  • When you're in the midst of a tense situation, the stress can seem like a drumbeat that drowns out everything, including any feelings of peace.💥
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meditation opens you to a profound truth that the deepest part of you already knows: no matter what occurs – stress at work, fights with your loved ones, even death → your essence remains untarnished and eternal. ← Nothing can harm you, not really, and there is nothing to fear. And in the absence of fear lies only peace.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When you have this baseline of peace through meditation, you stop yearning for the carefree days of the past, or terrifying yourself with imagined worst-case scenarios in the future. Your eyes are open to the gifts of the present, no matter what chaos may be swirling around you, and you feel deep gratitude for the sheer fact that your heart is beating.

  • Balance... Ich habe mir mal vorgestellt, wie eine Seiltänzerin die Balance zwischen Arbeit und Freizeit zu halten. Der Begriff Life-Work Balance lädt zu solch einem Bild ein... Besser finde ich persönlich Life Balance. Wenn du fest verwurzelt bist, wie ein Baum, die Nahrung aus dem Boden erhälst, deinen Fokus hältst, kleine Unebenheiten und Windstöße aus der Kraft deiner Mitte abfangen kannst, dann kannst du in die Höhe wachsen, dich öffnen für das Unbekannte, blühen und Früchte tragen... Deine Balance passt sich dem Leben flexibel immer wieder an, verändert mal die Form... Zu unserem Leben gehört ja viel mehr als Freizeit und Arbeit. Und umso mehr kleine Anker, Wurzeln da sind, umso stabiler können wir stehen. Wie sieht dein Baum aus? #flowintoo #fityoga #balance #flow #trust #grow #positivepsychology #mindset #nature #lovenature #vrksasana

  • Essa geralmente é a primeira pergunta de quem começa a se interessar por Ayurveda “Será que sou Vata, Pitta ou Kapha?”, você já deve ter questionado, se referindo à sua Prakriti, que é nossa essência, e assim como o dna, define nosso biotipo, tendências e traços de personalidade.
.
É uma dúvida natural, já que dosha é o que mais se fala quando o assunto é Ayurveda, mas a questão é que saber sua Prakriti não é um ponto fundamental para uma vida equilibrada de acordo com os princípios do Ayurveda, na verdade é muito mais importante aprender a observar e reconhecer seus desequilíbrios (vikriti).
Descobrir sua prakriti vai muito além de um questionário ou mesmo uma consulta com o terapeuta, é uma jornada de auto conhecimento.
.
Algumas pessoas tem uma prakriti bem definida e que se apresenta de maneira explícita, aqueles que de bater o olho já podemos supor quase sem erro, mas em outros casos isso não é tão simples, não se trata de uma ciência exata, requer observação, atenção e paciência, e muitas vezes dependendo do grau de desequilíbrio pode ser uma tarefa bem confusa para um aspirante ou iniciante.
.
Mas o que quero transmitir com esse post é: Não fique preso a isso, aprenda a observar seu corpo, seu metabolismo, comece a perceber o que é natural pra você de verdade e o que já se tornou normose, conhecer a si mesmo e entender as reações de seu corpo tem muito mais a ver com Ayurveda do que seguir dietas que se dizem ayurvédicas porque são feitas para dosha A ou B.
.
Ayurveda não é esse conjunto de dogmas que muita gente repete sem entender.

  • Last week of Mercury Retrograde but we’ll feel the shadow period until April 17th. Tread softly 
Mercury Retrograde March 5th-April 17th 2019. Expect hiccups,blasts from the past,clarity and realizations that you once were unaware of. This is the time to re-evaluate, renovate, re-form, and re-invent yourself and your ideas. 
Because of Pisces ,Neptune and Chiron placement this will be a heavy transit full of possible arguments,online bullying or slander of your name. Try to avoid arguments. This is a good one for artists or musicians because we are naturally expressive and this time will give us an outlet to convey our feelings through pieces.

Don’t believe the hype,don’t worry about what people say about you. Haters always hate. Let the universe display the weak links in your sphere and create space for your true self and dreams.

Mercury Retrograde Readings are $22.22 March 11- March 28 You’ll find out... What should you rethink? 
What should you redo?

What should you reconnect with?

What should you reevaluate ?

  • Great Rise, nobles! In the fight of woman empowerment, many new age liberalistic black feminists indirectly and sometimes directly label black men as the villain in our struggle. Patriarchy and toxic black masculinity has long been an issue in the world of black women’s oppression, however, the black man is not and cannot be our enemy! Accountable should exist on both side of the gender spectrum. We love you black men! #Duality #Balance #BWS

  • My GO-TO 6 ingredient lunch!!
-
I always used to just have a sandwich for lunch, and honestly if that works for you that’s fab, but for me I just always felt groggy and bloated. So I decided to start cooking fresh meals, and over the course of a couple weeks I perfected my ideal meal - cheesy creamy chicken pasta🍗
-
I started just wanting to cook more fresh, nutrient-dense meals ensuring I had a bit of everything in them, and this is one dish I could eat over and over again and not get bored, it tastes so good and is still very healthy😍🙊
-
For those interested kcal averages around 500/550 and ingredients are;
✨chicken breast
✨vegetables (any you like but I tend to stick to greens; pepper, broccoli, kale, cabbage, sugar snaps)
✨grated Parmesan ✨light creme fraiche ✨almond milk
✨wholewheat pasta 
And then season with salt and pepper to taste!

