I’m intentional about how I share with you. My goal isn’t to make you wonder in amazement at how deep and spiritual I am. My intention is to let you see that you have within you, all that you need to have a meaningful, rich, and deeply connected life. My deepest longing and what I am in service of is that you know who you are. Like, really know.
It’s been an interesting journey back to a studio led practice again. Many of you know that my path to Tantra and the training with Layla Martin began with a serious bout of burnout and frustration with teaching yoga. I was looking for something else, something to inspire me and I discovered the path of pleasure and awakened sexuality. Because of all of this, coming back to yoga studios hasn’t been without some major trepidation.

I’m tired of it.
I’ve been exploring my relationship with energy lately. Not just in the form of, “how do I find more?” but also in the form of trying to understand what depletes my energy, where do I feel it in my body, where do I notice that I’m stuck, how does my energy interact with the energy of others, how do I get unstuck?
I recall an anatomy lesson I once watched, the teacher was Leslie Kaminoff, and the lesson was that the breath is the single most impactful part of our yoga practice. He said that in order to create a profound shift in someone’s experience you only had to change how they were breathing. I’ve carried that lesson with me ever since, and have found myself integrating it into my teaching and coaching practice in surprising ways.
Last week, I shared quite vulnerably on my blog about how I struggled after an unsuccessful (monetarily) launch. The response to my sharing was amazing. I received several messages thanking me for being honest and expressing the reality of being an online entrepreneur. It’s been really heartwarming to see the value that I offered by sharing my pain around the launch of Magnetic.
Can we start this post with a big huge hallelujah that Mercury is no longer in retrograde AND that it appears that spring is finally upon us! It’s been one hell of a winter and I can say that I feel like I’m crawling my way out of a cave after months of hibernation. Today, I am feeling an aliveness buzzing through me and a renewed energy for my passions.
This week our province (and indeed, our entire country) has been in the darkness of terrrible tragedy. A bus crash on a rural highway involving a semi and the Humboldt Broncos hockey team bus took the lives of 15 people, leaving another 14 wounded, many critically. As I sit down to write this post, it’s 10:30 on a Tuesday night and I’ve just driven home 45 minutes from the city listening to the Current on CBC featuring several conversations about the accident. For many of us living in Saskatchewan, travelling the higways is a big part of our day to day lives and I don’t think there is a single person here who hasn’t taken pause to feel the profound impact this accident has had on this province.
When I first heard about the coaching profession, my first instinct was to question it. I couldn’t understand how hiring someone to help you sort out your life could be of any value - and perhaps it wasn’t even a legitimate profession. I figured there was enough self help, yoga, and holistic diet plans out there that one could probably just sort things out on their own. I also believed that results won through hard work and self comittment were bound to be more valuable results than just having someone else tell you what to do.
As I sit down to write this week’s post I am feeling a genuine lack of creativity.
I feel like all the things I want to say, are already being said so much better than I could say them.
I feel like thinking of something new to say might result in taking procrastination to a whole new level.
I am genuinely feeling stuck.
What’s your favourite season?
Mine is summer. Hands down. Granted, I live in a part of the world where summer is short and magical - we only get about 3 months of predictibly warm & sunny weather each year. The rest is windy, rainy, cold, snowy….
I suspect I’m not alone in my preference for sunny, warm days.
