“The bird who dares to fall, is the bird who learns to fly”.

I’ve realized that when one’s firmly stablished into the method, maybe that’s the point when you start to really ask yourself questions about who you are and what is your purpose. In a way, that leads to the need of looking at Ashtanga from a different and deeper point of view which also brings more doubts and fear. The common answer to this kind of feeling is usually “Do your practice and all is coming” but I kept my own thoughts about that until I realized the real meaning of “all is coming”. It is not an aim, a point we must reach. It is not who we WANT to be but, inevitably, who we become. And “take practice” is not only dedication to the method or to any practice. It also means awareness and faith. It felt a bit like looking at the ocean: if you pay close attettion, there’s immediate sense of self, how small we are, which comes along with fear. If you continue to observe, maybe you will realize that the ocean is God and you will feel part of Him and connected to Him. That’s when your mind cease questioning and you are present. There’s no sound but your breath and blue conforting silence.

#AwakeningFromDomestication

This has been my theme for 2017. You see I’m not exempt from ignorance. I have been there done that, but this year I couldn’t look the other way around.
+
That’s why I’m shifting. Everything about what I do. My mentoring work, my “yoga” (I’m not going to label myself as a yoga instructor), everything I do is shifting. +
As a mentor and workshop facilitator I was part of the problem as well. I was lost in my ego and in this culture. Behind the doors I would talk about this and I struggled but it was more important to “be part of the spiritual scene” as I want to make a living doing this so I didn’t care I wasn’t being conscious.
I thought this was the only way as in this culture and in the places where I have lived everything is about labels, certifications, who do you know, are you cool, you wear cool clothes, did you go to Peru and attended ayahuasca retreats, who are your teachers, are you attending cacao ceremonies, did you go to any music festivals this summer, etc.
I couldn’t be part of that anymore and I saw how I was getting lost in translation and I saw clearly how this culture was eating up my soul. +
Today I may be loosing popularity on Facebook amongst white women, I may be perceived as an angry Mexican, etc but it doesn’t matter. I can’t go back to the way it was.
+
I’m ending 2017 with big shifts and when I look at my soul I feel happy with myself and confident to everything I am doing, Whether people like it or not. +

If you want to support my work. Check out my upcoming retreat in Guatemala. This is not your typical “Yoga Retreat” that’s why I didn’t call it like that. It’s all about “Healing & Renewal wisdom”
Wisdom that lies within ourselves but we have lost connection to it.

The registration ends next month and although I know this is a time of big consumption, think mindfully where you want to start put your energy to.

All the info is on the website and the link is in my bio. I haven’t given out all information but there is going to be activities doing social work within the community in Guatemala.

Muchas Gracias!!!

It’s another strange and beautiful day here in Nebraska, the middle of December. As much as I love this 50*+ weather it’s scary. Hopefully I’ll see some cold weather and some snow soon, our planet needs it’s cold seasons.

Loving this post from @brittbsteele a beautiful reminder as we begin the holiday season. May our brush strokes be conscious acts of love 💕 ✨✨✨

Life is lived in the details..... .
I met this man in India.... truth is, I can’t remember his name nor the city where I met him.... I only remember slipping into his studio off a busy street and him spending 45 minutes showing me his art. He never went to school.... and he is in his late sixties now... but this art was his legacy. He handed me a magnifying glass to look at the detail of his painting — his brush was a single horse hair and at times he used a camel hair because the texture created a distinguishable unique brush stroke. .
We live our lives in the details. Right now, in this very moment, if you look around you will see, I will see, we will see that out bodies and our lives are a culmination of very tiny brush strokes...... that make up this one, holy, whole-as-it-is, life. .
Follow your heart and take the next right best step. That’s all we can do. 🙏🏻❤️

Loving you in the darkness of my morning prayer space ✨

"After surviving 9/11 my PTSD will be with me for the rest of my life. The sensation of thinking you are going to die that day never really goes away. It may sleep a bit, but is always bubbling right under your skin" @ericagarciayoga
.
NY teacher of yoga Erica Garcia had practiced before the attack on the World Trade Center, but in the months afterwards, she intensified her practice and teacher training of as part of her recovery. Now, she always posts under the hashtag #yogasavedmylife and generously agreed to share her words with us. .. In this picture you see me bridging the gap between Chango charging to war and the peace of Budhha. We all have a silent war that rumbles within. It's how you harness that energy that is powerful.... I lectured yesterday on how to take that force of Tapas (internal fire and purification) to find stillness, to sit with the uncomfortable so that you can find growth and what comes out is the beauty of your own soul... .
We all have a beautiful , fierce goddess within us. She is beautiful and strong. She's the one that stares back at you in the mirror when you really look in to your eyes to see deep within.
. As we begin to close out the year, we need to sit a reflect. Last night, I was giving a brief lecture on one of the Niyamas- Santosha (Contentment). Santosha basically challenges you to remain in a state of gratitude, which is the opposite of desire or lack. It is in a state of gratitude that we can bring in our blessings, foster growth. We do not need things to be different because our experiences have shaped us. I look at this picture and think... "Girl... You are one Badass! THIS is what it looks like to be 46 years old. THIS is what it looks like to be healthy and curvy. THIS is what it looks like to be a woman who has desire, passion, drive, and is in union of all that she is and embodies... I unapologetically always stand in my truth...THEREFORE I AM YOGA"

