Begin noticing and being careful about keeping your imagination free of thoughts that you do not wish to materialize. Instead, initiate a practice of filling your creative thoughts to overflow with ideas and wishes that you fully intend to manifest. Honor your imaginings regardless of others seeing them as crazy or impossible. ~ Wayne Dyer #Repost @holisticprana with @make_repost ・・・ Tune your energy in alignment to what you desire + M A N I F E S T • #newmoonmagic #powerofthought #manifest #liveonpurpose #purposefulliving #createyourlife #positivethinking #thoughtcreatesreality #nurseyogi #powerofnow #melaninandyoga

What keeps us from our true selves? Is it the fear of not getting it right? Maybe the fear of not looking good enough, smart enough, happy enough? Fear of being excluded? * Somehow, it can get all turned around. Where belonging is wrapped up in someone else's version of you. * None of it's true. * The more honest I am with myself about what I will be part of, the more people I meet who join me. * Have the courage to step forward just as you are. The people who are your people will see you and join you.
Oi... So I'm back to square 1... Maybe 3... With #OneLeggedKingPigeon for Day 4 #PiYogaPants Challenge ...

Wellness Wednesday An active lifestyle enhances one’s mood, and reduces the risk for leading causes of death (ie. heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and diabetes) amongst communities of color.

Bend, twist, expand, extend. You are not meant to fit in a box. (even on ig 😊) * I woke up to this thought as I'm considering moving to a new city, taking a class about a topic I know nothing about, and choosing to go deeper into my growth as a yoga instructor. * Despite not knowing what awaits me on the other side of each decision, I do know I want to grow beyond boxed expectations. * So just like in #warrior3 , I'll reach and extend in either direction -- learn my balance. Stand in my choice, even if it's outside the box.
Art has healed me in the same way that yoga has. They have given me space to acknowledge myself inwardly in a world that always wants your attention...and your energy. Yoga and Art help me to preserve my own power.....and that is what I share when I teach and create.

On days like today I just like to unplug for a while, stay on my mat and ignore the rest of the world. Call it depressed or call it self-care. I like to believe it is me taking care of myself. I was actually able to practice for an hour on my mat beginning with a meditation followed by a Yin flow. . . . . . . . . . . . #journeytoself #mood #marijuana #medicinal #selfcare #blackgirlasana #blackluvyogis #sistersofyoga #blackgirlyoga #yogaafter40 #livetheyogilife #yogagirl #iloveyoga #yogini #yogadaily #yogalife #yogalove #yogisofinstagram #yogaforlife #yogaeveryday #yogalover #igyogacommunity #yogatribe #myyogajourney #igyoga #melaninandyoga #yogainspiration #curvyyoga
Im def late posting my #2018bestnine but this looks about right 😊 Including one of a handful of non-yoga pics I posted for the year, lots of backbends, progress pics and inversions. 😊😊 Needless to say, my practice doesn't look like this as much anymore - my backbends aren't where they used to be, and my inversions are eh...but im okay with that *shock* 🙏🏽 ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #perfectlyimperfect #onebreathatatime #myyogajourney  #keeponkeepingon #practicenotperfection #blackgirlmagic #iriephoenixyogajourney #IrieReset19 #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #Blackgirlsdoyoga #melaninandyoga #sistersofyoga #colorsofohm #plussizeyoga #baremelaninmondays #noperfectyogis   #whereismymat #risethroughselflove #blackgirlyoga #yogachallenge #colorsofyoga

Note to self: Stand strong in your beliefs. Ground yourself in the earth as you commit to growth. Know others may try to uproot you, but that you are forever growing without any reign of shame or guilt.

