I had a moment today where I just felt completely overwhelmed.. like I’m in WAY over my head.. I started to cry actually.. but then I had to go teach and even though that meant I had even less time to do what I was doing, I stepped into being of service to others and my problems seemed to melt away. That’s one of my favorite things about teaching yoga.. I get to be there for others. It’s an opportunity to step out of the “tunnel vision” and see the bigger picture. I’m just getting home now and even though I still have just as much to do as I did before I feel happy and calm and ready to take on whatever life send my way! Sending you all lots of love!
I’ll tell you.. one of the best things you can do to set your manifestation mode into hyper drive is find a friend who’s just as excited and motivated as you are. I imagine that the people @diabeticyogini and I cross paths with on our adventures must think we are a little insane as we excitedly bounce ideas back and forth while we crush our way up whatever we are hiking or skinning 🤪
This weekend was exactly what I needed.. two full days of being a student and really diving into the internal work that I know I need. I tend towards overextending myself.. and then I get overwhelmed with anxiety about all the things I have to do... that anxiety freezes me and honestly, I get a lot less done. This weekend was yet another reminder of the importance of pause. I might have a millions emails and messages to return today but I woke up first thing and did my practice and meditation and when I close my eyes and take a big breath I know I can return to that place of pause whenever I need it 🧘🏼♀️
We talked about identity for a little at the workshop with @yogaruparodstryker yesterday and it reminded me of a break down I had at my first 200hr Yoga training about 5 years ago.. I was in the middle of my first ski season after deciding to quit competing in snowboarding. For the 7 years prior I had attached soooo much of who I was to the identity of “competitive snowboarder” and when it was over I felt completely lost. It was like I didn’t even know how to hold myself. I felt so crushed by the change that I actually quit snowboarding for 4 years! It wasn’t until I moved back home to Colorado that I realized that the love was still there and that I could do things without being defined by them. It’s wild how easily we want to give our power away to these “identities” and in other ways now I still see myself being pulled to this surrendering of self. I’m grateful for this weekend of practice and introspection. Reminder one of the weekend for me: “Doing without defining”
Yesterday was such a long but amazing day.. I feel like the universe is pushing me heavily right now to explore the whole “caring what people think of me” thing. As any human I’ve let my fears of not being good enough hold me back from even trying! What I’ve learned so far: the best way to learn is by doing.. I will fail so I might as well learn to be ok with it and learn to learn from it... and lastly, people will judge me no matter what I do, so might as well be judged while trying to make my dreams happen. Anyone else feeling pushed to explore some limiting self beliefs? #dreamliferevolution
Super excited for a jam packed weekend! I’m headed down to Denver today to hang out with my friends from @yogaongaia and then co-hosting a Namaste and Nutrition event with members of my Dream Life Team at Yoga Pod West Denver! Then I get to spend the rest of the weekend studying with my teacher @yogaruparodstryker 🧘🏼♀️ Say hi if you see me!!
Life can be super messy sometimes.. If you look at me like I’ve got it all figured out don’t be deceived! Life is moving a million miles per hour these days and honestly, most of the time I feel like a chicken with its head cut off! This is why spending time in nature is so important to me. It’s an opportunity to pause and reconnect. It’s easy to get lost in the madness. Lately, my bestie @diabeticyogini and I have been in manifest mode together and so as we refresh our souls with that cold mountain air we also pour out our hearts to each other. Today we hiked up to hanging lake and we were up there alone for almost an hour... if you’ve ever hiked hanging lake in the summer you know how insane that is! I feel refreshed and ready to take on my next day.. even if it includes more “headless chicken” moments. #dreamliferevolution (: @diabeticyogini)
