Back bending/ spinal mobility. 

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..

Water water water!!

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. 

Gazing into 2017.

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!! 

Bound, restriction, will, freedom.

This photo says so much! It came along at the most fitting time. The struggle, the will to continue! The obstacles seem to keep multiplying yet I keep on going, who informed you that you couldn’t do it?Who confirmed that you could? I may be riddled with scratches and bruises but I keep on my toes, my eyes open and keep breathing and moving onward!! I could not do anything that I do without God, you lovely friends and family and sheer faith/will!

August, holding onto summer. . .

Greetings all! I apologize for my absence! Overall, I have been very well. Let’s see, where should I start. My summer was so much better an experience than last summer. Why? Stress in various locations of life, have finally, been processed. The frustrations and anger I felt, have been understood, dealt with and I am still making lots of progress, with that. I Thank God. Sometimes, life will throw us curve balls, and we either, catch them or Dodge them. lol!! I managed, to do both.  Maintaining my artistic growth, which is very much connected to my growth as a woman are very closely knitted. I do recall, getting things a little confused and heading to advice from others, that meant well, but caused more harm than good. Be it on purpose or not, is no longer my concern. Allowing  myself to receive the blessings vs fight them and question them, was definitely, eating me alive!  So I guess, when I take long absences from the public, I am regaining my balance. Which I realize, even more than before, Very important! I thank God, my supportive parents and my awesome, ultra talented and amazing friends for their undying love and support. When things are good and when things are not so good! I love and thank you all!!

*Another thing: Dealing with Minor Injuries/Aliments while continuing to move forward!
Over the last 12-13 weeks, I found out I was dealing with Achilles Tendinitis. Very common, Ouch!! Dancers and Athletes attain very similar, if not the same injuries. So, since my career involves physical activity be it, dancing or teaching, I found myself in a deep and dark funk during the healing process. Since, I was forced to, ignore the pain, “take it easy” or to straight up, sit out.  Very frustrating and difficult to do!  During that process, I was blessed with opportunities to gain a couple of Certifications for Teaching. 1.
GYROKINESIS Apprentice  Trainee . and 2. Bolshoi Ballet Academy Teacher Training Course, level A. These will come in very handy as I continue dancing and teaching. And someday in the future: Slowing down on the dancing thing or No longer dancing. Either way, I will be involved in my field, continuing with my missions!  With a Career in the Performing Arts spanning 18 years, so far,

it is clear to me, this is my calling in life.  So, I anticipate, further investigating and being submerged in things related, the rest of my life. Performing, physical Wellness, Body Alignment, expression and freedom of the mind/body.  In addition to these things, I have been working with my Mentor, learning, growing and healing all at once! Realized, I have been selected, for reasons, even I am just now realizing, will be again, one of the biggest influences and one of the biggest and best moves I could have ever made! In time, it all make since and fall right into place. I just need to maintain PATIENCE!! anyhow, I know this post, is rambling on and on! I just wanted to give an update and let you all know that I am well, missing blogging and have many adventures to share. In time, so please bare with me! Thank you for following and please, continue! Take care Y’all!!!
