This is such a challenging pose for me!! I couldn't do it during @cyogalab workshops in Sg, especially with tired shoulders and body, was feeling kind of exhausted that time.
Today, I finally manage to get into this pose with less tired shoulders, more open hearts and chest! Sometimes we just need to be patience with ourself and our body. It is a really deep chest & shoulder opener, I can feel my back cracks as I move my legs up higher. But it feels so good after ❤️❤️😊 It is always great to use a wall to deepen our backbend💗 #practicealliscoming#patience#timewillcome#believeinyourself
• com·pass /ˈkəmpəs/ • noun: an instrument containing a magnetized pointer that shows the direction of magnetic north and bearings from it • verb: to bring about, achieve • i like the verb definition. because i don't think it's about finding the right way. maybe there isn't even a "right" way. maybe there's more than one direction and it's more-than-ok to move along several different planes to find what feels right • move through your life in a way that "brings about" or "achieves" rather than tethering yourself to an arbitrary north • found compass for the first time today 🙏🏽 #ParivrttaSuryaYantrasana ➡️ swipe for a windy sunrise rooftop flow with @danielle_radulski 👯
Had an amazing training session this evening 😍 We haven’t been training partner skills together as much as we’d like recently due to other commitments, travel, and well you know, life 😂 but now re-inspired to practice more dynamic tempo skills more often! We finished off the session with corbets/casacades in lines, but our tempo was off - so we went back to timing/tempo drills before we hit a wall. And then everything lined up and felt great again. Especially in partner work, timing and tempo is everything - reestablishing the connection, the foundation, to progress is essential. Don’t ever be afraid to take a step back to take two steps forward 😉❤️

Since everything is a reflection of our minds.. everything can be changed by our minds. - Buddha 🙏🏼🌿✨
Naturally with a birthday coming up, the previous twelve months are swirling around in my head. "What have you done? What have you accomplished? Where is your private jet?" 😂 This is usually the point where I flip out and do something crazy to distract myself from dismay... however, I feel calm. Now is probably the first time I've looked back on the past year and not been disappointed in myself. I know where I'm going. Namaste. 😌✨✨
Peru has been nothing short of transformational & Machu Picchu did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to become friends with a local Shaman, Jesus, who has accompanied us on many adventures (& took this photo). The energy at this site is unreal. We got to visit some parts that were blocked off to the public - to meditate, to sit with nature, to soak up the power. We haven’t stopped smiling for the last two weeks. @russ.magic
Day two of #BalanceBabesII ✨🖤 is #SidePlank .
thank you ladies for playing 🙃 🙏🏼
Joining in and supporting lovely Sara @sarahuactive in this little challenge #1MonthSplits to keep track of my splits. I'm working on my straddle/middle splits as it's a really tough one. Never got to go further down to the ground than ⬆️. Also, I'll practice on my front splits and see if I can make improvements. I will dedicate one post each month to all the splits variations and let's see how that goes. Whoever wants to work on their splits, feel free to join in!
Also continuing to support amazing Steve @steveyoga in his journey of splits using this hashtag #stevesplitsby60 🙏

i’ve found myself thinking before that
this isn’t the way my life was supposed to go.
i wasn’t supposed to not finish my university degree,
get pregnant while living under my mom’s roof,
or have a baby in my early twenties.
but i’m truly a believer in the idea that
everything in life happens at the perfect time,
even when it doesn’t seem/feel like it.
that university suspension led to me to a path i needed
when i didn’t even know I was lost
+ a career i believe in + wholeheartedly enjoy.
the timing of my pregnancy strengthened me when i didn’t even know i was so weak.
+ my daughter shows me, every day, how to be mindful - a trait i especially need as i lay the foundation of her life + my entrepreneurial career in the wellness field.
i must always remember to accept the timing of circumstances,
since i’ll always understand why sooner or later.
As soon as our flight landed and we were allowed to take our seat belts off, I was stretching. It felt awful to not move for soooo long 😣
But those stretches felt heavenly!!
Then as soon as we got to the hotel and settled, I fell asleep hahaha 😂
To be fair, I'd only gotten 4.5 hours of sleep and didn't sleep at all during our travels to New Orleans.
Then we got up and went to Bourbon street. I was sooooo surprised at the street construction they have going on, I've never seen anything like it before!! But that sure doesn't stop people from partying are 7pm on a Monday hahaha 🤣🤣
Now I'm off to bed before more explorations tomorrow!! Night night ig 🌙🛌🌟😪
