Shout out to all the asthangis out there @danysayoga @santinagiardinachard_ @eddiestern @southernashtangi @cheyenne.ln @taylorhuntyoga @kinoyoga, among many others I’m sure! You guys inspire me daily. Your strength and flexibility. Your commitment to your practice and the path of yoga. Your 4am starts. I tried Asthanga yoga a handful of times. I even remember drafting a letter to undertake a one month intensive with Pattabhi Jois in Mysore in my early 20s.
But there are many ways to burn and it seems that this path was not the right one for me. Still, it brings me great joy and inspiration to see you practice and know that Krishmamacharya was so instrumental in this tradition too.
Wow, Thank u Chuck for an amazing workshop!!! 💜
5 spændende dage, hvor vi virkelig har fået lov at mærke, føle og sanse.Den største læring har helt sikkert været: at ofte, har vi så travlt med at komme videre i vores liv, job, en yoga stilling (Asana) men vi glemmer helt at stoppe op og mærke efter om det er godt for vores krop/sind. For er der noget som det perfekte liv, det perfekte job, den perfekte stilling??? Du er den vigtigste i dit liv! Så stop op og mærk og tillad det der er! — 'Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is you-er than you. #ibsenbente#yogalove#yogimind#chuckmiller#breath#astanga#loveyourself
Yoga is creating ourselves according to the #cosmos .... It turns us which we think is human into real human with a developed #Conscious and fit body, mind and soul ... It cures our #soul to be #kind and #compassionate ....we learn to breath better..sit and stand better ... #Yoga is an alignment with the #cosmic and #universal system before we finally get absorbed into the space and time . ...Yoga is understanding our purpose here and our existence. It is our key to #Liberation !

6 days a week I practice at least 1.5 hours of astanga. On the surface, 9 hours of yoga a week doesn’t seem like a huge investment. 5 of those days I wake up at 3:10am to do it. I don’t eat past 6pm. On nights I don’t work, I’m in bed by 8. This doesn’t leave room for a “normal” social life & my closest friends know not to even bother asking me to go out at night. When most people find out about my schedule, they think I’m crazy (& I’m not saying they’re wrong). .
I do it because it’s the only thing that keeps me grounded. Over the last couple years I’ve changed so much, seen so much, lost so much, & gained so much, but my practice has been the one constant. Regardless of where I’m at or what kind of chaos is going on in my life, I know my mat will be there waiting for me every morning. When my thoughts start running wild & I wonder what the hell I’m doing with my life, I know I have 1.5 hours where I can go within myself & witness everything unfolding perfectly just as it’s supposed to. .
Sutra 1.4 | Vritti sarupyam itaratra
Translation: When one is not in #Selfrealization , the Seer takes on the identity of their mind’s thought patterns. When we are wrapped up in our thoughts, unable to stay present, we become our thoughts. It is the reason that sometimes it is said that we are asleep, and that we need to awaken. The process of awakening to the Self is the meaning of #Yoga ॐ
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mistaken Identity 👥
When we are unbalanced, the mind is attracted by the external world 💭 The mind has a unique quality — it assumes the form of whatever it perceives. If the mind has a pleasant attitude toward that object, it experiences pleasure. If the mind has an unpleasant attitude toward an object, it experiences pain.
When this neutrality is lost, the mind becomes the victim of its own imaginations + projections, #consciousness has no choice but to identify with them. This identification leads to suffering. This sutra says that it is important not to identify with our thoughts. The mysterious power of the mind misleads + binds us. We sleep to the #divineself within, and wake to a world of distracting identities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How much of your identity is wrapped up in the [work|familial|social] roles that you play? Do you find yourself identifying with your thoughts? How can you create daily dose of space between you + your mind?

Happy summer solstice!
Happy first day of summer and the most hours of daylight (if you are in the northern hemisphere 😝) & the most important #InternationalYogaDay !!! 🧘🏼♀️ I’m so blessed and glow differently because I’m actually really happy right now on my yoga mat. It’s been two years since I started doing yoga, I always feel graceful for all the people who have guided me and helped me during this journey. Yoga has enriched and empowered me, given me strength and confidence and challenged me in ways that go far beyond the physical. If yoga has taught me anything it’s that you never know how something can change you until you step out of your comfort zone. In addition, yoga helped me break through unhealthy patterns that consumed years of my life. I’ve learned how to be “mindfulness”, which has impacted all areas of my life and has made me a better person. Every time when I step on my mat, yoga brings my attention back to the “present”, and reminds me to embrace the “moment”. And, it’s OK not to be OK.
International Yoga Day 🙏🏻
Can you tell me why would you start the yoga journey?🙋🏻
