Friends, I am so honored and excited to announce that I will be teaching online yoga classes with Zenergy Boca Raton as part of their new Zenergy Go program starting on Monday, March 23, 2020. During this time of physical distancing during the COVID-19 coronavirus disease, taking good care of our bodies and our minds is more important than ever. I’m in the studio filming a class today, and will post the details of how and where to view them here and on my social media accounts. Stay tuned, and stay healthy!
In this video, I chat with David Black of Restore Hyper Wellness about the amazing services they provide, and their HydraFacial & CryoFacial event tomorrow night. I’ll be leading a meditation, so please come! See event details below.
David also talks about other upcoming events at Restore, including their 6-Month Anniversary Celebration and a new meditation series with my fellow lululemon ambassador, Pedro Luna. To learn more about Restore, visit https://restore.com/locations/boca-raton-fl/.
First, I just want to remind you of the importance of breathing. Using your breath is a way to center, to ground, to get really clear with our thoughts, with our emotions, with our energy. If you have not yet downloaded the app Insight Timer, I highly recommend that you do. It is something that was recommended to me on my last teacher training from one of my teachers, James. It’s really a great app with a lot of meditations on there for one minute, two minutes, meditations that you can do in the morning, at lunch time, or in the evening. But the pranayama is everything. Don’t hold your breath. Notice how you’re breathing, and keep it simple.
I also want to let you know about something happening next week. I am super excited that Barb and Michelle of Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life are bringing Rha Goddess to Boca Raton. This woman is so amazing and so inspiring. When I first learned about Rha, it was through my Spirit Junkie Master Class that I took last summer. This woman has so inspired me and elevated me, and she truly is such a gift. I feel like I manifested her to come to Boca because I thought how cool it would be if she came to Boca Raton. Then Michelle told me, I think a few months ago, you’re never going to believe who’s coming to Boca!
Rha is truly amazing, and no matter where you are in your life, I highly, highly recommend you go see Rha because she will help you. Sometimes in life we get stuck. We get stuck with the same patterns, we get stuck with making the same business decisions, and it’s so good to learn from someone or go to something to help us come out of the box. Something that we might have never thought of, looking at ourselves or something in business. She really inspired me so much this summer. She is a coach for Gabby Bernstein, and I am thrilled that she will be here with us. Rha will be here Thursday evening (March 5), at lunchtime on Friday (March 6) and Saturday morning (March 7).
I am so excited to also let you know that I am going to be giving somebody a three-day experience with Rha! All you need to do is send me what you’ve been working on for 2020. What are your dreams, what big goals are you working on, and where are you at? And you may win this three-day with Rha!
I am about helping you elevate on all levels, and that’s why I love yoga and meditation so much. You know, we’re only human and we get stopped, and it’s so important to always take a look at where we are in our lives and how we’re showing up, what thoughts do we have. It’s such a beautiful journey, and it’s work though. It’s a way to help us always expand, always take a look at where we need to grow, or maybe something that we haven’t addressed in our life. I am thrilled and beyond excited, and in so much gratitude for Michelle and Barb for bringing Rha to our community. If you have not signed up, I highly highly highly recommend that you do because tickets will go fast. If you have any questions, let me know. And if you would like to enter to win a three-day experience with Rha, please send me what you’re working on for 2020. I can’t wait to see it!
I love you guys. Stay mindful, stay happy. Let go of things that don’t serve you, and remember you guys are all amazing. And you have an opportunity to elevate everywhere in your life. It’s the choices that we make, it’s what we decide, and it’s the work that we do. I love you guys, have a beautiful Wednesday.
Namaste, peace out.

Join Mary Ann and the Restore Hyper Wellness team for an evening of mindfulness, meditation, and hyper wellness. Free event!
Happy Wednesday, and welcome back to Wednesday Wisdom. So I wanted to mention to you about tomorrow evening at Restore Boca Raton which is located on Saint Andrews Boulevard. It’s going to be an evening about mindfulness. We’re going to talk about meditation, hyper wellness, and other things that we can do to help us with stress, to help us with our well-being, our health. This is so important because stress can take over, so we’ll be going through so many different things that you can add to help you with stress, to help you manage stress.
What brought me to yoga was stress. I went to my doctor because I had major major anxiety, major TMJ, and he said “You have two choices: you can either take an antidepressant, or you can start yoga.” So, you guys know what happened when he said that! But really, it’s a beautiful journey. And it’s not about being perfect. Yoga and meditation meets you exactly where you are.
