Approximately a couple months ago in yoga class at @oranjfortmcmurray I was attempting forearm stand on the wall. I managed to get my one leg up to touch the wall, but that was as far as I could go. I told myself this was something I was going to get on retreat. I could just feel it.
One week ago, I hopped on a plane and left freezing Canada for the warm Mexico beaches on the beautiful @xinalani resort. I met the most incredible group of strangers quickly turned friends. The days were full of fitness and yoga routines, beach lounging, gourmet meals, jungle hikes, massages, sweat lodges, laughs, deep connections, and evening activities. If you had told me a year ago that I would be on a yoga/fitness reatreat, I would have told you I wasn’t strong enough. The strength still comes and goes, but thanks to @mike_mckoy & @cultivatebalance I found for a moment that “sweet spot” and practiced my very first supported forearm stand. I cannot even begin to explain the happiness that accompanied not only that moment but also every single moment of the week. Just trust. Just do it. And the strength within and surprise will be worth it! Namaste 🙏

Today's energy is very interesting. I feel like I am realigning after two weeks of mental mayhem. Being #upsidedown definitely helps put everything back into focus. It is like the whole world quiets when I'm balancing on my pretty little arms. 💪🏽And I am enjoying the recovered silence in my mind. #happynewmoon May it bring you the clarity you have been waiting for. And if no one has told you today... You are beautiful and I love you. 💞

Playing catch up for #flythroughfall with one of my favorite asanas #pincha or #forearmstand

Big goal is for my toes to touch my head and it will happen. I am so solid and strong in this variation, that I can hold it forever.
Funny story...Jayla and I were at the park while I was practicing today, she was swinging, which is one of her favorite things to do❤ Well, the little stinker got herself stuck in the baby swing due to her thunder thighs😂😂😂 It took me a good 15 minutes to get her out. Memories for life❤👌 To the hosts @erikafisheryoga @laraliam @rebeccaleigh

Finding the strength and the grit to hold my forearm stands. Thank you @yogides for the great workshop and for teaching me how to be powerful in a whole new way over the last two years! @hiddendragonyoga

I've only been practicing yoga for a little over a year, so I'm far from advanced. However, yoga is my happy place and reminds me during challenging times to be consistent and mindful. #wallfun #handstands #forearmstand #yoga4life #consistency

Yoga bloopers are THE BEST bloopers. I saw this pose and thought “so easy, I can do that”. Alas, I was wrong. I eventually got it, but not without epically falling multiple times (swipe left). #yoga #yogabychey #yogaeverydamnday #balance #yogajourney #yogi #yogini #yogisofinstagram #instayoga #yogamom #fit #fitmom #strength #balance #blooper #yogafail #forearmstand #modesty #realitycheck #variations #rainyday
