There is always room to be different. There is always space for what matters to you. And there is always a place that burns brighter than what people burn you out of.

What does self-love mean to you? Does it mean giving yourself little compliments throughout the day and removing negative thoughts about yourself? Or maybe it means a warm bath, eating your fave food, meditating or working out! For me, it’s all of the above. On top of that I really have been challenging myself by breaking out of my comfort zone and trying new things. Something I might have been a teeny bit self conscious about in the past because I would have been too scared to go alone to a new class. I recently have been spinning @sweatandtonic and I’m so happy I decided to finally say yes to myself and just go for it! The vibe of the studio is so inviting, and makes me want to try all the classes, the Somadome meditation pod, and attend the amazing events they host there. Such a cool community and a great way to meet people, or just spend some loving time with yourself!

@sweatandtonic is hosting their February challenge! If you complete 14 different classes, you are entered to win a staycation at the Fairmont Hotel plus breakfast at the Reign! There will be 5 different winners, so it’s a pretty incredible opportunity and chance to show yourself some love and try something new as well! ❤️ #SweatAndTonicChallenge

Poses like this don’t come easy, but if you come to my classes then you know that I talk a lot about working more than passive flexibility to progress 😉 When you stay passive in your stretching, things like binds in your backbend will be a struggle. When you take your next bind, really think of strength and what it would take to hold that shape without having to bind. Or if you have the bind, would you be able to release it without the leg or foot flinging or launching away from you?

We might not go into poses like this in my classes, but everything we work on will take you deeper into your bending practice - because that’s exactly what worked for me! I used to passively take binds, and even though it looked more flexible, if i were to let go of that bind, my leg would launch away. It’s all about the core, glutes and hamstring strengthening on top of hip mobility and shoulder mobility. Really think about this one the next time you hit that bound pigeon, or dancer pose 😘❤️

Maybe the best way to find balance in everything you have been searching for, is to let go completely. It reminds me of this quote //
In the end only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you 🙏
-
This has truly been resonating with me this year so far, because I went into 2020 with no expectations and just high open hopes. Last year I was already lost by February when things I had planned weren’t going the way I wanted. Removing that mentality for the new year has me feeling much lighter than before. So let go of the past and future, get lost a little, meet people you wouldn’t expect, and make a good impact on others and yourself.

Creating shapes with my surroundings 🏖
-
This beautiful beach is only here during low tide on a tiny island called Koh Yao Yai. The lower the tide gets the more of a sand runway is exposed, and it almost connects the two tiny islands together.

I finally got to try a spin class for the first time @sweatandtonic and it was incredible! 🥰 It was super challenging but so fun, and such a cool energy in the room. Today I did a Slay + Stretch yoga class in the @chi_junky studio and my body really needed that, especially after such a hard hitting spin class yesterday. It’s like a whole community of health and wellness at Sweat & Tonic - from meditation pods, massages and yoga, HIIT, and spin, great food and places to chill out. They also host a lot of events within the wellness and fitness industry focusing on mental health.

Someone told me that in this new year, I need to say yes to every opportunity that comes my way. So I said yes to a lot of things this year so far and many changes are happening. It’s overwhelming and scary and amazing and I can’t wait to see the direction it takes me. I get overwhelmed pretty easily and all these new beginnings are stressing me out slightly... but there’s such thing as good stress, right? 😝

I know I said I’d be posting more Toronto photos, but Im realizing I don’t have very much haha. So it’s going to be a mish-mash of travel and Toronto.

The silence of nature is very real. It surrounds you, and for a moment you can feel its power 🌱

Chasing waterfalls in Lombok 🥰 I’ll be switching back to some Toronto photos soon. Feels like just yesterday I was still traveling through Asia though.
