This lovely lady or bella donna @aleisha.victoria.smith came on the on point podcast to chat about life, rome & yoga. She shares some golden goddess wisdom so tune into ep.27.
We met in Rome at Zem Studio where she thought yoga back in her Roman days. Leish shares more stories on the pod. She also shares this bellissima poem from her zoom yogaclass with us:
Bless my mother for I am your daughter
Bless my eyes that I may see you in all things
Bless my ears that I may hear your song in all of nature
Bless my nose that I might smell your sweetness
Bless my lips that I may sing your praises
Bless my throat that I may speak my truth
Bless my breasts formed in strength and beauty
Bless my womb, the center of my creativity
Bless my knees that I remember humbleness
Bless my feet that I may walk my own true path
Bless my hands that I may create beauty
Harmony and healing in all I touch
- place your arms over head then shower whole body
as you say there is no part of me that is not of the goddess
Me in goddess pose in Rome. Livin' la vita bella.
We also mention some Italian films
so you can travel with us visually
La dolce vita by Fellini
with Italian actor Marcello Mastroianni
and Swedish actress Anita Ekberg
Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
and Leish'es fave Eighteen In The Sun.
We both LOVE the famous traditional Roman Calcio and Pepe yummmmm....
