The most wonderful and unexpected thing has happened within the last 4 months. After selling my business, moving countries and taking a break from teaching yoga I decided to take some space. Easing off has allowed a buffer zone of sorts. A space to steep, digest and reflect. And then to return with new eyes, a more nourishing perspective and a softer heart.Read More
Joy doesn’t only exist outside the 9-5. Or on a beach. Or within being your own boss. I think sometimes we just forget how happiness is found in the most utterly ordinary of things.Read More
Being in a yoga studio does not eliminate the concept of boundaries. Being in a yoga studio is not a safe space or a sanctuary for everyone. Being a yoga teacher does not allow you to do whatever the hell you want (regardless of which gender the teacher or student is).Read More
You are not what you do. You are not what you don’t do.
You are not the job title. You are not a labeled societal sub group.
You are not your personality;
You are not a happy person, a depressed person or an angry person.
You are not a definition of your own qualities.
Who are you?
Lately it’s been less about letting go, and more about learning and integration.
And by it I mean life, yoga and the self. It’s really all the same.
When people hear I teach yoga I often get responses such as:
“I’m so bad at yoga.”
“I’m not flexible enough to do yoga.”
“I would love to come to class, but I can’t touch my toes.” After getting these types of responses, more than usual lately, there is something I would really like to share.

May we welcome and encourage our brothers and sisters, our global family, to do the same. For if we don’t, we’re letting ourselves and each other die, before we ever really feel aliveRead More
From the job that we have and the lifestyle we live, to the people we hang out with, why are we doing it? Is it what we actually want to be doing? Or is it what we think we should be doing?Read More

Relax your shoulders
Release your jaw
Allow your gaze
To sweetly soften
There is an immediate and radical shift in our lives that occurs the moment we decide to step out of fear and into a place of authenticity. When we stop letting our inner critic dictate what we say and do.
He said he thought I was one of those people that always had all their sh*t together. One of those people who really had it all figured out.Read More
No one wants to feel like they just ate Thanksgiving dinner, after every single meal.
What we really share the most with the people around us, is in fact, our inner stateRead More
The experience I had when it shifted from logic to full body-mind-soul integration was easily one of the most powerful and wonderfully overwhelming experiences I’ve ever had. It was an experience I’ll never forget.Read More
Remember that you are not always supposed to know.
Remember that you are not always supposed to have it all figured out.
Remember that there is not one way, one truth or one ultimate meaning for being here.
I had the most liberating experience of my life, in the last place I ever could’ve imagined.Read More
In a day and age of extreme consumer culture and an abundance of comparison generators (hello, social media), I think the reminder that we’ll never get it done is more important than ever before.Read More
