Balance is key to everything.
What we do, think, say, eat, feel, they all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow.

It is not about having perfect and kind thoughts all of the time, it is about not feeding the heavy and mean thoughts. Literally letting them pass without allowing them to take root and control your actions. -Yung Pueblo

Financial abuse is invisible abuse!
Today I had the opportunity to take part in the filming of a public service announcement about this very serious and demoralizing form of abuse that many women endure.
Many don’t speak of this form of manipulation/abuse out of shame or to avoid being called a “gold digger”. Some don’t even know that they are being subjected to this type of victimization or what to do about it.
If money is being used as a form of control in your relationship through your partners acts of withholding, verbal degradation and/or if you are being manipulated, used for or kept from your hard earned money without consent or reason, please seek help!
Much gratitude to @allstatepurplepurse
for giving a voice to the voiceless & providing resources to those looking for a way out. #safewayout
Here are some cute bumbles, living their life, doing their work. Been deep in training the last 3 days (with 2 more to go) and my glass feels so over flowed...this teacher always has me questioning everything about yoga I’ve been taught and it feels good but is also intensely humbling. So thankful for these lessons and the opportunity to do my work. Thankful for the privilege to explore what I feel called to. In line with the 6 Indian schools of philosophy used in Ayurveda-there is yoga. .
Yoga means union (remembering there are no “direct” translations). According to Patanjali, the yogi who organized yogic theory through the sutras, there are 8 tenants or methods to attain enlightenment. Yama/the five restraints, Niyama/the five observances, Asana/postures, Pratyahara/withdrawal of the senses, Dharana/one pointed focus, Dhyana/meditation, and Samadhi/bliss.
Me: *has 500 things to do*
Also me: Let's go SUP boarding down 8 miles of river! 💛 Happiness is my priority 💛
Every year I watch my body transform, evolve and change in ways I had not expected. I am learning to embrace and love the softness and curves of my body. I am embracing my sensuality as a woman. I know that on my journey, the vessel of my skin and bones will continually shift to respond to new adventures and reflect my journey on the earth. I am grateful for my body. I choose to be sweet towards it, sending kind messages, like “I love you” In the end my smile and light will always be the same, will always be me. .

First things first: thank so much for all your messages and comments yesterday! You’re simply amazing 🙌🏼☀️
Lately I’ve been focusing more on my legs, especially on strengthening them. Because - don’t skip leg day. We always talk about stretching the backside of the legs, of strengthening the core and coming on the hands whether it’s for handstand or downward dog. But in a good practice you’ll have to come to that point where you’re legs burn and wobble (at least I have). And you notice quickly a change. Maybe you remember your first utkatasanas - how you were suffering because it was so hard. And then think of your utkatasanas now - I’m sure you feel different, not that it isn’t hard anymore, but you feel your legs working and with every time you feel that you’re stronger than that fire burning chair pose.
Having strong legs is so important for strength in general and endurance and never wrong to focus on.
Aaaand don’t forget - it’s also very good for our gluteus maximus 🍑🙌🏼
Lately I found this beautiful asana that felt so good and strong and believe me, coming on one leg I felt my leg working like 💪🏼 #legdayworkout #dontskiplegday #yogastrong #staystrong #practicepracticepractice #yogabody #aloyoga #beagoddess #werbung
Brand new day, brand new opportunities await... Make S P A C E for them!
Taking the time to watch the sunrise over the beautiful Mackay marina this morning, knowing that any time I invest in observing nature and coming out of distractions of the mind, is time well spent 👌💛☀️
We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the ocean... and you don't believe in miracles?✨
Good night lovely souls 🌙👁️✨ #miracles #sunset #believe
