The presence we project into the world determines how the world responds to us. Don’t be afraid to be excellent, to be different, to be remarkable. Your vibes are your greatest weapon.

You can’t just say, “reminds me of a fic…” What fic??? This post is hilarious. ;)

@yarn-yogi Lmao the fic is Never Got No Good Doing What I’m Told by carpemermaid.

Draco works as a consultant for the Auror Department, much to Harry’s continued consternation. The idea that Malfoy’s got an ulterior motive and hiding something rankles Harry enough to follow him home, discovering that Draco lives a decidedly Muggle lifestyle. Harry, sure that he’s Up To Something™, stalks Draco all over Muggle London. Draco, all too aware of Harry’s latest obsession with him, decides to take him on an adventure.

Meanwhile, they both need to work together in a race against the clock to get a deadly illegal potion off the streets of wizarding London. Draco has ulterior motives when it comes to the case at hand, and Harry’s suspicions get the best of him when the pressure is on to arrest a suspect.

There’s a trigger warning because of Harry’s behaviour so if anyone is going to read it be careful with the content and check all the tags to see if there’s anything that you don’t like <3

Conquering headstand is always a big milestone for any yogi. I always tell my students that the tough part of this pose is getting into it, not “being” in it, because you have to use your abs to lift your legs up. Therefore, an amazing core exercise, as well as great headstand prep, is to lower and lift your legs from the initial ball shape to hip height with either bent or straight legs. Doing this will strengthen your entire torso and help you learn to stabilize within the shape while your legs are in motion, making headstand a cinch.

“I spoke to Meghan about my passion for yoga. I said, ‘You are a big yogi and love your yoga.’ She said, 'Absolutely, I love incorporating it into my life, it is something I have always done.’

They are very personable. It is very easy to talk to them because they are so open. They have a very jokey attitude. You worry that you have to be 'They seem amazingly comfortable together. You can see that it’s a perfect match.

This may have been her first official engagement, but she was a complete natural at it. She was incredibly observant about what we were talking about, and very interested. She picked up on quite a few things that I was saying, particularly in terms of my own diagnosis. She was very empathetic.”

Had an amazing time with @practice_radical_self_love yesterday! She teaches a body positive class and gentle yoga class at Leela Yoga Studio in Oakland! If you can make it out to her classes on Tuesdays definitely take her class! We also got to do some partner yoga together! We are such a contrast! She’s so tall! Haha!

It was the first time being flown in acroyoga!!! Ahhhhh! So excited! I was so nervous of falling and hurting her, but we both trusted and I flew!!

Excited for more partner yoga and acro yoga fun together! Glad to meet a fellow big body positive yogi from the bay! Need to have more hangout and meetups soon! Big gal yogis unite! 💛

Girl Meets World Talks

I keep enjoying this show so much wow and I just really want to give my opinion on the new episode Girl Meets The Secret of Life and the different reaction.

The Reactions:

Riley Matthews: I saw that this cutie pie got a lot of hate after this episode because she got upset and I’m just really confuse… I’m like… what did you except from her ? It’s Riley ! She got no chills ! She cares too much, she’s emotional, she’s super expressive. Her reaction was completely legit and coherent with who she is and her character. She discover that her first love hide everything about his past, this is a big deal for her. She’s not Maya, stop comparing Riley’s reaction with Maya’s, they don’t deal with stuff like that the same way and have different visions of things. Riley was being Riley. And frankly, I understand completely her reaction.

Maya Hart: I ADORE HER REACTION IT WAS PERFECT. She didn’t change the vision she got of him, he’s still Huckleberry for her and it’s so cool. She just like him even more. And also she make him smile and it was so great (and otp material !!!)

Farkle Minkus: I’m disappointed about it. Lucas is his best friend and we didn’t have any reaction from him. WHY ????

Lucas Friar: I still love you, actually, you’re even better. And your reaction about Riley’s one was completely legit too.

Other Characters:

Yogi: BIG SHOUT OUT TO YOGI HE TALKED.

Zay: I LOVE HIM SO MUCH

Ships:

Lucaya: They were perfect in this episode. Lucas calling himself “Ranger Rick”, Maya’s reaction about his past, Maya and her “oooohoooo” when Lucas got angry at this random boy,  Maya being the only one that make him smile… OTPOTPOTP.

Rucas: Well I enjoyed them less than usual but they’re still cute..

Markle/Riarkle: Almost got nothing. Farkle was really being put in the background and it’s disappointing.

Rilaya: Almost got nothing beside being next to each other and the “yyyyaaaayyy” of Maya while putting Riley’s hands in the air. Too bad.

Zay & Lucas: Kinda make me feel like a Rilaya friendship. Lucas being the one that put Zay out of trouble except that Lucas is violent by doing it unlike Riley.

Zay & Maya: I kinda ship it. But still Lucaya AF.

Zay & Riley : “You couldn’t be any cuter” AWWW.

Joshaya: I’m still waiting for their interaction hellooooo.
