Just like riding a bike             Today on the way to school, my daughter Sienna (7) rode her bike ahead as Max (4)trailed behind with myself and baby Leo. He could not keep up. “my legs are tired, i am cold, i am hot, i am thirsty, i am itchy……..” The […]

Lots of changes have been happening for me lately and participating in the challenge has been perfect for helping me through and figuring things out. I recently left a job where I felt the environment had become harmful, it was a very difficult decision to make and I actually struggled through many months of worry, […]

I finished my teacher training and I would like to thank my wife for encouraging me to do it. It all started back in july when we challenged our selves to practice yoga everyday, quickly taking the place of my normal workouts. This last few weeks in teacher training I’ve learnt that there is so […]

I have been in Scottsdale for the past few days and enjoying the 106 degree heat! Did some one say hot yoga! Seriously, a person just has to stand there and you sweat! I have been rising very early to enjoy the best part of the day (88 degrees) and spend time with myself, enjoying […]

As we are approaching the 2 month mark of this wonderful journey, I have been reflecting back on the last few weeks, and how it all began for me.  In those 2 months I am so proud to know where I am at today with my journey and practice.  I stared out with a little….well maybe a lot of […]

It’s interesting. I decided not to engage in this 365 day challenge because I didn’t think I would have time to blog/journal (I blog for our studio, so it makes it even sillier). Totally lame excuse. I practice almost every day, meditate almost every day, breathe, walk my dog, write, etc. We have all heard […]

Since my last update I have been able to get in a few more active yoga sessions rather than just meditations. It is very exciting for me! This past week especially, has brought to me to find a love for acro yoga that is done with a partner. I didn’t realize it until I started […]

YOGA IS ABOUT THE POSES! Yesterdays practice was all about transitions; exploring the process without getting swept away by the goal. Todays practice had very little movement, no sun salutations, not vinyasa between postures, just long still holds. Each posture was held for 1-5 min depending on the pose. The work in each posture was […]

It has been crazy busy at my house and yet I have had some great meditation sessions. I love to do mini meditations as I call them. 10 minutes here or there. Closing my eyes and going inward while waiting for an appointment. Shutting out the noises and scents around me and and focusing on […]
