Nature isn’t curated, so why do we try so hard to be? Can we give up everything that’s between ourselves and what we want? Can we soften, listen, &  hand over the trying to just -Be -? Yes, we can, but how do we do that? First, by not listening to the voice that reasons or doubts Trusting our fullest potential, our capability, and knowing our worth is more than what we see with our two eyes, more than what we hear between our two ears. You are more than words. Allow yourself to spill over & out even if just for yourself. This place of self-acceptance is where all that matters begins. Start there, and the rest will follow. 💕 . .

A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful. She is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence, is a gift to the world. ⠀ -Native American Saying ⠀ You are a gift to the world, men & women. We contain these energies within, embrace, and balance your wholeness. Happy Monday to you! . . . #elfeatheryoga #utkatakonasana #selfdiscovery

I was invited by @lizfair_ to share some quarantine confessions of what has transgressed over the last two weeks. Well...do you want the good, the bad, & the fugly? ⠀ For starters, rainbows help get me through. I was angered at first by what was happening around the world. Seeking truth, I will be sharing a YouTube playlist in my Stories I have saved to share on this topic. ⠀ Back to self-love through eating healing/nourishing foods and seeing how that totally influences the way I feel. ⠀ I booked my first (ever) counseling appoinment. After having some dark days during this time, I reached out. It's been a long time in the works but what better time to begin than now... ⠀ What else? How can I serve you? I feel most useful when I'm helping others. Are there any requests that you have, yoga pose tips/questions, meditation requests, or advice that I can assist you with? Comment or DM me. I'm always here! . . . #elfeatheryoga #parighasana #makeyourselfapriority

Sending you some sunshine today Gonna blast it out ☀️☀️☀️ ⠀ The Spirit of Yoga abounds! Surrounds us & within us! 💜 ⠀ If you seen my stories yesterday, I was catching rainbows of the sun passing through the water container. Something about light I’ve always been enchanted with. I have this fond memory as kid looking at the light streaming in through the morning window. I could see dust particles that were floating through the air. That was trippy stuff as a four year old! 😄 “El” from my name here means “Light” from a meaning I found. And like a child again I was playing in the light spectrum. That spectrum of light is the pure energy of our world, and what a wonder to engage it. Sending love & encouragement to you during this time. I hope you're taking time to engage your body, your health, and mental well-being. I know that’s been my work here lately. 💜 . Happy good ol’ #forearmfriday 🌈 . . . #elfeatheryoga #freespirit #sunshineforthesoul

When you remember who you are and how far you've come, you are no longer bound by the movement of the world. Instead, you find your peace and solace independent from everything else. You become and are the sacred pathway to the freedom you seek. . . . #elfeatheryoga #setyourselffree #onebreathatatime

During today's practice, I was focused on my breath more than anything. Breathing fully into the inner space where it needed to go and fully exhaling to touch that inner space—acknowledging my hurt, my strength, and the healing processes. A lot has come up for me with all of the changes in the world, but I am grateful to how the practice greatly aids me to integrate, process, and release. Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday, friends! .

An Ode to my Dad on his Birthday . Maybe I try so hard cause you're not here Remembering when your support and love were near The loneliness in my heart holds a reservoir for you So much wonder about us, but if I only knew Young and bright-eyed,  I was looking ahead You left this earth too soon, the incomprehensible But mending and healing led me to a peace I found Uncovering clues like you left them here for me to find In Dreamtime we meet, sharing talks and easy speaks I see you on my face in the mirror of You Our goodnight hugs I still recall, scraggly whiskers and all Proud to be called your daughter and to call you my Dad ⠀ #missyoudad #selfdiscovery #elfeatheryoga

Even in difficult times—especially in difficult times—it's important to celebrate #NationalPuppyDay 🐶❤️ ⠀ Filmed last December in Virginia at our family farmland. It was so beautiful to be out there and watch these two running free. This is where we were staying when they showed up at our back door a year ago, unannounced, hungry, and without a home. We took them in and named them Sadie & Brutus, and it's been happily ever after since! ⠀ #whorescuedwho #alllifeissacred #honortheearth

With so much to feel lately, I use my breath to guide me through. What is unknown will soon be revealed. I am here, I am present, and I am not alone. These deep dark feelings of hopelessness and despair for humanity in myself, I wish I could repair. Though I cannot change what appears in the world, I can choose how I will perceive, to enter the heart, to heal what's broken, and lost within. Theirs is mine, and mine is theirs. Fully connected, I feel the heartstrings of the conscious web tugging, asking to be seen. It's through this mindfulness, love, and breath that I return to face the day. Holding it all, I let go just a little bit. I am healing the whole within myself when I choose to be in this space and befriend the unknown. . Feel it, breathe, and move it through.

There is nowhere quite like home as the space inside your breath 🌬 ⠀ Maybe you're feeling disconnected today. See if you can hold space for your tenderness to reach through and sweep you up in self-love. You can handle anything, you were born to rise to the occasion. Decide one thing that will bring you peace & joy today. Perhaps, learn something new Listen to uplifting/peaceful music Try tea instead of coffee (me!) Perhaps a new way of living, a change of habits Listen to nature, soak up the sun ⠀ When everything seems to be going a million miles around you see if you can find that still place within that's always there inside your breath, waiting. ⠀ Affirm: My body is healthy, my mind is bright, my soul is at peace ⠀ Wishing you all a peaceful and happy day. With love, from me. 💕 ____ Day 2 with #calmmindcalmyogis .

