How’s everyone doing?
A reminder to please register online for classes to reserve your spot.
We still have our intro rate- $40 for 30 days of unlimited yoga. .
Yoga truly can give you everything you need. I don’t “workout” and the only weight I lift is my own. Use the asanas (poses) to get you deeper into yourself...deeper within. That’s where the answers, wisdom, & knowledge are stored. Have a beautiful day everyone ❤️
Day 2 of #writeitoutyogis
is to write about my fears. Sharing that is pretty scary actually.
I used to always fear not fitting in. Fearing what people might think of me and always, always holding myself back for the fear of standing out and be “too much”. I still get a visit from that particular fear from time to time. She is a “dear” old friend. With help from yoga and mindfulness I’ve learned to cope with her during my practice. On my mat. With pranayama and a lot of compassion. For myself and specifically for the part of me that is feeling fearful. It works wonders 💗
I work with palliative care and at a hospice. Which means that sickness and death is very much a part of my life. Sometimes the fear of me or my loved ones getting sick creeps up on me. I don’t necessary fear death myself. But I fear leaving my kids behind, of what it would do to them.
Love and compassion is my way out of fear. Looking fear in the eyes. Speaking gently to her. Letting her know, that I see her. I know her. And I’m letting her go.

True!!! And then there were two! Can’t believe we’re into our next to last yoga 🧘♀️ teacher training weekend. Where did the last 7 months go?! 🙏💜
I’m extremely grateful and lucky that I’ll be starting my yoga teacher journey with @zunayoga
next March! I’ve been thinking of doing yoga teacher training for a while but a few factors were holding me back, however after seeing how quickly life can change I decided to take the plunge and apply! I’ll be in Bali for a month deepening my knowledge and practice of the ancient art form whilst experiencing Indonesian culture! To say I’m excited is an understatement!! 🧘♀️ 🙏 📸: @zunayoga
Bom seria se a primavera acontecesse o tempo todo, em todos os corações humanos... Florescendo, na forma de atos, palavras e pensamentos, sempre positivos... Se cada ser vivente, fosse como uma flor, bela, pura e cheirosa, toda a Terra viveria uma eterna primavera... Encante-se, transborde-se, espalhe cor, espalhe amor. Primavere-se🌹☪️🕉️🕊️

Happy weekend everyone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Make sure it is happy by spreading the power of kindness and positivity. Take a minute (or a few) to lift someone up with a kind act or a kind world. No doubt it’ll make you feel good too!
Today my hubby and I are donating 3 bin bags of clothes and shoes to a charity shop. It’s our act of kindness this weekend. Hope this motivates you to spread good vibes and to do something kind too!
Hanumanasana, also known as the Monkey Pose or Splits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s a video I took last night of my own progress, able to do it on 2 blocks now!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Strive for progress, not perfection”
- unknown. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What is “perfection” anyway?! Everyone has good days, bad days and days that are “just OK”. Whatever you’re striving for, focus on taking baby steps. Don’t go into your lifestyle or practice with a mindset that you have to be perfect all the time.
“Anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve”

A wonderful quote from a brilliant lady.
Happy Friday lovelies!

