If you look up the definition of ‘Alter ego’ you will find the history of the term as well as several definitions. Personally, I like to think of the term ‘alter ego’ as the best, purest, most ideal version of myself. The one I am continuously striving to attain. ⁣

A book I’ve really been enjoying this summer is ‘Spiritual Growth, being your higher self’ by Sanaya Roman. ⁣

Chapter 16, titled ‘Enlightenment Through Service’ has some really great pearls of wisdom. ⁣

“Empowering other people means assisting them in making positive changes in their lives.”⁣

Empowerment means loving people rather than saving them. Ask yourself, ⁣

“How does what I am doing serve this person to become more self-sufficient and independent?” ⁣

When you meet people, think of what you can contribute to them, not what you will get from them. Ask yourself, ⁣

“How can I serve them with my words or actions?” ⁣

Any time you come from your heart, speak with love, and assist people in recognizing their divinity, you shift their consciousness.⁣

“All teaching is learning. All empowerment of others is self-empowerment.” ⁣

Hope you have the best week ever!⁣

Happy Monday you gorgeous people 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend! ⁣

“Time passes unhindered. When we make mistakes, we cannot turn the clock back and try again. All we can do is use the present well.”⁣

Have an awesome amazing week! ⭐️ ⁣

love⁣

1. An intense feeling of deep affection.⁣
2. A great interest and pleasure in something. ⁣
3. A person or thing that one loves.⁣
4. A friendly form of address used to express affectionate approval for someone.⁣

I fell in love with Yoga when my other love, my husband James, was suddenly deployed to Iraq. While he was gone, I felt lonely and alone. So alone. All I could do was keep my faith that he would make it home safely back to me, and take the best care of myself I could to stay healthy for him. I feel like in a way, I took the love I usually gave him and gave it to myself by beginning a regular yoga practice. I fell really hard for yoga. I had joined a fitness center and started going to all the yoga classes they offered. You could say I was hooked : ) ⁣

They had two classes, one was some weekday mornings and the other some weekday nights. One was more relaxing, and the other was more power. I remember thinking to myself that the power instructor sounded like an auctioneer with how fast she would talk and have us move. Both classes were challenging in their own ways and both equally amazing. It was the best of both worlds.⁣

Since then, I have taught so many people yoga. I have loved every second of it. I knew within the first week of beginning yoga classes that I would teach yoga. I REALLY loved it. Growing up, my mom drove me to countless ballet classes. For me, yoga is like ballet, but better. I do yoga for myself, to stay healthy and feeling good, feeling strong, not to perform for someone else. I share yoga with others, and will continue to share it with others, because it is such an amazing pathway to health and happiness. ⁣

I love the versatility within yoga, of all its different forms and styles. There is truly something for everyone. The fact that I get to do what I love, and share it with people, is simply the greatest job in the entire world. I look forward to getting to share yoga with many more through different avenues such as my website and YouTube.⁣

There is no greater gift in this life than doing what you love and getting to share it with others.⁣

Hope you all are having a great week! Happy hump day my friends : ) ❤️ A⁣

Barre combines movements from ballet, yoga and Pilates. We work at the barre, on the mats and center floor on our feet to get the best of isometric exercises as well as high rep, small range of motion in order to really target particular muscles and get that burn going! 🔥

War•ri•or⁣

1. A brave or experienced soldier or fighter known to have courage and skill. ⁣
2. A person engaged in some struggle or conflict.⁣
3. Any number of standing poses in yoga in which the legs are held apart and the arms are stretched outwards.⁣

✨🌛💜 Warrior pose battles inner weakness & wins focus. In practicing yoga regularly, we create space for ourselves to move & breathe, oftentimes discovering that there is actually no war waging within us, although at times life can certainly make us feel that way!💜🌜✨

✨🌜We are all everyday warriors in our own unique ways; we each face our own battles in our lives. My best advice to my yoga clients when practicing this pose is to look straight ahead out over your fingertips, directly where you are going. This strong gaze is symbolic for how we should be moving through our lives—with strength, purpose and dedication.🌛✨ ⁣

