Little (slobbery) reminders from the
universe not to take anything too seriously
- including my practice... 🐶

How yogis wait for the subway... 🚊
🤣
Truth be told, I had to stop myself from using a super cheesy pun (“Underground yogi” was my original caption and then I changed it to “Yogi train of thought” after that 🤦🏻‍♀️) ... but honestly I’m just hoping you can forget all about my bad puns for a minute and instead focus on how pretty this renovated NYC subway station really is! 🙌🏼
🌸
ps. I know that there are some gorgeous train stations around the world - where do you think the most incredible one is?

Most of what I know,
I’ve learned by falling
and getting back up.
The ground has taught
me more about flight
than the clouds
ever could.

Tomorrow is International Day of HAPPINESS!! 😍
Did you know that *human connection* is one of 6 habits that help create long-term happiness in us?!
(Not that I really need another excuse to connect with @tditty2 & make shapes together 😂, but hey, that sounds like a perfect one! 👌🏼)
.
I’ll be celebrating Happiness tomorrow with @dybrkr & @lgusa and yoga and dancing into the sunrise... all from the top of the One World Observatory!! #cantwait
☀️
ps. Swipe left to see how we get into this fun partner pose. 😍
Which shape is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?
.
pps. The other 5 habits for sustainable happiness are: gratitude, positive outlook, purpose, mindfulness, and generosity. ❤️
Which one do you practice most?

pretty kind.
Pretty funny.
Pretty smart.

➡️ Help me caption this pic! 🍍
Well, I was gonna be super cheesy (as per usual 😂) and say something about how we should all be more like a pineapple (and be sweet on the inside and wear a crown 👑),
hah, BUT I think you guys will do a much better job coming up with a cute caption that won’t make us all PINE for something better... 🤦🏻‍♀️

Share yours below! I’ll feature the best ones on my story! 😍
❤️ Happy Friday friends!

Your life is a reflection
of your thoughts.
If you change your thinking,
you change your life.

Enjoying the endless shades of blue from my hotel room at @fssurfside ... 😍meanwhile, the secret behind the Hairstand pose is now revealed thanks to this mirror. 😂
.
ps. I know, I know.. yogis are weird, we see a mirror & take a selfie, but not exactly the same way most people do... 🙈

Reach for the stars but keep your
feet on the ground ⭐️
Making shapes with my sis-STAR
103 floors up,
1353 feet high,
in an all-glass box,
that extends 4.3 feet off
the edge of the building... 🙈
I know it sounds crazy, but anything feels possible when you’re with someone who’s got your back...
#whpsheinspiresme ❤️
Who has your back, no matter what? Tag them here!

Snippets of an actual acro-yoga conversation that are WAY more innocent than they sound:
“Do you want to be on top or bottom?”
“Let’s do it again but a little slower.”
“My hips need to be over your hips.”
🤣❤️🙊
Haha, tell me something you’ve said to your acro partner that easily could’ve been taken out of context & tag them here!👇🏼

Also, check out my story to see how @tditty2 & I got into this fun partner pose!

You don’t have to move mountains.
Simply fall in love with life. Be a
tornado of happiness, gratitude and
acceptance. You will change the world
just by being a warm, kind-hearted
human being. ❤️

My new mantra, because Kindness is free, and it makes this world a more beautiful place to live.
Happy Friday friends, and Happy International Women’s Day to ALL of you strong, beautiful ladies! 😍

Reunited with my (acro) partner in crime, @tditty2 & I couldn’t be happier. 💙
#SisterTime
We have SO MANY similarities, but our 8-inch height difference can sometimes be tricky when trying out a new partner pose!
.
In this one we each took turns doing handstand & cobra, and it was so interesting to see how our height difference affected the final shapes of the posture. Tova will be posting her handstand variation, and here‘s a couple of mine (which do you like best - 1 or 2? I couldn’t decide 🙈)
.
Swipe left for the video of how we get into & out of this pose, and for a glimpse of how much fun we have when the two of us get together. 💙
