✨Transformational tuesdays! ✨
Above is my scorpion journey over the last three years, These 3 pictures all have one year apart, the first picture was taken 3 years ago when I first started my yoga journey, the second picture is after two years of practising yoga and the bottom is now after three years of consistent practice. Each picture shows the journey and time it’s taken me to get to full scorpion with practice 🙏😘 as you can see I was by no means as flexaible as I am now when I first started yoga 😂 I remember the top photo being taken when I attempted scorpion for the first time and thinking back I’m no where near flexible to do it, but then I thought to myself, I’m going to try my best, continue with regular practice and and see where it takes me! Through daily practice waking up early
and working on my strength and flexibility fast forward one year again I progressed further, I became more flexible in my lower lumbar, stronger in my back and shoulders more mobile and able to hold myself up in pincha longer too! Still not there I continued to practice practice practice and told myself I will get there by myself soon. Until 3 years later I’m now in full scorpion. 🙏
If someone told me three years ago I could do scorpion 3 years down the line I would of been baffled as to how! What I have learnt most of all the last few years is yoga can’t be rushed, it takes time and continuity, to see results and to feel the rewards of the practice inside and out we have to keep going with it, even if we feel we can’t, because in the end we’ll get there! ❤️ anything is possible if we put our heart & soul init it!
I hear all the time “I’m not flexible enough for yoga” but what I have learnt on my journey is flexibility comes with practice not to start 🙏❤️ Always believe you can and you will ☺️ these pictures show you with practice you can! If I can you can 😘

SAVE THE DATE!!!!!! In one month, I will give two Events @desaseni_avillageresort
The emotional body is located with the mental, the thoughts. The emotions help to materialise the thoughts, it is the translation between the mind and the physical self. It is what makes us experience thought as real.
In order to heal the emotional body, yoga offers a beautiful tool. We do not need to change anything, we do not need to fix ourselves. We need to give the uncomfortable feelings, the pain, the sadness its space.
In our YIN session we will help the healing process by releasing the discomfort, creating space and just be with whatever comes up. The painful experiences related to matters of love, isolation, acceptance are situated it the physical body around our vital organs, around the ribcage. We will address the five layers in our chest opening yin practice so that we can allow for them to integrate. It will be a beautiful gift to yourself and the first step towards feeling joy, is allowing yourself to receive all that love you want to give to others, to yourself first.
In our MEDITATION, we will concentrate on the emotional body and give the space for it to talk to us. We will then take this further into a visualisation with inner child healing.

"I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my Soul." – Rumi
Because I just love them. It's a part of my daily routine and it's a part of every class I teach.
People often approach me after class and share how their back pain is gone or how much better they feel after this movement.
Others - give me a annoyed looks during the class when I focus too much on mobility. :) The first group- coudnt make me happier. As I often doubt myself in regards of my teaching philosophy and style. I guess, we all do sometimes. I try to focus more on staying true to myself rather than fitting into the 'box'. And thanks to all the wonderful people who cared to share their good words with me, I believe more n more that "being true to yourself' is the right way.
So if you resonate with someones ideas/teaching ,- do let them know. Good feedback motivates. It's very needed. For everyone. 💛
Move your spine often. Daily. Attempting to isolate one vertabrae at a time. Dont rush. Accept the stiffness in certain areas. It does get better. Try to get into that point between the shoulderblades. Stop collapsing into the lower back. Slow down. Dont rush. You are doing it for yourself. Dont cheat. And remember- you are as old as you spine feels. Stay young! 🙏💛
I love you Bali ❤️🧘🏽♀️🙏🏼
I’ve had a very consistent meditation and mantra practice for over a year now and it’s still not always easy. Even now, I’m doing this post instead of meditating! 🙈But no matter how challenging it is for me to sit my butt down every day I still seem to make it happen and I always feel better afterwards. More than better, I feel ready. Ready for whatever comes my way. If you have any questions about mediation or mantra please shoot me a DM. These tools have literally changed my life and more than happy to share whatever knowledge I have. ☺️

How are you feeling today? 🌼
We are sliding head first into the last few days of teacher training here in Bali. The end of trainings always bring with them a plethora of emotions. Excitement with a fair share of fatigue. Deep love with a side of sadness. And an endless reservoir respect for all of the students that showed up every day and every night with open hearts and shining spirits.
I’ll be hanging out in Bali a bit longer and am so happy that the stars and schedules have aligned and I’ll be teaching at @radiantlyaliveyoga

❤️🍒🍷Today is smiles and kicking butt.
Last night I was processing old programs of Am I doing enough.
I work daily to keep my frequency high.
Sometimes I feel afraid my heart will get broken if I trust too much.
Sometimes I get in my head and have nightmares about my abusive past.
Sometimes I get white girl wasted and split twerk 🍑🍑🍑
And I def cry when I’m processing energy.
But most of the time.... I feel like a freaking Bad Ass 👊🏼🙋🏽♀️😁
Right now I’m in my Feminine Power.
I’m loving and nurturing my body.
My heart is wide open ❤️
I feel unity with every woman.
I feel so loved and I feel safe enough to drop off the Earth with my eyes closed while mama Universe catches me 💫
You’re not alone sister.

