For the first time ever Iโ€™m missing family Thanksgiving with my parents. The plague has hit our house. ๐Ÿ˜ท๐Ÿคข But, thatโ€™s ok. My boys need me. And i kind of need them too. Iโ€™m not feeling ๐Ÿ’ฏ. ๐Ÿ˜ญ There will always be leftovers. What are you thankful for today? Iโ€™m thankful for these 2 boys that call me โ€œmamaโ€ and still think i hung the moon. And of course Iโ€™m thankful for my best friend in the whole, wide world. @paweeyums โค๏ธ Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are spending it with the people you love! ๐Ÿฆƒ๐Ÿ๐Ÿฝ

Hey yโ€™all! ๐Ÿ‘‹ I got a lot of comments and DMs about my last post. And it still has me thinking. ๐Ÿค” To all of you that commented or saw my post and didnโ€™t comment (but feel it too), or sent me a DM...thank you! Yโ€™all have inspired me to #makeinstagreatagain ๐Ÿ˜‚ I really miss the old days of Insta yoga- 15 second videos. No music. Struggles. So many struggles. ๐Ÿคฃ Laughs. Bad lighting. Friends. Just SHOWING UP. And most importantly- not caring about likes or followers. What are followers anyway? Random strangers who you will NEVER meet or even know they exist? Weird accounts that may not even be real? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Donโ€™t get me wrong- I have people who I interact with on here and I love that, but I definitely donโ€™t interact with ten thousand people. And I have a full time job, soooo...Insta isnโ€™t my livelihood. And I donโ€™t have the time or passion to make it a full time job. Itโ€™s supposed to be fun- a hobby. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Not a place to make you feel bad or less than. I made this funky pincha video a couple of weeks ago. And I never posted it. I do that all the time. I look at pics and vids and think, โ€œI look gross in that pic. Iโ€™m bloated. People will think Iโ€™m fat (or pregnant- Oh, please donโ€™t think that! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ) That transition was shaky. That was the worst handstand.โ€ Uhhhh...news flash. Thatโ€™s what I really look like. ๐Ÿคฃ Why do I expect to be something that Iโ€™m not? Or why do I want to project on social media to be something that Iโ€™m not? Iโ€™m 35. Mom. Teacher. Not really in the coolest category right now according to likes and follows. ๐Ÿ˜† Putting all of these feelings out there doesnโ€™t embarrass me. It actually feels quite liberating. Saying all of this out loud and announcing it on social media is giving me life right now. ๐Ÿคช Iโ€™m sick of always over analyzing myself and my videos or pics because Iโ€™m worried about what others will think. This is me. Iโ€™m so imperfect itโ€™s not even funny. And I wouldnโ€™t change it at all. Whoโ€™s with me? Bring back the realness. I want to see bad lighting. Ugly handstands in your pajama pants. Bloopers. Struggles. Laughs. And fun! And since Iโ€™m not offering an Alo discount code, yโ€™all can unfollow me now...kidding.๐Ÿ˜ฌ #oginstayoga

๐Ÿšจ Lengthy post warning. ๐Ÿšจ And read the whole thing before you judge. Something has been bothering me so much lately. And it all has to do with me, so this isnโ€™t directed at anyone. Itโ€™s all me. ๐Ÿ˜• I started my insta Yoga account almost 3 years ago. There have been ups. And downs. Itโ€™s been mostly good. I have made amazing connections with some awesome people. I have even had the honor to meet some of them in real life. (Hello @eileendelatorre @moj88 @livinleggings ๐Ÿ‘) This space has taught me a lot on many levels. My asana practice is constantly being pushed because of the inspiration I find here. Sometimes i feel very extroverted and itโ€™s easy to share. I am a natural sharer. If you know me in real life, you know that I talk. A lot. And Iโ€™m pretty much an open book. Itโ€™s hard for me to be fake or pretend. So, i feel like my yoga account is authentic and you are getting the real me in these squares. I started this account to document my yoga journey and to connect with other people doing the same. The insta Yoga community was relatively small then. I participated in a lot of challenges and I didnโ€™t care what my lighting looked like, or what yoga leggings I had on, or if my background was my messy living room, or if my bra matched my leggings, or anything really. I just posted because I was documenting and learning and having fun along the way. And then the Yoga community grew. And it grew. And it continues to grow. And as I scroll through my feed it is full of beautiful yoga poses on remote beaches and perfect bodies and perfect legging brands and seemingly perfect lives. And thatโ€™s all I see. And over the past year my Yoga account has become irrelevant in terms of insta Yoga. My account doesnโ€™t grow. I donโ€™t engage with people like I used to. And all of that started to make ME feel irrelevant. So, this space became unhealthy for me. Thatโ€™s ego. Iโ€™m not above calling myself out even when itโ€™s hard to recognize something bad in yourself. I talked to my husband about all of this and I was embarrassed to even bring it up. Heโ€™s my forever bestie and I didnโ€™t even want to admit it to him. ๐Ÿ˜• Continued in comments (sooo long ๐Ÿ˜ฑ)

