I appreciate you all taking the time to read and follow my blog. Truly, I am grateful. I wanted to pass along my mid-month newsletter….I typically only write one per month, but there is just too many good things to wait. Enjoy!
I was reading this morning and came across a quote that really describes my state of being these days….and that is gratitude. “…sometimes we get so focused on the difficulty of the climb, we lose sight of being grateful that we have a mountain to climb…” And that is EXACTLY where I have been the last few weeks. The recovery from this surgery has not been easy, but I am reminded on those really hard days of a sweet lady who I am fortunate to share Yoga with. When I asked her one day how she was doing, her response was, “My body is reminding me that I am alive….and that means I am grateful”. Although I still have quite a mountain ahead of me, I am grateful that I have the ability (with lots of support) to go climb it. I am thankful I am determined, capable and very focused on staying present with what today offers me, whether it is pain or relief.
With that, I am also so excited to share that this past week I became a Certified Brain Injury Specialist by passing a rigorous exam. One of the blessings of surgery is that I had time to study as well as my focus being on my body, I was not too overly stressed if I passed or not. Boom!
I wanted to share also for those who aren’t on followers on social media that I just completed a great project with an organization called Unmasking Brain Injury. Through a month long process of identifying emotions and often trapped feelings, to was an honor to work with 30 individuals living with brain injuries to complete a really intimate and challenging display of the impact of their injury on their life. Check out the pictures below to see just a snippet of their work. I am so proud of who they are.
Finally, I wanted to pass along an amazing special if you have been watching me with essential oils and wonder how they might fit into your own healthy lifestyle. I use essential oils for everything from pain support, help with sleep, reducing the toxic load in my home by cleaning naturally and many, many emotional benefits. If you are skeptical, I challenge you to give me 30 minutes of your time, a book to borrow and some samples to try. If you are inspired and ready, lets get together and get you started. This month there are several starter kits 20% off! You will get your oils, a year-long wholesale pricing membership (like costco ) and mentoring with me. With this membership there is no requirement to purchase monthly or sell–just the same discount as me! Plus, when you get these amazing oils in your home, I will arm you a in-depth resource book to empower your knowledge, as well as other goodies to get you on your way.
Also as of this week, I am returning to LifeTime fitness to teach Yoga and Pilates AND I have a few spots open in my home studio for private or small group classes.
Here’s to health and happiness,

Unmasking Brain Injury
Have you ever wanted to try yoga but too intimidated by a large class setting and not sure what you’re doing? Private yoga is a great option for many.
Benefits of private yoga include:
- focus on personal goals
- developing a plan for a home practice
- hands-on adjustments (if in person)
- deepening of your personal practice
In my private sessions, I incorporate essential oils, meditation and chakra awareness. I also offer remote classes via SKYPE.
