Movement Fundamentals with Namaste TV

Good morning! Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working through a new program from Namaste TV¬†called Movement Fundamentals. The program consists of 10 ‘animal inspired’ movements i.e. frog, monkey, scorpion, gorilla etc. I actually expected it to be relatively easy for me to grasp, however some of the movements are a little bit complex and require some time and repitition to grasp. I’m still trying to nail the bear-crab roll, martial arts kick, and pistol squat! ūüėõ The two photos you see below are a couple of my favourite movements from the program- the top one is frog and the one below is gorilla! I included photos of level 1, but in the actual program you will see level 1, 2 and 3 demonstrated by the program leader Slava Goloubov (he’s amazing btw!). I also absolutely love the corkscrew movement… However I’m still practicing it so that I can work up to level 3, which is done with the use of no hands! I love this movement because as mentioned on the Namaste …

The Surrender Experiment

Good morning loves!! <3 I recently finished reading a book that touched my heart in so many ways. It’s called “The Surrender Experiment” by Michael A. Singer. My husband read the book a couple months ago and kept telling me how much I would love it, and he was right. I practically had tears streaming down my face through the entire book! And not because it was overly emotional or sad or anything like that…. It was simply because the author’s words touched me to my core. The only other book I read that had the same effect on me was “I Can See Clearly Now” by Wayne Dyer. And actually, these two books share a similar message, so perhaps this message keeps showing up in my life for a reason. In “The Surrender Experiment”, Michael Singer takes us through the journey of his lifetime. He decides early on in his spiritual journey to simply let go, and let life take hold of the reins. Wherever life decides to take him, he accepts it with …

Find Meaning, and Move Along

Good morning loves, <3 Today I want to share a little bit about dealing with people and situations in your life that don’t necessarily match well with your energetic vibration… As you know already, yoga and meditation are a huge part of my life, and for me, they really are the key to sustaining balance and peace in my heart. But regardless of how much you meditate, or how peaceful you are (or at least try to be), situations will always arise that test your resolve and your ability to keep the peace. I don’t often have much negativity surrounding me but it does happen from time to time. I think the number one lesson I’ve learned when challenging experiences arise, is that you always have to come back to your heart… Come back to that quiet place within you, that knows the truth. <3 I find it very difficult to sift through intense, conflicting emotions because I am usually in such a loving state… So, the only thing I can tell you is that …

It’s Time to Wake Up

So many things have been hidden from us over the years… We’ve been conditioned to work and live systematically, and not in alignment with our true selves. It’s time to wake up.¬† Irek and I are on an intense and beautiful spiritual journey, and we want you to have the opportunity to expand your consciousness, and wake up to the truth. Because, the truth is out there, it’s available to us. It wasn’t always, but it is now, we just have to be willing to open our eyes to a new way of thinking and living. Without getting too deep, I will say this… I believe in a universe that is much more amazing, and a million times more mysterious than we could have ever imagined. You may have heard me talk about¬†Gaia¬†before, but if not, this is essentially what it is… It’s an uncensored library inclusive of hundreds of documentaries, series, and clips about topics such as: human origins, energy, quantum physics, yoga and meditation, spirituality, extra-terrestrials and much more. Gaia has had a …

Finding Your Calm Through Meditation

In late 2016 I started to take my meditation practice much more seriously. Prior to this year, I was meditating sporadically and found myself struggling to adopt a routine that worked for me. But, after a few months of practice, I have now come to a place where I look forward to it¬†each day and have come to cherish both the silence and profound understanding that meditation brings. As for the structure of my meditation routine, there isn’t really much to tell. I know myself well enough now to know that I don’t do too well with strict schedules or too much structure. So, sometimes I’ll mediate immediately following breakfast, and before heading to the yoga studio. And sometimes, I’ll meditate directly after my yoga practice, before heading back home. I allow myself to go with the flow and permit my¬†schedule to vary from day to day, if necessary. This easy-going mindset¬†has actually aided me when keeping¬†up with my daily practice. I think it’s so important to understand that meditation gets easier over time and …

My Top 3 Asanas for Stress Relief

We live in a very fast-paced, somewhat chaotic world… it’s so easy to become overwhelmed,¬†stressed out, anxious, etc. The key is recognizing when you’re in these negative states and¬†neutralizing them as quickly and calmly as possible. Therefore,¬†I thought it may be helpful to share with you¬†my top 3 asanas for stress relief. If I ever feel like I can’t catch my breath, ¬†these are my go-to postures. I spend anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes in them. Puppy Pose The first posture is called Puppy Pose. Puppy is a great stretch for the shoulders and spine. Personally, when I‚Äôm in this pose I feel an overwhelming sense¬†of surrender to the posture; this gives me the ability to let go of any tension or stress I may be carrying. If you‚Äôre a beginner, this posture may actually feel quite¬†intense on the shoulders, so take it slow and only go as far as feels good. Savasana (with legs up the wall) The ultimate relaxation posture a.k.a. just¬†lay there and do nothing. Stay in Savasana a minimum of …

Love is a Practice

Love is a daily practice, a journey…¬†It’s not without darkness, but we must be thankful for the darkness, for without it we could not define the light. Don’t let your troubles, your pains, become an excuse to hurt others, whether passively or actively. Use your vulnerability instead as a way to go deeper into the choice of love. Do your best to radiate on a high frequency of love and kindness no matter what the situation. There are always things to be grateful for, and always lessons to be learned. Send love to everyone you know, to everyone you meet, to all living beings. This love will be drawn back to you. We always have a choice. I choose love. Namaste, Molly xo __________ “If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” – Osho
