Pictured is a Loving Kindness Meditation led by Stefano Allegri, , an advanced yogi and martial artist. In the @moodsweater Stefano was surprised that even though he thought he would be calm – blue, leading the meditation he was excited – pink and red. He was reminded of his fiery past in Martial Arts that brought him to mediation as a tool for solice. Kristin, Sensoree founder, found herself pink – excited about loving a difficult situation. Her cousin was blue and said she felt surprisingly relaxed with her situation. Maybe it was not so potent.

It is true that we each have our own experiences and insights. Show how you feel and the universe responds with loving kindness. Namaste!

In 2014, The United Nations declared International Yoga Day on June 21 to provide the tools for self-transformation. The idea is that this technology of transformation does not belong to a guru or institution, but belongs to the person.

“(Yoga) is beyond religion; it is beyond your philosophies and ideologies. It is the technology for self-transformation.” – Sadhguru

Sensoree’s mission is to craft sensitive Sensoree tech to reconnect with the self. YogaTech to make awareness go viral.

Kristin Neidlinger, the founder of Sensoree, teaching the yogi about extimacy. It was a very special experience to be in Costa Rica and hear the waves from the Yoga studio at Flor Blanca.


The primary focus of the trip was to study the fundamentals of optimal performance  by taking a variety of lessons with various experts to find the common root.

First, we tried Stand Up Paddleboard with the Champion of Costa Rica, Edith Garcia. She instantly gave us her rules:

  1. Breathing, help the body to relax.
  2. Look straight ahead.
  3. The top arm, always straight
  4. Trust.
    Pura vida! = Costa Rican for pure life

Those rules were definitely successful. We ended up SUPing for hours until the sun went down.


Then, we found that our scuba instructor Miquel from Montezuma Crew and our yoga teacher also had very similar advice. Here is the collective advice for all three activities:

  1. Focus on the Breath
  2. Look straight ahead
  3. Keep your form
  4. Trust

In the scuba lesson, the instructor advised to look and listen to the bubbles from the exhale. This will help focus the mind and reduce anxiety. Then, everything is fine. After my dive, he said my face totally changed.

Stefano, the Yogi, had more insight into breathing techniques like the idea that you can inhale from your ears and 3 dimensionally in your ribcage. He also stated how breathe is personal with the goal to lengthen the inhale and the exhale. Finally, relaxing the face was integral.  Zen face, zen mind.

The takeaway was that all three experiences focused on the breath. The rhythm helps to put you in the flow state. Often when the sport pushes toward anxiety, one can focus the mind and breath to get back in to the optimal state.
