VLOG: Having the Courage to Trust the Universe

Welcome to my October Vlog!

As you know, 2019 has been a wild ride for me and the beginning of my yoga entrepreneurship. I've ridden a lot of ups and downs in the first six months but the one thing that has helped me stay grounded is having the courage to trust the Universe. It's easy to think we can manage everything on our own and that by sheer will and hard work that things can become real, but sometimes letting go of the way things get done is when we open ourselves for real magic to happen. When I feel particularly stuck, I'll ask the Universe out loud for help. Give the video a watch to hear how the Universe has had my back this year.

Thank you for being apart of my journey and reflections!

With deep love,
Paige

Tapping into Your Intuition

Tapping into Your Intuition

In a fast paced life, it’s so easy to turn down the volume of our inner wisdom and begin soliciting external sources. In fact, we almost practice quieting this voice in favor of showing up in a prescribed way that our society and culture has told us is the “right” way to be. How can we cultivate this connection and tap into our inner wisdom?

4 Simple and Straightforward Ways to Boost Your Health

Nowadays, we are more health-conscious than ever, but this comes with its pros and cons. On the one hand, we have all the information we need to make healthier choices. On the other, there is so much information that it’s practically impossible to know what advice to follow. 

When it comes to health, it pays to keep things simple. These four habits are all straightforward enough to implement and can have incredible effects on your head-to-toe well-being. 

Tools for Your Healing Journey

Tools for Your Healing Journey

At some point in life, we have all experienced some type of trauma or hardship. And how we overcome these experiences will vastly vary from person to person. For me, one of my most profound experiences with healing occurred several years back. I remember feeling like I was spiraling out of control; I didn't know up from down, nor did I recognize who I was as a person. My reality had shifted so much that I couldn't even identify my personal value system. In many ways, my healing journey felt like I was starting from scratch as a person.

When Saying 'Yes' Means No

When Saying 'Yes' Means No

One of the biggest learnings I've had during my first couple of months teaching yoga full-time is learning how to say no. When I first stepped into full-time teaching, I told myself I would say yes to everything. I haven't yet read Shonda Rhimes book, Year of Yes, but I was trying to emulate that idea without really understanding the nuance behind it. So stepping into this new role, I decided to say yes to every opportunity that came across my plate.

Do You Breathe?

Do You Breathe?

In the last month I had the opportunity to do some dedicated breath work outside of my usual pranayama, typically offered in yoga classes. The idea of being able to release some really deep seeded emotions while lying down and manipulating the breath. I’ve felt fundamental shifts with the connection to my soul and my life’s purpose.

Heavy Rotation Yoga + Wellness Podcasts

Heavy Rotation Yoga + Wellness Podcasts

My love for podcasts has grown exponentially in the last couple of years—so much so, that my Monday ritual has included going to the gym, hopping on whichever cardio machine I’m feeling that day, and catching up on all the newly released podcasts. Some I listen to purely for fun and curiosity, others to continue my yoga education, and also for business growth and development. Read on for my favorites in heavy rotation!

Movement for Mental Health

Movement for Mental Health

For years during and after college, I worked out to undo all the bad food and (adult) beverage choices I had made. If I overindulged, I would force myself to stay at the gym for hours, slugging away on the dreadmill or stair stepper. I wasn’t interested in lifting weights because I certainly didn’t want to add any bulk to my body. As a result, for years, I dreaded going to the gym to workout. 

It wasn’t until I found yoga that I slowly began to realize that movement in the body can be used for so much more than penance for bad eating habits.

Advice to 22-Year Old Paige

Advice to 22-Year Old Paige

If you could offer one piece of advice to yourself at 22, what would it be?

To begin, let’s set the scene, Paige Earl (my maiden name) was pretty fresh out of university at 22 and living in Portland, OR. She was dirt poor, just entering the full-time workforce, living with her boyfriend, Justin (my now husband!). Paige and Justin would wait up until midnight the day before paydays so they could go to the grocery store and restock the kitchen. Between working opposite shifts for the same company, they spent their free time Netflixing and chilling before it was a thing—DVDs from Netflix being a splurge. Read on to read my advice….

Riding the Wave of Self-doubt

Riding the Wave of Self-doubt

This week has been a challenging one. We have many things balancing as I prepare for a lot of changes on both the #YBP and personal front. To be super vulnerable, I’m afraid that I’m disrupting a career path that could lead to success because I have silly dreams—dreams of being a full-time yoga teacher. My levels of doubt and uncertainty are so incredibly high that my body is reacting with tension and headaches. Read on for more…
