8 Earthquakes in Last 24 Hours

Is this what the end of the world feels like? Possibly. Mother Earth is definitely shaking things up here in Bali. For me personally, I’ve shaken my life up and am transforming a lot, all while going through some wild physical changes like: a volcanic eruption (I did yoga outside and finished class with volcanic…

Mornings on the Farm: Coconut Oil in the Making

Today on the farm, we went cocoNUTS. There’s so much more than pina coladas that you can do with this magical fruit. From freshly fallen coconuts to coconut milk to coconut oil and blondo (an awesome coconut paste for desserts)… Check out the process in this morning video around the chicken farm. I show you…

Cooking School Chronicles, from the Rice Fields of Bali

Lots of destruction to buildings and infrastructure, a heightened sense of instability, and for tourists – early return flights home or to nearby Bali. I have felt nearly a…

Day 25 of Yoga Teacher Training: My Wedding

Today, I got married. I wore a white outfit that was borrowed from my yoga teacher, and a frangipani (plumeria) behind my ear. I was surprisingly nervous. Do I look dressed up enough? I didn’t even bring any makeup or products to Bali. I hadn’t even written my vows. But as the rest of my…
