Someone said: you have to go down a lot of wrong roads to find the right one. I believe there aren’t any wrong roads (unless violence or abuse is involved), only experiences which make you grow and discover more of yourself, make you more assertive and in touch with your inner voice. However long it takes, I want to think that they take you exactly where you’re supposed to be. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #lookwithin #lookinward #somewhereonlyweknow #lookaround #bemindful #nevernotmindful #raiseyourvibration #hippielife #wellnessblogger #womenpreneur #ohwowyes #beherenow #folkgreen #longroad #lensbible5k #breathedeeply #experiences #communitynotcompetition #whywearehere #depthobsessed #visualcrush #scottishborders #straightahead #enjoyyourself #innervoice at Scotland

Do you tend to focus more on the external or internal world ? Most of my life I’ve focused on external; house, job, looks, status, popularity. When I was younger literally the only thing I cared about was who liked me and how popular I was. That didn’t serve me well in college, I was pretty mis-directed by the time I got there. So I majored in the only thing I knew anything about... sports and the human body! That major turned out to be perfect for me in my life right now. I’m in a place where I am redefining what really matters. No longer focusing on the external but spending more time learning about my soul without any labels or anything to define me. My life purpose is still unknown to myself but I know that I am on the right path. I know that I live life delving into the depths and could think myself into dysfunction. I also know that I am made for something much bigger and that my heart is what defines me most. Do I feel lost right now in life? Absolutely. But that’s ok. I’m not willing to settle and I’m also not wanting to get out of my comfort zone. So I’m a little stuck. What does one do when they feel stuck? For me, I play with my dog or take a walk. I think the answers will come in time. For now, I’m going to listen to the quiet voice within and direct my thoughts and intentions to abundance, love, peace and gratitude. An unanalyzed life is not worth living. A great place to start if you are trying to dive deeper into your being and find your true purpose on this planet, is by starting with a book called “The Seat of The Soul”. Very transformative. If you’ve read it, what did you get out of it? #lookinward #theseatofthesoul #truehappinesslieswithin #relax #overthinker #atxfitness

Are you ready for it?! { You’re toxic too }. The words nobody wants to hear or tell themselves. But in order for us to grow + improve, it’s necessary. We are all toxic at some point in our relationships. Nobody is perfect. • • Identifying and correcting our own toxic behavior helps to connect to ourselves and partners. You have to want to learn about yourself to grow + make it work. • • Have you always been toxic or became that at some point in your relationship? Do you let your partners energy bring your down? Do you bring your partners down? Are you controlling? Have trust issues? Jealous? Negative? Angry? Judgmental? Needy? Nagging? Manipulative? Take no responsibility for your feelings? Make your partner feel like they walk on egg shells around you? Play mind games with them? Lie? Cheat? Self-medicate? Omit important information? Blame them for all your problems? Show no emotions? Ignore their needs? Humiliate them in public? Don’t have their back? Never fix problems? Constantly criticizing them? Don’t acknowledge their worth? How about just the tone of voice or word choice in how you respond to them in conversation? • • What we project is a reflection of our internal state - our insecurities, our needs, wants, etc. Look at your words and behaviors as a mirror. Sometimes we feel we can’t control them in toxic relationships dealing with narcissistic behaviors, addiction, gaslighting and the emotional damage it does and it brings out toxicity in us, because of the pain those things create. You start feeling like shit, the relationship hits low points, you start seeing your partner differently and that negative mindset projects out onto your partner. The energy exchange alone becomes destructive if the effort isn’t on both people to identify what needs to change within themselves first. • • ✖️Write out a list of the things you think make you toxic. Be honest with yourself. Under each one list why you think those are toxic, how they make you feel, how they make your partner/ex feel. If you’re in a relationship - do this with them. When did you start behaving that way. And what are the ways you can work on them. ✖️

“We do not use the body to get into a pose, we use the pose to get into the body” —The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga 🧘🏽‍♀️ Did you know that Hatha yoga, the asanas we consider yoga in the Western world, do not stand alone as a practice? The poses were designed with one purpose only...preparing the body for hours of meditation. 🧘🏽‍♀️ If you’ve ever been intimidated by the yoga poses you see on Instagram, know that looking the best in the pose was never the goal of the practice. Getting into a meditative state where you’re focused only on the present is.

