Unstuck.

What is standing between you and your dream life? I’m not sure if the question is inspiring or cliche. I do know, however, that this question goes through my head every single morning for the last couple weeks.

The strange part of the question to myself is that I thought I was living my dream. I worked very very hard to teach yoga as my only career and I have achieved that. I am marrying the best man I have ever known in about 2 months. I have a kitty. He’s mean but he has a sweet streak too. I really felt completely whole…for about a year. Now my soul is craving growth. And my heart is telling me that this time it’s going to be a huge jump. Something is whispering in my ear all of the reasons I have to be afraid but my heart is telling me that they are not real obstacles. They are not real whispers. There is nothing, literally nothing in my way…except fear.

I talk about fear a lot in my classes and writing. I talk about it so much that I’ve given it space in my life. I’ve allowed it to exist because I thought I had no other choice.

Something has shifted in me and I know the exact moment it did. It would sound absolutely crazy if I tried to describe it in this blog but ask me to tell you about it next time we meet. Suddenly I was filled and overflowing with intense ignition. This is the word. Ignite. I began to feel and hear whispers saying “I am done hiding behind my truth for fear or rejection or ridicule. I am done second guessing my work here on Earth. I am done feeling small or inadequate. I am ready to step fully into the person I am meant to be.” And I meant it. With fire.

When I tell people this that are accustomed to believe that we have to do things a certain way, or have little faith in a greater infinite spirit inside ourselves- they don’t quite know how to respond. I can make them uncomfortable- even bitter if they are really out of touch with their spirituality. If I can convince even one person that they matter and they are far from alone on this journey then it is worth it to put myself completely out there.

I’ve prayed and meditated on my purpose. I believe in finding purpose so much. We are not here arbitrarily. We are here to do something specific that continues to evolve as we continue to evolve. With each new evolution of our spirit, a higher purpose and opportunity is introduced to us.

I’m feeling big huge brave future for myself right now. I am feeling absolutely limitless in how far I can reach. I am feeling the power to inspire an endless amount of people.

So, naturally when these thoughts slammed into me I wanted to retreat. I sat with them and meditated with them. What I found so interesting was the whispers in my head were soooo loud and so positive. They were the majority of my thoughts so much so that when the negative entity would enter my mind to tell me “who are you to think you are special? Why do you think you can grow any bigger? You don’t have the courage.” I was able to hear it and dismiss it because the majority of my feelings were so positive and encouraging. I allowed myself to have confidence. I allowed myself to feel empowered. I allowed me to believe in me. That became my mantra. “I am allowed to have confidence in myself.

I have a mission. I want to help you see your purpose. I want to help you live a full life. I want you to know, beyond a doubt, that you deserve to live with purpose and pride. I can think of a million ways to share this truth with everyone. And writing in this blog every single day will serve as one way. Teaching yoga and workshops will be another. I will indulge every single idea that comes to me without regard to ‘if it works out’.  If it touches one person then that will be perfect. So worth it.

Follow along with my journey and please allow me to follow yours. Leave comments, email me, call me, hug me, dance with me, and love me forever! I will answer every single comment left.

If this sounds crazy, that’s okay. It’s my truth. I feel empowered and motivated and inspired by my spirit guides. I am not alone on this journey. As a matter of fact, the more I feel this and pursue this, the more people and life I will attract who are on a similar journey.

Surround yourself with inspiration. Every single day!

Sending so much love to you all! Tons and tons!

A beautiful mantra

“At the very instance you think ‘I am happy’, a chemical messenger translates your emotion, which has  no solid existence whatsoever in the material world, into a bit of matter so perfectly attuned to your desire that literally every cell in your body learns of your happiness and joins in.” -Deepak Chopra

This is resonating with me so much today. I keep finding these little gems of advice everywhere I look. I decided to pass this on and hopefully someone that needs to see it will stumble upon it.

Live Your Dream…my humble advice

228

It’s only my 2 cents.  You will always need to know in every life decision why you are good enough and deserve to be happy. Always. So figure that out now. And then do what makes you happy every single day. Here’s a little bit of my most recent journey to happiness and what I think works.

I don’t make a million dollars…I mean my car doesn’t even have power windows… and it’s a stick! I can say without a doubt that I am the happiest version of myself that I have ever been. I cannot believe that I get paid to do what  I love and teach people how to find what they love. I can’t believe that I am marrying the sweetest man in the world. And I get to live in a cute tiny home half a block from the beach with my little Murph monster kitty. This. How did I deserve all of this?

