work in progress? nope, you are a masterpiece.

Rah rah, love your body! All bodies are good bodies! Your body is perfect just the way it is! It’s a welcome attitude in a society that’s constantly telling us we need to change our bodies in order to love them. Going against all the messages saying your body is the enemy, and actually loving…… Continue reading work in progress? nope, you are a masterpiece.

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~~

But that’s my cross to bear.…… Continue reading nah, you wouldn’t like it..

It’s been more than a while since I’ve written about my “journey” as a yoga teacher. I guess it’s time for a little update. So, how’s it going? Hmmm, ummmmm, yeah, about that. Honestly, I haven’t been doing much teaching at all lately. I was away in Portugal for a week, and missed my class…… Continue reading do what you love. no more. no less.

#sorrynotsorry, pet peeves on the yoga mat

So by now you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I’m not exactly the most serene, even-tempered, kumbaya, save-the-whales yogi. More often than I’d like to admit, the “no judgment” rule gets completely thrown out the window. The “no expectations” rule, that one slips too – if things don’t go the way I think…… Continue reading #sorrynotsorry, pet peeves on the yoga mat
