She took a deep breath and let it go…


Sometimes you just need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.A Breathing exercise you can use to relax:

Belly breathing is easy to do and very relaxing. Try this basic exercise anytime you need to relax or relieve stress.

1. Sit or lie flat in a comfortable position.
2. Put one hand on your belly just below your ribs and the other hand on your chest.
3. Take a deep breath in through your nose, and let your belly push your hand out. Your chest should not move.
4. Breathe out through pursed lips as if you were whistling. Feel the hand on your belly go in, and use it to push all the air out.
5. Do this breathing 3 to 10 times. Take your time with each breath.
6. Notice how you feel at the end of the exercise.

‘When she finally learned how to let go of all the things that didn’t matter, she discovered all the things that really did. Just Breathe’

Karma. Every action has a reaction. Good deeds and good seeds lead to positive future effects and the opposite lead to suffering.

Your intentions affect your actions. If you take full responsibility of your thoughts, beliefs and actions – you take accountability for your reality.

There are believed to be 3 different types of karma:
Instant Karma (Parabda): How you act now affects your current or instant karma. Instant means the next few minutes, days, or months.
Acculumlated Karma (Sanchitta): This is Karma from earlier in your life as well as potentially past lives.
Future Karma (Agami): Unresolved Karma in the present can lead to future Karma.

Remember, karma can be both good and bad. It’s like a bank account. If you haven’t built up good karma start today:

1. Speak positive words
2. Be generous (with your time, thoughts, money and possessions)
3. Meditate
4. Be non judgmental and forgiving
5. Be a reflective student of life. Reflect on the lessons you have learned.
6. Think positively and be a beacon of good energy and vibes.
7. Love yourself. When you start with yourself you will love others deeper.
8. Connect – meet your neighbours, become friends with your dry cleaner – go deeper in the relationships you have with people you see each week.

Lots of love and good karma from xx



Let It Flow


Flow. Being “in the flow”. This means living in the beautiful place somewhere in between boredom and anxiety. Somewhere in the middle lies “the flow”.

This is the place where you are working with ease – you’re not lazy but you aren’t burning out. Just a perfect amount of doors are opening – you’re not overwhelmed with opportunities, its just right. You sleep peacefully at night, you have energy during the day, you meet friends serendipitously wherever you go, you’re living your purpose, you’re abundant, you’re playful, you feel healthy, life is just…. mmmmmmm.

Here’s our top 5 ways to flow through your life {or get into the flow}

1. Choose to spend your life doing work you love. If you don’t want to be a laywer even if the pay is good – don’t do it. Create another path – work with dogs for a living, become an artist, write books, do landscaping… whatever is calling your heart for work – do that. So much of our time on earth is spent working – do what you love – if you don’t know what that is – dedicate your free time to find it!

2. Create sacred alone time every day. Whether it’s 5 minutes or 5 hours for all you introverts out there. Being in the flow is a result of being connected to who you are. If you don’t spend time be yourself you aren’t building this deep inner relationship and not hearing your inner murmurs of direction and longing. Danielle LaPorte would call it Desire!

3. Create Space. You need rest time and you need it likely more than you think. Don’t overplan – leave a few nights a week that you can be spontaneous – where life can fill in the blanks. If you don’t have space then nothing unplanned can happen. There is a way greater plan out there than you can dream up for yourself so make sure you leave room on the canvas for it.

4. Practice vinyasa flow (ok any yoga will do). There is something about doing a vinyasa flow class that gets you in the flow – you become in-tune – you feel the ocean inside of you – you feel connected! Other ways to do this outside of yoga is to go get an ocean inspired massage or go for a walk near water.

5. Play everyday. When you take on a relaxed and playful attitude you are more open and receptive to the flow. Laugh, sing, dance, play. When something out of the ordinary or accidental happens – roll with it. If you open the “wrong door” stay for awhile. Sometimes the silliest things in life lead to the most epic, beautiful stories… don’t be too serious and miss the playful moments that lead to magic.

Positive duties. Observances. The 5 Niyamas are internal practices (read: Recommended activities) and habits for daily living, enlightenment and feeling zen

Here are the 5 Niyamas and how to apply them, beautiful:

1. Purity: This is all about living clean – whether its the food we eat, the thoughts we think, the people we surround ourself with, the music and media we consume and our environment. The belief here is that everything we surround ourself affects us. If we surround ourselves with beauty and goodness we will be lighter more gracious beings

2. Contentment (Santosha)
“It’s not having what you want, but loving what you got.” Sheryl Crow said it best! Contentment is all about living in gratitude – not focusing on possessions and the awareness that happiness through materialism is only temporary.

3. Tapas (persistent meditation, perseverance)
The niyama of tapas is all about self-discipline and will power! Doing something we don’t want to do but that we know will have a very positive effect on our life : going to the gym when we’re tired, making that healthy salad when its easier to just get takeout, saving the money instead of spending it on the new dress – you get the point. The tapas or fire energy that is built up during disciplined actions is strong spiritual energy that is believe to burn up karma and impurities.

