Gratitude + Detox Yoga Flow

You know it’s coming and you try to be prepared – plan ahead, save money, not stress. Yet, somehow the last six weeks of every year have us feeling too busy and bloated to enjoy all of the bliss. In the midst of gatherings, gift giving and gluttony, our bodies take on stressors we’re not used to and it makes us feel mentally and physically unhinged.   This doesn’t mean the holiday season is completely toxic or shouldn’t be celebrated. It’s just a matter of choosing to slow down and stay present. Even too much of a good thing can [...]

How you end is how you begin 

  It’s hard to believe the year is almost over. Where does the time go? Before we know it, we’ll be shouting the countdown to a New Year. January 1 marks the beginning of the year while millions of people rush to begin again by setting resolutions that soon dissipate into thin air.   I’ve got a new plan for you.   Life is cyclical – the seasons are proof of this. So instead of hard starts and stops, let’s ever evolve into the beings we’re meant to be. If you want to see change, you must do the change [...]

How to bring your chakras into harmony

by Belinda Pearl What does it mean to be in this body and in this life? Do you remember the true causal reason for being incarnated? There are many questions to contemplate when we think about life, and the many wondrous mechanisms that bring us to our fullness. And, possibly there are many, many more reasons and questions that will surface when contemplating the very reason we came to this Earth. The gist of the matter is that we are Spiritual Beings having a human experience. In order to remember the part that reminds us that we are "spiritual [...]

10 Ways to Get Unstuck

  Ever notice that some days you just feel a bit off? Maybe it’s the weather, work/home/relationship stress, a full moon or just because. We recognize the day is drab because the others surrounding it don’t feel this way – they feel, well, brighter. You may feel compelled to push the feeling aside or reside in its ugliness. I urge you to welcome the unsettledness of these far-and-few-between days. To me, these days can be a gift – making me grateful for the abundance of good days I do have. I don’t try to overcorrect the feeling or dwell either. [...]

Lessons learned from off the mat and into the jungle

Returning from a yoga retreat is both wonderful and dreadful. I’m eager to take all of the reflective thoughts and regained energy from the retreat and infuse it into daily life. On the other hand, leaving paradise is never easy – it’s back to routine.   White Peacock Yoga hosts an annual yoga retreat to Costa Rica. We’ve been doing it for years because we love the Pura Vida way and the rich jungle ceases to amaze us. It’s hard not to reflect on the time away. In fact, it’s a must. Every journey deserves recognition. So what did I [...]
