hellohollye Give yourself permission to take time for doing things that bring you joy. Too often I find myself caught up in the "should's" and "to-do's", leaving me overwhelmed, anxious and feeling like what I do and who I am are not enough. When I take time to pause, go a bit easier on myself and pursue pure joy, I feel centered, peaceful, and ultimately more present with myself and the creatures around me. What do you give yourself permission for?

  •   discombobulatedgirl I needed this today! I gave myself permission to enjoy my days off, but felt guilty the whole time, even though they were days off! I need to not feel guilty. I give myself permission to go outside and enjoy the day. 2w

hellohollye "Root yourself in this present moment. What do you see, smell, hear? Recognize your power. This will be your creation. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may never exist. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice. - via After Earth #present #beherenow #hike #losangeles #loveloudly #youarebeautiful #choice 4w

hellohollye "To take a photograph is to participate in another person's mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time's relentless melt." - Susan Sontag #selfportrait #loveloudly #youarebeautiful 1mon

hellohollye "What do you want your days to look like? You can BE whoever you want to be. Literally. Wake up. Hike. Drink a smoothie. Create. Eat good food. Walk. Read books. Slow down. Foster an attention span. Be present. Be mindful. Choose good things. Cook! Look inward. Let go. Life is short. Let yourself feel. Don't hold back. Someday you will be old, if you are lucky. Hold those you love close." - Hollye, 2011

hellohollye "I am feeling ponderous: both grounded and adrift. I feel like there is a little me inside of me who wants to burst out and be awesome and feel awesome and go do and live out loud and put herself, her authentic self, into the world. I feel alive, but I want to feel more alive. I feel connected, but I want to feel more connected. I want to be expressive and authentic. I want to give and love and feel out loud. I want to dream and make passionate love. I want to nurture my loves and give light and comfort. I want to slap someone in the face and wrestle. I want to cry in front of my friends. I want to wear my soul on my sleeve." - Hollye, 2012 2mon

hellohollye "Now I dream of the soft touch of women, the song of birds, the smell of soil crumbling between my fingers, and the brilliant green of plants that I diligently nurture. I am looking for land to buy and I will sow it with deer and wild pigs and cottonwoods and sycamores and build a pond and the duck will come and fish will rise in the early evening light and take the insects into their jaws. There will be paths through this forest and you and I will lose ourselves in the soft curves and folds of the ground. We will come to the fawaters edge and lie on the grass and there will be a small unobtrusive sign that says, THIS IS THE REAL WORLD, MUCHACHOS, AND WE ARE ALL IN IT.
- Charles Bowden: Blood Orchid

  •   karlamo HOLLYE!!! I just saw U won't be teaching at the studio. I haven't been in the last couple of weeks & didn't hear. NOOOO!!! Why???? where else do u teach? I didn't even say goodbye. My sis and I are very upset. 2mon
  •   hellohollye @karlamo xoxoxo thank you for the message and love. I'll be subbing the restorative class on 1/2 at 7pm and teaching my last official InYoga class on 1/3 at 10:30am. BUT, I'll be subbing now and then in the future. I'm so sad to give up the regular classes, but I've had some heavy life stuff come up. I always try and remind yogis to take care of themselves in my class, and in this case I need to take some time to take care of myself and work through these big life things. And then hopefully I can return stronger, more grounded and with more capacity for presence as a teacher. I *will* see you in class, as I'll still be around the studio practicing and subbing. Please give your sister my love. And of course big love to you. Xoxoxo 2mon
  •   karlamo Yes, we WILL see u again. Will miss u tho. Best to you in whatever you have going on. Thank you for your wonderful classes. Please keep us posted whenever you will be in. big hug to U. 2mon
