Why is it negative to talk about the hard things in life? Why is there so much fear and shame and embarrassment surrounding opening up about our struggles? Shouldn't we talk about the hard things the most? Rather than bottling them up and locking them deep down where they can churn and fester, poisoning our insides, try opening up a bit, even if it's just in a personal journal. These things you keep locked away affect your body and mind in ways you may not recognize. Because once it's there, it can spread and affect everything you touch. #foodforthought #headhighheartforward #ispeakfromexperience

I didn't realize I had been brainwashed into being abused.
In another life;
I was married... (thankfully in cases of abuse it is easy to get an annulment)
And because he had forced me to become his wife, he felt he was entitled to my body.
Everyday
Whenever he pleased.
Regardless of how much it hurt me.
I had never known what love was until Spencer, and I did not know what the opposite of love was until... we'll call him "Voldemort" for this purpose.
Voldemort screamed at little things, like his inability to provide,
Or the comments men would leave on my Instagram.
He screamed so much my heart would flutter like a little kid who's afraid of being hit by their father, my anxiety would paralyze me and I felt absolutely weak.
Voldemort made it impossible to keep a job because after six hours of being at work I had to come home or I was "obviously cheating"
Sometimes he'd come to my work and sit in his car to make sure I was really there.
Voldemort filled my head with things; that I deserved better than my last relationship... and somehow manipulated me into believing the abuse, WAS better (so I deserve abuse?)
Voldemort made me feel POWERLESS.
I told my friends I was in love.
I told my family they just didn't understand.
I quickly lost everyone I knew because not only was I not "allowed" to see them; I was ashamed they would see me this way, that they would see I had become "one of those women".
I called his mother crying for help every day, but I just "needed to be patient with her son". That "He had been through things" and "I didn't know him like she did".
It's taken me two and a half years to finally talk about what he did to me, what he put me through, and the shame I feel in having let someone manipulate me into ruining my life and being forced to give up control of my own choices.
Even though I was the sole provider in the couple months we were together, he had brainwashed me to believe I couldn't make it on my own;
To the women going through it; you are stronger than you know,
You are ready to leave
you will make it alone
To the women who have gone through it; you are not any less for it.
You are not damaged.

My 2 years #compasspose progress. In 2015 my whole body screamed NO when i practiced compass. In 2016 i finally felt comfortable in it. And in 2017 i can practice compass even on my bad side. What are you working on at the moment? I would love to know ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ .

Day 6 of #TakeItOneLimbAtATime is #Inversion .

Ahhh, two inversions in one day ๐Ÿคค I loved Drea's headstand โค There was no way I was trying it without a wall! Totally nailed it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ _________________________________________

I LOVE Jefferson curls. Here I have a 15 lb weight. You can use a kettle ball or a flat weight. I do about 10 reps 3x sometimes increasing the weight. Note: I could have used a higher bench here.

Need a help from the wall for balance, but I'm happy I got my feet on the wheel and head lefted off the ground ๐Ÿ˜„

#StarPose with steeple grip to honor France for Day 8 of #JetSetYoginis ๐Ÿ’š I love France, I've been twice - once to Toulouse and both times to Paris - but those trips were taken when I was a teenager, I'm sure I'd have different, though equally as awe inspiring, experiences as a woman in my 30's! โœˆ๏ธ๐Ÿ›ต๐Ÿšƒ๐Ÿš๐Ÿ›ณ

Day 22 of #RoadToScorpion with @cyogalab and @livesankalpa is #Hollowback in #PinchaMyurasana .

Confession: I've never even attempted this before today. Slide one is feet off the wall where I was actually able to balance. Slide two is feet on the wall where I got a tiny bit closer to touching the wall. I felt like my gaze was shifted a lot more than it actually is ๐Ÿค” Forget straddle legs, that isn't happening right now ๐Ÿ˜‚ And I'm still a mile away from the wall ๐Ÿ˜” .

Another confession: Sometimes I feel like less than and dismissive because I can't do a handstand or pincha. I feel like people view inversions as the holy grail of yoga. I'm sure this is completely on me and my own shit. But I see teachers that are so eager to help students invert that they completely dismiss the ones that they could totally assist in other ways โค As a teacher I am more impressed when students take breaks and back off because it takes courage to let the ego go! .

I doubt I'll ever have a solid handstand and I'm really okay with that, but I'm also open to it happening someday ๐Ÿ™„

Day 2 of #SummerYogaDetox is this #chairpose on my #tiptoes with a #twist. Took this yesterday while walking along the #moors in #Swaledale .

Beginnings of my GB Handstand journey. I provide two options for getting into tripod. Here I hold for 5 seconds. I would increase to 10 gradually. @awakengymnastics

Shoulder flex exercise that I learned @awakengymnastics โ–ช

Here I'm using a 5lb. weighted bar. Shoulder line opens while ribs knit in.
