I've always loved to read books. The first time (yes, first time) I read The Hunger Games trilogy, I read them in 3 days. I usually read books quickly. But in 2016, I slowed down a bit in my reading game. I suspect that completing a yoga teacher training had something to do with this, but … Continue reading Receive.
Patient - "bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint; not hasty or impetuous; steadfast despite opposition, difficulty, or adversity". (Definition found here.) It's been a while since I've blogged, guys. 2016 is over. My yoga teacher training is complete. Donald Trump was elected President (which I started a blog about, but never finished. If … Continue reading Patience.
For the past seven days, I've been at a loss for what to say. A week ago, I woke up and found out that 49 people were killed in a gay club in Orlando, Florida. And my heart broke. It continues to break. What does one say in the light of such tragedy? I remember Columbine. … Continue reading Guns & Shootings Vs. Empathy & Love
So often, when people think of "yoga" they think only of the physical portion, or the asanas. While the asanas are an important part of yoga, they are not the only part. As I've been practicing yoga more and more, I am noticing how it is affecting my life. Since doing yoga regularly, I find myself … Continue reading Asanas: Why I Love Tree Pose
Hello lovelies! I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Mine was spent with family and lots of sunshine, laughs, and the movie "Independence Day". Very patriotic indeed. I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to write about after ending my body image series posts last week, but I've had something on … Continue reading Dharma & Greg: Finding Self
Hello, lovelies! What a beautiful weekend it has been. Friday was an incredible day to witness. I was sitting at my desk at work Friday morning when I heard that the Supreme Court ruled gay marriage was legal across all 50 states via Facebook. I was overwhelmed with happiness and joy and tears immediately began … Continue reading Body Image: Resources
Hello lovelies! It's Memorial Day weekend and I've been spending it with my husband and a handful of our friends out in the country in a secluded house. We are surrounded by large Oak trees with beautiful dangling spanish moss. It's been raining a lot, but that has not discouraged us from enjoying each other's … Continue reading Fleeting Moments: Meditation
We all have something we dislike about our body, right? I know I do. The funny thing is, I didn't always. I grew up participating in all sorts of activities - girl scouts, ice skating (I was going to be the next Tara Lipinski), swimming, piano lessons, etc. My family put a lot of emphasis … Continue reading Yoga & My Body: Comfortable
Earlier this spring, my dog Regina and I went for a stroll. It was a beautiful spring day, smelling like rain and sunshine. One of my favorite things about owning a dog is that it almost forces me to get outside more and just go on simple walks. I went a different route this day … Continue reading I Was Taking a Walk
Good morning, lovelies! This week we are discussing anahata, the heart chakra. I did not feel a sense of connection researching anahata like I did manipura, but it was fun reading about the heart chakra over St. Patrick's Day week. This chakra's color is green, so I found myself drawn to that color pretty naturally … Continue reading Anahata: All You Need Is Love
