When you receive a feeling or sensation in the body, can you express that, in that moment, and not after? Or do you tend to question why you're having that feeling? There must be a reason, right!? And is it right? What if you subtracted the question 'why' and allowed your body to express the … Continue reading Subtract the why
I'm not a victim of my circumstances. I create my reality, every step of the way. I have chosen and choose, what today and tomorrow looks like. The way I think, speak and act is within my control, it is within my power. I get to choose how I do this. The word that has … Continue reading 2020 Vision: To Create
My eyes can hardly open they're so swollen from tears. I lay naked, wrapped in the blanket that still smells of you. I'm grieving the loss of something I haven't yet experienced, but I so desperately want to. I want Love so bad, yet it's too intense for me to receive.

I'm … Continue reading How to cultivate peace in a western world
When I graduated from my Yoga Teacher Training, I thought that I needed to be more "Yogic" before I can teach. Many of my fellow friends and teachers agreed with this feeling of doubt or unworthiness. How can I teach if I can't do this pose, or how can I talk about the scriptures when … Continue reading What is “real” Yoga anyway…
I needed help. I craved guidance. I needed someone to tell me what to do. Because for the first time in my life I felt what it was like to have a body.
