What are you aligning with?
In yoga we spend an exceptional amount of time looking for proper alignment. We hear do’s and don’ts, some musts and a few nevers. Depending on the tradition, these “rules” may utterly oppose what’s being taught just down the street.
One tradition may say “Never this” and the other says “Always that.” Many teachers, through trust in their teachers, and their own understanding of anatomy, movement, the human form, and self-exploration, tell others how to stand, which muscles to engage, what to spin, firm, relax, lengthen, yet, I’ve noticed that within this bag of bones, skin, connective tissue is a human.
A human that has been handed down a particular set of DNA and is having a human experience in the embodied form they’re inhabiting. Sometimes that body is open and other times it is closed, tensing, grieving, celebrating, enlivened or exhausted. Within that is the Atman (the soul) of this being.
When we try to describe or convey alignment, we’re really looking to find the greatest vitality and most amount of ease in our being. This makes space to experience the most amount of integration and connection in our own body and clears a pathway for a mind–heart harmony.
In other words, it’s ultimately not about where we put our hands or how we rotate our thighs. It’s about the experience as an energetic being. It’s about a taste of what it feels like to be whole.
Our body’s carry an innate wisdom—this wisdom that lives in our cells. Our wholeness. Our full humanity.

I wanted a business, but I didn’t want the structure.
I wanted the clients, but I didn’t want to set certain times.
I wanted to help others, but I didn’t want to say no.
I wanted to launch the website and have clients magically call me.
I wanted to post 1 thing and have it all click.
But that’s not the way it works right?
It’s so easy to open a business these days and so hard to see it through.
It takes consistency, resilience, and inspiration to keep on going.
It takes commitment and the willingness to see things differently, make shifts, and grow and grow again.
I’d love to hear what you thought running an online business would be like, what shifts you’ve had to make, and what keeps you going each and every day!
As the practice of Silence takes you deeper into an inner space that you probably had only felt when waking up from a very vivid dream; you might start wondering where has your attention been the moments you found yourself in absolute stillness ? A: Our external “real” experience might just be a simple projection from our inner world, like a movie that’s experienced by our senses and whose director is actually living within. Life outside our consciousness is then, not an independent act but the response to all that comes from our inner world.
Every time you go within even for a small moment, you’re accessing the production office of your external life. This is the place where we can understand deeply who we are and start editing our external experience. #bestillandknow#craftingsilencetuesday ——————————————A medida que la práctica del Silencio te lleva con mas frecuencia a un espacio interior que probablemente solo sientes al despertar de un sueño muy vivido, puedes comenzar a preguntarte ¿dónde ha estado mi atención en los momentos en que me encuentro en absoluta quietud? R: Nuestra experiencia "real" externa bien podría ser solo una proyección del mundo interior, como una película experimentada por nuestros sentidos y cuyo director realmente vive dentro. La vida fuera de nuestra conciencia no es un acto independiente sino la respuesta a todo lo que proviene de nuestro mundo interior.
Cada vez que ingresas por un momento a la quietud en tu interior, accedes a la oficina de producción de tu vida externa. Este es el lugar donde podemos entender profundamente quiénes somos y comenzar a editar nuestra experiencia de vida.