So I have been thinking about how blessed I am and how I got here. I wanted to share my advice with you for anyone who feels stuck or close to giving up on being really really happy. I was there more than once.

First of all, you probably already know what you would rather be doing for your job. (Perhaps you love your job. That’s great! But this blog will most likely not interest you.) I hear from people all the time about how they have been getting all of these affirmations that they are really good at something. They are super interested in it, spend their spare time reading about it or thinking about it, taking classes on it. In other words- really very drawn to it. This could be a hobby. Hobbies are good. You don’t need to turn all hobbies into a job. The feeling you get when it is more than a hobby is a NEED TO ACT. A strong desire to get involved in some way. That desire will most likely be ignored by you. In my own experience, it was ignored because I didn’t believe I was smart enough, creative enough, loud enough (I speak very softly until I teach…or get mad at people driving), I didn’t think I could make enough money to survive doing what I loved.

So that leads me to the second thing ya gotta do…. WHATEVER IT TAKES TO CONVINCE YOURSELF!!!! I’ll tell ya what worked for me. And this is what I always do when I feel scared…I absolutely do it anyway. Fear will freeze you for a minute. The excitement of doing it anyway will melt that fear right off. I started teaching even though I was afraid of it and what people would think of my heart/classes. What has always seemed to work for me is to hurl myself into the fire so I have no time to tell myself I’m not good enough. Others have told me they have a mantra for whatever fear pops up the most in their head. Meditation. Journaling. Telling someone else your concern helps too. Don’t hold onto that negative voice that holds you back from going for the thing you want. That’s not real, it’s fear and you’re stronger than it. You really gotta love it (and yourself) more than you are afraid of it. You need to convince yourself that you deserve it and you’re good at it.

After you get over the first big challenge of showing up, you may be disappointed that the cash does not flow through like an ice cream machine. You may have to do a lot of work for free for the first few months….hopefully the first few months is all. I taught around a tree for free for a few months while serving tables. I slowly transitioned into a donation class in Hawaii because I still wasn’t sure if I deserved  to accept money for something I loved doing. You do deserve it. You’ve probably put a ton of money and time into learning your craft. You deserve it. People don’t typically expect free things except in corporate restaurants. When I moved to San Diego from Hawaii, it was like starting all over again except I didn’t know a single soul. So I taught for fruits and veggies in a park. I worked at a couple different cafes, I worked as a telephone customer service angry person until I hung up on someone for yelling at me about their flowers and never went back, I worked for a catering company, and I was teaching yoga to county employees after their work day. At one point I had 5 jobs and zero days off ever. I was surviving in the most minimal definition of that word. I had about 5 million voices in my head telling me to quit dreaming and start looking for a serious job. When this happens, and it will, go back to WHATEVER IT TAKES TO CONVINCE YOURSELF!!!!! This will become a daily practice. You will always need to know in every life decision why you are good enough and deserve to be happy. Always. So figure that out now.

The next thing, the most genius thing you just gotta do in order to make it to your dream world is NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVERRRRRR give up. Never. Not an option. Even if you have to work a job that makes you miserable while making this dream happen- do at least one thing every single day to work towards your goal. I worked those 5 jobs, I didn’t have a car and rode the bus an hour and a half both ways because San Diego really needs to get it together with public transit. It was strangely gratifying to be hustling so hard. I knew I was earning whatever success came to me. I started cleaning a yoga studio to get free yoga to keep me from going off track and peaceful. I cried a lot. My “then boyfriend- now fiance” just hugged me and never let me throw in the towel. He celebrated every win with me even if it was a $10 class. I wanted to give up but I kept finding myself in my journal writing about the gratitude I felt for everything I did have and why I deserved to keep trying. It hadn’t even been a full year in San Diego yet. Giving up after a year is barely trying. I was all in, man. If I failed it was going to be because someone looked me in the eye and told me that I was a failure and didn’t deserve it. Honestly, I’m not sure I would have quit then either. I had fire and was tired of being so unhappy with my work life.

