โ€œBefore yoga, it would have seemed a little hocus-pocusy, kind of mythological, but now thereโ€™s an underlying reality that becomes apparent through the practice. THE PRACTICE CHANGES YOUR LIFE, and the whole point of changing your life, I believe, is TO BECOME SPIRITUALLY COMFORTABLE.โ€ โ€” Brad Ramsey (from the book โ€œGurujiโ€) _ #yoga #yogapractice #kpjayi2018 #mysorelife #mysuru #mysore #yogalife #ashtangalife #kpjayistudent #spiritualbeing #yogalove #yogi #yogini #practice8limbs #mysoreashtangi #india #gotoindia #traveltheworld

๐Ÿ™๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’— this pup needs help, and her family could use some, too. ๐Ÿ™ my friends came across this family of Indian Pariah dogs a few days ago. This one pictured here (the first pic and the blanket pic) is Sukhi. We are going to find each dog a new home to get them off the streets and into gentle arms and loving homes. ๐Ÿถ if you feel called to help make a difference, here are the ways you can: โ€ข share this post โ€ข donate to the #gofundme link in bio โ€ข send loving thoughts and prayers that we may work as a compassionate community to find homes for the tender and bruised souls of these pups. ๐Ÿถ DM me if you have more questions or interest about these pups. ๐Ÿ™THANK YOU #mysuru #india #indianpariahdog #indianpariahsofinstagram #indianpariah #indianpariahofinstagram #indianpariahsofinsta #streetdogs #savealife #mysorelife #kpjayistudent #kpjayi #kpjayi2018 #sukhi #ashtangayoga #seva #ashtanga #practice8limbs #yogi #yogini #mysoreashtangi
โ€œIt is in the nature of Indian tradition that the student should strive to understand the teacher, for in striving, and not from being spoon-fed, is knowledge revealed. The yoga texts note that the teacher can show you what to do and how to do it, but the student must fill in his or her OWN EXPERIENCE by CONSTANT, DEDICATED PRACTICE.โ€ โ€”Eddie Stern (from preface of Guruji). _ #guruji #eddiestern #ashtangayoga #urdhvamukhapaschimottanasana #ashtanga #mysore #mysuru #kpjayi #kpjayistudent #mysoreashtangi #mysorelife #ashtangalife #india #gotoindia #svadyaya #kpjayi2018 yoga #yogalife #yogini #yogi #practice8limbs

MLC has been the leading source for my formal #Ashtanga training and practice, and I couldnโ€™t be more proud to be under the watchful eye and in the loving arms of these guys. _ In this pic, I see dedication, devotion, love, patience, practice, compassion, joy, laughter, and a lot of community. _ GRATEFUL ๐Ÿ™ _ #ashtangayoga #mysorelife #kpjayi #mysuru #mysore #kpjayistudents #ashtangafamily #yoga #yogalife #yogalove #yogi #yogini #yogafamily #yogacommunity #yogalove #ashtanga #ashtangalife #india #traveltheworld #gotoindia #kpjayi2018
First comes the rain, then comes the bow. ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐ŸŒŽ๐ŸŒˆ _ Last week: _ First, IRRITABLE Second, DEPLETED Third, NOTHING to GIVE _ I noticed myself pulling away, kind of retreating to my bedroom, and offering less to others than I usually do. I felt some FOMO, and some confusion about who I am. _ Mysore Ashtangis seem to say that each journey to India peels back the layers and layers of identity that we use in our home lives to label ourselves. Itโ€™s my first time here, and Iโ€™m beginning to feel this shift, and it can be unnerving. Without my usually roles, who am I? I know a few things: Iโ€™m a kind soul, honest, loving, and compassionate. ๐Ÿ’• _ But what is identity? I am a realtor, yogi, Ashtangi, yoga teacher, wife, sister, daughter, dog mom, and friend. What else? I have brown hair and I tend to get tan in the sun. What else? Thereโ€™s a brown spot in my right eye. _ Isnโ€™t identity what makes us human? Donโ€™t our physical qualities, heart beat, LIFE, BODY, make us who we are... Its what separates us from the spiritual beings. We have LIFE. We are so fortunate. _ Maybe Iโ€™m starting to see the difference between the labels and roles I create versus what I was given from my CREATOR. _ All in all: I like my identity. I am proud of my existence, my perseverance, the way that Iโ€™ve built myself back up after so much trauma and pain. I love my life. This life is real. And itโ€™s raw. And It Is LOVE ๐Ÿ’— #mysuru #rainbow #mysore #india #ashtangayoga #kpjayistudent #gotoindia #peelthelayers #identity #identitycrisis #yogi #yogini #ashtanga #mysorelife #loveyourself #healthyself #mysoreindia #mysoreashtangi #trauma #pain #growth #chattanoogayoga #fomo #depression #anxiety #compassion #strokesurvivor #kpjay2018 #kpjayi #kpjayistudent

