Recently I read a wonderful article with eight important quotes from eight beautiful yogis. As a fellow yoga teacher and a yogi, I had to share them here with you.
Every day we go to work. Eat lunch. Commute Home. Work Out. Make Dinner. Repeat. Do you ever stop to think about WHY you do the things you do? Are you eating the quinoa salad because you’ve made it a million times already, or are you thoughtfully choosing the ingredients and preparing the meal with care? In other words, do you do things simply because it’s become routine or is there a deeper intention behind your actions?
This year, I’ve been questioning why I do certain things. And of course yoga was called into question. In a recent Wanderlust Journal article, I asked Wanderlusters why they do yoga. In the same vein, I was also curious about the yogis who had taken another step from student to teacher. So I interviewed a handful of Wanderlust teachers with one question, “Why do you teach yoga?”
Hey guys! So I am finally writing something about yoga – another one of my greatest passions. A while ago, I did a yoga photoshoot with a good friend of mine (who also happens to be a professional photographer) in the beautiful Bole. Bole is a county-level city in Xinjiang Province, China, where Sailimu Lake (“Drop of Tear from the God”, as the locals call it) will take your breath away with its stunning views and soothing tranquility. Although it was in September, the temperature could easily drop below 0°C (32 degrees Fahrenheit) at the coldest hours. We woke up at 6 in the morning just before sunrise to do a photoshoot. Pulling me out of bed before sunrise usually turns into a catastrophe, but on that day it was well worth it. Take a look!
I was wearing a Lorna Jane sports bra, Nike mesh leggings, and signature black Nike sneakers. Lorna Jane has the some of the most stylish as well as comfortable sports bras I have ever worn. And Nike mesh leggings come in different lengths and have various shapes of mesh panels. They definitely add some style and fun to your workout sessions. 😉
