I WOKE UP LIKE THIS

I spent this last weekend in Austin, Texas at the first of seven weekends for yet another Yoga Teacher Training. Yes, seven. Yes, Texas. Yes, I do still live in Sacramento. . . California. Details. . . And, per usual, I learned lots of great lessons on my trip. Things like when making life complicated in … Continue reading I WOKE UP LIKE THIS

GUILTY

Guilt. Today I want to talk about guilt. Now, before you start packing your bags just sit down and chill; we’re not going on that kind of trip. . . at least not this time.

YOU CAN DO IT (PUT YOUR BACK INTO IT)

It’s that time of year again.  That whole “new year, new me” bullshit. Suddenly the gyms are full, yoga pants are legit again (as in, they are actually getting worn to a yoga class and not a coffee shop), organic produce deliveries are on the rise while the deep fryers of late night diners coincidentally … Continue reading YOU CAN DO IT (PUT YOUR BACK INTO IT)
