: a basis (such as a tenet, principle, or axiom) upon which something stands or is supported
This Sunday we’re building the foundations for your asana practice @solyogaflorida from 2-4pm. This open ended workshop is an opportunity to break down the postures that you may not get the chance to break down in class and to ask the questions you’ve been itching to ask! From the alignment of #Warrior1 to the mechanics and actions of #forearmstand , this workshop will be shaped by your curiosity - so bring your WONDER and your PLAY. $35 to reserve your spot through @solyogaflorida. See you on your mats 🤗
Nail it once, it’s luck. Nail it twice, also luck. Nail it 10 times, you’ve got a new party trick. Feeling pretty comfortable upside down in lotus which is something I never thought I’d say 😋 PLAY. EVERY. DAMN. DAY.
Speaking of play... plenty of chances to join me for some this weekend - Monday!

Day 2 without coffee and honestly kind of feeling like this...
Still not sure how @nakedalmond talked me into this #10daycoffeedetox ... on the upside my eye has stopped twitching so it’s only up from here 💃🏻
For the time being, you’ll catch me like this: enjoying my breath / maybe definitely napping... #givemeallthematcha
“But I do breathe, allowing the sorrows of the world to break my heart over and over, letting the joys make it whole again. Knowing how to do this, finding the courage to take another breath and not close my heart to myself or the world where there is pain, is what I seek to learn - how to love well.”
Excerpt from The Invitation by Oriah
Pouring over these words.
Drinking them in.
Becoming whole again.
Over and over.
Oh world... my heart aches sometimes, then the joy comes again.
And this is what our @inspiredlifett is about... more than yoga, learning how to love well.
We’re so excited about our upcoming trip to Belize and we want you to come with us! SO... We’re going to give one of you $400 to join us on our Belizean adventure to @naiaresortspa!
From Oct 24-29th, we’ll be retreating away to our favorite oasis in Placencia and indulging in daily yoga & mediation as well adventuring in the trees zip lining, on the water river tubing and below the sea snorkeling.
Here’s how to enter:
1. Make sure you’re following both @priti_yoga and @where.your.hope.lives 🤗
2. Tag a friend that you’d like to retreat with 👯♀️
3. Tell us why you need a getaway! ✈️🌴
4. Do some yoga, breathe and keep your fingers crossed! 🧘🏻♀️
You’ll have until 11:59pm tmrw (Tues oct 2nd) to enter and a winner will be announced Wednesday!
Regular pricing starts at $1650 for a 4-night option. (*excludes alcohol, flights and external excursions) DM me for more details!
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human...
- The Invitation
Thank you sweet friend @virgxx for this book that feels so indescribably familiar, as though I’m returning to my own heart, over and over again with each word...
I live for book trades. Grab your favorite book this week. Pass it on to someone to you love. Xx ✨
“If you're feeling frightened about what comes next, don't. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness. Don't waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present - each moment as it comes - because you'll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart... where your hope lives. You'll find your way again...”
I’ve carried this quote with me since I was in middle school. I used it in my high school graduation speech. It inspired my travel blog while backpacking through Southeast Asia. It’s been on my Facebook quotes for years. I still come back to it today. A constant practice of returning to heart and hope... over and over again. #whereyourhopelives
Thank you to @spirit_of_yoga for capturing this moment, where my hope so vibrantly lives.

You are the key.
Heal yourself, know yourself,
make yourself whole and free.
Release all limits so that your love can flow unconditionally for yourself and the world, this will open the heaven of your heart completely and it will guide you without fail.
The answer is you.
you get one skin to live in.
take care of your home.
Between living in Miami and all the hot yoga, I live in two constant states:
1) sweaty and 2) sweatier.
People have been asking me what I do to keep my skin healthy, happy and hydrated throughout my day, so here goes:
1) I drink a ton of water. It always starts from the inside.
2) I practice almost daily in infrared heat, which has done wonders for my skin.
3) I thank my Korean American parents for the bomb genetics.
4) I believe in a religious skincare routine... I’m talking cleansers, serums, masks, moisturizers, sun block... the works!
I’ve been using @freskincare the last few weeks and it’s the first skincare line made for sweaty humans like me. The 123 set has kept my face clean, rejuvenated and protected from the sun and I’ve noticed my skin feeling more vibrant with each day.
My favorite thing about @freskincare though? Each set you buy plants an Argan Tree of Life to fight deforestation and empowers the women who harvest the Argan in Morocco. You see, I believe in companies that make impact beyond their consumers. It’s more than skin. It’s about our planet and communities around the world. And that’s skincare I can feel good about, inside and out.

‘if you do not
feel at home with yourself

truly feel at home
it’s a practice of coming home.
feeling. breathing. as you are.
in your skin. in your bones.
come home to you.

Between the head and feet of any given person is a billion miles of unexplored wilderness. - Gabrielle Roth
the question is, will you explore and let your breath seduce you into your own wilderness?
and venture boldly.
oh, the beauty you will find.
Discover the Beauty Of Being in Belize with myself and @priti_yoga ✨ Join us for a luxury adventure to @naiaresortspa with @wellxplored this October 24-29th where we’ll tune in, create intimacy with our own breath and dive deep into the rich textures of ourselves. DM me for details! ✨
let it be done.
let in. all that needs to come in. all that needs to be felt.
let go. all that is out of your control. all that no longer serves.
let it be done. when it is done.
trust. the process.
the universe takes care.
Our girl got married!!!
And we didn’t wear yoga pants 💃🏻
