| Temples
.
"The rich will make temples for Shiva. What shall I, a poor man, do? My legs are pillars, the body the shrine, the head the cupola of gold." - Basava
.
There are six, yes six, spa temples here at @mukulresort, and each is a very different and sacred experience. It's no wonder Mukul's spa earned a spot on the top of the list of best spas in the world.
.
I'm experiencing the spas today while on retreat with @marytilson and @barefootluxuryretreats. Want to see inside of each one? Follow along on my Story here. Interested in learning more about this secret spot in Nicaragua? The link is in my bio.
.
This temple, The Healing Temple, is where you can have the "Yamuna Experience" for a short time while Yamuna is here. I'll be telling you more soon about my sacred healing session with this incredible healer.
.
Tell me what your very favorite spa treatment is.

| Magic
.
If you think things happen by accident, you are foolish. Chance encounters, serendipitous meetings, beautiful experiences, love, devotion, practice, life...it is all part of a bigger plan. No matter your belief, believe in magic. Expect it. And when it happens, bow down to it with all that you have and give thanks.
.
I don't have the words to describe the magic I felt with @marytilson on this yoga platform this morning, all I know in my heart and with my whole soul...is that I am supposed to be right here, right now.
.
To You, I bow deeply with all of the gratitude I have. I am forever grateful for this path, and the beautiful mirrors, teachers, and souls I meet along the way.
.
Thank you Mary, I love you.

| Perfection
.
Last night's sunset at @mukulresort in Nicaragua is in my memory forever. The temperature here is perfect, the breeze is tropical and perfect, the air is light with just enough moisture to be perfect, the waves are the most perfect I've ever seen, the sound of the ocean from my bed is perfect, the colors...all of the incredible colors here, are perfect.
.
When you find yourself in a place of perfect, it's so easy to let go.
.
I'm here on retreat this weekend with @marytilson and her @barefootluxuryretreats. She is here at Mukul this month and next, guest teaching.
.
I'll be practicing daily yoga with Mary and experiencing the SIX spa temples here, I'm taking you along on my Story today and tomorrow. Turn the Post Notifications on so you don't miss out!
.
Wanna book your very own stay here, or retreat with Mary too? Peep the link in my bio!
.
Happy Weekend, loves! XO

Wow, Nicaragua, wow! I arrived by prop plane this morning and checked in to my ocean view villa at @mukulresort and I'm never leaving! I'm serious. Bohio 9 is taken...until further notice.

| Next Stop: Nicaragua
.
This morning I'm saying so long to beautiful Costa Rica, what an incredible jungle adventure it has been the last three weeks!
.
Today, a new stamp on my passport and a new country I've never visited before: Nicaragua!
.
Quickly gaining popularity in the travel world, Nica is the place to see in 2017, and I am squealing about the THREE incredible properties I have on my list for this trip (tap the photo for a sneak peek).
.
I've carefully curated this trip, and hand-picked three thoughtful, socially responsible and eco-friendly stays. I'll be sharing every detail with you right here!
.
Have you visited Nicaragua? Tell me what I shouldn't miss. Is Nicaragua on your list to visit?

| The Hell Yes Life
.
Sure this is a carefully crafted and edited image, but I assure you the story is real.
.
In less than a month I will celebrate my 46th birthday, and it has taken me exactly this long to figure it out, The Hell Yes Life.
.
These days I find myself in the dreams I have manifested, and I look around and smile. (Sometimes I even cry.)
.
I know all of the reasons why most people think this cannot be them, and I hear from some of you every day about how I'm inspiring you. I'm listening, more still than ever before, and I'm showing you with this one life I have to live, that this CAN be you.
.
It's time I showed you HOW, and it's time for you to join me in REAL LIFE on an adventure just like this...only it will be YOUR Hell Yes life!
.
Are you ready? I am!

| Dream
.
"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it." - Alice Walker
.
There was no chance of not noticing any of this incredible beauty last night - SWOON.
.
I think it must also sadden the Divine if we aren't dreaming, if we aren't listening to our hearts, if we aren't living a happy life, if we are moving too fast and not sitting still a little bit, if we aren't loving each other... We are here to be happy, period. And the magic of whatever you believe sends us reminders every single day...just like this, so we don't forget.
.
I love you, each of you who stops here to see what I post and to read my thoughts. Thank you.
.
It's my last day at @elmangroovehotel, tomorrow I make my way to Nicaragua! I'll be spending four days with an incredible yogini in her paradise on retreat there. Any guesses who I'll be seeing or where I'll be staying? Watch my Story today for hints!

It really did look just like this! Today I treated myself to a luxury I don't do often enough, I had a massage. Not just an ordinary massage, a "Bliss" Massage, on a bamboo platform, in the Costa Rican jungle by the hands of one of @elmangroovehotel's finest. The breeze was perfect and the touch was medicine.
.
If you could gift one person in your life this experience, who would it be and why?

| The Big Chill
.
Okay, I admit, the very first thing I did was strip off all of my clothes and jump into a luxuriously long hot shower...and then I jumped on my @thehellyesagency branding call which I have every Tuesday...but now, now I promise to chill.
.
Me in my natural habitat, happily checked in to @elmangroovehotel for the rest of the week and washing the jungle off a bit.
.
The website for El Mangroove says chilling is mandatory...and that is exactly what I plan to do!
.
On the menu for my time here: a Bliss Massage, some SUP (can you believe I've never been on a SUP before?), breakfast in bed and lots of catch up reading and writing. (Catch the action on @thefittraveller, I'm doing a takeover this week and sharing everything there too.)
.
From my big chill to yours this week! XO

| The Hell Yes Life
.
Yesterday I visited this beach at noon when the tide was lowest, with my sister and her family. We swam in the most beautiful tide pool with turquoise colored water and a perfect temperature. While I was swimming I looked out into the ocean, I was level with the coast, and could see to the horizon - it was Mother Nature's infinity pool.
.
This is a Hell Yes life, this. And I'm so grateful.