✨💜🌜Face your fears and opponents, and know where you are going. Make a plan if needed. When we can face our fears head on, half the battle has already been won.🌛💜✨⁣

u•nit ⁣⁣⁣
1. An individual thing or person regarded as single and complete but which can also form an individual component of a larger or more complex whole.
⁣⁣⁣
pack⁣⁣⁣
1. A small cardboard or paper container and the items contained within it. ⁣⁣⁣
2. A group of wild animals, especially wolves, living and hunting together.
⁣⁣⁣
Wolves 🐺 live, hunt and survive together, much in the way that humans do, albeit in a different environment. Humans watch out for each other, and have each other’s backs. Sometimes we forget that we have this amazing support system around us, and regress to feeling alone or more like a unit. Remember that you always have someone there who loves you, cares about you and who you can reach out to. Don’t ever forget that you are part of something greater, more special, and more powerful than you will ever know. Life is an amazing gift that must be appreciated each and every day we get to live it. Ask yourself, what can I do for myself and my ‘pack’ today to improve our lives? How can I give more? What can I do to leave this world a better place? These are deep thoughts, but don’t ever forget how incredibly unique, gifted and special you are. Let me know what you’re doing today in the comments below to improve your life or someone else’s 🥰 ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Oh and Happy Friday Friends! We made it woo-hoooo 💪🏻✨🐺⁣

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re both absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” -Jo Walton⁣

🌙☁️✨🌙☁️✨🌙☁️✨🌙☁️🌙✨⁣
As I’ve had to invest more time and money into my new business, it has made me feel like perhaps I’m taking away from what I could be giving to my friends, family, and self as usual. It has been stressful. It has been different. It’s been amazing because it’s pushing me beyond my comfort zone and just biting the bullet and getting down to the nitty and gritty of creating my own brand has been exhilarating, to say the least. Trusting that the universe has my back has been my saving grace. Keep on daring to go for what you truly want and you will get there!!! One day at a time, one foot in front of the other. Each Olympic athlete that ever won started somewhere. Ask yourself, “What can I do today to keep working towards my goals?” Races can’t be won if we don’t enter them. Nothing is given without asking first. Dare to dream. Go for what you want and desire the most in your life. Because no matter how small of a step you are taking towards what you really want, it’s still a step in the right direction!!! ⁣

Some days it’s good to just get back to basics. Some days, my yoga practice consists of just breathing and being. Life happens and situations change, sometimes even day to day. The important thing is to stick with it and know that it is always there for you. The feelings you create for yourself in your body and mind on your mat are always there for you if you simply tap into your breath. Connect to yourself and be present. Observe your thoughts and keep only the ones that serve you and your highest good. Yoga is happening constantly. The moment you step off your mat you bring what you created there with you. And you don’t always need a mat 😉

✨ Our Mind is super powerful. With it we have the power to shape our reality ✨ Be mindful of your thoughts. Watch them. A good way to do this is through yoga. Take a moment each day to pause, breathe and listen. Again, be mindful of your thoughts. Your thoughts create your world 🌎 Your thoughts inform your words, and your reality. Really listen and begin to get very choosy with which thoughts you allow into your mind. Only you get to listen to your chosen thoughts. How you talk to yourself about yourself informs your life. Do you want to be surrounded by beautiful clear skies or dark and stormy clouds? You get to decide 🌌 ⁣

💠 Saturdays 💠 8:30 AM 💠⁣
💠Pacific Yew Yoga 💠 Starting THIS WEEKEND 💠 Yoga with weights is one of my all time favorite classes to teach. No matter how long it’s been since I’ve picked up my weights, I ALWAYS get a killer workout and feel amazing afterwards. It’s seriously the best!!! The class is challenging but also very doable. If you are looking to take your yoga practice to the next level 💯 then this is gonna be the class that’s gonna do it for ya 😉 I will be filming and offering classes worldwide starting this summer! These will be exclusively on my site and YouTube 💠 In person classes are always better so hopefully you are nearby and can come try it sometime! If you are local and prefer lifting heavier weights, please bring a pair of five or more pound weights. Fives is usually all I lift during yoga because yoga is already pretty intense 😉 As this class grows we will increase weights 💪🏻 @ Pacific Yew Yoga

Some of you have asked me where you can get the essential oils that we used during our Mother's Day Mini Retreat Yoga & Essential Oils class.
