2018: New Year, New Mantra

Awaken your inner warrior
With unconditional warmth and acceptance, empower the impulse to move toward happiness…see the light in you, you are unlimited.

Welcome Contentment
Remind yourself daily that… I am beautiful, I am bountiful and I am blissful….and stay in that space for good.

Hop on the Happiness Track
Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have and Hope is the only drink you need to be drinking….empty yourself and let the universe fill you.

Travel with a Sense of Openness, Love and Gratitude
For wild places and a desire to enjoy the journey through balance, self-care and growth.

Enjoy an Enlightened Diet
Infuse your yoga practice with energy, stability and balance by combining asana and meditation.

Gather Your Sparks
You are the company you keep, so keep great company–engage in meaningful conversations. Rejuvenate. The magic of our tribe is in blending yoga, art and inspiration….to cultivate connection. Happy together.

Live Well, Be Happy
Measure riches in terms of relationships, spirituality and creativity. Walk with wisdom and listen. Take small steps for a big impact. Love, love, love your whole life from the inside out. A reminder that roadside assistance for the spiritual traveler is always available, so be fearless.

Giving back is her life’s purpose; seva (self-less service) makes her happy.

What’s your 2018 Mantra going to be?

The year’s still young :), so I hope you get a chance this weekend to reflect and create your own 2018 inspiration board, because as many of you know, collaging / setting intentions is my favorite new year’s tradition. The beauty about these boards is that they can be about anything–internal or external. I’ve collaged on wellness/healing, love, moving and even work.


Create Your Own Vision Board

What I love about this process is that there is something so calming, organic and grounding about it. I try not to start with any pre-defined ideas and instead allow myself to get lost in a pile of favorite magazines and my box of “things I love” (i.e. tea bag quotes, old cards, newsletter snippets, inspiring articles, etc, etc). After a few hours of ripping and snipping out things I’m drawn to, I sit down with a blank canvas and start arranging the words and images. And slowly, without a doubt, my deepest longings come to the surface.

This year was no different, the messages that came out were loud and clear and resonated deeply in my heart. For me 2018 is going to be about redefining my definition of success through self love, contentment and community….and spending so  much more time outside, basking with Mother Nature!
