One Breath (Cycle) at a Time

There are mountains and valleys of wisdom in a single breath cycle. Before filling to abundance, the lungs must empty. And you can not receive more unless, at some point, you stop taking in and release.
Same goes with the moon cycle. And the seasons. And women’s cycles.


One Thing Led to Another…

I’ll never forget that time back in 2011, when in the magical land of Brooklyn, I took my first Bikram class with a teacher that will remain unnamed. Let me be clear, this wasn’t my first class. At that point, I’d been practicing Bikram yoga for about 4 years, and teaching it for about 3. No, this story is about the first time I took class with said teacher. And the wild way in which my life changed.


Wild Woman Fest Playlists

I love that I get to tap into my inner DJ when I get to lead a movement class. And I got to do tons of it at the last Wild Woman Fest.

Below are the playlists I used each day during Qoya + during my Sacred Self Care workshop. They are classified by the daily theme of the fest. Enjoy!
