⠀ This forest literally took my breath away. Just a few minutes on the trail and you’re surrounded by trees so tall they disappear into the fog, and moss so green you question whether or not your eyes are lying to you. Whenever I explore and am surrounded by jaw dropping nature I get this insane rush. Time sort of stops and I feel alive. Like all senses ignited, fully present, completely connected kind of alive. It’s grounding and nourishing and inspiring all in one, and it becomes addicting. So I just make sure to plan lots of adventures, and get my fix. 🧚‍♀️ ⠀ wearing: @beyondyoga #livebeyond

⠀ Wonder is one of the wildest elements and qualities on the massive scale of human experience. Just a pinch of it stops time. The world halts. The eyes fill.

⠀ you are far more than pictures on a screen. you are flesh and bone, heart and mind, passion and soul. - j. iron word ⠀ Don’t forget to look up - not just to see, but to connect with what’s in front of you. Laugh often. With others, with yourself, and at yourself (especially when you fall in the lake... in November... swipe to see the goods). Don’t take life too seriously my friends. It’s more fun when you roll with the messiness and be fluid in the unfolding of it all. 💫

⠀ Our ability to feel things deeply is what makes us human. But how often are we tapping into that space of vulnerability? We are all the same - we are all totally capable of loving. So why not love BIG today. Make it your intention. Be proud of it. Notice when a challenge arises, and how can you learn from it? Let go of assumptions of what others may think. Be vulnerable. Vulnerability translates into strength, and strength looks good on anybody. Let others in. Teach them how to do the same. Give someone a hug. Squeeze them tight. They’ll likely feel inspired to do the same. Sometimes the tiniest acts of love can fill up the biggest space in someone’s heart. Be that person today. Create a ripple effect. ⠀ Day 5 of #courageousheartyogis is a standing backbend.

⠀ I think there is something really cool about the unknown. It used to scare me (not knowing what was coming/ not feeling prepared) but now I just get excited for the surprise of it all. I think it’s good to have a plan, but keep it loose. I think structure serves people well, but maintain some fluidity. There is absolutely no way of predicting the future, and it’s a waste of energy trying to do so - so pull yourself back and be grateful for where you’re at right now, what you’ve got, and find happiness in the present. This will shift your perspective. This will replace your fears and anxieties surrounding the unknown with excitement and gratitude. It’s a practice. We have to remind ourselves to be okay with the unfolding of it all. We have to let go of control. Life is a crazy, messy, wild ride and it’s easy to get lost trying to figure it all out. So don’t. Just be. ⠀ PC: @juliiathompson & edits by me #writtenbyme #writtenbymik #wordsoftheday #yogaoffthemat #myyogajournal #letgooffear #lifeofadventure #exploretocreate #artofvisuals #wildernessculture #embracetheunknown #hellobc #exploremore #awakethesoul #beautifulbc #livefolk #pnwparadise #allaboutadventures #herpnwlife

⠀ I truly believe that we attract the energy we give off. Whatever vibration we put out ends up coming back around at some point. So why not spread good vibes? Why not make someones day? Why not talk to a stranger, or share a smile, or do something for someone without expecting anything in return? It feels good when it’s coming from an authentic place. It’s not forced. There’s not usually a lot of thought behind it. You just do good. Be good. Feel good. Live with an open heart, think with an open mind, and give someone a hug today ... cause it feels goooood 💛 ⠀ Day 1 of #courageousheartyogis is #kingpigeon #ekapadarajakapotasana ✨ See @melissa.moffet for day 2 tomorrow yogis! ⠀ Hosts: @melissa.moffet @mikmill @bendybree @lexcreid ⠀ Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves @air.and.earth#igyogachallenge #igyogafam #igyogacommunity #yogachallenge #myyogajourney #aloyogachallenge #beagoodhuman #livealifeyoulove #yogaeverywhere #spreadgoodvibes #myyogapractice #yogajourney

. The goal isn’t to get as much done as possible - to “do it all” or to check off every box on your list. Getting stuck in the mindset of: “once I have ____ I’ll be happy” is only going to pull you further away from the present. The future can be fun to think about, but it can also be a bit of a trap. Check in, take a deep breath, and instead try asking yourself: what am I grateful for in this moment, right here? ⠀ The goal is to find happiness right where you’re at instead of constantly reaching for more. The goal is to connect with what’s in front of you, and be willing to slow down so that you can truly see it. Create goals for yourself, work at them daily, but let go of the hustle, the rush, and tap into the flow of it all. That’s when you start to appreciate life. That’s when you start to thrive. 🤘🏻 ⠀ wearing: @beyondyoga #livebeyond PC: @mariam.ordubadi #hellobc #vancouveryoga #igyogafam #exploretocreate #myyogapractice #myyogajournal #yogaeverywhere #yogaoffthemat #outdooryoga #mountainyoga #pittlake #beautifulbc #practiceyogachangeyourworld #mindfulliving

