Meditation is by far the single most effective tool for emotional balance. Without it, I’d be lost. It’s through my daily sitting practice that I’ve faced so many of my darkest demons and learned some of deepest lessons. It’s meditation that helped me learn the true meaning of non-attachment and surrender. _ Here are some tools that help me— 1. You don’t need to sit for hours to get benefit. As little as five minutes a day can make a substantial difference in the quality of your mind. 2. The purpose of meditation is not to become awesome at meditation, the purpose is live a better life. 3. The amount of thoughts is overwhelming. Once you learn not to believe your thoughts or accept them as true, there’s so much more freedom and space in the mind. 4. Equanimity—the calm, quiet space of pure observation was easiest for me to learn in sitting practice. I could then take it into my asana practice and more importantly into my life. 5. Like all spiritual practice, start where you are. No need to wait for that one day when. 6. Everyone can meditate! You’re not too old or too young to start. It’s not against any religion. You don’t need to sit on the floor, you can sit on a chair or whatever you’re comfortable with. The type of meditation I learned is free for all and entirely donation based. Really, everyone is welcome on the meditation cushion. 7. You don’t need a beautiful place to sit. Any place will do, whether a closet or a bathroom, all you need is a place where you can be alone for five minutes without being disturbed. _ I hope this beautiful time lapse meditation inspires to sit today. May you be peaceful, be happy and be joyful. _ #meditation #turksandcaicos Video @ifilmyoga @themeridianclubtci @wellxplored 🙏

Winter in Miami ☀️ If you think I just pop up into handstand effortlessly on my first try, watch this video to see how many tries before I finally made it up. Don’t feel bad about yourself if it doesn’t happen on the first or the first thousand tries. It’s practice and all that matters is that you try. If you see a perfect picture it’s often a snapshot into an imperfect reality. Struggle and understanding the reality of it are essential elements of learning in the field of yoga. So, the next time you find yourself comparing your achievements or process to someone else, remember to be kind and gentle with yourself. Instead of seeing your own failure in someone else’s success look for their hard work and ceaseless dedication and let it inspire to practice more. I hope seeing my struggle here helps keep it real. I’m not some alien yoga deity who did everything with little practice. I’m just a girl who has been practicing for a long time. I was never a dancer, never a gymnast, never on a sports team. Whatever strength and grace you see in me is just your own potential reflected back. The magic secret is simple, just keep practicing. _ And of course if you want to practice with me online, the best place is @omstarsofficial 🙏 _ New student yearly promo $80/year, less than $7/month Use code BLACKFRIDAY _ Members offers 30% entire shop Use code GRATITUDE 30% off all Teacher Development Courses No code required, automatic once you’re logged in _ 40% off select Omstars by Liquido prints No code, discount already applied on sale items 😊

I almost didn’t practice today. Did you? It was one of those days when it seemed like anything else other than practice was more interesting. Laundry, cleaning, plucking unwanted facial hair, checking in for my flight to Mexico, emails, watching the new releases on @omstarsofficial (Have you checked it out?! It’s Edwin Bryant’s Yoga Sutras), online shopping (by far my favorite procrastination), watching animal videos (maybe close second for time sucks), watching other funny videos (these are usually shown to me by Tim who is also often wasting time before practice. Did you see the new one by @benandjerrys ), reading the news, planning an imagined run for public office (would anyone vote for a yogi who wears small shorts?), all in that order. And it all seemed dramatically more interesting than practice and almost ate my practice in a grand mess of distraction. But I did it. I got on the mat and did both my meditation and yoga practice and I’m so glad I did. It wasn’t anything spectacular. I didn’t accomplish any milestones. I just got on my mat and took a step forward on the path. There is just a bit more peace, a bit more love and a lot more forgiveness in my day after practice. We all have days where we’d rather not practice, whether anything and everything from pancakes to pressure cleaning the driveway seems more appealing than practice. But practice is a daily discipline and those small days when you win the battle of distraction are so meaningful. And the others when you don’t, well, those are great opportunities for you to practice forgiveness and motivate yourself to get back on the mat again the next chance you get. This is how we do it, this is how we change the world. We get on the mat and learn our lessons, over many years of practice. Slowly the lessons of the practice deep into our lives and change happens. Sometimes we have to fight for it, and sometimes it just unfolds like a flower when the time is right. Either way, you have to keep practicing. _ Day 14 #ashtangachallenge is Baddha Hasta Sirsasana B.

There is no point in stressing over things you can’t control. The more you obsess about things that are outside of the realm of your power, you the more anxious and out of control you feel. It can be hard in the midst of struggle to have faith in the bigger picture and trust that the universe really is working for the greater good and your good too. But that’s exactly when all your training as a yogi matters most. _ When things feel hopeless, when no path laid out before you leads to peace, when it all just feels difficult and exhausting, don’t give up, but don’t force it either. If you have done everything within your power and it’s still not done the only thing left is to let it go. I can’t tell you how hard this is for me. When I was first practicing Pinchamayurasana I had to learn the hard way. Once I tried this pose nearly 20 times in a row. It got worse and worse and was both belligerent, punitive and aggressive towards myself. It took me nearly two years of practice to find the balance. One thing I learned along the way is that every pose has its time, just like every flower has its time. No amount of stressing, forcing or pushing will change it. The key to a good practice is learning how to be at peace with yourself and your body right now, with whatever strength or lack thereof, whatever size or shape you are, and also to keep practicing with a heart full of love. _ A good way to measure whether you’re operating from love or fear is to see how you feel about yourself in the moment. If there’s a hint of shame and blame, it’s probably a good indication that you’re trying to force it. If you’re feeling hopeful, joyful, expectant, energized or peaceful, you are probably operating from love. What can do you if you notice you’re off track? Well, I recommend letting it go. Stop the activity or conversation your engaged in. Trust that it will eventually work out. Then, go do something that brings you pure joy. You might go play on the beach 😊 _ Day 11 #ashtangachallenge is Pinchamayurasana. Did you watch my tutorial on @omstarsofficial ? What did you think?

Just practice. Honest, raw, real. Not trying to be anything other than what it is. Nothing fancy. No tricks. No make-up. Just a little filter for better lighting. And yeah, me and my shorts again in my typical home practice outfit. _ I’ve been working on this handstand for almost two years. Changing the head position and keeping the balance is really hard for me. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve fallen and tumbled out. I rarely have anyone help me since I mostly practice at home. I made this video today just to see how I’m doing and I was genuinely surprised to see myself in balance and in line. I can tell you it certainly feels like I’m not in balance or in line. _ If you’re feeling unmotivated to practice or like you just don’t have time, remember it only matters that you get on your mat for as little as five minutes day as often as you can. I practice six days a week, but not everyone can. I usually practice for 60-90 minutes but not always for that long (sometimes it’s just five minutes). It’s important to cherish every moment on the mat, to really honor and be thankful for whatever practice you do have the opportunity to do. In doing so, even a few breaths can take you deep into the inner world of peace and harmony. And it can change the quality of your day and truly make your world a more peaceful place. It does for me. I leave every experience on my mat with more peace, more love, more kindness and more humility. That’s why I practice. Handstands are fun, but if they’re not making you a better person they serve no purpose. No need to make an ass-ana out of yourself, I for one already feel like enough of one. I’m practicing yoga to be a better person. _ Join me this weekend in Dallas @secondsideyoga Details in stories or online here— https://www.secondsideyoga.com/workshop/kino _ If you want to attend but cannot due to financial reasons and would like to be considered for a scholarship spot, please send me an email: info@kinoyoga.com _ #practiceyogachangeyourworld #onebreathatatime 🙏
