Kale, Peanut Butter and Goji Smoothie

on
March 29, 2019
I’ve been about a week on Koh Tao island and I accidentally joined the cult of Crossfit. Yep, the yoga guide has crossed over to the dark side. I kid, I kid. Each morning I rouse myself at 6 am-ish, do my 20 minute meditation, and start blending baby. This Kale, Peanut Butter and Goji recipe is one of my favorite go-tos that kickstart my day.

Here’s to Big Ships in the Night

on
March 3, 2019
I’m living a dream that I had about 3 years ago. I will never forget it. At the time I thought it was about my PhD, but now I know it was about my marriage-divorce. I dreamt that it was a dark stormy night. I was on a massive ship in the middle of a stormy ocean. I found myself on the deck with the crew. They were telling me that I had to jump.

February 24, 2019
Balance is a tricky business. Forget all the images you see of people sitting in lotus pose, with their sage, candles and mudras. Living in a state of balance requires macro decisions followed by dozens of simplistic micro-decisions. It might include some of the former but it’s usually not Instagrammable. I find that taking the time daily to practice gratitude for the small things changes my mood, which improves my balance. Practicing gratitude is also a way that I cultivate joy - a light that fills you with hope and faith and love.

on
February 14, 2019
After posting a few humorous Instagram stories about me going down with the hashtag #itstherussians or #blameitontherussians , I settled into my seat next to a Russian guy. He was incredibly kind, helped me with my bags, and didn’t moan every time I stood to use the washroom. I casually looked at his WhatsApp conversation (as you do), and saw his messages littered with heart emojis and kisses. My brain fired off a “wow, he’s just like me...”

Gathering the Courage to Be All In

on
February 12, 2019
In poker, the term all in means that a player has put the last of her chips into the pot. She can no longer perform another action because she doesn’t have any chips left. In a life transition such as a break up, divorce, or death of a loved one - to be all in often means gathering the courage to be vulnerable again.

Koh Tao Island, Thailand

Welcome to my journey of discovery, healing and radical self love. I’m in the process of divorce and I’m using this blog to share my experiences through all the places, things I see around the world. So far I have traveled to more than 50 countries on four continents, and counting. I am a 500 HR Yoga Teacher, and Strala Guide trained by American yogi, Tara Stiles, founder of Strala Yoga. I received a master’s in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and a master’s in Anthropology from the School of Oriental & African Studies. I now live on the island of Koh Tao, Thailand, where I guide yoga and seize opportunities for personal growth that I willingly share with those around me. Follow my blog and discover my renewal through food, travel, and yoga.
