Strong back, open heart. The more planted I am the deeper I can bend. On the mat, watch how much your body can awaken into deeper more open expressions when you engage your legs, rooting down. It’s magic. It’s blooming. Off the mat, watch how much your heart can be fearless through staying rooted in who you are. Love who you are. 🌿 #spilledink #onebreathatatime #sanantonioyoga #satxbloggers #sanantonioblogger #210yogis #yogaforhealing #joblove #mindfulmama

FULL POEM💫 “i wish i knew the stories and the language of their pain
the path it took and how it changed our name
the valleys it took to build the mountains we are
a well within us, buried deep down far.

I want to uncover the quiet moments they had under the moon
what drove their choices
to do what they do
I want to eat from the hands
they took refuge in
the courage it took to begin again
i want to become the breath that survived the rain
with gentle intensity,
their will maintained.

I am over the mountain.
I am their someday.
I am petals born from blood.
I am petals born from hate.
I am ritual, prayer, a riot awake
full body stretch
unable to break
power, knowing and all the above
is derived from my
ARMENIAN blood.” Today we remember the #armeniangenocide and honor a community of strength. And how my own family has been touched by this atrocity in history. As my grandmother says, “never forget the Armenians.” 🌿 another side thought. My family says I get my love for poetry from my grandpa, as he used to use his lunch breaks at work to write poetry in Armenian- that of which we are still trying to translate. Thankful to come from a bloodline of resilience, expression and beauty. ❤️🇦🇲 #armenia #armenians #spilledink #poetrycommunity #poem #yogaforhealing #sanantonioblogger #sanantonio #satxbloggers #onebreathatatime

Lately I’ve had such beautiful and meaningful conversations on the word trust. From sixth chakra perspective it begins with patterns of reliability, from a Brene Brown feel I love her concept on “vault” and from the Maya Angelou thought of how can I trust you if you say you love me when you cannot even love yourself. Trust is built on so many pillars. You have to earn the right. You have to be standing in the arena with me. I am not interested in your feedback unless you have shown up, braved, and built homes of trust, love and chance. If your feet have walked the paths paved by your promises and word. #satxbloggers #onebreathatatime #joblove #yogaforhealing #sanantonioyoga #sanantonioblogger #selflove #spilledink

Our final week of #completemedcleanse 🌿 grounds is into community. Food is at the heart of community and we tend to gather around tables for connection. I had planned on spending the week showcasing my favorite local places with amazing plant based meal options but today I want to dedicate to all of you. So many had reached out to connect, share their plant based eating journeys and also bring me light, suggestions and empowerment when it was difficult. I just so appreciate the way you’ve shown up. And special gratitude to @sacomplete 🌿✨ #satxbloggers #onebreathatatime #joblove #militaryspouse #yogaforhealing #plantbased #sanantonioyoga #sanantonioblogger

One truth that has been so clear on my soul is this, God does not call the qualified. God qualifies the called. 🖤 #spilledink #onebreathatatime #sanantonioblogger #joblove #satxbloggers #sanantonioyoga #yogaforhealing #210yogis #mindfulmama

Paintbrushes of language. Dripping, drying into your soul. 🌿✨ here’s to shared meaning and communion. Cozy up with me at the @thehotelemma library Friday afternoon for shared vulnerability, art and connection. #spilledink #onebreathatatime #sanantonioblogger #sanantoniopoetry #satxbloggers #yogaforhealing #sanantonioyoga #joblove

It’s Monday and my heart is so full!! I will be finalizing the date for our @milmindbody volunteers meeting soon so DM or email me for volunteer interest. Vogel Resiliency studio opening date is May 10th🌿✨ also- still rocking the #completemedcleanse challenge with @sacomplete 🖤 check story for update. This week is themed on soul and this challenge has really brought sacred awareness to the surface for me; on self control, negative feedback loops, all the human things. My body I think is toward the end of intense detox, my skin, my heart. Feeling more clear this week. So funny that pain and discomfort is always part of any equation that takes you to wisdom or knowing yourself really. 💀🌿🙏🏼 we here, we good. 😘🙏🏼 #spilledink #onebreathatatime #sanantonioblogger #sanantonioyoga #satxbloggers #plantbased #yogaforhealing #210yogis

From Deserts to Gardens, this garden for you. 🌿 I’ve learned how paradoxical wisdom is. This is why we pray for discernment. This is why we pray for guidance. This is why, nothing I do is on my own. 🌿 #childofgod #spilledink #poetrymonth #onebreathatatime #sanantonioblogger #sanantoniopoetry #satxbloggers #yogaforhealing #joblove

Save the date 🌿 To those who enjoy my poetry and my sweet friends; join me Friday evening at 4:30pm inside the @thehotelemma library for a From Deserts to Gardens poetry reading. #sanantoniopoetry #spilledink #sanantonioblogger #onebreathatatime #satxbloggers #210yogis #sanantonioyoga #hotelemma #poetrymonth
