Everyone knows the infamous sound of a bottle of bubbly popping! The sound of sweet nectar ready to be poured in celebration. Sometimes that celebration is big like a job promotion or a reunion with your girlfriends. Other times the celebration is quite simply that it’s Wednesday and I’ve survived half way through the week.

Chicago is my home. Yoga is my passion. Champagne is my drink of choice. A true introvert yet wanderlust-er at heart. A firm believer in a healthy yet balanced lifestyle. My intention for this blog is to open up my little corner of my world.  Any good yoga instructor must know the importance of what it means to “hold the space” for your students. Meaning, providing gentle guidance in a nonjudgmental and supportive environment. I practice/speak to this nearly every single day on and off my mat.

I think back to all of the amazing people I have met through the different yoga communities since beginning my practice at the young age of seventeen in 2005. The support and love I have received have helped me to blossom into the person I am now, and continue to be, today. Yet, I believe in a balanced lifestyle. Everything from mind, body, spirit to champagne, pizza, and fashion. This is a lens into my world. So let’s raise a glass and toast to a new friendship, a safe space,  and as I always like to say “detox to re-tox”!
