Team Building! in General

IMG_5611

We have the 109 team gathered on the island right now (or most of the team - missing the Soda/Limes of course!) for the dream weekend, the grand prize in our Omaze campaign that just finished. To take advantage of having all of us in the same country (it almost never happens!) Olivia arranged a team building day. We started off with a brunch and some exercises to deepen the connection between each person in the group. So valuable! We all know each other of course, but this was a great way to learn more about...

Pumpkin Spice Baby! in General

img_5513

Ok so don't start freaking out - I'm not overdoing the coffee. Apparently I'm allowed a cup a day (right??) and I'm having just one a week. I've been craving this Pumpkin Spice Latte forever though!!! How very basic of me☺️ They are just so damn delicious... I've had a super busy day with a ton of meetings and interviews and what feels like a never-ending stream of emails. But some fun stuff is coming up - our big 109 adventure starts on Friday and the team is here to celebrate with the winner of...

Prenatal Yoga – check! in General, Pregnancy

austin-morning-8

Today I am s o r e ! Filmed a total of 8 prenatal yoga classes for www.oneoeight.com yesterday and everything went great. We had a new beautiful location - for every shoot we do we try to look for new spots to shoot; I love outdoor shots the most, and the location we got yesterday was amazing. I filmed these prenatal-focused classes: Deep & Slow Hip-Opening (this class is exactly what it sounds like; deep, slow, delicious hip-openers!) Energizing Flow (a flow to give you a pick-me-up whenever needed) Grounding Flow (a slow flow,...

costarica-108-124

If you read my previous posts you’ll know I started struggling with severe nausea already at week 5, and spent a lot of time researching and trying everything the internet suggested to find a way to feel better. I’m happy to tell you I came across a bunch of stuff that actually worked! I’ll include everything in this post. Every body is different so what worked for me might be the last thing to work for you, but it’s worth giving everything a try. So – here are my top 10 tips to fight morning...

Art Festival in General

We headed down to San Nicolas last night for an art festival and it was super special! There are so many new creative initiatives happening on the island and local art is taking up a lot more space these days. I love it! Some of our closets friends are artists and have a big role in setting these art fairs up and last night was beautiful. I didn't take a ton of photos but fell in love with these murals... We are planning at least two murals for Island Yoga and this has me feeling...

#bonaireyoga16 in General

FullSizeRender 10

What a wonderful week we've had! I love leading retreats - it's my absolute favourite yoga-teaching format. Big classes are amazing because the energy is so powerful, and I love the day-to-day community vibe of teaching regularly in a studio, but there is something very special about taking a whole group to an intimate location for yoga and meditation twice a day. There is no rush to get to know one another, no urgency to hurry up the experience. We have so much time to spend together that everybody immediately relaxes and sets their own...

Bonaire! We’re back! in General

snapseed

Landed yesterday around noon and it feels a little bit like coming home. Bonaire is our neighbor island, or technically it's Aruba-Curaçao-Bonaire, our beautiful little group of islands in the south Caribbean (also called the ABC islands!). We used to come to Bonaire several times a year but this year for some reason we haven't even been once! The beginning of the year was stressful for us, fighting a big legal case and splitting from our ex-business partner, and traveling all around the US for The Gratitude Tour... Then Europe in May, and in June...

Praying To the Sinus Gods in General

just-breathe-2sm

Today could have been a total crap day but I'm determined to turn it around. My sinuses feel like they are getting worse and worse and I'm now on nasal spray literally 24-7.  The moment the effects start wearing off my nose gets completely, 100% congested - I can't breathe at all, my ears get blocked too, it feels like my entire head is full of lead... It's awful. I've tried net pot (takes me 20-30 minutes of using it before it clears up, works for 20 minutes then goes back to what it was before),...
