To everyone who commented on my last post and told me to chop my hair... THANK YOU for the encouragement! I feel a literal and energetic weight lifted off of my shoulders, and I love it!!! I was so afraid to do it, and now I feel so liberated. Take it from me and do that thing that’s been scaring you! It will set you free in ways you can’t even imagine.... . ‍♀️: @aveda @dell.miller @melissahoylehair #styledbyaveda

My hair has been a daily source of frustration for awhile, but especially since winter hit, because it’s pretty fine and tends to tangle and dreadlock in 5 seconds or less. So lately I’ve been thinking really hard about cutting it to a little below my shoulders. ‍♀️ . As much as I already complain about my hair fairly regularly, I’m still pretty attached to it (it’s the devil I know lol) and I’m super scared to cut it short... but this also feels like the very reason I should do it. . I know, hair grows back, but mine grows really slowly. Even so, I’m pretty sure I want to break through the walls of this attachment and experience life on the other side. ️ . I tell myself (and mostly believe) that it will all be really empowering... but I’m also really scared I won’t like it and will have to live with not liking my hair for months... but then I also feel like sitting with and living through those feelings would likely empower me even more. . I can’t decide. The pros and cons are all real. . What do you think? Should I chop it? Or not? Have you cut yours recently? Are you happy you did? Please comment and help me decide! 🤷‍♀️ . Grateful for my friends at @spokeandweal and @aveda because, on the bright side, as much as I’m scared, I trust that no matter what hair choice I make, they’ll have me walking out looking and feeling beautiful. #styledbyaveda

Being a #britapartner feels like a natural next step, because I haven’t bought a single-use plastic water bottle since October, and the taste of my water is really important to me. . Ever since I committed to bringing my own bottle, having access to quality filtered water has been on my mind a lot more than it used to be. . As a result, I’ve had to become more diligent with my preparation to go anywhere. Travel has presented the biggest obstacle, because I don’t always know if filtered water will be available where I’m going. 🤷‍♀️ . I’ve been so committed to avoiding plastic bottles, but so also determined to maintaining my water quality, that, believe it or not, I used to travel with a Brita pitcher (you know, the ones you fill up and keep in the fridge) each time I would book an air bnb... and that thing was bulky to pack! . Now I just bring the new @britausa filtering bottle with a filter in the straw, like I did when I went to Joshua Tree recently. . It’s super easy to pack, and I can have the filtered water I love waiting for me right when I wake up, while still filling up from any tap. Game. Changer.

When the push and pull of life are in balance, it creates space for magic to happen with ease. Time spent practicing acro with @acrowithjon never fails to supply me with epic metaphors to apply to my daily life. This one is especially resonating with me lately. May we all find balance between our flowing and our forcing.

I used to model as a teenager, but I finally quit when it dawned on me that 2 things that held me back, would likely never change: 1. My inability to keep my eyes open while facing the sun (they tear up like crazy and ruin makeup) 2. My (often uncontrollable) impulse to giggle and cheese out every time someone tells me to make a serious face. Well, almost 2 decades later, looks like number 2 is still going strong!

The other day I failed at something when I had really expected to succeed, and I took it pretty badly. I was telling a friend what happened and how I was feeling about it, and they said something to me that I’m so grateful to have learned: it’s ok to fail, as long as you fail forward. It’s so true, and this perspective changed my whole outlook. Failing teaches us important lessons, that we must take heed and learn, so we can avoid failure the next time... and that’s actually an incredibly valuable experience. If you’re dealing with fear of failure right now, let it go, and instead commit to learning every time you fail. If you can do that, then even your failures will be successes. . : @shanarehwald Rocking: @aloyoga

Being a #britapartner feels natural for me, because I bring my reusable bottle with me everywhere I go... but it hasn’t always been this way... . I used to buy a bottle of water every time I went to a yoga class. Sometimes I would buy 2 bottles for hot yoga classes. . The irony of purchasing a very unmindful item to bring with me into my mindful practice isn’t lost on me, but I didn’t see it back then- I wasn’t aware. . As I become more aware of the harmful nature of single use plastic items for our health and environment, I’ve been making a major effort to cut down on my use of these items wherever I can. . It started when I decided to quit buying single use plastic water bottles, and bring my own bottle instead, and it’s snowballed from there into giving up other single-use items like straws, cutlery, bags, seasoning packets, produce bags, etc. . I’m far from perfect and still learning everyday, but I’m doing what I can, and if all of us do just that much, our world will be a better place to live for ourselves and future generations. . With so many awesome sustainable alternatives on the market, it’s easier than you think to give up some of your single-use plastic habits. If this feels daunting, try starting simple, with an easy to avoid item like plastic water bottles, and just bring your own instead. . I like this new filtering bottle from @britausa, because I can fill from any fountain or tap without compromising the taste of my water!

