  • Famous words of @nik_gberry “common, it’s not as hard as it looks”

So obviously I had to see him give it a go (swipe right). Let’s just say I was right all along 🙃

  • While today, modern transnational yoga is practiced predominantly by women, historically we know that this was not always so. Perhaps one of the starkest contrasts between modern and premodern yogas is the gender divide among practitioners—especially for Indian ascetic traditions. ⁣
⁣
What is the role historically of female ascetics? Were there equal opportunities for women to become renunciates? Adepts of yoga? Although the practice of asceticism and Haṭha Yoga in premodern India was predominantly a male-dominated discipline, there are important exceptions in the visual and textual records of female practitioners, such as the exquisite painting above from Rajasthan (c. 1730-40). ⁣
⁣
And what is the reality today for sādhvīs (female ascetics) who practice yoga in contemporary India? How are they viewed with the larger ascetic community? ⁣
⁣
This is one of the important and fascinating topics we will be exploring in the upcoming online course, “YS 103: Yoga and Hindu Asceticism, From Past to Present” with Dr. Daniela Bevilacqua of the SOAS Haṭha Yoga Project.⁣
⁣
🐦EARLY BIRD SPECIAL of 20% off the tuition ends TONIGHT, AUG 18 @ 11:59pm PST (California time). First class begins Aug 26!⁣

  • Jumping on a short challenge combining running ams yoga! #runnersloveyogalegs19 day 1. Is chair twist or revolved chair, chair is basically a squat so it strengthens the glutes, throw in a twist to give the spine some love. My nervous system and right hip is a bit delicate at the moment for some reason but it feels ok to run as long as I keep it short and without too many hills, you can't avoid hills round here though and I love running by the sea.
It is sometimes assumed that if you are a yoga teacher that you never get niggles but we are still only human and sometimes the body needs a rest/rehab. Just listening to my body at the moment and trying not to overdo it but still doing what I love and keeping it ticking over as I find it responds better than doing nothing,not to mention helps keep my mind in check.

  • I still experience a moment of hesitation when it comes to stretching in public 😁
But I love taking yoga off the mat and into my life.

Swipe ➡ to see my shy face when I see eyes on me.

  • Beautiful People by Ed Sheeran and Khalid speaks volumes. Too bad I can't actually play the song. Instagram won't let me. Do listen to it 😘. At first all you hear is that they don't wanna be beautiful people and you like WWWHHYY??? ...but soon as you pause and understand it, you realise that you probably don't wanna be one either. The world's definition of beauty anyway. The beauty that hides all the pain, the scars, the story. The beauty that hides the real you. We walk around daily pretending to be OK, carrying all these burdens and not sharing. Pretending to be beautiful people. Sharing our stories help others with perspective. We help each other see that the world could be a really beautiful place if we all just accepted others and most importantly, OURSELVES.

Stop hiding baby girl, stop hiding fierce woman, stop hiding baby boy, stop hiding gentle man. We all have a story to tell. Realise that we're all on a journey. Born to serve others. With your story, we grow. You are beautiful!!! Not the way the world says you are but because you have this fire inside of you 🔥🔥🔥 This amazing light waiting to come out. Your uniqueness makes you YOUR kind of beautiful 😍 Live that way. Don't conform to the standards of this world. The sooner you realise you were not called to live an ordinary life, not called to fit in, the sooner you can STAND OUT and BE YOU! BE BEAUTIFUL ❤️
Let's fear being "beautiful"... BE YOU! THAT'S THE REAL BEAUTY 😘

  • What do you enjoy to do that is both all in good fun, and fills you with a sense of accomplishment all at once? Everyone has at least one skill set- I feel like I have several that I happen to possess an immense amount of natural talent for (though I have worked to become more skilled) like I am a really great cook both professionally and at home. I have design and decorative talent. I also happen to be a really good writer. Handstand practice for me is SO not one of those things! I like to witness the small victories that come with daily drills and practice, and still, because it’s not my big great talent, I am super happy for the outcome to be less than perfect. I not only accept that, I welcome the imperfection. Have you found that the thing that you feel less good at, but enjoy a lot is more rewarding than the things your really good at? I feel rewarded by things I’m super at because of the outside gratification that the world gives me, but with the hard stuff it’s my own inner gratification and sense of accomplishment that is so satisfying. Glad I have been inspired by so many talented handstanders to work at this. It’s a worthwhile journey that I know knows no end...
