I am no longer contributing to this blog. You can find my current writing in the following places:
The Passion Project, where I write about passionate people and the work they do.
Going Wherever It Leads, where I write about the hiking life and outdoor adventures.
This blog was created as a place to share my life experiences connected to my yoga practice. I don’t claim to know all the answers, but rather want to share my observations, revelations, struggles, little joys, and blessings as I travel down the yogic path. I hope to share my discoveries in the moment, as I’m exploring them, rather than from an expert’s point of view.
I am a yoga teacher, but firstly, a yoga student. I am certified in Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan. This is the yoga I’m most drawn to, but I also enjoy other forms of yoga. I believe in the power of positive thinking and visualization, a philosophy that informs my life daily.
Nature is a great teacher and continual spring of inspiration and rejuvenation, so sharing my findings and adventures in the natural world is part of my story as well.
I don’t pretend to lead a completely yogic lifestyle, because I do not, but I am moving towards one. Some days the movement is faster than others. It is definitely a lifelong journey. I’m not a pure vegetarian, but I do like to eat like one on most days of the week. Balancing life with a big-time bacon-loving meat-eater is a challenge at times, so sharing our compromises in the kitchen and a few good recipes is part of the plan for this space.
Welcome and enjoy!
I would also love to hear your thoughts on yoga, health, and what inspires your life.
