Restivo Yoga

Yoga for the REST of your Life! private/group classes in prenatal, children's yoga, Yoga for Seniors, Beginners, injury, weight loss, stress, addiction.

Yoga Alliance 200 RYT Certified. I believe Yoga is more than a work out. Yoga is a work in. Through connecting our bodies with our breath we are able to release the stress of the mind and the tension in the body. Who wouldn't want to do that? Whether you are new to yoga, never practiced yoga, or have been practicing for a while, I would be honored to be your guide on the mat so that you may better live the life you want off the mat.

Operating as usual


A quiet gentle seat in the universe 🌍 where I don’t need or want anything...

You know that feeling? I get that when I meditate. Completely free.

Love you. Peace to you. Miss all of you 💛☀️💛

Responsibility. The ability to choose how we respond.

I needed to hear this today. To remember and remind myself of where my energy leaks are. To Whom or what am I giving my energy away to and how am I responding.

And to take ownership of where those energy leaks are and make the shift. Focus 🧘🏼‍♂️ on shifting my own energy, on my own, and then watch how this creates others energy around me to shift.

Shift your vibration to create the ones you want around you.

Drop a✌🏼if you agree! Do you know where your energy leaks are?

When you bring consciousness to anything, things begin to shift and today I want to bring consciousness to V Day.

V Day is a different day for me than it might be for our mainstream audience.
It’s not roses and chocolate. It’s a day that commands to end violence against women and girls that was started by author, playwright and activist @eveensler A movement I will always support. But I want to support not just the women and the girls. I want to support the men and the transgender, and the millions of us out there that have suffered at the hands of sexual and domestic abuse. #vday #endviolenceagainstwomen #endviolenceagainstwomenandgirls #endviolenceagainstsexworkers #endviolenceagainstourqueenz #endviolenceagainstmen #valentines #domesticviolenceawareness #survivor @ Our House in the Middle of the Street


Gaze out at space
Aware of multicolored luminosity
Permeating everywhere
The blue sky, filled with rays from the sun
The night sky dark, yet crisscrossed with
The light of a billion suns.
How can this be?
All space is the same,
Inside you and far away.
Lose yourself in spaciousness,
Come home to your true self.

The Radiance Sutras: Sutra 53 || 76 || “Lose Yourself in Spaciousness, Come Home to Your True Self”

The air I am breathing was exhaled in ecstasy
By an ancient Sun.
This Earth I am standing on
Was born of cosmic fire.
The blood flowing through my veins
Is as salty as the primordial ocean.
The space permeating my body
Is infinite as the space all around.

Above, below, to all sides, within,
The elements of the universe
Are engaged in their ceremony of delight.

This is my religion-
The attraction between suns
Is the same
As the love pulsating in my heart.

– Radiance Sutra #34, translated by Lorin Roche

Thank you for being there in my heart and thank both of you for all the good you give to this world. Whether it’s inspiration through healing our hearts and bodies or saving the oceans. Give both of these squares some love y’all. ❤️

Dr. King spoke these words in 1956 at the 50th Anniversary celebration of Alpha Phi Alpha—the oldest black fraternity in this country. He was an Alpha himself, and he so embodied the fraternity’s mission of leadership, academic excellence, service, and advocacy that he won the Alpha Award of Honor that night.

Today, as we reflect on Dr. King’s life and work, we’re taking heed of the call to leadership he made so many years ago. In this moment, we still need “leaders in love with justice…in love with humanity,” who can devote their immense talent and passion to the greatest problems of our time.

Everything Changes once we identify with being the witness in the story instead of the actor in it.
@babaramdass said that. I have to say I agree with him so profusely.

It takes a lot of pressure off of yourself, your body, your mind, when you practice being a witness to everything. And you’re able to do so without judgment.

Here’s to another day, witnessing the sunrise! ☀️☀️☀️

Saying goodbye...

To 2020 that is. I know it’s been a minute but it’s been feeling really good to be off social media these last few weeks. And spending more time focused on work, and family time (via zoom) and mentality, emotionally, and physically, taking care of myself. For a second I thought about going off completely but, nah.

This year has been a wild ride, for all of us, but once again I’m feeling grateful and blessed. And I wanted to say thank you. @casabellarecovery @ascendhealthcare for keeping me on board teaching. Because of these two incredible communities, run by some of the most powerful and compassionate people, I’ve had the opportunity to continue working this year and it’s been my best blessing yet.

Because I haven’t had to spend all my extra time in the studios, which of course I miss, especially @whiteheatyoga , I’ve been able to focus more on my clients who are struggling during these challenging times. I’ve had more time to really know and understand their needs. To be able to spend extra time if needed, not rushing off to fight LA traffic. And it’s the clients at both these facilities that have really brought me so much joy.

Being able to be of support and hold space for those suffering from addictions and mental health, severe trauma and PTSD, has been the best part of being a yoga teacher. Ive learned so much from the kids I work with. They’ve taught me more than any teacher training ever could have. And working with the women of Casa Bella has been so heart expanding. I’m in love with what I get the chance to do every day of the week.

So I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for trusting me, for allowing me the space to do the work, and for running the facilities in the ways you do every day to support those who need help. I’m so grateful to be a part of this journey. And I look forward to what 2021 is bringing us! The journey just keeps getting better!!!

Happy Holidays everyone!

Do you ever feel like this?

Confused. Lonely. Irrelevant. Floating. Existing in this consciousness but not really understanding who you are or why you’re here. But you know you’re here to be of service, and as much as you love giving to others, you’re so open to receive?

Approaching this new lockdown has got me feeling a lot. It’s that second wave of, “Are you ready to sit with yourself again? Are you ready to do more shadow work? Can you handle this?” Yes! YOU can! Yes YOU will.

