fitqueenirene This is my first Christmas away from home and there is no where in the world I would rather be than here in France with these two. @luxyoga you have truly created something special and I am so grateful to be a part of it. If you ever have the opportunity to go on a @luxyoga retreat, let me know and I'll meet you there.
Merry Christmas Eve and happy holidays wherever you are, whatever you believe in.
Love

fitqueenirene The more we can communicate without barriers the easier it becomes to trust ourselves and those around us.

fitqueenirene My wrist has been a little sensitive so I am embracing forearm transitions. There is so much to learn from "injury" and if we get tied up in anger or resentment we will miss the point.
I'm in love with my new blue @liforme yoga mat! This mat is worth every penny... I mean pence new colors come out in January but don't forget to use my discount code fitqueenirene

fitqueenirene Woke up in London this morning, falling asleep in France tonight.
Someone just liked one of my older posts where I shared 10 non yoga facts about myself. The last fact stated my dream was to travel the world sharing my passion for health and fitness, but I was unsure what that meant at the time. I feel so incredibly lucky and blessed that two years later I am living my dream traveling the world as a yoga teacher and student. I still can't believe it. #thankyou.

fitqueenirene It's easy to watch from afar thinking "she must have been a gymnast" or "she is naturally flexible," but the truth is hardwork makes talent.
I began practicing yoga March of 2012. I could not do a handstand. I was not comfortable doing a split or lotus pose. I thought I was strong, but mentally I was weak. The harder we work and the more we commit to ourselves the easier it is to believe anything is possible. last chance to get my @codyapp beginner yoga bootcamp before the price goes back up! It's 50% off! Click the link in my bio for more info.

fitqueenirene I am completely and utterly overwhelmed with guilt and stress for the first time in quite a while. I know these ebbs and flows of emotions are normal but it feels so unfamiliar. Over the past week things have seemed to fall apart. At first it was just superficial- I came home from Costa Rica and my car broke down. But for someone who relies on a car for work almost daily this was pretty inconvenient.
As I was about to take my car to the shop my sister emerged from her bedroom in tears barely able to speak. "Irene, I need you to take me to the hospital. I think my lung has collapsed." So we hopped in her car and I rushed her to the hospital, where we found out she had blood clots in both of her lungs.
While my sister was in excruciating pain I had to fly across the country where more plans fell through. I felt so selfish for leaving her and for making my mom take care of her alone.
While I was in Seattle I had a smile on my face almost the entire time. I had so much fun and met such amazing people. I almost forgot about my family and what they are going through without me.
And now as I sit on the plane flying home, making plans for my trip to France in a few days I just feel so damn selfish and guilty.
I'm sure after I hug my sister and spend the next few days with her and my family I will feel better but I can't help but let a few tears roll.
@hellalonglegs I love you so much. And even though I might not have shown it I was scared for you. I still am. I know I'm not home much but I am always, always with you.
I'm not really seeking advice as much as a little love and support. I won't dwell on these feelings but for some reason I felt compelled to share them.
