. | ON PEACE | . To choose a life of non-violence (Ahimsa), does not mean to passively stand on the sidelines and accept tyranny, oppression and terror . To practice Ahimsa is to choose that violence is an unacceptable option; NOT that you are unwilling to ‘fight’ for what is just . Embracing peace and non-violence does not label you a coward, a sheep, or deprive you of embracing the ‘warrior’ spirit . We simply resist in a way that does not resort to violence; through communication, diplomacy, respect, and tact . The path of Ahimsa is paved with difficulty and struggle, especially in modern times, as we seem to absorb multiple ‘enemies’; those that society and government have adorned us with, and those who disagree with our acceptance of finding a peaceful solution . When the pressure mounts upon us, it can seem that violence is the only way out, but if we are able to shift our perspective and leverage the weight from a different angle, a peaceful solution can always be found . Our modern conflicts have removed us from the true price of violence as we watch the global horror unfold from the comfort of our smart devices; our emotions desensitizing to the reality of human conflict . As individuals, it is easier to choose peace; but fear is a motherfucker, and will spread like wildfire . To stand up and resist violence amongst the masses, those intoxicated with fear and hysteria, is the most difficult path . To stand your ground as a peaceful warrior is the truest path of all . Choose peace . #BETHESURF . 📷: @amygpics . #yoga #mensyoga #yogateacher #menatyoga #unarmedforces #ahimsa #peace #choosepeace #veteran #veteranyoga #yogaforveterans #pararescue #combatveteran #yogaforvets #beneaththesurface #specialoperator #yogaeveryday #yogachallenge #breathe #oceantherapy #COMBATVETERAN #foundation #veteranssupportingveterans

„I bend so I don’t break“ is a beautiful quote to describe one of the endless benefits of doing Yoga. Since I am practicing Yoga my flexibility has increased physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. . What is your greatest benefit of doing Yoga?
Feeling accomplished, got into a full headstand without tripod! And yes, that is all the farther my legs split; I have never been flexible, hoping yoga practice will remedy that. Also, yes, yes you can do yoga in @levis while listening to Brand New – jus sayin' 🙏 (The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me, but handstands clear my head 😉) #yoga #yogapractice #practiceyoga #menatyoga #yogamen #headstand #headstandpractice #yogapose #shirtlessmen #shirtlessyoga #exercise #corestrengthening #makingprogress

#BeyondBaseCamp Day3 ~~~~~ • Kathmandu to Lukla • Duration: 40mins (~2.5h) • Distance: N/A (~3mi (5km)) • Elevation: ~2.860m (9,186ft) ~~~~~ Day 3 unexpectedly turned into an eventful uneventful day. ~ The plan on the itinerary was to leave the hotel at 5am to get one of the first flights from Kathmandu to Lukla at around 7am (as flights to the most dangerous airport in the world are rather weather dependant) and then trek the ~3-4h (~5mi/(8km)) to Phakding. ~ At the airport, luggage sorted, the universe decided it wasn’t meant to be. We waited patiently in the hope the airport may reopen and we’d get lucky. Despite the obvious setback, spirits were still high and everyone just took it in their stride - not a whisper of complaint from anyone in the group. ~ Lunchtime came with no prospect of flying that day, so rather than resign to defeat, Honza followed the charm and, after a group vote, decided to try and arrange helicopters to get us to Lukla that day! ~ Due to person/weight restrictions we had to split up into three groups: the first group set off pretty imminently; the second group less so, but eventually left, and the third group (including myself, Honza and Claudine (and Sophie) (@yogabeyond ), Ben (the videographer), and Stephan (Claudine’s brother)) didn’t end up leaving the terminal til about 4pm!, due to EVERYONE trying to get to the choppers that day! ~ Eventually we were flying! My first time in a helicopter, and I must say a VERY cool experience! Group spirits were probably set to 11! ~ Alas, due to the weather the pilot wasn’t able to take us to Lukla airport, and we landed in a field on the side of a mountain (casual). However, turns out we weren’t just over the hill from Lukla (and the others), but a 2.5h trek away!! ~ After a brief chat we decided to take the hit and head to Lukla that evening to join up with the others. By this time the sun was setting, so it was head-torches on for the adventure in the darkness, but eventually we were reunited with the rest of the group (met with a round of applause, which was lovely and victorious-feeling) for some much needed dinner! ~ (Continued in comments...) ~~~~~ #ChooseLove #RideTheWave #DareToMove

Utthan Pristhasana The second pose for #winteropenhips is the lizard, this one was really a challenge. The first attemps made me realise how bad I was on trying to reach this posture, and helped me to fix it and just go as far the body let me. If your body, like mine, does not allow you to reach the desirable posture itself, don't bend too much and don't push it, go as long as your back is still flat, keep both hips and shoulders aligned and keep the posture as long its comfortable for you to keep. You can keep the extended leg out of the mat or leaning on the mat, it's up to you. Have fun!

