Take time to rest. Replenish your reserves so you're not running on empty. โœจ

Sometimes, it can be as simple as closing your eyes & counting down 10 breaths, other times it means communing with Nature and unplugging from social media for a while. ๐ŸŒฑ

All I know is that the quiet moments fuel my soul so I can be more compassionate, patient, gentle, forgiving, strong, radiant & resilient. .

The slow & steady path of discovery. Turn over a rock here, discover a hidden cave there. There's so much more to dig up & explore. Our internal terrain is endless. โœจ๐Ÿ’—โœŒ๐Ÿผ๏ธ

Savasana between the asanas gives you space to absorb the postural medicine & to notice the unique essence of each pose and its release. .

Backbends energize, reorganize & regenerate your body, keeping you open and flexible in a physical, mental & emotional sense. Love your spine. ๐Ÿ’—โœŒ๐Ÿผ๏ธ

Yoga is not about handstands or touching your toes. And it's also all about handstands and touching your toes, depending on your perspective. For the longest time, I thought I was supposed to "achieve" something in my poses. Like no matter how many hours of yoga asana I did, I wanted to go deeper. I wanted to prove that I could do something positive with my life by cleaning out the old ways of thinking & connecting my body to my mind.
.
.

Growing up without incentive to be healthy and always having my head buried in a book was my form of escapism from the present moment and from my body (which I hated). Yoga has given me the greatest gifts I could have ever asked for: the ability to be present and falling in love my body.
.
.

There's a beauty and a lightness in self-acceptance. There's also beauty in willpower. Yoga has taught me that I fluctuate day to day, and that no two practices are ever the same. One day I couldn't touch my toes, and then one day I could. Was I any happier or more fulfilled? In some ways, yes. I am grateful for giving myself purpose, for sticking with something long enough to actually feel a shift of consciousness and see results of years on my mat. In other ways, I still wasn't satisfied. It's funny how our nature is to always want more. The one piece of knowledge that can never be overused is this: just keep showing up. And when you don't show up, don't make excuses. Forgive yourself. Move on. And then Just show up again and a#gain until it becomes habit. Once it is habit, it becomes your lifestyle, your medicine, your self-love. .
.
.
Keep showing up for your Self, y'all. Be patient, be compassionate, be determined and get to know your Self. Take care of this little piece of earth that is your body. ๐ŸŒŽ

Release the need to be a version of perfect that is separate from what you see yourself as right now. .

The sways, the wobbles, the giggles & the challenges are all an expression of your playful, creative & determined journey! .

A little outdoor handstand love (wobbles & all) keeps me feeling young and content with the present moment. Moving from the heart without expectation & embracing all the little "imperfections" that my mind creates each time I observe my practice from the outside in. Poses are cool, but self-love & acceptance are the true gems I receive from yoga asana. ๐Ÿ’— .

Looking like a majestic water wolf after her morning dip in the lake. Chasing ducklings, winding through the reeds & barking at her reflection in the water. ๐ŸŒฑ #puppy life .

Proud dog mom. This little one is learning so fast! She's also growing quickly. Her ears are starting to perk up and she can't keep up with her long legs! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’—
