People can say things to you, and they can do things to you... but you decide what to believe about yourself. Believe things that feel good and that serve you. Sending you love this Sunday ❤️

Kapotasna is one of those postures that has eluded me for years and I FINALLY found my heels. 🎉 It was choppy and messy and done without any assistance but it was mine ❤️ I am a home practice kinda gal and on occasion take workshops but never practice in a studio anymore. That’s the beautiful thing about yoga - you can practice anywhere without anyone or anything. I’ll just be over here still in awe that I did it. #yogahigh
Did you do something today that took you out of your comfort zone? Comment with 😊 if you did.
Full disclosure: this is the first time I’ve ever tried this pose. Did I do ok?
Day 7 #UpsideDownIsComingToTown is Fire Hydrant Pose. Are you practicing with @upsidedownmama on @omstarsofficial for this challenge?

"I can be a really difficult person to have a close relationship with. I’m brutally honest in all situations and i call people on their shit. -
I’m not trying to be mean but it irritates me tremendously when i see people deliberately refusing to grow.
When i can see potencial but it seems they just say ‘nah, no thanks, I’m good!’ I do this because I’m a tough love kinda gal. I want the same in return. I want someone to push me. I want to be called on my shit. -
Growth is never fun. It never gets easier. It’s painful and terrible, often times. I know because I’ve done a lot of it in my life and I’m thankful to everyone who has helped me whether it be sticking by my side or walking out the door because those decisions affected my life and i often believe that the ones that have bailed, have done even more for me than the ones that have stayed. They set me free. -
It’s really tough to grow when you have the same humans around for years and years or you’re in the same location. -
Growth often requires change, because it’s difficult to find humans that will also be interested in growing and especially at the same rate that you want to grow. -
It’s really nice to have friends, it’s comfortable and fun, but it doesn’t necessarily lead to growth. Often times our friends can be our biggest hinderances of growth because they pacify us and allow us to waste time ‘hanging out’ instead of perhaps being ‘bored’ and therefore forced to work harder on your craft or find one in the first place. I’ve heard the expression that ‘it’s lonely at the top’ and i think that’s just because no one else felt like working as hard as those who’ve made it that far have. -
A bit of a rant but 🤷🏼♀️ wearing my NYE onesie that Pablo’s called my 80’s space suit.🤤🤖" #yoga#nye#nofilter#itiswhatitis#growth#mindfulness#mindful#awareness#aware#present#heightenedawareness#goals#achieve#yogapants#yogafit#yogafun#yogainspiration#yogaeverydamnday#yogalover#yogafam#yogaposes#yogapose#yogini#yogisofinstagram#austintx#austintexas#jointhecrew
F L O W ... like water, let it go. Feel how your body wants to move. Listen to it. Your body has secrets it’s trying to release. Unlock yourself 💧💦🌊 As water moon sign, it’s important for me to near water, feel it’s fluidity and cleansing nature. Let’s protect this precious resource on our cosmic home. 🌎🌍🌏 Day 4 #yogaforearth#yogaChallenge
Were you that kid who walked around in your backbend? Like, literally- dropped into a backbend and walked around on your hands and feet inverted? I know not everyone did that, but I remember other kids doing it and I used to do it too. It’s funny how discovering different ways to move is an inherent trait to children, but adults worry (not unrightfully so, necessarily). Adults will often tell kids to stop doing what they’re doing for either the sake of safety or their own reputation in public. Thus, the evolution of our movement has been put on a controlled path of sitting, standing, and laying down. This is one reason my movement practice is so valuable to me. Because the human body has the potential for some pretty cool positions and movements! Though I try not to get to “woo”, I have personally experienced that the various places in the body are containers for thoughts (yes, thoughts- not verbal brain word thought), stories, and possible experiences. I know that being open to listening to those messages helps me to be more who I am. It’s not too late for anyone, ever, to just start moving differently and to experience that. Ok. That was my proper tangent for the day. Peace out. #yogini#yogawoman#yogavideo#yogateacher#prana#apana#dristi#movement#dance#goddess#goddessflow#yogaphotography#namasteasfuck#dreamy#yogaeveryday#yogaeverydamnday#meditaion#bepresent#breathe#backbend#chakrasana#urdhvadhanurasana
