Travel log: Colombia & it’s many struggles

In November, I started my journey to Colombia in Medellin. Medellin, as the 2nd largest city in Colombia, is breathtaking. This bustling metroplex is buried in a valley so you are surrounded 360 degrees by city views. I think the Paisas (local people to this area) do not understand the beauty that engulfs them every single day. But maybe they do for the torrid past of Medellin is buried deep in their hearts and minds. In general, people of Medellin are kind and helpful.… 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

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.

When I dug deep to find the mantra for 2016, Experience came to me.… Read more

Second triathlon scratched off the list!

Whew it’s over! I made it through my second triathlon. As I wrote in this post I decided to do the sprint since I didn’t have enough time to properly train for the olympic distance. I’m so glad I made that decision because once I started my training program after the bodybuilding show I realized that A. I’m not a fan of endurance training and B. I didn’t train enough period. The training plan you see in that post was not followed!… Read more

Why Western Medicine Sucks & You Should Be Your Own Doctor

I’m on vacation this week! Woot! I really needed a getaway and heard that Tree of Life (Dr. Gabriel Cousens retreat center) had a Thanksgiving day celebration. “It’s only a 15 hour drive” I thought to myself. I can handle that. Since I’m passing through El Paso and met the lovely Lisa from the Vegetarian Society of El Paso at the Chili Cook-off, she helped me set up a book signing here. So I’m here in El Paso, staying with my friend’s parents who just went vegan a week or so ago, relaxing and such.… Read more
