"Keep going sweet child, this is your journey to take. Isn't it beautiful and chaotic? Isn't it the most heartbreakingly wonderful thrill? Isn't it everything and nothing you wanted all at once?" Her soul echoed the only thing the young girl knew for certain: growth in this life was exactly what she wanted. No matter how painful, no matter how much strength it took or how deep she had to go, the ever-expanding perspective was worth it. Falling and learning to get back up was worth it. Finding her innermost strength was so worth it. "You're on your way," her soul said. "And I'll never quite arrive," the girl added with a hidden smile. Life had a way of showing her how to stay present while letting her see how she was about to become more. Her soul had a way with words, and luckily the girl knew how to listen: "It's magnificent: all beauty is pain... revealed." With that the girl knew how beautiful she had grown to be inside. Every obstacle had helped her. Who the girl was becoming required more than she knew she had; she was grateful to become more aware of it all. The journey had taken so much, yet gifted her with so much more.

Full week of classes ahead, I'm excited :). I think I fall more in love with teaching each week, best love story ever.

Love ya Jen, thanks for holding me up in all the ways! @jenniferlkirkpatrick #bestacroteam #bestfriendgoals

@buddhiyogalj made me yoga teacher of the month this month!! I did an interview with them, which you can check out in their monthly email or by clicking the link in my profile. Teaching at Buddhi has been so special for me. The owners' teacher training program was the one I decided to take on my path to teach yoga! Because of this, and for so many other reasons, I'm beyond honored and exponentially thrilled to announce I'll be assisting in the 200 hr yoga teacher training this summer at Buddhi Yoga in La Jolla!! So many amazing teachers are in this studio, each is truly a teacher's teacher --you all teach me so much, leave me inspired and it makes me so happy to be here! Thanks for all the love and support @yomanda4 and @cvivas64! You both are incredible mentors, mothers, business women, studio owners, teachers and friends. Love you both! Thanks Buddhi Yoga for coming to take class with me! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’˜

Adding one more unique and beautiful yoga studio to the list of places I teach: @riffsstudios has both an indoor and outdoor studio! My newest classes are: Tuesday and Thursday nights at 5:30pm! Experience Savasana on the deck at sunset :). I start there next week. Can't wait!

This morning I got to see my friend @yoga_with_jenna shineπŸŒŸβ˜€οΈ as @lululemon ambassador:). We met at the beginning of our yoga teaching journeys and have watched each other grow as teachers, students and people. Really proud of this beautiful light!! I'm so happy to know you Jenna! You've helped me to see myself through your eyes and realize my potential, not only in my career but as a human with a lot of love to give, recognizing that in myself as special and fearless. Thank you for always being a cheerleader in my corner!! It was so special for me to share today with you! Love ya forever forever. ❀️

Had a dreamy time teaching my first official class at Spirit today! Thank you to the 22 yogis who came out to practice on a rainy Sunday... it was awesome to see familiar faces too :). That space was feeling electric and serene. πŸ’˜πŸ’˜πŸ˜πŸ™

*Newest Class* Sunday 3:30pm @spirityogastudios

I'm super excited to share that I've added a new class at a new studio: @spirityogastudios Sunday's at 330pm! I'm so excited! I used to practice at Spirit for the longest time as a student, now I get to enter this space as a student and teacher ...and I am thrilled to be apart of such a special yoga community!

This week I made some hard decisions... but looking back, they seem like easy ones. The best gifts in my life have come as a result of letting go, creating space, and finding freedom in little things. Risk it all. Ask for what you want. No doesn't mean no, no means try again. Anything is possible, sometimes time makes the difference, but usually all it takes is a shift in perspective. Goodbye Rancho Valencia and The Crosby. Hello future. Hello dreams coming true. Some exciting announcements are on their way, stay tuned πŸ˜‹

This week I added 2 more permanent classes at @thehouseofyogi Thursday's at 9:30am and Friday's at 4pm!

If you are taking class at Buddhi this coming week, you will probably take class with me and I'm excited to have you :)
