Experience Mantra 2016: Teaching yoga & learning to surf

In 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions for the new year. Usually by February those resolutions are nowhere to be found. It suited me better to come up with “a statement or slogan repeated frequently” throughout the year that would lead my choices and experiences. 2015 was the year of No Fear where I purposely set out to tackle things that scared the shit out of me. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, Experience came to me.… Read more

Experience Mantra 2016: Muay Thai Kickboxing

As you may recall last year in 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions or goals for the new year. 2015 was the year of No Fear. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, Experience came to me. It’s sort of a continuation of no fear, to experience brand new things that either I’ve always wanted to do or that I never thought about doing but would be interesting, fun, and enriching in some way.… Read more

Experience Mantra 2016: AcroYoga

As you may recall last year in 2015 I decided to start setting mantras instead of resolutions or goals for the new year. 2015 was the year of No Fear. It went smashingly. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, Experience came to me. It’s sort of a continuation of no fear, to experience brand new things that either I’ve always wanted to do or that I never thought about doing but would be interesting, fun, and enriching in some way. … Read more

On weight gain and yoga

If you didn’t know I turned 37 last month. That isn’t old and it isn’t young. It’s kind of a pointless age really, but a nice right in the middle of my prime kind of number. The more I talk about my age and say/type/read the number the more I get comfortable with it. Because I’ve been struggling with aging (I’ll have to save that for another post!). One number I never rarely pay attention to is the number on the scale.… Read more

Travel log: Bangkok isn’t that bad!

The last time I was in Bangkok over 5 years ago it was dirty, smelly, crazy, loud, you constantly got harassed on the street, and ripped off. Just take a look at this travel log from October 2010 of my first impressions. When I stepped out of the airport in Bangkok this time no taxi drivers swarmed me. I wasn’t greeted with the symphony of horns beeping and “taxi, taxi, need a taxi miss, where you go miss, taxi, taxi”. Military rule might not be good for everyone but it is great for tourists.… Read more

Travel log: I fell in love with the little island of Ko Phangan

My original plan was to spend 2 weeks on Ko Phangan. I left early to go to Bangkok for various reasons, like spending too much money, wanting to spend time with friends, and cook my own food again. I have a little regret about that decision because it is such a wonderful little island I could probably spend 6 months on. There’s a good chance I’ll be visiting again! It took quite a bit of travel to get to this beautiful island off the east coast of Thailand.… Read more
