There is abundance overflowing all around, open yourself up to her gifts 🥑🌿🥬🍆🍅🌶
Right now we don’t have all the answers, nobody does.
We are needing to be ok with not knowing how it’s going to turn out. We could want to fall into despair, wanting to escape the harsh realities we are facing, but this is where we find our deeper anchor. This is where we dig deeper to fully uncover and recover our primal essence. So that we can find our peace, our presence, amidst the turmoil and the haste.
Our presence requires us to be present.

And just like that it hits me. In the midst of all the preparations and head upside down spinning, holy shit 🤯 crazy work, I realize that I am about to lead my very first teacher training that is completely my own. My vision. What moves and inspires me. No compromises. That this training is an expression, an extension of me and all I’ve been working towards. I’m doing it. It's happening. NEXT WEEK.
The long process getting here has been the hardest and most beautiful thing I've ever done. I’m sure you’re not supposed to say this sort of thing, but I've almost given up a million times. This has been a journey of courage, perseverance and trust- trusting that I am capable of creating something beautiful and life changing. This is my love letter to this practice, to my students and my beloved teachers.
All of my creative energy has uncoiled into this beautiful, living offering. Here she is, my Intuitive Vinyasa Flow Registered Yoga School: 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program. Thank you for believing in me, seeing my fire and inspiring this offering. LET'S DO THIS! JAI!!! 🔥🚀
Dance til sunrise eyes 👁🤖😈
her rebirth was stunning,
she lifted herself up
from the depths of despair,
grasped her dreams,
embedded them in her heart,
and walked forward into
a future that only her will
and vision could control //

Letting the dust settle and preparing to slowly emerge from my cocoon of Metamorphosis 🦋 so many wondrous adventures, synchronicities and repeating symbols to meditate upon. What kept arising for me was joy, PURE JOY! Sure there were times of initial struggle and humility, but they gave way to a profound sense of trust, courage, unbound confidence 🌟 bliss and the sweetest, wildest Burn 🔥
Santa Barbara, see you tonight for a dusty Intuitive Flow 6:45pm @divinitree.santabarbara ✨
This morning I fell in love again with my practice. It began as a sultry slow dance with Self. Building into wild intuitive flow movement, spontaneous sahaja waves of release. Core strength, resistance bands, weighted strength training interwoven before melting into deep yin stretches and a supported backbend. Bed of arrows on big dense foam blocks, my favorite. I closed out with open meditation and mantra. 📿
Our practice doesn’t have to be one note or one size fits all. In fact Krishnamacharya (the father of modern postural practice) taught an individualized, experiential approach to yoga, letting it adjust to the practitioner’s needs not the practitioner modifying to fit into a specific asana box as is often done today. Get out of the literal and metaphoric box, step off your mat and let yourself be moved. 🌊
When was the last time you fell in love with your practice? .
When was the last time you surrendered, immersed and trusted the divine flow pulsing through you?
Few spots still available in my upcoming 200 hr YTT program (link in bio). Develop an evolving, soulful, intuitive practice and learn how to move from within. Fall in love with yoga again 💚
From dust to dust ✨
And sometimes, I paint 🐠 .
Thank you all for coming out and supporting local artists this past weekend @carrwinery such a fun evening! My creative energy gets pulled in so many wonderful directions these days, but I’m always grateful to sprawl out on the floor, nestle up with a canvas, and paint for hours. .
Paintings will be up and for sale for the next month or so, swing by to check them out in person.
I see you. I know the struggles, the stress, the anxiety, the feeling that everything is falling apart. The fear of failing, of screwing up, of having everything you've been working towards not work out in the end. I feel you. I've been going through it too.
I know it's hard to not give up or run away when shit is going down. I know too well the desire to escape, to leave, let go, find freedom in something new. That path is exciting and beautiful and worthwhile. Absofuckinlutely. But there's also something really powerful when you don't throw in the towel, when you stay and keep doing the work.
We got this. I see you, thank you for seeing me too 🌅