W A R R I O R ~ Over the weekend I spent some time reflecting (I may or may not have got into a state of overthinking) but whenever I get in this state of mind I write myself a letter as if I were writing to a friend: I’m in awe as you continue to discover layers of yourself under all this armour. You’ve allowed yourself to be vulnerable, you’re taking a chance at flying and landing in places you never thought you would. You’re reaching beyond the limits, that you set yourself. Well done you. Continue to put yourself out there, be vulnerable, build confidence, because it’s pushing you into the direction of being the woman that you so rightfully deserve to be. Back to the full schedule of balancing uni, private clients and classes - catch me if you can 🧘🏾‍♀️ Tuesday ~ community classes @zenubian 6:15pm - 7:15pm Wednesday ~ @anytimefitnesshithergreen 7pm - 8pm Friday ~ @studiokrichmond 6:30pm - 7:30pm **Saturday @yogific 1pm ~ click the link in my bio to check out the festival. If you see me before I see you, come say hey 👋🏾
We have come to the final day of the challenge and it’s bittersweet 😣. You all have been wonderful participants, hosts and sponsors ♥️. I appreciate you all for this amazing journey together. #BeginningToBalance Day 1️⃣4️⃣|| Corpse pose /Crown chakra ➖ Sahasrara or the Crown Chakra is our connection with Divinity; it is the portal through which the life energy enters our body. Without this energy, human beings cannot function properly and tend to feel disconnected with self and others. ➖ “I am open to letting go of my attachments” “I live in the present moment” “I seek experiences that nourish my spirit” - With the final day’s pose being Savasana, I’m sharing these 3 affirmations with you to reflect on as you take time to reflect on the experiences you had during this challenge. I hope you all enjoyed this journey as much as I did! I also ask that you take the information and tools you’ve learned and apply it as best as you can as you see fit. - The task off the mat today is to light a white/violet candle, and repeat ‘OM’ three times. - I know we’re all a work in progress, but change cannot happen from the seat of comfort. Take risks. Trust your instincts. Be present. Show gratitude. Remember we are all connected. We are one. ➖ Plz check out my co-hosts for their beautiful variations and additional information about the task for the day! - Thank you again for participating! This challenge has been amazing because of all of you! 🙏🏾♥️✨ ➖ ↠ Wonderful hosts: @cloudspin_ @heyryanash @journey2antoinette @cassydoesyoga ↠ Amazing sponsors: @letsstartyoga (win one of TWO let’s start yoga guides!) @noplacelikeom_ (win a jade yoga mat!) @vitavieorganics (win a prize of your choice!) ➖ #yoga #yogalover #plussizeyoga #plussizefit #yogaeverydamnday #blackgirlyoga #igyoga #yogamom #yogaposes #igyogacommunity #madaboutyoga #iloveyoga #curvyyogis #curvygirlyoga #biggirlyoga #practicepracticepractice #namaste #yogisofinstagram #melaninandyoga #bodypositive #everybodycanyoga
This is #myselfcaresunday today. Chillax and learn. Sometimes #selfcare is about learning, growing, relearning, and working. Sometimes it’s necessary and if we choose to see it as an opportunity to grow vs. “work,” our attitude toward it changes.

With #grace and #gratitude 🌹💕
Awww! We’re so close to the end of the challenge 😢. I’ve truly enjoyed you all! #BeginningToBalance Day 1️⃣3️⃣|| Child’sPose /Third Eye chakra ➖ “When your third eye is open, you not only see but you also understand.” - The Ajna or Third Eye chakra is the connection to both the inner and outer world. To have the ability to witness AND observe a situation. That’s deep. And extremely necessary while trying to navigate this* world. ➖ The pose we chose for today is child’s pose with Hakini hands. I actually forgot to do that part 🤦🏾‍♀️😅😂, but I’ll post it in my story sometime tomorrow lol. - The Hakini Mudra is the Mudra of concentration or Mudra of the mind. It helps us focus, boosts memory, energizes the brain and promotes calmness. It truly goes hand in hand with connecting to the Third Eye chakra (see what I did there?🤣). - Child’s pose can be a bit tricky if you lack flexibility and or have a little more than a little in the middle 😉. Two ways to modify it to fit your body is by using pillows/cover to bring the ground closer to you, and by widening the knees so you can sink in a little lower while making space for you midsection. - The task off the mat today, well, tonight, is to take some time to look at the stars. Looking out at how massive life is all around us can definitely help guide our minds toward a better perspective. ➖ Plz check out my co-hosts for their beautiful variations. ➖ ↠ Wonderful hosts: @cloudspin_ @heyryanash @journey2antoinette @cassydoesyoga ↠ Amazing sponsors: @letsstartyoga (win one of TWO let’s start yoga guides!) @noplacelikeom_ (win a jade yoga mat!) @vitavieorganics (win a prize of your choice!) ➖ #yoga #yogalover #plussizeyoga #plussizefit #yogaeverydamnday #blackgirlyoga #igyoga #yogamom #yogaposes #igyogacommunity #madaboutyoga #iloveyoga #curvyyogis #curvygirlyoga #biggirlyoga #practicepracticepractice #namaste #yogisofinstagram #melaninandyoga #bodypositive #everybodycanyoga

