Speaking at @thegoodfest tomorrow along with these wellnessy powerhouses. As you can see, we are obviously having no fun at all together. None at all. 🙃 #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk #thegoodfest

"What is straight? A line can be straight, or a street, but the human heart, oh, no, it's curved like a road through mountains.” -Tennessee Williams 🏳️‍🌈 DAMN PROUD to live in a city that so wholeheartedly embraces every human heart. Really looking forward to the day when the people who aren't on board with that are almost (if not entirely) impossible to find. Happy #pride2017, NYC!! #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk #loveislove

Never underestimate the power of a good bloom. I hope your Saturday is as magical as this DIY 💐situation I got to make for myself at the @mindbodygreen x @sweetgreen dinner this week (which I have NOT killed yet, miraculously). #greenthumbish #bloomsonblooms #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk #mindbodygram

So thankful I had the opportunity to go to the @thegoodfest this weekend. Feeling grateful for the amount of love and happiness I am surrounded with on a daily basis. It wasn't easy to get here but, I am so excited for what is to come ☺️

Throwin' it back to when I marched with #Tutu and found my #TutuTwin on the street. Don't forget: LIKE MINDS CHANGE WORLDS 🤜🤛 #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk (ps if anyone knows who this gal is, I'd love to get this pic of two jubilant strangers to her 👯)

Hi 👋 It's me. I'm here. I haven't been as active on social media lately. Usually when people type this it's followed by something about unplugging and being out living life and not to live in a newsfeed etc etc etc. But (ramble post ahead) the thing is, I've been here, just sort of staying in the shadows... And I miss the connection 🤝So many thoughts on this: I find myself scrolling and thinking, What do I even have to add to the mix? What do I have to say? What am I doing? Does what I have to say (or show) even matter? And so I don't post anything because I feel like everyone has way more to say than I do. And I THINK this is fueled by worrying about things that either don't matter in the long run (ie whether there will be free machines at the laundromat) or things that DO matter but I just get overwhelmed thinking about them (ie missing my LA community [esp during wedding💍planning], money, work opportunities/next steps). But I know I need to make a shift, because the reason I love social media is just that: it's SOCIAL. I love sharing and I love listening (er, reading). I love the dialogue, I love the conversation. And the great thing about conversation is that it CONNECTS us and makes us feel like we've got a tribe that's got our back no matter what. Whether it's on Instagram or IRL, I think it's important to remember that connection goes two ways. You can't JUST share but you also can't JUST listen. You've got to do both in equal parts. All this to say, this week I'm really gonna try to start doing better. For you. For myself. This week I'll pick up the phone more, this week I'll silently scroll less, and this week I'll choose to float through instead of worrying about what is or isn't or what comes next. Deal? Deal. #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk 📷 @penaphotography

The truest test of character is not how gracefully you walk though the light, but if through grace you can create light in the darkness.

Because when you're a powerful woman, you're a goddess unchained. And everyone will have something to say ⚡️Here's how it goes when you're a writer: you sit for hours and think of everything and nothing all at once. Your mind forms a concept, a feeling, and in the work you sit and stew. But it's at the very end of the day, after you've listened to all the music and done all the reading and thinking and moving and zoning out, that that ONE LINE comes to you and shapes everything. The phrase "the goddess unchained" came to me a few nights ago close to midnight and shook me with its truth. "Because when you're a powerful woman, you're a goddess unchained. And everyone will have something to say." WOAH 😳 How many times have we, when seemingly at our most expressed and most triumphant, been met with critiques and criticisms? How many times, when we are struggling because we dig so much and dive so deep and feel so strongly, are our pains and fears and doubts blown out of proportion by the blinding and warped reflection of the mirror society decides is a good idea to hold up to us? Being a powerful woman, standing in your truth, is NOT easy but holy moly is it rewarding. We are all powerful, really - it's just that some of us get a little too used to the discomfort of the chains that threaten to hold us back. All this to say: I wrote a thing on WANT today about this and I hope you like it 🙏 "The world is reactive, so you must be proactive.

The world takes cues, so you must make your own.

I don’t want you to look down at the quicksand and say, How Dare They!

What I do want you to do is stand in the middle of the storm and exclaim with pride, How Dare I!" (link in 🔝of profile)

My advanced practice is not a headstand
Or a handstand
Or that twisty arm balancy thingy I learned to do last year after days on end of trying.
My advanced practice isn’t how deep I twist
Or how floaty I get
Or how I move in rhythm with everyone else in the room perfectly without fail.

My level 3 class does not involve higher weights
Or quicker reps
Or all those fancy things people (still) do on a bike.
My advanced class is not 75 minutes, or 90, or a three hour stretch
Because really, who cares about numbers.

