Still not over this moon🥰 ⁣ Taught full moon yoga on the beach last night and using her as a reference point is just the most beautiful thing. “Inhale to reach your right arm toward the moon... Exhale and drop your knees toward the ocean...” 🧘‍♀️ Practicing under the stars in the sand is pure magic! ⁣ ⁣ Join me, Dennis and Lea Luna on the beach and in the jungle next month! We’ll be in Costa Rica for a retreat February 23-27 followed by @envisionfestival - yoga, beach meditations, a cacao ceremony, service project, heart-expanding intention setting, journaling, sharing... I can’t wait to be back in my second home. Email info@yogagirl.com or click the link in my bio for more info

I’m smiling here bc mimosas but actually I just finished a triathlon and it was the worst! We got up at 5am and I did all the things and at the end of it I had a realization. The thing about being a triathlete is you have to SWIM and BIKE and RUN! And I don’t like any of those things🤷‍♀️ Soooo I think I’ll just go back to yoga and brunch ok @dennisfromsalad cool thx

I was having a stressful evening the other day with a messy house and a to-do list I didn’t get to and when I stress, I move quickly. It was time to get her ready for bed and we’re putting on pajamas and brushing our teeth and putting away toys and when it was time to read her goodnight story she climbed up in my lap, put her hands on my heart and looked me in the eyes. The sudden shift of energy pulled me out of my frenzy.⁣ ⁣ “Mamma. Vila. Vila Mamma.” - she says.⁣ (Mommy rest. Rest, mommy) ⁣ ⁣ ...and then she put her little head on my chest. For the longest time, we just laid there. She’s 22 months old - she hasn’t been still for over a year. She’s constantly in motion, running, exploring, playing - she can’t even sit still to eat a full meal. But we stayed like that; her head resting against my heart until time felt like it stood still. After 15 minutes or so I was convinced she was asleep but she wasn’t; I could feel her eyelashes batting against my skin. It was almost like she was listening to my heartbeat, waiting for it to slow down. ⁣ ⁣ Suddenly she sat up and looked at me. ⁣ “Sova nu. Natt natt.”⁣ (Sleep now. Night-night.)⁣ ⁣ So I put her to bed and kissed her forehead and walked outside and again, all of life was peaceful.⁣ ⁣ Sometimes I look at her and I swear, she winks at me. Where in the world did she even come from?⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣

“Best friends.” ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ She took one look at @supermodelmomma1 baby girl Layla and immediately declared; “best friend”. Best friend. She held her hand all night. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ When you feel like the world is a gloomy place... Find a child and watch them love

#10yearschallenge - this is so wild! Exactly 10 years ago I was... Younger The photo on the left is from a Phish show in Chicago I went to with a friend and a bunch of people I barely knew. I’d scraped together money for the trip and slept on someone’s couch and the show was one of the most amazing experiences I’d ever had. By the end of it I’d decided I was going to be a Phishhead and follow them around forever and had already climbed into some Hawaiian guys car to road trip to the next show when my friend stopped me (I don’t know what was in the brownies I ate but they were delicious!)⁣ ⁣ I hadn’t met Dennis yet and was still living in Costa Rica, waitressing and bartending to make ends meet. I had absolute zero fear of anything ever going wrong and I always said yes to everything. Ayahuasca on a whim with complete strangers in the jungle? Yes. Live in a commune without running water or electricity? Yes. Run off to Nicaragua with a reggae band without my passport? Yes. I was wild. I never had any money but somehow everything always worked out. I traveled, practiced yoga, surfed, drank tequila and made friends everywhere I went. I didn’t have a savings account, or a steady job, or a phone for that matter. I was happy - and clueless. Life was awesome... But I was also faking it. I look confident as hell but on the inside I was terrified. I had a past full of unresolved pain I didn’t want to deal with and was so terrified of commitment I’d run for the hills whenever I felt stagnant or whenever the guy I happened to be dating told me he loved me. ⁣ ⁣ I look at this photo of myself and I feel nostalgic; happy-sad. She doesn’t know it but this girl has some serious love, and some serious pain, coming her way. And so much hurt in her past it’s weighing her down to the point of self-sabotaging everything good and steady in her life. ⁣ ⁣ In 2009 I was happy... But I was a mess. ⁣ ⁣ Now, the picture on the right? My mom took it this morning. ⁣It’s 2019. ⁣ It needs no explanation. ⁣ ️🥰 #2009vs2019 #thankyou

⁣ ⁣ This photo looks cute and all but we are literally in the middle of the craziest toddler battles ever. We’ve officially arrived at the age where we’re not allowed to help her with ANYTHING - but she still doesn’t know how to do everything on her own. Putting on her shoes, taking off clothes, preparing food... Every moment is an opportunity to lie down on the floor and scream also, she is the boss of me right now (or trying hard to be). She goes “NO NO NO MAMMA!” and pushes me if I’m sitting five inches too far to the left of the couch for her liking. Oh and if I try to do yoga she throws a tantrum. Fun times galore! Luckily she’s so goddamn cute and cuddly at the same time and everything is still manageable. We’re walking the fine line of setting boundaries and letting her feel her all of her feelings. I’m⁣ good at staying patient and try to listen and just be present with her while explaining what’s going on. Getting dressed is hard! Brushing your teeth sucks! For most of it, I feel her⁣ ⁣ Parents with kids of a similar age as Luna... Do you have any tips for dealing with major tantrums (ones that seem to never end?) - and is it common for one parent to have a harder time? For some reason with me she won’t accept that she can’t always have her way but with Dennis she gets over it much quicker. Would love to hear about your experience!⁣ ⁣ (don’t go all internet on me over the straw, we try our best but sometimes we forget)🤷‍♀️ #life

