#accessibleyoga

This was my favorite tree outside of my window growing up. 🌿 My goal for the weekend "Don't think about work so much". Also me, "Ooo let me take a weekend to complete these   @yoga  _international course for yoga teachers for my clients and staff Wellness Committee"... Still finding balance. I think I've found that for me, at this point, service yoga or karma yoga, is what's for me, and at this point studio yoga is just not. Which is totally ok! 🌿 I'm hoping to offer yoga to staff at my organization starting in September. Another Therapist and I are in discussion about starting a kids yoga series for our clients (client yoga is currently being offered by one of my incredible yoga teacher training instructors) and I'm hoping to either expand yoga with the women's recovery center where I co-lead a domestic violence support group AND/OR at my Alma mater in the MSW department - SO beautiful things are coming. 🌿 I think I've felt uncomfortable with yoga teachers and studios in my community because I'm not making a living from yoga, and my goals, purpose is just different (not better just different). It pains me to see yoga costs, but yet folks are trying to make a living, but it makes me feel like 'who is this yoga really for...who can afford this?', but that's another conversation. I'm hoping that the more I follow my path with service yoga the more I will find connections with other Therapists and yoga teachers/students that align with me. 🌿 This tree always brings me back to my center. 🌲   #serviceyoga     #karmayoga     #communityyoga     #accessibleyoga     #traumasensitiveyoga     #msw     #mswstudent     #supportsurvivors     #womensrecovery     #yogaisforeverybody     #workplacewellness     #yogateacher     #treeoflife     #findyourpath     #yoga     #domesticviolencesurvivors     #communityhealing

➡️ Do you want to feel more relaxed? ➡️ Do you want more clarity in your day? ➡️ Do you want to move with ease? ⏯ Yoga provides these great benefits but starting is often daunting. The mind may argue...only flexible people do yoga, I don’t have time, classes are too costly.

Today’s dharma talk, balance. Balance by definition is “a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions.” Basically it’s not easy to find a level head especially with infectious laughter and joy, seen here.

🌺 As a self-proclaimed reforming perfectionist, this one took me some time to accept and embrace. ~ Once I did, I made strides in my practice in both Yoga and Pilates. My practice might esthetically look different than most because I allow my body to move with ease and I explore what's accessible for me that day, what tension and load feels challenging without the strain. That means my poses may not be "deep", but I can breathe with ease, feel the connection to the movement and I dont have to "unwind" what I did because I pushed too far. Does that last part sound familiar? ~ In teaching, I do my best to share these lessons with my students and at times I'm perplexed and awed by how difficult this is for most of us to accept and embrace. It's as if we are caught up in a loop of push/pull, beating our bodies up, saying how good it feels and then spending the other time trying to "stretch" and release what "good" we did. ~ So, the question is, can you find the value in the ease, and in the ease, find the challenge? ~~~~~ Here's something to explore; If you find yourself twisting, striving and efforting through your Yoga or Pilates practice, try giving yourself permission to maybe back off the effort by half, grab a prop if you need to create more accessibility and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised by what comes up for you. ~ Share your thoughts, questions or experience with this in the comments, love to hear from you.

DO THIS BEFORE YOU START YOUR 200 HOUR TEACHER TRAINING ⤵️ _ I’ve been teaching yoga for 25 years and I’ve noticed a disturbing changed in what teachers believe students are expecting from them. _ New yoga teachers feel pressure to change up their routine regularly, create more and more interesting sequences, find the perfect music, and weave their practice with poetry and purpose. _ It doesn’t have to be this hard, _ BEFORE you start your 200 hour yoga teacher training, you need to read my guide - Get in the GAP: a 3 Step Mindfulness Practice to Use Before Teaching Yoga. _ I’ll walk you through a three step process that I use to get grounded, pay attention and become present. _ Drop YES in the comments and I’ll send you a copy!

"When we stop struggling, we float.🌊 When first learning how to swim, I didn’t trust the deep. No matter how many assuring voices I heard from shore, I strained and flapped to keep my chin above the surface. It exhausted me, and only when exhausted did I relax enough to immerse myself to the point that i would feel the cradle of the deep keep me afloat. I’ve come to understand that this is the struggle we all replay between doubt and faith. When thrust into any situation over our head, our reflex is to fight with all our might, the terrible feeling that we are sinking. Yet the more we resist, the more we feel our own weight and wear ourselves out. This is very hard to do. But the essence of trust is believing you will be held up if you let go. And though we can practice relaxing our fear and meeting the deep, there is no real way to prepare for letting go other than to just let go. Once immersed, once below the surface, it is not by chance that things slow down, go clear, feel weightless. Perhaps faith is nothing more than taking the risk to rest below the surface. That we can’t stay there only affirms that we must choose the deep again and again in order to live fully. That we must move through the sense of sinking before being upheld is what trusting the Universe is all about." -Mark nepo . . It amazing to see how many people resonated with my last post about rest. I felt like this quote goes along with the conversation. Learning how to trust rest and allowing ourselves to float. 🌎🌊✨ . . . . .   #marknepo     #restorativeyoga     #rest     #annapolisyoga     #annapolisblogger     #trusttheprocess     #omshanti     #yogaforall     #accessibleyoga     #raiseyourvibration     #elevatetheglobe     #bodylove     #loveeveryday     #meditation     #mindfulliving     #mindbodysoul     #heartwork     #moveandmeditate

We are so excited! Sign up online - click the link in our bio. ••• 🌟Wall Bakasana🌟 ••• This is one of my favorite ways to teach bakasana. The first version is keeping the buttocks on the wall as another point of contact for support, then placing one foot on the wall followed by the other. 🌟 The next version is taking the buttocks away from the wall and supporting the feet on the wall. 🌟 The third version is to start with your feet on the wall and then to flex the feet to take them off the wall. 🌟 . . . . . . . .   #bakasana     #wallyoga     #crow     #crowpose     #yogatips     #yogatutorial     #instayoga     #yogavideo     #armbalance     #armbalanceaddict     #bakasanapose     #bakasanavariation     #accessibleyoga     #whatayogilookslike     #yogaforall     #yogaparatodos     #yogaparatodosloscuerpos     #yogastrong     #amazing     #propadocious     #proptastic     #yogawithprops     #yogaprops     #propparty

To be honest, in my own experience, the biggest problem has never been the partial loss of my vision, but what this disability was involving. I think that we are speaking about handicap. We are speaking about how a disability impact a live and how people are dealing with their issues. We are speaking about individual stories. We are speaking about disabled persons as they are experiencing something different. We are considering the handicap from the perspective of the personal experience. And I do not agree with that. In my opinion it’s the best way to associate to word handicap to an individual story. And what is an individual story is obviously an individual problem. Disability is a political issue. Handicap ask the question of how, as a society we want to live our sense of community. The question behind disability is simply : how do we want to live in our community ? How do we want to build this community ? 🌱   #accessibilityforall     #accessibilitymatters     #accessibility     #disabilityinclusion
