happy new year!

i hope that the last 16 days of 2019 have been insightful for you! this year is going to be different, i can feel it in my bones! it is going to be the year we experience life in a softer way. in a way we did not in 2018, and in a way we can yield to what the year asks of us without fear or shame.

2018 was BIG for me! i saw and served in ways i did not realize i was capable. i took major risks and i pushed hard toward what i believed in. this year, i have but one intention; BLOOM. if my actions, deeds, and words, do not feed my intention, i will not pour any energy into them.

in 2018, i learned the true value of each of my relationships, as well as my role in them. and perhaps most important, i learned that on the other side of fear is grace.


amidst a new calendar year, an opportunity to start over, i invite you to set just one intention.


here is to your becoming, to your blooming wherever you are planted, to your trajectory, with abundance on your side, and to a new year filled with endless possibilities! 


as you sit and reflect on 2018, ask yourself, was it a year of questions or answers? also, ask what 2019 wants for you? part of my blooming this year is undertaking an advanced yoga teacher training at bethel farm -- i am so ready to learn how better to serve through my teaching. i have been following bethel farm for years, and delighted to grow through their training.


PS: the women’s yoga retreat to Ethiopia has only 4 slots left! curious what the plan is? send me a note to make your $500 deposit and i will send you our plans in print! 


i want to support you where you need it the most!


big love,
