'Now I know the meaning of true love. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it. I believe I can soar.' - Songwriter, P. Bady πŸš€ I heard this song more than a million times, But today, it struck a different chord in my heart and soul as I listened to Percy Bady, it's songwriter, sing it live in church. While I sat there next to people I love the most listening to the lyrics, I'm reminded that we're granted the power to break down impediments that holds us back to our dreams and true potentials. Today, I'm reminded to guide my kids to find that courage within themselves to take life's leaps of faith. Have a beautiful weekend 🌝 Sun is shining here in Chicago! #yoga #inspiration #acroyoga

Feed your wanderlust. Explore paths less traveled. ‘Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.’ -Mark Twain. #adventure #wanderlust #explore #dream #discover #marktwain

"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different." - Chanel. There is no one like you. We are all different in many beautiful ways. Embrace and love your uniqueness 🌷 #paintedyoga #paintbyyoga #yoga #celebrate

We are all students in this practice. Celebrate where you are. Life is already tough to navigate. Our practice should provide refuge instead of frustrations. Be gentle to yourself, as you are to others. 🌺 My yoga practice is a dance, stepping forward with every milestone and striding back when I need to pause and revisit basic steps. For example, just when I thought I’ve opened my hips enough and stretched my hamstrings to get into full split poses, my calves and hamstrings get really tight after martial arts and running. I know then it’s time to practice poses solely for recovery and injury prevention, not to get back trying to achieve the poses before that. Giving my body enough time to heal and recover - practicing compassion to myself. Good night, friends…wherever you are. πŸŒ™πŸŒβ­οΈ #yoga #yogaposes #martialarts #taekwondo #running #paintedyoga #splits #balance #balancingpose #dailypractice #asana #compassion

"The first demand any work of art makes upon us is surrender. Look. Listen. Receive. Get yourself out of the way. (There is no good asking first whether the work before you deserves such a surrender, for until you have surrendered you cannot possibly find out.)" - CS Lewis.
