Focus

In our modern life, there are distractions everywhere and our brains are busier than ever before. Our lives are full of gadgets that ding, buzz and beep to get our attention, we’re bombarded with facts, pseudo facts, chatter, rumors, all posing as important...

Openness

When we close ourselves off to life in any way, we create stress for ourselves. We’re all doing it on some level: in our bodies, we clench and tense, which prevents steady breathing and in turns causes some level of panic in our minds. But there’s good news! This...

Inner Strength

The ability to face challenges is essential for your happiness. The key to this is to see any obstacle as a source of opportunity and growth. In practice, when you breathe through a challenging posture you gain endurance, and learn to be stronger when facing...

Restore

To restore is to mend or rebuild. Our body does this work during states of deep relaxation. The repairs and reconstructions that happen during the relaxation response counteract the effects of chronic stress, where a natural physiological response is in overdrive and...

Balance

Here’s what I want you to know about balance and trees, and how it applies to your daily life. First, is that trees dig down to rise up. Think about it, if a tree didn’t have a strong system of roots, it couldn’t grow upward and outward and still be strong. And in our...

Self Care

Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. When you care for yourself, you cultivate feminine energy and are better able to calm, nurture, create, connect, and receive. Self-care is essential...

Intention

Today, we practice to be intentional. Your intention is the value that is most important to you, not just a thought or statement, it is your way of being that is guided by your highest truth. Keep it simple and think of it as the inner attitude you choose for...

Routine

Your routine is composed of habits that have been repeated so many times they’ve become almost unconscious. In other words, you don’t spend a lot of mental energy deciding to do these things, and how to do them is so ingrained, your mind probably gets busy thinking...

Surrender

In yoga philosophy, surrender is a powerful practice for ending the inner struggles of the mind. Surrender shifts you from a narrow, individual perspective, which often wants things to be different than what they are. Surrender remedies a sense of separation from the...

Stress Relief

When we're experiencing a state of inner chaos, an effect of the stress response is that our muscles tense up in preparation for fighting or running. Simple yoga offers a way to settle and release tensions thereby relaxing the nervous system and relieving stress....

Mindfulness

The purpose of yoga is to unite ourselves with our highest nature, which begins with noticing and deep listening. Mindfulness is noticing what is going on within ourselves without judgement. This is important because judgement prevents the deep listening that is vital...

You cannot stretch your muscles.

This may come as a huge surprise (especially coming from a yoga teacher), but the fact is muscles are not elastic and we can’t make them longer by stretching. (!?!) When you pull on a muscle, as you do when you’re stretching, if you’re lucky, nothing at all will...

How to integrate stress-relief into your everyday life.

I've shared a practice I call Pause N.O.W. (Read about it here.) If you’ve ever been my client or in one of my group yoga classes, you’ve heard me teach that your practice does not have to be something you try to do separately from the rest of your life....
