Saffron and Sage near my place totally has my decor aesthetic. I can also be found sniffing candles like a hobo because their candles smells amazing!!! #SaffronandSage #designaesthetics #minimalist #minimalism #blackandwhite
Restorative yoga is so healing, not only for the body, but for the mind too. Join me tonight @saffronandsageus for restorative yoga at 7:30pm. Your first class is free and we will have yummy tea brewed and essential oils from @doterra to compliment your practice. I can also promise we’ll do this pose at some point during class!

Some of us are anxious about time management. We want to spend time as effectively as we can. Each second counts. It is important to us to squeeze all the value from each minute.⠀
⠀
We may not be able to save time, but it is possible to spend it and invest it well. ⠀

Many people feel frustrated that there is nothing they can do to help those who are in pain right now. There is something you can do. You can commit to practicing compassion and keep all who are grieving in your prayers.⠀
⠀
It’s normal to experience intense emotions during a time like this, anger, fear, grief, and sadness. Feeling any number of these emotions is a sign your heart is already open and a teaching in staying open through the loss we’re all feeling today.⠀
⠀
From an energy perspective you have two choices, allow this terrible tragedy to shut you off or use it as a practice in staying open. When you shut down your vibration is lowered and it’s very challenging to access love, compassion, and wisdom. By staying open your vibration is raised and you tap into creativity, empathy, and intuition. In times like these everyone needs as much empathy, love and wisdom as possible. If you have the willingness to offer it you are doing a huge part to support the world.⠀

Yin Yoga promotes stillness in the body and mind. Yin yoga focuses on the joints and the connective tissue called facia. It is a great compliment to more rigorous forms of exercise as it opens the body and stimulates our connective tissue. ⠀
⠀
Yin Yoga is composed of all seated or reclined poses that are held for longer periods of time. Yin Yoga will challenge the mind to remain present while physically and mentally releasing tension. ⠀
⠀
Expect to leave this class relaxed and renewed with a sense of calm energy. ⠀
⠀
Yin Yoga 7:30-8:30am Monday-Friday⠀
⠀
First time students receive their first yoga class FREE.⠀
We would also like to offer our yoga students a special of 2 weeks for $40.
And for the month of December you can purchase a SAGE studio membership for only $100/month (regularly $150)!

Day 5 of #7DaysofSelfCareChallenge: Journal Entry
.
Again, I know..... totally out of order, but finally finishing up the last day of this #challenge  I do understand the importance of journaling, but I also think it’s an important reminder in the age of social media to remember not EVERY thought needs to be publicly broadcast. Unfortunately for some of us old enough to realize that, we are reminded on other platforms what pointless and embarrassingly random thought may have crossed our mind on this day 7 years ago. Take time to be in the moment, and remember some things are better off in a journal 📓 then they are broadcast to the world. .

"Sometimes it's the simplest things that bring an abundance of pleasure. For me lately, this has been my cozy bowl of sprouted oatmeal in the morning. After being on an anti-inflammatory autoimmune protocol for the past six months, as soon as the season changed, my body started craving oatmeal. Something that I haven't eaten in years. And it's been incredible re-introducing it. So nourishing, blood sugar stabilizing, and it gives me energy for hours! I really can't tell you how this basic bowl brings me so much ritual and joy each morning. I slowly make it in my morning cozy sweater, with mantras playing. I look forward to this ritual every morning!"⠀

Over the last 5 years, I spent a lot of time in the restaurant industry learning about wine & food. This last year, I completed my level 1 sommelier certification, and really started to dive deeper into what makes a good wine. Last week, I spent some time in #ValleDeGuadalupe going wine tasting and eating delicious food! It’s awesome to see the wine industry beginning to bloom in Mexico! This photo is from one of the wineries there. Check out my story for more on how I’m indulging TODAY!

"Let's get into maintaining self-confidence during the calmer, lower times in the peaks and valleys we experience in life. As I'm a workaholic, much of my validation comes from creating something and putting it into the world. Then watching what incredible things show up in return. However, when we are meant to go inward, or our focus is to calmly "savor the moment", I can get quite jumbled. Slower times can truly knock me off my rock of confidence, which then runs the possibility of flowing any way the the wind blows. Or similarly, if I'm simply ungrounded and have disconnected from myself, I need an extra anchor to ground back into my confidence. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
It's one thing to tell everyone that confidence is the most beautifying trait one can have. It's another to live and experience that. When I'm confident, I radiate. So much so that it doesn't matter what I wear, look like, or do. Self-confidence is also THE magnetic trait of Manifestation (in one's power). Not contrived confidence. But true, connected confidence. And for this I like to anchor into it always".⠀⠀

