My living room is a shared space that acts as an office, meeting room, man cave, dining room, lounge, TV room, cuddle corner, dance floor, and even showcased as a karaoke bar one night. With all that going on, I often feel disconnected from the room. I use it when it serves the purpose I … Continue reading Reflections from a living room upgrade
Humans, we need to stop pushing through. Stop sticking to the plan, just for the plan’s sake. Stop packing our schedules to the point where we never have time to pause and tune in. Stop bull-dozing each other (and the planet) to push our agenda forward without considering the impact on the other. I had … Continue reading What if we’re running the wrong race?
I promised myself I would write, but I don’t. There’s so many reasons not to. The traffic is too loud. The laundry needs to be done. I want to have a beautiful view to stare at while I sit outside under one of those trellis things where the plants grow on them to shade the … Continue reading A book deal with God
Amoeba. That’s what the first half of this year felt like. Parts of my life were dropping like flies and I was left with just me. A single-celled 'me', without a defined shape, that could just about slink my way across the floor before it used up all its energy. Taking action, but not really clear … Continue reading Me, my yoga mat, and God
It’s the Little Girl inside me that holds my hand, looks up into my eyes, and starts pulling me towards all that life has to offer on the other side.
Our Warrior reminds us that strength lies in facing our darkness. Causing someone else pain does not heal our own. Healing only happens when we sit with our wounds.
This is the 2nd in a 3-part series exploring the archetypes of the Embody dance class. As a teacher, I felt called to discover how the Sensual Siren, Warrior Queen, and Little Girl lives within me. This one is for the Warrior Queen. In the days leading up to writing this, I kept catching glimpses … Continue reading Embody Part 2: Don’t mess with your Warrior Queen
This is the first of a 3-part series, in my personal exploration of the feminine archetypes that shape Embody. Embody invites us to embrace our Sensual Siren, our Warrior Queen and our Little Girl. My sensual, strength, and silly. My pleasure, power, and playfulness. My beauty, bold, and bliss. These are parts of myself that … Continue reading Embody Part 1: Embracing your Sensuality
I did it. 4 weeks without logging on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook (OK I logged on Facebook, but only to send a quick message to someone I didn’t have an email for. Note to self… this is why you collect emails!) I feel like celebrating. Not only that I stuck to my guns and worked … Continue reading Permission to Stop Being Social and Just Blurt
We were sitting on the floor in a circle, the sweat slowly drying on our warm bodies, now limber from 57 minutes of moving to music (some call that dancing). “I think I found a new addiction… JOY!”, she said. This was her first Embody class, and she had found her Joy. I sat there … Continue reading Addicted to Joy
