Due to physical limitations this flow is a work in progress. If you know what a pistol squat is you'll see I have a long way to go to get all the way into it. But just because I can't to my liking doesn't mean I'm not gonna keep trying and do the best I can today. So if you have an excuse that is ego based than you really have no excuse at all! Come join me to flow Sunday mornings @vegashotstudio and Tuesday afternoons @trufusion_bluediamond !
Does your self make you suffer?
Self is a mental construct created by our perceptions based on the information that is collected and used to define us.
Who are you behind a mental construct? Undefinable.
How would your life change if you realized that you are an undefinable being and all definitions that cause suffering have no significance to you?

One of the most wonderful things about being a full time yoga teacher at YJ Davie is getting to know the students. I am there so much it lends to having some really great conversations before and after class. I asked Erick Leon @enl.squared to share his practice with us, and this is what he had to say:
“Always used to worry about my past and how that would affect my future. Yoga has opened my mind and taught me to really be in the present. To really feel what’s around me and to be part of my experience. It wasn’t until the last few years that I have really committed to myself to be the best I can be for me. The Yoga Joint has been a place where I can come and enjoy my practice. The encouragement I get from each and every one of the YJ family and the immediate “Hi Erick!” as I walk in the door makes me feel part of the YJ fabric and look forward to each and every visit. #namaste#yjlove ” 🧘🏻♂️
Be a part of this amazing group of fierce and fabulous humans! If you haven’t been to the studio DM me for a special new student offer!

Shri Sculpt POP UP this Wednesday December 12th at 8:15am & every Friday at 12pm!
We're excited to add "Shri Sculpt" to our regular schedule! Shri Sculpt is an innovative yoga class that adds weights to enhance calorie burning. We're equally excited that the fabulous Monica Halloran will be teaching it!
Monica fell in love with dance at an early age and it became her life. While a dance major at Columbia College, she was able to study under amazing teachers and dance all over the Chicago area. An injury in dance brought yoga into her life, and she instantly fell in love with the practice. The fluidity was comforting. At at time, yoga made her feel like she was dancing but added a greater mind/body connection.
In 2015 Monica was certified through Core Power for Sculpt. Sculpt is a safe, effective, group fitness class that guarantees a high calorie burn. Monica loves teaching because of the connections she make with my students, making them become part of her life and watching their progress.#healthylifestyle#yogawithweights#vinyasaflow#dancelife#workout#yoga#pranayama#inspirational#downtownhighlandpark#poweryoga#hotyoga#downtownhighlandpark
You would think that in this practice, the challenge is in attaining the twisty/flexible pose.
But the REAL challenge is calming the mind.
Controlling all the voices that frantically pop up of fear and doubt saying you can’t do it when you’re in the middle of trying. It’s so crazy how your body reacts to your thoughts. If you think you can’t do it, you won’t. If you think you’ll lose your balance, you’ll fall. But if you stop for a few seconds, sit, close your eyes, breath deep, and tell yourself “let’s do this”, the difference IS HUGE!! The amazing thing is that this practice doesn’t just stay in that one moment; it carries on with you into any situation you face in life. You can do anything you set your mind to! Believe in your abilities, believe in yourself!
Dedication is harder when no one is clapping for you, but you must clap for yourself in those times. You must be your biggest fan! #MotivationMonday
Did you know you can burn around 300 calories just by doing this? It’s true. @molija was in class tonight and has proof. Ok, so you have to do more than this in a heated room, but basically it’s this, and it means you can go for that extra gingerbread cookie and totally savor it. See you on the mat tomorrow @ $7 @ 7:30 pm @tapashotyoga #alllevels#yoga#hotyoga#gotmadheat#goodvibes#yesyoucan
You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and bumps into you, making you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup. Had there been tea in the cup, you would have spilled tea. The point is whatever is inside the cup, is what will spill out. Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it until you get rattled. So we have to ask ourselves, “What’s in my cup?” When life gets tough, what spills out? Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility? Or does anger, bitterness, harsh words and reactions come out? You choose! Let’s work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, kindness, words of reaffirmation, gentleness and love for others 🙏🏼💖
