Day 5// Aparigraha: non grasping, non attachment. How fitting that it's the last day of our retreat in Zanzibar. I wish I could bottle up all of the people and energy from throughout the week to keep with me forever. But in practicing what we preach, I am soooo grateful for this opportunity and the magical week we spent together, but I know we must move on. Until next time my loves 🌎💕✨ Last sunrise in Zanzibar 🙌🏼💫 ✈️ España bound
An offering, a prayer:
May I be unafraid.
May I trust myself.
May I step into my power.
May I move into my light.
May I offer, once again, my deep love to the world.
May I hear.
May I listen.
May I return to the earth.
And just like that, I've visited 50 countries. 50! Yet sometimes I still just feel like a little girl naked and wandering. But I'm not. Cloaked in my own power, covered in light I walk empowered toward my destiny. This is my dharma. So it continues....
The very first day I felt overwhelmed like, "what the hell have I gotten myself into?"
Parts of my head wanted to leave the room, run away, but my heart was present. Grounded. Keeping me there.
I can already feel this experience changing my life which I fully came into awareness of while sobbing towards the end of group practice.
My mat was equal parts sweat and tears and it's only been one day.
I'm in this now to explore the depths of healing I can create for myself and others while also continuing to commit myself to this healthful lifestyle. The tears will again surface and I will meet them with acceptance for all that I am and all I have yet to become.
I haven't known how to write about this. I've held onto this photo for a week, hoping that the right words to describe this experience would arrive and weave themselves into a symphony that would match the one that played in my heart when this moment was sealed in time.
It's a week later and all I've got is this - teaching my first yoga class was one of the most beautiful, sacred, joyful, expansive, humbling, terrifying, ego-checking, and divinely intuitive experiences of my life. And that, in and of itself, was poetry.
I go forth in wonderment.
Day 🔟 #Yogahealingcrystals today we have shoulderstand go and see gorgeous @bek_rox for the crystals and her description. .

Enjoying a couple of weeks of #trekking in Nepal with my husband after completing my 200hr #ytt in #Rishikesh ! This country never stops to amaze me - snowy mountains one day and jungle safari the next! Kind people who don't let anything bring them down and stunning nature! #blessed
Saturday afternoon Hot Power Yoga 🙏🏼❤ Was just what I needed. I've been in a slump this week a bit mentally with my workouts and eating and always always know when I come back to yoga, focus on yoga and find my breath I end up coming home. It's my reset button 🙌🏼❤ it was SO hard tho, hot heated room, powerful poses that push you to your edge ain't no joke! 😳💦 Obsessed with these Lulu tights too, this color is just 🔥❤ perfect for a class that soaks you head to toe 😂
CHANGE. I have said this before and I will undoubtedly say it again, but why use our energy to resist change when we could use it to embrace new challenges and new experiences? Change is our only constant, it's a waste of our precious energy to fight it, yet so many of us still try and prevent it from happening. Just look at nature and the speed at which it flourishes with change... we can do that too. Our body changes on a daily basis, as I talk about in my latest blog. Can you fall in love with the potential that change brings? Can you accept change and embrace it?

•YTTC DAY 21•
Last teaching day! And i am so happy there are more and more positive feedback on my teaching. Of coz i am not perfect, bimbo moments at its best still. I get my left and right mixed up too. But because of such mistakes, there's room for me to improve. With practice, slowly but surely i will get there. And i am so glad to share the benefits of breathing and sun salutation today because i felt the changes in me and i want others to feel it in their body too. I actually have alot more to share but i will sound too naggy. Haha.
Ok! Getting ready for my exams next week. Haven done many assignments yet. Phew.. One at a time!! #ytt#yogateachertraining#theyogamandala#sgyogis#yogaeverydamnday
||BOTTOMS UP 🍑|| Happy weekend team! One more yoga class for the day & I'll be joining you!!! Very excited for our hard earned day off tomorrow. 160/200 hours #YTT done ✔️🙏🏼✨If anyone needs me....I'll be at the beach 🌊🌴🏄🏼♀️ #surfsup#happyweekend#tonewhatyouown
This incredible week of YTT immersion in Bali has meant more to me than I ever imagined. "Transformative experience" is an understatement, and I'm certain both my body and mind will never be the same again. My heart is so full of love for the people I've met during this journey, and I head back to Melbourne tonight feeling so inspired and full of excitement and anticipation for what's to come. Yoga every damn day.
Playing around with some crescent lunge variations. I usually hate transitioning from crescent lunge to warrior 3, but slowing down the movement between liftoff and landing has helped introduce a little grace.

Karma Yoga moments with @kaiavieira teaching me first guitar grips between classes ☺🎶🍀☀️ Karma Yoga is the Yoga of action, the path of selfless service. An action with no thought of personal reward. By not thinking of your own personal needs and desires, and by trying to help everybody around us, including human beings, animals, the planet and the whole world. The heart is expanded, egoism destroyed and One-ness realized. Karma Yoga can be practised at all times, under all conditions, anywhere there is a desire to all selfless service. • Make human life a better place and more productive, feeling and giving place to live in • ( first step: cutting my nails^^) #karma#karmayoga#learningguitar#iamx#running#ytt#yogasoul 🌹finest motivation @iamx 🖤

Today is the Ether Element.
Akash - Ether or space
The qualities of Akash or ether element are clear, light, subtle, and immeasurable. When there is a cavity or space with freedom to move, resonance of sound is present. That is why the tanmatra of Sound and the Ear which perceives it. How do you create space on your body, in your mind, in your life for resonance, beautiful sound, for your voice to be heard or to exalt that which you revere. Let today's post be an expression of this most subtle element!
Weekend vibes 🌸🌸🌸 I'm off to @thehillsarealivefestival to hit some skins with @caitibakermusic today, then teaching tomorrow (Sunday) morning at @omyogaaustralia 9.30am Vinyasa and 10.45am Yin! Catch you on the flip side!
