How do you breathe in a #handstand? This is a common question for many beginners on their quest to learn handstands. My handstand coach taught me this simple trick of counting, so that you are taking in and out air while upside down. It really works!

If you want to learn more, check out my #HandstandTrainer Ebook! It has all my drills, corrective exercises, tips, tricks and helps you plan a strategy for success. My book also contains 50+ videos to help you learn! Link in bio or go to

We are on day 3 of my @spiritledyoga Teacher Training. I can’t even explain to you how much this training is stretching me beyond what I thought I was capable of. The students, in my humble opinion, are THE BEST students I think I’ve ever had. They never complain, they are kind, compassionate, smart, and so very open to learning.... a teachers dream. Even though we come from different backgrounds and faiths, we all have one common thread. We are all spiritual seekers. It is amazing to just be around seekers all day. My partner, @stoked_yogi is my perfect compliment. Where I lack, she is strong. It’s all just too perfect. 🙏🏻

Me today while my mind was being BLOWN by @dr.jacob.harden teaching us about anatomy. Here was my biggest take away... ready? WARNING ⚠️ this may blow your mind.
⠀ “Posture doesn’t matter.”

I’ll just leave it there for now.😊

I came across this analogy and it made so much sense to me. I often feel like I “take the high road” way too much but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing after all.😊 I’m sorry I don’t know who this belongs to. Tag the person if you do.

You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along and shoves you or shakes your arm, making you spill coffee everywhere.

Why did you spill the coffee?
⠀ 'Well because someone bumped into me, of course!'

Wrong answer.

You spilled the coffee because coffee was in the cup.
If tea had been it, you would have spilled tea.

Whatever is inside the cup is what will come out.

Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen),
whatever is inside of you will come out. It's easy to fake it until you get rattled

So we have to ask ourselves.....what's in my cup?

When life gets tough, what spills over?

Joy, gratefulness, peace and humility?
Or anger, bitterness, harsh words and actions?

You chose!

Today let's work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation to yourself and others, kindness, gentleness, and love!

Just 4 years ago I had no control over my handstand! I could fling my legs up and find hang time, but I had no control over the entrance or the exit. In the process, I suffered many injuries as a result of improperly training.

I decided to hire the best coaches and hand balancers in the world to help me learn this skill. As you can see by today (I took this video today), my handstand is greatly improved!🤗

I just launched my Handstand Trainer Ebook sharing all my tips, technique, drills and guides to anyone who wants to learn. This ebook contains:
⠀ -56 pages with written explanations & beautiful images.
-50+ videos of each exercise.
-A beginner 30 minute handstand class.
-A daily wrist and shoulder warmup.
-Videos on technique, how to fall, and alignment so you can better understand and avoid injury.
-Printable guides to help you remember what exercises and how often.
-Everything I wish I knew 4 years ago!

My #HandstandTrainer is a downloadable PDF with clickable video links. It can be viewed with any PDF viewer, iBooks or Kindle (kindle is read-only).

It has been my life long passion to share fitness and overcoming limitations with others. 🙏🏻 If you want to learn how to do a handstand, go to the link in my profile and check it out.

How healthy are your hips? 😅😩😳💪🏻 Here is a little test for you to find out!

From your Downward Dog, lift one leg and flex the foot. Keep the hips squared (meaning don’t open the hip to compensate for inflexibility- toes are pointed down), and bring your foot to your wrist using your hip flexor muscles. Keep the leg straight, arms straight, and maintain downward dog position.💪🏻

Go!

Easy or hard? Bookmark this post and keep track of your progress. TAG someone and challenge them!

I’m a terribly wounded person, but my wounds have made me who I am. As a young girl I felt so inadequate, not good enough, and desperately incomplete. I thought I needed a husband, a family, a career.... but those things only highlighted my inadequacies.

It wasn’t until I was forced to deal with my monsters, that I finally came to a place of wholeness. A place of great peace and understanding.

Was I afraid to open Pandora’s box? Absolutely. Am I so glad I did? Absolutely. I believe we need a #mentalhealth revolution in this country (and maybe the world). We need to normalize counseling, 12-step recovery, therapy, and group meetings. “Those people” as I use to call them negatively, are the ones who find lasting peace in their circumstances. “Those people” who seek help for their monsters, are the bravest people I know.

If you are afraid to #seek help, don’t. It’s the best thing you can do for yourself and those around you.

What does true love look like to you? Is it something like this image? Yeah, this photo is great, and that day was special ... but it doesn’t tell the story of the 10 years of struggle it took to get here.
It doesn’t show how hard we have worked to keep our family together. It doesn’t show the deep wounds we both had almost tore us apart.

No, it doesn’t show any of that.

I share about our love story from time to time, so just keep scrolling if you heard it before. I feel compelled today. I know there is someone out there, right now, struggling with their marriage or relationship who needs some hope. This post is for them.

In my experience, love isn’t when too people are staring into each others eyes, holding hands, and agreeing on everything. Love is when two people are walking towards God, on their own path, accepting each other for who they are, and supporting who each want to be. To me, that is true love.

You may have picked the wrong person and you need to let them go. But, maybe there is still hope? Maybe, you have just been looking in the wrong direction?🙏🏻