The key to getting over the 6 month mark of going after something with no real validation that it will ever happen to you is to surround yourself with positive people, people living their dream, supporting your dream, listening to you cry, celebrating your wins, letting you vent, introducing you to people, your tribe. After 6 months especially. Your first instinct will be to isolate. You may have thoughts like “I don’t have any good news to bring” “I will make other people sad or worse pity me” “Happy people piss me off right now”. That means you need happy people more than ever. Networking is part of the job and if your an introvert like me- it might not be your favorite. In 6 months time when your new tribe has helped you reach your first HUGE win and encouraged you the whole way you will be so happy you pulled yourself up by the bootstraps and went to the party or dinner or meetup group. One man armies don’t exist.

Starting now, whether you are at the beginning of your dream life or in the middle- CELEBRATE ALL THE THINGS!!!! Every single interview, new friend, new job, promotion, other people’s happiness, a chance to do what you love even if it’s for free (think of all the new tribe members you could meet ;-)) Celebrate everything. That is the whole point of living the dream life, isn’t it? To be happy and free?

When something hits you that you are good at, passionate about, happy doing- get out there and find every single way there is to DO IT! Think way way outside the box. Make a whole other shape. Take this small piece of advice with you every morning, don’t be afraid to be you. I just love the ones that stand out! They are the most fun and inspiring and magnetic. Best human ingredients ever!

Next month is my 2 year anniversary with San Diego and I am now full time self employed yoga teacher, building my love business and brand everyday (for 4 years now) You can absolutely live your dream if you’re willing to work very very very hard for it and never give up on yourself. If I could ever help, just let me know how! Ask me or tell me anything!

Latest research on my quest for ultimate health and happiness…

082

I am obviously not a doctor. I like to consider myself a happiness investigator. I am on the hunt for it everyday. I know it’s attainable for everyone, not limited to yoga girls or rich people. While it’s not always easy to put myself out there to the world- I love to share my life if for any reason it helps anyone at all then my vulnerability is so worth it….not to mention my life’s happiness research will not go to waste. 😉

So full disclosure on my health, how food contributes to your health of your mind and belly (where most dis-eases begin), and how I move my body when darkness takes over in my mind. Yeah, it’s gonna get personal.

So I’ll begin about a month and a half ago. (the boiling point.) I was really really sick all the time. I had absolutely no energy, I was nauseous anytime I was standing up, I was having a lot of trouble breathing in fully, no motivation, walking two blocks exhausted me, and I would see pictures of people all standing around talking to each other and got jealous that I knew I wouldn’t be able to do that because of how sick I felt all day everyday. It was pretty rough. I had this really really tender place right at the bottom in the middle of my rib cage. It hurt to the touch. When I explained these symptoms to a western doctor he would brush it off as anxiety, depression, a stomach virus, or antibiotics….I was put on antibiotics indefinetly!!! Do you have any idea how dangerous that is?!?!?! How is this person licensed to practice medicine? So it became very clear to me that western doctors are not going to help me or take the time to investigate the cause- just “treating” random symptoms.

So by the grace of God, I started teaching yoga at a healing arts center back in January. There are so many healing practices there that I never knew about ever! The studio owner told me to see her naturopathy that practices/truly heals there. I didn’t know what to expect. The visits are an hour long compared to my 5 minutes on the doctors table. I explained my symptoms and that I felt I was falling apart at the seams. He does a series of pressure point massages and testing my strength before and after each series…..there’s a lot more to it…and he has been doing this forever…I thought he was in his late 50’s- he is 77!! We discovered that I was born with a weak liver. It has been weak for ever. Working overtime and robbing energy from other organs to keep working. Liver is in charge of the connective tissue in our bodies- so it weakened my diaphram which allowed my stomach to push through and hang out up in my chest (causing my shortness of breath) and well as my body’s inability to absorb nutrients. Food was getting stuck in the part above my diaphram and composting!!! So when it finally fell through to pass through my digestive system- my body was trying to digest rotting food. My muscles were absorbing this crap causing muscle and joint pain (also known as fibromayalgia) and that why I was in pain and exhausted. So I had been malnourished for freaking years probably. It’s called a hiatal hernia and from what I am reading, it is very common. He gave me a few exercises to do everyday and had to manually pull my stomach back down to where it is supposed to live. That did not feel awesome but afterwards instantly I could breathe and the pain in my SI joint was gone and my shoulder sockets weren’t in pain, and the headaches stopped. So I guess you could say it was a little wake up call and life changer.

