Women | Health | Life: A Year in the Life & Soul Sisterhood of the Traveling Yoga Pants ~ Part 7

 

If any of you have been wondering, ‘what in the world happened to Zoey’s  traveling yoga pants’ … my pants have been in use, however, haven’t traveled far from my home and local studio of Shanti Yoga.

Today, I am very excited to say, my yoga pants (vintage black lululemon capri yoga pants) and myself are embarking on the next level of my ‘life long learning’ as I am starting Day 1 of “Pre-natal Yoga Teacher Training” at Semperviva Yoga in Vancouver.

As a life coach (leadership and executive coaching too) who uses a holistic body centered approach, adding yoga to my skills makes sense.  In my work, I engage with many women who want to have healthy babies and adding first ‘pre-natal’ yoga, then ‘yin yoga’ to my repertoire seems perfect.

As a life coach, I encourage the women I work with to design a self care routine and suggest that it include daily mindful ‘body movement’ and meditation.  I distinguish ‘body movement’ from ‘exercise’ and both are important!

So, I’m off to day 1 of my 11 day training.  I am nervous and excited and can’t wait to share more of my experiences with you!

 

In peace & mindfulness,

namaste,

Zoey

Inspirational Quote of the Day – Words of Wisdom

Faith

‘When you come to the edge of all light that you have and take a step into the darkness of the unknown; you must believe that one of two things will happen … There will be something solid for you to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.’

Women | Health | Life: Women in Leadership

I offer you these words of wisdom about women and success from a courageous woman leader, Anita Roddick. Anita founded ‘The Body Shop’ with a friend and grew this business through passion and the purpose of women helping women, sustainability and reducing violence towards women. The original Body Shop ads were provocative, edgy and effective.

I was honoured to be able to experience Anita’s charisma first hand, when she visited Vancouver.

Anita passed on a few years ago and she remains a powerful role model for me in women and leadership.

Anita’s words of wisdom …

To succeed you have to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality.’

Enjoy these words of wisdom and your day!

In peace & mindfulness…

namaste,

Women |Life | Wisdom: Good Night Moon

Even though all my daughters are in their 20’s, at a certain time of the evening, I start reciting “Good Night Moon”…

I miss those precious ‘baby days’

Wishing for, peace and mindfulness as we say goodnight to the day and rest in welcome expectancy for the dawning.

Women | Life | Work: Heart Centered Leadership

What is ‘leadership’ and what kind of a leader are you? Here are some words of wisdom from  two skilled and experienced women leaders and organizational development specialists!

 

“Great leaders are conscious guardians of both personal and organizational vision and values. This guardianship becomes part of who they are, and guides all they do.”

From ‘Legacy Leadership: The Leader’s Guide to Lasting Greatness’ by Jeannine Sandstrom and Lee Smith

This quote can also apply to being a leader in your family if you substitute the word ‘family’ for ‘organization’.

In peace & mindfulness,
