Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.

Rock painting adventure update. It’s really satisfying. I’ve spent my whole life painting pretty large canvases, and it never occurred to me how satisfying it would be working with these intricate designs such a relatively small surface.

However, I grew pretty frustrated with mother nature‘s inability to produce perfectly symmetrical rocks, so I started making my own! Mixing the cement and pouring into molds. It’s actually really easy. Who knew? OK, probably a lot of people knew. But I had no idea.

Usual teaching schedule this week, hope to see you on the mat!

See @andreharrisyoga we’re #handstandscorpion twinsies! 😂 May we never stop trying to touch our toes to our buns, and never stop experiencing the joy of the journey, whether they end up touching or not. ❤️❤️😘 ...

I’m not someone who has many idols in life. I never have been. Not sports stars, certainly not actors, not celebrities of any kind. I admire people, but I’m just not someone who has heroes like that. I wasn’t the teenager who lived for some rock star (ok, maybe Robert Smith from the Cure 😬). But for some reason, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, captured my attention when she rose to the Supreme Court. Her belief that equality is non-negotiable, resonated. She understood that our constitution is a living document, and that it necessarily needs to evolve and expand so that we can create “a more perfect union,” as stated by the founding fathers. When it was written, women couldn’t vote. African-Americans weren’t even considered a full person. She believed that part of her role in the supreme court was to take a phrase like “all men are created equal “ and apply it to ALL. OF. US. Women, LGBTQ+, people of color... All of us. The idea that her voice is about to be replaced with one that is polar opposite, makes my stomach turn.

That brings me to this wall. It’s the wall I face when I’m sitting at my desk in my office. It has been an empty space for years, as I have struggled with the decision of what to paint for that spot. When RBG passed away a few weeks ago, I knew it had to be her. I knew that having her in my office, would give me endless inspiration to live life with compassion and a steady moral compass. The quote reads, “Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

This seems like the perfect week to get it done.

How is it Thursday already? This week has flown by! Hope you had a good one! I sure did. Work is busy, but I just finished a couple of big projects so it's a relief to get them off my desk 🙂 woot! Just taught my last live class of the week.

This is my weekly IN PERSON STUDIO class schedule @longevita. Classes are limited to 5 people, which is pretty amazing - you get a lot of personal attention from me (for better or worse 😉 ) better, if you're trying to make real progress in your practice, BUT, they've been selling out pretty quick lately. Grab your spot.

I really love Sundays. It's been a great weekend. I spent the day yesterday leisurely shopping with @rebemfras and eating a silly amount of sushi. I also spent a fair amount of time painting these little mandala rocks. It's been a while since I've painted something other than a wall 😉 Sometimes I get so caught up in my work as a web/graphic designer, creating for other people, that I forget how much a need to remember to make time to create for myself. Add to that, a full teaching schedule, a couple of kids, and a dog my (poor husband doesn't even make the list), and before I know it, months and even years can go by without picking up a paint brush.

Getting ready to paint a pretty big piece of art for my office and I'm excited to share it when I'm done. Hope to see you on the mat this week. Here's my schedule:

I said I was excited about sweaters and boots, I didn’t say anything about pants. 😬 about to trade in my boots for some running shoes though and hit the sunshine. ☀️ ...

Anyone else excited that fall is here? I just love it. Bring on the boots 👢 and sweaters 🤩 (it’s all about fashion) 😍 ...

It’s a good day to ask yourself this question. #wwrbgd? Have a great day! ...

Sunday morning vibes. May your day be filled with belly rubs and love. ❤️ #rescuedismyfavoritebreed ...

Ok, I found this funny. Thanks @artsymom73 So much heavy shit going on right now. A little humor. In related news, I think this account is going to be a little more representative of my life, which encompasses more than just yoga. I will for sure lose a lot of followers, but I’m cool with that. In a world full of fake news, I’m craving authenticity. Including my own.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend and remember, it’s probably not a UFO. 👽

Not gonna lie, it was pretty great to be back in the pool today. 💕 First time since it closed in March! ...

I've been the absolute worst with social media lately! I think I'm averaging 1 post a week. I'm feeling a little over it, to be honest. I've had a lot of work on my desk for my day job (as a web designer) and every moment I spend looking at a screen on top of that feels like a chore. And even though for the most part I have kept my IG community free of politics and full of yoga, I'm still wary of social media. If I didn't have to promote my classes online, I would take a looooong break entirely. I also notice in myself, when I am feeling stressed, a desire to keep my personal practice personal. Thank goodness all of you don't feel that way because I LOVE looking at your yoga posts! But, I just find myself deliberately not filming at all beyond the online classes that I teach. Maybe that low grade persistent stress of covid, quarantine, the fires, my dad dying and not being able to have a memorial or see my family... all of it, is finally getting to me a little. So, I'm sorry for being so disconnected. I won't promise to be better or post much more because I don't think I will for the foreseeable future. Then again, maybe tomorrow I'll wake up and feel totally fine! Fingers crossed!

Anyhoo, my schedule for the rest of the week:
