Mindfulness: In Love AF

Posted by in Mindfulness

  So I fell in love a few years back. I fell in love with a person that is probably from a different planet than me. Polar opposites. I love the spirit, universe, magic, horoscopes, unicorns, rocks, crystals, jesus, buddha, sage and love on top of love. He loves facts, math and science. I love nature and spaciousness, he loves condos (like seriously dude loves condos). I love prayer and meditation, he thinks religion and devotion is ludicrous. I love Drake, he hates Drake. I hate flip flops, he loves…read more

Restorative Yoga: The Slow Yoga Arts

Posted by in Paths Of Yoga

As a yoga teacher, I get asked a lot about all the kinds of yoga that make you sweat, but few new students inquire about restorative yoga. Until they break a bone or tear a ligament or need a hip replacement, then suddenly, their ego sufficiently beaten down, they humbly show up at a restorative class.

Have Baby, Will Travel: Holbox

Posted by in Travel Mom

One of the most challenging issues of travelling with a baby is how little of my previous knowledge is actually useful now. I have backpacked through Europe in the 90s, traveled South East Asia, lived off grid, and even WWOOF’d – you’d think I was some kind of traveling expert right? With a kid, all that shit goes out the window. The beautiful sleepy island of Holbox is a perfect example of how your old expertise can ruin your new mom life. Nestled north of the Yucatan, Holbox is the super trendy sleepy…read more

Mindfulness: Drake AF

Posted by in Mindfulness

I love Drake. It’s not a romantic love for me. It’s more like I like watching you grow kinda love. It’s like, can I be in OVO kinda love. It’s like, Drake you gotta work on your anxiety kinda love. It’s like, we should be friends kinda love. It’s a fantasy fan-hard love. It’s extra but it’s love. Dudes I date are pretty much never into this. But there are two aspects of this fan-hard relationship I find complicated. The first part is about the way that I consume and…read more
