Uno de los pilares básicos de la práctica de yoga es la DISCIPLINA. Para ser disciplinado, se tiene que tener un compromiso contigo mism@. Si no tienes la capacidad de comprometerte contigo, difícilmente lo podrás hacer con tu trabajo, tu familia, tus amigos y así demás ámbitos de tu vida. La práctica de yoga es un reflejo de tu vida en general. Siempre da lo mejor de ti. Eso no significa que siempre darás tu 100%. A veces dar lo mejor significa simplemente respirar, ser paciente, amable y sonreír.

🗣I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON! I’m more of a night owl and as a creative I do my best shit in the evening hours. But my #ashtanga
practice keeps me sane especially since Ive started working an office job again!✨
The practice has taught me many things but one is #discipline
. My teachers don’t yell at me if I don’t go, I don’t get in any kind of trouble if I show up late. It’s me and ONLY ME that must hold myself accountable for my practice. Its not easy. Sometimes I go back to bed or sit on the toilet for 30 minutes contemplating my life. Other times my excuses win and I miss the day. And that too is part of the practice!✨
My goal for January is to go to every practice day. So far I’ve missed one due to the pain of spraining my sacrum and barely being able to walk. That goal will restart in February and March and every single month of 2019 and beyond. Do something enough and it becomes a habit so much so that when you don’t do it you feel off✨
Are you working on hard routines in your life or trying to create new habits for yourself? •
Unlike the Cowface, I can actually see the horse if you look at the chess set that is. And like the real horse, this pose is wild! In a steady kind of way, as all asanas should be.
But the name doesn't bring particular attention to a specific region. This one works a lot and simultaneously too.
The big toe, the external hip ROTATORS (for knee safety), the ankle, the plantar and dorsi flexion of the feet, the core (over rated), the protraction of the shoulder girdle, the gazing point. Get any of this wrong, the horse goes crashing down. In PAIN.
How about the positioning of the foot and knee. If you place the foot on the floor further away from the other knee, you think hey.. this is doable, but this is Ashtanga, OF COURSE ITS NOT THAT EASY. You are 'required' to work on touching the heel to the other knee.
Then you frown and ask why. Well, to test your endurance, engagement, focus and balance, silly.
My take on keeping everything together is in that leg with the foot flat on the ground. That's your crux. Root the big toe and the heel and simultaneously move the knee (of the same leg) away from the toe.
Then slowly walk your gaze from that toe and up the ceiling. Lift your arm higher. Slowly. And guess what? I haven't even talk about the full Vinyasa.. Oh man.. Hopefully it's voila!!!
*Oh yeah, if you have issues in doing half lotus, do not even attempt this. Work on the lotus first.

practice this evening. I am progressing. I can feel my hamstrings lengthening and my back has more space and much less pain. Breath is also steady, strong and calm. One reason why I like my personal yoga practice is that it’s always the same so I can really assess progress from one day to the next. And when I regress, I know something’s up. Generally it’s mental aggravation or my heart is aching. And that’s great info.
In my Yoga Body Lifestyle Master Class , participants are learning to establish a yoga practice at home that is suited to their body type and current needs and abilities and being consistent with it. The health benefits of that commitment alone to show up on the mat at the beginning or at the end of day is what moves the needle in their self-care practice!

Gotta love this sweet man, Sam Ramsey. Met him at Sara Daves’ Christmas party (love her too!). Sam had tried yoga once and was exasperated trying to keep up with a group. He came to RCY a few days later for Mysore (individualized semi-private lessons) and has been practicing several days a week for a month. Sam’s in the refrigeration business, with the coolest humor. His shirt reminds me of when Michael Gannon told us one of Pattabhi Jois’s sayings: “Don’t talk, just practice.” Not to be taken literally... but surely practice is more potent than talking about the possibility. Disciplined practice of 4-6 days a week is demanding, but I agree with David Swenson’s “I’ve never regretted having practiced, but there’s been some times I’ve regretted not having practiced.” #doyourpracticeandalliscoming #donttalkjustpractice #ashtanga #rva #rvayoga #beginneryoga #privateyoga #richmondcityyoga #jacksonward #dontquit
Wanna know why I’m an alignment junkie?
Well, think about a car’s wheels. If they are misaligned your effort required to keep on the car going in the right direction is much higher. You wear down your tires, things don’t go smoothly. 🏎
When the body is misaligned, our risk of getting pulled off track is higher and the risk of physical injury increases. .
When I talk about alignment it’s not just about muscles and bones. But ultimately, the energetic form and flow that is created when the physical structure finds the sweet spot. .
With practice, this alignment can be found nearly immediately in asana, the need to wiggle and maneuver your way in will decrease and ease will come. .
Check in with your breath. Is it stuck? Stuck breath = stuck body = stuck Prana. Use the breath to guide you, it doesn’t lie.
I often find students collapsed in this posture- #parsvakonasana
- hell bent (literally) on having that bottom hand flat before they are ready. It’s like a domino effect—- feet, ankles, knees, hips, spine, head, shoulders —- every link in the chain is misaligned, and the breath short and shallow.
Sound familiar? Try this tented hand position variation - not as a crutch, but as a delightfully informative experience. .

