Mother’s Into Living Fit August 2018 Newsletter

“A Birthday is another 365 day trip around the sun, enjoy the ride!”


In our family, this is birthday season. Every year around this time, I like to look back at the last year and see if I have met my goals that I set out for myself on August 31st last year. I know that January 1st is usually when goals and resolutions are set, for me I like to set them on my birthday, as a reminder that each trip around the sun is another opportunity to share what I love to do. I love to be of service and help people to experience the joy of movement. There is a special place in my heart for Moms and babies, and bringing the gifts yoga and fitness to my community makes my heart smile. Here are some of the recent highlights from this last trip around the sun.


Thanks OM Yoga magazine for giving me the opportunity to work with one of my besties, the super talented photographer Natiya Guin, on this shoot. Last year I created a vision board with the words “Yoga for Pregnancy, kindness, and grounding,” on it- and what a lovely surprise to see them all there on the cover! Also, special thanks to Manduka for the beautiful apparel.

Soy Mexicana! I was born in Chicago and my father was Mexican. I am proud of my Mexican heritage and was excited to be invited to lead a Yoga class at Plaza de la Cultura y Artes in downtown LA with the hosts of The Trend Talk Show Naibe Reynoso and Bel Hernandez. What a joy to share Yoga with these beautiful, empowered Latinas! I have more special events coming up this year. Look for my social media handles on this message to stay connected and attend an event or a class.

My family and I have a lot to be thankful for. As I celebrate another trip around the sun, I am creating a new vision board. If you have never created a vision board, here are some fun ways to get started:


  • Collect your old magazines and cut out words and photos that inspire you
  • If there is something that you cannot find in a magazine that you want to include on your board, google it and print out an image
  • Include photos of family, friends, and places that are meaningful to you
  • Paste or tape the images onto colorful paper, I like to add glitter
  • Invite your kids to create a board with you
  • Invite your kids to create a board with you
  • Put the board somewhere that you can see it every day, mine is in my closet where I get dressed


With Love and Gratitude,
