Yoga is 👏🏼not👏🏼 a self-improvement project.
Fancy poses are not the end goal. Our practice is a time where we can be mindful.
To be mindful simply means being where we are, exactly as we are, in the most minimal and uncomplicated way.
Mindfulness is not a state of mind we are trying to achieve, but rather an ability to host all states – whether they are joyful, restless, anxious or apathetic.
Yin is where we have time to integrate all the aspects of our fragmented selves – the undigested experiences, the tight places of our body, and the dark corners of our heart.
While we may aspire towards a calmer mind and a more flexible body, we cannot grow these ambitions if we don’t start where we are and take time to honor each part of ourselves which needs care and attention.
In my upcoming 6-day Silent Yoga Retreat this April, we will explore this and more in-depth. If you want to delve into a deeper practice of mindfulness, today is the final day to receive 10% OFF tuition prices + 1 year free access to Nosco Online! 🙏🏼 Link in profile!

Le luci e le ombre di una storia millenaria si rincorrono - ripetutamente - nel mostrarsi in mezzo a quelle colonne maestose in cerca di spiragli sparpagliati, per giungere - in modi diversi - a generare incanti e fantasie ai viandanti del mondo !

P.S. This father and son, are not poor or homeless. They "are made" poor and homeless, intentionally, by israel's 13 year long seige and constant bombardment and destruction of the Strip's economy, along with refusal to let construction material in, .
by Mahmoud Abbas's embargos, including fuel, imposed on the 2 million residents of this biggest open air prison on the planet,
by Egypt's U.S. backed coup dictator's enforcement of the siege from the other side of the strip, .
by the U.S. government's cutting of UNRWA funding and vetoes of the UN resolutions, which are aimed at relieving pressure from this people's shoulders, .
and worse than all, by the betraying #silence and ignorance of the governments and billions of people of amost every country in this brutal world, except a handfull. .
This geocidal catastrophe, is human made AND the #freedom fighters of this Strip of land, where 90% of the population are refugees of the 1948 occupation of their ancestral land, are simply fighting the occupiers and are the only party not at fault. #savegaza#savegazachildren

Me gano el atardecer ... pero al menos tengo la tranquilidad que te brindan las olas... Disfrutando pequeños momentos inesperados.. lo mejor
Hoy en deje secuestrar 😅😎 #silence#noselocuentesanadie#working
Darkness is the other side of light, just like sound is the other side of silence. Every sound emanates from silence, and every light comes out of darkness. Through the darkness is how we come to the light. #kabbalah#meditation#darkness#silence

It’s always the right time to do the right thing .
(Polska wersja tego i poprzedniego wpisu pojawi się na dniach w komentarzach)
Not so long ago under a post on my FB, my colleague wrote: “you have great life, no worries, you don’t know what paying debts is, how to keep family...”. So here is my #great#life without worries. My #family , many #doctors , #physiotherapists and I work really hard to bring me back to life, to be able to work, to have a family one day.
It’s just a little reminder that #silence is sometimes better than few words too many. Especially to a person who’s going through quite a lot.
Anyway I’m not a person who gets depressed easily, so since half of my head is shaved I had to find a nice haircut. I decided to Britney Spears in her crazy time 🤣 I believe my hairdresser @gnatyshyn_wroclaw will accept the challenge and after shaving the rest Patrycja will find me a nice cut before we comeback to my long, barbie hair 😅
My #surgery went well. No spectacular changes for now, but #shunt is #programmable so maybe I just simply need different settings. For now we wait until my body adjusts to new situation.
Unfortunately #abdominal#pain came back, sometimes with radiation to right shoulder. Again we wait few days, if the pain persists Doctor will change ending of the #shunt tube to #pleura ( #lung ) and we’ll see how it works. .
I’ve met spinal surgeon here, but seems he doesn’t understand the issue, YET! He wants to straighten my head and extend the #spinalfusion 5 levels more (what we did multiple time without long term improvement), so my whole neck and upper back would be fully fused. With my neurosurgeon we agreed we have to find reason of bending and why I experience so many symptoms being straight before any further spine surgery. .
Anyway, is here anyone who knows how to nicely #tie / #knot the #shawl on the head? 😜 #zebrastrong#vpshunt#bully#staypositive#smile#bold#eds#ehlersdanlossyndrome
