Yoga for Flu Season
This winter, a lot of north hemisphere yogis on my dash have been complaining of flu symptoms. All the inversions and strenuous poses can make yoga a real challenge when you’re dealing with chest and head congestion! Here’s a simple, short flow for restoration without any dizzying postures. Be well!

Who ever thought that the respiratory system could look like a tree?
you dont understand how fucking rad this is
Lungs, like trees, are a fractal system. That’s why. Haha.
The former South African president died today at age 95. Remember him through his uplifting and revolutionary words.
There is a kind of crying I hope you have not experienced, and it is not just crying about something terrible that has happened, but a crying for all of the terrible things that have happened, not just to you but to everyone you know and to everyone you don’t know and even the people you don’t want to know, a crying that cannot be diluted by a brave deed or a kind word, but only by someone holding you as your shoulders shake and your tears run down your face.
if you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all — give yourself permission to put your healing first. quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. and trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough.
