My best friend sent me a message today stating something along the lines, a soul that travels two roads at the same time, ends up going no where. -
-
It instantly brought me to the famous Robert Frost poem...-
-
“Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”-
-
I have always loved this ever since I first read it in middle school. Every-time I saw a fork in the path in the forest (no pun intended) I would recite it. -
-
I see that these two passages really are very different in direct meaning. However, I have been reading the book “Transitions” which goes into detail the idea of humans and how we transition. Typically if we follow suit, there is a ending, middle icky/confusing stage often sadness and dismay resides here and then long behold a beautiful beginning. Well, it doesn’t often go as planned. Simply because it’s our nature to avoid the uncomfortable. So, we start a beginning before and ending has had proper time to take its course. -
-
Now maybe you can see, how I saw these things similar. It boils down to choice. Can we sit in our shit? Not too long, just enough to process. Essentially, really completing something could change the karmic action of the very behavior we are running from? Possibly. Questions to ask? Have I ran before like this? Has this very situation repeated itself? Do I want to see myself here again? -
-
Just shit sitting over here. Ya know, cuz it’s Saturday. Let’s par-tay. -

I think I may have had every feeling pulsate inside of me over the past 24 hours. I am not one that is used to having “feelings” I am learning...-
-
Until now, I am finding ways to say what I want to say. Mostly it’s the honesty to myself. In recovery we start to face what it’s like to actually feel. After a good amount of time of being spent numb. -
-
Things that happened over the past 24 hours -
-
🌑 I was the crazy person at the stop light screaming as loud as I could jerking the steering wheel.-
🌘 I felt an overwhelming sensation of love stimulated by electrical vibrations.-
🌗 I sang my heart out with the windows down driving through Venice this morning.-
🌔 I held my head low, fighting back tears in target. -
🌕 I drank a Virgin Mary and angrily ate my the celery as I bitched to my lovely friend who related. -
🌖 I was short tempered with my mom, which reminded me of being a teenaged girl.( I’m sorry mom.)-
🌓 I ran to help an old woman who tripped over the curb by my house, I forgot my car was running and I didn’t pull the e-brake up, so it rolled into the street. But nothing else mattered. She laughed with me. -
🌒 I eventually did cry, a few times... some from laughs, some from fear and sorrow. -
-
I could be grumpy, for learning how to navigate through life can get muddy. But at the moment I am not. Somewhere through these 24 hours I found a the smallest of reservoirs that held the strength to capture the idea of perspective.-
-
I may feel suffering, sorrow, happiness, joy, love, loss.-
-
I may want freedom, clarity, wisdom, will. But the latter choice, can be found in the first statement,-
-
it’s all in the perspective we keep.-

Currently sitting up on the top of a high rise watching the remanence of the sunset here in Denver. -
-
Over the past weekend teaching in Austin, I was speaking in the end of Savasana about Santosha, one of the Niyamas. The first part of this word means “Entirely” the second, means “Contentment” Some say, the idea of being content, is not an action of “to be content” rather, looking at it from the perspective, that the action is to make room for “contentment to be” in one’s life. -
-
The past two months, I have been praying on clarity, looking for signs, planting seeds in my sits in meditation. I find myself sighing deep, as I look around for the answers. It was odd to me that since that savasana, those words, that idea, continued to circulate within my brain. I wasn’t making room for clarity. My mind and body have felt heavy. I thought my practice had suffered. But I see now, that it was simply telling me what I was looking for. -
-
To dump the shit. -
-
Instead of seeking, make room. -
-
It’s really simple actually, we see it every time we clean our closet out. Some how, we have so much shit to get rid of. -
-
The rambles of my mind, the journey of this practice and how I am learning to dump shit.-

Sleepy but so fulfilled after teaching all weekend here in Houston. Tomorrow, we head to Austin and teach at @sukhayogaaustin this week, if you’re around town and want to practice with @casa_colibri , come!!! I believe there are still spots!-
-
On a side note, I’m super cozy... feeling all the feels. So, I’m planning to nestle up with a program on Netflix and settle in. -
-
Loving you all ❤️-

Today I started packing, heading back out on a little mini tour teaching the yoga with @casa_colibri -
-
I can’t believe it’s been 5 weeks since we lead our Yoga teacher training. 🙀-
-
I dug deep in these 5 weeks home. Today, as I sat in my back yard, I stripped my clothes off. I set my meditation timer for 30 minutes. And somehow, I just never heard the timer. Usually, it jolts me right out. Which I am not to fond of btw. I realized my skin was not being kissed by the sun any longer which brought me to. My inner self said my prayers and I bowed in thanks. The sit, turned into almost 90 minutes. Time... it’s such a funny thing. -
-
Somewhere in the time though, the cloud that has been over me, looming... lifted a bit and I found my naked self in peace. -
-
So grateful for these days, grateful that I have had the courage to ask the tough questions and willing to find the answers. -

If I know nothing else, I know that if I continue to move, I will figure it all out. -
-
Life, it’s interesting, the playing field. It’s like painting a painting half way through and realizing that you don’t have anymore white.-
-
The idea in which we once had, now needs to change. Change, transitions, all have a end-middle confusing AF area-followed by a new beginning. Due to panic that change brings and the way we in society have adapted to change, it’s often we mix that order up. Like we would start something new before we ended something else. This throws off the natural cycle. But who likes sitting in the shit? I see why we have done this. It sucks.-
-
You see, if we don’t sit in it, allow it to pass through us, the cycle of our behavior will keep repeating itself. The very thing we are running from will come again on the next round. -
-
So this time around, I told myself, feel it all. Every single feeling, as deep and as much as I can possibly bear. Time heals and the answer will come. -
-
Just keep moving and finding the breath when you can. -

Nothing to fancy here, just playing area with the puff pants. I had some ideas but not much strength left after today.-
-
I didn’t really feel like posting this but honestly my practice has been training at the studio and my home practice has been a lot of introspection and meditation lately. Which really isn’t something to film. I’m honestly so happy that this shift happened. Meditation was always something I did at the end of practice but these days I come home and crave it more then the actual asana. It’s been two months now sitting everyday, sometimes twice a day. I’ve struggled in my Asana with breath lately, I have always said it in my intensives, the breath is everything. It moves us. It’s been a struggle to feel a disconnect to my breath, moving has been such a challenge. -
-
My head is heavy, filled with thoughts that aren’t making much sense at the moment. But this is the journey and I really wouldn’t have it any other way. -
-
The breathe will be back... until then, I’ll keep telling myself “I breath in - I breath out.”-

Total #weekendvibes over here. We’ve had a marine layer for a week and the sun is finally out, yep #forthewin -
-
I needed this flow so badly 🧚🏼‍♀️ I was dreaming about this Halasana - Chakrasana (plow- roll over to down dog- lower back to plow) and back through to L sit press, last night so, naturally I gave it a go... (Please note, this is not a tutorial!!!! it is an advanced flow and I’ve been practicing a very, very long time😘) -
-
On another note, I topped it off my fun afternoon, painting a bit on the one above the mirror. I gotta keep it up high or Rufus’s tail will spread that shit errrwhere. #momlife 😂-
-
For those asking about my diet I posted a bunch of stories... not sure how helpful it will be. 😜I feel everyone’s diet to be unique to them anyways. What works for me might not work for you, and to be honest I’m still figuring mine out. 🙋🏼‍♀️-
