Get The Inspiration To Persevere 🎡 Forearm Stand

It’s enough to sit down, to forget books and discussion, to direct our attention toward the heart. There the divine is found. There is the place of respiration where our breath mingles naturally. The infinite is no more than that harmonious breathing, free of all thought. 

– Daniel Odier –



Hello, fellow friends on the path,

I read the above quote last week in the LIVE class. I love love love this passage as I can get caught up in seeking to learn ALL THE THINGS. I love reading and discussing philosophy. That’s all good and fine BUT if I want to connect to and move from the power inside me, I need to get quiet and go inside. This passage is a wonderful reminder that wisdom is not something we seek but something we cultivate. We must sow our own seeds and take the time to get quiet and listen to the whispers of our spirits.

The trip we go on as a community through the yoga practice is a collaboration. This practice, for me at least, is one that is healing because regular life sometimes brings a heaviness or stagnation, at least in my experience. What I seek in my own practice is this idea of expansion, this idea of letting go, and this idea of realigning. 

I can’t believe we’re in our LAST WEEK of the challenge!!! For those of you who joined me on this journey, I’ve  really enjoyed the momentum we’ve created together in the Facebook Group

I’m looking forward to seeing you again for the Live class today. 🧘🏻‍♀️

Join me for a 60-minute vinyasa practice working towards Forearm Stand. That means we’ll be working on strengthening the core and chest and opening up shoulders and hamstrings.

Here’s the excerpt from class last week

☁️ Tantric Quest by Daniel Odier ☁️ 

We have such a thirst for knowledge that we are fooled by our power to know. It focuses on the exterior and deceives us with the illusion that we are going to find what we lack. Divine knowledge doesn’t grow by accumulation. The more you try to pile up knowledge and experience, the more you paralyze your consciousness.

Let’s abandon this knowledge. It only inflates pride. When I say that intelligence is not the way, I don’t mean to say intelligence must be rejected. I am simply saying that intelligence which accomplishes anything appears unsolicited. In tranquility, it shines like a diamond. Let us return simply to the source of our consciousness and find there the treasure we sought on the outside.

It’s enough to sit down, to forget books and discussion, to direct our attention toward the heart. There the divine is found. There is the place of respiration where our breath mingles naturally. The infinite is no more than that harmonious breathing, free of all thought.
