It’s probably a good thing my high school didn’t have a debate club. Because as argumentative as I can be (ask my dad, he’d agree with me on that one!), I lack any and all verbal skills necessary for a good debate. Sure, on paper I can manage to arrange a few words and sound…… Continue reading but…why yoga?
Bubble baths, days at the spa, retreat getaways to a tiny private island….this might be the kind of thing the words “self care” bring to mind. Maybe I’m going a bit overboard with the luxury vacay part, but you get the general idea. It’s all about “treat yo’self” this, and “YOLO – if it makes…… Continue reading hey, take care of yourself, aight?
Admit it: there are some people who, no matter how hard you try or how open-minded you stay, you simply cannot see eye-to-eye with. Conversely, sometimes you meet a person and just instantly feel a connection. That’s just the way human interaction is; some personalities mesh nicely together, and some jar against each other and…… Continue reading that yoga connection
“Be open to whatever the universe has in store for you.” I couldn’t tell you exactly which page, but I’m sure that’s written somewhere in The Good Yogi’s Bible. Sounds like one of those things, right? Once again, it’s a good thing I’ve already admitted and accepted the fact that I am and always will…… Continue reading it is what it is: surrendering to the universe, just a lil bit.
The more I teach, the more I wish I could quit my “real job” and be a full-time yogi. I read about girls like Rachel Brathen, who just started out teaching yoga to a few hippies on the beach and is now an internationally famous yogi. She had to start small, too – I’m sure…… Continue reading make it happen
Do you ever have one of those weeks that make you wonder what the hell you ever did to be on the receiving end of such bad karma? When the whole universe seems like it’s conspired against you? When so many things have gone wrong that you’re at the crazy-stressed “hahahahaha-at-least-things-can’t-get-any-worse” stage of despair? Yeah?…… Continue reading awful, shitty, really bad luck – and gratitude.
A two-pound wildcat that is surprised by her own tail is not exactly where I’d expected to find any profound wisdom. But, this lil kittacat is proving me wrong, and teaching me a thing or two. For those of you who don’t follow me on social media – I’ve recently fulfilled my lifelong desire to…… Continue reading kitty wisdom / being in the meow
“New year, new me!” *Pause here while I search (in vain) for an eye-roll emoji* If your Facebook newsfeed is not already plagued with the fitness, diet, self-improvement hype of the new year, prepare yourself. It’s coming. While I’m not necessarily hating on the whole idea of making a resolution to be “healthier”…I kind of…… Continue reading new year, new mindset
Can you feel it? That high-energy, go-go-go, overwhelming buzz that takes over this time of year? Ah, Christmas spirit. Christmas spirit, my butt. Christmas stress would probably be a lot more accurate. If people answered the question “how are you?” honestly this time of year, it’s pretty likely the answer would be along the lines…… Continue reading tis the season to be….stressed?
Peopleing is exhausting. The introverts reading this will know exactly what I mean by that. The others, who don’t, and are reading that like “huh?” – what is your secret?? I’m jealous of the people who are naturally social creatures, who can be surrounded by people all day and chitchat for hours and still feel…… Continue reading take a lil’ quiet time