“Although yoga has its origins in ancient India, its methods and purposes are universal, relying not on cultural background, faith or deity, but simply on the individual. Yoga has become important in the lives of many contemporary Westerners, sometimes as a way of improving health and fitness of the body, but also as a means of personal and spiritual development.” “Aunque el yoga tiene sus orígenes en la antigua India, sus métodos y propósitos son universales, y no se basan en los antecedentes culturales, la fe o la deidad, sino simplemente en el individuo. El yoga se ha vuelto importante en la vida de muchos occidentales contemporáneos, a veces como una forma de mejorar la salud y la forma física del cuerpo, pero también como un medio de desarrollo personal y espiritual ". –Tara Fraser

I’m in a lot of pain right now. When I sit it hurts, when I stand it hurts, when I lay down it hurts. There are very odd and particular ways I can sit or lay where I feel no pain.
It’s been a week (tomorrow) since the accident and since I’ve done any moment or exercise at all.
I tried to stretch out today and I’m convinced I made it worse.
I’m trying to not complain so much, but it’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I keep reminding myself of what this may be teaching me...
Patience. Trust. Priorities.
Then I think to myself, I didn’t have issues in these areas so why?!
Me questioning God.. funny right?
Perhaps my focus needs to shift from all the things I can’t do and focus on all I can do.
Maybe my attitude needs to shift from self pity to GRATITUDE.
I mean things could’ve been much worse.
And they weren’t.
I’m still here.
That’s not something everyone is able to say after a crash.
If you’re at a place where you feel your circumstances are keeping you from moving forward or from doing what you really want to do, maybe you should change your perspective.
If it’s one thing I’ve learned, there is always room to grow.
God sees things within me that I can’t even see.
He sees who I am when no one is looking and maybe I need to do some searching too.
Maybe these are areas I need to work on and this is the time to do it.

A vida é engraçada, coloca pessoas que você sente que já conheceu em outras vidas.
Você já se sentiu assim?
Quando uma amizade começa pelo instagram e se torna real tem como duvidar que já não era destino? Yoga significa união!
Sou muito grata a vida que coloca pessoas tão incríveis nela!
Marque aqui a sua amiga mais querida! Quero conhecer ela tb! ❤️❤️❤️ #yoga #yogauniao #yogapousoalegre #yogaitajuba
I have a vision of myself in a red dress.
Becoming her. The woman that resides within this body. The woman I am meant to be. The one who walks her path freely, knowingly & consciously.
She is young, but wise.
Strong, but soft.
Courageous, but cautious.
Loyal, but aware.
Kind, but guarded.
Welcoming of the life the universe chose to give me although it was not the route I had planned at all.
I see you. I am arriving to you & I am grateful for the journey it took to reach you.
✨Meet Alex (formerly know as Bintu to her RTY club members in The Gambia)!
✨How did you begin your journey with RTY?
🌙I participated in the first RTY training and Girls’ Camp in The Gambia in 2016 and immediately fell in love with the curriculum. Through my time in Peace Corps The Gambia I participated in two RTY Girls’ Camps as well as a RTY program in my village. In each instance I saw how the girls grew in their comfort and confidence from the first day in which they barely spoke to the final days in which they actively shared the goals and intentions and support for each other. While I am proud of my Peace Corps service for many reasons, my work with RTY is where I felt I was able to have the strongest, deepest, and longest-lasting positive impact in my country of service.
✨What is your favorite aspect of RTY as an organization?
🌙As a staff member, I am honored to work with such a supportive, engaged, and hard-working group of women!

This guy. Honored to be part of his tribe.
“True yoga is not about the shape of your body, but the shape of your life. Yoga is not to be performed; yoga is to be lived. Yoga doesn’t care about what you have been; yoga cares about the person you are becoming. Yoga is designed for a vast and profound purpose, and for it to be truly called yoga, its essence must be embodied.”
