I just got back from 2 months in Costa Rica, teaching and doing Yoga, and I have to say that traveling is one of the most fulfilling things that I get to do in my life!

I love experiencing a variety of cultures, landscapes, and historical locations; it leaves me inspired and rejuvenated. In 2008, I founded my business with the premise that traveling had to be a part of it in some whay or another, so being able to travel offering unforgetable experiences for others is really a dream come true.

Life is about expanding our knowledge and understanding of ourselves. When we travel we gain the ability to experience unique adventures that fulfill this human sense of wonder and curiosity about life. As we explore new places, activities, and challenges we open ourselves up to new experiences even as we return to our mundane life.

An aspect of traveling that I really appreciate is being exposed to cultures, foods, and ways of living, which often make me more empathic and compassionate to the lives and realities of others. Being privy to how other parts of the world operate has served to give me a new perspective about the conditions of my own life.

I often travel alone. I feel a sense of empowered independence that is very significant. as it serves to remind me that I can have the same amount of independence, confidence, and courage, no matter where I am in the world. It reminds me that I can an intentional, creative and daring life.

In this current state of life where we have so many distractions, it is so important to be able to take a metaphorical break from our daily routine so we can come back to who we really are and find inspiration in our way of life.

Vacations allow me a change of pace, a chance to relax and rejuvenate, as well as an opportunity to explore and get adventurous with the places I explore and even the food that I eat. Trying different dishes often inspires me to come home and get creative and more daring in the kitchen.

What can I say, exploring the world has altogether changed my life. This month we are highlighting the importance of self-care and if you’re looking for a fun adventure, join me on one of my B.A.Y. Lifestyle retreats.
