    Heat-Building Flow Yoga Class

    Temperatures are starting to drop, and it’s getting harder to get out of a toasty bed on a Sunday morning. Honestly, the thought of pancakes were the only thing to get me up and at it this morning! As we move into winter, to stay warm we have to build our own heat, ignite our internal fire. This month’s free yoga class, that is now on my channel, will help you do just that, with a heat-building flow practice. This is a slower flow, so it’s perfect for a variety of…

    Seasonal Self Care Suggestions

    The weather has been very unpredictable lately. One day it feels like Fall, the next it feels like Winter has come early, but then a couple days later it goes back to the autumnal warmth. I’ve been thinking and speaking about transition lately, and it now feels like we’re in the thick of it. What season is it? Do I need a sweater or a coat? Are my energy levels high or low? Do I feel like staying bundled up inside under a blanket or frolicking amongst the fallen leaves?…

    Lessons from the Moon: Part 2

    Days later, I am still riding high off this weekend’s Full Beaver Moon in Taurus and a full moon yoga class at Tough Love Yoga. Therefore, I am back with another Lesson from the Moon! This lesson is all about transition. I think it’s safe to say a lot, if not most, people don’t like change. We feel comfortable when we feel settled. I know I thrive on all levels – mental health, productivity, and general well being – when I have my routine down. I did have a brief moment…

    A Few Hand & Wrist Stretches

    The temperatures have been dropping, slowly but surely. Plus with a lot of good shows on Netflix (Mindhunter and Stranger Things 2 for the win!), I have found myself in full on knitting mode. Binge watching and crafting just go so well together. The only downside is that my fingers not only get tired, but they also cramp up. For some reason, my pinky fingers decide to curl in on themselves every time I knit. And after working on my latest project for 3 or more hours at a time,…

    Getting Back in the Groove

    Life happens. Unexpected situations occur. We get busy. We become stressed. And then our healthy habits and routines get thrown out the window. We have all been there. Last week was one of those for me. I was in good company with out-of-town family, but my routine was thrown upside down. I personally thrive on a routine, so when it’s out of whack, I very easily fall into bad habits. I stopped meditating. I drank more soda in a week than I have in at least the past two months. This…

    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…
