CONFRONTING FEAR IS THE DESTINY OF A JEDI . Had to make a quick stop in Tatooine to grab some supplies! Master Luke says we are ready to face the last remnants of the empire... but first we need a fast chip!

ILLUSION . I love a good illusion, a picture that makes you look twice to figure out what is really happening.

CRESCENT . The crescent symbol was long used as a symbol of the Moon in astrology, and by extension of Silver (as the corresponding metal) in alchemy.[3] The astrological use of the symbol is attested in early Greek papyri containing horoscopes.[4] In the 2nd-century Bianchini's planisphere, the personification of the Moon is shown with a crescent attached to her headdress. . While I’m not sure about how it relates to excitement, I will say that anything related to alchemy gets me excited! Did you know my masters theses was about how 17th century museums and coffee houses shared alchemy and scientific knowledge with a more general public (including women?!) .

Crosses commonly represent the earth and the physical univers

CROSS . Crosses commonly represent the earth and the physical universe, particularly in Western culture, primarily from two associations: the four physical elements (earth, water, air, and fire) and the four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west). The astrological symbol for Earth is a cross inside a circle. This symbol, also known as a sun cross or solar wheel, has been associated with the sun and its four seasons. . #ShapeOfAsanas When: Dec. 10-14 It is known that people express their feelings through the symbolism of shapes: we can witness that in many aspects of life from art to marketing!

.

Triangle is an energetic and dynamic shape which is always

TRIANGLE . Triangle is an energetic and dynamic shape which is always associated with motion and direction. The lines are placed that way so our eyes automatically move to the top of a triangle or in the direction it is placed. Triangles can have different meanings. An upright triangle brings the feelings of stability and balance but the reversed one looks risky and ready to fall giving people a sense of tension. . Today I’m pointing my triangle up with a strong base to represent strength. You know from @katymiyayogi and my weekly hashtag #triyouryoga that we are massive fans of finding triangles in yoga shapes and combining them with digital art. . #ShapeOfAsanas When: Dec. 10-14 It is known that people express their feelings through the symbolism of shapes: we can witness that in many aspects of life from art to marketing!

mrs_khaleesi_gaither. SQUARE
.

The sense of square as a derogatory reference to someone con

SQUARE . The sense of square as a derogatory reference to someone conventional or old-fashioned dates to the jazz scene of the 1940s; the first known reference is from 1944. There it applied to someone who failed to appreciate the medium of jazz, or more broadly, someone whose tastes were out of date and out of touch. It may derive from the rigid motion of a conductor's hands in a conventional, four-beat rhythm. . While this kind of criticism may suggest contempt, being rigid and rule-following isn’t really all that bad. As much as I crave creativity, I also am strengthened by routine. . #ShapeOfAsanas When: Dec. 10-14 It is known that people express their feelings through the symbolism of shapes: we can witness that in many aspects of life from art to marketing!

mrs_khaleesi_gaither. Can you play a musical instrument? .
I grew up playing violin. Classic

Can you play a musical instrument? . I grew up playing violin. Classical orchestral violin, celtic and Irish fiddle... I dabbled in electric violin and bluegrass too. I also branched out and learned the basics of cello, harp and hammered dulcimer. I took some piano lessons and briefly considered learning the accordion. But I had a love hate relationship with playing music. I loved to play, but hated to practice 😂. Give me a song or throw me into a tent at a Irish music festival and I’d play for hours... give me scales and make me stand against the wall to learn correct elbow posture and I’d do the whole thing kicking and screaming. Perhaps these were my teenage foibles. Today I see practice, at least for yoga, as a positive and welcome interlude. The majority of my practice goes unrecorded. The warmups, the fighting out poses, the foundational flows are all present but only a fraction is glimpsed in these squares. . This week’s #triyouryoga was inspired entirely by a cross body bind we saw @renny_sito post. It’s a tough bind the lower you go down your leg but Katy and I both instant fell in love because it brought back so many (good and bad) memories of our orchestra days!! It looks exactly like how you would hold a violin or Viola... so we bring you #violinelbowpose (and violinists don’t judge the flattened palm 😂). . This weekly hashtag isn’t time sensitive! Save it, try it when you’re ready and tag @mrs_khaleesi_gaither and @katymiyayogi with the tag #triyouryoga ! Feel free to have fun, change it up, draw on your pic or add in some edits!

