200 YTT – Day 10-13 – Week 3 Complete

Coming into Week 3, I seriously did not want to go back to work. Teacher training for 8 hours was a dream and I was surrounded lovely ladies with good vibes. It was tough to carry-on my teachers mantra this week, "everything is temporary." I tried to tell myself that work eventually ends...that it's only … Continue reading 200 YTT – Day 10-13 – Week 3 Complete

200 YTT – Day 6 – Walking Meditation

Kapilina Beach was my distraction today. Believe or not during a walking meditation you should only be focused on your breath and your step.

My hamstrings needed a four day rest or more like a modified … Continue reading Splits Journey – Listen to your body, first
