Most of what I know,
I’ve learned by falling
and getting back up.
The ground has taught
me more about flight
than the clouds
ever could.

Tomorrow is International Day of HAPPINESS!! 😍
Did you know that *human connection* is one of 6 habits that help create long-term happiness in us?!
(Not that I really need another excuse to connect with @tditty2 & make shapes together 😂, but hey, that sounds like a perfect one! 👌🏼)
.
I’ll be celebrating Happiness tomorrow with @dybrkr & @lgusa and yoga and dancing into the sunrise... all from the top of the One World Observatory!! #cantwait
☀️
ps. Swipe left to see how we get into this fun partner pose. 😍
Which shape is your fave?  1, 2, or 3?
.
pps. The other 5 habits for sustainable happiness are: gratitude, positive outlook, purpose, mindfulness, and generosity. ❤️
Which one do you practice most?

➡️ Help me caption this pic! 🍍
Well, I was gonna be super cheesy (as per usual 😂) and say something about how we should all be more like a pineapple (and be sweet on the inside and wear a crown 👑),
hah, BUT I think you guys will do a much better job coming up with a cute caption that won’t make us all PINE for something better... 🤦🏻‍♀️

Your life is a reflection
of your thoughts.
If you change your thinking,
you change your life.

Enjoying the endless shades of blue from my hotel room at @fssurfside ... 😍meanwhile, the secret behind the Hairstand pose is now revealed thanks to this mirror. 😂
.
ps. I know, I know.. yogis are weird, we see a mirror & take a selfie, but not exactly the same way most people do... 🙈

Reach for the stars but keep your
feet on the ground ⭐️
Making shapes with my sis-STAR
103 floors up,
1353 feet high,
in an all-glass box,
that extends 4.3 feet off
the edge of the building... 🙈
I know it sounds crazy, but anything feels possible when you’re with someone who’s got your back...
#whpsheinspiresme ❤️
Who has your back, no matter what? Tag them here!

Swipe left to get a glimpse of my view looking down the glass floor above downtown Chicago with @tditty2 balancing on my back... 👀

Snippets of an actual acro-yoga conversation that are WAY more innocent than they sound:
“Do you want to be on top or bottom?”
“Let’s do it again but a little slower.”
“My hips need to be over your hips.”
🤣❤️🙊
Haha, tell me something you’ve said to your acro partner that easily could’ve been taken out of context & tag them here!👇🏼

You don’t have to move mountains.
Simply fall in love with life. Be a
tornado of happiness, gratitude and
acceptance. You will change the world
just by being a warm, kind-hearted
human being. ❤️

My new mantra, because Kindness is free, and it makes this world a more beautiful place to live.
Happy Friday friends, and Happy International Women’s Day to ALL of you strong, beautiful ladies! 😍

Reunited with my (acro) partner in crime, @tditty2 & I couldn’t be happier. 💙
#SisterTime
We have SO MANY similarities, but our 8-inch height difference can sometimes be  tricky when trying out a new partner pose!
.
In this one we each took turns doing handstand & cobra, and it was so interesting to see how our height difference affected the final shapes of the posture.  Tova will be posting her handstand variation, and here‘s a couple of mine (which do you like best - 1 or 2?  I couldn’t decide 🙈)
.
Swipe left for the video of how we get into & out of this pose, and for a glimpse of how much fun we have when the two of us get together. 💙

every no, every rejection,
they're all a part of the
invitation - the universe on remix,
awaiting us to step into
the bigger story our past has
prepared us for.
~ danielle doby
✨❤️✨
Feeling these words a little extra today as I’m reminded of all the doors that didn’t open for me, no matter how hard I tried or wished for them to.
.
It’s easy to peek into someone else’s life and only notice what’s going right for them.  But remember - behind every success you see, that there are always numerous fails, closed doors, & rejections first.
.
So if you’re going through anything similar, and feel like you’re working hard but not getting anywhere... hang in there.
Everything will unfold exactly the way it’s meant to.  And more often than not, the universe has something better waiting for you than anything you ever could have planned. ❤️
