Here is another hip opener without the 🐶 . . . I know that she 🐶 intended to photobomb my pictures on purpose simply because she wants me to keep practicing hip openers 😩 . . . .

I hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday. I honestly didn’t do much today; stayed home, did some laundry, began sorting my closet, did 10 minutes of yoga and watched a lot of tv. Some days are like that and that’s fine by me. . . . #journeytoself #selfcaresunday #blackluvyogis #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga

I just had to find another yoga Challenge to jump on so here is day 1 of @doyouyoga ’s #doyougetcalm yoga challenge and the poss is Lotus (my knees wont allow me to do full lotus as yet). . .

Day 3 || of #yogiexpressions is an inversion. . . By now, I’m sure everyone knows how my I LOVE headstands lol. So of course, that’s the pose I chose for today. Any time I do them, I get this sense of strength and confidence. Like if I’m able to stand on my head, I can stand firm and get through anything. .

Our bodies biochemically change when we slow the breath down and become present in the current moment. Our heart rate slows down, stress hormones measurably decrease and the feelings of wellbeing increase as a result. Clear your thoughts. Your body will thank you! #Repost @iamjohamilton with @get_repost #melaninandyoga #breathe #alignment #yoga #yogaformentalhealth #awareness #mindbodyspirit

Day 2 || of #yogiexpressions is a twist. . . I chose thread the needle as my twisting pose. I don’t like twisting poses tbh lol but they are VERY necessary. It’s always a rude awakening when I finally do a twisting pose/variation because just like everything else, you’ll lose it if you don’t use it 🤦🏾‍♀️😩. . .

