”I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love.” ~ Gandhi
Graduation day! My month with these ladies is something so irreplaceable. Through our good days and bad days we were always a tribe. We share a love and passion words will never explain. While we live in all parts of the world, our bond will remain forever ❤️
One of the things I love most about yoga is that you have it with you always and you can practice almost anywhere. The park, your living room or the 36th floor balcony of your hotel. No matter what's going on around you, yoga is available to reconnect with yourself, turn inwards and calm your mind. 💜💜💜💜 #seriouslyobsessed
When you part from your friend, you grieve not; for that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
Clarity through space. Love always.
To all my friends and family around the world who may be in some harsh storms and quakes outward or inward- Caribbean, Mexico... at work or at home.
I'm thinking of you.
I love you!

"i have no idea what i'm doing" - thinks everyone, all the time, throughout the history of time. 🙃
trying hard to stay focused on my own growth and not allow myself to be distracted by others. it's harder than it seems! 🌀
what i'm realizing is it's okay to want more, the trick is not needing more. it's okay to own things, as long as nothing owns me. 🙅🏻
i may not be able to master the rest of my life in one day, so i'm doing my best to relax and just master today. 💜

that we have forgotten
the simplistic joy
of just the feeling of your soil
beneath our feet.
That when we lay our head down
upon your floor
and listen really carefully,
we can hear your
What a treat to take a beautiful Vinyasa flow class @theyogabarn. A place I've always wanted to practice at! Really enjoyed my whole stay in Ubud. Such a chill and gorgeous place in the jungles of Bali. Amazing delicious meals that were so fresh. All the views your heart could take, from rice paddies, to flowing rivers, to mountain ranges, to volcanos, to jungles, to many gardens and fields of greenery. I will be back soon Ubud ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you for making me feel right at home!
"The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever." - Nicholas Sparks ⚡️ -
Thank you Angga for making me feel like the most beautiful mermaid in the tide pool 😊 #yogawithkhat 👁: @delta_visual
We found another way to take care of the environment!
With these recycled plastic take away cups.
Traveler friendly no need to buy just rent from us for a small fee, keep it with you for the duration of your stay in lombok then before you leave return it and get your money back 😰
Great for that morning green juice after yoga or fresh hot coffee.
This photo originally had a very long caption which I deleted because I honestly felt like I was just using this space as my journal 🙄 (which, by the way, if you don't keep a journal you should... it's like free therapy and you can put whatever you want in it whether you draw pictures or unleash your feelings or write your goals. Plus it's really cool going back and reading and seeing how far you've come) 🤷🏽♀️✨🦋
Happy fall equinox, here's a picture I took of some super fluffy clouds at 5 AM 😊☁️✨ #theresnofallhere#butillpretendanyway#costarica
g r o u n d 🌱 touch the earth and cling to it. Dig into the sand, play with the grass, walk barefoot in the soil. Notice the fresh smell in the air after it rains. Get charged up. Whole. Nurtured. Healed... re-connected to the source and disconnected from distractions.
KING PIGEON POSE. To achieve this, you can start out in mermaid pose to grip the back ankle with the same-side hand. If this is unattainable, a strap is always helpful to wrap around the ankle. This pose is great for stimulating your abdominal organs and stretching your chest. Also, I am OBSESSED with this little graffitied nook.
I am learning to live between effort and surrender. I do my best and hope for what I want, but I do not resist the direction of the wind.
Through surrender, I move from outer turmoil to inner peace. By letting go of expectations and outcomes, I transform a painful experience into a positive, fruitful endeavor.
When fear gets the best of me, I surrender to love. When I release my resistance to love's presence, I am able to receive what I need- what's trying to come into my life, for my highest good. .
Playing with shapes under a beautiful blue French sky…
I love how fast I bond with other travelers. No bulls#!t conversations - just real talk about EVERYTHING under the sun…and I’m discovering that there are a lot of people out there who are part of my tribe…we just didn’t know it until we opened our hearts and listened to one another’s stories…
I have two fav things about this picture…
1. - I’m doing handstands again on a healed shoulder…Not completely unsupported yet but feeling healthy and strong…so much gratitude!
2. - If you look closely, we look like a bow and arrow…(@jordanleeyoga ’s knee and my knee form the arrow and our bodies form the bow) I’m aiming for a long happy and healthy life spreading joy, receiving and encouraging inspiration, and traveling within my global community!
What you don’t see (unless you happened to catch my InstaStory the other day) is that I had been walking, dancing, and singing with @jordanleeyoga and @beth_moores (who snapped this pic) just a few minutes before our impromptu photoshoot and we ladies have been bonding with @donnarae79 … we are all at these wonderful points in our life where we can truly share and learn from one another…
What more could you ask for in a friend?
Unless it’s throwing in a few moments of acro play…
See you on the mat…with smiles…
PS - Pic is dedicated to @megankachigan who played with this pose back when my shoulder didn’t allow me to be the inverted one…can’t wait to do this one in reverse with you too! Shoutout to my OC acrofamily with a special hug to @lem.e.climb.n.acro who spent so much time working with me on body awareness while my shoulder was healing. I am able to safely play because you encouraged me to learn patience!
PPS - Where are my European Acro yogis at? Stay tuned for my travel plans…Any bases want to play with this flyer?
Tonight at 7:30pm I will be hosting a charity event for the people suffering from the recent hurricanes. The event will take place at Saanauk forest preserve and will include vegetarian snacks and hot tea, a 20 minute gentle yoga flow and a 20 minute guided meditation. Let's come together as a community to help our brothers and sisters in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico. We will vibe high in the key of love send all of our healing energy that way as well as raising money for those who have lost everything. If you have any questions please feel free to DM me. I hope to see you there! 💕✨✌🏻🕉🙏🏼
How cool is this? I had a student today from Dubai (who's been living in Colorado for 8 years, in my class today at @kindnessyoga in Golden.
Sarah came to my class at Zen Yoga in Dubai years ago, and so we meet again 🙏🏼
I don't like selfies...and this pic is amazing of Sarah @sa_outside...Me? Not so much 😂
Life is so cool...and so small.
I miss my Emirati friends 💕 @kalzorro @lalhashimy sending you lots of love.
Big love to Dubai 💕💕💕