⠀ It takes practice to slow down and tune in. To notice your thoughts and decide which ones are here to serve you (soak those bad boys up) and which ones are here just messing with your intuition (fed by fear/ego/insecurities/etc.) and need to get the f*ck out. ⠀ Lately I’ve been driven by the question: “why not?” - why not try it, why not go for ____ , why not make the plan, why not book the flight, why not buy the shelf that’s $30 more (real life contemplation). If I notice my mind bouncing around when trying to make a decision, or if I’m contemplating something, I ask myself: “why not?” And sometimes “what have you got to lose?” - usually it leaks into the excitement of “what’s going to come of this” and “you won’t know unless you try” sort of thing. It’s a shift in the thought process - it’s slow, it’s mindful, it’s like pushing all the crap to the side and making a path for clear, conscious, authentic thoughts. The ones that are true to you and the ones that are linked to your highest self (aka badass unstoppable high vibing human self). This has been a big part of my practice lately. It leaves me present and cheezin’. Try it out, create a shift, what have you got to lose? 🤘🏻 ⠀ #livelifetothefullest #livealifeyoulove #mindbodysoul #lifeofadventure #positivethinking #mindfulliving #mindfulnessmatters #yogisofinstagram #igyoga #mindbodygram #myyogajourney #myyogajournal #mywords #frommyhearttoyours #beagoddess

⠀ Wake up. Check in. Notice your breath, your heartbeat, your energy. Recognize and appreciate where you are, who surrounds you and what surrounds you. Smile because you’re here. Now smile again because this life is rad, and you have the power to explore, create, and evolve daily. Challenge yourself. Try new things. Be kind. Be love. Be the branch of good vibes that reaches everyone you come into contact with. ↠ L I V E ↞ ⠀ PC: @christinamillingtonphotography & edits by me #livelifetothefullest #livealifeyoulove #mindbodysoul #lifeofadventure #positivethinking #mindfulliving #mindfulnessmatters #yogisofinstagram #igyoga #mindbodygram #myyogajourney #myyogajournal #mywords #frommyhearttoyours #beagoddess

⠀ It’s okay if you don’t know where you’re headed. It’s okay to not have it all figured out. Think about the anxieties that come with trying to predict the future. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Now think about the adventure that comes hand in hand with the unknown. The possibilities. The potentials. The different versions of yourself that are revealed as you journey through each level of life. It’s amazing, right? ⠀ It’s like we’re all superheroes - figuring out our strengths and learning from our weaknesses (and lovin’ on them) with every event or experience we encounter. We aren’t just born ready to do all the things - we gotta evolve. Situations will challenge you, and the choices you make will shape who you are. So choose: be a badass human, embrace your inner superhero and grow a little more each day. Or be resistant to it all and let fear hold you back from your infinite potential. What’s it going to be? 🤘🏻✨ ⠀ wearing: @beyondyoga #livebeyond PC: @christinamillingtonphotography (love ya cuz) #bethebestyou #livingmybestlife #yogaoffthemat #myyogajourney #myyogajournal #hellobc #positivity #myyogalife #livealifeyoulove #vancouveryoga #lifeofadventure #yogadaily #embraceyourself

⠀ Throwback to moody vibes in Sooke, BC. We stumbled upon some heavy fog on route back to Victoria. @curious_cait spotted this field off the road, so naturally we made @whoa.weird pull over. It was misty and magical. We ran into the foggy abyss like excited little kids - completely captivated by the feel of it all, the softness. Mother Nature was showing off - so we captured some moments which now serve as memories. Simple, yet unforgettable. Why? Because we were completely present. I love shit like this. Thanks for seeing the beauty in the small things with me @curious_cait 🌿 ⠀ #explorebc #sookebc #vancouverisland #travelbc #lifeofadventure #optoutside #exploretocreate #createscenery #beautifulbritishcolumbia #vanisle #explorevancouverisland #discoverbc #hellobc

⠀ Update: My pants are covered in fruit juice and tuna. My hands are grass stained. I’m sure I’ve got a mixture of food and boogers in my hair. I’m now an expert at Pokémon, and slowly but surely working up to the title of hockey/swimming/ballet “mom”. Oh, and my cheeks hurt from smiling all day long. How cool is that? ⠀ Working with kids is such a blessing. Not only are they hilarious but they’re just so full of life. They are as real and raw as it gets. A constant reminder to be yourself, not give a shit about what others think, and to find joy in the simple and little things in life. Pretty stoked to have the opportunity to care for two little nuggets this year alongside teaching yoga.

⠀ ⠀ 3 Ways to manifest and create a life you love: ⠀ ⤀ Practice an attitude of gratitude. Find an appreciation for all that you have now - in this moment. ⤀ Get clear on what you want and never settle for mediocre. Believe in yourself. You are so worthy of your dreams. ⤀ Trust the process. The ups and the downs. Let go of anything that doesn’t serve you or make you feel amazing, and create space for more “new” in your life. ⠀ Happy weekending beautiful people! ⠀ Wearing @beyondyoga #livebeyond #manifest #trusttheprocess #manifestyourdreams #liveauthentic #livealifeyoulove #lifeofadventure #outdoorliving #optoutside #livewithintention