Tomorrow is the final day of #GratitudeGiveGrow. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ–ค This challenge has exceeded ALL of my expectations. Yโ€™all really showed up this week. Iโ€™m telling you from the bottom of my heart that I have felt so much LOVE from yโ€™all. You have blessed me all week with your posts. YOU make a difference! So, thank you. .

Tomorrow is Day 5 of #GratitudeGiveGrow. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ–ค We are going to put our phones away! Yaaasss! And the pose is any #lowlunge. So, let me be straight with you...I love these squares, but I am so ready to disconnect from social media and put my phone down. Sometimes i have to walk away from my phone because it distracts me from my real life. So, letโ€™s reconnect with the people that are right in front of us. Look people in the eyes today and let them know that you see them! ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿค— I have read all of your posts in the gallery and yโ€™all are showing up and itโ€™s so awesome!!! Even if i donโ€™t comment, Iโ€™m reading about all of your gratitude and kindness and itโ€™s making my heart so full! I will catch back up with you on Saturday because Iโ€™m walking away from my phone tomorrow! โœŒ๏ธ ๐Ÿ’• .

Tomorrow is Day 3 of #GratitudeGiveGrow. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ–ค We are bringing you camel pose and a donation. The donation can be anything- clothes, household items, time, money, emotions, etc. I know that when i give it brings me so much joy. It feels so good to help someone in need. So, we are doubly blessed when we give. Letโ€™s go through our closets and find items we can pass along to someone else. Give up some of your time to listen to a friend that needs you right now. Tip a little extra today when youโ€™re out at lunch. Follow through on donating to that charity youโ€™ve been thinking about. Find a way to GIVE TODAY. โŒโญ•๏ธโŒโญ•๏ธ Camel Pose inspired by the always beautiful @amandastammy .

Just because. Itโ€™s Tuesday. ๐Ÿคช #toetaptuesday

Officially my new favorite emoji: ๐Ÿคช Does anyone else think in emojis? Emojis pop up in my head all day long. Thatโ€™s all. ๐Ÿคช #emoji

Tomorrow is Day 2 of #GratitudeGiveGrow. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ–ค I loved seeing all of your humble warriors and acts of kindness on day 1. Yโ€™all are awesome! We are bringing you upward facing dog and setting your intention for the day for Day 2.

I recently started setting my intention for the day and it has made a huge difference. When I finish my morning practice I choose a word or a phrase to (hopefully) direct my day. I seem to find myself picking the same words day after day: joy, patience, and kindness seem to be my 3 go to words. Another intention I set in the mornings is an action and that is- MAKING OUR BEDS. All beds have to be made before we are out the door. And sometimes that is the hardest task of my day. But, I canโ€™t start my day on an unmade bed. Everything feels like itโ€™s falling apart if I let that go. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™ˆ Always running late, but our beds are made and Iโ€™ve promised myself to be a little more joyful, patient, and kind. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ What will your intention be? ๐Ÿ–ค

Just hanging with @kathrynbudig while she gives me cues on this flow. Ok, via @yogaglo on my iPad. ๐Ÿ˜œ You can hear her sped up chipmunk voice. I never video my regular practice. Itโ€™s my rule. But, today the flow was so good that i did it again and videoed this part to share. ๐Ÿ˜…The flow built up this sequence and kept moving and building the fire all the way to the end. I loved it. No time for thoughts. Just complete surrender to the moving meditation. Yeeessss. And donโ€™t judge my sad kick ups to handstand. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ This was at the very end of my regular practice and play time. What kind of flows are your favorite?! ๐Ÿ–ค
