I finally made it back onto my mat after 6 days. This last week has left me breathless...in so many ways. I didn’t dedicate any daily time to yoga between work and back-to-school preparations and activities, and I felt it...in so many ways. So much for #yogaeverydamday here’s to #goeasyonyourself and #imdoingmybest , knowing one day I’ll achieve that daily practice I’m striving for. #vinyasa#bikram#yoga#breathe
Day 58 of gratitude. I am so grateful for rest.
• Are you able to chill out?
• Do you find yourself always doing something?
• I believe it’s so important to take time to do nothing. Be quiet, perhaps sit outside and be with nature. Rest in the morning on a Sunday, giving yourself permission to chill out. Not running out the door starting your to do list right away.
Your body and mind will thank you. .
• It's very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems. Thich Nhat Hanh
• rest up and let’s flow tomorrow at 7:15 am @yogaworks Montana 🙏
SUNDAY: The perfect day to reflect, reset and recharge for another great week 🤗
My weekly yoga schedule:
Monday: 10am & 7.30pm
11am @The Strand Bar
7.45pm @Gorey RFC
Just realised oh yes it is Sunday so have to strike a lose for awesome @by_titilia and #sisterhoodsundayshapessweden ❤️💖❤️💖❤️💖❤️ Happy Sunday everyone! 😘💕🌈🦄🌺 Wearing top and leggings from Swedish @vayumudra 👌🏻😊
Lately I have been receiving each day as a mini Gaia immersion, a whole and complete bundle with a unique bhav (energetic mood) of its own. I fully give myself over to just this one day, trusting the other days to effortlessly blossom from this one ... Just like flowing through the asanas, the next one just naturally arises. And all unfolds with ease and grace 🌟 love love love to you all on this precious day here on Mama Earth!!! 💙💜💙
My name is Huy. I have been flowing aka “dancing in the dark” for quite some time but my yoga journey has just began. Before, I was on my mat physically feeling the things I wanted to feel but I wasn’t mentally seeing the things I needed to see. Being on the @corepoweryoga team definitely help opened my eyes. Amazing community with the amazing cherry on top fellow instructors/management!
When I started yoga, The word “Namaste” was definitely a statement. I began hearing it more often, seeing the word and this darn 🙏 emoji everywhere. Being the hip hop/ R&B head that I am, the first thing that came to my head was @tyga ’s famous hit line “Make it Nasty”🤓🤷♂️ I went home and made a vinyl “MAKE IT NAmaSTe” and slapped it on my @hydroflask thinking it looked cool along with my other hundred stickers.
Some time has passed and now I’m in the front guiding yogis to make cool shapes with their bodies. From time to time I would see individuals start rolling up their mats right before we hit savasana and I’m just like man you’re missing out. You gotta make it until Namaste! And boom it all made sense I just forgot the word “until.”
So here I am trying to remind yogis to
*not talking about the people that has important things to leave early for but the people just trying to beat a lil traffic/ something not important after.
Follow me for some yoga goodies happening out there in the world and occasionally maybe I’ll post a pic of me trying to get a cool inversion📸 in or die trying.
Check out my highlights for my “why, vision, and inspiration”
Connect and help bring color 🎨 to the community. Add #makeitnamaste to your notes. Use it along with your other 50 hashtags when you post something cool😜🧘♂️🤸♂️🧘♀️🤸♀️ Huy C.
Neben vielen tollen Erfahrungen auf Bali, hatte ich während meines Unterrichts das große Glück genauso außergewöhnliche Menschen kennen zu lernen. Eine davon ist Antje @leben_im_paradies. Antje lebt seit einiger Zeit in ihrem ganz persönlichen Paradies auf Bali. Authentisch und schön teilt Sie ihre Erlebnisse und Eindrücke auf ihrem Blog. Genau für diesen, hat sie auch mich um ein kurzes Interview gebeten.
Welchen Eindruck sie als Vollblut Nada-Yogini von meinem Yogaunterricht hat, könnt ihr hier lesen↙️

When you miss a shot, never think of what you did wrong. Take the next shot thinking of what you must do right. Take your negativity and use it as a positive growth. Learn from it and explore new possibilities.
My body is sore but my heart is full. Most of life challenges are followed by blessings. Wait for them. Expect them. We are walking rainbows. Still alive and shining after all we’ve been through so far. We still have more love to give and lots to be grateful for. We are the promise after the rain. Thank you @udayayoga for inviting me back for another year of teaching yoga, dancing, meditation and music to keep me high for a long time. I’m grateful for every beautiful soul that made this festival possible and everyone that came to enjoy life with us! See you next year!! #GETLOVEDUP#GODISLOVE ❤️🙏🏾❤️ *

Happy Sunday, yogis!
What better way to ward off the #SundayScaries than weaving yoga escapes into your schedule this week!?
I've been thinking a lot lately about the simple, basic - if you will, yoga practice. Clients, at times, request physical classes intentionally designed to workout the body in ways that might better align to weightlifting sessions or a cardio class. While there is a time and a place for classes like this (and don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good, physically challenging practice to help me refocus) how might a slower-paced, breath-filled practice better benefit hectic weeks even though we THINK that a physically challenging practice is what we crave. .
Our bodies are amazing and we must treat it well and take care of the one we're given. This week I offer a challenge of slowing down your practice; maybe that means an increased awareness of your breath during class or maybe that means literally staying in child's pose, savasana, or skipping a posture altogether.
I'm teaching this week my normal schedule @daileymethoddc:

