Santosha | How Contentment Can Radically Change Our Lives

Santosha | How Contentment Can Radically Change Our Lives

Welcome back to the yamas and niyamas series after a little break. We're moving right along, and this week Santosha is up. Santosha means contentment in Sanskrit and asks us to take refuge within a calm center. 

In order to practice contentment, we have to move towards opening our heart to gratitude for what we have in this current moment. We are asked to be thankful and practice not seeking.

But, I Don't Speak Icelandic! Letting Go of Fear

But, I Don't Speak Icelandic! Letting Go of Fear

Hello from Reykjavik!

If you have not been following along on Instagram or know me personally, I recently packed up my life in Boston and moved it over 2,000 miles to Reykjavik, Iceland. Surprise! You might be asking yourself, "Why?" to which I would respond, "Why not?" But, I can go into more details in a later conversation, as I'd like to share an experience I had shortly after moving here with you all.

During our move, which lasted for about a month between packing everything up in Boston, transporting it all to Indiana to store with my parents, fly to Reykjavik, and get settled in our new home, I didn't really have the chance to practice much yoga.
