#yogiseeyogido this week... Not the backbend it should be, but I think it just re-adjusted my shoulder 🙄 Random question...( or not if you saw my last story) What is your experience with celebrities? Is it common for you and no big deal? Or do you get nervous regardless of who it is? I wonder if these celebrities (or wives and daughters of former world leaders...) are used to people getting flustered around them. They're just people too...but omg... my class was such a disaster because I was so nervous to have famous people in the room... So embarrassing 😶😶
#transformationtuesday The second pic came up in my memories today and I thought it would be fun to do the same pose for day 2 of #HumbleYogisShine . . Where's the transformation? ...About 15 lbs heavier than I was 4 years ago, a shit ton of injuries, insomnia, frequent crippling anxiety and/or depression. My nervous system and adrenals are so wasted that the things I used to be able to breathe through will mess me up for days. But I'm still here. I'm trying so hard to get back to myself. Back to feeling vibrant and thriving. I've learned a lot of things along the way. I have a bigger toolbox for my holistic arsenal. I know what works and what doesn't. Sometimes it's like feeling around the dark until you find a match, a light that flares and goes out almost immediately. . I'm so grateful for those days and moments when I feel like myself again. There are more of them lately, and that makes me hopeful. I'm slowly beginning to trust myself again. I'm looking forward to more of that. . .

I missed this... Just playing and moving without purpose or goal. Doing what feels good. It feels like it's been so long since I've had the space to do this. Between 2 years of cold houses, too long of a commute too many classes of my own to juggle and far too many injuries, this feels like forever. It also feels like coming home. I'm not going to dive right back into a super advanced practice because I'm still healing, but I'm so much more open than I've been in a while. Moral of the story is: Don't get seduced by a beautiful old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere in July.... trust me on this one. Because sooner than you realize it's January and hovering just above freezing in your bedroom and you can't get warm for 8 months. 😂😂😂😭😭 It was certainly an adventurous year!
Something like that... Jumping in on another challenge that already looks like it's going to have some fun shapes- like this bridge/compass hybrid. #Repost @mrs_khaleesi_gaither with @kimcy929_repost • • • • • • HUMBLE- I think that it’s so easy to get on Instagram and see other accounts that inspire you and possibly doubt the worth of your own practice.

Trying out some challenges this month to get the creativity flowing First up: #Repost @piccolayogini with @kimcy929_repost • • • • • • 🎉New challenge announcement🎉 #ShapeYourLotus When: July 8-14 Join us in this 7 days yoga challenge dedicated to one of the most recognized asanas, padmasana! Lotus pose or padmasana is an amazing asana with many benefits for both the body and the mind. On a physical level, it opens up the hips, it stretches the ankles and the knees, it improves the posture, it keeps the spine long, it helps easing sciatica pain, it stimulates the abdomen and the bladder etc. On a mental and spiritual level, padmasana is a phenomenal pose for meditation! It calms the mind and it makes us feel grounded and connected to Earth. Another beautiful aspect of this pose is the huge amount of variations: we hope that you will enjoy what we chose for you to explore 🙏 As lotus requires tremendous opening of the hips and deep bending of the knees, please, adopt modifications and/or use props if you are new to the yoga practice or if you have any kind of hips or knees injury. . . . List of poses: Day 1: half lotus with standing pose Day 2: lotus with seated pose Day 3: lotus with side plank or reverse plank Day 4: lotus with any heart opener Day 5: lotus with any arm balance Day 6: lotus with inversion Day 7: come up with your own version of lotus pose: be creative! . . . 💖List of hosts: @yogi.hemaxi @karletyoga @ele_argi @piccolayogini 🎁List of sponsors: @blossomyogawear @gocleveryoga @madhippieskinproducts @meddyteddy @mindoverlather @yourbondhu ➡️HOW TO JOIN: 1) repost this flyer 2) tag 3 friends in the comments 3) follow all hosts and sponsors (we will check 👩✈️) 4) post your daily pic/pics/video using hashtag #ShapeYourLotus and tagging each host and sponsor 7) set your profile to public so we can see your work . . #yogachallenge #lotuspose #padmasana #hipopener #meditation #relaxation
Second krama of this weekend's flow. (4x speed) I had an amazing energetic class this morning. It's so fun to live in a popular vacation spot and have so many visitors and new faces to practice and share space. Schedule at VY: Sun 10-11:15a Mon 5:30-7p Wed 6-7p
My first time playing with #yogiseeyogido because I love a good #lizardpose shape....and because I miss this community, dammit. I love this #yogafam I love how many ideas get shared here. Let's keep it flowing. Keep expanding. #neverstopplaying #neverstopexploring @mrs_khaleesi_gaither
Post class play.... Trying *slowly* to get some of my mobility back
Filling in for @yogawithcelina 's Ashtanga inspired flow tomorrow morning, come practice with me before you head to the party! @village.yoga 10-11:15
Which variation is your favorite to open your heart? #warriorpose with heel down, or #anjaneyasana with lifted heel?
It's wedding season! "Check out my hot new romper" ...me all day😶😂
I've been too busy unpacking to keep up with even a tiny challenge, but I took a break to hit the last day of #SummerVibeAsanas with a #mermaidbind -in one of my favorite places I haven't gotten to enjoy for over 3 years. Imagine sounds of fat green leaves rustling in a perfect 75° breeze and river water flowing over rocks ... It's finally summer in Maine! After 9 months of winter (Not even joking) , it feels so good to sit on the deck and enjoy the air😍 . . . . 💖List of hosts: @amyweckermd @rbf.julie @c.hamp.ionyogi @piccolayogini 🎁List of sponsors: @solosolmovement @asparagussoapco @vital.you @shaktiyogawheelbyjess @yogawarriorwear @chasinunicorns .
Happy solstice and International yoga day! Sore today from getting back on my mat after a little hiatus because of moving. A sweaty powerful vinyasa with @yogawithcelina yesterday is just what I needed to kick start my practice again. I started this journey over 20 years ago when I was 17. My practice has evolved over time, as has my teaching style for the past 12. I will never stop growing with this practice, and I am consistently humbled and awed by it, the way it shines through, you have no choice but to confront what comes up. A door that once opened, can never be closed again. #internationalyogaday #internationaldayofyoga2019
I couldn't decide between the two poses today for #SummerVibeAsanas So I played with both 🙄 Here's a floating #fallenstarpose And a flaccid #fireflypose 😂 It's been a while since I've just been able to play.

I'm on a 5 day mini vacation so I've been enjoying some really good deep sleeps (finally!) And today I had a nice long home practice, feeling the winter slowly melt from my bones. Enjoying this space while I still can.
I couldn't resist... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The photo on the bottom came up in my memories today from 2014, and I just happened to be wearing the same shirt. We're both a little worn out, but still kicking #samesamebutdifferent #wbw
I have to say, my back still hurts, which is bumming me out, but being able to have restful sleeps for the past handful of nights has been nothing short of a GD miracle. #smallvictories