FINAL day of our #backtoschoolbasics yoga challenge! 👏Thank you to everyone who's been participating- please share your photos and/or comments on what you've learned or enjoyed! 🌞
Today's pose is Downward Facing Dog, one of my FAVORITES! This pose has the energizing benefits of an inversion, while simultaneously strengthening your shoulders, arms, wrists, and upper back AND lengthening your spine/lower back, hamstrings, calves and ankles. 🐕
Most of the time, Downdogs are too shallow- try to create distance between your hands and feet to open yourself up to more oxygen and deeper lengthening. ➡️Proper downdog alignment is found from your initial plank asana. In other words, if you start in plank and shift your tailbone backwards and toward the sky, then you will have proper distance between your hands and feet.⬅️ Do you notice the difference?! Btw it is perfectly ok to keep a slight bend in your knees or even your heels off of the ground. Listen to your body and do what's best for YOU, always. 🙏
SWIPE to see the entire sequence we've built up to! My recommendation is to SLOW DOWN and allow your BREATH TO INITIATE MOVEMENT. Focus on your breath as you and your kiddos do this sequence 5-10x. Enjoy! 😘❤
What really IS this thing we do in call yoga? This immersion will simplify and make clear the fundamental teachings of yoga by exploring the four common yoga paths: Karma Yoga, Jnana Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. We will be clarifying what separates and what unites them how it all relates to asana practice as well as which elements of these paths are most practical for deepening one's own yoga practice in today's world! This is great for teachers who may have not received this information in their 200 hour teacher training and also for students who want to deepen their understanding. Saturday October 6th noon-4pm $55
Have you ever taken a yoga class that totally humbled you? 🌟
I took a class today that made me want to escape.
It was SO hot and SO hard that I contemplated getting up and leaving within the first 20 minutes. I thought, “there is no way I can make it through this class.”
All my mind focused on was how good the cool air outside the studio would feel. I wanted it. I CRAVED it. The humidity was so high that I watched the mirrors fog over. Two feet of thick, white air coming from the ceiling started to move down. I wanted to run.
That’s when the reality check came in.
We cannot run from experiences that make us uncomfortable. We don’t grow that way.
I knew if I made it through this class, next time wouldn’t be so uncomfortable. And the time after that, even less so. But, I HAD to start here. I wouldn’t be any better off next time if I left. I had to breathe, and modify, and listen to my body.
Man, I’m glad I stayed. 💫💞
"Most of us spend a whole lot of time on our devices. Unless we’ve made a commitment to maintaining healthy posture—including not tilting our heads forward—we can end up with the 21st-century malady, “text neck.” We don’t have to put up with the resulting neck and shoulder pain, however. Yoga can help. Try this sequence of yoga-based stretches to help alleviate pain due to forward head posture and text neck." - Christine Carr, E-RYT 500

Are you expecting? We are so happy to announce we will be offering prenatal yoga at @the.yoga.bar. This welcoming, relaxing class will help to support you, keeping your body and mind healthy during your pregnancy. Classes will run every Monday from 6.45 - 8pm. .
Your wonderful instructor will be Holly Hood of @hollyhoodyoga.
Holly started practising yoga at 16. Something always drew her back to the practice over the years, whether helping her with aches and pains or finding stillness during busy periods.
Recovery from an operation in 2013 encouraged her to explore meditation, and she fell in love with yoga as a daily practice. She trained as a pregnancy and post-natal teacher in 2015. This supported her own pregnancy and son’s birth. She is passionate about supporting women to recognise their power and intuition during this time. Her classes are energising and nourishing for the body and mind. Holly also teaches vinyasa flow and Kirtan. .
✨You can book now via our Mind Body app or through the website www.theyogabar.co.uk. ✨
We look forward to seeing you there. Please share if you have any friends who you think would benefit from this class. #theyogabartwickenham
*** Встречать закат.
И жизнь, играя, проживать
Идти за счастьем, знать ответ
И понимать - не понимать
Тебе твоё. Другим иное.
И все ценнО. Твоё. Чужое.
Душа и тело. Звук и песня.
Покой. Волнение. Тишина.
Уединение. Или вместе.
Как ночь и день.
Как свет и тьма.
И проживая все мгновенья
Вдыхая аромат любви
Стремишься ты по вдохновению.. Куда.. Лишь только знаешь ты.

🧘♀️ ABOUT THE YOGA
Tess Koenig holds her 200-hour Vinyasa certification from Yoga Vida and completed a five-month intensive mentorship program under the guidance of her teacher, Aditi Shah. After moving from Atlanta seven years ago, this Georgia peach found herself in an all-consuming New York City desk job and turned to yoga to reconnect with herself. Tess now teaches yoga privately and in studios throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. She hopes to guide students in rediscovering their inner compass and sense of purpose. Above all, she wants yogis to walk away from the mat simply feeling better in mind, body, and soul. Tess' musically-charged flow class style is moderately pacedathletic and totally human. All levels are beyond welcome in her classes. Follow her @tessiemade -
