Haters and doubters are just reflections of themselves. And honestly, they give me some damn good drive to keep going on the path I've chosen for me and my family, because i know in my heart, I'm doing good, that it's the right way and that IM A GOOD MOM.

I found comfort in updog for the first time today in more than 6 weeks (this is obviously not that pose). Not only was it comfortable, but it actually felt amazing! Injuries are always so filled with lessons. Mainly for me, I find they remind me to remain patient and unattached. As yogis we always talk about staying unattached to things, but we rarely extend that to our practice. Especially as ashtangis, we can tend to view poses as Pokémon that we collect into our little toolbox as we progress through the series. However, just as anything in life, a pose can come and go. This is especially true as we age and become far more vulnerable to injury. I say it all the time, but I’ll repeat it again, progress isn’t linear. Yoga isn’t about collecting poses. It’s about turning our attention inward and bringing awareness to the moment, to the breath, to the movement or the stillness. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #diamondpose #backbend #heartopener #hipopener #inflexibleyogis #kapotasana #ashtanga #ashtangi #yogaasana #ashtangayogalove #ashtangasecondseries #deepbackbend #secondseriesashtanga #progressnotperfection #yogatime #yogatribe #yogafam #yogafamily #igyogafam #yogainspo #myyogajourney #yogagoals #yogaasana #yogastudent #yogaprogress #ashtanga #ashtangalove #ashtangapractice #yogafeature #inflexibleyogis

Today is day one for #loveouryogitribe and I decided to take a #tabletoppose which is actually a really good #heartopener . I know exactly what cha mean about how hard it is to make friends that share all you same interest! Or even just my interest in yoga!! I still have not attended any yoga classes here yet and it is my own fault, but there is always something else I need to be doing or spending my money on! I was hoping that with my new job at the coffee shop I would be able to meet some people to maybe become friends with , and I have! Sadly my favorite coworker is only 18 though and I just wouldn’t feel right hanging out with her outside of work! But she sure is a blast at work though 😂😂😂😂! But here🤗 here on IG I have soooo many awesome friends that love yoga just like I do and I appreciate you all!! Even if we are just internet friends! You are all just as important and appreciated and love as if I could just reach out and hug you🤗😉😘! Thanks for being so awesome!! Friendliest Hosts @that_damn_hippie_jennametal and @pandadoesyoga and the amazing friendly sponsors as well😊 @the_tattooed_hippie @theartofbrad @pricklypearmalas @omsweeeetom @facesoft_towels @glassticbottle #igyoga #igyogafamily #igyogawoman

•• DEEPLY IN TOUCH WITH ALL THAT IS •• Being deeply in touch will require you to level up because until you do, a very important part of your purpose here on earth will be missing. Those who are highly intuitive are also highly sensitive to energies, that means ALL energies. What you watch, what you listen to, what you put on your plate, what you focus on, what you surround yourself with, it is all IMPERATIVE to your growth & how you are affected in your physical reality. You must become proactive about what you invest your energy and efforts into, it is important to treat yourself in such a way that NOTHING that is out of alignment can stick to you but is merely just a lesson passing by to help you develop & grow! People will label you, that’s just what people do when their afraid of themselves & don’t know who they are, and that’s fine, because that’s their level of consciousness to date. Allow them to carry on and give them back their energy while you carry on and carry out your peace 🙏🏽 Have a wonderful day soul fam, live as your highest self 🙏🏽♥️💫 at Narre Warren, Victoria, Australia

Sacred Cacao Ceremonies have been around for thousands of years, originating all the way back to Mayan and Aztec traditions in Central and South America, used for spiritual, medicinal and ceremonial purposes for inner awakening and creative guidance. Pure ceremonial grade cacao is used as a heart opening medicine for people to safely experience awakening, revelation and inner healing. During ceremony Cacao is used in a sacred medicinal ritual, where intentions are set and once consumed, euphoric states are unlocked, negative emotions are released and we are able to connect to ourselves and the loving energy in our body.

|| Foxy Fish || Foxy Day 2 of #Fab40PlusYogis . . Fish pose makes me feel foxy because of how you lift and open your heart in the pose. The opening makes me feel confident and alive ♥️ . . Now, to be honest, in real life I am not foxy. It may seem that way in some of my poses but really I am not. I ADMIRE other woman who embrace their sexiness or foxiness because this just isn't an innate trait of mine. Charming maybe but not sexy. But at least for today I found a little "foxiness" in this fish pose of mine 🐟♥️ Curious do you embrace your foxiness or are you like me, and perhaps struggle to be a foxy lady? . .

