#listen and you will hear everything a person is offering. Information, their dreams, their soul. Listen. Taking a human interest in what is being told can drastically shift how you communicate and you may find yourself moved and inspired in new and different ways. #connect

Have you ever seen this many women training on a mat? 🥋
The first ever women’s only training day was an incredible statement to the community @gracieuniversityhq is creating for women to gather, connect, and train. 🤗 All levels, all reasons for wanting to do jiu-jitsu, all fun. Oh yeah, and there was açaí. 🤤 If you can’t find what you’re looking for in life, build it. Thanks to @evetorresgracie, I get to learn this first hand.

This is #KipAndTheMagicalBelt
The children’s book I wrote to help children learn that they may encounter some uncomfortable things in life and that they can empower themselves to stand strong and set boundaries. It even offers real self-defense techniques! It also includes a parent page on bully prevention and handling. Click below to give this story to a child you want to learn to defend them-self.
Do you already have the book? Please go to the site and leave a review. I sincerely appreciate your feedback!

Tag someone who brought you on this journey... This journey has a special place in my life...
There are days full of passion, days where I’m triggered, days filled with doubt, days filled with sisterhood, days filled with inspiration, days filled with exhaustion, days when I’m humbled, and days when I’m proud. Each of these days have been necessary for where I am. Each of these days I am grateful for what I experience but even more grateful for WHO I experience it with...
To the instructors who continue to better me.
To the instructors who teach with me.
To student instructors who inspire me.
To students who have said they’re inspired by me.
To the students who have fought through their own battles.
To the students who have yet to join us... This was a journey I didn’t know I needed and even resisted, but now am open for it all.

Move. Dance. I don’t care how, or what you look like, or if you’ve even found the beat. Move your body. Dance. Express yourself. Let the music move you. This has been my mental mantra that I want to share with you all... because I’ve felt the drought of not having dance in my life. And I feel the difference in bringing it back again. And no, you don’t have to be good at it. Just dance. .

I want to know who you are, behind the trauma, beyond the social constructs and past the expectations and habits.
Who are you?

Horses have always been my spirit animal. What’s your spirit animal? 🐴. I have a reverence for horses and their majestic nature. 💗

The greatest gifts you can give someone... your time, knowledge and good food. @brittybrittybrittybritty brought all of this to me on the wonderful last day of the year. 💞
Learning how to make homemade butternut squash ravioli from the truest Italian I know. So much love 💕

I found strength and freedom in boundaries... it begins with ‘No.’

Identity. What is it to you? What identity are you attaching to and cultivating your life from? What is holding you back? 🖤
I remember thinking that because I became a mom that I couldn’t be sexy. That I was constrained by the traditional ideals of motherhood to suppress my natural want to express myself, to embrace who I was and to dismiss my previous identity as a dancer who spoke fluently with my physicality.
I am realizing more that both identities are just labels that are taken on and both can exist at any moment. Existence without attachment. Connecting with each at the moment they arrive and authentically living from its existence, moment to moment.
Open to further discussion with anyone interested below... 🖤
