My beautiful amazing friend Darcy Andelin talking about the importance of exercise and aging! Get out and move!

Two years ago, I was able to take a break from mortgage lending to become a yoga teacher. The journey to become a yoga teacher has taught me so many wonderful things. It really has changed my whole prospective on life. I am so glad to enter back into mortgage lending with this new-found outlook on life.

I bring the life principles of yoga into each mortgage transaction that I handle. I treat my clients like I treat my friends and family. If you know of anyone looking to buy a home or thinking about refinancing their existing mortgage please share my information with them.

I can be reached at 480-313-7103 or by email at [email protected].

Put down that painkiller, pick up a yoga mat: VA study finds yoga helps chronic back pain without pills

Great article about how yoga is better than pain pills!!!

sandiegouniontribune.com In the middle of a prescription painkiller overdose crisis in the United States, a San Diego VA study finds that veterans with chronic pain would be well-served to put down the pills and pick up a yoga mat.


Happy St. Patty's Day!



Who remembers Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs from school?

I often think about this and put into use in my life.

I find that many people are operating in the RED and ORANGE areas and not actualizing their full potential, just surviving (or not).

As American's I feel like the basics of finances and life planning are completely missed in school. We are sink or swim when it comes to money and planning our future. Some of us might have had someone like our parents to guide us, but others just figure it out.

I feel so thankful for the guidance from not only my parents but my aunts about money and planning. I am by no means perfect about money but I try.

I incorporate the lessons I learned from my family, in yoga teacher training with my mortgage background to try and help clients move up the hierarchy and begin to enjoy life.

It is so hard to worry about bills, work, kids, life...with no plan. If you need help with a plan call me. 480-313-7103, Sam, Your Mortgage Yogini


My reminder for the day...


Home Buyer Vision Boards - It's A Party!

Becoming a homeowner is a big deal! It takes, saving, planning, budgeting, cutting back, maybe not doing all the things you want to do...
Sometimes, a night out for dinner seems more important than sticking to the budget. BUT, what if you had an accountability partner? Your significant other, your kids, your friends, your family, your mortgage broker???

WE get it! It takes a team to become a SUCCESSFUL Homeowner!

Part of our home buyers program is helping you visualize your goals. AND get everyone in the house envolved!

We encourage you to discuss your budget, and planning to buy a home with your children, friends and family. Not only do they learn good financial habits but they become your accountability partner!

Vision Boards are great reminders of the plan! They are also great projects to do with your kids, friends and family!

Check out some of our Home Buyer Vision Board Parties!

RYT® 500

In August of 2016 when I graduated from Teacher Training I never thought that I would complete the additional requirements to be a registered yoga teacher. I could not imagine teaching 100 hours! Less than two years later I have actually taught 666.50 hours. Thanks to all my friends and family who supported me through this life changing journey!

[05/23/18]   Had a seated yoga student tell me today that at her annual physical her doctor told her she grew a half and inch. She said he has been her doctor for 20 years and he was baffled at her growth.

She told him it was because of her yoga class and focus on her posture.

Changing Course: Jimmy Choi’s Story

This is truly an inspiring story of how exercising reduces the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. In the past few months I have seen dramatic changes in my PD students who have stepped up their game and begun pushing themselves to exercise more and with greater intensity.

Parkinson’s affects everyone differently. And, each individual’s approach to living with it is just as variable. Jimmy Choi, a member of The Michael J. Fox F...

Parkinson's Disease | The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research

Last week when I taught my PWR! Moves class I ended class with a guide mediation and affirmations. One of my students has extremely bad tremors caused by Parkinson’s. He told me he doesn’t believe in meditation and that he needed me the show him scientific evidence that meditation would help him. I said I would bring him info on it next time but would he just humor me this time and do the meditation. He agreed to just do it this one time.

Half way through the meditation his shaking stop his breathing slowed and I could physically see him drop into a meditative state. I almost started dancing around the room. It was the most powerful example of how mediation helps calm the body and mind!

Once we came out of meditation I asked him if he realized that he 🛑 having tremors while he was meditating. He said no he didn’t not and he would be waiting for the information from me next week.

So I am finding all kinds of info on the benefits of yoga & meditation for people with Parkinson’s. Here is just one article that I found interesting.
