Take me to the places on the earth that teach you how to dance,
And the places where you can risk letting the world break your heart,
And I will take you to the places where the earth beneath my feet,
And the stars overhead make my heart whole again and again. -Oriah Mountain Dreamer.❤

Being deeply loved by someone
Gives your strength,
While loving some deeply
Gives you courage.

“Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy” - Guillaume Apollinaire

Photo from today at the New York City Museum of Natural History next to the world’s LARGEST dinosaur fossil. It’s symbolic as I’ve been feeling a bit like a dinosaur after a full month break from posting on social media. I’ve intentionally taken a break to step back and try to get off auto-pilot. In a world that seems to be moving faster every day with news delivered up to the second, we are continuously being pulled in so many different directions. It seems in the quest to become what we think will make us “happy,” we don’t take the time to actually enjoy the happiness that is available to us NOW by just BEING. I’m not suggesting you take a month long pause like I did, but perhaps you start with an easy ten minute pause sometime this week. You could set a reminder on your calendar to go for a short walk, enjoy a latte without the distraction of your phone, or take time to play with your dog. What are you going to do this week? I’d love to hear from you!

Irish moss is not moss. It is a type of seaweed that is found along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Irish moss contains 15 of the 18 essential nutrients that make up our bodies. These nutrients include vitamins A, D, E, F and K. It is also a great source of iodine, potassium, sulphur, and calcium. I usually add it to smoothies and in my raw desserts and homemade beauty products. #toscana #yogaretreat #yoga #lifestyle #amore #mindfulness #tuscanyyogaretreat #goodlife #instadesign #italia #inspiration #lessisamore #meditation #travel #italy #tuscany #yogaeveryday #vegan #yogaeverywhere #goodlife #summer #malibu #italiansdoitbetter #fiesole #new_photoitalia #summer2017 #travel #traveldiary #yogadestinations #tuscanypeople #firenze #yogajournal

🐧My Crow Journey 🐧
.
Rather apt to take this progress checkpoint at the end of my first crow challenge. .
When I first started yoga last yr, the first arm balance to learn was clearly Crow. It's the base of all arm balances. I couldn't nail it for like ...forever. @janee_yoginee would always tease me that I need to write a book on "My 1 Year Journey to Crow". Unfortunately, she wasn't wrong and it seems that's really how long I took. 🙄 I could hold pincha longer than I could hold crow! I'm always the one in class who face plants loudly scaring the hell out of everyone. .

Sorry not very inspiring cos I took so long but there was progress! I'm still not great at crowing but it has improved and I'm definitely more engaged.
.

@jasmine_bambi just started to learn crow and asked me how long it took me... it's embarrassing, but it is what it is.... and this is my journal so here's #keepingitreal. 😂
.
@emmataychew is also just learning to crow and she's surrounded by so many blocks I can only laugh. So here's mummy darling. Hopefully you didn't get my crowing genes. 😘
.
.
📆May / Jul 16 - Hit and miss. I had to rest knees outside triceps rather than on triceps to get more surface area. Even then, I couldn't hold much. .
📅 Aug / Oct 16 - Still can't hold very long but I could get my knees into triceps better. Started to understand wrapping triceps inwards to hold knees. A little more controlled. .
📅 Jan 17 - I can more or less hold this quite consistently. But it's very much stacking balance rather than engagement. . 📅 Jul 17 - i can lift my foot closer to bottom. I'm more engaged and I think I can pretty much hold it 30s or more reasonably consistently. I'm meant to be working towards 1 min holds but not today cos I need to be sparing on use of wrist. 😅

Swipe 👉🏼 for some fun battle scar shot. 🤣🤣🤣

✨ // if you want to go deep within yourself, then make time for sadhana (daily personal practice) • you can incorporate asana (movement), meditation, hygiene - whatever rituals for self-care and reflection you can commit to • I've recently committed to journaling and morning reflection • it's a wonderful way to start the day: with purpose and intention • whether or not you consider yourself a yogi, sadhana is important because it's time you carve out of the day for yourself (even if you dedicate your intention to serving others) • sadhana is self-care • how do you make time each day to care for yourself? 🌻 #sfyear

When you succumb to fear,
You are under the illusion
That you can predict the
Future.
...
Surrender to Love
And trust the process .
Wishing everyone a beautiful Monday! 😘

July #ACROVINYASA Challenge
DAY 24: #ReverseNamaskar
.
BASE: From Super Yogi, reposition hands to flyer’s elbows and ask flyer to bend arms and legs at the same time. Be sure to extend arms and maintain a strong leg line. Depending on the flexibility of flyer, press flyer's elbows all the way together to offer a deeper stretch for the triceps. Create more side body stretch by laterally rotating hips and side-bending flyer's body.
.
FLYER: From Super Yogi, as base repositions hands to flyer's elbows, slowly bend arms and take reverse prayer position. Bend legs into a diamond shape (Baddhakonasana). Make sure feet are visible through base’s legs to maintain a solid shelf. As base presses elbows closer together, communicate how much stretch is enough. Always ask for what you need.
.
SPOTTER: Stand in narrow warrior stance alongside the base facing flyers back and hands on either side of flyer's hips. Check for alignment, be the voice of communication, and bring flyer and base back into balance when necessary.

Happy Monday 🤘🏼
Here's another video of me rollin around on the ground & getting upside down lol. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Started my day with a yoga practice led by my friend @rodolfotandazo (who also happens to be one of my favorite teachers 😌). Moving & sweating 1st thing in the morning is clutch for me. 👌🏼 Sets the tone for the day & just makes it overall better, ya know? 💁🏼 I also spent my time in Savasana thinking & feeling an enormous amount of gratitude that I am even able to practice yoga at 8:15am on a Monday. This felt really good. 💛 Anyways- just got organized for the week and prioritized my to do list for the day. Now it's time to tackle it. It's gonna be a good week y'all, I feel it. 🙌🏼 #yoga #HIITTOINVERT -

-Remember why you started- ...I started this process 960 days ago... that's 2.63 years and 110 pounds heavier then I am today. 💪🏼 I was overweight and couldn't even feed my babies without being uncomfortable.. I couldn't even keep up with them when they were playing. Now we all enjoy fitness and exercise and you bet I can keep up with my girls today 👍🏼 “Motivation is what gets you started.

Happy Monday ladies and gents! And welcome to day 4 of the July #yogaclubchallenge 🙌🏼 Today's asana is epk 1! But for those of you who can't quite twist or fly that side crow, give ekp 2 a try! Begin in chaturanga and bring one knee to the back of your arm in the same side (right knee to right arm/left knee to left arm). Slowly extend the front leg while lifting the back foot off the ground 🙌🏼 YogaClub Tribe Leaders:
