    SE Yoga Conference 2017

    This past Saturday I spent the day at the Southeast Yoga Conference. It was hosted here in Atlanta at the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel. I arrived around 9:30am for a day full of yoga and connecting with fellow teachers. When you register online ahead of time, you design your own schedule. Even though it was a full weekend conference, I could only go Saturday. There were still plenty of enriching offerings. There were 3 time slots – 10am-12pm, 1:30-3:30pm, and 4-6pm. Each section had about 4 different workshops to choose…

    Hunger by Roxane Gay

    I first found out about this book just over a month ago via Twitter. And immediately thereafter I discovered that Roxane Gay was going to be in Atlanta on her book tour later that same week. Unfortunately I couldn’t go because of my teaching schedule but I quickly ran out to the nearest bookstore and bought Hunger.  I was already in the middle of reading It by Stephen King (and still am), but when I went to LA I decided to bring this book along for the ride. On the way…

    New Launches From Meow Meow Tweet

    One of my most watched videos on my channel is my Natural Deodorant Reviews. I have been using natural deodorant for at least 3 years now. In the first few minutes of the video, I explain why natural is better and safer for you. I also talked about a few products I’ve tried, including Meow Meow Tweet’s baking soda free cream deodorant. I liked it, but honestly I didn’t get along with it too well because mine had tiny little chunks in it that wouldn’t dissolve when applied. I do…

    What Are You Most Excited About Right Now?

    Hello, hello, hello! It feels like it has been so long since I’ve posted even though it’s only been 2 weeks. But how inspiring those weeks have been. Let’s take it back to the beginning – the night of Monday, April 24th. I went to see Elizabeth Gilbert give a talk about Creative Living. I had heard about this event back in December. I wanted to go and the week before the event, I finally sat down and ordered my ticket. And before I knew it, the night came. I…

    Confidence and Clear Skin

    Over the past few months, my skin has had its ups and downs. Sometimes it will be clear with just a few tiny spots here and there, but as recently as last week, I had spots all over my face, even in places I never get acne (thank you airplane air). When I was feeling frustrated, I was talking to my mom about it and complained how when you’re a teenager everyone tells you your skin gets clearer when you’re in your twenties. But honestly, my skin was better then…

    Holding Memories

    You may or may not know but I studied photography in college, specifically, black and white film photography. I dabbled in digital photography, which I mostly do now because of equipment limitations, but film was, and still is, my love. I would spend hours at a time in the darkroom making prints. Each photograph needed the right exposure, the perfect amount of contrast, and exact framing. I could easily spend over an hour on one photo making small adjustments that some people might not notice. The time wasn’t just spent on…

    Life as an Introvert

    I like being alone, whether I’m reading, knitting, writing, filming, doing a home yoga practice, or just sitting and thinking. When I socialize, I much prefer one-on-one or small groups. But even then, I need time to myself afterwards. I can be hesitant to try new things. I think before I speak, sometimes too much that I end up sitting there saying nothing because I can’t fully put my words together. When I do speak, I often worry what I said was stupid, could be misinterpreted, or wasn’t what I…

    Knitting My First Sweater

    I have been knitting since 2008, thanks to one of my friends taking the time to teach me in college. I’ve mostly made scarves, with a couple attempts at hats. My scarves have always been relatively successful.  However, I might have been a bit too ambitious with my first hat by using a fancy pattern, messing up said pattern, then feeling hopeless and giving up. Basically, I enjoy knitting, but I’m just okay at it. Good, maybe, but definitely not great. Flash forward to a few months ago, I kept…
