This is far from perfect but it’s the best it’s ever been! It’s always nice to feel gains, especially because when it comes to any endeavor, sometimes you can go for weeks, months or even years without seeing any gains because life doesn’t always allow you to practice or train as much as you would like. Life has been pretty crazy over the past two months and I need to remind myself of this, as I haven’t been able to practice many of things that I love as often, like yoga and jiu jitsu. However, I’m grateful for all the amazing traveling experiences I’ve had and I wouldn’t trade them in. Just trying to not feel guilty over taking two months off of jiu jitsu. I’ve seriously considered quitting this week out of guilt. But the sport won’t get rid of me yet 😉.

Reaching for those 2018 goals...I know I post and talk a lot about inversions, and what inversions have displayed to me are weaknesses in my practice: my core and my hip and shoulder mobility, so instead of doing handstands every day I’ve shifted my gaze and attention to those areas of weakness, in order to strengthen my practice overall. I’ve been doing the @erinkellyart core challenge on codyapp and it’s amazing i love it! .

Sometimes we need to slow down. But we don’t. Not until we’re forced to, either due to health or anything else that happens that might make us take a step back. It might feel like a draw back at the time, but it doesn’t always have to be. Once in a while slowing down is essential, in order to rest and recover. It applies on all levels, but for me it’s easiest to relate to the physical. It’s why we take savasana at the end of our yoga practice, so we can download what our bodies just did for us. If you train hard, you need to recover so you can actually benefit from the rigorous training that you put your body through. Your muscles need to rest, and so do your heart and spirit too, sometimes. Let yourself heal. How does this relate to this video? I had to take rest for much longer than I normally do, in fact i rarely take a rest day. But when I came back to my practice I felt stronger, and was able to go deeper and make progress on postures that I’ve been working so hard on, like this hollowback pincha. Recover now, so you can go deeper later. Much more on this on my new podcast: The Peaceful Warrior Podcast. Link in my bio.

Sense of accomplishment! Life is a lot like hiking, I think. You start at the bottom, and often have no idea how the trail will wind and what things will look like at the top, but the harder you work and the more you challenge yourself the more you get out of it. #viewsfromthetop .

Hip mobility is 🔑 ...recently the focus of my practice has been on hip stabilization and flexibility, as I've realized how essential it is for many other postures that I'm constantly working on such as splits and inversions. I've never focused much attention on my hips and just accepted how tight they were, until I realized how much they were affecting my practice. I feel like the emphasis I've placed on hip mobility has already deepened my practice. The moral of the story is don't ignore your hips! .

That gaze shift has me obsessed. Making some #progress after what feels like practicing forever. Also currently head over heals for backbends, like I need more. .

This gaze shift thing is my new obsession! It's forcing me to focus on shoulder and hip mobility which my practice is in desperate need of. .

There's something so special  about ancient ruins. The energy is magical...I look around and try to imagine what it would have been like 2000 years ago when it was the Zapotec capital ✨

Sure, if you're strong and/or flexible it's easy to get into the challenging or flashy yoga postures. What's really hard is mindful movement; moving with grace. Graceful transitions are the toughest part of my practice. It means I have to stay in my body and not let my mind wander. It means using control, which takes more strength than a handstand. It's easy to throw your limbs around and land in a decent posture, but it's about the journey more so than the destination; yoga is a practice and not an end result. .

I can't believe it's already been two months since I moved to San Diego! Thinking about it makes me nostalgic, and as much as I try to live in the present, I'm grateful for all of the events that brought me here and led me to this point in my life (even the tough times, because I can truly see their purpose now) #grateful .
