Pretty new toys this week!! Two new moblique nib holders by @luis.creations from @paperandinkarts in mint leaf and copper sunshine #calligraphy #pointedpencalligraphy #copperplatecalligraphy #practicemakesprogress #moderncalligraphy #flourish
Have you touched your toes today/this week/this month/within the last year? 
It seems like a simple thing to do but most of us can not do it. I encourage you to wake up every day this week and just reach for your toes. You will be surprised how much better you will feel. 😀#happymonday #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #touchthemtoes #yogi #yogini #yogiatheart  #practicepracticepractice #practicemakesprogress #forwardfold #uttanasana

Walked the dog out in the pea soupy morning. Came home to work on core and shoulders. I might be regretting it tomorrow. #yoga #familyroomyoga #handstandpractice #handstandprep #yogawithdog #lifewithdog #dogisalouddrinker #practicemakesprogress
It’s so mesmerising! And I am so happy to know the #moblique is working so well with the broad nib. .

For each drawing you make, it’s like earning experience points. You will gain abilities as you level up, and new skills will unlock. It may feels like your not improving, but the truth is you are.
•
There are no shortcuts to become good at drawing. The only way is patience, practice, and failing. We all start somewhere in our life, whenever it’s good or bad. Start now, don’t wait.
•
We all want to succeed, but that requires hard work, and passion. Hope this comparison will encourage you to keep making art, and have fun at the same time. Good luck on your art journey.

Monday Meditation 
So Amit Ray said, “if you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” I notice that I experience much of my anxious feelings when I’m either worrying about the future or wishing that the moment I’m currently experiencing was somehow different...feeling discontent with my current situation, whatever that may be. 
How is worrying about the future or being displeased with a current situation going to improve my overall well-being? 
Having fearful and anxious thoughts will produce unpleasant side effects in each of us, both mentally and physically. 
It was when I found it intolerable to continue living in this constant state of unrest, that I decided that a change was due!

Slowly, one step at a time, I began incorporating various self-care tools such as - diet (more fruits & vegetables, less meat, no alcohol), sleep (early to bed/early to rise 7 hrs), exercise (morning/evening walks, 1 mile runs, push-ups...), and yes, meditation (5-15 mins once or twice a day). These are the things that are helping me to navigate this beautiful thing called life. You make sure to find your own mix. 
Just remember to take your time and have fun with it, and with regular practice, you’ll begin seeing positive benefits...and remember, practice makes progress.

🇬🇧 A little homework from the wonderful watercolor workshop I attended last Saturday in Madrid. Those roses need a bit of work but I’m loving the process! 🇪🇸Ayer al llegar a Burgos de un finde fantástico y súper veraniego en Madrid, me puse manos a la obra con la tarea que nos puso Inés. Poco a poco irán saliendo mejor, pero me encanta todo esto. Millones de GRACIAS a @the_flower_journal  por ser un encanto y una inspiración en mi viaje creativo. Me encantó conocerte!

Our little home ♥️ 🏡 .
I have been wanting to practice watercolor home paintings for a while now and finally had some free time to sit down and give it a shot! Some of my lines and perspectives are a little wonky and now that I see it there are a few details I would like to add but overall I’m so happy how it turned out! Next time I would use a finer fine-line for outlines, bleed proof white for the white details and some more dimensional color to the sky & grass!
.
I’m plan to list these on my @etsycanada soon but I would like to get a little bit of practice in first so I have decided for the first 5 people who would like to order I am going to offer a special price! DM or email me for details ♥️
.
Swipe for the picture of the house I used, which is actually before we lived there because it was the listing photo... my gardens are much more full now! 😍

"I probably shouldn't sing that song because it's too high (or low, or any other thing you can insert here)". I have something I want to share with you:
_
Quit overthinking and just do it. You may not sound as good as you'd like at first. But, that's ok. Just keep practicing and keep building your skills. Always remember, YOU are your worst critic. So, stop being so hard on yourself and creating difficulties. You can do this!