Everyone at any given time is operating from their own level of perception. We are all having a hard time, we all have challenges, stresses, discomforts though there also calm, happy and even loving times in our lives. If you are having more hard times than good ones, how do we diminish the bad ones and have more of the good ones? The most direct way is by helping others out. By volunteering, serving without expectations what’s interesting is that when this is suggested most people’s reaction is “no, i dont have time” or “im the one who needs help, i dont want to do that” or “no i prefer to stew in my own “i feel bad about me” juices” But seriously it works! It put things in perspective. Try it out. Test it. “No man is island entire of itself” thanks to the effort of innumerable people you are and have what you have right now. From the food in your plate, to your home, to the little mechanical device you are using to read this message right now. Yoga is also a practice off the mat take it everywhere with you. . . . . . ⠀ #yoga #yogalove #asana #yogainspiration #yogaeverywhere #yogalife #healthyliving #yogaeverydamnday #latinyogis #meditation #yogapractice #sankalpa #nycyogis #heartopener #kingcobra

Day 15 RESTORE // EMPOWER Anāhata- heart center The Gift Be still, my soul, and steadfast. Earth and heaven both are still watching though time is draining from the clock and your walk, that was confident and quick, has become slow. So, be slow if you must, but let the heart still play its true part. Love still as once you loved, deeply and without patience. Let God and the world know you are grateful. That the gift has been given. -Mary Oliver Imagine you walk into your old bedroom when you were anywhere from 3-7 years old. You see that little girl or boy on the bed. They are so happy to see you as they know exactly who you are. What conversations would you have? You give each other a big warm hug + you feel pure love. You promise to take absolute care of this child, no one can do it better than you. You listen to her or him, play, live their dreams. In theory, every single soul chose to manifest into this world at a certain time, in a certain location, body, parents, family, situation. Our soul believed we could make it through. We are all SOul UNIQUE + have our own gifts. You are enough.  You are worthy of your dreams. You are worthy of existence . You are worthy of receiving love. The We is worthy of You. The love you give is enough. ——————— on edge?! 🌝👋🏼Use this opportunity to be easy, notice reactions, emotions, mental stories. -Cleanse and charge crystals w/ salt water + leave outside in the moonlight (or snow if its winter time) -Purify the air burning herbs/instance -candle YOGA - yin heart openers Pictured is one beautiful heart forward yogini for some peak yang postures to build + safely open to. BREATH- alternate nostril breathing. Balancing solar / lunar sides of your mind+ body. Place your two peace fingers of right hand in between your brows on the minds eye.  Ring finger rests on your left nostril, thumb on the right. Left hand on heart. exhale all air. Close the right and inhale through the left - close and hold. Exhale out the right, hold. Inhale right- close and hold, exhale left. Inhale left, close hold, exhale right…cont. for a few minutes.

Happy Monday ☀️. The first sun salutation that I did after I felt like I could practice again, was interesting 🤔 I was so, so stiff and moved into this pose so slowly. It was like attempting the pose for the very first time. I consider #urdhvamukhasvanasana one of the least challenging back bend, but not this time 😅I’m starting a two week heart opening challenge tomorrow and i think it is exactly what I need. ~ #backbend #heartopener #updog #upwardfacingdog #slowflow #yogaheals #yogahealing #myyogajourney #yogaphotography #loveandalliscoming #onebreathatatime

Another Sunday, another chakra flow with the hubby. Today, we focused on the fourth chakra, known as anahata or the heart charka. Anahata translated means "unhurt, unstruck, or unbeaten." I love the translation, because I think of the heart being unbeatable in it's pursuit towards love and acceptance. Opening up the heart allows us to not only accept ourselves but accept the reality around us as it is. Finding balance here helps us to forgive and empathize with others as well as ourselves. Because our practice with the heart chakra is all about opening our hearts to the world, incorporating heart openers into your practice is perfect for this chakra! The hubby and I did lots of binds, camel, and wild thing for our practice this morning. . If you're into oils, put some lavendar or frankincense into a diffuser while you flow. . . #yoga #chakras #chakraseries #heartchakra #anahata #heartopener #wildthing #yogaathome #yogicouple #selfpractice #yogaphilosophy #education #camelpose #chestopener #sundayflow #kellycarmichaelyoga #tattooedyogi #lascruces #newmexico #yogainstructor #yogaisforeverybody #acceptance #forgiveness #selflove #mentalhealth #selfcare #balance #myyogajourney #myyogalife at Las Cruces, New Mexico