Tomorrow is the first day of #ShapeOfAsanas and we are starting with a CIRCLE . Circles represent completion, wholeness and harmony. Perhaps my best memory of this shape came from my wedding day. The wedding ring is designed to be an unbroken band- symbolic of a forever union. Of course, we had some issues with sizing and our actual bands were late, so we were married with slightly sticky, melting ring pops 😂 but today Jake and I both wear unbroken circles that signify our commitment to forever. . For my circle I’m bringing you a mix between forearm wheel and camel- I lift up from wheel to pop up for this shape. . #ShapeOfAsanas When: Dec. 10-14 It is known that people express their feelings through the symbolism of shapes: we can witness that in many aspects of life from art to marketing!

So I have no idea what I was thinking yesterday! Sometimes I’m so excited for a pose it is so hard to sit on the pic till the right day! I used to take my pics the day I posted them, but recently I have been taking my pictures on the weekends and then journaling in the captions before I post. I still practice most days (since asanas every day seems an unhealthy extreme that I don’t want to honour over listening to my body). But this allows me to seek inspiration throughout the week and really dedicate time to play on the weekends. . TODAY is Day 4 of #inverteverywherewithus and it’s NOT a handstand 😂 it is any funky inversion! This funky pincha variation uses the wheel under my shoulder to support the balance. I will say this is definitely an advanced variation! The wheel will wobble so if you aren’t yet comfortable with regular funky pincha I’d recommend checking out my amazing cohosts for more ideas! .

mrs_khaleesi_gaither. Yogi See Yogi Do .... for about two seconds! One of the things it took

Yogi See Yogi Do .... for about two seconds! One of the things it took me a long time to learn is that while there are truly some superhero-strong people out there, some poses are just pop ups. What is a pop-up? It’s a pose or shape you can hold for just a second before losing it. These poses aren’t taught in classes BUT that doesn’t mean they don’t have merit. They take a lot of concentration and prep, and can teach us quite a bit about non-attachment. If you find yourself frustrated that you can’t copy a professional shot remember these things: 1. Your practice is your own, as much as we find inspiration here on these squares, as much as copying and imitation is a great way to learn, ultimately you should strive to make a pose your own. 2. We all are in different stages of our practices. Comparing is always dangerous especially when you can’t see all the behind the scenes work and sweat it has taken to get a pose. 3. You don’t need a professional photographer or a nice camera to stand out. This was a hard lesson for me! I thought that with a professional photographer my pictures would somehow be “better” but it isn’t about just the picture... it’s the awkward faces I make getting into the pose, it’s the husky that attacks me half way through, it’s the rolling out of the pose that I also want to share. And while a picture may be worth a thousand words, it will never capture those moments. (I will also say that if you are bemoaning the dark light this time of year, a cheap and fast solution is to use @aglowpresets - it’s how I lighten and improve the quality of my screenshots). . Today’s pose was chosen by @yogaandchaigirl and inspired by @diceyoga As for the pose, Try it and tag me, or save it to play with later! Tag & check out the @ysydcrew if you’re shadow banned or want to find more pose inspiration! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My #YSYD Crew: @eileendelatorre@mrs_khaleesi_gaither @cece.carson@leighyogipilot@helen_garner_yoga@livinleggings@laraliam@susanbishopyoga@bethanysmithyoga@yogi.bree@yogaandchaigirl@yogamand@geeoice_yoga@bentley.likethecar@natashaswinter@seacoralyoga . . . #yogiseeyogido #ysydcrew #dragonsquat #calisthenics

