About two weeks back, in a moment of spontaneous body appreciation, I posted a picture to this account with the caption, “When you have loose skin, but still feelin’ like a queen 👸🏼✌🏻." Facetiousness of my playful emoji-using IFGAF-yolo-ing tone aside, I didn’t think twice about the caption before I posted it - cavalierly publishing what I presumed would be received as a lighthearted expression of my emerging body confidence. A few hours after posting, however, a follower shared a comment offering up a thoughtful critique of my language. “*AND still feeling like a queen,” she wrote, “be careful where you use the word ‘but.’ Be both. Don’t be one in spite of the other.” As someone who usually attends to her writing with painstaking care and fully subscribes to the cultural power of language, I won’t deny the prickle of embarrassment I felt for being called out. I was shocked by the recklessness of my oversight. The difference between “and” and “but” may seem slight, but – as the insight of this follower’s feedback reveals - the inferences behind their usages emphasize massively different implications. Having loose skin BUT feeling beautiful perpetuates an implicit understanding of beauty and loose skin as mutually exclusive. Having loose skin BUT loving yourself anyway maintains an assumption that your body, your PERSONHOOD is somehow still peripheral to what’s considered “normal,” “palatable”, or “appropriate.” Where I intended to demonstrate acceptance, I was actually pleading for exemption. Having loose skin AND feeling beautiful – feeling valuable, feeling worthy, feeling enough – doesn’t call into question the compatibility between my loose skin and the ability to express a strong sense of self. “Having loose skin BUT,” however, immediately implies a clash. It’s incredible, the subtle power simple words have to shift the way we think about ourselves and perceive the world around us (notice the impact that these two little seemingly innocuous three-letter words can make !!!!). Thank you to this follower for reminding me just how much language fucking matters. It’s a cognizance that better serves us all.

Welcome to day 2 of the Summer Sun Salutations Yoga Challenge! 🌞Today’s pose is forward fold/uttanasana! In the video, we’ll look at a way to make forward folds more comfortable if you’re in a bigger body. I like to apply what I call my “big body triage” which has 2 steps - 1) widen, 2) move stuff out of the way. This definitely applies in forward folds where often, we have belly running into thigh. In the video I’ll show you how I work with forward folds. Hope it’s helpful! ❓Today’s question is, “What props can be helpful with Sun Salutations? ” I use lots of props depending on the class I’m teaching or the person I’m working with. Blocks are a must-have if we’re practicing more “traditional” sun salutations on the floor, but one of my favorite props for sun salutes is a chair or the wall! Bringing the floor up to us (via use of a chair or a wall) makes this sequence more accessible for folks who can’t be on hands and knees or have trouble getting up and down off the floor. I have videos on my site of seated sun salutations as well! What props do you like to use?. .

Body Positivity is a radical political movement that helps to break down the oppressive systems that keep bodies marginalised.
Body Confidence is the freedom to feel good in my body. To wear beautiful clothes that I enjoy regardless of how they look or the perceived rules around wearing them. To find joy in wearing as much red lipstick as I choose, or going bare faced, but feeling equally as confident in either. To add awesome red trainers to every outfit because I adore them, they're comfy, I can just about walk in them, and did I mention how hella cute I look?? I am an activist in a political movement. But I am also a woman indulging in a new found body confidence, finally enjoying all the things that once struck fear into my heart.
Some days I can't put a bra on without being triggered, ending up sobbing in the bathroom clutching my PJs and thanking God I don't have to leave the house. But more than ever, I feel a pride in my body that means it doesn't matter what I'm wearing, PJs, shirts with fairground horses on or just my own skin!
Woman. Activist. Body confidence convert. Powerful. Adorable.

What do you do when you're wearing pants on a hot day? Get a CREEMEE 🍦🍦If you didn't catch my story last night, in Vermont we call this a creemee. Not soft serve or anything else, also I had sprinkles not jimmis 🤣 Any fun terms that you use in your state to share?!?