Day 6 of #7DaysOfSacredSelfCare
.
Cooking is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I love to try new flavor combinations and create interesting meals - but this week has been a different story- I’ve been battling food poisoning since a trip to Mexico last week and haven’t been able to eat much at all. It’s been so frustrating because food is one of my favorite things. Today, all I’ve eaten is toast with peanut butter (my favorite food!) and some rice. It’s not much to take a photo of so I used this picture of Zoë and I at Sunset Cliffs for today. I’ve been going at my illness with all of the natural remedies I can think of - including my digest zen and on guard oils from DoTerra! If you’re looking for good recipes check out @minimalistbaker she is my favorite and my go-to resource every time I want to try something new in the kitchen!

Meet Kendall!⠀
⠀
Kendall grew up in the Pacific North West and moved to San Diego in the Spring of 2016 where she settled in to teach yoga. Her passion for yoga comes from a desire to help others slow down and connect with their bodies on a deeper level. For Kendall, yoga provided relief from chronic anxiety. With regular practice she was able to cultivate a more positive lifestyle. Now she enjoys sharing the tools she learned with others in hopes of helping them relieve the stress and anxieties in their own lives.⠀
⠀
At Saffron & Sage you will find Kendall teaching Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga. She creates a welcoming, safe space, filled with feel-good adjustments and encouragement. Kendall’s intention is to show students the power and strength that resides within their own bodies and minds. She uses essential oils to enhance the experience and strives to leave students in a state of bliss at the end of each class. When Kendall isn’t in the yoga studio you can find her out rock climbing or in the kitchen making her favorite treats. ⠀

Pain management has always been a difficult issue for me. I’ve been very fortunate to have amazing teachers in my life that have taught me some meditation and relaxation skills that assist in some of those extremely difficult moments. At times I’ve had a very strong daily practice, this #yogachallenge is the perfect reminder to try to get back into that. #grateful .

“As we fully embrace fall and slowly shift into winter we need to step up our self care routine especially around down time and sleep. Winter was definitely made for me, but I still have to pay extra close attention to my body and make sure I don’t over schedule myself. Because I tend to have more energy this time of year and get excited about holiday gatherings, it can be easy to run myself into the ground. For years I would get crazy sick around Christmas and I finally figured out that I need to channel my energy into creative projects around the house and not burn the candle and both ends.⠀
⠀
In addition to bringing more awareness to grounding my energy I’ve found that taking natural remedies consistently this time of year makes a huge difference in my overall health and wellness".⠀

Day 4 of #7DaysOfSacredSelfCare - Meditation.
.
I’ve always had a very active mind so traditional seated meditation is a challenge for me. If I am in a guided meditation or a teacher is facilitating the time, I love it, but if I’m on my own it’s really challenging! Last year, I went to a Buddhist monastery and experienced walking meditation for the first time and finally found something that works for me. At the monastery we took a silent hike. My senses felt elevated. The texture of the ground became apparent, the smells more pronounced and my eyes began to notice more of the subtle details around me. Then, eventually, I was able to get in the zone and let everything drift away. Like in yoga, the sound of my breath and the rhythmic crunch of my feet against the earth took over. It was beautiful. Next time you walk alone try to tune into a meditative state. You can do it anywhere - in nature or the city! It’s a wonderful way to clear the mind. 🙏🏼

There are so many simple little ways you can take care of your body from the comfort of your home - comment below with one of your favorite ways! There’s still time to join the challenge too!

Yoga is even better with a friend!
.
Day 2 of #7DaysofSacredSelfCare!
.
One of my favorite things about yoga is that it meets you wherever you are. On days I want a challenge and a good sweat I take heated classes, but on days like today where I am feeling a little sick, I can do yin yoga and deep stretches from the comfort of my home. Check out my story later today for some simple poses to start your day. Even if you don’t have the energy for a full on work out there is a lot you can do to stay active and keep your body moving. Being stagnant is not an option for me anymore. I’m happiest when I’m moving my body and challenging myself!

Yoga is even better with a friend! . Day 2 of #7DaysofSacredSelfCare ! . One of my favorite things about yoga is that it meets you wherever you are. On days I want a challenge and a good sweat I take heated classes, but on days like today where I am feeling a little sick, I can do yin yoga and deep stretches from the comfort of my home. Check out my story later today for some simple poses to start your day. Even if you don’t have the energy for a full on work out there is a lot you can do to stay active and keep your body moving. Being stagnant is not an option for me anymore. I’m happiest when I’m moving my body and challenging myself! .

