Sometimes all the strength that lies dormant within us can be accessed within something as close as our next breath. Sound crazy? I know it might. But I myself have been battling through some overwhelmingly difficult days, and when I feel like I'm loosing my balance, I turn my attention to my breath, and stay within its bounty for a while. I become present again, here and now, within the peace that is accessible inside us at all times. It always perplexes me why we do not tap into its magic more often; something that is literally a breath away. Slow down. Take the time to be still within this powerful healing force. Come back as often as you can remember to. Practice it over and over, and let it center you. It will be so rewarding that you will, no doubt, begin to know it's vital importance in your daily life. I myself do love classic meditation, but it's not for everyone, so if you can just keep it as simple as focusing on your breath, slow, deep, full, and cleansing, that is enough to guide you back to the powerful source within. You will regain your bearings and find clarity, focus, and a sense of peace. At least that's my experience. Sending extra love to anyone feeling overwhelmed and anxious right now. I feel you, and am breathing with you. Peace and love 💙Leila

As I wear the dress you wore as a teenager, I wonder to myself if you knew what kind of woman you would be today.
Strong. Resilient. Independent. Outspoken. Brave.
Did you know that war would tear your home apart and you would be forced to move to a foreign land in which you had no desire to live in? Did you know you’d have to start over? Learn a new language, understand a new culture, learn to live in a land so different from your own, all while being an amazing wife and loving mother. Did you know that would only be the beginning of many more times you’d have to start over? Time and time again, 5 steps forward, 10 steps back, and yet you never lost faith. You knew that after rain, there would be sun.
How can I put into words how much you’ve taught me mom? You’ve shown me how to write my very own happily ever after. Not the kind where prince charming comes to the rescue, but the kind where I come to the rescue. The one in the knight and shining armor, here to save the day, is me. You’ve taught me that mom, just by being you. You taught me what it means to be strong, independent, resilient, brave. Day in and day out you always encourage me to be more and do more. You see the potential in me even when I don’t.
Mom, did you know, you’re one of the strongest advocate for women I have ever met? Growing up in a culture where women’s voices might not always be heard, you made sure it was. In a society and culture where men are consistently praised you made sure that everyone knew how much women should be praised. There was never a day where you let your daughters believe they were second best to men. When people talked about how unfortunate it was that you didn't have a son, you always talked about how incredibly lucky you are to have not only one but two daughters.
There isn't enough time in a day, a week or a year, to sing your praises. You’re the best mother, the best wife, the best friend, the best hostess, the best advocate, the best employee. If in a lifetime I can have even one ounce of your amazing qualities I will consider myself lucky. I hope I can make you proud mom, just the way you make me proud. -Bahana Naim
Welcome to another episode of "I waited until the end of the day to practice!" 😩 After dinner out with my friends I put on a 30 minute @ma1ijane podcast, despite the fact that my husband was home and the only place to practice is right in the middle of the main floor, not to mention the cat fight that occurred during supta baddha. I didn't even skip flip-dog, which in the privacy of a home practice is a HUGE win for me.🔥 Plus I had @_la_flama_blanca as a photog and spotter! ❤️ @gingerschocobo42 @jes.stark @yogidailey #handstand#handstand365#AM3652018#practiceanyway#rise#yogi#poweryoga#podcast @amyoga111 #inversion#upsidedown

Omg!! 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪 someone stop me from eating these cookies! Lol 😂 -
So my friends kidnapped me today and took me to the gym and after that drove 40mins to @insomniacookies 😬
They are by far the best cookies i ever had!! If you never had them before go get a chocolate peanut butter cookie 😁
So I had 0 intention of snatching today or attempting my PR goal but... i did it! I finally hit 135. While im super excited, here are a few points/critiques for myself
-pull knees apart during the 1st pull to keep the bar closer to me
-for the 3rd pull, really pull myself under the bar quickly
-straighten the arms! I just practiced this but i didn't do that here at all lol
315 4x4 felt great
Deficit deads 235 3x5
My hands were really beat up after so i have use a pumice stone to smooth out my calluses
Nothing much to note other than the stuff I've said the last few posts
I am going to be taking some extra rest days to properly recover and come back stronger than ever. I'll still be posting on IG tho so stay tuned.
