The first time I saw this posture I was awe-struck. Never in a million years did I think I would ever be strong enough to do it, let alone teach it!! I still remember sitting in Mysore at 5 am, waiting for my spot to practice, watching the more advanced group of students practice before me in the small room of Guruji's old shala in Lakshmipuram. Fifteen years later it is part of my daily practice and the journey into strength that Ashtanga Yoga has lead me on has taken me far beyond the limited notions of who I thought I was and lead me deep into the true limitless experience of the inner self. Work for your dreams every single day, never stop, never give up. Be humble, be kind to yourself and others while putting in the work. Drop all sense of entitlement and be willing to take the long road and let nothing be beneath you--do what needs to be done in service of your dreams, work tirelessly for it every day. Be strong.

Day 30 #letsgetflexy is Vrschikasana, Scorpion Handstand. The key to inverted backbends is to create length and space between the vertebrae and not squeeze or compress the back. Don't orient towards the goal of touching the feet to the head, instead focus on extending the spine and allow what wants to happen in the backbend to happen. Check my YouTube channel for full tutorials. Check @beachyogagirl for another option. My outfit is by @aloyoga Be sure to post the last two days of this challenge and check their account for daily winners 😊

Stretch your mind. Think outside the box of what you believe is possible. Yoga happens at the edge of your comfort zone, go in search of the outer limits of your mental and physical terrain. Expand your paradigm beyond what you already know, let your mind and heart be bigger than any obstacle, doubt or difficulty. This is a posture that I never thought I would be able to do. And since it's not part of my daily Ashtanga discipline I never really practiced it until recently. What posture do you think is absolutely impossible, far beyond the limits of of your possibility?

Day 29 #LetsGetFlexy is a Hollowack Pinchamayurasana. This asana isn’t part of the Ashtanga Yoga series so I just started practicing these recently thanks to the inspiration from @beahyogagirl and the IG yoga community. My shoulders have always been unstable so it’s amazing to work these postures that use both strength and flexibility beyond what I've tried before. I don’t feel that I’ve been doing them long enough to offer instruction, just inspiration. I know you're not supposed to plant the foot but it really helped me feel the openness through the shoulders. Definitely use a wall for support and feel welcome to do any variation of the hollow back shape. Check @beachyogagirl for more options.

Having "fun" in Vegas @cosmopolitan_lv 😉 So many people ask me if I drink alcohol, party, stay up late, what type of diet I follow, what time I go to bed, if I've given up being a "regular" person for yoga. I am still a "regular" person even though I don't drink more than a lemonade 😊 I love to dance, love dance music, deep house beats, love to sleep in, love chocolate and green juices and sweet potato fries and a good aioli, I've been vegetarian for 15 years and there is a lot to enjoy about this yoga lifestyle. I am not against alcohol or partying and anyone who knows me well knows that I've done more than my fair share of partying. But I haven't been drunk or had a drink in ages and honestly even when I was partying alcohol wasn't my top choice. There was a time that I tried very hard to cultivate a knowledge and taste for fine wines, but it just wasn't for me. I do remember one of the last times I was drunk, after having lots of champagne on a New Year's Eve all nighter. The feeling in my body the morning after was just not worth the feeling of being drunk the night before. The physical trade off just wasn't worth it. My yoga teacher never forced the yogic values on anyone, he always said that the practice itself changes you over many years until the feeling of peace and tranquility that comes from a disciplined daily practice is worth more than any temporary fleeting sensory pleasure. I'm high in life, drunk on love, having fun being my regular, authentic self. Photo by @agpadovani Outfit by @lalalandcomfywear

I love this endlessly - the last few lines especially. I too am finding what your teacher suggested - that maybe not initially was I looking for these changes in my lifestyle, but as I continue my practice deeper into my self, I find myself craving for a clean body and mind. and blech I never really cared for the feeling of being drunk! :p @kinoyoga

Day 28 #LetsGetFlexy is Handstand Splits, Urdhva Hasta Hanumanasana. Keep the shoulders stacked over the palms, point your toes, engage the quads, create space through your back and keep the mind steady and calm. Be sure to open up your back and your split before you attempt to split inverted. And if it's just not happening from handstand try the open legs position in any inversion. Check @beachyogagirl for an easier option. My outfit is by @aloyoga Check their account for daily winners!!!

