Carousel ride with the greatest kid on the planet.. 😭😍 My favorite perk of owning my own business has been the gift to be able to pause at (almost) any moment and spend time with Ocean. It’s the whole reason I have fought and worked so hard to be in this position. I always said if I have a child, I will be the one raising her - not dumping her at someone else’s house or with a nanny all day. I will be the one raising her. And I am. And it is the greatest gift I’ve ever been given!!! Do you dream of working for yourself? Checkout a few posts back when I announced my Small Business Package... I’ve made it super easy for you to start your own Floating Yoga Studio and we have some huge discounts on it for the month of January. #emailme for more info!!!
finished writing a song the other day and i’m just really digging it and it makes me so so so anxious and excited to release my creations to the world for all the hear. SOON. 🤘🏻
a favorite line from my most recent song: 👇🏻
“I’m not a pit stop along your way, I’m a destination meant for you to stay.” 😊
A RANT!!! YOGA TEACHERS: CAN WE PLEASE DO BETTER???? .... I’m feeling so frustrated. I’m sick of taking yoga classes that I’m just sitting through waiting for it to be over. Im sick of sitting in class thinking of the money and time I’m wasting on a boring class that literally had zero thought put into it. I have VERY VERY VERY little time to myself. When I choose to spend an hour in a yoga class, it might be my only hour alone that entire week. Imagine the frustration when it’s the same lame ass class. I’m sick of taking classes that literally are word for word the. exact. same. I’m sick of the lack of respect for the practice of yoga. I’m sick of classes that have zero meditation. I’m sick of classes that talk nothing about yoga (8 limbs!!! Not 1) and are just the same exact sequence everyone else teaches. I’m sick of the lack of creativity. I’m sick of the lack of care. Ahhhhhhh. I am so sad that I cannot find good yoga anymore!!!! So so so sad!!! I miss practicing 5-6 times a week and craving more!! I miss my really really good teachers.. the ones who inspired me. The ones who gave teachings that had me thinking for days after. I miss the teachers with super creative sequences and working on various areas of the body. I miss teachers who truly care. There is this mentality in the yoga world that everyone who takes a yoga class should just do a teacher training.. and then after that 5-week intensive, you’re good to teach. This is partly the fault of studios just wanting to sell out their trainings. There’s no ongoing studying. There’s no creativity and you’re left with a bunch of nervous teachers who have barely ever had a daily practice of their own and are regurgitating the words from the teacher they studied with. And the product of that is..... more students who think they need to be teachers. When did every single student HAVE to become a teacher??? It is okay to be a student!!! It’s a great thing in fact. I do not believe every single student is called to teach! Before this Yoga Alliance thing, the teachers were the master students who were CHOSEN by their Gurus who saw their dedication to the practice in all ways (not just asana). (Continued below)
What’s on my mind tonight is that I just want to thank my Mom for all of the nights when she was emotionally and physically drained, when she just wanted to rest, but she stayed up and cleaned the floors and washed the dishes.. putting my toys away, folding my clothes, and taking breaks to come soothe me if I woke up. This is a hard gig 😪 and oftentimes very thankless. And it’s not even slightly about Ocean, the most amazing tiny human on the planet. I think there are a million things you’d never know that your parents did for you until you become a parent. Thank you @lynnwettach 💕 For all you did for me and all you do for me and Ocean now. I don’t think I could have gotten through the last 2.5 years as a single mom without you. Present, active, loving parents are true warriors. Give yours some love... ❤️
