jackeysknives "A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more."
-John Steinbeck, East of Eden

jackeysknives Class location change! Because of the rain and wet rooftop, American Trade Hotel/Hall rooms being full because of IFF events, and a couple cool Italian friends, CLASS WILL BE AT JERONIMO ART GALLERY TONIGHT AT 6PM!

If there's a will there's a way. Come practice with me and surround yourself with inspirational art and positive vibes.

Practice #sunsetyoga with me every Monday at 6pm at the #americantradehall @amtradehotel #cascoviejo
All levels vinyasa yoga, so everyone is welcome. I believe you can be a beginner in one pose and advanced in another. So beginners let go of your limitations and expectations, try something new that's good for you, cultivate well being into your life, and expand your horizons mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Advance practitioners let go of the ego, revisit the basics, feel free to add your own variations to your practice, and expect a few challenge poses from me :) Also get to know like minded people in your neighborhood and community. I'm always creating a warm and welcome atmosphere to practice yoga. Connect with your #yogatribe , make new friends, and network.

So much goodness, how can you say no?
When is the best time to start? Today before you convince yourself otherwise. The time is now!

Every breath is a new beginning. Every breath is an opportunity to transform your dreams into your reality. Every breath is a chance to make healthy wise decisions that can change your life forever. So start today! Meet you on the mat Love & Light,
Jackie Find out more info at http://panamayogadance.com

jackeysknives Totally moved by and can relate to @brenebrown @ted talk I watched last night. If you can spare 20 minutes I highly recommend it. Here is a little of the researcher/storytellers wisdom: "Courage, the original definition of courage,when it first came into the English language -- it's from the Latin word cor, meaning heart -- and the original definition was to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart.
And so these folks had, very simply, the courage to be imperfect. They had the compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others, because, as it turns out,we can't practice compassion with other people if we can't treat ourselves kindly. And the last was they had connection, and -- this was the hard part -- as a result of authenticity, they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they were, which you have to absolutely do that for connection.

The other thing that they had in common was this: They fully embraced vulnerability.They believed that what made them vulnerable made them beautiful. They didn't talk about vulnerability being comfortable,nor did they really talk about it being excruciating -- as I had heard it earlier in the shame interviewing. They just talked about it being necessary. They talked about the willingness to say, "I love you" first, the willingness to do something where there are no guarantees, the willingness to breathe through waiting for the doctor to call after your mammogram. They're willing to invest in a relationship that may or may not work out. They thought this was fundamental.

And I know that vulnerability is the core of shame and fear and our struggle for worthiness, but it appears that it's also the birthplace of joy, of creativity, of belonging, of love." To feel the beautiful sensation of vulnerability means you're alive! #gratefuleverydamnday

jackeysknives #WaterfallWednesday "A #waterfall is in constant motion. The water rushes by exclaiming it's passing with a gurgle or a roar. Even the rocks that resist the water are constantly wearing. Even though this motion is slower than we can perceive, it is still there. Yet the waterfalls are stationary enough to find their way onto maps. Consistent and reliable, they are there if the water is flowing." -Art Sheridan

jackeysknives #Juanadearcofrenchie always sees the #lightanddark in every scenario and has the wisdom to #smile throughout it all. She knows that opposite forces are #interconnected
The #yang active, hot, life, summer, male, day, odd, sun, fire #balances out the #yin passive, cold, death, winter, female, night, even, moon, water. It's a #duality that cannot exist without both parts. They are complementary opposites within a greater whole. There is a constant dynamic flow happening that continuously balances and rebalances these energies to harmonize the universe. So knowing both sides of our souls, allows us to embrace the terribly beautifulness and beautifully terribleness that is in every experience, person, and ourselves.
