Because the real body matters. I get self conscious because I have wide hips and little muffin tops. And my stomach looks like I've been on the cookie diet (because I have) so I wear high waisted bikinis PLUS my boobs are huge so I feel over sexualized and I don't look like runway material but you know what.. fuxk it I don't care anymore. Thanks to my friends i can proudly post this and give zero fuxks. #FUCKSWIMWEEK#fempower I dare you to post a pic and tag a friend to do it too.
It's been a crazy crazy busy last couple days and I missed the deadline for this competition but I wanted to finish it out because #fempower is important to me. FemPower means women are treated equally as men, which unfortunately doesn't always happen (and in these particular political climates, we seem to be taking a step back in inequality). I am very fortunate that in the #acroyoga community everyone is open, encouraging, and women are not treated as inequal, but as powerful beings (like we should be). It means feeling empowered by what I can do with others and empowering others to do the same.
This video is with a friend of mine who is trying acroyoga for the first time, and he trusted me to fly him, even though he is considerably heavier than me. There were other stronger bases to fly with and he still trusted me to fly him. And you can see how empowered he feels to fly and I was empowered to be able to fly him. Thanks Isaac and @val__kyrie for the spot and keeping us safe.
We can't get enough of these pictures looking back at our first trip in 2015. It's these simple connections with people that we will always remember. @desireesiegfried 's heart for the children in the DR is beautiful. Stay tuned this week for more exclusive behind the scenes videos from this trip! 📷: @jennakutcher
