15 weeks️28 weeks ️ Same hotel room. Same bathroom mirror. 4 months apart️ The photo on the left was my pregnancy announcement photo (and my most liked photo on Instagram ever!) and I remember feeling wild with excitement that my belly was showing. And look at it now! I've entered my third trimester and tomorrow morning we fly home to Aruba to stay put. No more traveling until summer 2017! For now I have a yoga studio to open and an online platform to run and a book to finish writing but above all, I'm planning to swim in the ocean, meditate, walk the dogs, do yoga, read and really embrace these last few weeks of pregnancy. I think our little poppyseed girl is looking forward to some quiet too️ #pregnancy #baby #motherhood #travel #love

We took a birthing class today and I can honestly say it was one of the best decisions we've made in this pregnancy journey thus far. I wasn't sure what to expect because to be honest, I feel very calm about the prospect of labor. I'm not nervous or anxious and have felt from day 1 like it's truly something I am capable of, like I'm really born to do this (which I am!). I'm visualizing a sacred experience and working to rid myself of the conditioned idea that birth is something traumatic and unbearable. I feel like all the inner work I've done has prepared me for this. Still, I hadn't given much thought to the actual process, logistical things, natural pain relieving techniques and what the dynamic between me and Dennis would be like - all I know is I want to give birth at home and I want it drug free. The controlling side of me just wants to be alone and do everything on my own but I've realized now that this truly is something me and Den will do together. I can lean on him. And there are a TON of amazingly helpful tips and birthing support out there! We spent six hours with @annasprofylax today and learned SO much. Not just about the actual process of birth but massage and pressure techniques, specific breathing exercises for the different stages of labor, ways for us to stay connected throughout... In the picture above Dennis is using a pressure technique on my pelvis which is supposed to ease pain during contractions (it felt really good even now!) and we got to practice several different types of breath work together. I'm so glad we went. Highly recommend this for all moms and dads to be! Whether or not you are opting for hospital or home, medicated or drug-free, natural or Caesarian, there is a way to make this sacred. I fully believe it. I will of course be sharing my own story - I know what I want but I am fully open and ready for whatever comes. Will be blogging about this class from the plane! One more day in Sweden and then we head home. This little family is ready to slow down and rest️x @annasprofylax #28weeks #pregnancy #birthclass #labor

Baby shopping day! This is our last trip before baby arrives and considering it is 100% impossible to get anything decent in Aruba we are trying to make sure we have what we need now. It's SO hard! @dennisfromsalad is super into the technical side of stuff (stroller, car seat etc) and those kinds of gadgets but I'm just sort of floating around marveling over tiny socks and fluffy things that we probably don't even need. Like this bunny. It's so soft!!! So fluffy! She will love this! I think. Maybe? God. Everything is so soft. And tiny. I pick up a onesie and absolutely for the life of me cannot imagine a little person fitting into it. Are babies really this small?? I'm clueless. I was very present with all of my little sisters when they were little but I can't remember them ever being this tiny. I guess it's different when it's your own... All I know is, I know nothing. This is going to be one hell of a ride @babyshopse #pregnancy #motherhood #baby #love

Travel tip: pretend that your hotel room is your home️ . Whenever we book hotel stays I always request the following things: a kettle, a small fridge (hotels will almost always accommodate this!), a bathtub (if available) and a balcony (if affordable). The kettle allows me to make my own tea and hot lemon water in the mornings and with the fridge available I can stock up with healthy snacks. I usually head to a local grocery store right after I've arrived to buy necessities like fruits, veggies, hummus, yoghurt, coconut water... It's so good to have fresh stuff around! If there is no fridge available (rare) I empty the contents of the mini bar and squeeze my things in there. If the room has a balcony that's magic because we can sit outside, or at least let in fresh air to clear the space. And the bathtub! Oh, bathtub. I will literally choose hotels after bathtub availability. I light candles and sprinkle a few drops of essential oils in there and it's heaven after a long day. Don't worry, with little Poppy I make sure the water isn't too warm and I don't soak for too long. If there is no bathtub I use essential oils in the shower - lavender to calm in the evening and eucalyptus to energize in the morning. It's like an on-the-go spa! Anything to feel a little more at home Now... Time for bed. It's been a long day! Tomorrow me and Ringo are going on TV4 so tune in at 10.35am if you're Swedish x #traveltips #peace #calm @grandcentralbyscandic

