Get outside. Be grateful. Feel the sun on your face. Tell someone you love them!! Live each day to its FULLEST!! I woke up yesterday to an emergency alarm that a ballistic missile was inbound to my home state of Hawaii. Lots of thoughts run through your head when you think the end could potentially be near. Don’t wait to live out loud, be authentically you, shine bright, do what scares you, be thankful for every breath, share a hug, stare at the stars. Each moment is precious. Namaste beautiful friends!! Grateful for THIS day and all you incredible souls! 🙏🏼💚🌺

Choose happiness. Choose positivity. We either make ourselves miserable or make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. It’s about perspective and how you look at the challenges laid before you. Choose to rise above, learn all you can along the journey, and live in the light. Namaste beautiful people! 🙏🏼💚🌺
Did my first press to high extended H2H today and I gotta say my base was solid! How old do you think this girl is 8 and she is basing a full grown man on her tip toes no less. She should be apart of the next @acroarmy for sure! 🤣
If you are around the Fayetteville area tonight come join our acro party! Message me for details.

Understand that somethings are not meant to be understood. We can quickly jump to judge other people's decisions or actions, but you just have to know that their path is theirs and you have your own. One of my favorite sayings is "you do you" because it's just so accurate...let every person do what sets their soul on fire and be able to do it free of judgement. Live openly and spread love. Namaste! 🙏🏼💚🌺

@jenniferpierotti giving a sneak peak of @glyderapparel pieces that could be in your next box. 😍
Enjoy all the things that make you you! Seek them as far as they go so they may become more than just a secret love. Find them, capture them, and let them become a part of your renaissance. Sing the highest note, swim the deepest oceans...whatever it is, be you and do it to the fullest! Namaste friends!! 🙏🏼💚🌺
My class tonight is CANCELLED because everyone should be playing in the snow
☃️ But you have 2 chances to practice with me this weekend @charlotteyoga ParkTowne: Saturday 4pm & Sunday 9:30am.
❄️Also I just walked to a yoga class and stopped on the tracks on the way back. Well if you want to see what reality is like trying to use self timer to take a #snowga shot while your phone is getting covered in the snow, swipe ⬅️ (it’s not always as easy as yogis make it look all over social media, so don’t take yourself too seriously and have a little fun today!)

I thought I could do this challege via videos ‘cause videos don’t make me get as oc as photos do.. I did take videos last week buttt it didn't feel ready so I haven't been able to post daily. . *working on ittt. 😅 hopefully next year I’ll have figured this out better that it won’t take as much time!😁 I feel like press is coming!! I know, I know! no expectations, but I’ll keep working on it!😁 I’ll keep strengthening my core for those transitions and exits! And I'll befriend anjenayasanas and hips pa more for the day 3! Hopefully when I do this sequence next year, I’ll have better awareness and control that I can execute without messing up my hair too much. 😝

Hello again Instagram 👋🏼 I took a little break over Christmas and New Years to give myself space to be in the real world with no distractions and it was amazing. I’m always extra mindful during the new year transition about what I’m working towards and creating and have put a few new ideas into motion - so here’s my news for those of you who follow me on your mats. I try to make a point of always living in alignment with my core values, even if it feels like I need to walk over a few eggshells to get there. So, if you join me this year, your getting my all ❤️ PC @taigenandreayoga
Discomfort usually triggers a fear response in me
What if I fail, what if I'm not good enough, what if it's all not perfect
Well there is nothing that actually is PERFECT
Other than the way things actually are
To stand in complete unknowing (discomfort) without it turning to fear is the mark of someone willing to grow
My teacher @yogidunx taught me this and I think about it often
ABHAYA is the Sanskrit word for staying in this discomfort long enough to know that it means you are growing, changing and evolving
Knowing this, I almost now seek a bit of discomfort to keep things spicy
You don't need a mat to practice yoga 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Bird of Paradise pose: Port Louis, Mauritius
The World Is My Yoga Mat = Yoga by Karen + Photography by Ben 🌞 Karen: This was in a historic immigration depot in Port Louis, Mauritius. I like that we've done this pose a handful of times because it's allowed me to see my progress. That leg is getting more and more vertical! 📷 Ben: I saw a frame and wanted to put Karen within it. I had to pick a pose that didn't have anything interesting going on in the bottom 3rd and I think this works out nicely. I also like the Karen almost blends in color-wise, yet the brightness of her skin pops out within the darker surroundings.

• PASSION •
The burning question is, ‘How do I find my passion in life?’ I did not know what passion was until I started to ask questions. I thought that surely there must be more to life than just going through the motions: wake up, get the kids ready for school, get ready for work, work out, run errands, go to work, have lunch, pick up kids from school, come home from work, make supper, watch TV, go to bed… I was living for everyone else.
🙇🏼♀️I wasn’t living for me and I started to become resentful. Sound vaguely familiar?
🙇🏼♀️However, my resentment didn’t lie with everyone else, but with me. I started to resent myself because I wasn’t doing anything that was important to me. Whatever it was that I cared about was always on the back burner because a) I thought I didn’t have time, b) I thought everyone would think it was stupid and c) I thought that everyone else’s needs and wants should definitely come before my own.
🧘🏼♀️My passion was there, but so well hidden, so covered by other ‘important’ things and responsibilities, that it didn’t have a chance to ‘breathe’.
😍And the same could be true for yours. If it could breathe, if you were allowed to come up for air, then you would see that there is energy, amazingly strong energy, in your passion - it just needs to be set free.