โœจ L O T U S โœจ It can represent so many beautiful things. What does it mean to you? โ€ข patience โ€ข purity โ€ข Love and compassion for all things โ€ข rising out of suffering โ€ขโ€ขโ€ข and so many more!! It deserves a google followed by a meditation. ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Things always change, but for me now, it represents rising up out of suffering. Humans have a tendency to recreate horrible traumatic things that have happened. So for instance, something out of my control occurred when I was young, and my consciousness didnโ€™t know how to process it. I didnโ€™t have the tools, so as I get older, I recreated the same issue in a different situation to try to right that former wrong. Usually this behavior doesnโ€™t get us anywhere until we obtain the tools to process and grow. โœจ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ Y O G A is my tool.

"โ€ฆ. The land of dreams and romance, of fabulous wealth and fabulous poverty, of splendour and rags, of palaces and hovels, of famine and pestilence, of genii and giants and Aladdin lamps, of tigers and elephants, the cobra and the jungle, the country of hundred nations and a hundred tongues, of a thousand religions and two million gods, cradle of the human race, birthplace of human speech, mother of history, grandmother of legend, great-grandmother of traditions, whose yesterdayโ€™s bear date with the modering antiquities for the rest of nations-the one sole country under the sun that is endowed with an imperishable interest for alien prince and alien peasant, for lettered and ignorant, wise and fool, rich and poor, bond and free, the one land that all men desire to see, and having seen once, by even a glimpse, would not give that glimpse for the shows of all the rest of the world combinedโ€, Mark Twain - Keep it real! #incredibleindia #exploreyouredge
It can be so easy to let my mind get carried away. Before I know it, Iโ€™m buried in spreadsheets and stressing out about things I canโ€™t exactly control. BREATHE ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™€๏ธ PRAY ๐Ÿ™ GIVE THANKS ๐Ÿ˜Š Then I remember that I am lucky if Iโ€™m worried about my work at home... because I love my work, and have sweet clients who love me. And Iโ€™m lucky if Iโ€™m barely counting the pennies to be sure I can afford the car to replace my little old Jetta when I get home.. because I can even think about replacing it means Iโ€™ve come a long way!! And Iโ€™m so lucky to have all the love, in India and at home, because it took a village to get me here. Experienced Ashtangis told me the way, and Papa Drew is at home holding down the fort. Annnnd, we even have friends to help us when he has to leave town for work. I HAVE SO MUCH. SO MUCH.

โ€œIncidentally, the long-held idea that spices were used to mask rotting food doesn't stand up to much scrutiny.

#kpjayi J-11 #masalachai Witnessing. The essence of meditation is nothing but being a witness. You see a flower. You are here. It is there. Being the Witness is seeing that there is a witness in you which is seeing you seeing the flower. Witnessing is finding your inner self. Like looking into your deepest layer in a mirror. Now meditation starts to happen. Not a seated meditation rather a practice to hold on to throughout your day. Witnessing, watching. When you are simply witnessing the thoughts, witnessing that these are just ideas that you have created, you are able to separate yourself from your thoughts, your are not the thoughts. Then who are you? Just a witness of your thoughts, of your life, of your sadness, your experiences... Suddenly you become different from the experience, higher. Like a watcher. Then you can laugh at your sadness, at your thoughts. Then you are in control. You are riding the mind. And slowly thoughts disappear. Then there is suddenly a peaceful silence. When you are watching your state of the mind, anger, sadness, happiness, they suddenly disappear and an even greater silence is experienced. A certain euphoria. If you can taste that euphoria for splits of seconds, minutes, then everything will make sense. ๐Ÿ“ท: @ifilmyoga ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ’– . . . . . #meditate #reflect #meditate #observe #realise #meditation #euphoria #sunset #yoga #spirituality #spiritualawakening #sensation #yogainspiration #mysorelife #yogalife #yogini

๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒบ โ€œIf you want to have faith, ask for it.โ€ - Rose Kennedy (Maria Shriver tells this story that her grandmother was like, duh, just ask for it. ๐Ÿ˜Š) _ Faith is like a muscle. It must be built. There are layers. Start by asking for it. Pray. _ First, youโ€™ll get a little proof here and there. Then, if you keep believing, keep asking, keep moving, youโ€™ll be given more and more. _ WARNING: itโ€™s growth, so itโ€™s not always unicorns and rainbows. There are challenges and trials, but these are the places we find strength, resilience, persistence. _ I believe we gain our tools through trials, and we enjoy the fruits of labor when things are working. We will always have both. Always. _ No matter how we look from the outside, nothing will immunize us from the struggles and growth within. This is life. ๐ŸŒบ _ #yogalife #grow #faith #mysorelife #ashtangatravels #liveyourdreams #mysuru #gokulum #havefaith #love #yogalove #flower #india #traveltheworld #loveyourself #healthyself
