“Start with small changes and micro moments of self-care. Even 5-10 minutes of movement and meditation has the ability to transform your entire day—not only your mood, but your entire life will evolve, expand and change.”

“I ask myself every single day, ‘How bad do I want to feel good?’ I know I want to feel as good as humanly possible—in my mind and body—because I remember what it feels like to not feel good.”

“Find your why and a practice that feels good to you—one that gets you motivated to show up on your mat every day, [one] that inspires you to create the best version of yourself. Then, commit to doing the work. Consistency is the key ingredient to experiencing lasting results.”
