@meliniseri Rise to the challenge to reshape who you are.

Which do you like better? Straight leg or bent knee? I’ve only over done this with my other foot on the ground or against a wall dropping back so this was a new one!

@meliniseri Most of your life is out of your control, but you can always choose joy 💕

Today I’m grateful for simple things like having a bathroom (you can see it in my stories!) Soon I’ll be able to move back home and sleep in my own bed and that will feel amazing!

When you’re displaced from your home, you learn a lot about people and about yourself. Unexpected people step up and other people disappear when you ask for help. You roll up your sleeves and get stuff done because there’s no one else who will if you don’t. When you put your home in order, you can see things clearly, let go of the past and all the things and people that are simply taking up space to make room for something new.

@meliniseri Over the weekend I went to @henrywins 1 year anniversary of being Vegan. I love that he gives you lots of info and things to think about without any sort of judgement. He is an elevated soul. Because so many people in the world have their opinion and they think their opinion is right, and that if you don’t believe what they believe then you are wrong or stupid and then they get all upset and agitated if you don’t agree with them. And THEN I won a private with him in a raffle so I’m excited to learn lots of things from him because he’s the Yoga Asana Champion of the World!!! 🏆🥇 Such a great day. And this morning we took pictures together so I’m still riding high on the @henrywins vibes 💕

@meliniseri You can create any life you desire. Stop waiting for someone or something to save you, to make you happy or hand over whatever you’re waiting for. You’re responsible for yourself and your life.

In my last relationship my partner told me that he was attracted to me, but he was more attracted to me when I weighed under 108.4lbs. If I wanted to go eat my favorite omakase sushi, I had to weigh in under 108.4lbs for 7 days. (Not 108.5, because that rounds up to 109lbs, and we could only go once every 3 months as a treat.) He was “motivating” me because I didn’t want to be fat anyway... at one point I had an actual medical issue but I was so focused on staying skinny to make him happy that I ignored my own health. Other guys have made fun of me for how much food I eat. Sounds crazy when I think back on it, but how did I even end up in these relationships? I grew up with a mother who was constantly telling me there was something wrong with the way I looked. Before a special event, she said “oh good, you have time to come home to fix your eyes and your chin”. There were a million little things pecking me to death and I was always being told I wasn’t good enough or there was something inherently wrong with me and for the longest time I believed it. I only recently set boundaries to stop allowing that into my life. I’m not a victim, and I’m here to blame; I believe all of us are on a journey and there are lessons we have to learn for our souls to develop, and this was part of mine.

Now if I desire expensive sushi, I take myself out on a date or find a friend to go with me. When I travel for work I find the nicest sushi place in town and I make a reservation for 1! I don’t need anyone’s permission and I don’t need to weigh in on a scale to “deserve” or “earn” it. And if I want to eat @teruzushi 4 times in 3 weeks because it’s my favorite food I do it. I live my own life and I don’t need anyone’s permission to do the things I like to do.

P.S. my advice for today is don’t be in a relationship that pecks you to death slowly over time with words poking holes into your soul

@meliniseri @janiceliou asked me for a #BTS #howtoyoga for this one arm pinwheel balance because she wanted to know if it’s easy or not. ”Easy” is relative so you can swipe to see how I get into it and decide for yourself when you try. You can also swipe to see a pigeon photobombing me which @sfreneenyc thinks is the best part 😂

Are there other poses that you would like me to film how I get into???

@meliniseri I read something this morning that said “be your own other half” and I think that it’s a great idea. I also think it’s important to not be so closed off that we don’t let anyone in and allow love into our lives in different ways. Everything is a balance. One of the people I keep close is my spiritual and life coach @catherineparetti . She is teaching me to be more connected to spirit with a pendulum. I’ve been having lots of fun asking many questions and practicing every day. Swipe to see the video of me using the pendulum for the first time. Have you tried this before???

@meliniseri I love showing up for class and being inspired by my students! At @alonewyork yesterday a couple of people were practicing #mayurasana before class so I added in the 2 arm and 1 arm versions into last night’s flow.

After years of teaching I like to feel the vibe of the room when I walk in and go with that instead of planning something in advance which is more about me and not about who is there in front of me because one arm peacock or “croc” would not be my plan 😅.

@meliniseri @cycleofmichael tagged me to share THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY:
1. Spending time with people I love like @palmbeachyogi and @sfreneenyc who I just 📸 with this morning
2. Delicious food like my dinner last night from @teruzushi which is the best sushi I’ve ever had in my life #priceless 
3. Having a purpose in life and being able to answer things like “why am I here?” “what is the meaning of life?” which I used to wonder about when I was an investment banker
4. Animals since they vibrate so high like my client’s fluffy dog who I will hug in a moment 
5. Being an independent self sufficient person who actually doesn’t rely on anyone else or any “thing”  to “make” me happy because that wouldn’t end well 😂 even though I love love and and I love to snuggle

I’m tagging @palmbeachyogi and @deehollidayyoga to share their top 5!
