I used to think that love was something outside of me. I don’t think I intellectualised it like that, however I searched for it externally - from mum, dad, brothers, friends etc.. if I got it, then I was good enough.. if I didn’t get it, then there was something wrong with me. The problem was if I had a thought running that I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t loved, I’d find proof to validate my story. I wouldn’t see the love that was all around, I couldn’t see it, because my mind told me otherwise. So no mater how many people showed they loved me, I couldn’t feel it, because I wasn’t loving me. The more I step into a place of loving myself unconditionally, the more love I feel and see everywhere. It’s in our nature to love. We are love. It’s only the mind that would tell us otherwise. So on this day that’s all about aroha, notice how good it it feels to celebrate love - to feel it - without missing the most important player...

Yeah, I always practice yoga on the beach, in a thin dress, hair out, no mat, sinking into the sand... 😬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reminder: This is a pretty picture of a physical posture on a beach. Not a bad thing, but it’s also not yoga. In this weird and (if used right) wonderful world of sharing and social media, please remember that. Your yoga practice is about you and where your at right now. It’s about getting aware and turning in. It’s not about how it looks, or whether you do standing splits on the beach or not. You do you ataahua 💫✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #asana #yoga #keepitlight ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This morning I’d hit a wall in my Mysore practice and was preparing to stop. My teacher came over and told me to keep going. I quickly launched into all of the stories of why I was stopping - sore, tired etc.. etc.. he looked at me and said “I think you should stop talking now”, he then continued to say keep going with your practice just modify it to make it work for you today. but keep going. “I think you should stop talking now”... 👀👀👀 MIND BLOWN 💥💥💥 How often do I over talk, over justify, over explain things to gain others permission/approval of my behaviour/story. And how much does that actually seperate me from me in that moment. Instead, when I notice myself getting into story with others, how would it be to zip it, connect to my breath, and simply allow myself to feel what I’m feeling without the need to externalise it or have others approve of my story/behaviour. Grateful to my teacher and this practice for waking me up 🙏💡 PS I went on with a slightly modified practice and surprise, surprise, felt better for it. PPS perhaps a little Ironic that I describe my learnings of talking less with a long post... alright, I’ll shhh now.. 😬🤫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 by the amazing @alicevanschaik @lululemonakl #lululemon #ashtanga #yoga #asana #yogalessons #auckland #sunset #theyogaconnectionnz

Today I celebrate over coming fear✨ 6 months ago the thought of doing drop backs on my own terrified me and seemed impossible. Today they fill me with joy and bring me straight to this moment. I love experiencing what is possible on all levels (physical, mental, emotional) with a daily practice 💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yoga #practice #asana #backbend #lululemon #ashtanga

Minds. They are complex. They judge. They compare. They create fictional movies - stories of past or future, that take us away from reality. From this moment. From peace. Bodies. They are simple. They breathe. They sleep. They move. They tell us exactly what they need, if we are open to listening. Yet so often we say that our bodies are the problem. That our body is what’s letting us down because it’s too fat, too slim, too weak, too tired, not attractive enough etc.. etc.. Yet in reality, isn’t it the stories created BY our minds ABOUT our bodies, that is the problem? Without these stories, without comparison, wouldn’t our bodies be perfect just as they are?? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @clairobscur_photography #yoga #asana #bodylove
