Hello, Dear Heart.  This is just a quick reminder that you can do less, even as you’re do-ing.  You can soften your shoulders away from your ears as you brush your teeth.  You can eat your meals a little slower, with a little more pleasure.  You can pursue your dreams in an easy-going, light-hearted way.  You can show up to work, even when your tank is low, and release resistance around fatigue.  You can grieve, and grieve, and grieve, and still smile softly at how sweet it is when the 7 p.m. sun lights up your skin.  Relax your bones.  Relax your heart, and your jaw, and your pelvis.  Do less, even as you do.  You got this.  You so got this.  #youdogotthis #doless #doing #effort #effortless #nonresistance #grief #surrender #acceptance #soften #shhh #relaxed #stillness #mindfulness #meditation #selflove #selfcare #spiritualpath #awakening #expansion #awareness

Kia Ora 🌈 tribe!  This is your daily reminder to turn inward.  Gently slow your breath, focusing just above the head - your crown chakra.  Be here. With your breath. With your body. In your space. In your environment. In THIS moment.  Breathe.  Allow for silence.  Allow for stillness.  Breathe. 🙏🏽💜🙏🏽🔮🙏🏽🌌 🙏🏽
Friendly reminder that savasana / stillness is the most important part of your practice. I’d be happy if you showed up and did this the entire practice. Stillness is where where the real magic happens. You can find it anywhere, at any time; not just when you show up to a class.  Be still and know.💚 ✨☀️✨ SN: Blanche [the “yoga dog”] is always here & ready for savasana.  Thank you to everyone who showed up for themselves & each other tonight at Libby Hill. It was a beautiful night.  See you soon! . . . . #onedropyoga #stillness #yoga #rva #getoutside #sunset #libbyhillpark #teacherlife #yogalife #optoutside #community #rvayoga #meditation #savasana #summer
Life, like hockey, happens fast. Hockey, like life, requires single-minded focus and intense concentration in order to read a situation, make a quick decision and take immediate action. My mind races nonstop and my vivid imagination seldom slows. Meditation helps me tame the mind for sharper focus, enhancing my ability to calmly make the best decisions and take appropriate action - on and off the ice. Start with five minutes a day. Commit to it and watch your play - and life - become more focused, peaceful and poised. . . . #veganhockeyplayer #mondaymotivation #motivationmonday #meditation #focus #stillness #calm #poise #peace #peaceful #inspiration #positivevibes #breathe #monday #hockey #hockeylife #veganathlete #dairyfreeathlete #plantpoweredathlete #plantbasedathlete #yogi #ccmhockey
Creating your sacred space. Life can be overwhelming at times, the daily commute, the stress of being put in an environment that isn’t conducive to your truth. It can sometimes be confusing. That’s why our perception of a place, time, situation can be so powerful. When I am feeling overwhelmed I like to take a moment to close my eyes and see my sacred space, normally by the ocean but it can be anything, being on the couch at home, hugging a loved one or picturing a beautiful wetland like this above. By doing this our brain sends a calming sensation throughout our body allowing us to not only perceive the present in a more open and loving way but also gives us the clarity we need to tackle the situation ahead! Just close your eyes, feel the emotion take yourself to a calming place and breathe deep.  For more inspiration on living a balanced life subscribe to my mailing list ! Link is on my website above 🙏🏼
“The most yielding thing in the world  Will overcome the most rigid The most empty thing in the world  Will overcome the most full From this comes a lesson Stillness benefits more than action Silence benefits more than words Rare indeed are those who are still  Rare indeed are those who are silent  And so I say, Rare indeed are those Who obtain the bounty of this world” - Tao Te Ching . . . . #taoteching #daodejing #verse43 #stillness #wisdom #truth #mymeditation #blmmustang #bethankfuleveryday #lovethislife #onthebackofamustang #lifebetweentheears #horsesofinstagram

