The Philosophy

In a Nutshell...

Be-Well

Be Well

Respect your body enough to fuel it with what it needs to run at optimum level. 

Love your body and it will love you back.

Travel-Often

Travel Often

Explore your surroundings. Whether it’s another culture, another street in your neighbourhood, or a class you’ve never tried before.

Explore. Expand. Be Present. Wake up.

Lifes-Good

Life’s Good

It’s all in the belief. Your life is what you make of it.  Our minds are like muscles we can train to think differently. 

Love your life and it will love you back.

Just Trust

Just Trust

I had an emotionally exhausting week last week. All because I {temporarily} lost trust in the flow of life. Trust that everything external is a perfect reflection of our internal reality. I forgot that the only reality we can control is ourselves – our own thoughts and our own actions. When we try to control…
