Last day of #hea#heartsopenforyoga ! Today’s bonus pose is #downwardfacingdog 🐶 - I focused more on drawing my heart towards my thighs rather than getting my heels down, and it just felt so goooood on my shoulders and back! 🤪 🙏🏽 This challenge was a great way to get into November, and it’s been so fun seeing variations of these poses throughout IG 😊 Til the next one! ✌🏽 #santoshayogaandwellness #heartsopenforyoga #adhomukhashvanasana #november #yoga #yogachallenge #sandiegoyoga #northparksd #yogainspiration #heartopeners #instayoga #stopdropandyoga #sdy #practicemakesprogress #practiceandalliscoming #yogaforeverybody #yogateacher #yogaeverydamnday #findyourtribe

Day 12 of #hea#heartsopenforyoga is #scorpionpose - sooo after a couple attempts at a forearm stand and totally wiping out on the shelf on the left, I’ll leave you with a headstand for today.

Day 4 of #hea#heartsopenforyoga is #wheelpose - sometimes I take #asana photos and think of how I can tweak or improve my posture. After a few moments of insecurity, I remember the namesake of my yoga service: santosha: practicing contentment in any given moment, ESPECIALLY those moments of self-doubt. Can I improve in my wheel and walk my hands farther in? Sure. Am I happy and grateful to have a healthy body in which to practice this beautiful pose? Hell yeah! Contentment. Practice it daily, my friends. 🔘 Join me tomorrow for Day 5: king cobra! 🔘 #santoshayogaandwellness #heartsopenforyoga #urdhvadanurasana #november #yoga #santoshayogaymeditación #yamas #niyamas #yogachallenge #sandiegoyoga #northparksd #yogainspiration #heartopeners #instayoga #practicemakesprogress #practiceandalliscoming #yogaforeverybody #yogateacher #yogaeverydamnday #findyourtribe

Join me this Saturday for a flow to rid yourself of the week!! ✨8:45-9:45am in the Forest Room at @pilgrimageyoga in North Park on 30th Street across from @younghickorysd ✨Speaking of Young Hickory, let’s grab a coffee and breakfast after yoga! ☕️🍩😉 (The Lox Bagel is my favorite in SD!) ✨This is a community class, so you don’t need to be a member of the studio to join! The class is donation-based, meaning you’ll drop some cash in the little basket/jar at the front desk when you arrive. ✨I believe that yoga is for every body - this is why I teach all-levels classes. Wherever you are right now in your practice, whether you’ve never practiced yoga or practice every day, I’ll offer a modification, option or challenge for you! Join me and connect with your body! 💖 . 📷: @gimmenoise . #santoshayogaandwellness #yog#yogaforeverybody #pilgrimageyoga #younghickorysd #northparksd #san#sandiego #normalheights #universityheights #southparksandiego #sandiego #yoga #yogainspiration #catarunga #chatarunga #findyourtribe #findyourzen #yogaeverydamnday

The director at the school where I teach shared this quote with us today during staff development, and it’s been rolling around in my mind all day. 🤔 My interpretation is that we’re all human, and sometimes we let our failures eat at us. Remember to give yourself some grace and know that all challenges carry a lesson. 💞 What is your interpretation of this quote? Comment below to share! 🙋🏼 #santoshayogaandwellness #gretchenrubin #lifelessons #dailyinspiration #sandiegoyoga #northparksd #yogainspiration #yogaeverydamnday
