Spring Forward 2017

It’s that time again to Spring Forward (Sunday at 2 a.m.). Twice a year I write about time change. (Read last year’s Spring Forward post here.) I have never been a fan of time change. I don’t get the point of it. I grew up in Arizona where time change doesn’t occur. I say, let’s Spring Forward and […]


a.m./p.m. yoga

Over the past week my yoga theme was a.m./p.m. yoga. One of my yoga students recently asked me if I could teach poses that could be done first thing in the morning and some poses that could be practiced right before bed. What a great idea!

The second week Curt and I headed to Amsterdam with our friend Jacob. The past two weeks I have enjoyed my […]


Taking an inward journey

On Saturday in my all-day teacher training class we focused on meditation. I think meditation is an important part of yoga practice and frankly, life. But I don’t have a regular mediation practice on my own. I can barely get in my 30-minute home yoga practice five times a week. Mary, who taught class on […]
