- Just like the handstand video I posted a few days ago, I also love to teach picha the same way (or very similar too☺️).
Pay attending to my body in the video and where I’m palacing my palms, feet and legs.
-To start, sit down with your feet against the wall
-Place your plams mid thigh height
-leave one palm there while you work on turning around and then place one elbow where that palm was.
-Then grabs opposite elbows (this finds your shoulder distance apart, doing this will help yojbone stack vrs. Having your muscles pick up a lot of slack that they don’t need to).
-Then place your hands however comfortable(prayer hands, hands flat on the ground, clasping hands).
-Push out of your shoulders and bring your view to the wall and place one foot at hip height, then step the other up next to it and work on extending one foot while bringing the other knee to chest.
Of course there is so much more to this and to be able to hold it, but this is just my favorite way to get into it and to learn to not rely on the wall 🥰❤️ -

This week, I’ve managed to spend so many random pockets of time, just sitting by myself, reading my book, music plugged in, as I let the world slowly fade into the background. Being cut out from media, technology, I feel mentally more refreshed than ever (to the point where I walked out of a studio without my phone because I didn’t think about it at all). I noticed I had the habit to be looking at my phone whenever I was bored, waiting, settling, and I was curious about who I was when striped away from all these technology and I kinda like it! 😌 This sense of serenity, reconnection with the self, clarity without distraction has indeed brought back a clearer mind, a lot more space in my heart, both for myself and others. And a lot more patience. Recentering work is indeed crucial 🌈 Teaching this week was amazing, had those classes where I walked out feeling good about; students energies, Connection with the students, sequencing and purpose of the class itself, theme and focus of each practice, all seemed to align perfectly (as least for me it did, hope you guys felt the same! 🙈) 😘
Meditation while walking alone is easy. One can keep doing one’s mantra. But in a crowd? In an office? Waiting outside a shopping mall, sitting in the car? And with the eyes open? Try to practice meditation in action. Let this year be a year wherein by the time Christmas comes and you go for Christmas shopping in the middle of a crowded mall, you find yourself in absolute solitude. ~ Swami Veda Bharati

The full moon on Saturday, 21st / 22nd December 2018 is at 0° Cancer, making a helpful aspect to Uranus.
This would be a pleasant change from the last two times, when the full moon squared with Mars.
So the anger and hostility of the past few weeks will melt away to more pleasant changes in emotions and ideas.
Its going to be a good time: it’s all “about excitement, positive change, and pleasant surprises.” This full moon is going to bring about interesting encounters in your personal life, as well as fun and stimulating events. You’re going to feel more open to change and you may actively seek it out, which is the exact energy you want to have before getting into a new year. If you’ve been wanting to try something new, this is the time to do it. You’ll also find that your intuition is stronger, making it easier for you to make big decisions and make the most of any opportunity that comes your way. You’ll also find that your insight is on point, meaning you’ll be able to handle any problems that come up, as well as make new friends.
Since heartfelt Cancer is the first of the water signs, this full moon is a fine time for soaking in a sense of home — while washing away anything that leaves you feeling insecure or imbalanced.
There will be a variety of interesting changes taking place and all of us will be affected by them in one way or another. While you could just go with the flow, you can also harness the full moon’s power and use the vibrational shift to your advantage to help bring about some positive changes in your life and current routine.
Full Moon in Cancer will activate an uncontrollable need to feel loved. This Moon will certainly exacerbate our lack. We will feel better if we are close, almost glued to those we consider important in our lives. We have to be careful to not overdo physical and emotional dependence.
This sign is very intuitive and connected to one’s own emotions. They usually have no problem in indulging in drama and tears. We may even say that they consider crying as a serious cleansing ritual. Therefore, Full Moon in Cancer will provide very deep existential crisis in most people. Email- email@example.com
Yoga practice is like a mirror ~ it just reflects back what is already present in the body & mind. This past week has been busy & all over the placeand I've felt it in all areas of my practice ~ unbalanced on my hands, heaviness shaking, falling, monkey mind, short of breath, tightness, just a general malaise & unease. I've needed more of the things that i thought I was giving myself enough of ~ Rest, quiet, space & calm.
Like a yoga practice, I think life in general is about finding our own balance - finding sthira & sukha , our own balance between effort & ease. Between doing, doing doing & taking time to just be, especially at this time of the year
If you think of energy like a savings account, if you're always giving it out & not putting anything back in, you're left with little (or nothing)
Now after many years...instead of putting the bull horns on and plowing through, I make space for myself to just sit back when I need to. I take time to regroup instead of just running myself down. I practice a lot more Santosha (contentment) & just accept where I am each day, in life & practice and I do that now without feeling like I'm doing something wrong. Some days it's sleep instead & meditations & some days it's arm balances & presses. I accept the not so awesome days as much as the awesome days because every little experience has merit & a lesson attached to it. #santosha #chilloutbeforeyouburnout
