I was..

an unhappy child who became and grew into a happy adult

I wish I had my father around as a child

I wish he showed up on my wedding day

I wish I spoke to him after he bailed and didn’t hold a grudge.

I wish I spoke to him before he died to tell him I was sorry and that I love him

I was a bad student, who became a self motivator

I ran away from home for 6 months

I was bullied, made fun of and picked on as a kid and became a confident, beautiful woman

I was a smoker and a party animal. I never did drugs.

I went to school in Boston for Fashion Merchandising

I lived in NYC

I had a 10 year career in the jewelry business as Account Executive. And traveled to India monthly

I was a stay at home mom

I was a wife and will probably never be one again

I was a Director of Business Development and Marketing Director for large auto groups

I am divorced

 

I am addicted to life. Never addicted to drugs or alcohol. Came close after the storm.

I am addicted to self care, yoga, and any other new experiences that will come my way.

I love sunrises and sunsets and taking pictures

I love my children and watching them grow

I love having talks with my 16 year old daughter

I love watching my son play sports

I love teaching them about life. Real life.

I love the relationship I have with my x husband and the decision I made to leave him. He is one of my best friends.

I love my house

I love to walk, ride, paddle, and hike

I love nature

I love to travel

I love dive bars

I love pasta

I love making people feel good about themselves

I love to motivate people

I love ripped jeans, a flannel and a baseball hat

I love the smell of coconut

I love music. All music

I saw Motley Crue 9 times

My favorite movie is the Wizard of Oz

I love quotes

I love getting up at the crack of dawn

I love getting up at the crack of dawn to teach yoga to an amazing group of people who I call my friends

My house is not spotless. It's lived in

My jeep is the same

I don’t care for liars. Lie to me; and I always find out. (call it part witch or good intuition)

I don’t care for gossip

I don't like politics

I don’t like fake people

I don’t kiss ass

I don't like anchovies or Indian food

I don’t stress

I don’t worry anymore. It gets you nowhere

I take one day at a time

I don’t have a crystal ball to see the future, nor do I want one

I have done things I regret. But they are lessons learned. And it is all part of growing up.

I am what I am. “Don't judge me until you know me, Don’t underestimate me until you have challenged me and do not talk about me until you have talked to me.

 

This is me.

I am what am I.

 

Who is SUKHA?

 

SUKHA means happiness is Sanskrit

Yoga makes me happy and I want everyone who comes to SUKHA to leave happy

SUKHA is different. I am different. .Call it untraditional or unconventional

But it is what it is and people come to SUKHA to relax, mingle, practice yoga, laugh, sing, dance and yes; have fun!!

 

We talk. Tell jokes.

I allow cell phones. Because life happens.

SUKHA is non intimidating

I have men and women of all shapes and sizes who were scared to try yoga. Men who couldn't touch their knee caps let alone their toes that are now doing forearm stands.

Women who had low self esteem and are now looking in the mirror every morning telling themselves how amazing they are

 

Music has been the soundtrack of my life and it is a huge part of SUKHA.

 

You will never hear the same playlist twice

Rarely will you hear the same song.

So, this is me and I am SUKHA

I am happy and non intimidating

I don't speak Sanskrit and I may practice with you

I may forget a pose, but I will announce that I fucked up

 

The voice you hear now is the same voice you hear if you see me out, in my home and everyday.

I am who I am.

 

And thank you for listening

So let's get started
