Adventure Sparks Divinity

My morning adventure was waking up at 3am to drive to see the sunrise. It felt fucking phenomenal to do this for myself. As I stood, danced, sang, breathed, and moved my body- I mindfully spoke to God/Goddess/Universal Oneness, voiced my gratitude and asked to be an open vessel of light and love for Source to work through in support of humanity and Earth. When I was very young I loved God, then in my Roman Catholic gradeschool and Eastern Orthodox High School years- religion

Feed Your Soul

I have simplified my nutrition during this pandemic. My studies to become a Yoga Therapist truly opened my eyes to the importance of focusing on nutrition in the sense of your entire being- what you take in to feed yourself. Movement, food, environment, emotionally, news, tv, music, the people closest to you, the community you engage with- how you feed your spirit, nature, art, creativity. My life is very simplistic these days I nourish myself on all levels- open windows with

Less Stuff More Life

Growing up I moved approximately 8-10 times before the age of 12. I attended 4 Catholic grade schools. We moved about every other year. This led to me having an obsession with "things" and "stuff." I was definitely a spoiled child when it came to physical things- clothes, toys, junk food, tv, computer when they 1st came out, video games. I definitely had a lot if stuff. Due to moving so much and having a very unique personality😌, I struggled with making friends 6th grade whe

Merit Badges of Strength, Courage and Resilience

For a huge part of my life I was chronically dissatisfied in my relationships with people and with situations surrounding me. A big part of this was rooted growing up in an abusive home while feeling powerless, scared, misunderstood and unheard- once I was old enough to understand the unhealthy dynamics in my family- I headed into a very dark head-space. My spirit began to get covered over and I was lost. This experience led me to spending my adult life learning how to connec

Find a Lesson in Everything

About once or twice a year I lose my voice. With teaching yoga, in some capacity, 7 days a week it's no mystery why this happens. I am also a heart led teacher which can add to the energy drain. For the next few days as I recover I ask my students to be understanding. This is also an opportunity for me to be very mindful and selective about the words I use while cuing my classes. #findalessonineverything #letsseehowthisgoestoday #lostmyvoice #honeylemonginger #selfcare #yogae

Malawi Trek

On this day of love I am being pulled to share this experience with all of you because it is a huge influence on my yoga teaching. It has come to my attention that some of you may not know that as part of my Yoga Teacher Training with Beyond Asana in 2014 I personally raised almost $7,000 for buildOn and my training group raised over $50,000 (I could be wrong on the group total). We then traveled to Malawi, Africa, in January 2015 to take yoga off the mat and into the world.