Yoga isn't a requirement, it's a conscious decision we make. ✨
There was a time before I came to know about this thing called “Yoga.”
It was in a time of my life where I felt down in my body & with my health.
I knew I something had to change if I was going to be the person I truly wanted to feel like and be.
Finally, my curiousity to try something new was sparked as I heard people around me speaking about Yoga and how great it was, but mystery of it made me remember.
Searching, I stumbled upon @tarastiles youtube videos.
Going in head first, I thought, "I can do this!" I laugh back at it now remembering those first beginning days of moving and just making it up as I went along because it felt so darn good!
.
Since those 10 years ago I've certainly realized yoga is more than a fitness activity.
Naturally it began to infiltrate into all areas of my life, starting with my eating habits. I wanted to be better and do better. Ever since yoga continues to be a light in the darkness, one I'm so grateful to have found.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

TRANSMUTATION
scraps of silk layered
on the cutting room floor,
pill box hats in stacks
with pins to penetrate any guise.
and i,
toyed with wooden beads
that slid through my fingers
with the crack of an abacus
losing its count.
her feet pressed the pedal,
the needle hammer roar
of machine and fabric fusion.

there was a small pine box,
used to powder pearls,
like ivory rosaries
they swathed the delicate
throat hollow
beneath my buttercup face
the tender place,
now yearning for your
lingering kiss.

and this,
the gray pearls,
the ones
that could not be pasteled,
with their arrested gaze
reflecting my own,
the color of the new moon,
a string of the same hue,
immutable.

and i danced barefoot
before mirrors,
one reflecting
an illusion of height
the other making the world thin.
oh, but i was light
radiating "girl"
knowing the joy
of its own distinct spin ©️ M.G. Iannucci 2017

Drawing: Woman with Beads

Dedicated to my grandmother, who was a seamstress, a creative genius, and a hard woman. She was one of nine, raised by a widowed mother during the Great Depression. Taking her designs to the fashion houses and runways of New York City, my grandmother always yearned to be noticed, for security, and for beauty. She manifested those desires through her work. I wish I had known to tell her, you only ever find them on the inside. Love takes many forms.

Deep breath in. Spacious breath out.
F i n a l l y. .

I just got done practicing yoga. A deep, healing practice, all by myself, for the first time in what feels like a long time. Lately, it’s been hard for me to find connection in my yoga practice outside of a class setting, but I feel like I just came back to what it means to practice with the fuel of my own devotion. Deep sigh. .
.
There’s so, so much going on right now, and every time I get a break I think, “What do I need to do next?” Well, it turns out, what I needed to do was just. Effing. Practice. I needed to find a space where I could be totally alone and undistracted, let the cell phone die, and practice. So that’s what I did. I came back home and remembered that I am not the hectic nature of my days, or the body that gets tired, or the mind that hops around. I am the light that pours in. 🌈🧡

Немножко расскажу о том, как прошел вчерашний день...
.
Что-то я вчера совсем расклеялась от переизбытка эмоций по случаю своего ДР. К вечеру аж голова начала болеть 😳. .
Знаете, вчера мне всем хотелось делать подарки)) Я даже приготовила такие маленькие подарочки 🎁 для своих учениц, т.к. вечером у меня еще был класс. Но потом подумала, что меня могут принять за ненормальную и решила все же подарить их ближе к новому году 😀. Потом, после вечернего занятия, когда уже в зале никого не было, я смогла выплеснуть все свои эмоции. Сначало услышала приятную мантру и начались какие-то танцевальные телодвижения, но поняла, что этого будет мало. Тело просило прогибов и растяжки ... и понеслось. Это было что-то между йогой и танцем. В общем, потом мне было хорошо... 🤗
.
P.s. благодарю всех за поздравления и пожелания! ❤️

The truth is anything can be meditative. It's not about stopping your thoughts or sitting in padmasana. It is being fully aware and present for whatever is part of your experience right NOW. Not what happened five minutes ago, not what might happen in the future, but what is here in the present. Some of my most meditative moments have come when I'm in nature, watching the leaves sway in the wind, smelling the forest floor after rain, tasting a ripe tomato off the vine. Not thinking about anything else except what is right here in front of me. True meditation is building the ability to stay present for all aspects of our current experience instead of becoming trapped in our mind.
