How Yoga Has Helped Me In My Pregnancy

How Yoga Has Helped Me In My Pregnancy

Yoga has been my salvation with all the discomforts, pains or pregnancy. I hate it when some women tell me they “LOVE being pregnant”… I love having life inside of me but really hate feeling like I will throw up, having excruciating sacroiliac pain so bad I can’t even walk, having terrible insomnia, leg cramps so bad they wake me up at night and now feeling like I can barely get out of a chair.  Climbing stairs in my house is like scaling Mount Everest. I have been teaching less yoga these days… in the first half...

My Yoga Pregnancy Journey

My Yoga Pregnancy Journey

Just wanted to share something very personal here. Some of you that are on our Facebook or get my emails know that I am pregnant…. so now I am VERY pregnant… about 3 weeks to go before the goblin is supposed to come out and trick or treat on Halloween. This has been quite a journey.  Getting pregnant at my age required a commitment to changing my lifestyle to various holistic practices such as juicing, a liver cleanse, reducing my toxic load through the choices in my personal care products and diet.  I considered myself a healthy...

What Happens in Couples Yoga, Stays in….

What Happens in Couples Yoga, Stays in….

We usually start the class with a grounding meditation and some simple warm-ups.  We focus on breath, gratitude and intention in the beginning of class and I lay out a few guidelines for not pushing yourself or your part past their physical limits.  The second part of the class, we do some more active poses, some balancing poses and some traditional and classic yoga poses but that are done with a partner so even people that have done yoga hundreds of times before will come into a familiar pose in an entirely familiar way.  Then I will have a...

Yoga Music Reviews- Top 10 CDs I play in Class

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in Stuff I like, Yoga Music | 0 comments

In a yoga class setting up a vibe with lights, music and space is such a key part of the experience. It really takes you to a sacred place and I tend to get all bejiggety is my sound system is not working.  Whenever I am teaching at a new place or subbing I make sure to spend awhile understanding how their music system works (I’m not technically inclined and tend to panic when the music won’t start)  I tend to play the same 30 CDs all the time but I love picking up new ones all the time ( a few years from now this list will be very different)...

Farting in yoga class? What to do when this happens and how to prevent It.

Posted by on Jul 11, 2014 in Yoga Health, Yoga Teacher training | 0 comments

When I am just a student in the class and someone accidentally lets a noisy one out I giggle and laugh and look in the direction of the lethal missile.  Now that I do a lot of teaching and am not the student that often, when someone in my class accidentally lets one out, then I have to swallow my laughter and giggle and not even look in the direction of the explosion.  I remember one time, that this guy kept cutting his chakra cheese fairly audibly and we couldn’t all ignore it if we tried and he had to say “ Sorry, Excuse me”  a few times....

Stiff Neck, Tight Shoulders and Knee Pain – Jill Miller’s Yoga Therapy Tune Up DVDs

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 in Alternative Health, Yoga DVDs, & Podcasts | 0 comments

I don’t like to be a hypochondriac but I have been plagued with neck and shoulder pain for about the last 10 years.  I’ve seen countless doctors, practitioners, acupuncturists, healers, physical therapist, holistic doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, hypnotherapists, counselors, neurologists, dentists etc and was not able to get any long-term relief or manageability around this chronic pain. (I did sometimes get short-term relief but it was usually a few hours)  I’ve spent in the tens of thousands of dollars trying...

Being Bootylicious without being Broke – Natural Organic Beauty

I’ve been making my hottie hellenic hubby a bit wonky with all the natural beauty treatments I have been dabbling with lately.  He’s actually limited me to no more than one beauty experiment a day (what century are we in that our men can try to impose rules on us anyway?)  As I write this I am making my own rosewater from roses I plucked from our garden.  Here are some wallet-friendly beauty treatments that I have been experimenting with lately.  Most of these things you will probably have in your house anyway so no need to go out...
