A study in hips.
I always try to include an element of playfulness in my personal aerial yoga practice, as well as often in my classes. It’s an essential part of life that we often let slip when we age. I take it as a mission to bring it back.
Pigtail bun day is the only reason I still have long hair (not actually, but I do love pigtail buns). That, and I promised myself I would grow it out one more time to make sure I hate it. And yep, I do. So as soon as I make it to my goal weight with the help of my personal trainer @wholeconnection I’m chopping it all off again. My motivation to start personal training was simply to be stronger and healthier, and rehabilitate my muscles and the way that they talk to each other after tearing my piriformis a few years ago. Setting a target weight is an easy way to stay motivated and set a marker for some kind of progress for me. But anyway, for now it’s #pigtailbunday 💇♀️

One of only a very few mentions I’ll make that I’m moving all of my future jewelry posts over to that account. If you want to see what I’m up to head over to that account and follow! Thanks!
I love a work in progress shot, don’t you? There is something so meditative about working with fire. I am home sick today, so I’m finding it challenging to concentrate on much, but fire commands your full attention. I love that about it.

LAST JEWELRY POST ON THIS ACCOUNT (probably)! I have been stopping myself from loading up this account with all my jewelry posts as I continue down the rabbit hole of silversmithing. As a result and after much consideration I decided to make a separate jewelry account. Please follow it at @b_onward_adornments I am starting off this new account with a piece on SALE right now for $10 off, so go check it out.
Thank you all for your support! ❤️💜😘⭐️ #silversmithing #jewelry #handmadejewelry #silver #silverjewelry #minneapolis #makethings
Wild Friday night with this party animal.
Climbing offers so many opportunities for humility. I hardly ever NEED to be reminded not to take myself too seriously, but appreciate the reminders when they come all the same. #myhandsarejustcallouses #climbing #gettingstronger
#TBT to being #Twiggy for Halloween 2013. Just for fun.
It was a year of change, of shifting, of letting go. It was a year of rewriting the story I tell myself about myself. It had many really high highs, and some very deep, cavernous lows. It was a year of expanding my chosen “tribe”, and of seeing how much love I have around me. It was a year of learning to stand in my integrity and not allowing myself to be bullied away from my path, or into silence.
Admittedly, between grief, art shows, and the holidays my personal yoga practice has suffered. I refuse to feel guilty about it. That is just the way that life goes sometimes. You have to be willing to meet yourself where you are everyday, and sometimes it just isn’t on your home yoga mat. Today is a day for self care. After teaching yoga and between taking a bath, and a nap I showed up on my mat in the body I have today, and here is a little slice of it for you. . . .