Are you springing into this week, or dragging yourself out of 🛏?
Maybe a little of both?
.
Wherever you are starting from, remember that you choose how to begin. The beginning is important. But more important than how you start, is how you FINISH.
.
Take jumping for instance. Most people would say it’s all about how high you can jump. LAUNCH 🚀 explosively, ultimately the higher = the better. But what if you don’t stick the landing? 😳 Depending on just how high you were aiming, that could be a serious backwards fall. 🤕
.
Always finish strong 💪🏻, because that is the memory that will last the longest.
And for real, practice landing first! 😉

Move better, live better.

🤔What can you see in the pose? Does it look like a snake yet?🐍🎪
.
It’s really confused how to get into this shape when going upside down. Entering is not the hardest part, balancing is the most difficult to me, need to working harder on flexibility, core strength and balance for it 🐍.

Can you do Yoga if you’re not flexible?

One of the most common fears I see people have when I talk about yoga is that they don’t think they are flexible to be able to do it.

When you look up Yoga online, you are confronted by images of young, slender, incredibly flexible people, mostly women, with their bodies in a variety of complex and intimidating contortions.

It is no wonder people look at Yoga and then think ‘I can’t possibly do that’. I have been practising Yoga for 10 years. I did gymnastics as a child, and might well have a touch of Hypermobility Syndrome (excessive flexibility in my joints)  If you, as a total beginner with no dance or gymnastic history, came to my class able to perform the postures I teach the way I do, I’d be amazed.

I recently asked in a poll in my Facebook group about reasons people have for not attending Yoga classes, and the idea that they aren’t flexible enough is the top reason given.

So I wrote a blog post about it.

◅◅ #GravityIssues challenge ▻▻
🧗🏻‍♀️🕸🐝 Day 17: #FrogPose at the wall 🐝🕸🧗🏻‍♀️
HOW ABOUT YOU?
What’s your favorite workout?? I made a New Years resolution in 2017 to work out 2x per week. Since then, I’ve worked out at least 3x a week and in most cases 4x (unless I was sick) and have never felt stronger, happier, or more confident. Since coming back from Namibia, I’ve been on a #ProjectComeback to get bikini ready for my next holiday in August 👙☀️🏝.
My favorite workouts at the moment are:
1/ #SweatItReload 💪🏻. I’m getting my butt kicked 4x a week by @sarahs_day 😂.
2/ Fat burning workout finishers like a 15min brisk incline walk or sprints.
3/ Ab strengtheners with a balance ball. I don’t do these enough but they’re so fun!
HOW ABOUT YOU? What’s your favorite workout???

Second time driving the E30. I'm learning, but I still suck. MSNE designed a fun track and it was a great day out on the lot with friends. Slowly chiseled my time down as the day went on.

Actually starting to find space here 🙊.

Just be you.
Just be you.
I'm not saying this is perfect, far from it. Just get sick of seeing perfection on IG. So here's me hacking away at some ideas on a Monday night. 30% awesome, 60% bollocks, 10% drumface 😂 
I like where it was heading... #drums #hack #ludwigdrums #vintagedrums #practicemakesprogress #drummerslife #drummer #monday

I did a solid 20 minutes of drills before lettering this out and it felt amazing!

I'm back in namma Bengaluru and eager to get into the usual pattern of teaching and practicing again.

Missing the family but happy to be back. 
P.S.  Notice how symmetrical my legs are in this picture.  All the way to my toes.  I can only hope that this is how I usually do the #sirsasana.  And the great thing is that my eyes are closed and I'm still able to balance! 😀😀😀🤸🤸🤸🤸 📸 @ds84in 
P.P.S.  What plans for yoga day?  I'm conducting a session at @carrotsrestaurant which is going to be fun and invigorating and you really don't want to miss it.  Do attend, tickets available on Events High.

Two more 10 minute poses. By this point, I was past feeling confident. I was seeing the poses and the action lines very clearly and I knew exactly where I was wanted to lay down shadows and emphasis. It felt amazing. Every time I go to a figure drawing class, I'm trying to get to that feeling quicker and make it last forever. It's tough. #figuredrawing