Every student of yoga, every person at some moment or another experiences doubt. Doubt can feel like a bomb shelter wall that you cannot blast through no matter how hard you try. Doubt is a stated obstacle on the spiritual path and when you feel it you are right on the verge of something big. You might find yourself doubting the method, the style, your teacher, your body, your mind, your home, your job, your everything. For me, doubt is always personal, the crippling self-doubt that is never so much about the method that i practice, but always intensely personal and therefore also totally rooted in my own ego. Ever since I met Guruji and Sharath in Mysore for the first time I have never doubted the efficacy of the Ashtanga Yoga method, that was one of Guruji's many gifts to me. But there have been many times both in practice and in my life that I have doubted myself.... I thought my arms were too short, my butt was too big, my thighs too thick, that I was too small, not the right shape, not pretty enough, not intelligent enough, that no one would want me, that there was no space for me, that I would fail, that I started yoga too late, that no matter how hard I tried I would not shift what felt like a thick brick wall standing before me. But now after 15 years of practice this is what I have to say to that brick wall of doubt that I beat my head up against for so long: you don't exist anywhere but in my mind, when I meet you next I will no longer fight because there is no need to fight, you will not break me because I bend and I do not break, I will rise up and meet you and through the grace of God I will walk straight through you with the fierce strength of peace and equanimity.

Day 27 #LetsGetFlexy is Bhekasana, Frog Posture. This is one of those postures that looks like it shouldn't be possible but with healthy technique and alignment it is both safe and possible. Use the internal rotation of your hips to make space for the knees. If you feel pain in the knees stop because it means the hips are not opening and the quads are tight. Check my YouTube channel for full tutorial. Check @beachyogagirl for a beginner option. My outfit us by @aloyoga Check their page for daily winner 😊

Let your light shine brightly and purely from your heart. Do what brings you joy even if no one else understands it. Don't be afraid to push the boundaries a little and explore the outer limits of what's possible. When you shine with happiness you become your own sun. Don't let anyone talk you out of being true to yourself. Photo by @agpadovani Leggings by @dharmabumsactive Top by @beyondyoga

Hitting a jackpot at the yoga friendly @cosmopolitan_lv in Las Vegas🎲 Not only did the nice floor manager let us have some fun at the slot machines, but we also got a few pics in front of the black jack table and at the pool deck with a gorgeous view of the strip at sunset. All the local Vegas peeps said that the @cosmopolitan_lv was the cooler place to go and while I don't hold it against the @bellagio for giving us the boot, I have to say that it did feel nice to have a warmers welcome here.

I work @ Cosmo and I was at all four of your workshops!!!
This is the handstand that got me kicked out of the @bellagio last night in Vegas!! Two big oversized security guys came up brusquely and escorted us out, walked with us through the hotel all the way to where we parked 😳 @agpadovani got this pic just in time. What do you think? Are my handstands too wild for Vegas? Surely I thought this city would have seen something more crazy than me upside down in the lobby of this iconic hotel!! Or is that they're afraid of yoga because if people really practice they won't drink, gamble and party like a pack of mad dogs? Stay tuned for some pics from a different yoga friendly hotel 😊

Day 26 #LetsGetFlexy with special guests @timfeldmannyoga and Neffie the cat. Our cat loves to hang out with us on the yoga mat!! I can't do this handstand without support yet, so if you're like me you will need the wall or someone strong to lean on. It feels a little scary to drop the hips towards the wall and open the shoulders but if you have a stable handstand and a good backbend you'll be ok. Have someone spot you if you're hesitant.

Day 25 #LetsGetFlexy is Natarajasana, Shiva as Lord of the Dance. There are so am any variations of this posture so that you can always make it easier or much more difficult. The foundation of Natajasana comes from good balance through the standing leg, open hips for deep splits, flexible shoulders and a spinal extension. To go for one if the more difficult variations feels like combining all these aspects together for a grand crescendo. I am still working on getting my back leg totally straight. Check @beachyogagirl for a more beginner option. My outfit is by @aloyoga Check their account for daily winners of their Goddess leggings.

Sometimes you have to be strong enough to stand up for something you believe in, even if it means that it might upset some people. There is a fine balance between being kind and compassionate with your speech and honoring your truth. Take the time to reflect before you share and if it means enough to you, then be brave and share your truth with a calm equanimous mind and a kind heart. But don't back down just because someone thinks you should or shouldn't do this or that. If I backed down every time someone told me that I shouldn't do something I would not be where I am today. When I produced my first DVD people doubted me, when I wrote my first book people said that I wouldn't find a publisher, when I started sharing videos and pics on social media people said that maybe I should keep my yoga more private and introspective and of course people say that I should wear more clothes. Thanks to these people for their opposing comments because it made me reflect and look within myself to be sure what I wanted to do is authentic and purely me, not some other dogma or preconceived idea. Sometimes it is through contrast that we get clear on who we truly are. What is the dream that you want to pursue but when you share it people doubt you? Let their doubt make you stronger, more clear, more powerful, more determined, more compassionate and more authentic. How strong do you need to be? Strong enough to believe in your dreams even if you are the only one who believes. 🌟 Photo taken on beautiful Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, on the way to Vegas now to teach at Yoga Sanctuary 😊
