Happy Hump-asana Day: Malasana / Garland Pose

Since there never seems to be enough time in the day, I’m a real fan of time-saving tricks and finding extra help anywhere I can, especially when it comes to house chores [although I think I just need to hire Rosie]… [now that’s my kind of housework!] If I have downtime at work, I make […]

Plight of the RYT [Rookie Yoga Teacher] – Part I

My teaching schedule just went from 0 – 60 in 4.2 seconds [which even beats out the Maserati I have in my make believe life. Whoa]. [Vroom] Last week was insanity and also every new teacher’s dream.

Happy Hump-asana Day: Balasana/Child’s Pose

Enter the ever so humble and gracious Hump-asana pose of the week: Balasana or Child’s Pose It’s hard to be ego-driven in child’s pose, so I think we can […]
