• Gaining Perspective

    Here’s Why It’s A Healing Tool

    Recent physical and emotional challenges gave me no choice but to do one thing. I had to gain perspective. The switching of my mindset was incredibly difficult. I don’t know if I was able or willing to do so.

  • Deepening My Mind, Body, and Most of All My Soul

    It has been a very, very, busy, few weeks. Work has been far more intense than expected. However, I am excited to announce my latest adventure. But before I do, I’ll go back just a bit. I have been a dance teacher for the past 20 years and stopped (for now) about a year and a half ago. With the change of work/teaching life, I couldn’t do both. Teaching dance is a highly skilled art form which does a lot of damage to the body. As a result, I have experienced some physical ailments. But I don’t let it stop me.

    ¡El ejercicio es todo!

    I’ve always loved teaching and always saw myself teaching something other than dance. For the past 8 years or so, I’ve always dreamt of becoming a yoga teacher. And now the time has come!!!

    This weekend I will start my yoga teacher training and I’m beyond excited! The schedule fits my busy lifestyle and it has come at a great time! I invite you to follow my journey and hope you become inspired to do what you love to do! As everything in life, there is a process. I want to show the good, the bad and the realness of it all. So, follow me here and on Instagram for the progress.

    Namaste.

  • Benefits of Stretching

    Cat cow stretch. Child’s pose and downward dog. These are just a few stretching exercised I do as soon as I roll out of bed. After 20 years of teaching dance (transitioning into something else..stay tuned) my body sometimes becomes very stiff. As we listen to our bodies, it’s crucial to give it the TLC as needed.

    Make a promise to yourself to treat your body the best way possible. In my opinion, the best time to stretch is in the morning. You’ve spent a whole night without mobility which is great! Sleep is crucial. In the morning, stretching sets the tone for the day. It’s also an incredible feeling to relieve your body of any stress it might have from the day before.

    • Stretching relieves stress
    • Improves posture.
    • Increase energy levels.
    • Improves circulation to the body.
    • And most of all, it centers the mind.

    For those of us who sit long periods of time at your desk, take your well-deserved break. Perhaps this will motivate you to stretch!
