Just a quick note to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU for all of your heartfelt messages and generous donations in response to our previous post about #GoFundMe for mama Mimi. We have raised $12,035 so far, which is INCREDIBLE! It also means 120 warm winter coats donated by my parents to those in need! 50 coats are packed and ready to be delivered in NYC... hopefully my dad can figure out how to take a video on his phone🤪 so we can share it with you on insta stories.

We’re going to keep this campaign going, so if you know of anyone in your community, who could/would like to help, please share our previous post and the link to the GoFundMe page. 🙏🏼 Thank you so much!

HELP US HELP MY MOTHER🙏🏼
👆🏼link in bio👆🏼
Dear family and friends, as many of you know, it has been a pretty rough and emotional few months for our family. We have decided to reach out to our community for help with a Go Fund Me page to help my mum and dad face the harsh reality of medical expenses. Here is what happened and how you can help...
My family and I are raising money for my mother Michele who has been diagnosed with dementia with Lewy Bodies. As in many families, my mother is the rock who holds the family together with true kindness, generosity, empathy and abundance of love. Earlier this summer she was hospitalised after falling unconscious and collapsing on the floor at home. She had every test imaginable, CAT scans and MRIs, 4 spinal taps, blood work and even surgery, but no one knew what had happened to her or why. As the mystery deepened, my mother would occasionally emerge into a state of semi consciousness, but her mind seemed to have gone. We were devastated as our dear mama struggled to connect to present day reality. This began a long, downward spiral with medications and more tests, to find a cause for her illness. After many possible diagnoses, her doctors have diagnosed her with early stages of Lewy Bodies Dementia. LBD is a form of dementia like no other. It does not come on slowly over many years. After two months at a hospital, it was nothing short of a miracle to see her finally regain consciousness. Michele is now back home, but the medical bills continue to accumulate and she needs ongoing care. My parents have been forced to put our family home for sale to keep up with the bills and expenses. We are calling on your compassion and generosity to help us. Thank you in advance for remembering the threads that bind us all and helping however you can. My parents have been in the clothing business for 30 years. As a thank you for your donation, they will donate a warm winter coat for every $100 raised. The coats will be donated to NY Cares , One Warm Coat and Women in Need.

From the bottom of our hearts, merci beaucoup. 🙏🏼❤️

Oh sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth. 🌄

Wanna see me walking around the mat with my head stuck between my legs and drishti set at where the sun don’t shy?😳🤔🤪 ...watch the end of this little snippet from my #floatlikeafirefly series on @alo.moves 👍🏼 I’ve been asked recently to describe my practice in one word. The first word that came to mind was #FUN. I feel that without an element of play, a sincere inquiry can, and often does, turn into a “serious” dogmatic practice. #justathought

As we wrap up the first week of our 200hr YTT in Bali, we’re diving deep into the yogic philosophy of the Veda (knowledge). Here is a little piece from yesterday’s lecture that emanates through this pic beautifully... There is a phenomenon that occurs all over the world every morning called Brahma Mahurt (the hour of Brahman). It is that very auspicious time about 20min before sunrise 🌄 when yogis bow and greet Lord Surya (sun) with sun salutations followed by seated meditation. Touched by Savaswan (the warm breeze preceding sunrise), and basking in Ushas (the golden embrace before breaking of the dawn), the ancient Rishis (seers) experienced a state of Yoga (union), the union of Atman (the core of personality) and Brahman (the Devine ground of existence - the infinite, changeless reality beneath the world of change). They discovered that this infinite, changeless reality lies at the core of every human personality, and re-cognized that the purpose of life is to discover this reality experientially, that is to realize the Self while here on Earth. Thus the science and practice of yoga was born. This ancient piece of technology has been preserved for thousands of years and is still with us today, offering guidance amidst the uncertainty and mass confusion of our times. 🙏🏼H.

“Grow through what you go through.” I recently saw this written somewhere and it’s been floating in my mind ever since. A helpful reminder to look at everything that happens to us as an opportunity to learn something. So, what are you growing through right now? H.

What an awesome weekend! Feeling so much gratitude for all the opportunities, partnerships and friendships we are blessed with. Mega thank you to @aloyoga for putting on an amazing retreat in Palm Springs over the past few days. Let’s just say we were super pampered this weekend... fun yoga classes, dance parties, massages, photo shoots, pool shenanigans, delicious food and even a sound bath, but the biggest highlight was the opportunity to connect with some of our favourite humans. Miss y’all already! Oh yeah, hanging out at Sylvester Stallone’s mansion was pretty freakin’ cool too. Can’t wait to do it again next year! 😆✌🏽✨ #THANKYOU 🙏🏼

Just sitting here listening to a heavy rain fall in NYC and wondering what to write... another handstand blah blah blah... and then I noticed my mind judging the minutest things about my form in this pic. How crazy is that? For months I couldn’t even bare weight on my right wrist due to injury, and now instead of feeling joy from being able to handstand again, my mind chooses to critique something so irrelevant. All that just because I saw a “straighter line” on someone else’s IG a minute ago. What a load of💩. Every body is different. I mean, on the inside we are one and the same ocean of consciousness temporarily rising into a single wave, but on the outside our bodies and minds look very different - unity appearing as multiplicity. It’s so easy to fall into the trap of comparison mentality. We can become such merciless critics of what we perceive to be our shortcomings. Well, I’m here writing this to tell you and remind myself to “f**k that!” We all have a very unique body that houses the most precious thing in the universe, YOU. Better start appreciating every single cell that makes up this vehicle, cuz it’s the only one I/you have! 😉H.
