There is no greater journey than the journey to feel your pure, beating, loving, grateful heart. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’œ. Houston, you have been the pulse behind my heartbeat for the last 3.5 years. Please join me before I spread my wings and FLY @blackswanyogahouston 5:30 or 7pm TOMORROW for my final Houston flows!!! ๐Ÿ˜ญ

I have NEVER EVER felt the level of gratitude๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ , the level of TRUE authentic happiness๐Ÿ˜Š EVERY single day I wake up, the most welcoming commUNITY ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ the loving vibesโค๏ธ, and witnessed the transformations Iโ€™ve seen in YOU, in me, and this city๐Ÿ•‰๏ธ!!! I canโ€™t believe the day has come for me to say goodbye๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ. Today was emotional and AMAZING๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ฅ. I am SOOOO grateful for all 50 some of you who blessed me with your presence. We created magic ๐Ÿ”ฎtogether and I CANNOT wait to feel it again tomorrow (real tears just writing this๐Ÿ˜ฅ). ALL of your love and support in my classes (as well as the sweet words and energy I feel) from my yogis and my graduated trainees have served as my launch board to catapult me out of my comfort zone. In addition to all of my yogis, Iโ€™m so grateful for @blackswanyoga @onnit @jasonhavey for believing in me, for @blackswanyogi and @beast.yoga for Co-creating our visions, to @blackswanyogahouston for ALL of the amazing opportunities and classes, and to Claire and @oliviak for trusting me with YTT. Without all of you, these dreams wouldnโ€™t be possible. And now itโ€™s time for me to spread my wings and fly off to Dallas. I have SO much to be grateful for and I know Iโ€™m so lucky and blessed๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ. I want you ALL to feel my love and gratitude on my last day at the space that has allowed me the opportunity to become the person I am today. And to think this is only the beginning just had my imagination going wild. Thank you from the bottomest bottom of all bottoms in my deepest deep of hearts โ™ฅ๏ธ. So. Much. Love.

Every year I realize more and more how the gifts you passed along to me are the most valuable gifts I could ever dream of.
I hope you know how much youโ€™re loved. Not just by Dad and my sisters and I, but by everyone who meets you!
I canโ€™t wait to celebrate YOU when I get to AZ Wednesday!
You said it to my sisters and I for 18 (maybe more) years so now I get to say it back to you. Love you forever, like you for always, as long as Iโ€™m living, my baby (MOMMA) youโ€™ll be!!!! โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ

Words cannot express how GRATEFUL I am for this Houston yoga community which has built SO much more since stepping foot in Houston for the 1st time 4 years ago!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽ‰โค๏ธ Yโ€™all have made a huge impact and I know you will continue to do so!! Itโ€™s such a feeling of bittersweet to leave because I could stay here forever content as can be, training more people to be teachers, teaching more students, more classes, workshops, and watching ALL of your practices and LIVES evolve. Yet, I choose to follow my light ๐Ÿ’ซ and heart to step out of that comfort zone with @blackswanyogi and make some magic happen at @blackswanyogadallas! ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ“ฟ๐Ÿ’œ. Itโ€™s all about SERVING the community, and not just TAKING from the community. We have places to go and people to introduce to @blackswanyoga!! See you on your mats @blackswanyogahouston! Cannot wait!!!

The Universe loves grateful people. The more grateful you are, the more you get to be grateful about. Itโ€™s that simple. Life really is that simple. We make it enormously complicated, but it doesnโ€™t have to be. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ. Words canโ€™t express how grateful I am for SO many things right now.
Iโ€™m so grateful for my yoga retreat time in Tulum. ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ‘™ Iโ€™m so grateful for this gorgeous yoga dome room we got to practice in. ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ Iโ€™m so grateful for finding my passion in sharing yoga.
Iโ€™m so grateful for the challenges in my life that make me stronger. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ Iโ€™m so grateful for my yogis who showed me so much love yesterday and today. ๐Ÿ˜˜

Iโ€™m so grateful for the precious and simple Mayan family that welcomed us in their โ€œhouseโ€ aka thatch hut teepee (no kitchen, no walls, no electricity, not a worry in the world besides their babies sleeping in hammocks safely so snakes and animals couldnโ€™t get them). Iโ€™m so grateful for my 300 bug bites from Mexico. They teach me to appreciate unitchy and smooth skin. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ Iโ€™m so grateful for my 3.5 years in Houston. Turning my world upside down and stepping outside of my AZ comfort zone has brought me so much light, love, and purpose.
Iโ€™m so grateful for @blackswanyoga @blackswanyogadallas @blackswanyogahouston @blackswanyoga @blackswanyogaretreats And @blackswanyogi

I could go on and on but gratitude is such an infectious and addicting vibe to feel. It becomes a way of life. Once you feel it, you want to share it all day everyday. Be grateful not only for the highs and positives but also for the lows and challenges. Without getting uncomfortable, how can we change?

