A bliss-filled, impromptu afternoon of photography and Yoga

"Make each moment an occasion to live deeply, happily, in peace."  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

Audrey is a creative, mature, purposeful five-year-old - I am her Yoga-loving Mama.  On a recent Friday afternoon, we made a perfect pair - I was happily moving through my daily Yoga practice and Audrey was shooting photos of me in various poses.  Audie loves to take photos of anything and everything, so that Friday afternoon together was a perfect pairing of passions - Audrey with photography and her Mama with Yoga.  And the best part?  It was an unplanned rendez-vous and a wonderful mother-daughter bonding time.

To be honest, when Audrey burst into my Yoga practice, I was more than a little agitated.  But I took a breath and embraced the moment (and Audrey) and rolled with it.  Just another reminder - if we let life unfold, radiance will shine through when we least suspect it. 
Where do you find your joy?  Is it in planned, articulated activities, or do you find pleasure by going with the flow and making each moment count as the gift that it truly is?  When we drop our expectations and release ourselves from attachment to the way we think things SHOULD be, life blossoms around us and we're able to live deeply, happily and in peace.
Check out a few random photos below from our spur of the moment Yoga photography shoot.

 Upside Down and Inside Out.  Explore your life in any given moment Upside Down and from the Inside Out.  Namaste'.

  1. A 5 year old took those? Impressive! That's really awesome. I must say I have to admit, when I see you do yoga, I am amazed. You are so in tune with your Asana practice. And also when you speak...It's really amazing. <3