All of this to say that I have a weaker digestive system. Perhaps because it is used to not having to work very much or it has given up because it had to work extra hard when I wasn’t aware of what I was doing to myself. I love to munch on stuff. Peanut pretzels to be more specific. 😉 I knew it wasn’t excellent for me but I had no idea that it was like a poison to me. It occurred to me that I didn’t really know what food was doing what to my body and right now is the time to find out. I don’t know if you have ever known anyone with fibromayalgia before but it is pretty debilitating and some people accept this as a disease they will suffer from for life. Not me. I know that the body is capable of healing itself (and God) but you have to find what it needs. That’s the tricky part because ayurvedically speaking, one man’s medicine is another man’s poison. Some people cannot have ginger, for example, and ginger is commonly thought to be very good for you.

So aside from my peanut butter pretzel addiction, I tend to eat pretty well, I thought. But I still felt this sluggish, unmotivated, foggy feeling a lot even after my treatment. Suddenly, the whole 40 diet kept appearing all over the place. I remember a friend doing it when I lived in Hawaii but it always sounded like something I could never stick to. I looked a little closer into it and found that it really helps to reboot your digestive system. After the 30 days, I could start slowly adding things back into my diet one at a time to find out what exactly I am allergic to or unable to digest easily. It’s not super easy- it really takes planning and work and faith and patience and most importantly THE DESIRE TO FEEL AMAZING! Because you will really really quickly.

So I will explain what it is and what it is not, what I have been eating, and what changes have magically appeared with my dedication to my body.

It is not starvation! I can eat as much as I want of the reccommended things. I will tag the link to the allergy elimination diet my fiance and I have been sticking to at the bottom of this blog. What I am staying away from: gluten, dairy, most grains, legumes, sugar even things like honey and agave, soy, most meat and any meat we eat is organic/grass fed/no antibiotics, no nuts except coconuts, and several oils and margarine. So looking at it in terms of what you can’t have is pretty tough, yeah? Here are some things I can have: Cold pressed olive oil and coconut oil, fish, rice and rice noodles, zucchini noodles, spices, salads with homemade poppyseed dressing, juices, homemade avocado sauce, coconut rice noodle vegi stir fry….. the list goes on!!! At the end I will post another blog with some recipes. I think it’s important to know what vitamins and minerals your body needs by doing some reading so you know what vitamins to supplement for things you are allergic to. I struggled with breakfast- it’s my favorite. I love toast with avo or flaxseed oil “butter”, bacon, cereal… I can’t have gluten. I know a lot of people consider the gluten thing a trend but it’s a real food sensitivity and is hard for my body to digest, breaks my skin out, and leaves me feeling lethargic. Our food unfortunately is being made a little to a lot differently than it was being made ten years ago. New food allergies are not uncommon. Now I start my day with amazing juices that I make. I feel all glowy afterwards. So we cut out major food allergens for 30 days and we are now on day 12. The thing to remember while you are going through it and craving junk or even stuff like beans is that this is not permanent. It would be strange to cut all of that out forever. It’s a jump start for your digestive systems and a way to discover what makes you feel your best. Completely.

Now for the good stuff. How has this positively changed my everyday life: I haven’t felt this amazing in my body in years. I’m waking up and making it to yoga by 7:30 something I have really wanted to do for a while but just could not get my tail to move in the morning. My mind is soooo clear and motivated. In my meditation I can see what my next move is for my career and start putting it into action. I am way more calm- I think because of the lack of processed sugar or the overall feeling of bliss taking over who knows. The anxiety that was seeping into my brain and taking over is gone. It was getting pretty wild. I was becoming insecure about what people thought of me, what I thought of me, and who I am. It was holding me back for sure. I sometimes wouldn’t go to yoga to practice because I didn’t know how the teacher would judge me. If you know me, you know that’s not normal for me. I was beginning to develop a depression. Not having any control over my thoughts or breath. It’s honestly a thing of the past. I have excitement and joy and I dance all the time! I look forward to everything and I am able to appreciate all the hard stuff that led me here. I know its because I cut out the foods that I have a reaction to. Your gut health directly affects your mind health. It is your other brain. Do not treat it like a garbage can and throw whatever is 99 cents at the convenient store in it. You have to live with this body forever! and ever!! I am 31 years old with problems with my body already…can you imagine what you feel like in ten years if you don’t start taking care of your whole body right now?

