Rediscover Everything

I feel like I’m at the age where I’m no longer in discovery of new things. I’ve seen mountains, I’ve learned about the Voyeger 1 & 2, I can cook well, and now I’m just cruising.

And it’s so easy to say “oh I know everything I need to know for my life” when I’m faced with possible growth and opportunity. But what I’m really saying is “I know enough to make the minimum of this part of my life and I’m choosing to stick with it.” Like my friend who settles for making bad tasting coffee every morning because she doesn’t move herself to discovering better coffee.

Yuck. NO. STOP IT NOW. There’s magic and growth still available to you. Continue to learn by being open to REDISCOVERING EVERYTHING you do. Start by making small changes to be in the EXPLORATION of your life. Switch your toothbrush to your other hand. Rearrange your furniture. Drive a different route to home from work. Make better coffee! Read more “Rediscover Everything”

Christmas Break

I’m taking a short Christmas break from Teaching yoga to travel through the Western USA and hike national parks, sleep in 11 degree weather, and eat out of he back of a campervan.

I’ll be back teaching regularly 1/6/2018. Until then, here’s a playlist of sweet soultry jams. Miss you my Sunday crew, Happiest of Holidays and Happy New Year, too. See you all soon.

What are you REALLY committed to?

Why do I go to yoga?To work out.

Why do I want to work out? To stay healthy.

Why do I want to stay healthy? To live longer.

Why do I want to live longer? To experience more of the world!

Why do I want to experience more of the world? (Because Houston is such a paradise right? Yeah? Maybe? Haha) To learn from people and cultures and share experiences with others.

Listen To Your Body

You know that feeling when you agree to something and all of a sudden your body slumps over and you make a sour face. Ya. You made a choice with your brain that your body is rejecting. Meaning you justified what you just agreed to, even though you really don’t want to do it.

I KNOW IT SUCKS. I do it all the time too. Like when I justify going to yoga instead of doing my real estate exam prep, and I walk to my car after class with my tail between my legs in shame. Or like when I agree to hang out with someone who I have guilted myself into hanging out with because I want to be liked. Or when they get my coffee order wrong and I don’t have the confidence to say something about it, so I’ve got this face of failure as I walk out.

DON’T LET THIS BE YOU. Recognize the signs when your body is telling you NOOO! It can be as obvious as a slumped body or sour face. So, in moments where you’re feeling a bit awkward about a choice, close your eyes, tune yourself inward with a deep breath, and listen for your gut feeling. You have the answer in your body. I promise.
