O que realmente importa é o amor. ❤
Ao entrar no estado de amor sentimos gratidão por tudo e todos. (Mesmo quando a situação não tenha sido como você gostaria que fosse.)
Amor e gratidão por como as coisas são, do jeito que são.
Aceitar o que é, esvaindo-me do ego de como gostaria que tivesse sido.
A cada dia sou abençoada com uma lição.
Gratidão 😍🙏❤ #yoga#yogainspiration#yogini#life#bepresent#beyou#atençãoplena#mindfulness
The Masks we live in
I have been thinking about this lately as I have been very active with bringing awareness regarding social justice activism. I am loud, I curse, I sometimes don’t use the right words and I’m aware I am not saying things trying to find validation.
My masks were revealed a long time ago and I can’t go back to how I used to be. A lot of people get triggered with my words and assume I am angry or I hate People. I believe this has to do with the domestication we all have been part of.
If you notice we engage in this world wearing masks all the time, we have to use different masks with different people, and situations. I understand this is sometimes necessary, but if we look deep down we are able to recognize that these masks or identities we use will never encompass our Life Force or our Authentic Self.
When we are domesticated these masks hide who we are and we believe that who we are is “The Mask”.
Why do we hide? Why do we feel we can’t show who we really are?
We can see nowadays how many people suffer from Anxiety, depression, etc. We also hide behind the use of drugs or plant medicines to alleviate and numb those aspects of ourselves. How many people nowadays have trouble being out in the world, we hide, and at times it’s better to be alone than having to “deal with other people”
The reason of this is because in our True Nature we can’t longer continue living with these masks, but at the same time we don’t know how to step in our power and get rid of our masks.
This is part of the experience we will be having at my upcoming Retreat in Guatemala. We will create a transformational experience, while identifying our domestications.
YOU will step into Your Power so You no longer have to wear the masks that are killing our Spirits.
We are going through a major shift as a humanity and we need to become the Warriors of our own story so we can be of better service to Ourselves, Our Children and Our World.

Brunch @beauforthousechelsea is my favourite 😍 perfect day of playing with the ponies, @julie.montagu Mandala yoga @triyogauk , @juicebabyuk with the girls and time to myself writing up my yoga classes and plans... I normally just free flow with what goes 😂 I don’t stick to a set plan. I judge the class, as every class is different with different people in ☺️ Today decided to #journal a few new #yoga class ideas down.. keeping it fresh and new #yogainspiration ... good to have five mins chill time.... love a bit of #foodporn 😋 thanks #Beaufort boys 👍🏻👌🏻
“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes everyday. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control. - E. Gilbert 🖤
YAS...the conversations you have in your mind affect everything, address the self deprecating thoughts with positive chatter, means more than you probably realize. I’m not saying block the negative BS, try to talk yourself back to peace, reason the thoughts, and put them to rest. 🤟🏼 #myyogalife#mood#quitethechaos#bepatient#bekind#begentle#selflove#yogainspiration#goyogalove#power#yogalove#614yoga#columbusyoga
#yogiflyingfun Day 4: #pincha 🌟
This drill is so hard. I couldn't quite control my breathing. It is definitely something I need to work on 🌟
With amazing hosts @mirajfindingbalance @raymurse_yoga @mmaneevese @hana_bladh 🌟
As much as I love my @aloyoga leggings, I am on a no buying rule for a few months 🙊 So instead I’m doing my other favorite thing, getting cozy with a nice cup of tea and watching my all time favorite movie.
Sounds like a better deal ☺️
What are your Friday night plans? #cozyfriday#noblackfridayforme
Hi, Saturday morning yogis! Just a quick reminder we will be closed this Saturday morning as the Norwood Christmas pageant takes over town. 🎅 The good news is, you can still get your weekend dose of hot yoga with a class scheduled with Simon at 3.30pm Saturday afternoon. Our regular 4pm yin yoga class is also going ahead as normal so join us on the mat this weekend! Book now 👉 link in bio.
Mission completed.... system-calibration initiated.
For those curious on the experience, Read on... On Wednesday, I went through a spiritual intervention (surgery) and was directed to go straight to rest for 24 hours; no phone, no WiFi, no reading, no writing, no stimulation of any kind. Rest, rest, rest.
After 48 hours I could return to the casa and before the entities.
72 hours (tomorrow) I am able to treck to the holy waterfall (been looking forward to this since I arrived!) On the 7th night after my intervention ( this coming Tuesday) I will wear all white to bed and place a glass of water by my bedside, programmed with prayer and intention.
My protocol for the next 40 days will be no alcohol and no sexual stimulation followed by taking the herbs prescribed twice a day.

