Malas & Mindfulness

“What is a mala and how do I use it?”

Malas are traditionally used for repeating mantras in meditation, symbolizing a spiritual connection. They have been used for thousands of years in various ways across cultures. The common thread is their symbolism of living intentionally and inspiring connection with Divine Spirit, whether you like to call that God, the Universe or something else… it’s that recognition that we are simply part of a larger web of life, that we are all connected, and that there is an energy greater than ourselves holding it all together… an energy we can trust for guidance.

I started making jewelry when I was a young girl, following in my mother’s footsteps.

I loved the creativity involved, and working with my hands. I’ve always loved the self-expression involved in getting dressed everyday, which includes clothing and accessories. When I fell in love with yoga – and soon after, teaching yoga – my love for jewelry making came back into my life… in the form of mala beads. It’s a beautiful mindfulness practice for me… something that requires my full attention. Every mala I create is infused with my love and passion for yoga, art, healing, and spirituality.

Yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and mala beads all have one thing in common – living with intention.

All of these things involve the desire to raise our awareness in order to live our happiest lives and be the highest, best version of ourselves possible everyday.

You can use your mala in meditation, or just wear it daily as a symbol of your current intentions in life. I only use organic materials and semi-precious stones. All of my designs are 100% original and every mala is slightly different, making them all one-of-a-kind.

When choosing a mala, I suggest allowing your intuition to guide you – which one are you drawn to?

Start there, and then research the stones to see what they symbolize. Often you will resonate with what you learn about the stones after choosing the mala…

With spring approaching quick, the energy in the air is fresh… it’s all about renewal, welcoming change, cleansing out the old, and inviting in a bright, new perspective.

4 Ways to Love Yo’ Self on Valentine’s Day

Nothing like the perfect self love recipe on Valentine’s Day!

So, here it is. I promise if you do these four things you will woo yourself silly into having the sweetest day of all… Whether you have a sweetie or not, it’s always best to put yourself first!

*BONUS if you do all these things in a row… one after the other. It will only take you 30 minutes!


ONE SONG (or more if you want) – put on your favorite song and just DANCE! Dancing is the perfect way to get energy moving in your body and connect to your feelings. Valentine’s Day is all about LOVE, so practice loving your body by moving it in a way that feels good. Sway your hips, shake all around and release anything that is not serving you today.


Roll out your mat for TEN MINUTES. Connect to your life-giving breath. Don’t worry about what poses show up. Have the courage to let them arise. If it’s Child’s Pose for ten minutes, then so be it. Let your body move however it wants to. There are no rules here! LOVE your own creativity that arises! Let the yoga energize your body and calm your mind.


Set the timer for anywhere from 3-10 minutes (or longer if you’re a seasoned meditator). Sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus on breath and body sensation. I’ve got some guided meditations here for you to choose from!

It is scientifically proven that mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation change the structure of our brain over time in a way that brings greater balance to our nervous system and overall health.


Again, set the timer for just five or ten minutes and write whatever comes to mind. They are just words on a page so don’t give them much meaning. Think of it more like an energetic dump to clean your slate for the day.

ABOVE ALL, ENJOY THIS RELEASE OF BODY, MIND & SPIRIT! Take care of you today and love every second of it (and don’t forget to buy yourself some chocolates)!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
