Serious debate happened last night about how to pronounce Teva AND whether they're cool. I am firmly team TEE-vah and yes. LOTS of my customers said TEH-vah and NOPE. We're both half right. Can't believe I'll be on a sandy beach in the Caribbean soon. Teva, take me away!

Had a fantastic evening at the farewell reception tonight. Beachbody went all out for this fun evening on the beach complete with drinks, food, dancing & fireworks!! I cannot wait till the next trip. This has been so much fun but tomorrow I head home back to my babies.
1 year ago when I set the goal to earn this trip I had no idea how amazing it would be. I'm so thankfully for this amazing opportunity
Had that post sweat glow going on got some bike time in and although cleanse days recommend "light activity" I had so much energy! #day10 and I'm grateful for some heavy mindset shifts that are going on. I'm working out because I want to honor my body, not because I hate it @loriharder This challenge is shifting my ! #lh14daychallenge
I've spent the last weeks at @SevenSpringsRetreats in the majestic Smoky Mountains of TN. I was honored to be one of the teachers at a 200hr yoga teacher training through @kulacollective - What I've learned most about being a teacher is that I'm still a student. There were many highlights to my time at Seven Springs and near the top of the list was meeting this man, Yona, a full blooded Cherokee Elder from a tribe in North Carolina. I was able to share and pray in two incredible sweat lodges. This morning, my last day, as our morning practice came to a close, the hills sang and echoed the sound of Yona's voice and drum, singing ancient songs from his people.
There are times you experience a gift a pure magic in life. I had that gift this morning. It will be a treasure I carry in my heart forever.
Looking forward to seeing Yona again, to share wisdom, prayer, stories, and of course -- Sweat Lodge!
"A moment arrives when we look backwards, remember the beginning of our journey, and laugh at ourselves. We have managed to grow, although we traveled the path for reasons that were very futile.
God uses loneliness to teach us about living together.
Sometimes he uses anger so that we can understand the infinite value of peace.
At other times he uses tedium, when he wants to show us the importance of adventure and leaving things behind.
God uses silence to teach us about the responsibility of what we say.
At times he uses fatigue so that we can understand the value of waking up.
At other times he uses sickness to show us the importance of health.
God uses fire to teach us about water.
Sometimes he uses earth so that we can understand the value of air
And at times he uses death when he wants to show us the importance of life"~Paulo Coehlo .
Being successful (doesn't matter how you define it) isn't about being able avoid life or keep it from happening to you, instead it's probably more about celebrating the ability to co-exist with contrast
