Winter is just around the corner. The season gives us cues to rest- it's dark early, colder, and generally the perfect time to listen, restore, and reflect. I've been sick with a cold this week, feeling better now and grateful for these seasonal reminders to slow down and chill. Here's Nigel with a friendly nudge to take it easy and enjoy resting. 😻
Hope to see you for my last week of classes this year. We'll continue tapping into our inner steadiness.

TRIGGER WARNING. The #metoo yoga stories are difficult to read, especially for those who have been harassed and preyed upon in the yoga world. I've witnessed this behavior go unchecked for years and I'm tired. Enough. We need to keep speaking up and reporting these incidents. Eventually our collective experiences and voices will have to be heard. Coming forward sucks, I will not make light of that. But, telling our stories is essential to bringing these issues to the forefront and preventing more women from being harmed. If you want support please reach out. I am here for you and I believe you.
"There comes a time where any human being who lives their truth will have no other choice than to stand in their integrity and not permit ugly behavior that can be stopped by speaking out."

#MeToo - The Yoga Stories. Link in bio.
SHARE THIS POST. Tag your teachers, students, friends. I call for all teachers in this community to take a stand against sexual harassment and abuse within the yoga world (and everywhere!). Teachers that abuse the power they hold in student-teacher relationships should not be allowed to teach. Sexual predators should not be leading teacher trainings, or headline yoga festivals, or grace the covers of yoga magazines. Men that take advantage of the vulnerability of this practice do not belong in our community.
Please share this post. And from this moment on, if you see something… Say something! I hope this movement empowers us all to speak up from a place of truth. For more details and to read the stories go to www.rachelbrathen.com/blog #MeTooYoga

This is how to handle sexually inappropriate behavior in the workplace. Period. #believewomen
Yoga folks, it pains me that broadcast journalism is displaying stronger ethics than much of the yoga world. We must hold each other to higher standards. It's our collective duty to create safe spaces where inappropriate sexual behavior, harassment, abuse, and assault are not tolerated. Ahimsa. Nearly every day I hear women say they avoid certain classes because they/ their friends were creeped on, touched inappropriately, or otherwise sexually harassed/ abused/ assaulted. I know well how scary it is to speak up, but I trust that the more we talk about our experiences, the more we speak up to yoga center owners and managers, the more likely we can create a safe environment for yoga practice. If we choose to remain silent, we become complicit. ☮️
I will not use yoga to promote diet culture. I'm committed to creating an inclusive, body positive space in my classes and offerings. There will be no talk of detoxing, making room for pie, burning the (insert whatever you ate), nor other blatant or covert body shaming tactics in my teaching or promotion of my offerings. Yoga does not want to fix you. Yoga wants you to feel more whole, more connected, to experience your true nature. Grateful for the opportunity to hold space for healing and inner peace every day. 🙏🏽💜 at Yoga Tree Valencia

One of my life goals is to be surrounded by badass feminists who choose to stand up to the blatant and often benevolent sexism that prevails in the workplace and our culture. If you've been wondering how you can do/ be better in recent times, do yourself (and all beings everywhere) a favor by reading Sarah Lacy's new book. It's full of inspiration and familiar stories of what women encounter in the workplace and throughout life. Includes helpful tips for elevating each other and fighting the patriarchy's myriad ways of keeping us earning lower wages than our male counterparts, treating us like we are inferior, holding us to higher standards, and preventing us from shining in our hard earned roles as LEADERS. A Uterus is a Feature, Not a Bug is out today! Get your copy online or in bookstores everywhere.
I hope you have a friend like my dearest @niki_a_dubz. Goddess is always down to listen and spread love, bonus she sends flowers on a Monday. 💐☮️💟🕉🙏🏽 at Noe Valley, San Francisco
Irresistible fluffy bae. 😻
