Do you have a penchant for attracting certain situations or people when you travel? Travel can bring unusual patterns, synchronicity and personal discoveries. The fact we’re often far from home, just makes them more prominent. For instance, I’m a film set magnet. In the U.S., I have a knack for stumbling upon film sets… frequently [...]
With India, you don’t always know what to expect.
It’s like the way Los Angeles used to be in the 80′s and 90′s before L.A. Country took to white-washing it to erase signs of poverty. I’d drive down the street and each block would change from ghetto to posh and back to ghetto again, like Christmas twinkle lights!
You might think that taking a cooking class is something at the top of every solo female traveler’s list of things to do.

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of public transportation, when I travel. Buses particularly. Until now, the notion of traveling in India by public bus used to intimidate me. Every time I’d see a bus parked at a stop, it looked like a rudimentary tin cans on wheels, packed tight and spilling over with people.
Yoga can impact people’s’ lives in a powerful way: awakening meaningful connections with our bodies, uplifting spirits, increasing flexibility, strength and health, releasing stress, offering insights and a new outlook on life… As a result, it’s only natural that some yogis feel inspired to teach this goodness.

Almost a year ago, I’d traveled to India. It was my second visit, but my first time exploring it through yoga.
At the time, I wrote some light posts from a travel perspective, giving readers a brief peek into what it was like staying at a yoga ashram and getting my yoga teacher’s certification at a school there.
Have you ever been to the southernmost tip of India? I have.
It’s where Gandhi’s ashes were released. It’s where the Indian Sea, Bay of Bengal and Arabian Sea swap tides. It’s got a huge statue of a famous poet.
