Growth takes time. It isn’t a linear path. It takes bravery, strength and trust to step into your truth. It requires shedding identities that no longer serve you. And some days it will seem as though nothing has changed. Until you look back and everything is different. 🌊

I know you're thinking I'm heartless
I know you're thinking I'm cold
I'm just protecting my innocence
I'm just protecting my soul
But every time you hurt me, the less that I cry,
And every time you leave me, the quicker these tears dry,
And every time you walk out, the less I love you,
Baby, we don't stand a chance, it's sad but it's true...
Un texto escrito desde el corazón es una forma abierta y honesta de expresarse aunque siempre estará procesada por la mente.
En cambio el movimiento; el movimiento es puro lenguaje de la emoción. (E) Moción. Movimiento. Desplazamiento. Vida.
Cuando el cuerpo se mueve no interviene ningún pensamiento, no existe condición.
Cuando el cuerpo se mueve no es necesario conocer para entender. No es necesario comprender para sentir.
Cuando el cuerpo se mueve es la expresión del alma, su lenguaje más puro.

With everything that you do, care and love improve it that much more.
We often overestimate how far a little TLC can go!
When you work with passion, its no longer work. 💞 .
"I have just returned from a wonderful week of bliss. I went with the intention of learning to surf and found wonderful people, food, yoga and a world of new experiences. From arrival I was made to feel welcome and comfortable.
The activities were well planned and suited to all levels, there was plenty of action and enough free time for extra pampering sessions, shopping and cocktails on the beach. I came away feeling relaxed, happy and refreshed.
They are doing something very, very right!" - Claire B via Trip Advisor
The most exquisite paradox… as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all. As long as you want power, you can't have it. The minute you don't want power, you'll have more than you ever dreamed possible.
- Ram Dass

Had 5 minutes to burn before heading out to a holiday party and figured I’d just pop into a pose. Hence the jeans and boots 😏 Anyone else out there just hop into a pose whenever/wherever? Yoga addicts unite 🤩! I’ll be announcing a winner for the awesome okiino pants (previous post) tonight!
These faces speak a thousand words.

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as looks. She was beautiful deep down to her soul.” ~F. Scott Fitzgerald
I'm missing this and instead doing daily PT exercises. The doctor told me to chilllllll on returning to yoga (like how can I get any more chill 😂) and be patient as I'm still in the "acute" phase. She compared my disc to a jelly donut with the jelly squeezed out 🍩👀 I will still get there, it's just a longer road than I thought. She also called me dude so I appreciate her bedside manner and trust her opinion 😜#throwback#costarica#yogaretreat
I think this is my favorite spot of our retreat. Currently relaxing & reading "Happiness" by Thich Nhat Hanh ☺️🙏🏼
You cracked me open.
And now, you constantly break me.
I wish I knew how to quit you

Today was such a dragonfly day... had to work extra hard to be a master of light. The illusions were everywhere! •
All I wanted to do was make art and write. I needed it. And yet, no one at my house thought that was very important. So their needs came first. Again. As usual. And then the day was done. Sorry mama! •
I’ve been getting all sorts of resent-y, which puts a major road block on creative flow. •
The best I could do was locking myself in the bathroom for a long dry brushing session and hot shower, followed by warm oil massage, chanting mantra at top volume, all the while. (It did help) •
And as for the rest of it? I guess I’ll try again Moonday. •
What are you doing to take care of you?? This time of year is hectic, when we don't have a lot of time to spare, we have to make time to take care of ourselves. Schedule a workout, create time at night for a bath, treat yourself to a solo coffee break...whatever it is, just make the time for YOU!
If you are looking to incorporate a little more self care into 2018...consider joining me for one of these
re t r e a t s! 🔹Jan. 29- Feb. 7: Australia! 🔹March 17-25: New Zealand w/ @arrow_liveforward 🔹August 5-13: Uganda!

Good morning fellows!
Очень необычное чувство - жить возле достопримечательности. Еще более необычное - практиковать йогу возле нее😊 я говорю о нашем водопаде Кату. Ранним утром, до 9, на нем нет ни души, только птицы, бабочки, крабы, шум воды и ласковые лучи восходящего солнца. Уютно расположившись на мостике - его ширина как раз под йога-мат - двое человек ( ученик и его персональный тренер, например😉) могут отлично заниматься. И никакой музыки, аромапалок и поющих чаш не надо - природа дарит лучшую арома- и звукотерапию. И в шавасане не надо представлять, что ты лежишь в волшебном райском месте - ведь ты действительно там лежишь!😆 Хотите так же? Прилетайте к нам в ретрит-дом на йога-каникулы или просто записывайтесь ко мне на индивидуальные уроки, обещаю вам незабываемые впечатления!
