to follow up my post on the ability of Instagram to build connection, I also am very aware it can build false notions of what our lives look like, so to keep it real, here’s a photo from my practice last night, in all its low quality grainy glory. ⠀ ⠀ I know a lot of my feed contains pretty beachside photos, and while I am blessed enough to live close to the ocean, most of my practice looks nothing like that. ⠀ ⠀ most of my practice takes place in my little yoga room that is too small to get photo of my full body in any standing pose. it’s dimly light (because it’s dark early AF) and the window shades are prettttty ugly.⠀ ⠀ but this space is also my little yoga sanctuary. it’s my own space to practice, meditate, and find a bit of calm. and it’s everything I need. because yoga isn’t about pretty photos, it’s about coming back to our breath, coming back to ourselves, tuning into our minds, and tapping into our highest selves. ⠀ ⠀ little reminder, to myself and all of you, that your life is beautiful even if it doesn’t always feel insta worthy 💗 . . . #realstagram #myyogapractice #yogajourney #yogaathome #yogaforall #gratitude #lifeisbeautiful #yogaeveryday #yogagoals ⠀ ⠀
I started my @eatflowlive account looking for connection. I had recently moved to San Diego and knew no one. I quite frankly just really wanted to build friendships. But I wasn’t looking for the surface level kind, I wanted real connection - women I could have raw, heart to heart conversations with. Fast forward a year and a half and I’m in Bali, at @waterthruskin ’s retreat. A retreat I only found because my Instagram turned IRL friend @avajohanna suggested I follow her. Here, I not only met some incredible souls from around the world, but @maracimatoribus who I instantly felt a soul connection with ✨and know we will be forever friends. the algorithms, number of likes, engagement trends, etc. are ridiculous. but the real life connections and friendships that this platform can cultivate are amazing. and for that, I am so grateful 💗 . . . . #yogafriendships #partneryoga #pinchamayurasana #wheelpose #yogainbali #yogaretreat #yogafamily #igyogacommunity

in a season filled with lots of holidays treats, I’ve been focusing not on what I shouldn’t have, but on filling up on nourishing, veggie filled meals 🥑🥗 @thepatio101 hit the spot today with their veggie & grain bowl 👌🏼 although I eat a vegan diet 95% of the time, I do eat fish from time to time when my body craves it and I’m ok with that 👍🏼 today I added shrimp to my bowl & it was delicious 🙃 side note: @thepatio101 brussel sprouts were low key the MOST delicious brussel sprouts I’ve ever had. I’m definitely going to try to recreate the maple syrup / sriracha goodness at home 🤤 if you’re in the San Diego area, go and order them RN! #sandiegofood #plantbasedeats #nourishnotpunish #eattolive #healthylifestyle #healthcoach #wellnessblogger #nourishingfood #veggiebowl

