Happy podcast day everyone️ In today’s episode I talk about death. Death, fear of death, overcoming adversity, trauma, pain... All the truly hard stuff. I share what was the hardest year of my life with the passing of my best friend, my grandmother and my dog all within the course of five months, and how when it comes to trauma, healing is not a linear thing. It’s normal - necessary even - to shut down and shut off in the midst of loss; it’s how we survive. And somehow we move on and we get through it and inevitably, we’ll be presented with opportunities to return to the wound. I’m in it now. It’s been four years... But I couldn’t do it then. Doing it now is super hard because I’m in the midst of so much life and joy - but maybe that’s the only way. To have something truly beautiful to balance out the pain. .

Sitting down in silence at the end of the day . to realize I don’t know what to do with all the quiet. . . My heart is much too lively to be still. . . . Working through a lot these days. Giving myself permission to move all the time. To make plans and abandon them right away. To work hard. To mother hard. To be with my husband. To drink the wine. To cut to the chase. To pick something up and then lose interest and try again. I’m all over the place. Allowing it. Me. Recording the podcast yesterday I realized; I’m writing a book about death. Is that why I’m so obsessed with the idea of it lately? Not so strange after all. . Turning my phone off now (which is hard, because the baby monitor app is on my phone and I like to look at Little Moon as she sleeps). Tuning out and tuning in. Quality time with Ram Dass and my yoga mat. Reading Be Here Now for the 100th time. So good. Loving you. x .

Side-kick 4 life️ . . I was so scared of motherhood before it actually came my way. I was scared to fuck up. To not be enough. To pass on my unsolved pain to her. Scared of so many things. Most of all... Scared to lose her. I still am. Every day. I asked a friend who has grown children the other day; if the overwhelming fear of losing her will ever fully settle. She was surprised; “oh, I never had that. I always felt a lot of trust. But you know, whatever you still have to deal with, whatever still needs healing, your children will bring to surface for you.” . So I’ve been thinking. Maybe it’s not just motherhood - that this is what it is. Maybe I feel it more intensely because it’s what’s already within me, it’s unsolved, not yet healed. My fear of loss. Maybe when your stepdad and your grandparents and your best friend and your dog all die and your mom spends the bigger part of your childhood not wanting to live it sets you up for this. Every time Luna takes a nap I wonder to myself if this is the nap she’ll never wake up from. But she always wakes up. I shake the thought and carry on and she always wakes up. . I had my future read once by a woman who told me I would have a baby girl that would die, and then two boys. This was the year before everybody died. I think about that reading and I wonder - does that woman know what she did to my peace of mind? A part of me thinks, if she knew so much, why couldn’t she have told me that my best friend was going to crash her car and die two months later. Or that my grandmother would pass three months after that. Or my dog, my baby, three weeks after that. And that my mom would try to commit suicide again four months later. Why couldn’t she have predicted any of that? Instead she just planted this idea in my brain that in its turn became a fear so intense some days I don’t know how to live with it. . I don’t know. I’ve never told anyone about that reading because I was so scared it would become true. But I call bullshit. I think Luna is here to help me heal, by just being who she is. By being here. By my side. And safe. Every day. #motherhood

Facebook gave me a memory from 5 years ago today (swipe left to see it️). It’s me in our old house on the little yoga deck @dennisfromsalad built me in the garden underneath our mango tree. I’m in an advanced yoga pose and I make it look so easy. Looking at the memory I scoff - “those were the days! Look at what my body could do!”. I was practicing hours of yoga every day and taught 23 classes a week at the time. My entire life was yoga. I had just started this Instagram account and every day after my practice I’d lean my phone up against a rock, put it on self timer and take photos of myself in poses. I would post something new every day and from my little yoga deck in my backyard, I watched this community grow. . Today, writing this, my life looks vastly different. I’m older. I spent the bigger part of three straight years traveling the world teaching yoga. Eventually, my body couldn’t take it. I grew tired of living on the road. Decided to set roots. Got pregnant. Opened a yoga studio. Birthed a baby. My yoga practice is... Not what it was. Today, it was four poses on my mat in the living room while wriggling an 11-month old who thinks it’s hilarious to run at me as fast as she can with complete disregard for any obstacles in her way (ie dogs and furniture) My yoga deck has grown but I have never, not once had a real practice on it (11-month olds and pools don’t quite go hand in hand). I still practice every day but I don’t practice the poses I once used to - there are no funky pincha mayurasanas in sight. I do yoga to stay sane and free from pain. It’s as simple as that. And I take very few photos of my practice because I don’t have the time anymore, and I find that the most inspirational things I can share have more to do with heart and soul than poses and body. So today when I told Dennis to take a photo of me attempting this pose... I meant it as a joke! Like “look what this crap looks like now”. BUT WHAT DO YOU KNOW PEOPLE! This momma’s still got it! It wasn’t even hard. Makes me wonder if I just naturally am able to do stuff like this or if some poses show up one day and are there to stay. Maybe... Some things just do stay the same #yoga

