I took a yin yoga class on a small dose of psychedelics recently. It wasn’t for recreational purposes. Trust me, after finding news of my mom’s breast cancer diagnosis and knowing my boyfriend will be gone for four months and longer for naval training.... I’ve been on edge. The class was so therapeutic. It brought up so many fears I had. Mostly revolving around my relationship with my mother. 🧘🏽‍♀️ . The vivid imagery of being in water chasing after her maternal energy. While flowing through slow postures, listening to intense humming and vibrational songs. It was transformational. 🌻 . The psychedelics helped me FEEL suppressed emotions I had been blocking. I was locking up, building walls, and creating a deep reservoir to hide all the emotional rapids that were building up inside me. I know I would help no one if I kept it all locked in. ✨ . I cried. The whole time. I cried all that I could and I LET MYSELF pour out. Everything that weighed me in anyway, I let out through my tears. I didn’t hold back at all. I left that class feeling a little less broken. I left Sedona with newfound confidence in my ability to help my mother, focus on school through it, and keep being me. Whatever that is. ⚡️ . Psychedelics and Medical Marijuana has been so useful for me and my own mental health struggles. I’m not afraid to admit it. You know what’s scary? Mental hospitals, losing my mom to breast cancer, and dealing with my PTSD over and over again. Suicidal thoughts. Smoking and chewing tobacco and consuming way too much alcohol. All of which are and have been a part of my life at one point and still can be. . . There are many outlets and I finally found two that provide me with real therapeutic support. I’m sharing this because I feel like it’s hardly talked about. But the natural remedies that come from the plants, flowers, and myceliums.. those aren’t the things to be feared. Not dealing with our fears is what needs to be shunned from society. Not responsible, therapeutic drug use. 👌🏽 . So I’m putting this out in the universe now. 2020 is for open mindedness. 💕

Good morning, friends. 6:30 came quickly. Morning yoga, shower, packing lunches, feeding little humans breakfast, gathering coats and hats and backpacks, shuffling to the car and I'm finally getting a moment to sit and breathe while my youngest still sleeps. 20min. That's all I have before I'm up again, baking for my mom's group at 9. 😴 These days go by so fast. I'm so thankful for cannabis and the relief that it's given me to slow down. To enjoy these moments that may seem fleeting in my life, but are filled with important moments of connection in my family. Sometimes I wish I would have found it sooner, but I know all things work in His timing. I am humbled by Him. #cannabisandyoga #cannabisphotography #cbdphotography #photography #cannabiscommunity #cannasociety420 #420 #420life #ptsdrecovery #cptsdwarriors #warrior #mama #onedayatatime #jesusheals #cannabisheals #plantmedicine #plantlove #cattree #houseofplants #sunrise #cannabinoid #endocannabinoid #endocannabinoidsystem #breathe #yogi #yogaforptsd

Good morning friends! ☕️ . I want to take a moment to recognize community - the cannabis community of course, but also just community in general! . Community is a collective group of people who all have the same common interests/mindsets/goals. They share some type of common ground that initially brings them together but what they end up with is much more. 🥰 . Have you ever been apart of a community? If so, how did it make you feel to be apart of it? Were you actively involved or more of an observer? For me, I have always been in some type of community, from performance arts to motorcycles to deadheads and yogis. I feel at my best when I am apart of something bigger than myself and where my contributions actually make a difference. 💃🏻 . The cannabis community here in AZ proves to be strong and growing larger by each day. As an Arizona native, I am so honored that I get to be apart of this and many other local communities that support the arts and music, healing, holistic health, sustainability, and more! . Community is a family that you decide to be apart of. It is there for you to provide knowledge and wisdom, never-ending support, a genuine interest in seeing you succeed, and a love that always holds space for you to grow and allows you to be you. 💗💗 . . Now the question, what do we do to give back to our own local communities? 🤔

