What I Learned About Life from a Prenatal Yoga Book…

tumblr_mcmejpBZwu1qceubuo1_500I completed my 200-hour teaching certification just over two years ago this past January. As in most general 200 Registered Yoga Teacher trainings, we spent a very brief section of our time learning how to teach to pregnant women. Perhaps because I am not a mother, and have never been pregnant, I didn’t retain much of the information that I learned during that module of training.

Learning to Practice Yoga in Paris Without the Glamour

Learning to Practice Yoga in Paris Without the Glamour

lulu-om

I brought my yoga mat with me to Paris even though it cost me an extra forty bucks to take it on the plane. Sure, I could have just tossed the mat and gotten a new one in the city, but somehow that felt cruel. My mat had always supported me. Through work stresses, backaches, breakups, boredom and general life anxiety.

Happiness Starts with this Habit

Happiness Starts with this Habit

All(1)

We are taught at a very young age that it is our right to pursue happiness—and most of us try a little bit of everything all in an effort to become happy. We try making a lot of money; we try this or that diet; we get into this or that relationship; we serve this or that charitable organization—it’s all about happiness. Try thinking of something you’ve done because you wanted to be unhappy—it’s…

10 Ways to Find Peace

bigstock-Free-Happy-Woman-Enjoying-Natu-600w

1.  Get into your body. When we’re not feeling peace, it’s usually because we’re not feeling at all. We’re thinking. And we’re believing all these non-peaceful thoughts. We’re also feeding them with more energy.

  • So to stop feeding the thoughts, and feed peace instead, we drop away from the part of our brain in charge of thoughts and into the part of our brain in charge of physical sensation. Do…

Are you Still Growing? The Meaning of Intention

yoga-intention

“The only difference between a flower that is alive and one that is dead is that the live flower is still growing.”
~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

Intention is defined as setting an expectation for yourself, an expectation for your personal evolution. Going to yoga class helps us reconnect to our commitment to grow by giving us time to focus on our key intentions known as sankalpa. The consistency of the…
