[Part 1 of 6:]
"This is where I’ve had the challenge and privilege of spending a lot of time in our son’s early life—at Boston Children’s Hospital. His journey began here with what appeared to be a small problem when he was six, which grew into something much bigger and very unusual. The quality of the care, and the people that work here with their super-skills and their heart fully in it, made the hardest time in our lives as comfortable as it could have been. It was a very humbling experience for me and our whole family.
During our extensive time at Children's, I met a lot of parents and families from all over the world. It was remarkable that we had this place that treated even the rarest conditions- like our son’s, within an hour from our house.
Had yoga been a part of my life then, I may have been a little more resilient. Maybe I would have had more peace and more acceptance of uncertainty. I’m much more comfortable with uncertainty now. Also, being at Boston Children’s is like yoga because they both bring this sharp focus: You’re only one person out of all these people in this place, in this world, and everyone is special. No one has more value than anyone else. That’s just a teeny bit of what I get from yoga.” - Nanci

What would it be like to have a healthy relationship To heal To release trauma To be financially stable To take control of your health All of these things sound beautiful, yet so often we refuse them because the other side of our current situation is the unknown. We don’t know what life will look like when we change. Who will we become
Sometimes we find safety in our pain. In our discomfort. In what we know even if it isn’t what we want. It’s a shield, something we can hide behind and use as an excuse. It often becomes a large piece of our identity. I can only speak for myself obviously, but I highly doubt I’m alone in it.
I don’t think there has to be some huge overhaul here. Simply recognizing that we are keeping ourselves stuck in less than ideal scenarios is the first step. Once we are able to admit it, I think we begin to do the work slowly but surely. We become interested in expanding, in becoming well in all aspects of our lives, we stop putting up w bs and begin to stand up for ourselves and our needs. There is a ripple effect and the first step is simply awareness💛
Have a wonderful week everyone😘

Taking a seat on the wine today and hanging out with my old friend water. Remember to balance out your good vibrations with some purifying water and rejuvenating plants. I hope everyone had a wonderful #bossbabemondays. I got to spend it with my family and not doing homework because of Presidents’ Day! 💜 #wineyourasana yogi.bree @emmitheyogi @yoginiinheels @_monette @artsy_blue
To function optimally, a body requires balance between its parts. Some parts of the body lend themselves to mobility and benefit from practices that provide stability while others lend support and benefit from practices that maintain healthy flexibility/prevent rigidity. ⚖️
Our own @Rachel.Land.Yoga offers her input on the matter, “One of the key things I learned from #YogaMedicine training was the need for balance. I knew that some people were more flexible and some people less flexible, but I didn’t realize that even within one body some areas tend more to mobility than others. The mid back, or thoracic spine tends to stiffen up around our posture and movement habits and needs some TLC in order to maintain healthy range of motion.” 🙏🏼
If your back is giving you a hard time, Rachel has some simple, feel-good practices for increasing upper back mobility on @Yoga_international that might be perfect for you! Check them out now. Link in bio 🔗. #YogaMedicine

being present in the current moment. It can be hard, especially when there’s so many things thrown at you from different areas of life regarding future events and things that need to get done. I myself have been working on letting go of these “deadlines” and stresses, and trying to be present. what helps me is visualizing my goals, making steps toward the goals, but letting go of any negative emotion toward the process of it. just know that everything works out, the path will be carved. the universe has your back. set intentions. focus on yourself. everything else will work itself out. enjoy the process.
