This Divine Life

Say yes to the adventures on your path and allow yourself to be joyful, because in every moment, in every circumstance, there is miraculous good!
Awake to the beauty of life from the sweet spot of timelessness. Somewhere over the epic Greek sea chasing the orange half moon and wooing the planets above, lost in love, blissed out between antiquity and a fruit n cheese plate sent to our table courtesy of the Gods. Warm summer night breezes kiss our souls and stir the avra (energy). The mythology is alive. Root into the vitality of this moment, rise up out of your story and open your heart to the infinite.  (at Cafe Bourtzi, Skiathos)

Pause. Shift your awareness to all the blessings in your life. Let the stories go and meet me in the present moment.

Divine Yoga - 46 Minute Vinyasa Flow with Breathwork & Meditation - All Levels

Hello Friends,
Today is a milestone for me as I have just posted my first Divine Yoga practice online. This 46 minute video is a culmination and a beginning as the timing coincides with a turning point in my life and my teaching. I am graduating on to the next stage of my work and this offering will remain as a testament to all that I have learned thus far and all that I wish to share with you!
Years ago divine inspiration sparked in my heart and I was blessed with a vision and intention to a create a series called “This Divine Life” that would uplift, inspire and educate people around the world. This guided yoga practice is one of the first steps on my journey of a thousand miles! This process has taught me about confidence, accepting imperfection, teamwork, patience and letting go. I wonder what it will teach you?

People say they want to try yoga or come back to the practice followed by “but I don’t have time” or “but i’ve never done it and i’m not ready to go to a studio” or “but I don’t have money for classes”. Well this video is for you, please receive this offering, make it a practice and share it with your friends and family. My intention is that it will bring you health, peace and clarity on your own journey of a thousand miles.

P.S I am currently teaching yoga and standup paddleboard yoga in Skiathos, Greece! On the youtube channel there is some video of my adventures to date. I intend to film a yoga and travel video before I leave Greece in October. If you would like to support the filming of “This Divine Life” here is a donation link …   Paypal Donation

Greeks go hard! They party all night, drink coffee all day, apparently sleep only in the winter and the diet … oh boy … i may be the only non meat eater on the island. My lover literally saved my life by sending me my #amazinggrass #green #superfood .

Another full moon in Skiathos! Some fun facts about my first 30 days in Greece:
1. Even dark-skinned African queens can have allergic reactions to too much sun. And apparently our hair (arms &legs in this case) can turn blonde in a matter of weeks. 
2. No one told me not to flush toilet paper. So three weeks into my stay my shower now drains. It’s always all connected lol. 
3. Washboard abs really mean you work the f out when you have to handwash ALL your laundry. 
4. The dairy in Greece is so fresh and pure that I can have milk and yogurt everyday. Getting gready and ordering a milkshake though is not advised.
5. People are people the world over. A few will try to get as much as possible from you, only thinking of their gain. Others are always judging, angry & pessimestic. Thankfully, most of the people i’ve met in Greece exude this beautiful spirit of philoxinia … the epitome of hospitality, friendship and kindness. I love Greece ♥ 
6. Home is where the heart is. This means I can be in more than one place all the time ;-)
