High tops and yoga pants. Learning french podcasts in gridlock traffic. Old friends that I can be super SUPER weird with. The way wisdom nuggets comes back in right moments. My business. The way my parents love me. FINALLY seeing a marriage post and not feeling pangs of "why me/why not me" fear. Realizing how far I've come to advocate for my own wellbeing. Independent coffee shops. Bon Iver.

There is a twisted belief upheld silently by our culture about not doing. Not doing, not forging forward, not progressing, not scaling or not leveling up...these are the demons among us, and as entrepreneurs, within us . . But will ya look at these rock climbers??! . . They're not doing shiiiiiit. And they came out of a 15 minute set of upside down poses like this one, looking refreshed, HAPPY, grateful and relaxed. .

Every Wednesday evening at @yoga_noho Take this midweek reboot! . . Restorative yoga is the practice of retraining your muscles and mind to relax. Supported yoga poses align the physical and energetic body, creating an environment of calm. . . Guided breathwork and meditation then bring the mind into relaxation. โœจ This practice is more effective than "relaxing" on the couch after a long day.

" There are no beginner or advanced students - the first step is the last step." (Because everything after that is just practice.) ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ A glimpse at my sunset practice after serving my last class of students for 2017. ๐Ÿค— SO many times I went to bed EXHAUSTED and content because my job and my career and my life are all on purpose.

This is now called "Tech Neck." Are you doing it right now? ... ๐Ÿ˜ The shortened muscle is the same one I posted about yesterday. the best alignment for your neck is to balance your head above your upper back, but Tech Neck brings the head in front of the chest, causing s tone of pressure build up and muscle compensation. #Anatomy #YogaTeacher #Alignment #NeckPain #BackPain #TakeCareOfYourself #LightInsideYoga #YogaAnatomy #YogaEveryDamnDay #SelfMassage #Wellness #Mood #Technology #physicaltherapy #jointpain #headache #shoulderpain #chestpain #centered #throatchakra
SWIPE FOR VIDEO - This big suspension cable (the sternocleidomastoid) helps to turn the head and drop the head down. The SCM is associated with the sinuses and can be affected by allergies as much as slouching over your phone. ๐Ÿ™„ I became dear friends with mine after my first whiplash incident. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I wouldn't recommend getting into a car accident to feel or know how important keeping it malleable is (not too stiff and not atonal). ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ Swipe to find a simple self-care practice you can literally do right now. ...and again just before bed ๐Ÿค—#lightinsideyoga #selfcare #foryou #freebie #jawtension #headacherelief #allergyattack #neckpain #whiplash #selfmassage #centered #wellnesswednesday #wellbeing #entrepreneurlifestyle #yogalife #skillshare #tipsandtricks #yogainspiration #yogateacher #selflove #painmanagement #techneck #yogavideo
Good shoes will let you do this inside of them ๐Ÿ˜‰ Toe spreading allows the incredible biotechnology that is our feet do its thing - to read the terrain beneath us and make a smart shift so we don't fall or stumble. . . Toe articulation helps with balance, grounding, and lift-off when we take a step. If this part of the gait pattern is lost from poor shoe choices or a habit made from an old injury or having to walk a certain way around the office or your home, it can create an entire chain of imbalance and injury up the legs and into the lower back. ๐Ÿ™ TL;DR ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ= PLAY WITH YOUR FEET EVERYDAY! #lightinsideyoga #posture #takeahike #goforawalk #footsie #goodshoes #gait #walking #healthcare #healthyhabits #alignment #anatomy #footqueen #bewell #nourish #rejuvenation #yogapractice #yogalife #yogainspiration #yogalover #toes

