The first and most important part of my morning routine is NOT yoga. 😬 ⁣ ⁣ (Hint: ☕️)⁣ ⁣ It’s easy to loose motivation when we aren’t quite sure what day it is, and don’t have to get up and scurry out the door to get to the office (...or the yoga studio in my case). ⁣ ⁣ Did your self-care routine start out strong in quarantine, then took a nosedive? 😞⁣ ⁣ You’re not alone. ⁣ ⁣ The longer this has gone on the harder it is to accept that this is life as we know it right now. I don’t know about you but I’ve definitely looked for ways to numb this painful reality (🍷🍷🍷), but you know what...I feel SO MUCH better when I’m treating my body well and—this is key—STAYING ON A SCHEDULE!⁣ ⁣ So, today I made a commitment...to literally put yoga classes on my calendar. 🗓 ⁣ ⁣ While in theory I’m doing more yoga than ever as I’m teaching 5 classes per week and demoing virtually (pun intended🤪🤦🏻‍♀️) every pose, it doesn’t have the same effect as taking a class. ⁣ ⁣ When I teach, my focus isn’t at all on me or my breath, it’s on my students.💞 That however inevitably makes the experience much less meditative. ⁣ ⁣ Believe me, I FREAKIN’ LOVE every minute of teaching, but it can be mentally (...and now physically) exhausting and leave me feeling depleted. ⁣ ⁣ So, I opened my Google calendar 👩🏻‍💻 and made sure I had at least 3 yoga classes on my books for next week to take. ⁣ ⁣ I kicked it off today at 9:30am with @ardencicada’s 🔥Core Yoga Flow🔥 live from Puerto Rico. ⁣ ⁣ Here’s a bit of her bombass flow in super-speed! ⁣ ⁣ I felt amazing after, and accomplished as it was only 10:30am and I’d already moved my body for an hour. 🏆 ⁣ ⁣ I’m revamping my online class schedule and will be sending out all the info to inboxes Sunday night. 📥🎉⁣ ⁣ I’m taking weekends off for the ⛱summer⛱ BUT you can still practice with me via my ✴️Weekend Warrior Recorded Class✴️ offering.⁣ ⁣ You’ll have access to this week’s sequence from 8pm Friday (tomorrow!) until 8pm Sunday so you can practice as many times as you like.🤸🏻‍♀️⁣ ⁣ Link in profile to signup! 🤗⁣ ⁣ Not on my contact list? DM me your email address so you’re first to hear about schedule updates and special events! 🥳

If I had to name one of my worst qualities it would absolutely be...⁣ ⁣ IMPATIENCE!⁣ ⏳ ⁣ I am impatient AS HELL, so much so that it ruined my first experience in a yoga class. I wanted to be “good” at every pose...I mean, I was a gymnast for years after all so why did I completely suck at Crow? 🤬 Why was I terrified of Headstand? 🤬🤬 Why did I constantly lose my balance in Tree? 🤬🤬🤬 ⁣ ⁣ You know why??? ⁣ ⁣ I didn’t appreciate the process and I wanted “results” right away. ⁣ ⁣ To say our patience is being tested right now is an extreme understatement. All the signs of summer are here, but we must proceed with caution and take baby steps back to normalcy for our own safety. ⁣ ⁣ Sure I’d love to get on a plane tomorrow 🛫🙋🏻‍♀️, but right now it’s all about recovering and rebuilding (literally and figuratively). ⁣ ⁣ When I feel frazzled and frustrated I think back to my time in beautiful Bali.🌺 ⁣ ⁣ The Balinese people are notoriously calm and collected. Their bliss is almost immovable. As someone easily rattled, I was completely in awe of their gentle patience and appreciation for everything around them. ⁣ ⁣ Today I tried to take a virtual yoga class and ended up shutting my computer down midway through because I was so distracted by the sunshine beaming into my living room. Then I got upset that I didn’t have the discipline to do what I always tell my students to do...to stay focused and committed. ⁣ ⁣ We all are inevitably going to have days like this because we are human and have a breaking point, but these days will pass, and little by little we will find our roots again.⁣ ⁣ 📸: @ohjackie

