#Health and wellness touch each of us differently. This is one person's story.

When I’m asked to tell my story, I often start with Manhattan, the city where I used to live. The city where I used to thrive and strive for success and happiness. The city where I felt what it means to slowly die inside, by the overbearing shadow of domestic violence. I moved there when I was young, healthy, fit, passionate, and full of life. I was working as a personal trainer and I was dating the perfect guy. “The perfect guy.” My abuser.

Trapped in a toxic relationship, I could not admit that it was happening to me, and I kept pretending that everything was fine. My partner at the time convinced me that it was all my fault — that I was too sick and too vulnerable. That I was not good enough, not intelligent enough, and that there was no place for weak people in a city like New York.

For so long, I had thought that all I wanted was to be a “New Yorker.” That I really wanted to be with him. But at night, alone in that small apartment, all I could do was cry. I could not live this way anymore. NYC, him, and the life I worked so hard to create — they were all nothing more than a trap that I couldn’t escape. In a city of millions, I felt completely alone. Then I discovered yoga and everything changed. #How Yoga Helped Me Escape an Abusive Relationship#youpractice#youfindgrace#doyoumeditate #youbewell#youteach#youreach#youshine#yourise#youaresupported#yoube#ny#huntersville #luv #theyogaofhealings#

I try to meditate every morning, because I know that if I don’t my mind will start enjoying its freedom too much. 🧘‍♂️ *
*
Some things are meant to be wild and free. But if our minds are undisciplined, we end up chasing shadows of what we want to achieve. *
*
So often I seem to convince myself that procrastination — perhaps researching an interesting author 📚 or looking for venues for my workshops — is time well spent when there isn’t a pressing need for these activities. *
*
I’ve noticed how the mind adapts to our goals and desires. It will quickly react to any sign that something is relevant. 🤩
*
*
In a world with so much external information pummelling our attention, it’s so important to create focus. *
*
Do you meditate? What are your challenges with creating clarity and focus?

This was a cemetery in Costa Rica located on an island only assessable during low tide or by boat 👻
.
God I freakin love cemeteries esp ones in Central America .
They are just so beautiful and interesting. It’s more of a colorful celebration of life than a plain display of death.
.
I think I want to be cremated and have a tree pod burial. id love the thought of my body being repurposed as a beautiful Tree that provides oxygen for the world and a home and meal ticket for wild animals 💕🌱🦋
.
When you die, how would you like your life to be celebrated?

This picture reminds me of the silence and simplicity of the desert🧘‍♀️ I loved being out there, surrounded by nothingness. In a place like Joshua Tree, it’s easy to detach, relax and find peace and quiet. Over the past few days, going back to LA and then coming home, I have been feeling more anxious. Going from the serenity of the desert🌵 then jumping city to city has been an adjustment. ✨BUT✨ I am reminded that the key here is to find that peace and serenity within myself, no matter where I am and no matter my outside circumstances. This is difficult for me, but I’m practicing this stillness more and more. 🙌

I hope you find some stillness today 🙏 Namaste!

Take a moment to reflect 🙏

What I never knew about meditation: it isn’t necessarily about quieting your mind, or forcing anything to stop- it’s more about just *observing* what’s there. Not giving it a label of good or bad- just watching the thoughts pass by, without any attachment whatsoever ✨
.
Much less intimidating that way! 😊
.
.
Any frequent mediators out there?? ✨

🤷‍♀️What is Zen?
I’ll hear people say it “feels so Zen in here ” or “I just want that Zen feeling “
Zen is a Japanese word derived from the Sanskrit term dhyana, meaning “ultimate meditation”.
To get that “Zen” we let go,declutter and get to that place of simply being in/with the present moment.
Do you meditate?
If not try this...
👉Set a timer for 3 minutes 👉Get comfortable 👉Count your breath.....
Inhale 4 counts
Hold your breath 7 counts
Exhale your breath 8counts
If you notice thoughts interrupting your counting-just notice and get back to the counting 😉 When the timer goes off- observe how you feel ‼️ That’s it- it’s that simple 🙌

I’m on my way to #NJ for a #babyshower and decided to use the time on the train for a short #meditation. I was in such a rush commuting from my class my energy and stress level was high and my patience level was extremely low. It did not feel good. I have to be honest, sitting and #meditating with this kind of energy was really tough. My chest was tight, my jaw was clenched, and my breath was short. I could not focus on my body scan, I kept planning and focusing on my thoughts. By the end of it though I felt #calmer, more #focused, and the tightness in my chest had subsided. .
There is definitely a misconception that in order to meditate you have to clear your mind. This is totally not the point. For me, it’s the after effect. The #calm after the storm of sitting there watching your thoughts and noticing where your #mind tries to take you. For the longest time I wouldn’t meditate because I thought how am I going to sit still and clear my mind? Now I know this isn’t the point - the point is the #clarity you feel after. .
.
.
So tell me - do you meditate? If so why? If not - what’s stopping you?
