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

Congratulations to grad Eli on her Active Communities Award

Congratulations to Yoga Trinity grad Eli Haski on winning the ACT nomination for the Fitness Australia Active Communities Award!  I first met Eli through my husband Chris and he told me about this amazing woman who was teaching fitness and movement class for those living with mental illness.  Eli undertook Trinity Yoga Teacher Training to add yoga to her programs, and has mad..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

On Work and Rest – Olympic Observations

I’ve been watching a lot of the Olympics the past few days and, like you perhaps, have been thinking about how much hard work, how many years of training, practice, competition, and mental preparation each athlete endures in order to perform at the highest levels of their sport.  But, what we might not realize is that just as much as their success is due to work, it is also..read more

10 Years – A Few Things I Have Learned

In a continuing discussion, I have a few more ideas to share about what I have learned after 20 years of teaching, and a decade of facilitating yoga teacher training programs. I hope you find this helpful! A few things I have learned: Know Your Core Values.  In March I talked a bit about core values and how, to me, a big part of developing a healthy and ..read more

10 Years of Teacher Training – My Own Journey

The past few months I have been celebrating my 10 year anniversary of facilitating yoga teacher training programs.  Last month I took some time to share some reflections on the changes I have seen in yoga in the past ten years, and this month I thought I would share a few ideas about my own journey this past decade. When I first started teacher training, I didn’t know wha..read more

10 Years of Yoga Teacher Training

Last month I celebrated 10 years of facilitating yoga teacher training programs and over the past few weeks I’ve spent some time reflecting on the past decade and all the experiences I’ve had, all the learning I’ve done (and had to do!), and all of the wonderful people I’ve met and shared with along the way. It has been quite a decade for me, and quite a big decade for ..read more
