"Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."
~Douglas Adams It’s Day 11 of #inspiredyogis and this is one of my favorites, Eka Pada Koundinyasana 2 or EPK2 👉Photo tip: When you have puffy clouds outside- shoot outside if possible. With Snapseed either Drama or HDR settings will blow up your sky adding some stunning contrast to your composition. 👉I know many of you are struggling with weather this time of year and this is the only time of year you want to be in Phoenix. When it’s 119 degrees in a few months you’ll be happy you’re not here. 😜 For now, when I see clouds outside I shoot outside just to get this effect. 🙏Just another example of the new awareness to my environment and the local mini-adventures that come from this igyoga journey. 🙏 🌀If you are new to EPK2- read up at yogajournal.com/poses/2479 👉Don’t write this pose off - read up and give it a try! You may just surprise yourself with a breakthrough!👊🌠🙏 🌠Watch @monkeymix next for Day 12! XO! #yogilovebombs @patbailey @monkeymix @gordonogden - @gordonogden- #webstagram
I show affection for my pets by holding them against me and whispering I love you repeatedly as they struggle to escape from my arms
Happy baby pose for yoga challenge of the day. And I am one happy baby with this weather.
Long sleeves and shorts are the best.

Get out and run.
Do not worry about the rest.
Make running a lifestyle. A daily habit, like brushing your teeth. If you run 300+ days a year, every year, for several years, good things will come your way. Start now. Doesn’t matter if you are 16 years old or 66.
If you want to be a decent runner you must get out and run; the rest is just noise.
Get the running in first— that is the foundation. Then: Eat mostly good stuff. Get enough sleep. Stretch if you want to— or don’t. Lift if you like lifting. Cross-train if it makes you happy. Wear minimalist shoes or big bulky ones, whichever you prefer. Listen to music when you run, or not. You can carry water with you on a long run, or you can go without. If you want to do a core routine, then do it— but first you must get out and run.
Run on trails, or streets, or on a treadmill, whatever works for you. Run slowly. Run quickly. Run up hills. Run in the rain. Run in the snow, the heat, the cold. Run into the wind. Run on the days that you do not feel like running. Run on the days that you can’t wait to get out and run. Run with friends. Run alone. Run races. Run in the country. Run in the city. Run in parks. Run when you feel happy. Run when you are depressed. Run when you have a ton of energy. Run when you are feeling like shit. Run when you feel good. Run in the morning. Run at night. Run before work. Run after work. Run.
