4 years ago...at 10:42 AM, the stars aligned to welcome Aro Xion into the world. ๐ŸŒฌ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ’ซ
.
He has grown in size and experience, and he has blessed our family with a deeper understanding of Love + patience.
.
He will forever hold a special place in the hearts of many.
.
I pray for his health and safety and wish him a long life of achieving dreams and feeling bliss. May he always keep his spark of life bright. May he continue to expand his respect of all beings and bring a conscious vibration to this world, without losing touch of his wild soul.
.
I see the fire in him, and I trust that he will grow into his wild spirit with care.
.
Big Gratitude for the Wenatchee Valley Midwives, especially Danelle Aurilio + Suzie Anderson + Amana Faulkner for being the powerful Queens that they are, protecting the sacredness of birth and tending safe space for Mamas to bring forth their children. I could not have asked for a better aligned support web during Aroโ€™s birth, it was a glimpse into a whole new way of birthing...thank you!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•
.
Happy 4th Birthday, Sonshine. ๐ŸŒป
We love you so much! โค๏ธ

Yesterday was filled to the brim with magic, emotion + gratitude.

From my waking moment, to the moment I laid down to rest...I was overjoyed with the web of Life and Love that is strengthening around us.
.
I will forever cherish these moments, as the true nectar of the Heart.
.
Blessings to Danielle + Trevor as they embark on married life.

My prenatal flow ๐Ÿ’•
.
I have been practicing yoga for 13 years. It has been a daily practice for the past 6 years. It is hard to sometimes remember how much my practice has transformed and evolved within me.
.
I can say this, where ever my attention goes...my practice follows. When my life is calling forth more strength, my practice naturally becomes more powerful. When my needs are geared more toward stillness and calm, my practice tends to that. When I feel the need for freedom and creativity, my practice nourishes those needs.
.
Being pregnant, my practice reveals to me so much about my body and itโ€™s needs. It is very clear when I am moving to quickly or into a posture that doesnโ€™t serve me or babe. After these years (and pregnancies) I am so grateful for the clear communication I have developed with my physical sensations.
.
Body + energy + mental awareness may be my most treasured benefit of the practice. As a teacher of this practice, that can be the hardest, yet most rewarding thing to share/teach. Our ability to adventure + discover our own movements and needs. There can be so much blocking that connection, but with time and consistent practice, those passageways become more open and we are able to feel and connect to OURSELVES in a most intimate way...and Iโ€™ve found that as we are able to love and feel ourselves more deeply, we are able to touch the part of ourselves that is ALL. The infinite. The soul. The connector. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ
.
And, feeling those passageways that I have opened and cultivated through this practice with a growing human inside of me (!!!) is just insane and amazing.
.
And also, pregnancy is a magnificent but also super CHALLENGING time...so, to have my practice is to be holding my most sacred medicine. Giving such THANKS to the path, and all who share it.
.
Bless up!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Do you ever stop in front of a doorway, and feel the energy within the space you are about to enter? Feel the energy within the space you are about to depart?
.
.
.
I have been getting to know this yurt... I can feel itโ€™s safety and circular solidarity. I love itโ€™s green carpet and strong tree guardians. We have kept it very bare, so that it feels spacious and open... I am able to move and dance and be free in there.
.
But today, something interesting happened.
.
I went to enter the yurt and I felt a calling to stop at the doorway and breathe.
.
I began a simple, intuitive yoga movement...and connected with the space around the structure.
.
After movement, I stood still and thought about the power of standing just outside a doorway.
.
Itโ€™s like being on the brink of a change, on the edge of a dimension...transitioning from one place/feel to another.
.
And... it felt really good to pause.
.
To stop, and appreciate, and notice where I was standing and where I was heading...where I have come from.
.
It reminded me of a friend who puts altars near her doorways and places flowers, food, crystals, affirmations there...it reminded me to be more conscious of the doorways I stand at and the reverence I have for walking into new space.
.
It reminded me how quickly we transition, and how important it is to not get swept away in the hustle of it all...to listen, feel, notice, appreciate.
.
It reminded me of this pregnancy, and how badly I want to meet this babe...but how important it is to savor the walkway, the porch, the doorway...because again and again, we will all be walking through to another space.

Baby Lohuis lookinโ€™ like a little king... feeling full of pride and connection after our ultrasound today.
.
He is measuring just a few days ahead of his January 20 due date...maybe that means he will fall on the Capricorn side of the cusp (like his Mama.)

 We shall see ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒฟ

Weโ€™ve been yoga-ing together around the city since 2011 ๐Ÿ’— tonight was a Hanuman vibe summer send off with Donte, sound waves by Rafe, at the Monkey Loft. It was a groovy setting for a smooth Vinyasa.
.
The mood was playful, reverent and natural. The music was like taking a trip around the world, through different habitats and temples. It was powerful.
.
 @gretchenannryerson ๐ŸŒฟ thank you for so many sacred experiences. We are blessed to have each other! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ”ฎ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Love you G.

This year, on Motherโ€™s Day, I held a free Karma Yoga class. As the minutes ticked closer to the class, I realized that maybe this would be a fluke time where no one shows up and I get to free flow in the studio. As the hour drew closer, I secretly yearned for that...but knew that whatever happened and whoever showed up would be the way it was supposed to be...
.
As the door opened, I had a feeling I knew who it was...since we had talked about the class prior.
.
My sister, @braedean walked in. She was in her first trimester of pregnancy and I was SO elated to spend this Motherโ€™s Day with her (+ I was 5/6 weeks pregnant and DIDNโ€™T know!!)
.
After talking to her a bit, we decided to have a more freestyle class. We set up our mats in a circle of candles and quartz, turned on the playlist and moved through a dance of yoga.
.
Free
.
Inspired
.
Creative
.
As we settled into the end of class, I led a meditation honoring the Mother in all of her forms.
.
This was absolutely one of my favorite โ€œclassesโ€ of all time.
.
Unencumbered soulful freedom.
.
May we all feel such joy.
.
Love you B. Thank you for showing up in my life in the most beautiful + meaningful ways.

Filling your womb with life is magical...joining your friends in the process is the gift of a lifetime.
.
As JBeck reaches her due date in the next week or so, I give Thanks.
.
Thankful for moments when we are able to hear, see and feel the divine. Thankful for the opportunity to be heard, seen and felt by our spirit fam.
.
The journey is not easy, nor is it meant to be...but it is sprinkled with some of the most potent magic + Love that makes all of the challenges seem balanced, necessary.
.
My greatest insight, one that these two sisters remind me of when the weight of the world is heavy,
โ€œCount your blessings + know that I got you.โ€
.
Love is the Most High.
