“I choose to say yes”- Gypset Goddess

We connected with the buddhaful Gypset Goddess to show our community why this yogi is so amazing + inspiring!

What brought you to your mat for the first time?

Simple, I said YES. A friend invited me to a yoga class, and I said yes. Life is all about choices. I choose to say yes to new experiences as often as I can. A chance to try something new? Yes. An opportunity to make a new friend? Yes. A chance to go to someplace that I’ve never been before? Yes. It’s so easy to say “no”, but it’s so rewarding to say “yes”.

What is your favorite mala, and why?

My favorite mala is the Babe Mala. I connected with the intention behind it, and the combination of colors and materials, immediately. One of my mantras is: “Believing in possibility makes everything possible. I believe that everything is possible.” Sometimes my insecurities speak louder than my heart, and I am susceptible to fear and self-doubt. The Babe Mala reminds me to listen to my heart, and have the confidence and knowledge that I can manifest my goals and dreams to become my reality.

Who and what inspires you?

I am inspired by courage. This can manifest in many different forms. Trying new things, going new places, meeting new people, conquering fears, rising above adversity. It’s not easy to leave your comfort zone, but a full life waits on the other side. People who have the courage to try, to risk failure, to fail, and to try again, are the people who change the world. Changing the world can happen on a very small or very grand scale, but if no one ever had the courage to try, nothing would ever happen.

How do you set intentions in your life?

This makes me think of a sang that always makes me smile: “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” I don’t eat elephants, but I always think of this sang when I think of intentions. I set them one hour at a time, day at a time, one week at a time, one month at a time, etc.

What advice do you have for all the boho yogis out there?

My advice is this: If you believe that anything is possible, then it is.  Follow your heart, and you’ll see some amazing places.