This week has been an intense (and stressful ) one for me, and it seems like everyone I know is feeling it. If you’re feeling it too, hang in there! Monday felt like two days instead of one. Then yesterday was the kind of Tuesday that felt like it should be a Thursday, and today is the kind of Wednesday that feels like it should be a Friday. 🤷‍♀️ I’m reminding myself that, depending on my reaction, the most challenging days often reveal themselves to have been the most rewarding in retrospect... but I have to make it to the other side in order to gain that perspective. Does today feel like a Wednesday to you? . Hanging in there with @acrowithjon, wearing my fave top from @aloyoga

As I continue to consider how I can make this page a more authentic place, something that dawned on me is that I want to mix in more realistic yoga photos. 🧘‍♀️ . At some point, I’m not sure exactly when, my focus for the yoga content I was creating and sharing stopped being yoga, and instead became strictly the background, the outfit, the pose, my hair, my body, my face, and how many likes...formulaically in that order. . It stopped being a result of how I felt in real moments like it used to be, and started being about how I wanted to look like I felt in unrealistic moments that I had curated. Cue the fake serenity face. . I still have those real yoga moments, I just haven’t been sharing them, because I’ve been putting so much pressure on myself to make every photo fantastic and telling myself you won’t like me if I’m just me without an epic background, perfect lighting, and a ton of editing. . Of course I don’t realistically practice yoga in cactus gardens or on stairways, but I do find the photos I created in these locations to be beautiful and visually interesting. I don’t regret creating or sharing them, if anything I just wish I hadn’t edited myself so heavily in them. 🤷‍♀️ . What I’m saying is I want to balance those shares of an idealized world, with a lot more shares of the real one, like this. So here’s a photo of me practicing yoga, on a yoga mat, in a yoga studio, rather than on a mountain top, in front of a waterfall, or at the edge of a cliff. . : @shanarehwald Extra comfy in my @aloyoga

I used to think my goal on this platform was to make you like me. Then I realized I had been doing it wrong. The days of doin’ it for the gram are ending, because I’m ready to step into doing this for me. My new goal is to make my shares here a practice in me liking me, and trust that the ones who are meant to, will agree. Like attracts like, right? . : @shanarehwald Rocking @aloyoga

To tell you the truth, my Instagram page has been feeling pretty inauthentic to me for awhile now. . Ever since it became the way I make my living, I feel as if I’ve slowly stopped sharing, or even discarded, lovable and unique parts of myself, in the hopes of being as marketable as possible. . Lately I haven’t been able to post, because I’m making authenticity one of my top priorities in 2019, and the captions I came up with and the photos I thought of sharing oscillated between feeling “not enough” and flat out fake. . Gypset Goddess and Caitlin Turner used to be the same person, but they aren’t anymore. They grew in different directions, and that’s ok. Pardon my writing in the third person, but get ready to have more Caitlin thrown in here. . For example, this photo was taken at sunrise in Joshua Tree and the temperature was below freezing. ️ . Before, I would have set my feelings and well-being aside, and made getting THE shot my top priority. I would have stripped down to leggings and a sports bra, been incredibly cold and physically uncomfortable while faking a face of serenity, and then shared it with you, accompanied by a caption that I felt uninspired to write, but still crafted for maximum inspiration and comment potential (but only after fixing all of the typos resulting from the fact that I couldn’t feel my thumbs while typing). . Nothing about that is real, and I’ve grown tired of upholding the fantasy. 🤷‍♀️ . Instead, here’s a photo of me wearing sweatpants and a real smile, and feeling warm enough to actually enjoy this sunrise. For me, a real smile beats a perfect yoga photo any day. . It may not get as many likes, but I’m actively making “doin it for the gram” and living for likes, things of my past. I always thought it would be scary to share the real me, but in fact, it’s incredibly liberating. . So, on that note, cheers to sweatpants, real smiles, and happier days ahead! . : @shanarehwald Feeling cozy in @aloyoga new spring line

