Life is a complicated rollercoaster! But it’s also a beautiful journey if we let it be! I’m not a psychologist, or a counselor, or a life coach or anything related. But I am a grown woman who’s been through a thing or two and learned through trial and error what life is really all about. And, of course I’m not finished!
What has truly helped me see the bigger picture is YOGA. It is not a means to become more flexible, to be able to do amazingly complex poses, or be fit- for me, it is a way of living. All of my experiences are ones we can relate to- but how about considering that any one of these stories or entries are also related to a much bigger divinity which is yoga? 🙂

Everything began the day I saw that Polaroid picture. I must have been about 13 and I was wearing a bikini. I remember looking at this picture and for the first time becoming self-aware and criticizing my transforming pre-pubescent body into womanhood. I didn’t like what I saw: a chubbier, sillier, more awkward and almostContinue reading “Discovering Female Sexuality”
Supongo que todo empezó el día qué me vi en bikini en una foto polaroid. Tenía alrededor de 13 años. Nunca antes había ocurrido que le diera importancia a tener que cambiar algo de mi cuerpo, ni preocuparme de ello de ninguna manera. En esa foto vi una chica algo gordita; con algo más deContinue reading “La Historia de Mi Vergüenza”
When I was a child, I watched all those Disney movies. You know the ones where the lady meets her knight and shining armor? I grew up on TV programs like Saved by the Bell and 90210 and dreamed of the typical American things: to grow up and be able to drive, to wear redContinue reading “Defining Relationships”
Egomaniac. Egotistical. Superegoist. Having a big fat ego. Wait, what does having an ego even mean? When we use the word “ego” we often automatically think of people that are self-centered or pompous, self-serving and sometimes even narcissistic. They might like to toot their own horn, be a bit of a braggart and be wrappedContinue reading “Hello, Ego.”
A full intermediate “coffee cup” class! I had to edit some things down, and so my head is cut off in a few segments. I’m not used to filming longer sequences on my own, but I had to share today’s beautiful fiery practice. You can also find the video on my YouTube Channel 😁😊 NamasteContinue reading “Hatha Raja Yoga Flow”
“Dear You. I am writing to tell you that I’ve moved on. It took me a long time, and even though I still feel moments of anger and sorrow, I can finally say that I no longer love you. I lived trapped with you in a roller coaster of emotions; between love and fear, anxietyContinue reading “I forgive you.”
When I mention balance you might be imagining a tight-rope walker in the circus balancing across a fine rope and teetering slightly from side-to-side. Or maybe just the simple act of balancing on your tippy-toes. Or perhaps you’re thinking of balance in terms of a healthy lifestyle: the balance between exercising and lying around onContinue reading “The Gift of Balance”
You might not be getting started with yoga for the very first time, rather, you might just be looking for a fresh start. You may be dreaming of getting back on the mat after a small (or big) break, or thinking about picking back up on your meditation habit that you left in the dustContinue reading “Starting Over and Other Imperfections.”
A life-long learning of acceptance.

Yoga doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated. Maybe you’re here because you want to improve your flexibility or maybe you were thinking about learning some poses for strength. Or perhaps you are well into the physical part and want to get into the heart of yoga. Whatever you intentions, I thought I’d share howContinue reading “Getting Started: Yoga For Beginners”
