🇵🇪 Perú - afloat into the New... Nature, giver of Life: Water, Air, Earth are sacred. Trees, plants, animals, the same. May we (re)gain awareness about our interconnection and interaction with our environment. Let's respect and love our one and only Home💚 How about that for a new year's resolution? 🌬💚 Planetary success rather than 'personal' success.
What a rich, magic playground Life is! This year has been a roller coaster ride, free falling from exaltation into heartbreak, over and over. Why? Rather than any external event, I attribute it to yoga, Feldenkrais and meditation: they all work to bring into awareness our habit patterns and discomfortable areas in our lives, so that we can overcome our ignorance and evolve into fuller, more compassionate and loving BEings. Geographically it's been India, Portugal, Spain, Transylvania and reverse order, only instead of heading back to India as originally planned, I will be starting the new year in Peru. On a quest to integrate Nature into my work, I will be on silent retreat for most part of January. Grateful to you for enriching my life - we are beings of light, here to help each other grow. I love you and I thank you! 💛 Photo (C) Magali Couffon at Being Gathering 🙏🏽
In turbulent times... 'sometimes I go about in pity for myself, and all the while the Great Wind carries me across the Sky'. Ojibwe saying 🙏🏽
2018 Transylvania Hiking & Yoga retreat is ON! :) Incredibly excited about this, as the program is replete with activities that are unique even for a seasoned nature lover and knower of the area myself! All guided mountain hikes, rural life experience, saxon history & heritage, delicious local food, bear viewing, bird viewing, visiting monks in a secluded chapel carved in rocks.... all in a very relaxed setting. All inclusive retreat. Early bird rates available. http://www.yogamasha.com/p/transylvania-retreat.html
Bubbling up with love for the place, Nature and wonderful group at the Transylvania Yoga, Hiking & Discovery retreat!
Breathtaking natural beauty and cultural authenticity in the location of the Transylvania Yoga, Hiking & Discovery Retreat. So excited to be receiving yogis from 4 continents in just a few days!
My version of paradise 😍😍😍 King's Stone Mountains in Transylvania, Romania. My heart swells up knowing I'll be there in less than a month sharing this wild beauty with an international group of yogis at the Transylvania Yoga, Hiking & Discovery Retreat from 3-8 September. Few spots still available 🌳. www.yogamasha.com
Trippy training...! Visiting the Feldenkrais training in Barcelona I'm thrown into a room with about 20 students 'lapping up water from a mountain river using solely their tongue and looking out for tigers'... Then licking on imaginary ice creams... No tripping, just plain old Feldenkrais Method classes... based on our evolution. My head is indeed sitting much better organized on top of my cervicals now, ice cream licking has paid off :) Great trainer and colleagues, am excited to be coming more often here. And wondering what other eccentric movements we'll be up to in the next days 🤗
Honored, humbled and grateful beyond words to have been part of the love and magic of Being Gathering! Big thanks to Filipa Veiga for the invite, to SilviaStojanovic for showering me with so much love and support and to my assistants during the Awareness Through Movement Feldenkrais offering. Much love goes out to all the beautiful souls who co-created this incredible gathering of love, light and growth. 💛✨💖
Big messages beautifully delivered by Thievery Corporation last night. Turn sound on. What a treat! They're currently touring with their new album, go see them if you can!
Exercising farsightedness helps us see beyond our individual problems and connect to the bigger picture. The bigger picture is that everything is perfect just as it is. Life is good. Any challenge you might be facing is just another opportunity for growth and wisdom. Let's connect to the life-giving Earth, Water and Sky and take in their infinite beauty and perfection. ✨💫
Nature immersion = heart wisdom 💚 Our body & mind are merely the servants of the Heart. They are the instruments through which our heart expresses itself, even though we might often get confused about this hierarchy. As human animals needing to survive, body and mind speak to us 'louder' so as to protect us and avoid danger. But we're also spiritual beings and from this perspective it's the heart that rules. Yoga, meditation, nature immersion train us to become good listeners: listening to the quiet voice within and honoring it with our whole being. Becoming more of who we truly are. Interestingly, the colour of the heart chakra is not red, but green. 💚 #treepose #anahatachakra #yoga #yogaretreat #healthylife #yogatravel #gratitude #yogamood #yogamasha #sintra #portugal
