40 Days of Yoga: Day 28

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. In any event, I’ve been quite busy, and I got to a point where … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 27

I love having the ability to change my mind at any moment. I used to think of it as hypocritical  if I said one thing one week and then a completely different thing the next, but I now just see it as living in the moment and being aware of the impermanent nature of life. … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 26

I feel more fully aware of sensation than I can ever recall. I feel my gloves sliding across the tops of my hands and in between my fingers as I remove them after class. I feel the wood floor of the studio beneath me as each bone in my foot rolls down to meet it. … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 24

From a girl who’s started many cleanses and never seen any through to the end, I’m thrilled as all-natural fruit punch to say that the 40 Days of Yoga cleanse thus far has been a blast. The cleanse is a simple or as challenging as desired. Everyone was asked to give up the six foods … Read More

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.

40 Days of Yoga: Day 21

Ah, lessons. They never stop coming. Just when you think you’ve figured something out, the universe finds a way to show you there’s always more you can learn. Following my post about all the space and time I’ve found in life to balance responsibilities to my job, my family, and myself, riding that high and … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 20

Patience. Something I’ve been exploring during this week of equanimity. And something that has brought me great reward. After the gigantic realization that I tend to push myself too hard, courtesy of my injured hamstring, I learned the importance of backing off when enough is enough, and giving something the time and space it needs … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 19

As we breathe during yoga, we focus on how we can create more space in the body. We breathe space into our belly, space into our rib cage, space into our necks and shoulders, and space around our hearts. We fill all of these discovered spaces with prana, life force, so that we may have … Read More
