    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.┬áThis is a slower flow, so it’s perfect for a variety of…

    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,…

    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…

    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…

    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…
