“She's mad, but she's magic. There's no lie in her fire.“
Every once in a while I get asked how I started Yoga. Or what brought me to Yoga.
And it is nice to share that story, I guess like many of us reach to it because of an injury. Mine was a divorce, so yeah an injury of the heart.
However I feel my heart racing with enthusiasm thinking more of when Yoga started in me. That day I learned the Why? and Who? Why I was living the way I was living and Who was living it.
I remember a year back when we first opened Sanctuary Hill. Ram was teaching our first class and (truth be told) we were hit by a jolt when class numbers where super quiet. A punch to expectations!
That time during construction and opening was definitely stressful. Hello to sleeplessness and self-doubt and questions like "should we really do this?". Yep, thats what misalignment feels like to me when my head and my heart's direction have unfriended each other.
Yet again, Yoga happens to me every day. My day affirmation centred around "simply cruise into a stop". I consciously decided to take my foot off the accelerator, and off the brakes. And Cruise to a stop.
Because sometimes you are in a ride, that you willingly took, and the circumstances are yet not clear and the mental clutter is too much. Cruise to a stop.
The mind will eventually stop its wonderful wondering and make its journey back to the heart. And thats where the Why and the Who are alive.

✨💫No es mejor nuestra energía que la del otro, simplemente es distinta, y busca energías afines. No te lo tomes personal, es vibracional. Si sientes que te causa esfuerzo, no es. Las vibraciones afines fluyen, las vibraciones discordantes causan esfuerzo y desgano, y nos generan grandes fugas energéticas. Las energías afines, nos energizan y fluyen sin esfuerzo en una energía de amor.✨💫 Our energy is not better than that of the other, it is simply different, and it looks for related energies. Do not take it personally, it's vibrational. If you feel that it causes you effort, it is not. The affine vibrations flow, the discordant vibrations cause effort and reluctance, and generate great energy leaks. The related energies, energize us and flow effortlessly in an energy of love.✨💫 #adhomukhasvanasana #yogaeverywhere #yogavibes #yogaasana #yogafam #yogastyle #yogagram #yogalover #yogaaddict #yogachallenge #yogaclass #yogalife #yogalive #yogagirls #yogaposes #yogadaily #yogajourney #yogafollow #yogafitness #yogafit #yogatime #yogateacherlife #yogainspiration #yogateach #yoga #doyoga #yoganature #myyoga #loveyoga #instayoga
Es necesario de vez en cuando solo observarse... reconocerse y reconocer lo valioso qué hay en ti ... encontrarnos con ese lado que nos gusta y también el que no nos gusta tanto de nosotros ... ✨ ✨

Happiness is a direction, not a place.
I think November is the best time to spend time with yourself and ask yourself all the important questions: what is important and what not? Am I forcing too much onto myself and do I need to prioritize? It’s the month of mindfulness. I definitely need to do this. My body has been telling me to slow down for weeks in form of frequent reoccurring migraines, so I will. Listen to your body, take this bad weather thing as a chance to be on your own, go deeper and look whether your body might be telling you something too. Slow down, reflect, be mindful. And especially now, when energy might be low, don’t let other people drain you emotionally.