My heart aches for this magical island. Puerto Rico has been devastated by hurricane Maria and there's been little to no communication with anyone from the west side of the island, the place that I most recently called home this past winter.
The entire island is INDEFINITELY without power, cell towers are down, and the damage is going to take months and months to rebuild. There is a long road ahead and although we don't know the extent of the damage quite yet, there ARE ways to help. .
One of the special souls I met in PR, @sunburntandsalty has put together a list of ways YOU can help. The link is in my bio, please please please consider donating and continue to send love & healing energy to this island that provided me with so much of both. La isla del encanto, you are in my heart. ❤️🇵🇷🙏🏽
Day 21 of the #yogagirlchallenge with @yoga_girl was spent in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia. On our final day the sun came out to play and we absolutely fell in love with this charming town. So many colourful houses, all very well preserved, cute shops, quiet streets not overrun by tourists. We stopped into St. John's Anglican Church, a beautiful gothic style church at the top of the hill. It burned down almost entirely in 2001 and took $6.1 million to rebuild. When you see it today, it's hard to believe it was once in a state of ruin. Donations flooded in from all over the world to rebuild it. When people come together beautiful things can happen, and St. John's is a reminder of that.
Do you ever have those times where you don't do a pose for what feels like months and then a time comes when you can't get enough of it?? Lately I've been all about anahatasana. All the yum. Everyday.... As a teacher it's easy to see when the collective group needs something, but it's been SO long since I've been to studio classes...I'm curious...what are you feeling these days??💓 #yogaeverywhere
