We must hold a space of love and respect when looking into ourselves.
We must practice the same honest and gentle approach when looking into others as we look inward.
After all, we are mirrors reflecting divine light. Why not choose to let it shine? ✨

Thank you to the moon and back for the magic πŸ™ˆπŸ™πŸ½πŸŒˆ

Just because you're the only who sees the corners of your mind doesn't mean others haven't dreamt the same dreams or felt the same magic. Live your dreams, speak your truths and lead with your heart to insight a ripple effect to those in your life. Be the cause of action towards dreams evolving into reality.

🌸 I was going through my dms today and opened one from a girl who lives in Iran, explaining how she isn't able to learn yoga in her country and asking if I could help her in any way. This issue has crossed my mind before, about many things not only the ability to practice yoga. It's not something that is in my every day thoughts though because I live where I am able to practice freely, teach, share and experience the benefits that yoga has brought into my life. Sometimes loosing sight of the bigger picture that this has reminded me of. To not take for granted the things I have and the fact that I can get on my mat any time of the day.
This message really put into perspective the things that are important and just how many of us are lucky that we live in places which allow us to practice what ever we want.
Currently writing out flow descriptions and tips for postures to practice for this lovely girl who reached out to me 😌
Still feeling a bit taken aback at the fact that this and many other issues go on every day and doing my best to help, inspire and teach in the ways that I can. ✨ #bethechange

πŸ’• This practice is of play, patience, progression.
Not perfection.
Some days it comes, some days it goes but every time you fall you get right back up and try again πŸ™ƒ
Practice and all is coming

Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.
BrenΓ© Brown

Being vulnerable can feel scary when it's new for you, but by opening your heart and taking that risk you and the world around us will be better for it. In a world where many are afraid to open up- be the example, let love guide you not fear.
Oh, and have a happy happy happy earth day beautiful loves! Go out and explore the beautiful nature that surrounds us πŸ’š

✨ Approach each challenge with joy and excitement and see how it transforms. Everything is connected, your thoughts and feelings can either enhance your experience or hold you back. 🌸

Love is everywhere.
Most importantly, love resides and starts within each of us.

Two years ago I was hosting my first retreat in Kauai with my beautiful friend @jadealectra πŸ’•
I was just starting to spread my wings, test the waters and it also marks the start of all the colors in my hair πŸ™ˆ
When I look at this photo I remember and can see how much I've changed physically and emotionally. Unsure of how to love myself, and quite frankly I didn't in some ways, I was so insecure in my own skin and didn't even leave this photo posted. I got stuck on the the way this looked and at the time didn't know how to appreciate the journey I was on and have patience while growing. I got stuck on my envisioned goal and didn't see how amazing what I was already capable of was.
Now when I look at this photo I remember how beautiful and empowering this felt, even if I couldn't see it come through in the photograph as I wanted it to. I see a seedling that was planed there in Kauai, an awakening of what it self acceptance truly means πŸ’• not accepting that I'd never like my nose, or that I have nubs for breasts (which was my mindset at the time) but truly accepting my self and learning to love all that I am.
The point is -
Love yourself always. Your future self, past self & your present self πŸ™πŸ½
When you're moving through something, when you can't go as deep or hold as long, love yourself when you're experiencing growing pains, when you've started a new chapter with new possibilities.
Love love love πŸ’• Always

✨ to understand depth, just observe her. She feels everything so deep that sometimes she doesn't know how to speak; she feels it so deep that it can be paralyzing, it can cause her to be 'too' much at times, but she'd rather feel it all and be alive versus any other option.

Know this:
You are never too much πŸ’šπŸŒ± This quote really struck me a while back. I feel it often and remind myself of this when I find myself trying to shrink for others or feel too weird to be myself.
Being anything other than yourself would be a disservice to the world. Be you. Always.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
