Here are your fresh Love & Inspirations for the week ahead:
“Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees”. – B.K.S Iyengar
2) Poem by Jeff Foster
- from the book “Falling in Love with Where you Are” – by Jeff Foster
Falling in Love with Where you Are
Dying to all
you think you know
Letting go of the image
of how life ‘should’ be
Sinking into the vast mystery
of the present moment
Embracing change and loss
as misunderstood friends
Falling in love
with where you are
This is the path
for those who know
there is no path
Only endless destinations
and never-ending beginnings
– Jeff Foster
3) Inspiring Talk from Russell Brand – 8 mins
- I Meditated Every Day & This Is What Happened To Me... Russell Brand
In this short video, Russlee Brand gives a good and simple explanation on meditation – how we are not our thoughts and feelings – and mantra and how it works to focus the thinking mind – like giving a child a yo-yo, so that we are not identified and controlled by the mind, so that we can be in higher service.
4) Music Playlist for Yoga Practice
- Pure Flow Yoga Magic 1 – Juicy, delicious beats and mantras to activate your PURE FLOW.
I love practicing to music to help me get in the flow zone. I made this 13 track playlist a couple years ago, and it stands the test of time. Put it on for background music, a gentle dance, or get some sun salutation movement medicine happening!
I’m brewing some new playlists too, so let me know if there are any standout trax that you’d like to hear more.

5)? Francie’s Interview with Daniela Garza Rois
“Devotion is my teacher…Before anything you are in life, put the word “devoted” in front of it. A devoted mother, a devoted sister, a devoted child…this way you know that everything you do in life in an offering, and everything that life brings to you is also an offering”.- Daniela Garza Rios
