40 Days of Yoga: Day 30

I’ve already admitted that I fell a bit off the meditation wagon. I’m only human, and that’s fine by me. I’d like to share an interesting lesson I learned on the road back. As I mentioned last week, I was feeling a little under the weather. Over the weekend it got a bit worse, and … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 29

After four weeks of regular yoga, meditation, journaling, and making friends with the divine inside me, I began to live in a space where I felt perfectly content and secure.

Confession: I haven’t been blogging every day. Those savvy readers out there who fancy themselves a little bit of a Nancy Drew or Hardy Boy may have already figured this out by reading the publishing date and time on each post.

40 Days of Yoga: Day 23

Of all of the aspects of 40 Days of Yoga, the part I struggle with the most is the diet. Considering my job, you may either find that incredibly ironic or very appropriate. I practically eat for a living. Yes, it’s all incredibly healthy and balanced food, but excess is excess. Each day I reapproach … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 22

Taking a bit of a break today. Interestingly enough, I learned that this week, Week Four, is all about Restoration. How appropriate. I look forward to the day when my body doesn’t need to force me to slow down, but when I can be aware enough to slow down before it becomes necessary.
