Morning Yoga for Beginners

Aloha from Mama Maui! ॐ

This is a simple self-care practice with massage, breath of joy and intention setting.

Wishing you love, light and sunshine! xx

Unraveling

In the spirit of freedom, two girls from our 200-hr yoga teacher training and I filmed a practice in our living room.
In our yoga, we don’t have rules or limits or walls. We have only our love for each other.

***

Yoga is a deconstruction of limitations.
A deprogramming of societal conditioning.
A path to inner enlightenment.

Often, people get lost in the “right” or “real” way to do yoga.
Often, people get lost in the way they “should be” or “should act”.
Often, people toss away their dreams to settle for something that is “good enough, I guess”.

This is tragic.

“if only this, then…” or “I wish I could, but…”

We manifest our own lives.
We move how we want to move.
We are who we want to be.

Yoga feels good. Yoga is whatever you want it to be.

A Return to Love | 200-hr Yoga Teacher Training

The day I left the corporate world, a teaching opportunity manifested.

I said: I want to heal, travel, teach.

To touch and be touched, move and be moved.
To scrub mud on my body and joy on my soul.
To kiss the sweet earth and taste love on my lips.

I want to set my spirit alive.

He said: come to Maui, teach teachers, return to love.

And so it begins.

A Day in My Life

Wake up. Be awesome.

Dear Future Me

[youtube=http://youtu.be/sUEJ0PXr4-0]

 

Dear future me,

I love you.

You are one honey-dewdrop of a lucky girl! Don’t forget that.

I hope you still squeal when you see rainbows and dance around naked at sunset while peacocks caw to the didgeridoo. (And if none of those things are around, I hope you imagine it and shake your booty anyways.)

I hope you still do yoga in health food stores and knock over boxes of raw cacao. I hope you still stuff yourself with gogi berries and mangos and climb every tree and car you see and start swordfights in the middle of flea markets. Hiiiiyah!

I hope you still hold hands with your soul sister and walk into gas stations singing songs you made up at the top of your lungs.

I hope you still talk to strangers in a Southern-Chinese accent and tell them about your prosperity meditations. Har Har Har Har. Hey, they worked. 😉

I hope you take your hugs seriously- at least one a day for optimum health! The more the better though. Hugs are healing!

I hope you never forget when you cried tears of joy for the first time, out here by the ocean. You stood on that rock by that statue of Buddha and screamed “thank you” to the divine Goddess. I hope you always say thank you.

I hope you see the beauty in every moment, because everything we see is just a reflection of who we are. Remember that.

Last of all, I hope you don’t take life too seriously. If you don’t make it this lifetime, just try for the next. You’ve got a couple more centuries at least.

Follow your bliss. Give love. Trust in god. Good things will come.

Gratitude

Prana serenades me with her lush, expansive voice, and inhales me deeply in. She owns my body, caressing it with elements of her energy: the wind, the water, the sun. Mortal imperfections disintegrate into raw Earth below, and as I become nothing, I become the universe.

I shake, shake, shake, wild, glorious, free. I am frothing ocean foam, tumbling and tumbling into sea rock. I am a ragged palm frond stroking soft despite cracked angel wings, the worn fingers of a great-great-grandfather. I am pantyhose escaping a clothesline, gleefully giggling away on a windy day.

The sun falls into shavasana with me. His dying rays infuse my soul with a bubbling, ecstatic gratitude. I am a prayer in motion, in dance, in play, giving thanks for the joyous state we are meant to live in: this bliss, this ananda.

Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings everywhere be happy and free,
May the thoughts, words and actions of my own life
Contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all
