Yoga in jeans.
I normally choose my clothes thinking of their functionality rather than just looks. These pair of jeans with elastane fibre is perfect to keep me warm and also allows freedom of movement and flexibility. They’re perfect for a long flight (15 ½ hours, in my case!) and also for some good stretch while waiting in airports...

Lost in translation...
A 10-hour waiting at the airport before a 15½-hour flight asks for a good stretch.
A 3-week family time to celebrate my father’s life, revive memories and solve/dig some matters in a very raw honest way asks for some clarity and cleasing of the mind.
You cannot do just body or just mind. We are whole, holistic beings. One affects the other, no matter what. You cannot meditate with a stiff body in the same way you cannot have a flexible body with a rigid mind.

her rebirth was stunning she lifted herself up from the depths of despair, grasped her dreams, embedded them in her heart, and walked forward into a future that only her will and her vision could control . ~ yung pueblo - r e v i v a l
'Toda mulher contém, em si, uma Medicina. Um dom de cura que carrega e que manifesta sua missão de alma, suas possibilidades de expansão de luz por onde passa.
Mas o grande mistério disso tudo é aprender a desvelar mais profundamente: cada mulher não somente contém uma Medicina; mais que isso, ela É a própria Medicina.
E a curandeira se revela quando, então, aprendemos a nos olhar no espelho profundamente, descobrindo antes de tudo como nós somos a cura para nós mesmas.
Assim, a Mulher Medicina se revela quando desapega-se do desejo de curar o outro, da ambição de encontrar soluções e equilíbrios à vida alheia, e dedica-se à sanação das feridas criadas em si. E como consequência, naturalmente, a beleza desta sanação irradia por onde ela passar...’

'Every woman contains in herself a Medicine. A gift of healing that carries and manifests her soul’s mission, her possibilities of light expansion wherever she passes.
But the great mystery of all is to learn to unveil more deeply: each woman not only contains a Medicine; more than that, she is Medicine herself.
And the healer reveals herself when, then, we learn to look deep into the mirror, discovering first and foremost how we are healing ourselves.
Thus, Woman Medicine reveals herself when she detaches herself from the desire to heal the other, from the ambition to find solutions and balances to the life of others, and dedicates herself to the healing of the wounds created in herself. And as a consequence, of course, the beauty of this healing radiates wherever she passes ... '

Movement is Medicine
Since the time we are born until the last breath of life, movement is what makes us alive, is what we are suppose to do. To stretch, open up de eyes, to reach out to our mother’s arms, to turn around in our tummies, to crawl, to walk and so on… It all starts with movement. The moment movement ceases, we are gone. Or because we have died, or because of a illness, and slowly we start to shut the system down.
I have been interested in movement since an early age. I always liked to explore the movements of my body - which earned me so many broken bones and bruises and injuries.
I didn’t care, I wasn’t put off by any of those misfortunes. I kept going, exploring.
This natural inclination awakened my interest for many activities where I had to use my body as a tool. From dance to martial arts, from Soma theraphy to yoga. .
What movement do you use as your medicine?
Yoga inside my Mom’s closet... I love this space because it is the quietest in the house, perfect for my practice routine when I’m visiting my family in Brazil. It feels so good to be home. Will try and capture my Mother practicing with me next time 👯♀️

Too busy for yoga?
The solution is simple: you prioritize. And priority should be YOU.
Our days are consumed by the things we need to do. But we can chose the quality of how we move forward. .
Our practice can not only make everything feasible, but also to make look back and feel good about how our day went.
If time is an issue for you to practice yoga, ask me how can I help you. .
