Move your body and calm your mind in this seasonal “Mind Body Move” 90 minute workshop. The first half of the workshop is filled with a grounding meditation followed by 30 minutes of full body movements to get your heart pumping. The second portion brings your body into restful bliss through restorative yoga and guided sound meditation with @kristinaraeclemons. We will also be sharing tips for grounding and recharging your body/energy anytime you need to. I love how Kristina describes this workshop and the transition into this new season, “Fall means change-in the earth and in ourselves. Some of it is welcome, some of it is not...either way, it is easy to feel as if life is tumbling around us- the axis is lost. But wait...there is a power in coming together at these seasonal shifts, power in sitting together to say either: this is hard and/or this is beautiful. Trust me”! I’m am so thrilled to be a part of this coming together. Join us for this special mind body experience Saturday 9/28 at 12:30-2pm.

I use Palo Santo to fill up my space with positive energy, clear any negative vibes and spark creativity. ✨. Palo Santo means “holy wood” in Spanish and comes from the Palo Santo trees in South America. This wood is considered sacred and has been used for centuries in spiritual, religious, and medicinal ways. The smoke from Palo Santo can also be used to clear crystals. How to use: Just light the stick, allow it to burn for 15-20 seconds, then blow the fire out carefully, while keeping the smoke going. I just slowly walk around the space I want to clear with the smoke and then place the Palo Santo in a fireproof dish to stop burning ( make sure to check that it has completely stopped smoking within a few minutes and that it is out). I often say a mantra to myself while walking around to set an intention for what I specifically want to do or accomplish. Just the act of lighting the Palo Santo helps immediately get me into a more focused and relaxed state. And- it smells so good too. #mantra #monday.

Yes 💯! Especially in those moments when you feel your body get triggered or stressed by something and you feel your chest tighten and you feel yourself stop breathing ...pause...big inhale...big exhale ...but send your exhale breath through your feet (with your imagination/focus) to help instantly counter that “holding” of the breath and calm the whole body 🙏 #breathe #magic.

Movers and shakers, I am coming for you! I stole that from a sign at the airport. 😂 This totally made me think of my barre classes that I CANNOT WAIT to get back to! My first class back is tomorrow at 9:15am @asanacharlestown! I am also teaching Friday at 9:15am. I have some new moves and of course some new music I Shazamed (is that a word?) along the way during my travels. Also- my next Mind Body Move workshop is coming up on Saturday 9/28. I am thrilled to be teaming up with the wonderful @kristinaraeclemons. This workshop combines a full body workout, followed by sound meditation. More details and sign up on www.asanacharlestown.com. I am excited to be back! #moveWithMe #barre #bostonbarre #move #boston #asanacharlestown.

The good news is that the journey never ends, whether you are traveling or not ♥️. Au Revoir and Arrivederci to a special special summer adventuring with my family. I will treasure this summer forever.
I am sad to say goodbye to this trip ...yes.... but I also feel so beyond lucky to have experienced it at all. All the new sights and places we got to explore 🙏 Except for some of the very ancient looking bridges & tunnels we drove through and over. I could have done without those 😳 Especially this one rickety old bridge in Cap Corse, Corsica! It was probably 1000ft up on a cliff with a sign that said in French “under construction, only one car on the bridge at a time. Do not drive over 5 mph”. There was no way off and no way to turn around. This was a moment I was very thankful Charles speaks fluent French and we didn’t follow the big truck ahead of us on to the bridge 😂.
I am so in awe of how brave my kids were at trying new things and new and surprisingly healthy foods (not like Chase at all) and diving into the middle of the ocean to snorkel around (not like Chloe at all). Don’t get me wrong, there were still plenty of pizzas, gelatos, Italian pastries and crepes too (there may even have been a day Chase had pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner 😂), but overall I was so impressed by them.
And- thank you so much for all of the messages I got from all of you with recommendations along the way of places we should try out. It made the trip so fun and gave us some awesome little detours 🙏😘. #tbt to our 13th wedding anniversary 🙏. #lucky13 #italy #france #positano #capri #amalfi #tripofalifetime #familytravel #familyadventure #memories #journey #explore
Woohoo 🐠 Soaking up every last minute of summer. Exploring the Calanques of Marseille was so cool. The kids sure loved snorkeling in little coves and swimming into the caves. They even saw a moray eel 😳. #calanques #adventure #marseille #france #familytravel.

Even in the rain you still shine bright ✨🌈✨Thankful for
every day in this special place with friends and family- especially this magic moment.
My sister-in-law @denisemichelleski had a “feeling” there was going to be a rainbow outside and opened the door to the street and Voila... right outside this magnificent and perfectly placed rainbow was shining right over us🙏. Chloe and I had been trying to figure out for days what our annual “fit-fun” @zumescoffee Instagram post would be this year and then this happened....in an instant🧘🏻♀️. #magicmoments #rainbows #provence #france #natureswonders #weekend #saturday #vibes

My little guy checking out the sunset at the top of the historic Citadelle de Calvi. The oldest part of this fortress was built in 1278. It is so fascinating to explore a city so old but still in full swing. We had dinner up near the orange umbrellas and the citadel is full of cafes, shops and people that still live there. Just so full of original beauty. Surrounding the #citadel is the most stunning beach. Such an amazing and special place to visit 🇫🇷 #france #corsica #calvi #corse #french #travel #original #beauty