Is anyone having a tough day? It happens. Of course. And I’ve been there more times than I would every wish on anyone, even the guy who cut me off in traffic today. But just so you know, I’ve gotten through it. I always get through it. And you will, too. Whether it’s personal, professional, or seemingly totally out of your control. I know you’ll come out swinging. And, I’m rooting for you. Anything I can do to help? #justlive #bethe1to #youcan #youwill #throughthestorm #icaniwill #youare #strongerthanyouthink

Working with a coach really can make your dreams come true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My dream is to run a retreat where people can escape the hustle and bustle of the city, press reset and learn the tools needed to thrive and live the life they desire when they return home. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Attendees would be given 1:1 coaching that could continue after the retreat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They would also have access to nature walks, yoga, meditation, massage and well-being talks if they wanted it (no enforced fun 😂). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having been on well-being breaks myself, I know the difference they can make - but I believe that combining that with coaching and perhaps some well-being/resilience training could really make a lasting change in the lives of so many. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your dreams and how do you turn them into reality? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dreamscometrue#selfreflection #selfdiscovery #lookinward #professionalcoach #careercoaching #lifecoaching #mindfulness #mindset #motivation #livedontjustexist #thoughtoftheday #timeisprecious #onelifeliveit #onelife #freeyourself #loveyourself #putyourselffirst #priorities #wellbeing #wellness #startliving #findyourhappy #empathy #selfcare #instagood #goalsetting #inspiration #bevulnerable #limitingbeliefs

💪INVERSION💪⁣ ⁣ Sometimes your life gets turned upside down. ⁣ ⁣ Something hits you out of left field, and you didn’t even see it coming.⁣ ⁣ Or, you did, there were clues, you just chose to dismiss them until they became so big that they were too in your face to ignore.⁣ ⁣ We are a constant work in progress and that is why it is so necessary to maintain your own daily practices of honoring yourself and staying tuned in to your higher resonance.⁣ ⁣ Practicing inversions allows us to find stillness; to keep in tune with our breath, even when the world is completely flipped; ⁣ the opposite of our expectations.⁣ ⁣ How we breath on the mat is how we relate to life.⁣ ⁣ Coming back to your core strength and knowing you can handle anything is liberating.⁣.. once you arrive there. ⁣ I have always been able to do handstands against a wall because of my natural upper body strength. ⁣ ⁣ The REAL challenge is finding that same strength in my ENTIRE body, ⁣ WHILE being in ⁣ perfect ALIGNMENT with SELF, ⁣ and using my core to ⁣ LIFT MYSELF UP⁣ And SUPPORT MYSELF⁣ while BREATHING FULL Agni Raj breaths ...⁣ that is what I am working towards.⁣ ⁣ #everydayrituals ⁣ ⁣ There will come a day when I trust myself enough to allow my inner strength to support me instead of the wall. ⁣ ⁣ I am not perfect.⁣ But, I LOVE my imperfections.⁣ They make me uniquely me.⁣ ⁣ And, in the process of consistently returning to that me, is where I find that strength.⁣ ⁣ How do you return to your inner strength each day?⁣ How are you supporting yourself?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #yogastrength #yogaforstrength #fuckityoga #innerstrength #returntoself #lookinward #selfloveyoga #handstandpractice #inversions #findyourcore #corestrength #breatheinlife #dailyyogapractice #travellifelove #travellife✈️ #travelingyogini #virtualyogateacher #yogateacherlife#alignmentyoga #chakraalignment #dailypractice #honorself #rituals #successhabits at Rottnest Island, Western Australia

Had a 💡moment reading this... It’s so crazy how we can long for something so much and we look for it everywhere outside ourselves rather than looking inward. I’ve been searching, thirsting... for a sense of comfort and peace lately, but I am really the only one who can truly create it for me. I am the one who can destroy it too.. #throughmyeyes11 #mentalhealthawareness #traumarecovery #ptsd #overcominganxietyanddepression #lookup #lookinward #selfreflection #introspection #selfcare #selflove #mma #wellness #grief #findingpeace #healing #forgiveness #selfforgiveness #selfacceptance

On my journey, I'm beginning to learn that all the answers I seek can be discovered inwardly. The most powerful source of validation, inspiration, compassion, and nurturing love can be found in a mirror. As giving kindness to myself becomes a natural habit, giving kindness to everyone I meet does as well. Growing in self-acceptance and self-love is a life changer friends, I highly recommend it. 😉 ✌ . . . . . . . . . 📷:@d_inspiration_vibes #selflove #selfacceptance #mirrorwork #meditationismedicine #yogaismedicine #whatyouseekisseekingyou #lookinward #kindness #compassion #validation #inspiration #investinyourself #meditation #yoga #spreadwellness #spreadlove #lovealways

