#108yogikate

Загрузка...

I remember the first time my teacher offered chin stand (or Ganda Bherundasana in the lovely language of Sanskrit) like it was yesterday. I had no knowledge it existed as an asana. I surely had no awareness I would be capable of finding a pose like this. In the midst of a challenging sequence I was able to get out of my mind, into my breath and into the present moment. When I was offered this asana I took it, without thought or question, without doubting my ability - fully in my breath and in the present moment. We never know what we are truly capable of. That capability becomes extremely limited when the thinking mind gets involved. So I encourage you today - stop thinking, start breathing and living - and watch yourself soar past the limits of what you believe you can do. Thank you @yogalifestudio_ for all you’ve shown me within myself. Sorry Dad (he hates it when I find this asana - makes me love practicing it in front of him 😜) . . . . . #chinstand #gandabherundasana #pushyourlimits #breathinbreathout #breathinthemoment #breatheinbreatheout #breatheinthemoment #asanapractice #asanaeveryday #michiganyogi #michiganyoga #michiganyogateacher #michiganyogagirl #southwestmichigan #southwestmichiganyoga #southwestmichiganphotographer #southwestmichiganphotography #beherenow #inthemoment #righthererightnow #honoryourstrength #asanajunkie #asanajunkies #hereforthegrowth #shanghaizenstudio #shanghaizen #108yogikate #yogalife 📸: @jim.pancoast

Breathe in, breathe out, let it be. Persistently pursuing presence in each moment. Loving self through self discipline (tapas), clinging to nothing to remain here and now (aparigraha), looking inward always - no matter what the outer circumstances become (svadhyaya), and connecting with gratitude to our abundantly loving Creator, to Being (ishvarapranidhana). So blessed to exist, floating in bliss. . . . . . #michiganyoga #michiganyogateacher #michiganyogi #breatheinbreatheout #chakrahealing #meditationheals #meditationbliss #getcentered #reflection #southwestmichigan #southwestmichiganyoga #shanghaizenstudio #shanghaizen #practicepresence #beherenow #thepowerofnow #watchbreath #witnessconsciousness #centeredness #inthemoment #yogikate #108yogikate #inhaleexhale #pranayama #prana #peaceofmind 📸: @jim.pancoast

Soaking up the present moment and all the joy it holds. Now is truly all we have. Past is simply memories, future is simply an illusion of what could be - but Now? Now is beauty. Now is freedom. Now holds peace. . . . . . #weliveelevated #utahyogi #canyonlandsnationalpark #canyonlands #canyonlandsnps #utahmeditation #meditation #beherenow #thereisonlynow #thepowerofnow #yogateacher #michiganyogi #reflection #presence #108yogikate #shanghaizenstudio #shanghaizen #yogaeverwhere #meditationeverywhere . 📸: @jim.pancoast .

We move from balance point to balance point, from center to center. We can't have any concepts or preferences; you have to let the forces move you. In the Way, nothing is personal. You are merely an instrument in the hands of the forces, participating in the harmony of balance. You must reach the point where your whole interest lies in the balance & not in any personal preference for how things should be. The more you can work with balance, the more you can just sail through life. Effortless action is what happens when you come into the Tao (the Way) . . . . . #michigan #michiganyoga #yogamichigan #michiganyogababes #michiganyogateacher #michiganyogagirl #lightpainting #puremichiganyoga #puremichigan #yogabalance #michiganmade #onlyinmichigan #michigander #beachyoga #nightyoga #yogalight #yogagirl #shanghaizenstudio #southwestmichiganyoga #yogaeverydamnday #lightpaintingyoga #beachinversions #yogainversions #yogainthesand #pinchamayurasana #yogalifesj #findyourbalance #tao #108yogikate #float .📷: lit by hand, over 5 seconds exposure by @jim.pancoast
