It’s crazy how quickly things can happen. For the past few years @samseesworld and I have dreamt about opening a donation based yoga studio. Now that we both have homes in Boulder everything has fallen into place, and @bodhimovement Boulder is becoming a reality 😍😱 we just signed our lease and couldn’t be more excited to share the space with you all very soon!! Time to pick out floors and decor 😍😇

Silence the noise. The only person who truly knows if you should keep trying or not, is you. ❤️ I’ve been wanting to recreate this shape I saw @tditty2 make for a few years now, and I’m so grateful I had @axialcreative_ to capture it!

Arm balances and transitions have been the part of my practice that have come back the slowest after injuring my wrist. Usually I save my wrist for handstands because I enjoy them more (probably because they are less humbling 😆) but I’m grateful to be adding more transitions back in!
So here is my joyfully sloppy rendition of this transition from the Rocket Yoga sequence ❤️

I truly used to believe that the most significant progress was physical. At the beginning of my fitness journey it was all about achieving a goal weight. Eventually this morphed into an obsession with my yoga practice, seeking depth in the physical postures as if that was the only thing to strive for. After a few injuries and many moments of realization, I am proud to say I am not the most flexible that I have ever been. Because it’s no longer my goal. I can say with confidence now that the most important progress isn’t physical at all. So how is progress measured, then? I’m still figuring it out, and I suppose it is constantly shifting. But I do know that part of it is looking at this photo and not caring that my top leg isn’t perfectly straight, that I’m no longer my “goal weight” yet I’m not trying to lose weight to get there, and that I actually love myself enough to be there for other people as a listener and voice of compassion (on a good day 😆). 📷 @axialcreative_

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a selfie... so I figured I’d sneak this one in before my tan fades 😂🙈🤷‍♀️

These days being strong simply means doubting myself less. ❤️ working on this baby lift inspired by @samseesworld
