← First off, I have to tell you about the Green Smoothie I made this morning! I finally received all of my personal belongings from our cross-country move, and one of those items that I was thrilled to unpack was my VITAMIX!!! It has been a long 2 months of me living without my precious blender. Once you get used to drinking Green Smoothies 4-7 days a week, it is not the same without it. So, let me share with you my creative blend of the day:

Aloha! Today I had the pleasure of practicing yoga on the beach! It was a great way to hit my "reset" button, so to speak. There is something about breathing in the fresh sea air, feeling the sea breeze against your skin, and wiping sand off of your body that just brings you back down to Earth. We all get in a routine in some form or another in life, whether it is with your yoga practice, eating habits or daily exercise. Isn't it nice to change things up once in a while? If you haven't tried yoga on the beach, it is actually quite fun and challenging! I feel like MOST physical exercises like yoga, volleyball, running, riding a bicycle, gymnastics, and even walking can be more of a challenge on the beach!
So, I decided to write this blog post about yoga on the beach and offer a few helpful tips for the varying elements you might experience on the beach. Personally, I have only practiced yoga on the beach about 6 or 7 times, which doesn't seem like a lot, but during those adventures at the beach I was able to pick up on a few helpful tips.
What an exciting weekend!! This past weekend was the first time we actually took the time to travel the island. We started off by heading towards Waikiki on Saturday to meet up with my husband's ol' high school buddy. He was very kind and welcomed us to that side of the island by taking us on a mini-tour of Waikiki Beach Walk. We stopped and ate some amazing sushi, then we finished up our visit by paddle boarding at Waikiki Beach. I have never gone paddle boarding before and it was a BLAST! The most exciting part for me was seeing several sea turtles swim near me. They were very large sea turtles and had such a majestic presence in the water. (Continue Reading)
We are headed for Honolulu today. We haven't spent much time on that side of the island, so it should be interesting. I keep hearing about Waikiki, so hopefully we can stumble over there today. Looking forward to the great weather this weekend! I hope that you have a great weekend. Maybe you have your weekend stacked full of chores, maybe you have your weekend planned for fun, but whatever plans you do have remember to enjoy yourself and love those surrounding you!
Aloha!!! I have moved to the lovely state of Hawaii and I could not be happier!! It has been a very challenging transition getting everything organized and moved, but it is so worth the hassle!! We should be moving into an apartment in the next couple of weeks. I have been thinking about my new life here on the island and what I want to be doing with myself.
Yoga is a given here on the island. There are so many studios around here and so many wonderfully inspiring places to practice my yoga. I also want to continue teaching in the local setting and I hope to apply for teaching positions at the local studios in the next couple of months. More currently... (Continued)
