The women I accept into the Amba Movement teacher training are a special breed of woman: They have beautiful hearts, a depth that’s been earned from going through enough challenge, a sincere dedication to listening to the unfolding of themselves, and a passion to share feminine embodiment with circles of women, so that more and more women can experience their bodies as true temples of nature + spirit. This photo is of @8limbmama_ who teaches Amba Movement classes on Monday nights in Topanga at Yoga Desa, and @ninawiger who offers workshops and sessions all over LA. Captured📸 by another Amba Movement teacher @wondersometimesspeaks 🌸✨ I can’t wait for our next training this summer. Mornings doing practices at the beach, and afternoon practice teaching and lecture/discussion at Yoga Desa in Topanga. It’s like summer camp for mermaids who love to move 🧜🏼‍♀️🌸✨✨✨✨🌿☀️ Message me or see link in bio for details 💫 . . . . . #moonwoman #yogateacher #movementismedicine #feminineenergy #yogateachertraining #shaktirising #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #womensyoga #embodiment #sacredheart #sacredwoman #loveyourbody #top#topangah #topanga #womenoftheearth

Man, I always wished I could do those fun bleached high lights in my hair or go blonde, but my hair is so fine it would fry the heck off. I tried. ⁣ ⁣ But, most of my friends do dabble with the bleach monster. 93% of people say they have overly processed hairs. ⁣ ⁣ Perms, highlights, dye, flat irons, tight work out ponytails all cause damage & breAkage because the elasticity goes to 💩.⁣ ⁣ Look at my friends crazy 6 month transformation with this healthy hair magic up my sleeves.⁣ [swipe right to see before lol] ⁣ This mama healed gnarly post partum balding & over processed, dried out hair frizz. So happy for her, looks amaze-balls.

🍃 10 Beauty Secrets from Ancient Egypt 🍃 || 🅔🅖🅨🅟🅣🅘🅐🅝🅢 were quite the #beauty enthusiasts. Both men & women indulged in makeup, perfume, & beauty rituals they believed not only enhanced their appearance, but also had magical & religious powers 🔮. . . . . . . . . . . . . . [1] #RedOchre: natural pigment used as lipstick 💄 & cheek stain (#blush). [2] #Kohl: (Eyeliner) the first purveyors of the #CatEye we all love (& struggle with) so much. [3] #BurntAlmonds: women used burnt almonds to paint their brows black & to fill them in. They were on top of the eyebrow game before it even got started. 🤣 [4] #Henna: for beautiful skin detailing. The Egyptians also used henna to naturally dye their fingernails yellow & orange. Conditioning agent for their nails. [5] #CastorOil, #SesameOil, & #MoringaOil: used to fight wrinkles, anti aging & to preserve their youth. [6] #SoapPaste: They made paste out of clay & olive oil. The soap would cleanse the body as well as nourish & heal the skin. [7] #Honey & #MilkMask: popular beauty product for it's sweet smell, hydrating & moisturizing capabilities. [8] #MilkBaths: It is believed that 👑 #Cleopatra took milk baths as a skincare treatment. 🛀🏽 The lactic acid exfoliated & rejuvenated the skin. [9] #DeadSeaSalt: Another beauty secret straight from #QueenCleo herself is Dead Sea salts for the skin. The Dead Sea is known for it's natural #healing properties that replenish essential minerals lost during daily activities. [10] #BodySugaring: Hair removal has clearly been a thing since the dawn of time 🤷🏾‍♀️ This method is less painful than waxing with the added benefits of exfoliation & the elimination of skin irritation.
