Lost Stand still. The trees ahead and the bushes beside you Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here, And you must treat it as a powerful stranger, Must ask permission to know it and be known. The forest breathes. Listen. It answers, I have made this place around you, If you leave it […]

Holidays are coming up and that means two things- Stress and Food! Remember to be a good yogi and not sweat the small stuff! Don’t stress, everything will be ok! Just breathe and practice patience. Try not to eat too much! If you eat too much then you’ll feel lazy and tired and wont want to be active on your mat, and with inactivity comes other issues! Don’t be a victim to this trap!!! Practice self control (as hard as that is for 99.9% of humans) and control that fork! I believe in you!
Some tips for holiday mat practice and lifestyle in general:
*Sun Salutations are your best friend! They work every muscle in the body, and if you do enough of them they will be a great sweaty workout after all that food! For extra good Karma try 108 of them in one sesh!
*Keep up the mindfulness practice. If you’re surrounded by family and kids all over the place, try and find a secluded space for even 15 minutes. Meditate or walk in the park. Anything to slow down the mind. You wont regret it!
*Remember to be grateful. For everything. EVERYTHING! The good, the bad, the ugly! Its all there for a reason, so accept it all with open arms. There is always another person in the world who would gladly trade places with you! Enjoy your life and give thanx!
There’s nothing more challenging than working with a partner. But it’s a beautiful way to discover not only your potential but your partners as well. Relationships are for nurturing and trust. Partner yoga is all that magnified! If you truly want to learn to trust someone, let them hold you upside down using only their legs and feet! It becomes an intimate practice where you really have to listen to each other in order to get the full benefits of the practice. Learning to give and surrender fully. It’s gorgeous!
