Do the impossible because you can!!! What? Why? How? ... because it opens you to more JOY. Doing something you think is impossible changes your perspective, moving you from a contacted state of “HELL NO” to an expanded state “YES!!!!” 💪🏾. When you take the LEAP you will shift and you will see the possible within the impossible. This is transformation!!!

The statue above is the Nataraja or lord of the dance. In his cosmic dance, encircled in a ring of fire 🔥, Shiva is dancing on the figure of a dwarf, who is sometimes identified as Avidya (ignorance). Through the dance ignorance is put in its place, and, with devotion to the dance (practice) over time, the vails of maya are remove and clarity prevails. This is transformation!

Though a consistent yoga practice whatever is clouding ⛅️ your vision begins to clear and you can see a pose as possible ☀️ . ... You know that one pose. The one you said you could never do. You thought you weren’t flexible or strong enough to do. Yes, that one POSE is POSSIBLE. So, do the IMPOSSIBLE, because YOU CAN! That’s TRANSFORMATION! 🤍🤍🤍We appreciate our yoga students. Thank you for practicing with us. We are stronger together ❤️❤️❤️. Thank you to our teachers who are continuing classes now: @bblondieasaurus @firedancerfox @yoga_julieflury @pasho60 @everyday_healing_energy @wherez_be_wally @lindadbrody and all those who are taking a breaking during the pandemic ❤️❤️❤️

Gratitude for our yoga sisters @mikhaylastarblossomlife @mspaeonia Much love and gratitude for our connection🤍✊🏽. #yoga #poc

🌞 happy summer solstice🌞

The solstice marks the onset of summer and is the longest day. Today we honor the light of the sun that radiates within each of our hearts. Cheers to the light of awareness.

Today is the day to revel in the light and play outside, soaking in the energy (sunscreen of course).

May the light carry you through summer, bringing joy and happiness into your world. Enjoy practicing revealing the light in the heart with a backbend practice. Set an intention that helps bring courage and hope.

🌚Back to Basics🌝

This flow of poses are (most) the basic seated yoga poses. The poses represent the basics of working the hip joint in various positions. Like all things basic, they are not simple or easy. These poses represent the building blocks of an asana yoga practice. Practicing these poses is a transformative. lifelong journey to know our true selves. Reminding us, no matter where we are in our practice, the practice begins and grows from the basics.

At this time, it feels right to return to the basics. The basics remind us we all started somewhere on our yoga journey. These poses take dedication and devotion to unlock. These poses cannot be forced but literally and figuratively unfold over time. These poses release our emotional holding patterns created through our life experiences .... our fears, our stressors, our anxieties our triggers ...

🔥There are no shortcuts there are techniques.
🔥There are no magic pills there is alignment.
🔥There are no easy ways around only through.

Practicing these poses can make us feel uncomfortable at times, overjoyed at times, tearful at times… It’s a journey we choose because on the other side it is worth it.

The cellular-level changes that a yoga practice can bring to your body

I love the simplicity of this article. It describes why we move more easily when we practice yoga.

Bhava loves questions.
Let us know what you think. Even more reasons to hit the mat.

Join Linda tomorrow and experience a children’s yoga workshop.

This sample class will give you an a feeling for what you will learn in this 95-Hour Children’s Yoga Certification and give you time for some Q&A. 

Discover the difference of a training inspired based by Global Family Yoga’s curriculum developed over the past 20 years

Do you have a pain in the neck?
Can you move your heard side to side without pain or soreness?

With added stress and time on all of our devices our heads are in a forward position causing tension tension builds- up on around the neck and shoulders.

In this class, you will use yoga poses, myofascial technics and meditation to help relive this tension, allowing you to reduce pain and move with greater ease. Class will end with a welcome savasana. Ahhh 😌

🌑One of the most challenging parts of practicing physical yoga postures, is remembering all the different pieces that together build a full (purna) pose. When all of the pieces come together and a pose feels so good you shine. The sweet spot 💕🌑

Remembering to remember is the practice. As we find ourselves going into a pose and something feels off, that’s the moment where the body, the mind and the heart unite. We remember to press our thighs back and engage her legs or length our tailbone and draw the low belly in or plug in our shoulders or remember to simply breathe.

Practicing yoga teaches us how to be kind to ourselves when we forget and gives us the tools to help us remember.

May the 4th be with you

It’s taken me a while to figure out the words to describe my feelings and our shared experience. We’re still at the beginning but somehow it feels like we’ve been doing this for way too long. We each having our own circumstances and experiences, but as humans I feel we are at a point of frustration.

Frustration because of the decreased control of our own circumstances. We aren’t able to make plans because we do not know or even have a sense of what tomorrow will bring. We are floundering with our own survival, holding on to what we hold dear.

