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

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

Swipe to see how happy I am to be in nature! Camping with two of my favorite humans. Thanks @andrewvelazquez_ @johnnydebut @johnnyandandrew for getting this week off to such a great start. So grateful to unplug with the two of you and the kids!

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.

Tonight Friday 10/16 Sunset Yoga 5pm

Sunday 8:30am Sunday Morning Satsang/Yoga&Meditation

It’s a brand new and beautiful day today! Big win for the City of Angels last night! Congrats @lakers 💛💜💛💜💛💜
Also Happy #indigenouspeoplesday 💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫💫

Goals this week, some of which we talked about Sunday morning, Metta: The Practice of Lovingkindness 🤍🦋
And in the words of @krishnadasmusic “it’s all about LOVE. We fall in love with ourselves the minute we see our true being. There’s no other option. It’s so beautiful. If we really believed that we were worthy of love-and that, in fact, we are the love that’s waiting for us within our own hearts-every second of our day would be different. Every single second. Immediately. “

When we practice Metta we start to see things in a less reactive way. Our judgments begin to dissolve and get replaced by care and loving kindness Krishna Das says. I encourage you to practice this on and off the mat this week! And if you already are I’d love to know how it’s going! Or share some of your goals in the comments below. The more we share the more we can continue to support and and help one another grow!

Stay safe. Stay happy. Be healthy in your body, mind, and spirit! Sending out massive heart hugs 🤗 to you all. Love you! Namaste!

Throwing it back to February- post yoga smiles. After my second day in Kibera with all these amazing souls.
I think of my time here and the opportunity I had to share yoga, every day. In a sense it still feels like a dream. I’m so grateful everyone let me take there photo. These photos always remind me to persevere, to never give up, to keep connecting with people, to stand up for what you believe in, for family, and grit.
This was one of the best days of my visit to Kenya. Spending two days in a row and hours on end just doing yoga with everyone. To chanting with them, breathing with them, dancing, sharing bread and tea and eggs. My gratitude extends all the way around the world and back to the women of @sawa 💫🙏🏻
Thank you always and I hope it’s not too much longer before I can return. Love all of you so much. @maggiematoka @karambumathai @emmaculate_jacobine_

Love is what we are; we don't get it from somebody, we can't give it to anybody, we can't fall in it or fall out of it. Love is our true Being.

AR...That’s me.
This last week I have been receiving strong confirmation that the universe has placed me exactly where I’m meant to be. It always has. It’s showing me that I am loved and I am supported and I am not afraid to ask for help. Even though it still feels uncomfortable! That I’m open to receive all this love and support and abundance that is in alignment with my frequency and vibration.

And where did this all start? On my yoga mat of course!

And setting intentions. And shifting into a more powerful way of thinking. And setting those intentions that benefit my focus and my heart expansion. And affirming.

Affirmations have become key in my everyday life now more than ever. Here are just a few affirmations that help me along the way. Maybe they will benefit you too.

Guess what’s back this week?

You got it! Beach Yoga! This Friday at sunset and Sunday morning.

DM me for details and directions!

Now that the smoke has cleared let’s get back into community and back on our mats!

I’ve missed our connections and looking forward to being in flow with you.

It’s my mamma’s birthday today...

Mom, this was us in the water just 6 weeks after my birth day. This photo reminds me of how lucky I was that you always had me doing something active, something outside, something healthy for my body and mind.

Mom, I appreciate all you’ve shown me, all the times you supported me and you continue to do so.

Mom, now that my hair is long again I want to cut it like yours in this photo. You’re such a 70’s babe. Probably why I love that era the most.

Mom, thanks for being such a good human, for helping all the children I saw you work with growing up. For not being a racist. For showing me that life extends out beyond our culture and our genders and our sexual preferences. You taught me how to love in so many ways. And you taught me always to love myself first. You taught me about what it means to be family. Even though we were a small family, you’d say, we were a great family.

