Step one on this journey/adventure of a lifetime has begun…

My parents and I started our trip in Japan which was incredible! I’ve always had a strong desire to visit Japan and it exceed my expectations by a long shot. Beautifully lush nature, electric energy, and wonderful people make up the country that is Japan. We traveled through the Naritasan Shinshō-ji Temple (one of the biggest temple grounds in Japan), visited the electric city-ward Shibuya, and walked around Tokyo Disneyland.


From Japan we arrived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital city, before heading to Kampot, Cambodia. Cambodia’s countryside is very beautiful and far off the grid. When I arrived, I was taken back by how remote & off the grid the city is, but was consoled with breathtaking views, beautiful scenery, and sweet people. Teaching yoga every morning, helping out at the resort, and living an eco-efficient lifestyle (think composting toilets and no air-conditioning) will test me in all different ways and make me a stronger person; all I ask is for your love, support, and prayers as I trek through this journey. 🙂


“My strength did not come from lifting weights. My strength came from lifting myself up when I was down.” – Bob Moore

I taught my first class today and was filled with such appreciation and gratitude towards everyone who has helped me get this far. A special thank-you to my parents for supporting me 100%, traveling with me, raising me to take risks and rely on faith to keep me, and quoting the above phrase to me when I was unsure if I could do this. To everyone else that has supported me- thank y’all for all of the love and support!
