I'm still glowing from spending a week with such beautiful and inspiring people from around the world at my Spring retreat with Yoga Weeks Barcelona. I'm in awe of the human spirit and how incredibly authentic we can connect to ourselves and to each other, if given the chance. So often consumed with daily demands, we often forget that we need to invest in our own well-being. We need to consciously give ourselves the space and time to retreat, relax and recharge.
"At the centre of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” – Lao Tzu
It wasn't always about Om-ing, buying organic and being a vegetarian in my life. Twelve years ago, in Los Angeles B.C. (Before Children), on the outside I definitely looked as if I had it all - and in many ways I did. I had the financial freedom as a Real Estate entrepreneur, following a budding Entertainment career, owned a condo in one of the top Westside cities by the beach, drove a European convertible and was mother to two adorable Yorkshire puppies. So I was happy right? No. That could not have been further from the truth. It took time, dedication and investing in myself to learn how to steer a better course and live more mindfully.