Sometimes the only choice we are left with is to let go. To surrender and release control. Let go. Let go. Let go. Stop resisting and allow the dust and the murkiness of your past to be stirred to the surface before it can settle. Sadness will come and that's ok. Pain will come and that's ok. Despair will come and that's ok. It's all ok because in the empty space that follows... Trust will start to grow. Love will set it's roots within you. Joy will blossom. So feel it all. Let. It. Be. This is the process of healing. It's the only way - to let it out and let it in. You might not know it but the seeds of the most miraculous parts of your life are being planted right here, right now. In this. One day they are going to sprout. And everything is going to be okay again. . . . #garden #tendtoyourpain #trust #breathe #heal #live #life #love #believe #letto #letitbe #practice #yoga #yogagirl #pray #prayer #yogaeverydamnday

When you’re making home made vegan meatball subs and it requires using your Vitamix but your baby is sleeping so you prepare it in your bedroom and it’s sort of like camping but also not at all . . THIS SHIT IS SO GOOD THOUGH! Putting the recipe in my IG story. Basically you make veggie meatballs and cook them in marinara sauce and put them in a sub with some lettuce and veggie parmesan and life is made🥖🥫 x #plantbased #vegan #veggie #cooking #foodprep #bedroomcooking #healthy #weird #parenthood

We’re ok. Thank you everyone️ Our first ever hospital visit and I hope I never again have to race to the ER in my pajamas with a baby in my arms that can barely hold up her own head Her ear infection is back (or never really went away - and we’ve been swimming! Ugh) and last night she had insane fever spikes that just wouldn’t go down (we took a cold bath, paracetamol, everything). At 104.5 I freaked out and we went in. I’m glad we went but in the end, they didn’t do much. We slept in the waiting room and played with a stethoscope and eventually got to go home. Very sweet doctors calming a very panicked first time mom though. And now she’s acting like she’s never felt better in her life! I think it’s the post-fever high We will use earplugs when swimming after she’s all healed and well again and I’ll have to be super careful with her ears in the water from now on. Little angel. She’s very happy today. Still feverish but happy. And I keep thinking about all the parents out there that are dealing with actual long-term illness There are babies with all sorts of serious illnesses out there that I can’t even think about. Sending love to every mom and dad worrying about the wellbeing of their child right now. You are fierce as FUCK. Parenthood is no joke. This love is no joke. The fear... I can’t even go there. Loving you all and thanks for the well wishes️ #lealuna #11months #motherhood

Hospital nights 104.5F Fever (40.4C) and it just kept going up. It’s 2am. Been here three hours. Drove here with my heart in my throat - she was completely lethargic and didn’t even cry or say a thing. Now she’s better. But this shit is so scary. We just want to go home #emergencyroom #parenthood #lealuna #angel

Happy Friday and happy Podcast Day!!! In todays episode I talk about social media marketing, big yoga corporations, influencers and staying authentic in the online world. I share my social media triggers and things that drive me up the wall (companies pretending to do good, influencers faking vulnerability, people portraying yoga as exclusively for the thin, flexible person.... The list is LONG) I get into my own reasoning behind choosing not to use my Instagram account as a marketing platform, dreams of being able to create new forms of transparent marketing to do good (#GoodKarmaMarketing anyone???), wanting to inspire other influencers to use their influence for good and more. Listen in now! Link in bio or search From The Heart or Yoga Girl Podcast on iTunes or anywhere you normally get your podcasts️ Enjoy!!! (and if we are debating - do it in the comment section!!!) #FromTheHeart #YogaGirlPodcast #podcast #podcasts #yogagirl #influencer #socialmedia #marketing #authenticity #truth #vulnerability #life

MY VALENTINES!!! . These photos crack me up - I can’t believe we are ALREADY these kinds of parents! She’s 11 months old and we’re already getting on her nerves and embarrassing her in public. Just the way it’s supposed to be . . PS - screw the commercial Valentine’s Day noise! Go outside. Take a yoga class. Sit in silence. Do what makes you happy! Love on yourself. Love on your loved ones. Alone and together.

