This kind of ugly pond that I walk past everyday all of sudden was filled with lotuses...#nofilter The lotus flower 🌺 makes me think of the poem from #theprophet on Self Knowledge :::: but let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure; and seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line. For self is a sea boundless and measureless ... the soul unfolds itself like a lotus of countless petals. My first copy of #theprophet was gifted to me 20 years ago for my high school graduation by a man who went by the name Shakespeare who would come and chat with me every Sunday where I sold hot sauce at the Tastes of Texas in the Dallas Galleria Mall... #life #itsallyoga #memorylane #sundayvibes

πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘ Looking forward to queening & creating around Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ the next 10 days with the homie @sadienardiniofficial ... these are a few snaps from our last visit in #london where I was able to fly over for 1 night in the early Spring to attend workshops at @triyogauk in Camden and squeeze in 1 half day of sightseeing. In true form we hit the incredible #westminsterabbey (I am slightly obsessed with English history!) and whilst there proceeded to step touch, step touch while Arm in Arm down the entire length of the abbey, as if we were being crowned πŸ˜‚πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘(Yes we did.). We then went to tea that turned into dinner that turned into nightcaps at the legendary Savoy + paid our respects to #amywinehouse ... #camden #london #primrosehill #ontheroad #nextadventure

I have been left at home alone all weekend with a very large pineapple that must be eaten by Monday. 🍍What to do?

❀️ Love this image of today's #bastilleday in France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·- an opportunity to be reminded of those who lost their lives in the terror attack in Nice last year #remember & an opportunity to celebrate my connections to this gorgeous country. πŸ™πŸ½
I've been a Francophile since my first trip to France in highschool --- still remember how it took Dad and I two years to save up the $1200 for those 10 days in #London & #Paris, which impacted my life. I couldn't even sleep those 10 days - completely enamored with the grandeur & history of these ancient cities, and with the sounds and vibrancy of city life. Eventually, I earned a minor in French and was blessed to live in Paris for a summer to study while in university. Now it's a 3 hour car ride away... #believe #becomeyourdream

✨ FIRST DAY of SCHOOL ✨. Yep, yours truly has officially begun her state required German language and culture lessons. 4 hours a day for one month @ a time, 5 months total. As much as I was dreading having so much of my day accounted for, the minute I walked into the classroom I was already enjoying myself. I just love learning. I also love being surrounded by classmates who are from every country you can think of. I'm so interested to know their stories. Keeps everything in perspective, when the kid across from you was a high level banker in Syria and now has to start from scratch career wise because none of his credentials are recognized here in Germany; "but - at least he's alive," he said. These gorgeous flowers & what is called a "schultüte" (first day of school treats!) were gifts to me by my honey who picked me up after school, helped me with my homework & treated me to lunch at the brauhaus next to my school! #learn #grow #share #keepitreal #496hourstogo #thisiscologne #germany #brauhaus

Class & Glass Β© was a huge success, we literally transformed the studio into an art gallery & a wine bar. I have always loved art & actually entertained becoming a curator during my undergrad. It was amazing to bring all these elements together #art #wine #yoga #community ... bit of a dream come true!! Thank you to everyone from @theyogaloftcologne who supported this inaugural event. @meinhardtjudith for being our guinea pig artist & @soniabach108 for letting me run with this idea & to you + @lacorraine for taking the students deep. ❀️ to @nahaltav for being such a fabulous co-hostess with the mostest! We truly had a chance to savor the moment and to savor each other's company. πŸ’‹πŸ·πŸ“ΏπŸŽ¨πŸ‘ŒπŸ½Next event 7/21 with the divine @sadienardiniofficial ...

Somehow I missed #fathersday - πŸ™ˆ. Love this pic of my dad giving me my first bath. My mom had pretty severe post partum anxiety so my dad was πŸ’― responsible for me the first three weeks of my life. Shout out to all the dads out there stepping up to raise them babies. #betterlatethannever πŸ’‹

✨ V I S I O N ✨- the act or power of anticipating that which will or may come to be. Having a clear vision of what you desire is the very first step towards manifesting it. You must see it to achieve it. Today I give thanks for this process as we celebrate mid-year goals & learnings @yamatalent and as we launch our Class & GlassΒ© + Art of Yoga Series @theyogaloftcologne πŸ“· photo taken @tascadalmerita #capofaro by the divinely talented @alessandromoggi my favorite things are all coming together: #art #yoga #wine #community --- you can read about how this VISION began @theyogaloftcologne ...

After the rain. Pride started early. #nofilter #prana #patagonia

flying high after an amazing two days with one of my oldest & dearest friends @ujjwal_munjal & his wife @sonaal_07 & their 2 handsome mischievous boys and his parents too. Ujjwal and I attended @pepperdine together & managed to both attend each other's weddings. We did plenty of sightseeing, LOTS of eating, hit the outdoor movies and, of course, made a good old trip down memory lane. Feeling super blessed to have long relationships!

😎 First weekend off and at home in an entire year. #yogateachers can ya feel me? @soniabach108 usually teaches Friday night & Sunday morning ... This weekend we took Sunday off & explored #cologne --- sunglasses / bicycles / impromptu picnics / street food festival / cooling off with great beer in the funkiest brauhaus's we could find... Literally running into good friends ALL along the way ... #summer #thisiscologne #yesmyhairislongenoughforpigtails #mondaymotivation #savor #thethingsthatmatter