Flexibility is the key to so many things. When my body is flexible then automatically my mind also becomes more flexible. Flexibility allows for an ease and grace to move through your body as it must learn to shift with change. Grace is not rigid. If you are not flexible in your life you become irritable with your life. With flexibility you can grow. In life, when you stretch yourself beyond your perceived level of confidence and ability you accelerate your development of competence. Those with flexible hearts that can bend will never feel it actually break. Flexibility creates grace. Grace comes from being willing to be with what is. Grace comes from cultivating that flexibility to such an extent that you have space to move and that you have not allowed beliefs that construct rigidity of the mind. 🙏🏼✌🏻☺️ Back on the mat tonight @soulbarre 7:30pm people ask why I’m so flexible I do yoga that’s why im so flexible that’s why you should do yoga flexible in all aspects in your life!! See you on the mat yogis 🤸🏼‍♀️🧘🏼‍♀️🌈🙏🏼💗 thanks @miss_cadence for the pic 😘 at Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Al things back-bendy truly scare the hell out of me, and this is where I have found the most physical discomfort in yoga, but simultaneously the greatest high, as I conquer fears and find that bend, which ultimately makes my back feel so much better, and the rest of me feel even stronger 💪🏽 Today’s task for Day 3 of #phelanlucky #teamben22q13 is a special one to me because it’s all about a new skill or inversion pose & I was determined to nail this drop to wheel from handstand, & conquer my fears. More importantly though, we should talk about Ben, who has Phelan McDermid Syndrome & faces challenges everyday, & his mom Chardell, who said that she turned to inversions to help her gain strength to better care for her son. I am deeply humbled by her words and feel it’s important to stress this here: “The feeling of being upside down, of having our weight distributed in a different way, can throw us off & make us unsteady. Imagine if you felt that way every time you tried something new, even a little thing. The connection that makes things easy for you and I, the auto-pilot of you will, is not something that is easy for Ben. Despite that struggle, he doesn’t give up. He keeps trying over & over. He is truly an example of how we should all be. We can just keep trying no matter how many times we fall out, or get knocked down.” Ben, this one is for you, Buddy (and your mom too). Thank you for inspiring us every single day! 👊🏽😊 @stronger_for_ben @j.j.eyring @_balance_in_life_ . See ya later 🐊 #paulthewall .... but I’m still thankful for your support and your help in deepening my stretches 😉 AND Day 20/365 of #myhandstandjourney and Day 11/12 of #beyondflexibilityandfloat brings us #wheelpose #urdhvadhanurasana in #handstands with @yogiaubrey @lottasebzdayoga @gesticulate @jennyclise_ & @beyondyoga @cyogalife #handstandpractice #inversionpractice #dailypractice #letsshareyogilovetogether #resolutionhandstand2019 #teamresolutionhandstand2019 #teamresolutionhandstand365 #365handstand2019 @raymurse_yoga #heartopener #ibendsoidontbreak #getupsidedowneveryday #backbendlove #getflexy #myhomepractice #yogahomepractice #getbendy #inflexibleyogis #dropback #dropbacktowheel

Inversions were what drew me to yoga. For the first years of my practice I was all about advanced poses. Things changed a bit when I did my YTT. Our practices were more about the foundations and I realized simple poses were fundamental for a strong practice and just as hard. Since then I’ve been doing a lot more of the basics, paying more attention to what feels good and less to advanced stuff. For the past four months or so my practice has been very unconsistent. I lost a lot of flexibility and strength, and I feel discomfort in some areas. What used to be easy feels super hard, it’s like I am a beginner again. And while a simple practice is more than enough, I miss being strong and doing funky stuff. So while I was away from this app these past weeks I tried to rebuild a routine and learn to be patient as well. Being a beginner again is humbling. I also found it super awesome to practice just for me. Taking no video or photos. I somehow forgot that this is my yoga before everything else. I am not going anywhere with this but just an update. 😊Hope you’re all well. at Bretagne, France

