"The Art of Loss & Love"

“To be loved is the greatest gift." – Diana Christinson

You know the moments that blindside you and put everything else into perspective? This week’s episode will change the way you think about everything as we discuss the meaning of our one and precious life with Diana Christinson. A yoga teacher for over 20 years and the founder of Pacific Ashtanga Yoga Shala, it was the loss of her husband just 48 days after his cancer diagnosis that truly showed Diana the importance of living a life of love and gratitude. She went on to found the Love BIG Project in his honor, to remind others just how short life is, and to inspire them to find gratitude and take advantage of every moment of it. Diana shares both the heart-wrenching difficulty and the bittersweet beauty of grief, along with perspectives from her personal experience on how to deal with it. She shares an extra special gratitude meditation with us at the end of the episode – we guarantee it will refresh the way you move throughout your day.

“When you take that last breath, what will really matter?” – Diana Christinson

  3. Self-Care Hack? 
    I make sure to clear everyone out of my space every night and get out into nature. I clear people’s energy by creating a bubble out infront of you, putting everyone from the day in that bubble, and then blow up the bubble. This gives the person their energy back.
