tuning in

It was a typical Friday morning, as I awoke to a stacked schedule with 5 classes on the docket before 12pm. Like any other day, I woke up late, thoroughly enjoying every last minute in my warm bed before frantically jumping up to pack my bag. I stripped down to put on my yoga gear-Continue reading “tuning in”

habits & the inevitable ruts we dig

As I sat down on the porch this morning to read, I stumbled upon the quote by Miguel De Unamuno, “To fall into a habit is to begin to cease to be.” I wrestled with this statement for the next hour. Sure, some habits are great. But more often than not, when asked about ourContinue reading “habits & the inevitable ruts we dig”

life: your movie reel

Your mind creates the world you live in. Quiet literally, you are the director, star actor, supporting roles and extras for you own personal movie. And you get to choose: What reality do you wish to create? What perspective will you take? Sometimes it is hard to see the silver lining. Life catches us in negativity,Continue reading “life: your movie reel”

the continued journey to living in the present​

As I sat outside Sip & Ship, a wonderful locally owned coffee/shipping store, I sipped my hemp milk latte. Drake’s beats played in my earbuds as I pulled out my notebook to write- about what I felt was prudent for me & my community on this day- living in the present moment. As I putContinue reading “the continued journey to living in the present​”

i don’t know

Thinking back on my middle school years still, makes me feel a bit uncomfortable. It is such a time of change and transformation. (Why don’t they have a movie that explained you’re supposed to be awkward then, that plays in health class?) As my peers and I geared up, from leaving the “elementary nest” to transition into ourContinue reading “i don’t know”

my morning ritual

You might say I am a dreamer. Meaning, I live most often in my mind as opposed to in my feet. I am constantly thinking, creating and dreaming up ideas about life/ the future- which I feel is great- for me. But sometimes, it can be unsettling taking me out of the present moment. YouContinue reading “my morning ritual”

I want…

As I meandered through the grocery store, I turned the corner to see two children hanging off the front end of what appeared to be their mother’s cart. They were laughing loudly while simultaneously hitting each other… ‘boys will be boys’, I thought. She calmly pushed the cart past me, picking up things here andContinue reading “I want…”

my struggle with -being present-

  The number of articles and books I’ve read on the idea of “being present” would qualify me as a curious researcher in the field. Yet until last week, I wasn’t quite able to wrap my head around the practice. Chances are, this will change again and I will lose the answer that once satisfiedContinue reading “my struggle with -being present-“

balance during VATA season

From late fall to early winter the western hemisphere is in the energetic Vata season. When out of balance in this season you may feel excess stress, restlessness, digestive challenges, weakness, cold, anxiousness, or even experience insomnia. Energy can seem to come in sprits leading to burn out and fatigue. To balance Vata, make choicesContinue reading “balance during VATA season”

SuperMoon in taurus

Tomorrow marks our next Full Moon, this time supersized to the visual eye from the earth, hence the name SUPERMOON. During this coming week, you may feel a pull to the deep-rooted questions around ‘who you truly are’. These inquiries are awfully tricky because our first reaction typically is to define ourselves by our jobsContinue reading “SuperMoon in taurus”
