Knowing I get to choose who I am, who I'll be, and the story I want for my life is open for ample growth and reversions as I go. Mmmm feels good gang. // Happy Thursday. Currently throwing heavy weights around and doing some demos on IG TV on @cbqualitytraining
So I was thinking today about two wildly different thoughts 1. How different would your relationships (friends, family, partners) look if money didn't exist or if you were financial equals? And 2. How superficial and body focused modeling is even if it's under the guise of inclusivity and women being worth more than bodies (the irony) // Both topics actually speak to empowerment tho and what it means to be truly empowered. Having control and agency financially as a woman is huge. Being able to exist as more than a body is also huge. The sad part of this is how much value (socially and monetarily) we still place on women's bodies and how much agency an acceptable / attractive / capable body will provide a woman. I wish I had more answers or ways to navigate power, shame, bodies, exploitation, and the internet but for now all I can say is stay skeptical and thoughtful my friends, and feel free to weigh in on the above topics from today's thoughts.
It's Sunday. Be easy my loves. // (But also take a moment for yourself to write down what you want to do and be and feel today, and keep writing it down everyday. Watch what happens. Great advice I was given, and now I'm sharing it with you.🖤)
Evolution is not always outwardly understood but I'll just leave this here from stories 🖤 of course there's a longer story to my experience as a woman in yoga tights on the internet but...I still teach. I still have classes. I still answer lots of yoga questions and champion yoga (and wellness) for all. Maybe I post sequences again some day soon, but for now this feels genuine and protected.
Making time for yoga, even if it’s only 15 minutes, will always be how I find calm. Wearing some of the newest pieces from #JJillFit. Don’t forget to share how you practice wellness in the post from Jan. 2 and you'll be entered to win a @JJillStyle $100 gift card 😌🙏🏽 #ad
I'm currently reading 'Goodbye, Things' and thinking about what brings me joy and how those things shape who we are and how we feel about ourselves. I think about when I was younger and I realized I could be whomever I wanted to be; and often times it was as simple as being patient and crafting the person and life I wanted instead of settling with the hand I was dealt. Sure, it doesn't always work that way instantly and often times survival outweighed 'authentic' but to understand that simplicity is a way to being more of oneself was a huge moment for me. I didn't need more things, I just needed the things that felt the most like me. These can be esoteric, environmental, or material but it's a good life when you know you, strive to be more of you, and support others being more of themselves. #liketkit http://liketk.it/2z9Vj @liketoknow.it + @myraswim#myragang *the best* and let's enjoy this baby bicep I got here ouuuuuuu
*giveaway closed* Comfort and ease really are my main goals in life and in activewear, and that's what I have found in the #JJillFit collection. Even when y’all don’t see as much yoga, I’m still making time for breathing exercises, simple movements and time outside to maintain calm in my life. Did you know deep breathing benefits our mental and emotional health by way of stimulating our parasympathetic nervous system, which cues us to relax? You’ll also have lowered blood pressure and might even feel happier overall. What do you make time for considering your health and well being?
