An absolutely beautiful morning. Perfect “refreshing” 1 mile lake swim (some might say cold but they also wore wetsuits haha, i thought it was just right) and then cheering for some great friends as they biked and ran. I’m going to miss open water swimming, the season always seems to end too soon. besides my yoga mat the water is my zen place. It’s just me and water, quiet. I can release extra thoughts, find a rhythm and almost lose myself in the swim. No matter body of water, the distance or even the challenge I always come out of the water feeling like a new person, completely refreshed…Much like my yoga practice #beeinspirednation #mermaidatheart #openwaterswim (at Wharton State Forest)

Up early for the last open water swim of the season. I think I need to move somewhere where I can do this year round… #needtobeinthewater #mermaidatheart #lakeswim #openwaterswim #swimmingyogi #sunrise #southjersey #pinebarrens (at Atsion Lake)

Taught my very first workshop today 😊. I’ve been teaching for years but I was still so nervous about today. It all worked out and I as soon as I remembered to breath it was fine. Maybe I’ll do another one some time soon. And after 2 hours of hips and backbends my feet got a little closer than they have been getting all week… #workinprogress #smile #beeinspirednation (at Bee Inspired Yoga)
