And on the seventh day, she rested.

Here we are, folks. I've marked 7 days of yoga on my calendar. Seven consecutive days of practice. Some insights from this first week of Yoga 365: Waiting till the end of the day is not always a good thing. Sometimes it's a great thing, when you have the perfect slow, stretchy practice after a...

Practice Makes Perfect 

Clearly I still need to work on this whole daily post concept. It's been a busy week, and all too easy to set this aside. So now I will stretch my brain a bit to see what I've been thankful for these last few days. I am thankful for pizza. I am thankful for flirting.... Continue Reading →
