Through the practice of Sheng Zhen we can maintain this lightness of being, and therefore good health! We learn to quiet the heart and mind, which reduces overthinking. And we do this through moving and non-moving meditations. Sound good?? Check out our free online school. ✨ #shengzhen #meditation #shengzhenmeditation #openheart #quietmind #goodhealth
“And therein lies the whole of man’s plight. Human time does not turn in a circle; it runs ahead in a straight line. That is why man cannot be happy: happiness is the longing for repetition.” ― Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being . And with that simple thought Kundera runs and runs, exploring to it’s darkest and most elusive depths throughout this little book. I can’t imagine a more enlightening reading experience; it is writing that drips with wisdom. Some lands heavy like big wet drops, but most hangs all around like a fine mist soaking you to the bone without you barely noticing. And the best bit, is that when you finish, you are certain that no matter how much you took with you, you’ve left just as much for next time. And there will be a next time, because it demands to be read again and again. And again. . . Have you ever felt this way about a book?
Dark daydreams in my sketchbook. Allowing myself full freedom of thought by not using reference photos at all just seeing what my brain wants to create.
“You’re a yoga instructor, you must be good at handstands, you must be able to do the splits...” I get comments like these all the time. For some reason I think people confuse yoga and gymnastics or acrobatics. I’m bendy but I’m no contortionist. The purpose of my practice is to energize my body, create a deeper connection to my physical body, quiet and clear my mind, bring love and empathy into my heart and an overall lightness of being. Although the postures are important in helping mobility and to open my body the practice works on much deeper levels than the surface. It’s about the attitude you cultivate on the mat not what you look like on it. . . 📷 @_roblittle . . . #yogisofinstagram #foodforthought #yogalife #lightnessofbeing #whatislove #goddess #innergoddess #innerpeace #thatsjustlikeyouropinionman #thedude #deepthoughts
You guys: he came home from work and was all 🔄🔃🔁😅😂🙌🏼💓💓💓 (I shouldn’t say “it’s the cutest”. But, it’s a fact: it’s the cutest!!) • It’s the week when the Beginners learn to roll, in preparation for later learning how to roll into Sarvangasana. • When he was practising, before going up to teach, he said tonight: “I want to feel these poses in my body.” • True dat 🙌🏽... It is necessary. What is taught should first be known from experience. • “Asana done from the brain makes one heavy and done from the heart makes one light. When should an asana be soft and when should it be rigid? In motion the whole muscle should be like the petals of the flower, open and soft. Never be rigid in motion...” —BKS Iyengar, “Light on Life” 🌺🌿🌺🌿💫🌟 . . . #iyengaryoga #iyengar #bksiyengar #lightonlife #lightheart #lightnessofbeing #learningtoroll #somersault #remembertoplay #playfulness #beginnersyoga #beginnersmind #yogaforbeginners #balmain #yogainsydney #motionislotion #freedomofspirit #upsidedown #rightsideup #learninginversions #shoulderstand #salambasarvangasana #yogaposes #yogapractice #practiceyoga #yogahomepractice #inversions #yogasana #yogateaching #fromtheheart

You are a meaning-making machine, my darling. . Once upon a time, long ago, you made decisions. . About yourself. . Others. . The world . You had to! . To make sense of it. . Because confusion was intolerable. . So you made yourself wrong. And others. . Thinking you were in some way not enough. . To make meaning out of the chaos. . You are not wrong for doing so. . But now my darling, let us take another look. . Make like a detective 🔎 . Let us look at the meanings you made about yourself. . It’s easier than you think, I promise. . We can take a look. . And re-write the story. . It’s never too late. . Take my hand. . Let’s find the gold. . Because you, my darling, are an unimaginable treasure. ~ ѕℓ . . 🎨@luspider 🙏🏼
Blurry cold. Scenes from the artic ❄️ These Winter months are always dreamy and never cease to inspire me to take action and build meaningful things in my life. My heart's on the move.

. "I am proud to belong to a religion which has taught the world both tolerance and universal acceptance. As different streams having different sources all mingle their waters in the sea, so different tendencies, various though they appear, crooked or straight, all lead to God." ~ Swani Vivekananda #myanmar #truereligion #lightnessofbeing #lightandshadow #translucence #spirituality #wanderingsoul #artismylife #travelogues #monk

✨L I G H T N E S S✨ Which of these morning intentions resonates with you the most? 1. A joyful, energetic body 2. Love and compassion in the heart 3. Reflective, alert, quiet mind 4. Lightness of being @deepakchopra shared these everyday 4 morning intentions with my teacher Rachel @yoga_girl on one of her recent podcasts. Number 4 really resonatea with me... Much better to float through life with peace and calm than heaviness and struggle. How do you do this? I’m not exactly sure!!! Some things for me - smiling 😁 surrounding yourself with good energy people, yoga helps (ofcourse! 😅) to find that spaciousness and openness in the body. Any more ideas? It can be a constant battle to cultivate lightness mentally and physically, there’s so many obstacles and distractions but the intention behind your actions is everything. x . . . 📸 @carolcarnielphoto 🌱
One thing I have always appreciated is the ability to move to dance to have fun -‘the joy of #lightnessofbeing It holds one Steady strong in the face of many of life’s hardest lessons and travels ... So remember to shake a move or dance a shake and feel that #sparkle inside out ...💫 #sundaymorning #journeywithin #reflection #travelawesome #awareness #cosmicdance #whirlingdervish
A great pleasure to teach 3 new students to meditate today ! They loved it !@meditation.as.medicine #effortless #stressless #deepakchopra #lightnessofbeing
Change the end game because you ain’t getting rid of negative thoughts. They’re with you for life. But you can master them. Peace ✌🏽 #kjfreedom

