Summer Solstice

Fixing my floral fro for today’s solstice and the upcoming new moon. 🌸 That feeling that you’re ready for change or moving towards your potential is POWERFUL right now. Could it be caused by the summer solstice energy☀️? Could it be the new moon🌑? Could it be we’re halfway through 2017 and feeling the need…

Oh, you wanna steal my joy?

  Hanuman is a mischevious monkey god in the Hindu mythology.  We all know monkeys are sneaky little buggers.  That is no surprise.  But the other gods were not. having. it. The gods were over Hanuman and the trouble he was getting himself into.  They were all, “Alright Hanuman.  You want to continue to act…

I’m good. I don’t need insurance.

I stopped to check my email today (totally just wanting to procrastinate) and saw that it’s almost time to renew my liability insurance.  Liability insurance is a MUST if you’re even thinking about teaching yoga.  Maybe you just want to sub a few classes here and there? Get it.  Here are some reasons why: Having…

It doesn’t end at 200 Hours

Your yoga training doesn’t end when you walk out with that 200 Hour Certification in your hand.  Oh no, my child.  Your training is just beginning. Whether you cram your 200 hours on a beautiful island in 30 days or you spread it out over the course of a year, it is not enough.  Of…

I have to audition to TEACH YOGA?!?!

My first audition as a yoga teacher, I was terrified.  I hadn’t auditioned for anything since high school drama club.  I’m now sitting in a room of aspiring teachers waiting for the audition to start.  Was it only a few weeks ago that I celebrated my 200-hour graduation, how could I be here already? The…

Wish I Knew Wednesday 

Tax season is officially over!!!! Hopefully it is for most of you 🤗 2016 was the first year I filed my taxes as an independent contractor.  Making the big leap to leave the 40 hour grind to start my yoga teacher training was thrillingly nerve-wracking.  Did I really just quit my job to do this?…

Resolutions

I always railed against New Year resolutions. I was not jumping on the “New Year, New Me” bandwagon, puhleeze 🙄.   Idk what happened but an idea of community shifted my perspective. We make resolutions or create goals for ourselves during many personal milestones. Birthdays. Seasons changing. New job. New home. We make a promise to…

Farewell 2016

I think we can all agree that 2016 was pretty shitty for the majority of us.  I would like someone to do a study on the amount of deaths this year compared to 2015.  Especially in regards to our beloved celebrities.  I am not a big celebrity gawker and could care less about some of…

You’re crying?!?!?

Today is another day of processing my feelings on this election. Prior to Election Day, the conversation was how do we connect with the disenfranchised voter supporting him?  We realized, here are a group of people who feel deserted and left behind.  It’s important to reach out and rebuild positive relationships.  The conversation was of…

On an election

Yesterday, I had hope.  Today, I woke up in fear.  An American born woman of immigrant parents.  A woman of color.  A woman who believes I ALONE make decisions that regard MY body.  A woman who loves my LGBT family with ALL of my ❤️.  A woman who has been the victim of sexual assault….

Let’s take care of ourselves

I’m getting caught in the news cycle.  It’s been vicious and my sanity is bordering on nuclear reactor level meltdown.  I check many of the boxes for this targeted hatemongering.  My old wounds are reappearing after Friday’s revelations.  I have to stop.  The anger in me is leading to hatred and the hatred could lead…
