June Newsletter: Fire

Hi friends, welcome to June! It’s hard to believe but my littlest, Matias, is almost 2!

Take the Challenge!

But it’s when you least feel thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: PERSPECTIVE.” -Oprah Winfrey Hi friends, hope you’re well! Last week, during a juicy discussion on the Niyamas with my Yoga Immersion & […]

October: The Waiting Place

Hi friends, welcome to October. A few nights ago, I had to read Lucas one of his favorite books – Oh, The Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss – for about the 500th time! If you’re familiar with the book, you’ll recognize the part below, which resonated with me on a completely different level this time around: […]

Chile

Although it’s been about 29 years since my family moved from Chile to the US, I confess a piece of my heart remains there…and probably always will. As I celebrate Chilean Independence Day from a distance today (September 18), I thought I’d share a few reasons why this  long, skinny, beautiful country rocks my world! […]