We hope to see you tomorrow night. If you have any questions please send me a message. Everyone is welcome. Sending you so much love wherever you are. Namaste, Peace Out!
So today I just wanted to talk about the importance of manifestation. Manifestation is where our dreams and our visions happen, and the first step to manifestation is to take a look at your thoughts, take a look at your patterns. What do you continue to think about? What do you continue to work towards? Is it in line with what your intention is?
And the second thing is our intention. Our intention is everything, in the way we begin our day, and living that intention throughout your day, from the choices that you make in your life and for business.
The third is your actions, and that’s something that Ellen DeGeneres said on Saturday. Your actions behind your intention is everything, and taking action even with the unknown. And I know for myself it’s like we want to know now, before we take that next step. So really trusting and working towards what your intention is. And if you created an intention for 2020 maybe take a look at it and change your intention.
We are always evolving, we’re always expanding, and that’s something that Ellen said on Saturday. And really what she said was, to stay in our truth. And that’s something in yoga called Satya: What is your truth? Is it kind? Is it true? Is it necessary? Continue to look at what your truth is. Because if we make choices based on old patterns and fears of doubt and feeling that we can’t do that. Yes, you can. Trust it, believe it, pray about it, meditate. Because it is there for you and taking actions towards your intention will help you, will guide you.
Yesterday I was speaking… I was on a conference call regarding football. And it was something that I wanted to create, that I’ve been wanting to do. And how beautiful, and how amazing that I see Dan Marino after this phone call. I just felt like it was the universe because there’s something that I so believe and that I want to create. (PHOTO: Mary Ann with Dan Marino at lululemon Boca Raton.)
I encourage all of you to always believe, and really drop the doubt, drop the fears that you have, because it’s only going to hold you back. And somebody else will create whatever it is that you want to create. So drop those fears, and believe and trust.
You guys are amazing, have a beautiful day! Namaste.
Hey guys, happy Wednesday and welcome back to Wednesday Wisdom. I am so excited to be in this amazing space, Restore Boca Raton, which you are going to hear about in just a few minutes. I just wanted to answer some questions that everybody had about mindful practices. You know, mindful practices is something that you do in the morning, something that you do at night, and one of the things that I wanted to mention is about meditation beads. This is for men and women, it’s a beautiful way to sit and meditate. I am honored to collaborate with Kema Earth. Her intention and the energy that she creates in the beads is so healing and so amazing. So I just wanted to mention, as a reminder about our mindful practices, and using the meditation beads is a great way to help you with meditation. And it’s a great way to just unplug and tune in, and just breathe guys and keep it really simple.
Now I want you to hear about Restore Boca and how amazing it is. It is a Hyper Wellness and it’s a great place to come and just take that time to unplug. I love the space because there’s so many things that you can do, and depending on your time, you can stay here all afternoon. It’s one of my favorite places in Boca Raton.
Mary Ann: “So (speaking to David Black) tell us about but you have and what people can expect.”
David Black: “Absolutely. So here at Hyper Wellness, we have whole bunch of different recovery and regenerative services for the body. Two of my personal favorites are our IV Therapy and our Stretch Therapy. With our IV Therapy we can do micronutrient testing to find out what you might be deficient in and supply you with that. With our Stretch Therapy, we can actually help you improve your mobility… things we know that are very important to prevent injury and to help us recover from injuries as well. We have a whole bunch of different With our stretch therapy we can actually help improve your mobility, your stability things we know that are very important with helping to prevent injury and to help us recover from injury as well. a whole bunch of different other services, from cryotherapy, compression therapy, and infrared sauna.”
Mary Ann: “The infrared sauna, I can’t wait to try! I know my friend Candice always raves about doing it and there’s so many great benefits to it. It’s so amazing, this space, if you haven’t, come by. It’s right next to the Watch, First Watch restaurant. I love it because they really cater to what you’re looking for and how much time you have. I love the stretching part, I love the Cryo Freeze. And I think that if you have not been, you should definitely check it out. This is another way to take care of yourself, for your health, for your wellness, and there’s so many options. If you have any questions, you can find them (Restore Hyper Wellness) on Instagram and also Facebook. It’s a really beautiful space I love it and we are there any business
David Black: “We are a very new business, and this is a new business model, so we are very interested in getting everybody to come in and touch/see/feel exactly what we do, because it’s so much more powerful when you can come in and see for yourself all the things we have to offer. Don’t just take my word for it, please come, in please come see what we have and learn all about our modalities because there’s so much behind it that you might not know about already.
