Due to Irma, we have rescheduled this workshop and now offer TWO chances to jump in! Join us Saturday, September 30 from 3-6pm OR Saturday, October 21 from 1-4pm for our Restorative Yoga Workshop!
This workshop will explain the numerous benefits, modifications and techniques within the restorative yoga practice. You will learn WHY restorative is so therapeutic in the midst of our busy lives and how to practice at home to truly settle into a restful state.
Restorative yoga is a yoga method using props and long holds in restful postures to open the body in a more passive way. This practice is designed to release deep-tissue tension, re-align the bones/joints within the body and to calm the nervous system, leaving us feeling more grounded, spacious and clear. We use props to creatively and comfortably support the body in each posture in order to facilitate relaxation and restoration. Restorative yoga is great for those healing from injury or illness.
This workshop will begin with a discussion on the practice of restorative yoga to build a better understanding to the practice and show tips on how to build a personal practice. The discussion will be followed by a two hour restorative practice, allowing ample time to build and settle into several postures.
You will also have the option to purchase your very own studio-grade props at a wholesale cost ($50 for one bolster, two blocks and a blanket) to take your practice home with you!
Cost: $35 for the workshop alone/$85 for workshop and props

It's strange, really. After so many formidable mornings there comes one where you wake up, and things are just, different. No reason. No special timing. You just wake up and things, are different. There are no birds singing you out of bed or magical fairy dust, you're not happy; but suddenly and very prominently, nothings missing. There's no need for anything but that initially stretch and yawn. Just like that.. It's different.
Your veggies are calling! This card is a gentle reminder that your body deserves the nourishment that can only come from fresh, organic, whole foods.
Isn't it funny how we usually "treat" ourselves with food, drinks, and substances that actually punish our bodies? Instead, indulge in something nourishing today!
Fruits and veggies contain precious oxygen, needed to clean your blood, power your brain, and ward off disease (cancer cells are extremely low in oxygen!). Treat yourself to a smoothie, gourmet salad, or gorgeous green juice today. Notice the shifts in your body and emotions as you integrate that healing, living energy into your system. Buon apetito!
Wake up. Sit. Breathe. Connect within to your true nature of love.
Meditation is a practice of becoming aware and focusing attention. You sit in silence gently noticing each inhale and exhale training your mind to be fully in the moment.
Where your attention goes your life will flow. Let the beauty in your life bloom from the inside out. 🌷🌺🌻🌼🌹

Happy first day of autumn! It's getting chilly here and it's officially that time of year when the sniffles start to hit. Fight of that under the weather feeling with @weledauk's top tip: delicious hot water and lemon 🍋
Today I’m putting Spearmint in the spotlight!
One of the strongest benefits of Spearmint oil is that it promotes digestion and helps reduce occasional stomach upset. When experiencing periodic stomach discomfort or after eating a large meal, dilute one drop of Spearmint oil in 4 fl. oz of liquid and drink. Spearmint oil can also be taken internally by dropping the oil into a Veggie Capsule and ingesting.
Feeling the blues? Try using some Spearmint oil to brighten up your day. Spearmint oil consists of chemical components such as carvone and limonene. These organic constituents have energizing and uplifting properties. Use Spearmint oil topically or aromatically to receive the mood uplifting benefits of these components.
Before leaving your house for the day, apply Spearmint essential oil to your toothbrush before you brush your teeth. Once you’ve brushed your teeth, you will be ready to take on the day with fresh breath and a hint of mint in your mouth. Spearmint oil is an ideal essential oil to incorporate in oral care routines due to its ability to freshen breath and cleanse the mouth.
Are you interested in learning more about or purchasing purchasing Spearmint or any other doTERRA oils? Send me a message! I'd love to help you on your wellness journey!
IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF FALL.
IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF FALL.
IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF FALLLLLLL. 🍂🎃 Booties, flannels, and top knots for all!! Currently celebrating with a pumpkin macchiato -- almond milk + 1 pump of syrup instead of 2.👌🏼 #HappyFall#basicbitchstarterpack#yaass
🍂The Autumnal Equinox is upon us🍂. You can feel it arriving with the crisp September air, settling of emotions, and return to routine. As it is with all changes in the natural world, we can choose to honor or resist.
We are inextricably connected with the world that we live in. In order to flow with transition, we must respond to the changes with grace.
Here are 3 essential ways to transition with the changing season:
1. Gratitude 🙏
.As the fruits of our labours are harvested, it is time to give thanks for all that is produced and shared in our lives. Perhaps put on a harvest meal, or write a gratitude list daily for the next 7 days.
2. Forgiveness 🤗
.During times of transition, we must let go of the old and the things that weigh us down. To start, look at how you judge yourself. Forgive yourself for this judgment and release this need to be better or different than you are. Remember, you are perfect. Everything that you are and that you do is leading you towards lasting happiness.
3. Balance 🌓
.When we are in the process of change, we often hold onto the past while bringing in the new. This can leave us feeling overwhelmed as there is not enough space for both. The key is to embrace the NOW. Focus on the day-to-day and listen to the needs of your body and mind. Self-care is of the utmost importance. Avoid saying yes to things that will create more overwhelm.
I wanted to continue the conversation of social media and medicine. What I want to focus on today, is the Why - why do you post, why do you share what you share, and what's your end purpose with it. For me, I have a few goals with my account: 1) I want to show others what a life in medical school is like and hopefully help the next generation get to this point 2) I want to be a part of a community that lifts each other up to get through the rough points and celebrate the high points (I really think we have an amazing community on here of amazing med professionals) and 3) I want to document this part of my life, have a creative outlet, and give voice to things that I think need speaking up for. So for the next week, I am going to reflect on each and every post to make sure it aligns with my goals, and I ask that you do the same. If you have an medical Insta account - me know what you're why is... and if you follow me and don't have your own public account - please let me know what I can be doing better to adhere to my goals.

It's ok to feel sad; there is a lot to feel sad about in the world. It's also ok to feel joy; there is a lot to feel joyful about in the world.
However, feeling sad can be painful, so there might be the tendency to not want to go there. And that's ok as a coping strategy...some of the time. But when we repeatedly deny ourselves the need to feel this emotion, we can start to feel numb. And not just numb to sadness, but also to the joy in life.
There are two sides to a piece of paper, and you can't have the front without the back.
To live and experience life fully is to embrace the full range of our humanness, front and back.
