Setting Up a Home Yoga Practice

March 05, 2019

I have heard countless times, “I wish I were disciplined enough to practice at home.” To which I reply, “unroll your yoga mat, start there.” REALLY! Place your mat in view and intentionally create space for practice to be a possibility. Second, move intuitively, use your practice to get to know YOU. Much like meditation, many people get hung up on needing their home practice to be perfect, rather than needing it to be real. Keep it simple, set a timer for 20 minutes, put on music if you’d like, move your body and breathe.

Chi

October 15, 2019

What I love most about language is its living eternal nature, which transcends the strongest boundaries of time and space. Words are, by their intrinsic nature, timely, limiting, and rigid constructs clumsily attempting to express the ineffably eternal. Chi is one of these words.

Autumn, when the sun is hot and the air is crisp. The third season of the year, when crops and fruit are gathered, and leaves blow in the wind. A spectacle of vibrant colors set the foliage ablaze as summer transitions into winter. Crunch! Delight beneath my feet.