Feeling fabulous as FUCK! Took this photo on self timer like an idiot while waiting for @orothschild to come back from the spa. We are having the most amazing time. I keep forgetting to take photos! Took this trip for no reason other than missing each other. Loving thousands of miles part from your bestie is hard so you gotta jump on every chance to hang out you get! So far we’ve had every meal at killer vegan restaurants, gone to a late-night comedy show, had a psychic reading, walked around Central Park, shopped a little, had a spa day at and literally just had the most incredible time. Now we are off to The Plaza for vegan high tea (what!), then getting our makeup done (what!) and then going to some crazy interactive theater show in a scary hotel(?!). IT’S THE BEST NYC TRIP EVER. With the best friend ever. I’m so lucky. Podcast on friendship coming this Friday! Now, go tell your bestie you love them. x #girlstrip #treatyourself #LOVE

I slept on the floor of a sad, sad toddlers room. Every few minutes she would stand up and look for me. ⁣ “Mamma?”⁣ “Yes?”⁣ “Sitta där, mamma” (sit there, mommy)⁣ ”Jag sitter här älskling” (I’m right here baby)⁣ “Hålla handen” (hold my hand)⁣ ⁣ 20 minutes later: ⁣ “Mamma?”⁣ ⁣ And so the night went. I spent most of it like that. Lying on the floor, holding her little hand through the railing of the crib. Listening to her breathing. I don’t know why she was so sad and if she had nightmares or what it was. I just know I love her so fucking much. I would spent every night for the rest of my life on a cold, hard floor if it helps her feel safe. ⁣ ⁣ This morning I am feeling sore and raw and grateful and vulnerable and totally in love. It’s the first day back at day care and she just left with daddy, dragging her little backpack behind her. ⁣ “Bye bye mamma!” she says. “I love you. See you soon.” She says I love you without the v and emphasizes the SOON of the see you soon and every word out of her mouth makes my heart expand out of my chest. Yesterday she said “Amazing” and I swear, I almost fainted right there.⁣ ⁣ Motherhood. Amazing, indeed.⁣

I didn’t know what the hell I was doing in 2018. Never had a year of doubting myself so much. At the same time, so much was unbelievably beautiful. In 2019 I plan to spend as much time as possible with this girl. I’m going to grow our businesses while working LESS. You heard that right! Its an experiment. I’m going to work less. Or at least, work smarter. This year I’m a “stay at home mom”. Meaning, I stay home, and run our businesses from there. Meaning, daddy goes to work. Meaning, we play and eat and cuddle and throw tantrums (plenty of those rn) and draw and have fun and when she naps, I put on my boss hat. We’ve had 3 weeks of it and so far, so good. But for a whole year? While leading 20 weeks of retreats and teacher trainings? I don’t know how its going to work. Time will tell. All I know is this year, I’m mom first. CEO second. Mom first - everything second. Come at me, life! I’m so ready️ #2019 #letsgo !!!

Officially the craziest Christmas gift I’ve ever given my husband (aside from that time I gifted him a baby goat) @dennisfromsalad spent three straight months “hinting” (read: nagging) that he wanted these recovery boots to help with his endurance training... Turns out they work for yoga too! Like every first day of the year, I did 108 sun salutations yesterday and definitely feeling it in my body today. Thanks @ntrecovery for helping me make Dennis the happiest ever. And yes, the amount of crazy Iron Man gadgets we have lying around the house now is insane. I haven’t even started training yet Need someone to motivate me! Ping @orothschild @katrina_pops @courtneybetts @mignonne3 @ambrevandeberg @jessicarydh !!! And coach @dennisfromsalad ! Anyone else looking to get way out of your comfort zone and do a half iron man this year? Comment below! #pathtoironlove #HELPME #nightmare #ironmanvsyogagirl

We are kicking off this year with a BANG! After hundreds of resumes and interviews @yogagirlfoundation just made its first hire!!🥳 We are now officially fully up and running⁣ ⁣ Starting this foundation has been a culmination of so much love, intention and hard work and I am so excited to have our first mission underway. We are kicking off 2019 with a bang! ⁣ ⁣ The Yoga Girl Foundation supports women and children who have suffered through trauma, injustice, abuse and poverty. We aim to provide emotional, financial and medical aid to support healing and empower growth and our first mission is right here in Aruba where we are utilizing all our efforts as a community to fight child abuse, an issue far more prevalent and devastating on this island than we ever could have imagined. It’s a heart wrenching cause to dive into but we are filled with motivation and hope. We hope you are too! Now - follow @yogagirlfoundation here on Instagram for daily updates! And please welcome our new project manager Luz to the team. If you want to support us locally (as of now we cannot take international volunteers), email info@yogagirlfoundation.com. ⁣ ⁣ Now...

Happy birthday @island.yoga !!! Our studio is 2 years old today! This first photo was from our opening day January 1, 2017. I was 7 months pregnant and @orothschild had a secret bun in the oven and Dennis and I had spent the past year moving mountains to get the studio built. Look at the before and after pictures! Sometimes I forget about the energy I’ve poured into my dreams. Creating the vortex of love that is this studio took more effort than anything I’ve ever done... And now, here we are. Thousands of people have passed through our doors over the past two years; classes, workshops, retreats, teacher trainings... So many intentions set, friendships made. So much healing found. Celebrating anniversaries and milestones is so important! Thank you, everyone for practicing with us. For believing in us. In me. Come visit us this year! Come practice. Would love to see you in the Luna Shala. x #islandyoga #yogagirl #community
