"When you know Truth directly you do not need to ask your neighbors or your teacher. You don’t have to seek confirmation in books."⠀
The Essence of Spiritual Life⠀
By Swami Rama⠀
What I love most about @svastayogaschool
is that our shared mission (me, @rhiarobin @jessboydyoga
) is to support students in becoming better students, which is how (we believe) they become great teachers. We give them deeper access to the tradition of Yoga so that they can swim confidently in the sea of life. Our students / teachers end up developing a daily practice that supports their law gig, or supporting their mom gig with a practice that can ebb and flow as necessary, they end up teaching in non-profits, schools, studios, opening their OWN studios. The point is, we facilitate a program in which each individual can access what they as individuals need within a safe group container.⠀
This year, 2019, we have made the very bold and badass decision to expand to a 300hr level training. We will go even deeper into the Tantric viewpoint as it relates to the Bhagavad Gita, meditation, and subtle body, as well as a small group mentorship and seva (service) project. Q+A sessions happening now for 200hr, coming soon for 300hr.⠀
Embody your practice. Establish your path. ⠀

“My pain may be the reason for somebody’s laugh. But my laugh must never be the reason for somebody’s pain.”
Attempting to advance more art skills such as this little painting we did today! Having experience in all different forms of art really brings new perspectives into others.
I’ve missed painting! Used to be one of my favorite ways to express myself artistically. Super excited to be able to spend time with a paint brush again.

For the past 6 days I’ve been sick in a way I have never experienced before. Besides the usual swells of gratitude that come in these moments for the well functioning body I’ve been given, I’ve been learning so much in this past week about what it really means to rest. The learning was harsh but a necessary response to a prayer I made to learn how to slow down and rest more. Surprised, not surprised-my prayer came fast and strong. Moving forward, I’m remembering first and foremost, that my prayers are made manifest and to always pray for the kind and gentle. Second, that rest is a #practice
, not something that comes naturally to all of us (especially in contemporary capitalism) but that breaking through that resistance to rest-lives a part in me that is resistant to love-specifically self love and self care. And that resting more is an act of resilience, #healing #selflove
Power from heaven GOD'S WORD® Translation John 7:37On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus was standing [in the temple courtyard]. He said loudly, "Whoever is thirsty must come to me to drink. 38As Scripture says, 'Streams of living water will flow from deep within the person who believes in me.'" 39Jesus said this about the Spirit, whom his believers would receive. The Spirit was not yet evident, as it would be after Jesus had been glorified. #Recieve #Power #FromHeaven #Heaven #Paradise #BornAgain #Believe #Trust #Practice #Rebuild #Scripture #Statement #JesusIsGod #Jesus #God #Yeshua #Jesucristo #LordChrist #Love #SpiritMode #Mortal #Think #Mind #Soul #Strength #LordOfLords #Earth #Sheol #Man #Woman
John 2:18The Jews reacted by asking Jesus, "What miracle can you show us to justify what you're doing?" 19Jesus replied, "Tear down this temple, and I'll rebuild it in three days." 20The Jews said, "It took forty-six years to build this temple. Do you really think you're going to rebuild it in three days?" 21But the temple Jesus spoke about was his own body. 22After he came back to life, his disciples remembered that he had said this. So they believed the Scripture and this statement that Jesus had made.
It’s show time! I’ll be showing my work at Ciel Creative Space’s grand opening next Saturday, Jan 26. They’re giving me one of their biggest studios- think Bigs hanging from the ceiling, live music, sips - I’d love to see you!
while this isn’t a ten year time difference, it’s what i use to remind myself that your weight is just a number on a scale and what truly matters is your health and how you feel about yourself - physically and mentally. the photo on the left was taken in august of 2013 - a little over two years before i was diagnosed with crohn’s disease. i was entirely inactive during that time period and remember my mother telling me i had “lost my volleyball legs”. it was a week after that trip to hawaii that i started practicing yoga. i was the same weight that i left high school at - six years prior- had no chest whatsoever and looked (as some now tell me) underweight. what i didn’t know at the time was that my body wasn’t working the way it was supposed to and while i was at a “lower weight” - i was skinny fat and out of shape. fast forward to the photo on the right taken last summer - three years after my diagnosis, almost the same amount of time on a biologic and five full years into my yoga practice, adding in running and hiit workouts along the way. looking at my charts from when i first started seeing my gastroenterologist, i’ve gained between 15-20lbs since the photo on the left. for a while, it was admittedly hard to deal with the new number on the scale. while i realize i was well within my healthy weight range, it was a new experience for me. but then after a while, i realized my body was finally working the way it was supposed to, absorbing the nutrients it needed and allowing me to be more physically active. some days i look back and wish i still had the same body as the left photo - but most days, i look at the right photo and think to myself, “helllll yea, we’re still here!”
Me attempting comics. Doodle style.
