Our retreats and experiences are life-changing events. Big statement. Right? Kind of gutsy to put that out there but it's true. It's true because I transform as well.
Every. Single. Time.
No picture, promo, article, or testimonial can convey what happens for real at one of the collectives. Not even your best, most trusted confidant, grabbing you by the shoulders, shaking you with "OMG!! You HAVE TO DO THIS!!". Nope.
It takes something else. You have to trust your inner voice, step off and leap IN to get what goes on. The propel you to the best places and connect you in ways you can't believe.
The Accidental Tourist.
Yoga found me as a young mother just past twenty in Southern California. What started as a personal tool for physical wellness quickly evolved to a personal tool for spiritual growth. I had no intention to teach yoga and this is where the Accidental Tourist comes into the story. More than that, I didn't want to. My practice felt so very mine and teaching was so, well, not. But I yielded to Divine forces because they're exactly that, Divine. So I tripped and stumbled a bit those early years of travel. I "visited" several methods, learned the language and terrain of the different lands, and discovered that with time, they all led home. All played an important role in my teaching maturation and all challenged me to be true, raise the bar, and be more radically myself. I built an altar to my heart and kept a steady fire burning for my purpose and commitment. A commitment that runs far and deep and pools at the feet of all Women. This is IT.
This is Inspired Shakti.
