We are creating a new lifestyle, movement and brand to heal and change the world. Everyone can be a Yoga Girl.

In order to change the world we must first begin with ourselves. Healing requires courage – and it means we have to do the work. In this community we walk this beautiful and difficult path together.

The hardest part is showing up. You’re already here, so… Welcome.

Be a Yoga Girl.

The Pause In Between

Smart people always get my attention, especially a genius as gifted as Albert Einstein. His words were as magical as his mathematics were miraculous. He wrote, ” He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.“
