Last day of my adventure here in Greece and tomorrow I will officially be a certified yogi :) Oh life, who would have known I’d swirl out all the way here! And little me, how happy I am you held on during those dark, hard days when you just wanted to fold it and give up. The adventures awaiting for all of us are worth sticking around for, I promise 💙🌎
What do you do outside yoga (school, job, etc.)? Have you considered teaching yoga (why or why not)?
I am currently working in a sport store in the kid section (clothes) and I have been considering teaching for about 2 years!! This year is the one, my YTT is starting by the end of next month! Saying I’m excited is an understatement !
These three are my everyday struggle. I’m afraidof so many things that you won’t even imagine possible. Im afraid of failing, disappointing myself and others, of embarrassment, public speeches, standing up for myself, showing off my skills and what I’m worth and so on… The list just goes on and on. I guess it is all related to low self esteem but I’m happy to say that it’s been improving recently although I’m still quite ashamed and afraid of many things one should never be afraid of. Did you know that I haven’t told any of my friends (there are 3 exceptions!) that I created this page? I’m just… Ashamed? I guess I’ll have to get that Yogi Bhajans quote printed out… #yogibhajan #osho #empowerment #iyengar #lightonyoga #ytt #yoga #yogalife #yogalifestyle #yogaeverydamnday #beginneryoga2015 #yogalove #yogachallenge #december #ashtanga #ashtangayoga #feminist #vinyasa #vinyasaflow #shakti #woman #feminine #womanhood #empower #sacred #medicine #meditation #selflove #confidence #selfconfidence #selfesteem
Y'all, I’ve fallen into the beautiful world of @codyapp and @meghancurrieyoga is the new love of my life. My boo @wanderingwill named her as one of his teacher inspirations during our #ytt at @ashevilleyogacenter and the name stuck with me- especially because Will’s #armbalance game is so damn dreamy & I wanted to know the keys to his progress.
I’m following the plans in Meghan’s “Power Medicine” bundle and her approach is so dope- it’s a slower pace than my practice typically takes, but the heart openings make me feel like I’m cranking open parts of my body that have been closed for decades. She’s just so..agh, I can’t. If I talk about it anymore I’ll probably sound like a potential stalker. She’s the fucking bomb. Sometimes all it takes is a new teacher to stimulate your practice, and I’m so grateful for the new challenges presented by this delicious approach to yoga.
Btw, hey new followers! If you want to learn more about my journey, watch tutorial videos, find my local & national teaching schedule (including my tour dates w/ @nolatrees), or book a private yoga session, click the link in my instagram header!
As much as I’ve loved it here in AVL, I’m pretty fucking excited to get back home. I miss my pets, roommate, friends, and family- not to mention the fact that I’m practically jumping out of my skin to start teaching locally in the Raleigh-Durham area. I found this video of my #kapotasana progress that I recorded before I left for #ytt and I was reminded of how much I miss practicing in my living room with Dallas by my side- it’s the little things, you know?
I couldn’t have asked for more from this experience- my heart and soul have literally been cracked open and I just want every person on the planet to feel the same way. I know the horizon is vast and I’m excited to practice with all of you as soon possible.
Packing up my (#yoga) life and heading to Asheville for the 230hr #ytt at @ashevilleyogacenter. I’ll spend the next three weeks completely immersed in my yoga studies & I’m currently sipping that intoxicating cocktail of excitement and anxiety which accompanies all major life decisions/shifts . This is probably primarily shocking to my local Durham friends- sorry for the element of surprise, y'all, but as MJ says “I Never Can Say Good-Bye” I love you all, see you in a few weeks.
