I had the pleasure and honor of recording a Dreamchasers podcast with Lucas Barra a couple of weeks ago.
Lucas and I have known each other for a few years, and he’s seen me grow from a new yoga teacher about to quit her day job, into a business owner launching another venture in a brand new place. He was fresh out of college when we first met, and now he’s living his dream by helping others chase theirs. Pretty awesome.
We talked for a good 45 minutes about my journey and process of finding balance, learning to say no, crying in the shower, and the general rollercoaster of life. For all the juicy bits, listen here.
While your own dreams may be way different than my own, the universal chase of the dream is something most everyone can relate to. Lucas has different guests every week, so stay tuned!

We have less than 4 months until our first Caribbean-based yoga teacher training and I'm super stoked!
We'll be staying at Surfbreak Cabarete, just a few minutes walk from the best surfing beaches in the Caribbean, so I'm hoping to finally feel a little more comfortable riding waves. (Ha, we'll see if 3 weeks does the trick! Hold me to it - I'm promising to post surfing photos and videos in July)
My philosophy on yoga is that it should add to your life. We all have plenty of reasons and opportunities to be stressed, and I believe in the power of yoga as a way to check-in with yourself, and check-out from the rest of the world.
I'm confident that Surfbreak Cabarete, with its tropical surroundings, beautiful beaches, laid-back vibe, and cozy amenities, is the perfect place to do just that.
We'll be doing plenty of yoga, most of it off our mats and out of the studio: from walking meditations on the beach, to surfing, mindful eating, and much more. For more information about July's training, click here.
