Tapas…

Of the yogic kind. Tapas, not delicious Spanish plates of food, is the heat that can bring change and allow for room to grow and connecting with tapas allows us to stay mindful of our choices. It is that fiery drive residing within us that moves us towards our goals. This discipline does not, however,... read more
Home is where your heart is...

Home is where your heart is…

It really is. I’ve spent 7 years in this construction of a home rotating roommates, friends and lovers. The times when I have felt the most grounded, the most at home, are the times when my heart has been completely present. It really doesn’t matter where you rest your head or where your things are.... read more

How to win at life…

Life is kind of like dodgeball in the sixth grade. In the bigger, broader sense of the game that is, I don’t want to bring back any horrible childhood memories of being the last one picked. Think about being a captain of that team. In the most simple and fundamental terms you pick the best... read more
Enter Sandman

Enter Sandman

We’ve all had those nights where sleep seems impossible. We try everything…hot tea, reading an old textbook, or if you’re like me two summers ago, a cup of whiskey. Unfortunately, short of passing out, many of these things don’t seem to work for most people. Reading can get our brains firing and hot tea is... read more

Dreams of juice…

  Apparently I’m on trend. Funny how these things come around. When I moved out of my small town I became the nice enough but weird girl who was always wearing cowboy boots, flannel and the occasional Native American inspired shirt. I’ve always loved dream catchers, feathers, turquoise and wearing earrings that don’t match.  I’ve... read more

Take the time…

Okay, so not quite 2 months since my last post. It’s not that I haven’t had anything to say. I’ve had moments driving from one class to the next or in the middle of planning a class for a client where I think of something that I’d like to write about but I just haven’t... read more

Happiness lies where?

Happiness lies where?

I was standing at the book store looking at a magazine rack and was overcome with a sense of panic. Different publications telling me how to live my “happy life” and textually screaming at me how to “be healthy now!”. It seems that being healthy is a full time job and I already have a... read more

Everything is going to be alright…

Chronic back pain? At 31? For an active yogi? Seriously, what twisted version of the Twilight Zone is this? There could be a hundred reasons why I’m dealing with this in my body and truthfully it’s probably a combination of many things: working in the service industry for 12 years, ski injuries, falling off things,... read more
Willfully Surrendering...

Willfully Surrendering…

Tonight is a full moon. In any given full moon there lies an opportunity to release. The moon has a very strong gravitational pull on the earth & when it is full it has the most power. Releasing what no longer serves you on a full moon is a very powerful way to align your... read more
