When you read your boi Ganesh's creation story and literally an obstacle was removed from him before he became a "remover of obstacles: . mother and son are chilling at home➡ Father knocks on the door➡ Son does not believe that this lowly person is his father➡ Father gets angry, and chops off son's head➡Mother starts crying and begs father to retrieve the head➡ father is too lazy to hike up the Himalayas to find it because he "hit a homerun"➡ Father chops off the head of the nearest elephant and attaches it to his son's body➡ Sons Consciousness transfers into elephant head🤔 . #Hinduism #ganesh #ganesha #creation #obstacles #om #yoga #story #devotion #dramedy #insight #homerun #shiva #consciousness

Nothing beats a walk in the snow as it is snowing. Especially after sweating in the sauna. I stood outside in nothing but my towel, watching snow melt on my skin as steam rose from my body. Grateful of these temperature extremes. Grateful of my daily practice. #sauna #yoga #gratitude #love #play #sweat #snow #cleansing #breathe #meditation #hydration

The nervous system reacts with fury, thousands of nerves sending warning shots past your head. The breath, used in a conscious deep manner, subsides the nerves. Breathing deep, slowly I walk. I am safe. I am warm because I acknowledge the cold. I am the cold, I am cold. I am filled with heat by the breath. My nervous system relaxed. These 2 forces interacting in a dance of opposites, interacting, fusing, breaking apart. I enjoy the snow as it allows me to practice #santosha. Contentment. #pranayama #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeveryday #igy#igyogi> #igyogi #igyoga #gratitude #love #deeplistening #daily practice #practice #meditation #zen #life #bre#breathingeverydamnday #breath #igyogafam #insight #njyoga #njyogis #snowga #follow #walkwithme #walking #contentment

I view props as an extension of my body, my life. When I am deep into my asana practice I feel no shame using them. To me, props are like legos: I could spend hours playing with them, figuring out 100 ways to use each piece. If you ever plop your mat next to mine in a yoga class, I will have AT LEAST 1 or 2 of each available yoga prop next to me. ( don't worry, you can use them if I dont need them😇). Play with me!🤸🏻 Come the new year, I hope to see you subscribe to us at @namastayinthenow as we launch our website. Come play with myself and props! Check out my friends too!

DAY 10 #namastaystressfree //express your authentic self\\ . Since I was a kid I would always love popping up into wheel pose. It was always easily accessible to me. As I rebuild my arm strength, post-injury, I look forward into popping up into it again. My ego is in full agreement with my divine inner self with the joy I feel in this pose, arms fully extended or not. Patience and persistance is key. .

ANNOUNCING ⓓⓐⓨ ⓣⓔⓝ #namastaystressfree 🙌INSTACHALLENGE🙌 //Express your authentic self\\ . I stare into the eyes of this puppy as she stares back into mine. I see a friend, playmate, god, a divine expression of play in a smaller form. I see myself. Play is a philosophy, a practice and a science I live my life by. It is the safe, playful platonic touch that connects mammals of all shapes and sizes. I roll around with the divine as it jumps on me and licks my nose. a space of trust fulfilled by "rough gentleness". I am grateful that my inner child was nurtured enough to never die. It is my authentic self. . TOMORROW: What pose is YOU? What pose helps you express yourself? Your most favorite pose that is you. Find out how my friends and i express ourselves. We look forward to seeing you 🙏🏻 . ⓗⓞⓢⓣⓢ @brittanyannyoga @linzyoga @everupwardyoga @jessicaj270 @julie.bottini @karenkrewson @playfuly0g1 @salyogi @mindbodyspiritinbalance ⓢⓟⓞⓝⓢⓞⓡⓢ @namastayinthenow  @pocketchangedesigns #instachallenge #yog#yog#yogachallenge #stressfree #holidays #yogalove #yogalife #play #puppies #heartfeltholidays #12daysofyoga #holidayyogajoy #yogagram #igyoga #igyogafam #igy#igyogachallenge> #igyogachallenge #omies #zenlife #yogachallenge #yogainspiration #yogaeveryday#yogaeverydamnday #yoginspiration #god #love #selflove #authentic #igyogis #yoga
