Early Wednesday morning the @lululemonsf crew woke up at the crack of dawn for a "fun mile" led by badass human, fellow @lululemon ambassador and @barrysbootcamp instructor, @gabby_denigris! After that sweaty party I lead a sweet seaside sunrise meditation about #breatheitallin - accepting what is, the "good," "bad," and everything in-between..and also the reminder to also breathe it all out, too. So grateful for this community!

Oh Happy Day!

Remember to not become BOUND by memories, plans, expectations and judgments. These things trap us in feedback loops-- they reinforce our ideas of ourselves, others and the world, when usually it would serve us best to drop all of that and start anew by truly listening to our hearts deepest calling. *
I'm often frustrated that folks offer lofty advice or wisdom but don't bring it down to earth and share their experience, so here's mine: For many years I had ambitions to become a serial entrepreneur, start and sell lots of businesses , get filthy rich, and retire by 35 so I could have all the free time in the world to just Be! I reinforced this story and created an identity that seemed to match that idea and path. I went to networking events, conferences, and had so many conversations about things that, ultimately didn't matter--that didn't improve life for those most in need...
*
And at some point I realized the story was just that. It was my ego's fabrication and was not what my heart truly wanted. I WANT to be of service to humans-- to bring light to others, to help people find greater ease in their lives and joy in their hearts. And I'm doing it now. I've found a practice and "career" that carries hearts, bodies and souls gracefully through the ebb and flow of Life. And I also find plenty of free time to Be along the way.
*
So, all of this to say, be willing to toss the current narrative and "life path" that isn't fulfilling and joyful. It's not worth it. We're here for only a short time. May we each have the courage to pivot -- to cast off the bowline and set sail into the unknown, where the possibilities of living in integrity with our sankalpa (souls purpose/longing/calling) is really the only path. Begin again! #yoga

Go on, get upside down! "But what if I fall?" ...."and what if you fly?"

The yoga asana practice continues to be a LIFE practice for me. My attitude in, between and just thinking about certain poses helps me address everything else that life throws in my direction. Am I nervous to invert? Not up for a full backbend? Decide to take child's pose instead of the arm balance? What does the microcosm of the yoga class experience say about the way I get after life? How does this translate into my relationships with others and also with myself?
*
Of course some days and moments are hard, sad or otherwise challenging, while others are like warm (almond) milk and sweet (raw) honey 🍯-- just divine.
*
So I simply watch myself while I practice, I notice what comes up, and what I lean in towards and also away from, most of the time without judgment or expectation.
*
Your homework, if you choose to accept it: use your practice as a mini life lesson. After practice journal about what came up, what was stuck, what lessons came from your time on the mat. Ok? I love you.

Something about riding a motorcycle is deeply meditative for me. There's no zoning out, texting and driving or otherwise being distracted. My full awareness is Here-- on the sound of the engine, the pot holes in the road, the cars that don't see me, the brisk wind across my body. All of it is so enlivening! When I'm not on my bike, I try to bring this same heightened awareness to each step, each human interaction, each breath. May we each step up to the plate of Life more completley and offer better than our best! Have a present, powerful day!

Of course I don't wish anything "bad" for anyone (quite the opposite), but I trust that the most challenging experiences, conversations and fears that we face along the way are our richest opportunities to see most clearly. These tradgedies and heartbreaks make us grow and surrender and let go and begin again, more sober and awake to life...they give us another chance to peel away a few layers of what was, as we slowly become who we are. And it's really a shame that our darkest days are where we grow most... but I believe this is true. We suffer because we forget that it's ALL temporary, and each ending is the start of something new. Ganesha, this plump elephant headed deity, the Lord of new beginnings, reminds us to trust these shifts... to begin again and again. Tabula rasa, clean slate each morning-- each moment if you can. May we remain humble students here at the University of Life.

I strive to be here and now for all that life offers. However, as my friends and family can definitely attest, I fall short of this intention more often than I'd like. Sometimes someone is talking to me and my head is down, tapping on this screen, really off somewhere else in a digital world. So my practice is to return to the "mundane" moments and see their glory and magnificence and beauty! The grocery line or the bus can be a rich, cosmic experience if you tune in.

Thank you for this breath. Thank you for this heart beat.
Thank you for these loves and losses.
Thank you for these smiles and also these tear.
Thank you for the memory of yesterday and the gift of today.
Thank you for these friends and this community.
Thank you for these teachings and teachers.
Thank you for these tastes and smells and sweet touches.
Thank you for the tender song of the heart ... Thank you for this life.
I am ready to begin again.

I've never liked this idea of "finding your passion" -- my dad has always reminded me to do and try (and find joy in) lots of things in life! But the biggest takeaway was to not hold back-- to dream and think and act and love audaciously! Yes, remain humble, but you don't help anyone by remaining small and in your shell. Follow your nose and heart and intuition! We've only got this one life (okay, perhaps thousands)... I intend to offer everything I've got and land in my grave with my hands covered in dirt, my body fully tattooed and achy and my hearts deepest longings contented. Live fully baby! Make this your dream life.
