The not so perfect yoga pose

Every week on social media I post a picture of me in a yoga pose and let my friends and followers know what my yoga theme is for the week. Every week I have a theme in my classes. The theme is a focus of the class. It’s a full well-rounded practice with a point. […]


Getting my calcium & vitamin D

The other day I had a doctor’s appointment to establish the new doctor/new patient relationship. As we discussed my health history my doctor (who I think is great) asked me what supplements I take. I told her I take melatonin to help with sleep. I also take Tums for the calcium. (I started taking calcium […]


Taking care of our feet with yoga

As a yoga teacher I teach and practice the same sequence for a week (as many of my yoga teachers do). The sequence I teach my students is the sequence I practice at home over the same week. And I usually like to have a theme each week, whether it is an anatomical focus or […]

Do you trust yourself?

Tonight in yoga the theme was trust. There are poses in yoga I don’t trust myself in. Like headstand and handstand. Years ago one of my yoga teachers told me she thought I was ready to try one of them. And I just didn’t feel ready. And years later I still don’t. I don’t feel […]


I earned my beer at the gym

One of our friends has lost 6 pounds by taking the class, is so much more tone and her booty looks amazing! This is how the In-Shape City site describes Total Athletic Conditioning: A full body workout with […]


Opening, balancing within

I attended my regular Hatha Yoga class with Baxter tonight. I really look forward to that class. He makes yoga fun while making us laugh. His class isn’t as intense as the other classes I take. But that’s OK. Variety is good. And don’t get me wrong, I am still working. Tonight Baxter asked us […]


Tree Pose

I have been doing yoga on a regular basis for almost two years. I normally practice yoga about three times a week. I have seriously come a long way. But the thing with yoga is you are always improving and getting better and stronger. I don’t know if you ever master it? Some might disagree. […]


Balancing

Eh, not so much. So today in yoga we focused on balance. I kinda hate the balancing poses. I get frustrated and impatient with myself. We did tree pose. One of my least favorite poses. I can’t even get my leg that high like in the picture. Balance is really important in a lot of […]
