The sweetness of coming home. That feeling of elation when you see the same old neighbourhood streets you had seen a million times before, and realize how much you have missed them. That deep sense of gratitude for all the familiar people, places and things that make up the feeling of being #home. No doubt this enlivened state of appreciation will fade away with time, but for now we’re happily revelling in the magic of it all and refuse to take anything for granted. H.

Life can be a slippery slope. Our job is to find equilibrium and run up that hill!👊🏼😉

It’s impossible to describe this place, it has to be experienced... and once you do, and feel the essence of Chomolungma, her divine grace touches your heart forever. So long Himalaya... until we meet again.🙏🏼H+C+S

After 10 months of traveling, we’re finally heading back home to Australia for a few weeks of downtime, rest and reset. Life on the road is exciting and we feel so blessed to be able to do what we do, but we also need a healthy dose of grounding. As in everything else in life, it’s all about finding balance. We’re coming for you #homesweethome #sydney #downunder 🌏

We made it!🏔#EverestBaseCamp
What a journey! It wasn’t without its challenges, but that’s all part of the adventure. It’s my second time here after seven years and the feeling is just as overwhelming as I remembered it. Having guided a stellar group of truth seekers on their journey of Self-discovery to meet the Mother Goddess of the world makes it so much more special this time around. Well done everybody, proud of every single one of you! And yes, I am playing air guitar at 5,380m/17,650ft!😉 Thank you #Chomolungma for receiving us so sweetly and giving us your blessings.🙏🏼H.

Ever wondered what this mudra represents? I dedicated a whole class to Jnana mudra in my new series on @alo.moves (link in bio). Most meditators are familiar with this mudra, but only a few understand its meaning and function. Jnana mudra is the mudra of knowledge/wisdom. The name comes from the Sanskrit jnana meaning "knowledge" and mudra meaning "gesture.” Created by placing the tips of the thumb and the index together to form a circle with the palms usually facing up in seated meditation. The thumb represents universal consciousness (Brahman), while the index finger represents individual consciousness (Atman). Those two coming together express the unity (yoga) of our universal and individual Self resulting in the transcendence (going beyond) of our thinking mind... not oneness but rather the unity of two. The other three fingers represent the three elements that give rise to manifest reality: middle finger (Brahma/creator), ring finger (Vishnu/maintenance operator) and pinkie (Shiva/destruction operator). This mudra stimulates an opening effect, allowing for a process of receiving from the divine source of Nature’s intelligence. I like to bring this mudra not only into meditation, but also into movement based asana practice as a point of focus on balance and harmony. In this mirrored expression you see in the pic, we intend to bring equanimity to both inner and outer realms of our being. Give it a try next time you practice👌🏼 H.

Midday med at 17,000 feet surrounded by 6 of the 8 highest mountains in the world. 🏔 Feeling the majestic beauty of Mother Nature pulsate right through me. Magic lives here. H. #highlymeditated #ommanipadmehum #beyondbasecamp

I’m super excited about the release of my 6 class series RENEW on @alo.moves! It’s inspired by my home practice and revolves around visualization, asana practice, pranayama and meditation. I also touch on mudras, drishti and explore the relationship between the inner vs outer landscape of our mind and body. Check out alomov.es/renew👆🏼and lemme know your thoughts...🙏🏼H.
