The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” -Anne Frank-

May you find your peace today and in the coming holiday week.

I first did a yoga class nearly 20 years ago and it was not with a positive result I thought I wanted at that time of my life. I tried a class, or more, again while I was living in St. George and found more of what I was seeking in those classes at Be Hot. I went to a couple practices while I was living in Maui and again the similar result as in Southern Utah.

It was not until I attended a Yoga Retreat (#findaways) with my friend Nikki Nelson in late August of 2018 that I found #myyogatribe of ladies.

The transcended experience of a Open Heart Retreat with is beyond comprehension or description. This was what I had been seeking, and it was the right time for me to find these lifelong companions. I will continue to seek out time with them and share my journey with them as we all seek to #evolve into the better version of ourselves.

I would encourage each of us to #getoutdoors more often, continue to seek out our tribe, and to explore the unknown until we get the results we are seeking…it may be the location, it may be the timing, it may be the people as was the case for me in all three areas this time around.

Yoga is not about the Bind, Twist (loop), or position…it is about your practice with your body and your mind. Seeking Intention, Solitude to Improve, and ways to tune into You, your Inner You; that I have not found in any other way thus far in my journey of life.

Don’t move the way fear makes you move. Move the way joy makes you move. Balance is key to everything. What we do, think, say, eat, feel, they all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow. Yoga isn’t about touching your toes, it’s about what you learn on the way down.

May we all be willing to learn. May we all be teachable. May we all strive for improvement.

A dear friend of mine once said, “I am sick and tired of being surrounded by people that excel at mediocrity and are perfectly happy doing so.” May we never be “those people”, my friend.