Not that I've decided where I will lean in 2020, but I think I've started my morning off with the right kind of vibe. 🧘‍♀️🔥 I'm so thankful for this delicious coffee, for the pastry I had for breakfast, and for my short daily yoga and meditation practice. Even if there isn't time to sit for an hour in the morning (hello, me!) you absolutely reap the benefits by sitting for a few minutes and with regularity. When I am feeling go-go-go I remind myself this is really a training in patience and acceptance. Plus, I always feel better afterwards! . . #meditation #hope #feelthebern #yoga #reflections #gratitude #gratitudepractice #mindfulness #mindfulnesspractice #mindfullife #lookinward #daily #lovingkindness

There are times when silence is best, sitting amongst the ruins of past thought to ponder the real meaning of it all. It can be comforting, releasing its own unique energy, but we must turn our thoughts and focus inward critiquing our intent, especially if we want to advance in the game of life, and when those thoughts prove to be intense – unique to one person, we must apply nerve and energy to put all in perspective as to not mislead or manipulate a spirit that can so easily be broken. I often think our thoughts get in the way of our reality, limiting our ability to see the bigger picture, and therefore we miss out on life’s real beauty, especially that which stands before us. If we would only take a moment out of each day to listen – to meaningfully listen in silence to what our mind thinks, what our heart craves and what our soul desires, our ability to live more honestly and openly would transcend any intention, consciously or otherwise, of building walls. #silence #ruins #thepast #history #energy #ponder #meaning #comforting #focus #releasing #intent #lookinward #godeep #thoughts #feelings #love #perspectives #mind #energy #gameoflife #ability #reality #life #bigpicture #honesty #creativity #living #meditation #learning #growing #shaping

Transformation Tuesday Photo on the left was taken June 28th 2018 Photo on the left was taken February 19th 2019 7 months, 19 days. The photo on the left.. In New Brunswick at a Festival. I was in a loop hole of emotion.. 8 months before this photo, i moved away from the annapolis valley, where i have always lived for the first time. In the city with not many that ive known away from all I've ever known.. BUT for myself. To do shadow work, I set goals, aspirations, intending to do the progress process.. shadow work- reaching into the subconcious mind and purging it all to the fore front, from experiences of sexual, physical, emotional abuse, abandonment, all fled to the concious mind. All that i have bottled, created the broken sense of self on the outside. I was re experiencing these emotions, which created the dark spiral i intentionally walked into.. Which projected a lot of anger and sadness. expressing it in ways of envy, jealousy, rage - Feeling not whole/good enough. Going through a major shift of emotion.. toxicity surrounded me willingly and intentionally. By people ( mostly by communication error, unhealed wounds bringing upon projection) Environment (Dense energies, in the land, living space. ) foods (chemically processed) I was allowing myself to absorb and nourish myself with.. it was self sabotaging, by not sustaining myself in a healthy way I leaned on people thinking they were my people, those who i thought understood my soul. while also holding onto the pain of those i held onto, those who understood my soul but rowing their boat while trying to keep my own afloat. Which brought me to the photo on the right, Today. By just letting go. No longer holding on, Releasing the baggage of my own, and those I've ever carried. I feel lighter, more divinely guided, healthier in ways of nourishing my mind, body and soul. happier, by living more in my heart space than in my head. Learning new ways of coping.. Deep breath work Still experiencing the subconscious reprogramming but sustaining myself in a healthy way to continue the clearing process. My environment - In the midst of south America.

Tuesday Thoughts 💭 part 2 ~ throwback to the time Shanice and I (photographed is co-host Alice) met @chescaleigh on her book tour in SF. She was a delight, hilarious and gorgeous. And her book “Well that escalated quickly” is a fantastic book 👌🏾. But, Franchesca did something bold recently that stopped me in my tracks and opened my eyes, and that was to temporarily stop using social media to recharge and maintain mental and emotional wellness (see her last IG post). She ‘Looked Inward’ (dug deep into herself + took action) and this behavior is worthy of everyone’s time. The ‘Look Inward movement’ is real, some of us are already doing it but we all need to get there. Repost and tag your friends who you want to share the ‘Look Inward movement’ with. More info about the Look Inward movement soon 😊. . . #brunchintheevening #dopeblackpods #podsincolor #chescaleigh #selflove #lookinward #movement #bold #womeninspiringwomen #femaleempowerment #makerswomen #socialwork #girlgang #blackwomenrock #menshealth #stl #dallas #houston #sf #la #nyc #wellthatescalatedquickly #activist #bookstoread #tbt #throwbackthursday #podcastmovement #beauty #fashion #ootdfashion at Marines' Memorial Theatre

