Attachment and cravings are the root of suffering....
We are all attached to something that creates instant pleasure in our lives, what is it for you?
Can you let it go?
Think of the cost of you letting it go, and then visualize the possibilities of your life without it.
How does this make your gut feel?
Trust that feeling.
To grow, get uncomfortable and follow your fears.
Pleasure is short term, happiness is long term.
The only constant is change, let it go to let it flow!

I never saw yoga before I tried it.
What i mean is, i worked at a YMCA where it was offered. I took a yoga class having no ide what the heck yoga was. I remember feeling lost, not understanding the poses, or what the teacher wanted me to do. This was before social media showed us #yogainspo and before studios popped up on every corner.
It took a while to figure out what I should be doing. The other students were advanced. I was intimidated, but I eventually came into my own style.
I found what felt right for me. I gave myself permission to explore.
I was softened.
Upside down and on cloud 9. Big things to come...I know, I know, keep saying that, but it’s true!
Btw did you know @walkthetalkyoga is now on Facebook?! Head on over and give us a like/follow✅ Schedules and events will be more easily posted there✌🏽
Lots of rain did not stop me from dragging @johnwlees out for pictures. It was actually quite refreshing to have the rain misting rather than the sun glaring down 🌦 . .

Day 1 of #BendingintoSummer is cobra. . .
Day 6 #YouOnlyGetAmazing !
Crow pose!! - this was the pose that got me 'into' yoga. I was amazed when I first saw it, so I made it my mission to learn 😅. After over balancing and falling on my face many times, I realised I wasn't as weak as I had thought. I love this pose! I'm still fairly new to it so am now working on finding my flight.
I AM SO HAPPY I CAN DO THIS!!!
Thanks to all the host and sponsers. 🙏
meditation monday •
take 10 minutes for yourself to sit, listen, and be. there’s nothing quite as special as being there for yourself to just be still and do nothing. start your week right babies!!! xo 🎐
Another #powerful#Tantra post by @kinoyoga! It’s not always easy to talk about the challenges we grow through. Surrender to the Universe and seek shelter in your knowledge of The Divine. That’s your most important relationship; the one between your selves, and the Universe.
Tantra is a tool. Like bible study, my practice centers me where I can’t run away from my growing pains. Surrender. It works. The Universe will take you through many paths, but don’t lose sight of the journey. Be #mindful . #staywoke#hawaiilife#companion#tantricpractices#tantrika#yogini#yoga#intimacy#growth
“O oceano não rejeita rio algum” - diz a prece sufi 🙏🏻
Mas, o que isso significa?
Quando o rio termina de percorrer o seu caminho, ele deságua no oceano e deixa de ser rio? Ou ele nunca foi “rio” e sempre foi oceano, mas com outro formato e nome?
O oceano não rejeita rio algum porque toda água que deságua nele é a mesma água que já o compõe, mesmo que elas tenham nomes diferentes ou percorram diferentes caminhos.
Todas essas águas são o oceano. 🌊
E se o seu corpo e o meu corpo são feitos de 70% de água, mesmo que tenhamos um rosto e uma história de vida diferentes, oq nos difere essencialmente?
Se somos também natureza, se somos também água, o oceano não nos rejeita.
Enxergar-se natureza, enxergar-se rio, enxergar-se oceano, é permitir-se fluir sem rigidez.
Abrir-se para receber o que a vida e o Universo te oferecem, deixar ir aquilo que precisa ir... como as águas de um rio.
O oceano não rejeita rio algum 🙏🏻 #hariom#yogini#yogabr#yoginilife#om#namaste#ocean#river#flow#vinyasa#vinyasaflow#vinyasayoga#yogabrasil#yogasp#yogaspirit#yogaeverday#mariliazaitz#yoga
I took a rest from instragram which I really needed to focus on my practice and my emotions. But I'm back with more energy and I'm ready for some more yoga photos!

I used to hate doing presentations in front of people. I just wasn't comfortable with beeing in the centre of attention and having my presentation being questioned. I was actually afraid that people would question me! And my competence. Do I really deserve this I used to ask myself. Really, I have always been hard on myself, I have been judging myself and putting myself in a corner I know I don't deserve to be in. Essentially it all came down to me being scared of beeing me. When I began beeing as humble and forgiving to myself as I was to others, it all changed. And this is where yoga came in. Yoga is my tool, that helps me accept me where I am at the moment. A month ago I did a big presentation for all managers at my organisation and instead of getting nervous and questioning my abilities I had fun. And I did great! Today was another of those days, I did a presentation in front of a room filled with colleagues and I made them laugh! That is something I couldn't even amagine doing six months ago!
I haven't been posting as much, but I am still practicing! I have missed a few days of yoga though because my schedule has changed a bit. Working on readjusting!! Here is an older photo that I never posted. It is such a dynamic pose if you really activate and engage yourself! You press through palms, shoulders are strong, core tucks and lifts, legs are stretching and strong simultaneously. Great to work towards handstands!
너무 신경 써서 그런가 싶어서 아예 무심해도 보고 면역력에 좋다는 약도 먹고 연고도 바르고 긴 시간 반복되면서 흉터랑 착색이 심해서 악착같이 내내 메디폼 붙여서 달고 살고 7일 중 5일은 다리랑 피부로 고통받으면서 일 년 넘게 지냈는데 이번 달 역시 죽어나다가 겨우 좀 깨끗해지나 했더니 다시 무너지고 같은 자리에 수포 올라와서 따갑고,, 조금 나아지는 데는 15일 이상이 걸리는데 어제 저녁이랑 오늘 아침. 어떻게 반나절만에 이렇게 되는지 지긋지긋하게 반복인지 나도 신기하고 역겹고 괴롭다 타인이 대신해줄 수 없는 일인 걸 알고 위로도 이해도 아무 의미가 없어 그냥 나 그렇다고.
하고 나서 비참해지는 얘기는 그다지 안 하고 싶었는데 글로라도 내 비치니까 마음은 조금 편안해져서
없는 것보단 가진 것에 만족하고 살아야 하겠지만.
손 발이 있고 숨 쉬고 보고, 듣고 말하고 내가 당연스럽게 하고 있는 것들조차 감사한 일인 걸 알지만 당장 눈앞에 놓여있는 걸 무시할 수는 없는 일
내 독은 내가 해소해야지 그게 안돼서 문제지만
