I love that this practice constantly requires you to reorient yourself. over and over and over again. where are you now? what do you need to find (and re-find) center? north. south. east. west. everything pushes and pulls. drawing together to bring you back home even if just for that fleeting moment(s).
and then there you are again. out place. shifted. what do you need to find center, right now, in this moment?
today was one of those practices where I truly felt, I’m good. I’m happy where I’m at, I’m not longing, aching for more poses or wishing I had more. During a well rounded and lovely long morning practice with @phillipaskew I had a moment of “if this is all I can ever do physically then I’m a lucky chick”
Not every practice feels like this, maybe tomorrow won’t. Maybe someone’s Instagram photo will get the best of my ego next week or in an hour but right now contentment is a welcome feeling.
I’ve been accused of false dualism before but you just gotta love the amazing things our bodies do for us. I like to think of my body as a close friend, there for you even when you say a few mean things in the heat of the moment. Happy to forgive and get back to the love.
Thanks strong body, you da best.

I know it’s not #gratitudemonday anymore but this morning I’m feeling grateful for the chaos that is my life. After a long, busy weekend of teaching workshops, classes, more classes and more yoga, I am exhausted, but happily exhausted. So much love to all our wonderful students, the regular studs, new faces we met and even some of you lovely IG and Tumblr friends that came out.
Love love love for the work we are so lucky to do and share through yoga.
