"My practice does not end when I roll up my mat. In fact, often, this is when it really begins." - @forloveofthepaint
"My practice does not end when I roll up my mat. In fact, often, this is when it really begins. And with it I take the reminder that there is no part of me that is not welcome here.
This offering of compassion for self, of intelligent discernment without judgement, and the curious observations of svadhyaya (self study) are my gifts to myself.
Today my mantra is this:
Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu. "May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all." And sometimes, self love looks like a morning walk in the greenbelt, in the rain, with a mala of rose quartz and rhodonite. Because I can only pour when my vessel has been filled.
Namaste. 🌎 💖🌳🙏 #selfcare #selflove #mala #fitness #health #wellness #yogisurprise"
