Aloha love,
Here we are, at the completion of another calendar year...
 
This time of year is such a perfect time for reflection back upon 
what we created with the past 12 months of our lives. 
 
Whether you are one to set goals, intentions or any other type of 
structured way to put your ideas and dreams into a written form, 
I feel one of the most powerful things we can do is acknowledge
all that you have accomplished already both inside of yourself 
and out in the world. 
 
For me, the real juicy goodness comes from acknowledging the powerful 
expansion that occurs in our hearts, minds and souls. 
 
Thoughts like, am I a more compassionate person then this time last year? 
Do I have a good relationship with my father (mother, husband, wife, boss, etc)? 
Have I been of service to others in a positive way, 
when they needed me?
 
These types of thoughts make us realize the multi dimensional 
creatures we are, and how everything affects everything. 
 
So this weekend (or right now!), take this time, to sit with yourself. 
All you need is a paper and pen and your own open heart and mind. 
 
Write 3 headings: 
 
1). What did I accomplish this year? (list EVERY LITTLE THING! you'll be suprised by all you have done, and it will boost your confidence to take the next steps)
 
2). Which relationships did I invest time to cultivate, strengthen &/or heal this year?
 
And then consider:
 
3). What am I most inspired to create with the next 12 months? 
 
Every new year (and every day actually) 
we get to start brand new, with a whole new set of paint brushes
and a clean canvas to create the landscape of our heart's desires and dreams. 
 
*Create (Visualize)- What does your heart & soul desire to create in 2012? 
 
*Partner (Give)- Who can you partner with to gain (and give) the support 
necessary to take your ideas to the next level and manifest into the material world?
 
*Opportunities (Receive)- What opportunities are appearing for you now,
that may be in alignment for you to simply open the door
and let in the blessings you've been calling in?
 
*Let go (allow)- What must you let go of, that is no longer serving you, 
that will allow your life to be more 'In the Flow?'
(ie - pride, ego, being right, etc)
 
And last but not least, 
 
*Transform (Become)- What areas of my physical health must I address immediately, 
since I understand that my physical health and condition is often
a map of my mental, emotional and spiritual self expressing itself through 
my physical body. It may take some time, but now is the best time to begin!
 
These questions should keep you busy for a little while :)
 
It is my humble desire to help you in any way I can. 
I have created a few new opportunities for us to connect,
if you wish to take our relationship a bit deeper. 
 
Live Video Coaching!

We can now do online skype coaching here on my friends new website, 
check it out and sign up if you are ready to meet me online. There are several categories 
to select from, topics include: yoga, nutrition, guided meditation, career coaching for
yoga teachers and health professionals, and more :)
 
 
We're adding a Pranashama YTT in Miami Beach, USA!

If you didn't know yet, I have relocated back to Miami Beach, FL to live.
After almost 2 years in LA, I missed my warm aqua blue ocean,
clean air to breath and amazing sunshine. They don't call Miami
"Magic City" for no reason! It is truly wonderful here :)

I can't wait to share this place with you!

 
I've been scouting for locations to host a training,
and have found a perfect one!
 
This March (dates tba asap) I will host a 7-14 day 
YTT program, which you can earn up to 100 hours toward
your yoga teacher training certification in the gorgeous Miami Beach :)
 
If you are interested in learning about this, there will be a limited 
number of spots available and pre-registration must be made by Feb. 1, 2012.. 
so post on facebook or email me directly if you would like to be put on the 
waiting list for that training.  And stay tuned for more details. 
 
2012 Scholarship Contest

The contest is going great. We have over 30 entries now, and growing. 
If you have a desire to join us in Bali this June for the 30 day yoga training 
retreat, but finances are an obstacle, please enter to possibly win a scholarship. 
Keep in mind, we will award more then just the full ride. We also 
are offering several $500 scholarships to help people out with tuition, 
for this life changing transformational Journey of a Lifetime.

"To solve the human equation, we need to add love, subtract hate, multiply good, and divide between truth and error."
-- Janet Coleman
 
Aloha My Love,
 
How are you?

