Couldn’t post these last 2 days because my IG app kept on crashing. Super annoying, but it is what it is. Back in Austria now (hubby joined us this time ☺️) and we already took him on a hike. Yesterday was the last day of #yogasummerfling - thank you to everyone who joined! Hosts: @twistedgalpal @calamityjilla @sdharamr @shiniyogi @yoga_mami @zenbeeni Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves
What other people think of me is none of my business. My daily mantra. Something I try to live by and what I try to teach my kids. Ever since this mantra “clicked”, I’ve been having so much fun. In other news - is this not the cutest cow ever? She was so curious and wouldn’t leave my side. Day 8 #YogaSummerFling - your mantra.

Probably one of my favorite things is playing around with balance. To find that focus, the stillness, the determination to get back up and try again after you fall flat on your butt (about 200 times). Day 5 #YogaSummerFling is any balance pose.

I’ve been going on all these amazing hikes lately. Every time I plan another hike, I fully intend to take some cool yoga shots on top of the mountain. But then by the time we actually make it to the top, I’m usually too exhausted to even think about taking a picture 😝 Day 4 #YogaSummerFling is any seated pose.

Went on a 3 hour hike up a mountain, then bought some new hiking shoes after and decided to break them in by going on another 2 hour hike. Needless to say my kids and my mom were not impressed with me (yup, they tagged along)😝😂 Day 3 #yogasummerfling is any standing pose.

We’re currently in the Austrian alps and I had envisioned all these amazing shots. Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned, and we got stuck in a crazy thunderstorm up on a mountain. But that’s ok. We’re ok, that’s all that matters. It’s back bending day for day 1 of #yogawithourkids - sometimes our littles join in, sometimes they don’t. Little dude was clearly done here 😝 Hosts: @juliemeo_yogalife @mommy.yoga @sdharamr @thegivingmom @yoga_mami Sponsors: @vayumudra @ayurvedapura @supportedsoul @meddyteddy @yogababyclothing @liforme
We arrived in Germany yesterday - just in time for this crazy heat wave 🔥🔥🔥 Haven’t been doing much, besides lying around and eating a ton of ice cream 😜 Jetlag and heat definitely don’t go well together, but it’s so good to be back in my home country!
Happy international yoga day! Here’s a few bloopers to celebrate! Enjoy!
I got asked by the lovely @sigikolbeyoga to share #tenrandomfactsaboutme - so here it goes: 1. I have 4 middle names (thanks, mom 😜). My full name is Josephine Isabella Margarete Ellen Charlotte Jacob. Makes signing documents REALLY fun! 🤣 2. I have one coffee a day, no more no less. 3. I was severely anemic when I was a child, and had to get my blood tested every week for a few years. I’m all better now. 4. I named my first son, Kaniel, after my Uncle Daniel who passed away at age 21. 5. Little dude bruised my ribs when I was pregnant with him - needless to say, it was a pretty uncomfortable pregnancy. 6. My kids are mixed, and I often get mistaken for the nanny or German Au-pair when we’re out and about 🙄 7. I hate cumin. 8. With my kids both loving to act and shooting commercials/shows, I guess that makes me a stage mom? 9. I am a planner through and through, and stress out easily. Hubby tells me time and time again to “just go with it” (that never happens). 10. I love to adventure, and am currently planning a hiking trip with my 13 year old. We will either do Mount Everest base camp, Machu Picchu, or the Camino de Santiago or somewhere across the Alps in Europe. Any suggestions?
Motherhood isn’t creation. I didn’t choose your nose, hair or wild disposition. I didn’t select what would make you cry, or the colors you’d be drawn to. I didn’t put the sparkle in your eyes, or the bells in your laugh. I may have mixed the ingredients, but I didn’t write the recipe. No, motherhood is not creation. It’s the tending of a garden, knees in the rocky mud, sweat dripping into eyes under the hot but life giving sun. A sprinkling of water. The endless picking of weeds. Guarding against hungry beasts. Joy as the first sprouts appear. There is no creation in motherhood. No ownership. Only stewardship. And a quiet but profound faith that if cared for the child will bloom. - Bunmi Laditan
