Without going out the door one may know the whole world; without looking out of the window, one may see the Way of Heaven. The further one travels, the less one may know. Thus it is that without moving you shall know; without looking you shall see; without doing you shall achieve.
THE Sage occupies himself with inaction, and conveys instruction without words. Is it not by neglecting self-interest that one will be able to achieve it?
Purge yourself of your profound intelligence, and you can still be free from blemish. Cherish the people and order the kingdom, and you can still do without meddlesome action.
Who is there that can make muddy water clear? But if allowed to remain still, it will gradually become clear of itself. Who is there that can secure a state of absolute repose? But let time go on, and the state of repose will gradually arise.
Be sparing of speech, and things will come right of themselves.
A violent wind does not outlast the morning; a squall of rain does not outlast the day. Such is the course of Nature. And if Nature herself cannot sustain her efforts long, how much less can man!
Attain complete vacuity, and sedulously preserve a state of repose.
Tao is eternally inactive, and yet it leaves nothing undone. If kings and princes could but hold fast to this principle, all things would work.
Holding space for my inner sage today.
Cheers @aloyoga .
Dropping by @lmotionstudios to meet up with @sistratton and discuss movement.
He’s hosting me for an awesome Movement Workshop on the 4th of November, 11:30am. Open to all levels, no experience required.
We will be looking at bridge transitions, Handstands, elbow levers and soft Acrobatics.
Few spots left so if you want to join, move fast.
Link in bio for tickets.
So, being 30 and trying maintain handstands, Floor Movement and acro has been super hard.
Trying to rely less on socks when playing on the floor which has always been my comfort (who even likes burns on the feet?!).
It’s been a while since I’ve performed so just need get some foot callouses back!

Love moving your body?
Consider treating yourself to this!
Where the jungle meet the beach in Costa Rica.
Retreat is led by Shira Yaziv (co-founder and owner of Athletic Playground), there will also be three inspiring guest teachers: @andrey.pfening , @upsidedownchachi and @sebastiangrubb !
They are each wonderful in their own way.
Probably the most irresponsible move I tried the other day.
It’s not inherently dangerous but it’s extremely risky on the ACL. Twisting in the last stage of this rotation means that you’re pretty much still twisting as you’re landing - as I’ve not got much ACL left in my right knee it was stupid of me to try...
That being said how SICK is this move 👌🏼
I’ve not seen anyone else do this before!
That’s as good as that was going to get that day.
The cost of perfection can sometimes be too high.
Tickets to my Movement workshop in London at @lmotionstudios still available at early bird price.
Open to all levels, no experience required. Come learn, move and play.

[Locomotion Work ]
Probably the one thing that inspired me the most and made me fell in love with the Ido Portal Method. I just love the locomotion work, it is very technical, it offers a great tool for strength development, fantastic active mobility, joint protection, metabolic conditioning, freedom of movement, expression/improvisation...and last but no least you can do it everywhere and you don't need any gym equipements. #locomotionwork#floreio#movementculture#idoportal#idoportalmethod#whatmakesyoumove#treino#qdr#fitfam
Proyecto QDR circules; done!
After a two hours movement preparation with @jonathanfletcher88 “suddenly” I got it.
I mean “suddenly” after a couple of years of hard work and sweat.
This is an isolated movement that in a small frame means a lot but not in the big frame, in order to achieve it you will need to pass through a lot more isolated variations.
I know is just a tine little grain of the sand in the great ocean but I still feel very happy and proud to have this little tool in my toolbox.
Now I will work to integrate this move with others and being able to use it in the improvisation world.🌎 I really love this movement journey! ❤️ #movement#movementculture#qdr#idoportalmethod#idoportalmexico#mexico#puertoescondido#zicatela
I usually tell people to do things that scare them more often.
Here’s to practicing what you preach.
Was out at the Heath with @benmedder @monk3y_adam @ovrhuman @p.ranson @reece_allen_ and @rafekelley
These were some good challenges in terms of distance, impact and height.

Repost from @shaneup - Ari working on some QDR’s in last weeks gymnastics class.
I hate to call it a gymnastics class at all because it immediately puts a box around what it is people think we do. I doubt you’ve ever seen a QDR at a gymnastics meet, but you have seen a lever...and we practice those too.
Gymnastics to me, and by definition, is the practice of movements that build and require agility, coordination and control. Because they are also typically body-weight I feel they have the greatest carryover to real life (Since all of physical life is experienced first at your body) AND they help form the foundation of any and all other types of physical movement.
Will Ari ever find herself in a real life situation where she needs to be able to do this? Probably not, unless she starts pursuing capoeira, BUT the concepts she learned through this process absolutely carryover, not to mention the strength and balance acquired.
I challenge @farid_herrera for this one ☝️ .
A true Master is not the one with the most students, but one who creates the most Masters, get the movement manual with all the knowledge you need - link in bio.