Can we all just return to being naked all the time️ A part of me wants to go live in the jungle somewhere and walk barefoot in the dirt and completely retire and never send an email or hold a smartphone ever again and be naked always naked and do nothing for the rest of my life other than eat mangoes and swim in the ocean and raise this little moon baby like the earth fairy she is BUT then I remember: I’m here to change the world. And to do that you have to kick ass and work your butt off and send the emails and use the smartphones and take the meetings and make the money and continue creating. So I’ll stay here - writing, working, working. With moon baby naked in the garden but fully clothed in public (mostly). Our mangos are from the grocery store and the WiFi connection is strong but the ocean is right here. Balance. It’s what it’s all about #moonbaby #earth #naked #pachamama #hippieatheart #entrepreneurinlife #YogaGirl #love

Besties! . He loves her so much. She loves him so much. Their friendship is the best. They spend a lot of time in his bed, chewing their collective toys (there is no differentiation between dog toys and baby toys in this house anymore). She is really gentle with him but even when she isn’t he is always gentle back. She feeds him from the table and he licks all the food off her cheeks I love them both so much!

Step away for a moment and look at the big picture. Notice all the things that are going well, that are running smoothly? Focus on them. Put more energy into order than you do chaos. Shine your light on what you want more of in life instead of getting swallowed up by the small stuff. All is well. Everything is fine. You have so much to be grateful for already. . . . #remindertoself #focusonthegood #gratitude #blessings #nightsky #cacti #aruba #island #sunset #sky #evening #sun #nature #motherearth #manifest #create #dream #believe #meditate #inspire #inspiration #work #love #life #thankful #yoga #yogagirl #yogaeverydamnday

IT’S PODCAST DAY!!! . In today’s episode I’m joined by the hubs @dennisfromsalad (who’s now a steady guest once a month due to popular demand!)! We start off talking about germs and OCD - I’ve found myself increasingly nervous by germs since becoming a mom while Dennis is the same old slob and truly couldn’t care less We then talk about a recent fight (errr fights) we had and how we process in two completely different ways - he shuts down and does his processing in silence and I want to talk and vent and share. I don’t know why people asked us questions about this because we are CLEARLY not experts here We transition into the topic of makeup, the meaning of life, being happy as a hippo and then get into the #MeToo movement. Aaaaaand then, somehow, Dennis tells the world the story of or first night together I cant believe we didn’t edit anything out buuut I guess this is just how we roll now!!! (does anyone remember the days of Dennis refusing to speak on Snapchat? Those days are long gone!) I laugh out loud into the mic so many times in this episode and Dennis sarcasm reaches brand new levels so hopefully we don’t offend anyone too badly. Hehe. ENJOY!

Believe in your own ability to create magic . . . Tonight I’m feeling inspired by @dennisfromsalad ️ He decided to pick up a camera one day and is now fully immersing himself in learning something brand new. The other night he asked me to sit in the middle of the bed holding a jar of string lights... and I thought he was nuts But then this dreamy little shot happened! With Ringo giving the stink eye! So cute. My point is - if it’s tugging on your heart, give it a try! Learn as you go. Experiment along the way. Don’t be afraid to fail. Believe in your ability to capture light and make actual magic happen . . . #dreamalittledream #magic #experiment #light #lightinajar #nighttime #bed #bedtime #rituals #evening #peaceful #peace #color #photography #dream #dreams #manifest #magical #believe #trust #breathe #practice #rest #relax #restore #love

Spent the day at Aruba’s only fresh water spring... Dreaming about one day opening an eco retreat center here. It’s so beautiful. In the middle of the national park. Miles from everything. No cell service. Right on the ocean but in the middle of nowhere. There is an ancient house on the property with beautiful hand-painted tiles in every room. And the spring! The spring! It’s magical. Grape vines all around and little fishies that nibble on your feet. And turtles! And goats roaming! I love it here. If anyone out there is casually sitting on a couple million dollars that you want to give away...

Shot all day. Wore crystals in my hair. Had my face painted. Hiked down a mountain. Drank a questionable coconut. Illegally climbed a fire escape attached to the side of the police station. Wore flowy dress and hippie pants and high heels and walked barefoot and smiled and was serious and took all of the photos. Came home. Walked the dogs. And recorded the most inappropriate podcast ever (@dennisfromsalad just keeps getting funnier and also more politically incorrect for ever episode we do). Put baby to bed. About to whip up some veggie tacos. AND DRINK ME SOME WINE A day in a life of...
