I never want to forget how this entire experience made me feel. I never want to take for granted how lucky I am or under express my gratitude for the amount I have learned about myself and about life by being apart of this amazing Muay Thai retreat, in the most magical country I’ve spent time in, with 27 beautiful people from all over the world. I am by no means financially rich but when it comes to opportunity, adventure, and participation in my own life I feel incredibly wealthy. I’ve made wonderful connections with new friends and with the universe. New doors have opened for me to walk through. I feel the closest to my true self than ever in my life. I feel cleansed, refreshed and excited for life. I’ve had a different kind of exposure to how powerful and contagious energy is. I have felt love in every sense of the word. I am speechless when I think of how far my life has come in just two and a half years and these last twelve days have confirmed in my heart that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and moving in a forward direction. What an astonishing journey this life is when I am fully participating in it. #grateful#martialarts#muaythai#muaythaigirls#love#lighttheworldonfire#beauty#costarica#puravida#growth#challenge

The first book I read was left outside my cell while I was housed in a Youth Authority in Chino Ca. YTS. There was a note in it that said God Bless and that was it. Prior to that I had read a bit. I read the Bible and skimmed two other motivational-self help books. I have a collection of books that keeps growing and growing. Reading has shaped a lot of who I am. The treasures found in books are gems no one can take from us. Both Reading and Writing have impacted my life. Btw I’m almost done with my first book of the year. I have to be ready for this upcoming month with a new one. TB to me chillin at the beach in Costa Rica. A small snail was crawling about 5 feet in front of me on top of the white sand we both shared. While the clear blue waves crashed right in front of both of us. Sippin on a coconut and reading a book about screen writing. Oh and I had blond hair. What a beautiful feeling to feel GOD. ☀️🌴🐠📔🌊 #CostRica#PuraVida#Books#ReadersAreLeaders

NEW YORK CITY!!! We just can’t stay away from you! .
@erinkellyart and @casa_colibri are headed to @pureyogaofficial WEST in early Oct for FOUR workshops! .
Want more info or to snag your limited spot? Check the schedule page on our website (link in bio). See you there!
This week (and maybe more) will be all about Wheel Pose or Urdhva Dhanurasana.
Wheel is a fully body pose, so make sure to warm up the shoulders, spine, hip flexors, quads, and wrists!
Tomorrow we will show the full entrance to Wheel, but the first few steps involve a Bridge Pose.
You might as well set up your Bridge for success.
Things to Remember:
. -Feet hip distance/parallel or maybe slightly pigeon toed since then tend to flare out upon lift off.
-Tickle the heels then back them away a few inches.
-TUCK the tailbone to engage the core and decrease the extension in the lumbar spine.
-Root down through all 4 corners of the feet, especially the inner edges.
-Use the press of the feet and robot arms to lift the hips and chest, keeping a tuck of the tail.
-Walk the shoulders under one at a time and clasp hands OR grab the outer edges of the mat and pull down and away.
-Keep the head nice and still to protect the neck and gently press the back of the skull to to the mat while still leaving space between the chin and collarbone.
-Knees have a tendency to splay out wide. Keep them tracking over ankles and almost imagine the knees are pulling away from the body in the same direction as the toes.
-Feet simultaneously pull in toward sit bones to engage the hamstrings while pressing away to lift the hips higher.
-Puff up through the chest and tone but don’t clench the glutes.

Y así, con este precioso atardecer me despido de la que ya se ha convertido en mi ciudad favorita de Italia: Nápoles es vibrante, auténtica y lo mejor, se disfruta con los cinco sentidos 😍 🇮🇹