Every new year, I consider writing down my goals and resolutions, but I never do, because I’ve been too afraid to commit and then potentially fail. . 2019 let’s go! I’m writing it all down this time, because I’m ready for my dreams to be my reality. I’m so tired of being my own worst enemy, and I’m ready to be my biggest champion! Side note: anyone know where I can track down this pen? I’m pretty sure it might have magical powers (and if not, I’ll trust in the placebo effect). . UPDATE: This pen is made by @l_aquart

There’s a scene in the movie Runaway Bride, where Richard Gere asks Julia Roberts how she likes her eggs. . He’s asking her, because he has realized that her answer was different with each of her ex-fiancés... it always matched theirs. . The truth is, she doesn’t know the answer, because she had gotten so good at saying the “right” answer for whomever she was with, that she hadn’t taken the time to listen to her inner voice in years. . He cooks her each of the types of eggs that she had previously said were her favorite, she tries them all, and for the first time in years, she is empowered to make a choice for herself, rather than trying to please anyone else. She figures out how SHE likes her eggs. Trust me, it’s powerful. . Lately, I feel like I may have forgotten how I like my metaphorical eggs. I’ve been too busy trying to say and be what I think others want or need from me, and I’ve been doing it for too long. ‍♀️ . 2019 is already showing me that it’s time for me to figure out how I like my eggs in every area of my life. I’m ready to be more vulnerable, be more honest, and tune into what I really want out of this life. . That was a big share in the form of a movie scene synopsis. Hope you feel me. . : @shanarehwald Rocking: @aloyoga

A little different than my usual posts, but a friend sent me this video and it made me feel so happy and full of hope that I just had to share. If I can even begin to exude the amount of good vibes in this video in 2019, I’ll consider it a successful year. . Now I’ll just leave this here to make your day a little (or a lot) brighter and remind you that 2019 is your year to shine! . : @donte.colley

I woke up this morning with a feeling of endless potential for the year ahead, and I needed it after feeling a little hopeless and lost many times during 2018. . Last night I was bemoaning to a friend that the older I get, and the more complicated life becomes, the less magical holidays, especially Christmas and New Years, start to feel. Well, that was last night. . Today, despite my pessimism, and much to my surprise, the world does actually feel magical, in a way that it hasn’t in years. I feel it again. It’s a new day, in a new year, and a beautiful reminder that today won’t always feel like yesterday, and this year won’t always feel like last year. It could be the same, better, or worse, but you never know until you wake up and get going the next day and the next year. 2019 I’m so ready for all of the growth, laughter, magic, challenges, tears (both happy and sad), love, learning, and everything else you’re going to put in my path. Let’s do this! . : @shanarehwald 🧥: @aloyoga

I wanted to share the biggest lesson I learned in 2018, but in the end I couldn’t decide on just one. So I narrowed it down to three: 1. I am capable of far more than I ever realized, and the biggest thing holding me back has been my own limiting beliefs of “I can’t” and/or “I don’t know how”, but the truth is, once I rise above my fears and try, all it takes is some effort and I can figure almost anything out. 2. The things that frustrate me in others truly are the things that I need to look at within myself (heard it a thousand times, but this year taught me it’s actually true) 3. Having an organized environment is essential for my peace of mind, creativity, and productivity. When friends commented on the general disarray of my home, I used to say I just had my own systems of organization and knew where everything was, but the truth is I was just being messy and could never find anything. Life is sweeter when the home is cleaner. What’s the biggest lesson you learned in 2018? . : @shanarehwald Rocking: @aloyoga

I get a lot of comments asking how to start practicing yoga. 🧘‍♀️ . My go-to answer used to be “pick a class at your local studio that sounds fun, and try it out!” . But I hear you, it’s not always that easy for a lot of reasons: there isn’t a studio in your area, you’re afraid you’ll feel embarrassed or lost, or maybe the classes at the studio near you are too expensive. These are all totally valid concerns. . Now I have a new answer, and it addresses all of these concerns: sign up for @alo.moves! . You can try tons of different classes (including 2 from me!), at a variety of levels, with amazing teachers, and you can do all of it from the comfort of your own home (or anywhere!). . A lot of the studios around me charge $20/class, and that definitely adds up quickly. Luckily, just in time for your New Years resolution to start practicing yoga, @alo.moves is offering 30% off an annual membership (which means only $12/month!). . If finding a consistent yoga practice is on your 2019 agenda, this is an awesome (and cost-effective) way to jumpstart your journey. Link to my classes is in my bio!

