long time, no see…hi!

Yoga teacher, world traveler, wannabe-blogger. I used to have lots to say when faced with the “so, tell me about yourself” question. Back when life was “normal”, I (most days) felt like a fully-formed, interesting, accomplished human bean. Lately, though, that question gives me a pit-in-your-gut, awful, unworthy feeling. I struggle to think of an…… Continue reading long time, no see…hi!

gym class 2.0

The vast majority of my memories from elementary school gym class involve getting hit with some type of ball. I also vaguely remember a lot of made-up games with rules I never quite understood.

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
