My Yoga Shelf (not shrine)

This is my yoga shelf. I’m not into altars or shrines. I’ve been called a rebel yogi, but I don’t mean to be; I just see things differently and I do what makes sense to me. I also love learning about the different beliefs that bring others peace. Since I recently moved I got rid of a lot of yoga books. I don’t like saving books. Letting go of texts for me represents faith that I have retained the important information and that I am making room for new ideas. On my shelf I have all my notes from previous classes, workshops and teacher trainings I taught in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, Italy, Abu Dhabi and other places. I have my outlines, student’s names, new ways

Unimportant Opinions

I think I make people feel safe because I know that it is not my place to have opinions about their choices. When students or friends come to me with a problem, I listen, I ask questions and I support them without telling them what they “should” do. Only once a certain amount of trust is established will I share what I would do. But still that doesn't mean they should do the same because what I would do isn’t that important. What is important is that we believe in each other and we support each other. I am so grateful for practicing non-judgment. Singapore is an incredibly diverse country! Here I have an eclectic mix of students who’ve become my close friends, all of who have values and life

My Dad

By example he taught me to do whatever I need to do to live the life I want to live. No self pity, just unemotional, practical, hard work. And then joyful, (often times gin and champagne infused) family party time! More than anything, my father is a family man. He also loves to have fun! In his 45 years with my mother he showed me that marriage is the highest blessing. Everything he does is to see his wife and children happy. He is the epitome of work hard, play hard. He is loyal, loving, and incredibly accommodating! Thanks Dad- you are the best!

Doubt Is Helpful

Doubt enables me to see more possibilities. With doubt I am more capable of expanding in all directions. Doubt keeps me engaged and on my toes. It keeps me humble. The world is changing so fast and anything is possible. Limbo is honest. My faith gives me the courage to live peacefully in this wild and crazy world. I surrender. Thank you husband, parents, family, friends, world. You grant me the courage it just be. While everything is in flux love and acceptance endure.

Not Today

Sometimes you just gotta say "ehh fuck it, I tried my best" and move on.... "If I have the energy I'll try again tomorrow."

If You Wanna Play With The Big Boys...

Growing up with three older brothers I learned that if I want to play w the big boys there would be no complaining. This post is for the powerful yogis out there and the inspiration for this post @diceyoga @fitqueenirene . Our bodies are different. There are reasons why I could feel like I am at a disadvantage but thinking like that is a waste and it's not even true. We are different and I'm doing the my best with what I got. And I'm happy with it. What's the point in over analysing? Everyone is different and it's awesome. I am grateful for people who are stronger than I am because they keep me inspired.

Right and Wrong...

The world is a big complicated place. I don't know what's right and what's wrong anymore But I can listen, watch and support while we try to figure out the appropriate course of action. I also can teach handstands.... 📷 https://www.sarafordphotography.com/home.html