Standing Tall through it All ⠀ Even if it's upside down, I’m looking right side up! . Like the lights went out, navigating a dark road on which you can’t quite see ahead. Looking for answers, an overwhelm of unknown came and reared its ugly head Deciphering the language, which voice is yours, and who will you trust? All becomes clear, as one overcomes, the choice to rise above Remember ur-Self as you wholly make the difference Illuminate the light within, always Life holds the meaning you give What meaning will you give to it? . Give it meaning, #beempowered 🙏🏼💕 . . . #elfeatherwrites #handstanding

Sacred simplicity Breath is the continuity Showing up, detached of outcomes Holding my head high, looking through to the end ⠀ I've never felt more in tune, more passionate, more devoted than I am now. A heart of fire that sees what I can't. Actions to create and bring forth my best. By each step, each ache, straight through the looking glass, and I will not be disappointed in that. . Happy Monday, loves 🙏💕 . . . #elfeatheryoga #ekapadasirsasana #innerfire

Forget who you were and dismiss the reason why. Who Am I when "I Am" is not defined? Beyond ego, beyond searching, void of struggle and pain, there is a place, and I will meet you there someday. Breathe into this moment; allow the breath to be your guide. Trust yourself and see yourself at this time on this ride. The heart is the sanctuary where love resides. Not many will find it, but when they do, a new life will begin. Dive deep into a realm of possibility and create your life. ⠀ We have the power to decide how we feel at this moment and always. I've been steeping into simple pleasures like silence, breathwork, yoga, walks with the dogs, CBD for my headache (and it worked), and taking my time with this caption/post today. No rush just being. ⠀ Happy weekend everyone & love note vibrations 🎶💓💫 . . . #elfeatherwrites #becoming #youare

"Yoga is the dance between the light and dark within you. The light is what brings you back to the mat and the darkness is what you uncover there. Don't be afraid of the darkness; these are only shadows and though you'll have to walk down some pretty dark alleys, remember you are grounded in the light and that light will set you free." - Amy Jirsa . . . #elfeatheryoga #vasisthasana #yogadance

Looking back to this awesome memory. It was the start of a lot of things, one was my #vanlife adventure @allpathsarethesame We camped out the night before this across the Hudson River looking at the city skyline. (see my Stories!) Of course, this stop in NYC wouldn't be complete without my first meetup with @ljbnyc1 during that time. So much growth and expansion since then on both of our parts and I am looking forward to a visit here soon! ⠀ Have a great day everyone 🙏🏼💕 . . . #elfeatheryoga #nycyoga #yogagratitude

True knowledge once gained casts a light beyond its own immediate boundaries. ✨ -John Tyndall ⠀ I saw this quote the other day at the mall, yes of all places. In the center of the mall there’s a huge zodiac system set into the floor with pillars for each astrological sign in a large open circle. So of course I had to see what mine (Leo) ♌️ said and this is what I found. I took a picture, pondered and felt the words. Today has been wonderful! I woke up, meditated, practice full primary, walked the dogs, made breakfast, and now I’m here @foxtailcoffeeco getting to work! Happy Tuesday, everyone, wishing you a beautiful day! . . . #elfeatheryoga #trikonasana #sunriseyoga

Full Moons are for... recharging sleeping in (haha, time change!) taking baths meditation journaling releasing ⠀ The veils between the worlds are thinnest around a full moon, so it's good to be aware of what you allow in. A full moon is best used to clear things out and let anything unwanted in you to be let go of. This Full Moon takes place as Mercury is turning direct, so its a great time to express what you may have been containing for the past three weeks. By giving voice to our thoughts, it opens us up as a channel to the divine. And divine energy is healing. Take time to nurture oneself today and to be creative instead of over consuming from other sources. Fill yourself up from within! Happy Moon Day everybody 🌝💫

It's a Shiva kind of day⁠⠀ ⠀⁠⠀ I've been practicing the state of "no-mind". Creating space where I can notice it amongst the sometimes ceaseless noise. Bringing in more presence to the moment and steeping in this Now. I feel happier and more connected even if that means other things are secondary. Put yourself first! Healthy mind, happy you!⁠ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ #elfeatheryoga⁠⠀ #beingpresent⁠⠀ #shivapose

Okay, I am feeling my energy flowing again. What a new moon! On a similar note, is anyone else feeling the Mercury retrograde? You should've seen me this morning, two incidences. First, as I was opening the refrigerator door, a bowl of dog food came tumbling from the sky! Well, at least it seemed that way. I stood there confused for a minute, and then my love came to see what had happened with the same expression on his face. I learned that our dog Sadie didn't want to eat this morning, so he put it up there... Who knew that would be the consequences! And the second after filling my vitamin case, upon closing it, it all came spilling out onto the counter. Two unusual events in one morning, and then it hit me, Mercury retrograde! We have about two more weeks left, but it's going to feel a little longer—a time for review and reflection. Stay with the process! Happy Monday & Namaste friends . . .
