✨ Goosies ✨

Today I choose to live with gratitude for the LOVE that fills my heart, the PEACE that rests within my spirit, and the voice of HOPE that says all things are possible. ❤️

Inner Smile Meditation — Adapted from Jennifer Reis Yoga.

Your inner smile is glowing golden inside of you all the time! All you have to do is become AWARE of it, and a magical thing happens — you begin to sense how it fills you with bliss, awakens your positive qualities, as well as your own potent healing energy. 

You may like to hold Hansi Mudra while you practice this meditation. Find a comfortable way to sit with your spine lengthened for five or more minutes. 

• Begin to sense your breath without needing to change it in any way.
• Feel a few natural breaths in your belly. Notice a few breaths in your chest and heart-space.
• Become aware of your breath already moving and flowing through your whole body.
• Now imagine an inner smile in your belly. With each breath feel your inner belly smile expanding and…

Be Still.

I choose to meditate on pure, positive, present thoughts, connecting with the Peace within me. What’s the best that can, and will happen? ❤️

Be still and know that I AM God. ~ Psalm 46:10
Be still and know I AM.
Be still and know.
Be still.

Our intention this week is to explore MEDITATION. In the classical yoga tradition, asana yoga is practiced as a preparation for seated meditation. Yoga Nidra, Restorative, and Yin Yoga are also wonderful meditative practices. What exactly is meditation? The definition is “to think deeply or focus for a time for spiritual purposes or to relax. To think deeply or carefully about something.” Whatever we think deeply or carefully about becomes what we meditate on. What fills your mind, my friend? The Hebrew word for meditate is DOMAH, and is literally translated as “to liken, compare, to make oneself like.” Whatever we meditate on, think deeply about, is what we become like. The more we sit with our thoughts, the more likely we are to act…

Santosha 💜

Are you truly content today my friend? Let’s draw inward, explore, and seek true SANTOSHA. 💜

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

SANTOSHA, the Sanskrit word for contentment, requires our willingness to enjoy exactly what each day brings and to be happy with whatever we have. We can easily practice santosha in the beautiful moments and joyous experiences of our lives. But true contentment means being equally willing to embrace difficult moments. Only when we can be content in the midst of difficulty can we be truly free. Only when we can remain open in the midst of pain do we understand what true openness is. In our relationships, when we accept those around us as they truly are, not as we want them to be, we are practicing santosha. ~ Adapted from Cultivate Your Connections by Judith Lasater

Enjoy a portion of a poem written for me by my husband.

She has santosha with the One True God
In full body worship
In constant course correction
All the way to shava

Allow ❦

What are you allowing for? Allow for what seems impossible. Allow for miracles. BE OPEN TO WHATEVER COMES NEXT! ❦

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

This week’s theme is simply the word ALLOW — very open-ended, very individual. What am I allowing in? Who am I allowing into my life? What am I allowing for? Am I allowing myself to be inspired? To embrace change and grow? What do you want to show up in your life? Allow for that. What you allow is what will continue. Pick something today, make it positive and encouraging. Today I’m allowing myself to be fully present. Today I am allowing myself to create and explore. Today I am allowing for a healthy change. Today I am allowing myself to just be and relax. Today I allow love in, and let fear go. Whatever it is, ALLOW it in. As Oprah Winfrey states, “Even the wildest dreams have to start somewhere. Allow yourself the time and space to let your mind wander, and your imagination fly.” So what will…

Present Moment R.E.T.R.E.A.T. ☀️

“Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before.” ❤️ ~ Anonymous


I have been praying about guiding a yoga retreat for over a year, knowing God’s timing and will are always best. I was given a clear vision. Then, about two weeks ago, my friend Hanan Palz called me to say I have been on her heart to lead a yoga retreat together. Say what? Wow, this is a huge answer to prayer! “Take time to develop a vision. First it happens in spirit. Then it manifests in the physical. Not the other way around.” ~ Melody Beattie


All the details are Divinely coming together, and we would LOVE for you to be a part of our transformational PRESENT MOMENT RETREAT experience! CLICK HERE for dates and details. I highly recommend stepping out of the everyday routine to RETREAT:

Reconnect — Root to rebound. The higher the growth up, the deeper must be the enrooting. Connect deeply within and without. Be still and know.

Explore — Let’s play! Celebrate. What captures your attention? Time is a great luxury. “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~ Helen Keller

Tune In — Gently return to center. What do you really need right now? Inquiry leads to more specificity.

Relax — Where can you soften? Presence and awareness encourage healing.

Engage — Be fascinated in possibility. Widen your circle. “Where would you have me go? What would you have me do? What would you have me say and to whom?” ~ Marianne Williamson

Appreciate — Let an inner smile soften your face. “I know precisely what you need to draw nearer to Me. Go through each day looking for what I have prepared for you. Accept every event as My hand-tailored provision for your needs. When you view your life this way, the most reasonable response is to be thankful. Do not reject any of My gifts; find Me in every situation.” ~ Jesus Calling, May 29

Take Away — Insights and integration — Notice what you need to do to stay present, passionate, and peaceful. Be open to growth and transformation.

“I can’t tell you how much I long for you to enter this wide-open, spacious life. We didn’t fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren’t small, but you’re living them in a small way. I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively! ~ 2 Corinthians 6:11-13, The Message

Where are your heart and soul calling you? ❤️
