Experience Mantra 2016: Learning Spanish in Costa Rica

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 sh*t out of me. When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, New Experiences came to me.… Read more

Why I decided to travel for 2 years?

If you follow me on any social media outlets you know I’ve been in Costa Rica studying Spanish for the last month. When I started my new retreat business earlier this year, I thought for sure this was my ticket to traveling full time as a career. It hasn’t gone exactly as I planned, but that hasn’t stopped me from deciding to travel the world for the next couple of years. My goal is to lead retreats while traveling too. Keep an eye out on where the next retreat will be later this year (Central or South America is on the list & next year I’ll have retreats in Europe!).… Read more

Experience Mantra 2016: Teaching yoga & learning to surf

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