Since I have been back from Bali,

I have been waking up at the sunrise and being still with the silence. 
Allowing my mind to go in whichever direction it will, 
and bringing it back to the center, back with my breath --gently. 
 
I'm really working on being more gentle with myself. 
 
And I would offer that we can all benefit from this practice. 
 
Loving kindness with what is. 
 
Whatever is occurring for you. 
Whatever is arising in your life. 
Surrender and stop for a moment. 
See that it is all divine. 
All that is happening --these forces are from a greater power at play. 
 
Allow these subtle messages to be your guiding angels. 
Listen deeply and sincerely and know that the 
answers will all be revealed to you, in the stillness of the present
moment. 
 
All we have to do is: ASK.
 
Ask for help, ask for what you need. 
And expect that you will always be given exactly what you 
need. 
 
Not always what you WANT.. that is the hard part for most of us.
 
I ask and sometimes things show up so quickly I'm shocked!
 
And then sometimes I'm asking in 10 different ways and 
the messages are not getting through, or so it appears!
 
So, then I am reminded: 
 
All occurs in divine time. 
 
Be patience and grace -- allow for the unfolding of
the beauty of the master plan of your life and
all your heart's desires will come to fruition. 
 
The key is trust, clarity and emptiness. 
 
We must empty our cup of expections and projection. 
 
Release the traumas from the past and let go of our story. 
 
Be open to receive and the blessing will surely come in 
a more beautiful package then we could have ever envisioned!
 
Empty my cup and fill me with love. 
 
Guide me with thy will and reveal to me where I am needing to grow. 
Then offer me the options that I may take advantage 
of the resources this abundant life has to offer. 
 
What must I let go of to create space for the greater more 
expanded version of who I am, who we are as a human family and as a 
global community?
 
These have been my mantras, my meditations this week.
 
The answers that came to me:
One thing that has come to me is that many people ask if they can get the 
30DYC home study course for the discount price, even after the sale has ended. 
 
This has urged me to create a new option, which lowers the price and 
gives you a 2 payment option, so you can access this transformational 
home study course without money being an issue. 
 
You can see the new price is lower and you can pay in 2 installments, 
for even greater accessibility: http://www.30dyc.com 
 
Another thing I have created, in response to the inquiries about Europe
and Mexico training options are 2 week long Pranashama Yoga
Training Retreats, you can see the details and register here: 
and click the link to see info, pics and to register for the Ibiza Training Retreat. 
 
These will both give you 50 hours toward your Pranashama Yoga
Teacher Certification and also can act as a catalyst to help you 
create what your heart is desiring right now. 
 
Even if that is just some peace and yoga in paradise :)
 
Last year we really had an amazing time in Ibiza. 

One of the hugest breakthroughs I had in Ibiza was in relation to 
abundance. I even wrote an amazing article about it, called
"A Beggar in the Kingdom" which I will release to you one day...
or perhaps it will be a chapter in my next book :)
 
If you didn't know already about my story, I actually grew up very poor. 
We bought our food with foodstamps and received the government WIC free
cheese and milk as well. Since we didn't have funds for new shoes, we always
wore hand me downs. My shoes were so tight growing up, some of my toes 
got cramped and it took me years to uncramp them through some yoga foot 
exercises. That's why I laugh sometimes when the foot fetish viewers
comment about how cute my feet are on youtube!! :) hehe
 
My mother received an SSI check due to her clinically diagnosed schizophrenic mental 
disorder, and that was how we got by. I can remember walking 2 miles
to the local mini part, Mr. Pope's to buy an orange orange sherbert push pop for 1
food stamp dollar. Mr. Pope didn't typically take food stamps, since his shop was a 
gas station, but he made the exception for us. My sisters and I were a sight to see!
4 tiny little girls walking 2 miles in the summer to buy an ice cream cone with a food stamp!
 
I'll tell you one thing: 
I enjoyed and appreciated every single last lick of that push pop, 
EVERY SINGLE TIME. 
 
It made me a more grateful human being to grow up with nothing. 
I wouldn't change the past for anything in the world. 
 
