I've been living my yoga off the mat lately. Not posting as much but spending more time with these beautiful ladies. These are my daughters, I'm in the center. My son couldn't join us on this family vacation but hopefully next time he'll be there. I feel so blessed and fortunate to have these moments and so full of joy. These are the memories that I love creating.
Sean Corn said "take what you learn on the mat and take it off the mat and into the world". I'm living my yoga everyday, every minute, creating memories and embracing life because life is precious and a gift.
I can't dance! I hate to dance...never had enjoyed it, I feel like an awkward fool! Flowing in Vinyasa has become my dance, the first time I felt comfortable moving freely without thinking. I just move where the breathe takes me and I imagine for someone with rhythm that this must be similar to what it must feel like to dance.
Sped up x2
I want to spend less time worrying about
belly rolls and
and more time being
loving towards myself and others 💞
This is how I live my yoga. @yogacaraglobal
So yah. One of the really nice benefits of pregnancy + postpartum hormonal changes for me was that my skin was always pimple free. And so with my cycle coming back, my hormones are balancing out and my face has been breaking out in little pimples. #OhJoy
I've been finding that making sure I keep my water intake up is helping, as well as using the Sensé Beautiful Science Nourishing Masque, filled with clay to really clean out my pores followed up with the Serum Intensive, which has a skin re-texturizing hydroxy complex to help boost my skins natural renewal cycle.
When I was a younger girl I never understood why women cared so much about skincare regimes, but now I totally get it. Clean, soft skin is one of those little things that lifts my spirits and keeps me feeling fresh. ✨🌱💗 What does your skincare routine look like?
I'm working on doing some spring cleaning at my house and as I go through some of the old crap that I still have, I'm finding that each item that I've been hoarding all this time takes up space that I could be using for something else (duh). But what's not so obvious is that the same is true with our thoughts, beliefs, and relationships. Spring cleaning doesn't always have to include housework, organizing closets, and scrubbing the baseboards. It's also important to spring clean our minds, to get rid of our old selves to make room for the exciting new things life has to offer. It can be difficult to do this, but it's absolutely necessary to do some self evaluation. "Oftentimes when we believe that we've been holding on to something we need, we find that the reverse is actually true. The real loss is the emptiness, the soul sickness, that we feel around any form of fear disguised as greed or hoarding." #SHAPEANDREFLECT
"i am in love with Ocean
lifting her thousands of white hats
in the chop of the storm,
or lying smooth and blue, the
loveliest bed in the world.
in the personal life, there is
always grief more than enough,
a heart-load for each of us
on the dusty road. i suppose
there is a reason for this, so i will be
patient, acquiescent. but i will live
nowhere except here, by Ocean, trusting
equally in all last and welcome
of her sorrowless, salt self."

too important a message to not share on this auspicious world water day, thank you @JohnSmrtic for your wonderful weaving of this potent message. 💦 💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦
"did you know animal agriculture, including dairy, is the number 1 cause of water pollution? steady standing for all life and all waters 1 meal at a time. veganism is the most significant spiritual practice in my life as it has transformed my heart and consciousness and not only does the least harm to the Earth, water, atmosphere and beings, but has the potential to also liberate countless beings and break the grip of a dying paradigm of exploitation, domination and forgetfulness of the Divinity of all life. //
PRAYING FOR ALL WATERS
Today is World Water Day, we visualize all the living waters on this precious Mother Earth in their original crystalline purity and vibrancy, thriving and free of pollution. Beyond even the original blueprint, we visualize and realize a new heavenly dimensional radiance and abundance in the waters. The fish people and all aquatic life shall be restored to their original sovereignty as a brilliant, conscious, unique aspect of divine creation, free of human imposition. We pray for, visualize and call forth a New Earth where all waters are viewed as holy and sacred, as well as all life and species, and Gaia herself, where unity, peace, love and I AM sovereignty are the dimensional realities.
SO IT IS." -John Smirtic