I know you’re all busy and don’t always have time to practice #selfcare which is why I started ‘The Mia Minute’ with my latest newsletter ⏰ • • So in case you missed it, here it is. One minute a month - a sort of prompt, if you will - to look inward and challenge your internal dialogue. Because self care isn’t just about yoga asana, it’s about the internal stuff too 🧘🏽‍♀️ • • I’d love to hear what you all think about this new video. It’s sort of paving the way for an exciting online course I’m working on (find out more about in the latest newsletter which is now linked in my bio) Let me know your thoughts in the comments below 👇🏼 • • #miatogo #yogateacher #yoga #yogavideo #yogaphilosophy #lookinward #blindspots #yogapractice #lifecoach at London, United Kingdom

Do you keep running into metaphorical dead ends? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You might hope everything will turn out for the best but if you haven’t figured out: 1) what “for the best” looks like for you; and ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2) your general plan for getting there, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ might you be heading down a road to no where (or at least to no where you wanted to go)? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.” Lewis Carroll ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not having a direction, not having a goal, not knowing where you are going, it’s all the same. You go nowhere. You can never get “there,” because you have no idea where “there” is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Where are you going and what help do you need to get there? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #reflection #selfreflection #selfdiscovery #lookinward #professionalcoach #careercoaching #lifecoaching #mindfulness #mindset #motivation #livedontjustexist #thoughtoftheday #timeisprecious #onelifeliveit #onelife #freeyourself #loveyourself #putyourselffirst #priorities #wellbeing #wellness #startliving #findyourhappy #empathy #selfcare #instagood #goalsetting #inspiration #bevulnerable #limitingbeliefs

The downtime that the brain gets during unstructured play helps children with critical thinking, divergent thinking and consequential thinking. That is because, when the brain is under stimulated, it looks for stimulation thereby boosting creativity. That helps them solve problems and understand the sequences of their actions and subsequent results in a better way. . . No wonder some of our best ideas come when we're in the shower or when we go for walk in the woods. So, even for adults, a little existential boredom is good in a lot of ways! . . #DownTime #UnstructuredPlay #BoredomleadstoBrilliance #BringbackBoredom #ChooseUnbusy #LookInward #ProblemSolving #Creativity #ConsequentialThinking #DivergentThinking #CriticalThinking

I can’t wait to watch this #documentary on #netflix - #healdocumentary. I started going to #therapy when I was 19 years old. I grew up witnessing and experiencing a LOT of #traumatizing scenarios. No child should have to go through these things but every #parent just does the best they can with the #knowledge they have. I knew at a very young age something wasn’t right and I never wanted to carry on these #dysfunctionalfamily #issues. I learned #reparenting; to #acceptmyself, #forgivemyself and most importantly #forgive my well-intentioned parents. It wasn’t easy to #heal but I feel strongly that I did it in time for my child to experience something #different. And perhaps now she can go on to do even better than I ever could...for her own #children. #fullcircle #change #changeispossible #lookinward #dobetter #anyonecanchange #healyourheart #momtruth #motherhoodrising #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood

You are such a strong individual even if you don't know it yet 💪 We tend to need other people to tell us what we need to hear to cope or deal with whatever we are going through. But whatever they tell us, they evoke the strength from within us. That means that we already had that power inside of us. Imagine if we could skip the long conversations and the embarrassment or guilt of including other people in each one of our issues, and just skip ahead to being strong in any situation. Imagine how much happier and productive we could all be if we never complained and just set better boundaries. 🤔 #yourestrong #findyourstrength #useyourtimewisely #lookinward #livestrong #bestrong #nocomplaints #nopainnogain #strongest

I always had to strive for balance. But not this time. The feeling of surrender, lightness, love and being part of a whole... Being a witness to every changing moment as you breathe and accepting your fear of falling down (& trusting that he will always find a way to soften it:) ). Even if you fall, you won’t regret trying! ✨ Isn’t it valid in life, too? #widenyourmatzone at Maslak, Istanbul, Turkey

QUICK BITE MONDAY | think of #anger as a “gateway” to the exploration of emotions. Anger can lead to negative behavior, BUT it can also lead to #change. The key is to recognize that anger is not at the root of your emotions, it’s usually sadness then take it one step further and acknowledge why you’re sad; it can be a game changer 😏 . . . #brunchintheevening #quickbitemonday #motivationmonday #emotions #mentalhealth #communication #nyc #la #sf #chicago #socialwork #therapy #selfcontrol #happyvalentinesday #selflove #selfacceptance #kansascity #stl #navyveteran #veteran #anger #lookinward #selfcaresunday
