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

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.

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.

Sunday Beach Yoga Update! 🌊 ☀️

First off, thank you. Thank you for coming together. For being in community and for taking the time, for yourself and to love yourself enough to show up on your mat, in the sand!

Because I’m getting such a great response from all of you, the community is growing and so I’d like to make sure we all are staying safe and comfortable. And so that we can continue to come together!

Class Safety Protocols! ☀️

We are outside so we can easily space ourselves 6ft apart. Arrive early to claim your social distanced spot. Class starts at 8:30am💛

Temperature checks when you arrive. Especially since we have some immune comprised yogis that would like to join, and I want them to feel safe and comfortable.

Lastly, wear your masks as they are required on the beach, but once you’re on the mat, you’re free to take them off, as you will be 6ft away from one another. Or wear them the whole time if you prefer.

Lastly, if you feel unwell, stay home and rest yourself, get well! ☀️💛☀️

Class is all levels! And all our welcome!

Please DM to RSVP if you have not already. I will then send you location for 8:30 beach yoga! Prepare to sweat, work stagnant energy out of the body, a dunk in the ocean, and meditation to tap into our higher consciousness!

Looking forward to seeing you!

Bring water, towel, yoga mat, and tour good vibes!

Take the time to fold into yourself this week. Honor and acknowledge you’re beautiful being!

I’ve received a lot of messages and had a lot of talks with all of you, over the last week, about how you’ve lost sight of your yoga practice. That you haven’t stepped onto the mat much during quarantine.

I’m here to remind you it’s ok. We all go through this in our practice. I’ve been there too. Good news is it doesn’t matter if it’s been a week, 3 months, a year, because no matter how long, your practice never leaves you. Your body remembers. And it’s never to late to be renewed on the mat.

Be gentle and compassionate with yourself. Love yourself where you’re at today! Don’t worry about the past or the future of your practice. Focus on today and step inside those four corners of your mat, or a towel, or a chair, or on the grass outside. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You already are magic.

Love you and looking forward to moving together this week. 💖

I have to say, I’m pretty proud of myself for the rehab work I’ve been doing on my hip. But even more importantly on my life, my energy, my vibration, my frequency.

Two weeks before the pandemic I woke in the middle of the night with excruciating thrusting pain in my hip flexor or _____
First weeks into the pandemic and I’m not even walking. In bed. In the dark. Drinking. Eating. Slothing.

3 weeks in I’m moving a bit. 4 weeks I’m walking with a lot of pain. And I’m irritable as hell.

4/5 weeks I’m walking a goal of 3 miles a day in the neighborhood as the beach was closed.

Then once the beach reopened I was walking 3 miles in the sand. No more pavement. I figured less impact in the sand.

Then walking turned to a light jog. Then running a mile in the sand. Then dancing in the sand because I ran a mile! Then interval training. And then more running.

If you don’t know, before Africa, I was running 6-7 miles about 3-4 days a week.

So things got dark for me in the beginning. But guess wtf what! This week. This glorious week of August. I’ve already ran 3 5K’s.

And it’s not just running. It’s meditation. Visualization. Dusting off my Reiki and putting my hands on my hip while I shoot the universal light of healing out of my palms. And I breathe. And I imagine triangles. And that my hip is rebuilding itself as a triangle. Resilient and fierce and strong and wise. All the mean while getting my vitamin D.

So seeing myself I’m this reflection, this mirror, I’m so blessed with gratitude for my yoga practice, and for the angles it’s showed me. Because my practice, the one I’m having with myself, is the most important practice of all. And without yoga I don’t think I’d see my reflection at all.

Bless this life for all the abdundance and wisdom my body has given me to learn how to work through this. To navigate the uncertainty. To fall apart and get back up again. And remember, even if you’re falling apart as you read this, there’s still time to heal. You’re not stuck. All the power is within you.

Since before quarantine I had been dealing with my hip Injury, that in turn led my body down some weaker paths. Including my core. By adding the blanket, and using it for transitions, I’m able to create more heat from my center. Repeating this over and over, until I was drenched today. You’d be surprised what a little pranayama and a blanket can do as you warm up. Having a cute pup like Poe helps too. Thanks to @buntheripper and @redak_la for letting me spend time with their kids!

Excited to practice with all of you this week. Bring a blanket, or put your socks on and let’s continue to get strong together. And continue to return home. To ourselves.

What are the blessings or gifts you like to recall?

Throwing it back to Kenya...

It really hasn’t been that long since I had to return back to the US. February was just yesterday. Not a day goes by I don’t have some sort of thought or memory of my experience there and especially my time with everyone @mysawalife

What a blessing. What a gift. I’m ready to go back. But this time, I’d like to stay longer. Or forever if they’ll have me!

I’d love to hear about the blessings or gifts you like to recall?
