between your external and internal worlds today?
