Buddha once said the key to happiness is learning to let go and how perfect of a season to practice this! Just as the trees change their leaves and eventually let them go, we must also remember the importance of the art of letting go. I wanted to have a hard power yoga session today, but my happy little guys wanted some lovin. I could’ve gotten mad, locked them out of the room, but then I wouldn’t have felt their kisses, saw their goofy smiles, and felt comforted by their presence. So, I surrendered, let go, and rode the wave of unpredictability that is life 🤙🏽🧘🏻♀️
✨ embrace imperfections and love your body because you are beautiful ✨
I was blessed with a small chest. Like not even an A cup small chest. I would never say anything negative about anyone else’s appearance but when it came to my own, I was so mean. I hated my small boobs and felt like I didn’t have a womanly figure. At 22 I got saline implants because I felt like then I could finally feel good about my body. 👉🏻 Now at 38 I know that real self love comes from the inside, not what you look like in the mirror. When I decided that I wanted to get my 16 year old implants removed earlier this year, I was nervous that my self confidence would be tested. I was scared. Would I revert back to my old ways and hate on myself? Would I still feel confident and sexy? The implants were making me so sick and my health was more important so I decided to get them out. Breast implant illness is real and I hate that women are not told how much of a risk getting implants really is! Boobs are not worth sacrificing your health. I might have been smiling in photos but behind that smile I had unexplained rashes on my body, ringing in my ears, dizziness, red itchy eyes, digestion issues, night sweats, extreme exhaustion and horrible anxiety. .
It’s been 5 months and almost all my symptoms have gone away. getting them out felt like the next step in becoming 💯 me. They were an old crutch that I didn’t need anymore. I know that there are women out there who feel like big breasts would fix things and girls they won’t. Do the inside work and you’ll start loving what you see in the mirror. Maybe you have implants and you are thinking about going back to natural, GO for it! I have never felt more beautiful! What we see in the mirror reflects the compassion and confidence we have on the inside. Remember that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and that there is only one YOU. ✨

'CLOSING A LOOP'
Following circles of life.
Transitioning from point A to point B.
Speaking out what has to be said.
Taking farewell in timelessness hugs. "... I just thought, come with me to Vegas"
If not now, when else?
If not a full Yes, it's a No.
Taking what's yours.
Living life knowing that this is a one way ticket direction.
'Closing a loop'.
With light heart
Full of gratitude.
As a yoga coach I help sensitive woman to transition from different emotional states, find balance between private and proffestional life and close old chapters of their life's. ..

Yet another old photo that never got shared with IG world....
In reminiscing on these photos I’m taken to back to a time when I was exploring a whole new world. I had some ideas what I wanted...but really I had no freaking clue what I was doing and where I was going. But what an exciting time.
6 years later I’m again embarking on a new adventure. I’m clearer on what I want in life. I have a lot more clarity and confidence. But still...have no freaking clue what’s going to happen next. And that’s ok...because I trust that everything is as supposed to be and I can create my own reality.
That’s what practicing yoga (and teaching yoga) has done for me....Strength. Confidence. Clarity. Trust. Calm. Self Awareness. Just to name a few.
Onward. Welcoming the shift.... And trusting the process...
Sometimes we need to take a moment to just be.
We've become a culture of distraction, constantly looking for ways to avoid the uncomfortable emotions that we feel. Think about it - the last time that you ever felt anxious, sad, stressed out, bored, lonely, or depressed, you probably just turned on the television, grabbed some kit-kats 🍫, or maybe that wine bottle 🍾 that's been anxiously awaiting you to get home, or maybe you just picked up your phone to scroll through Instagram.
Does this sound about right?! We're all guilty of this, because distraction is a form of escapism, and escapism means that you'll never truly come to terms with your emotions by engaging in habitual behaviors. You lose the ability to really reflect, accept, and resolve.
Next time you find yourself seeking distraction from the uncomfortable emotions that you may be feeling, just stop yourself. Allow yourself to feel that emotion wholeheartedly. Go for a walk, take several deep breaths to come back to yourself, talk to someone, find a healthy substitute for your behaviors.
Yes, it's going to feel uncomfortable. It's supposed to, because that's where the real work comes in. Ultimately, it will set you free, because emotional freedom is what we all really need. #consciousliving #dothework

I luoghi che chiamiamo casa sono sempre i più belli ai nostri occhi, soprattutto se questi luoghi hanno una città che si riflette dentro 💙
"Yoga at home or in a studio?" www.happywithyoga.com
"Comprendi che dovrai sempre comprendere, ma poche volte sai compreso"
Quante volte siamo cestino della spazzatura altrui.
Quante volte accogliamo ogni genere di energia pesante da chi ci circonda.
Quante volte sentiamo che in noi vige una grande comprensione (e Amore) per chi ci è accanto ma non proviene altrettanto flusso dall'altro.
Quante volte vorremmo urlare contro qualcuno la Verità o semplicemente la nostra Verità, ma sappiamo che non servirebbe.
Poiché ognuno ha il suo livello: il suo livello di Comprensione, di Vita, di Esperienza, di Amore.
E possiamo solo rispettare: rispettare una distanza, una parola, una decisione, una reazione. .

Dedicato a chi si è armato di tanta pazienza ed ha deciso di Restare.
To all the healers... thank you for all that you do.
What an honor it is to hold space for others. With that being said- in order to do this effectively (and long term) it is critical that we intentionally set aside time to do our own healing, creating space to process, rest, cry, recharge etc...
Also, healthy boundaries are important for us to practice 💓✨