Traveling is NOT cancelled forever!⁣ ✈️👋 ⁣ Yoga is like a vacation for the mind. 🧠🏖⁣ ⁣ I snapped this pic while leading a retreat in Tulum in 2017. It seemed like a mirage in the hazy sunshine. ✨✨✨⁣ ⁣ It’s easy to feel defeated right now, 😔especially if you’re a yoga teacher who either:⁣ ⁣ A) Had a successful retreat business that was derailed by COVID-19⁣ ⁣ or⁣ ⁣ B) Have always dreamed of leading your first retreat but feel like that’s out of the question indefinitely ⁣ Our ability to “be present” is being tested now more than ever. ⁣ ⁣ I find it effortless to live in the moment when I’m frolicking on a beach in Mexico 🤸🏻‍♀️or laying poolside with a margarita in Miami🍹, but back home it’s incredibly challenging unless I’m on my mat...and now in quarantine, near impossible because the last thing I want to do is face our current reality. ⁣ It’s sad because I feel like all the work I’ve done to live in the here and is sabotaged as I count down the days until we feel free again. ⁣🧮 ⁣ But you know what...⁣ ⁣ I’ve decided I’m not going to let that stop me from keeping my focus and killing it doing what I love.💥 Moreover, I’ve made it my mission to help other yoga teachers stay on track as well. ⁣💃🏻 ⁣ Our dreams of leading retreats don’t have to be squashed forever, and in the meantime we can find innovative ways to start or keep our retreat biz in motion by tapping into our creativity.⁣ ⁣ Why not offer a 🌴Retreat From Home🌴and give your students a taste of what it would be like to travel with you? ⁣ ⁣ Or, how about scoping the internet for your 💫dream💫 retreat destination and getting the wheels in motion to make that happen?! ⁣ ⁣ It’s not healthy to live for tomorrow because every moment is a precious gift. So I suggest we ⚡️STAY PRESENT⚡️, take our business by the ballz, and find solace in the fact that we WILL retreat again!

2 days before snapping this photo I was emotional roadkill. ⁣⁣🚧⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ I know it’s collective, and that I am so lucky to be able to continue doing what I love when so many others out there are hurting, but I’ve haven’t felt this tenuous in years, as if at any moment I could be completely uprooted.⁣⁣ ⁣🌪 ⁣⁣⁣⁣ We can only bend so much before we break ⚠️, and last week I hit my breaking point. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I literally felt like I couldn’t get out of bed and face another day confined to the 4 walls of my apartment talking to a computer screen. I felt mentally disheveled and truth be told, if I didn’t have a little getaway upstate on the horizon I probably would’ve had a complete breakdown.⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Unplugging is so essential, but staying plugged in is my only way to make a living right now and my outlet for human connection, something that literally fuels me every day. 🔁 It’s why I became a yoga teacher📿, and now more than ever it gives me the drive I need to carry on. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ So I had to make a choice...⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️to either allow myself to continue to be steamrolled⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ or ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ➡️to pick my damn self up and find a way to recharge my🔋so I could keep showing up for my students and move past the roadblocks of stress that have been cluttering my mind. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ I’ll be the first to admit that I’m highly sensitive. I used to see this as a flaw, but it’s the essence of who I am. The ability to empathize is a gift, but it can also make you feel depleted. ⁣⁣⁣⁣😞 ⁣⁣⁣⁣ The beauty of nature is a soul-balm that rejuvenates and soothes. Our environment has such a strong effect on our minds and bodies, and that effect is unprecedentedly profound right now. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Not surprisingly, studies show that green spaces combat mental illness.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ I can’t articulate how cathartic stepping onto the dewy grass barefoot was this weekend. Nature heals🌿, and even just a couple days away from the paved city streets recalibrated my engine. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Joseph Campbell said⁣: "𝒯𝒽𝑒 𝑔𝑜𝒶𝓁 𝑜𝒻 𝓁𝒾𝒻𝑒 𝒾𝓈 𝓉𝑜 𝓂𝒶𝓀𝑒 𝓎𝑜𝓊𝓇 𝒽𝑒𝒶𝓇𝓉𝒷𝑒𝒶𝓉 𝓂𝒶𝓉𝒸𝒽 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝒷𝑒𝒶𝓉 𝑜𝒻 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝓊𝓃𝒾𝓋𝑒𝓇𝓈𝑒, 𝓉𝑜 𝓂𝒶𝓉𝒸𝒽 𝓎𝑜𝓊𝓇 𝓃𝒶𝓉𝓊𝓇𝑒 𝓌𝒾𝓉𝒽 𝒩𝒶𝓉𝓊𝓇𝑒."⁣⁣⁣

