In response to some requests I’ve been getting, I’m excited to share two regulation tools, immediately available.
Things are really hard right now.
Scary, confusing, disappointing, frustrating and so much more.
So much unknown.
We all know panic doesn’t help your immune system, nor your state of mind.
Thankfully, here we are with so many helpful practices right at our fingertips, and the magic of technology to keep us close.
LIVE Morning Meditation
Because of all the things we know:
- Meditation changes your brainwaves.
- It’s been proven to reduce the stress response in the body.
- It can improve sleep.
- It helps us practice impulse control and increase our tolerance for the unknown.
- In and/or after meditation, we can experience calm, peace, even bliss.
- A little bit is enough.
Let’s be together
For two weeks starting tomorrow, March 18th, every weekday morning at 7:30 am, I will be on YouTube Live and you can join me. We can sit together in real time (or anytime with the recording). When you arrive on YouTube, click the “Video” tab and look for the word LIVE in red. That’s where we’ll meet.
We’ll do some kind of regulation technique, there will be a theme or focus, sometimes it will be more guided, sometimes it will be more quiet.
It will all happen in under 15 minutes.
Tomorrow we start with what I call “Of course” meditation.
I’d love for you to be there. Bedhead welcome.
Self Care Kits
Soothing the nervous system is so important — for our immune systems AND our mental health.
In the past, I’ve put together self care bundles with my colleague, Tanicia. We decided the current state of things warranted special mini bundles at a reduced price.
So you can care for your sweet body in and out, the gift of self-blessing.
We curate products that have a big self-regulation payoff.
In Ayurveda, cleansing products like sugar scrubs and salt baths are detoxifying, while rich body oils and nasya are soothing and grounding. A daily staple in my own care is herbal tea and seasonal spice mix on my meals.
All products are made with organic ingredients and love.

You are in your yoga practice, the practice that has helped you prepare for hard times, to do hard things.
Now is the time to not only stay with your practice, but double-down to build resilience, increase you mental immunity and stay in your most aligned state.
We’re all in this together — I’m here, reaching out for your hand if you’d like to reach back.
One of the most wonderful things about this season is that it is the only time of year when we are collectively encouraged to believe in magic. Flying reindeer, elves in a workshop at the North Pole, a man in a red suit coming down the chimney to leave...
These were the words of my 23 year old stepdaughter at lunch last week: "It's not like it is in the movies!" She was talking about love. She continued, "I thought...you meet someone, you move in together and get a dog and everything would be great. But I did all those...
Hard to believe we're into the seventh month of the year. And what a year it's been! As I've been hearing from many of you as well, this year has been a doozy for me. Health issue after health issue, carefully crafted plans getting demolished, a lot of personal...