. ️ . There is a little girl kicking inside of me. I wake up, and she's already dancing. I go to bed, she's doing somersaults. She's the happiest little being, this one! I think she just knows: there is a good life waiting for her. A life full of so much love, so much unconditional love, it will change the whole world as we know it. It's real; her happiness is so profound, so pure, it vibrates all the way to my fingers and toes. I feel it in my bones. There is a new dimension of joy developing inside me. Her happiness... It makes me glow. Just look at this light - it's all her. And we haven't even locked eyes yet. ____________________________________________________ : @lovebyemelie #poppyseed #iceprincess #winter #motherhood

Favorite moments from yesterday: . •Ringo pooping in the event venue right before everyone arrived (and getting his own clean-up crew!) •Feeling Poppy kick with excitement as I walked in the room to greet 800+ people awaiting our arrival. •Introducing the oneOeight Sweden branch and team •The sharing sessions and the sudden intimacy that developed between strangers •Building heat at the beginning of practice, 800 moving as one •Finding my mom in the middle of the room, face down, fast asleep (mid class!). She does that every time. •Me on stage, trying to stand up from Navasana and failing miserably (this belly is just too big!) •Journaling post-frog pose •Savasana. Always Savasana. •Listening to people's stories after practice. A girl stood up at the very end and asked the group to pray for her brother who'd had a car accident and was in a coma. Everyone cried. We prayed. The moment we opened our eyes a girl jumped up and shared the story of how only a year ago, she was in a coma, too. And now here she was. Moving, dancing, practicing. I had goosebumps all over my body. Miracles all around. •All the hugs. Especially the long ones. My right shoulder is killing me today but it's worth it! •Eating a veggie wrap at 10pm realizing it was the first thing I had since breakfast. My body was buzzing from all the love I didn't get hungry all evening (I didn't even pee!!). But damn, that wrap was good Now, just took a bath, lying in bed reading letters and opening gifts brought for Poppyseed. Feeling all the love. Thank you everyone for coming. For letting me be a part of your journey. Thank you @oneoeight.tv for being a platform that means so much for so many. Thank you @oneoeightsweden for working so hard to bring the community magic to Stockholm. Thank you @moonsunorganic and @karby_organics for sponsoring and making the evening so special. Thank you @ryden.angela for being the most badass leader and for making all of this happen. Thank you @shama_persson for bringing motherhood far beyond bloodlines. Thank you @dennisfromsalad for taking care of me when I'm busy caring for others. And thank you @ringo_thegringo for always, always bringing us back to laughter️#love

When you're looking for a Christmas dress to squeeze your giant belly into and you've tried a hundred things on and you FINALLY find something that fits but your 15-year old sister breaks down in a laughing fit on the floor because you look like a "curtain" or perhaps "a pair of drapes" so you give up and resign to eating more cinnamon buns in your PJ's #sendhelp #nothingfits #preggoproblems : @ebraathen1 (laughing hysterically)

Touchdown Stockholm! So happy to be here. Didn't sleep a second during the 16-hour trip here but hoping I'll get a good nights sleep tonight so I'm ready for TV in the morning Checked in at the beautiful @haymarketbyscandic and now going through the VIP bags for Saturday's @oneoeightsweden class. Aren't they beautiful?? 100% organic and filled with amazing gems and gifts. This is going to be a whirlwind of a trip! Just realized this is our last ever trip without baby... Holy crap! The thought is mind boggling. Entering third trimester now - where did these past months go? Can't believe we only have three months to go!️ #sweden #travel #stockholm #pregnancy #love

This video brought tears to my eyes this morning. @alpinetreefilms you are magic! People of this earth, you are magic. I can't wait to teach again this Saturday. Open hearts. Brave beings. Everyone together. There is no separation in these gatherings, no bullshit, no ego. Just people coming together to be, as they are. It's the most beautiful fucking thing and I feel so blessed to be present as a guide on this journey. Join me on the mat! Stockholm. December 3. See you soon. www.oneoeight.se️ #community #infinitelove #beherenow

The love I feel for these boys is incomprehensible. Ringo doesn't fit curled up by my belly anymore, which is where he's slept every night since he was a puppy. There is just no space there anymore! I can sense him adjusting to life with a baby already, shifting back and forth between being extra caring and slightly confused and jealous. He gets very protective around me these days... But also doesn't like it when other people pay too much attention to my belly. If little Poppy gets too much attention he starts barking and licks everyone's faces until focus is back on him I think the natural order of things is that he'll attach a bit more to Dennis once she's here. It's happening already! They woke up like this today, and now they fell asleep the same way. I think transitioning to being a big brother is going to work out just fine #family

