I’m SO excited to announce that I’m hosting a Tea-Time Chat and Q&A with New York Times bestselling author, Oprah SuperSoul #100 leader, and internationally acclaimed speaker Gabby Bernstein on Sunday Oct 2 in Boston…and you’re invited!
One of the many things that I love about the WELL Summit is that it seeks to nourish attendees on all levels, which directly aligns with my philosophy, and this event will be the same. You’ll sip delicious, organic tea, enjoy healthy treats and soul-deep conversation–including answers to the questions you care most about–in an intimate, welcoming space in community with similarly minded people. What a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
All attendees will leave with a gift bag of carefully curated wellness products and a copy of Gabby’s new book, The Universe Has Your Back so that they can continue to be nourished and pampered at home.
Tickets are available through the W.E.L.L. Summit: http://wellsummit.org/gabby-bernstein-event/

I took a chance and wrote a piece about why I left my high-powered (and soul-sucking) PR career to teach yoga…and was THRILLED when Marie Claire accepted it!
Then Cosmopolitan picked it up…!!
Then Elle picked it up…!!
Then Dr. Oz picked it up…!!!
And then Redbook picked it up!!!
OH HAPPY DAY!!!! I’m so thrilled to share my story with even more seekers, the growing tribe of people that are looking for more than a paycheck. Who want to make a difference, serve the world in their highest way, and find more fulfillment as they do. Keep seeking, seekers! We’re all in this together! <3
Back in my corporate days, I dreaded the annual year-end review with my boss. Who doesn’t? But sitting down with her to go over what I’d accomplished and set goals for the year ahead gave me major anxiety. Of course, this probably had something to do with the fact that my boss was a lunatic known as “Vomiting Vicky” 😉
Now that I’m out from under her corporate dictatorship, I actually love finding some silence and solitude to sit down with a cup of tea and reflect and set goals for the year ahead. Here’s my take on the previously dreaded, now delightful process: I hope it works for you too!
If you’ve taken a workshop with me, you know I custom-blend corporate tools, yoga tools, eastern thinking and western thinking to create what I’ve found to be the most effective (and enjoyable) processes. So…I guess tou can take the girl out of the corporate world, but this girl is taking the best of the corporate world with her. And one of the most effective tools I still use is this year-end review…with a twist. I hope it works for you too.

I’m thrilled to have my first piece featured on the Athleta Chi Blog! Check out my how-to guide on going “OM for the Holidays: 5 Tips to Keep You Zen“–for when your back’s tight from the plane, your belly’s too full, you can’t sleep, or the ever-loving fam is driving you crazy (um…not that MY fam or YOUR fam would ever do that!) 😉
1: Release the Upper Back with Eagle Arms
Bring the arms in front of you at a 90-degree angle, elbows at shoulder-height. If this is enough of a stretch for the shoulders/upper back, stay here. If you need more of a stretch, drop the left elbow below the right and twine the forearms, pressing the back of the palms together. The key to releasing the upper back muscles is to keep the elbows lifted–equal height to the shoulders–and the shoulders as relaxed and low as possible. Take five to ten deep breaths and switch sides.
2: Release Tight Neck Muscles with a Gentle Stretch
Drop your right ear toward your right shoulder and hold for 5-10 deep breaths. You can then gently turn the gaze toward the floor and hold there for 5-10 breaths. Don’t forget to do the other side too!
Bonus: Schedule “Breathing Breaks” throughout the day! Set your phone or calendar to remind you several times through the day to take cleansing and calming breaths!