I’ve had this quote on speed dial this week, shooting it off left, right and centre, after so many conversations with friends suffering through dark and lonely feelings. There’s so much to discuss, unpack and share when it comes to the trenches of that dark, lonely place we can inhabit. A feeling that can hit anyone hard, not just singles. We have to rally hard around one another in those times and shed light. We need to talk about loneliness more. Something I’m musing over in my writing right now. • • How do we shed light in that dark and lonely place? For ourselves and for others? Do you talk about your loneliness? • • • #darkness #loneliness #shedlight #lightnessofbeing #feeleverything #thethingswedonttalkabout #hafiz #singlemum #singlemumlife #singleparent #singlewoman #singleparenting #quotes #quotestoliveby #quoteoftheday #soulfood #wordstoliveby #motivationalquotes #inspiration #motivation #thesinglesomebody #singlesomebody #thesinglesomebodyblog #singlewoman #thoughtoftheday #newblog #blog #blogger #newblogger

Making space... The biggest question WHY? What brought me to this space? Why I’m doing what I’m doing? Why? What is the motivation beyond any decision?🔥 . . I do this also! I'm trying to force something that doesn’t belong to me by pushing and dressing up with my visions, I’m struggling and actually wasting my energy and precious time on something that I don’t feel full with the blood in my veins. . WHAT do you really want? If something is not working is not working... the end. Leave it and I promise this world to have something much, much better for you! Answer this small question WHY and just see what your soul desire.... Why I’m stepping every day on my yoga mat? Why I choose this path? Why am I here on this island, this place? And you know what is most amazing? You can change everything in every moment!🙆🏻‍♀️ . . Dropping down the illusion is the most liberating state. It’s like coming back home. This place where you’re naked. You stop feeding a ghost. A huge amount of light will come back to your life and ... you can spend it on your dreams! And that’s beautiful! We are growing by doing mistakes! Have a beautiful journey, beautiful souls ✨🔥 . . pic by the most talented photographer that I ever meet @michal_zajaczkowski eternal gratitude for this beautiful shots 🙏🏼💜 . #illusion #comingbackhome #home #Yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogalove #yogalife #yogainspiration #yogagirl #yogachallenge #yogaeverywhere #yogaeveryday #yogateacher #yogapractice #yogajourney #yogadaily #yogafit #yogagram #yogaaddict #yogafun #yogalover #yogaflow #YogaForLife #yogalifestyle #yogaphotography #yogatime #wildwomansisterhood #staywildmoonchild #lightnessofbeing #starseeds
💪🏻TAKING SELF RESPONSIBILITY💪🏻 One of the key pillars to success. . Accepting full responsibility for the way you respond to challenges is empowering. It gives you the opportunity to take control, rather than waiting to be saved – or looking to blame 😉 . For example: your financial success isn’t the responsibility of : - your parents - your employer - your partner - your accountant - your coach - (insert other) If you think it’s someone else’s fault, all you can do is wait for them to change. . 👉🏼 Don’t absent yourself from your own power, decisions and ability to take action 👈🏼

Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you - sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, then you would live forever (Lauren Oliver) ______ #travelwithme #travelworld #travelspirit #netherlands #dutchmountains #time #space #inlovewithchaos #littlemiracles #lightnessofbeing #spaceoflove #bnw #bw #noir #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #love_noir #freespace #instatravel #vscotravel #vsco_bnw #vsco_bw #vsco_light #vsco

Laughter. . . Learning to laugh at pain as much as pleasure is no easy task. I have been so angry before that I begin laughing. I believe it is a defense mechanism to break up the density of anger. It is the only force that I know that is strong enough to shatter the pressure-filled encasing I feel when angry. . . I have also been so filled with sadness that I sob uncontrollably until I have a fleeting thought of absurdity that I gasp. And then I laugh. . . But joy, that is a feeling I am very much in love with. It has been rather distant lately. I have been spinning the emotions wheel and funneling through each one, even if only for a few moments. It is an all-you-can-eat buffet of feelings, this being human. Ha! I am honestly in awe of my inability to "stay" in any one state of mind. It has become more of a bullet train ride, yet, I do find my equilibrium and call myself back to grace. . . . Why do we believe we must hide how we are feeling? That some emotions are less deserving than others? I am over this old paradigm. It is messy being human, and it gets messier the more authentic and vulnerable you get. I have been known to smile lots. I have also been known to have lots of emotions. . . Just for today I am working on loving myself through all of the changes, frustrations, unanswered questions, disappointments and unmet expectations. Just for today I will throw back my head and laugh. Just for today I will remind myself that everything passes. Just for today. . .

love for the lightness left when we’ve let loosen... let loosen our resistance to release, let loosen the questioning of our intuition as it learns to speak above a whisper, the grip to know, the analysis of enough-ness, the pressures to do and do more, the inclination to analyze instead of intuit, the fear to feel deeply, the permission to grieve fully, the restraint to really rest, and to rest assured that all is unfolding in our highest good... the lightness left when we’ve let loosen the desire for that life that wishes to live through us, the one that is actually ours to live. Love for the sighs that sweep through as we appreciate the nuances that make up that life’s magnificence. The relief we feel when we choose the powerful position of trust — trusting that all of our experiences are happening for us. Surrendering is a beautifully brave act. Surrendering makes space, and how I love a sense of space. This trip has been a whole lot of that. . . . . . . . #maui #redsandbeach #redsandbeachmaui #surrender #release #letgo #letlove #lightnessofbeing #rest #reset #recharge #starseed

Find and follow the things that move you, heart and soul. Life is too short for anything else. And you were made for lightness of being.