Welcome to Poppy's office! Our little poppyseed girl (who's more like the size of a head of cauliflower now!) loves it already We're not naming her Poppy (to close to papi in Spanish) but the nickname has totally stuck... Getting so close to finishing everything now! My office is connected to the baby room (yessss we'll have a baby room at the @island.yoga offices!) with sliding doors that open up all the way. I'm planning to bring her to work with me every day and in her room we'll have a big cozy carpet, a rocking chair, a changing station and a little crib. Walls are pink and silver and we're staining the concrete and adding a clear coat for the floor. It's going to be the coolest baby "office" ever! I'm feeling slightly less panicky today and trying to embrace and appreciate the high pace of how we are manifesting this vision. A few months ago I was complaining I had nothing to do! Learning how to go with the flow is my constant lesson. Thank you all for your kindness, it keeps me going. I shared a tour of the studio site in my Instagram story this morning if you want to check it out! Hard to imagine that we're opening our doors just a month from now... But it's all coming together. Soft opening December 18, Grand Opening with 108 sun salutations January 1 (I'll probably stick to Savasana though) __________________________________________ : @joeykoef #islandyoga #babybump #27weeks #pregnancy

Crappy, crappy day. Had a mini-meltdown. Felt unsupported. Overwhelmed. Way too stressed out for what an almost seven-month pregnant woman should be (I'm guessing). There is just too much to do, too much pressure, too many things beyond what I can juggle right now. I'm tired. So, at the end of the day I did the only thing I could think of to feel better: I dipped my head in the ocean and floated like this for a while. I love floating in the sea these days because I get to be weightless. Now I'm eating pizza and thinking of all the things I have to be grateful for (so many). In exactly one month we open the studio and I have no idea how to make all these pieces come together so I just have to trust that they will. I simply have no other choice. It's like having this baby; I have no clue how I'm going to do this. I just have to trust that when the time is right... I'll know. Life is full of crappy days. Luckily, my good ones outweigh them all. And if I ever get to a place where I feel like they don't, I have an entire ocean to remind me to just float on.

Rainy day SUP adventure! In a week I enter my seventh month of pregnancy and I'm starting to feel pretty heavy (and clumsy!). Little Poppyseed is kicking so much I have a hard time sleeping, and it's getting more and more difficult to get up off the couch... On the plus side, my sinuses have almost cleared up completely! And I don't have any back pain at all. Headstands feel fine still, handstands too depending on the day. One more trip across the Atlantic (Sweden on Wednesday!) and then I'm settling in at home to finish baking this cookie. January 1 we open @island.yoga ! I'm due February 28. 2017 is going to be wild #pregnancy #supyoga #sup #yogaeverydamnday

This love. This man. This belly. Our baby girl! I'm so in love with her already. These days I'm deeply realizing that everything I've ever been through in my life has been an absolute blessing. An absolute, total blessing. All the mistakes, the confusion and the fuck-ups, the sadness, the worry, all of the incomprehensible pain. It's all been a blessing. I know this to be true for one very simple reason: it brought me here. #family

Make peace with what is. Accepting every piece of your current circumstance is the only way to turn this seemingly random experience of life into purposeful wisdom. You were brought here because you were meant to learn these lessons, no matter how difficult, or earth shattering, or painful. Coming to terms with the fact that all of this is happening for you - not to you - is the first step toward finding true thankfulness for your past. With acceptance comes gratitude. With gratitude comes letting go. And it's through letting go that we'll stop fighting upstream and finally start working with the flow of life. Make peace with what is... and everything will start falling into place. _______________________________________________________ : @alpinetreefilms #trust #accept #letgo

Aruba right now This is the street our studio is located on; we're just 150 meters to the left. Luckily our property is fine and our house too, we're on a little hill so we managed to avoid this absolutely insane flooding. Praying for the people who's cars are floating down the street right now This is a good reminder of how vulnerable we really are - especially after the post I shared last night! And also noting that Aruba is a desert island - it never ever rains here. Dennis says he hasn't seen rain like this ever before. Even the airport is under water! Today is a good day to curl up on the couch and watch "Before The Flood" by @leonardodicaprio - climate change is REAL people! It's only going to get more and more noticeable in our day to day lives. Hoping everyone on the island is safe and that we don't get anymore rain today #flood #rain #aruba
