What to Do in Your Sacred Space

Aug 17, 2021

Last week I shared HOW to create a Sacred Space and this week I am sharing WHAT to do when you get there! 

A Sacred Space is a special place within your home that may include an altar, yoga mat, candles, and any other items that are significant and meaningful for you.  This space is your space to ground, center, and reconnect with yourself. 

Creating a Sacred Space and then visiting it often will help you reduce stress and anxiety while also giving life to your dreams and desires.  It is a necessary space that should be as integral to daily life as your kitchen and bathroom.  If you do not yet have a Sacred Space, click here to learn how to create one.

Here's What to Do In Your Sacred Space: 


I find it’s so powerful to open your sacred practice and then close it when you’re done.  This creates a sacred container and encourages your system and soul to really drop in.  Here is a great way to open your practice:

  • Sit...

How to Create a Sacred Space

Aug 10, 2021

Do you have a Sacred Space in your home...a space that is just for you and that is home to your daily self-care practice?  This is a space to go to when you are in need of reflection, healing, soothing, clarity, energy, connection, or alignment with your higher self.  This space is YOUR space to be YOU.  And this space is a safe space to explore what you need and want.  It is also a place to explore movement, breath, and soulful connection with yourself.

If you don't yet have a Sacred Space, here's how to create one:

Designate the Space

  • Pick somewhere specific in your home that can be your sacred space (not a space you share with others). Try to find somewhere that is free of distractions, such as electronics, work, and daily tasks. This space does not need to be a room, it can simply be a space within a room. 

Your Sacred Space Can Be:

  • Where you can see it — across from your bed, desk, sofa or kitchen table
  • Wherever you have room...

How to up level your morning routine

Jul 20, 2021

Last week I talked about how including a self-care practice in your morning routine can increase your focus, energy, and good vibes. 

This week I want to share with you the attributes of a powerful morning routine plus some self-care practice ideas!

Attributes of a Powerful Morning Routine

When crafting your morning routine, consider the following:

  • Wake up at the same time everyday (even on the weekends).  This will make waking up to do your morning practice much much easier.
  • Do the same morning routine every single day.  If you have a different morning routine everyday, you use up your limited decision-making capacity (a real thing) to decide what to do everyday and how to do it.  If it's the same, you don't have to think about it and thus have more decision-making power for later in the day.
  • Include connection time with your body, mind and heart.
  • Get quiet and listen to your inner voice.

Self-Care Practice Ideas

Want to be more productive? Try this.

Jul 13, 2021

Does it really matter if you just roll out of bed, scramble as fast as you can to find something to wear in an organized pile of unfolded laundry, make a coffee to go, feed the dog, and run out the door?


If you begin your day stressed, unfocused and rushed your day will feel stressed, unfocused, and rushed.  If you start it intentionally, however, you set yourself up to feel focused, centered, and energized throughout your day.

Maybe you've already heard that many successful people say that waking up early and having a consistent morning routine is part of their success. 

That is because the morning is when you set the tone for the rest of the day.

When you begin your day with an intentional practice (whether it be meditation, yoga, journaling, art, or being in nature):

  • you are more likely to make healthy eating choices throughout the day
  • you cultivate the needed energy and focus to knock difficult tasks out first
  • you make your self-development and...

Top 3 Strategies for Starting a Daily Practice

Jul 06, 2021

One of the most popular questions I get is "How do I create a daily practice?" 

I love this question and I love that so many of you are asking it! 

What that tells me is that you see an opportunity to feel better...more grounded, connected and aligned...through daily self-care. 

So here are my top 3 strategies for starting a daily self-care practice, whether that include meditation, yoga, art, writing, or being in nature.

  1. Make all decisions ahead of time
    • If you wait to make decisions about your practice at the time of your practice, you will get overwhelmed and GIVE UP.  So, determine ahead of time:
      1. What days this week you will do your practice.
      2. What time you will practice on those days (be specific about your start time).
      3. How long you will practice for (10 minutes is a great place to start and hugely beneficial).
      4. What you will wear, what props you will need, and where in your home (or outside) you will practice.
  2. Focus on small wins
    • Set small...

How to Improve Your Balance

Jun 30, 2021

Here’s something you may not know….walking is actually controlled falling.  Think about it...every time you take a step forward, you fall forward until the back foot steps forward and catches you.  To bring that foot forward we rely on our balance and our coordination.  If we don’t have it, we lose our balance and fall. 

To make our walking (or controlled falling) as steady as possible, we need to improve our balance.  When we work on our balance in specific ways, we learn how to better engage with various terrain and situations around us.  

So today we are focusing on...

How to improve your balance so that you can walk, run, and do all types of movement with more control and coordination.

Now, practicing balancing poses on a consistent basis will help you tremendously but there’s also something else you can do and it has to do...

Change the Trajectory of Your Day

Apr 04, 2021

Because we are purpose-driven beings, we continually cycle through periods of questioning who we are, what we want, and how we want to live.

So I invite you to lean on your practice as if it is a lifeline...as if it holds the answers to all of your questions...because it does.

When you come to your practice with intention and commitment, you develop a sacred connection with your unique perspective and innate gifts. You also tap into your inner wisdom which lives in your cells from previous generations and also comes from your own lived experience.

Everything you need is inside of you. And you have the ability to access your wisdom through your practice.

And you only need a few minutes a day to access this vast expanse within you. 5 minutes on your mat is enough to change the trajectory of your day and, overtime, your life.

You will find those precious 5+ minutes most reliably in the morning.  Beginning your day with your practice infuses every remaining minute of your...

4 Really Good Reasons to Wake Up Earlier

Mar 25, 2021

I have never been a morning person.  Ever.  For as long as I can remember I have LOVED sleeping in, waking when I was good and ready, and hanging out in bed, reading, staring out the window or just curling up under the covers for 5 more minutes. 

That all changed when my daughter was born and I was forced to not only be a morning person but a night owl.  Sleep was rare and precious in those first few years but I rallied...surprised that I had the ability to wake early and make it through my days with 2 hours of sleep under my belt.

But then I got really tired....from sleep deprivation but also from not having any personal space.  That led to me being grouchy, impatient with everything and everyone, and a feeling that I would go crazy, literally, if I didn't get some space to myself.  Something had to change. 

Now, maybe you don’t have kids but we all have had some experience that has challenged us...

6 Steps to Creating a Home Practice Space

Mar 15, 2021

It’s difficult to show up for a regular yoga practice if there is no dedicated space to make it happen.

For one it’s easy to forget about it if you don’t see the props and supplies laid out.

Second, if everything is stored out of site and you have to pull out your mat and props from cupboards and drawers and it feels like a chore to do so, you won’t do it.

Third, instead of your practice feeling sacred, which comes from claiming a space for it in your home, it feels optional and not that important...and therefore you don’t do it.

So, if you’re desiring a daily (or almost daily) home practice but are unsure how to make it happen...start with making space for it in your home.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. SCOPE OUT YOUR SPACE: Walk around your home and look for a space that would accommodate your mat. Make sure the space is big enough so that you won’t bang your elbows and feet on furniture. You do NOT need a room for your practice, just a...
