My yoga journey 🌱
I love hearing about how people came to yoga so I'd love to share mine.⠀⠀
My journey started 2 years ago. I was drawn to yoga for its physical asana aspects. I enjoyed learning challenging poses and I was on a hunt to nail as many as I could in the shortest amount of time being the competitive person that I once was. ⠀⠀
I practiced almost daily from the start as I felt invigorated after each practice. ⠀⠀
I went to my first studio @sangha.bikram.queenstown where I met a collective of beautiful souls and knowledgable teachers who began to teach me what yoga really was about. ⠀⠀
From there, I moved to Whangarei where I was challenged as I couldn't go to studios but I wasn't going to drop my practice over this reason. I started my home practice, I YouTubed sequences and poses. ⠀⠀
By the end of this I knew yoga was part of me. I was a devotee. It was more than a passion and more than a hobby.⠀⠀
That was my calling to look at teacher training. ⠀⠀
As a pharmacist, I loved my job but I didn't know how to let this go of this to pursue a life as a yoga teacher. ⠀⠀
I weighed out the pros and cons of leaving this anchor. Fear about my future and also financial stability seeped in. ⠀⠀
Instinctively, I knew that I had to put my career on hold.⠀⠀
I had the perfect opportunity to fulfil this later on in the year. ⠀⠀
If it is your dharma to do something obstacles will miraculously turn into doors. ⠀⠀
In late 2016, I moved to Brisbane, new country, new life, new start. ⠀⠀
I dived straight into the amazing yoga community here, created incredible connections with the beautiful people here. ⠀⠀
In 2017, I completed my teacher training with Body Mind Life which has been life changing and more. ⠀⠀
I am now still living, breathing and loving yoga. ⠀⠀
Do what you love, find your dharma and follow it 💜⠀⠀
Let's hear your story. ⠀⠀
Looking up, and forwards.. After a few days of pounding hard pavements with my unshod country pony hooves, and staying in some fairly confined spaces I'm inspired to get on with this project. 👣
The idea is to work our a programme of doable and realistic moves to keep our bods happy when we are travelling, by whatever means. 🚂
For instance when confined to a small damp 'don't touch the sides' tent, after havng properly knackered ourselves with a full days walking or cycling. 🚵
The hard part is going to be getting across the viral detail, without losing one's audience - ... Usually no more than three key points at a time.....💜
Here it might be the shins coming down parallel to the ground, so as to keep the lower back broad and long... We're not trying to bring the knees up to the chest, the buttocks stay down, the tailbone extends away from the crown of the head...Shoulders tucked under away from the ears 😯
So two main challenges here -- First being clarity, and efficacy, but brevity of instructions imparted. 🔥
And secondly, finding the time to do it... 🌱🍅🌱🍅🌱🍅🌱🍅
Deadline looms though - Man Friday's circumnavigation of globe by boat, train, and hire car, pending in a few weeks... Fieldwork has to come first though, so it'll have to be an after - dark activity... 👣💚👣
✨To know yourself as the Being underneath the thinker, the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain, is freedom, salvation and enlightenment.
Never be afraid of failure, don't stop yourself from doing something you want to do because of what others might think. You have to Kknow yourself to improve yourself.
Lazy girl's meal prep:
✖️Salmon & Broccoli
✖️Overnight oats (almond milk, oats, chia seeds and blueberries)
All up costs about $15 and max 30mins prep time. Who said being healthy had to be difficult 👌🏻

Root to rise
Hips over shoulders
Shoulders in line with wrists
Feel the fear and do it anyway
All these cues, anatomical and energetic will be broken down and explored in my Handstand workshop.
Pop it in your diaries now.

Is being almost two weeks since I started this amazing journey through Italy, and I'm having so much fun that's why I couldn't share ideas and photos with you guys! >> 🇮🇹❤️The time here is being amazing. I came with no expectations, just with the idea that I could be great doesn't matter how. During this days I'm experimenting a great sensation of being treat so well, everyone is welcoming, warm and nice in every sense... literally it feels as a "gift from the gods" 🙂🙏🏽🌞 also came to my hands the a few days ago the book " POWER OF NOW" (by Eckhart Tolle) you can't miss the chance of learn how powerful is your own creation of the reality, everything is connected, everything is part of the same force! 🍀🌞✨💧 _________________________________________________________ #yoga#italy#forest#beach#body#travel#chile#urdamuka

Thank you to all the yogis and yoginis who came to Yoga Montez yesterday, it was wonderful to practice with you 🙏🏽 Already looking forward to the next class! 🤸🏽♀️ On a side note: This is my first handstand in almost a year. It was short but sweet and my wrist and arm is feeling stronger and stronger by the day thanks to a lot of TLC and strength training. 🙌🏽 It's not the pose, it's the journey that gets you there that matters ☺ #yogamontez#frankfurt#vinyasaflow

You're all just going to have to excuse me as I spam you with photos over the next few days from our @jessicaolie workshop.
You know people sometimes talk about the dark side of social media, and it exists for sure. But the flip side? The very beautiful, very real flip side of that coin is the way it opens the door for connection.
Real human connection.
Whether it's meeting new humans or making you feel like your best friend isn't quite so far away.
This space really has the potential to make this world seem a little smaller, make us feel a little bit more connected - if we let it.🙏 🌘🌗🌖🌕🌔🌓🌒 #yoga#yogaeverydamnday#yogainspiration#yogateacher#yogastudio#yogaeverywhere#inspiration#fitness#fitfam#gratitude#happiness#love#letsstartyoga