El cuerpo es un espejo y lo sabe todo, guarda todas nuestras vivencias, emociones y recuerdos. Y las somatiza y refleja cómo aquello que aprieta en tu espalda, aquello que bloquea tus caderas o esa desconexión con cierta zona que no consigues activar. Y en esos espacios donde hay bloqueos es exactamente donde hay que mirar y estimular, porque es tu cuerpo enviándote señales y deseando que sepas leerlas. Porque son tensiones físicas pero reflejan tu estado emocional y viceversa, esas tensiones físicas determinan tu estado emocional. Es una conexión multiplexada, un circuito cerrado que va en ambas direcciones. Cuando hablo de movilidad hablo de esto, de moverte libre para sentirte libre. De moverte justo como necesitas en cada momento, con fuerza, flexibilidad y control en cada rango de movimiento. Vídeo de ayer grabado por @resetmovement en @coworkoutmadrid durante mi Workshop “Balance&Explore” 🤸🏼‍♀️ Gracias a tod@s las personas que me acompañaron haciendo esto posible! Es precioso como siendo tod@s diferentes conseguimos en un sólo día ser parte de la misma historia.

It’s the full wolf moon and this is a good time to do rituals focused on personal growth and spiritual development. I’m happy to announce I’m officially going to #bali at the end of February and I’ve been accepted onto my 200hour yoga teacher training with @jaiwellness I chose this school for its focus on yoga as a holistic fitness and the inclusion of Ayurveda as I feel that I’m walking the herbalism path. This is a big step for me as I’ve worked so hard to achieve this dream and now it’s a reality, the negative voices keep telling me I’m unworthy but I pause, take a deep breath and tell myself everything is going to be okay. I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty scared but I think this is a good thing.

Gazing at your reflection in the mirror is a powerful metaphor for yoga. Yoga is not a competitive sport. Yoga is a suppotive practice between who you are now and who you are becoming. Yoga is about listening to your heart speak. Often listening to your own heart feels like a terrifying place to be. Why? Because here you find your authentic self; the self you buried under other peoples needs and expectations. . . See you tomorrow at 8:30pm for 75 minute of #RestorativeYoga in #NewportBeach. . #ThirtyDayChallenge #Day20 #Yoga #Yogini #HealthCoach #Survivor #Author . 📸 @kn8 Yoga pants @KatharineStory at VIBES HOT YOGA

✨ Impossible situations can become possible miracles ✨ Robert H. Schuller . Today i woke up at 2 pm, because yesterday i was at the party and i've been there till today's morning (5 am) And i decided to do some chill yoga. I was thinking of the creative pic for this challenge, but... I was confused. It seemed like my creativity's left me😅😂 . So, i decided not to think about it at all and to go with the flow. The only thing i knew : i want to use the sofa as a prop. And then i tried heart opener and then that happened. My body gave me a cue.. LIFT YOU LEGS, COME ON🤗 And my feet touched my head, wow! It was a great surprise for my yoga journey. I am #FreeStyleYogis indeed😏 . Oh, i'm so happy that i've joined this challenge ♥️ . #backbend #heartopener #camelvariation #cobravariation #shoulderopener #yogapose #yogaeveryday at Ukraine

💃🏿 In some respects, my entire life has been a #SilentDisco. I was raised in a conservative Christian church that didn’t allow dancing. I remember putting together elaborate dance routines at age 8 or 9 (to “contemporary” Christian music no less!) and getting laughed at when family members caught me in the act. Fast forward to high school, when my parents eased up & let me go to all the dances. But Christian college was another matter. I was out to prove something then - double major, magma cum laude, class president, and all the extracurricular’s I could amass - all to prove (to whom, really?) that I could do what I wanted. Well, when we went to Tijuana to dance, the RA reported us, and I was put on probation. For dancing. Yes, just like Footloose. Yes, it still happens. *** 🎺 But being raised on the edge of pop culture in an alternative society proved to have deep lasting value. I learned how to sing & play 2 instruments before the age of 14. I cultivated the outsider’s eye that is critical for an artistic life. I found my secret ways to dance - alone, or swimming, or in “movement technique” class in college (yes, that’s what we had to call it!) I finally danced ballet & jazz when I was accepted into ACT for grad school, as well as yoga - which would years later become a second life for me. *** 🤸🏾‍♀️Studying the science of movement in #yogatherapy has affirmed what my girlish heart knew all along: Dance is like oxygen for the body & soul. We need to move to heal, to stay young, to live. I think everyone one of us is an absolute legend on the dance floor, and how you move means much much less then the need to move at all - whether you’re silent about it or not. *** #getyourfreakon #everythingisholy #preacherskid #sweatyourprayers at Rooftop Garden Bar

. I do not exist to impress the world. I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy, don’t know how but the way I learn from stories... I think, I found it... . . .
