You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself...the height of a man's success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment.

Had a great day teaching and now reading for school. How are you all doing? 🙃
It gets dark early. Yesterday I smiled through a whole boot camp class I went to. My matcha arrived in the mail. I’ve missed dancing. Going to take myself out tonight to dance. I’ve never done that before. I had two awesome humans over for a private yoga lesson today and we moved and talked for hours. I’m figuring out how to use quick books. Dogs are a lot of work. I still haven’t watered my plants. The cat pooped in one. I’ve made my bed every day this week. I’m going to the ocean on Monday. Sometimes I have RBF while I practice. One time the whole practice was a giant visualization of love making. That was a different magic level. I sleep in the middle of my bed with the window blinds open. Last night I could hear my plant’s leaves uncurling in the dark. Again. Tonight, my youngest told me he used the toilet rag to wash all the doorknobs in the house. I made him clean them again. With a different rag. I love vacuumed stairs. Tomorrow morning I’m going to make myself avocado toast. I like that my butt is sore from lifting. I really like coaching people in movement. That’s no surprise. I just think if you can find joy in the work, it will change your life. Especially because that’s how you’ll start to show up everywhere, in pleasure. In attention. My mantra today is “you are wanted.” Sometimes I doubt all the things, but mostly I know that everything I want is already here. Also CBD muscle rub is legit. Just figured that out in the past two weeks. Sometimes I don’t know what to say, but these are some things currently in my head.
How has your 2020 been?
Good? Or a little bumpy? I started out 2020 with goals and expectations but they all still kinda seem far-fetched for now. But I know if we put our mind to making things happen, they will happen.
Build around yourself a strong and powerful energetic field that protects you. You are the guardian of your inner vibration, no one else but you, owns the responsibility of your absolute wellness. Open the doors of your heart fully, but recognize when to keep it safe too 🙏🏽
Successful week to all ❤️

This weekend marked the start of Advanced 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with Robyn Love Yoga @robynikyolove and @namasteyogastudionl 🙏🧘💞
Impressions so far:
This training has a depth and a history that makes it weighty, solid. There is so much to learn and experience. One way to picture it is like this: a 200 hr YTT is the tip of the iceberg, the part that's out of the water. This 300 YTT starts to work it's way to the part of the iceberg that's under the water. Not the entirety of what's under the water, but a portion of it, larger than the part that's out of the water. Building and growing are words that come up in association with this process.
Studying and living yoga is a life long journey. This 300 YTT will challenge my assumptions and current worldview, enrich my internal practice and being, and bring a greater depth of understanding to community offerings. And it's a big commitment. But I'm up for the challenge with the support of our instructors and the entire YTT class 🤓🙌
S I N M I E D O S 😉
Estamos llegando a la mitad de la tercera semana y ya tod@s empiezan a estudiar y prepararse para las evaluaciones que se vienen.
Lo más importante de todo siempre es disfrutar del proceso. Disfrutar de cada momento y de lo que nos toca sin ningún miedo. Entender que daremos lo mejor de nosotr@s para poder compartir con nuestr@s compañer@s una clase que nunca olvidaremos.
La evaluación teórica no será más que volcar en palabras sobre un papel lo que hemos aprendido de nuestros maestros durante el mes para luego llevarla con nosotros y con el tiempo repasarla y nutrirla con más sabiduría.
Disfruten cada momento que la vida es aquí y ahora! 💜
🇫🇷 YOGA & CULTURE RETREAT French Countryside. 🇫🇷 June 6-13 2020. Join me for a stay at a gorgeous chateau nestled below the rolling hills of the Dordogne Valley in southwestern France - an area renowned for its distinctive history, world-class vineyards and postcard-worthy countryside. The retreat includes a SPECTACULAR private chef, multiple yoga & meditation classes & many cultural experiences, incl. multiple day trips to breathtaking ancient hilltop castles, picturesque towns, otherworldly gardens, local markets, wine tastings, shopping, and a few other surprises. It’s a meticulously planned vacation w/daily yoga, and it will be up to my high standard of celebration, fun, and exploration of the region we stay in. A trip with the set intention of an unforgettable life experience. And if you come with a non-yogi, they'll have a wonderful time as well.
Last year I ran the retreat in this same place and I loved it so much I’m doing it there again. A $500 deposit holds your spot. Thanks for reading 🙏🏽🙏🏽
can we just take a second to see how this yoga flow became a whole lot happier when that pup arrived 😍
that's the magic of pets! I don't know it might be something in their fur/feathers they must keep some happiness dust in there! 🤣

OPEN DAY 🤗
Vine cada dia amb un amic diferent!
🗓 23 I 24 GENER
Obrim les portes per a tu i per a qui tu vulguis.
El Ioga es unió i no hi ha res millor que compartir-ho amb els de sempre, amics, família, companys... Volem que el gaudeixis amb qui més et vingui de gust, per aquest motiu et convidem els dies 23 i 24 de Gener a vindre amb qui tu vulguis.
￼￼￼I need to take a moment to brag about my yoga peeps: ￼on January 1, I challenged them to complete 21 days of consecutive yoga classes. ￼They were allowed to choose any start date between January 1-10, and have to be completed by January 31 (some are still working to finish). ￼As a reward, anyone who completes all 21 days receives a free 10-class punch card and whoever has the most consecutive days gets that $50 bill on the board.
Y’all. The people that came out to participate in this are blowing my mind! 🤯 New students, regular students, students who had been regulars and drifted away, students who had been regulars at the Y but not at the ARS, and (and this is the kicker), even some of my friends from my bar tending/party days! Of course I believe anyone can do it but the thing is, I think I’m making believers out of my yogis, too. They are showing up for themselves in ways I don’t even think they imagined they could. They are prioritizing self-care and self-love. They are connecting with others in profound and meaningful ways, which is a big deal considering how many very VERY introverted folks come to yoga. They are revealing their brightest selves while getting rid of any BS that had been keeping them in the dark. And they are discovering that limits are all in the mind-once you break through one limit, you’ve gotta ask yourself “what else can I break that has been holding me back?” I have at least two Yogis who are “graduating” today (day 21 for them!) and many more to follow in the next week and some change and I just can’t wait to see them! One of them mentioned that her coworker told her she looked so good and we chatted about how it wasn’t anything to do with weight but everything to do with clearing the way so your joy and light can shine through. ￼Of course my favorite result of this challenge is that now, at the end of class, I hear “see you tomorrow!” This hits me at a very personal level when I think about my past and how many times I wasn’t sure what tomorrow would bring. I love knowing that no matter what happens today, there will be yoga class tomorrow and I get to see my friends there ❤️ #yogaeverydamnday#theandrearoyerstudio

En el Yoga físico no importa el método la meta es entrar en meditación. Para ello en Ashtanga Vinyasa usamos los drishtis, la respiración sonora y la repetición. Se busca en este y todos los demás métodos hacer todo lo que nos indican conscientes, absolutamente presentes en cada respiración en cada movimiento. Les propongo que en su próxima práctica lo prueben y sin importar si son alumnos míos o no me cuentan como les fue 🙌 #yogi#yogilife#ashtangayoga#yogaeverydamnday#yogaeveryday#yogisofinstagram
So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won’t see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
