yoga sky

Have you ever cried like a baby during yoga? Yeah, me neither. But today my soul was moved in a way I’ve not felt before. It was in this very studio with the sun breaking through the clouds just long enough to peer beyond shut eyelids into my soul. 

 
The Buddhist monks were chanting in the background soundtrack & I felt their words for compassion that have guided me through the high, turbulent waves of life only to be lost during a playful, loving moment in the rough salty blue ocean. A time when I could let go. Om mani padme hum. My treasured prayer wheel that found me in a small Buddhist boutique tucked quietly amidst the hurried NYC. It was the silver I wore around my neck every day of my life that stood for inner compassion & peace towards mankind that I would spin if I accidentally (or purposely) smashed a spider. It rode with me through messes in life and carried me to the other side. It followed me into a place of love then slipped through our fingers & toes in the waves to find another person in need of guidance. To whomever has found it, I know you’re living with peace in your eyes, love in your heart & compassion in your soul.

This is just after sunrise on High Rock Lake. Edited with the kelvin filter on Instagram and type via WordSwag. The sunrise was downright stunning in it’s original state. I’ve been using some of my photographs in conjunction with these sayings that I truly believe in and am just now starting to comprehend as truths. It’s taken me a long time to get from hearing to listening to believing and applying.

I originally used this as an image for Monday’s yoga line-up at Santosha Yoga. This is a studio I’ve been practicing with for over 7 year. The teacher is amazing & I view her as a personal guru, I’m for-realsies on this. I love listening to her words & felt this since day one. Don’t worry, I’m not falling down the hole of hero worship because I know she has her flaws. But an inspiration to me? A genuine yoga bad-ass? Yes indeed!

the crazy I see in me is the crazy I see in you

namaste… 🙂  This is the yoga studio I get to practice in and I am in love! It’s fall so our teacher is bringing her plants into the warmth of the studio. I’m a morning-yoga kind of person so the sun hits them just right for that golden glow.

The full moon is still approaching. This time we were talking about gathering creativity & beauty. Since I didn’t get a picture while I was upside down on the yoga wall that I talked about last time I took one today.


This is pretty much what it would have looked like minus the props. Friday morning is yin yoga, a practice more for focus and meditation. I think of this class as an internal massage. It stretches out my mind, body and my heart!
