Concrete jungle where dreams are made of... There’s nothing you can’t do.. 🏙

Winter in the UAE really is the best time of the year but as the cooler weather comes so does cold and flu season 🤧
Yoga helps to keep my immune system high so I don’t get sick often but when I do it’s so hard to practice and teach because of my blocked sinuses. Focused Pranayama with Pitta-kaarak Mudra helps but also before that I like to use @otrivinarabia to help clear the sinus 🙌🏻 @otrivinarabia #OtrivinCompletesMe , #BreatheBetter , #OtrivinComplete CHSAUCHOTRI004718
After surf essentials - getting all that super salty water off the skin! 💦 .
The water in the mangroves is almost 2 times more salty than most sea water and it really dries out your skin if you leave it on.. especially in the sun! So I’ve been trying out @mediluxegulf Collagen facial wipes to rehydrate and cleanse my skin.
They have collagen, sage extract, D-panthenol and glcyrrhizinic acid inside which really help reduce inflammation, moisturise and regenerate the skin 🙌🏻
Just living my best mermaid life in my favourite place in the UAE - the natural secluded Eastern Mangroves 🧜🏼♀️🌿🏝
Feeling totally refreshed after spending 2 full days in nature, wearing only my bikini the whole day, taking in all the sunshine, fresh air, clear waters and good vibes with so many awesome people!
Even though organising the @wakeevo camps are a lot of work.. they are so rewarding and I love sharing this little piece of paradise with others ☺️
If at first you don’t succeed... squat and turn and try and try again 🙃🙃🙃😂 .
☝🏻The life story of my 360 wakesurf spins.. another practice of teaching me patience, practice and persistence 🙌🏻 🌊 .

Rest and self-care are so important. When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from the overflow. You cannot serve from an empty vessel. ✨
Sometimes you just have to say no, stay home, put on that face mask, read that book you’ve been meaning to for a while and cuddle your cats all day to reset and refresh yourself. 🙏🏼

Feel the love, light and connection 💛
Celebrating 7 years of marriage with the love of my life, my soulmate, my life adventure partner and other half @willyspirituales today 😘
11/11/11 was a beautiful special day in our favourite place - Thailand. (Throwback pics in my stories! 👰🏼🤵🏽)
Find your stillness behind the chatter... ✨
We have between 60,000 - 80,000 thoughts a day. That’s a thought every 1.2 seconds... but we are not our thoughts - we have thoughts. Just like our mobile phones are not our text messages, it receives texts but they are not the phone.
You have thoughts but you are not your thoughts. 🙏🏼
// Finding stillness while balancing on this ball was super challenging! 😂 thanks to @jonwong90 for being so patient to get the shot for me 🤗

What an amazing day teaching Yoga classes at @dubaimarinamall for one of my first favourite Aussie brands @roxy 💕
My heart is full from being able to connect and share the practice with friends and making new ones too! 💙
Thanks to @danaemercer for taking this sneaky snap mid pigeon pose explanation ☺️👯♀️
keep adventuring 💚💚
Discovering hidden wildlife mangrove sanctuaries next to our new home in the islands of Abu Dhabi 😍 .
@willyspirituales and I decided to take the morning off wakeboarding & wakesurfing and went for a calmer SUP through the islands.. it’s so peaceful inside the mangrove national park you forget the busy city stress just next to it.. we definitely needed it to reset for the rest of the day! 🍃
PS. How amazing have the clouds been the last few days UAE?! 😍☁️☁️

Being able to wakesurf and then beach surf in the same day and same place has made all my surfy dreams come true ☺️🙌🏻 .

Always working on my balance - that balance between strength and flexibility, hardness and softness, work and rest. ⚖️ _
Still balancing my time between Dubai and Abu Dhabi too ☺️ As much as I love being in my quiet mangrove islands I still have work to do in Dubai.. and play on the beach in between work sometimes too 😋
Sunny salty daze 💦
I’m back! Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately but I’ve been nonstop, no time for pics and spending most of my free time in the sea 💁🏼♀️ (if you follow my stories you’d know why ☺️) _
As I’m always getting my hair wet I haven’t been looking after it much and it was so dry and wayyy overdue for a colour refresh. I’m so happy @glamouruae has fixed it for me! Bee did an amazing job giving me a more natural looking beachy blonde that blends with my natural hair colour! 🙌🏻 _
I promise I will post more now my hair is all pretty again ☺️
Can you feel it?...
The connection.. the love for Mother Nature, the earth, our home, us.
It’s a part of us and we can not survive without it.
We’ve been so caught up in creating, building, consuming that we’ve lost the connection and now our greed is killing our home.
Little by little a few of us are waking up and realising we need to change and that’s amazing.. But we need more connection, more love and more change to save ourselves and our Earth.
How am I making the change? Trying to consume less, make more conscious purchasing choices, recycling (when possible in this country 🤷🏼♀️) and spending more time in nature.
This is my favourite spot to take in nature in the UAE.. The Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi. It’s quiet, it’s natural... It’s my sanctuary to feel peace and real life in the UAE. 💚
