An oldie but a goodie. My wrist has been bothering me because I haven't been stretching/taking care of myself before working at the spa. So no wrist balances for me currently.
Self care. It's all about listening to your body and not pushing yourself even when you know you can.

Wide legged forward fold pose // prasarita padottanasana c • hosted by @beachyogagirl@kinoyoga@omstarsapparel@liquidoactive
Such a lovely stretch to do in the morning after a quick yoga session to wake up! My whole body is sore from a full day of working both jobs yesterday. ...and my hamstrings are soooo tight this morning!

purplefeathers How loving, warm, welcoming, uplifting, inspiring, supportive, grounded is your house?
How you speak to yourself matters just as much, if not more, than how you speak to others. Your words or magical, magnetic, and hold the intentions that you wish to infuse your daily life with.
How do you speak to yourself? #mondaymantra repost from @amyayoga "breathe life, speak life, live life." 🌬

Real time flow, focusing on mindful twisting and flowing with the breath. I found this space at my spa, what do you think of the backdrop? I think it's a lovely way to pay attention to the shape and silhouette of the poses and flows.

purplefeathers That moment when you friend hands you some of the sweetest, juiciest, reddest strawberries you've had all year.
These are the moments when you stop whatever you are doing, and give all of your attention to the act of enjoying and savoring life.
The scents. The flavors. The colors. The sounds. The feelings. The thoughts.
When was the last time you savored life's sweetness?

This is the one mantra that I always repeat to myself over and over again whenever I feel limited, stuck in my comfort zone, or scared of a new idea, adventure, or thought.

Our mind likes to keep us safe by trying to protect us with the thought of "it's impossible!" Everything is possible. You may need to shift your thoughts, turn the idea on its head, take a step back, or walk completely away for a while. But if you stay open to possibility and always look for a new perspective you will realize that you always have been, and will continue to be infinitely possible.

purplefeathers When there is a cancellation in my schedule, you better believe I'm going to spend it outside in the sun! Reading my copy of @yogajournal with the lovey @marybethlarue who helped me rock my bliss in 2014! of course I have to indulge a bit, because it's Sunday and I deserve it!

purplefeathers I walked into my kitchen this morning to this burst of pale pink color.
Flowers are always a beautiful reminder of mindfulness and gratitude.
Look around you: what can you notice, and be grateful for, that you weren't aware of a moment ago?

purplefeathers I've been silent from most social media for the past week. I had a cold that I am still healing from, and I craved the space. I checked in on occasion, but mostly, I stayed away.
There were times that I wanted to post, but I couldn't string coherent thoughts together, and I felt that what I had to share was boring, or had no value. That thought is still lingering yet slowly fading, and the only way I know how to move past it is to do the one thing I am shying away from.
So here is a #oneminuteyoga video (technically 45 seconds, but who is counting? ) Simple, real time movement, just me and a real part of my practice. Slowly flowing with the process, with life, with myself.

purplefeathers I'm either dealing with allergies or a cold, but all I know is I'm tired, my head hurts, and I can't breathe. I want @instagram to give me 60-second videos, so for now I'll watch a sped up version of a party of the yin and flow sequence I did earlier this week.

purplefeathers Have you noticed your breath today?
If you've been going, going, going, it's easy to get distracted and focus on all of the external things demanding our attention.
Take this moment, RIGHT NOW, and inhale completely. Feel your breath filling up your lungs, nourishing you, sustaining your life. Exhale fully and be grateful.

purplefeathers Playing catchup after a whirlwind weekend. Days 3 & 4 & 5/100 of #100daysproject
Walks around the neighborhood, snapshots of an afternoon date with my love, a moment of #selfcare on my #yogamat and a house that's been on my mind.
I'm noticing that there are certain shots that I have in mind, aspects of my day that I know I want to capture. Looking trough my camera is going to help me cultivate patience while waiting for the right moment to grab a snippet of my day. .

purplefeathers Get up and move! Taking a quick stroll around the block in between clients to get the stagnant energy flowing, and needed a bit more movement.

It doesn't have to be much, just move your body today! #yogaflow #yogalife #stretch #movement

purplefeathers Day 2/100. There is beauty in the process. These imperfections (washed out, too dark, slightly blurred) are still beautiful to me. They show me that I'm trying, I'm stepping outside of my comfort zone. All I can do is kee going, and find the joy of looking at things in a different light.
I almost didn't include the flower in my daily pictures, but why hide it?
