It was so sweet to stop by for a few weeks and enjoy time with friends and family. No matter how far we roam around the globe, we always return to our home with giddy excitement, and leave this place feeling charged up again. The grit, the busyness, the glitz and glamour, the inspiration and determination of this awesome community and of course the food! It's the many parts and endless contrasts that make it feel so special. Feeling sad to leave, but of course it's never a good bye. See ya later! 👋🏼👨👩👧

I wasted so many years of my life worrying about whether my legs were too fat. When I look back at the girl I was all those years ago I don't see anything wrong her. She's beautiful and she can do anything she wants if she just believes in herself. I can't tell you how heartbreaking it is to me when someone tells me they're too fat to do a pose, or too old to try yoga. Not only because it's usually absolutely untrue, but because thinking that your size or your age is the determinant of your self-worth is heartbreaking. You are not your body, not your age, not your gender, not your class, not your ethnicity. If you practice yoga, you're a yogi and that's all that matters. Some people say I'm too "perfect" and that I perpetuate the myth of the ideal body. But let me tell you how far away from reality that is for me. Every day I get on my mat and I struggle. I flop around and I hear that voice in my head that tells me I'll never be strong enough. I choose not to listen to doubt. I choose faith, but it isn't easy. To this day most leggings don't fit and jeans are always weird, what fits my thighs doesn't fit my waist. And don't get my started about bras, if the straps fit it's usually a teenage size and if the cups fit the straps won't. But truth be told, it doesn't bother me anymore. I look in the mirror and I see happy, I see joy, I see love. I don't see an age or a number on a scale (I stopped weighing myself years ago). I see me, a human being whose worth cannot be defined by mere stuff, I see a spirit filled with light and love and deep peace.
Day 21 is Garbha Pindasana, Womb Embryo Pose. So many students don't believe their arms will fit through their legs. It's not about size, it's about having faith and finding a way through the impossible. For in-depth technique and alignment join my Ashtanga Primary Series course on OmStars.com. Link in my bio to join!! Be sure to tag me and @omstarsofficial in all your posts. Remember to like and comment on eachother's post so that we support eachother and create a virtual sangha. ⚡️

It's already the last day?! This crow challenge flew by (sorry weak pun 😂). Ok for the last day we are doing crow rolls. I was having a harder time than usual with this flow today but I managed to do something close to a crow. I technically think it's arm pressure pose but it's a good start. I kept the video real time (even though it looks way cooler at 4x though 😂). Thank you so much for all the cool variations and wonderful tips and tutorials. I learned so much. This is for day 7 of

Day 11 of yoga teacher training. 2 yoga classes and 2 hours of practice teaching followed by a review of Sanskrit terms. We had an amazing chakra and kundalini workshop by @dennisandkathylang (they're just the best!). They brought their crystal singing bowls and played them while they led a kundalini practice. The gong bath in savasana was such a yummy treat. You can watch me playing with the bowls in my story today 🤗. My chakras are so aligned.

Playing w/ C O N T R O L as I'm wobbling all over the freaking place. My arms are GUMMIES after a #pushday at the gym, but I had to do a little bit more #calisthenics to top it off of course. I'm extra 🤷🏻♀️. Breathe, and pull, breathe and pull---- did I breathe? Heck if I know. I think I didn't, maybe I did? Maybe I didn't? Will do better next time. Maybe. Maybe I won't. I'll try. I'll try again. Right now? No, maybe later. My arms are shot. My legs are shot. I'm shot. All done. I quit. Rawness, realness- post it all. <------ all the convos I have with myself.
