What rocks your bliss? 

Giving life my all. Feeling totally in purpose with my mission. Having honest, real inspiring conversations. Choosing to be happy + light no matter what's going on in my life. 

Describe your perfect day? 

I aim to wake up everyday believing that TODAY will be the best day of my life. Every. Damn. Day. Usually my day includes a juicy morning routine with chanting and meditation, teaching yoga, session with clients, and writing. I let the Universe take care of the rest. 

Share a huge goal you are rocking? 

Getting my life {emotionally, financially} ready to make the leap to move to sunny southern California to be with my man and rock out the warm weather, the sisterhood of women who are on a mission, and the organic living. 

How do you celebrate you? 

I see life as one big celebration. Stress less and have more fun. I celebrate me by doing what I love, spending time with people I adore, and when shit hits the fan, empowering myself to learn the lessons instead of get stuck in the negative. Oh and wine. There's definitely wine in there somewhere.

What inspires you? 

Women changing the world. Chanting. Watching a sunset. Holding my man's hands. Reading a good book. Heart to heart conversations. Jumping into the ocean. Sisterhood around a campfire. Skylines. Sweaty Ashtanga session. Love.

What is your power outfit? 

It changes! Sometimes I am digging my divine feminine and I love adorning my body in soft tops and a flowing skirt. Other days I so rather wear my reliable wunder unders and cool racerback. But generally, for me it's not so much about the clothes but about my attitude. An open, courageous and willing attitude is the most important outfit you can wear.

SING! What is your karaoke song? 

Semi-Charmed Life by Third Eye Blind hands down. I am a rock star in my car. Outside of that, you don't want me to sing, trust me.

How do you handle setbacks? 

My dad taught me a really cool trick to handling rejections and setbacks that I've carried with me for as long as I can remember. He told me "you have one week to be just ok with the situation. the next week, you flourish". By being "just ok" he meant to allow yourself to be with the feelings of rejection. Pretending you don't hurt actually makes things worse. So I give myself time to wallow. And be angry and bitter. Sometimes I don't need a week, sometimes a couple hours or a day is sufficient. The point is to honor the pain + disappointment. After I feel like I've had enough time, I make a conscious decision to move forward. To accept the challenges as a gift and to keep shining my light. The Universe has my back so I know there's nothing to lose and everything to gain by continuing to give life my best.

Gut reaction, what do you think of FAILURE? 

It sucks. And it's a lot of people's absolute worse fear. The crazy part is our fear of failure is worse that failure itself. 

3 ways your rock the self LOVE.

1) I make me-time priority. Journaling, reading, meditating. They're daily non-negotiables in my household.

2) Sisterhood - I purposefully surround myself with women who can support me, love me and keep me real. 

3) Time outside. Nature heals everything. There is nothing like staring at the ocean or being surrounded by big trees to keep you humble and remind you of what's truly important.