What is one thing that brought you joy today? I’ve been asking myself that question every night for the last few weeks, and I’ve begun to notice certain patterns. One of them is, that there is a certain kind of cotton candy sunset, that has the ability to momentarily make me forget any fears and stresses, and simply replace them with joy and awe. ️ . When it’s especially beautiful, I call a friend, and tell them to go outside, then I stay on the phone until they do, so we can enjoy the sunset splendor together. Even though I’m inspired by everything I’m working on with my new job, I’ve been struggling with adjusting to life often feeling like all work and no play lately. I’m learning that a successful work-life balance is actually something you need to work at, and I’m not very good at it yet. Kudos to those of you who have mastered it! 🤯 I miss my free time and my friends a lot, so I’m extra grateful for these shared sunsets, even if it’s only a few minutes by phone. . The calls bring me as much joy as the sunset, and no matter how tired or stressed I am, I’m reminded each time I see the sky and pick up my phone, that I’m really grateful too. . : @dancampbelllloyd

The idea of connecting openly and deeply with strangers sometimes gives me a lot of anxiety. 🤷‍♀️ . As I worked with my teammates @findtap to plan last nights Tap x @baumewatches event, I knew that the night was based around @magicofhumanconnection, and it had me feeling a little nervous. . I knew I was probably in for some intense eye-gazing (and awkwardness usually for me lol), and that alone had me kinda jittery. . As I often am in cases like this, I’m so grateful that I pushed through my resistance and immersed myself fully in acknowledging and connecting with a few of my old friends, and so many new ones as of last night. It turned out to be a magical experience! . My biggest takeaway is this: people want to feel seen and want to connect, but society teaches us to avoid these more profound connections with acquaintances/strangers, in favor of more shallow interactions. Resist the temptation and dive in. Dive deep, and you’ll be rewarded. . Grateful to @eatingwithmax for preparing an epic zero-waste vegan dinner, and to everyone who came out to our event last night. . It was so inspiring to see so many like-minded digital and real-world water warriors #makingtime for connection and change. . Nights like these remind me that: individually, we are each powerful forces, but together, we can impact the whole world! . : @laurenlemon Location: @kimsingtheatre

When I was trying to figure out how to style this fanny pack, it seemed self-explanatory...until @shanarehwald suggested I wear it like a cross-body bag. At first I legit thought she was messing with me. 🤷‍♀️ Seriously? A fanny pack as a purse? Why wouldn’t you just carry a purse then? This doesn’t make sense. Are you f*cking with me? 🤯 Turns out, despite me being completely unaware, this trend is a real thing. Goes to show how up on trends I am. I live a life where trends inform me, but they don’t define me. That being said, I’m game for trying, just about, anything before making a judgment...so I stuck my arm and head through, and rocked this baby like a purse for a couple hours. I’m smiling so big in this photo, because I couldn’t stop laughing. There are awesome women out there who can pull off this trend and make it their own, but it turns out, I’m not one of them. 🤷‍♀️ . Worth a try though, because why not? I like being pleasantly surprised, when I’m doubting something, but in the end, it looks like I’ll be rocking this little @aloyoga fanny pack as it was intended from now on. Comment and share a fashion trend you think is funny, or that you tried and realized wasn’t right for you. 🧢 . : @shanarehwald Top, jacket: @aloyoga

