She’s home! And she brought the sun back with her. She’s clever like that 🧡🖤 @sarahlindaturner #mygirl #thattanthough
Wednesday afternoons look a little different these days. Miss lunching in the sun with this one. #abbyandarma #niece
My girl @laurenoconnor taught her first public class at @yoga213 today. Proud is an understatement. 💜 #yoga213 #watchoutguys
Feel this in my bones.
And then all of a sudden she was two. Hat party, hat cake. Whatever you want Abby. 🎈🧢🎉 #happybirthday #abbyturnstwo #niece
There are two types of people. Those who can wait to take photos and those who can’t. 😂🥑 #stanleymountwaverley @stanleymountwaverley
Falling in love with being a student again. 🙏🏼 #attheplacewiththegoodvibes
Making drinks for the little one (and me too). I love that in her world this is as sweet as it gets. 🍌 #littlecleanbaby #smoothies
The aftermath of Murph at @crossfitmoreland this morning. My introduction to Crossfit was watching the documentary on the 2015 Crossfit games where Murph, this awful looking workout, destroyed the athletes. For those playing at home it’s: 1 mile run 100 pull ups 200 push ups 300 air squats 1 mile run. Since actually starting crossfit four months ago I knew (and was terrified) that there was a possibility I’d have to attempt it. And that day came today. I thought there would be no way I’d finish. In the past I would have struggled to do any one of these components. Yes I used bands for my pull ups, did my push ups on my knees, and most of us broke up the sets but I finished. At 40 minutes we were given the option to stop. It took me 57 minutes and 50 seconds of pushing but I did it. I’m not going to lie, I was a bit emotional running back into the box after that last mile. Don’t be afraid to push yourself. We’re capable of way more than we let ourselves believe. Thanks to the epic crew at @crossfitmoreland for always getting us over the line. #icannolongerwalk #murph #crossfit
If you’re looking for me in the next two weeks, you’ll find me here. 😴 #andwedone #savasanafordays Cutest pic by @iliveinbalance
Grateful. So grateful. Two very emotional farewells down. One to go. @good_vibes_yoga I’m coming at you. Tonight and tomorrow morning in Collingwood and Sunday in Northcote. 💜 #allthefeels
B I T T E R S W E E T Disclaimer: long read coming at you. Word has been traveling so so fast, so I wanted to share with everyone that I’m officially stepping away from teaching yoga for the foreseeable future. Not because I don’t still adore it but because something else is calling me more right now. Something I am so incredibly excited about. Teaching yoga for the past four years has been the most challenging and most rewarding thing I’ve ever done and what’s next is going to be more challenging but I hope just as rewarding. To my beautiful students. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for you. For trusting me, for letting me into your world, for constantly coming back to your mat. You have taught me more than I could have ever taught you. I will be on the mat next to you now, not in front of you. Don’t be a stranger. To my bosses who feel more like friends and mentors, I can’t thank you enough for giving me a chance and believing in me. Often more than I believed in myself. And to my mentors whether you know you are or not. You inspire me daily. To the wonderful people who’ve supported me in the crazy change ahead, you know who you are and you know I couldn’t have done it without you. And to my own practice. Thanks for teaching me I’m enough and I can be brave. Because I’m going to need it. I’m not going to talk here about where I’m going and what I’m doing but please come chat to me, I’m very happy to talk about it. I am teaching until Sunday September 2nd and I hope to see as many of your faces as I can until then. See you on the mat. Photo by one of my inspirations @trinskyyoga
