With the growing popularity of yoga, there are bound to be some misconceptions. Here are some of the most common myths and truths I hear about surrounding this wonderful practice…
With the current downsizing and minimizing trend, many of us are looking in our closets and wondering if we need all the clothing we own. For various reasons we’ve accumulated a few more items than we truly need. I’ve been going through all my clothing and making two piles. One pile is only for items that I absolutely love and wear. The other pile is for items in the following categories – Don’t fit. Don’t want. Don’t like. Don’t wear. (more…)
A few days ago my mother and I visited our town’s recently restored Scott Joplin mural and it got me to thinking: My goodness, we’ve come a long way. Once upon a time blacks were only seen fit to be nothing more than entertainers and servants. Even Scott Joplin, the father of ragtime entertained at places where other blacks weren’t even allowed. That’s just the way things were in the late 1800’s and people were used to it. (more…)
I breathe in and out, wishing to break my vow of silence and vocalize my feelings. I wanted to express my annoyance. I wanted to externally portray my happiness. I wanted to speak. (more…)
Happy winter everyone! I had my very first white Christmas. We had a few snow storms in the past few weeks leaving snow and ice all over. Big difference from the beach weather, which I am used to. I am loving the seasons changing so much. (more…)

During my weekly two-hour phone call with my best friend, we talked about the holidays, our jobs and other various changes we’ve noticed in our friends and our country. She works as a yoga instructor, so she spends a good amount of time public speaking during her Vinyasa and restorative classes. (more…)
I have been so busy these last few months! With holidays, the studio, my daughter, workshops, company, and pets! I was in need of a serious check in with my self. I found my self feeling very depleted, run down, and out of sorts. (more…)
I grew up a Trekkie. For those that don’t know the term, (shame on you) I was, and likely still am, a very big Star Trek fan. (more…)
Hello there! I hope everyone is gearing up for a great Thanksgiving! We are just kickin’ it local in Connecticut this year. I had a surgery about two weeks back (it wasn’t anything big) so I have been having to take it super easy. I overexerted myself putting the Christmas tree stand together and popped something gross and bloody open. Yikes! So since then I have been obeying the doctor’s orders lol. My comfortable lounge tops have been a lifesaver! The first few days after the surgery I just wore one of my husband’s pajama tops, but then I started feeling like I looked gross and it all went downhill. So comfy AND cute it is!
When you’re growing up there are always people telling you that life is hard, whether its your parents, your sixth grade English teacher, or your best friend. You respond with a casual roll of the eyes and thoughtless response like “Ugh, I know!” You swear to yourself that you will be prepared and have your life together. It’s so easy, right? And it isn’t until you find yourself twelve years later looking back and laughing at yourself for how naïve you were. (more…)

A few weeks ago I saw a groovy pair of non-organic tie-dye pants for sale online from a box store…large, well-known retailer. The price was great, the reviews were good and I decided to order them. I usually buy organic but thought I’d bend the rules for this purchase. A few days later the pants arrived. I opened the box to look at them and saw that they were enclosed in a clear plastic bag. The colors were beautiful and I quickly opened the plastic bag so I could try them on. (more…)
Hey friends! I hope you all had a fun & safe Halloween weekend! I don’t know about you but I am so happy October is coming to an end. The beginning of the month started out weird for me and nothing too exciting happened, besides watching the weather shift into its rainy season here in Oregon. October was my reflection month, I suppose. I moved here with my partner about a year ago and I’ve been reflecting on all the new memories we’ve created and how far we have come. (more…)
We are our own worst critics. When we fail we insult ourselves, when we make mistakes we scold ourselves, when we succeed we feel it’s still not good enough. This kind of negative thinking is absolutely destructive to our self-esteem and it can absolutely ruin your life. How can you change this? Treat yourself the way you would like the treated! (more…)
With the holidays just around the corner, my weekly phone calls with my sister and mom have lately focused around where and when we will find time to celebrate the holidays together. It might seem early, but it’s nearly one month before Thanksgiving and two months before Christmas. Wow! And it’s going to be here sooner than we think! It’s time to plan parties and gatherings, and take time off work. (more…)
Can you feel the crisp, autumn air? The mornings are getting chilly, maybe smells of chimney smoke, and falling leaves? Drinking hot tea to warm the core up. Meals are beginning to change too! Maybe, warmer foods, root veggies and soups! (more…)
