@shininglightyoga enjoys a bit of chai after an ecstatic dance session. Oh and if you’re around this Saturday, they’re holding a Celebration and Thank You day for supporting them in the community for the past few months. Say hi to @jenloweyogalife, she’s one of the best yoga teachers around 💕 📷 @shininglightyoga
Today on the blog, I'm talking about what I'm doing to maintain balance this year! Things like writing down my schedule a week in advance, for example! 😉
And I have some prompt questions for you to take a look at your own life and see if there is some areas that are out of balance! Head over to the blog to check out the whole post!
Is balance something you struggle with? What is something you do to help you stay balanced in your daily life?
As an organization by and for young people, we know how easy it is to sometimes become overwhelmed by the magnitude of environmental destruction. The issues we work on are scary, and that’s why having a supportive community of youth activists is so important ❤️ whether we’re planning for a better future or stopping Charleston traffic to pose with a cute dumpster, we love the @earthecho YLC for providing us with such an incredible network 🌏 how do you unwind and #staybalanced ? Comment below!
I’ve had a lot of requests for an explanation on the drill involving the stretch band. This is a great way to learn just how much you have to push away from the momentum of the club trying to pull you forward and out of your posture. You can also tie the stretch band to a stationary post and it will have the same effect on feeling how to retain tension in the band. And thanks to my handsome hubby for being a great student! #staybalanced#lowerbodywork#husbandandwifeteam
"We are still, yet we sense a growing warmth within us. We are alone, yet we sense others around us, longing to break free, longing for warmth and light. There is a form here, but it is empty. There is life here, but it is still. There is awareness here and it is awakening!
From a place of stillness, we call forth movement. Slowly reaching out, expanding, breathing, stretching, flowing. Into form, we invoke life. Its spark from the fire of the place between, between ourselves and others, between past and future, between the known and the unknown...." - Wheels of life
You can’t compare a storm with a volcano,
Like we’re the same,
When we are not the same.
We don’t work in the same way.
Similar so we may be,
We’re different phenomenons.
We have different qualities.
My storm never wavers.
I’m different levels and different severities all the time,
But always a storm.
But always never enough.
But I’m always still trying.
Always trying to find a middle.
Always trying to keep my feet on the ground.
It’s not as easy as I say it is.
Or as I think it is.
I’m trying to stay level.
To not tip the scales
And have to deal with the consequences.
Nobody around me needs to deal with the consequences.
I’m taking it a day at a time.
Always moving forward.
Even when I catch my breath.
I’m always moving forward.
Even when it looks like I’ve paused.
I’m still fighting.
Even when I’m breaking.
As smoothly as I can,
Not to rock the boat you’re standing in
With my storm all around.
And I know you are too.
I’m sorry that it’s not easy.
For you or for me.
I promise it will get better in time.
But I know that time is limited.
So all I can do is try.
Daily Spread: You have a huge life altering decision to make. It is something you have been feeling and thinking about. It is pulling you higher spiritually, asking you to leave behind the old you. Yes, it is an inward call that is beckoning you to come forward and to leave behind things/people/places that no longer fit with the new life you're embarking upon. Even though you are ready for something new inside, you may not feel or think that you are truly ready. But, spirit would not call you if you weren't. Yes it can be a little scary to set off in a new direction sometimes, but please know spirit is with you. As long as you stay humble and teachable, you will continue to hear the spirits voice that called you to begin with and receive the guidance you will need along the way. Spirit is the guiding light who knows where you are headed. Your job is to keep your mind and heart as pure as possible, in order to continue to hear where to go and what to do. 🙏💫💖 #namaste#meditatedaily#staybalanced#wisdom#love#light#peace#goodvibestribe#universallove#oneness#truth#unity#collective#cardsoftheday#dailyspread#tarot#astrology
