A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset πŸ’™
Missing these cotton candy skies and beautiful shades of Mykonos blue... but I had fun looking back at all the pics while writing the latest post on my blog! Read more about my time in Greece - including what I did in Mykonos, and two of my favorite spots in Santorini - now up on the blog... (link in my bio) πŸ‡¬πŸ‡·

This grounding flow is exactly what my body is craving right now. ❀️ A couple of days ago I talked about how common it is to experience some extra nervous energy during this time of year. The best way to to counteract that is by incorporating a few extra grounding poses into your practice. It will help you feel noticeably more rooted and centered. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
This flow has a few of my favorites:
- Goddess pose (or any kind of squat, such as Malasana)
- Pyramid pose (or your favorite forward fold variation)
- Extended side angle
- Trikonasana
- Downward facing dog
- Child's pose (always a good idea 😊)
Imagine drawing energy up from your feet as you root down into the earth. πŸ‘£
Happy practicing! Use the hashtag below if you give these poses a try and I'll share some of your posts on my stories! 😍

My favorite part about this online community will always be getting to know the humans behind these squares. πŸ¦‹
Yesterday was a magical morning with some of the loveliest people - all the yoga, breakfast, and laughs with @jessicaolie @gypsetgoddess @samuelianrosen and @sfreneenyc (who snapped these pics!) while we kinda froze our butts off πŸ’™

'In an age of speed,
I began to think,
nothing could be more
invigorating than going slow.
In an age of distraction, nothing
could feel more luxurious
than paying attention.
And in an age of constant
movement, nothing is more
urgent than sitting still.'
~Pico Iyer
ps. If you want to know why I'm practicing extra forward folds this week, check out my previous post πŸ‚

Has anyone else been feeling a little uneasy lately? It's pretty common to experience some extra 'nervous' energy during this time of year. πŸ™πŸΌ The change in seasons can leave us craving more calm. Try adding a few extra grounding postures, such as forward folds into your practice. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Leave me a comment below if you'd like me to put together some more of my favorite grounding poses that you can incorporate into your fall routine! 😍❀️🍁

'some will see the the
beauty on the outside
of you and others will
judge it. grade it.
give it a number.
hold onto those who
see the beauty on
the inside of you.'
~ @jmstormquotes

blow away your worries.
let the wind write
new stories on your skin.
close your eyes and
taste the stardust
in your veins.
(isn't it spicy?)
undress your hopes,
rewind your dreams,
remember the ancient
language your forgot.
above all,
understand that you are
made of wild things.

Nothing fancy today, just sharing what a typical warm-up looks like for me (face-licks, and all 😜❀️🐢)
There were a few question on my video from last week about the first move I'm doing here - these spinal rolls are one of my favorite ways to begin warming up the back. The articulation helps to wake up the core and spine, and creates a healthy awareness between the two. ❀️
Half-camel is another great heart opener. Remember you can start out with the toes tucked, and then untuck them once until you feel more open. πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
Wheel pose with straight legs is really helpful for learning to distribute the backbend more into the upper back (very important for protecting the lumbar). The leg engagement allows you to push the heart forward - imagine reaching your chest further through your arms while lifting the belly upward. I like to start out by straightening one leg at a time, and then straightening both legs, if I don't get interrupted by someone begging for belly rubs somewhere in between (ahem, Winnie). 🐢
If you want to see more moves that will help you access deeper backbends, scroll back to some of my 'wall-yoga' videos.
Happy practicing! 😍

You know that little voice in the back of your head telling you that you CAN? Listen to it. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
It takes just as much energy to feed your negative thoughts as it does your positive ones... start choosing the voice that knows you CAN do whatever you set your mind to. ❀️

When a yogi asks for a heart-to-heart, you may want to question exactly what she has in mind first... πŸ˜‚
Haha, twinning and heart-to-heart-ing with @tditty2 in tropical places ❀️🌴
Happy Monday, loves! 😍

All salty and sandy and happier than ever to be back together with two of my sisters ❀️
I know we are only a few hours away by plane, but so often I wish we all lived closer to one another. These last few days in Florida have been filled with so much time together, I've been savoring every minute of it. 😍
