Yoga is a celebration of life in this moment. It is detaching from whatever it is that came before and anything that may come next, to just be here now. Even if only a drop is tasted, sipping the nectar of divine presence is the ultimate feeling we experience in life. And whatever it is we do to bring ourselves home to this place of contentment, be it painting, running, playing music, doing asanas, lifting weights, swimming, making love, gardening, cooking, or anything else that lets us feel “I am here,” is yoga. Because yoga is a celebration of life in this moment. #iamhere #yoga #asana #bangkokyoga #bangkok #thailand #letgo #presence #whatisyoga #thismoment #celebration #headstand #tripodheadstand #sirsasana
People are sometimes surprised to discover I teach yoga. I get it, I don’t embody what they expect of a person filling this role. I love drinking alcohol, smoke cigarettes sometimes and am happily single and free. Yoga keeps me balanced. If I didn’t have it in my life, my vices could consume me. So for whatever it is we do in life, we do it in the way that’s right for us. This is changing from moment to moment, as we grow and evolve. Now look at yourself. You’re doing the best you can with the tools you’ve been given. Don’t believe you are inadequate for not fitting the blueprint, of what society says is the way a person such as yourself should live. Accept yourself as you are, without feeling guilty for doing whatever it is that makes you feel alive. This is the way to discover who you truly are: let yourself be you. Of course over time, effort to make positive changes in your life, but do not reject yourself now. If you do, this nasty habit will stay with you even as you grow. The most important thing I have to teach anyone, indeed the most vital lesson I have learned, is self love. Every single one of us deserves our own love. To waste another precious second thinking you are not good enough is a mistaken thought. You are good enough. Love yourself. #loveeverymoment #loveyourself #acceptyourself #selflove #blackandwhite #b&w #portrait #yoga #yogaeverywhere #yogainbangkok #fuckyeahyoga #bangkok #thailand #beherenow #presence #acceptance #selfacceptance
Let go of your seriousness, just let it go. Seriousness is a cancer of the soul, the greatest cancer; eating your inner peace as it consumes you fully. Living well is being playful, relaxed and unworried. Truly, whatever has happened is of no real importance. Life always continues. Let go of your seriousness and life will continue. #india #mysore #travel #yoga #eaglepose #garudasana #fuckyeahyoga #yogaeverywhere #seriousness #letgo #relax #loveeverymoment #lifeisgood

There are many walls we’ve built within to distance ourselves from freedom. We are trapped inside the darkest room desperately seeking an escape. And we feel this separation in life, because we imagine there is a difference between ourselves and others. We are imprisoned simply by imagining we are not the same. Our task is to free ourselves and to do so, we must believe our similarities unite us. Above all, we are human. Together we can rise above internal chatter which attempts to convince us we are different, and remember the One. Every person on earth is equally deserving of our love and the great mission in life, is sharing it in every way possible. If we accept this mission, there is hope of an escape. We see the light now. Love is the key that sets us all free. #love #lovelife #loveall #freedom #acceptance #separation #nonjudgement #openyourheart #humanfamily #friday #one #theone #weareone
This is called a sun salutation. I like sun salutations so much I do them every day. It’s a way of saying thanks to the sun for letting me live on earth. I used to get annoyed with the sun and say: “Oh it’s too bloody hot! Go away sun,” or “Where’s the sun? It’s so damn cold.” But then one day I understood the sun has a very big job. It’s our life giver and without it, none of us would be here. Now I never get annoyed with the sun. When I feel hot I know it’s warming me up so I have lots of energy to do sun salutations. When it’s cold or goes away for a while, I know it’s telling me to rest while it gives energy to people in another part of the world. It’s a big job keeping all of us alive, but the sun can do it so I say thank you every day.
Patience: stay on the path. Enjoy the uncertainty of life’s journey, all will be revealed in time. A key to each locked door will be given, and behind each door will be the answer you’re seeking. Trust this is true. The path is hazy for a reason. If you could see exactly where it is leading, you’d think you know where you’re going. But this is about feelings, not thought. You’re like a character in a book that’s not yet been finished, and the hand writing the story must see what emerges, before deciding which door to open. Hear your heart: it’s writing this story, holding keys to all locked doors and opening them as needed. Patience.
