The only constant is change. I usually pray for grace as I navigate the quick changing sands of life & entrepreneurship. #lifeofayogi : Ancient Bee Hive Huts of Dingle Peninsula, County Kerry, #Ireland, April 2017.

This Sunday I am paying my respects to the UN-LEARNING PROCESS Two weeks ago I attended a yoga workshop as a student, for the first time in a very long time. Not a host/planner - just a student. The first section of the workshop I found myself frustrated. The goal of the teachers @soniataylorbach & @dwayneholliday was not for me to achieve a predictable outcome (pose) but rather to have a deliberately new process by which to approach and understand the outcome. As someone who's been blessed to study with lots of incredible yoga teachers, and who has practiced yoga for a while now, I had a hard time letting go and being led in a new way towards an old place. Dwayne wisely let me know that there's a difference between HABIT & LEARNING I was stopping myself from learning bc because I already knew how to "get there." I finally understood a quote from @lkaminoff "Yoga practice isn’t about doing the asanas, it’s about un-doing what’s in the way of the asanas." Well amen to that. . Huge pranams to @soniataylorbach who has been on a righteous unlearning process the past three months and graduates from her training today!

My last day of 2017 was pure #magic. Running errands to prepare for NYE, getting my cobra roll on @theyogaloftcologne with 90 yogis ... rushing home to decorate for our fondue party and eventually falling asleep on the floor with my honey bc we had babies and parents asleep in both our beds. I LOVE to cook & feed people & to host parties and throw events. It is a joy to me to care for others. This one was especially magic. 9 adults, 2 babies, 2 dogs. We have all attended each other's weddings, gone on retreat together, celebrated birthdays and births ... Last night we celebrated life as we ate and drank and danced and passed the babies around ... 2018 arrived with sparklers and kisses. Feeling so grateful for the family that surrounds me here in Germany.
And, 2018?! I will see you TMW.
Best believe I've got a lot we goin' do. #thethingsthatmatter#imtoooldforthisshit#notreally
