A reminder to slow down & breath today by the beautiful @heatherbowmanyoga 🙏🏼 Join her on Thursday’s at 9:30am for Soul Burn. #repost ・・・ Yoga practice or not, give yourself time for deep breathing. Deep diaphragmatic breathing can calm the nervous system, stimulate the lymphatic system, improve organ function, relieve pain and lower your chances of getting sick. Give it a try.... Lay on your back with knees bent or find a comfortable seat. Bring one hand to your chest and one to your belly. Inhale through the nose and feel the belly rise (try to keep the chest still). Exhale out the mouth and feel the belly lower. Continue for 5-10min or however long you have. Remember... something is always better than nothing. ✌️❤️🧘🏻♀️
I’ve felt SUPER sluggish the last few days. I think I’ve pinpointed a few reasons- some I can control, some I can’t. Days 3 and 4 of #roadtopincha are hamstring stretch and shoulder strengthener. My hammies are extra tight tonight. Hosts: @yogawesermarsch @yogiaubrey @lottasebzdayoga @northernstar_yoga Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves
I’m neither late nor early. Currently on my personal timeline... . . . Growing like a vine. Drawing closer to the divine. All while elongating the spine. And embracing what’s uniquely mine. ✨ Remember to show some love through your personal path! ✨💜✨ #respectthejourney#notetoself#deylynn

It’s finally dropped below 70 degrees here in charlotte so I’ve taken full advantage and opened all my windows. It makes my apartment feel so much more fall-ish having the natural cool air coming in. I e spent the day all cozied up on the couch watching Halloweentown and stretching. Day 2 of #roadtopincha is core strengthener Hosts: @yogiaubrey @northernstar_yoga @yogawesermarsch @lottasebzdayoga Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves
Decided to join in on #roadtopincha because I need some motivation to still practice my pincha. So here’s a shoulder stretch for day 1. I noticed a huge difference in the openness of my shoulders after I started practicing with a yoga wheel.

Looking backwards and thinking over the past in an attempt to improve today and the future... 💫 I’ve been thinking about the necessity of regularly reflecting on the past as honestly as possible. It’s a necessary exercise that enables us to learn and grow. This isn’t the same as dwelling on the past and letting it eat away at you. What I’m talking about is examining the past. ✨ I’ve also been thinking about people in my life who consider any examination of the past to be the same as dwelling...and who end up repeating the same mistakes over and over...and then maybe go on to discourage others from examining their past with the advice on how “It’s best not to dwell on the past.” ✨ In my personal life, I often find myself at odds with those who choose to reject any real examination of the past. It’s often paired with a refusal to engage in any meaningful self-examination. ...and often, the same people come and ask me what’s my “secret” to being a fundamentally happy individual living a life I’m happy with...! 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ I think this is the part where I have to actively cultivate compassion... 🧘🏻♀️ It’s so easy to have compassion for other people just like ourselves...because, well, we can understand them more readily. I do think the real value of compassion, though, is when we can offer it to individuals unlike ourselves...to simply hold space and let them handle what they need to handle...and accept that the goal doesn’t need to involve “reforming” the other person. ✨🧘🏻♀️🌈 Which leads to my final thought: Sometimes, what we need to do is simply lead by example. 🌺🧘🏻♀️🌸 I’m enjoying my new fox printed hoodie from @flowerofliving. It’s perfect for the weather change as we get into fall. Interested in getting some @flowerofliving gear of your own? Use the code FOLF&F20 at checkout to get 20% off...! 🌸🧘🏻♀️🌺 #yogaeverydamnday

There are so many things about this picture that I think about when I look at it. My first thought when I was this still from the other week was “wow, I don’t hate the way my body looks”. I was initially surprised. Normally I pick apart my body in pictures like this. But I didn’t. I didn’t even have anything negative to say. And that felt great. The second thing I noticed was the expression on my face. This shot came directly after attempting and failing at getting into super soldier for a solid 10 min. I COULD NOT for the life of me figure out how the pose worked. I stopped trying for a second and laughed. I didn’t get frustrated or angry that I couldn’t get it. I just laughed and tried again. And eventually I got it. And wow that’s a change for me. It reminded me that I shouldn’t take these small struggles too seriously. I should just keep trying. With everything in life- keep trying and you will get there. Small victories are still victories.