When you are on a business trip and there is no studio in town, you invite your client over to the guesthouse and teach morning yoga before your morning meetings. Thanks @cariamay for joining me this morning. #yogaeverydamnday#namasteeveryday#liveyouryoga
"The stream of thinking has enormous momentum that can easily drag you along with it. Every thought pretends that it matters so much. It wants to draw your attention in completely. Here is a new spiritual practice for you; don't take your thoughts to seriously." - Elkhart Tolle

Sometimes what we really need is to stop trying so hard to receive what we are seeking...to pause and open rather than continue pushing through. ✨

Happy #nationalpuppyday !! Celebrating with Day 1 of #PetsAndPoses featuring the cutest puppy in the world, Bella! Ok maybe I'm just a little biased 😉 @jbreton22 @livinleggings @salty_hair_yogi @yogi_goddess @aloyoga @infinitystrap @yogapaws
i haven't been in the best of spirits lately. the ebb and flow of life. ups and downs.
i can choose (like i used to) to focus my energy on the perceived negatives in and around my life that i have little control over and let them consume me OR i can keep the focus on me and the things i can control, like moving and nourishing my body, and keep moving forward despite anything that may be trying to drag me down.
i didn't get my workout in until 10:30pm last night. i chose to take a yoga class before, but i still had to get it done because i started a program and am committed to finishing it. yes, it was late and yes i was tired, but i'm committed to me and i'm committed to the folks who are on this journey with me. i'm committed to rising above the bullshit and working to be better than i was yesterday. and i'm committed to making my reality one i want to be in.
health in body, mind and spirit is what i'm focused on. the rest will follow.

We want to take a moment to share our mission. Yoga Peace Kula is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) who believes the benefits of yoga should be available to all. ⠀
As a non profit yoga studio our mission is to financially make accessible the benefits of yoga and awareness practices to those who otherwise might not be able to afford it. By creating economic diversity within the yoga studio we have the opportunity to bring together diverse communities.⠀
We believe that environment effects the mode, frequency and vibration of an individual. When an individual can be in a serene environment, thought patterns shift and change for the positive. We have created a serene environment within the town of Howell, NJ, a town known for its strip malls along U.S. Hwy 9. Part of our mission is to bring individuals who might not otherwise have access to a serene environment into our space to receive yoga classes. ⠀
Our mission, to diversify yoga studios through providing financially accessible yoga, is met through suggested $10 donation based classes. Cash donations are anonymous placed in a box upon sign in and yoga participants always have the option to give more or less than the suggested $10 donation.⠀
The teachings of yoga beyond a physical exercise are all inclusive, regardless of race, religion, gender, age or physical agility. We seek to make these benefits available by utilizing our studio for specialty class such as Yoga for Limited Mobility and Yoga for Recovery. ⠀
We are proud to offer yoga and mindfulness classes led by some of the finest instructors in Monmouth and Ocean County. All of our instructors are well trained, certified and have years of experience teaching, except our rookie donation classes.
Finally home tonight after an extraordinary 5 days in London and so very surreal to end this trip on such a tragic note. My thoughts are with the victims and families and with everyone living in London. There is a very definite feeling of camaraderie in London since I was last there. These vicious acts will only strengthen that. ✌️️ #london
Don't ever be afraid to go beyond, to move further than you thought you could, to push the boundaries and go to the edge!!!! If I had not made the choices I made this past year, I would still be stuck. I could have run away, I could have, but I didn't. Instead I worked through the "stuff" without fear of what the outcome would be. #fearisnotafactorforme ❤🙏🏻
With all of the body "detoxing" I've been doing (between cupping, muscle release therapy, yoga, meditation, and cleaner eating), I've been working on this mantra this week in all things-- Letting go of things that do not serve me. I am trying to cultivate patience through letting shit go, something that I don't do naturally. I tend to hold on to things that make me comfortable and resist change and difficulty. It's been a work in progress to be okay with whatever comes and I am invested in letting myself remain where I need to be, breathing in what serves, and breathing out what doesn't. Let that shit go. The stress, the anxiety, the anger, the fear. Let go of judgment and perception. It's all in the mind. Breathe and let it go.
