"How long do I have to climb up on the side of this mountain of mine?"
Big Coldplay fan over here and after I cued Alexa to play some Chris Martin for some dish-doing music the other night, this lyric caught my ear.
Resilience. Mary Holloway defines it as "knowing that you are the only one that has the power and responsibility to pick yourself up". Resilience means strength, the "in for it for the long haul" stubbornly beautiful strength that is often times required and at the very least beneficial in this life. Resilience is also my word of the year (haha the universe had a good laugh with THAT one! Ya, I'm fully living my word this year!).
Just wanted to give YOU a shout out for your own resilience this season. It pays off, durability, even if you can't see it at first. And it's something to celebrate. So today when July's full moon energy is still in the air, celebrate YOU, your strength, your resilience and your drive. It's dance party worthy!

Full Moon in Cancer
The full moon was officially yesterday BUT the energy of the moon is always present on the couple of days surrounding it.
The energy of the moon in cancer is nurturing. It's a time to nest and even lean into your comfort zones a bit, realizing the benefits they bring. Use this time to feed your mind, body and soul.
Some suggestions for this full moon :
Make a nourishing, delicious meal.
Get organized in your space.
Read a favorite book or watch a favorite movie.
Get nostalgic and look through old pictures or videos.
Reach out to an old friend.
Spend extra time with your family.
Take a long bath.
ENJOY this one!
I JUST updated my site this week, so that you can now sign up in advance for a live stream practice with me. Reserve your spot (class is donation based, pay what you can, so no need to put any money down), add the reminder to your calendar and then unroll your mat with me!
There are NEW crystals in the boutique and more dropping this week! I'm excited to add in more amethysts, bring back selenite and chevron amethysts (by popular demand!) and add a variety of pieces for the first time. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do!!! ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓
LAST CHANCE TO GRAB YOUR SPOT, PLEASE SIGN UP BY 5pm TODAY!
CELEBRATE : July BACKYARD Full Moon Amethyst Crystal Infused Vin Yin Yoga

FULL. MOON. VIBES 🌕 The moon is our closest celestial neighbor and powerfully influences every living thing on our planet. Within 28 days, the moon passes through 8 phases, each with its own unique characteristics. The energy of the arguably most influential phase - the full moon - lends for a magical, beautiful and important practice.
Join me for a monthly ALL LEVELS Full Moon Amethyst Crystal Infused Vin Yin Yoga OUTSIDE IN MY BACKYARD! Practice in celebration of everything you have achieved throughout the previous phases of the moon. Please note : attendance is very limited, there will be a MAX of 8 tickets sold to this event. This is the time that our intentions, dreams and goals come into fruition, it's time to celebrate our accomplishments and create space if things are holding us back.
We will begin and end class by short guided journaling (please bring your moon journal or paper & pen to your mat), and then will practice a gentle vinyasa followed by a calm and serene yin yoga sequence, targeted towards the energy of this specific full moon, and incorporating amethyst crystals throughout our poses. Class is all levels.

You'll be sent directions on where to park and how to enter my backyard through our side gate. Mats will be placed in accordance with conservative social distancing guidelines and as much as I want to HUG you, I'll offer you an elbow instead. I will practice 6+ feet throughout our class.

The moon represents deep feminine wisdom. Engaging regularly with the moon cycles is a powerful way to become intimately connected with the phases of birth, death, and rebirth. In our lives, we too are constantly moving through these cycles, seasons, and changes. Connecting to and working with the moon as she cycles, creates a life of deeper meaning and more authentic connection as we are able to live a life with more awareness and intention. Join us in a women’s circle as we practice grounding techniques, breath work and development of our intuition. We will share virtual space with each other to receive, connect, and create.
