What's in a picture? Many of us live our lives surrounded by images carefully presented on social media, and this certainly happens in the yoga world - yes, including on this very page. Each image we see of yoga asana (or anything else) has the power to impact our view of how to 'do' yoga, when in reality a photo can only ever be a snapshot, one moment of one limb of yoga, chosen by its presenter. In turn the viewer only sees the aspects of the image they choose to see. I'm not here to list the positives or negatives or such photos, merely instead to remind you that each photo has its own context, history and purpose.
In this image you see me holding an arm balance that for some may seem 'out of reach', and for others may be 'preparation' to move beyond. The photo doesn't tell you I held the pose for just two breaths, and you may not have noticed I am sticking my tongue out in effort and concentration! The photo doesn't tell you that just two hours earlier I held this pose with control for the first time ever on that side. It doesn't tell you that this is a huge marker of personal progress as the physically weakest spot in my body is a my right hip flexor. It doesn't tell you the kind of day I had that day, where my mind was, and how effectively I was practicing yoga (rather than one particular asana). It holds no connection to the kind of class I had just taught. Use pictures, enjoy pictures, inspire and aspire, but never forget their context within our wonderfully complex, simple, human existence. Remember the being, not just the doing.

Baudelaire, "Dışarıdan, açık bir pencereden içeriye bakan kişi, kapalı bir pencereye bakanın gördüğü kadarını göremez hiçbir zaman." der. Kapılar ve pencereler bu cumartesi @bisanthegallery de ardına kadar açılıyor. “Görmek” için buyrun.

Lovely view this morning #thisisbrighton. Today consider how much of our time is spent looking down: Phones, computers, preparing food, talking to our kids or simply avoiding another persons gaze.

Spend more time looking up! It changes your outlook on the world and if things get to you what better way to find space than to look up.

It’s also great fun to look up, #gaze at the sky or admire a building in public. Just wait and see who joins you 😊

Traveling kali ini belajar banyak banget. Belajar untuk lebih bersyukur karena dikasih kesempatan untuk bisa menjadi saksi atas keindahan karya Tuhan💙 belajar juga untuk mensyukuri hal kecil yg kita jarang ngeh bahwa itu salah satu kasih sayang Tuhan: Bernafas❤️
Sempat takut ketika sampai di Leh akan kena Altitude Mountain Sickness, karena ketinggian nya diatas 3.500m. Awalnya sempat sesak nafas dan susah tidur, dan disitu saya sadar betapa saya jarang mengucap syukur atas hal yg kecil2 yang seringnya saya take it for granted. Emang bener sih kata orang2,
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

So many things I want to say but can't find words to express them... Not #perfect yet but striving towards #perfection with #persistence because my #passion won't let me stay #regular
Anger birthed it, Love sustained it

這趟旅程應該是學習的旅程,沒有過寒流來襲時潛水壓力大到嘴鼻流血😱,冷到一個不行,慢慢適應了……,沿路走走看看,遇見的人都對我超好,還有老闆把自己養殖技巧告訴我(都不怕我偷學),還說了很多自己家裡事😆,只見過一次面的朋友,還有老闆自己朋友來了說你有客人先招呼,他卻說……沒關係,(指我)他是我兄弟的😆,還有故鄉的好友兄弟,很多很多的感動……,也許我不好,但是我願意學習,這是我的期許🤗,還有……回來看到我的幸運草開花了,好美~好開心❤,也祝福各位了😄#diving#sky#ocean#cloud#plant#color#travel#precipitation#gaze#landscape#Heal#feel#Cherish#miss#Oxalis#wanderer
