My Perfect Day
I arrived on time (evidence that miracles can happen!) still unsure if I would know anyone besides Michelle (the hostess with the mostest). My heart did a star jump as I noticed a few friends from my yoga teacher training were there! Assaulting them with hugs and squeals it was crazy to think that I probably hadn’t seen them since I graduated 3 years ago.
Body Like A Goddess: Henna & Massage
As if no time had passed, my soul sisters and I caught up as we sipped our mimosas in the sweet Florida sunshine. We continued to chat while heading over to get Henna Tattoos and chair massages.
Tapping Into The Heart Chakra: Yoga & Meditation
Before we knew it Michelle had invited us to our yoga practice. We quickly dropped our names in a few raffle baskets and headed over to unroll our mats. She led a gorgeous flow that emphasized the heart chakra and inner strength. Stephanie, Michelle’s co-hostess seamlessly transitioned us from savasana to a guided meditation. With closed eyes, we wrapped up the meditation with a silent practice. As if she could read my mind, Stephanie had placed journals and pens on each of our mats during this time. Blissed out, I took a few moments to jot down any thoughts that arose for me in that meditation.
We casually transitioned inside for a brunch buffet that pulled out all the stops. With a plate (okay, or two) of bacon, berries and granola galore, I indulged in great conversation with even better people. Goddess by goddess, we each stood up to introduce ourselves to the tribe that we are grateful to be a part of.
