for me, one of the hardest things to remember is to not skip steps along the process. to resist the urge to jump ahead.
one of my favorite things my dad has ever said to me is “everything that starts fast ends fast”. these six words often ring true when it comes to a movement practice, it is easy to feel inspired by something or someone and jump straight into the action with no reservations for your current self. true mastery over anything takes time, allowing yourself to be involved in each step of the process helps you create a home within yourself that can support growth. all of the madness in the video started somewhere simple, and some days the pieces fit together nicely, others they require a bit more finesse. but no matter which it is, embracing the process always keeps me coming back for more.
it’s all about the details! whenever practicing anything try to focus on the little things, it is so easy to get caught up in a pattern of “just getting the work in” but to make progress quality is key. focus on your best quality efforts each time and your movements will be more meaningful ✌🏼🙏🏼 #handstand#yogaflow#yogavideo#yogatips#yogis
my favorite bit about this video is that it is imperfect, a work in progress if you will. there are little pieces where the slightest shift of pattern could make a world of difference in the movements being fluid and smooth but for now this is it. there is something to appreciate about learning your own process of understanding anything. we all learn differently, we all apply our learnings in different ways, and continuing to learn is one of the greatest joys of this human experience! never stop hunting for new, your best days are always ahead of you ✌🏼😊 wearing @aloyoga #yogaflow#yogapractice#yogaposes#seattleyoga#movement
according to one of @carlingnicole’s special baby books our soon to be little monster is the size of a coconut! wild to witness all the changes not just in our life but in her evolution and personal (and literal) growth throughout this pregnancy. i feel lucky to be able to support her through this exciting time 😊🥥 #babydaddy 😂
was anyone else confused by daylight savings time this morning?! why is it still a thing? regardless of the silliness i am enjoying the longer hours of daylight this evening with a light practice in the waning hours of sun for today. happy to be kicking off the second part of our 300 hour teacher training this week with an amazing group of people 😊🙏🏼 #yogapose#sideplank#yogapractice
