40 Days of Yoga: Bonus Post

During Week Two of 40 Days of Yoga, I’ve been focusing on getting more vegetables in my diet. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as often as I can, I’m adding wilted, braised, steamed – you name it – dark leafy greens to my meal.

40 Days of Yoga: Day 14

My yoga practice is sacred to me. I realized just how true this was as I rushed through traffic on Day 14 trying desperately to make it to class on time (anxiety and desperation in the face of adversity – not very yogic, but that’s a topic for another day). Being in class on time … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 10

My entire adult life I’ve been a hyper-planner. Not in the sense that I have a plan that I stick to for everything, but I consider every possible angle of a situation and come up with every possible way to handle it, just in case. I’m beginning to realize just how little control I have … Read More

40 Days of Yoga: Day 9

I’ve been trying out a new meditation technique recommended by Baron Baptiste in his book 40 Days to Personal Revolution. This approach doesn’t just teach you to quiet your mind.

40 Days of Yoga: Day 8

As I think back on all the things I blogged and journaled about throughout Week One, I realize that my theme for the first week of 40 Days of Yoga was discovery.
