This weekend, along with Kayte from Mass Musings, I will be at the WELL Summit in Boston. For the first time since Yoga Teacher Training, I have the opportunity to dedicate all of my attention to my practice, and I am SO EXCITED. There are some really interesting workshops happening, and I can't wait to dive in, and put in the work. While I try to live my yoga every day, (#yogaeverydamnday, anyone?), I am looking forward to a few days of wellness, learning, meditation, yoga, nourishing foods, and good company.
I've been feeling all the yogalove this week preparing for my wellness weekend. I've been switching up my practice a little bit to keep things fresh. I didn't have the best week (asana-wise) last week, so I wanted to make sure this one felt better. I went to TWO different studios (South Boston Yoga & Down Under Yoga School), and even tried an Iyengar-style Rope Wall Class. It was super different from my usual Vinyasa Flow practice, but left my shoulders feeling AH-MAZING.
And then, my lovely friend Meagan of Boston-based mat company, Mello Mae, gave me one of her jute mats to try (you may have seen it pop up in my Instagram feed)! So far I am loving it! It's lightweight (which is important to me), super grippy, eco-friendly, and super cute :) Expect a full review soon, but I just couldn't wait to share it with you. For every mat sold, Mello Mae donates $1 to a health + wellness charity - how awesome is that? Plus, you can support the community + shop local - hooray!
My asana practice isn't the only thing that got a kickstart this week. If you take a look around - you may notice things are a little different. I've been working behind the scenes to spruce it up around here. Bear with me as things may change in the next few weeks, but I hope you're digging the new look, and the site is easy to use.
Peace + love,