So, for me, the process of allowing abundance into my life has not been easy. 
For years, I wanted to give everything away all the time and had a terrible time 
charging a price for anything I did. As a result of that, for many years I was broke
and struggling and in debt. 
 
Another thing that has taken me my entire life so far to do is to 
ask for help.
 
Growing up in foster homes, I didn't know who I could 
trust for help or support. So, I learned very early to do everything for 
myself. That was a good thing to a certain extent, as it made me very self 
sufficient.  Most people can see how much I can create on my own. 
 
But now I am being called to co-create and collaborate. 
 
I want to work with many others and am breaking through my 
trust barriers all the time. I am excited about the upcoming Journey to Joyful 
book tour, since I know this is the first big step in the direction toward
the vision of global unity that I have been holding so closely in my heart
all of these years. I made this video a few years ago, if you didn't see it
 
I know it begins with me, it begins with YOU and together we 
can make it a reality. 
 
Over the years, I have been blessed with the courage to seek guidance 
and find mentors who would help me along the way. 
 
Although when I did have the money, I have always preferred to go to live
trainings with my teachers, as these catalyze the greatest shift for me...
 
Many times, these mentors have taught me through online courses,
which were the only things I could afford. 
 
I got scammed online a few times, at the age 18 I paid over
$4,000 for a program I didn't have the money for,
and later realized it wasn't even something I really cared at all about. 
 
So, I have learned through the school of hard knocks and I know what it is 
like to be on both sides of the stick. 
 
Being broke sucks. 
 
And to have abundance is great, but it can make people 
act differently toward you as well. 
 
So, there is a careful balance we all must find in life. 
This balance must take place in the mind first. 
 
We see ourselves in one way--
and we hopefully behave in alignment with that vision. 
 
This is true balance. 
Mind, body, heart and soul in alignment. 
One common vision bridging them all together. 
This is a strong force and nothing on earth can ever 
stop such a force from reaching the brightness of the sunshine 
or the radiance of the star-shine, here on earth. 
 
You are a star. 
You are meant to shine. 
So, shine on you crazy diamond!
 
I hope to meet you sometime soon.
Blessings and Love all ways, 
Namaste,
Dashama
 
***PS. The affiliate program is a winning idea so far! My long time friend and co-creator Ryan, who also joined us in Bali to share some of his brilliant internet marketing strategies with the new Pranashama Yoga Teachers, is also the master mind behind the Affiliate program.
 
If you learn the system (and it is super easy btw) you can make BIG extra income. Dave Smyth earned $900 his first week in the program by referring 2 students to the Bali Yoga Training retreat next summer. And you can do this too. Here is the link to register: 
 
Contact me or Ryangunness@gmail.com if you have any questions. He's going to be providing support in this arena, and we'll give more info later.
 
 
PPS. We are looking for few new blog contributors for both perfect10lifestyle.com and 30dayyogachallenge.com. Both of these get thousands of visitors each month and 
I don't always have time to post new blogs each week.. although I try, there is only so much time in the day.
 
So, if you are a great writer, passionate about what you do and
can write about topics like yoga, health, fitness, mind, body, spiritual or even eco fashion and nutrition, I would love to connect with you to see if your blogs would be a great fit for the community.
 
One of my new Prana Shaman, Dave Smyth from Isle of Mann will begin blogging for us soon, so that is very exciting! He is not a 500 hour registered yoga teacher as well as a very accomplished musician! His CD album is at #3 in Europe for Classic Rock right now! Go Dave!! You are so awesome :)
 
We can all share and in that sharing, there is tremendous growth.
You can gain exposure to a wider audience and we all benefit from your brilliance.
Email me or lacey@30dayyogachallenge.com if you want to know more.
 
Be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube where I post all the new pics, videos and info.
 
Blessings and Love xoxo

Happy Sun-day!

I hope you are enjoying these warm sunny summer days... they seem to bring so much peace and joy, with the long warm days, mother earth is so vibrant and alive in the presence of the sun!

And just like the trees, flowers and grass, humans need sunshine and warmth to flourish and grow. We need attention, love and fresh air! So be sure to step outside and go for that walk, hike, run, swim or yoga session in the park you've been dreaming about.
