If you’ve been following me for a little while you’ll know that I’m all about dreaming BIG and inspiring others to do the same. But lately I’ve also been on a real journey of discovering what my next steps will be and I’ve really had to remind myself that it’s not entirely about reaching your goals and being better and better. Like anything there’s a balance. As you’re reaching for your goals, take time to look around and find deep sincere gratitude for everything you’ve already got. Be proud of everything you’ve already achieved .
Thank you @villa_de_zoysa for a rejuvenating week! Photo by @lindabalzfotografie and I’m wearing @aloyoga .
Tomorrow is Day 12 and the pose is any Inversion of your choice 🙃
I woke up a with a little cold this morning, probably from taking this photo while freezing my 🍑 off. How do you guys do this where it actually winters?! _

Today is Day 2 of 5 of my 10k #giveaway . Today's giveaway is @jessicaolie 's ebook @letsstartyoga 1.0 . (She has 3 ebooks; the giveaway is for *1.0*)
I'm sure you can tell from my page that Jess is a favorite. But beyond that, she encourages her friends to learn more, think more, and expand out of their horizons. She's a true teacher, but also never takes herself too seriously. I mean, she walks down the street singing "do you want to build a snowman" while playing the version with lyrics from youtube 😂😂😂⛄
The rules are the same as all giveaways; please follow me and all the sponsors. I will post an item daily through Friday and announce the winners in my story on Saturday morning. Your comment is your entry, and you can comment on every photo once per day for 5 chances to win. The sponsors: @yogahustle @letsstartyoga @bloominglotusjewelry @flexilexi_fitness @satyayogawear
Now tag someone below that motivates you to continually learn or do better!
Rainy weather in Paris hasn't stopped us from walking around outdoors and making our way from one end of this beautiful city to the other... but it did call for some extra pit-stops along the way, at all the cute cafes & yummy bakeries that line the charming streets here. While it may be the most delicious way to experience this city, I'm pretty sure that if the weather doesn't clear up, I may just turn into one large chocolate croissant by the end of this trip... 🥐☕️🥖
True divine love is within
Gently breaking open
To let the light in
Our love is so deep
Loving the darkness that is me
Loving all of us
Love on beloved lovers
i have been trying to find the courage to post a video for a while (gotten so many requests from you dope souls), but every time i went to film there was always something “wrong”. lighting was too dark, flow wasn’t “perfect”, it didn’t look like someone else’s amazing video, blah fucking blah.
i took like 8 videos over the weekend trying to figure out what to post, what to wear, if it was “good enough”. and yeah, that sort of defeats the entire purpose of yoga.
so here’s my “fuck it, i’m just gonna do me” simple, unedited video from this morning’s sunshine.
not my “best” or smoothest press, but considering that i couldn’t even do this last year, it’s unbelievable!
bottom line, we all judge and compare ourselves to others... and it’s the root of a lot of unhappiness.
give 👏 yo 👏 self 👏 credit.
i didn’t even know i could do this zombie press until a few days ago when i saw @jessicaolie do it.
before my ego could chime in, my instant reaction was “i can do that!” so i tried... and i did.
do you see what i’m saying? you can, until you convince yourself you can’t.
don’t let your mind get in the way of your self. this is my daily struggle. and if it helps literally one other person to share it, i will gladly bare my soul.
now, take a deep breath and hear me when i say: you are exactly where you need to be.