Mary Ann: “Awesome. I know the lululemon girls were here yesterday, and they loved it. So I would highly recommend for you to check it out.”
This Sunday I will be teaching with many beautiful teachers at Parkland Yoga For Life. I will be posting about it. It will be at Coral Springs Gymnasium and that’s going to be from 4 to 7 o’clock. And also this Saturday, I’m excited and honored to be with all the lululemon ambassadors. They will be placing our new photos up in the store at 10:30 this Saturday, so I’m super excited.
Remember to take that time to close your eyes, connect to your breath, tune in and listen, and trust. Three things I highly recommend. It’s something that will help us to live more mindful, more healthy, and really connecting to our intuition and trusting. Those two things, and, don’t be so hard on yourself because you guys are amazing and I’m always inspired by your work on the mat, your work in your life, so many new things that you’re creating to be happy and to live from inspirations, staying inspired. I love you guys, have the most amazing day. Peace out, namaste.
Hi guys, happy Wednesday and welcome back to Wednesday Wisdom. So today I just wanted to remind you of the importance of stillness and taking time to write out your mindful practices. Everyone is different, everyone has a different ritual, a different practice. And no matter if you practice yoga, that you’re an entrepreneur, it’s really important to carve out that time that is going to help you in what you’re doing.
You know life gets so busy and we have so many tabs open, we have so many things that we are thinking about that we want to create. It’s a new year, it’s an opportunity to create a new vision for your business, for yourself, and making sure that you take that time to write out what you working towards, and what your mindful practice looks like. Everyone is different and having a yoga and meditation practice is a way to help balance our energy, it helps us to get clear about what we really want. It’s hard to get clear and it’s hard to tap into your intuition when we have so many tabs open so I highly recommend, today, write out what is your mindful practice? How are you getting still? How are you incorporating that in your day? How do you unplug at the end of the day? Do you stay on social media, or go through your emails until you pass out at night?
It’s important that we take that time at the end of the day to close out our day, and to really breathe, to center yourself even before going to bed. Something I learned from Dr. Wayne Dyer so long ago, was whatever thoughts you’re thinking about before you go to sleep, that energy, that vibration, is with you as you’re sleeping. So it’s important to clear away the day, to clear away your thoughts, and maybe there’s something that was upsetting during the day, and take time to work through that energy because it’s only going to help you energetically. It’s only going to help you tap into your intuition more. So really take time today and write out what your mindful practices look like.
Mary Ann: “I love you guys and I just wanted to let you know I’m so honored to be in the space today of this new concept that Salvatore Principe has created and actually is coming here!”
Salvatore: “Look who’s here! My Mary Ann!”
Mary Ann: “Here we are, live in person, and do you want to tell them about what you’re going to be doing here with live artists?”
Salvatore: “Yeah, we built a gallery in Boca Town Center, first of its kind, and it’s going to be a live gallery where we have musical artists coming in, several artists painting or sculpting during the day and evenings. It’s a chance to actually meet the artists and find out what’s really behind a work of art. And the experience is inviting, and we have outside Prosperity Brewers and wine, and it’s definitely something to come and see.”
Mary Ann: Yes, I love it! I mean, the artwork is so beautiful. I don’t know if you can see behind me, the big beautiful heart. It’s really amazing…”
Salvatore: “Here’s the big, beautiful heart, it’s right here!” (pointing to Mary Ann).
Anyway, guys, check it out. It’s such a beautiful space and remember to write out your mindful practices. It can be two minutes, it can be three minutes. Tell me what it is that you’re creating, what practices are going to be important to you. Because sometimes we share with our friends, or we just send a message like “This is what I’m going to be doing to help me stay centered. These are my practices, these are my rituals.” It can be really simple. It can be reading something spiritual, something that is important to you so that way you can incorporate it in your life everyday. I so believe in yamas and niyamas, which are the first two principles of yoga. But it’s our thoughts, how we show up every day for ourselves, how we show up in our community and in our world. Those are really important because it begins with our mind, it begins with our thoughts and how we are processing those thoughts. So I highly, highly recommend taking the Yoga Sutras. That is the core to yoga. It’s not so much about the poses, but how me move through those poses. And that’s when the shift happens, that’s when the healing happens. So if you haven’t read about the Yoga Sutras, I highly recommend it.
Have the most amazing day, I love you guys!
