The beautiful @yogajulz tagged me to share 10 facts about myself, so here goes.
1 - I love eating healthily. Traveling makes that a lot harder, so it's one of the things I'm most excited about in going home soon.
2 - I have a Spotify playlist labelled 'Guilty Pleasure Childhood Edition' and it always gets me out of a hump. What is on it? Lots of Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake and Salt'n'Peppa to sing along to.
3 - Speaking of which: I'm an awful singer, but that doesn't stop me from constantly singing and making up weird little tunes.
4 - My boyfriend calls me 'the Snacker' because I'm always looking for the next opportunity for food.
5 - I don't like belly buttons. My own, or other people's.
6 - I've never not voted in an election I was eligible to vote in (please go vote on Sunday, German peeps)
7 - Every sunset makes me fall in love with this planet even more.
8 - The pain of getting a tattoo is nothing in my eyes compared to the pain of plucking my eyebrows.
9 - I have monkey feet.
10 - I discovered in Bali that geckos make sounds and I am now obsessed with that noise. Google it! It's amazing.

Good morning sunshines .
Today I woke up super groggy, not wanting to get up. 🤦🏼♀️
Having a @wholefoods within walking distance of work has been a God send. 🏼 I stopped by on my way to work and got a juice full of all the essentials to perk me up and keep me going through my PT session tonight 🏽
What's your favorite juice combo?

- Yoga this way -
And so it begins... The time has finally come for me to start my yoga teacher training. Welcome circle is done and I have met all my fellow yogis, who I will be embarking on this journey with.
Class starts tomorrow at 5:30am!
Logging off from social media for a little while, so I can totally immerse myself in the training. See ya soon xo
I never love my body as much as after I finish a yoga practice. I'm so grateful for the feeling I get when I flow and connect with my breath and body on such a visceral level. It's so powerful. On occasion, it even moves me to chills or tears.
The health of the mind and body are deeply intertwined. Being out in nature and moving our meat machines just does something to us that goes beyond intellect. It penetrates to the core of what it really means to BE human. We are animals, designed to move and eat natural things around us. But our modern lifestyle is so far removed from what our instinct craves. We now exercise in a room with fluorescent lights and polluted air. Don't get me wrong, I love the gym- I used to work at one! But biking with a video screen in front of you is not a true replacement for the great outdoors.
I know I'm not telling you something new. In fact, you've probably heard it so much it annoys you by now. But in my own life, I find that simply being reminded of these nuggets of wisdom makes a small change in me. We need those constant reminders to take care of ourselves and be better people. For me, yoga changes my whole day. My mood, my eating habits and even sleeping. What is it that you like to do that makes you feel healthier? Can you do it a bit more and maybe outdoors? I've been taking part in the #yogaeverydamnday challenge and I can already see it making a difference. Now it's time for you to challenge yourself in your own way. Your future self thanks you. 🤝
Lately I've been thinking a lot about fire. The thing that drives you to do the things you can't control. That seed that determines passion in you. For me, it's love, my daughters, and fitness - these are the strongest pillars in my life. They consistently keep me going throughout the day, and help put every day into perspective.
Love motivates me to be better, raw, and authentic.
My daughters teach me to be strong and fearless.
And fitness guides me and leads me to empowerment and taking control of my life.
What are your pillars and how do you incorporate them into a positive mantra? #createyourreality
