My Wednesday Walk ~ Solitude is a Positive Place to Be! :)
Today my Wednesday Walk takes place on a tranquil beach in Koh Samui, Thailand. After 2 weeks of teaching and enjoying the company of many people everyday, I am now embracing a solo vacation. In solitude, I am able to tune into myself, be in my own flow, and really take care of my own needs. for me, this is very much needed.
I recently came across this great article by Dr. Annette Colby which I totally resonate with. Here are the top 5 reasons we should spend time alone:
1) Time to Rediscover Self & Reevaluate Priorities
2) Bring Back Your Lust for Life
3) Time to Breathe & Release Stress Levels
4) Be With Your Own Feelings
5) Be Independent
It has been an interesting adventure spending so much time alone & I especially enjoy the reaction when others find out that I am traveling solo. Please enjoy this week’s video blog on why solitude is important in my life.
Please do leave a comment below, sharing some of the ways you enjoy spending time alone, or if being alone is challenging for you, I’d love to know why that is.

My Wednesday Walk ~ Hi From Hong Kong... A Dream Come True! :)
Today’s Wednesday Walk is not my typical stroll with my dog Chants, rather I am joined by my new friends & students in Hong Kong. It’s truly a dream come true, as I always desired traveling with my trade ~ now, I am doing it! This month I am leading the Next Generation Yoga Teacher Training for over 30 students.
Invited to come teach in Hong Kong by Jenny from Gecko Yoga, I realize that dreams come true when we align ourselves with the right people who love, adore & believe in us. Enjoy my hello from Hong Kong!
I’d love to hear what is your dream & who can you align yourself with to make it come true? Please leave me a comment below

My Wednesday Walk ~ Be Present :)
As I prepared for my 3-week journey to Asia, I noticed that the busier I became, the easier it was to lose sight of the present moment. I found myself rushing, and in my haste I was breaking & misplacing things. I was able to easily recognize this so I paused, acknowledged it, and reminded myself to get present & appreciate each moment.
I have some special tools that I use to bring myself back into the present moment.
What are some ways that you get back in to the present moment? I’d love to hear from you ~ please leave a comment below.