“Fear is stupid, so are regrets”
- Marilyn Monroe
"The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself."
-C. JoyBell C. 🦋🌈
Change is on the horizon and it has created space for deep introspection. Most the changes that have occurred in my life have come abruptly and with a sense of urgency, or as if an act of survival. Recently I was given the opportunity to share a part of my story and what came as a surprise, was that I found a strong sense of closure upon finishing this project, as if I closed a chapter to a large and repetitive chunk of my existence 🌀😓
I find myself now facing a change that has been made in a conscious effort to dive deeper into our pursuit of internal alchemy! Not because we need to, or because we're running away from something.... but because it's time. The world is becoming noisier by the day and now time has come to manifest the space that will nurture stillness. You can only grow from the inside out ❣️❤️
Join me tomorrow THURSDAY @chiroeasewellnessstudio
for a delicious mid week Yin Yang double! At 6:15PM we will 'Grow with the Flow' in a detoxifying yet comfortable 28 degree Hot Vinyasa, then settling into grounded stillness for 7:30PM Yin Yoga! Bless Up ☯️💜🕉
People get fascinated when they find out I’m an identical twin.
One question I get asked a lot is “what’s it like to be a twin?” - to which I always answer “well what’s it like not being a twin?” I don’t really know how to answer that, because I don’t know what it’s like to not have a twin.
She is always there and always has been there ! The girl just won’t leave me alone haha. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Even though we argue like any sisters/siblings do, I never have and never will complain about being a twin, there is definitely a weird sense of pride being a twin. Also it’s like being assigned a best friend at birth and then never having to look for one. Winning! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This year has been wonderful.
There’s been few ups and downs, but I’m focusing on the positive and the magical moments that have happened. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So glad the year isn’t over yet as next few months are super exciting and there is sooo much to look forward to.
I could literally burst with excitement if I daydream too long about these upcoming events 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-2 weeks till my honeymoon adventure
-My sisters hen parties when I come back
-Christmas (98 days left!)
-My sisters wedding.

“What a wonderful world!” - happy Tuesday!
“Blood is thicker than water”. I personally never agreed with this saying. And I do get frustrated with people who tell me this whenever they find out about my personal family situation.
I believe friends can become your family and sometimes can be more loyal and kind to you than actual blood relatives.
And with age you create your own family. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However today (with a little help from google) I learned that this quote doesn’t refer to family ties at all, so I have been using the quote wrongly for all these years!!! The saying above actually comes from “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb”.
The original saying means that blood shed in battle bonds soldiers more strongly than simple genetics.
So now I totally agree haha! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So mantra for today; surround yourself with people who are good for your mental health, who lift you up and support you. Whether they are genetically related or not does not matter. And if your family is all these things count yourself very lucky! ☺️
This TUESDAY I'll be covering the beautiful @ayami_wellness
9:30 AM Yin Vinyasa ☯️🕉
I'm gonna play around with this class and guide you through a lengthening spacious flow, and for those that want the opportunity, I'll be offering some deliscously deep adjustments to take you further into your practice! This class will be taught in homage to the Jivamukti vinyasa discipline ❣️❤️
Big love to my Kurdish queen 📸@arezmetta
for snapping up this juicy fish pose adjustment I was giving the ever beautiful 🌼@edenyoga_
I had one of my students tell me last night that my flows were feminine and very sexual 🙊🙈
I'm probably best described as a tomboy in everyday life, but in my yang yoga practice I definitely try to summon Shakti energy! Asana itself means relationship with earth, and earth to me is mother. The sequences that I teach are portions of my own flow and I've been working to clear through the root and sacral chakra for some time now. I believe that being a woman in this day and age, there's so much room for womb healing and nurturing ourselves as sexual beings! I also believe that the modern day man has much to clear and seek balance in these energetic centres too. So as much as I'm shocked to hear the comment above, I'm so humbly grateful that this energetic intention has translated 🙏🏾🦋
In honour of Shakti rising in all of us, Here's a little self lovin selfie from yours truly 🕉💜
"We all live under the same sky, but we don't all have the same horizon"
-Konrad Adenauer 🦋🌦
Where have you set your horizons? I was reminded of this quote this morning while practicing at @christopher_christou
class (thanks always for a spirited journey homie 🙏🏾). It seems daring to dream these days because of how much clutter our society has fed us. But when you feel safe inside, and brave that journey within... it is so vastly expansive and there are so many levels to these heights which you can feel safe to explore! ⬆️🌠
This is not raising the bar, or being a better version of yourself or any of that nonsense! It's about perception and releasing yourself of self limiting beliefs! We are infinite potential and I truly believe if we all took a little time to remind each other of this... you know the rest of what I'm gonna say 😜🤣
Let's build and set our horizons together as a community to lift each other's hearts! I'm super excited to be back at the amazing @chiroeasewellnessstudio
tomorrow THURSDAY for 6:15PM Hot Vinyasa & 7:30PM Yin Yoga, blessings in abundance 🕉🙏🏾💜
