Greetings all! Hoping this blog finds you well and in good spirits. As usual, lots of amazing things going on in life. Some are uplifting and inspirational. While others, seem to be the opposite. I’ve decided to continue posting here. More blogs will consist of my journey within yoga. I’ve been doing online yoga challenges for a few years now. And it has been incredibly motivational. For myself and many others. So, here we go! Today’s highlight: Wild Thing Pose / Camatkarasana
Benefits of Wild Thing Pose: Wild Thing offers a stretch for the chest, shoulders, and throat, as well as the hip flexors and front legs. The pose also builds strength in the arms, shoulders, and upper back, and has an invigorating effect that can combat fatigue and mild depression.Many things effect the state of mind/body. Current events, past relationships, recent relationships, financial issues, expectations of ourselves and others, you name it. The task is to find ways to deal/manage all that life presents us with. Healing and forgiveness is a consistent work in progress. So, breathing into and through all things is so very important!
Quite often, we may feel powerless and alone. Which can cause: Stiffness in the heart, mind and body. Which can also lead to: Lashing out at loved ones and onto ourselves. So, getting back in tune with our own very personal spirituality, must happen. Be well everyone. Thank you for viewing and reading. Stay tuned for more. Namaste 🌺
Greetings all!! As many of you may already know, Nutcracker Season ❄️🌸 is in full swing!! During this time especially, it is common for us to learn multiple hair styles, while preserving healthy hair. It is a common misconception that ethnic hair textures lack the potential to look polished.
Figuring out your hair texture needs, its capabilities and how to maintain it on and off the stage is quite beautiful and sacred. *I’ve attached a link, please view.

Greetings all!! Hoping you’re well. Been doing more reflecting why and how yoga+GYROKINESIS® came into my life. About 5/6 years ago (roughly) I found myself feeling compressed in more ways than physically. I realized, I’d been taking on many loads in ways unhealthy for me. Went into one of my daily dance classes one day. Began the usual routine of pre warm and and warm up. I went into a few stretches I’ve done for years and felt an incredibly large amount of pain!! My heart sank and I began flashing through my life, in this body. Changes needed to happen.. The pose I shared here, is recent. But it is one of the positions that was a wake up for me, it was no longer being accessible. My journey began, from there..
It’s been awhile so, I’ll begin with writing a little about water. By now, most of us know how important water is to the EVERYTHING. Making it happen properly, is the challenge for many. As humidity rises and summer is surely upon us, let’s take in as much water as we can. The drink of the day is Cucumber water🥒. It supports healthy skin. Cucumber water can help soothe your skin from the inside out. Staying hydrated helps your body to flush out toxins and maintain a healthy complexion. Cucumbers are also high in pantothenic acid or vitamin B-5, which has been used to treat acne. So, cheers to you, the present and the future!! Drink up!!
So many things are effects by lack of water. From mood swings to insomnia. Muscle fatigue to digestion issues.
Greetings all!! I’ve been silent for awhile. Living, processing, changing, learning and growing. This post I’ll begin with,thank you for following for all this time. And, thank you for joining me. Dance/Physical Education, wellness has been my force for so long. I’m truly blessed.
My blog focuses on the life and journey of this body/mind. Maybe, you find my writing inspirational and entertaining. Over the past 5 years, I’ve found myself in a beautiful dance, a tango between the art of dance, GYROKINESIS®, fitness and yoga. More than 3x of a decade of life has shown me, mobility of the body and mind are key!! I attend to transfer things I’ve learned and am learning on this journey. Please feel free to join me.
Greetings all. First off, I’d like to wish you all a very Happy and Blessed New Year! 2016, and the years before are done.. surely, I am not the only one to agree, the ups, downs, miscalculations, bumps and falls have been quite humbiling. Within this new year, plans that have been made: aim to be reinforced. Toxic and hugely stressful friendships/ useless, saddening and overpowering business connections: be dismissed. Bright and promising future, within a stronger, beautiful, loving, caring platform to stand, rely on and systematically, rest upon: arise! Allow, the openness and expression that is required, to flow forth. Giving and Receiving all that I am worth and desire. And to just as well, provide such blessings of gifts, outwardly!!
From within: Find the stillness, acceptance, openness, calmness, strength and mobility.. #namaste today, as most days I began with a set focus. Throughout all of the many things going on in life be them good or bad, we must always find ways to give thanks. To balance things out. For me, I find myself returning to the mat, ballet barre, sometimes all within the same day. Like today. These valuable things, help me in various ways in life. From physically to emotionally. It all is done Spiritually.. And full heartedly.
