HAVE FAITH IN GOODNESS // as many of us embark on our holiday festivities today & tomorrow, may we put down any momentary swords calling to us to remember the power of love: true strength comes not in perfection rather in the embrace of our imperfections. . . . And as we finish up our challenge, embrace yours!

It's been such a fun journey, thank you SO much to those who jumped right in to play with us, all new on the scene.

BALANCE YOURSELF // life is a balance of holding on, letting go & knowing when to choose which of the two. - May your weekend be merrily balanced & light! Hold onto the ones you love, let go of the nonsense & breathe through the rest... . . . Winter-break Pro Tip 💫 if you can't balance like Jess 👆, ask someone else to drive! _ ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @salyogi @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns ⓓⓐⓨ ⓔⓛⓔⓥⓔⓝ #namastaystressfree

BALANCE YOURSELF // some days you eat salads & go to the gym, some days you eat cupcakes & refuse to put on pants ↪ the trick is learning to balance these days and call it a life! . . . You don't need to always be getting stuff done, you don't need to always be the nicest, kindest person. Sometimes it's not only OK but actually perfectly necessary to shut down, kick back & choose rest instead of movement, staying away instead of namaste. The choice is the key to peace ↪ making & owning whatever choice you make! _ ⓓⓐⓨ ⓔⓛⓔⓥⓔⓝ #namastaystressfree ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @salyogi @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns

au·then·tic /ôˈTHen(t)ik/ adjective ↪ of undisputed origin; genuine _ EXPRESS YOUR AUTHENTIC SELF // what is your undisputed origin? what footsteps have you walked to get here? where have you been? when did it all start? how does this practice piece it all together into the most "perfectly imperfect" you, as our beauty queen @min@mindbodyspiritinbalance so gracefully puts it? . . . Today we explore our favorites as we express ourselves! What's your favorite pose / practice / part of yoga?! The options here are truly endless! . . . If you haven't noticed yet, freeing stress is less about becoming perfect & far more about embracing imperfect. Today let us see beneath our beautiful to the raw, pure diamond we are!

OPEN ⬆ UP // 🙃 because that's how we stay peaceful in the moment ↪ openly adjusting to whatever it offers us! - This week, two weeks before website launch, it became blatantly clear that my Microsoft Surface computer wouldn't get us to launch with the quality of videos I felt you all deserve. After rendering the first few, it started randomly slowing down, blacking out & sometimes wouldn't even turn on! . what . to . do . Breathe. Google the best computers for video editing & why. Can't afford the one you need?! Find someone who already did but doesn't need it: 👋 hello eBay, Craig & your list. Now ↪ Make. It. Happen. . . . Problem solved ✔ . . . No road is devoid of bumps for long. Life never really will be easier for one person than another because we all live in the same world under the same laws of nature. We all start on different roads & in different towns and it will always take me longer to get to Australia from here in New Jersey than someone in China, but it doesn't mean I can't get there with the right perspective behind my eyes. If I lose it ↪ adjust again! . . . When life hands you lemons, you can either squeeze them in your eyes or make lemonade ↪ the choice is always yours! 🍋 - ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns ⓓⓐⓨ ⓝⓘⓝⓔ #namastaystressfree

OPEN ⬆ UP // show me all the parts of you that you do not love so I know where to begin . . . 😌💖 tomorrow is the day everything turns ubsıpǝ poʍu as we start to open ⬆ up ⬆ to the moment with every little piece of ourselves that's ready! This practice has a magical way of connecting our spirits & our bodies ↪ and as we learn to open upwards with the physical, it's amazing how we learn to open up to all parts of ourselves, even the ones we hide the most! . . . Yoga's called a practice because it's supposed to take time to "get" its deep philosophies & understanding, so be gentle with yourself here, especially if this is the start of your upside-down journey! 🤸 For some of us inverting will mean inverting our whole bodies on our shoulders, heads, forearms or hands, while for others half-inversions like a bridge, forward fold, down-dog, puppy, dolphin or even rabbit pose serve us well & fine! All-in-all, do you bro... - ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @salyogi @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns ⓓⓐⓨ ⓝⓘⓝⓔ #namastaystressfree

CREATE SPACE TO BREATHE // we need to create space... space to breathe... space to collaborate... we need to do more than survive . . . It's our responsibility to manage our space and our breath, what we add on top of that to be responsible for is on us. By focusing on creating space, on breathing & exploring ways we do so at ease, we set the foundations to collaborate ↪ to explore the potential of unity that far outweighs our individual survival. . . . Our beautiful Julie creates space in firelog, opening the hips with her arms back to expose the diaphragm & give the lungs adequate room to fill up. She's 👆 such a bright light in this world who I am personally SO grateful is part of this adventure. Her inner fire tunes to the now with such understanding & love; the space she creates is great, her knowledge of the body & its energy phenomenal with a disciplined spirit that's unparalleled. Can't wait for the site to launch and you all to get to know her even better! 🙌😌 - ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns ⓓⓐⓨ ⓔⓘⓖⓗⓣ #namastaystressfree

CREATE SPACE TO BREATHE // ... the anchor won't make the storm go away, but it will hold you steady while it passes . . . 👆 because storms release built up tension that needs to be released, that craves liberation. ⚡☔☁ Running from the gray inside compares to asking a harmless cloud to turn into a hurricane - breathing through the gray teaches patience, understanding & perspective - the choice is always yours to make! . . . If it's breath, maybe our friends can help... - ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow @pocketchangedesigns ⓓⓐⓨ ⓔⓘⓖⓗⓣ #namastaystressfree
