A yogi’s library :) :p

But seriously, I took this while cleaning out my old room at my parents. The studies of a Religious Studies major (yup) can take you many places.

I encourage you to become acquainted with some of these. All these here were some of my favorites. I also highly recommend Desikachar’s book the Heart on Yoga. Om on and have fun! #om #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #books #library #reading

Tips for holding a handstand longer?

Asked by Anonymous

Hey! Absolutely - don’t rush it! :p do you already have your handstand?

A good practice is to have someone put their forearm between your thighs once you’re up in handstand. They may be lightly assisting you, but the real support comes from the squeezing of your thighs together. Maintain an activated core and really squeeze, point, contract those leg muscles to help pull you up. This is to give you the idea of how much you need to activate and bring awareness to your pelvis and legs. Make sure you’re entering into it with wide fanned out shoulder blades as if entering into pincha.

Pincha is your friend. I warm up with forearm balances before doing handstands (okay sometimes I cheat haha…). I got the idea of using the deepest part of my lower core to bring my pelvis up and aligned with pincha practice.

Let me know if any of this helps or doesn’t make sense! :)

Don’t wait for the world to tell you if you’re beautiful, ugly, wrong or right. Make a decision of who you want to be and become it. Announce to the world your presence, unapologetically so, and live it fully.

"They say the heart that breaks open can contain the whole universe."

I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. Ready to make a move and put months of wondering to rest. My life is ticking by while I sit and ponder what ifs? Is it really time to start all over again?

Except it won’t be all over again; not this time. This time i know who I am, what I want, what moves jives and thrives within me. I may not know precisely where I’m going, but I know which way the wind is taking me.

This is your time.
Stepping on my mat brings me home again.
All else melts away; falls.
Silence brings clarity,
as focus leaves only what’s important.
I am in this moment for me.
It’s not about fitting yourself into the pose;
but expanding.

My body is made for work,
and it works for love.

Lift UP and OUT of those shoulders and low back. Core glutes and hammies are your friends here. We use our pelvis to stabilize when we stand - why wouldn’t we need it when we stand on the sky as well??

I love using teeter-totter legs as a warm up for inversions, reminding myself not to throw my legs up, use momentum, and then try to use core once I’m up to stop the fall. No! Core is engaged allllllll the time.

Keeping my toes pointed helps to remind me they should stay active - who wants to drag that dead weight around??

Remember slow and steady wins the race here! Om on and have fun!!

To be alive in the beautiful self-organizing universe -
To participate in the dance of life
with senses to perceive it,
lungs that breathe it,
organs the draw nourishment from it,
- is a wonder beyond words.

Missing this bugger from another mother today. Bhakti is my dog, traveled from Cali but now a Midwestern boy. He can run and play in the few acres of my parents yard. Though I miss him out here in CO, I know he is best taken care of here.

Gotta get me a dog here. Ah!!!

Extend with your chest.
Open your heart.
Press away with your heels.
Breathe.
Feel.
Breathe.

Why are you looking
down all the wrong roads?
When mine is the heart
and the salt of the soul.

Your heart is not an object that can break.
But if it were,
They say the heart that breaks open can hold the whole universe.
Your heart is that large.
Trust it.
Keep breathing.