With never-ending love for ALL of you and this city, NAMASTE ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ โค๏ธ Donโ€™t forget to come celebrate with Claire and I this Saturday 2pm at Belle Station @bellestationhtx. See you there!! The more the merrier ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚ we we celebrate our โ€œsee you soonโ€ farewell!!

Often times in life, things get twisted. We take things personally and make mountains out of mole hills for no reason. Just breath. Just smile. Just know that "this too shall pass". When it does, you're a stronger๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ, wiser๐Ÿ’ก, more experienced version of yourself. The more we can balance ourselves โš–๏ธthrough breath, meditation, releasing power/control, and accepting the fact that our lives are in God's (or Universe) hands, the lighter and brighter our lives become. ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ซ Although I was SO looking forward to seeing you all tonight and teaching my Tuesday night classes this evening, some things got "twisted" (like my eagle wrap legs and twisty pants ๐Ÿ˜„) & apparently that wasn't in my plan.

As long as you follow your intuition, there will never be such thing as "going down the wrong road" in life. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ. Embrace the journey which should be full of unexpected twists and turns. Those are the lessons and the growth spurts which may hurt and challenge you at the time, but in retrospect, they are such a gift from God. Recognize the moments when your gut speaks to you in an uneasy way๐Ÿšฉ๐Ÿšง. Recognize the moments when your gut feels content and at peace๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿฝโ˜ฎ๏ธ. Every action and thought is created out of love or fear. Try to focus on making your actions and thoughts out of love rather than out of fear. Fill your mind and words with positivity and presence rather than out of negativity and past/future. Then sit back, thank your intuition, and watch your world flourish is such a beautiful organic way ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ“ฟ๐ŸŒ  every single day!! Join me at @blackswanyogahouston at 5:30 or 7pm tomorrow as we explore our intuition, patience and balance our lives. #flowtogrow #intuituonneverlies #trustyourgut #patience #timingiseverything #enjoythejourney #clubkjoy #slowdown #findstillness #detoxtoretox #loveup #riseabove #keepgrowing #keeplearning

We are all a constant work in progressโœŒ๐Ÿฝ. Nothing is a finished product and nothing is permanent. As I was hurrying to an appointment today, I saw this structure and had to stop๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝ. Take a moment to appreciate little gifts of thought that fall into your daily life๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŽ. Listen to your intuition and allow your feelings to speak to you. This unfinished construction project reminded me to find the beauty in the construction of our highest versions of ourselves. I'm not speaking of the physical construction like the shell of this building you see behind me. The emotional, spiritual, and soul enriching construction is what I'm referring to, allowing life lessons to build us into the amazing beings we evolve into, day in and day out. Come join me tomorrow night at 5:30 or 7pm at @blackswanyogahouston as we appreciate whatever stage of construction you may be in today ๐ŸŒ . I typically wouldn't have posted the video (swipe โžก๏ธ) because I was wavering like the wind you can hear in the clip. I could have let ego take over and say it was an awful handstand attempt๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿฝ. I had massive cramping in my feet (needed my banana ๐ŸŒ for potassium) as you can see. I was flipping and flopping. I felt bloated and gross. Yet that's part of the construction. Lay down the foundation. Make mistakes. Embrace your glitches. Because they are what make you #perfectlyimperfect. Can't wait to sweat๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ˜˜ with you all tomorrow and HUGE thanks to all 40+ of you who joined me in my ENERGIZED 11:30 party on our mats today!!!!! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’›.

#prayforVegas ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธ. The only guns that need to be fired out into the universe are #LOVEguns. With all of this crazy negative energy being circulated in our world, it is MANDATORY for ALL of us positive beings to come together and make the shift as ONE๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒŽ๐Ÿ’š. As my yogis know, we shoot love guns (see my bound hands in this pic) into the world in every class I teach๐Ÿ’ซโค๏ธโœจ. Keep sending those love arrows๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’˜๐Ÿ’˜. One person at a time, we will make this beautiful world a more peaceful place to celebrate our greatest gift which is life โค๏ธ๐Ÿ”ซ. Outfit by @fitfitactive and photography by @leah_lipson ๐Ÿ’ฅ.