Today’s the day! Day 1 of #7DaysofSacredSelfCare!
.
Today’s challenge is a date with nature. One of my favorite places to go in San Diego is Sunset Cliffs. Walking along the paths or hiking down to the tide pools or secret beaches is always a good time. On days like today when the sun is out and the sky is clear there’s no where better to be! I moved to San Diego with the intention to get outside as much as possible and so far it’s been a wonderful adventure. Nature is so healing and restorative. When I am feeling under the weather some fresh air is the best cure! I’m grateful to live in such a beautiful city!

Acupuncture is a holistic health technique that stems from Traditional Chinese Medicine practices in which trained practitioners stimulate specific points on the body by inserting thin needles into the skin. ⠀
⠀
Because the goal of acupuncture is to promote and restore the balance of energy, which flows throughout the body, the benefits of acupuncture can extend to a wide variety of conditions, from headaches to emotional disorders, digestive complaints, pain syndromes, neurological problems, respiratory conditions, gynecologic disorders and infertility, and can even improve fatigue and addictions. ⠀
⠀
Acupuncture aids in promoting overall well-being. ⠀

DWELL| Full Moon Circle⠀
⠀
December 2, 2017 ⠀
⠀
The full moon marks the end of a chapter. It invites us to let go of that which we have outgrown or no longer need by shedding light on the people or projects, beliefs or feelings that are interfering with our spiritual development.⠀
⠀
During our Full Moon Circle we will gather together to participate in a heart-opening tea ceremony to release these things - whether they be relationships, grudges, anger, addictions, etc. Together we will take advantage of the powerful and intense full moon energy that enables us to let go and support it with touch energy healing work.⠀
⠀
Join us in our space in Mission Hills for an evening of emotional, physical and spiritual release. Take your healing practice to the next level by releasing that which no longer serves you through movement, visualization and energy work. ⠀
⠀
Link in bio. ⠀
Class will begin promptly at 7:30PM ⠀
Please arrive early for parking and check-in⠀
Participants are encouraged to bring a journal and writing tool⠀

Eating your greens is an extra powerful practice during Autumn. They are especially helpful because of their chlorophyll content, which inhibits viruses and helps lungs discharge residues that emerge from dust and toxic fumes like cigarette smoke, city smog, and other harsh chemicals. ⠀
⠀
Try incorporating some seasonal greens this week such as Brussels sprouts and cabbage.

"Many of us step foot on the path to spiritual enlightenment expecting it to lead us onward and upward, hoping to become something better than we are, and ready to gather all of the important things we need along the way. ⠀
⠀
What a surprise it is when we eventually realize that this path isn't taking us onward but inward, that we're not gathering things so much as letting them go, and that there was never anything more to aspire to than the truth of what we already are".⠀
- Cristen Rodgers⠀
⠀
Spiritual Direction is a therapeutic space where we honor the spiritual season we are in. We learn to sit in the tension of the complexities of life and embrace rituals to support our journey inward. ⠀

It has been an introspective month. A lot to reflect on and process. It can be a challenge to hold space for others in my classes and still make time to process my own stuff too. In the last few months I’ve changed jobs, left an unhealthy long-term relationship, my grandfather passed away and now a friend has passed away as well. Instagram shows you my travels and happy moments but there is more happening behind the lens. As I reflect on the fragility of life I feel truly lucky to be here. To follow my passions, to enjoy nature, to breathe each breath with gratitude for the moment. We never know when our time will come so let’s vow to make the most of each precious moment we have. Take time to take care of yourself today. Call a loved one. Make someone smile. Treat others with kindness and respect, ALWAYS. You never know what is going on within them. Life is beautiful - enjoy each moment you are given and take nothing for granted.

Massage Therapy is a form of body work in which different touch techniques are applied to provide relaxation and restoration. 
Depending on your physical, emotional, or spiritual state you can select from a variety of massage modalities to support you. 
Acupressure applies pressure to the meridian system that corresponds to areas of pain or tension held in the body to provide relief. 
Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle treatment that encourages detoxification by moving our lymph fluid, decreasing inflammation, improving lymphatic circulation, and releasing toxins. 
Reflexology involves the application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort and relieves symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. 
Learn more about all our massage offerings or book a session today on our website or by stopping by our space.

