  • Resort Review: Majestic Colonial Punta Cana


    I recently returned home from a four night, five-day girl’s getaway trip to the Dominican Republic. We stayed at the Majestic Colonial, which is an all-inclusive resort that is part of the Majestic Resorts located in Punta Cana. Over the last 10 years or so I have traveled a good bit around the Caribbean and Mexico [...]

  • The Journey Home + Weekly Workouts


    Hi! I am currently camped out in the Punta Cana airport with two hours left to go before my flight departs.

  • Friday in Paradise


    Happy Friday! It's been a beautiful day here in Punta Cana! We were shocked to wake up this morning and discover it was 9:45. We slept 10+ hours last night. We decided to get moving with a poolside yoga practice led by one of my friends who is also a yoga teacher. It was sweaty, [...]

The past seven days of vacation have been more amazing than I ever could have imagined. I think was more smiling, laughing, loving, happiness, peace and gratitude on this trip than there's been [...]

  • A Day in the Vacation Life…


    Good morning and happy Tuesday! Some of you have inquired about exactly what this trip is that I'm on. It's a yoga retreat through the studio back home where I teach and practice. There are 24 of us who traveled down here together to yoga and vacation. Basically, adult spring break. We practice twice a [...]

  • Arrival in Punta Cana


    I said goodbye to rainy 37 degree Charlotte yesterday. We were a bit delayed leaving due to the weather but nothing too bad. Pretty scenery from the plane. First cerveza of the trip on our hour longbus ride to the resort. The food at the resort is good. Dinner last night. Drinks after with the [...]
