Maia....My Ultimate Girl Crush
This woman defines what wellness looks like, and how aging with grace is a real thing. It actually exists. Self-awareness, ease, mind-body-spirit connection....man, Maia kills it!
I actually found this video 4-5 years ago, in what I would call the height of my biggest 'wow!' moments. I was in yoga training, shifting my world upside down, realizing I had an exercise addiction, and that I was pursuing a lifestyle/career that only enabled poison. Toxic thoughts, habits, and huge amounts of denial. Oh yeah, I was the captain of that denial train. This video, Maia, gave me a glimpse of what I saw in yoga that spoke to a truth, the real truth, not the one I had created around 'health,' or 'exercise.' I can't tell you how many times I've watched this simple video of this woman's simple day, but every time I do (well, I cry nearly every time, but that's not the point nor is it helping my street cred), I feel re-connected to that truth, that goal of living a life that is whole.
Plus, let's be honest that home girl's abs are pretty damn strong for a more 'lived' gal. :)
