Wow!! What an incredible week we had. We had a great group of people, most strangers who by the end of our time together were referring to one another as family. Reflecting on the last week, I am beyond grateful for the openness and courage that mainstreamed though our group. What each individual shared was an openness to explore a country they had never been with people they didn't know. Nothing short of a prime example of TRUST. We sweat, explored, and shared experiences and pieces of ourselves. Here are a few highlights!
How following the unknown lead me to endless coconuts and my dream of living at the sea
About a year ago, I decided to leave all the gushy comforts that I knew to venture the great unknown. Indeed it was unknown. New languages, 10 new countries, countless new faces, and oh yeah no shortages or new challenges!! But every single part of it lead me to where I am today. I am sitting here mid afternoon in the place I (basically on a whim) decided to make my new home, A small charming beach town in El Salvador. Honestly, before a year ago, I didn't even know this quaint little country existed. And when I say quaint, I mean it's the second smallest country in Central America.
On a 2 week stop over here back in February, it didn't take long before it captured my heart and my residence.
So here I am, 6 months later settling into my new home and embracing to the best of my ability, all the ways being here is supporting different goals which were once just a dream.
I found a humble home a few minutes walk from the beach and surf break. Learning to surf has become my new past time. It provides such a unique connection to nature, other surfers from around the world, as well as both physical and mental demands.
In a nut shell, life has become simple. It came from giving up parts of myself I thought WERE ME and embracing parts of myself that I never gave mind to. Everyday I realize is about grasping more edges of the unknown. Loving what is. Exactly as it is. Being grateful for the each moment. Reminding myself of what I've come from. What I've been through. And no matter what, as long as I'm breathing, all the potential in the universe is at my fingertips. To this day I raise a coconut and salute the beauty of this incredible journey called life.

I have moved my studio space from my Downtown Denver location to Lakewood. Located near Belmar in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood between Garrison and Waldsworth. There is always plenty or parking. The new location is in a renovated detached garage that has all the elements of Zen to induce quite the healing experience! The same great modalities are still being offered with a few more to be added soon! Including, but not limited to cupping massage and therapeutics, ashiatsu massage, and aerial massage. Stay tuned and/or email me any questions!
With love and abundance,
On April 1st Sukha experienced a lovely day sharing aerial classes with the community. For many, it was their very first time hangin out in an aerial swing. After just a mere 30 minutes, people were finding themselves floating out of class with a yummy expression on their face, space in their bodies, and a balance of playfulness and ease in their spirit. Even though we covered a good amount of what the hammock can do for them, inversions are definitely a fan favorite. And why not!? When you experience the freedom that hanging gives you, its no wonder you leave "yoga stoned". Here are a few shots from the lovely people who came out to join in for some hang time.
