Life Update

TLDR: Yoga Teacher certification, travel, and new business opportunities

Hello lovelies! It’s been a few months since you’ve last heard from me.

I am coming at you live from Sri Lanka where I am taking a short break during a few wild months of growth and new opportunities.

When I last posted, I told you all I was to taking these past few months off from blogging/creating new projects to really zero in on a few endeavors that needed my complete attention.

In October I finally took my freelance marketing to the next level. I launched an agency, Bananaquit Media L.L.C. where I produce stunning digital content for brands committed to holistic wellness and sustainable living.

After months of paperwork and lots of other admin things it felt so great to see things come to life! Taking this step into entrepreneurship was scary but has been so rewarding.

In November, I traveled to Varkala, India to complete my 200 hour ashtanga – hatha yoga teacher training. I have been teaching self taught yoga for a few years now but this took my practice to another level. It was one of the most physically, spiritually, and mentally intense things I have done to date.

Assisted ardha chandrasana (half moon pose)
Vrksasana (tree pose)

And the food was so amazing 😛

Pulao (spiced rice, stock and veggies), Chana masala (chickpea curry), steamed veg, salad, and chapati (flatbread)
Lentils, rice, veg curries, coconut cabbage, fried crispy snacks (I forget the name), salad, pickled mango
Masala dosa (think a savory crepe made of rice and lentil flour and filled with curried potatoes), coconut chutney, and veggie curry
Puttu (coconut and rice cakes), Chana masala (chickpea curry), mixed fruits
Rice, lentils, coconut lentils, puréed lentils, veg curry, salad, and papadum (fried flatbread made from either rice, lentil, potato, or tapioca flour)

I loved every second of it. Ya girl is officially certified to teach yoga to the people. Whoop!

I am in Sri Lanka, teaching yoga and basking in this beautiful opportunity. I am so grateful for everything that I’ve experienced thus far.

From here on out, you can expect to hear weekly updates from me as I continue to travel and spread my light.
