Finding my edge. 💙 The edge used to terrify me. Now I find more excitement and joy and less fear in so many things. It’s easy to stay away from the edge. To stay where it’s safe, avoid the risk. That often means a lack of growth. Taking risks is a gamble. Sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to. But even then, there is growth. 💙😊 Wearing one of my favorite new colors from @aloyoga - pale mauve. 💙 #yoga #balance #theedge #fear #takerisks #rewards #flexible #challenge #breathe #love #life #live #pacificocean #sandiego #windandsea #aloyoga #beagoddess

Big open heart. ♥️ If you’ve followed me for a little while or a long while, you may have noticed a recurring theme in my yoga pose photos - backbends! I love the feeling of freedom and openness I get from a beautiful heart opener. I’m so excited to share my passion for teaching heart openers at @yogafestmx just a little over a week away! I take great care to prepare the body to move deeper into backbends in a way that’s safe. Will I see you in Mexico City next weekend? Can’t wait to see my friends @adellbridges @carsonclaycalhoun and @jacobmanningyoga who will also be teaching at @yogafestmx 💙💙💙 Thanks so much for capturing this moment in between Jeeps and people @lightfulyogini2.0 💙😂😘 #yoga #yogateacher #yogafestival #festival #mexico #mexicocity #backbend #openheart #bikini #bikiniyoga #strong #flexible #breathe #beachyoga

Shoulder Mobility. ♥️ Even if this gomukhasana bind isn’t something you’re seeking to achieve, having a healthy range motion in the internal and external shoulder rotators is great for over all shoulder health. ♥️ When I use a strap or a towel to modify the bind, I’ve been in the habit of resting my hands against my back or using my back as leverage to deepen the bind. This does help, but doesn’t encourage the strength building of the rotators. Always working to balance strength and flexibility, I found a drill via the @themobilitymanifesto does just that. I’m using a dowel here - you can still use a strap or a towel, just don’t rest it on your back 😉 Here are the cues for this drill as explained by the @themobilitymanifesto: (swipe left to see my demo video): 1. Grab a dowel, towel or strap
2. Place behind your back (top hand about level with the back of the head, bottom hand approx waist level. If this is too intense, take a wider grip)
3. Lift the prop off of your back and move up and down in a slow, controlled motion (2 seconds up, 2 seconds down)
4. Repeat 10/12 times on each side for symmetry, 3 sets total
Please let me know what you think! I’m so excited about all this shoulder stuff, I’ve partnered with the @themobilitymanifesto and we’re working on some upcoming challenges to provide drills to support shoulder strength and mobility in different yoga poses. ♥️ In the meantime, check out the @themobilitymanifesto shoulder program.

One of those days. 💜 Feeling a bit tired and overwhelmed. Nothing to complain about, but sometimes I think I bite off more than I can chew. That’s when I take my monkey mind into the studio and think of nothing for an hour - at the end, things seem a lot more manageable. 💜 Wearing the best grippy socks by @toesox - bright and fun colors from the summer collection that just launched today! 💜 Thanks for the photo and the class I so desperately needed @yogi_a.lo 💜🙏🏻 Wearing @aloyoga 💜 #yoga #studio #stretch #openheart #backbend #movetoimprove #shouldermobility #socks #summer #yogaphotography #sonyalpha #toesox #toesoxambassador #breathe #exhale #namaste

Flow. 💙 Today is the final day of #AloFlowDown, which means today is the day we put all of the poses together into a flow! I’ve been looking forward to this the whole time! I had no idea how I was going to move through the challenge poses until I started moving. One pose connected to the next in ways that felt organic and smooth. Transitions were new and different. I go from three legged downward dog to wildthing to side angle to goddess to my inversion of choice to fierce pose to backbend of choice to arm balance of choice to splits and finally dancer. I realized I left out side plank, and also realized I forgot to post my side angle 😬🙈 So please forgive me and I hope you enjoy my flow! Can’t wait to see yours and @laurasykora @bentley.likethecar and @yoginiinheels as well! Such a fun group to host with. 💙 Thank to @aloyoga @alo.moves for sponsoring and supporting! 💙 Happy Mother’s Day to all you mamas out there! Our job isn’t easy, but boy is it rewarding. 💙 #yoga #yogaflow #yogavideo #sundayfunday #move #breathe #movetoimprove #strong #flexible #yogateacher #yogastudent #pnw #pnwwonderland #feelslikesummer #focus #movement #aloyoga #beagoddess

