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”

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”

how we start our day

When my alarm goes off in the morning one of my first thoughts is, ‘how much more sleep can I get’. After doing the calculation, I lay back in bed, attempting to fall back asleep. This doesn’t happen simultaneously so as I lie there, I like to set an intention for the day. My intentionContinue reading “how we start our day”

mindfulness

I’ve been thinking, talking, and writing a lot about “being present” as it is, more than ever, a reoccurring theme in my life. Fall is this natural time of “airiness” with the wind swirling and leaves falling we feel a sense of movement. Any time we experience movement, it has the ability to uproot us,Continue reading “mindfulness”

trust

If you find yourself continually getting frustrated in the search for what’s next, you are not alone. Occasionally the vision is delicately placed in plain site for us to see and other times it’s hidden deep within. In the later scenario, the search can begin to feel pointless and full of dead ends, making usContinue reading “trust”

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”

“don’t be selfish”

As a child, I was concerned about acting “selfish”. My parents, who are phenomenal loving parents, knew nothing better than to scold me for acting self-centered at times. I admit, there were days when I didn’t quite think of others. Shit, we all have our days… but this didn’t mean that I didn’t care forContinue reading ““don’t be selfish””

connection

Connection has come up for me several times this week. And when I think about it, at the root of connection is the relationship we have with ourselves. In yoga, we call this relationship Svadhaya, or self study. When we are able to peel away the layers, we get down to the juicy REAL emotions andContinue reading “connection”

courage

  This month I celebrate a year and a half of teaching yoga. Best decision of my life. Life pre-yoga was very different for me. I worked as an Associate Wealth Management Advisor at a finance management company. The company always liked to have mantras for the year; one year it was “Courage to Ask”.Continue reading “courage”
