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? If I could, I’d wear lulu’s and “I heart yoga” shirts every day, and run away to some beautiful beach with just my yoga…… Continue reading dear yoga (a love letter on international yoga day)
Ready for your annoyingly positive quote of the day? (I know, I’m lame, but those Pinterest motivational quote boards are almost like a guilty pleasure for me. Whatever, judge away..) “Work out because you love your body, not because you hate it.” In a society that’s uber-focused on diets, fitness, and -let’s be honest here-…… Continue reading in case you need a reminder…
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.

I’m not a gambling girl, but I’m willing to bet you’ve already done at least one yoga pose today, whether you realized it or not. If you break down the poses, you’ll find a lot of…… Continue reading that’s it, i’m calling BS…

On some level, I can understand where the assumption comes from. A lot of yogis do choose the veggie life.…… Continue reading “but you can’t eat meat, you’re a yogi…”
ommmmmmm Greetings. Shalom. Namaste. Did I mention I became a meditation master while I was away, and am now officially zen as eff? …if I did, I was lying, because I’m still fairly useless at shutting off my brain for a time out. But – I did learn that meditation is not just sitting still on…… Continue reading portugal, part 2