  • Happy MONDAY. 
Wake up everyday with a grateful heart! You better believe i have a large coffee in my hand ready to conquer the day!
The work week is stressful because it seems like i have such little time. I usually wake up, go to class, go to work, then go home do my cardio and study, prep for tomorrow, and then go to bed ... Repeat everyday all week. Wellll....
I’m changing it up... I’m going to try to do minimum 20 minutes of fasted every morning to wake me up & get my day started so that after work i can try to go to bed semi early and relax. 
What is your routine?

  • I love the challenge of balancing asanas as they require from me exactly that balance between effort and ease so present in yoga. If I put too much effort on it I get tensed and exhausted easily. If I don't hold myself steady and firm I can't reach and sustain the posture...Just like life itself! -
Me encanta el desafío de las asanas de equilibrio, ya que requieren de mí exactamente ese equilibrio entre esfuerzo y facilidad. Si me esfuerzo demasiado, me pongo tensa y me agoto fácilmente. Si no me mantengo firme, no puedo alcanzar y mantener la postura ... ¡Como la vida misma!

  • LISTEN UP!

Right now is a time to be looking after YOU, YOU ARE NUMBER ONE!

Understand this! 
What do YOU need right now?

What would set YOUR heart aflutter and your soul on fire?

What would make you smile so brightly that everything was attracted to you and wanted to be YOU because you shone so brightly!

It does not need to be something big but it needs to be what YOU want. 
We spend our lives making everyone else happy. Give so much joy and happiness to others. Do what they want when they want, that we forget about OURSELVES.

Feed your own cup first then you will naturally overflow to others just by honouring you first.

It is not selfish it is SMART and it is BEAUTIFUL to reflect back on. 
Two days ago I arrived back in Bali. I slipped back here in silently because I wanted to have some me time. Time to fill my very own cup to overflowing again! I wanted to just be still and honour what I needed to do. I had such a need to come back so last weekend after some yummy family time, Neil and I booked a ticket. 
We had spent so much time the last few months connecting, loving, laughing, emerging ourselves with friends and family it was time to fill our cups so we could give back again organically and with everything we have

Life is about balance!

  • 🇩🇪🇬🇧Am Boden liegen kann ich😂
Heute habe ich mich mal wieder gedehnt, auf meinem Balanceboard rumgehampelt, Nacken und Rückenübungen gemacht. Habe ich früher überhaupt nicht gerne gemacht, aber ich mag das mittlerweile total. Ich merke, das ich nicht mehr so steif bin wie Oma👵 und ich surfe mit dem Ballanceboard nicht mehr durchs Wohnzimmer wie am Anfang. Ich habe jetzt schon wieder gelesen, wie sehr Gleichgewichtsübungen vor Stürzen schützen und ich will als fitte Oma fit stürzen, noch besser gar nicht😛. Mögt ihr das? Also nicht das Stürze, sondern die Übungen 🤪. Einmal die Woche mache ich das jetzt. 
Ansonsten ist der DPD Fuzzi immer noch nicht da mit meinen Hantelständern 🤪. Will aufbauen 😂.🙃
Euch einen guten Start in die Woche 🌷😘🙋
.
I can lie on the floor🤪😂
Today I stretched again, on my Balanceboard rumbled, neck and back exercises done. I did not like it at all in the past, but I really like it all by now. I notice that I am not as stiff as Grandma👵 and I surf with the Ballanceboard no longer through the living room as in the beginning. I have already read again how much balance exercises protect against falls and I want to fall as a fit grandmother, even better not at all😛. Do you like that? So not the falls, but the exercises 🤪. Once a week I do that now.
Otherwise, the DPD man is still not there with my barbell rack 🤪. Will build up 😂🙃
Have a good start to the week 🌷😘🙋

  • Good morning! Ahhh, is that fear creeping in through the back door? Sometimes turning inward or taking the easy way out seems more comfortable. Go ahead though, make the hard choice. Do the hard thing. And while you’re at it, make the world a better place today. #weeklyintentionswithiz

  • Tensegrity is a principle based on the use of  isolated components (struts) in compression inside a net (wires/cords) of continuous tension . The bars float in space without touching each other and  with the cables delianate the form - in this case a twisted 3 strut prism . It is a powerful principle finding expression in varied fields from musculoskeletal structures to habitats in space . The term itself  is credited to Buckminster Fuller in the 1960s as a portmanteau of "tensional integrity" . American sculptor and photographer Kenneth Snelson coined the term floating compression to describe the same principle and many of his sculptural works employed tensegrity as a base principle. Both Snelson and Fuller claimed credit for the discovery of the principle however both of these famous names were preceded in the 1920s by Soviet artist Karlis Johansson who actually was the first to demonstrate the concept in the early 1920s before Snelson was even born.  The million explanations/ definitions on line do not explain how cool it is to see and make one of these. So once we figured out how, we made an installation made up of 12648 individual units and suspended it from a 60 ft height ceiling . An inverted pyramid of tensegrities with a point that floated a couple of feet from the floor.  This image is from the excellent tensegritiet.nl site . Do look them up and the other brilliant resources online.We promise you will not be disappointed.  #tensegrity #floating #compression #geometry #buckminsterfuller #kennethsnelson #space #muscles #biology #technology #exhibition #force #balance
