Dream a Little Dream
Well folks, I did it.
On February 25, 2014 I officially launched my dream. That was the day I announced my departure from the job I’ve held for the past 15 years.
You better believe I exhaled.
When I first began practicing Yoga in 2004, I had no idea where the journey would lead. To be honest, I didn’t give it much thought. I came to love Yoga and since then, Yoga has led me to even greater love in the form of people, places and experiences.

Three Life Lessons – What I learned from Dying
I answered the phone one morning last December. The voice on the other side said, “Can you help me please angel? I’m dying and I know nothing at all about filling out paperwork for that.”
