Happy weekend, friends! So much joy in my heart.
Killed it in bouldering this week (three new “blue” routes under my belt!), have felt more inspired in writing and artistic endeavours than ever, witnessed some real transformative moments in the yoga class I taught this week, and I now have a beautiful afternoon before me to spend outdoors with my cheerful, bright and zippy little girl!
Thankful for family, home-cooked meals, fine friends, the sunshine finally staring down the winter gloom, collaboration of creative minds, happy returns, full and open hearts, the opportunity to teach literacy through comic books, boundless energy, new beginnings, nice wines, cute dresses, the power of well-chosen words, moments of stillness, serendipity, piping hot cups of tea, imagination, sharing in the happinesses of those I care about, baked goods, laughter and good health.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! Sending sunshine and smiles your way!

It’s been awhile, time to #eaglethatshit! Not the prettiest, but I do love that it’s becoming easier for me to do interesting handstand shapes in small spaces. 😊

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather; not going too hard on the handstands. Day 15 of #handstandlove = one of the only documented instances of me ever wearing sweatpants! I’m as shocked as you are.
Straight handstand for #handstandlove day 14 for @fitqueenirene and #cometotheedge #cccmademedoit for @carsonclaycalhoun (old hashtag trend, I know!) and just generally to freak out anyone on FB who has been concerned with my handstands always being so close to the staircase. 😉 #handstandseverydamnday
Quickly catching up on some handstands I missed! Have a few more, but this will do for today! (Last week, I stalled on pike handstand - my nemesis - but then didn’t want to skip it.) #handstandlove days 7,8,10 (my fave - eagle handstand!), 11 and 12. @fitqueenirene
#handstandlove day 6 for @fitqueenirene. Sorry, total vanity post. I love my sequinned fox sweater! Haha. #whatdoesthefoxsay
#handstandlove day 4 for @fitqueenirene! Also major #boulderinglove! (Though climbing left my arms tired, and on such a soft surface, this took more tries than I would like to admit. 😂)
I’ve been neglecting my Tumblr, and just want to take a moment to express my deep gratitude for all of my friends and followers on here. You are the inspiring beings who kicked off my yoga journey in the first place, and I am forever grateful!
I’m hoping to include more text posts and updates in the future (I have SO much to write about!) but for now, I want to open up the floor to questions. I’ll do a Q&A all week, so if you have any questions on yoga, my life, or anything else appropriate, shout it out here: yogasunshine.tumblr.com/ask
(Please note: I’ll only answer questions that can be publicly posted on this blog.)