STRUCTURAL BALANCE . . At the moment I'am struggling a bit with a structural imbalance in my wrist joints. . . Different muscle groups provide different skills and stabilize the body in different positions. . . In my case an overdoing of pushing movements (yoga) with less focus ob pulling (like climbing) lead to strong finger extensors with a lack of strength in the finger flexors. This structural imbalance again lead to a slight pain and degeneration of the wrist cartilage. . . 📷by @ishine_gape . . #davidbewegt #yoga #handstand #structuralbalance
"Our lives are one big puzzle, We don't know how many pieces we've got, There are people who fit in quite nicely, And people who try but do not, We're constantly adding more pieces, All the memories of things we've been through, We add laughter and tears and adventure, And the lessons we've learnt to be true, Everyone has their own puzzle, There will be ones where you do not fit, Don't you ever dare make your piece smaller, Just so you can live there for a bit, If you keep cutting off all your edges, One day you won't recognise what you see, And you'll forget the person you once were, Before the world told you who you should be, Make the most of each piece in your puzzle, It'll be a grand masterpiece when you're done, So you won't have to look back when it's over, And realise you've left out the sun. - Erin Hanson 💜💙💜💙💜 #leaningtowerofpisa #obligatoryyogapose
Had such a great flow this morning redid the yoga for front splits practice by @alyonamoves. . . . Dedication and hardwork will get you through any situation. If something is easy there isn’t much to learn from it but when you challenge yourself when it’s not easy that’s when you see a shift in your life. . . . . . #yoga #inspiration #yogainspiration #homeyogapractice #yogaathome #excercise #yogafun #yogaposes #yogabeginner #yogafit #yogi #flexible #flexibility #flexibilitytraining #fitness #fit #yogaeveryday #yogalife #yogatherapy #yogafam #igyoga #instayoga #yogisofig #yogisofinsta #menatyoga #yogapose #yogajourney #fitflexyfolk #amytribe

The story of Matsyendra, the great sage for whom two seated twisting asanas are named, is one of my favorite from the Hindu tradition, and it holds special consequence during this time of year in the west when the holidays expose latent feelings of abandonment. . Matsyendra was born under an inauspicious star and his parents, believing he was accordingly unworthy, tossed him as a babe into the ocean. It was there that he was swallowed whole by a fish, in whose belly he lived. . Meanwhile in heaven, the goddess Parvati was begging Shiva to tell her the secrets of yoga—secrets he had never shared before. To protect those secrets, so that no one else would hear, Shiva and Parvati escaped to the depths of the ocean. . It was in the depth while Shiva was imparting the high truth that a large fish swam by. The same fish in which Matsyendra was living. There, he overheard Shiva’s secrets. . After practicing the secrets he had learned in the fish’s belly, Matsyendra emerged twelve years later a great, enlightened master. . You might ask why I love this story so much. It’s because we can all relate. We’ve all felt cast aside by those who were supposed to love us—parents, friends, lovers. But like Matsyendra, even when we’ve been hurt by others and suffering alone in the depths, fate can surprise you. Positive change can spring from pain. . P.S. If you’ve read this far and live in #washingtondc , join me tonight at @flowyogacenter at 730 to explore spinal range of motion. . . . . . #handstand #scorpionpose #armbalance #inversionaddict #lululemonmen #yoga #yogalove #yogateacher #dcyoga #vinyasa #yogainspiration #backbend #benddontbreak #menatyoga #boysofyoga #flexible #yogajournal
The purpose of the asana practice goes well beyond the physical. The physical practice serves as a hurdle to challenge our awareness to what we believe is important. It is a way to practice taking action, but with breath and focal attention leading the way. #awareness
Hoy es el cumpleaños de una de las personas que me ha hecho tan feliz (aunque a veces lo quiera ahorcar -que estoy seguro que él a mi también- haha). - Cuando nos conocimos hace casi 5 años, jamás imaginé que llegaríamos al punto en el que estamos ahora pero no me puedo imaginar a nadie más con quien vivir esta experiencia llamada vida. ¡Feliz cumpleaños, gordito! 🐥❤❤❤❤🐇 - #bday #hubby #couple #gaycouple #mensyoga #backbend #yogaeveryday #igyogachallenge #igyoga #yogateacher #yogamen #meninyoga #yogadudes #thisisyoga #menatyoga #instayoga #instagay #igyogacommunity #yogamex #boysofyoga #yogalife #yogabody #backbend
Moving from handstand to upward facing dog. A transition that I've just been able to understand and practice. Still some arch in my spine as I need some more flexibility in my shoulders, but slowly getting there. Every new challenge comes as a way to discover yourself, it hits your ego and grounds you a little more. Keeping yourself humble, curious and patient may help to overcome the difficulties that the practice makes you face. ☺️🤸 #vriksasana #handstandpractice #handstandnation #inversionaddict

