This human. 😍 @steel_pony is my everything. He reflects both my strengths and my weaknesses and does it so tenderly. Today is his BIRTHDAY. Today I celebrate him. Honestly though I started last night and try to celebrate him daily. Why wait for a holiday to make the most important person in you life feel loved? Mike, you are such an inspiring person. You are constantly pushing yourself and your business to be better. You spend time reflecting to help you grow. Your kindness radiates through your actions. Our community respects and loves you. I already told you today but I admire your ability to create change and evolve. You make it look easy although I know it's not. I am a better person having you in my life. As we embark on this new chapter of our life together as parents I could not be more excited. Not because I think it'll be easy (I'm not delusional - ok a little), but mainly because we get to do it together. πŸ‘« I'm slightly concerned about where you think the baby is growing. Scroll to the last photo to find out why... πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ€£ Happy Birthday Mikey!! I love you big time, long time, hard time. Best buds for life. ❀️

Amazed. Honored. Blessed. Throughout this pregnancy my physical practice has shifted. I’ve been doing far less inversions, way more strength/stability work and restorative practices (meditation and restorative are my jam). It has felt fantastic to slow down, make shifts and create space. After filming a prenatal series for the past three days I've felt great physically and emotionally. I decided to see how hollowback would feel. It had been awhile since I last tried the pose and it felt great. Backbends have not been my friend during this pregnancy, so updog, wheel, camel have been no-go’s. My upper back has not been getting any love, which is fine. Since I’m moving into my third trimester I’m going to stop inverting soon. What did you guys do during your pregnancy? Invert or not? What I find most fascinating about pregnancy is that what works for some doesn't for others. The beauty behind it all is that we all make the best decisions we can with the knowledge we have and trust in our intuition. As I started this post I'll end it the same way I couldn't be feeling more blessed, honored and amazed. #26weekspregnant #pregnancy #pregnantyoga Wearing: @aloyoga.

This past weekend was so good for my soul. Being home in Seattle always feels right, but this one was extra special because I got to spend the weekend with the love of my life and my longest friends. Most of us in the second picture have been friends since 1996. It was amazing to reflect back on growing up together wearing JNCO jeans and ordering all our clothes from Delia's, those awkward high school years (mainly just for me), visiting each other and getting in trouble during university and now blossoming in our thirties. I am externally grateful for these women. At a young age I learned how to build strong relationships with other women. For that I will always be grateful. They are more like sisters than friends. It's an honor for Mike to get to know the people I grew up with because they helped shape me into who I am today and for them to get to know the man who loves me for the true me better. πŸ’™ FR for life!! Love you @elle2thedub @coco1616 @beedubbee @lizard212 @dirtybirdcbv @icarly4.

Throwback to when I was 10 weeks pregnant in Vegas, yet my boobs had fully developed and I felt super "bloated." This version is bloated is laughable to me now. I can't wait to celebrate @elle2thedub getting married tomorrow! I can't believe we've been friends for over 20 years.

Nobody warned me that I'd love being pregnant. Honestly though how could they?! As my body continues to soften, so does my heart. I feel less gripping around things that really don't matter to me: petty fights, performance of poses, etc. Although my practice is pretty gentle these days I've never felt more empowered in my body. I feel sexier than I ever have in my 33 years of existence. My time and energy is being spent in areas of my life that I feel have deep purpose and fill my passion tank. We often wait for reasons in our life to take action, let me tell you pregnancy has been a big one for me, but I encourage you to live your life to the fullest now. Why wait?! PS: this doesn't mean fill it with noise, busyness and clutter. Soften, surrender and settle into the truest version of you. πŸ’™ Man oh man am I grateful for @aloyoga's high-waisted leggings. They're so forgiving on this ever expanding belly. #25weekspregnant #pregnantyoga #pregnancy #yoga

