Introducing...Island Yoga Studio! Now this is a rendering (a digital drawing) - we are deep in the construction process right now with the new foundation and walls going up this week.

May All Beings Everywhere be Happy and Free in General, Love

002-banner-blog

लोकाः समस्ताः सुखिनो भवन्तु May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words and the actions of my own life contribute to that happiness and to that freedom for all. How many days in a row can we go on being heartbroken? How many senseless killings will we have to endure? How many sons, daughters, fathers, mothers lost? We cannot fight hate with hate. We cannot combat fear with fear. And we can't win one war by starting another. We can only pray. We can pray. Hope. Return to love. Tonight I'm...

Why Aren’t People Opening Their Eyes? in General

surfingnowaves-fullres-1-(2)

Today I'm feeling pissed. Really pissed off. I look at this social media community and I don't fucking know what's going on. This has been brewing in me for a while. After my social media break a few weeks ago I didn't know if I wanted to return at all, but I did, because there is a lot of beauty here. When I am authentic I get authenticity back and it's the most powerful thing. But some days, like today, I look around and a part of me goes WHAT THE FUCK ARE ALL THESE...

Live Your Life for YOU in General, Love

God lives in wild, reckless abandon of structure. Shake things up. Say yes when you normally say no. Break all the rules. Follow your intuition. Talk to strangers. Laugh out loud. Dance like you don't give a fuck. Yell at the ocean. Hug a tree. Cry when you feel like it. Be naked more. Eat whatever the hell you want. Quit your job. Start a new one. Speak your mind. Fall in love. You were born a free spirit. Act like it!  xo,

rachel-divi-banner

Here are five of my favorite wellness practices you can implement into your daily life - from me to you!   1 - Create sacred mornings.

Set your intentions for the day! Rushing out the door sets a hectic tone for the day. Make your mornings sacred and the rest of the day will follow suit. 2 - Drink hot lemon water in...