Detox is a word that’s used on the regular these days. We know the reality of toxic buildup in our bodies, that it’s not good for us and that it needs to get out. Toxins build up because our bodies don’t know how to absorb + assimilate these foreign ingredients, so they continue to circulate, putting strain on our bodies, rather than becoming food and nourishment for our cells.⠀
⠀
Believe it or not, conventional beauty + body products can actually be one of the biggest contributors to our toxic load.⠀
⠀
There are countless pollutants in our environment that we can’t control, so it’s important to be conscious of the choices we can make and to avoid contributing to the toxic buildup in our bodies – with what we put on our plates and apply to our skin. Our bodies can handle occasional chemicals but when exposed consistently and daily, disease and health conditions are more likely to occur.⠀

DWELL | New Moon Circle⠀
⠀
November 17th⠀
⠀
The moon, being the closest astronomical body to Earth, has a profound effect on us. It represents the feminine, emotional, creative, and nurturing aspects of our lives. During the new moon the sun and moon are in alignment. The sun's light illuminates the moon hiding it from our view. ⠀
⠀
The magic of the new moon is that it represents beginning. It's a great time to begin new projects, initiate important conversations, plant seeds, and set intentions. The new moon generates negative ions elevating our mood and inspiring our desire to begin new things and manifest outward change. ⠀
⠀
Join us this Friday where we will gather to identify our desires and set intentions. Together we will take advantage of the powerful new moon energy to claim our dreams and chart our course. We will embrace our new beginnings through movement, visualization, and sound healing. ⠀

Spiritual life is larger than we are. We find it intimidating, even overwhelming, that we cannot see all of spiritual life at once. It is more than what our senses, even our common sense, can grasp.⠀
⠀
Spiritual life is beyond our understanding and our control.⠀
⠀
Each of us experiences spiritual life within our own context. Our experiences, opinions, thoughts, and ideas provide a framework for our perspectives.⠀
⠀
Spiritual life does not spring up for us brand new without context. Each contact we have had with spiritual life throughout our lives shapes the way we understand it. The challenge for us is to recognize and appreciate our own context.⠀
⠀

Dr. Marlene Ehrler, ND is a Naturopathic Doctor who specializes in women’s health, particularly preconception through postpartum wellness. Dr. Ehrler received her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University-California, the nation’s top institution for alternative medicine, and additional certification at the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy in Montréal, QC. She also holds additional professional certifications in Maternal Mental Health, and is passionate about working with mothers suffering from mood disorders. ⠀

After experiencing significant challenges herself, Dr. Ehrler created a new process for her patients where she invites authenticity, unbiased education, sacredness and empowerment to lay the groundwork for a strong and healthy transition from maiden to mother.⠀
⠀
Dr. Ehrler’s ultimate goal is for her patients to feel empowered, healthy, and radiant. She accomplishes this with her patients through functional medicine, homeopathic prescriptions, botanical medicine, nutritional counseling, nutraceutical recommendations, hydrotherapy, sleep hygiene, and other modalities. ⠀

Moon mapping is more than balancing your menstrual flow. Join Dr. Marlene Ehrler as we explore this potent information and how it can be used to design your life in a way that supports your personal phases and flow, leading to a more dynamic and balanced existence. ⠀

GREATER DEPTHS⠀
⠀
Are we ready to answer to the call to explore the greater depths?⠀
⠀
The challenges of going deeper may intimidate us. Greater depths could cause us to lose control, to go beyond where we are comfortable. There are things in the deeper waters we do not want to face directly. Are we strong enough or well enough prepared?⠀
⠀
Standing on the shore we cannot see where exploring the greater depths will take us. What will happen if they lead us further than we can handle?⠀
⠀
What is it about greater depths which makes us fear going further?⠀
⠀
Read more about preparing for greater depths, where to find them, and how to go beyond the shallows up on our blog now where Greg Richardson navigates this idea.⠀

Mental Health Days⠀
⠀
"These days are when I take all obligations and throw them to the wind. ⠀
⠀
On these days I ONLY listen to what my body, heart, and soul needs. What they are asking for and being unapologetic about doing them. From bed to books to actions - whatever! I honor my intuition by following all needs and pings as to heighten and activate them. ⠀
⠀
Most of all, I honor that during these times, I'm going through a major transformation".⠀

