Dreamy Day in Waterton Lakes National Park
Don't need a specific day to celebrate but glad there is one! Happy fathers day! #fathersday #dogdad
3 best friends flew from around the country & met in Seattle to road trip the Pacific Coast Highway from Olympic State Park to San Francisco. We drove 1338 miles in 4 days. We saw one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. 5 different climate zones. 4 types of bodies of water. 3 states. 4 Native American reservations. 3 idiots & a dog. One epic adventure 😋 #adventureisoutthere
More than once I have had people tell me when they look at my Instagram account they can not tell that I am a yoga teacher.
I have very few flashy photos in yoga postures, or yoga related content at all.
This is because of a few reasons:
↠ I have wanted to avoid falling into the trend of making people think that yoga is only yoga if you are doing the BIG fancy poses.
Even though the intrigue to do these huge poses was what first sparked my interest in yoga, and has since changed my life forever.
↠ I have hesitated being known as the “yoga girl”.
Words like yoga, meditation and mindfulness have such a huge stigma. Everyone has their own opinion that is usually based on false information and a assumptions.
I believe yoga is a way of life.
It is a forever evolving practice of body movements, mindfulness, humility and discipline.
For me, Yoga has evolved beyond a practice I do a few times a week, into what is now a way I live my life every day.
If this flashy pose here inspires you to begin your practice. Hell Yes!
If it scares you away from ever beginning your yoga journey, I am so sorry.
I just hope that when you come to the online space you are doing so mindfully, with your own boundaries in place.
And potentially my biggest hope for you, is that when you are struck with the plague of judgement and fear, that you can look inside yourself for the inner work you are being guided to do.
I don’t think yoga is a trend, I think it is a movement that will continue to grow and grow.
Do you agree?

This trip was just what I needed. Lots of time outside, with family, and some time to paint for fun too (plus lots of baby time 😁). I'm so grateful my parents always engrained in us that you can always make room in your life for adventure and family, even if it's "on the cheap." Most of my family vacations growing up were very much on a budget--camping or squeezing 9 people into 2 hotel rooms and making everyone order from the dollar menu or making sandwiches on the side of the road. But we still went, and I'll always be grateful for that "make it work" spirit. 💗
🧜♀️For her the ocean was more than a dream, it was a place she needed to visit to find herself. And when she returned to the city , you could see the sun in her eyes, the wind in her hair, and taste the infinite salt on her lips 🧂 🌊- Jose Chaves
I spent a lot of time watching the ocean breathe over the weekend - the sound of waves crashing over the sand is heavenly.
Sitting with them, watching them. Just experiencing them.
Drove forever for this gem 💎