I’ve been afraid to fall for a very long time. When I started to work on my arm balances eight months ago, it became a real problem. I had to face my fear, to acknowledge it and overpass it. I came to realize that I was deeply afraid of getting hurt and suffer. It wasn’t really about falling or failing but about pain and suffering. What if I injured myself?
What is true though is that I kept going to arm balances classes every week, I kept challenging myself and practice until I started trusting myself. My body knows how to fall, and it had known it all the way. But my head was stronger. My head kept asking me what if. What if I die from brain concussion?
We move forward in life with our head, with plans and ideas and strategies. We move forward in life with control. Not only we have no control at all but more importantly we’re missing the point. We’re missing the magic of life. The magic of my body who knows exactly what is good for me, who knows exactly who I am and what I am made for, who knows exactly how to take care of myself, how to catch myself if I fall, how to heal if I get injured, how to grow. We just have to listen and trust.
Your body tells you everything you need to know. Your body has your back, and from day one. Listen and trust.
Thanks to all my teachers who told me this a million times but you know, until you realize it for yourself you don’t hear 😂. @yoganthropologist @murnimade @markdas @carlostaomovement @julcirkyoga

after a wonderful yoga session and seeing this little cutie... 🐱
Expect nothing, accept everything.
So much of a meditation practice is about managing expectations.
We can't chase sensations! Not every meditation will be like sitting in a rain of glory. Some days your monkey mind will jump around from branch to branch. Other days you may feel like Buddha himself. There are no "bad" meditations – simply more or less awareness. Be patient with your practice. Be indifferent to whatever experience that is offered, and you will reap the beautiful benefits.
Our 2019 offering is almost complete and ready for YOU!
Are you ready to....
Experience Mama Bali like never before?
Explore her hidden gems away from the tourist trail and hear the wisdom of the island from the locals?
Dive deep into movement as a medicinal practice which will elevate your spirit, nourish your embodiment and give you something to take home and share with your tribe?
Learn how to make your own skin care products and extract flower infusions for their unique skin enhancing properties and divine smell?
Laze around the pool in a sublime tropical paradise which will make you pinch yourself to ensure you're not dreaming?
Learn about daily ritual in synch with the natural cycles of existence and the world around you?
Embody, practice and fall in love with yourself as you move and flow around the mat twice daily with sunrise qigong practices and Prana Vinyasa yoga?
Connect with like minded friends on the path who will feel like family when you return home?
Each year our tribe grows and blossoms as we soak up the bhav of Mama Bali, layers upon layers of goodness filling your mind, body and spirit with the only magic this island of the Gods cultivated.
Stay tuned for our date announcement and special early bird booking exchange!

Часть 2. Продолжение. Если не видели начало, то сохраняем этот пост и читаем сначала вчерашний.
▶️Через год или два горизонт стал расчищаться от туч и начало пробиваться солнце радости и удовольствия от практики. Я начал чувствовать тело, оно становилось податливее и отзывчивее, сильнее и здоровее. Я стал менее вспыльчив и раздражителен, меньше нервничал и стал более сфокусирован. Постепенно перестал есть мясо, без насилия над собой - просто не хотелось. Потом ушёл и алкоголь и поменялся образ жизни. Здоровье начало восстанавливаться. Колени, которые ни один врач не могл вылечить, сначала прекратили прогрессировать, а потом пошли на улучшение.
Все это проходило через боль, дисциплину, усилия, но зато я получал ценнейший опыт. Не из книг, а я проживал это сам, чувствовал в своём теле. Постепенно пришло осознание, что этот опыт может быть полезен другим, и несправедливо держать его только при себе. С тех пор начал делиться опытом и знаниями - преподавать и консультировать.
Теперь мои двери открыты для всех желающих. 🤗
Я специализируюсь на Хатха и виньяса флоу йога. Также провожу сессии йога-нидры (глубокое психическое и физическое йоговское расслабление), медитации (випассана, метта) и с недавних пор - стретчинг (растяжка).
Занятия подходят для любого уровня подготовки за счёт того, что я даю вариации асан от простых к самым сложным. Таким образом новичкам всегда по силам сделать базовый вариант, а продвинутые могут углубить свою практику и освоить что-то новое. Во время практики я помогаю персонально каждому ученику корректно и безопасно отстроить асану с учетом возможностей его тела. Например, была ученица с травмой голени. За счёт индивидуального подбора асан и использования йога блоков и ремня она могла полноценно заниматься вместе с остальной группой.
Кто готов - записываемся в директ. 📩 Продолжение следует.

TEMPORARY CIRCUMSTANCES ⭕️ Today I had some interesting conversations about embracing your emotions.
Society forces us to cover up our emotions as long as they are not aligned with what the people around you want to see in you.
You are not allowed to be unhappy, scared or depressed for more than a couple of days. BUT sometimes those feelings stay with us for a much longer period. Instead of hiding, blocking or covering that emotion, I want to invite you to give in to whatever you feel. Listen to your body, your heart and your mind and just accept the emotions you have. Don’t be scared of being vulnerable. The only thing you have to do is accepting every emotion as a temporary state. Nothing lasts for ever neither our emotions nor our bodies. Everything follows the principles of “Memento mori”. Life is comparable to water. We are in constant motion and surrounded by different vibrations. If you can accept everything that happens as a temporary circumstance, you will always keep on moving forward.
I wish you a wonderful Tuesday and feel free to join our beautiful “get together Sunset 🌅 yoga class” @thepaluh
