No Comments


So very grateful to announce that our February Maui Mystic Yoga Teacher Immersion (200+ Hour Yoga Alliance Certification) is really coming together in a big and delightful way!

      For the first week of our retreat, we will be joined by Ann Averbach of Divinitree Yoga who will lead us each morning in her unique style, Gyspy Flow Yoga, and at a truly epic space here on Maui, Blue Mountain’s Sacred Earth Temple in Haiku.   Please read on for more about Ann and what she offers, and please register now to reserve your spot for that special first week.

    Want to also mention that I first met and had the blessed opportunity to attend Ann’s class at last year’s epic Mystic Island Festival ( here on Maui.   I loved it and know you will, too.

      And we’ll both be back at this year’s 7th Annual Mystic Island event, and what an amazing experience this will be!  Please check out the flyer below to see all of the brilliant artists, speakers, and other presenters who are showing up for this, wow!  Our yoga immersion is also officially a “Mystic Immersion” event as we are part of the Mystic tribe, and this will be the first Mystic Immersion we have offered.  We welcome any and all Mystic Island Festival family to join us!

logo-300x295DiviniTree and Yoga University collaborate to bring you the February Radiant Life Revolution in Paradise! An amazing week of yoga and transformation. Immerse yourself in community, yoga, chanting, and meditation. Come celebrate and gift yourself a week of rejuvenation. We will go deep, cleanse, heal, dance, and play!

Experience the magic and power of Gypsy Yoga Flow with Ann Averbach founder of Divinitree Yoga

Life is best lived savoring every breath and moment of the journey; the journey is the destination. Gypsy Flow Yoga is always fresh, surprising, and uplifting.

”I want to share the feeling that years of traveling freely gifted me, into my classes.”

Full of creative sequencing and inspiration, Gypsy Yoga is a physically challenging, yet deeply spiritual practice. We train our body temples to reach peak optimization so that we can harness more light, more love, more divinity. Gypsy Flow juxtaposes demanding aerobic sequences with juicy, fluid sequencing, with luscious moments of freedom where the practitioner can listen to their inner teacher. Interweaving positive visualization, affirmation work, pranayama, mantra, and meditation into the practice, gypsy yoga flow is truly a practice meant to journey into the depths of our inner light.

Note: I put together these resources to help those of us who have the intention of making a good residual income with SizzleZing.  What I have seen firsthand is that those who do put in the work do reap the benefits.  As a yoga professional with a yoga school, my intention with SizzleZing is to provide a better financial base for my yoga school offerings.  I do see network marketing as the wave of the future and definitely a great way to make some extra money in these challenging financial times.

That said, I also want to put a word in for what I feel is a deeper truth around money, namely that when we let go of fear around money and begin to see the whole monetary system (not to mention the System as a whole) as a vast game, then whether we have money or not, we will be content.  And when we change our attitude to one of Gratitude about everything, seeing everything through the lens of Love, then all abundance is already ours…

(Btw, the other day I had a realization about the name “SizzleZing,” which for many of our tribe doing this is a real turn off.  The realization gave me a little bit more of an appreciation for the name as it suddenly occurred to me that because there are 3 Zings (boards), it makes sense that the name SizzleZing also has 3 “Z”s in it.  Anyway, just a thought, and now for that info…)

Anatomy of a Successful Youtube Video

No Comments

Kind of celebrating, but not really…This video has now had 100,000 views and received about 450 likes with very few dislikes (always something to not like or be negative about!).  I’m not really celebrating, yet I am pleased that this little video, shot by my friend Ali Gardella with a HD camera in Costa Rica just a couple years ago, has now reached this milestone.  This was a very low budget project that probably took all of 2-3 hours in total to complete.  Which means you can do it, too!  This little blog post is just to briefly explain how…

First, choose a topic that is just becoming big.  In this case, I didn’t know it, but Dr. Oz was talking about the 5 Tibetans on his show, or maybe it was Oprah.  I knew a lot of people were already interested in the Five Tibetans, though.  Should be a topic that you can honestly bring some light to and feel good about it.  In my case, I had been doing the Five Tibetans for years, so it wasn’t too much of a stretch.

Second, choose a nice location and get your best shots!

Third, editing video is so easy these days. I can’t speak for PCs, but Macs make it really easy.  A good soundtrack definitely helps, too.

Fourth, after it’s uploaded to Youtube, tag it well, and then promote on as many social media networks as you can.

Fifth, if you want to earn some money from your video, Youtube allows you to monetize it.  Or, you can use your video to attract people to your website, FB page, and so on.

And that’s about it!  Most importantly, stop talking about doing it, just do it! : ) And have fun… Namasté _/\_





Yogi Zen & Urine Therapy…Fountain of Youth?

No Comments

Aloha!  Yogi Zen has finally arrived back on Maui after a long hiatus and he is sharing his amazing Yoga Swing (that he invented) with us all.  He is also sharing his wealth of knowledge and wisdom regarding yoga, the body, staying young and longevity.  This blog post is really just to highlight a couple of things: Urine therapy, a most likely ancient yoga practice (found in the 14th century yoga manual the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, for one), also found in a number of other cultures; and the Yoga Swing, particularly Yogi Zen’s latest model which I have now had the pleasure to experience myself (in the yoga space here on Maui where Yogi Zen originally created it).


 As far as the swing, all I can say is “wow!”  I agree with Yogi Zen that this is one of the next big things for yoga and for self-care and fitness in general.  I feel so strongly about it that I will be helping Zen to share his gift with the world, bringing it back with me to Naples, Florida, where I introduced Yogi Zen’s original parachute model of the swing a couple of years back.

Urine therapy is a tougher pill to swallow for many, especially in our culture. In another post, I will go into why it works in more detail.  For now, you can watch the National Geographic Taboo video above to get a little sense of what it’s all about.   Also, here’s one of Yogi Zen’s (aka, TarZen) most recent yoga swing video offerings…
