RECAP: International Day of Yoga

Wow! Time sure does fly when you're having fun during the summertime in sunny San Diego. Let's backtrack to June 19th when Pilgrimage of the Heart and Pura Vida yoga studios hosted a free yoga event at Balboa Park for International Day of Yoga in San Diego. A wonderfully diverse group of people with inner yogi and yogini hearts joined together to practice a community class taught by Xenia, Alexa Hatt, Courtney Yezzi (pictured below), Jamie Martin (pictured below).

19 specialty sessions took place afterwards and I attended Sydney Cohen's inversion workshop with a fellow Yoga/Barre instructor friend Brittany Harmon (pictured below). With safe and clear instruction Sydney guided students and teachers alike into arm balancing poses and handstands, which always leave me feeling strong, accomplished, and glowing with inner happiness radiating out. 

Below are a few photos highlighting the collective energy from these amazing yogi and yoginis of all ages. More photos to come. If you'd like to stay updated on this photo collection, comment on the post below or email me at

If you missed this year's celebration, there is always space for you to enjoy your practice with other like-minded individuals and explore your choice and type of yoga.  

Collab: Speckled Bliss x oojooverse

We recently collaborated with 0ojo0verse for a fun photoshoot in honor of International Day of Yoga. They have rad leggings and other apparel you can rock in your next yoga class, festival, or daily errand. 

Their designs are consciously created to "enlighten and embrighten your lives with the lush colors and patterns this universe has to offer". And personally, I am excited to see all the latest designs they launch to creation.

Not only do they offer these magnificently-colored wearable art pieces, but they are also giving back to Soldiers' Angels to help the troops and veterans face the battles ahead.

Stay updated with their latest designs by following them on Instagram. Until 7/31, they'll have 15% off all their leggings! 



Enjoy your leggings and stay blissed!

Til next time!

Recap: Art Around Adams

Saturday's Art Around Adams in Normal Heights was a great event! 

For the first time, I was able to share a sneak peek into what Speckled Bliss is all about.
The mantra: Allow every speckle of happiness to fulfill your mind, body, and soul. 
The medium: Illustrations and Plant-Based Experiments.

It was great to see friendly faces and meet people of all ages throughout San Diego come by to enjoy live music and performances as well as

I had my booth located inside PIlgrimage of the Heart Yoga Studio on Adams Ave. The light blue walls of the East Room with the wooden rope wall and floors added an organic and peaceful vibe for the whole day. See for yourself below!

We had healthy smoothies provided by GreenFix Organic Smoothie for those who were already familiar with the local San Diego farmers markets' staple and those who have never tried it before. First timers were pleasantly surprised that something so green and healthy was "actually pretty good!". 

What a wonderful way to introduce these pH balancing organic goodness to kids and adults alike so they taste firsthand that healthy foods can absolutely be delicious! This plant-based experiment is deemed successful.

It’s critical to have them
To help find your purpose in life. 

To feed your mind.
To feed your soul.
To feed your ultimate well-being.

What would we be without them?
Stagnant. Complacent. Arrogant. Ignorant. 

We need them.
To learn. To grow, like a plant.

Like a plant, 
Our souls will wilt and wither away
If not given the proper nutrients.

So, I ask you, what are your goals?
What nutrients do you need?

To feed your mind,
To feed your soul,
To feed your ultimate well-being?