This is the country that I want to live in, and everyday that I "go to work" I am investing every talent and tool that I have to make this come to pass. . . I strive to live in the kind of country where citizens are conscious of their health, involved in their wellbeing, actively questioning what serves them and what diminishes them, working side-by-side with people of all sizes, ages, abilities, ethnicities, education levels, medical history, skeletal variance, mental health history, sexuality and professional capacity. โœŠ๏ธ . . The wellness of our individual being IS beyond politics and creed. It is beyond the law of man and the religion or theory we narrate to get us from birth to death. It is THE PROCESS that takes up every waking and unconscious moment of our lives. Healthy living IS nature in her greatest expression โœŠ๏ธ . . When we are WELL and whole, we cannot tolerate toxicity. ...who and what continue to keep you unwell and unfit? #enoughalready . . . #gettowork #dobetter #dontquit #keepgoing #stewardship #advocate #healthcarenotdiseasecare #wakeup #socialjustice #wellnesswarrior #wellbeing #healthcare #holistichealth #wellbeing #mindfulness #yogalife #takecare #lightinsideyoga

I have an alternative to your phone alarm ! This app replaces it by waking you up with an audio yoga practice that you pick out the night before. I recorded 3 that are between 8-12 minutes. One is specifically for people who sleep on their sides (which isn't great for your shoulder health or breath capacity, btw) . The first week is free! Listen and let me know how it goes? .

This is a thing! Knee hyper extension is a genetic/structural feature. Over time, this can cause damage to the biological duct tape that secures the knee joint against injury and disease- namely the supporting structure in front of the knee joint (aka the ACL) and behind the knee joint (the PCL). . . Because it's the norm for people who have hyperextensive joints, it is hard to feel when it's happening to help prevent injury. ENTER: mindfulness ๐Ÿ˜Ž . . The dotted line illustrates where we want gravity to travel through the leg in order to find the ground- this is the path of least resistance. With hyperextended knees, this pathway shifts, causing wear-and-tear. #kneehyperextension #anatomy #alignment #balance #acl #meniscus #kneepain #yoga #practiceyoga #align #healthcare #healthyhabits #yogalife #yogateacher #yogatherapy #yoga101 #knowyourself #lightinsideyoga #gravity #gettingold
To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do." - Herman Hesse . . .

Saturday morning: Gentle Back Care yoga class ๐Ÿ˜ When I first started teaching, everyone wanted to teach vinyasa classes...sweaty, fast paced and low-key competitive. โ˜บ๏ธI love teaching THIS style because 1.) people ACTUALLY need to retrain the mind to slow down 2.) it calms the nervous system which makes the whole of life better 3.) it's inclusive and preventative healthcare 4.) it's humble #joblove #yogateacher #dowhatyoulove #lovewhatyoudo #yogaclass #gentleyoga #yogarx #backcare #healthcare #healthyliving #onpurpose #intentional #domoreyoga #meditationclass #breathwork #pranayama #relaxationtraining #healthyhabits #lightinsideyoga #shermanoaks #studiocity #beverlyglen #beverlyhills

Imagine a snow globe being shaken up: all of the snow particles swimming and floating and sinking in chaos...the "settling" happens naturally via gravity in this microcosm of a weather phenomenon. โ„๏ธ If that snow globe was actually YOU as a complete being (subtle and material YOU), the shaking up is the same as just being alive. . . Life = the movement. . . The settling doesn't happen on its own once you begin to have micro-moments of stress...or career-spans of it, for that matter. ๐Ÿ˜ญAspects of your being may settle: getting closure on ONE relationship, making amends for that ONE thing, heeding that ONE lesson, etc. ๐ŸŒจ . . Meditation...yoga...mindfulness practices SETTLE the inner space. Read: it doesn't erase it. It settles the ruckus. Expecting your mind to settle on its own is like expecting your heart to stop beating at will or your liver to stop filtering on command. ๐Ÿ‘Ž . .