As a yogi, I thought I was practicing living a conscious life, until I realized that every plastic water bottle I bought at studios, to stay hydrated, still exists today. Considering the number of yoga classes I’ve taken in my life, that’s A LOT of bottles. I truly wish I had started bringing my own bottle years ago, but I’m grateful that at least my eyes are open now. Did you know that a lot of yoga studios rely on plastic water bottle sales for a substantial part of their monthly income? They can’t stop selling them, because we all keep buying them. Kinda crazy when you really think about it. I bet if those bottles weren’t actually selling, the studios would quit stocking them. Hmmmm... That’s how it works: we vote with our dollar. As conscious consumers, when we come together and combine the power of all of our dollars, we actually have A LOT of power. Switching to a reusable bottle is a simple change that saves you money, gives you the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes with good karma, and truly makes a world of difference. . When plastic water bottles stop selling, beverage brands will be forced to adapt, and imagine what that could mean for our oceans and our environment! I try to practice what I preach, so when @findtap challenged me to be the change, I stepped up. . I pledge to continue to #drinkdifferent for another 30 days (and life!) by not buying any single-use water bottles and always bringing my own reusable bottle instead. @ariannahuff, @dovecameron, & @jessewelle, I challenge you to #drinkdifferent! Each person who pledges = 16 bottles saved from our oceans or a landfill (on average). . TAG @findtap #drinkdifferent so we can track our progress! Together we can create a tidal wave of change, and shift the current trajectory of our planet! Be the change. Drink different. . : @justinbastien

I don’t know about you, but as much as I love the holidays, this time of year stresses me out. 🤯 . With the final countdown to the end of the year, all of a sudden becoming smaller numbers, everything starts to feel that much more urgent for me. . That’s when I need to slow down and take time for myself the most, except time is a pretty limited resource right now. 🤷‍♀️ . Lucky for me, and you, if you’re feeling like I do this time of year, @alo.moves just shared my entire 20 min. Feel Good Energy Flow class on their IGTV. 🧘‍♀️ . After waking up feeling anxious this morning, I practiced the class and got exactly what I needed: time to tune out of my stresses and tune into my body, and time to breathe through my stresses and let some physical tension go. ‍♀️ . Sound good? Same here. . Head over and give it whirl, then come back here and let me know how it made you feel. . Hope it has as much of a positive impact on your day, as it has on mine! . : @dancampbelllloyd Wearing: @aloyoga

I forgot, but am now remembering, that being a beginner at something is never easy. In fact, sometimes it’s really hard. . Even beginners luck tends to falter after a while, and then you’re left with the challenges that come with trying something new. . Lately it feels like my whole world is filled with beginners’ challenges. I’m running into metaphorical walls I didn’t realize were there, and it hurts each time, but at least I’ll remember where they are next time. . Sometimes it feels like it’s all too much, too far from my former status quo. . When these feelings arise, I feel a serious temptation to give up and retreat back to my comfort zone, where I am an expert at living my own life and I get to make all of the decisions. . But then I remember that challenges, and overcoming them, are what made me as strong as I find myself today. I’ve done it before, survived, and I can do it again. So can you. ️ . There will come a day, when you’ll stop feeling like a beginner, and in that moment, you’ll realize your comfort zone just grew. Then, if you want to keep growing, you’ll have to step out of it once again, so this is good practice.... . That’s what I keep telling myself. Sometimes I believe it. 🤷‍♀️ . In the meantime I keep going, because I’ve got this. And, trust me, so do you. . : @shanarehwald Wearing: @aloyoga

My life has changed fairly drastically as of late, and perhaps the most important lesson I’ve learned through it all, is this: Sometimes life doesn’t give you what you want, not because you don’t deserve it, but because you deserve more. . It’s hard for me to trust the process, let alone surrender, because the truth is, I am a lover, but I’m also a fighter—especially when I feel strongly about something. . As much as I practice going with the flow, I still constantly find myself white-knuckling the reins and futilely trying to control different people and parts of my life—without realizing that the feeling of control is often only an illusion, and I never even had any in the first place. 🤷‍♀️ . All the better this way anyway. It’s in the moments, when I’m reminded that I can’t control, but must trust, that I find myself growing the most. . If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I’d be today, my answer would never have been where I am now. Most things would have been different, but that’s not how they happened. 🤷‍♀️ . Yet as I write this, I find myself living a life I had never expected, feeling passionate about the environment in ways I never have before, working harder than I’ve ever worked before (@findtap), but also enjoying my life more than I have in a long time. . Plans for your life are only just that: plans...and I’m learning not to be so attached to how I think my life should or will look in the future. . Here’s to trust. Here’s to holding the reins a little more loosely, and focusing on enjoying the ride instead. . Do you go with the flow? Or do you white-knuckle the reins like me? . : @shanarehwald Wearing: @aloyoga
