“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.” -Joseph Campbell  bijalifeyoga

Above: Jayne Gottlieb and students practicing yoga on Sunday morning

We just spent a day with two very special people in Aspen. Jayne Gottlieb and Lisa Cohen are the “Bija Girls” who lead our retreat on Sunday. Joseph Campbell’s quote help set the theme of the day; transition. Transitioning into different yoga poses, moving forward into healthier eating habits, and setting personal life goals. It started out with an uplifting and spiritual Bhakti Flow class at Jayne’s le cercle yoga studio.


Following yoga, we had a short walk to Lisa’s house for a healthy snack and green smoothie. Lisa Cohen is a nutritionist and exercise physiologist and really impressed us! She started us off with cherries and whole wheat toast with almond butter and sliced strawberries-a much better alternative than strawberry jam!     bijalifesmoothie_0116

This was our favorite part of the snack, a green smoothie! It is such a refreshing and clean way to start your morning. Lisa recommends 16 ounces in the morning and she shared her recipe with us:

1 cup almond milk

2 handfuls of spinach or combo with kale

a few basil leaves

2 stalks of celery

a few parsley leaves

half a cucumber, peeled

1 handful of ice

1 red apple

1 banana

some optional but important add ons:

1 tablespoon chia seeds

1 tablespoon hemp seeds

1 teaspoon coconut oil

1 tablespoon of essential fatty acid supplement

Blend all ingredients together until smooth, then add the apple and banana. Blend again and voila! Your green smoothie is ready to drink!

Lisa and Jayne led us on a beautiful hike up Basalt mountain. Look at Mt. Sopris in the background, it was so inspiring!


Above: Chef Krisi and the beautiful lunch she made for us

After our hike, we went back to Lisa’s where Chef Krisi had prepared lunch for us. She outdid herself with this light and refreshing summer Vietnamese Salad. Most of us couldn’t help but go back for seconds! We begged for Krisi’s cookie recipe, they were a perfect something sweet after lunch to get us ready for weight training.


During our weight training session, Lisa gave us some excellent tools to take home. Whether you’re traveling or in the gym after 30 minutes of cardio, it is a great way to tone and tighten!


Jayne ended our day with a short mediation and closing thoughts. We had a few minutes to reflect on our day and all came up with one word to describe how we felt at that moment. Rejuvenated, peaceful, happy, excited! We highly recommend that everyone go to Bija Life, it was an experience that will keep you motivated and moving forward in the journey of life. Lisa and Jayne, thank you for everything, we had an amazing time and can’t wait to do it again!
