Hard to believe, especially here in Ohio, that the first day of winter is this coming Saturday. With the weather we’ve been having, you would have thought winter was halfway over. After the summer is over, I start to go into a serious funk that starts with the first time I have to put on […]


On the last night of my 2013 Beach Yoga Bliss retreat, after finishing an incredible dinner that the staff at Manchebo Beach Resort had set for us at a beachside table, the group of beautiful yoginis who attended were anxious to hear where I would host my next retreat.

I got the opportunity recently to sit in a room with a couple hundred women to listen to their words of wisdom. It was an invitation I couldn’t refuse, and let me just tell you, this room was packed with so much energy, love, and power – I was on a goddess-infused high for the […]
