A Decade

10 years ago I was introduced to yoga
9 years ago I expanded my horizons by traveling across Europe for 10 weeks visiting  28 cities in 15 countries
8 years ago I was diagnosed with a serious medical condition that I have since healed naturally
7 years ago I traveled to my ancestral homeland of Italy and developed overdue bonds with my sister
6 years ago I traveled to Costa Rica alone, realized it was my life's calling and passion to share yoga, graduated with my MBA and completed my first yoga teacher training program
5 years ago I packed my four bags, left my hometown of Houston, Texas, moved to NYC and continued my endeavor for growth
4 years ago I moved in with my best friend and love of my life
3 years ago I grieved when a friend who was like a little brother, one of my closest girlfriends, my dad and my dog departed this earthly plane. I completed my second yoga teacher training program and backpacked across the Himalayas of Northern India where I learned more about myself than ever before. I also brought another sweet dog into our home
2 years ago I decided to pack up my bags again to move across the country to SoCal to be closer to Mother Earth and was asked to be a wife
1 year ago I attended a life altering program where I was safely led to enlightenment, able to completely open my heart to the truth and beauty of myself and, therefore, others


This year we spoke carefully chosen vows and celebrated our love in a hammock under the starry night sky on a hidden beach on the Napali Coast.  I surrendered completely to my faith in the unknown and feel secure and safe in my realization that home is where the heart is. I've chosen to return to my hometown to follow my passion and dreams and more than thrilled to share this collective knowledge and experience with anyone who has interest. See you soon HoUSton

Himachal Pradesh, India: The Land of the Gods

Chandratal, Lake of the Moon I don't have the adequate words to describe the beauty and wonders of the Indian Himalayas and the Himachal Pradesh in a meaningful or comprehensible way. The diverse and remarkable landscape, scenery, culture, food, people and experience are beyond measure. What at first glimpse seems like complete disarray reveals itself as organized chaos - much more organized than a westerner might expect. I must admit that I, initially, had slight reservations about the trip in monsoon season; there is a great likelihood of landslides and floods on the perilous roads after all. I like to think that we were blessed with the beautiful unimpeded journey that we had. Blessed not only because we held positive thoughts, but also because it was due, dammit. After the loss of three close and precious souls in only four months, it was time for good things. Jamaica's Campsite at Chandratal with Rishi & Raju After reading countless travel experiences

I'm a Mom!

I had always known that when the time came I would want a natural birth without an epidural. So last October when I found out that I was pregnant I knew I had to do my research to find the right place to give birth. With the business of birth being so huge, it is really our duty to be our own advocates and research to understand the implications of the socially accepted birth practices in this country (USA). For me, a natural and unmedicated birth was of utmost importance but birthing centers are not covered by my insurance so I chose to deliver at a hospital in Houston that has a midwifery division and I am so happy with my choice! Life is a bit different these days.  I was just thinking about how my brain has been on sabbatical for what seems like an eternity - throughout the entirety of my first pregnancy and now the past couple of months. I am 4 months post-partum and am just now beginning to re-access the majority of my vocabulary. What better time than now to write out my birth
