  3. The (Fitness) Journey Never Ends – it just changes

    I love my job. I love my team…. But 2 years of management has destroyed my body…2 years of devolving into who we think of as “our clients” (sedentary, bad diet, sore back, looooong stints at the computer, high stress) has taught me just as much as recovery from illness did. And the the old adage “you don’t use it you lose it” has been deeply driven home.

    Fitness isn’t a destination, just like life isn’t. It’s a process, and that’s what’s great about it. As our priorities shift and evolve, our bodies (and, in turn, minds) will as well. I’m at the crossroads where I’ve grown into my job enough that I can shift at least part of my priority back to myself and my wellness.

  4. Physical Strength is Feminist

    If feminist is about equal expectation for everyone and women not being afraid or thought of as ‘less than’ or ‘other’, and if you can train to improve strength, isn’t strength training in itself an expression of feminism? If your goal is true independence and a life without fear, the ability to move and own your body confidently in a space is one vehicle to get there.

Thank you to everyone who helped make yesterday a truly magical birthday. I'm so fortunate to know I am loved, supported, and truly blessed. . . . 2018 was a huge year of challenges and growth, like nothing I've experienced before. I'm ready for you, 2019. Smarter, faster, and stronger than ever before. Let's see what we can accomplish. . . . #happybirthdaytome #ihaveamazingfriends #thankful
Growth is an essential human need. . . To progress. To change. . . Sometimes we need to look back down the path to see how far we've come. Today the past reached back (via Facebook) to show me how far I've climbed. . . Never doubt that you have the ability to grow. To change. And yes, I believe that people do change! Oftentimes it's so subtle we miss it. . . So far 2018 has held many challenges; the biggest difference from 2008 is now I can see the opportunity wrapped inside them. . . #tbt #progressnotperfection #winning #fitpro #curlyhairdontcare #growthmindset @teameqx #greenwichaveequinox #equinox #itsnotfitnessitslife #committosomething
#thatmomentwhen your guided meditation series gets featured by @team_eqx πŸ˜„ πŸ™ . . For many years I held myself back with the belief that meditation was too "out there" for fitness and no one would get it. I'm so blessed to work on a company and with a team that's so excited for me to share my practice with them. . . #blessed #meditation #trainerlife #equinox #alignmentyoga #wellbeing #levelup . . . #Repost @team_eqx and @jordon.tatishi - - - - - - Mid- Month Meditation Check In w/ @darlene.coach . Thank you for this guided opportunity to reflect & focus on what sensations my body has been experiencing the last 2 weeks. Releasing tensions and centering my body.
#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher
Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❀️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
