🌑YEAR 0.🌑The Saturday my friend @waltlindveld & my boyfriend said, &lsquoHey, let&rsquos take a couple pictures in case you smarten up, quit your job & start this thing you clearly need to start.&rsquo I rolled my eyes, told them I didn&rsquot have time as I had to run to a training (just for curiosity & passion, of course), and that I would never quit my Job as VP at Morgan Stanley. 'Shut up,&rsquo Walt exclaimed, 'put out a mat, keep your teaching clothes on and just do something that inspires you.&rsquo I was still in my only @lululemon outfit, one I had saved a year to buy, after teaching another sold out free class to friends, so I said, 'FINE, but be fast-this is a waste of time.&rsquo 📸this is the 1st of 4 taken, 2 of which ended up as covers of various editions of my book. Now we are officially 💥celebrating EIGHT YEARS💥and I can&rsquot believe how time as flown. I&rsquove decided to take us for a walk down memory lane leading up to our 8 YEAR BIRTHDAY PARTY, 13 MAY. Tickets in bio. Thank you Walt and that random annoying boyfriend (who is now my husband) for pushing me to who and where I needed to be. I 💙you both and ALL OF YOU who I&rsquove met since YEAR ZERO TO TODAY. #RETOX 💋

Been Taking A Lot of Hits Lately?
I love the ocean. You guys know that. Back when I was a kid (well, and now), I would spend as much time as possible in the water, body surfing and boogie boarding like my dad taught us, pretending I was a mermaid or a surfer, and just being free. I’m obsessed waves, their power and their tranquility, their ruthless chaos and their serene order.
That said, I once got brutally taken down by the waves. There I was at Surfside beach, in my neon green and neon blue speedo (it was hot! Ok, maybe not), having a blast, when all of the sudden the undercurrent pulled me back in, only to get have me get smacked by a large wave. Forced under water, I remembered all my father’s lessons on how to respect and play with the tides and the sea in these times, and managed to come back up. As soon as I did, I got sucked back in and smacked again. The next thing I knew, I was trapped under water, torn and tangled in the tides and currents, scraping along the sand, with no idea where was up, how to catch a breath, or how to get out. I thought I was drowning.
Apparently so did everyone else, as the next thing I knew, I was laying on the sand, team of seemingly good looking East coast lifeguards, mom, dad and Uncle Buck hovering over me and my speedo, now full of so much sand that I looked like I had gotten shot by thousands of BB guns.
Modern life can often make us feel like we are drowning. Drowning in stress and problems, challenges and goals. We try and try to stay afloat, try to boogie board ourselves across all the financial, familial, psychological, medical and, well ,just blegh trials of life, and but sometimes there are phases like mine of late where you just keep getting smacked down over and over again. And after a while, it’s close to impossible to know where up is, let alone how to come up for air.
This all takes a toll on our immune system – the physical, tangible one and the emotional, intangible one. Back then I needed the lifeguards to drag me out, and my dad to give me the confidence to immediately go back in and face the next round of waves. Now I need #RETOX.
RETOX is about giving you the strength and wisdom to find the light, the space and direction to find and take that breath, that breath you need to survive. I know it can feel like you will never find your way out when you are being tossed and mangled by the tides and waves of life, but you will. And I want to help you.
Join me this month for a deep dive into boosting our IMMUNITY of body, mind and life. I’ll guide you through tips to help you get strong and energetic from the inside out, no matter what current you are caught in or wave you see coming your way.
It’s daunting when you are trapped under water, but I survived, and so will you.

It’s In Me.

To be happy. To be strong. To be loved.
It&rsquos in me to face fear.
To win. To lose. To be he. To be she.
It&rsquos in me to heal.
To be healed.
It&rsquos in me to be vulnerable.
To be brave. To be timid. To be fierce.
It&rsquos in me.
It&rsquos in me to be me be me because I am me.
It&rsquos in me. I am me. I love me.
