This might count as a bad yogi confession. Or it might make me seem like a better yogi – more spiritual and less “of the physical world”, perhaps? (LOL how’s that for woo-woo-hippie bullshit?) I’m really not sure where this puts me on the spectrum running from Bad Yogi to Good, but it is what…… Continue reading #fitness~~~
I’ve had some of my wisest revelations on my yoga mat. Despite the practice being a way to disconnect from the stress and the everyday goings-on of life, often my brain is doing background work, sorting out things and piecing together wisdom. It’s not unusual for me to arrive at a yoga class with a…… Continue reading useless knowledge yoga has taught me

But I can’t help but feel encouraged that brighter days are on the (possibly far-off) horizon. Literally speaking though, the brighter days have already…… Continue reading good things are coming
I think one of the (many) reasons yoga has stolen my heart and become my addiction is how ever-expanding the practice is.