One last thing to add to your daily routine is to move your body in all the ways you can. For depression, take up a lot of space! For stiff bodies move your spine in all the directions, for anxiety, run even if only for 2 minutes! Dance in the morning when you are getting ready for the day just to move and perhaps to set the stage for the whole day. Moving is as important as sitting still for 5 minutes a day with your precious breath and add the best nourishing foods to your day and in 5 days at the most you will feel and notice a difference in several aspects of your life. Just try and let me know how it goes!

http://www.precisionnutrition.com/elimination-diet – this is the plan we are following in case you are interested in trying. You may say its expensive to eat healthy or organic- but it is cheaper than doctor bills. The truth is you are either creating disease with your food or fighting it. It really is that simple.

I love you guys! Leave me any recipes or feedback that you want! I am open to answer any questions!

Cleansing is not a diet! Cleansing is wonderful and empowering. Diets steal souls.

796

Cleansing is more than a diet. It is actually not a diet at all. Let’s not confuse those two terms. Cleansing is wonderful and you discover new healthy foods that are yummy and you realize you ARE creative and there’s a rainbow…….yeah man, a rainbow. Diets, on the other hand are the devil and nothing good comes from saying you are on a diet. Cleansing is discovery- diets are devil.

I am a big fan of the Wild Rose herbal cleanses. They are pretty simple to take and the 12 day cleanse gives you a pretty extensive list on what to eat and what to steer clear of. I was actually surprised by some of the foods on it. Things that are normally considered healthy like mushrooms, tropical fruit, certain beans… you get it. They explain the reasons for the forbidden foods….they aren’t bad for you- the cleanse will just work better without them.

So I have blogged here before about my first cleanse…check out the “you are what you eat, so don’t be cheap, fat, easy, or greasy.” that I wrote a few years ago. Turns out, cleanses get way way easier every time. Here’s why I believe this to be true: The first cleanse you do will feel like torture in the same way a diet does for the first week. Giving up things sucks. But then you feel the amazing benefits and lightness that comes along with eating as much of the good foods as you want…and once the cleanse is over you no longer have that nagging urge to eat a bag of doritos or fast food (seriously though, just don’t eat fast food. It is disease.).

I am definitely not saying that I only eat healthy all the time now that I have cleansed a few times….um no. I’m still a person that loves sweet stuff. But I try really hard. I make sure I eat green stuff and a piece of fruit everyday. I try to only eat poor choices a small percentage. When I go to the grocery store I only allow myself to buy one “bad for me” thing. Lately, that guilty pleasure has been peanut butter filled pretzels!

So this cleanse I was staying away from sugar, gluten, dairy, and meat. I was really shocked at how easy it felt. I didn’t feel deprived at all. I really only had to pull a few things out of my daily routine like greek yogurt and granola in the mornings. I replaced it with an apple and almond butter. I didn’t have any rice and I replaced it with quinoa. No pasta noodles and instead my sweetie bought me a spiralizer and we made zucchini and squash noodles! I stopped looking at what I couldn’t have and found a bunch of really awesome things that I didn’t know about and that are way more filling and satisfying.

You gain things you didn’t know you were missing. For me, cutting gluten and sugar gives me so much more energy and clearer focus. Cutting dairy is just good. plain and simple dairy is not good for us. I suddenly felt amazing and motivated….food influences our mind as much as it does our body.

I just thought I would give you an idea of some of the things I discovered I love during my cleanse. They are pretty basic things since I like to keep evey thing simple.

Snacks:

apples/ celery and almond butter, baked apples and cinnamon. Avocados.

Breakfast

oatmeal with cooked apples, cinnamon, and a little tiny bit of honey. Chia seed pudding made with almond milk and blueberries. Oranges and bananas.

Dinner

zucchini and squash noodles satueed with garlic and opa squash. Sweet potaoes. Quinoa with mixed veggies and red pepper spice and black beans. Butternut squash soup.

Lunch

Always a salad. Herb salads are super yummy. They almost taste spicy especially when you have cut out some of the extreem flavors. Kale salads with tons of every veggie and a piece of fruit on it. I don’t love salad dressings- it seems I dig the taste of vegis nowadays but I would use a little bit of sunflower seed oil or olive oil and maybe a sprinkle of salt. If you hate salads, try blending one. I love my blender! Kale, strawberry, kiwi, banana, and spinach with a little coconut water! The list goes on people. It is super fun to make yummy things all love filled and happy!

