A few questions I get asked regularly :)
Were you born flexible?
No! 🙈 I wasn't athletic at all until about 4 years ago when I started to practice & teach yoga. I couldn't do splits, dancer or any form of arm balance. It's all about the process & I've learned to just go with it. Everyone starts at their own unique place, so don't get worried about what others can do or what you can't, just practice ♥️
A really random one I get alot is if my eye color & lashes are natural? yes both are 🙈 my hair on the other hand unfortunately isn't naturally purple 😜🦄
How old are you, what's your sign? I'm 24 & Virgo 🌱
What do you do besides yoga?
I climb, hike & have a daily yoga practice, aside from that I don't do much else but I do like to climb trees & monkey around when ever given the opportunity 🐒
Do you have online classes, do you teach in the Bay Area, when is your next retreat?
I am currently working on an ebook & website for you all 🤗 which I'm so excited about! I teach privates in the Bay Area, I'll be teaching a Backbend workshop in April in SF 🙏🏽 My next yoga retreat will most likely be in Hawaii mid to late fall :) I'm also open to location suggestions ✨
Do I do photography ?
I am just getting into it more & have always enjoyed it :) you can see more at @photobyriv
🦋 I also wanted to touch on a subject that I feel is necessary in this community & in social media.
I am a regular human 🤓
This is just a window in which people see into others, & most of the time we pull the shades closed when things get hard. A lot of people share only what they're proud of or are inspired by, which I think sparks a ripple effect of positivity. But I also see value & connection in being authentic & real. That sometimes life hits you hard. In order to grow & learn from certain things we need support, and to be able to relate to others moving through similar struggles. I try to be as open as I feel comfortable & share what I'm moving through, happy or sad. Just remember that we all have our own struggle and that we can all improve and help one another by remembering just that and being there for eachother. ✊🏽♥️
Oh & if you ever wondered if I love you, the answer is
YES 💗 #chooselove
