Get a Cup of Tea and Let's Hang Out Together!
Today, take a moment to connect to the Earth.
You know, that big, blue ball that floats through space?
The one we live on, but don't always give a second thought to?
Yeah, that Earth.
Connect with it today.
Earth day is coming and we need to realize that we are more alike with Her than we are...
Hello and welcome to a new Techniques Tuesday, where we'll be exploring Trikonasana, or Triangle Pose. Today is a second stage, where we go a little deeper.
As always, listen to your body, rest and modify as needed, and stop if you feel ANY pain. While this is a pose often used in yoga classes,...

They say patience is a virtue.
I don't know who "they" are, but I certainly have days where I am really lacking in that virtue!
Here's the thing, though; we really need to learn it, especially when it comes to ourselves and our goals.

Take a quiet moment for yourself.
Place a hand over your heart space and one over your abdomen.
Close your eyes if you are comfortable.
Whether you are seated or standing, notice how you feel.
How do you feel, right now, in this moment?
What emotions are...
Let's take a moment, just a moment, and breathe.
Sit for a moment, finding your comfortable seat, so that you are sturdy and grounded.
Relax your shoulders away from your ears.
Place a hand over your heart space, another over your abdomen.
Feel your breath as you breathe naturally.
Hello and welcome to a new Techniques Tuesday, where we'll be exploring Trikonasana, or Triangle Pose. Today is a beginner modified version in a standing pose, but in future variations, we will explore also a seated chair version, so stay tuned over the following weeks for information on that as...

We've all been there.
We know what we *have* to do.
Maybe we even *want* to do it.
But we get caught up in the "how's", "why's", "what-if's", "when's".
We get so caught up in the nitty-gritty, and trying to make it all "perfect", or waiting...
We continue our exploration of a hips and shoulders opening flow this week, with a level 3 variation. This is the "most advanced" variation of the gentle flow we started 2 weeks ago. For more modifications, be sure to check out last Tuesday's post for Part 2, or the previous Tuesday's...
It's a new week - how will you make the most of it?
I don't mean by "being productive" in our society's sense of the word, where you judge your worth by your hustle or productivity or sales.
I mean, how will you make the most of your week with YOU?
Move your body at least 10...
Happy Saturday! Hopefully this is a day off for you (if not, re-read this on your "Saturday", whatever that is for you!), and I hope you are enjoying being in the present moment, at least a little bit.
Take a breath.
Let your shoulders drop from your ears, belly soften a bit.
Close your eyes.
So I've had this recipe floating around my house for a few years, and every time someone comes to my house I make it.
Because Every. Single. Person. LOVES IT.
It's easy, affordable, non-caffeinated, no-sugar-added and incredibly delicious. Great for staying hydrated any time of...

Really, the caption in the image says it all.
We rush through life, producing, hustling, rush, hurry, grind, cram.
Then we get to the end of the day, the week, or finally to our vacation and what happens?
We crash and burn, baby.
