A few days ago someone asked, if I could speak to my younger self WHAT WOULD I SAY TO HER?
And actually I didn’t know how strongly that A. I would feel about it . B. I would already know exactly what I wanted to say - I didn’t think I had the answer within me.
And so I thought I would share what I wrote and also ASK YOU the same question - either to use as a journal prompt or tell me about it BELOW (maybe we can discuss and I’ll share some of our ideas 🤗) Because it turns out that the answer to who you want to be is there, it’s just maybe you didn’t realise it
| MY ANSWER |
It’s okay to fail. It’s okay not to be perfect.
Embrace it; embrace messy.
Do not tread so carefully.
Live life to the fullest. So wholly. Adventure lots.
Have as much fun as you can, and love everything.
P.s your body is NOT (and can never be) your obstacle to happiness

If you follow my stories you probably saw that I had a couple of rough days.. so bad that I ended up in the hospital 🏥.. the thing with me is that I don’t know when to stop and that has been my problem since I was a kid. After experiencing what I think was food poisoning (spent the whole night vomiting 🤢) I went to class the next day and decided to do the cleanse that we were working on class that day🤦🏽♀ Of course I gave myself a severe dehydration 😔.. I feel so much better now and I am so thankful that I decided to go to the hospital (believe me that was not an easy decision for me, especially because it involved missing classes😢), but to be honest I don’t know what would have happened if I decided to stay in school instead, I was feeling so weak, I couldn’t even go up the stairs. But its all good now🙌🏼, and this experience taught me so many things especially the importance of listening to our body! we need to stop fighting against it and just let it be, your body always has the answer🙏🏻💛
A good or a bad preparation for a pose can determine a lot when it comes to our yoga practice. -
Our experience, the feeling during the pose even the way that we think about this or not pose depend a lot on the way that we approach it during class!
I am a big fan or repetition. I believe this is the way you can achieve a deeper understanding on what it is you are practicing. By repeating n exploring the difference n the shifts your body n mind makes on every flow.
My classes are based on that. We repeat flows, adding on gradually till we are fully prepared for the peak pose. -
See you in class for more!
Some days you just have to roll out the colorful carpet for yourself to let everyone know you've arrived. Paparazzi optional📸
I'm your yoga mat - on the one hand, I'm practical, on the other hand, I'm completely different! #yogamatsforme
In the end, even though I’m not there yet, the things that make us happy and feel better are what really matter. Why do we take so much time out of our lives, listening to what others tell us to do, or what we should be doing?! If I listened to those people I would not be where I am today. People are going to doubt you. They are going to see your hardships and say things like “you are going to have to get a real job” before they ever see what your are manifesting in your head. They get so use to the life we are told every day growing up that we have to live, that when someone steps out of that “norm” it is scary, frowned upon, and looked at with no supportive behavior for the general direction you want to go. And maybe it’s because they don’t want to see you succeed. Maybe it’s because they love you and hate to see the struggle building something from the ground up causes. Maybe they don’t understand. What am I saying, they don’t!! Understand. But as long as you do...then you keep doing you. Some how and in some way everything will work out. You will find a way to grow. Keep believing in yourself and the universe will continue to be there when you send your energy out to the world❤️🙏🏻🧘🏼♀️Music: Where Am I Going

Walking 5 km under torrential rain in a tropical rainforest was a wake-up call for our kids, one didn't want to walk anymore and the other one was upset as he wasn't allowed to swim. 🌩️🌩️🐒🌳🌿🦎🐍🦂🌴🐌🌨️🌨️🌧️ Darkness, pounding rain, slippery slopes, roots, hidden creatures and, not to forget, blood thirsty leeches made it a life experience and a growing up phase for them!💪💯
What do you do with your kids to keep it real? I would love to know!
.....Tanze als würde dich niemand sehen 💃 .....meine Freundin Bina (@charmed_by_yoga ❤️ Werbung unbeauftragt) sagte einmal zu mir: „wenn du traurig bist, dann tanze. Am besten jeden jeden Morgen.“Ich habe ihren Rat befolgt, und mich jedesmal gut und frei gefühlt! Wenn ich tanze schließe ich meine Augen und bewege mich einfach, wie es mir in den Sinn kommt .....ich lass die Musik meinen Körper und meine Seele erobern 💖 Tanzen bedeutet Freiheit 🙏🏻 Und gestern in diesem Park ( im bin grad in meiner Heimat) den ich seit meiner Kindheit kenne und der sich irgendwie auch nicht verändert hat, hatte ich plötzlich das Bedürfnis mich zu drehen ❤️ und dann habe ich getanzt, so als würde mich niemand sehen ☺️ Namaste und einen schönen Tag ❤️ _______________________________________
I actually owned a photography business about 10 years ago and back then there was no instagram. Photography was just different.
Nowadays I feel like there’s so much more creativity, and an almost run-and-gun vibe especially for Instagram. A very “shoot whatever you can and figure it out in editing later” vine haha!
So today I spent the day teaching @shannons_shannonigans how to use a camera for @thebranded.group . Exciting things coming sooooon.

