What is Vinyasa yoga? How do you know if you would benefit from a Vinyasa yoga practice? Where can you find a Vinyasa yoga class? Hopefully I can answer these questions in this post. And share a little of my experience with this dynamic yoga […]
So many of us make new year’s resolutions and then wonder why we don’t see them through. We make plans, we join the gym, fill our Pinterest boards with all the healthy food we are going to eat, the cute new clothes we will buy, […]
So I have finally returned to this blog, after an eventful summer. Since last I wrote, I have taught to hundreds at an anime convention, I have held multiple aerial yoga classes and workshops, and I have completed my teacher training in vinyasa yoga. […]
When my yoga teacher challenged the class to pick a Yama (Yamas are part of the ethical code of yoga) to work on, I picked Aparigraha instantly, because I felt I needed it the most. All my life, I have been that person who picks […]
Not gonna lie, I am a weenie when it comes to Chaturanga. So I made this challenge for myself in the hopes that I would overcome my negative vibes this pose.
“Four-Limbed-Staff-Pose” or Chaturanga, is a deceptively challenging pose. What seems like simply a pause in a push-up becomes more as you turn your focus to the key points: hand placement, core activation, and leg strength. This pose will strengthen your arms (particularly the triceps), shoulders, and legs. It prepares your body for inversions. Yoga Journal has a great article on the finer points.

Happy March Heroes!
I just wanted to drop a list here of books I am currently reading, and books I highly recommend for further inner hero development and exploration.
I know that there is some fiction mixed in here, but these particular novels, in my opinion, are more than just fluff reading. They show us heroes and villains, fleshed out, with flaws and virtues not available to show in movies or even television shows. There are a lot of lessons in life that are learned by the characters of fiction, and we go along with them and learn these lessons too.
What books do you recommend for the hero’s journey? Send me a message and I’ll be happy to respond!