If you’ve ever felt the friction of feeling like you “should” do, be, think, feel something other than what you are, sometimes all it takes is permission to follow that gut instinct.
If you've been waiting for permission to listen to your heart, here it is. I'm just another person here on this planet with you, but if this is what's going to tip you over the edge to follow through or take that leap of faith to go forth in the direction of your dreams... then here it is. ✨
You are allowed to listen to your heart. You are allowed to make decisions based on what your heart is saying even if you might disappoint someone. You are allowed today no. You are allowed to say yes. You are allowed to shine bright, to go against the grain, you are allowed to be fully you in all your imperfect glory. Permission equals freedom. Freedom equals more ease, more ease equals less drama in life’s inevitable ups and downs.
Sound good? I'm happy give you permission to do the things that scare you, because that's where the magic is. You have the permission to take care of yourself first, you have permission to move your body however you like, you have permission to think differently, to love, to play…
What else? What do you want to give or need permission for? What have you experienced once you’ve given permission to yourself? Share in the comments and press the heart button (hearts to heart ❤️) to inspire us all as we move into the weekend, into Thanksgiving for my Americans friends, and deeper into our hearts. 😍

Forest bathing: a practice that originated in Japan and is called Shinrin yoko. 🌲It's being grounded and mindful in nature (already beneficial) while breathing compounds that trees naturally release, some of which are very distinctive such as the scent of cedar. 🌲These compounds, called phytoncides, reduced concentrations of stress horomones and enhanced the activity of white-blood cells, called natural killer cells. 🌲Another study found that inhaling cedar wood oil reduces blood pressure. While the studies are preliminary, it seems like there is something here in addition to the already extraordinary benefits of being in nature and breathing deeply. 🌲So make sure you carve out time to head out into your nearest forest and this time breathe a little deeper knowing that there are many more benefits we have yet to discover. 🌲
Having control and balance is just as important as pure strength. Knowing the physics of your body and how it all works together makes it much easier to achieve balance, it just takes practice and patience.
This week I received some questions (I know, I don't believe either) about the ebook that I'm promoting on my Bio. And I realized that I've never promoted it properly in a post because honestly, I hate promoting things. (At first I did it because it was fun to receive free things, but in the end, the ones that benefited were the brands).
Anyway, these are some questions I have received:
•"Is the book yours?" Yes, totally.
•"Is it a book of jokes or funny things?"~ LOL. Nope. It's 100% yoga postures.
•"Is it for all levels?" ~No. It's for those who want to start doing yoga or who have just started.
•"Is it the way you learned?" ~No. But it's the way I would have preferred to learn. My learning process was like any other classic yogi. Going to yoga classes, satanic rituals, diabolic mantras, flavorless smoothies, enlightened yoga masters, etc.
•"Do you talk about the philosophy of yoga?" ~No. The ebook is 100% focused on the physical part. Instructions for each position, benefits, precautions, and some advice.
•"Why is it not free?" - ~Do you work for free?
•"Do you have more ebooks?" ~This is the first of a few that I have in mind to publish.
•"How does this photo relate to your ebook?" ~Absolutely nothing. Life itself doesn't have sense.
•"Why do you always talk about food?" ~Because I'm Mexican.
•"Do you eat tortillas every hour?" ~No. Sometimes I have to sleep.
•"2- (3-3 (x + 1)) = 3x + 2 (x- (3 + 2x))?" x = -7
•"What is the meaning of life?" ~Tacos.
•Well, since it's #BlackFriday , I guess I have to do something. So, anyone who wants to get it: just click on the link in my Bio, and use the BDY30 coupon for a 30% discount until Monday.
Namaste and Pomodoro sauce. ✨🙏📿🍅.
Posting twice in one day because I'm a rebel. Also shoutout to my tongue for always being out for no reason?
In preperation for my Instagram live class at 9:30am EST tomorrow (Saturday the 24th) I'm going to let you know why building a strong core is so important! I'll start by explaining that having a strong core does not mean having 6-pack abs (because I have a strong core and as you can see, no abs). Your core includes all of the muscles surrounding your midsection. The benefits to strengthening these muscles are endless; improved balance, reduced lower back pain, better posture, improved digestion, deeper breathing, a crazy self-confidence boost, and so much more! Feeling strong is more fun than feeling skinny!
I can't wait to teach you amazing humans!
