Words can’t describe how noble, funny, witty, smart, graceful, strong, and yet sweet this lady is. She came to complement my brother and I to form a perfect tripod. I was only three years old when you were born and I remember vividly my joy and happiness when our dad said “it’s a girl!”. Not only you are an amazing sister, but you are an amazing daughter, wife and mother and I am so proud to have witness your growth and evolution in this life. Love mucho hermanita! God bless you today and always and I wish you have an amazing day today, showered with love, blessings, joy and laughter!! 😘✨🌸
The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests, minerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity… that’s all there is. That’s the whole economy. That’s where all the economic activity and jobs come from. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world. -- Gaylord Nelson. #earthday
The most fortunate are those have the wonderful capacity to appreciate again and again, freshly and naively, the basic goods of life, with awe, pleasure, wonder, and even ecstasy. #AbrahamMaslow. #constanza #appretiation #gratitude
“Be kind to your body, gentle with your mind and patient with your heart. Stay true to your spirit, cherish your soul and never doubt yourself. You are still becoming, my love, and there is no one more deserving of the nurturing grace of your love.”- Beca Lee
I’ve been under excruciating back pain during the last three days, to the point I had to go to urgent care to get injected to relieve the pain. Although I’m still not 100%, today I feel way much better and I was able and blessed to teach a #restorativeyoga class. .
Every time I get sick, or injured, or feel under the weather, one of my greatest challenges is to slow down. I’ve always considered my body super strong, flexible and resilient, so it is very frustrating when I have to lower my speed and intensity a notch down, and embrace stillness to give myself time to heal physically and mentally.
During these past three days I’ve been reflecting about this, and how hard it is, not only to me, but in general, to embrace that #yin side of us, that soft, nurturing, calm energy, and make space and time to heal.
So I guess that is my lesson today. To be OK with being still. To ground myself, to find beauty and strength in that passive, female energy during those dark times when I need to slow down.
Special thanks to @yogahealingnature for their teaching and dedication during our yoga retreat in India, on our evenings restorative yin yoga classes. Your training gave me the confidence and tools to start teaching restorative yoga.
