So, you know how in classes I always say “We’re all human and can do what we can do”? Well, time for me to take ownership of being human and totally not following through on posting my playlists and readings lately! I know that I tell you not to judge yourself or apologize for being human, but I’m going to come right out an apologize because in my humanness, because I promised you guys I would post my playlists and readings weekly and I didn’t follow through. So I am sorry. And I am back – posting the playlists and readings as promised! Thank you for understanding that I’m human…and a human with a very busy little kid at home!

Hearing from and being in the presence of such passionate and inspired people really impassioned and inspired me. The weekend helped me to remember an important thing I often forget: reality. continue reading »no comments
A few weeks ago, I shared a self love poem by Charlie Chaplin in my yoga classes. Many of you fabulous yogis and yoginis asked for copies of it and I promised I would post it to my website. A few weeks behind, here it is! continue reading »no comments
Many of us respond by getting stressed out, frazzled, upset, overwhelmed. What does that lead to? Tension in the mind, tension in the breath, tension in the body, tension in words, tension in actions, tension in relationships. YIKES. continue reading »no comments
Just gotta keep on keepin’ on, that’s what I say.

Happy New Year, folks! A new year is exciting and inspiring…and as I sat down to create an exciting and inspiring class/theme for January 2, I realized that there are two things about a new year that I don’t like: (1) the phrase “new year, new you” and (2) resolutions. continue reading »no comments
