    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…

    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…

    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…

    Urdhva Dhanurasana Video Tutorial

    I have another yoga video up on my channel for you! This video tutorial breaks down Urdhva Dhanurasana, one of my favorite backbends that opens the door to many others. While a more “fundamental” backbend, it is quite difficult. Despite needing strength and flexibility in your shoulders, open hip flexors and quads, a lot of flexion in your wrists is required too. I show you 3 variations, all with different degrees of flexion in the wrist. The only props you’ll need are a blanket and a wall. If you don’t have…

    How & Why I Journal

    Yesterday I uploaded a new video to my channel talking about something that is near and dear to my heart – journaling. I have been writing in a journal/diary on and off almost my entire life. I still remember my first one, one of those diaries that had a built in lock. Of course I proceeded to lose the key and have to break into it with a bobby pin. Journaling has helped me get through some tough times, and has allowed me to learn more about myself after the…

    What I’d Tell My Younger Self

    As another year of my life is complete, I have been thinking about my past, my present, and what I hope my future will bring. Today’s new video is about the past – specifically, what I wish I could tell my younger self. I can’t change my past, who I was at various times in my life, and I’m not sure I would if I could because my experiences have made me into who I am today. But I do wonder, what would be different if I knew these things…

    New Channel Trailer, New Direction

    When I first started YouTube almost a year ago, I tried making videos that were already popular ideas, ones I thought would get a lot of views whether I liked the idea or not. One of those videos did actually succeed on that front and has over 7,000 views today. Except, honestly, that’s my least favorite video. Since the beginning of 2017, I started moving away from those types of videos and talking about whatever I wanted to talk about. But my views were very low, some not even breaking…
