What Is Yoga?

Why hello there!  It’s been a little while since my last post (confession?).  I am not going to make excuses I am just going to accept that right now I am blogging when I can find the time.  And if no one is reading that’s okay.  But if someone is, well I’m glad you’re here and I’m still excited to share with you!

I was sifting through some old emails this week and found my Final from Yoga Teacher Training.  Part of my final was to write “What is Yoga?” to me.  I always find it’s an interesting experience to read my own writing months or years later.  I’m usually taken back by the wisdom that I can find in my own words when I read them after the fact.  Typically as I’m writing there is always a little voice in my head saying ‘this stinks.’ Maybe that’s a deeper conversation for a different post!

After reading my ‘What is Yoga?‘ piece almost a year later, I knew I wanted to share it.  It’s funny, it hasn’t changed all that much for me.  What brought me to yoga, kept me coming back, and ultimately led me to become a yoga teacher is still all the same. Here’s what I mean:

When I first rolled out my yoga mat three years ago it was out of the desire to try something new and add dimension to my exercise routine. After that first 90 minutes my curiosity was awakened. I knew I had to explore this practice more. Continue reading

5 Reasons I Want To Go To Wanderlust

Hi friends! Have you ever heard of Wanderlust Festivals? Well whether you have or haven’t I guarantee you will want to know about Wanderlust.

I’ve heard about Wanderlust since I started practicing yoga. Back then I thought it was a festival where a bunch of people who are really good at yoga go with their other friends who are really good at yoga. Everyone drinks green juice, stands on their head, and talks about their recent sabbatical to India.

Well the more I’ve learned about Wanderlust the more I realize it is SO much more than that. Wanderlust hosts festivals all across the country in magical places. I am so excited that this year I will be going to the Stratton Vermont festival as a Wanderlust Wayfarer (think brand ambassador).  I am over the moon about this opportunity.  I will be working with local studios and yoga teachers to spread the word about Wanderlust and even coordinating a pre-festival event!

***UPDATE: As an official Wayfarer for Wanderlust Stratton, I am pleased to announce that I’ve been given a special 10% Wanderlust discount code for my community! The discount applies to 4-Day, 3-Day or 1-Day tickets to Wanderlust Stratton.  To redeem, comment telling me you’d like the discount code.  I will email it to you and all you have to do is go to this link and enter the code.

Here are just a few reasons I am ecstatic to attend this amazing event:

10 Things I Learned in 2014

Wow, I can not believe another year is coming to an end. Boy was 2014 a whirlwind for me. It was for sure a transitional year for me that was exciting and scary all at the same time. I stepped out of my comfort zone quite a bit, and can’t believe where it has gotten me!

Before I jump into setting goals for the coming year I think it’s important to reflect on all of the things that were accomplished over the past 365 days. With accomplishments also come learnings. So I present to you 10 things I learned in 2014.
