Yoga Trade Gets Us Started

When Jenny suggested spending her birthday in Spain, I had no idea how we would afford such a trip, given our financial facts which included my decision to leave the business community and teach yoga for the last several years and Jenny’s continuing education, pursuing her doctorate in education, with…

Strengthen your Core with Power Yoga

To me, yoga isn’t about looking a certain way, getting a better body or being a pose master. Yoga is about reconnecting with your mind, body and soul–and if physical changes accompany that, it’s a bonus. One of those sweet extras is a stronger core. I teach power yoga and…

Gratefulness- Kṛtajñatā

My Sweet Spot

Colorful sarongs line the streets as smiling locals appear from their shops, and ancient temples garnished with Ganesha nestled into lush gardens, seduce the Western eye. The island…

Kshama

Kshama. Be here. Be now. Be present. Be patient. Release time from your thoughts, this moment only exists now. Have patience when you eat, talk and most of all, listen. Be patient and tolerant towards others. Be tolerant with yourself and your body. Don’t expect the entire world to adjust…

Transitions

In yoga, like in real life, breakthroughs are exciting. The first time your legs float into headstand or fly to chattaranga from crow brings a rush of energy and lightness not unlike the feeling of landing that dream job or a first date with a person with whom you just…

The Power of Meditation

Imagine waking up in a field of sunflowers, lying on a soft patch of grass with the sun’s warm rays kissing your skin. Where you choose to go from this paradise is up to you. You can stay in the bliss that stillness offers you or wander around the field…

I Believe In Mermaids

I took this picture quite a while ago, at the beach where I grew up. When I was a little girl, my mom always took my sister and me to the beach and we would see this mermaid engraved in a rock, right at the water. It has something beautifully…

10 Tips for Teaching Yoga Abroad

In 2010, I was a newly graduated yoga teacher and a bit overwhelmed with the competitiveness of yoga studio teaching jobs in California.  It was never my intention to teach yoga as a “job”, but after going through teacher training I wanted to share what I loved. I have always…

5 Ways to Apply Yoga into Your Life

A common misconception of yoga is that it is a physical practice (asana); a form of exercise. Well you aren’t completely wrong. Yoga means “union” – which means we are uniting all parts of ourselves when we practice, not just the physical body. This means yoga is so much more…

Chasing Waterfalls (and the lessons learned)

I had the best intentions before setting off on a 2 month journey to Costa Rica. I wanted to explore a new place, meet new people, hone in on my yoga practice, maybe learn to surf, get a smoking hot body (from all the yoga and surfing) and play with…
