    Ardha Chandrasana, Half Moon Pose

    It’s been a little while, but I am back with another pose breakdown for you! This pose, Ardha Chandrasana, or Half Moon Pose is one of my favorites. I am a bit biased because it’s a moon pose. But I also love how it requires laser sharp focus, no matter where I am in my practice. It’s a standing pose, it’s a balancing pose, and it requires a whole lot of core engagement. Let’s get into some of Iyengar’s thoughts on it’s benefits, taken from Light on Yoga: It tones…

    Easy Like Sunday Morning Yoga Class

    I love a good, long, hard, alignment focused yoga class. But as Fall is finally (finally!) creeping in, and the weather changes, I can feel myself want to slow down. I know you’re feeling it too based on the requests I get in public classes! I’m happy to bring you this free, 25 minute yoga class that I like to call Easy Like Sunday Morning. We start in Savasana (always a good sign), and stay on our backs working into our ankles, hips, hamstrings, and starting to bring a little…

    My Quest for Less

    I have been on a serious cleaning frenzy for the past month! If you’ve been here before, you may have read my Out with the Old post about clearing out, making space, and evaluating my relationship with consumerism. I basically haven’t stopped since. Back then, almost exactly a month ago, I had been working on my office space – getting rid of unloved books (the tragedy!), organizing papers from more than 2 years ago, and just putting shit away. After that process, I realized how much better I felt. There…

    Lessons from the Moon

    I have always had a fascination with the moon, but as I have made it part of my brand, I spend even more time thinking about it. I’m constantly questioning what it represents and what it has to teach me. Maybe this will become a series where I share what I’m learning and new ways I’m connecting with that big, beautiful rock in the sky, but today I want to focus on one specific lesson – equally embracing the dark and the light. Growing up, especially as a teenager, I…

    A Gratitude List

    Last week I was feeling the love! I taught backbends in my classes and we discussed how love relates to vulnerability. We all feel fear at the thought of putting ourselves in a vulnerable position and expressing our feelings. But by doing so, we let love in. I have been working on being vulnerable, and last week it felt like it was all coming together and the vulnerability had been worth it. Riding off this love, I started reflecting on all of the positives in my life and came up…

    Nadi Shodhana Tutorial

    A pranayama practice has many benefits, including helping you go deeper into meditation. This video is about Nadi Shodhana, or alternate nostril breathing. It is all about balance, and coming off the Autumnal Equinox seemed like a perfect to post this. In case you don’t know, pranayama is often thought of as “yoga breathing.” Changing the way in which we breath can lead to a change of how we feel. As I said, Nadi Shodhana is about creating and restoring balance. Physically, it regulates the flow of air through the…

    The Power of Community

    I haven’t held back about expressing my difficulties with friends this year. I did make a video about friendship breakups after all. I am a relatively shy introvert, and truthfully I think friendships are hard in your 20’s as we’re all moving through life at a different pace. People come in and out of your life all the time. I have been lucky that fate (and social media) has brought a couple of friends from my past back to the present. I trust them both dearly and I have loved…

    Twist It Out Yoga Class

    Friends, there is a new yoga class up on my channel! We are almost in full Fall mode. The weather is constantly changing, but there’s a coolness in the mornings that wasn’t there over the summer. As I’ve mentioned in my Out with the Old blog post, I’ve been spending a lot of my time clearing out my physical spaces. I cleared off and organized my desk, I went through my closet for the umpteenth time this year, and I got rid of two boxes of books. The next step…
