"Time Off is Time Well Spent" Has someone ever told you this?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This didn't resonate at all with me a couple of years ago. I've always worked my tail off to achieve my goals and the thought of taking time for me... well, let's just say I wasn't a fan. But I've come to realize that it's quite necessary. We all need time off. To recharge. To re energize. To think clearly. To spend it with the ones we love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you're thinking "who's got the time for this?", you do! Take 5, 10 or 20 minutes of your day to slow down. It makes a BIG difference 🙌
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who's up to try it this weekend?

Inversions and arm balances are about strength, right? WRONG!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I see a lot of yogis assuming that they have to work on their strength before they can tackle going upside down. But really, the thing to conquer is your mind 🧠 It's easy for your mental chatter to start going off about all the things that can go wrong. So focus on what you can get right.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Trust yourself. You got this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What inversion will you try out this weekend?

It’s almost the end of the week and I bet your body could use a little pick me up 🙈 #amiright
If that’s the case, I’m so happy to share with all you a short but very useful flow that will leave you feeling balanced and good.
In this class, I’m going to show you my favorite yoga stretches. These are stretches that I do personally almost every single day anywhere that I can. I’ll do them with my kids around or seated anywhere that I can find space 😂 Actually, I filmed this class in my house which goes to show that practicing yoga at home is not only doable, but it gives you the ability to get creative 🤩

You can practice with me for free by tuning to my Portal. Just click the link on the bio and use my code “wellnesswithbriohny” to get started ✌️ Fyi, this flow is beginner friendly!

After a quick trip to Hong Kong to see the lovely @gaileofficial (a surprise is coming next week!), I'm back in China with my family 🤩 And guess who just joined the #igfam???? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hint: It's @sydyogakid!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We'll be teaching at Xiamen this week. Did you catch Syd's adjusting on my stories?? We are training him young 😂

This past year, I've been really invested in creating content for you. One of the things that makes me the happiest is to share my knowledge. And seeing your reaction to what I have to give has been incredible. You've filled me with inspiration and creativity. And you've motivated me to up my game. I want to keep giving and I want to keep creating. Which is why I'm super excited to announce that I am joining Portal!! 🎉

#FunFact Did you know that my Grandmother was from China? A large population of Thai people are part Chinese actually!
So, getting back to my roots is definitely one of the many perks of my trip. And... did I mention my mom is here with me??? Having three generations together fills my heart with gratitude and joy, family is everything to me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What are you grateful for today?

Is there a better way to spend your weekend than doing yoga, dancing and having fun? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s been a week since the @wanderlustfest season ended and I’m still filled with joy, gratitude and excitement. This year, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to be a part of their teacher line-up for 10 events and I’ve got to say it’s been such a fun way to spend my weekends. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's always exciting to travel and share your passion for yoga with so many people, the energy and excitement is so contagious you can't help but smile. Special thanks to Wanderlust for letting me be a part of these amazing experiences 🙏 And to all the yogis that came to Raleigh, Scottsdale, Squaw Valley, Whistler, Tremblant, Toronto and Tampa, a big THANK YOU to all of you 💕
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you couldn't make it to the season, that's ok. This weekend, take 5 minutes, put some music on and let's have a yoga dance party 😜 Or maybe start today! It’s always a good time to start having fun. Who's in??

Once upon a time, I shied away from social media. I didn't see the value of it but more importantly, I was fearful. It was pretty daunting for me to record myself, talking about what I think and feel; I didn't want to get judged and I felt insecure.
And that's when @virginie.duval set me straight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
She taught me that the purpose of social media is to connect with others and to cultivate a community. She helped me see how powerful it can be and how it connected with my goal of helping others. And my world opened up to something amazing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I truly enjoy creating content for you. The whole process inspires me and unleashes my creativity, and it's such a powerful connection because everything I make was suggested by you. All the tutorials and blabs came from our conversations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm so proud of what we've created together and I'm looking forward to keeping the conversation going. So keep talking because I'm listening! I'm always here for you ✌️What should we create next?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉Wearing so many outfits from @aloyoga 😂 Special thanks to @drishti_videography for the amazing video

I'm off to China with this guy 💕 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Traveling with my kids is one of my greatest joys and although Taylor couldn't join us on this one, I'm grateful to have the opportunity to show both of them the beautiful world we live in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'll be teaching these next 2 weeks and I'm excited to get to meet new yogis across the globe.. while spending time with my son. He is growing up so fast and I want to make this "alone" time fun and exciting for him. Any thoughts on what activities we should join in while we are here?? Would love some tips!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Some #yogaposes look impossible but let me tell you, everything is possible 😎
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm really into breaking down how I achieve certain poses you see in my pictures. Recently, I shared my secret to the one-armed "hairstand" with @aloyoga and today I want to break down the Standing Split.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, how do I deepen a standing split? This is my go to move for my practice and specially for taking pictures 📸
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How I do it: 🔻Bend your knees, little bend on the left and big bend on the right
🔻Grab your left ankle and pull the torso, lengthening it over your left thigh
🔻Grab your left ankle with your left hand and pull your forehead in, straightening your left leg first 🔻Then, reach up through your right knee and reach high as you straighten your left leg
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How did you do? Send me your pictures or questions, would love to help out 🤗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡 In case you were wondering, you can find this flow at @alo.moves under the Fluid Flexibility Flows program

This past weekend, I was in Florida for my last festival of the year. I had planned to share a post celebrating an amazing year of teaching when I heard about the terrible tragedy that happened on Friday night, of two lives lost at a yoga studio shooting. My heart goes out to the families of the victims of Hot Yoga Tallahassee and I join the world in wishing the survivors a speedy recovery.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And although I normally don’t make this type of posts, I knew I had to add my voice to those of the yoga community. In times like this, it's important that we continue to stand together and support each other. Sending much love to everyone ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
