Your deepest presence
is in every small contracting and expanding,
the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings

Its been such a long while since I took some time off work, and this week I really feel the weight of the coming new moon. I need to recharge my batteries and reconnect with my true nature…hiking, rock climbing, yoga, and listening to the secrets in the wind. I want to be immersed in natures wonderful energy.

Any tips for camping in Colorado? Where are your off-the-beaten path camping locales? Gimme some suggestions!

Dwell on the beauty of life.
Watch the stars, and see
yourself running with them.

I’ve grown up with Rottweilers, dobermans, all kinds of mutts, and, go figure, the cat is the who actually comes when he’s called. What can I say!…he loves his mama <3

May your day take you to unexpected places, and may you greet them with eagerness and an open heart. #namaste #grey #babygrey

My sacrum visibly sticks out. Before you start thinking of a TAIL (no!), it’s more like a bump at the base of my spine. No ones knows if my crazy body is a result of birth, or car accidents! But the exaggerated curvature in my lumbar means I have to pay special attention to reaching my tailbone to my feet and engaging that core. I struggled for years to Un-learn everything from backbends to just standing and sitting. because I was always swayed and flexible in my lumbar, I had to revisit the most basic poses to find out how I could open my heart, my chest, even my hips, and slowly regain control of my torso. Getting closer to holding handstand every day is like Learning how to line my body up and let it stand on its own two …er, hands :)

Weee!! This may be the highest I’ve ever gotten my leg in standing splits!! Goes to show you what can happen when you relax and trust yourself!

This whole practice I devoted to slowing myself waaaayyy down, really “mmmm” - in the moment, you know? I stuck with mostly basic postures, so near the end I had more energy to practice handstands, forearm balance, falling….๐Ÿ˜ป #yoga #girl #practice #standingsplits #splits #legs #instagood #fitgram #yogini #igyoga

Instayoga challenges; gotta love ‘em, but I kinda gotta dislike em too. I love how yoga is more accessible these days, I love all the self study and informative videos in #handstand.

But yoga isn’t about mastering a series of poses. Is it possible to nail #Scorpion #pose without #pranayama #breath #work #chanting #flow ? Yes. But it is like seeing the #ocean and thinking the beautiful surface, the tide, is all there is, when the depths and life as you explore further will astound you.

I am for the challenges that incorporate #prana and singing or chanting as we flow, to activate our chakras and diaphragm, that remind us that yoga is not looking fancy, is not the mastery of a series of POSES. “Pose” is so misleading, there is an ocean of dynamism, of life, within us as we breathe.

Breathe.

I’m not afraid of dying. Im afraid of never truly living.

Supported tripod headstand can be a toughie for me. Yoga has helped me realize imbalances between my left and right side - when I first started my headstand looked more like the Tower of Pisa! and yet to me that felt straight!

Even today, I use headstand to awaken my senses and open up places I haven’t accessed in years. I’m learning through this #asana how to drop my tailbone towards my feet and engage that inner core, without swaying my body. #PeelingtheOnion #yoga #headstand #tripodheadstand
