Happy FryYay FlyDay!🚁 It’s days like this when I especially love my job. I’m wayyy up on a glacier in a National Park that doesn’t normally allow helicopters to land. But since my passenger is a glaciologist from the National Park, we get to be here. And I get to #Snowga where no yogi has been before...😊 . Testing out my 10 second timer skills with portrait mode on my iPhone...can’t believe I pulled it off!😅 . Have you tried a Portrait Mode selfie? .

If you had told me 2 months ago that I would enjoy taking a stroll barefoot in the snow, I would tell you you’re nuts...like completely off your rocker. But here I am... . I recently started practicing the breathing and cold therapy techniques taught by @iceman_hof and I’m hooked! . I’ve added an ice cold shower to my daily routine, which is crazy, cuz if you know me, you know I REALLY dislike being cold. But the thing is, I’m not cold. . Wim says, “We are the alchemists of our own bodies. You can change your own chemistry just by breathing, cold exposure, and mindset.” And I believe him! . Have you tried it? #wimhof . Wishing you all a #MagicAsanaMonday ✨💖💫 Check out my Stories for today’s #helicopter #glacier #adventures ! .

How to walk through the front door like a badass! . So excited for this week’s #YogiSeeYogiDo chosen by the Queen of Badasses Herself @susanbishopyoga 🙌 who first saw it from @dylanwerneryoga #ClimbingTheWalls 😂😂😂 . . My best advice when you try this one: Watch my entry a few times and notice I FIRST place my front foot as high as I can go, THEN I press into the wall behind me using my hands behind me. I tried it a few ways before this that weren’t so stable, but once I got this entry, it was easy, and FUN! Oh and @yogapaws 🐾 for grip are a big help! . SAVE this video and TAG me when you try it!!!👏👏👏 .

Did you know I was born into a Commune in Mexico? Yup, my Mom’s parents sent her to an alternative school in Mexico called Shimber Beris when she was 14. She ended up staying for over a decade. She met my Dad (also a student,) they got married and had babies...as did many of the other students at this “school.” . That’s a whole other story, but I want to tell you what she did when she came back to the States. She was in her mid 20’s, had never driven a car, had a job, or had to take care of herself. Until now! My parents split up and all of a sudden my Mom was alone and had no idea how to be an adult. But she figured it out. She saw an ad in the paper for a job as a secretary at @nasajpl. She made up a resume that sounded like she had experience, but really she had none...couldn’t type, file, anything. And somehow she got the job! All of a sudden she was a secretary at Jet Propulsion Labs, with a bunch of forward thinking, educated science and tech people...way out of her element. Besides meeting Carl Sagan, (who she said held secret weekly meetings about life on other planets and UFO’s,) she likes to brag that the very first computer on a secretary’s desk was at JPL. It was called an automated office data system, AODS, and she was so proud of it! She and her new boyfriend would teach disco dancing in one of the larger offices during her lunch hour. Those were quite the times! . And my Mom is one cool Lady! . So I was especially proud to tell her that I flew a job for JPL the other day! I got to fly the new Mars robot out to a glacier so they can test its capabilities on uneven terrain. Did you see my Stories?! If you missed it, you can check out my highlighted Stories. And hopefully I’ll get some footage of the actual first flight of the Mars Robot to share with you! . Speaking of bragging rights, being that I’m a #pilot working for NASA, wouldn’t that mean that technically I’m actually now an Astronaut?! 👩‍🚀😆🤷‍♀️ Hahaha Happy FlyDay! . #aviation #flygirl #helicopter #nasa #helicopterpilot #theplayfulyogipilot #femalepilot #womaninaviation #alpnrock @alpnrock #leighhelilife

Daily rituals are so important. A month ago, I decided to get on my yoga wheel a little bit every day...with no obligation to film or post it every time, just simply to do it. And it’s been so fun! Incorporating the #yogawheel has brought a really enjoyable and light hearted elemental to my practice...feeling free to just move, play, experiment. . Join me if you’d like to try this simple way of getting inspired in your yoga practice. I’m tagging it #30daysofyogawheel whenever I do actually post it...but remember there is no obligation...just simply play. Make a promise to me and to yourself that you will get on your yoga wheel a little bit every day for the next 30 days. For some of us, this is the start of round 2! Who’s with me? . . @tranquil_yogi @aloyoga #splits #wheelpose #backbends #backbendprogress #yogatutorials #howtoyoga #yogaforall #beagoddess #hipopener #shoulderstretch #homeyogapractice