Some #twirl from the photoshoot today #EverydayTwirl 💗💟

This morning I woke up to a comment notification of "That's fucking disgusting." Of course, it was on a photo of me, it was from May of 2016- me in a crop top. Which means they either scrolled for a long, long time or found a direct link from one of the times I was shared on a fat hate website. This isn't the kicker or anything new.
The kicker is: I look at their profile. It's private but their bio isn't. They have an eating disorder and run a recovery website for people with eating disorders. The bio on the forum they run is "------ is a site dedicated to the support or recovery of those suffering from eating disorders or body dysmorphic disorders. Please be sensitive to this fact when creating an account and contributing to the board." (I'm not directly naming this site due to the fact it's full of "thinspo" and unhealthy mindsets for anyone actually in recovery.) Yet their behavior to fat people- notably me, a fat person who is very open about the fact I have an eating disorder, is part of the reason eating disorders exist in the first place.
Irony just stops being funny after awhile.
Anyways, here's me being fat, happy, and still in recovery. ♥

SUMMER'S HERE! Go live and enjoy yourself! 🌴☀️ Here to remind you that you can wear whatever you want and be happy with the body you have right now! Forget the rules, leave what you've been taught behind and rock what makes you feel comfortable and fabulous! 👙

Your body knows what it wants! It knew how to eat before your diet-filled brain interfered. #bodypositivememes

Quick forward fold flow before I head out to Saratoga to get a bunch of yoga mats for my kids yoga camp I'll be teaching in just a couple weeks 🙈 very nervous and excited! ❤
Forward fold, a true love of mine. I didn't have enough time to warm up today, but warmed up forward fold is so relaxing. The stretch in the lower back 🌸 natural gravity releasing pressure on the spine 😄 beautiful pose!

Been seeing so much of this and I can't even stand it, not one damned bit. No matter your gender we are all beautiful and body diversity brings life to this world. Yes of course if we all weighed the same no we would not look the same. We still have our own height and and our own features. Height alone is why one one standard body weight goal is unrealistic. Let alone its actually just fucking unrealistic. So don't let the standards and molds of society push you hyping up one body type just to rip the other down. We're meant to look to different, but we aren't meant to handle the judgmental wrath of people who have their own hidden insecurities. #allbodiesaregoodbodies

Rocking this look

It's amazing how when you refuse to limit yourself by strange standards, how you feel epically more beautiful, strong and free 💪🏻 TRY IT ON.

redo* Didn't realize it was two poses! Mountain Pose arms up is a bright beautiful pose!
Sorry about nighttime lighting ❤ I kind of like it more anyway though. Better conveys the message of raw beauty.

I know I've shown these before but ya'll, I've got to talk about the shop Bruce got my engagement set from.
They are from @moonkist_desogns and let me tell you- they are AMAZING.
They kept Bruce updated the entire time they were being made, when they shipped, and sent all information we'd need to care for the with them- including the cleaning cloth we'd need. They went above and beyond to make sure they were exactly what Bruce wanted- moonstone with antiquing.
Afterwards (when Bruce forgot to give me the care instructions that came with them) they answered every question I had about care.
After that because my sizes changed we had to get them resized- from a 12.75 down to a 10. Resizing a ring two sizes is a task in itself- much less nearly 3 whole sizes. Usually the integrity of the ring will be compromised having to go down that far- but because of their craftsmanship that isn't the case here.
They were so helpful in the entire process- telling us where and how to get professionally sized, what kind of sizers were closest to their own, and walking me through the entire process (and again, my incessant questions.) And then kept me updated the entire time- the price was amazing for the resizing ($30 for all three rings)but more importantly the customer service is beyond amazing.
10/10 recommend them for any of your jewelry needs.

I'll be out of the bath in 5 minutes. stop calling me every half hour. 😂😂Srsly tho, water has always been such great medicine and healer for me - i'm either in the bath or in the pool, ocean or waterfall. and today I was joined by the #mermaidsquad 🐬💦🛁 #skinnydipping #sacredbath #barbies #bathhealthy #bellydancer #gypsysoul #gypsylife #nomad #bohemian #divinefeminine #selfcare #healingcrystals #findyourmagic #witchesofinstagram #lightworkers #danceforever #goddessempower #gypsystyle #divinefeminine #goddesswithin #radicalbodylove #selflovewarrior #bohovibes #energyhealing #selfloveisthebestlove #goddesswithin #goddesslife #goddessworkout
