Are you living at cause or in effect of your personal universe? Hint: the latter won’t get you very far. ⠀ ⠀ ✖️If you’re not living the life you want and choosing to be in effect, you likely have some sort of excuse for why your life looks the way that it does.⠀ ⠀ There’s not enough money or time, the economy’s bad, your kids are too demanding, your parents never fed you healthy food, you don’t have enough degrees...⠀ ⠀ This means that you are putting your life and experience into the hands of eternal factors. ⠀ ⠀ You’re resigning to whatever comes your way and unwilling to do the work and align your energy to create a different result. ⠀ ⠀ ✨Living at cause means that when something goes awry or you’re not where you want to be, you ask yourself, “How am I at cause for this?”⠀ ⠀ Not to blame, shame, or judge but to empower you to take responsibility for your portion of the outcome and see that you can always 𝒸𝒽𝑜𝑜𝓈𝑒 something else. ⠀ ⠀ If you’re sick and tired of living in the same loop...⠀ ⠀ AND⠀ ⠀ Ready to design a plan for the life you really want with soulful strategies, accountability, and robust support so you can make it your reality, I have an experience for you: ⠀ ⠀ ✨Zion National Park, a 5-Day Yoga, Adventure, & Clarity retreat on Sept 27-Oct 1, 2019 🏜⠀ ⠀ Half of my signature life coaching program is included in addition to the live retreat to help you quantum leap towards the life you’ve always dreamed of experiencing.⠀ ⠀ Shoot me a DM if you’re ready to stop making excuses and start taking action. A year from now you’ll damn sure be glad you didn’t wait. P.S. 2020 retreats are your way soon. What’s your dream yoga & adventure retreat destination?

This time last year, I was falling out of love with yoga.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Running around town, teaching 8-12+ studio classes/privates per week, and feeling burnt out and exhausted.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ So, I listened to the cosmic nudges and I quit. I quit everything.⠀ ⠀ Two weeks later, I received a phone call from my mom that my stepfather was in the hospital.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ There was no real news. He was there to pass a kidney stone but I couldn’t shake the feeling that I needed to drive home.. like NOW.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ On the car ride to Atlanta, she called back: cancer. Stage 4. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ I spent the rest of the drive in tears. During that rollercoaster of a month, my practice (and beautiful souls like my sweet friend @kebeaver who braves loss and pain like a damn goddess warrior) were the only thing that made me feel any sort of wholeness.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Showing up, breathing, creating space, moving tension, being present and surrendering to all my feels... ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ On my mat, I chose love over fear.⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ A month to the day of my mom’s phone call, he passed. The diagnosis was sudden. His death even more abrupt. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I don’t know much but I do know this: everything can change in an instant. Don’t wait. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Are you happy? Are you making an impact? Are you doing the work your soul came here to do? Are you growing?⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ If not, please reflect on why you’re doing what you’re doing in the first place. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ This world asks us to wear busy like a badge of honor. I challenge you to do the opposite.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Be brave. Create space. Show up for your practice, whatever that may be. Do things that make you feel alive and creative. Love...HARD.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I know life is messy and things can feel overwhelming—even daunting at times. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ It's so easy to make excuses for why we can't show up for ourselves but please don’t forget how precious this one life is. ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ You will never be YOU on July 12th, 2019 ever again. Act accordingly. Don't miss the moment. Drop your favorite emoji if you needed this reminder and please don’t hesitate to reach out if there’s anyway I can support you. ✨
✨ 3 Steps to Bring More of What You Love into the Day Job You Hate.✨⠀ ⠀ 1️⃣Change your thoughts. ⠀ ⠀ The actions we take are and the energy we show up with are preceded by the thoughts we continue to think. ⠀ ⠀ If every day, you walk into work saying to yourself, God I hate this job. It's so stressful and unfulfilling. I can't wait until I work for someone who actually pays me what I'm worth. Jeez, is it only Monday? Man, I need a drink... ⠀ ⠀ You're less likely to preform in a way that warrants a pay raise or allow all of your brilliant talents and gifts to shine through. ⠀ ⠀ Or maybe you're walking into a networking event wanting to connect and feel seen but you're showing up with thoughts of unworthiness and insecurity...⠀ ⠀ When you find yourself in conversation, you're likely to be thinking about YOU rather than asking questions, creating trust and interest, and being genuine, open, and present.⠀ ⠀ 2️⃣Find gratitude NOW. ⠀ ⠀ We think that by getting the new job, relationship, moving to the new city, going on a new adventure, buying the house, being the most fashionable, losing weight, filling our schedules to the brim to look important and busy, we will finally arrive...⠀ ⠀ But the truth is, if we don't feel good where we are and all we are doing is focusing on what's lacking / what we don't want to experience, we can't get to the good stuff. ⠀ ⠀ We're not available for it. ⠀ ⠀ Gratitude helps us be satisfied with what is while reaching for more. ⠀ ⠀ 3️⃣Eat lunch at your desk so you can use your lunch hour to do something that lights you up. ⠀ ⠀ Take a walk outside, go visit with a friend, read a book that you can't get enough of, go to a spin class or your favorite climbing gym...⠀ ⠀ Be intentional about inserting something yummy into the fabric of your day. ⠀ ⠀ When you feel good, you radiate that and people, situations, and opportunities become available that are in alignment with your JOY rather than resistance or despair. ⠀ ⠀ Which are you implementing this week?! Tell me below! 👇⠀ ⠀ And if you're wanting to learn how to create a life by design rather than living on autopilot, shoot me a DM and let’s chat. 💛⠀
A few months ago I asked him, “What made you fall in love with me?”⠀ ⠀ He answered, “You always push me to keep growing—to discover the best man I can be. I feel totally at home and the most alive with you.” ⠀ ⠀ Melt. ⠀ ⠀ When we met, I was hell on wheels—full of fire and hadn’t quite learned how to use it without burning down, well, everything.⠀ ⠀ But he saw (and reminded me) of who I really was under all of my armor and the parts that still needed some TLC. ⠀ ⠀ While my equilibrium called for some water to fan my flames and a beginner’s guide to patience and gentleness, he’s prone to complacency and needed a little stoke. ⠀ ⠀ Where I am weak, he is strong and vice versa. ⠀ ⠀ My whole life I‘ve been proud of the fact that I’m strong and independent and don’t need no man. ⠀ ⠀ But lawd am I grateful I surrendered to your love. I’m SO much more with you. ⠀ ⠀ Happy 3 year anniversary week (that’s a thing, right?! hehe). Thanks for marrying me. 💛