Cristin completed her training in The Art of Spiritual Direction from Loyola Marymount University in the Summer of 2016. ⠀ ⠀ Cristin invites those she journeys with to explore ancient practices like prayer and meditation by taking a mind-body approach to spirituality, developing a deeper awareness of and commitment to their true selves. ⠀ ⠀ Cristin supports clients from all faith traditions empowering them to develop a posture of discernment while becoming more in tune to the seasons of spirituality; particularly the more difficult seasons of life that bring about pain, developing a theology of suffering and exploring the transformation that emerges as a result.⠀ ⠀ Book a complimentary consultation with Cristin for a personalized recommendation of the next steps to take in your wellness journey. ⠀

Workshop Announcement || Moon Cycle Mapping || 11.15.17
.
As women, we have a very intimate relationship with the moon and it's lunar powers whether we are aware of it or not. It can effect our menstrual cycles, our mood, our emotions, and much more. Curious how you can harness the power of the moon to create a deeper understanding and relationship with yourself?
.
When we begin moon mapping, we venture deep into the ancient rhythms of the moon and begin a journey within ourselves. We begin to awaken and understand our personal lunar rhythm, and uncoil our powerful womb wisdom from within.
.

In this workshop, you will learn how to chart your personal lunar + menstrual cycle and unveil your unique lunar rhythm as a gateway to cultivating a deeper and more empowered relationship with your body.
.

After practicing moon mapping you will begin to see patterns that perhaps you were never aware of—mental, physical, emotional, sexual, and intuitive—informing you of how to attune to your fertility and anchor yourself in the rhythm of your feminine power.
.

Moon mapping is more than balancing your menstrual flow. Join me as we explore this potent information and how it can be used to design your life in a way that supports your personal phases and flow, leading to a more dynamic and balanced existence.
.

Meet Rob, an Integrative Healer, specializing in reiki, yoga + movement, aromatherapy, and sound. With a childhood saturated in an abundance of palm readers, herbalists, and holistic practitioners, he carries on his family's lineage of intuition and divine wellness.⠀
⠀
After graduating from UC San Diego with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications, he worked as a fashion photoshoot producer in NYC. He later surrendered to his need for personal health after episodes of anxiety-induced syncope and left the city. The experience manifested a three month healing pilgrimage throughout South-East Asia, where he reunited with his childhood roots while meeting family in Vietnam and unlocking the kundalini spirit in Bali.⠀
⠀
Rob currently resides in San Diego and is passionate about cultivating balance among the layers of being (from the physical realm to the inner spirit). When he is not facilitating healing circles and teaching yoga, you can find him flower foraging and relaxing at nude beaches.

Ambiguous situations are when we need to take initiative and communicate effectively.⠀
⠀
Ambiguity can make us uncomfortable. We appreciate people who are clear and straight forward, and do not trust too much complexity.⠀
⠀
It is more comfortable for us when we think we know where we stand. Ambiguity seems to be full of opportunities for misunderstanding and confusion.⠀
⠀
When things get too complicated they feel ambiguous, more difficult to nail down. It is a challenge for us to get a good handle on vague, indistinct ideas. We like to have a place for everything and everything in its place, especially when we are leading.⠀
⠀
We tend to see people, and situations, which are ambiguous as potential problems.⠀
⠀
Many of us experience ambiguity as the enemy of leadership.⠀
⠀
It is almost as if we would prefer people to march together rather than dancing.⠀
⠀

Fall is here! The long, hot days of Summer are gone, and the mornings are darker a bit longer, and a touch cooler.⠀
⠀
You may feel a surge of energy during this time of year, as the blaring heat of Summer has taken its toll on our bodies. The fatigue felt in the heat is beginning to subside, and the cool, dewy Fall mornings feel refreshing and reflective.⠀
⠀
Those hot teas and mochas are sounding better and better as each new day rises. And as with any change in seasons, it is time to get ourselves ready, especially since Fall is the entryway into Winter. ⠀
⠀
The Garden⠀
There are several colder-weather crops you can plant, and when your at the farmers market look for kale, arugula, spinach, and Swiss chard at the farmers markets, as well as dark orange and green vegetables.⠀
⠀
The Wild⠀
Animals are extremely in tune with the seasons. from higher elevations. It is a perfect time to hike through the forest or local nature reserve, just to watch the energy flit and fly around you. Spending some time in Nature during Fall will give you an energy boost as well.⠀
⠀
The Spirit⠀
Fall can bring to the surface some reflection time for which you may not be prepared. Grief, mourning, and forgiveness are important emotions to deal with during this season. Increase your activity—take a yoga class, go for a light jog, or take the dog for a hike— Fall is a time to let go before the quiet calm of Winter is here. ⠀
⠀
Take care of yourself this Fall, and embrace all this season has to offer.⠀
