Not sure if you’ve noticed but I’ve basically quit working out. Life. Injury. Depression. Laziness. All of the things. It’s like 1 day turned into 2 months in the blink of an eye. And- I was, I think in the best shape of my life. Not so much right now. If I’m honest that makes it even scarier to come back. That so much can all be lost so quickly. That’s it’s a lifetime commitment and effort. That I’m fully in control. Ugh. The past few days I’ve really, REALLY wanted to workout but the moment I go to leave for the gym I feel magnetized to my couch. Like 1/2 of me isn’t in control. So yesterday I said fuck this- I decided to switch up the routine and trick myself by doing something I would never do- I went for a run! Everything hurts 😭😹 laying my mat down was a struggle, but post flowing my body feels like it took a breath. Its time like these when I’m like oh yea- yoga is really the most amazing ever. But anyway- if you’re watching this video and endlessly scrolling- take a breath. Remind yourself that this moment will pass. No really, say it and believe it. Now remember that this moment will pass even sooner if you can just get up and get moving. I love you. Do it. Wearing @aloyoga
There are these moments while I practice yoga, not always- in fact they are far and few between. But every now and again- I understand. Without any thought. I know prayer, love and presence. And just like that it passes. As the amazing @talia_sutra would say- #loveandalliscoming Thank you. I love you.
Neti Breathwork Nauli-ish (drills and exercises that help you build up to nauli) It’s something I’ve been day dreaming about teaching for years. I’ve dabbled a bit and the group neti session is always a hit (picture- a dozen adults with snot on their faces, finally letting down barriers, laughing hysterically all while learning a new method of self care) So- I’ve finally paired some of my favorite practices and I’m taking it a studio near you! Well- ok right now just St. Paul Minnesota 😹🙏🏽 but I’m stoked for this first step. They say all you have to do is take the first step. So- here we go. I couldn’t be more grateful for @yogawithjq and her new studio @northernyogacenter for the safe space to teach this workshop for the first time! December 19th! Tap around on @northernyogacenter to sign up 💚
Where else should I go? Would you come to my workshop? If so, where are you based? Thank you. I love you.
AWAKEN, my newest class on @alo.moves launched recently! What I was aiming for when I planned the class “A morning flow. Slow paced, intentional movements help us to reveal areas of imbalance. Emphasis on transitions helps to build dynamic strength, stability and awareness. Encouraged closed-eyes and introspection before we leave our home helps to create space and peace.” What I ended up filming? I’m not quite sure because A- I blacked out a little and B- *get this* after sharing my life via stories for years, listening to my own voice is still nearly impossible! So- I haven’t watched it. Yet. I did however- ask a few of my favorite teachers to give it a try and they had good things to say! I hope you too enjoy it- but I would love your honest (and loving) feedback!
Morocco in June? Sounds like a good idea to me 🙊😻 Meet me there?! Breathwork (which if you don’t already know- is some powerful shit)
Meditation workshops that make meditation a lot less daunting and show you how USEFUL even 10 minutes a day can be! Handstands!
But mostly- connection and love... those late night moments after dinner when you realize that the stranger across the table is your new best friend, the conversations you couldn’t predict and the breakthroughs you’ve been asking for. See you there 💚 **for more info head over to @glowyogaretreats - tap on the link in the bio - look for Morocco in June. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to DM either myself or @kaylala88 (My ever so inspiring and badass co-host)
When one of my best friends, @gypsetgoddess started working with @findtap our conversations began to shift and as I got more and more interested in her cause I asked how I could join the movement. It’s been 2 months... Flash back to last March, I’m in Bali for the first time. Trash in the rice fields, trash coming down the waterfall, plastic everywhere. I called Caitlin crying. I broke down and expressed that Bali simply wasn’t what you see in photos. Cait calmly explained their struggle with one time use wrappers and plastics. She gently helped to shift my broken heart into a sympathetic heart. I came home on a mission. I bought glass straws and bamboo cutlery. I began to notice the trash in my neighborhood, on road trips, parks and our beaches. But fuck. I’ve forgotten my cutlery more times than I can count. And All that action and motivation fizzled out. If I’m honest I’ve probably used dozens of one time use plastics since then- water bottles, straws, salsa cups. KNOWING full well where it will end up. It’s been 2 months... it’s been two months because I find myself feeling hypocrisy. Fear of failure. Fear of lack of convenience.
It’s not just your straw, cup, to go containers or toothbrush- it’s everything. It’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle that we can no longer afford to avoid. If we continue with our destructive ways earth will indeed rid itself of the human disease- but how many will we hurt before then? Wake the fuck up aubry (you too) because it’s imminent. So. Not just for Cait, not just for Tap, not just for the turtles- for all life forms and Mother Earth- I pledge, no more single use plastics (if at all avoidable) You know where that really scares me and is entirely perplexing? Grocery shopping and cosmetics. Please send any references- I know I’ll fail and fail again. But all we can do is start (again & again) Anyway. This time is different- I’ve got what I call a go-bag. It has my cutlery, straw, cup and a few small containers. The bag doubles as a shopping bag if needed. #drinkdifferent#livedifferent Ps* since I got my espresso maker last December I’ve saved around 334 to go coffee cups/lids. DAMN proud of that.
