Glimpses of my #ofrenda for the deceased. Today the white flowers are for the smallest, those who were children and younger. I also include in my prayers those from #residentialschools who are just now being discovered. I welcome them into our memory and prayers. #forallourrelations 🙏🏽

Here I am on #kumeyaay territory trying to rest on #indigenouspeoplesday and I’ve got to say it’s tough to do. There is so much history that isn’t taught. For example, who’s ancestral lands do you live on? Leave a comment below

I’ve been floored by the month of September because it has been personally difficult in so many ways. It is appropriate that we are approaching the season of the dead (día de los mu***os etc). As we transition into this new season remember what is essential and great. What does that mean to you?

If I really see myself,
I laugh out loud at the humor of it;
If I really see myself,
I fall silent in awe;
If I really see myself,
I burst into 1,000 pieces from inspiration;
And if I fail to really see myself, I am sealed in the cement and stone of my own prison. —Rumi
#Yoga class tomorrow at 10am PST on #zoom. Prepay to RSVP. DM for details

Another #run done! Today’s outfit was bright🔆 so that everyone can see me. I go so early I need to be visible. More importantly, I’m wearing bright clothes because I like it and I refuse to adhere to the “slimming” or “flattering” (aka diminishing) beauty standard. I’m #round, #curvy, and #fat. I’m a whole different standard! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 I wear what I want because I affirm my place in the world and anyone else who feels like the world wants to dim your light! Shine bright epic humans!! 💪🏽💪🏽🌞

A #badday can turn around in a moment. Today in #yogatherapy in my studio we had a few #breakthrough #miracles happen (read the notes). Life can sometimes tumble you down and guess what? We get back up a little stronger and wiser. I’m here to help and be your cheerleader. #yoga #whatido

So California is officially open without masks, social distancing, or other precautions. 😳😬 I’ll be riding like the people in the picture thank you very much. I’m cautiously optimistic. I’ve been pretty quiet since my birthday because I’m deep into my native medicinal garden and laughing at the animals that take their share of the fruits and herbs. I managed to save 1 peach out of 3 beautiful sweet and fragrant ones on the tree. Also last photo is of a crack on the windshield (windscreen) of the car. What started out yesterday as a perfect star has developed into a beautiful butterfly shape. May your unfortunate accidents also morph into beautiful art. 🙏🏽

So many times I hear people say “I can’t do XYZ because my body has a bad reaction to that.” I always ask if they’ve considered that maybe it is the body trying to protect you from something? The body has inherent wisdom and it can be a hard thing to remember when so much of the dialogue (even medical) is about fighting and pushing. A better question might be, “how can I support my body in keeping me healthy and cared for?” Do I have good boundaries? Are you caring for yourself or is everything reactionary? #bodywisdom whispers until it screams and gets our attention. #yogatherapy #meditation #deeplistening

I have a confession, I really miss seeing my students in the #yogastudio. I feel blessed and deep gratitude for those students who have seamlessly switched to zoom calls but it’s just not the same. I miss the in personal heartfelt connection. What do you miss most from nonCovid times?

I’m mad. This is deeply offensive to me. This person and/or company have a cat in a #molcajete which is a traditional type of basalt mortar used in #mexico and throughout north and Central America. This kitchen staple is usually passed down in families over generations. This tradition predates colonization. We use it in sacred ways and it must be cured and kept clean. This is a sacred object FOR MAKING FOOD being used in a profane way. I encourage everyone to let them know they are #culturevulture and this #appropriation to sell #catlitter?! #NO #stopit

♥️Special love to you all today! The greatest love starts with self love. Like a wise friend of mine once wrote, “you don’t have to be dead to celebrate the day of the dead so too you can celebrate #valentines day without a valentine.” 😂 so go on and treat yourself!

That’s a wrap! I just finished with a 5 week #meditationclass and it was really good. Being able to tune in every week asking questions and learning tools for a deeper connection with yourself and your spiritual self —invaluable! I have another course starting up on Sunday, February 21st. More details to come! #yoga

Today is my day off and I’m trying to get back into my creative side (not that it actually ever leaves). I spy with my little eye a fellow who’s just day dreaming —perfect to catch a quick sketch! What do you do to feed your creative side? #draw ?#potter? #cook?

Wise words from a prominent scientist and educator that inspire action to me. I’m trying new things and learning how much I have yet to learn about this amazing body I’ve been gifted with. Life is for being curious and engaging in it —don’t let anyone dampen your curiosity or play. #yoga #meditation #learning #seldawareness #bebold

A lot of people don’t know or realize that I am an #introvert. I get really nervous and anxious when in front of groups. Then after gatherings I need a lot of alone time to regain my energy. It is pretty funny that my life‘s work is in teaching. My saving grace has been a steady #Meditation practice, which is really helps me come out of my shell. Tomorrow, I begin teaching a meditation course and I hope to share the things I’ve learned over the years that have helped me with #depression, #anxiety, #trauma, and life. There are only a few more spaces left. Course closes at midnight tonight! You can DM for more details.

So much happens in life. Sometimes you just need to let go. Give yourself some peace because you deserve happiness and freedom. I’ve been through the trenches with this one and #meditation has helped me focus on #movingthrough this and more. I’ll be sharing what has worked in my #meditation and #life. #getright #simpleyeteffective

Tonight I am being serenaded by a “gaze” of raccoons outside my bedroom window. It’s a really sweet little chatter going on. The other night they were scratching at my window. Obviously they need to tell me something. But what could it be? #animaltalk #plantmoreedibles ?? Any ideas?

My reading list is long but this quote is so relevant for our times. It is from the book, “To Heal a Fractured World, the ethics of Responsibility” by Jonathan Sacks. I highly recommend this read. #study #give #improve #goodreads

I stood still for a few big breaths while witnessing nature. Moments before the sky was scarlet red! Everything glowed and felt fresh and bright. In seconds things can change. Take a moment today to be in the moment. #sunrise #sadhana

One of the best parts of #teachingyoga, for me, are the relationships I develop with my beloved students. I hold the space, patience, nurturing the body confidence, and encouraging deep listening of the body, mind, spirit. In a world with so many toxic messages this is the quiet zone where you get to just be, judgment free.

Want to know what feeds my gleeful nerdy soul? When we come into conversations about #anatomy and #physiology. This week students were talking about the #trigeminal nerve, #psoas muscle, #Achilles’ tendon, aura #migraine, #xiphoid process and #breathing. 💃🏽 I love it! I also love saying “I don’t know right now, let me do some research.” And I gleefully learn something fascinating about the most amazing symphony known as the human body works. I love it all! #bodylove #treepose #nofilter #groundedinscience #privateyogateacher
