You can find the perfect place or space to continue your practice(can be anything that makes you feel alive!) as long as keep your great intention.

Playful, lightheartedness and laughter kill the ego. By Removing the idealism of being a perfectionist all the time, a shift can occur in your practice and in your everyday life. Yoga is not a competition of who has the better handstand or who is most flexible. Life is not a competition of who has the nicer house or the nicer car. Better handstands and nice houses don’t buy happiness. When you start to take life as fun and not worry about what others have or can do, the ego will die as it cannot survive off of fun. ————————————————————

Shift your perspective away from suffering & limitations to the infinite bliss of the present moment.
Last week I had my annual scan & doctor follow-up. Each trip back to Froedtert takes me back to a very unusual time...a time when the goal was just to make it through the day. A time when I was exhausted & weak; when I watched the people around me feel helpless bc they couldn’t help me. .
Yet, it was a time of simplicity & gratitude. Even though I couldn’t venture far from a restroom, carry a gallon of milk or stand up without feeling like I was standing on thousand needles, I was happy. My heart was full, I had hope.
As crazy as it may seem, this time was one of the happiest times in my life. Why...? There are many reasons, but the simple answer is because I realized that each moment I had was a gift. And if that moment was going to be my last I was going to enjoy it.
Day 4 of #yogathruelements
Flow like water
Planks to build strength
Hip openers to release emotional blocks
Water is change.
I am a child of the lake. Born into Pisces. My home is the water. I am healed by the sounds of waves crashing, the sight of the suns reflection on the surface & full body submersion. This element is not only calming, but can be chaotic. Just as my yoga practice is. Just as my life is. .
Truthfully I have felt chaotic this past year. I have had a number of losses, failures & hard lessons in 2018. I have felt awash with emotion. My practice. My flowy practice has kept me calm. I dedicate my practice to the element of water. In recognition of its power. More often than not, water changes me. I am change.
I am a proponent of water as a healing tool, of aquatics or water therapy. I am thrilled to announce one of my clinical rotations will be in this area. I am ecstatic for my future as a physical therapist & to witness the healing power of water. .
Be in constant change.
Be constantly healed.

🐝🕸🧗🏼♂️Day 1️⃣9️⃣ of #GravityIssues with @cyogalife ↪️ #SidePlank variation 🧗🏼♂️🕸🐝 There is a lot going on in today's main pose! The obvious modification would be to ignore what's going on with the top leg and come into a more traditional #sideplank ... and that would be totally acceptable. One of the cues you always here in side plank (and one that's absolutely necessary for #Vasisthasana ) is to lift the hips. The modification that I'm proposing today is one of my favorite side plank variations that will help us to focus on engaging the core and lifting out with the hips. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Start in a strong #plankpose with the arms pressing firmly into the mat, core engaged, and thighs squeezed and lifting. Begin to move the weight into the right hand as you roll the body to the right, balancing on the outer edge of the right foot. Stack your left foot onto of the right foot and extend the left arm to sky coming into traditional side plank. From here, really begin to reach with the left leg so that the sole of the foot comes to the floor. Press firmly into the left foot while keeping the left leg straight and fully engaged. Begin to bend the right and think of bringing the knee to the chest while squeezing the core super tight. With the right leg off the ground, you'll have to work extra hard to keep the hips lifted. Extend the left arm up and over to really emphasize the left side body stretch that's resulting from all the lifting. Through all of this, keep the right arm super strong and pushing the ground away. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Day 16 #alltheyoga18
I did an awesome flow on @oneoeight.tv called 'Ready, Set, Go'
Some core activation in the beginning, and an overall emphasis of having your ribs hugged in during poses and vinyasa. I enjoyed this class alot. It's a level 2 class but it still offered chances for inversions like #handstand , #forearmstand , and #funkyflyingcrow .
I've been using oneoeight online now for about 2 weeks. I've only used YouTube once or twice. I wanted to really get a feel for if I liked it or before my 10 day free trial ended and I'm definitely going to keep it. I like the mixture of teachers...each of them has a unique style of teaching and a wide spectrum of all that goodness. The mixture of classes is great too! I just hope to see new classes added regularly...not sure if that's a thing on their site. I havent looked into that, but I would hope that at least one class was added a week, because I dont know about you but I get bored quick 😊
Happy Monday ya freaks!
You who have been seeking, whatever path you are on, a moment will come when divine pulsation grabs you and carries you into its dance. In the midst of ecstatic motion, your body dissolves into light, leaving only the softly glowing benediction of the bones. You become the face of fury, yet serene within. Eyes fly open in amazement, seeing the unseen vastness. Or you become a tongue tasting upward into the nectar of eternity. The soul reveals itself to itself through movement. Energy-infused undulations and gestures of hand, foot, spine, face, and form. The invisible loves the visible. ((From The Radiance Sutras))
