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

Portland, Oregon Reboot

Portland, Oregon Reboot

What an incredible walk down memory lane spending the weekend in Portland! We brought our walking shoes (when we lived here we both sold our cars) and got ready to reacquaint ourselves with the Rose City. Every day we’ve wandered what feels like all of Portland, checking out the new development and eating and drinking our way through each neighborhood. In summary, Portland is still as weird as ever—if not more than before. The food industry continues to thrive. We encountered twice as many beer bars as before which is hard to imagine, but true.

VLOG: Annual Reflections + Birthday

VLOG: Annual Reflections + Birthday

I’m bringing back the VLOG this week, sharing some of my annual reflections. I always feel like my birthday is the perfect time to look back upon the past year, to review goals set out to be accomplished, log in all the learnings and think about the upcoming year. Thank you for being here and helping to create such a wonderful year. I’m filled to the brim with gratitude that this is the life I get to live.

Goals: How to Stick With Them

Goals: How to Stick With Them

Goals. Some goals are long-term some goals or short-term; some goals are goals that we're not even sure why they might be goals. But the fact of the matter is that goals present themselves everywhere, regardless of your industry or lifestyle, you are usually working toward something. So, how can we more effectively work toward our goals?

What does YogaPlay mean?

What does YogaPlay mean?

If you’ve been around for awhile you may be wondering about the meaning behind YogaPlay. After nearly a decade of teaching yoga, I’ve found that most of my learning has come from a genuine curiosity in the body’s abilities. There was a time when I took my practice so-very-seriously and tried to walk the narrow path of what I thought a yogi should be and do. But somewhere along the line, I decided to throw out the rule book and walk my own path and do my very best to enjoy every minute of it.

YogaPlay was born out of a relentless desire to challenge my body within the realm of yoga and this long honored practice.

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.

Travel Series: Family Vacay in Sunriver, Oregon

Travel Series: Family Vacay in Sunriver, Oregon

A couple weekends ago, my husband, Justin, and I took a trip up to Sunriver, Oregon. Annually, his family gets together for a week with limited plans to unwind from the busyness of our daily lives and spend quality time together: making delicious meals at home, enjoying fierce competitions of table tennis, sardines (a must!), and a plethora of outdoor activities. We pack in the whole family: in total, we are usually twelve piled into a giant house which makes for great fun!