"Finding yoga to aid recovery from a long-standing running injury I eventually found a feeling of having come home. A community of people with compassionate values & actions, which seemed so alien to the corporate world I had been living in for a number of years. The subtle potency of yoga, meditation, pranayama & community started to create a paradigm shift where the world appeared differently. Full of hope & magic, rather than fear & sadness as had been before" . . Meet our good friend @andy_nathan_yoga who is joining us in person for a special event @theyogashed this Saturday, where he'll be sharing more of his story; where we'll share food, a film and will be led through mantra meditation - a kirtan - to celebrate & bond with the community we've created together - all in aid of @ourmala It's a shame you can't all be there with us! Here's more of Andy, in his own words, and why mantra matters 💚 . "During this period there was a miraculous escape from a life-threatening car crash which led to 3 months off work, a herniated cervical disc & a deep depression. This also led me to realise first had that when you get a 2nd chance, life has much more to offer . To cut a long story short, moving beyond panic attacks, depression & anxiety, surviving the effects of PTSD to a life of ‘rich’ experiences to inspire & connect, teaching from a place of authenticity, compassion & humour, I lead classes which offer students the opportunity to go on their own journey of self discovery . A key practice that started to create hope, self confidence & purpose was mantra meditation. A practice that led me to overcome my biggest fear - singing in public. And that’s what I do now! But it wasn’t love at first Om. It took many months to be comfortable in classes & workshops that featured spirituality & chanting - which at first felt weird & uncomfortable . Mantra meditation is not only a means of self-soothing, it also helps open our voice and allow energy to be drawn from our pelvic floor muscles (Muladhara Chakra) up to our throat (Vishuddha Chakra) - which is said to be where we find congruence - our ability to speak our truth, say what we mean & mean what we say "🙏 .

I said it once and I will say it a million times again. The Cannabis Industry is not for the faint-hearted. . As I enter my 3rd year as a professional in the industry, I reflect on the last 2 years and what I have gained by learning the ins and outs of the ever-changing field of cannabis. . This Industry has shown me that my main purpose in life is to help teach people ways they can heal themselves. Cannabis has been the common ground for the thousands of people I have helped heal in some way or another over the last two years and that alone is simply amazing. 💗 . This industry has helped me see who I am as a person and as a professional. It has helped me see that I am not a “yes person”. I will always act within my own integrity and moral standards. . A former industry mentor of mine told me that I have a lot of what it takes but if I can learn “tact and timing” I will go far in business and in life. That lesson has proved to be true time after time and is something I am still learning to master. . When you have a real passion for something, in my case it’s holistic health, healing, human connection, plant medicine, mind/body/spirit connection, you know!! The normal stuff Lol!! You will work your ass off to see your passion and efforts pay off when you see the light in someone else’s eyes, face, and being. At the end of the day I feel good about the work I do. . In this ever-changing industry I have learned that your light is your business and your light does not always fit someone else’s business. It is with a heavy-heart but a very positive and hopeful outlook to opportunities that are ahead, that I say today is my last day at Territory Dispensary. . Thank you to all of the people who supported me along the way, who have taught me more about myself, the industry, and business in general. Thank you to the patients who allowed me into their lives and shared pieces of themselves with me. Thank you to my fellow DA’s. The heart, blood, and soul of this industry. The real heroes in the Cannabis Industry. Thank you all. Come see me today before I leave and keep an eye out to where you can find me next! 😘

Remember when you wanted what you currently have? ⚠️ Trigger Warning . . . . Do any of you feel this way during this time of year? To most people, the holidays bring joy, gratitude, love and a time to reflect on the year past. Honestly, it must be nice...for me it’s a trigger. Even writing this is causing my heart to quicken. Over the last several years I have noticed myself becoming increasingly pessimistic (or a realist...) This time of year brings back memories of unhappy things that have happened in my life. These things always seemed to happen during this time of year. It always seems that every time I try and cast the feelings aside and begin to be happy with my life or things start “going right”, something always happens to kick me back down. So my default (being pessimistic) is what my brain thinks will keep the “bad stuff” at bay. That’s why the abundance of gratitude, joy and happiness during this time of year triggers my PTSD. And that’s no way to live, so I’m a work in progress. It’s this time of year where my practice is most important to keep me grounded and connected to myself. As always, you are not alone ❤️ . . . . #yogadaily #holidayyoga #livingroomyoga #selfpractice #homepractice #yogaeverydamnday #yogaforall #yogaforptsd #gratitudeyoga #yogaforeverybody #yogaeverywhere #mondaymotivation #mondaymeditation #attitudeofgratitude #mentalhealthmonday #mostwonderfultimeoftheyear #candlelityoga #yogagirl #spiritual #spiritualbadass #reconnect #staygrounded #selfcare #loveyoself #youcomefirst #breatheinbreatheout #selfawarenessjourney #journeytome #youarenotalone

Yoga (noun); to connect, join or balance Yoga Therapy; A person-centred, holistic approach to health that works with all aspects of a person’s experience: body, energy, mind, emotions, spirituality. It focuses on the person, not the pathology and views any disease as having a cause and effect. It sees the person in relation to their environment and therefore individual illness as a reflection of society’s illness.

