At least, for me, it is. The Heart is something that is I am personally working on. After my Chakra training in Italy, I realized that my biggest block in my own life... is in my heart Chakra. In the course, I identified that while there was still some residual work to be done in … Continue reading The He❤rt of the Matter
No selfie pics here - just the selfie Chakra! Time to get in your own head- or I should say, gut. We're on the third Chakra- Solar Plexus. Quick Recap: Each post, I am posting about the individual Chakras. Each Chakra has a color, location, sense, element, Sanskrit translation, bodily systems, health issues due to … Continue reading Selfie
Hmmm.... Money on the mind? Fertility or sex issues goin' down? Over emotional? Wanna control everything? Weird, but they are kinda related. Well, it's time to check out your second Chakra: Sacral Chakra. (and btw, I get that the phrase is 'sacred ground'. I couldn't think of a clever title, although I would argue that … Continue reading Sacral Ground
The title of this post is a bit misleading... if you are looking for the band whose hit Send Me on My Way became an anthem for 90's sorority girls everywhere, then I apologize. Today's post is continuing along my current theme of Chakras- and today: Root Chakra. Each day, I am posting about the … Continue reading Rusted Root
Sorry, I couldn't think of a witty, creative title today. I've been wanting to write about Chakras ever since I returned from Italy. Or at least I think I have because I have been sharing my experience with Chakra training nearly every day since I've been back. I am also 90% sure that 90% of … Continue reading Chakrapalooza
Self-Realization 7: I Am Selfish
Damn, I said it. I realized this when I was skipping through The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali. My last posts were on the topics of Life and Love. Today: Yoga (although to be fair, this also crosses into the life and love realms too). So I bring it on back to good ol' Pantanjali. … Continue reading Self-Realization 7: I Am Selfish
My Mind is Blank
I have been writing nearly every day (there were a couple of days in there I skipped, or if I was on vacation, I didn't contribute as frequently) since April 2012. I have had that many ideas free-flowing in my head for a while now. And last night... nothing. Today, I thought I would sit … Continue reading My Mind is Blank
I’m A Yoga Chick (sort of)
I spent an afternoon talking with my friends yesterday about yoga and yoga retreats. They seem to think there's a pattern emerging among unhappy, lost, insecure, thirty-something women in Lululemon pants all gravitating toward yoga and yoga retreats. They truly believed that this description is the epitome of a "Yoga Chick" and, very accurate. I … Continue reading I’m A Yoga Chick (sort of)
As I drove up to my yoga studio last night, I realized there was a full, amazing (and kinda creepy, dingy looking) moon right in front of me. Of course, my glorious iphone5 couldn't capture the image at all, so I had to sear it to my memory. It also reminded me that 1) Halloween … Continue reading Mooning
Yoga. From a Third Grader.
I love it when people have all the excuses in the world for not wanting to try yoga. I also love Amy Poehler, so that is what makes this video extra special. Amy has a web series called Smart Girls at the Party- which is right up my alley. As a former Marching Band member … Continue reading Yoga. From a Third Grader.