As I read this, it sounds almost too dramatic. But let’s be real! We are doing our best to hold it all together in an electronic world that wasn’t ready for this much demand and we weren’t ready to live in.

How can we find perspective and live with ease? How do we find balance with anxiety, grief and anger out of balance? How can we find control to manage our own sh*t? How can we be our best today?

The answer lies to this mess is within us all. First we must breathe. The breath brings us back to our bodies and helps bring balance. Then we must take action with what we CAN control. Ultimately, we must own our feelings and reactions to this sh*t-storm.

We control our breath! Sit back and breathe. Reach out to your community in our new electronic world. Find a new way to be supported and to give support.

I have seen so many wonderful examples of people who are owning their experiences in this time and are continuing forward as best they can. These are heart warriors. ♥️♥️♥️ Thank you ✌🏽

A Beginner’s Guide to Kundalini Yoga

About 2.5 years ago we began adding Kundalini yoga to our offerings. Learn more here Interested in Kundalini yoga, and want to know what it’s all about before you take a class? Here’s the primer you’re looking for.

🏄🏽‍♀️ Just making the effort can be enough, making all if the difference.🏄🏽‍♀️(#community #strongertogether 🤙🏽)

With the heaviness and erratic energy that is abounding around us, so too can be our routines. One day we can be energetic and step on the mat without even a second thought. The next day we may not even remember and, when we do, it’s too late and easy to say, “I’ll do it tomorrow”.

Erratic energy and erratic behavior wears on our bodies (nerves) and minds, zapping our energy and our resilience. So, I am grateful today for Rona who invited me to take her live streaming class. Having this scheduled and a commitment to another person got me to my mat before I taught the 11 AM ashtanga class with @pasho60 .

This is the power of community and working in service to others. Sometimes it’s easier to do something for another person than for ourselves. Sometimes it’s easier to do something with another person because we are supporting them. In the end, we are all stronger, more steady and feel less alone. And, as Pam said today, “when we feel stronger in our bodies we feel stronger in our lives.” See you on the mat! 💜💜💜


Hello .... I’m Marisol, I own and operate Bhava Yoga Studio. I’m grateful to be able to continue Bhava into its 16th year. I want to take the time to share what’s been going on since the studio doors were temporarily shut on 3/15.

Wow, it's been over a month since the Governor's stay at home order and the ordered closure of nonessential businesses. We have all had to change our daily routines and the ways we interact. As I write this, tears are rolling down my cheeks. The emotions are running across the spectrum and in some way, we are all adjusting. But, I miss my students, community and employees. I miss the times we were together, sharing experiences and practicing in our beautiful studio.

With all of the changes, there is a part of us all that wants to go back and there's another part that knows there's no going back. We are forever changed because of the coronavirus. During these times, I know for sure we are adjusting our priorities and being present for whatever comes next. We are doing our best to take the next best step.

Thank you all for continuing to practice yoga. I am grateful for all of our students who continue to step on the mat. I am honored to have created a space for our beloved teachers to continue to share yoga and honoring those who need space who aren't on our schedule right now. I am happy to serve our community by offering Bhava classes based on everyone's unique needs and circumstances. Let's be real, many of us are struggling to make the ends meet and anxious about what the future holds.

We will go back to our schools, offices, studios, movie theaters . . . but, there is a part of us that will remember. We will remember that slowing down, social distancing and living in the present moment opens our eyes, minds and hearts to what is truly important. As we move through the changes in every aspect of our lives our bodies and minds are stressed and exhausted, even if we don't notice the signs. So, we need time and space to take care of ourselves. Now more than ever we need to treat ourselves with love and respect so we can sustain and thrive.

Thank you for your continued support.

Much love and respect,

🌸🌼Hello Yoga Community 🌼🌸

We hold our attitudes, feelings and reactions in our hips. With everything going on now, a lot can be said about your experience by looking at how you’re holding you hips.

The jaw mirrors the hips. If our jaw is tight, we are gripping our hips or holding tension (we may not even realize we are holding tension 😬😮😧😳 or realize we are 😩 😫 😢😡).

You gotta let that sh*t go. Releasing tension can feel scary or unexpected. That’s why we created this video to give you a routine that helps balance and release tension gradually.

Bhava will post more helpful tutorials and sequences.

Questions welcomed

We are happy to say that our Live-Streaming classes are giving many students the opportunity to practice during these challenging times. We are grateful to continue to serve the community and encourage you to stay connected with your yoga practice.


Good morning Yoga Community 🌝
•What are your ideas on how to sooth and nurture your senses?

Our senses are the gateways to our mind, body and hearts. Nurturing our senses helps what enters to be received more fully and completely.

Slow down, take a nap or melt into warm sand are ways for us to soften and nurture our senses while calming or nerves.