This winter - join Diana Tokaji, C-IAYT, E-RYT500, M.Sc. for an amazing training- Surviving Assault: Yoga Therapy as Early Intervention Following Assault or Trauma – A Strength-Focused Approach for Health and Holistic Practitioners with Yoga Experience If you work with assault, trauma, acute anxiety, or PTSD, this series will support your visceral understanding of the physiology of assault, provide you with new physical practices, and guide you in holding space for another’s pain. Applying yoga therapy’s pancamayakosha model, or five sheaths – body, breath, mind, wisdom, bliss – you’ll experience how a strength-focused approach bridges body to highest wisdom, a process essential to assault survival and to finding one’s courageous path. Just as we might stabilize a painful broken limb prior to hospital care, the broken Being needs stabilization of body and mind when her world is uprooted. This is the primary step that we address: the acute stage that may occur immediately after trauma or repeatedly thereafter. How do we safely support a body that is traumatized? How can a client — and how do we — tap inherent wisdom at darkest hours? You will be guided to explore inspirational body and mind practices – resources that draw us toward a new midline, breeding health where trauma once held power. #trauma #yogafortrauma #ptsd #yogaforptsd #psychotherapy #therapy #dcareayoga #yogateachertraining #traumatraining #yogatherapy #yogatherapytraining

We all know #exercise and #healthyeating are both good for us, but our brains are hardwired to resist change. Change requires emotional self-regulation; however our emotional brain is often the cause of #selfsabotage when it comes to healthier living. #Willpower depletion, caused by our stressful modern lives, also affects our ability to resist temptation. Using hurtful unkind terror tactics in instigating lifestyle changes does NOT work especially telling someone they are lazy, are making excuses, or by making them feel guilt-ridden, or bad about themselves. Instead of starting with what’s wrong - we should always start with what’s already right, working from there, celebrating the tiny gains until they become bigger ones. “No pain, no gain”, is a toxic fitness mantra; we all need to cultivate self-compassion and care instead. Yoga is about cultivating emotional resilience and listening to our bodies, not pushing through or avoiding pain and emotions. The best way to work with a Client is to focus on #holistic #wellbeing (mind and body) and living with #vitality, #Prana. #Motivation comes from the heart: Health isn’t just physical - it’s a #mindset. The biggest motivation is that emotional hook - our partners, our children, and what we love to do. In Yoga we call this connecting with our purpose, or #Dharma. With any #YogaTherapy #Client connecting with one’s #intention #sankalpa and heart is exactly where I begin and come back to time again. #yoga #selfcompassion #selfcare #accreditedyogatherapist #yogaforwellbeing #yogaformentalhealth #yogafortrauma #yogaforptsd #emotionalselfregulation #startsmallstartnow #youareenough #bekind #lovingonselfforalifelongromance

Before the rise of synthetic medications, ancient leaders learned how to use the body's natural resources to prevent and cure illness. . Pranayama - breath practices - is our greatest internal resource that we have access to and by learning a simple breathing technique we can control our entire physiology. . When feeling stressed, try this: . Inhale through the nose for a count of 4 . Exhale out the mouth for a count of 4 . Continue this practice for five minutes or more and notice the state of your mind and body come to balance. .

PHASE 2 of my approach to Trauma recovery is like dipping your toe into cold water until you acclimatise and are ready to dip in the whole foot (metaphorically speaking of course!) A gradual process allows us to integrate at a pace we can manage. Key aims: · Complete unfinished survival responses · Connect to unexpressed emotions · Consolidate fragmented or distressing memories The next step is to complete unfinished survival responses to consolidate overwhelming experiences. Traumatic experiences leave their pattern in the nervous system and body. We may seem to over-react, under-react or inappropriately react to things now because we have been pulled into playing out an old pattern of something unresolved that happened in the past. This is our brain’s attempt to find resolution. It will continue until we resolve the original Trauma(s). We may be making decisions and behaving as if we are still in danger/unloved/unheard/being hurt. This is a thwarted survival response which can be safely and gradually discharged from the brain, body and nervous system using either a somatic approach, Emotional Freedom Techniques or EMDR depending on the duration and frequency of the events, the age they happened and the level of recall a person has. We may also have unexpressed emotions relating to situations involving loss, rejection, betrayal or injustice. These can be too frightening to connect to in everyday life. In the therapy setting, with good foundations and practice embodying tolerable emotions, we can begin to reconnect to and feel those feelings that have been bottled up. They can then be released and their power over us diminishes, allowing us to move forward. #yogatherapy #yogatherapymanchester #traumatherapymanchester #somatictherapy #thebodykeepsthescore #wakingthetiger #whenthebodysaysno #gabormate #besselvanderkolk #peterlevine #bodybasedtherapy #mentalhealthandthebody #complementarytherapy #alternativementalhealth #dropthedisorder #yogafortrauma #yogaforptsd #traumarecovery #ptsdrecovery #yogaformentalhealth #yogapsychology

