Sometimes the things you avoid are the things you need the most.
I’ve never been one to feel restrained to a schedule, but it’s the very thing that keeps my mental health in check. I’m working so much more these days after a few months of not doing much at all, mostly due to being sick for months from my stomach ulcer/gastritis which is now healed! But I feel so much better as a whole now that I have more structure in my life. Just thought I’d share that with you 😊 Now trying to apply this same mindset for all the other things I’ve been avoiding. Feels good man. Feels good.

STOP RIGHT THERE. Check this out!! You guys, this is HUGE! I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this company that is set out to change the world! Today we are launching Alo Gives, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to bringing yoga and mindfulness to 2 MILLION KIDS! That’s right! The number you see here on my hand is the age when I started yoga, Alo’s goal is to see this number decrease smaller and smaller in the future! 🙌🏼👏🏼
Alo Gives provides FREE weekly 5-minute kid friendly videos on yoga and meditation to do at home or in class, over the span of a 12 week course. We are focusing on grades 3rd-5th, a time when these tools are needed the most! Isn’t this amazing?! We couldn’t be more excited!
I found yoga at 17 years old, and I can only imagine if I had found it sooner. The tools I learned were absolutely necessary for my growth as a strong and healthy individual, in body mind and spirit. I had quite literally no idea what I was doing, but I was instantly hooked after my first class regardless! I cannot imagine my life without yoga, it has shaped me as a whole from the inside out. And for that I am endlessly thankful for this beautiful practice.
How old were you when you first started yoga? We could use your help in spreading the word on this new curriculum and bring yoga to the world!
I am tagging @sandyrosenthal , @jessicapro__ , @skclay86 , @_lovelifebrit , and @yogi_bhagavati and challenging you to take a photo with how old you were when you first started yoga and to share your story as well if you’d like! Let’s change the world!! Check out www.alogives.com to see more on this movement! #ALOGIVES @aloyoga

Hey you
Yeah you ❤️
Relax your shoulders
Unclench your jaw
Soften the muscles behind your eyes
Take a deep breath into the pit of your stomach like a balloon
Ground yourself by visualizing your energy being drawn into the center of the earth
Many times we don’t realize all that we’re holding onto, until it is released.

Been trying to focus more on strength lately, I always under estimate how much it compliments flexibility! Back when I had a personal trainer in 2015 I found the more flexible-type asanas to be so much more accessible when I had sufficient strength in my body. Many times it’s not even necessarily that we need to be more flexible, but to be stronger as a whole. I just got home from my second yoga-sculpt class at @corepoweryoga which I hadn’t taken in years, and man is it humbling forsure! Trying to switch things up from my regular vinyasa classes 😊 I’m excited to see this take my asana practice to the next level! Hope you all had a great weekend! Love y’all so much ❤️

Swipe left to see the difference between edited and unedited 😍
I like to think my post processing skills have come a long way in the last few years. My camera is pretty damn old, I shoot with a canon t3i and try to work with what I’ve got to the best of my ability.
Post processing is literally a meditation for me. I love it so much and can get sooo swept away with it. I had to rush this shoot since it was sprinkling, I really didn’t think the shots would turn out this good but the editing really pulled it through! This is what I live for as an artist tbh. I’ll never get over the endless possibilities that can be achieved through photography. ❤️🙌🏼 (object in second photo is actually my wireless shutter remote falling from my boobs🤣)

Reminding myself today that standing up for yourself doesn’t make you a bitch(per my last caption). 🙌🏼
It’s good to be assertive when the time calls for it in my opinion. And I really don’t have a problem with that. I’m a stickler for the truth and I won’t hesitate calling out bs. Which is probably why I can make others uncomfortable tbh🤷🏼‍♀️
I don’t necessarily believe in letting people walk all over you or suck the life out of you. I definitely hit a point where I’ll say no more. Enough.
It’s tough though because I’ll try my best not to engage in it. But at some point it becomes unacceptable.
There’s always going to be a defensive side within myself due to past traumas and I fully accept that about myself. I’m not going to deny it because it’s literally a coping mechanism I’ve developed from trauma, mostly being severely bullied growing up. Some will say whatever just let it go, but that completely undermines the power of what we’ve experienced. It’s offensive to tell someone to act as though it simply never happened. Trauma rewires our DNA.
I feel so much better now that it’s off my chest. I’m surprised at the amount of responses and DM’s from you guys saying you’ve experienced the same thing(still working on responding to everyone). And with most all responses it’s the same thing, “I didn’t want to talk about it because people will think I’m sooo stuck up” etc. That’s what I want to destroy. We should be able to defend our work without sounding cocky. Being legitimately cocky is a completely different spectrum than having your work infringed upon and standing up for yourself. Specially when it’s been going on in some cases for 5 years.
Thank you to everyone who has kept an open mind. It’s really not easy to talk about at all, but as I’ve said I’ve been biting my tongue for 5 years now. I have every right to say what I think and feel the way I feel. Thank you to everyone who has listened ❤️ As a result I’ve built a wall up before myself and am even more selective about who I let in. As if I didn’t have trust issues enough already. I know it will serve it’s purpose but I still feel I don’t deserve this. None of us do.

Alright guys time to spill some tea.
I want to destroy the notion that talking about being copied is petty.
Because it is down right invasive.
It is theft.
And we all have a right to protect our intellectual property and essence of who we are.
Egotistical? Possibly. But when everything you do comes from the depths of your emotions, as a product of your life experience, hard work and discipline, it’s offensive to see it diluted down into what others can only half-ass imitate. It’s empty, unfulfilling and inauthentic.
The most bizarre thing I’ve witnessed through social media is seeing people mirror you. And trust me, I want to stop talking about this, but it just keeps happening. I’m not talking inspiration. Inspiration with credit where credit is due is completely fine. I’m talking identity theft. Having every single thing you do be mirrored the next day.
Your words.
Your images.
Your aesthetic.
Your essence.
Everything that makes you, you. Everything that you have channeled on your own is stolen and watered down. Not to mention having other people profit off your creativity with no credit.
I always make a point to say that nothing is truly original. I’m not truly original. And hell I’ve probably done this unknowingly many times I’m sure! It’s natural to do it to an extent. But that doesn’t take away from the issues I’ve witnessed on this platform. I found a girl on YouTube that described the issue better than I ever could myself, so I will quote her. “They have reputation of wisdom, not the truth of it. Having become wise seeming instead of wise. They take the fruits of your labor so others will believe that they are wise or creative without connection to the intuition based front of wisdom that understanding or creativity stems from. Copying others makes their expression a degraded and faulty expression of the truth that those people had access to and also robs those who truly accessed it because the person takes on the false covering that they are like them to reap the benefits without having the substance. They begin degrading the knowledge or idea over time.”. CONTINUED BELOW IN COMMENTS👇🏼

You’ve only got one life here in this dimension, so why waste it trying to be someone else? The more you try to be someone you’re not, the more you neglect your souls purpose. Don’t let your soul go to waste. Let that sink in. #lookinward 👁