Happy Tuesday... Christmas memories...yeah they are what they are! 😂 I think every reader of Italian descent is reading this and laughing a little. Every year is a controversy yet every year is a memory. Just wanted to lay out a Dancer pose. My memory of Christmas vision to this year is looking for joy. So I'm a bit joyfully reaching for my piece of Christmas time. Christmas in the tangible sense is a mind set really. If you have your mind made up to enjoy it and have no expectations of anyone it will have it's own level of happy ending. Don't force the joy and don't force it on others. It happens whether we participate or not. Keeping ours small has a good feeling in its own way. I don't get disappointed in anyone over it anymore. My focus of the two days is the Savior. If people come and keep it in their way with us...they're welcome. In my childhood not showing up wasn't an option and believe me that wasn't a concern. But as times and cultures change...my expectations have dropped. But my expectations of myself remain the same and they won't change. My eyes are right where they belong. "My heart told me to seek you, LORD, so I am coming to ask for your help."

People and situations will come and go in life, but the person in the muero will be there forever. So be good and loving to yourself. Don’t assume, ask. Be kind. Tell the truth. Don’t say anything you can’t stand behind fully. Have integrity. Tell people how you feel. What’s most difficult to say, usually needs saying the most. I’m sorry for what I’ve never said.

Brothersofyoga2 Yoga Challenge Day 3. Any Warrior . Elegí esta variación de #virabhadrasana 3 que combina maravillosamente las virtudes de un guerrero: Voluntad en su centro de equilibrio, apertura en su corazón, confianza en la dirección del alma, entrega sin sumisión... Un asana donde la fuerza en la raíz permite que no haya esfuerzo, solo fuerzas que se sostienen entre sí. Meditaba en la necesidad de soltar la lucha y la resistencia para encontrar la templanza que promueve la paz, en las fuerzas contrapuestas que se equilibran con suavidad si se las deja obrar. Cuantas veces tememos que no nos alcance la fuerza para transitar la experiencia y nos sometemos al miedo de no comprobarlo... Pensaba que luchamos por conquistas que nos agotan, cuando simplemente se trata de iniciar el impulso, sostenerse presente y dejarse llevar por esa corriente divina que nos lleva a la experiencia que hemos de transitar para salir transformados y expandidos, más conscientes de nuestra potencia y más seguros de nuestra esencia real. . #Brothersofyoga2 Challenge 🧘‍♂️ Host @xocloh @tomcyoga Support @faithfoxmama #iloveyoga #menatyoga #yogawhores #yogapose #yogisofinstagram #igyoga #yogagram #iloveyogamen #yogaworld #yogainspira #yoga
. Anandambhudi-vardhanam... 👁🌊👁 The ever-increasing ocean of bliss... . In the ashram we wake very early and start our day with sacred songs and meditation. We greet the Deities of Krishna and Radha. We hear transcendental knowledge from Srimad Bhagavatam and offer obeisances to guru. We dance ecstatically. The bliss is palpable and succulent during these special hours. It must be what the spiritual world feels like.... . As the time approaches for me to get on with my day I beg for the bliss to persist as I step out of this oasis. . More often than not material energy and illusion have their way with me and I am left in a stagnant pool. When I’m caught in those dreary waters I tend to isolate and my mind becomes plagued with old and hurtful memories. Bad habits sometimes come back and, as my isolation deepens, it begins to feel like I am completely alone on a stranded island. In those dark moments I yearn to return to the eternal bliss of spiritual life. . . There is nothing that reminds me more of God’s grace than looking up at the sky. From that lonely island I gaze at the vast and unlimited sky and cry out for mercy. . . In the Bhagavatam it is said that just as the sky does not know where it ends or begins the Lord Himself is also bewildered by this spiritual happiness. As He measures the ocean of bliss the spiritual happiness increases. And He measures again and it increases again...and it goes on like this - eternally. . . I am very fortunate to have felt a tiny drop of this awesome energy, this unfathomable potency, this dynamic devotion...I feel it most in kirtan. When I chant with utmost sincerity I feel that I am not alone. I know that the Lord sees me on my forlorn island. I trust in His presence and I am lifted out of my murky mind. . . I have been given so many opportunities to share the unending bliss of kirtan...my heart is completely full of gratitude. 🙏🏼 . 📸 @gnzmarroquin . #bhakti #yoga #yogateacher #yogainspiration #yogagram #igyoga #menatyoga #srimadbhagavatam #yogawisdom #spiritual #bliss #ananda #kirtan #happiness #devotion #nyc #skyline #tadasana #love #eternal #krishna #ashram #meditation #ocean #sky #chant

