Before the bath ๐Ÿ›€ we both needed one ๐Ÿ˜œ

Checking in from Daisy HQ. Our little power house is 10 pounds now and sleeping longer stretches through the night. I'm so proud that her little body is so healthy, strong, and radiant. My mantra for her while she was inside was "strong , calm & happy." I breathed through this during my meditations for her. Turns out she was already jammin on that path and probably just communicating to me.
.
So, we have Guiding Strala coming for you this May. This book is a collaboration between myself, @miketaylor8 Sam Berlind and inspired by all the @stralayoga Guides and our collective quest to spread ease through leadership. This book is a pumped up version with a lot more real life experience shared, natural movement, eastern healing practices, connection and hands on support, practical anatomy, movement phrases, leading language and way of being, class sequences, and loads more.
.
For years I've been dreaming on publishing the Strala Training Guide and honestly so much feedback has been OMG you can't publish the training manual. No fitness, yoga or training system gives away their "secrets& #34; like that. But that's EXACTLY why I have had the strong desire to share this lovely way of being and leading that has helped millions around the world. This way of being and leading works magic when led by each Guide around the world in each local community. The Guides create the space for healing, grace, and radiant wellbeing.

Give Yourselfโ€”And Othersโ€”the Gift Of Radiant Health And Happiness

Strala teaches us to release the stress that inhibits our bodies, our minds, and our lives. It begins with a mind-set that drops the myth of no-pain no-gain, and says our best way to get where weโ€™re going is to feel good along the way. It works miracles for our whole health, as we unblock our energy and bring our entire self into harmony. And we discover how to accomplish far more, by learning to approach challenge in an easygoing way.

Pre-order up your copy now (at link in bio) and you'll get right away the Guiding Strala Mini-Course. Over an hour of content to improve your leadership skills, help you take great care of yourself, and inspiration for leading with ease.

Dear Uterus,
How you do all that you do I will never know. You don't need permission, second guess your actions, worry if you are good enough, strong enough or capable enough. You do your thing with confidence and ease.
.
Take your time healing. I promise not to stuff or push you into anything or any outfit that doesn't feel good for you. You the boss & I'm here for the ride.
.
Thank you for teaching me to worry less, trust myself more & let the ๐Ÿ’ซ do it's thing. It's such a relief to remember my job is to take care, love big & do good things. You got everything else.

The fundamental flaw with yoga poses & trying to put a body into one.
.
You are a process, not an end point.
.
Trying to be an end point creates awkward uncoordinated action that leads to frustration, tension & rigidity.
.
Remembering you are a process expands into flow state, releasing limitless potential, creativity, awareness, compassion & all around awesomeness.
.
Be the process not a poser.
.
Oh and when you for real become the process you will be able to do all the dumb poses anyway & they become not a big deal ๐Ÿ˜…
.
Late night musings while Daisy sleeps (for an hour ๐Ÿ˜‚) & I feel stimulated from a bit of yoga & meditation.

Thanks @woolandthegang for the sweet hoodie hook up โœŒ๐Ÿผ

So this lesson just came into my life. Wondering where it's been all this time. Grateful it's here now.
.
I spent my entire life intensely driven, needing to be better then my best, beating myself up over my failures, setting impossible standards and goals that I would of course reach, and rarely enjoy because I would have set a zillion new standards and goals along the way.
.
This way of being is in my bones. I am driven, curious, interested & need to participate and create something I hope to be useful in this word. My purpose is to share, teach, connect & most importantly love big.
.
I'm incredibly grateful I have found a healthy home for this fiery passion of mine in @stralayoga with the grounding support of @miketaylor8 & the loving inspiration & leadership of our friends & fellow Guides around the world.
.
I need with the fiber of who I am to participate interconnected with like minded space makers and leaders who care. We have found our tribe & realize it's inclusive of everyone with the desire to radiate & create a life of grace & ease.
.
I need a life that I can exercise my intensity, share with a wide variety of those who uplift from every culture, color & do my best to pull up those who need a supportive boost.
.
I now know, by some wack on the head called sleep deprived new born in the house, life recently passed through my body into this world, kind of way, that I am not in control of this reality.
.
Life flows through me. Energy flows through me. I do not control anything & the idea I do is a waste of time.
.
Understanding the power of my energy & the grace of letting go of the grip of the illusion we call control is what leads directly to the magic rainbow.
.
Take me there. Let's slide down for the ride. What have we been waiting for? ๐ŸŒˆ
.
Oh right, it's this moment.
.
And this moment.
.
Happening now.
