“Dad, You’re Free”

My dad’s declining health and his temper tantrums made me angry. Why was my emotion of anger? Because I felt like he didn’t care about himself enough. Because he should have eaten better.

Undivided Attention

Have you ever spent time around someone and felt as though they weren’t actually ‘there?’ Their body is physically beside you, but their mind is mentally somewhere else.

Check Yo’ Self

Hey, fun fact: I am a yoga teacher and still wouldn’t label myself as ‘flexible.’ I haven’t been able to do the full splits since I was about 10, my hips don’t like frog pose, my hamstrings have been killer tight, my range of motion within my pelvis is larger than 90 degrees (sitting on …

Hold on. Let Go.

Yoga, much like life, is a balance of holding on and letting go. Sometimes, we are thrown into the pits of darkness and we have to find our way out of it. But, remembering to breathe through the hard parts and asking ourselves what it is we fear that keeps us holding on, will help …
