Shanna Small ❤️Yoga Teacher  Living and teaching yoga as a path to peace and joy

First day of rest since getting back from practicing #yoga with Sharath in Miami. Exactly what I needed.

Online Yoga Sutra classes start today.
I was lucky to have my first teachers. They taught the importance of understanding that #yoga is a spiritual practice. This stuck with me and fueled my quest to study the Sutras. Within its pages, I found wisdom that has stood firm even in the darkest times.
My faith in the Sutras comes from applying it to my life during the dark times. Sitting with the verses and letting them speak to my heart.
Part of my life’s path is to share them with you. The link is in the bio. Use code “shanna19” to get your first class free.

Mother is the first guru. Her heartbeat is the first mantra. A good mother teaches us about the beauty of surrender and trust. Our childhood is joyful because we surrendered to mother and allowed her to take care of all our needs.
Surrender is a tough concept for most. But in the appropriate situation, we thrive.

One more day in our #miami adventure. We got caught in a flash flood in #Wynwood last night. Cars were stranded in the street. Sounded like we were in a boat instead of a car. I am hoping for a totally calm boring afternoon lol!!! #miamilifecenter #blackyogini #ashtangi #crochetbraids #blackyogi #sharathtour2019

Just in case you needed to see this.

Just like our yoga practice, changes in the culture of yoga happen through daily consistent action. Just because people say their yoga communities are inclusive and diverse doesn’t mean that they actually are. You know how you know? Just look around. Then be 100% honest about what you see. Take responsibility for it. Own up to it. Go check out my podcast on racism in yoga on @ashtangadispatch

I walked around Miami today with 1/2 a face of makeup. Some girl at a makeup counter talked me into doing a makeup demo. After one side, she tried to talk me into $100 worth of makeup I would only wear like twice a year. I declined and walked out...just like this😝😝 #miami #crochetbraids

Enjoying the Mysore magic in Miami. At the end of last year, my right shoulder started to slide out of the socket. I have been doing PT since then. Tuesday, before the Sharath tour in Miami was the first time in like 6 months that I have done full second series #ashtanga with all my binds by myself. I was not sure how led Intermediate today was going to go but it was far better than I expected and I am physically starting to feel like myself again.

Me before I freaked out at the Blumenthal. I have a phobia of heights and my hubby didn’t realize how high up the seats were. The staff actually let me sit with the ushers to watch the show. Not a romantic date with the hubby but I appreciated the kindness.
