Lessons from Spain

As many of you know (gah I won’t shut up about it–I know), I recently returned from a sweet couple of weeks in Spain.  When people ask me how the trip was and how coming back has been, my consistent response has been, “honestly I feel like I have whiplash.”  Sure, I...

Holiday Burnout | ‘Tis the season

We’re in that crazy time of year when all of the holidays, celebrations, parties, and family gatherings seem to collide and pile up. We’re going from this event to that event and burning our candles at both ends until we just completely exhaust ourselves. We’re...

Holiday Stress + Noticing Patterns through Yoga

With some space between myself and holidays at home along with the massive amount of time I had to myself in 2020, I discovered some things… I don’t actually hate this time of year at all. Sure, I prefer warmer weather, but there’s a lot about the cooler weather that...

It’s Vata Season! Wait…what’s that mean?

It’s Vata Season! Wait…what’s that mean?

Fall is officially upon us! The leaves have changed and have begun their descent to the ground. Like nature around us, we might be looking at the things we need to release before we move inward for the winter. I have heard so many of my students say that they felt...

Whoa! A Blog?!

Whoa! A Blog?!

That’s right. I’m starting a blog. Can you believe it? No?! Well buckle up… For those of you who follow me on social media, you might have noticed that I’ve taken a big step back. I’ve never been a big social media person for a multitude of reasons and didn’t have any...
