One of the greatest yogis and gurus who ever lived left his mortal life today. Deepest condolences to the family of BKS Iyengar as well as all the students of the yoga practice. We’ve lost a legend and a leader, but his truth and presence will be eternally honored and remembered. Take time today to give thanks for all the teachers who have gifted their wisdom to you. 

"The hardness of a diamond is part of its usefulness, but its true value is in the light that shines through it." -BKS Iyengar

Up early to welcome the sun …. Even underneath the clouds, the sun never stops shining. After I took this picture, the sun did come out long enough to practice sun gazing - the ancient technique of staring into the sun until the imagine is burned into your mind, and then closing your eyes and using the image as a drishti to meditate. This technique can be done using a candle instead, but using the big fireball in the sky is way more powerful. Enjoy your Wednesday and do some yoga on a mat or cushion or maybe just random act of kindness. β€οΈπŸ™ #beinfinite #alexismartinyoga #sunrise #sungazing #stretch #meditate #newday

{“Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign. Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember one rule of thumb: the more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.” -Steven Pressfield}

Two pairs of my shoes lost their sole in two days …. So I took the hint & we all went barefoot today. Yoga this morning, paddleboarding and sand castle construction this afternoon, beachside Baja tacos with beer and a live reggae band, and dancing on the beach during sunset. Tomorrow I’ll go shoe shopping …. Maybe πŸ˜‰

Oh Wise One, if you knew the answer, why’d you ask the question? …. We all know the answer, but the empowerment is found in being brave enough to ask the tough questions and receive the answers we already know.

“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” Words of wisdom from Christopher Robin to Pooh that we all need to promise to ourselves. 

A pose I never thought possible after two car accidents ….. Although still elusive and a work in progress, it’s a friendly reminder that a little bit of gumption is great for the soul.

Rise and Shine morning practice complete! Since returning from all my traveling, I’ve been getting down to the nitty gritty of what my needs are vs. my personal expectations. My needs lately have been for more personal and quiet time for reflection and meditation. My expectation is that there is an extra long to-do list that is stamped in bright red with “URGENT” on every page and if I don’t get it all complete, I’m bound to be disappointing someone. There’s a quote by Donald Miller that says, “When you stop expecting people to be perfect, you can like them for who they are.” My asana practice always continues and I practice #yogaeverydamnday - sometimes it has more yang and sometimes more yin, sometimes it last 30 min and sometimes 2 hours. It’s all about nourishment. What is it that nourishes your mind, body, AND soul? These are the things that we need to do. Stop the expectations. Like yourself for who you are. And you will flourish with nourishment. β€οΈπŸ™ #beinfinite #alexismartinyoga #yogagirlchallenge  (at home sweet home)

I took a break from social media for the last few days. It’s been great, except I missed you all. @ultraman_45, #ultrababy and I have been traveling a lot this summer and we’ve finally returned home for the next month. 

As I write this I can hear the sounds of my childhood outside my window, frogs croaking and crickets chirping after a long afternoon of Florida rain while the thunder still echoes in the distance. I wish you could smell the air. It’s marvelous. I’m enjoying the super moon rising over the glassy river in front of my house and feel complete from a day of teaching 3 yoga classes, an enjoyable lunch with @ocean_minded_ , and quality time with my daughter. I’m feeling grateful tonight. I could make a list of a thousand things for which I am grateful …. But at this moment, the feeling is just enough. This river of gratitude runs so deep and wide I feel engulfed and swept away. The kind of gratitude that brings tears that don’t fall down my cheeks, but instead just linger at the corners of my eyes. My heart is wide open and full of love tonight. For you. For this beautiful thing we call life. For all the mistakes and celebrations we’ve all shared. For the Wild Woman or Wild Man that lives in each of us that begs to be unleashed to love passionately and unconditionally. Close your eyes. Right now. Don’t wait. Your can feel it too. This kind of gratitude is highly contagious and is known to heal all sorrow and suffering. Gratitude leads us to true knowledge. So stop reading this and FEEL thankful. Let the gratitude pulse through your veins like a wild animal. It will give you life. It will set you free.
