Decided to wear only my finest yoga pants to dinner with Chris tonight 😍
“Yes- I see you say these are squat proof.. but are they Cheesecake Factory proof?” 🤣
“That’s exactly how it is in yoga. The places where you have the most resistance are actually the places that are going to be the areas of the greatest liberation.” — Rodney Yee

Whatever is meant for you in your lifetime will find you. Even if a thousand hurdles comes your way; what is meant for you will not pass you.
Stay focused in your lane.
I don’t often share pics of my yoga practice. Yoga is a part of my daily life and I practice in classes, at home, in airports, at the park, on the beach, in hotel rooms, etc. I tried a new Yoga With Adriene “Dedicate” and found that it was a tad too slow and basic for this yogi, but forced myself to slow down and do it at her pace anyway. #yoga #dailypractice #yogi #yogaeveryday #yogawithadriene #homeyoga #lovemymat

≺I’m not even good enough for me≻ ⠀
an autobiography written by an overly critical Capricorn...⠀
Any other Capricorns feel this? I read this quote a few weeks ago and fell off my chair laughing/crying because it’s SO true. ⠀
This morning I posted a photo of myself thinking it was awesome... I did a really cool handstand! But, the more I looked at it... the more I found flaws, began hating the photo, anxiety sky rocketed, and so I deleted it before too many people saw it. ⠀
Long story short - I realized that I’m still worried about what other people think and say about me. ⠀
I spoke with a lovely soul about this today... and she said “the judgment of others does not affect your inner peace and beauty”. It made me think of how many years I lived my life worrying about what other people thought of me... and how trapped a person can feel by living that way...⠀
Anyway, I’m here to tell you (and me) to stop criticizing, stop judging yourself, stop searching for flaws... just stop all of that shit. Everyone is perfect in their own way - and you don’t need the approval of others to be happy with yourself. Just be the wild thing you are - and the people who belong in your life will find you... and stay ✨
Found a little piece of paradise to practice yoga this morning☀️🧘🏼♀️🇹🇭
Yesssss!!!! Weekend vibes!
Girls and Guys, we invite you on Wednesday at 19.00 on the Breath Work&Sound Healing class using Singing bowls.
In Buddhist practice, singing bowls are used as an auxiliary tool for meditation, prayer and immersion in trance. Chinese Buddhists, for example, use bowls together with moktak (a kind of wooden box) during chants, striking the bowl at the moment of singing a certain phrase in a sutra, mantra or hymn. In Japan and Vietnam, besides, with the help of bowls they measure time in the process of prayer or signal a change in activity. There are quite a few images and sculptures in which this musical instrument appears.
In private collections there are bowls of the 10th-12th centuries, however, the first bowls could have appeared much earlier. By pressing the stick on the edges of the bowl or the weight of the stick, you can get different tonalities. The second version of playing on singing bowls is a gentle blow of a stick wrapped in suede, giving rise to a warm sound, like a bell ringing.
Come on Wednesday to experience the ability of these sounds to relax emotional and even physical tensions.

How I survived my pcos: 2
With my careers and passionate hobbies it was/has been always about others. Whether it’s changing a life , saving a life , helping someone majority of my days were spent caring about other peoples needs and problems. Sometimes that means being ready for whatever is coming. My old partner and I would run through buildings never knowing what’s coming, or running up on someone to pull drugs off because of plain sight it was a thrill but still never does “self” occur. Sure the goals always go home . With yoga- it’s being a therapist, healing people even whether they confided in you or not. A lot of the times you took on whatever they went through as your own problem. Yoga teachers are empaths we don’t know any other way besides compassion and empathy. Now, although that exists so does my newest adventure of real estate. You work day and night with people trying to find their dream home while meeting all the other needs . Everything so far in my life has revolves around : others. So with PCOS you can imagine leaving home feeling gross , tired , bloated and just one of those “ not today” feelings. But you become stronger putting others first. You learn some form of endurance . There are days you just can’t and you just stop. Those days I usually count down too. A lot of people see it on my stories “48 or 72 off” it was time I got to rest or work from home. It comes down to balance and stamina. I always knew I had to mentally prepare for 5 full days like others sometimes I prepared for longer days you knew mid week how you were doing . The first day off I got was steam, hot jet showers, masks and just spa day. Other days I loved going for dinner with my other half , my parents , or sometimes both. PCOS- whether you’re a mom, a woman trying to conceive , or a girl my age just ambitious as hell to get to where I dream of - no one gets what’s happening . Most days went without food because anything that went into me just made me so nauseous . Heating pads and hot baths were my saving grace. At work - well I trained my brain enough to just deal with work . If you can’t control your mind everything you feel will control you. Be strong.
How I’ve survived my Pcos: 1
A little over a year my entire life changed . What began as a knee dislocation ended up with me getting diagnosed with #PCOS
I had no clue as to what that was . My knee dislocation resulted in my super active life to no life in the matter of hours . Obviously that led to weight gain about 30lbs exactly . But it wasn’t just the dislocation- it was my body failing me. I stopped producing basic vitamins like c, d ,b12 to a point of injections being given to me. My body wasn’t producing enough red blood cells either and my iron deficiency led to anemia. Finally for the first time in my life I lost my cycle for 65days and broke out on my face. I never even had acne as a teenager so you can imagine the shock to my body. All this was happening I’m sure for a while but the knee dislocation set off an alarm and everything was just going off. I went to see my gyn and they order so many tests I got tired of giving blood. They stuck a probe in me and showed me what PCOS was. It hurt like hell. I cried a lot. The last 9months of my life were spent just healing the knee and repairing everything going wrong . There’s still a lot wrong but it’s much better than before . The vitamin deficiency was corrected with the help of some injections to bring me back to normal levels now I take them once every three months. My cycle came back immediately with just simple weight loss and going to physical therapy for my knee injury. With the help of diet change and some topical cream my acne was pretty much gone left me with some scarring.
The battle of PCOS isn’t just internal of “ might not have a child or losing weight “ it takes such a toll on your daily existence . Most days I didn’t want to get out of bed it drained all my energy. Eventually I got tired of the feelings and it had to change. After my knee healed it was “ first dance or first hot yoga “ since the injury . I returned to teaching and working and slowly things fell back to place. I know so many women are struggling to keep it together and it’s so hard . But I promise there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. It’s just like I wrote about happiness it’s something you have to work towards daily.
I began typing this post and erased it because I felt it wasn’t raw enough to be felt. The truth is this year sucked (starting with my knee completely blown out but miraculously no surgery). While it had some good perks it just wasn’t enough. However , it made me grow . Grow in ways I didn’t know I would. I learned to trust new people with things I wouldn’t normally and made some really great friends . On the down side I had to let go of a close friend because things changed. I had to let go of someone I love , loved and will continue to love despite everything I was put through. As the year comes to close ( which it needs to faster) I am so proud of everything I am. I meet people I already have known and they look at me and say “ you look great” or “you look happy “ it’s always nice to be kind to people but it’s a really special kind of nice when it’s people who know you.
Keep bending so you don’t break. All these changes eventually stay♥️
Your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. Three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. Your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. When you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels forest fires capable of destroying everything they touch. On the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon. You are so much more.
