Looking forward to seeing you:)
Welcome! my name is Jacqueline Nalule Caraway. Born and raised in Uganda, East Africa and now residing in Illinois, a small community that has brought me to quietly discover myself through the exploration of Sustained Movement through breathe and Meditation. Mom of three very energized children and wife to a supportive partner, I have had to stumble my way into my own. I have had to learn some lessons in this school of hard-knocks, lol. My past experience in pursuing a career in Modeling and Acting was a huge part of that too.
It was such a joy having grown up in Uganda. Though it had it's fair share of enlightenment, there is still plenty of growth to be had. This blog is my effort in sharing my journey. Join me as we dive into depths of growth through exploration of body, mind, spirit and soul through Yoga while giving back to those that need it most.
Nurture all life under love eternally...
Starting with YOU:)
Yoga is an important part of life for many reasons. For me it has given me strength, confidence and a sense of purpose so to speak.
My love for yoga stems back to my first pregnancy... I experienced such intense Postpartum that my slice of heaven was the time I put in when on the mat practicing Yoga asanas. Now, my practice is consistent because my soul body and spirit is filled with so much joy every time I experience it. I can not say the same when my body is exhausted, though because then, I listen and give myself a break.

Meditation brings a balance in my life that I never imagined possible. I have made my fair share of mistakes in this life and It is through meditation that what one would call prayer, and stillness, contemplation emerges at it’s best. I am learning to forgive myself for enduring and accepting what did not nurture and is not nurturing my soul through the practice of meditation. I love being still and at peace during meditation. I do pray too! The two are completely different in the sense that prayer we speak to God, whilst meditation we listen to God. I am also learning to accept what I cannot change and have no control over. Sanity is my friend!:)

You might be wondering what smi-eyezing means. Well, it is smiling with your eyes:) I heard this a lot in the circuits of modeling. Little did I know that it also applied to life in general. Yes, with a soft gaze on your face, a smile in your liver is easier to manifest. Now watch what happens to the rest of YOU. Your body and spirit. A smile from within will make you feel Magnifique:) from within to the outside. I also like to nurture my body through a well balanced nutrition
such as vegetables, anything green and edible I will try, fruits, smoothies, detox teas and anything sweet but with all natural sugars. I do have a sweet tooth, so I try to pay close attention to my intake a day.
- Awakening to our everyday life should be fun and welcomed with purpose and gratitude! And on the days that seem gloom, I like to take a deep breathe and sit on my mat just to see what happens.
- What happens when you show up to your life with a conscious mind, it smiles back and rewards you.
Welcome! Isn't it gratifying when you stumble on something so delicious like the education on Yoga through avenues like the summit above? I will say, YES!!! It is truly important…
