Stress Relief

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qiKJRoX_2uo Really enjoyed starting my practice with this one tonight. When it ended, I thought "wait, that's it?! I need more!" So of course I practiced tree pose on my own for a bit. This is a pose I really enjoy, because the balance is challenging for me without being out of my reach. I... Continue Reading →

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...

Studio Yoga

Tonight I went to my favorite local yoga studio for candlelight yin with my favorite local teacher. It was exactly where I needed to be after a very trying day. I smiled through much of class because I found myself trying things that I hadn't before, and succeeding in things I had been avoiding. My... Continue Reading →

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. -Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Choose love. Choose to be the light in the... Continue Reading →

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 →