Deep inhale. My heart races. I can taste that breath of fear creep in. I do my best to find gratitude and to be in the practice of HERE NOW. Exhale. The Ego is being a bitch and is doing everything it can to avoid being here now!

I’m not sure if it’s old traumas rearing it’s ugly head around, or just the mind bearing weight from old conditioning. I think it’s both and more. You know, if you know.

Press play @babaramdass @beherenownetwork and do more yoga and chant more and do more breathing and all the things. Do you ever feel this? Because if you do, I’d love to hear about your experience. What you do to keep breathing and moving? How are you preparing for another lockdown as we move into 2021? What’s your perspective? What tools help you navigate through these times?

Drop a comment below 🙏🏻🤗 I’m ready to receive your perspective? And hey, I love you! ❤️

A reminder...

Over the weekend I felt a set back. In my body. In my heart. But this morning I reminded myself to stop worrying about any outcomes. And looking at myself in the mirror asking, “What can I do today to add value and create positive energy?” And it’s always the same answer. Stay present. Focus on what I can do today.

I know this pandemic has taken a toll on all of us. Also the election, the madness of the world. Madness of the people. And if you’re extremely sensitive to all this collective energy, some days can be more challenging than others. But I encourage you to stay present and focus on what you can do today. And don’t worry about being anymore than or less than. Be you. Be present. And in the wise words of @babaramdass BE HERE NOW- ❤️U

Love in Our Imagination

It all starts with nothing, like a blank canvas waiting to be touched, not by the eyes and hands, but touched by our imagination. So we paint nothing to something, from blank to colors, one touch to another, one movement to the next, like love in motion. With love in our imagination, we created a reality of love, a place where we can forever stay, a place for our better days.

It all starts with nothing, but begins with you. -Michael Aboya ( not only his powerful words but check out his masterpieces of imagery @aboya.8

Memories of Africa flood my heart and my brain, as they always do, but today more than others. Looking out upon this horizon, this place of exquisite love, Kenya 🇰🇪you are a masterpiece in itself.

[11/17/20]   Feeling this flow, this breath, this beautiful morning, this life.

Waking up this morning and remembering how many people I interacted with who are really struggling right now. Friends, family, clients, woman at the grocery store.

We are being led right now through a time where we must sit with our feelings and emotions, fears, insecurities, doubt, uncertainty. But to be a witness of them all. And to see them without judgment. Just witness.

And as we sit and feel, we must remember we are not these fears, or thoughts, or doubts, whatever it is that rises to the surface of our minds and our hearts.

And to lean in. Trust. Have compassion towards yourself. Towards all beings. Practice Metta. Loving kindness. Breathe. Move. Go slow and allow yourself the time and space that you need to move forward.

Getting on your mat helps. 😉

I love you. ❤️

Something I noticed in savasana this morning. I noticed how difficult physically it is for my body to fully relax. It takes me several attempts to allow for my body weight to be fully received by the earth below me.

I believe this to be the weight I can sense from the collective consciousness. I know a lot of you are feeling it. But remember not to hold onto it so tight that it acts against your body, or your mind, or your spirit. Remember to breathe, and remember how powerful you are! We may sense and feel so deeply the energies around us. What we’re consuming through all of our senses can bear weight upon us. Be mindful when consuming. (Media, food, how we spend our time, with who and where, etc.)Take in what supports your frequency and your freedom. High vibrations only! Feel how good it is to feel good. To feel whole. And to love yourself so fully that you show up for yourself.

Thanks to @yogaglo and @diceyoga for guiding my practice this morning! For reminding me in, subtle ways, to feel through my body.

Blessings to everyone on this beautiful Friday #jaishrikrishna #yoga #yogafun #yogaflow #yogapractice #yogaeverydamnday #losangeles #election2020 #instagood #instadaily #love #loveyourself

Namaste Yogis and Yoginis.

There’s a lot of you who are new to my page. Thanks for stopping by. 🙏🏻 there’s also all of you who have been around for this whole journey, from when I first quit corporate and started teaching! Holy! Bakasana! Thanks to you too!

A lot of you have been messaging as to why I don’t have more online classes or outdoor in the mornings. I’d love to but I’m teaching in the mornings already at the rehabs currently.

And I wouldn’t trade those classes with the women and the teens I get to see several times a week, for anything.

I’m so blessed to teach in recovery. I never take a day for granted. Being in an environment where people are struggling with addictions and mental health is the best job I’ve ever received. It’s taught me so much about humans, and compassion, and myself, and how importantly yoga and meditation truly, truly are.

Because of privacy laws, I’m obviously not supposed to share about my clients. But I will share how much I love and adore them. Even when it’s challenging. But for me, it’s the greatest gift to keep sharing, and expanding through this practice. These last few months have been blessing upon blessing. And it’s because of stepping inside those four corners. For not giving up. For taking care of myself, even when it felt like I couldn’t. Thanks to everyone on this journey. I love traveling with all of you. Even if it means we stay in Los Angeles for the time being!

I’ll be back for Sunday Beach Yoga 🧘🏼‍♂️ on November 1st. Looking forward to seeing you all again. I’ll miss you this weekend!

Take care of YOU. Be WELL. LOVE YOU.

Every Sunset is an opportunity to reset. Every Sunrise another day to begin again. Every time we step onto the yoga mat, the offer is the same. We can begin again, and again, and again. It’s ok to start over, not matter where you have arrived upon your journey. Stay curious. Stay adventurous. Practice loving kindness towards your life, your body, your heart. Practice loving kindness towards a total stranger today. Notice. Observe.
