Show Up

That's it. That's the hardest part of yoga. To show up. Really, truly bring all of myself to the mat, to my practice. Returned to the Movement Medicine Calm video tonight, because after a lazy day I knew I needed it. Still working like a charm, challenging me, lighting a fire, and bringing me back...

I was adamantly against doing any of the yoga routines I usually use when I'm distracted. So instead I chose a guided meditation. Just mindfulness meditation,... Continue Reading →

Good Evening

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 →

Starting Small

So it's been ages. Maybe two or three. But here I am, thinking about my blog again. Wondering why I never do seem to be able to keep up with it. So instead of just contemplating, I am doing. (for once) Lots of people I know are taking the time for November to post on... Continue Reading →