Buddhists believe that saying the mantra (prayer) "OM Mani Padme Hum" out loud or silently to oneself, invokes the spiritual power and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion, thus transforming your impure body, speech and mind into pure body, speech and mind of a Buddha.

"oh I definitely can't do that"
*proceeds to do it on the first try*
It's so easy to see something and feel that because its unfamiliar to your body/current vibration that therefore could never be a match or absorbed into your experience, but we are so much more capable than we realize, in every way, when we OWN our strengths rather than act from weakness. of course we all have areas where we can grow, but sooooo often we err on the side of safety and say we cant do something because we are addressing where we are weak only, rather than choosing to focus on why we WOULD be able to achieve something. trying a new shape and failing doesnt have the same flavor as launching a business and failing, BUT STILL, it's a mindset that is seeded in all the big things and then permeates the every day actions too. I'm so tired of telling myself no, based on how I feel in one fleeting moment. There is an inner, unchangeable, indestructible power and presence and strength that is ALWAYS there, no matter how my life looks on the outside. Just doing this pose was a huge reality check and metaphor for me to notice where I was telling myself "no i cant" in other areas of my life and vision. I'm so thankful yoga allows me to physically manifest and express the emotional and conceptual experiences I have within and understand Truth, with every shape and breath, over and over and over again.

Happy Friday Y'all! This #fuelbetterfeelbetterchallenge this week is about forgiveness. Forgiving self inflected pain, forgiveness others who may have knowing or unknowingly harmed you. Whatever your past..its not the past 5hat needs your attention. Live. Learn. Love. And let go. Let for of the #fomo , let go of the adult critic, let go of the hidden agenda, let go of the unwritten rule of engagement. Let go of all the BS weighing you down and failing to lift you back up into the future you seek, know, trust and believe. .
It's not out hearts that keep us down, it's our minds. Let go of the conditioned native you have held like they last child like thing you decided you may have outgrown but not let ready to but it in a box you can reminisce when the time comes..let go of sulking, cursing, ignoring the lesson.
It's time you. Stop cornering yourself and take back your essence. You are grit and grace. You are love and loyalty. You are tough and tender. Hold your truth. Own your path and lessons within the rhythms.

Yesterday I spent my time assisting Peter Vishaka's vedic puja for our One Yoga, @oneyogathailand TTC... keeping rhythm on drum, japa count on mala, and chanting the divine vibrations of Sanskrit. After I felt so happy I went. I'm exploring my limits quite fully lately and I almost stayed in, in cave mode. To bring and offer support for community and rouse my spirit helped me so much.
Afterwards we went to Anutta for dinner and ahh! so many beautiful friends were there and we all made more music and fun. After a nice meal I joined Satyaprem's first kirtan in his new hall Shakti Yoga, a community center for the purpose of activating our heart energy and letting go of attachments and the fears they cause. I never felt my voice so open as last night and my heart radiating to heal my hurts in this time. Bless All for this life journey and lessons of love. I love you. I'm sorry. Thank you. Please forgive me. I love you.

Setiap proses baik buruk di kehidupan membawa kita ke saat sekarang. Kadang kita menyesali keputusan dan proses yang kita jalani sebelumnya yang mungkin berbeda 180 derajat dr kondisi kita saat ini. Tanpa kita sadari, proses itu yang membuat kita seperti sekarang ini. Jadi bersyukurlah pada proses itu
Sama halnya apabila kita bertemu dengan orang baru di kehidupan kita. Sebenarnya alam semesta yang menarik kita untuk bertemu dengan jiwa tersebut - memberikan pelajaran dan kesadaran seketika tentang hidup
Perjalanan hidup memang misteri. Tapi jangan dibikin ribet, hidup itu simple. Berposes ke dalam saja dan menikmati keseimbangan antara dualitas hidup
Semoga semua makhluk berbahagia dan menemukan keseimbangan di dalam prosesnya masing-masing😊😇💚
These last few months have been an absolute crazy rollercoaster. It's been a sensitive and healing time for us as a family. The last 6 months made me anxious to my best but we all made it through.
Throughout these months I kept pushing my personal practice away. No, not because I got lazy but because there was a certain fear and and a drop in energy that was weighing me down. Anyone close to me could see it too.
Recently I got back to my practice but everytime I was told to go upside down into an inversion I just couldn't.
I instantly felt a shiver down my spine and a sudden uneasiness in my stomach.
That's when I realised how much my mental health affected my body. A shift in my personal life made me anxious, scared, overwhelmed and a rambler. Thankfully I'm back to my practice and focusing on my health both physically and mentally.
