This. Is. Everything.
“Success”, however you define it, is not a linear path — or a check list.
It’s all about finding your own individual balance…usually achieved by giving ourselves back TIME to find joy, to smile.
Thank you, cosmic family, for reminding us to always find the balance, take time, sit back, seek joy, and smile.
Your images always awaken the magic and beauty within and around us.
Keep hashtaggging #NJYOGACOLLECTIVE and showing up, on the mat and off, with intention, dedication, and inspiration!

They say you need as many days as time zones jumped to feel normal again after traveling…. I don’t know if that’s true but even after 4 years of living in the Middle East, I’m still not used to the shift 😂. I’ve been settling in, seeing friends and family, catching a cold in the wintry Asbury wind (seriously, what is this weather??), and getting ready to drive upstate for my best friends wedding this weekend! Excited be home, and more importantly, I’m excited to share some Ashtanga with the community in NJ in a couple of weeks. This state is so blessed with endless yoga studios and events going on, but I definitely notice the lack of traditional yoga when I am back here. I can be quite critical when it comes to western-style “yoga” but I am honestly happy to see the practice growing in any way it can. Well anyway, if you’d like to learn some new (and old) things about Ashtanga, or where your modern style hot Vinyasa classes probably stem from, come join me in one of my workshops on the 20th (@summusbodymind), the 23rd (@yogaandbarrehaven), and the 24th (@youniqueyoga_jerseyshore)! Info is on my story highlights or on my website firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to meet you there! (Cheesily catching the sun with @shawna.rodgers ❤️)
already almost a week into June which means we’re closer and closer to @goodvibesyogabar being ready to blow all your minds! can’t WAIT to be sharing some vinyasa and yin and delivering up yoga realness in what’s to be a beautiful, warm, community driven space! check it out and give it a follow and then come practice with us in just a few weeks🤙🏼 . . @goodvibesyogabar @goodvibesyogabar @goodvibesyogabar
Back bending is not just about how you bend. But how you open your heart. It's a massive heart opening pose. One of the most notable benefits of Camel Pose, and other backbends, is anxiety and stress relief.When your heart chakra is open, and energy flows freely, you operate in every action and thought from a place of love. You love others. You love yourself. You give love. You receive love. Love yourself. The good the bad the ugly. Love and trust the process. #camelpose #backbend #backbendingyogis #Beardedyogizee #yogaingoa #balancednbentyoga #balancednbent #yoga #yogateacherlife #yogalover #yogateacher #yogaeverdamnday #yogaeveryday #yogi #yogiofinstagram #realmendoyoga #yogaformentalhealth #moveyourmind #moveyourbody #livelifehealthy #livelimitless #zenyogi #asana #njyogacollective #njyogi #njyogateacher
Crazy news over the last two days with two American, NYC-based cultural icons taking their own lives I’ve heard people remark they can’t believe that these two successful people would do such a thing Why, they wonder, when they had everything and had it ALL would they do that? The brand, the good looks, the wealth, the fame… That ridiculous list that western society equates to success . . . But “success”, however you define it, is not a linear path — or a check list It’s all about finding your own individual balance within Maslow’s hierarchy of needs And I am learning from @premayogainstitute that ayurveda is pretty much balancing all your things to make you, well, the best you But I also know what it’s like to feel out of balance, like you’re spinning out of control …and feeling super alone and blue in the process of trying to ground yourself and reconnect — trust, I have to check myself like anyone else. It’s usually achieved by giving ourselves back TIME to find joy, to smile The most busy, brilliant, successful people, including politicians and business people, are also those people who say NO the most They know their time is valued And although there are so many variables that allow people to have free time to destress, like financial freedom or certain kind of relationships, mental freedom is always still free It isn’t easy to find it when you’re running around in a city with a bunch of competitive assholes with no time to rest and reset That puts anyone over the edge Particularly creative geniuses like Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain—everyone wanted their time But you can manage your time to find joy in the small moments throughout the day, it definitely helps And in those days when you can’t find small moments of joy, know you are not alone Kindness and generosity will show up somewhere during that day if you allow it Thinking of those today and always looking for their inner light and peace… ✌🏻 DM me if you ever are struggling or know someone who is and want to talk about this 💫
What fairy tales do you tell yourself about healthful eating? You’ll start when it’s warmer? When you have to? When it’s not a holiday weekend? Truth is harder than fiction, 🤥, but not when you have a #personalchef on your side. Buckwheat Noodles, Chilled Dashi, Crisp Veggies and Hard Cooked Eggs. Better eating, tailored to you, can happen right NOW. Make it easier on yourself and contact @relishyourchef. Your health and wellness will thank you happily ever after. Eat well; you’ve earned it. . . . . #fairytales #buckwheat #sesame #eggs #glutenfree #meatlessmonday
