in defence of #yoga

Honestly, I think some people must sit around, brainstorming things they can find fault with, or be offended by. I’m sick of reading about seemingly-uncontroversial things suddenly becoming a huge internet controversy because someone decides they’re offensive or inappropriate. Does everything have to be such an issue? Live and let live, bro, kumbaya. The “issue”…… Continue reading in defence of #yoga

nah, you wouldn’t like it..

Well, it’s too late to save me – I’m a full-blown yoga junkie. I admit it; Hi, my name is Emily, and I’m a yogaholic. It’s changed my entire life, it’s affected the people closest to me, and at this point, I just can’t imagine my life without it. But that’s my cross to bear.…… Continue reading nah, you wouldn’t like it..

Dear yoga: I hope that by writing this, today, I don’t sound like the crappy boyfriend who only buys flowers on Valentine’s Day. You know I love you every day, right?

do what you love. no more. no less.

It’s been more than a while since I’ve written about my “journey” as a yoga teacher. I guess it’s time for a little update. So, how’s it going? Hmmm, ummmmm, yeah, about that. Honestly, I haven’t been doing much teaching at all lately. I was away in Portugal for a week, and missed my class…… Continue reading do what you love. no more. no less.

#sorrynotsorry, pet peeves on the yoga mat

So by now you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m not exactly the most serene, even-tempered, kumbaya, save-the-whales yogi. More often than I’d like to admit, the “no judgment” rule gets completely thrown out the window. The “no expectations” rule, that one slips too – if things don’t go the way I think…… Continue reading #sorrynotsorry, pet peeves on the yoga mat