"Light moves on its pathways through space, enters the eyes, and you absorb the luminous. โœจ Each sense is a current of divinity, sparkling with mystery. Light, motion, space, vision, awareness - all are composed of omnipresence. The senses connecting you to the outer world are paths of communion with the inner world. โœจ Every sight, sound, smell, taste, touch - a greeting from the Beloved. Radiance Sutra 117 โœจ When I feel too heady, too introverted or cut off from life, I turn to my physical senses. Each one offers different feedback and all together create an experience I can call reality. ...the physical senses help me feel grounded. Tuning into each one on its own is a meditative practice in focus and gratitude. ...one day they will be different, maybe some will be muted or gone, completely... loving these senses and how integrated they seem by the brilliant cooperation of my brain and the totality of my being human. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ #earthling #humanbeing #lightinsideyoga #planetearth #yogalife #gratitudepost #mondaymood #foundart #streetart #lovewins #cali #yogateacher #rambling #radiancesutra #philosophy #bliss #senses #commonsense #mindful #awareness
"Mindfulness in its most general sense is about waking up from a life on automatic, and being sensitive to novelty in our every day experiences. ๐Ÿ’ฅ With mindful awareness the flow of energy and information that is our mind enters our conscious attention and we can both appreciate its contents and also come to regulate its flow in a new way. ๐ŸŒŸ Mindful awareness, actually involves more than just simply being aware: it involves being aware of aspects of the mind it self. Instead of being on automatic and mindless, mindfulness helps us awaken, and by reflecting on the mind we are enabled to make choices and this change becomes possible. โœจ How we focus attention helps directly shape of the mind." - Daniel Siegel . . . . Many yoga instructors teach poses. I'm here to teach mindfulness through yoga posture, breath awareness and self-reflective process. โ˜๏ธ #digdeeper #lightinsideyoga #mindfulness #mindful #meditation #realyoga #radicalselfacceptance #forwardfold #introspection #introvert #yogateacher #neuroscience #wellbeing #healthcare #bewell

From my brilliant philosophy and anatomy teacher, Gil Hedley: "Genuine listening requires that you willingly bare witness to what someone else needs to say while simultaneously sparing them of your own solution, defense, dismissal, alternative reality, rebuttal, counterpoint, comparable story or more extreme example. ๐Ÿ”ฅThis kind of listening is a very "active" part to play in a conversation. You have to believe for those moments that none of the things you might say could possibly be as valuable as hearing someone out. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅYou may need to employ every ounce of your strength of character to actually pay attention and not butt-in with your own bit. That kind of attention paid to another is powerful medicine." ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’“#gilhedley #somanaut #innerspace #anatomist #geeksgonnageek #loversgonnalove #fascia #mindfulness #meditation #intimacy #activelistening #communication #nvc #relationship #yogalife #realyoga #lightinsideyoga #healthyhabits #healthycommunication

Your legacy is determined by your actions and those actions are either intentional, in process of becoming intentional or unintentional and driven by habit. ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ Hey, people who are TRYING to be more mindful and actively help the state of affairs: keep showing up to your practices- not just when everything lines up and feels perfect and matchy matchy- show up in the grime, show up in the rain, show up when your friend bails and when you're too tired, show up when you still have stuff on your To-Do list. ..because it's always going to rain, there will always be more to get done, people will always bail...but your integrity can bring you a WORLD of strength. #practicemakesprogress #lightinsideyoga #discipline #integrity #yogalife #spirituality #notjustwhenitsconvenient #showup #walkthetalk #grit #hustlehard #247 #inspiration #motivationalspeaker #leadership #healthyhabits #habitchange
DIY backbend: Half Locust Pose to Full Locust + Child/Embryo Pose for counterbalance. ๐Ÿ’™ Backbends keep the back line of muscles conditioned, helping to prevent excessive slouching, compression and compromised breath support. Backbends also open the chest and abdomen, providing space for the organs and lungs to do their jobs well! ๐Ÿ˜Ž #lightinsideyoga #backbends #yogateacher #yogavideo #athomeworkout #spine #healthyhabits #childspose #locustpose #sundayfunday #goodtimes
