Three & 4th

The hubbs and I have been married for three years today, which happens to also be the 4th of July. Our wedding was in a tiny little town in the north-east corner of Oregon, Heppner (about an hours drive from Pendleton), on my mother and stepfather’s ranch. Our guests were welcomed from near and far by the only motel in town with a very memorable wedding day tribute: “CongraDulations Joyner & Yksrozay” which was almost the correct spelling of Yavorsky if you read it backwards…

This set the tone for an amazing weekend full of Pacific Northwest Brew from Rogue Ales, sinfully delicious homemade pies by none other than my gorgeous mother, a flat-bed trailer for our live band, A New Groove, and seemingly endless deep black skies full of twinkling stars to light our guests way as they drunkenly climbed the towering stacks of hay-bails after a long evening of dancing and debauchery. I am happy to say that there was only one questionable incident with firecrackers, and thanks to the party busses we hired to drive our guests, everyone made it safely home.

Here’s to another magical 4th of July filled with family, friends, loved ones and a whole lot of fire works! May each of us dance under a blanket of stars with the ones we love…thanks to all those who serve to make these moments a reality. Happy Independence Day!

About Caley Alyssa

As a D-1 collegiate athlete with a background in nutrition and anatomy, and an internship with a naturopathic center for healing, I found myself wanting to help people achieve healthier, happier lives. I quickly came to realize that I wanted to work with preventative therapeutic methods promoting active, energetic lifestyles rather then focusing on treatment centered around prescription drugs and the increasingly paramount “band-aid” mindset. In 2006, I moved to San Francisco and began to study yoga completing a 200 hour training with Yoga Tree. From there I've studied with Shiva Rea and obtained a certification to work with children and at risk youth. In 2010, my quest to bring health and happiness to others lead me to enroll with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York to become a holistic health coach. Currently, I live in LA and am training with Dharma Mittra to obtain my 500 hour yoga certification. I love to share my lifelong journey of finding balance, wellness and happiness in all aspects of life!
