I'm the queen of excuses

I’m currently taking a meditation training with a teacher based in NY (I highly recommend it for anyone in the market).

Socca for the soul

I had never heard of socca until a year ago. The first time I had it was with a dear friend in Nevada City. I was a guest teacher at her studio and in between sessions we got to enjoy a meal together.