Why am I swooning hard right now?? 😊⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Because of the outpouring of love and support in our yoga/fitness/wellness community.⁣⁣ 💓 ⁣⁣ #Reposting this pic from @beccapace today. What she wrote literally brought me to tears. ⁣⁣ These were happy tears but tbh I cried a lot this weekend because the isolation is beginning to eat me alive. I started working on my playlist for the week and realized I was choosing all sad, somber songs. As I was writing my sequence it was filled with deep hip openers, which when combined with melancholy music ALWAYS make me cry. 😫⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Then I stopped in my tracks and was like, “NO! I’m not doing this.” I scrapped everything and started from scratch. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I chose upbeat tunes 🎶 and a peak pose that reduces the production of the stress hormone cortisol, which can not only calm you in the short-term but could also help relieve minor depression and anxiety. 🤸🏻‍♀️ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’ll reveal that pose in my next post 😶 but for now I just want to thank all of the amazing students, teachers, family and friends who are lifting me up right now with your kind words of acknowledgement for what I’m trying to do—to deliver sunshine through my computer screen to yours through genuine connection. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I was so touched by the outpouring of appreciation from all of the teachers who attended my webinar yesterday...so much so that I’m doing another one this Friday from 2:30-3:30pm EDT!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Same as before, it’s all about launching and/or growing your online teaching business so you can make some income to help get you through these unprecedentedly challenging times. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’m literally SO excited to offer this again, and once it’s still completely FREE of charge! ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ If you attended my webinar yesterday, I’d love if you’d comment below on what you got out of it. Also, please tag any fellow teachers who you think would find value in attending then next one. And, I’ll have even more tips to share the second time around, so if you want to tune in again, please let me know that too!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #strongertogether⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ (And thank you @nadjulik 💕 for this candid capture from our beautiful time together retreating in Mexico. We WILL retreat again!)

Sakura (桜) – Japanese for “cherry blossom” and derived from saku (咲) which means to bloom, smile and laugh. 🌸 ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Trying hard today to remember how spring feels 😔⁣ ⁣ ...picnics in the park, rosé at a sidewalk cafe, sunbathing by the waterfront. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ My street is currently lined with beautiful trees bountiful with pink flowers. I see them swaying in the breeze from the confines of my couch and it makes me both sad and hopeful.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ This week’s peak pose is named after one of the most exotic flowers in nature (...you’ll have to take class for the reveal 😬). It symbolizes freedom, joy, and overcoming obstacles. ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I gave my students a homework assignment yesterday...buy yourself flowers. Many of us don’t have porches, backyards, or even a car to hop into to take a drive. The concrete jungle doesn’t at all provide the sense of peace and tranquility that a walk in the woods or a barefoot stroll on the beach does. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So, if we can’t immerse ourselves in nature outdoors, at least we can bring a little bit of it in. ⁣⁣💐⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 📷: @truthandlovephotography
