Let’s Talk About Accessibility

Thanks for all your good wishes prior to my recent surgery.  My leg is healing very well, and my lungs are…well getting there I suppose.  The big news is that I’ll be starting back to weight bearing in a few days!  After more than 4 months on crutches, my big job is maintaining reasonable expectations as I return to activity (I'm just so darned excited!).  ‘Easy does ..read more

Creating Community

Creating Community In Yoga Classes

Take a moment to think about why you go to a yoga class. Why practice with a teacher, in a room full of people, when you could stay home and pop in a DVD or scroll through YouTube for a practice? Well, for me there are so many reasons, including personalized instructions, feedback, hands-on support for your practice, spontaneous expl..read more

Doubt Your Doubts

An Invitation to Doubt Your Doubts About Being a Yoga Teacher

With two yoga teacher training programs coming up in the next few months, this week I’ve been fielding a few emails from teacher trainees who are dealing with some self-doubt. This is not uncommon, in fact the pre-course jitters are so common (to us all!) that I’ve written about this before: ..read more

Big News Yoga Trinity

Big News for Yoga Trinity

Hello Friends, Last month I mentioned that some big news was coming, and here it is. I’ve spent the past few months struggling with this…there has been a lot of reflection, a lot of processing, but ultimately, I know I have made the right choice. The big news is (drumroll please) we will be moving back home to Canada in 2018. Bef..read more

Managing Decision Fatigue

Managing Decision Fatigue

Mind Body Business - Managing Decision Fatigue

I’ve been reading a few articles lately about the mental load of housework, which certainly resonates (why do I need to always carry around, in my brain, the level of olive oil in my pantry?). It resonates even more as a business owner, where the mental load can sometimes be overwhelming.  Over the past 22 years of run..read more

Arts and Crafts and Yoga

I’ve recently had a Canadian visitor for a few weeks, and we got up to lots of fun travelling, exploring, wine tasting, and learning some arts and crafts.  It was a great way to connect and have some fun while she was in town, especially because she is very creative; a natural artist who is studying art in school.  I really admire her creativity.  I’ve always been in awe..read more

Consent Cards

This month I wanted to write about consent cards, but in my aim to get this news update out in a timely manner, I'll save the larger discussion for later. But if you are wondering what consent cards are, in brief, they are simple flip cards (paper, wood, etc) that each student places on their mat either in the Yes or No position to indicate their wishes to receive or not to rec..read more

Yoga Mat Tricks and Tips

The invention of the sticky yoga mat thirty years ago has made our modern practice of asana safer and more supported, and allows us to create a space for yoga wherever we go.  However, for all the wonderful things that your yoga mat brings to your practice, there are those little trifling issues that can take your mind off of your practice – when what we want our mat to do i..read more

Goodbye 2016…Hello 2017!

I’ve spent the first day of 2017 the same way I spent the last day of 2016, pottering around the house and talking to the dog.  So, in some ways it’s a bit hard to get overly excited about this new year.  But, in taking some time to reflect on the journey of the past year, I can’t help but feel grateful for all the great experiences I have had, the lessons learned, the ..read more

Sequencing for Routine and Variety

I had a great question this week from a recent yoga teacher training graduate about sequencing for her new classes, and it got me to thinking about how we sequence our own home practice each day, week, month, and year.  What informs our decisions about what to practice, when to practice, and how often we should do the same practice or how often we should change it up?  Whethe..read more
