I’m not flexible enough In yoga, you start where you are. You start with you. It’s not about competing with your neighbor to get deeper into a stretch. It’s about finding your sweet spot. My classes are and have always been all-level. I actively encourage the use of props. Even those of us who have [...]

The doors slowly slide open and the subtle scent of vanilla and jasmine are just barely noticeable. The room is warm, but not too warm, and there is a mat rolled out—one that isn’t mine. On the mat is a man I don’t know. My heart jumps into my throat as I slowly close the [...]

Body Awareness

Hi everyone! I had a thought today about body awareness. Now, I know most of us these days don't want to be aware of our bodies. It doesn't matter what size, shape, or age our body is, we tend to ignore it as much as possible so that we can ignore the "flaws" we are [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

Morning Mindfulness

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 [...]
