Let's keep breaking these yogi stereotypes! .
Check out my girl @queenbettina! We met at one of my YONI Experience workshops earlier this year and she has been a delight to be around! She has been incorporating yoga and meditation into her life and it has helped her navigate her life's journey even better than before. I love that she accepts herself and makes space for herself - 2 very vital things we should do! Shoutout to this beautiful #unconventionalyogi .

As you can see I'm no Yogi Professional; but they say "practice makes perfect". But I don't practice yoga for perfection, I practice yoga for the peace it gives to me. I'm enjoying my Yoga Journey the poses that I'm good at, and the poses that I'm not so good at 😂 But mostly I enjoy the Peace, Calm and Stillness that it brings to my life. Much Love to my Beautiful and Amazing Yoga Coaches @rashidatboston and @sereneradianceyoga #Namaste 🙏🏾 .

DO YOUR RESEARCH! GO WATCH "WHAT THE HEALTH" NOW!!! Stop funding companies that are keeping you sick. This was the most eye opening thing for me but I'm not surprised. All of these agencies that are supposed to help us are funded by the very companies that create the products that sicken us in the first place. This documentary is chocked full of info that will make you freeze in your tracks. Take your health into your own hands. Don't be afraid; be informed. You have the power to heal yourself. Choose yourself over everything. .

I've never been one to follow the crowd too much, or let others lead me. And as an adult, I've learned to change my perception on what reality is, using my own resources to figure things out and not allowing my brain to be spoon fed lies. I am a yoga teacher because I wanted people who looked like me to experience the life saving benefits of yoga and meditation. People in my community are often unfamiliar with yoga, and sadly, mainstream America has us thinking that you have to be a thin, white woman with contortionist tendencies to appreciate yoga. LIES!!!!! That's not how yoga works. You come to yoga because you are inflexible, stressed, lost, out of shape, can't breathe well, have medical conditions, and are at your wits ends. Yoga and meditation helps with all that and then some. So my plan is to start sprinkling in photos of everyday people doing yoga to begin to convince people that yoga is literally for everybody. And just like anything, with time, effort, and patience, you can take your mind, body, and soul to the next level. .

▫️MONDAY MOTIVATION: Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and GO DO IT. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. ~ Howard Thurman
.
▫️What makes you come alive? What brings you joy, peace, excitement, or contentment? What sets your soul on fire or makes your heart sing? Is it a hobby? Or something you used to enjoy many years ago? Whatever it is, incorporate it into your life now. For you see, when you do the things that you love to do, you are living authentically. You don't have to fake smile your way through it, or force yourself to get it started. You eagerly go do whatever it is, and that's when the best version of yourself is lit up for the world to see.
.
▫️There are too many times that we are on autopilot as we move through our daily lives. We get so bogged down with responsibilities that we forget to thrive. Life is for the living; not the zombies. And yes! You absolutely have time for the the things that make you come alive, but perhaps you've been numb for so long that you have convinced yourself that your to-do lists are more important than you. Please know, dear heart, that you have been put on this earth to do far more than cook, clean, go to work, give praise, take care of family/friends, pay bills, grow old, and die.
.
▫️Now is the time to tune in to your heart and let it lead you to its fondest desires. When you honor you, you are giving yourself and the world exactly what it needs.

This is what my #selfcaresunday looks like today. I'm supposed to be a protest right now, fighting against police brutality against a black, teenage boy that happened a couple of villages away from mine. But right now, the person I need to advocate for is myself.
.
I meditated for 90 minutes; I started with clearing my space with Palo Santos and then breathing exercises to center myself. I played my singing bowl for myself while I breathed. When I felt open, I asked myself a question which lead me to communicate with my inner child as an adult. As I talked and hugged my 7 year old self and then again with my 14 year old self, I provided them with the love and support I needed at those ages. I spoke to their hearts and promised to protect them so that they never had to put their walls back up. I covered them both in love and light, as I held their hands. Their smiles were abundant, as were the tears flowing from my eyes. I gave myself permission to release the childhood thoughts from others and myself that have kept me fearful. I forgave myself for taking on burdens that weren't mine to bear. After that, I spoke intentions into my yoni eggs. 90s love songs played in the background where I envisioned the songs were written from me to me. It was so powerful and I connected with these songs in a drastically different way.
.
Today, I am certain that I gave myself the love I've needed for quite awhile. It wasn't easy. It hurt like hell, but I HAD to care for me. This process will need to be repeated until my childhood pain is no more. I just have to keep fighting for me. ❤️

▫️MONDAY MOTIVATION: THERE'S NO NEED TO BE PERFECT TO INSPIRE OTHERS. LET PEOPLE GET INSPIRED BY HOW YOU DEAL WITH YOUR IMPERFECTIONS. ▫️I am no different than anyone reading this. I have "good" and "bad" days. But I have spent many years acting as if my imperfections don't exist. I have tried to hide them in an attempt to live up to some perfect, unobtainable standard that I was holding myself hostage to. And I am more than certain this is why I have OCD and anxiety issues. I've been entirely too harsh with myself. But what I've been learning to do in the last 2 years is not only embrace those flaws, but shine a light on them to take away their power. The more I publicly do this, the more connected I become to others as they see my imperfections and connect with me on a human level. I now feel more connected to real humans being open then I ever did being "perfect". ▫️We are all teachers with no one person being more valuable than the next. We inspire people daily - partners, children, co-workers, strangers, etc. Getting things right doesn't make you an inspiration. How you handle the wrongs does. It's ok to let people see you sweat, cry, fall apart, and put yourself back together. The grace and humility you give to yourself during those times is what inspires others. Don't be afraid to let people see behind the curtain sometimes because even the great and powerful Wizard of Oz was nothing more than a flawed mortal with wisdom. ▫️I received a beautiful comment overnight from @thedemonbarberswife who reminded me of the importance of shining light on dark spaces and unapologetically letting the world see. 🙏🏽❤️🙏🏽 #sereneradianceyoga #perfectlyimperfect #perfectlyflawed #inspiration #inspire #iam #youare #yogabody #yogamuscles #livefearlessly #maskoff #weareallteachers #weinspire #ocd #anxiety #imperfections #humility #grace

Before every indoor class, I burn Palo Santos to clear the energy of the space I'm about to teach in. Everything in the world is made from energy at the atomic level. Energies can be positive and negative - physically and metaphorically. It's always a good idea to "cleanse" your sacred space with a medium like Palo Santos (or sage or frankincense) to create an environment that is conducive for your spiritual growth. I use Palo Santos to clear my home, my crystals, my body.... hell I've even done my car. It smells fantastic, and it has been used for centuries by the South American people to heal diseases as well as clear negative energy.
