These mental modifications are restrained by practice and non-attachment. -Yoga Sutra 1.12 I read this article one morning and realized that my practice fell off the band wagon. I've been a yoga teacher for about 9 weeks now and although half … Continue reading Balancing persistent effort & no expectation
Coming into Week 3, I seriously did not want to go back to work. Teacher training for 8 hours was a dream and I was surrounded lovely ladies with good vibes. It was tough to carry-on my teachers mantra this week, "everything is temporary." I tried to tell myself that work eventually ends...that it's only … Continue reading 200 YTT – Day 10-13 – Week 3 Complete
Tonight, Tasha, our teacher trainer, offered the mantra of "everything is temporary." No matter how much you try to fight this one, you know it's true. Good and bad things fluctuate throughout your day and you just need to breathe through it. The breath is constant. The breath sustains life. My practice tonight took that to … Continue reading 200 YTT – Day 9 – “Everything is Temporary”
Kapilina Beach was my distraction today. Believe or not during a walking meditation you should only be focused on your breath and your step. So it was challenging to walk along the shoreline and not notice the ocean washing over my feet. The sand was like a foot massage so that slowly helped me to … Continue reading 200 YTT – Day 6 – Walking Meditation
I wouldn't say this is a great morning yoga practice because you get a bit sweaty. Maybe on a weekend before you run errands, go shopping, or your kids soccer game. Anyways, Yoga with Adriene...she's a cool chick, but I had to look at the screen a lot to see what the heck she was … Continue reading Energizing yoga!

Yogi, Erin Motz, helped me start a steady commitment to yoga in her 30 Day Yoga Challenge. It kept me motivated in my practice. But there were some days that I totally missed, but it's forgiving because it's an at-home practice! Though, you should do every single routine to complete the challenge! You'll feel rejuvenated! I … Continue reading Looking to test your yoga commitment?
I've been MIA for almost a year and the reason is I thought I didn't have enough experience (rising and falling) to share on a monthly, weekly, or daily basis. This entry could be just light of the moment, but I hope to share more! Recently, my knees have been stiff. Whenever I run it's … Continue reading Yoga for tight muscles
It's the first time that I felt heavy during my practice and I know it's my fault. My eating habits went spiraled down starting off the day with oatmeal in vanilla almond milk for breakfast to a strawberry greek yogurt smoothie for lunch to popcorn and bread pudding for dinner. Some part of me told … Continue reading Feeling Heavy on the Mat…It’s My Fault
