#MantraMonday: ❤️ Loving Kindness : "Every situation is either an expression of Love or a call for it." They say the universe gives you what you need, it's just a matter of being open to receive it. ✨ I came across this quote recently, and it was a great reminder that in any situation each of us has the power to make that circumstance more loving - through a kind gesture, a compassionate action, an loving approach - even when, and especially when, it may not necessarily be extended towards us. I am so thankful for the people in my life that have shown me love, support, their kindness- thank you for keeping my heart full of loving kindness and inspiration to share with others 😊🙏

Hi Yogis! Reminder to come kick off your 4th of July with a special Red, White & Blue 🇺🇸Independence Day Yoga class with me tomorrow 9am at @coastfitnesssouthbay ! See you tomorrow on your mat! 😊🙏😘

"Trust". Yoga has given me so much, including really learning to trust. To
Trust in the practice; to Trust in myself to make the right decisions for me; to Trust in my strength & wisdom; to Trust my ❤️and to Trust enough to let down walls and be vulnerable and open. This pose (Sirsasana) always reminds me of this because the first time I attempted it in the middle of the room I fell onto my back and for a long time after was scared to fall again. And now my headstand my not be perfect but I trust myself enough to feel what's right & how far to go in the moment. 😊
I hope to share with my students the inspiration, trust, strength that this practice has given me. 🙏✨🙏✨🙏
