I took this for a challenge that I decided not to finish. It’s very unlike me to not look at all the poses listed ahead of time, but because I liked the theme so much, I just decided to give it a go. That is until I saw that the last three poses are all incredibly advanced arm balances. I don’t want to be offensive, but I think that when hosts decide to only include incredibly difficult poses, they’re (perhaps inadvertently) sending a message about who they’d like to join. By all means, include advanced poses; but, perhaps giving options (this OR that), would make the challenge more welcoming. It’s far too common in the Western yoga world—and this microcosm that is IG yoga—for a good number of people to feel excluded. And why? Because they’re just beginning? Because their anatomy doesn’t allow for certain poses? Because of any number of reasons. It’s shitty. And I’m not saying that everyone excludes intentionally. I prefer to give the benefit of the doubt and assume most people are just oblivious or just ignorant of what would create these divides. But the fact is that yoga was not created for thin, white, fit, cis, female peoples. So why the fuck it’s become this way is utterly ridiculous. And yeah, I might harp on this a lot—the lack of inclusivity of ALL bodies—but it’s something I deeply believe in and am literally working toward. Maybe I’m just triggered easily by certain people or issues or posts. Maybe that’s my issue. I have a feeling I’m not alone in this, though, and so if I can speak up and give a voice to those who aren’t able or ready to speak on their own, then I’m happy to do so. And I’ll just need to be extra careful about the challenges I choose to join and the people I choose to follow. Смотреть полностью

Breathing deeply and trying to not want to die.

When your “bad side” becomes your “good side”. Every day is different, right? And though compass pose is a nemesis pose for me, I had been able to get into with less contempt until recently. If recently means since summer. Because I think that’s the last time I did it. Maybe fall? I don’t know, I digress. What I mean to say is, fuck this pose. That is all. 💕 #foundationorflair #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

Twist poses? Yes, please! Release, detoxify, stretch, and open. This supine spinal twist is pure yumminess. 💕💕 #wringouttheold #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

Edited: Just realized I posted this a day early. 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️Oof! Dolphin is so hard for me! (That’s what she said) because my arms and shoulders are nearly as strong as they could be. My forearms always feel awkward and like they can’t stay straight and on the mat. Tips and pointers are welcome, friends! 🙏 #strongstretchyshoulders #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

Forearm stands are still reasonably impossible for me. Granted, I don’t practice them much, but that’s because I’ve given up caring whether or not I can do it. I know pincha is one of those coveted poses, but it’s just not a priority for me. So, I’ll practice when I want to/need to/ can, and that’ll just be good enough. ▫️ #foundationorflair #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

And with super crotch...I mean super soldier, we’re all caught up. 🙌 One day my knee will make its way to straightness. One day. Just not today. 👍 (To see how much I love this pose, pay extra attention to the face I’m making. 😄) #foundationorflair #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

My husband said, “How is that even possible?” I guess that means I’m getting stronger in this one. 😄 Just being a little extra today and jumping in on a fun, little sponsorless challenge. 💕 #foundationorflair #yogamakesmyfuckingday #yogainmyundies #underwearyoga #yogalove #igyogachallenge #getitgirl #selflove #bodypositivity #teamcellulite #yogaforeverybody #progressnotperfection #MyRealYogaBody #thickyogi #bodypositivity #chubbygirlyoga #chubbybutflexible #bigbodiesdoyogatoo #bopoyoga Смотреть полностью

I was perusing old photos on FB, and periodically I’d stop and say how much I liked my hair in so many photos. Yes, this is coming from someone who has fought their hair for so long. My daughter then asked if I am starting to regret shaving my hair off. I’m not, actually. Do I sometimes miss having more hair? Sure, I do. But do I also love my hair now? You bet. And that’s when I realized that looking back and missing and loving my hair at all these different times is such a wonderful “problem” to have. Because now that I think of it, instead of thinking I hated how I looked, I realize I’ve loved myself all along. And my hair really doesn’t have shit to do with it, ultimately. Because if I loved myself with long hair, and I love myself with almost no hair, and I loved myself everywhere in between, I guess the fact is that I just love myself. Even when I doubt myself. Even when I compare and question, and feel I don’t measure up. I still come away from those times reaffirming how happy I am to be me. Flaws, strengths, and all. I feel pretty awesome having realized this. 😊 Happy Saturday, my friends. 💕💕 Смотреть полностью

#mylifepicaday is #inside so here’s my little Bubba inside his hideout in the living room. He’s really into building forts. 😊 And in case you can’t tell, he’s sporting his custom mala by the amazing @besohum that she and I worked together to help him with his anxiety. 😊💕 Смотреть полностью

Not your usual yoga photo. Certainly not your typical IG yoga photo. But this IS yoga. Comfortable seated position while my students were in savasana. Just taking a moment to feel immense gratitude for how I’ve gotten here. How seemingly random series of events and ordinary moments lead to something so utterly magical. Teaching. Guiding. Holding space. 💕 Смотреть полностью
