Mist

These past few days have been early mornings, beautiful sunrises and amazing landscapes. I watched the sun rise over a misty Missouri landscape this morning, it was breathtaking. The sun so rich with color it looked like it would melt before my eyes. I celebrated taking my daughter back to school. In that moment trusting [...]

Self-Love & Self-Compassion

By | 2017-07-14T09:26:28+00:00 October 18th, 2014|Meditation, Mindful Therapy, Musings|

Hello friends! I read an article recently that a friend posted on Facebook about self-love. The main premise of the article was that self-love does not leave enough room for compassion and that you learn to love yourself by loving others. My perception of this issue is a bit different. Let’s take a step back [...]

Rest

Hi Everyone! Yesterday I ate something that didn't agree with me. And while it wasn't full blown food poisoning, I felt pretty lethargic, yucky, and a bit feverish for most of the day. I wasn't able to teach yoga and I felt horrible about canceling classes. But then, as I allowed myself to really feel [...]

Intention & Actions

By | 2017-07-14T09:26:33+00:00 October 16th, 2014|Meditation, Musings|

Hi everyone! I had some musings about intention today; how it works, why we do it! An intention is anything you "set your mind to". An intent can be anything from "Self-compassion" to "I will be productive today". The point of any intention is to set a direction of energy and therefore a direction of [...]

Mindfulness and Responsibility

By | 2014-10-13T11:46:35+00:00 October 13th, 2014|Meditation, Musings, News|

What does mindfulness have to do with Responsibility? Everything! When we become mindful we become responsible for our feelings. This responsibility gives us the freedom to be in any situation. Being in any situation gives us the power to move out of anxiety and depression because we have taken responsibility for it and are no [...]

Yoga Poses (Asanas)

By | 2014-10-13T07:54:42+00:00 October 13th, 2014|Musings, Yoga|

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to talk about asanas, or yoga poses. While it might seem weird to talk about asanas rather than practice them, it is important to know why we practice yoga! Yoga, as we practice it today, is basically preparation for meditation. But way back in the day, before Hinduism or Buddhism, [...]

Awareness

By | 2014-10-11T11:28:38+00:00 October 11th, 2014|News|

Hello there everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! As I was teaching my yoga classes today, I noticed a shift in myself. As I was asking my students to be aware of their bodies, I began to be even more aware of my own. During Sun Salutations I noticed how my heart [...]

Being

By | 2014-10-09T22:42:31+00:00 October 9th, 2014|News|

Sunday I was sitting with my girls as I have many times before. This time I noticed something different. I noticed the celebratory nature of Being with my girls. I noticed how they play and question their environment. I also noticed how they interact with their environment and how I interact with them. With this [...]

Morning Mindfulness

By | 2014-10-09T11:25:09+00:00 October 9th, 2014|Meditation, Musings, News, Yoga|

Hey there pals! This morning I was running late, which is not a very frequent occurrence for me. But instead of running around like a chicken with my head cut off--which is the default setting when I am late--I decided to try something different. I looked at my clock and realized I had slept in [...]
