When you’re not living life intentionally, it can feel like a struggle, one where you’re constantly swimming upstream. You might ask yourself relentlessly what you should be doing with your life and then feel bad when you can't come up with an answer. You desperately come up with plans of action just to have every door close in your face. You feel like you’re constantly doing, keeping yourself busy with distractions so you don’t have to face the fact that you have no idea what to do.
I found myself in this exact position, I was at a point in my life where I felt completely lost, powerless, stuck, and unhappy. I was unsuccessfully trying to find a job in the field I had gotten my Master's in. Deep down I knew it wasn't the right career for me but I kept trying to force it. I had already dedicated so much time and money into it and I had no idea what else to do with my life, the clear path I had planned made me feel comfortable.
"if the path before you is clear, you're probably on someone else's" - Joseph Campbell
And then one day out of nowhere I felt a peaceful stillness in me that told me to surrender. At that moment I made a pact with the universe that completely changed my life. I said, "Ok Universe, I promise to stop trying to come up with the answers, stop making plans and distractions, and just be instead of do. Show me what you want me to do. I trust that you will take me where I need to go."
I believe that practicing intentional yoga leads to major transformation, discovery of your life's purpose, and becoming so radiantly happy you'll glow from within
What do I mean by intentional yoga? Practicing yoga with deep and meaningful intention, dedicating your practice to something you want to cultivate in your life, and then mindfully taking that intention with you off your mat. When you set an intention for your yoga practice it becomes a lifestyle rather than just an exercise, it’s approaching yoga as a process of self-discovery and transformation. You're able to make a connection between what you work through on your mat and what you continue to focus on after your practice.
Deciding to surrender and let go of control was the most freeing thing I've ever done. Instead of trying to figure it out I followed what interested me and what I was curious about and my path started to organically unfold in front of me. Things started to open up and fall into place and I felt like I was riding with the current instead of struggling against it.
"follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls" - Joseph Campbell
I realized that I was looking for things outside of myself to make me happy and whole when everything I needed was already inside me. I wasn't powerless or stuck, I had an unlimited source of power and energy within me that I could tap into at any time.
"everything amazing about the universe is inside you, and the two are inseparable" - Carl Sagan
Devoting myself to practicing yoga intentionally, meditating, and reading inspirational books led me on the journey to where I am now - living a life of happiness and love where I can follow my passions.
I started this website with the hopes of inspiring and motivating you to live an intentional life by offering deep and meaningful intentions you can bring to your yoga and meditation practice. By offering intentions you can bring into your life I hope to guide you in finding your radiant glow, true happiness and your life purpose. I believe that the reason we're here is to honor and connect with our highest self while we work toward self-discovery, transformation, and personal growth. Everything you'll ever need is already inside you, waiting to be discovered.
