It's time to explore this city. First stop #LamaTemple ???? Got blessed by a buddhist monk and meditated in front of the world's tallest statue of Buddha.

To travel to India is to enter the spiritual heart of yoga. Immerse yourself as a student, with reverence and humility for the sacred gift of the yoga tradition. To live the yoga life, to be a true spiritual aspirant is to yearn for a deep and lasting connection to the eternal light. Only through complete surrender, only with total devotion will you enter the innermost chambers of the world within. Traveling to India to study with my teachers Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois gave me the foundation for an unwavering commitment to the practice. ???? . And I am so honored to share my journey with you! Thank you for building this platform to 1 million yogis ???? You made my dream come true and now you can help a young yogi's dream to go on their own personal journey to India come true. Click the link in bio or go to @yogisheart website to donate or apply to second annual #JourneytoIndia scholarship. Yesterday we raised $500 and received 70 applications. I will personally be matching all funds donated this weekend. Any amount, no matter how small or big, is appreciated. ???? .

| Picture Perfect . I will never forget the color of the water, or how perfectly clear it was. How I felt like my body would be painted teal with each stroke. . We hiked along until we found the most perfect, private spot where we skinny dipped skin to skin with the most beautiful display of Mother Nature's work I have ever seen or felt. We napped in the sun until our parts, and hearts, were painted perfectly brown, smiled and talked about big life things and the way of the Universe. I didn't want it to end. . Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I'm so grateful for this beautiful life, and all of the magic along the way. . ????L'escalet, France | ????: Mon Ami | #travelwithpb #yogawithpb #ignitepositivechange @yogatrade .

8. Briohny and Dice Smyth (aka Bryce Yoga)
Svadhyaya - self study, self-inquiry, self discovery... Although this fourth Niyama is a solitary thing, it's been the biggest blessing to be encouraged by wifey to enjoy the process of finding out who I am. So much gratitude for this amazingly strong woman in my life. Love you my Queen ????❤️???? #PracticeOn and #InspireOn my fellow yogis and lovers ????
