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
I'm just going to be honest here: I have writer's block. It's a problem. I want to write. I want to keep posting blogs, but I'm finding that I'm at a loss for words. I haven't even been writing in my personal journal as much as normal. This is weird for me. I've been an avid journaler … Continue reading The Journey to Acceptance

Hello, lovelies! Last week, I wrote about what depression is and some stats that go along with that. I've been reading the book Yoga for Depression by Amy Weintraub lately to go along with these posts, because honestly, I wasn't quite sure where to go from here. It's hard to say what works and doesn't … Continue reading Depression: How Does Yoga Help?

I'm putting my focus today, however, on the summer solstice. I have been finding myself more and more connected to … Continue reading Honor the Sun: Summer Solstice
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
Here we are, at the last chakra. Writing this chakra series has been really fun and eye opening for me. I hope you learned something from this journey about how balancing the chakras can help clients in counseling. I'm sure the chakras are a subject I will go back to on this blog again, because … Continue reading Sahasrara: Somewhere Only We Know
