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

when you can’t just yoga yourself better

For most people, on most days, calling in to work saying something like, “I’m sorry, I just can’t make it in today – I’ve been on the toilet all night!” is just not a thing they’re willing to do. But when the more honest call would sound like “I’m having a really horrible mental health…… Continue reading when you can’t just yoga yourself better

be gentle with yourself

When was the last time you told someone, point-blank, “you’re really terrible at that”, or “wow, your hair looks awful today”? How about the last time another person said something like that to you? I’m thinking, for most people, it’d be a struggle to recall a time that that happened. It’s just not a thing…… Continue reading be gentle with yourself

the great youthful yogi~~

I just don’t understand why some people get so upset about upcoming birthdays, and hate the thought of getting older. Like my mama says, it’s better than the alternative, isn’t it? 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~~

It’s no wonder I’m a yogi – Worrier pose is my specialty!* I’ve always been a chronic overthinker. I need to know what’s happening, when, and have a game plan. Otherwise (and even sometimes when I do have a plan in my head), I start to worry. When my mama and I planned a trip…… Continue reading just go with it

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..
