forget “chill”, be vulnerable

Don’t text first – you don’t want them to have the upper hand. Don’t take part in that talent show – you might mess up and become a laughingstock. Don’t ask for a promotion at work – what if they say no?? How many things do we, every day, prevent ourselves from doing because of…… Continue reading forget “chill”, be vulnerable

the journey, one year in

Ah, the Facebook “On This Day” feature. Most days, it’s a reminder of what an embarrassing human I can be – poorly-edited selfies, links to terribly angsty music videos, ridiculous status updates about god knows what. (I always know it’s gonna be cringe-worthy, why do I feel the need to look?!) But this week I…… Continue reading the journey, one year in

i sure say “no worries” a lot for someone who worries about EVERYTHING…

A non-exhaustive list of things I have zero control over: -Whether or not we have nice weather for my outdoors plans next weekend; -If that customer from last week is still mad at me; -What kind of food they’ll serve at an upcoming event I’m attending; -How much the ding on my friend’s car door…… Continue reading i sure say “no worries” a lot for someone who worries about EVERYTHING…

you do you, boo

Confession: I maybe kinda left the yoga studio tonight and immediately spent the money I’d just earned teaching on Poptarts, Fresca, and the latest edition of Cosmo. Whoops, my Good Yogi halo is slipping. Yeah…you all know how much I’m not concerned with being a perfect yogi. Who says I can’t guide a class into…… Continue reading you do you, boo

And if you make it to an age so-high-you-can-brag-about-it with your mind and body intact, all the better! Physically, I know, there are so…… Continue reading the great youthful yogi~~

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

dear yoga (a love letter on international yoga day)

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)
