3 Mindfulness Practices for Cultivating More Joy!

3 Mindfulness Practices for Cultivating More Joy!

A lot of our human discomfort arises from a state of disconnection. Our strongest source of disconnect does not live externally. It lives within ourselves.

To be in direct contact with our experience means to be aware and commit to actually FEELING our experience. It is so very simple and also potent beyond measure. It is a commitment to actually be in our experience and FEEL our emotions, discomfort, pain, and grief included. This does not mean we react or are ruled by our emotional experience. It is an internally referenced practice of feeling what arises (like a wave~ surfers!) in our body and staying with that experience. What we chose to do from there is a whole other topic- so stay tuned for a post on dat later!

Have you seen India’s video on 3 simple stretches to try while you are out in the lineup waiting for a set?

They are pretty awesome, a good way to stay active and engaged on a slow day in the ocean and also a great way to challenge your balance on a surfboard and get comfortable shifting your weight!

Plus they are pretty fun :)

Next session try them out! And let us know what you think! XO

MOROCCAN MOON SURF & YOGA WELLNESS RETREAT with Carly Chivers

MOROCCAN MOON SURF & YOGA WELLNESS RETREAT with Carly Chivers

Join us for a week long adventure in magical Morocco as we explore as a community of sisterhood from the desert to the sea. We will travel to the remote southern region of Morocco to experience an authentic seaside fishing village. Stunning remote coastlines dot this region, backed by the Anti Atlas Mountains, with vast stretches of sandy beaches. You will find empty surf line-ups of all types of breaks: point, beach, lefts, rights and for all surf capabilities from newcomer to advanced. As we experience this journey together, we will work on opening our hearts and minds to new adventures, cultures, friends and our inner possibilities.

To Yoke..

The cyclical nature of our existence is unavoidable. The waxing and waning of the moon and its pull on the tides, its pull on the waters in our own bodies (especially as women we are rhythmically connected to this moon cycle). 

On the other side of this cyclical nature is another certain bet, change. Everything changes. Our only constant is depending on the certainty of change. Seasons change and with it weather and ocean patterns across the globe. Plants seed, sprout, flower and decompose, returning to the earth to feed new life.
