Walking into a yoga studio for the first time is intimidating. I know – I’ve done it plenty of times! And I’ll let you in on a wild little secret: it doesn’t get less intimidating, even now that I’m a teacher. The general flow of class I like to think of yoga classes as a […]
A good (or not so good) yoga mat can make the difference between getting through your yoga class and truly enjoying it. As a beginner many people – myself included – just use the first free or cheap mat they can find. Spoiler alert: these mats are often thin, slippery, and not very supportive. Common […]
Let’s be real: there are a LOT of yoga retreat options out there. I’ve seen three in my Instagram feed today alone and they are all so different. Every yoga retreat is great in its own way, just like each of us. So, how do you find one that’s going to be great for you? […]
This summer has been quite frustrating in a lot of ways, one of them being the frequency and severity of my migraines. I’ve tried no less than 6 different preventive medications for them.

Last weekend, I sprained my foot by missing my last stair (going downstairs to feed Charm at 5:04 am…) and I have been in a boot ever since. I’ve also got crutches, or crunches as my dad and I used to call them, but I’ve been avoiding those like the plague. So this week’s planned […]

Hey, hi, hello, how ya doin…it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other! I clicked over to this site to find a post I started writing almost TWO MONTHS AGO before I started traveling. And it’s interesting to read the list of goals I set now that travel season is over and it feels […]
A couple of weekends ago, I was EXHAUSTED. I slept from 7 pm on Friday until 12 pm the next day, waking up only to feed my dog and myself. I had been pushing myself too hard, and my body was trying to tell me something. So I listened. I slept all weekend, ate what […]