In the early stages of Trauma Therapy (phase 1) I support people to become embodied and to experience safety. As they learn to embody their emotional experiences this gives a sense of containment. They are more able to allow emotions to flow without acting them out or repressing them. This is a powerful experience which is new to many people. As they become more experienced in the practices their capacity to reliably return to a grounded state of embodiment increases their resilience. This means their nervous system develops the capacity to get excited or stimulated and return to a calm baseline easily and quickly without the need to disconnect or shutdown. -- Throughout this process we are creating new neural networks wired for the experience of safety. We might include visualization, movement, brain stimulation through tapping, breathing or relaxation to have felt experiences of neurological safety. This is an important foundation and can be new for many people. If they did not have adequate safety, attunement and emotional support early in life, they may not have the experience of safety mapped into their brain circuits. It is important to do this thoroughly to contain any difficult experiences which may arise during therapy, preventing re-traumatization. #yogatherapy #yogatherapymanchester #traumatherapymanchester #somatictherapy #thebodykeepsthescore #wakingthetiger #whenthebodysaysno #gabormate #besselvanderkolk #peterlevine #bodybasedtherapy #mentalhealthandthebody #complementarytherapy #alternativementalhealth #dropthedisorder #yogafortrauma #yogaforptsd #traumarecovery #ptsdrecovery #yogaformentalhealth #yogapsychology

My body-based approach to Trauma recovery can be broken down into 3 phases: PHASE 1 Key aims: · Self-regulation · Embodiment · Grounding · Containment of emotion · Neurological safety · Building and recognizing resources First, I support a person to find methods to self-regulate so they can activate their social engagement system, learn to identify and return to their window of tolerance. This could include lifestyle changes, awareness practices, written tasks, movement, breathing, visualization or guided relaxation. Building a relationship is really important, especially for working with Trauma. Any issues in the therapeutic relationship, including negotiating boundaries, is incorporated into the process. As part of this process they start to become more embodied and awareness of their patterns (eg how they relate to others, muscular tension, breathing patterns, emotional patterns, coping mechanisms etc) grows. This can cause spontaneous, client-led realisations and changes. They learn how to ground themselves in the present moment, whatever may be going on externally, and to experience changing emotional states without becoming overwhelmed or shutdown. #yogatherapy #yogatherapymanchester #traumatherapymanchester #somatictherapy #thebodykeepsthescore #wakingthetiger #whenthebodysaysno #gabormate #besselvanderkolk #peterlevine #bodybasedtherapy #mentalhealthandthebody #complementarytherapy #alternativementalhealth #dropthedisorder #yogafortrauma #yogaforptsd #traumarecovery #ptsdrecovery #yogaformentalhealth #yogapsychology

“Don’t be afraid to be open minded. Your brain is not going to fall out.” . . Yoga for PTSD & CPTSD - If you haven’t yet done the work within. The Yamas and Niyamas, will trigger your limbic system - the seat of your emotions. Which means your past impressions are experienced as occurring in the moment as opposed to being relegated to the past. Depression triggers the hippocampus and the amygdala to activate the sympathetic nervous system. When that happens - “We have an on-load of stress hormones into the system. This can be of an acute level - causing anxiety, panic, fear, or anger. Or it can be sub-acute causing "feelings" of unease or insecurity.” The goal of yoga/meditation is to assess the breath (prana and the mind), adjust the practice and to take refuge in the sadhana. Additionally, Masters highlights the importance of Self-Awarness and Ahimsa…aka no shame, “if you feel that the experience is too overwhelming to manage, then seek out assistance in the form of Sangha or even professional assistance. When in doubt seek it out (help).” - Jeff Masters . . #yogaforptsd #yogaposes #afternoonsession #yogadaily #yogaoutdoors #beginneryoga #yogajourney #yogavibes #yogaeverydamnday #floridayoginis #mindfulnessyoga #veteransdayyoga #giveyogaatry #whichwaydoyoubend

