The Laka Lady comes in myriad forms. She is both big + small, thin + voluptuous, sexy + prude, conservative + liberal, spirited + sometimes blocked, dramatic + calm, happy + sad, athletic + sedentary at times, and everything in between. But there is a spark in the Laka Lady to hold her own version of self-care as paramount. Beyond the physical, but in her own way of defining spirituality + nutrition + meditation. There are no rules within Laka Living except doing everything with authenticity that is nothing short of flammable. She energizes herself through dance, movement, and plant medicine and absolutely knows real from fake. We are on the search for the Laka Lady in various forms and their inidvidual 10 Laws of Living....
We had the honor of watching the spirit of Kauai move through Alanna Brennan: mama, choreographer, surfer, and full time spirit weaver. It isn't about memorizing movement, it is about feeling movement. Dance with us! as the island of creativity takes full form. Thank you Alanna for breaking it down at Acid Drop' surf break.
1. Let love rule
This is really the only rule that I strive to live by. Love is pure and everything that is good. If you let love be the main focus in your life only good can come. Love the people you surround yourself with, love what you do, do all things for the love, but MOST importantly LOVE YOURSELF. This is, of course, much more easily said that done, but this is where I always try to center myself. I dance because I love it! I surf because I love it! Love is the reason, love is the drug.
10. Family first
