I've been posting my #supyoga Sunday photos for the last couple of weeks to show off the beautiful people who join me for practice on the paddleboards. I am forever grateful for the energy they share and the trust that they put in me to guide them out here on the water.
I wouldn't be able to do what I'm doing without you all. Keep shining bright and practicing on! Jai Jai Sri Radhe!

Alive.! I woke up just to watch the sunrise. That hasn’t happened since I was last in Kauai. 💠
It’s magnificent to pause and pay homage to the sun and honor all it does to enlighten my life. It’s warm rays bring growth and life and the sun habitually rises daily, and expects nothing in return. That is unconditional love. 💠
We only get one go at life, and our time is limited. It is said when we meditate daily we prepare for our ultimate death. Not to be a downer, but what could be more freeing that to have acceptance that we will one day be gone and to live each day to the fullest. To live our lives with unconditional love.
What would you do if you knew your time was limited? Go on a road trip, volunteer, buy a friend lunch, be more outspoken, watch the sunrise, spend more time with friends and family?
✨Acceptance is the only place where change can begin✨ It is vital to have goals and aspirations to further our human development, but we must practice a relationship and attitude of non-attachment towards our goals. ✨A commitment to a goal should not be contingent on the outcome.✨This is the essence of acceptance.✨

Water has a magical, healing property. Bringing meditation and chanting on the board increases and amplifies our ability to take it all in. Jai Jai Sri Radhe!

🌎“If you develop a strong sense of concern for the well-being of all sentient beings or in particular all human beings, this will make you happy in the morning, even before coffee. This is the value of compassion, of having compassionate feelings for others. Even 10 minutes you see, or 30 minutes of meditating on compassion, on kindness for others, and you will see it’s effects all day. That’s the way to maintain a calm and joyous mind.” -Dalai Lama
We may be under the weather but life is great. It’s been wonderful to slow down and experience the beauty of time, meditation, and spiritual talks.
I have made it a point through out my journey to meditate over the past few years. I used to sit still and meditate daily and felt numerous physical and emotional benefits, but then life happens. It becomes a practice done only in spare time.
I have to work 5-7 days in a week, fit in a cardio routine with day light savings, walk my fur baby, teach on the weekends, get groceries, do laundry, make lunch, be on time to work, be available for my family, loved ones, and my community, and on and on. The internal dialogue cues...am I doing enough, am I the best clinician, family member, friend, student, community member, yoga teacher, and lover that I can be.
I’m beyond blessed that I get to practice compassion as a function of my career providing community mental health, but it is easy to fall out of balance when you confront human suffering. There are significant problems within our systemic and societal fabric and the only way we can solve it is compassion for ourselves and others. I have heaps of time and energy and compassion for others, but self compassion falls by the wayside when shit hits the fan.
And then I remind myself that it’s human to have all of these thoughts and worries, we are in it together. Historically, when it finally becomes a problem that can no longer be ignored I sit still and tune in, peeling away layer after layer of mind chatter.
It’s too often I’ve set this reflective time as optional and not a priority, but this time is EVERYTHING! It’s the road to; self peace, a clear mind, less stress, gratitude and deeper compassion and joy. 🌻
A grateful heart is not one that is very selective and choosy about what to be grateful for... ~Radhanath Swami~
And with sunrises like these... 😍 #gratitude ..............................................
“Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” —Hermann Hesse 💙💙💙💙 Focusing on presence, joy, and inner calm as I head into my first full week of work for the 2017-18 school year. Sending #metta to all those starting their school year as well. 💦💦💦
