When’s the last time you took incredible care of yourself?

Of course, pedicures, massages, and trips to the spa are all really great self-care and definitely count toward taking care of yourself. But I am talking about self-care beyond the physical. The kind of self-care that fuels you from the inside out and makes you feel like you can accomplish anything you set your mind to!

I am speaking about self-care for the BODY, MIND, & SOUL.

I recently was a guest on a the Free Your Inner Guru Podcast with Laura Tucker and had the opportunity to speak about the 3 pillars of Self-Care: Body Care, Mind Care, and Soul Care and their importance in helping us to become more grounded and peaceful in our lives.

During our conversation we discussed burnout, overwhelm, and how self-care can be a catalyst to change not just our physical body, but also our mindset and how we feel about ourselves.

By going beyond the physical practices of self-care you open a doorway to a real and lasting transformation.

And for me, self-care has become a way to listen to my inner voice and have clarity on the big issues in my life so that I can move forward with greater ease and joy on my path and help others do the same.

One of the reasons I began doing retreats is to help people disconnect from their everyday routine so that they can tune into their inner world to find their own inner guru, where all of the answers are.

During the retreats the participants uncover a new part of themselves that they forgot existed and learn to bring that essence forward into their lives more fully. They feel a greater sense of empowerment, ease, joy, and happiness and come back home with a fearless attitude ready to take on new projects confidently and compassionately.

They become kinder and gentler with themselves and those around them.

These retreats are so much more than yoga retreats. They are filled with many self-care tools that go beyond the yoga practice to give the participants an experience they will cherish for a lifetime.

The women attending the Empower ME Costa Rica Retreat are going to be treated like Queens from the classes and workshops to the accommodations, meals, and all details in between.

It is not only my passion, but my purpose to help others discover their purpose and begin to live it here on earth.

And self-care is the pathway that takes us there.

If you’ve read this far you know the importance of self-care and appreciate how it can shift and transform so many things in your life.  I’d love to hear from you.  What is your favourite self-care practice?  How long have you been making self-care a priority? Or if you’re struggling, what are you finding to be your greatest obstacle in taking care of yourself?

Send me a message, I’d love to hear from you.  

With you on this self-care journey,
