You shoud always desire to learn and know new things - soaking up and absorbing as much wisdom and knowledge as possible and then applying those new and fresh truths to your life! If something doesn't add value to your life.. then it's absence will make no difference! It’s a mindset that you take everywhere and it’ll eventually reward you.. welcome the new and it'll add value 💗😊
So I set a new intention last week with the new moon 🌑 (something new I’m trying) and feeling focused and ready to go.
I’m beginning the Empow(her) training program with @_adamwillis today for 8 weeks; and practising yoga with @catmeffan every morning (her Yoganuary series, yes I know it’s not January)
I always start off with determination & inner strength but realised that’s it’s my time management that gets in the way. I’m like the most organised person (slight OCD I admit 🙄) but it is starting to impact on my time management, as I have been finding that I can’t rest until things are done, impacting on not having enough time to achieve my goals!
So this little mantra is a reminder to myself that I am strong and have the inner strength to do this; I am content, in this very moment - little things can wait to be done, they will still be there to do; and I am enough. Just as I am.
I am strong.
I am content.
I am enough.

✨😁30-40 mins of warm-up free flow sped up to <1min~😁✨ free flow is my favorite way to practice yoga and what 90% of my home practice is. I practiced in the studio for years before I got to the point where I was comfortable practicing this way though. Yoga takes time. Most good things in life do. I still make sure to check in with these videos though and seek out teachers I trust and respect to correct my alignment. Never trust a teacher (of any kind) who doesn't also identify as a student. There is always more to learn. One of my favorite things about being a teacher (of English, not yoga😂) is the consistent checks on my ego. Though it is not always comfortable, living in your own perfect imperfection is such a growing, healing experience. Especially for us millennials who were told we were perfect until suddenly we we're not 🤷🏼♀️ Accept criticism with love, assume it is given in love. Acknowledge your mistakes, look them in the eyes; it should be as comfortable as looking in the mirror, cause that's exactly what it is.

I spoke to my students this weekend about commitment: committing fully to the posture.
It’s funny, I teach two back to back classes on Sundays. The first is an intermediate class and the second is a beginners class.
And I’ve come to notice something very interesting; when I lead my beginner students into a basic posture, they literally do exactly as I ask them to. And they stay for the entire breath count.
When I cue the same posture in my intermediate class, the students do one of 3 things (or sometimes all 3 🙈):
1) they hesitate to enter the pose until everyone else has,
2) they release early, or
3) they only enter the posture halfway and hold there so it’s easier 😂
And I kinda get it.
Warrior 2 when you’ve been practicing yoga for a couple years seems dull compared to something like headstand or flying lizard.
But that doesn’t mean it’s useless! Warrior 2 is a strengthening pose, a hip-opener, and when done properly, should give you the yummiest burning sensation in your front quad.
I think my sentiments come from years of Ashtanga and traditional Hatha classes where the teacher counts the breaths slower than molasses in January and the students hold their alignment with such brilliant discipline.
It sounds militant but I’m a firm believer that strong foundations are the key to an injury-free practice.
So here I am flowing through the basics. You can see me self adjusting making sure my ribs are tucked in and my shoulders are stacked. My muscles never stop working. Nor should they.
So, if this speaks to you, next class see if you can COMMIT to all the postures you encounter, fully. Whatever they might be. And then stay, breathe deeply through the entire breath-count whether it’s 5 breaths, 10 breaths or just one. Give yourself a chance to actually experience the posture. You might actually like the challenge!

this Friday at work was one of the worst days I have experienced in my nursing career thus far. it was just one thing after another. one of those nights where all you have to eat is half an apple, half a cliff bar, and about 300 ml of water..my fellow nurses know all about that.. anyway it’s been a rough week work wise and this whole wrist injury thing is really freaking frustrating. I’m still trying to figure out what my yoga looks like without being able to get on my hands and am desperately trying not to lose muscle or flexibility. it’s incredibly frustrating. so that’s about how my week has been. just keepin’ it real on the gram as always. happy Sunday night/Monday morning. 🤷🏽♀️

I’ve got a two week holiday from work & I plan to surround myself with people that fill my heart & lift my spirit. People who, through their actions encourage me to be the best version of me that I can. Love is not just words, it is embodied by behaviour. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

The purpose of a strap is to extend your arms in order to combat the lack of flexibility.
The strap allows you to practice asanas which are beyond your ability right now. It gives you support and makes your body familiar with the pose.
It also prevents injury.
We generally ask beginners to use the strap in order to perform certain asanas and get comfortable with it.

The Throat Chakra, the fifth chakra, is located at the bottom of the throat, near the base of the neck. It is the energy center for communication and creativity. This chakra is your ability to speak and hear the truth depending on how balanced your fifth chakra is. Opening your throat chakra will help you to let go of criticism, judgment, and addictions. You will be able to make wise decisions in life, express yourself with confidence, and use your personal power to follow your dreams. If you feel uncertain, doubtful, fearful, have difficulites in making decisions or telling the truth, are a habitual liar, have poor learning ability, you could definately benefit from this chakra healing. Throat chakra healing could also be very helpful if you suffer from headaches, stiff neck, shoulder tension, sore throat, thyroid problems, or problems with your gum or teeth.
