Just unlocked my full locust (Poorna Salabhasana) pose a few days ago! I think it’s such a cool one because it totally feels like you’re defying gravity 🤩

“Wherever you are, be all there” -Jim Elliot
A dear, dear friend of mine who I haven’t talked to in forever sent me this, out of the blue, and it was the first thing I read this morning. He reminded me; I am here.
I just got my hair cut by a local woman who basically only knew how to say, “where are you from” in English. Understanding the majority of her other words in Spanish (such as “are you traveling alone” or “how long are you staying”), I simply sat in a battered plastic chair and entrusted in her hand that held the scissors. As I stared into the mirror that rested against the outside of her house, I felt at peace; Like, whether or not she understood how I envisioned the hair cut, I would still be beautiful. Even after watching more than half of the amount of hair I envisioned fall to the floor, I trusted her. I respected her. Few spoken words. Woman to woman connection. When she was done, she gestured a braiding motion with my hair and mumbled a question in her sweet accent. I smiled because here we were- two women from different cultures, appreciating the beauty of femininity. She didn’t have to do any more than cut, but her eyes twinkled as she played with my golden locks. We are all so innately beautiful. Release the need to control every aspect of your life and feel free in the vibrancy of simplicity💗
"Encourage yourself to do something what you think impossible, it definitely helps you for better performance!" .
It is important to encourage ourselves what we think, "how I can do this, it's impossible for me, I can't think to do this, I have never tried this!!" Just try and see the result!! Once my Guruji said, "Without trying how can you take decision about that!! Just give a try is it happening or not!!"
For standing splits, I was always thinking, it's impossible for me then once I had that pose and my daughter said, try , you can do this and what? I did it!!🤩😁
So let's play with SPLITS WITH SUPER SOLDIER FOR

I was looking at this photo sitting here critiquing all the ways I could have tried to open my chest more, straightened my spine a little more, and straightened my leg a little more.. then I realized. What the hell. This is all part of the journey, every single asana isn’t going to be perfectly straight and aligned. Pushing my body past the point of its comfortability to get a better shot isn’t what it’s about. It’s about loving the journey, loving ourselves for where we are and not judging ourselves. The fact that yoga translates directly to our lives is so beautiful. Just as we practice to love and honor the journey no matter how hard, we must do the same in life. Days aren’t going to all be easy, life isn’t always going to be smooth sailing, and some days we may barely make it out of bed, but loving ourselves, not criticizing ourselves, and seeing the beauty in the journey is the most important part. Surrender to that. Surrender to the journey.
I have the amazing opportunity to begin teaching yoga at Prairie Moon yoga studio in rathdrum starting the 26th. I'll be teaching a slowflow evening class every Tuesday and Thursday night from 5:30-6:45 and the first class is free! Please shoot me a message with any questions you have. I can't wait to see you in class!

I spent yesterday practicing handstands, and today I’m experiencing a total rush of creative ideas. I don’t usually practice inversions for extended periods of time, so I figured there must be a connection between the inversions and the creative rush. Turns out there is!! 🙃 The physical act of elevating our hearts (intuitive brains) above our heads (rational, intellectual mind) has a profound psychological effect, and the result can be a renewal of creative energy! 💥⚡️💥⚡️💥 When was the last time you let your intuitive brain take precedence over your rational mind? Even a simple restorative pose like “legs up a wall” for 5 minutes a day can set you on the path toward listening to your heart as much as you listen to your head (and maybe more!) 🙃💜🙌🏻 Happy turn-your-world-upside-down-and-see-it-in-a-new-way day! 🎉(But don’t stop after just today! Some yogis recommend turning upside down for at least 25 breaths every day, unless you are menstruating or pregnant. I’ll try that out and let you know how it goes!)

. This is a snippet of my pincha practice yesterday. Swipe for video. You’ll see how hard I tried to lift my head to my feet, and there was very little lift despite my big effort 😅

We want to help pioneer a new breed of soulful fashion, where people stop and think about how and under what conditions their clothes were made. Who were the farmers that grew the cotton? Who were the factory workers that made the yarn and stitched the clothes? What are their stories and backgrounds? Brands wearing a tag of conscious fashion should tell that story with pride and full transparency of supply chains. For chaYkra, that means telling the story of the Chetna Organic co-operative in India which offers farmers a business stake in the sale of the cotton they grow. We also specifically seek out fair trade mills and factories to work with that uphold our values of fairness and care. From seed to cloth to product, let's be proud of the story our clothes tell.