one of the most powerful things in life is to stand fully in your truth. how often do you say things that you don’t fully mean? how often do you sugar coat the truth? how do you show up in your relationships? are you being fully authentically you? (this goes for your relationship with yourself as well btw) this is no easy task. there are still plenty of days I say “I’m fine” when I’m not. but each day I’m working on being more raw and honest, with myself and with others. the more I stand in my truth, the more FREE I feel. . . check in, what is one way you can stand more fully in your truth? how can you speak your truth in your relationship with yourself or with a friend? . . . #personalgrowth #myyogajourney #therisetheshine #holistichealth #sandiegohealthcoach #yogaoutdoors #yogagirl #abalancedlife #speakyourtruth
finding balance △ . between working a full time job, getting my @nutritionschool health coach certification, teaching yoga, my own yoga practice, and trying to have (some) social life, balance used to feel like an elusive concept rather that reality. . I’ve overloaded my schedule more times than I can count and finally 🙈have found a few key strategies that help me find balance when busy: . 1) PRIORITIZE. review your to do list, decide what the top 3-5 priorities are for you to accomplish this week. highlight them, schedule them into your calendar. make them non negotiable, everything else comes after. . 2) SAY NO. no is such a powerful word but I felt incredibly uncomfortable using it. Just because someone asks you to do something doesn’t obligate you to the task. decide if you have time, weigh how important this is to the other person and to you, determine if it can be postponed if needed, or just simply decline. . 3) SCHEDULE “ME TIME”. set aside time for you to relax and decompress (a yoga class, a hot bath, cooking a homemade meal). whatever it is, put it in your calendar and don’t overbook yourself. that time to yourself is precious and let’s you refill your cup. . . whether your schedule is always busy, or getting crazy for the holiday season, I hope these tips help you all 🎄😘 share below how you’re finding balance over the holidays 👇🏼👇🏼 . . . . #yogagirl #boatpose #navasana #yogainbali #balancepose #yogaforstrength #findingbalance #healthyholidays
nothing in the wild ever stays the same, even now I can feel the color of my heart changing @wilderpoetry . . . I had a very productive morning (grocery shopping, food prepping, apartment cleaning, and yoga flowing) followed by a very lazy afternoon (couch lounging, face masking, kitten cuddling). my favorite way to spend Sunday ☺️ . . . . pose inspired by @charlottesyoga_ wearing @vuoriclothing . #sandiegoyoga #therisetheshine #yogagirl #yogaoutside #backbend #fishpose #openheart #sundaymotivation
the most indulgent self care: Balinese massage followed by a flower filled bath 🌸🌺 . . when we think of self care, this bath is the kind of luxurious experience that might come to mind. and while it was SO luxurious and smelled beyond amazing, my self care looks like this....basically never 😹 . self care = taking care of your soul . today, self care meant attending a yoga class by @yoga_with_jenna that gave back to a local non profit 💗 it meant filling my belly with the most delicious vegan eggs Benedict at @trilogysanctuary , and it meant napping with @apow81490 and the kittens 🐱🐱🧔🏻 . taking care of your soul can be luxurious, but more often than not it is the simple things, done with presence and love. . how are you taking care of your soul this weekend? 💗 . . . . #baliflowerbath #flowerbath #baliadventures #selfcaresunday #selfcare #soulfulliving #wellnessblogger #healthcoach
when I’m in a funk, movement is my go to solution. . whether it’s a creative flow on my mat or a sweat session at the gym, there is something about moving that so easily allows the negative emotion to move through me and be released. It brings me back to a centered place of being, where I can think more clearly and process that emotion more easily. . . when you’re in a funk, what’s your go to? 👇🏼(movement, meditation, journaling?) . . . . wearing @aloyoga pc @apow81490 #beachyoga #sandiegoyoga #aloyoga #dailyyoga #myyoga #wellnesscoach #yogaforlife #yogagirlsdaily #yogaforbeginners
proof that a plant based diet can be freakin deeeeelicious 👌🏼🤤 when I first went vegan I really had no clue what TF I was doing. the soles of my feet and palms of my hands went orange from eating a diet mostly composed of baby carrots and hummus 🥕🥕🙈 . .it took me a bit of time to figure it out but I can say now I’ve got it down pat 🙋🏼‍♀️ . . i never feel deprived and can throw together a balanced, filling, and delicious meal in minutes . . thinking about going plant based? DM me - I’d love to help you avoid orange palms! 👍🏼🥕 . . . . #plantbaseddiet #veganfood #wellnessblogger #holistichealthcoach #goingvegan #eattolive #buddhabowl #balieats
trust your path, surrender to the universe . . as someone who always has a plan and a color coded, alphabetized step by step outline to get from point A to point B, surrendering to the universe doesn’t always come easily 😜 . . hindsight has helped me tremendously in learning to trust the universe. looking back, I can see the wisdom to every failure, every obstacle, every heartbreak, every thing I thought I needed in my life but didn’t receive, or lost. . look back at your life and see how it all unfolded to bring you to where you are today, to build you into the person you are. there is a wisdom and a reason for everything that happens. look for the lesson. trust in the journey. the universe has your back ♥️ . . . in love with this holiday red by @aloyoga pc @apow81490 #aloyoga #trustthejourney #universehasyourback #beagoddess #beachyoga #sdyoga
ever wanted to travel solo but thought, I could never do that? . . during my time in Bali I received so many messages saying how amazing it was that I was traveling solo 🛫 and how they wished they could do that too 🌎 . . you CAN. and I promise it’s not as scary as it seems; in fact it’s really freaking fun and empowering. . NEW BLOG is up (link in bio 🤓) with all my top tips on feeling comfortable traveling solo. have more questions, leave em below 👇🏼 . . . #solotraveller #womenwhoexplore #yourbestlife #seetheworld #baliadventures #yogainbali #womenwhotravel #wellnessblogger
where do you feel most at peace? . for me, it has always been in nature. sitting at the edge of the sea or among the mountains, there is a quiet surrender when sitting in the presence of nature’s beauty. the trivial worries of the day melt away and I am left with only an appreciation of the current moment 🏔 . . . as we head into the holiday season, notoriously a busy and stressful time, little reminder to carve out some time to find your peace 💫 . . #optoutside #baliwaterfall #baliadventure #naturegirl #peacefulmind #healthyholidays
be the person who cares. be the person who makes the effort, the person who loves without hesitation. be the person who bares it all, the person who never shies away from the depth of their feeling, or the intensity of their hope. be the person who believes - in the softness of the world, in the goodness of other people, in the beauty of being open and untethered and trusting. be the person who makes people feel seen, the person who shows up. trust me when I say — be the person who cares. because the world doesn’t need any more carelessness, nay more disregard; because there is nothing stronger than someone who continues to stay soft in a world that hasn’t always been kind to them. — bianca sparacino— . . . . #liveyourtruth #yogainbali #warrior3 #lifeofpurpose #yogaeveryday #myyogalife
step boldly towards your dreams ⚡️ . moving beyond your comfort zone, believing in the power of your dreams, and seizing new opportunities takes courage and self belief. it’s not easy and it’s a bit uncomfortable. however, the payoff is everything. . the boldest decisions I’ve made in the past few years — whether is was moving cross country jobless, trusting in a new relationship, applying for a job I believed was out of my reach, or traveling solo halfway round the world — have all been the choices with the biggest payoff. they have brought me new experiences, friendship, love, and incredible memories. . declare what you want. say it aloud. share it with others. proclaim it and reaffirm it. the trust in yourself, and believe that the universe will support you when your heart is fully behind it. . . . #universehasyourback #believeinyourdreams #dreambig #healthcoach #positiveperspective

currently on hour 42 of 45 of my trip back to San Diego. its been longggg but making the best of it with some time on my mat. I’ve been thinking of the travel home as part of the journey to enjoy vs. just a means to an end, which has been hugely helpful in keeping it enjoyable☺️ all about perspective 😉 . . would you do airport yoga or do you think it’s weird 😜lmk below 👇🏼 . . #yogatravel #airportyoga #postivevibes #yogavideo #yogaflow