TRIBE . Today I had the unexpected pleasure of taking a class at @lux.veda ‘s studio 405 Yoga. Even though Megan and I live in the same state, we’ve never had the opportunity to meet before, so we made last minute plans to grab coffee after my skin cancer appointment this morning. Megan radiates energy! We immediately connected over yoga and movement and I knew we were kindred spirits. By the end of our super short coffee get together she had convinced me to swing by her studio and take a class before making the crazy long drive home. . I hadn’t planned on yoga- it took me forever to find parking and I got lost figuring out where the entrance was, but the moment I stepped through the doors I knew this would be special. It’s the little things. The sandalwood incense burning when you get in. The fact you leave your shoes in the outer entrance. The changing room labelled for “humans that identify as female”. The spacious ceilings and bright white interior that contrasts with a multi colour accent wall and a neon sign that reads YOLO. I could tell this studio was a safe haven. . I can’t tell you the last time I’ve been able to be just a student and allow myself to breathe and flow. I trusted @mireyuh entirely with my practice and she didn’t disappoint. She created a unique, full-mat flow that embraced natural movement and seamless transitions. Combined with @samanter_ ‘s awesome assists and superhero moment where she stepped up to run the class while Mireya fixed the music, I was hooked! . I’m so thankful for this community, thankful that today was even possible. I’m thankful for their radically friendly vibe and willingness to welcome a complete stranger. . . . . ******************************* #oklahomayoga #yogaokc #natarajasana #yogacommunity #405yoga #grateful #dancerpose #yogastudio #yogaeverywhere #poweryoga #yogaworld

Let’s talk about CANCER . Nope not fun zodiac sign. The kind that is almost a bad word in and of itself. Today I’m driving a 6 hour round trip to get my bi-annual skin cancer check up. It’s not pretty or glamorous. Checking for skin cancer involves monthly self-inspections, just like the self-breast exams OBGYNs recommend. You become obsessed with your freckles and moles. You smell like sunscreen year-round. It also involves frequent bathroom breaks because my specialist is so far away and I drink about a gallon of water a day- like I said... less than glamorous. But it’s IMPORTANT. Being healthy doesn’t always mean looking pretty or being comfortable. It’s the ugly hair you have at the gym or the sweaty face that ruins your makeup. It’s the awkward self exams and the long car rides to be able to see a doctor. It’s knowing that even when you do everything right you can still be at risk, it’s accepting that no evidence of disease is your new normal. I may never be able to say that I am 100% cancer free, but getting skin cancer isn’t the end of anything. It’s been a reimagining. A chance to rise stronger and more resilient, to appreciate all I have and can do... even when today that means lots of hamstring stretches to counteract how long I’ll be sitting. . #holidaystretchanddestress Post list: Day 1.Folds Day 2.bends Day 3.hip openers Day 4.Inversion Day 5.Pose which destress you Day 6.Pose which makes you happy Day 7.Yogis choice Hosts : @kwang_angkana @heartmaher @yoga_miss_tee @pigeatsfish @mrs_khaleesi_gaither Sponsors: @kdwapparel @mayyouknowjoy @madhippieskinproducts @omoiskincare #igyogachallanges #instagramyoga #yoga #yogisofinstagram #yogalovers #yogacommunity #decembertravels #decemberyogachallenge #stressmanagement #sugarcanepose #skincancerawareness #skincanceratayoungage #getchecked #psa

8 more days till #starwaryogis .... not that @yogijewels @clacuru and @norayogini are counting or anything 😂But thankfully while we wait there is a new episode of @themandalorian! . @jakobthehulk and I recently rewatched the films and I don’t think I ever realised how dark they are! I was so drawn in to the ornate costumes and the fine, unexplained details of alien cultures that I never really thought about how the friendships and romances built in 1-3 are destined to fail from the start. There is something incredibly human about having essentially superheroes and villains and blurring the lines between the two. It’s a reminder, perhaps, that we are never so far gone that we cannot return to the light, that recovery is possible, that we can still do the right thing even when we are weak or fallible. . #thatshitgotdeep #starwarsyoga #riseofskywalker #maytheforcebewithyou #slaveleiamashup #jedimaster #yogajedi #natarajasana #dancerpose #starwarsfan #nerdyoga #khaldrogo #sithkhaldrogo #khaldrogoandkhaleesi #khaleesileia #cosplaygirl #cosplayfitness

What makes you happy? When I got these amazing @kdwapparel leggings I promised myself I would NOT climb all over the wall with them like I did last time. Mostly because a small amount of shine rubbed off on my wall and while the pants looked amazing still, i ended up having to wash the wall 😂 I’m sure parents with small children who own crayons will empathise. But sure enough, here I am climbing on things because I cannot resist a good shape or a chance to use a cool space! What makes me happy? Trying something new! The harder the better! . Also ignore my 2-high baby gates. We have a husky puppy who has learned to climb so this is the only way to keep her from eating my yoga props!! . #holidaystretchanddestress Dec 1- 7 Do you ever feel like it’s very challenging to find time to practice before and during a the holidays?