@drbindubabu speaks to our Founder’s ability as a Trauma Resolution Author to intuit how best to support those going through traumatic life conditions, “I had the pleasure to meet Jo as a sister speaker at The Harvard Faculty Club. The passion she has towards her work has moved me. She is not only an amazing soul but her vast knowledge and her own encounter with Post Traumatic Stress in earlier years is absolutely beneficial for all who seek to learn about healing.” • • #PostTraumaticStress #YogaForPTSD #YogaForDepression #YogaForAnxiety #TraumaInformed #TraumaInformedYoga #TraumaSensitiveYoga #YogaTeacherTraining #OnlineYogaTraining • www.InnerBeatYoga.com

Thank u to all the warriors out there standing up for peace and justice in our world. It’s because of you that we enjoy our freedoms and I hope you know how much you’re appreciated. 👏🏼 My rates for vets are always half off of regular rates. If you feel that yoga may help alleviate any stress or anxiety that you may carry, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We can always just start with a simple discussion where I can answer any questions you might have about yoga, how it may help, and if we would be a good fit. There’s no pressure here. ⠀⠀ But a little FYI, I took a 20 hr Yoga for PTSD training and it inspired me to enroll into my 300 hour teacher training with an emphasis on healing... so when I’m done next year, I’ll have my 500 hr certification! In the meantime, I still have the skill set to guide you through a yoga practice with breathwork and guided meditation, all of which has been shown to relieve stress, tension, and anxiety. If private yoga is not your thing, there are tons of great studios around town, and of course, other forms of therapy from animals 🐶 , music 🎵 , and art 🎨 to seeing a good therapist. Wishing you peace and love. ❤️ #veteransupport #theuniversehasyourback #youaremagic #yogaforveterans #yogaforptsd

It’s a privilege to work with Veterans, giving back in some small way to people who’ve sacrificed so much for our freedoms. In honor of #VeteransDay , I’m re-sharing key takeaways from a @cnn piece I did on the benefits of yoga-inspired training techniques for Vets with PTSD.🇺🇸💪 . ✅QUELLING THE FIGHT-OR-FLIGHT RESPONSE Being in danger naturally triggers our sympathetic nervous system, increasing heart rate, blood pressure, respiration and stress hormone production. Unfortunately, trauma survivors often have difficulty modulating this ”fight-or-flight" response, switching into to it at inappropriate times or even being chronically stuck in it. Thankfully, breathing deeply can reverse the fight-or-flight reaction. Just 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing with full exhales elicits a "relaxation response," slowing heart rate, blood pressure, stress hormone production & respiration—switching out of fight or flight and into the rest & restore, parasympathetic state. . ✅RECONNECTING BODY & MIND A common symptom of PTSD is a sense of disconnection of mind and body, and disassociation from surroundings and the present moment. Practicing yoga-inspired postures and exercises with an emphasis on proprioception (limb position in space), managing physical sensations (actively increasing/decreasing muscular effort or stretch) and connecting breath & movement, helps Vets regain a sense of control, attention and presence in their bodies & minds. . ✅USING MINDFULNESS TO STAY PRESENT Research supports mindfulness meditation's ability to decrease anxiety and depressive symptoms as well as alleviate PTSD symptoms in combat veterans. Because PTSD pulls us into past memories as though they’re happening now, I use a breathing-based mindfulness meditation with Vets, so their breath can serve as an anchor to the present. This enables them to notice changes in their breathing as memories come up and then retake control of their breathing and thoughts, fostering better emotional regulation. .

Trauma can change your brain, leaving the survivor in a place of total darkness. Trauma can leave you isolated, leaving the survivor so lost and so disconnected from the world. Trauma causes depression and anxiety, leaving the survivor feeling totally out of control of their body, mind and soul. Trauma sensitive yoga is non-assist class specifically designed for people who have experienced emotional or physical trauma. Leslii Stevens is there to provide a safe and professional guidance. These classes are designed so that the students are in control over what they are doing with their body at all times. Studio 23 is a small safe environment, making this class and space more comfortable for those individuals who find it difficult to be in big groups. Self care is the first step in recovery. Yoga reshapes our body, mind & soul and helps the survivor of trauma to heal from their injuries. learn to heal from the inside out with yoga https://www.studio23hudson.com/yoga . . #sharingmymagic #yogaforptsd #yoga #classroom #injury #headtrauma #traumasensitiveyoga #healing #PTSD #recoveryafertrauma #namaste

It’s our honor to share the gift of yoga with our local veterans at the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center here in Augusta. Each week we work to help them heal and rehabilitate from the physical and emotional struggles of PTSD. Providing them with the healing modality of yoga is only one tiny way we honor them for their service. Today, we bow deeply in gratitude. #veteransday #createspacegivelove #beayogi #yogaforveterans #yogaforptsd #yogainaugusta #projectcreatespace #Repost @robertsturman ・・・ Veterans Day 2019. “I joined the military because I love my country, but also because I wanted to bring yoga to the military community” • Meet Staff Sergeant Kristen Schoeffel ~ United States Air Force @theyogagypsea • Pictured in Washington DC.

