I was sitting in the hotel lobby talking to this lovely old couple about what I do for a living. โ€œYou teach Yoga? What is that, just like stretching exercises?โ€ I went on to explain that the Yoga I teach (Rocket Yoga) is a little more than just stretching, and I explained how we get upside down a lot too.
โ €
Fast forward, itโ€™s an hour later, Iโ€™m chilling by the fire, and I see the same couple walk by. Whatโ€™s a Rocket Yogi to do?!? Handstand of course! The couple was quite entertained, and they joined me by the fire to learn more about this Rocket Yoga stuff. We made great conversation, and I made two new friends!
โ €
Iโ€™m grateful for the opportunities Iโ€™ve been blessed with to share my love of the practice with people of all backgrounds. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿš€

Pop quiz: name this beach!
Hint: itโ€™s a top 3 beach in the world for me (and the other 2 are just a few miles away).
One more hint: Iโ€™m hosting a Rocket Yoga retreat & training in May down the street from this beach.
Come handstand (or sandstand?) with us!
Pura Vida!

305x5 squat, 295x5 deadlift, and a 200lb dunk. Because itโ€™s not all yoga and breathing exercises. ๐Ÿ‹๏ธ
โ €
Actually, isnโ€™t this all yoga and breathing? In each exercise I was hyper focused on my breath and my bandhas. ๐Ÿง˜โ€โ™‚๏ธ
โ €
What do you think? What are your favorite โ€œnon-traditionalโ€ forms of yoga? For me, anything in the weight room is on the list, but my favorite yoga practice has to be body surfing. Thereโ€™s something so amazing about being alone in the ocean, with just my breath and mother nature, going with the flow. ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™‚๏ธ

โ€œWhat IS cold?โ€
This pond. This pond is cold.
โ €
Yesterday I attended a Wim Hof Method event in Boulder. We breathed together, meditated together, hiked up a mountain together, and at the end, we took a dip in 28 degree Boulder Creek. It was one of the most uncomfortable experiences in my life, and also one of the most liberating.
โ €
Fast forward to today, and Iโ€™m getting in a half-frozen pond down the street from my house. Why? Why not! If you havenโ€™t tried cold exposure, I highly recommend it. Mother Nature is a powerful force!
โ €
What are you waiting for? Go for it! I wanna see your cold exposure videos, @ tag me in your videos. Weโ€™re in this together!
โ €
Special thanks to @benthetravelcoach for holding my hand yesterday (we literally held hands the whole time under water). Thanks to Pavel @noaaonofficial for leading us yesterday. And of course, the biggest thanks to the man @iceman_hof for sharing his method with the world. I love the message and the mission.

Last week I posted a story asking โ€œwhat do you want to see more of on my page?โ€
โ €
The answers were overwhelmingly โ€œwhat kind of non-yoga workouts do you do?โ€ and โ€œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘โ€.
โ €
Welp. Got to give the people what they want. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
โ €
Here are some pause squats w/ 295lbs on my back. I like to squat low and pause at the bottom to appreciate life. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿค”
โ €
What do you think?
Comment โ€œ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธโ€ if you like to squat, or โ€œ๐Ÿ“โ€ if you prefer chicken legs.
โ €
Turn up the sound if you wanna hear the secret to strength that most Yogis are missing. (Hint: itโ€™s โ€œBIP!โ€ ๐Ÿคฌ)
