A pose like Toe Stand requires intense focus, hence the pinched look on my face. 😉 Even though this pose keeps your center of gravity low, it’s still far more complicated than expected to balance on your toes. 🐾 Side note, for those of you looking to get some super fabulous yogi toes, start working poses like this to get them to spread out. 💜 #mypracticemyrules

It’s not the art itself it’s an artist. We don’t need to show a single photograph or write a word to be an artist. It radiates in everything we do. If it touches heart and makes you want to return then it’s an artist.
It takes not much time to learn to draw or write or photograph but it takes a lifetime to craft a soul and character that is worth sharing through art. I can name two or three people whose art saved my life. It wasn’t the photos or drawings or stuff that normally considered as art. It was something they made me feel that made me stay and keep going and keep creating myself. Wherever you are there is a creative power. Make art.
✨Thanks God it's Friday! ✨
Tomorrow morning I'm teaching a vinyasa yoga class in the morning and then I'll just take a (much needed) rest in the afternoon. Maybe I'll bake some goodies, I will see🍰😋 What are your plans for the weekend?
How to 🙃
I first practiced (left) when I started to learn this pose! 🐻
This is the perfect preparation pose if you're not confident to do the full pose!
🔹 From , drop your gaze down and slowly lower your crown of the head down on the mat, creating the triangle shape with your hands🔺
🔹 Keep your knees on your triceps, lift your hips over the head. POINT YOUR TOES to create uplifting energy ⬆️
🔹 LIFT your SHOULDERS BLADES UP ⬆️ and ROOT YOUR CROWN OF THE HEARD DOWN to lengthene your NECK 🙌
🔹 Relax and hold a few breath. Only if you feel comfortable, unfold your knees up. Make sure you scoop your TAIL BONE IN 👌
🔹 Hold for a few breath, and extend your feet up slowly only if you feel comfortable.
⚠️I see many students rush into the final pose, but never rush, take your time! Because we really need to be calm to make each movement mindful especially in any inversion.
And alignment comes from the bottom up. So make sure your foundation is solid and stable each time before you move into next step! 🙆
I'll talk about more details for the neck and arm alignment on the next post😘

Apparently it’s going to be raining for Bootycamp tomorrow so I thought I’d remind you of the wonder time I had in the sun in India! More importantly tho, it’s a reminder to be playful, brave, trust & unite with our fellow humans! #agonda#goa#sampoornayoga@sampoorna_yoga you really make dreams come true!
💪 💪🏻 Flexin' Friday💪🏼 💪🏽 With al the tension in life it becomes a challenge to be still or in the 'moment'
With the bridge or wheel you reverse your posture the other way around than what normally 'happens' to your body in day to day life.
Therefore you balance your physique, and create a solid foundation to grow in the direction you want to go

Currently sitting in the car while wild toddler sleeps... Enjoying an uninterrupted Starbucks. We had to come out to Columbia, SC today for my husband’s job. Meetings and then a party tonight. So that means mama gets to kill time shopping (so many great deals at Old Navy. Little girls’ tops for .99?!) and that means naps in the car for the little one. ▫️
I’m 31 weeks pregnant now and my belly is starting to get HUGE. Let’s just say I’ve got the pregnant waddle down! Yesterday I even experienced some Braxton Hicks contractions that got me super paranoid that i could be going into real labor. I totally forgot what they felt like and it has only been 2 years since i was last pregnant. .
It’s the simple moments like this that we often take for granted. It’s the little things that we forget. ▫️
Trying to soak up more of these little moments. By soaking them up, i mean being in a place of full appreciation for all that is. For the warm sunshine on my skin, the deliciousness that is in a green tea matcha, the silence as my sweet little one sleeps. Appreciating it all. ▫️
Wishing you a weekend full of little moments of big appreciation. 💙🙏🏼✨☀️ #momlife#yoga#yogateacher#yogainstructor#southcarolina#myrtlebeachyoga#mommytime#31weekspregnant
Kendin ol cok değerli 👼👼
İnsanlarla ilişki kurarken küçülmeden, eksilmeden, tam da olduğun gibi var ol.
Biraz rahatsız olabilirsin. Biraz zorlanabilirsin. Biraz narin, kırılgan hissedebilirsin. Olsun.
Sahici bağlar kurabilmenin yolu, varlığını sahicilikle ortaya koymanla başlar. .
Senin için yaşamsal olan ne? Senin için iyi olan ne? Bir insanla ilişkinde ihtiyaç duyduğun ne? Bu ihtiyacın ne kadarı gerçek? İçinde rahat nefes alabildiğin alan neresi? Diğeriyle açık iletişim kurabildiğin sınır neresi? .
Küçülme, kabuğuna çekilme, sınırlarını daraltma.
Bazen göğsündeki ateşle, bazen midendeki hafif gerginlikle, ve hep kalbindeki o yumuşaklıkla, açıklıkla var ol.
Kendin olmaya değer. Her zaman, her koşulda. .
Sahici bir bağ ancak sahici bir var oluşla mümkün.
Kendin ol. Kendini seç. Kendine sahip çık.

Why do you practice yoga? One common answer is to create some level of change; whether that be getting stronger, more flexible or better joint mobility. What is the best way to create that change? Answer: find the work in the pose. While in yoga class, it is easier to fall into habits and patterns than to find the challenge. Thus, we often miss out on opportunities to create change. Exploring those opportunities for students and teachers is what I do best! Join me in one of my live workshops to learn how to notice these details in your students and yourself as well. #yogabiomechanics#yogateacher

Finding your true purpose in life is one of the most illuminating experiences.
It is a journey of rediscovery and remembrance...a process of uncovering of the layers, returning to the roots, and allowing your true nature to unfold.
It's not always the easiest choice to make in the beginning, we have to be willing to leave our comfort zone and all that is known, and be open to trust in the great mystery of what lies ahead.
I found yoga at a time in my life when I didn't know exactly who I was or what I wanted, but I knew that there was something more.
I craved deeper connection, freedom, and to wake up everyday in love with myself and the life I created.
So I left everything I knew behind, packed a backpack and bought a one way ticket to India.
I followed my desire to explore the world and immerse myself in the practices... View the full video, link in bio ☝🏼 Thank you 📹✨ @seacoast_flash for this beautiful capture and for helping me share my story!

Our first day, preparing for our retreat.
The people at Ashiyana created the gorgeous flower blossom OM for our group. We walked in and were blown away. And each day we continue to be amazed.
Such grace, beauty, and hospitality. Our dream retreat. Thank you. We are so grateful.
