The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers. It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow. I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
What am I thinking? What a joy it is to #yoga #dance with #flowers. I am so grateful for the abilities of our bodies to move in all ways. The movement with breath is the art of consciousness expressing itself thru human form.
I am being moved.
I am being breathed.
I feel the universe inside me.

#HappinessRx: The we treat ourselves will be the way we treat others.
“We would never purchase a can of red paint and expect it to be the color blue when we apply it to our walls. The “color” of how we treat ourselves is the “color” of how we treat others. If we can’t be safe with ourselves, others can never be safe with us, and the world can never be a safe place to be.” – Yamas & Niyamas, Deborah Adele
#shoulderstand is a great practice of #ahimsa towards ourselves. As a teacher how you treat yourself, staying safe in your own body, is an indicator of how you’ll help keep others safe in your classes.
Practice of shoulderstand takes time. This variation took me ten years to lovingly create in my body.

Stoked to stir the honey pot March 24th 1:30pm at BaliSpirit Festivalwoohoo! 🎶❤️ Hip, Hip, Hooray!
Think of all the things that give you pleasure and nurture you and this is related to the care and feeding of your honey pot.
If we ignore our hips they begin acting as the junk drawer of the body. In doing so, we lose our self-confidence, our emotional connection to each other, and our power to make #change.
This workshop is a journey into #empowerment and reclaims our essential foundation for #happiness by focusing on the elements of earth and water.
1️⃣Through chakra one, we will learn skills for grounding and rooting ourselves in the Earth.
2️⃣In chakra two, we will reclaim the mysteries of #creativity, relationship to emotion, and devotion, as powerful agents of connection with ourselves and others.
Expect inspirational music and a juicy creative hip opening #vinyasa flow practice, great for detoxifying and grounding.
Practice starts with a heat building, hip & thigh opening sun salutation sequence, then moves into a series of hip openers where you will spend time breaking down and exploring the postures more deeply. The main poses we will work towards will be full bakasana, krounchasana and yogadandasana.
A deep savasana and mantra and song to end the workshop will help us truly move smoothly with our honey pots restored!

I am an admitted travel junkie. I spend up to 70% of my time making adventures around this work connecting to the beauty of the people and nature all around. In order to get where I’m going I have to get on an airplane.
I make the most of the time I have at airports like this one shown here in SouthEast Asia by practicing #yoga that doesn’t require a mat or special yoga clothes.
If you look at my www.alchemyofyoga.com website you’ll find all sorts of sequences that do not require touching the ground with your hands. This is built upon a “no downdogs allowed” concept so one doesn’t have to be wary of germs or not having the right equipment.
The types of flows I offer are: 1) Standing (like shown here) 2) seated in airport chair 3) using a wall. Enjoy and make the most of the opportunities for Yoga at the Airport. Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
Thank you 2016! Thank you for every pose on and off the mat, those that I loved and those that I didn’t particularly like. Pleasant and unpleasant, I’m grateful for all of the ups and downs, confusion and clarity. I receive you with lovingkindness.
“Your life is a sacred journey. It is about change, growth, discovery, movement, transformation, continuously expanding your vision of what is possible, stretching your soul, learning to see clearly and deeply, listening to your intuition, taking courageous challenges at every step along the way. You are on the path… exactly where you are meant to be right now… And from here, you can only go forward, shaping your life story into a magnificent tale of triumph, of healing, of courage, of beauty, of wisdom, of power, of dignity, and of love.” ~ by Caroline Adams

Feeling ever more earthy water flow this #newmoon and remembering my last two new moons in #baja and here in #bali at Soulshine Bali
Love this transition #skandasana to #warrior2
Standing ready to dissolve
Lotus blossom opens up into Anjali mudra
Deepest wishes of heart soften down into earth
I lift up. I lay back.
I climb up from my head to my heart.
I play. I fall.
I reach up to touch the Sky.
Upside down and up again.
I dive deep.
Heart melts upwards.
I embrace and receive it all
Like blessings from the dark

We all have days where we feel too tired to do our practice. Even then sit down for 5-10 minutes for an easeful kundalini vinyasa fusion flow and breathe.
