planning

i love this time of sitting inside when it’s cold outside and searching the calendar for dates.  i love choosing new times to explore yoga and laughter.  and i did just that.  check it out.  from far away retreats next year.  to close by (unless you live far from me and want to come here…that would be fun!) winter fun!  i would love to do some adventuring with YOU.

near and far

there is something so magical about being far from home.  something awesome about moving from cold to hot.  something so very healing about the ocean.  here are a few images that capture my most recent raw food yoga retreat in barbados.  it was an adventure full of laughter, and swimming, and napping.  of yoga by the ocean.  and papaya breakfasts and chocolate smoothies for lunch.  it was a crazy wrong side of the wrong kinda adventure.  where the roads felt so narrow.  and the hills so steep.  the views stunning!  and the coconuts…..DSC_0008DSC_0048DSC_0328DSC_0452IMG_0071DSC_0100DSC_0727DSC_0741DSC_0189DSC_0174DSC_0553i am back home in the cold of ontario november.  -13 today!  and i happy to be home.  and refreshed from all the sun and sand and sea i was blessed to experience.  maybe you will join us next year?

i did it

i journeyed back and forth.  from canada to barbados and back again. from cold to warm to cold.  the retreat was more incredible than i could have ever imagined.  and it was enjoyed by everyone more that i expected.  we devoured delicious fruits and incredible life changing raw meals (just ask olivia!).  and LOTS of coconuts! we felt buoyant in the ocean.  swam with beautiful fish.  we made new friends.  and stretched ourselves out with many new adventures.  driving on the other side of the road, surfing, beach yoga, hikes.  we laughed so much.  and all of us felt recharged and refreshed…and almost ready to go home! here is what i had to say about it on being lovely.  www.beinglovely.net

i hope that you will join me next year!