Just like the weather, the body has it’s seasonal clock too. Winter time demands for a different rhythm of practice ☃️ for the past couple weeks I’ve been favouring simple feel-good stretches over strong and fiery arm balances, inversions, and backbends, and I have to say, it’s exactly what I needed! There’s a lot of focus on flexibility in yoga, but if we can’t even be flexible with the way we practice what does all the flexibility we build in our body amount to? Let me know what your current practice is like in the comments below👇🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 Loving this shot by my cousin Kaoru! 👕 Sleeveless hoodie by @2xu_hk ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #YogaYourWay #WinterIsComing

Great machines these Powerplates, really useful training tool and well worth forking out for, especially for those limited on space 🤦🏻‍♂️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here I am putting it to best use with a straddle up. If you judge an exercise by the horrendous faces you pull whilst doing it, this one’s a winner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Anyway the Powerplate got a 9.5/10 from me in this test, good responsiveness on the buttocks and some really lovely tingles to boot 😂

Playing around with lotus in peacock. Yay bodies! Work your finger tips in all the practices you can. Persevere. All can be transformed. Shoutout to my soul sista @onwardupwarddogyoga #yoga #lotuspeacockpose #menatyoga
This one combines so many different elements of mobility that I feel like I struggle with. So of course I wanted to see where I could get. I warmed up, set the heater very high and tried it over and over. This was my best result. It's never going to be wrong to try something that feels like it is out of your reach. As long as you are intelligent and mindful in the way you approach challenges you will always discover something interesting and ultimately see progress. #workinprogress #flexibility #stretch #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogalife #yogi #menatyoga #broga #yogaaroundtheworld #yogainspiration #beluminousyoga #bly #fitness
🤩⛄️🐳Day 1️⃣1️⃣ of #CollateralPractice with @cyogalife ↪️ #SidePlank variation 🐳⛄️🤩 Today’s modification is actually a warm up to another modification for today’s main pose. In the full expression for #visvamitrasana (as shown by Carmen), the front leg is to the outside of the front arm. This requires a lot of opening in the chest, shoulders; and hamstring as well as strength in the hip flexor... and that’s not even talking about the side body yet! What we’ll be working toward is a variation where the front leg is on the inside of the front arm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Start in #plankpose with the arms pressing firmly into the mat, core engaged, and thighs squeezed and lifting. Begin to move the weight into the left hand as you roll the body to the left while pushing the knife edge of the left foot into the mat. Stack your right foot on top of the left foot and extend the right arm to sky coming into traditional side plank. From here, really begin to reach with the right leg so that the sole of the foot comes to the floor. Press firmly into the right foot while keeping the left leg straight and fully engaged. Begin to bend the left and think of bringing the knee to the chest while squeezing the core super tight. If this is your limit, stay here as it will already be a fair amount of work for the side body. The next step is to grab a hold of the left foot and extend the leg (as shown in the photo). The final step would be to direct the left leg toward the front of the mat and extend out through the arm and toes coming into an “easier” version of the main pose with the left leg on the inside of the leg arm. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check out @jinny.suh.00 for modifications on the ‘even days’ this month! 📷:@darling_nicki
Happy with the progress, definitions starting to show; the hard work, heavy lifting, consistency is paying off. It’s a slow process. Definitively more work is needed, nevertheless a huge motivator.

Nothing is more important than your own sense of happiness and inner peace and that of your loved ones. Life brings many miracles; the gift of sight, of breath, of love. . . Our body we use and share with others is a gift. What’s most important is you feel at home. Your home is your body because your body is where you live no matter where you are. Remember to give love to where it’s most needed, at home for you and others. . . . . #yoga #yogabody #love #movement #yogapractice #breath #life #handstand #vinyasaflow #headstand #presstohandstand #yogajournal #yogateacher #yogainspiration #menatyoga #healthymovement #yogalove #namaste

“The choice is either you fix yourself or you try to fix the truth. With one you will attain to the highest , with the other you will turn into trash” Sadhguru
Effort/Persistence/Enthusiasm (vīrya) is one of the Five Strengths conductive to the optimization of the individual. If practiced with detachment, challenging yourself with a new posture can be a great source of motivation. #yoga #yogi #yogainspiration #yogachallenge #armbalance #astavakrasana
