drewosborne No inspirational quote. Nothing deep to say. Nothing more than the simplicity of movement after a long day, and the bliss that comes from it. Love your body and it will love you back.

drewosborne So I just realized its #nationaldogday - which clearly means I must post... And since Winston seems to steal more camera time, here's an old video of a Dante interrupting some inversion play on the mat. 3d

drewosborne Experimented with some Acro Yoga earlier today. New stuff for me! … But thanks to @JadeAlectra for letting me fly, I mean, drop you. Here is one of the good takes.

On another note, had an absolute blast this weekend at the @iggetaway event. Got to practice, meet, and take class from a ton of familiar IG faces/teachers, including the girl in this video, @fitqueenirene, @fitflexjuli, @mackenzieyoga, @seanphelpslife, @bryceyoga, @dylanwerneryoga, and many more. Chopping it up to an A+ weekend to say the least.

drewosborne "The study of asana is not about mastering posture. It's about using posture to understand & transform yourself."
_____
This has been a repetitive quote running around my mind recently. This picture is a throwback from over a year or so ago. At a point in time where entering the splits was a breeze. I was spending numerous hours a day opening my body in a heated room, practicing, and also focusing on deep stretches/restorative postures. Holding them felt comfortable, and completely free of tension or tightness.
_____
Recently though, I have taken up my love for running again, in turn resulting in tighter hamstrings. I have a busier schedule and am unable to devote the same amount of time I used to working with my body. I miss it. I have felt force and frustration in not feeling like my body is where it once was. I've noticed a pressure and urge to almost fight with my physical practice. This is not Yoga. This is not what I want, nor does my body. So today, and tomorrow, and for the next while, I practice the above quote. I remind myself that it doesn't matter how deep I can go into hanumanasana, or how long I can hangout upside down. What matters is that I look inside, listen to my body, address and move with the tightness and tension, relax, breathe, let go, and enjoy the journey… for if I do, this is where transformation authentically takes place. This is where I find the true definition of "my practice". This is where I find myself.

@jadealectra, @joshkramer91, and I have been hard at work finalizing the details for the #JDParfums release. A scent so strong the dense musk lingers even after a swim. Get ready.

drewosborne What is yesterday, tomorrow, or today? What is space, or eternity? I sit in my own radiance. What is the self, or the not-self? What is thinking, or not thinking? What is good or evil? I sit in my own splendor.

drewosborne When i'm not in a handstand or doing Yoga, i'm finding perfectly symmetrical walls to line up with my shirt. But, in all honesty my brain probably is. I've suffered from extreme OCD since I was a little kid. It is a huge part of why I continue to commit to my Yoga practice. I truly believe that mindfulness and working with the brain can help in so many ways. Be it anxiety, trauma, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, insomnia, yada, yada, yada… Think about taking on the journey of introducing yourself to the mind. Build a healthy relationship with it, and give it the chance to talk to you. The realization that IT needs your help is a game changer. You can heal it. It will let you, because that is what it wants. It is a full time job, but I promise you it is worth it!

What is something that you struggle with? Or challenges you? Share it with me, or a friend, or maybe just with yourself. Take the time and opportunity to commit to releasing something that doesn't serve you. Search for the support from others, and yourself. You deserve it. Love you guys.

drewosborne Let the world call you lazy for not running about like a frightened ghost. Just be quiet inside yourself.
Don’t bother about knowing how things should be and simply begin observing without prejudice, projections, or desires.
Notice how life flows of its own accord.
Nothing here is a chaos, but a harmony.
You are already inside this flow.
