The “I Quit My Job to Travel” Story

At the moment, I’m sitting in a cafe in Palma, Mallorca near la Placa Major. It’s about 4 in the afternoon on a Sunday, I’ve just finished breakfast (it was a late start), and the coffeehouse chatter humming in the background fills the air as fresh espresso grounds crush softly in the background. This quiet coffee shop moves from a soft hum to a jittery buzz. Its just about the end of siesta.

Learn to Fly with Flight Room Seattle

On the outskirts of Downtown Seattle, there’s a place you can go to learn how to fly…  well, not literally.

Flight Room Seattle, located in the Central District neighborhood, recently opened its doors to their new studio with intent to bring yoga, flight, movement, and zen to all who enter their doors. I’ve experienced different types of yoga classes in Seattle before, but Flight Room takes their classes to a whole new altitude.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Camping at Havasupai Falls

Camp at havasupai falls

By now, I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen it. Our social media feed has been buzzing all about it. Videos and images showing luscious blue-green waterfalls hugging the curves of the canyon. Havasupai Falls; heaven on earth (in Arizona). When my friends first shared their desires to travel this desert oasis, I was immediately hooked. I lusted for those falls, ached for the canyon walls to surround me, and dreamed of the desert adventures awaiting me in the Grand Canyon. I knew we had to make it happen. With the help of my wonderful friends (most of whom I’d had met while partying in Las Vegas 4 months earlier), we began our planning!

4 For the Core – Week 4: Balance

Our practice so far has been building us up for this challenge.

Flowing with Felines – A Seattle Yoga News Feature

Hi all! Boy its been a while since I’ve written here, but I’m back! I took a bit of a pause on my site as I began working closely with the lovely folks at the Seattle Yoga News over the summer. Since working with them, I’ve had the opportunity to attend some pretty incredible yoga events in the Seattle area (check out my feature on how to build a better core here). One of the more unique experiences I had this season incorporated yoga with some of our favorite fuzzy creatures at the Seattle Meowtropolitan. Yoga with Cats happens every Tuesday at 8:30 pm. I couldn’t recommend a better way to beat the winter blues than by stretching with these felines. Check out my feature on Seattle Yoga News here.
