So over this snow, but excited for tomorrow!!! Iโ€™ll be guiding Yoga Sculpt tomorrow morning at 9:30 and Hip Hop Yoga at 8:30 in the evening. So much fun and so needed after sitting at home.


8:30 p.m. class is cancelled tonight. Iโ€™m so bummed. Happy Spring Equinox. Stay safe and warm. Hopefully, the weather doesnโ€™t get too bad. I miss my #empoweryogis


Happy Spring Equinox!

Regardless of the weather, Iโ€™m excited for class this evening. Come join me tonight at 8:30 p.m. as we honor this sacred time of year. ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ•‰๏ธ๐ŸŒžโ„๏ธ


EXCITED! Tomorrow at noon I will be guiding a free yoga class at the Hyped in Health Expo. This class will focus on breathing, movement, building a connection of mind, body, and spirit. If youโ€™re in the area, please come and check it out. There are number of vendors, speakers, and other fitness related classes. Please go on over to @healthconsciousdiva and have a peek of all thatโ€™s to come. Hope to see you there!


Subbing the Intro to Hot Yoga this evening at 6 p.m. I cannot wait! Please join me at @empoweryoganj


Luna Love is halfway full. Thank you!
Please join myself and Irene (@verenice1215) on March 31st at 11 a.m. where we salute the blue moon along with sharing a bit of dialogue, meditation, and some light snacks. This is our way of saying thank you to all of you who have supported us. This is a free class, so if you know a friend who needs a reminder to โ€œspring forwardโ€ please bring them along. Thank you to @empoweryoganj for creating such a great community of people. Please join us and remember to sign-up! Love and light.


In an effort to make better choices as a legging consumer, I stumbled upon @girlfriendcollective and decided to give them a try. My leggings and sports bra came today and they feel amazing. The price is about 30-40 dollars cheaper than other popular choices AND their advertising includes people of all colors and sizes (something that matters to me) along with having a pretty good set of company values. Check them out. They didnโ€™t pay me or give me anything free. I also really liked the bag the clothing came in, not sure what Iโ€™m going to do with it, but itโ€™s pretty cool.


A class of three. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ
I know itโ€™s not popular, but I enjoy the times when class can be intimate. I enjoy when we can hear each other breathe. I especially enjoy when we can sit and chat after class is over. Class was over at 10:45 and I didnโ€™t leave until almost about 11:30. This is how it was when I first started teaching and although I enjoy large groups, I also feel kind of blessed when we can all sit and really get to know one another. Thank you for breathing with me. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ•‰๏ธ

Empower Yoga

1 minute before walking in to guide the 6 p.m. class I get a text from my cousin that our cousin has passed away. Time is truly an illusion.
First part of class, I was on autopilot, replaying moments of the past. Trying to rationalize why so many people that Iโ€™ve known, loved, and shared space with have left this world. I snapped out of it after hearing that second breath I ask of those who allow me to guide them. That second breath is for those who are not here and though I nearly lost it, I remembered...I AM STILL HERE. If Iโ€™m here, sheโ€™s here. We are eternity.

Breathe. Breathe. Breathe. You have life. Live it. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ
Shout out to all my angels. This is an old video where I had time between classes to play around. This song always reminds of the people who cheer me on, both living and passed on. As Khalid sings... โ€œThe angels give me strength
And I'm not giving up
So I wipe away my tears
I unveil my pain
They're brushing off my shoulders
And I hold on to their stain
I've been seeing angelsโ€


This...took about 3 years. Trust the process and donโ€™t force it. Breathe. Hold that plank or drop to your knees, but never force anything (relationships, bad food, leggings, or chaturanga)
Guiding classes tonight at 6 p.m. @empoweryoganj. Fridayโ€™s are always a good time. Trust me!


The women that came before me. The woman who walks with me. The woman who will carry all of us with her as she grows...
There is nothing like the tribe of women. May we support and love each other. ๐Ÿ’œ
Honor those that came before you and love those that come after you. You will live forever through them. Make your eternity a positive one.


Shifting my focus to future warmer days and excited to be provided yoga for @healthconsciousdivaโ€™s HYPED Health Expo. This is a free event and perfect chance to start, restart, or maintain your way to a much more healthy lifestyle.
This event kicks off at 10 a.m. on the 17th of March in Ewing, NJ at the Hollowbrook Community Center. Hope to see you there. ๐Ÿ’œ
