a season of change

Changes are coming. Life is often times like a fire. Things start out cool...gradually get warm, then, the heat turns up. The flames start to ignite. Sometimes, you are in control. Sometimes, you aren't. I am ready to try my hand at being in charge of the fire. love+light

Ladies, really?!?

What are we doing to one another, as women? Body shaming, self loathing, not loving ourselves for who we are? I have heard so much negative talk about women and their own bodies lately. I hate that we do that to ourselves and others... Cellulite, yeah, I've got it. You probably do to. It's completely … Continue reading Ladies, really?!?

no wonder people are afraid to try yoga!

Ok, I am becoming overwhelmed with all of these insane posts on social media with people doing asana (postures) in ridiculous places. I mean, really?!? Why are you doing handstands in the street?

Summer has finally arrived, yet the day outside you were planning...is on a rain delay. What to do, what to do? Let's meditate! Ok, the exclamation point was a bit much...but what better time to focus on your inner self, than when we are stuck inside? Personally, I (occasionally) love a rainy day. It almost … Continue reading rainy day meditation
