You really will feel like part of the family on our retreats. Guests having some downtime and getting cosy in the Villa.
Everything is progress but the amount of progress you will see in your practice after just one week as a student at LUX under the guidance of @benjamin.sears is incredible

How did you take your morning coffee today?
We know a good artichoke when we see one.
Hatha yoga is meditation via the vehicle of the physical body. You have to pay attention for this shit to work. The poses are tools. You are the artisan and the artwork. #regram @benjamin.sears
Morning coffee with the sunrise. Matching top, optional.
We like options when it come to our tomatoes.
Got too much shit going on? Smooth things out at LUX. Raw, organic local butter optional.
It's an Apéritif night every night here at LUX. Should you choose of course.
All our ingredients are locally sourced, the menu planned seasonally and all dietry requirements are catered to.
Attention reveals the sweetness of simplicity. All tomatoes are not the same, and olive oil and salt are more than enough.
In this #forrestyoga eagle warrior, the extended eagle arms lengthen the muscles of the back up from the attachments at the top of the pelvis and become a support for the head, down-regulating the nervous system with a back release and challenging balance. The movement of the arms is counter-balanced by the ribs going back while the pubis goes forward. All this relies upon the legs, which support it all. Did you think simple poses were boring? Go deep inside the pose and fill it with your sweet attention until it gives itself to you. #regram @benjamin.sears

Archival footage. I have about one lotus in me per year. Doesn't mean I don't keep working on the imbalances that make it a potentially damaging move, but the key to sustainable practices is to work on your body instead of your poses. Think of a successful practice as one that hits certain spots whether or not you get to your deepest variation, this way you can work hard in the right way, keep progressing and experience less disappointment. I don't know what "take it easy" means, but play it smart means use the poses rather than chase them and body and mind will thank you — unless you have a photo shoot, then just take some painkillers and go for it!
