I've been a bit quite on IG with good reason. Bikram yoga everyday is kicking my ass! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Just finished day 65 of 100; which I've now changed to 109, doing the 108 days +1 to honour the inner guru. Some of you may know the relevance of 108, for those who don't, it's considered in the Vedas as the number of wholeness, spiritual completion and much more, which is why many prayer malas are 108 beads. Bikram is now truly part of my daily prayer of devotion to honour this body, the temple of my soul.

The last few weeks have been crazy intense! My body is releasing an ancient trauma and that comes with its own daily challenges. At times it's super painful physically. I'm amazed by my body's ability to still show up daily despite the experience of pain. I'm loving it all as it's all serving my expansion.
By the way, I don't double up on classes on one day to take a day off, I actually show up every single day. I think that's the key, total system reboot. As a daily asana practice was never my thing till 65 days ago, that itself is intense.
What started out as just wanting to be more consistent with my asana practice is turning into so much more. Another beautiful reminder- the divine plan is always perfect. Just show up! Even when it's hard, show up. Keep showing up. This is how we transcend our limitations. In this situation, it's helping me transcend some physical limitations.

Attended a beautiful ceremony to purify the land of a friend today. Magical event surrounded by open hearted people. Grateful always to witness and support how the local customs honour the land and all beings.
I accidentally showed up without the proper attire as I was going from my workout and was graciously loaned an outfit. Somehow it just seem to worked out. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ™ A pure heart is sometimes all it takes.

'One Kiss' is all it takes.... this song is stuck in my head since hearing it this morning in my pilates class. Copy & Paste in YouTube to hear the song. https://youtu.be/VWIHxYvo6dk
What if you sang this song to yourself. DO it... play it on YouTube, dance in front of your mirror (you all have one) and ...KISS yourself and FALL in LOVE with yourself. Happy Monday. xo :-)
-I have a feeling we'll be dancing to this song at the retreat. Link in the bio. Not your typical retreat... check it out. We'll dance our way into a whole new way of being. It's going to be fun!! #mypursuitofpeace #bookstagram #transformationalspeaker #transformationretreats #awakening #spiritualretreat #joinme #linkinbio #expandconsciousness #newauthor #awakening #surrender #love #peace #joy #fun #happy #travel #dance #besilly #loveyourself #now #yes #bali #retreats #startnow #commitment #letsgo

Today was day 50 of my 100 days of #bikramyoga everyday personal pledge to myself. Someone walked up to me post class 2 days ago and shared that she enjoyed practicing next to me and said 'you are so bendy' - my response 'not really, that's all the transformation within the last 50 days'. I explained how I'm still super stiff doing certain asanas that are not part of the Bikram flow. With that said, it was a beautiful reflection of what is possible within a short period of relentless commitment! I show up regardless of rain, shine, pain or social engagements that could be way more fun.
Bikram is now my medicine and my moving prayer to honour my physical body.
Grateful to Mony the founder of the @ubudyogacentre for bringing Bikram yoga to Indonesia in 2004! Her commitment & daily practice with us and sometimes corrections post class has made a huge difference! Thank you Mony! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™

We all have a TRUST FUND. Place your trust in the divine which you are a part of, that is within you. Take inspired action as guided by your soul, intuition, love. Trust that all the funds you need will appear in the form that is best for your experience here on earth. Some have falsely assumed that I must have a trust fund to have left my old life without a real plan. For the record, I donโ€™t. The beauty of surrender is that you begin to align to divine will and trust that there is a beautiful plan for your life. Sometimes we experience difficulties (Iโ€™ve had my share) but these are all to support the experience that you are having. The polarities create the fullness of the experience. โ€จTrust divine timing. Trust that the universe is truly conspiring to make your experience AWESOME! Trust that you will be given everything you need, but maybe not in the way you expect.
TRUST is key to our expansion and evolution. It is all going to be okay. Above all, trust yourself to know, feel and honour the guidance from within, coming from love. โ€จLots of LOVE, Casi

Truly excited to welcome all who are called to attend this retreat!

Today I fell from grace, it's been an intense week and my words were not impeccable.
Sharing this as it can happen to anyone of us for any number of reasons.
The awareness came quickly, I remembered this too is part of the experience, forgave myself, released the frequency and moved on, while sending love and gratitude to all involved for the divine perfection in any situation.
Just a loving reminder to myself and all of us to remember Don Miguel Ruiz's Four Agreements.
As we awaken and learn a new way to be, old patterns may pop up once in a while; acknowledge them without shame or guilt. The more we bring the shadows to the surface, the easier it becomes to re-ground in grace, compassion, humility and love.
Today's experience was a beautiful reminder of this for myself.

For anyone following my stray cat that adopted me story ... here's a quick update. Zen Tripod is officially no longer a stray cat. He's happy and settled at home, been to the vet several times, sterilized, vaccinated and in perfect health. He is absolutely adorable; like a true fur mom, I'm biased, most awesome cat in the world. ๐Ÿ˜‚
He's typically playful in the early morning hours starting at 6am; it's cute how he gets me up to feed him, and play with him.
Love this little cutie... in awe and grateful that he showed up in my garden one day and decided to call it home.
I was never a cat person, but it was love at first sight with this furry 3 legged guy with a crooked tail. So grateful for all his love and affection.
The divine works in mysterious ways - everything that is for you will find its way to you.

A day on the beach post back-to-back yoga classes this morning. Simple pleasures. I remind myself to never take this period of my life for granted. This zen period is what I prayed to the divine within for when I worked crazy hours in the corporate world. Enjoying this moment as I'm certain I'll be a bit busier over the next year as I re-emerge from my spiritual/awakening sabbatical.
Btw- checkout my upcoming retreat... link in the bio ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™ #mypursuitofpeace #bookstagram #instagram #newauthor #beach #amazing #beautiful #zen #love #peace #joy #happy #excited #rebirth #awakening #spiritual #togetherwerise #bali #baliretreat #joinme #retreat #transformation #expand #consciousness #gratitude #๐Ÿ™ #beachday #happygirl #divinewithin #innerguru

30 days of #bikramyoga everyday challenge is done!! I started this challenge to get back into a regular asana practice, to develop a discipline of showing up to something everyday as I come out of my 6+ years of awakening incubation and prepare for the upcoming retreat (link in the bio) and other exciting stuff. The surprise ....now I'm hooked because of how amazing my body is starting to feel! Still challenged through many poses but the improvements within 30 days are dramatic; the bonus - my clothes fit better! ๐Ÿ’›Super motivated to turn this into an automatic habit for life. So... will keep going till I get to 100 days of Bikram everyday! ๐Ÿ˜

Who wants to join me?
Heart over matter, put your heart into it, the mind will follow and the body will adapt. This is the holy trinity of body, mind, spirit alignment.

Grateful to everyone at @ubudyogacentre
