I debated. Bali is a long way to travel from Los Angeles for just a week, I had never been to Asia, the flight would be the longest I’d ever taken and I didn’t have any extra time off work for further exploration. But a quick trip was better than none, and I was looking forward to a dedicated week of daily yoga, eating healthy and relaxation...
And size matters; too short just isn’t enough. Too long kinda hurts. You know it’s true. The length of your profile matters. We like it just right.
Gaining Yogic Wisdom While Sailing Down the Pacific West Coast. I’m a little bit of everything; a yogi, sailor and teacher. In October, I sailed from Vancouver, Canada to Ensenada, Mexico to travel and teach yogic knowledge. When I enrolled at a new studio that was close to the boat before leaving, I thought it [...]

Date a Boy who Serves. A dear friend of mine just shared an article “Date a Boy who Travels” on her Facebook Wall: “Love this.” I didn’t love it. But I do get it. We all like the idea of dating Indiana Jones, or one of those sixpacked boys from the cover of Outside, or [...]
Your weakness is your strength. I woke up this morning with eyes practically swollen shut from all the crying I had done the night before, when I had gone through the oddest experience. I’ve moved around a little bit in my life, but this is the first place that my husband and I really have ever [...]
I needed this today. Maybe you do, too. “A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, [...]
As I watch the balloons, I realize I have learned my first life lesson on the road: it is not what life brings to me, but what I bring to life that makes it an adventure.
"Shedding our skin is one of the most vulnerable acts we’ll ever engage in. Some of us prefer to stay swaddled in stagnation while others try releasing this protective covering prematurely. The journey of life is finding the balance between hibernation and emergence; between hiding and showing our faces, our true faces."

Break free of the human zoo and learn to move your body the way it was meant to be moved! This is an approach to training that promises to completely redefine the way we think about fitness. It is adaptive, playful, and based on principles of human evolution. It centers around teaching useful movement skills that can actually be [...]
Many times, I was the only pale face, the stranger, the curiosity, and felt out of place. But I wasn’t lonely with my camera as company. Through my lenses, I could see better and could look more carefully.
I’m not even sure you could call them waves; whitewater, perhaps—class six. Definitely no sets. Bummer conditions for a first day out, but not for our resolve to do this thing, this birthday thing. To see her surf was my wish for me to join her, hers, and so it was that we agreed to [...]
Step by step, I want to progress on the new path that brought me a new horizon, a new perspective, a new strength and balance. Step by step, I want to become and find out who I really am, get rid of all these layers of conditioning, wrong patterns and reactions (source of so much misery)... patiently, calmly, mindfully.
If there’s one thing that I know for sure, it’s that whether you believe you can or you can’t, you’re right. Regardless of the hand life’s dealt you, regardless of the body you were gifted, your emotional composition, regardless of the tragedy, the heartbreak and the hardship you’ve experienced, regardless of the habits you’ve formed, [...]
No one had ever appreciated these places with me. No one looked at barns and saw beauty. No one looked at the night sky with Orion's belt shining in it and the silhouette of three pine trees and saw the trinity and my name in them. I thought I had met the love of my life. I still think I did meet the love of my life.
