The Goal of Yoga💭
No, it’s not the Handstand.❌
The yoga pose is not the goal. Becoming flexible is not the goal. Standing on your hands is not the goal.❌
The goal is to create space where you were once stuck. To unveil the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart. ‼️
To appreciate your body and become aware of the mind and the noise it creates. ‼️
To make peace with who you are. The goal is to love, well…YOU.💯
Come to your yoga mat to feel; not to accomplish. Shift your focus and your heart will grow. ‼️
Чтобы получить любовь❤️ нужно научиться её отдавать. 🤲🏻
Ты хочешь быть любимым(ой)? Отдавай всего себя не ожидая ничего взамен.
Умей прощать и понимать друг друга, прислушивайся. ☝🏻
Попытайся научиться любить так,
как любит Тебя Бог! 🙏🏻
Никогда не разговаривала здесь на такие темы, считаю, что очень банально писать о том, что должно быть только у двоих сердец, но просто люди забывают,
что этим ❌не гордятся, ❌любовь не мыслит зла, ❌не завидует,
Она верит и никогда не предаст! 💯
Today & everyday we have a choice.... •
Embrace the day, FEEL the snow on our faces, the cold breeze on our nose, the ice on the sidewalk, hear the crunch of the snow & smell the winter ❄️ •
For a long time, I didn’t feel much! I numbed myself, not at all mindful of the beauty of every single day. •
Today I’m choosing to be mindful & feel the snow on my face, hear the crunch of the snow & taste some snowflakes ♥️

Yoga begins right where I am; not where I was yesterday or where I long to be tomorrow
When practicing yoga, so many of us are always longing for progress in terms of that handstand or flexibility. But yoga isn’t about that. It’s about creating space where you are stuck; about unveiling the layers of protection you’ve built around your heart
So depending on what’s happening in your heart TODAY, your yoga practice will be different than the one from yesterday or tomorrow
Meet your body where it is today and read the signs from the heart. Come to your yoga mat to feel; not to accomplish ✨ •

Marching together along the South Georgia shoreline, king penguins head out to sea to find food for their hungry chicks. Just as human communities offer benefits to members, like support and social interaction, penguin colonies can be good for individual birds. There can be safety in numbers, along with shelter from harsh conditions, both of which can help the birds survive.
I remember first discovering when I was in a boys body. Before that discovery everything and everybody appeared to be the same, I observed I was and we were all beings. In that discovery I started to hear stories about how boys were different, and how men were different. I started to hear adults warn the girls to stay away from the boys, I was confused.
Growing up I heard stories in the Media and my community of men being violent, raping, killing, being abusive, going to war, going to work. Showing emotions wasn’t really an option because it wasn’t socially acceptable to the gender of boys, men, male or masculinity. I was fucking scared.
I came to learn that because I was in a masculine body I felt I had to act accordingly to the constructs in place at the time I existed. The stories and information out there started to infiltrate my little nervous system, and the perceptions of my self and others re-enforced those values. I am a #Man I thought. My thoughts drove my #emotions which drove my behaviours.
Something didn’t #feel right about this. I watched and observed how this affected myself, my relationships and the #world around me. I wasn’t ok. I am not ok. My first suicidal ideation was at the age of 6 or 7 - not wanting to be here. “If this is life” I thought, “I don’t want to be here.” This was carried through all my life. My perception of how I thought I was to show up as a Man or Masculine and how I was perceived to show up as Man was very confusing and became very destructive.
Lately I’ve been letting go of my identities and grieving them as they are not serving me and my higher purpose anymore. One of those identities is being a Man or Masculine.
Identifying as a Man or Masculine in any and all sense has contributed to major disharmony in my body. My immune system (my #consciousness) hasn’t agreed with this identity or label and I have been so scared to let go of its hold on me.
I am preparing to let go of all #gender identities. In exploring letting go of these identities, I am experiencing an extra-ordinary sense of freedom.
Simple life. I am a Being. Human form.
