  • The #1 Reason You Can’t Do A Handstand

    one handed handstandWhat is one pose that you wish you could rock with ease and freedom? Most people would reply HANDSTAND! Handstands are one of those poses that may take a while to find your “sweet spot”, to really “nail it” on purpose and not on accident, but it is so totally worth the consistent practice to get there.

    Handstands offer a new perspective on life that will bring a wealth of empowerment and confidence to your life. Yet, there is ONE common thing that I see all the time that keeps people from attaining their handstand dream.

    ONE THING. One simple-as-a-pimple alignment piece that is out of wack and keeping 90% of people defeated in conquering this pose. PPPSSST…. this simple piece is NOT shoulder strength and it is NOT thoracic spine flexibility. Although both of those elements are great keys to unlocking your handstand potential, that is more than likely not the #1 factor that is holding you back.

    Today I will be sharing 2 (of oh so many) stories of how when you get over this ONE THING, YOU too will be able to joyfully practice, and one day NAIL your handstand too.

    (But just a word of caution: if you DON’T get over this one alignment problem, you will NEVER and I repeat NEVER conquer this dream that your body is so very capable of enjoying fully.) (more…)

  • Raw & Organic Samoa Girl Scout Cookie Meets Thin Mint

    sugar free cookieHealthy, organic food is always a highlight at my yoga, fitness and adventure retreats here on Kauai and today I am going to share a recipe I served that had everyone purring in blissful delight. It is like a cross between a Samoa Girl Scout Cookie and a Thin Mint, but raw, organic and free from all processed sugars!

    When you live an active lifestyle and appreciate all that your body does for you, gifting the body with nourishment is key. When you put good nourishment into your body, your body feels good, works wonderfully and energetically you become more open and willing to life life full out! Wouldn’t you agree?

    And during my retreats this is exactly what we do. Life full out! Some of the deserts that we enjoyed included a raw, tropical fruit pie, a vegan, one-ingredient banana ice cream topped with fresh macnuts and a cashew creame, and lets not forget the raw key lime pie made with avocados. Yummmm.

    But lets get back to those delicious and nutritious Girl Scout Cookies that I am sharing with you today. (more…)

  • Your Mind Set. Your Fear. Your Potential.

    take offThe mind is such a wild thing really. Depending on which way we direct the mind, or which way the mind directs us, will have the most profound impact on how fully we will experience life living in this amazing body.

    Our mind has the capacity to hold us back from living full out, and we all know this to be true from experience. It is called FEAR. And it creeps into our head as a way for our loving mind to keep us safe. But the irony of it all really is wondrous. The mind can, and will if given the opportunity, come up with countless of reasons why we should hold back from living full out.

    Just the other day I faced that at an indoor trampoline gym. And this is how I handled… (more…)

  • How To Reach Your Fitness Goals When You Consistently Fail

    morning workoutOk, it’s a few good weeks into January and chances are you have fallen short of continuing forth in your New Year’s Resolution with the same enthusiasm and drive you had the first 2 weeks of January.

    Statistically, more people are making New Year’s Resolutions about weight loss and fitness goals than anything else. And guess what, by February close to 40% of those enthusiasts flat out give up. What does this fuel inside of us? Those subconscious limiting beliefs of feeling not-good-enough, incapable, and unworthy.

    Body Shame Is Real But It Is Not True

    Sadly, many people actually blame their BODIES for this lack of follow through. These beliefs (they hang out more in the foreground of our awareness) sound more like:

    • “My body does not work right.”
    • “My body does not cooperate with me.”
    • “My body is against me.”
    • “My body is simply doomed for mediocre and lacks all ability for everlasting, uplifting transformation.”

    Sound familiar? If you have indeed set a goal to get in shape, become stronger, leaner, healthier and/or more energetic yet have given up on your birthright bliss to become just that, then indeed there is something going on. But let me cut right to the GREAT NEWS….

    You are NOT doomed. Your body INDEED desires to shine. Your body IS a miracle and holds within each of it’s trillions of cells IMMENSE POTENTIAL!

    So what is the secret to everlasting growth and expansion when we are committed to make a change? (more…)

  • A Lower Body Workout Inspired By Tony Robbins

    lei and lotus flowerI recently attended a 4 day Tony Robbins seminar titled Unleash The Power Within. It was AWESOME!

    One of the many breakthroughs I experienced was taking the way I celebrate in life to the next level. And when I say celebrating I am referring to the big events in life, but MOSTLY I am referring to EVERYTHING in life. All those things we overlook in allowing us to bubble up daily with excitement, joy, enthusiasm and love.

    After coming home from the event, I themed a lower body workout class with some inspirations from the event! This 70 minute workout is titled, “Are You Celebrating With All Your Being.” I have shared this with 2 groups I am coaching online right now, my 30 Days To Body Freedom group, and my VHB (Very Happy Bodies) group. The response has been awesome.

    Listen to what one women from Scotland shared with me today after doing this workout (which I am going to share with you today absolutely free)… (more…)

  • 4 Tips For Rocking Everlasting Energy

    jumpforjoySo with a solid and loving intention to maximize my everlasting energy and vibrancy I have decided to cut my coffee intake down to about one coffee a week. Basically, I am cutting coffee but staying open to enjoying a warm brew up to once a week if I would like to partake for enjoyment, but not for energy.

    I am not a coffee junkie. But I do drink one cup every morning and the ritual of it has been nice. But truth be told routine consumption creates an acidic environment in our gut and bodies and (news flash) an acidic inner environment does NOT support everlasting energy and radiant vibrancy.

    I guide women in a highly supportive and FUN online environment with the tools required to skyrocket the potential in their bodies, in getting fit, and in becoming the happy spirit they are meant to be. It is my joy to be of service in this way!

    Today I want to share with YOU, right here, no membership required. If you want to learn more about how to be supported in increasing your energy so you can be a better EVERYTHING and ANYTHING keep reading…. (more…)
