What happens after I drink my morning green smoothie 🍓🍍🌱🙌😋⚡️ Actually the inspiration to play in the kitchen came from @skywalkeriam ✨🤗 This post also contains a hidden truth. Behind each shiny IG yoga pose, there’s a big pile of dirty dishes in the sink 😂 😂. Happy Friday 🙌🎉

“Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love” - Rumi ⭐️ Awaken your heart ❤️ Vinyasa Flow 6:30 am @yogayogaaustin Westgate ❤️ Sukha Flow 12 noon ❤️ Sukha Glow 7:30 pm @sukhayogaaustin

We seem to spend a lot of time covering up what is simple and natural and beautiful and pure. But there is an innate joy in living simply and in harmony with nature. Our bodies are created miraculous and beautiful. Girl parts and boy parts were made to be playful and fun. Food that comes from the earth is perfectly made for our health and cannot be made more so by adding cool ranch flavor. Simple is beautiful. Natural is beautiful. My teacher and friend @siri_bster says “we were made to travel light”. Just repeating that makes me feel happy 😊 Stripping our lives down to the essence of what is important helps us experience the joy and deep peace in the connection between our divinity, and the magical mystery tour of being human.

Join the fight 😂. May all beings be free from suffering and may we still find moments to laugh at this crazy life. Every kindness counts.

I’m currently in week 4 of a 12 week training program learning how to press into hand stand. I think the motion of a press is beautiful and I’m fascinated by the body’s ability to defy gravity. It just looks FUN! 🤸🏻‍♂️✨ But along with gaining strength and learning technique, I’m also being forced to confront lots of limiting beliefs about myself. It’s amazing how one minute we can aspire to goals and dreams that make us feel awake and alive and fun, and the next minute we’re trapped in a limiting story and a million reasons why we’re just not capable. I think the key is, as with all things, that happiness and joy are not waiting for us at the end when we get the thing. Rather it’s the journey of self discovery, and the experience of truly being alive along the way, and all the unexpected doors that life opens when you honor yourself and the universe with trust and consistent effort. Living life as a curious adventure is where the real joy and freedom come from. We’re already whole. We don’t need the thing at the end. But damn it’s fun to play the game. Come play with me! Today 6:30 am Vinyasa @yogayogaaustin Westgate & 7:30 pm Glow @sukhayogaaustin South

I love forward folds. I slowly let each inhale bring me more fully into the moment, and each exhale I let go of a little more tension and resistance in my body. After a few breaths I feel a sense of reverence, bowing to my sacred cosmic Self, and letting the facade of my individual small self melt away. And it feels pretty good in my hamstrings too 😂 😂 🙏🏼✨💓

Suns out buns out 😎🏝 #hippiehollow #nature

“V” for victory over manic Monday! 🙌✨ 😂

“Me and this morning. The waking sun, the sleeping world. I begin to wonder how I ever believed that this was not enough. Sitting here, just the earth and all it’s glory. And the sun shining on me. I am content here. Soaking up the warm earthy energy. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be” -Thomas Merton. 🔸 There is so much to discover. Right here, this moment. This beautiful, miraculous body. This breath. Sukha Flow 9am, Sukha Glow 12:30 pm Today @sukhayogaaustin

“Between the dusk of a summer night. And the dawn of a summer day. We caught at a mood as it passed in flight. And we bade it stoop and stay...” - William Ernest Henley 🤗✨💓
