Change can take time and requires you to put in work. Seems overwhelming... but all you have to do is show up. Be an active participant in your life working towards what you want. •
Post Class Practice. Extending the top leg in flying pigeon seemed impossible to me not too long ago. Now I can feel the shifts necessary to get there. I was getting tired or else I would’ve tried again. So close I can feel it! 🙌 it helped that @victoria.arvizu had our hips feeling loose. #bachatahips 😂
Some days we're not so strong. The shadows seem to be darker & the self talk seems a lil louder. Sadness, fear, anxiety & worry sneak in like an uninvited guest. Maybe we'll make it to the mat, maybe we won't. Maybe we'll feel the fog lift, maybe we won't. So some days...I simply sit, and breathe...taking it one calming exhalation at a time. #beyoubravely#wednesdaywisdom#bekind

Never be afraid.
Of failing, of what people may think, of what they may say, of not getting that job, not marrying that spouse, not getting that promotion, not achieving that body, not conquering that fear.
Instead, be resilient. Maybe not to everything planning out exactly how it is in your head, but taking steps towards that goal each and every single day. No matter how small or big, it’s still a step. And it’s getting closer. In December I took a leap and walked into a studio having absolutely NO idea what the hell I was doing, pressed play on my music, cranked that volume, got my ass up onto that bike and winged it. Now, I’m going to be honest with you- I was f*ing terrified, nervous, uncomfortable and a little embarrassed. A little over one month later, a gallon of sweat, tears, endless hours of practice, plenty of self doubt and equally as much hard work, here I am. I got the job, I am the instructor and I made it happen. THIS is EXACTLY what life is about. Join me at @motioncycling every Tuesday at 1230pm and Wednesday 7:30am to see what dreams are made of✨ #motioncycling

We are always more afraid than we wish to be, but we can always be braver than we expect.
- Robert Jordan, The Wheel of Time
Fear is a strange thing. I have feared so much through this life of mine. Starting a new school. Walking into the lunch hall worried I had nobody to sit next to. Confrontation. Opinion. Losing people. Walking down steep hills. Spiders. The dark. Toes sticking out of the duvet. Noises in the night. Ghosts. Flying. Travelling alone. Starting University. Exams. Failure. Inversions. Embarrassing myself. Rejection. Death.
The list of fears that have, and are, living inside of me are endless. When I look at how much of my life was, and is, halted by FEAR, instead of being driven by EXCITEMENT, it’s just ridiculous! Will that ever change? I have no idea 🤷🏻♀️! All I know is that some fears are long gone, but new ones always come to the surface. I’ve never been ‘care-free’ or impulsive. I over think every single thing I do and always approach things with caution 🤷🏻♀️ maybe that’s why my asana progress has always been slow and steady. But there is nothing wrong with who I am, and I will most likely always be this person. If I always have fear that’s okay. I won’t pretend otherwise. I won’t write words about being this purely magic being with glitter running through my veins. I am made of flesh and blood and bones and fears. I am what I am. I try to face fear each day, and do so every time I get on my mat. And sometimes, just sometimes, I create my own magic there ✨. This wheel right here... I used to be PETRIFIED of it. I would shout for my teacher to help me down when I was nowhere near as high as I am here. Now? There is no fear at all. I still approach it slowly and cautiously, but through mindfulness rather than fear.
Maybe one day I will be able to approach a spider 🕷 in the same way!
Do you have fears? Have you overcome any?

Where’s the men??? 80% of all ad respondents for yoga are women. Men can do yoga too. Actually, men can do Inversions, arm balances, floats, and jumps with greater ease than women. Can’t touch your toes you say? Guess what, most people coming to class can’t either. That’s why you come to yoga to gain flexibility. It’s not a pre-requisite. It’s a practice.
Who wants to do some yoga @sincityyoga? Raise your hands men!

-Who hurt you?
-My own expectations.
It is said that unmet expectations is one of the biggest killers of relationships, but it is also one of the biggest killers of our sanity. .
I had this whole plan for Christmas that I was super excited about and I hyped it up to the kids. We didn't do presents.. instead we were hitting the road to spend time with someone special. We jumped through several hoops for several hours, only to be told that there was a mistake and we had to go home. It felt like my heart shattered in a million pieces. The kids were crying "but that's all we wanted for Christmas" 💔 When I got in the car, I turned on the radio and Mariah's All I Want For Christmas comes on... I love you Mariah, but you're hitting a tender spot... I cried to the point that my soul felt like it was sucked out.. I felt lifeless. And that's when my inner guide told me: my expectations for the day is what is causing my pain. The situation is nothing new. I live this daily. But I didn't allow for any flexibility for variances to the plan I had in my head that when something came along to knock it over I couldn't deal. No matter how delicious a plan may seem, let it go and go with the flow. Lesson learned. 🙏🏽 .

