Hot Yoga 90 Days Renewed | 5 of 90



I. Am. Beautiful.

Class 5’s intention. And it was amazing. This is an intention I’ve used a few times way back in the day and it’s so powerful. Every time I change postures I breathe with the thought, “I am Beautiful”. I stay focused and each posture becomes more confident and I begin to believe myself more and more. By the end of class, during spine strengthening, I find myself seeing the beauty in every one else, too. People I don’t even know. This is a powerful intention that is so great no matter where I find myself in my practice.

This was my third Hatha class since I started the challenge. I finally made it through every posture in the series without needing an unscheduled break! WOO!!!

Fun Note: The more you go to the hot room, the better your body sweats. Every time I go, I sweat more and faster than the time before. Your body gets better at regulating its temperature with sweat. This may be gross to some, but it feels SO GOOD to just release so much and to see and feel your body’s confidence that is physical rather than mental. Seeing the beads develop on my legs in seconds that used to take minutes tells me my body knows what it’s doing before my mind does.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

Eighteen Months Nomadic

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
