That is one heckuvah shoulder opener, right? . . repost @martamwitecka . . Jumping on my friend on the photo while today, diving into these words and thinking about great saints and the great depth of our collective being and how amazing it would be to be able to love everybody 😌: ✨ . "Dada once said to me, "I'm closer to Maharaj-ji when I'm away from him than when I'm with him. Because when I'm with him, my senses get in the way. I get lost in enjoying being with him. When Dada says, "He's just Baba," that really says it all. Dada was totally blown away; he was full of awe. Dada was as close as you could get to knowing Maharaj-ji, and yet his awe kept him from becoming Maharaj-ji, from doing the final thing that would have let him merge. It's like the bhakta Hanuman, who tells Rām he'd rather remain a loving servant than sit with him." . #belovenow . Fot. @projectonphotography . .
AcroYogis getting some serious air time at the original muscle beach in Santa Monica. @jasonnemer making friends with some high level basket tossers during the LA teacher training. At the teacher trainings we teach about many aspects of safety; physical and emotional. We work on how to communicate and listen, how to trust and how to say no. This practice will always offer you new bonus levels of skills to attempt and human qualities to refine and deepen. There is still room in our bilingual Mexico teacher training should you want to dive deep and fly high!!! #acroyogateachertraining#ayitt#moveconnectplay#trust#play#doubletuck#cheerleading#sportsacro
That balance. Those smiles. . . repost @diacuicoutinho . . É tão difícil falar, é tão difícil dizer coisas que não podem ser ditas, é tão silencioso. Como traduzir o profundo silêncio do encontro entre duas almas? É dificílimo contar: nós estávamos nos olhando fixamente, e assim ficamos por uns instantes. Éramos um só ser. Esses momentos são o meu segredo. Houve o que se chama de comunhão perfeita. Eu chamo isso de: estado agudo de felicidade. Clarice Lispector Foto 📸 @mateusregefoto . .
Good Coaching. Do you practice it? . repost @pascal_weis . SUPPORT. AUTHENTICITY. . What I value in my practice is what I value in my life. I truly believe, that the way you show up in your practice, whatever practice it is, is the way you show up in your life. . If you are impatient and harsh on the mat...changes are you are in your relationships off the matt. If you find it hard to set boundaries or celebrate the small victories in your work environment, chances are, you will find these patterns in your acroyoga practice. . Today in teacher training we spoke about „courage“ and the qualities of a good coach. For me personally, a good coach is someone that inspires you to take risks and has the tools to make you walk out of the session feeling stronger then you walked in, both physically and emotionally!
A good coach does not unlock your patterns, he can give you the key to unlock them yourself! . And this is why I love this picture: An egyptian woman, living in Bali is basing together with an englishman living in Japan a flyer from Canada, supported by a polish & american spotter...at the beach in Greece 🇬🇷 . 5 people, 5 nationalities, full-support! . This teacher training is five days old and such a strong reminder what the acroyoga practice is about: supporting humans through play! . The amount of receptivity, compassion and emotional intelligence in this group is inspiring and I can‘t wait to teach together with them at the Acrofest in Athens on the 8th and 9th this week! . Have the courage to look at your practice and see how it reflects your daily life and relationship patterns. And then have the courage to change your practice, so it will change your interactions off the matt. . You can‘t hide who you are, especially not in an acrobatic environment, outside of your comfort zone...so you might as well be authentic 🤙 . Thank you @theacrocaveman@sarahyassin_@tomaszpacanacroyoga Thom and Melissa for embodying so many values and qualities that I truly admire! . #acroyoga#level2#greece🇬🇷 #teachertraining#acroyogafun#acroyogalove#doublebase#ladybase#movementculture#acroyogalife#moveconnectplay#moveom#sunshinehouse
