I made this mistake so you don’t have to

IMG_36301My superhero days of invisibility are over.  I wish they weren’t.  Times of eating, drinking, and yoga’ing all day long now have consequences.  Damn.  Maybe it’s the fact that my body’s just not what it used to be.  It’s now in its 30’s, has grown and birthed 2 kids, and has carried me through any adventures or challenges I’ve thrown its way.

It’s that time again

yoga matTime to dust off and roll out the mat.  Time to set goals.  Time to get your diet back on track.  Time to start a new exercise routine.  Time to make changes.  Time to be disciplined about sticking to this new routine.

New Years can be both an exciting and daunting time.  The energy of everyone More

This really works

Sarah-3760As life gets busy and things get crazy, I’m reminded how much my yoga practice means to me.  Yes, it’s something that makes me feel good and maintains my health.  It’s all those things that fall under health, fitness, stretching, breathing, etc.  You know the list.

Getting a toddler excited about yoga

FullSizeRenderThrough months (although it seems like years) of trying to get my toddler son to do yoga with me, I feel as though I have finally discovered a way to get him to be excited about practicing with me.  I have put a lot of theories through the trial and error process and just one seems to work.  I’ve mainly been focusing my time on practicing ‘in front of’ (not always ‘with’) him in hopes that he’ll want to mimic what Mommy’s doing.

This only seems to work sometimes and the times that it does, he usually only joins me for a few minutes and then wanders back to his Hotwheels collection.  Ironically, after giving much thought and effort into ‘yoga’ing’ with my toddler, it was something More

You’re right. Here’s why THIS is the best daily practice.

FullSizeRenderEveryone talks about it, you may already be doing it.  You can write it down, talk about it, or simply think it.  However you choose to practice it, expressing gratitude is a wonderful thing to do each and every day.

“Make an attitude to be in gratitude.  You will find the whole universe will come to you.” -Yogi Bhajan

It’s about that time of year when we start talking about what we’re thankful for, but why not make it something we think about throughout the rest of the year.  Practicing gratitude fosters happiness and healing.  Can’t we all use some of that?!

Yes, we are all grateful for More

3 tips to always have perfect posture

100_5515You can learn a lot about people based on how they carry themselves- mood, attitude, emotional state, self confidence, physical strength, health and well-being.  As a society, we usually think of elderly people or people in poor health as those with rounded hunched over posture but in our current technology and automobile driven culture, we all seem to be a little More

How to keep it interesting

useWhen I’ve been at something for a long time, no matter what it is, it eventually gets stale.  Fun things can start to feel like work.  Even with my yoga practice, something that is usually the best part of my day, can sometimes feel like just something on the to-do list.  Usually when my practice starts to get ‘same old, same old’, it’s because I haven’t taken a new class in awhile (whether that’s in person or online).  It’s easy to get into a rut of practicing the same routine over and over again. I get so used to doing what I want that it’s actually nice to, More

Mindfulness and my challenge to you

IMG_36711I’m sure you’ve heard the latest buzz word in the health world lately- ‘mindfulness’.  You may even have tried to incorporate it more into your life already.  It’s a simple concept that’s hugely important for all of us.  Mindfulness basically means being 100% in the present moment whether you’re on a walk or doing dishes.  Focusing on your breath while More

Where I’ve been

IMG_1491After a several month hiatus from my old normal routine, I’m back and working at my new routine.  I took a few months off for the birth of my son Tyler, assuming the ole’ 6 week maternity leave would be just fine.  Little did I know, my body (and my toddler) had different plans for me.  Didn’t I learn the first time I became a parent that I don’t have much say in my schedule anymore?!

Turns out not all women have easy births.  Not all women are back at ‘it’ right away.  Not all women’s bodies feel normal after the 6-8 week doctor’s suggestion.  Not all women function normally on torturously little sleep.  Yes, I am one of these women.  I love my boys but I also love my sleep!
