What Really Happens at Island Yoga Retreats With Yoga Girl®
People ask what we do during our retreats. Yes, we practice yoga twice a day and eat nourishing meals. We hike to natural pools, jump off sailboats and play. But all those things aren’t what make these retreats so special. What really happens is deeply life-changing.
5 Ways to Love Yourself First and Live Your Life for YOU
Two truths have changed my life: 1—You can’t know love, and give love, if you don’t love yourself first. If you try, it won’t be pure or unconditional. 2—You’re here for a specific purpose that only you have. It makes zero sense to live anyone else’s life but your own! Come home to yourself and your divine purpose with these 5 tips.
I’m often asked how I navigate relationships with those who don’t understand or agree with my views and life choices. Most of my life I’ve been questioning the status quo and striving to trust and follow my intuition, or my ‘gut’, rather than what is considered ‘normal’ and comfortable within my social context.
I was never sporty. I got out of running the mile in gym class every year with a note from my allergist. I wrote essays on the benefits of exercise in the library instead. I didn’t see the point of sports, or dance, or playing outside at recess. I was much more interested in reading.
When I started teaching yoga it was a hobby. Something I wanted to share with my friends and family. I have been practicing some form of yoga for the past 43 years of my life. My yoga evolved from a form of exercise to life altering experience. My teaching developed from a small class of my friends and family to a worldwide stage. My mission: more accessibility for more people. I wanted the yoga mat to be a place of surrender and community.
One-of-a-kind experiences where our community, teachings and souls come to life.