I only drank water. Not the flavored water…that is sugar or even worse a sugar sweetener thing…aka random chemicals. NO. Only water, filtered. You can try to put some cucumbers in some water if you just gotta. Drink as much water as you possibly can. Drink so much that it’s almost weird. yeah. Do It!

So that’s it. Just a simple little 10 day cleanse. No not every day was easy. Yes I wanted to cheat and eat peanut butter. But it’s 10 days. That’s it. And the benefits you feel and see will have you hooked on health. It makes you feel skinny and strong. It makes you think you can accomplish anything. Because you can. The mid day fog thing doesn’t happen as much without as many sugar or caffeine crashes. I can’t even list all of the benefits you get from loving yourself and eating like it. Just give yourself 10 days…buy an herbal cleanse. I really dig the Wild Rose brand….but honestly you can do a cleanse without the herbs if you don’t feel like investing the 20-30 dollars on the kit. Create a eating plan for 10 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Eating nice yummy things for your body takes time and love and planning. Be prepared love bugs. Bring snacks. Eat as much of these healthy things as you want. (Easy on the fruit though…it is sugar still.) Prep for this little adventure and soon it will become like 2nd nature.

You can totally do this. You will love it, the feeling, the challenge, the results. You will totally be awesome! I love you!!! ❤

Our limitless potential

Our limitless potential

A year ago this was, in my mind, not possible….but look at me go! Everything you can ever imagine is attainable. First know what you want, be persistent in pursuing it, be resilient to get back up if you should fall a few times, work hard most importantly, very very hard towards your desire and watch the beautiful steps that unfold on your way to it.
I am by no means incredibly successful but I am most certainly living a beautiful life that I am most grateful for.
I moved to Hawaii from Brooklyn New York almost 3 years ago. Ran away from the snow storms and a broken heart. After a year of saying I wanted to take a yoga teacher training I finally decided to go for it. It was a whole lot of money and I had no idea how I was going to pay for it and still eat…I am still not sure how I did, living in Hawaii is not a cheap thrill. Not only did I have to find a way to pay and survive but I also was going to be working at my restaurant job about 10 days a month only and for 5 months! So the non essentials were the first to go… I quit smoking cigarettes, yes me! After 13 years of loving to hate them! It happened my first week of teacher training. I haven’t even had one single puff since then (a year and 2 months). Because I gave up cigarettes I also had to give up drinking. They seem to go so well together and drinking without a cig seemed to really piss me off so no drinks for a while. Boom, an extra 300 to 400 a month saved right away…yeah…holy shit! Didn’t mean I had a bunch of extra money to spend on nonsense, it just meant maybe I could eat everyday…maybe. When you cut these negative things out and replace them with something like yoga your energy level literally sky rockets! I was bike riding all the time, swimming, laughing loudly, writing…you know, like a living human being should be doing especially while living in a place as beautiful as Hawaii. Going to work was harder now that I had found this peaceful lifestyle but I learned to find something I liked in everyone…even the people that you can hardly stand. Maybe because of this new outlook I became sweeter or more sincere, or maybe because I was there less I was calmer and easier, or maybe God was making things nice for me so I could pursue what I think I am supposed to do… but people were giving me so much money!! I sometimes didn’t know why people would tip me outrageous amounts of money at my restaurant job! Again, none of it was extra money that I could buy anything unnecessary with but I was becoming less stressed about paying for my training. Thank you God, I know that was you.
I went through the whole 5 months of teacher training which is a whole other post. I was challenged, sometimes I was pissed at myself, sometimes I was pissed at the teachers challenging me, sometimes I would go home feeling like I was living in some dream world that doesn’t actually exist like a unicorn. And throughout those months of training I became this other version of myself that I had never met before. I like her. She is really nice, calm, understanding, loving, forgiving, hell of a dreamer type of girl.
I used to wonder if I would ever be coordinated enough to balance my weight on my head and forearms, keep my feet from cycling, engage my core to hug everything in, and then just be there in my excitement of reaching this once unattainable super frustrating dream. And that is the essence of yoga- to attain the unattainable.
Nothing worth it is ever easy….

This is going to be my blog to talk about the transformation into healthy living, my constant cooking blunders (I am so bad), new cleanses I am trying, new yoga moves I am learning, my life becoming a teacher, new recipes…and I love questions, challenges, and feedback. I will try out anything you want to know more about and tell you all about my experience with it! I’m looking forward to sharing and hearing new ideas and insights from anyone and everyone!
~Love love love~