I loved this black sand beach in Iceland. Here's a peak into my recent handstand practice. These days it's getting harder and harder to connect to my lower abdomen as you could probably imagine why... Headstand and forearm balance still feel fine but handstand feels like when I was first learning again. As you can witness in the second video I am flopping all over the place. C'est la vie! I've surprisingly had no problem surrendering to the shifts in my practice and body. It feels like such an honor to be carrying this little soul that I'd happily give up all the poses if needed. That being said I'm so grateful that I've felt great physically throughout my pregnancy. I know many women this isn't the case. Yoga, mainly stretching, doesn't feel the best. Gentle flows and movements feel rejuvenating. Strength training makes me feel empowered and strong. Walking has become a huge priority. It doesn't take much to get my heart rate elevated these days, but I keep at it. Consistency is key. I just asked on my Instastory what has been women's favorite mantra during pregnancy and labor! I'd love to hear from you. πŸ’™

This man. This life. I love all adventures we go on together. Both the ones where we are blissfully happy and the rougher waters. I look forward to embracing the challenges of parenthood because we get to face them together. Thanks for being my best bud and teammate. I love you @steel_pony. Cheers to a wild year to come. πŸ’πŸ‘ΆπŸ»β€οΈ

I'm back home in Red Deer which means I return to my routine and all these amazing @steel_pony veggies. My trip to Iceland was by far one of the top three trips I've ever been on. The ironic part of the trip is that it was my first time I've ever felt homesick. Marrying Mike and moving to Alberta has been one of the greatest adventures I've ever been on. Living in Alberta is the first time I've ever not lived on the coast near large amounts of water. It was something I was a bit concerned about when moving, but have been pleasantly surprised and overwhelmed by the vast amount of natural beauty this province has to offer. Not to mention I was moving somewhere where I had no friends or family near by. It's not to say I haven't had my struggles with the transition. When I want to shoulder (besides Mike's) to lean on it has to be done on the phone. I'm slowly but surely building my own community here both friendships and yoga, but it has taken time. Regardless of my struggles this city has become my home. I look forward to coming home every trip. I've got a short time here before I head to my hometown, Seattle, for a week! Just remember that sometimes the biggest chances you take have the highest payoffs. Happy Wednesday!!

This trip couldn't have come at a better time in my pregnancy. At almost 24 weeks pregnant I've felt fortunate to have had an extremely enjoyable pregnancy thus far. I am slowly but surely getting bigger and bigger a few more weeks and I doubt I could have done half the things I did on this trip. I hiked a glacier, walked 12k most days, continued to explore my modified yoga practice and played in all the hot springs (not to worry I didn't get in the hot ones). I spent time connecting with the nature in this beautiful country, time meeting and creating friendships with new people, and time alone with myself and my blossoming bud. We've decided on this trip to unofficially name the baby Thor(a) due to my husband's love of superheroes and our amazing Icelandic driver for the past 9 days. Thank you @janetstoneyoga for holding space along this journey and @connie.engel for organizing the trip and making sure things ran smoothly. This trip is one that I will surely never forget. Although my Instastory is about to get more boring as my trip comes to an end I have many more pictures to share. πŸ˜„ Outfit: @aloyoga. Photographer: @shauna_harrison.

Tomorrow is my last day full day in Iceland. As expected on this trip I made new friends, saw landscapes I've only seen in movies, and fell in love with another place in the world. I haven't stopped pinching myself over the past nine days. It all feels so surreal. This trip has reminded me of how much I love yoga retreats. The exploration of a new destination meanwhile bonding with strangers who often become lifelong friends. Next year my goal is to lead 2 long weekend retreats (one yoga & wine retreat and one yoga & hiking retreat) and 1 week long yoga retreat. I have to begin planning these trips soon. Preferably before December when the baby comes. πŸ‘ΆπŸ» Any destination requests? πŸ’™ Wearing @aloyoga's new legion blue leggings.

Love really is all around. ❀️ This photo looks like it is filtered B&W but in reality I'm just at a black sand beach in Iceland. Each day that passes I'm convinced I need to lead a retreat here and come back! Next stop is a glacier hike. Wish me luck!

As cheesy as it is - I feel like a bird in paradise here. Outfit: @aloyoga. Photographer: @shauna_harrison.
