Fathers + Daughters // This past weekend was a total whirlwind, and I loved every second of it πŸ’—. This was my dad’s retirement party weekend, and he had no idea Jonas and I were coming β€” it was a total surprise! I was looking forward to this for a long time!

Saturday night was a casual party with 40 friends and colleagues of my dad, 15 of whom had flown in from around the US to celebrate him. The featured entertainment was a roast of my father, which was hilarious and that he loved. My dad has the best sense of humor, and loves jokes and pranks!

Sunday was a formal sit down dinner hosted by his company for 75 guests, followed by a resolution of recognition passed by the company board at their annual meeting on Monday morning. My dad is beloved and brilliant, and like many uber-smart people his hair can be messy or style of dressing a little << different >>, which he was teased for all weekend. (I wonder where I get it from...) At the annual meeting, when his family was introduced, we all stood up, took off our coats, and showed the puffy/fleece vests we were all wearing! 🀣 My dad is well known for always wearing a vest, and we got claps and laughs!

This weekend was a celebration of my father, and I am so proud of him, of my mother, and of getting the privilege of being their daughter.

My dad is a successful businessman, a risk taker, a deeply compassionate human, a jokester, and a man of integrity and wisdom. He always does the right thing, because its the right thing. He is hard working, loyal, and kind. He genuinely cares.

My dad heard many wonderful speeches this weekend, but he did not hear publicly from me. I have, and continue to, learn about business, leadership, integrity, and work ethics from my dad. He inspires me, and makes me want to be a strong + fair leader with a humble and generous attitude. An organization is successful if it considers the wellbeing of all parties involved, not just those at the top. Or at least, the kind of successful organization I want to create with the Atman Yoga School.

Cheers to you dad, and your impressive career. Who’s to say if it is your β€œresults” or your kindness legacy that will be the most remembered. πŸ’—

Playing Dress-Up // At my parent’s house in Idaho, enjoying a rainy day and hanging with my family.

My mom pulled out this beautiful raw silk dress that she had made on a trip to Thailand when she was 18, and I tried it on.

Playing dress up was one of my favorite games when I was a child (I used to spend my allowance buying vintage party dresses from second hand stores). And it is even more fun when the clothes were my moms! ************************************************** #dressup #vintage #idahome #silk #fashion #dress #nostretchypants

Sacred Ceremony // Yesterday we opened up Module 2 of the 340 Hour Advanced Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with the @atmanyogaschool .

It is always so special to dive deeply into community + studentship with other teachers and students, and to immerse ourselves in the work of radical self-inquiry. To feel supported in spiritual work is one of the greatest gifts of our life.

This 100 hour module focuses on Yoga Philosophy + Ayurveda, and combines practice with knowledge. Mornings are spent practicing asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation and sutra study, and afternoons are lectures, discussion, and exercises.

We have been reviewing the topics of the 8 limbs, gunas, koshas, prana vayus, samkhya philosophy, karma, and ayurveda foundations before we move on and integrate these concepts into other studies.

We started a journal log of urine and saliva pH, and will be examining the dhatus and tongue diagnosis in depth, and learning about the physical characteristics of dosha prakruti.

This week also brings the study of sacred texts, including the Bhagavad Gita, Hatha Yoga Pradipika, and the Upanishads.

Dream recall and interpretation, restorative yoga, and yoga nidra are also part of the program to work with deep relaxation and the sub-conscious mind.

I absolutely love that this is how I get to spend my days β€” with yogis, practicing yoga! ************************************************ @onesacredpause #yoga #yogi #yogateacher #meditation #ayurveda #breathwork #ytt #atmanyogaschool #atmanyogatribe #onesacredpause #sacredpause #yogaeverydamnday #yoganorge #yogainorge #yoganorway #yogapodcast #onesacredpause #sacredpause #yogaioslo

Blog Interview // I was interviewed by the @9to9daily blog on self-care rituals, which is one of my favorite topics to talk about πŸ’—

Learn about my personal philosophies on how/why I prioritize my self-care, and my recommendations for starting a new routine.

Exercise, herbs, ayurvedic practices, and most important to me β€” living from a place that honors my connection to Spirit. I strive to hold compassionate space for myself, as I navigate this journey of being human.

Yoga + Cancer // I am ready to fly to Bergen on Thursday and give a speech at the 2019 Scandinavian Sarcoma Conference on using the alternative therapies of yoga, meditation, and ayurveda during cancer treatment.

I feel so honored to be able to share my personal + professional experiences, and grateful and lit up to be part of this conversation here in Norway.

My talk will focus on three of the (many) alternative healing modalities I used during and after my treatment for Synovial Sarcoma in my wrist: restorative yoga, yoga nidra, and following an ayurvedic lifestyle/routine.

Yoga and meditation are not just counter-culture activities that hippy-dippy tree huggers do.

Yoga and meditation are relevant, cost-effective, and evidence-based solutions to pain management and trauma, and boost immunity, lower cholesterol and stress hormones, calm the nervous system, bring mental clarity + peace, stabilize emotional responses, and aid in sleep and the functions of digestion. Plus so much more!

And learning breathing techniques can trigger the parasympathetic nervous system to combat the fear and uncertainty of cancer treatment, and help alleviate claustrophobia during MRI and CAT scans.

