Through conversation, I realized this month marks my 5 year teaching anniversary. That immediately put me in an intense introspective/reminiscing state of mind. I’m in a much different place than I thought I would be. I have accomplished every goal I have set for myself… at 26 years old. I don’t feel enlightened yet. I […]Read more "Reflection"
I’ve been working on a concept in my own personal practice/self studies. The concept is a combination of many concepts because that seems to be how my brain works. It all comes back to this. Injuries from yoga (and I’d even put all movement activities in here) aren’t a badge of honor or a trophy […]Read more "Self Study"
The art of individuality. Navigating these realms within myself is such a fulfilling adventure. Witnessing patterns, observing what causes old habits to resurface, and patiently acknowledging my triggers. This process is tricky terrain. At one point it threw me into a deep darkness for at least a week. But my inner guidance, intuition and Goddess […]Read more "The Art of Individuality"
I’m just going to cut right to it… Christian terminology triggers me. As soon as I hear the words “God” “Christ” “worship” even “church”… I get uncomfortable. I start to feel panicked and begin to shut down. I remember, many years ago, being so excited to share a spiritual book with my Grandpa, who was […]Read more "Path to Love"
I have spent a good amount of my life following others. I learn through observing and reading and repeating. So when I would see someone that’s perceived as beautiful, successful (or whatever it is that I was seeking), I would put that person on a pedestal. I had to be like this person […]Read more "Trust Yourself"
Let’s change the conversation. It breaks my heart to hear “Oh, I’ll love myself when I’m thinner” and all the shame that comes with being softer. As if life will only be perfect and wonderful when your body is “perfect.” But here’s the kicker… It’s never perfect. Once those 10 pounds are gone, you find […]Read more "What Feels Good?"
I’ve spent the past 6 months not writing much… not making many goals… not feeling any kind of creative spark. Creativity would greet me every once in a while, but I was caught up in upcoming change… and the stress that comes along with it. So I just didn’t give myself the space to […]Read more "Hurry Up and Slow Down"
Sensory overload. To be a light in times of darkness. To be a positive presence in times of pain, fear, anger, frustration… To feel so deeply that all the pain in the world stabs your heart, but you can’t ignore it. You can’t block it out or turn it off. You have to feel it…. […]Read more "Sensory Overload"
I like words. Words seem to like me. But in this instance, finding a way to put the mess of words in my heart in a methodical way that would make sense is difficult. So. However these words come out…is how they’ll come out. I never really edit what I write because it takes […]Read more "And Here We Go"
Be here now. Can you have too many favorites? I don’t think so. This is one of my favorite practices. Because there is no where else to be than now. When you live in this moment. Right here. Right now. What else can be more amazing? Even if this moment is not picture perfect (no […]Read more "Woah."
