Do you manifest, goal set or vision board? I do all of them! And, while I know that not everything will go exactly as I plan I love writing down my goal for the next year/s and trying them all on for size.
Did your parents ever tell you to stop complaining? Mine did! But, a good complaint that is heard can help you create the lifestyle you’ve been dreaming of. You know, the one that you’re complaining you don’t have?
What do you pack when you’re going to be gone for two weeks, two different countries, and you hate “checking” a bag? So glad you asked. This is one of my favorite things to talk about! I’ve never loved checking and Brad and I have been doing carryon since we both can remember. One time we were gone for 15 days, 3 countries, 2 different weather systems and 9 flights. We still carried on! And we didn’t take space up for others, here are some tips for you to try this out before the holiday travels start.
Mat Pilates outside! What could be better? It’s not every day that we have the opportunity to do a workout outside that not a run, walk, hike, Paddleboard etc. Most people do Pilates indoors.

However, if you’re not prepared, doing Pilates outside can be quite the chore.

I had no idea when I first discovered Pilates that I would ever become a Pilates instructor. For whatever reason, it didn’t occur to me that I could change careers. And, all I knew is that I loved doing Pilates. But then, I took this leap to become an instructor and I loved it so much I never looked back. Ever. Because I love teaching Pilates so much.

The most frequent question I get when I tell people about my Pilates retreats in Siem Reap, Cambodia, the home of Angkor Wat and many more Temples is “why Cambodia?” And I get it.