I'm going to read more this year. Not this 2019 year, but my 26th year. I'm taking it back a decade and a half to when I could read a book cover to cover and my potential wasn't hindered by fear, and I could take these words I soaked up into my brain, and i could rearrange them and string them together into a prose necklace and I'd wear it around my neck and people would be so amazed at how I could say something so meaningful. But lately, my neck has been bare and I'm not as impressionable as I once was and I'm asking myself, "so what?" Well, regardless of if others see the stars in my eyes, I'm going to read more this year. Yeah. Definitely. . . . . #yoga #chubbyyoga #chubbyyogi #insightful insight #fatyoga #fatyogi #curbyyoga #curvyyogi #yogaasana #wheelpose #urdvadhanurasana #melaninandyoga #brownyogi #614yogis #columbusyoga #yogini #yogi #yogateacher #reflections #writing #blogger #plussizeyoga
#BeginningToBalance Day 1️⃣2️⃣|| Supported Fish pose /Throat chakra ➖ The Vishuddha or Throat Chakra is our center of expression in terms of vocalizing truths. The gift of this chakra is accepting your originality, expressing your authentic voice and speaking your truth. As a communication center, it not only allows you to express who you are and what you stand for, but also allows you to listen deeply to another. ➖ It has taken me, at the LEAST, 20 years to activate my power. I feel like people had the perception of me being a door mat, when in reality, they abused my kindness. And I let them. Because I wasn’t confident in my power of self. The more I stood up for myself, spoke my truth and said NO, the more people looked at me sideways and wanted to say that being in a relationship changed me. I used to take offense, but I don’t anymore, BECAUSE THEY WERE RIGHT! But not for their same reasons. - “I am open, clear, and honest in my communication.” ”I have a right to speak my truth.” - Speaking YOUR truth IS a form of self love and helps align this chakra. Don’t be an asshole on one end or a door mat on the other though. Check your ego and intentions before you speak out. That moment between listening and responding is crucial. Take that time to check in with self and be sure and confident in what’s about to come out of your mouth. ➖ Today’s pose is a perfect way to open and help activate the throat chakra. It’s beautiful because you can really get comfortable with it and reflect. Grab some blankets or blocks and place one at the base of your neck/head and the other almost right at the middle of your back at your shoulder blades .for support AND to help release some possible tension there. Also add a blanket under the knees to add support to your lower back. - The mission off the mat is to drink some herbal tea! That’s actually great for me because a goal of mine has been to drink tea FOR REAL now lol. ➖ Plz check out my co-hosts for their beautiful variations. ➖

Fell off this thing some months ago and haven't been back on it since... Fell off in some other areas of life as well... But now that I have mastered in the art of falling I have no fear of rising. "It's not up to you how you fall, it's up to you how far you let yourself fall and how long it takes you to get back up and stand on your own two feet" #fall7timesstandup8 #benddontbreak #dontcountyourselfout #resilience #blackgirlyoga #inversionjunkie #plussizeyogi #plussizeyoga #fullfiguredyogi #yogaeverydamnday #yogisofinstagram #dharmayogawheel #dharmawheel #yogawithlyric #bodypositivity #igyogacommunity #curvyyogis #fatyoga #curvygirlyoga #stripes #popofcolor #everybodyyoga #melaninandyoga #blackgirlasana