This new year I’m focusing on connection ✨ One of the main things that brought me happiness last year was all the amazing opportunities I had through something as simple as connecting with people, the universe, myself and my practice.
So I haven’t set any goals or resolutions for myself. I actually never do because I feel like it puts pressure and a deadline, which might be amazing for a work schedule but not so great for life. At least for me. I believe things happen for a reason, and we should be our best selves all the time. When something is right for you it will fall into place rather than forcing it. Putting less expectations on myself is actually how I stopped biting my nails and lost weight 😉 Living this way has opened up way more opportunity for me and made me so much lighter, healthier and happier.
Grateful for this new connection @andreitalevin ❤️ You are just so wonderful, I’m excited for more yogi adventures!
I dreamt and wondered what’s it like when someday I’d be practicing the third series of Ashtanga yoga. It was the end of 2014 after finishing my 200hr teacher training when the thought lingered in my mind.
In September of last year, my teacher granted me the first two poses in third series and I thought I just crossed the finish line in my race. Well, was it really the case? No. Not at all. I realized it’s just the beginning of something new. Something new to open, to explore, to help me grow physically and mentally... like it has always been since the first day I showed up on my mat. Of course it’s harder than I can ever imagine, but it’s the same feeling I had when I did my first pose in the second series, or in primary. Scary, unknown, intimidating, challenging.. but it only makes me a better version of myself every time I face those poses as I get stronger along the ways. No finish line, no medals or trophies waiting for me every time I move on to the next pose or series however long it takes. It’s a lifetime journey in my book. At the end of the day, it’s not about the poses or series after all, it’s about how grateful I am being in this journey with everything and everyone that comes with this practice. 🙏🏽♥️
Prendre le temps, une respiration à la fois. La conscience, c’est tellement libérateur. C’est en prenant le temps d’avoir le focus sur notre propre existence qu’on revient à la source de ce qui est vraiment important. C’est de prendre conscience de notre présence dans l’espace temps pour remplir son coeur de gratitude pour la chance qu’on a de simplement être.
I’m all moved into my new home!! ♥️🙈 this space is beautiful, the energy is different and my heart is healing with all the good vibes and people I surround myself with everyday. I’m in love with the Black and white stallion paintings on my wall by @e_wallart ♥️ I’ve been searching everywhere for something like that and this was perfect for my new home. You’re going to be seeing so much of me in this new space. I’m back friends! 🧜🏽♀️|

When I first moved to America/ NYC, my dad and I stayed in a hotel on Wall Street. We knew nothing about NYC and were pretty much tourist. As we explored the financial district, I remember saying to myself, I wished I could live here. Something about the seaport drew me to it. Obviously, I couldn’t afford living there because apartments were so expensive. 7 years later, I’m living in my dream house in my favorite neighborhood. I can’t tell you, how God has been so good to me. My prayers have never gone unanswered and He is the reason for All That i Am. #newbeginning#apartmentgoals

I love to do these camel rounds after warming up to get ready for some deep Kapotasana and Dhanurasana action! Took the puppy stretch to a new bound level too!

We’ve been practicing in a beautiful little beach Shala that has a mirror on one wall. Mirrors are fascinating to use during practice— so useful for alignment. But for my everyday practice, no mirrors. I want to use my time on the mat to connect with my source, not my reflection.
This mirror is especially beautiful as it’s reflecting my wife, @vesic_jelena 💙

I open my eyes every day and watch the sunrise as much as I can. Some how sun-gazing just fuels my soul in an unexplainable way but it is deep and profound. I can see the same light in people like @chefahki Beyond her exterior grace and beauty her soul is rich and her passion to help people heal radiates from her pores. We meet before briefly sharing health and wellness on the news together in Atlanta but this time was much deeper. I got to watch her shine at @agapespiritualcenter via a plant based food demo with @revarlene1 and the next day she came over to practice yoga with me and we had an amazing time catching up and sharing the blessings and lessons we've learned being long term vegans and advocates for self-healing to promote worldwide change. Its so refreshing to meet women like her value sisterhood over separation and conversation vs competition. To me this is how we promote sustainable change. Building a healthier world becomes easier when communication starts and judgment and separation stops. I LOVE your shine @chefahki#GETLOVEDUP#GODISLOVE💫

Are your twists all about pulling and squeezing to bind your hand behind your back? Do you know how much you can twist without using your hands to get there? Try this out, as always much harder than it looks -and much more gentle to your shoulders and back. The more I learn about movement, trying new angles out, the more I understand how I got my injuries. Now it's all about strengthening all the week spots so my body can last my lifetime through. #movewithease#onebreathatatime#yoga#sustainableyoga
