I am not going to lie! I cried a lot! And, then I cried some more. Tears started to flood my face when we decided to move from the house we bought shortly after we got married, over 13 years ago! With all this emotion you would think that I was moving far, far, far […]
Searching for Perfection
Um, Om, Hmm, this is a tough topic and one that a lot of us deal with on and off the mat. We want to be perfect! I am not suggesting that we should not have goals or standards, but are yours so far out of control that you are actually a self-bully? Do you […]
Finding the Courage to Fly Forward
When I finished my undergraduate degree, I only had one regret; I did not study abroad. When I finished graduate school, I had the same regret. I made the same mistake twice. It never seemed to be the right time. I never seemed to have enough money and I never seemed to have enough courage […]
I LOST IT!
I lost it!!!!! I could not sleep and it was hard to think of anything else. My mind was spinning out of control. I lost my mind over something so insignificant, yet felt so important. As I packed for my end-of-the year hiatus to the beach, I could not find my favorite bikini (in the […]
End of the Summer Cleanse
Summer brings farmers’ markets filled with fresh fruits and vegetables and perfect weather for outdoor excursions and workouts. It also fills our calendar with picnics, festivals and beach days. Late nights, extra cocktails and some undesirable food choices may leave you feeling less than optimal. Here are my end of the summer clean up and […]
Live Your Life!
It’s my birthday on Monday and I am already excited. Why? Because I love my life and I am not afraid to admit it. I am ready to not only celebrate me, but where I am in my life and all the years to come! I am ready to celebrate the awesome people who have […]
Happy & Healthy
I was sitting in this same spot almost exactly a year ago. But, there is a big difference. My heart was broken along with three different parts of my right foot. It was one of the most painful fractures I endured. With each step I felt tremendous physical and emotional pain. My battle with my […]
Where Do You Need To Be?
For me, water soothes, calms and energizes me. When near the water, I feel invigorated, yet peaceful enough to sit in stillness for hours. My mind seems clear and my heart feels fulfilled. I feel at home. For you, water may initiate fear and anxiety. Sitting near water may be the last place you would […]
Be Quiet. Listen. What Do You Hear?
Last Friday, I spent the day with my awesome friend Grace Smith, owner and founder of Grace Smith Coaching, where we didn’t talk to each other, but rather we stopped and listened to each other. Think about this statement for a minute… How often do we participate in dialogue with others and ourselves, but don’t […]
Cleansing Your Soul
I spend a lot of time talking about proper food choices and cleaning out the kitchen, but what happens when our bellies are filled with wholesome food, we sleep the recommended 7-9 hours and we include yoga asana (the physical practice) and exercise into our daily lives and we are still off? What is creating […]