I am video and audio recording my speech, along with my co-presenter @gunnhildcath speech, and will be releasing these as a YouTube video and a special bonus episode of my podcast @onesacredpause .

So please stay tuned if you are interested in hearing our speeches, or want to help support our quest to share yoga, meditation, and ayurveda with the Scandinavian medical community.. *********************************************************

Working Girl // May 1 is a big holiday in Norway, so everything is shut down. I remember when I had my corporate job, and days off from work were highly anticipated and savored.

But as a self-employed entrepreneur, those β€œholiday” days no longer exist for me, haha! I work on workdays, on weekends, at night, and on holidays. Including today :) Of course, I do set my own schedule and get to take time off whenever I want, but my main priority is building my business which means I have to work hard now and stay focused and dedicated. When people see success (in general), they often don’t see the single-focused sacrifices that happen behind the scenes.

In my opinion, small businesses thrive or fail based on three key ideas: hard work (are you REALLY willing to do whatever it takes?), attitude, and innovation.

Even though I am working today, my husband is home, my husky pups are chilling, we have a lunch date with our friends @thedharmaapproach and I have a nice work environment. So all is well.

I have Rose quartz to remind me to do business from my heart and with kindness, and a beautiful @recollectionscandles candle handmade by my friend Evodie/ @9to9daily .

Shout out to Evodie for making candles that are organic, high quality (no black smoke), and smell gorgeous without giving you a headache from synthetic parfums. In Norway we use so many candles, and it has been a struggle to find products that I trust and like (and won’t leave my walls black). Highly recommend!

Cheers to all the boss babes out there working around the clock to chase their dreams! You’ve got this! ************************************************ @atmanyogaschool @onesacredpause #yoga #yogi #yogateacher #yogapodcast #yoganorge #yoganorway #yogainorge #atmanyogatribe #atmanyogaschool #sacredpause #onesacredpause #bossbabe #crystals #recollectionscandles #osloyogis #yogaioslo #trondheimyogis #wellness #ayurveda #breathwork

Shifting // This weekend of breathwork training was beyond my expectations, yet simultaneously exactly what I thought it would be.
.
I showed up with a dedicated vulnerability, to be a student and not a teacher, and to learn something brand new. I set the intention to be a sponge and soak up every vibration while trusting the greater plan of Spirit.
.
I was shaken to my core and had shots of insight like lightning bolts, yet can still feel so many more layers of woolen emotion that need to be shaken loose β€” that need to be dislodged to allow the brilliance of my spirit to shine through unfiltered. I finally gave name to the emotion that has been holding me back, yet couldn’t place. And I was surprised.
.
But what a start. What a beginning. What an awakening. The medicine I didn’t know I needed yet intentionally called in through my subconscious awareness.
.
For a long time, I have been committed to doing the work of my own self-healing so that I can hold compassionate space for others, with grounding and grace. But I have to do the work myself.
.
This particular modality is fairly new to me, but my other tools could only take me so far, as the understanding of my healing shape-shifted and took other forms. But this breathwork format answered my prayers, and is showing me the way forward. It is very different from anything else I do.
.
I feel so inspired, connected, and reawakened. My work in this world is far from over.
.
Deep respect to my beautiful teacher @erintelford__ and to @__michellebaker for holding space. This weekend was so wonderful. Thank you. And I look forward to deepening this work with @davidelliott10 in the future.
.

London Vibes // Today was early, solo, and full on. And I loved it. I love playing tourist, and especially when I don’t feel the pressure of time or obligation.
.
It seems I landed in London on a weekend when there are lots of train/tube closures, yet despite the crazy confusion everywhere, I still made it to Westminster, to Buckingham Palace to see the changing of the guard, got to walk through tons of streets and parks, made it to Soho for a yoga class (and pokΓ©), got to crash the climate change protest of Extinction Rebellion, eat Indian food, and chill.
.
Tomorrow I start breathwork training with @erintelford__ and I can’t wait to shed some layers and drop some {{emotional}} weight. Stay tuned.
.
But London, sweet London. Today the sun was shining, and every person I came into contact with was so nice, friendly, and engaging. It was a perfect day. Reminded me of home. I think I talked more with strangers today than I have in four months in Norway. And every conversation left me with a greater pep in my step and with a more generous smile on my face.
.

It is so simple, yet we make it so difficult. So, this is your daily reminder to be kind to a stranger and smile at someone you don’t know. Happiness is contagious. Spread it everywhere you go.
.
And sometimes it takes going somewhere you have never been before to remind you of something you have always known.
.

Passion // My face when I am teaching yoga. Throwback to Sunday, when I was snapped teaching a Hips + Hearts workshop, and was talking about subtle body anatomy, the layers of the koshas, and connecting to the potent energy centers of the second and fourth chakras.
.
I love teaching so much. I light up when I teach, and I never get bored by the subjects of yoga, radical self-inquiry, meditation, ayurveda, or spirituality.
.
I just want to talk about yoga all day, every day. Oh wait, I do! Hehe πŸ’—
.
Thank you to @theroomskien and @theroomoslo for hosting The Room Weekend at @krageroresort! I had the best time, and will definitely be back next year!