4. Self reflection (self study)
You are a divine being. When you dive into getting to know yourself on a deep level you start to see your truth self revealed : light, love and deep with wisdom: spend time alone, journal, take a few minutes to look at yourself in the mirror and deep into your eyes. You are divine

5. Devotion (Contemplation/surrender)
The last niyama is all about surrender to the divine. A higher power – the universe – whatever you want to call it. This niyama is all about being selfless and devoted to something outside of yourself.
You can practice this niyama by: dedicating you yoga practice to someone else, letting go of a “desired result”, and letting situations unfold instead of forcing direction.

Namaste. You’ve heard it before. Maybe as a greeting when you enter a yoga class in Bali with hands at heart in prayer or at the end of the a yoga class in response to your teacher saying it to you…

So what’s it mean???!!!

Namaste. May the beauty, the gorgeousness, the light, the strength, the power, the source, the gratitude, the wisdom, the love in me acknowledge that in you. 

It’s a greeting, its a farewell, it’s a way to enter, a way to close.

Namaste – we bow to you wink emoticon

Whats In Her Boho Bag with MB LaRue

She’s a yoga teacher + life coach, as well as a lover of avocados, French press coffee, hip hop, Mala Beads and dogs – especially her lovable English bulldog Rosy. Mary Beth Larue is the co-founder of Rock Your Bliss a yoga + goals movement inspiring and empowering others to live their yoga both on and off their yoga mats.



We caught up with MB to find out whats in her bag!

my iPad mini: My husband surprised me with this gift last Christmas and I carry it with me everywhere. It’s chock full of all of my favorite music (Lapsley, Erykah Badu, Bonobo), my favorite books (anything by Byron Katie plus a billion other books) and notes for my classes, retreats, blogs, etc. It’s a creative Virgo’s dream come true!
Stinky Yogi’s Pranayama Blend: I am obsessed with this blend of essential oil by my girl Stacey. The blend is peppermint, eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon.
my Rock Your Bliss mala: I love the mala Jacki and I designed with Tiny Devotions. My favorite stone is the Howlite guru stone which influences you to release stress and let go of negativity so you can create space in your heart and mind for love, creativity + bliss. The stone inspires us to receive wisdom and attunement from the Higher Self and the Divine. And the mala is GORGEOUS. (ya… we totally agree MB! :))
my red, tattered, so-loved Moleskine notebook: Oh man, this notebook has been loved up. It’s full of class sequences, musings, to-do lists, etc. I love looking through it. And the back pocket is stuffed with notes, things ripped out of magazines, etc.
my headphones: I adore my noise cancellation headphones for solo coffee shop dates. It says “I’m focused, no chit chat.” :)
my Moo business cards: You know how some people get offended by the question, “So what do you do?” I find this the juiciest question ever and am absolutely never offended. I love hearing what people are passionate about and what lights them up. And I’m always into building community. (Except in a coffee shop with my head phones on. :) )
my Ganesha keychain: I’ve had a Ganesha keychain in my bag for 9 years and have lost it several times and always find it. Ganesha is a Hindu deity and the remover of obstacles and I like to think that he’s working for me all the time.
Grab your gypset tote and hit up Rock Your Bliss’ next retreat!

Just Add Bliss

When you own a company called Rock Your Bliss you are kinda held accountable to, ya know, rock that bliss. That being said, we don’t wake up every single day bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to take on the day. We no doubt have our slumps. But these are our top three tried and true ways to shortcut our way to bliss. Let us know what you think and share your own in the comments below.

#1 Infuse Intention.
When we’re not operating from a space of intention, we’re relying on our habitual ways of being. “Getting by,” if you will. Infuse intention into everything you do. How do you decide on the intention? First ask yourself what you want more of in your life. Creativity, playfulness, compassion. Then operate from that soul space.
#2 Move your body.
Jacki is a runner and a lover of yin yoga. MB is currently digging meditation, CrossFit and an occasional Pilates ass kicking. Whatever gets you out of your head and into your body (hello, dance party!) is all good. Just play.
#3 Unplug.
Leave your phone at home and go for a long walk with your pup, a hike in the mountains or along the shore. Look around. Observe. Instant dose of creativity and spaciousness.

Want bliss? Join MB and Jacki in Sayulita, Mexico October 10-17 for a transformational week in their favorite place on the planet. Amidst ocean breezes, expect life changing conversation, sweaty yoga sessions and blissed out evenings on the sand. @marybethlarue and @jackicarr designed a program that will uplift and inspire, and create big shifts in your daily life. At the same time, enjoy a vacay in a tropical paradise – surfing, snorkeling and sipping margaritas.Space is limited so snag your spot fast.
