Mothers Into Living Fit June Newsletter

Mother’s Into Living Fit // June Newsletter

Summertime and the living is easy! This summer is a great time to slow down a little bit. As a working mom with two active boys, hitting the pause button can sometimes be more challenging than going full steam ahead. This summer I am excited to find moments of connection, fun, rest, and relaxation and have some easy tips to share with you for recharging.


10 years ago I modeled with my older son Cruz for the cover of LA Yoga magazine. The editor, Felicia Tomasko is an inspiration to me as a friend and entrepreneur. I am delighted to see that 10 years later, almost to the day, the magazine has used an image of me at the beach for the cover. Now that I am a mother of 2, there is a sweet story about my boys and the happy heart found in a family yoga practice.

Many of you have sent direct messages and texts to ask where you can purchase the round mat that was on both Fox and ABC. I teamed up with my friends at manduka and the round at is called the eko equa round mat and comes in two colors, Luna night and Luna sunrise. Click here to get your own and create a beautiful sacred space in your home or office. The mat is made of natural rubber with a microfiber top, so it is safe for you and your baby [and fur babies 🙂 ].

Recently I had the joy of teaching sunrise Yoga for the We All Grow Latina Summit in Long Beach. I was incredibly inspired by the beautiful and amazing women that attended, including the Summit’s organizer, Ana Flores, as she interviewed Oscar nominated Yalitza Aparicio..


Seva is the Sanskrit word for Community Service. This last month I had the pleasure of attending a graduation ceremony for inner city Latinas who had the opportunity to work with an amazing company called Feast for All. I am inspired by their mission to “promote wellness and enrich lives through the power of healthy foods and human connection.” If you are called to support this cause with time or resources, I encourage you to log onto, I look forward to teaching yoga for their community soon.


With Love, Desi

P.S. Wishing you days full of fun and love this summer with your family and friends!
