We hear about it all the time … the magic of being grateful, how gratitude is the best attitude, or some other iteration of sage wisdom we might choose to carry with us for an injection of inspiration to get us through the days. But have we really put our finger on the pulse of … More The State of Grateful
Inner dialogue. You know it all too well. The conversations you have with yourself. Minute by minute. Day in and day out. The exchanges you’ve been entertaining ever since, well, you can remember. But do we really know it? Are we truly clear on how drastically the way we interact with and relate to our … More Acceptance arrives with a quiet mind
Let’s talk about breathing. Seems like a no-brainer, right? We are alive, we must be doing it. And this is fine, if you want to stop there. But you don’t. Because that’s surface, and you’re up to something bigger … we all are … even if we don’t know it. But the key is TO … More breath
We’re short on time, short on quiet and short on stillness. The modern day way is full of gifts, including technology and instantaneous results, but also full of pitfalls if we don’t give ourselves a moment – actually, lots of moments. Being “booked up” and “scheduled out” seem to be the norm these days. Between … More Motion, Moments and Movement
Through the practice of yoga, both on and off the mat, we set ourselves on a course to access greater ease in life.

Times when I feel that I have shown up short of my potential, when I could have said something better, done something better, behaved better overall. Spaces where I could have … More Be Better? Just Be.
Not sure whether it’s the days being so damn short, or my schedule being so damn full, but December has been a complete blur – much more than normal. Birthday, come and gone. Christmas, said and done. New Year, no thanks! Becoming more deeply aware of the blur this holiday season, however, has really been … More What’s Possible In Stillness?
Just like we all instinctively know what we need to do to take care of ourselves on our yoga mats, maybe push ourselves a little harder one day or take it a little easier on ourselves another day, I knew I needed to really dig-in to my mom’s home cooking this holiday. After all, there … More Reset. Restart. Recharge.
We cannot be kind to ourselves, love ourselves, unless we know ourselves. The realization came to me smack in the middle of savasana (yes the time we are meant to clear our minds – doesn’t always go that way, does it?) following a power infused yoga class. The scene was hundreds of yogis buzzing about … More Finding Kindness
