Dear Woman

Dear Woman

dear woman, too much woman, goddess, beauty

Dear Woman,

Sometimes you’ll just be too much woman.

Too smart.

Too beautiful.

Too strong.

dear woman, jared subia, grown goddess, less of a man, gabrielle orcutt

Too much of something that makes a man feel like less of a man,

Which will start making you feel like you have to be less of a woman.

The biggest mistake you can make is removing jewels from your crown

To make it easier for a man to carry.

dear woman, man hands, sensual, feminine, masculine, divine

When this happens, I need you to understand

You do not need a smaller crown –

You need a man with bigger hands.

– Michael E. Reid

Live a life that matters

Live a Life that Matters

Live a life that matters, gabrielle orcutt, Michael Josephson, andrik langfield

“Ready or not, it will all come to an end.
There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours or days.
All the things you collected, whether treasures or baubles, will pass to someone else…
It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed.
What will matter is not your success, but your significance.
What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught.
What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion or sacrifice
That ennobled, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example.
What will matter is not your competence, but your character. 
What will matter is not how many people you knew,
But how many people will feel a lasting loss when you are gone…
It won’t matter where you came from, or on which side of the tracks you lived at the end.
It won’t matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant;
Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant.

Live a life that matters, gabrielle orcutt, Michael Josephson, daniel burka

So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured?
What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built;
Not what you got, but what you gave.
What will matter is not your memories, 
But the memories that live in those who loved you.
What will matter is how long you will be remembered,
By whom, and for what.
Living a life that matters doesn’t happen by accident;
It is not a matter of circumstances, but of choice.”

– Michael Josephson

Why do we roll to the right side after savasana?

Savasana is the final pose of any yoga class and provides the body deep restoration after working hard throughout the class. Savasana is sometimes called Final Relaxation Pose. The Sanskrit name, “Savasana” (shah-VAHS-uh-nuh), comes from two words:  “Sava” meaning “corpse” and “asana” meaning “pose”. There are scientific studies that state your body works just as hard during the 5 minutes of rest or meditation in savasana as the body did throughout the prior 45-55 minutes of physical practice.

As the restful meditation comes to a close, your instructor will cue you back into awareness of your body and eventually bringing you back into stillness laying on your right side, head on your right bicep, in a fetal position. This allows the body and mind to transition up into a comfortably seated position close class and move on with your day. Many yogis and yoginis have questioned:

Why do we roll to the right side after savasana?

  • Physiological: Your heart is on the left side of your body. When you roll to your right side, your heart remains open and free of pressure. Your heart also remains above your organs on your right side leaving less weight on your heart. This means less pressure after savasana. Pausing on the right side allows your natural blood pressure to reach it’s potential homeostasis.
  • Energy Channels: Rolling to your right keeps your ida nadi (one of your main channels of prana, or life force, which corresponds to cooling energy) active and helps to keep your body calm as you come up to sitting. The left side of your body is your yin side. Lying on your right side allows you to continue to breath through your left nostril and continue the relaxing effects.
  • Spiritual and Ritual: In India, it is considered auspicious to enter a holy space with your right foot. In many parts of the world we greet each other by extending our right hands. The right side represent the east and so rolling towards the east, or the rising sun is symbolic of asking for blessings of grace and bliss.

**Please note that if you are pregnant you should roll to the left because this increases the flow of blood and nutrients to the baby.

Letting go

Letting go…

letting go, autumn, fall, leaves, gabrielle orcutt

I used to hate autumn…it was a slap in the face that winter was creeping in much faster than wanted #summergirlforlife But if you dig a little deeper you will find the true lesson in the autumn hues:

That letting go has never been so beautiful and freeing. 

letting go, gabrielle orcutt, autumn, fall


Leaves that cling on for dear life through to November are…dry…muted in color…lifeless… That is what clinging to relationships, things, dreams…will do to your soul if they are no longer serving you. I think sometimes we feel like we have to hold on to ppl or things because it’s what we are told we are supposed to do. But why hang on if it brings no joy? Society does’t care if you feel like sh-t or not…and this is not society’s life….

letting go, autumn, fall, gabrielle orcutt

How do you know if something no longer serves you? Time for an internal check: when you think about, use, or hang out with whatever you are holding onto, how do you FEEL? Yuck? Or yum? Hell no? Or F-ck YASSS? More times than not, the right route is the hard route…and the not so popular one. no matter what, no one should live according to what and how others think they should live. the reward for conformity is that everyone loves you but yourself.


Stop tolerating the bullsh-t and surround yourself with things, ideas and people that are uplifting to your spirit and over all well being.

letting go, autumn, fall, gabrielle orcutt