Dancing. 💙 Today’s pose for #AloFlowDown is natarajasana or dancers pose. This is probably my all time favorite pose because it embodies strength and grace, balance, focus, awareness - among other things. It feels very complete to me, mentally and physically. 💙 Check out how @laurasykora @yoginiinheels ans @bentley.likethecar are dancing today!Huge appreciation for our sponsors @aloyoga @alo.moves 💙 Tricky balance among the rocks captured beautifully by @jimmyhwheeler 💙🙏🏻 #yoga #yogachallenge #challenge #dance #dancerpose #balance #flexible #grace #strength #focus #natarajasa #pnw #seattle #pnwwonderland #feelslikesummer #aloyoga #beagoddess

Lines. ♥️ Today’s pose for #AloFlowDown is splits! There are so many variations of splits it was hard to choose - until I saw the vertical lines on this wall. 😊 Standing splits is the most challenging version of this pose for me, getting vertical without the assist of gravity is hard work. ♥️ Check out @bentley.likethecar @laurasykora and @yoginiinheels for their variations. ♥️ Love and appreciation to our sponsors @aloyoga @alo.moves ♥️ Thanks so much for this capture @jimmyhwheeler and the moral support @yogi_a.lo ♥️🙏🏻 #yoga #yogachallenge #challenge #splits #balance #breathe #lines #blackandwhite #bnw #play #asana #strong #flexible #aloyoga #beagoddess #namaste

Inverted Goddess 💙 Today’s (day 8) challenge pose for #AloFlowDown is Goddess Pose. I’m not sure if this is ‘technically’ a variation of the pose or not, but all of the elements are - instead of sitting tall or forward folding, I’m going backwards. 😊💙 I can wait to check out my goddess crew’s poses - @bentley.likethecar @laurasykora @yoginiinheels 😘 Love to our generous sponsors, @aloyoga @alo.moves 💙 Thanks for the shot @yogi_a.lo! You got that symmetry down! 😘🙏🏻 #yoga #yogachallenge #challenge #goddess #beagoddess #aloyoga #backbend #openheart #love #igyogachallenge #pnw #pnwwonderland #feelslikesummer #flexible #peace #asana #namaste

Wild. ♥️ Today is already day 7 of #AloFlowDown and our pose is ‘wildthing’ or camatkarasana. This is such a feel good shape in my body. It feels free and open and graceful. ♥️ Check out @laurasykora @yoginiinheels and @bentley.likethecar for their variations. Love and thanks to @aloyoga @alo.moves for sponsoring ♥️ Photo by @kristopherpace a little over a week ago in the Florida sunshine ☀️ #yoga #yogachallenge #challenge #wild #free #bikini #bikiniyoga #stretch #balance #breathe #reflection #getoutside #optoutside #igyoga #igfitness #yogaphotography

Supported heart openers. ♥️ Did someone say any backend for today’s #AloFlowDown challenge? Since I love pretty much any and all backbends, I chose a bow with tricky balance element by taking it acro style on the feet of @yogi_a.lo ♥️ Adding the partner aspect to a full bow requires a lot of trust and communication to find comfort and breath to find ease. 😊 Check out @laurasykora @yoginiinheels and @bentley.likethecar for their backbend variations. ♥️ Love and appreciation to @alo.moves @aloyoga for sponsoring ♥️ Photo by @julielarson5 😘🙏🏻 #yoga #yogachallenge #balance #breathe #challenge #igyogachallenge #yogateacher #yogastudent #acro #acroyoga #trust #communication #bonestacking #strong #flexible #aloyoga #beagoddess
