No ha sido nada fácil pasar por todo lo que me ha tocado vivir desde hace unos meses pero recuerdo las palabras de mi maestro Sharathji en una conferencia cuando dijo que tenemos una vida privilegiada si vemos las desgracias que ocurren en el mundo entero a muchos seres. Una de las cosas que me ha ayudado a recuperarme ha sido el amor incondicional de mi familia y de gente maravillosa, amigos y alumnos que también se han convertido en mi familia y que han estado allí para darme amor y todo su apoyo.
Cada día hago mi práctica aunque ahora no sea la misma, pronto volverá y volverá con más humildad y compasión, cada día beso a mi perro amado, cada día le doy gracias a Dios por el esposo que tengo y por todo lo que me ha hecho seguir aquí viva y con un aprendizaje maravilloso. Jamás te rindas, no es una opción.
Feliz hermoso domingooooo.
Always looking for that #balance ⚖️🤸🏻♀️⚖️🤸🏻♀️
I’ve got a lot of #pitta (in the #ayurveda philosophy) in me, so I often have to make sure I keep the #kapha balancing me out. This yoga practice helps to balance both of those parts. What is your #dosha ?
Yoga becomes so much more when there is community. The shala or studio becomes a second home, fellow practitioners become family, talking about all aspects of yoga is a valuable part of this life. Yoga is an on going journey, we are constantly learning through our practice, our teachers, life off the mat and the friendships you make along the way are precious and really help to put the peices together.
An inspiring conference as always today at #ashtangayogalondon with our wonderful teacher #hamishhendry ❤ Including a yummy Indian spread for us all to finish 😋 Feel as always, very blessed and grateful to be a part of it all.
Earlier this week, Matt and I went to see the @foofighters at @thegarden in New York City... This photo makes us look pretty far away, but we were 3rd row directly next to the stage! It was an INCREDIBLE evening that neither of us will ever forget. Thank you to my dear friend JC for hooking us up so beautifully... You’re the absolute best. Love ya buddy! ❤️

Focus Your Attention.
Practicing with total attention within the body is advanced yoga, no matter how easy the posture; practicing with your attention scattered is the practice of a beginner, no matter how difficult the posture. Hatha Yoga trains the mind as well as the body, so focus your attention without lapse.
Lock your attention within the body. You can hold your concentration on breathing, on tissues that are being stretched, on joints that are being stressed, on the speed of your movements, or on the relationships between breathing and stretching. You can also concentrate on you options as you move in & out of postures. - ‘Anatomy of Hathayoga’ authored by H.David Coulter
People and teachers touch you in different ways. David Swenson touched my heart. What an honour has been to study with this wonderful man, and do the Ashtanga Teaching Training this week. I'll be forever grateful for his teachings and the lovely people who I had the joy to share this experience with ❤ #davidswenson#ashtanga#ashtangayoga#yogamanchester#manchesteryoga#yoga
나는 한계가 없고, 자유로운 마음이다.
세상의 부조리도, 다른 육체들의 언행도,
심지어 내 육체의 나약함과 한계와 고통들도
나의 본질적인 자유를 침해할 수 없다.
내가 보고 듣고 인식하는 그 모든 것들에 대해
어떤 해석과 판단을 내릴지,
그 해석과 판단을 믿고 거기에 어떤 힘을 부여할지는
오로지 내가 결정할 수 있다.
내 마음에 영향을 줄 수 있는 유일한 한 사람은
바로 나 자신이다.
그것을 인식하고, 모든 상황에서 기억해내고자 할 때
나는 한계가 없고 자유로운 마음이라는 것을 나의 정체성으로 받아들일 수 있을 것이다.
육체를 나라고 여기면 난 사형을 기다리며 감금된 죄수가 될 것이고,
마음이 나였음을 알게되면 이 모든 것이 마음이 지어내는 꿈임을 알게 될 것이다.
If I believe I am a body,
I will be a prisoner waiting for the death penalty,
But find out that the Mind was me, I will find that it's all my dream.
As ashtanga yogi’s our practice is a daily opportunity…on and off the mat. We may often measure ourselves on how well be did our asanas, breath, control our monkey mind , did we do our job, took care of our family, etc….and sometimes we may feel like we could have done more.
Sometimes it feels like we are not enough just as we are at this very moment. There is always something we need to do or do better. But to remind ourselves, (me included), that we are not human doings but Human Beings…to be in this moment, here and now.
Not looking any further ahead or behind but just this moment, breath or asana. .