In life we do things, some we wish we had never done, some we wish we could replay a million times in our heads, but they all make us who we are and in the end they shape every detail about us. If we were to reverse any of them we wouldn't be the person we are. So just live, make mistakes, have wonderful memories but never ever second guess who you are, where you have been and most importantly where it is you're going 💜🕉

I am missing my physical practice at the moment. I have not been blessed with health since arriving in Colombia, my body feels tired and my energy levels are fairly low. Every day I step on my mat for a moment. Sometimes just to sit down and breath, yesterday to make a mala, today to see if my arms could still carry my weight (you know that feeling, when you think you lost all your strength in ten days 😏😝) They can, but I can feel that I need more time to heal. This picture was taken in Thailand when I played around with a variation of eka pada bakasana - a pose I taught in my last week of teaching in Sydney. Yoga has taught me patience, but don’t get me wrong... sometimes it is freaking hard to stay patient... 😩🙊 #yoga#bakasana#ekapadabakasana#asana#vinyasa#inversion#inversionsmakemehappy
This practice is perpetual calibration and recalibration. Having the awareness to look at the way our external world changes our internal world and knowing what is necessary to find equilibrium again. When our environment grows cold, our instinct is to go into hibernation mode. We shut down the front body, protect our hearts, take shallow breaths and are usually confronted by our unresolved grief and heartbreak. You find balance again by choosing to stay open. By creating your own heat, drawing your shoulders back, holding your heart high. Forgive yourself, forgive EVERYONE. You find balance again by noticing the reactions you impulsively gravitate towards and then doing the opposite. Keep choosing to stay open, then choose again and again and again.
P.S. It's going to be another super backbendy class this evening @loveyogaspace DM for a guest pass 💫 📸: @kelley_bode
To sum up why Aerial Yoga is so amazing:
- Brings lots of blood to your head again and again - This improves blood pressure and cholesterol, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, and brings a rosy glow to your skin.
- Improves your balance and sense of space, keeping your nervous system flexible and young (and reducing sea-sickness).
- Makes you play, smile, laugh and releases "happy hormones".
- Improves your concentration - Aerial yoga forces you to be completely present and aware in your body. You will not be thinking about your to-do list when you are hanging 1 m. above the ground.
- Strenghtens your Deep Core muscles - Aerial yoga gets you out of your yoga comfort zone and forces you to engage your deep core muscles in order to balance and stabilize the hammock.
- Brings back pain relief - Hanging upside down from the hip depressurizes the spine and evens out any imbalances over time.
- ADDED BONUS: Effectively smooths out cellulite and detoxifies the tissue by massaging the thighs deeply. Come try it at Blå himmel yoga on our open-level classes or workshops. #aerialyoga#blaahimmelyoga#inversionjunkie#inversion#yogaoutside#yogainnature#aerialhammock#aerialsling#urdhvabadhakonasana
& breath in
all the things
that make you
One of the things I'm
most grateful for is these
two beautiful & powerful
women in my life 👯❤️
At the end of a challenging @trxtraining class and you offer their inversion of choice... 😜
This is from yesterday but I was impressed with myself so 🤷♀️ No wall used and I stacked and balanced and...yeah, I felt great. My husband was home while I was taking pictures and he kept talking to me while I was in the middle of this. I didn’t answer so he came in and goes, “oh, you’re upside down.” Of course that made me laugh and then I almost lost my shirt 😂 Quick flow this morning because Dax is so fussy. He’s been mad about the small bottles yesterday (fed him literally every hour 🙄) and while he’s back to regular bottles this morning, he can’t have any solids unless he makes it through the day today. Fingers crossed 🤞 It’s also my husband’s birthday and I have a ton of stuff to get done so I’m outta here, have a great Tuesday! 😘

"Many people look up to me and realize my worth; I am admired." I remember when I first started going to yoga classes. I thought everyone was better than me and would be watching everything I did and judging me for how I did it, whether it was wrong or "too good for a beginner" (a totally weird thing to be self conscuous about, I know ). That was 100% my ego talking. Now that I know people look up to me, I can tell any beginners, I am never looking at you or judging you in a class. Most of the time, I'm just focused on myself or nothing at all. I'll let you in on another secret: I STILL HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M DOING! So, just have fun with it.
Day 11 of #anatomyofselflove is side lunge or #skandasana . We were asked to put it into a flow, and this is what I felt like doing 🤓 (video sped up 2x)
