The Lawn Mower Yogi video by tahl rinsky

I've had  allot of comments about the a video I posted on Instagram a while back of Jasper my son mowing the law's while I practice yoga. To be honest I've watched this video over and over myself cracking up each time. I cannot think of a better way to represent the ife of a busy mom who is desperately trying to find some time for things she loves to do or in my case the things that keep her sane. Searching for a moment of peace in the never ending noise that is parenting. 

I woke up that Sunday morning and thought I'll take my mat out to the deck and do a quick practice before the kids are running around; of course within 5 minutes they decided that the best thing to do would be mow the lawns something they learned from their nana - a hard working, lawn mowing unstoppable women. Of course I didn't want to crush their little hearts after they discovered another new and exciting thing they are good at. I decided to enjoy the absurdity of trying to withdraw my senses through the practice of Pratyahara while listening to a lawn mower 2M away from my mat. I must say the practice wasn't as rewarding as I'de hoped but jeez the video came out awesome.

Here is the full length version for you to enjoy.

Light reflections. by tahl rinsky

There is something so magical about witnessing someone's reflection in a lake or pool of water. There is also something magical when we see a still image completely back lit by the sun so the subject appears completely black. These qualities are often only witnessed when looking at a frozen moment in time taking the form of a photograph. To me these photos represent the deeper layers of our being. A glimpse into our true nature that is shadowed by the activity of the mind. When I look at these images I often find I can diffuse a negative pattern of thinking I might have developed that day, surrendering to the awe and beauty of this beautiful world.
