I’m exhausted. The kind of exhausted that no amount of sleep can fix. It’s the feeling of doing your best and it’s not enough. I know everything will be okay and most of this is in my own head but it’s not getting better, so maybe if I admit it I’ll be able to let it go.

Saying goodbye to India today. Ashtanga yoga was my second yoga love. I originally fell in love with Rocket yoga, and that led me to Ashtanga. The discipline and commitment required continue to teach me so much about myself. After my wrist injury it took me a while to get back into the flow of my practice, but as far as yoga goes I'm pretty sure Ashtanga will always be a major part of my personal practice.
If you are curious about learning more, @samseesworld and I are teaching a weekend intensive in Boulder February 24 & 25th. We will explore this beautiful traditional practice in non-traditional ways, because let's face it- we are a bit non-traditional πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

I used to practice risky things all the time. I could land a lot of arm balances from handstand because I was fearless to a fault and didn't really care if I hurt myself. I usually landed hard, and looking back it's no wonder that I hurt my wrist. I'm probably capable of doing almost all of the things I used to be able to do, but most of the time I choose not to do them. I wanted to lower into chinstand in this video, and I'm glad I didn't. I have faith that I will be able to do it again one day- I just have a lot of push ups to do between now and then! 🌞in @pakalohabikinis

I'm really not the best Instagram model. My hair is always a mess, and I much prefer to do handstands than yoga poses in front of the camera. Plus, I usually get grumpy on photoshoots. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ
