epicself If you want to be a lion you must train with lions. Spend time with the spirits you aspire to be. Observe, soak in everything, and take copious physical or mental notes. Then act, do and be more of yourself. Let them rub off on you in the best way possible. Everyone you've ever met has effected your thoughts and behaviors. So put yourself around those that only inspire and motivate you to be your most authentic epic self. No fears, no regrets EVER. In every dark cloud is a silver lining. Keep dreaming, envisioning and doing. Burn brighter. Allow others to help you build your dream. You can't go at it alone. It's WAY more fun with friends 54min

epicself ️Reach out, unite, empower and share. Mermaid yogi synergy! I had the ultimate pleasure of meeting the stunning @horizonlightphotography and radiant @zengirlmandy while passing through San Diego last weekend. @horizonlightphotography and I had a chance to shoot together on this gorgeous Sunday.
If you don't know these two powerful mermaid yogi goddess's yet you absolute need to check out their collaborative work and individual passions on IG. I sweat and smiled my way through one of @zengirlmandy's classes at @birdrockyoga in Pacific Beach and then we pow wowed over at @trilogysanctuary for a #plantpowered lunch. Talk about inspiring! These gals are so passionate, driven, super creative and supportive.
Let's just say we have some super fun ideas brewing and look forward to making some #mermaidyogi magic here in Costa Rica very soon

epicself Home sweet home. No matter how far I travel the ocean will always be home. Tropical salt water soothes my soul like nothing else I was welcomed home into the loving arms of my closest friends last night and am spending #Christmaseve moving into my new larger house in Manuel Antonio. New year, new space! I love moving house, clearing the clutter, and designing a comfy cute space. This new home is large enough to house many friends, family, and work exchange students. Perfect for high season and all of the retreats and teacher trainings coming up in 2015. I'm beyond STOKED

What are you up to on this merry day?!

epicself Do you want to perform better mentally and physically? Recover faster? Endure longer? And stabilize your energy all day? Then simply eat more organic plants and seaweeds. This Raw Coconut Wrap stuffed with veggies from @trilogysanctuary is a perfect example of how easy it is to make delicious plant based cuisine for you and your family. Food doesn't need to be complicated or expensive to be scrumptious. The beauty of plants is that you can eat an abundance of them without worrying about calories. Plant foods fill you up with fiber, water, and easy to absorb nutrients that are neutral or alkaline in pH. Unlike animal foods, plants and especially algae are the first source of sun energy we can absorb through eating. Fill up on them first and crowd out the meat and processed foods on your plate. I doubt you'll even be hungry for the rest after eating your greens and veggies.
It's critical that we all learn how to make and cultivate our own healthy delicious food. No one is going to do it for us. We are responsible for our bodies and the impact on the environment. These are just a few of the reasons I've been raw vegan for 6 years and continue to teach and incorporate raw vegan cuisine in all of my retreats and teacher training programs. To learn the life skills necessary to sustain your most epic lifestyle and pass it on to others!

What was the biggest shift you felt transitioning to a plant based diet? For me it was the energy and mental clarity. I was flying out of the dance floor with super human ease. Once you feel that awesome it's super difficult to go back to sub par living. The trouble is most people don't give themselves enough of a trial period when transitioning. Try for a week at least and let me know how you do

epicself It's about to go down! Mega Acai bowl topped with banana, berries, shredded coconut, hemp seeds and walnuts. Antioxidant and omega power! This baby fueled me all morning. I would doctor it up with some Maca, a few scoops of Vitamineral Green by @Healthforce Nutritionals and crumble up a @rickaroons on top. You could always add a drizzle of @jemraworganics too. OMG foodgasm How do you take your breakfast to the super human level? What superfoods do you use most? I personally couldn't live without Vitamineral Green, chaga, Maca, and ashwaganda. Kava root has also been in my repertoire lately. There are a lot of kava bars popping up!
Thanks @wellnessgangster and @wellgroomedhippie for introducing me to this sweet little spot.

epicself You can discover more about a person in an hour of play then in a year of conversation - Plato
Hang time in the garden amidst the happy bees and trees with @andrew7sealy.
We hiked to the @rancholapuerta organic garden for a divine farm to table breakfast a few times last week. I adore the head chef and master farmer who tend to the soil. They literally describe their work as nurturing the soil. Once the soil ecosystem is optimal the growing and cooking is effortless. The plants taste so good you don't need to cover them in sauces and cheese or cook them to death We couldn't help but romp around the garden with a belly full of vibrant plants.
Tag someone you want to play with soon!

epicself Can't wait to sink my toes into this crystal sand and swim in the warm waves for hours. Today is my last in San Diego before flying back home to Manuel Antonio tonight! Last minute friend visits, business meetings, and errand running fill my hours. It's pretty insane this time of year in the states. So much stress and consumption of things when all people really want and need is to feel something. To experience happiness, peace and love with their family and friends.
I'm definitely feeling the love and so grateful for the time over the last month with incredible souls. You know who you are and I will miss your presence terribly.
Who do you miss most during the holidays?

epicself Double thrown acro play on the most perfect Saturday. A little birdie told us about a fantastic one stop shop for yoga, and raw vegan eats in La Jolla. We floated over to the new @trilogysanctuary and spent the entire afternoon chilling at their gorgeous roof top studio and cafe. Leila, the owner, joined us for some acro under her hand painted mandala. Isn't it stunning?! @trilogysanctuary is my new haven in San Diego! Where else can you hang and play in yoga swings with your best friends, nosh incredible plant based cuisine, and mingle with other like minded conscious people in an elegant and fresh atmosphere? What a gem !! @andrew7sealy makes basing this posture look effortless as usual Have your tried thrown before? 4d

epicself Sync and smile. It's Friday! I spent my last day at @rancholapuerta running around, climbing mountains, eating at the organic garden, and playing like jungle kids with @andrew7sealy all over campus. I've practiced #AcroYoga off and on for a few years with various partners at yoga festivals and conferences, but flowing, laughing, learning and just being with @andrew7sealy is ridiculous fun. I'm beyond elated he's flying down to the true jungle and joining me and the #CostaRica tribe at @envisionfestival end of February 2015.
Are you going to be there?! Perhaps you'll catch us flying and most definitely dancing.

epicself Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. Just say yes. Imprint your intention and then watch it manifest. I've learned over years of globe trotting just to say yes and buy the ticket. If I don't I will never make it happen. Someday will always be someday. Buying a flight is SO exhilarating. It lights a fire under my butt to make it happen no matter what. I'll buy six months out, two weeks before and sometimes the day of. Just because why not?! I couldn't be more excited to fly home to this pristine rainforest. Costa Rica's perfect endless Summer and my tribe is calling. High season in the tropics is upon us! Let the magic flow.
Take a dip in waterfalls and 80 degree aquamarine waves by joining me and @katemagic for our January 18th Raw Chef Certification and pilates + yoga all inclusive retreat we have ONLY two spots left.
Are you ready to jump into epic living and fully immerse in a new exciting way of being? Experience is priceless. You can't feel the energy of a place reading books or liking pictures. Step into the wild. Feel your highest potential.

epicself I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. The journey. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.
We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down. Trust and have faith in yourself, others and the universe. The net will always appear Taking flight in my new tights by @werkshop with the fantastic @andrew7sealy at @rancholapuerta.
