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

The positive ego is the one that turns the off-balance feeling of a correction into a hunger to make it the new reference point for progress. You're not expected to find the whole way by yourself. The negative ego is the one that says it's more important to look like you already know, that retracts at a reflection. Listen, you're not gonna lose your ego in this lifetime. The ego is the embodiment of the supreme, so use it towards uplifting ends. Almost nothing is more hollow and pedantic than a yoga teacher preaching at you to lose your ego. Use that shit for good. Words, Benjamin Sears.

A hour silent early morning hike way above the riviera, a long practice and some deep internal work that I won't ruin by describing it here, capped off with nourishment of the more traditional variety. A little birdie snuck this photo. It's just really cool to be around people who make you feel like you're doing something worth doing. Find those people, the ones who help you dream. Words - Benjamin Sears.

Help people feel. Hand over the keys. I teach for sense memory. For my students: to encourage the self-sufficiency that comes from knowing one's own neurology — simply how it feels to be in the center of the pose, where the edges are, and how the middle connects to the circumference. For me: the reminder, the kind reflection of those who let me lead that I'm worthy to do so. My god, the leap of faith they take. Words by Lux Founder & Owner, Benjamin Sears.