I really am enjoying my daily practice, and yes, I do practice everyday; sometimes it’s only 15 minutes and other days it’s an hour. Today I practiced for 50 minutes and focused a lot own shoulder and hip openers which are my tightest areas on my body. It’s not about perfection, it’s about showing up, doing the work and appreciate what my body can do today. • • • • • #journeytoself #selflove #practiceandalliscoming #blackluvyogis #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #blackgirlasana #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga
with so much on our plates its only natural for us to find ourselves getting caught up and overwhelmed with our many things to do.⁣ ⁣ when i feel like my life is moving too fast for my liking I usually take a day off. ⁣ i am a strong believer in the power of a mental health day. ⁣ it gives you the opportunity to create space to give love to yourself and to your life. ⁣ ⁣ i preform this act of reconnection by replenishing my vessel, reaffirming to myself that finding the sweetness in solitude is something i am entitled too! I⁣’m am allowed to sip all the tea, do all the face masks and just simply be. ⁣ ⁣ on those days i look back at how far i have come, knowing that i wouldnt have made it this far if didn’t stop and create space for rest. ⁣ ⁣ when life gets to crazy do your best to create space for yourself to simply be. ⁣ ⁣ final day of #collegeyogicommunity .⁣ this tbt to summer is so fitting since how last night new york experienced its first snow fall of the winter ❄️ 💛
Yesterday was amazing and I can still feel it 😅. My body hurts like a mf, but in a good way I guess lol. . . Here’s a little crow practice. I say a little because my mind wasn’t completely convinced I should work on crow but my body said go for it lol. . . This is pretty much what my crow practice looks like. In these 60 seconds, a shit-ton of nerves and wild thoughts are coming mat me telling me all types of wild stuff, but I just kind of throw caution to the wind (not really, but you get it....I hope lol) and see what happens. . . I know I have to work on a lot of mechanics here, but I also need to work on how I “land” 😂😅🤣 . . #yoga #yogalover #plussizeyoga #plussizefit #yogaeverydamnday #blackgirlyoga #igyoga #yogamom #yogaposes #igyogacommunity #madaboutyoga #iloveyoga #curvyyogis #curvygirlyoga #biggirlyoga #practicepracticepractice #namaste #yogisofinstagram #melaninandyoga #bodypositive #everybodycanyoga #balance #pose #blackgirlasana #yogaflow #plussize #fatyoga #crowpose
I generally try to be a straight forward person because that way no one can say they didn’t understand me. I really don’t do fake. Just be real, people are going to love you and hate you just the same. Better they hate you for being who you really are than to love you for being someone who you are not. • • • • • #journeytoself #beyourself #blackluvyogis #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #blackgirlasana #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga
I got up and went to the gym this morning before opening the studio. I was so happy with myself, I love AM workouts 🥰 . . Today’s workout in particular was chest and back, a lot of pushing and pulling 💪🏽 . . Soo I got on my mat for some twists and turns in my spine, a lil back bending, chest openers, and of course... got open up these hips! 🤗 . . The video is sped up but I definitely sit in these for 10 full breaths. Fill your lungs allll the way up, and completely exhale out 💖
It’s not about being perfect. I am so imperfect, but at least I am perfectly imperfect. Strive to be the best that you can be. Don’t strive for perfection because you will never attain it and you will make yourself (and those around you) miserable trying to reach the unattainable. When you strive to be the best you can be, you will not fail. You may slip, fall, make mistakes, but as long as you are willing to put in the work to be the best that you can be, you will become the best version of yourself; and there’s no one better to be than you🙏🏼 . . . . . #journeytoself #perfectlyimperfect #yogaflow #blackluvyogis #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga
Because wheel pose is bae (sometimes lol). . . If you watched my video (previous post) then you may have caught a glimpse of these struggle variations lol. I say struggle because they were a struggle to do 😅. My hand was still in pain from my struggle bus drop back but I still wanted to see where my comfort was with these. They were rushed, but I did them 😅🤣 . . As for everything else I planned on posting tonight, I’m over it lol. It’s been a long day. I’ll post them tomorrow. I did post some in my IG story though, so there’s that 🤷🏾‍♀️😂 . . 🔸🔸Waistbeads are from @oshunsmarketplace 🔸🔸 . . #yoga #yogalover #plussizeyoga #plussizefit #yogaeverydamnday #blackgirlyoga #igyoga #yogamom #yogaposes #igyogacommunity #madaboutyoga #iloveyoga #curvyyogis #curvygirlyoga #biggirlyoga #practicepracticepractice #namaste #yogisofinstagram #melaninandyoga #bodypositive #everybodycanyoga #balance #pose #blackgirlasana #yogaflow #plussize #fatyoga #wheelpose #wheelposevariation
I have a lot to post, but I’m gonna spread it out between my IG story, here, and 🔸IG TV 🔸 . . First off, I HAD A GREAT FUCKING DAY! The best part about it is that NOTHING really went according to plan 🤣🤣🤣. . . If you’ve followed me since the beginning of my journey (before my original page got shut down 🙄) then you would see how BIG this REALLY is. At one point in time, I would’ve had a meltdown because things didn’t go according to plan. Like as soon as ONE thing would go to shit, the whole entire day was OVER. I’d have an attitude or I’d jump right into some unhealthy coping mechanism (usually overeating) and sulk. But nope 🙅🏾‍♀️, not today!!! . . It’s been raining all day, we missed an appointment, wasted gas, munchkin didn’t want to take a nap so that had me stopping and starting my practice, and this is among OTHER things lol. But guess what? None of it ruined my mood or my practice or my day in general. I could cry out of happiness because as much as I peep my progress in different areas, I kind of skipped over stuff like this lol. . . I’m just always grateful for growth. Whether it’s a lot or a little, it’s growth nonetheless. . . If you’ve made it this far, you’re dope af lol. Keep going! . . Ok so this was my first time trying to drop back into when since the beginning of this year. I managed to try it these 2 times. If you pay attention on the second try, I hurt my hand 🤦🏾‍♀️😩😩. I dropped to quick and I psyched myself out. You’ll also hear me “pop” it too 😁. It still hurts, but I’ll be okay. It comes with the territory sometimes 🤷🏾‍♀️. Next time bae will be assisting me 😂😂😂. . .

