What I’m Into Lately

Hi All! I’m making a conscious effort to blog more. I just wanted to write a simple post on some things I’m into lately! 

Agoya Yoga Tote: The lovely people at Agoya sent me a beautiful purple yoga tote loop.  It’s so minimal and chic and I take it to all of my yoga classes.  Thank you, Agoya!

Getting this tattoo: I love triangles. They are the symbol of change. I am constantly changing. There’s also spiritual meaning in the triangle – mind, body, soul and the trilogy – father, son, holy spirit. It’s also a part of the AA symbol. Although I’m not in AA anymore (I’m still sober), it served as a major transformational time in my life.

Core Power Yoga: I’m a notorious yoga studio hopper. I like to switch things up and I can’t stand when a yoga class is the same routine over and over. I recently found my neighborhood Core Power Yoga in Encinitas.  It is literally right across the street from me. I love it and Cici’s class is my absolute favorite!

Engine 2 Immersion Retreat: I leave for Sedona, AZ in a few days and I am so excited.  My work is sending me there to learn all about plant-strong living and living without using oil, sugar, and salt.  Sounds completely scary, but I want change in my body and my routine. I’ve done the Engine 2 Diet before and loved it and worked really well for me so I’m ready to dig deeper and learn more and be an ambassador for healthy eating in my job. Another post on that when I return!

Quietude

Overheard in 4:45 meditation today at the Chopra Center – QUIETUDE.

I heard it – I loved it – and completely needed to here a meditational catch-phrase that could be used as a Lahotski-ism.

Definition from me~

Quietude: (As in Quiet-Tude – comes from Attitude) the sense of quieting the chatter in our brains, in and out of meditation

Actual Definition:

quietude [ˈkwaɪəˌtjuːd]

n

the state or condition of being quiet, peaceful, calm, or tranquil
Feel free to use that in a sentence today.  It’s already added to my lingo!
And hooray! I just received my new workout gear from Ellie.com! Can’t wait to share with you guys – pretty hot stuff!

Wellness Wednesdays

For the first edition of Wellness Wednesdays….DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY. 

ImageThis week, I’m dedicated to my schedule of doing my “wellness” activities. I’m a virgo, so planning and having a schedule is KEY for me. Sundays/Mondays – take a walk, Tuesdays – meditate at the Chopra Center for their 4:45 class, Wednesdays – spin class with the kick-your-ass-party-til-you-puke spin instructor, James @ LA Fitness – Thursdays – kundalini at Soul of Yoga. 

Yep – my schedule is insane and very planned out – but I LOVE throwing little things into my routine like, making something I find on Pinterest, jamming out to the song of the summer [Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke] really loud in my car to and from work, and burning incense while straightening up my house. 

I’m going to go into detail with all of these lovely things and more – so stay tuned!