Do I impress you? That’s on you.
Do I seem weak? That’s on you, too.

Because my advanced practice happens that second I shift from asleep to awake
The SECOND I move for no one but me.
Have you ever reached your arms out in child’s pose, pressing through the ground, spreading your body so fiercely onto the mat you think it might stick?

Because let me tell you, that is something.

My advanced practice happens when I skip a pose,
Or two,
Or three,
Or a whole eight minutes in a row
Because it moves me so much that all I can do is lay there in awe.
My level threes happen in the quietest moments, the longest holds,
The times when I can feel my soul coming alive not from a shape but from a spark inside.

It’s not about what it looks like, it’s about what it feels like.

It’s not about touching my toes, it’s about touching my soul.

My advanced practice is not slow or fast, it is what I decide to feel right. It exists with no distractions, it allows me to meet myself every time without fail. My “power” class is the one in which I fall into a deep savasana, rolling over at the end to realize everything yet nothing is quite the same.
I love my twisty arm balance thingy and upside down is very nice.

But my advanced practice involves none of that.

Anyone who tells you differently has probably been in a beginner class all along.

Do you want something because YOU want it, or because Everyone Else has it? Do you believe something because YOU believe it, or because Everyone Else preaches its gospel? Do you go down the concrete road because it's where Everyone Else is walking...or do you trust your inner GPS to lead you where you need to be via the alternate scenic route? 💫 #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk

What is it you stand for or believe in? Our actions, and examples define us and should be based on what we stand for and not what we stand against. Instead of focusing on others views, beliefs, and causes we should focus on sharing and developing our own. We all want to be heard, validated and understood. This begins when we accept ourselves, and our own values and beliefs. When we love ourselves, we are then able to respect and love others. What we feed grows; tell your story not someone else's! #purpose #insideout #wantyourself #shine #rehabtime #standforyourself #grow #bethelight #change #believeinyourself #standwith #respect #bethechange #notonedaydayone #godfirst

I was out to dinner the other night and someone asked me if I ever sit down and feel like I have nothing more to say. It was crazy to me that this person was actually surprised when I said, Oh my god are you kidding? EVERY SINGLE WEEK. // I've been struggling lately with #selfdoubt, #comparison, and my tendency to check out when those two things start to go a little over the edge. It's probably a combo of anxiety and the intense guilt I sometimes feel when I'm NOT this uber proactive or innovative person I both want to be and feel expected to be (expectations from and by myself, ps). Combine that with INTENSELY wanting to help others who resist being helped and I just end up feeling totally ineffective. It's a little too much to handle on my hard days, so I just go 📻 silent until I can create some separation between me and this feeling that I don't like to have. Which obviously is not the answer and makes me feel even worse, like a flake, etc etc. And the LAST thing I feel like doing in that headspace is responding to the text or email or call and either fake it or try to explain why I'm feeling the way I do. Because I have a history of voicing what's tough for me and then being told I'm being crazy and have no reason to feel the way I do (pro tip: that's not support, that's low-key gaslighting). But I know we ALL go through this. SO THIS WEEK instead of being silent, I decided to write about it and see where it took me. Link in 🔝of profile. And speaking of, I felt back in my vulnerable zone when writing this one, which is my favorite place to be. Weird? Maybe. Fulfilling? You betcha 💛💛💛 #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk #comparison #wordswordswords #itsokaynottobeokay

You up? The new WANT piece is. Surprise 🤗 Back to vulnerable-feeling writing FTW...I'll just leave this here for now. #WANTyourself #womenagainstnegativetalk

Everyone says find yourself someone who makes you happy...but I don't think it's ANYONE's job to make you happy. That's recipe for disaster/codependency (same same) and not anyone's job but your own. What someone else CAN do, however, is help you PRACTICE happiness.
When I asked 👨 what I could do to celebrate his bday while he's away, he gave me very specific orders: "I want you to sit in park for five minutes, watch people, and be happy." And I get to MARRY this guy. Freakin life jackpot 🏆💰🥇

Want yourself😍💯🙏🏼❣️ #WantYourself #Love

It's always been one of my dreams to be one of those "experts" that people reference in magazines. Especially in the sidebars. For some reason I am a sidebar junkie and have always read then before the articles themselves...welp, today is the day!!!! Spotted by my wonderful feyoncé at JFK. Check @womenagainstnegativetalk out in the latest issue of @womensrunningmagazine...I don't know if I am an "expert," but I AM sharing some stuff that's worked for me when it comes to shifting self talk on the run (literally). I know, I know...misspelled my last name but I promise it's still me 😉 PS I have absolutely zero chill about this am I'm totally fine with that 💃🎉😃🤜🤛⚡️🎊
