why do you act so small? you are the y o u niverse in ecstatic motion 🌪

‘I’ve never seen any life transformation that didn’t begin with the person in question getting tired of their own bullshit’ @elizabeth_gilbert_writer I think that’s so true- but the challenging part is that in order to know what your own bullshit is, you have to be willing to make room for your flaws- not just seeing them, but taking ownership of them. In order to enact necessary change we have to be so vulnerable. Vulnerable in hearing what those flaws are, in talking about those flaws, and harder still, taking the painful, slow steps to change. 📸 @brianpowers

You are more powerful in the collective conscious, come practice and breath with your tribe 💫 📸: @em.sierra

dolphin & forearm stand were 2 poses I avoided for a long time - not always feeling strong enough, flexible enough... you name it, always an excuse. now they are 2 poses I incorporate into my daily practice! here’s why: •strengthens shoulders, arms, core, back •stretches chest & shoulders •energizes & vitalizes the body •increases balance & proprioception check out #embraceandempower for more variations!

When I turn inward and tune in, one of the aspect in my life that seems to need more balance is intuition vs rationalization. . When it comes to making a decision, it sometimes seems like I don't totally trust myself. I don't trust the little voice inside without asking questions. Without finding logical reasons to justify what it's saying. Especially when I don't love the idea it's trying to sell me. . It's been telling me one thing for a couple weeks. But I've been ignoring it, because I can't find a reasonable explanation. . So to step toward balancing those two aspects of my brain, today I choose to trust myself implicitly. That little voice has been telling me that massage school is not the right thing to focus my time and energy on right now. So I've put my program on hold. . I'm annoyed at the lack of explanation, but I trust that it will be for the best. . I'm disappointed that I might have made the wrong decision right from the beginning, but I trust that listening now is better than listening later or never. . I feel embarrassed to quit, but I trust the opportunity to invite more self-compassion and self-forgiveness in my life. . I feel confused but I trust. . . To balance intuition vs rationalization in my decision making, I think I need to work on trust. . Do you trust your intuition implicitly or do you negotiate with it? . .

Yoga in your hands.⠀ ⠀ I didn’t know that my hands have so much power. ⠀ My hands are central to the way I interact with the world around me. I cross my fingers in a gesture of hope every day 😄. But I didn’t know that this is hand 🤚 yoga, called Yoga Mudra.⠀ ⠀ You probably also use it every day without knowing it when you shake someone hand. ⠀ ⠀ I told you that your body contents 5 elements: Fire, Water, Wood, Earth and Metal.⠀ Your hands also hold each of the basic elements: 🔥 (thumb), 🌳 (index finger), ⛓ (middle finger), 💩 (ring finger) and 💦 (pinky finger).⠀ According to Ayurveda, if some of these basic elements are out of balance, the body can be too. If the body has too much or too little of an element, a disease can form.⠀ ⠀ A mudra is performed to direct the flow of energy through the body. With this movement of energy within the body, mudras can be used for healing as well. ⠀ The first Mudra that I learned was Chin M.⠀ 🙏 helps to lift dull energy and brightens the overall mood⠀ 🙏 promotes the energy of teaching and of discussion⠀ 🙏 helps to prevent us from entering argumentative states of mind.⠀ ⠀ Hold this Mudra up to 3min before making any serious decision 😉. ⠀ Showing Chin Mudra to @akvarelkaa. 📸: @anna_vivare What your fav Mudra? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

This photo sums up everything that I am not currently. Movers coming tomorrow. Flat is a total mess. The international move is becoming 100% real. Excited for a new adventure in NYC but also terrified about leaving behind the life that we know and love.
