#TBT to last summer when we freaked everyone out with this snap of @sofiephoenix learning how to fly. And before you get tempted to call the police and tell us about parental responsibilities, please understand that we are very deliberate and discerning in our parental choices. More about that in our upcoming announcement about something VERY EXCITING!

Thank you @aumrudrakshadesigns for gifting every one of our trainees a beautiful rudraksha mala. We’d love to dedicate this post to Soma, the founder, and her team for doing so much good in the world. Considering all the drama that has gripped the social media world of yoga in recent times, we’d like to mention that we’re not sponsored by this company. We simply want to raise awareness about a good cause.
More than 20 years ago in India, well known teacher Papaji told Soma that because she lived so close to the source of the highest quality Rudraksha beads in the world, her Dharma (destiny) was to spread them to the western world. Already used for centuries by hindus and buddhists, Papaji believed that because of the pure power of the Rudrakshas themselves, “The world would be at peace if everyone was wearing them.” Soma took Papaji's message literally and her and her team are doing what they can to spread these sacred objects wherever they can. Their message is simple and powerful... “We as human beings and as a company are dedicated to living in awareness and truth. Our main goal is to encourage peace and love amongst all the people of this world. A strong message of ours is "sharing is caring" and that what we do in this life impacts our eternal karma. With this message in mind we are happy to be able to share 20% of our profits with those that we feel need it most. We are an eco friendly and sustainable company based on the principal that we are all ONE energy and that we all need to look out for our Mother Earth and for one another.”
Hey IG fam! After a very restful day of silence called #nyepi (1st day of Balinese New Year with no lights, no internet and no activity), we woke up to a barrage of messages urging us to respond to an article on elephantjournal.com, which mentions our insta account amongst many others. It’s actually quite surreal to be here in beautiful Padangbai-Bali in an immersive teacher training experience, guiding trainees through an inward journey of self-discovery, and all of a sudden be urged to respond to an article that has literally nothing to do with us other than an association with a clothing brand. We understand that what we are about to say is not directly addressing the content of the article and may sound inconsiderate on our part. We certainly wouldn’t want to come across as disrespectful to anyone’s personal situation that is no doubt very real to them, but as we look at the myriad of global challenges that we as #onepeople face today, it seems pretty obvious that there are much bigger issues that we all need to bring our attention to. We’re happy to wear funky yoga apparel and teach online yoga classes, but we’re not interested in taking sides and commenting on who says what about you know who in any online feud that may currently be unfolding. In all honesty, we’d much rather channel our energy in a very different direction. Our mission is to inspire, educate and use our voice to unify, not to divide; to co-create, not to compete; to elevate, not to weigh down. In short, we want to do our part in making sure that our children can have a sustainable and exciting future on this beautiful planet we all call home. With love, H&C+S
🥪 #ybsandwichhalloffame @adamwhitingyoga you are an all around kickass human and we love ya like a brotha from another motha! Thank you for joining our 200hr YTT facilitation team and sharing your wisdom and laughter for the past couple of weeks.

@SofiePhoenix is ready! Are you ready to join us on an epic adventure? Life has given us a few lemons in recent times, so we’ve decided to juice them out and make a yummy lemonade. There can never be enough to quelch our thirst for life, but we’re not going to waste a single drop of it! Can’t wait to take you with us on a journey of Self-discovery into the very heart of who we are and why we are here. Intrigued? Stay tuned for more announcements over the next two weeks...
People often ask us about the good ole six pack; as if it were some holy grail that fulfills life’s purpose. What’s even funnier is that it doesn’t matter how many times we say that core strength and a six pack are two different things, most people nod as if they understood and then ask: “But how do I get that six pack?” So then we just say: “It’s easy, quit your gym membership and start making babies!” Seriously, who needs weights when you have a growing toddler - the older they get, the stronger you get! @SofiePhoenix is getting sooo BIG! #10kg#22lbs
