I don't teach yoga to be the best at every posture, I don't Primal and movement so that you can do the best cartwheel, I don't Personal train anymore so that you can lose ten kilos.
I teach yoga to help you get to know you and learn to love the body, mind and soul. Through mindful eating and moving how you feel like you need to everyday
I teach movement and primal so that you can have fun and bring back a sense of play in a world that has held you in boundaries for so long
I personal train people now based on how they walk in the door. If you are stressed, anxious, tired and flat I train based on moves to help you smile, nurture your body and give it some kindness rather than push. However if you come in feeling. Sluggish, flat, having low self worth or just need to move, then damn right.. we will move, sweat and play
All of the above lead me to this photo. I used to be all ego, constantly in my head about how to train, how to look, what to eat, what's right, what's wrong, train from a plan, drill for people's goals , now I have learnt to be quiet. .
My gorgeous mum said to me last night, you're very deep these days, see it as I've learnt to listen and pause. I'm trying more and more to become the observer of feelings and emotions so that I can check in with my response and make sure it's filled with kindness and love not only to others but also myself.
I have learnt to love , I never knew how wholly to as I never had it for myself. I would rip this photo apart only up to two years ago and be so critical of my body, now i see it with so much love and respect. It's just a body, it's inside where the magic Happens 🙏🏻❤️

🌱🍃 ‘I water you. You water me. We grow together.’ 💙 Forever trading tricks & monkeying around with the badass @rasalila 🌞 This was our first attempt. It wasn’t what we were expecting but it looked & felt pretty cool. We tried it again right after & it just wasn’t happening. Soo here’s one magical moment marked in time for now. ✌️

Fill the soul with acceptance and experience happiness at its purest...
@hannz28 " I love my body's ability to keep up with me! This body consistently handles my busy, exhausting schedule with rarely a complaint. It's also resilient and puts up with me sometimes putting it down or treating it unfairly and yet it never fails to show up for me day in and day out. “ | Read more about Hannah on our website bodylovesoulpurpose.com (🔗 in bio) |
I'm an extremely hilarious, sarcastic 27-year-old Californian, who's really a New Yorker at heart (lived there for 2 years after collage). I currently reside in San Francisco, CA and work on diversity and inclusion initiatives for a large tech company.
I enjoy the simple things in life - reading, travel, laughing, wine - and often can be found hanging out with friends at the park or watching sports (Go Steelers!). 💛🖤
My dreams are big and passions expansive, but my main focus this upcoming year is to work at living more in the present... at leaning into what feels right and good. I read a great quote recently that I've added on a sticky note to my desk and next to my bed - "Ask yourself - on an ongoing basis - what you truly need in a given moment in order to then provide that for yourself.” To wake-up each day and be able to live that would be a true gift. ✨
Thank you Hannah for your contribution to our Sister Spotlight and your beautiful contributions to the world!

i’ve read that there is a hierarchy in relationships (you and your child, yoga teacher, parent, cat, homeless guy you smile at everyday, manager, roommate, lover) and friendships are stashed towards the bottom. well f that structure, my secret is everyone floats neutrally. our relationships are the most transformational element in our lives, they teach you who you are, and influence your future you. I have relationships which naturally stay close because they naturally go deeper than our surfaces, I have ones I let go of.. they need to grow without my active energy, got a low key stack that show up if I ping them, some cross my mind often but just stay up in there for reflection, a bunch pop back to my inbox without warning and cause me to toss my coffee into the universe- these are super intriguing, and ones I hope will come back and say hi, at least... once time and space does what it’s good at.
timing is everything. our combined energy at a given time is everything, this is where we must constantly learn & adjust. on monday i am someone's helpful healer and on thursday i’m another person’s pain in the ass. I've been observing my relationships quite curiously. one door will close and I don't even have the chance to mourn, as another door will open. is this a numbers game? or is this a lifestyle choice? happiness is certainly a choice. I never feel full. my curiosity wants to keep creating connections. i also never know when I should put in a little more effort here or there. after a few dark dark relationship moments, i did the internal work and stopped chasing, stopped pushing. those who can stick around when the conversations get messy, will, when they are ready- which also could be never, so tell your expectations to go fuck off. be VERY open to surprises. i love when doors are constantly swinging, fresh energy back and forth. I'm always creating dots around the world but am I connecting them? do I need to? this is me processing joy by the way. I think people typically only stop and do the work to process pain, especially out loud. this is me processing joy. #explore#yoga#inspire#ecuador 📸@pamelajaimes
Happy Friday! My weekend looks like ❤️ family time, yoga classes, açaí bowls, and photography 📸 send me a DM if your interested in setting up a shoot, I’m still running some New Years specials ✨ .
Several glasses of Moët in on the most stunning black sand beach. I was still aching from climbing a mountain, sinking in the wet sands, and half cut (yeah, I’m a yogi that likes a drink... and what?!), but I think that look on my face sums it. A true honest smile, because the evening this photo was taken is a memory I will smile about forever. Spent with my brothers, their families and our beautiful Mum. We drank, laughed, and played as the sun set. Life is too short to take so seriously, so go play.

Stretch, grow, expand. Explore your boundaries 🌚✨ #happyfriday