I know we haven’t been able to see each other in person in a very long time, but I’m so blessed that we’ve been able to connect so much via video during this Pandemic. Even through the screen you’ve kept on supporting me and loving no matter what was going on. Thanks for encouraging me, ALWAYS. I miss you but I’m still grateful for all the phone calls, all the video calls, all the emails. We’ll be together soon! I can feel it!

I love you and I’m so happy you were born on this day.

Nothing like a sister to pull you out of your funk.

I haven’t been smiling as much these last few months, and if I was, it was a mask. Not the mask we’ve been forced to wear due to this sh*t show we’ve all been living in, but the mask of trying to be strong. The mask that says I’ve got my sh*t together. The mask that says I’m F.I.N.E. You know what fine stands for? F**ked up. Insecure. Neurotic. & Emotional.

Hmmmm... I can’t say I’m all those but the f**ked up and emotional part, for sure.

These last few months have been a huge struggle for me mentally. My injury, the lack of human interaction, being homesick, being uncertain of where I’m going to lay my head at night, can I afford my own place, will I have to switch careers, can I lean into uncertainty?

Holy f**k y’all. some days it feels like the sky is crushing my brain and my heart and my body is right underneath. But we have to keep pushing. Keep breathing. Keep trusting in source and the energy we are putting out there. And this is barely scratching the surface for me, in which I’d like to express myself and what I’m going through. But WE ARE ALL going through something.

And there are days where I just want to stay in bed. Shut out the noise. But I’m awake to the fact that we are all transforming. We are ascending. And sometimes it doesn’t feel safe. The walls we’ve built. The f**kery of it all. Our old ways don’t work anymore! We are being forced to out grow our old ways. We’re in a space of prime opportunity to expand and explore. To release and relinquish. The time is now to create what it is you want to live like and live by. The time is now. Can you see it? Do you feel it?

I know some days I can and it’s crystal and other days I want to say f**k it. But no matter what, no matter how painful, if you lean in and trust, you will be protected. As long as your intentions are clear.

I feel like this is still so surface as to what I really want to say but I had to say something to remind you that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I know often times it feels that way but you’re not. And if you do feel lost and isolated, send me a message. Let’s connect. Your story helps me to survive. 🙏🏻

Sharing the mantra I’m focused on this week. ☀️Gayatri Mantra ☀️

☀️A Universal Prayer ☀️
Om Bhur Bhuvaḥ Swaḥ
Tat-savitur Vareñyaṃ
Bhargo Devasya Dheemahi
Dhiyo Yonaḥ Prachodayāt
We meditate on that most adored Supreme Lord, the creator, whose effulgence (divine light) illumines all realms (physical, mental and spiritual). May this divine light illumine our intellect.

Word meaning: Om: The primeval sound; Bhur: the physical body/physical realm; Bhuvah: the life force/the mental realm Suvah: the soul/spiritual realm; Tat: That (God); Savitur: the Sun, Creator (source of all life); Vareñyam: adore; Bhargo: effulgence (divine light); Devasya: supreme Lord; Dhīmahi: meditate; Dhiyo: the intellect; Yo: May this light; Nah: our; Prachodayāt: illumine/inspire.

Finding Peace Everyday. . .

And I’ve found so much peace in getting together with everyone on the beach that I’m adding another beach yoga class. This one will be on Friday’s. We’ll gather around 5:30-5:45. I want to give everyone enough time to get there with traffic.

Same location, at Will Rogers Beach at the bottom of Temescal Canyon Road. DM me for specific details and to RSVP.

Sunset yoga and meditation starts this Friday!!! Donation based class ♥️☀️🌊🧘🏼‍♂️

And then next Sunday the 13th we’ll meet again at 8:30am. That Sunday we’re going to make a day of it so if you want to stick around, please join us in some beach time.

There’s no normal, there is only now.

Remember, it’s ok to not to be ok. But whatever your present situation is, if it’s not bringing you joy then perhaps see if you can let it go. Set if free. Close your eyes, take the deepest breath in, gently exhale, release, let go, and let’s fly.

Have a blessed out and blessed day everyone. Love you.