A relationship with a true master or guru is not an easy one, but every day it becomes sweeter and more beautiful as your heart and mind open up to truth. I remember when I met my master, Papaji, there was also some fear coming up inside me, but I knew it was a healthy kind of fear.  There is always a part of the mind that wants to tame people or win them over so they don’t threaten you. You play to be nice, sexy, clever or entertaining. You try everything to be loved and accepted. We are both attracted to and intimidated by the sense of 'other' but the master is not an 'other', he is the pure reflection of one’s own real being. He doesn’t allow any room for your mind-play. Suddenly, in his presence, you feel like you are the ‘other’—a stranger to what is natural and true. The shallowness of ego comes up involuntarily and you will feel out of your depth. In that moment, the pain of not being who you truly are becomes unbearable.  Now the old tricks, the old currency doesn't work here.  It is like having a pocketful of Euros in the middle of the Sahara desert. There is no value for it here and something feels deeply uncomfortable.  This, in fact, is the greatness of the real master.  A defining moment: You must either run away with your loot of fool’s gold or choose freedom.  A true seeker feels that deep energetic discomfort within, but recognises it to be a great opportunity, a chance for freedom from the tyranny of the false. Though they may be trembling in their socks, they say ‘yes’ with trust and courage and enter the master’s presence and grace.  There is nothing to be afraid of really. In fact, the master is not the cause of your discomfort. Such presence only exposes the disharmonies of the ego and invites the seeker to choose liberation. ~ Mooji 💖
How will you be present this week? Practice being still in a world that pulls us in so many directions. It’s challenging when you first begin but the benefits are worth the effort. . . . . #repost @eckharttolle #bepresent #meditation #presence #eckharttolle #inspiration #quotes #besimplyinspirational #lanechangers #mindfulness #presentmomentreminder #mindful #selfreflection #be #stillness #awareness #healthandwellness #healthcoach #peaceful #selfcare #innercalm #eckharttollequotes #wisdom
A Poet & A Gentleman™️ Though you might conquer in battle A thousand times a thousand men, You're the greatest battle-winner If you conquer just one - yourself. - Anonymous  #apoetandagentleman
▫️ “And what is true for human beings is true for every living thing: all organisms require alternating periods of growth and equilibrium. Any person or system exposed to ceaseless novelty and change risks falling into chaos; but one that is too rigid or static ceases to grow and eventually dies.  This never-ending dance between change and stability is like the anchor and the waves” - Esther Perel . Change + stability / discipline + freedom ~ the true tango in life. . . This is the longest I’ve stayed at the one address in almost 10 years. There are times I feel anchored by my situation and other moments I feel grateful with the abundance that a solid foundation can bring. . . There are days I long for the freedom wave I’ve ridden before, no ties, consistently new landscapes. Novelty was a daily blessing. Conversely, I have had the strength and energy to grow precisely because of my solid base. . . There’s a similar sentiment with a yoga/ meditation/ movement practice, whereby the commitment can feel heavy or weighted down.  There arises a point however, where the discipline affords an alignment with flow and a feeling of liberation (mukanday) through equipoise, a balance of forces. . I think Winter can challenge our sense of static, at least it does for me. I’m dreaming of change whilst attempting to also nourish in the stillness.  How are others feeling? . . 📷Bri Horne for @gertrudestreetyogastudio . . . . . . . . . . #estherperel #winter #change #stillness #melbourneyoga #nourish #healing #practiceandalliscoming #equilibrium #equipoise #melbourneyogastudio #melbournelovesyoga #freedom #discipline #open #skandasana #liberate #mukanday #dailypractice #growth #lessons #instaquote #yogaphotography #quotesofinstagram #asanaphotography #asana #yogateacher #meditationteacher #breathe #selfcare
You don't have to hammer your body with intensity everyday! Once a week in the @psychedelicgypsyfitness programming you will see movement therapy in place of conditioning. Why? To connect with your body through flow and play while giving yourself a mental/physical break. This change up is so essential but we get caught up in our little box of 'how training should be/look/feel.' Make space for flow and play. Watch your body and mind transform. 👑 👑 👑 Movements: Hip 90/90 Crab walk  Forward/backward roll Straddle ups Wurly birds  Lunge to handstand  #thewayofthegypsy #psychedelicgyspyfitness #gypsyqueen #flow #play #movement #stillness #fitness #adventure #travel #food #bepsychedelic
