nope, no fun allowed at yoga class…?

Come on now, how can I even try to compete with sweet, cuddly, eight-week-old puppy dogs? Just look at that lil face. Anyone who knows me knows I am 100% a cat person (and 99.5% afraid of dogs), but when the local SPCA asked me to help out with a puppy yoga class, I had…… Continue reading nope, no fun allowed at yoga class…?

good things are coming

Things like sunshine, and warmer weather! Okay, yeah, I know: slow my roll. Living in Newfoundland, where a snowstorm in June is not a terribly unlikely event, I should know better. 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

teeny tiny tips to tttttt…..meditate

I tried, okay. Now- before I even get started: I’m soooo not going all “zen master of the world”, more-spiritual-than-thou on you here. I am still very, very new at this whole meditation thing, and I’m still so far from being “good” at it.

~wooey-wooey hippie crap

Anyone who’s not on board for some woo-woo hippie bullshit, here’s your warning. You might wanna skip this one; I feel like I’m taking a leap here. (Or you’re always welcome to read along anyway, rolling your eyes and making fun as necessary. Just sayin’. I told ya, I’m full of it..) I think I…… Continue reading ~wooey-wooey hippie crap

I think one of the (many) reasons yoga has stolen my heart and become my addiction is how ever-expanding the practice is. The variations and modifications to each pose are endless, and as someone with a terribly short attention span (seriously, never try to play Monopoly with me), I love that there’s always something new…… Continue reading whatever variation works best for you – do that

one more time for the people in the back…

FOOD DOES NOT HAVE A MORAL VALUE!!! I’m sick of hearing my own voice, I’ve said this so much lately. Even more often than usual now, during the holiday season. “Oh I’ve been so naughty, I think all I did over Christmas was eat.” “No dessert for me, thanks, I’m being good.” “Who’ll be bad…… Continue reading one more time for the people in the back…

the grinch should probably try a yoga class…

Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels slightly affronted each time a well-meaning person casually asks, “So, all ready for Christmas or what?”. I have to stifle the maniacal laughter that is my first reaction to this, and restrain myself from sputtering, “Are you crazy?! No!!”. My brain still refuses to acknowledge…… Continue reading the grinch should probably try a yoga class…
