When there's a big disappointment we don't know if that's the end of the story.
It may be just the beginning of a great adventure.

Last May I embarked on the trip of a lifetime to Bali, spending one of my weeks there on a yoga retreat led by musician Michael Franti and yoga teacher Seane Corn. It was a last minute decision but considering it was my favorite musician + favorite yoga teacher + favorite country = no brainer! 
Plus, I really needed to feel reinvigorated and my time at Michael's retreat center, Soulshine, did just the trick.
Listen to my brief interview with Michael to hear his tips for preventing burn-out. (His last suggestion certainly rings true for me!) And even better -- meet Michael for yourself at a yoga class I'm coordinating this Friday August 18th when he comes to town! Your donation will go to his "Do It For the Love" Foundation, providing live music experiences to those going through challenging times. With everything going on politically these days, we can all stand to do it for the love, living from our hearts as much as possible.
