This Yoga workout to firefly (Titibasana) and other arm balances is an intermediate to advanced class. Thank you to Nanosplanet and The Light Wizard (look for them on Instagram) for requesting Titibasana (firefly) and Mayerasana (peacock). Mitchell Smith also requested "crazy transitions." I did a couple that I think are on the crazy side…although I'd need to practice more to put in additional ones. 🙂 As always, please pay attention to how your body feels as you move through this practice. Rest whenever you would like to. Push the pause button to rest or to try poses several times. Remember…this is your practice! Make it fun for you. The quote is about staying in the moment:
"Time isn't precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time–past and future–the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is." Eckhart Tolle from The Power of Now: A guide to Spiritual Enlightenment. The Power of Now is an excellent book that I highly recommend. Remember that any fear we experience is usually in the future and any anger or resentment we feel is usually from something that happened in the past (even if it's very recent past). When we can stay in the present moment, or the Now, we experience peace. Yoga helps us to stay in the Now.

WELCOME to Fightmaster Yoga, I'm Lesley Fightmaster (yes…that's really my last name). Before yoga, my head would never shut up! I felt anxious and uncomfortable. I stressed about the future and regretted the past. I was wound so tightly, took myself way too seriously and carried the weight of the world on my shoulders. I hardly ever laughed. Morning yoga taught me to breathe, to connect and to find space. My intention for this fitness channel is to help you quiet your mind and get comfortable in your own skin. Let go of the past and the future and get present on your mat. If you're having a rough day, find some relief here. If you're beating yourself up, roll out your mat, push play and know that everything's going to be alright. We can all take ourselves a little too seriously. My free yoga videos will help you to laugh more and stress less. The Fightmaster Yoga community will love you SO MUCH that you won't have any choice but to love yourself. Subscribe now and join the fun!
