Mannnnn, just taking a week off from running makes me feel like I've never run before. 3 miles with 5x100 hill repeats almost made want to lay down forever and never get back up.
Somehow I made it home and did some Sun Salutation B (Surya Namaskar) for some energy. The video is fast, so you can't really see that I fall over onto the wall. Transitioning back to reality mode is hard work!

Who’s over the hate and decisiveness? 🙋🏾♀️ Stay woke, but balance current affairs within the context of the bigger picture. We can’t control others, but how can we be a contribution in the areas of our life where we do have control? Seek deeper more meaningful connections, strive for equity, increase inclusiveness, and express endless compassion. ❤️

#throwback when I was blonder and I didn’t like to post pics like this unless I was in a yoga pose. Simple is beautiful too!
P.S. Thinking of going back to this color. 🤔

These are trying times for a lot of us. We are more than a month into the government shut down and at the tail end of the teacher’s strike.
If you are a government employee currently affected by the shut down OR a teacher who did not cross the picket line, we want to offer space for you to practice yoga without it being a source of financial anxiety. Come to class, show your valid government ID, and take class on us. Yoga is more than asana and sweat, it's an active philosophy we care to uplift.
'No One Compares to You' ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
'Ruin My Life' ⠀⠀
‘Don't Leave Me Alone' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
'Us' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
'Never Be The Same' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
'Only Want You' ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These are titles of "love" songs. Some of these sound like titles for horror flicks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have bad news and very good news. The bad news is that the entire of humanity has been confusing attachment for love.
We think we "need" outside validation or attachment to feel love in general. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bad news- Your automatic attachment style was set up when you were an infant. So that whole "you complete me" garbage is just pulling at the heartstrings of that little kid in you who feels powerless when alone, because at one point in your life, you kind of were. Because you literally couldn't walk or feed yourself yet. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simply put, it's falsely imposing our safety and security onto another person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It can be confusing because the people we learned to love first we also learned to attach to first. But the above titles aren't about love, it's all attachment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What brings you pain because it leaves doesn't mean its love. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What makes you feel better about yourself when you're with someone versus when you're single isn't love. It's attachment. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s liberating is that YOU CAN CHANGE THAT. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the good news. You can heal the things that caused any issues you have in your attachment style. The only thing stopping or allowing you is your belief and dedication to yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just another reminder that you have the ultimate power!! ☝🏼💫💪🏼

On the rocky dried riverbed
I knelt and surrendered
The way long forgotten
Yet still pulsing and breathing
It’s rhythmic remembrance
A language still spoken
By some ready to be used
Infused with the essence of ancient wisdom
Brought to life through
I traverse between worlds with an
So that I may
That which is restored
When the Great Forgetting is complete
When the dual becomes one
And gives Life like the Sun
Empty this vessel of all that does not serve
Fill me with Pure #UnconditionalLove
The kind our Ancestors embodied through
May the elements move through me
Earth’s grounding presence when
Air has lifted me to heights unknown
Water quenches the thirst ignited by
Fire’s sweet destruction of paradigms once known
I am the One in the All
The All in the One
I am One
I am All
- Marisol Tamez

We have this tendency to want to skip over the struggle. We, as humans, always want to be and appear perfect...I mean, I get it - struggling isn’t fun. But what if in the struggle is where you learn the most compassion, the most patience, the most resilience and strength? Would you then believe your struggle is necessary to your growth and ability to connect? I sure do. So maybe instead of fearing the struggle, you dive into it. The only way to get over it is to get through it. #humpdayfoodforthought

130 happy toes find their way, where the light glows... We packed it out this past Saturday! 13 stunning yogis took it to the mat for my “Go-Deeper” Home Practice. This is a special gathering I hold every Saturday at my place in Silverlake from 1:30-4p, where I give students the opportunity to truly take yoga beyond the body. We still do a 90 minute physical practice, but I incorporate an hours worth of chanting, breath-work, and meditation, that allows centers to become stronger, hearts to open, and spirits to fly. Slots have already started to fill up for this Saturday 1/26, but there are still plenty of spaces open. If you’d like to attend please send me a DM and I will forward you the address and further details. Don’t wait til last minute though! I almost had to turn people away last week! I’m always looking forward to having you share your practice and support others. See you on the mat. Jai! - Ben Das

Sometimes in the waves of change
we find our true direction. 🌊
📸 by @richardpodjr
The first step in our healing work is the creation of sacred space. The weaving of a luminous cocoon, where clients can finally take off their long-held psychological armor, and let down their guard.
In doing so we begin to realize that healing has always been waiting for us, just on the other side of surrender. There is a great deal of support around us, we just need to be open to receive it. You don’t have to do it all alone...

The super blood Wolf Moon was a turbulent period of time for me. I had nightmares, I witnessed emotional shifts in myself as well as life changes that were out of my control. These experiences, while strange and wondrous, were proof of my deepening connection to the Moon, a relationship that began in earnest just a few years ago when I was feeling anxious and looked to the moon as something constant yet ever evolving to help ground me. This has offered me galaxies of inspiration and eventually led me to develop a full moon healing ritual called Howl At The Moon.
We offered our first public Howl, a yoga and sound bath experience, on Monday evening at @lamaidainstitute to a packed house. My first request to everyone in the room was to meet the people around them in order to create space for vulnerability, and so their was lively discussion and laughter to begin our experience. Next we set intentions by reflecting on our strengths and how incredible we already are. Then we flowed through moon salutations before settling onto bolsters and blankets for the sound vibrational healing, and finally we stepped into the garden for moon bathing and of course we howled!
@mannaturereason I’m so thrilled to make this offering with you! Thank you for the sound bath! Thank you to all the beautiful souls who came with their laughter and love to form community with us. Our next Howl is February 19th! It will probably sell out once again, so be sure to grab your ticket at the early bird price as soon as you can. Link in bio! 🌝 🐺

How are you leaning into trust? Trust specifically with the universe. I am a person of “action” and want to “do” all the things I can to get to where I want to be. What I’ve discovered (thanks to some pretty incredible people...lookin at you @amberb4) is that yes, do all the things and continue to show up as you do, but then trust. Not all things are in your direct control and you need to believe the universe is on your side. Continue to visualize, manifest, and TRUST that your dreams will come true!! Have a beautiful day!! Namaste! 🙏🏼💚
If all girls were taught to love each other fiercely instead of how to compete with each other, what a different and beautiful world we would live in 💕
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -MLK Jr. This is one of my faaaavorite quotes from Dr. King, as it is ALWAYS relevant, and speaks to the way we show up everyday and the way we react to others. Love and light are SO powerful, and have the ability to spark so much goodness within. Choose love, choose light, and see the positive shifts happen! Namaste beautiful friends! Shine bright today! 🙏🏼💚

Yoga photo tip of the day:
You don’t need a fancy wall or backdrop, just walk down the street to get some dope shots. 📷: @deandreyoga
Sidenote: how many of you would freak out if you saw a random person in like wheel pose scurrying from one side of the street to other? I feel like yogis wouldn’t even be phased.. they’d be like damn, that’s a solid backbend with lots of strength & mobility. Everyone else would be like damn, that’s some exorcist shit.
