In January, the yoga studio I was teaching at closed. I was devastated and heartbroken to be losing a place that I loved and was full of so much community. Since then, people have asked me if I have found another studio to teach at, or what my plans are for teaching yoga moving forward. … Continue reading I Am Not Teaching Yoga Anymore: Learning to Listen to Me
Hello, lovelies! Well, it's been over a month since I last wrote a blog post for you all. I have no real reason for this. I have a lot of excuses I could make, but I'm not going to rely on them. It HAS been a busy month. I started my yoga teacher training in … Continue reading Finding Self Compassion
Hello, lovelies! As you know, I am about to embark on the journey of yoga teacher training. It starts in 19 days! I'm feeling like I'm not adequate. That my yoga isn't "advanced" enough. That I'll be the "worst" yogi there. My yoga teacher assures me that these fears and worries are normal; that these … Continue reading A Whole Month of Yoga: Reflections
Today was not my best day. I got stuck in traffic for 2 hours this morning, just to end up going ...2 miles? 5? Obviously I didn't make it to my destination, because I had been in traffic for two hours and by the time I would have arrived I would have been out of … Continue reading I Was Cranky, But Yoga.

Hello, lovelies! One month of 2016 is already over. How are those new year resolutions working out? One of my goals for the year is to complete (or at least start) a 200 hour yoga teacher training. I don't want to apply to a training until my LPC Intern hours are turned in, but now … Continue reading Am I Ready for YTT?
Hello, lovelies! Sorry for the lack of blog posts the past two weeks. The holidays had us in Pennsylvania, traveling after tornadoes, and party hopping New Years Eve weekend. Super fun, but this introvert has been exhausted. I spent a good chunk of yesterday on the couch, watching TV, recharging, and napping. (It was glorious.) … Continue reading 108 Sun Salutations
Hello, lovelies! Today I will be writing a short post breaking down an asana I love. I've done this in the past with tree pose and with legs up on the wall. Honestly, writing about an asana seems to be something I do for the blog when I'm crunched for time. I focused a lot of … Continue reading Asanas: Why I Love Camatkarasana
Hello, lovelies! How was everyone's Thanksgiving? We spent ours with family. There was lots of good eatin' and laughing. Unfortunately, I ended up getting really sick after our big meal. Being sick when you are wanting to spend time with family members you don't see on a regular basis is not a fun experience. 😦 … Continue reading Depression: Postpartum & Yoga
