“Life is nice, but it lacks form.  It’s the aim of art to give it some.”

-Jean Anouilh

There has never been a manual to become a successful, prosperous, and happy person from scratch. We must go through the hills and valleys, highs and lows, breakdowns and breakthroughs of life experience. Sprinkled in with our personal experience is the insight of the wise we come across, and yet, the successful tips from others don’t always translate the same within our own lives. This unpredictability is what makes life such a beautiful thing. Things that are more tangible like material items, our bodies, and even me writing this blog, requires some sort of form. If the machines or people who manufactured my car ‘did what felt good to them’ whi...

Alright, well here goes nothing.  

Teaching yoga. It seems so easy to theme a class and talk about philosophical concepts, like how life can be so great if you just live more *insert inspirational word like compassionate, courageous, or vulnerable here*. But when it comes down to it, I have to ask myself, “am I really living that life, or am I just passing off the responsibility onto others?” I mean, it is one thing to talk about these ideas during a yoga practice, but living this way is another. I practice yoga a lot, and I acknowledge that I am dedicated and driven when it comes to improving. I am sure most people who do things consistently are great, or at least good, at what they do.  They can easily “step into their courage”...

The word "meditation" can conjure up some interesting imagery (perhaps a lone monk with a shaven head, sitting in full lotus on a mountain top in the Himalayas). Generally, some sort of unattainable idea of perfection that leads to intimidation and procrastination. Often I hear people say, "I've heard meditation is good for you...but I just don't have enough time" or "I can't meditate!"

Meditation isn't a mandatory expectation of perfection in any form. There's no prerequisite to practicing. You literally can begin anytime, anywhere! You cannot fail, even if your mind has been incessantly racing since you sat down. It's simply an intentional process of returning to the here-and-now. Every moment you retur...

If you’re reading this article, you are probably aware of yoga’s healing impact on both the mind and body. Different people are drawn to this ancient practice for all kinds of reasons – whether it’s looking to stretch and heal muscles in between high intensity trainings, finding a space to unwind and relax after commuting in traffic, or trying to establish a connection to one’s intuition and inner guide. Regardless of your motivation to get on your mat, if you’re looking to maximize your efforts then developing a consistent practice is crucial.

During the first moments in a yoga class, the teacher is focused on assisting your body in warming up. During this period you may be cued in “peddling out your dog” by bending the kne...

Summertime seems to encourage healthier living, and our bodies naturally shift into a detox mode. Early morning workouts are ideal before the summer sun gets too intense. As the weather begins to heat up, we can experience an increase in perspiration, which is one of the body’s ways to eliminate toxins. You will want to replenish yourself with light, hydrating foods that won’t weigh you down or make you feel sluggish. It’s a great time to adopt other practices to aid this process, however a detox doesn’t have to be limited to just the physical body. Here are 5 easy steps you can start incorporating into your day to help you feel vibrant inside and out!

    It’s sweatshirt weather and with that, in our part of the world, comes certain expectations. We know Starbucks is coming out with their pumpkin spice latte, we know we will start making plans for the holidays and receiving invitations to many events. The weekends start to book up and our yoga might take the back burner. Well for some people. I want to help you put your yoga on the platter for the holiday season. It can be your main gift, your way to show gratitude, and your way to celebrate. When we look at the roots of yoga, we find it is deliciously flavored with the flavors that we all love in the holidays, warmth, love, togetherness and celebration of the human spirit. I encourage you to check out a movie in theatres now cal...
