“Yoga says instinct is a trace of an old experience that has been repeated many times and the impressions have sunk down to the bottom of the mental lake. Although they go down, they aren’t completely erased. Don’t think you ever forget anything. All experiences are stored in the chittam; and, when the proper atmosphere is created, they come to the surface again. When we do something several times it forms a habit. Continue with that habit for a long time, and it becomes your character. Continue with that character and eventually, perhaps in another life, it comes up as instinct. (92)” - Sri S. Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

“If you really want something, the whole Universe will work together to ensure that you realize your dream” - such a beautiful message from Paulo Coelho’s book the Alchemist. A book that I keep re-reading as a reminder to listen to my heart.
It’s already a year ago that I decided to stop working as a lawyer and live my own legend. Sometimes I feel insecure, but the moment I connect to my heart I know that this is life. ⚡️#mother#yogi#enterpreneur

Today's guidance (23 October 2018)
*Inverted ace of cups* is giving a big shout out to you with 2 important guidance. The first advice is *to love yourself* no matter what the situation is.. cos how can you love others when you don't love yourself ? Fall In love with your entire being, body , mind and soul cos you must remember that you are 'lovely and lovable'. Remember , You are a *divine being* and is worthy *only of love*.. the second advice is to 'not repress your emotions' no matter what.. say it out loudly what you feel is right and be *unapologetically you* when it comes to to expressing yourself.. you *don't need* to shy away or be apprehensive of the people's judgements.. if you still can't do it and feel some mental inhibitions, at least try spend some time today to journal your emotions or setting up a creative project where you can express yourself without any fear.. will you follow these 2 important advices today? Will you 'celebrate you'?
Tämä nainen muutti elämäni muutamia vuosia sitten 🙏🏻 Paljon on hikoiltu, asanoissa ähisty, kiireen keskellä läähätetty, mutta ennen kaikkea kokonaisvaltainen rauha ja laji löydetty. Lempeästi, mutta päättäväisesti edetty, solmuihin taivuttu ja yhdessä naurettu. Ainoa opettaja, joka sai minut laulamaan mantrat. Mein joogasali menee remonttiin, joten tänään oli viimeinen yhteinen kerta ennen pientä salitaukoa. Kuka ope antaa vielä läksiäislahjan ❤️ Kiitos @katjakokko #katjakokkojooga#astanga - oot 💎
Grabbing my foot in compass pose was inaccessible for me up until very recently. What changed? I started attending Astanga in September at @astangaottawa (thank you @kethysk for the push 🙌). At first the primary series killed me, but I've shocked myself, and have advanced significantly in a little over a month. I'm still a noob at it, but it no longer obliterates me, and I'm amazed by how much my body has opened up in this short period.
I never thought I'd be a Mysore person, but I've actually experienced some of the best adjustments ever during the practice. It's also darn addictive! So much so that this dummy was halfway to a Mysore practice this morning before thinking to check the schedule. There was no morning class, but luckily @jennstow had me covered at @pureyogaottawa. Thanks for the enlivening flow, Jenn!
If anyone in Ottawa is thinking of starting Astanga, I highly recommend @astangaottawa. There are so many stellar teachers to experience at that studio. 👌
“When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.” - Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron

How to breathe and preserve yoga as it moves into the future and spreads it’s wings, is where I am with it all. Are we doing it correctly? Are we blinded by a workout, social media, and a relaxing Savasana? Sustaining my authentic ethic through the shifts of modern yoga can be mentally, physically, and spiritually emotional at times. The way I see it, we must continue to teach from our genuine experience as a student. I appreciate so very much from my youth. Yoga was all inspiring to me then, I felt like a creative rebel who was hand selected from a secret society to weave a marvelous web of hope for our future. My mission is to sustain this youth like inspiration forever in my heart, like a positive groove that will never go away. Grow the wings and share all the wisdom, all the joy! •

Do you have good yoga balance? 😉 You may try this to have a practice 💪🏻🙏🏻
Teacher: @mariashishkinayoga ・・・
🌟When you are improving your side balance, better to say Ardha Chandrasana variation, which points do you need to correct at the first time? Right - side stretch line. Look on these pictures, there are two variants to improve your balance.
🔸Left side is more advantage, right - more suitable to correct and understand the movements.
Compare both depend on your personal possibilities and find out, that in all versions the left side is always straight, weight based fully on the left foot and body follows correct alignment.
Wanna improve your asana? Ask me right here!
🌟Когда вы практикуете боковой баланс, или Ардха Чандрасану, на что в первую очередь обращаете внимание? Верно - на вытяжение боков. На картинках ниже представлены два варианта качественного улучшения позы. Разберём?
🔹Левая колонка для более уверенных практиков, правая - более комфортная и удобная для отстройки. Сравните оба варианта и отметите, что всегда левая сторона корпуса растягивается от тазобедренного до плечевого сустава, вес плотно распределяется на всю опорную страху и корпус вписывается в правильный прямоугольник.
Хотите улучшить свою практику? Спрашивайте!

Tibetan Sound Healing Meditation with Lama Lobsang Palden ~ Oct 27 ~ 7:00pm -8:30pm
The healing sounds of Tibetan instruments such as drums, bells, gongs, singing bowls, cymbals, horns and conch shells permeate the space with resonant medicine, while TSA LUNG – breathing exercises open the channels and awaken the energy. Mantras and prayers expand consciousness, increase awareness and bring peace.
A silent meditation induces deep relaxation at the conclusion of this transcendent ritual.
