"The autonomic nervous system is divided into
the sympathetic system, which is often identified with
the fight-or-flight response,
and the parasympathetic, which is identified with
what’s been called the relaxation response.
When you do yoga,
the deep breathing, the stretching,
the movements that release muscle tension,
the relaxed focus on being present in your body,
you initiate a process that turns the fight-or-flight system off
and the relaxation response on.
That has a dramatic effect on the body.
The heartbeat slows, respiration decreases, blood pressure decreases.
The body seizes this chance to turn on the healing mechanisms”

Our first time trying partner yoga, yew! This is Nari 👋 (say “Hi Nari!”)!
I met Nari this morning, i was doing some yoga/handstands and he came running up to me asking if I could teach him how.. So I did :) just this morning he couldn’t handstand, and by midday we were proper partner yogi bears! I’d never tried partner yoga either, so as hot and sweaty as it was in this blistering Miami sun - it was also a lot of fun!! 😊☀️🌴 I get asked a lot how I end up doing all these spontaneous things with randoms and strangers.. And the answer is honestly no secret; it’s just about being open to try new things, putting yourself out of your comfort zone, forgetting your ego, and having no shame or embarrasment.. Ask people questions, be curious as to what others do and who they are, have a light soul and a soft heart, smile,  be kind, be kind, be kind! People are actually SO much lovelier than you give them credit for initially.. Yes, being cautious and rational about some souls potentially being ill intended is healthy and extremely necessary at times. And doing things to prevent anything bad occuring is essential (ie being in populated places, telling people where you are and what you’re doing, always knowing the local emergency number etc) but I tend to listen to my gut.. If something feels off or icky, it probably is. If it feels good and friendly, then why not make a new friend and learn something new while you’re at it? 
If you’re wanting more incredible, unplanned and spontaneous things to happen to you then my best advice is to be 1. Out there. Nothing amazing will happen if you stay at home hiding from the world. 2. Be alone sometimes.. Being surrounded by friends is good! But it’s just as healthy to spend time alone and to not have to rely on others for entertainment or energy.. You’ll find this enables more possibilities to find YOU too!  3. Shake off your comfort blanket. Yep, as warm and soft as it is. Chuck it away! 4. Smile. Be friendly and kind. It’s REALLY not that hard people!!! And last but not least - 5. Be open to these opportunities!!!! Be a “yes” person! 💛💛 I dare you to try these things and just see what happens.. I DOUBLE dare you! (at W Hotel South Beach)