Today, we express our deepest gratitude for the men and women who served our country to preserve our freedom.⠀ ⠀ An essential part of the yoga practice, mindful focus on breath, can help reduce the effects of PTSD. Bringing attention to our inhales and exhales helps to ground us in the present moment and diminish anxiety. ⠀ ⠀ #yoga #yogaforbeginners #yogaeverywhere #yogabenefits #yogaforveterans #yogaforPTSD #yogabeyondthestudio #veteransday

Good morning friends. . Once again, I have been at the mercy of a VERY BUSY schedule from October until now. Between working in the dispensary, doing promos for Item 9, starting going back to school again, we went on a Disneyland trip for 5 days, came back, found a new place to live, packed, moved, and settled into our new place in Scottsdale! . Now it’s November, the holidays are around the corner, @mrtreye and I have some big goals to look forward to in the months to come, my career path is about to change once again, and come January we will both be diving head first into school! 💖 . With all of the shit that is constantly going going going... it is SO IMPORTANT to SLOW YOUR ASS DOWN. Take a minute to yourself. Take a dab, get on your mat, and breeeaaattthhheee. . Thank you to miss Jennifer Miles, her @cannakula class yesterday sponsored by @item_9_labs was a great reminder for me to keep my energy flowing and keep my self-love strong. Thank you for that @jennifer.miles.wellness 🧘🏻‍♀️

PTSD IS mind blowingly PAINFUL! 💣 ... (meeen) . Før min IG profil her om min balancering med PTSD, blev til! FØR jeg talte med @m0rtenp og @jasperritz fra #podcastdiagnosen DA snakkede og indspillede Andreas fra @heartbeatsdk og jeg min historie! . Den er nu så småt på trapperne! 🙌🏼 . Jeg har lige lyttet til det første afsnit (den er delt i tre kortere afsnit) Det er RIMLIG INTENST! At lytte til igen efter et lille års tid! Andreas (og hvem der ellers har knoklet med den) har seriøst gjort et godt stykke arbejde! Jeg er hudløst ærlig (nok fordi jeg på det tidspunkt ikke er på medicin) . Min POINTE (endelig 😅) er hvor utroligt BEFRIENDE det er at få italesat! For jeg har ladet det sorte PTSD monster fortære mig indefra! Jeg har givet det en masse unødig næring ved at holde det så hårdt skjult for omverdenen! Jeg har skammet mig over min diagnose - tænkt at jeg ikke kunne noget som helst andet! (Det gør til tider stadigvæk) men hold nu op hvor er jeg også kommet langt med at få det italesat! Jeg er ikke færdig endnu, men jeg kan bære det anderledes i dag! . SÅ TAL OM DET SVÆRE I LIVET! Hver ikke bange for at sige det højt eller for at spørge til det svære! Det skal ud før det slår rod i dig!! . ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ . Glæder mig og er samtidig mega nervøs for at dele de tre afsnit med jer! Men det hele er med en god mavefornemmelse😌🧡💪🏼🤞🏼 . #ptsdawareness #ptsd #mentalhealth #talomdet #mormedptsd #yogalife #yogaforptsd #medicinskyoga #natureheals #jegersåmegetmere #takforjer

People thinks yoga is all physical work but once you do it, once your practice grows, you understand that all poses are somehow related to life, and the more you do them, the more you understand your negative and destructive patterns that need to be change. Yoga opens up your eyes and give the wings that where hiding for you to fly straight to freedom. #se1 #se13 #london #lewisham #moreyoga #moreyogalewisham #yogacommunity #yogi #yogastudent #teacher #yogateacher #yogaforstress #yogaforanxiety #yogaforptsd #yogaoutside #yogalove #londonridge #grateful #bermondsey #rocketyoga #yogayogis #yogaforeveryone #yogastudio #yogaposes #ashtangayoga #davidswanson