Yesterday I almost fell down a flight of stairs. Like I was going head first! I think my life flashed before my eyes 😳😂 . . But I caught myself. Thank goodness for hip stability. My knee is a lil banged up, but I’m good 😎 . . Needless to say I’ll continue doing my hip openers like everyday... helping me either remain stable or master the art of falling 🙃
Because I live in Jamaica where it is hot year round I tend to forget that it is cold in many parts of the world right now. But sadly I am being reminded right here on the gram when I see people stupidly doing yoga in tights in the snow. I will never understand this crazy phenomenon. Were people this stupid before social media or did social media just make them this stupid? I swear, ain’t nobody was doing yoga in the snow, in tights before the gram so please stop the madness unless you really want to come down with the flu or pneumonia. This is a Public Service Announcement, just trying to prevent someone from getting sick unnecessarily. . . . . #journeytoself #stopthemadness #heretoinspire #selflove #blackluvyogis #flyageless #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yoga #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga #bodypositive

Surrender means the descion to stop fighting the world and to start loving it instead. It is a gentle liberation from pain” @mariannewilliamson i encourage you to choose love and kindness today, let people be people, remain soft and determined at the same time! a piece of advice id like to gain is if you guys know any tips/resources that helped you become a better saver/spender and budgeting.

Happy 11/11 ✨ Give your imagination an open channel through which it can express itself and you’ll find that a whole new world can open up for you. - I’m creative when I’m doing what I love. I’m more in tune with myself when I take an intentional moment to embrace the present... I take notice of my wandering thoughts without being judgmental. I’ve learned how to refocus on my intentions. When I feel my body reacting to my environment, I readjust and align myself to be grounded in the present. But I know that I need to be more immersed with my heart’s desire. I’m taking the steps... always learning, changing and growing... that’s beautiful to me ❤️
When I left Albany I had a 2.3 GPA. I was failing classes for my major and my values were alll out of wack. That summer filled me with so much doubt. Failing in academics was very unfamiliar to me...I didn’t know how to handle it and what did it mean? Should I give up my love for science and reading? Did this mean I wasn’t as smart as I thought I was? That summer I went through a lot of soul searching I realized that I shouldn’t judge my worth by my production value or how I did on test scores. ____ The journey of a health science student is anything but easy but you don’t have to just brave through it, praying you make it out alive. I learned that if know your brain is powerful beyond limits and that time is your friend, then your goals start to align with your being and meeting them does seem like such a daunting task. ____ So I left that big university, transferred to my community college. Picked up my yoga and mindfulness practice and got back to work. I’m now finishing my senior year off with a 3.8 GPA.💛 Moral of the story is to find your rhythm and keep dancing 💃🏾🙌🏾 _____ Day 5 of #collegeyogicommunity
#throwback to 2011 (Note the 11 👀) #reflections . #111111 . I was being “called” back in 2011, I not only passed up the opportunities that literally fell on my lap then, but I actively pushed them away. I didn’t feel prepared or ready or . . . worthy. . .bottom line I allowed FEAR to paralyze me. It’s 2018, (11-11-11) and I still don’t feel ready or prepared most days yet I show up and I am doing the work to be as ready as possible. I continue to feel the calling. I used to ask, why me? But now, I’m becoming more comfortable saying, why not me? Over the past year, I’ve accomplished, done and been provided opportunities I never imagined could ever be possible. I couldn’t even have dreamed about how it would present and yet it did, most times literally falling on my lap. I’m learning to let go of the doors that close or don’t feel right, even when it means turning away opportunities. I do this work because change is needed, required, demanded at this time, from a humanitarian perspective, for our survival. So I’ll continue following the call. I have no idea where this road will take me or where I’ll end up or how my dreams will manifest but what I do know is...I will not let it pass me by, this time. I will be attuned and tapped into my intuition. There will be distractions, barriers and challenges but I’m built strong. I’m literally cut from a different cloth. I know how to push hard, I have excellent work ethic and I also know how to listen a little better this time around. (Still a work in progress and it will always be. 🤪🤣) I’m also happy exactly where I am. There’s a reason I need to take this road, a reason I feel the calling...so I press on in faith that the divine purpose will manifest and I trust that the road will unfold exactly as its supposed too. Trust. Equanimity. Faith. Purpose. #111111 #divinity #divinepurpose #sobeit #ase #faith #presson #iam #trust #equanimity #faith #purpose #yoga #melaninandyoga
