|this is how I feel about 2015 so far!!|
**towards the bottom of this post is an invite to a really cool event happening SATURDAY 2/28/15 from 1-4pm in St Pete FL. but first, a little life update...**
As I type this towards the end of February, all i can say is WOW! I am so grateful for all that I've experienced in 2015 so far.
By the end of this month I will have taught 78 yoga and meditation classes, led 5 workshops, and shared Reiki with 2 new clients in 2015. I received my Reiki Master attunement, which will allow me to train others to use this beautiful healing art form.
I've been part of endless planning and networking meetings for women's circles, local festivals and retreats. I get to teach what I love, from Essential Oil Yoga to chakras to vision boarding.
I've also been enjoying my New Years's Resolution, reading every day. At the bare minimum, I read an essay from Meditations from the Mat every morning. The past couple days I've also been adding several "happiness habits" to my morning routine and plan to write about them soon.
For Lent I have decided to abstain from alcohol and added/processed sugar, so I'll be sharing my journey along the way on the blog too (I really do hope to write more! baby steps!)

Throughout it all, I've been so blessed to be surrounded CONSTANTLY by people who are also into positive and healthy living, both students and fellow teachers. This brings me to my last event in February that I am a part of, called 'LOVE: The Art of Relationship.'
Right now, we are in danger of canceling the event due to a low number of registrations. I would be SO honored if you helped turn this around and purchased a ticket (right now!) by clicking HERE.
What is the event, you say? Why should I be there??
WELL, it is happening at the newly opened BARRE CENTRAL (www.barrecentral.com), located in St Pete FL where I teach kids yoga every Monday and Vinyasa every Tuesday. Besides being the latest (and incredibly beautiful) studio to open around town, the owners Sarah and Patti have poured so much of their hearts and souls into this group fitness studio and you should check it out like all the other cool kids ;)

But truly, this event is going to be uniquely AWESOME and so, so beautiful as well. The other facilitators and I are hoping to teach about love and relationships in a whole new way, focusing on building empathy, compassion, self-care rituals, listening skills and so much more.
The whole event is designed to open your heart and improve ALL of the relationships in your life, not just romantic partnerships but how to best share love with your mom, your brother, your kid, your pets.....and most of all YOU!
You do NOT have to bring a partner. But don't be surprised if you attract new partnerships in your life after this event! Or, if you are in a partnership, see that relationship improve big-time!

I'll be kicking off the event at 1pm with energy work and gentle yoga. After that, relationship coach Dr. John Arnaldi (who takes the most beautiful photographs by the way) will be sharing about intimacy, health coach Jennifer Oppelt will be teaching about self-image and self-care, and my workshop partner-in-crime Katherine Robinson will be closing off the afternoon with a loving-kindness meditation.
You can RSVP on Facebook RIGHT NOW! And then purchase your $15 advance ticket RIGHT AFTER THAT! Here are the full details, below. I hope to see you if you're local to St Petersburg!!
