I love being among nature and the elements. Hiking and learning to surf. Podcasting addict and enjoy a quality coffee and Incense burning. Mindful movement and deep breaths. Crossfit, dancing every where and anytime. Yoga. Lying in the sunshine and listening to the wind in the trees. Beats in my ears are like the beat of my heart and inspire my teachings. Brunch is my favourite meal of the day. Quality time over quantity time. Being a student. Seeing the joy in the small things and connecting with others.
Practicing gratitude daily and always acknowledging the joy in small things. Butterflies when I am about to Level Up and do something out of my comfort zone. Meeting and connecting with others.
