Surrending Control When Trying To Induce Labor Naturally

So now I am days away from my “due date”….. really hate that term….. feel like I am a carton of milk that is about to go bad by having a date.  Now when people ask when I am “due” I just say soon.   Never felt such discomfort in so many body parts in my whole life and I’m very used to  dealing with chronic pain most of my adult life.  Sometimes I feel like I can barely walk.  When I walk is with great effort, a huge lack of grace, balance and coordination…. qualities that yoga has helped me...

Does Yoga Help You Lose Weight? Videos, Tips and Poses

Losing your muffin top without ommmming.  A few years ago one of my co-workers said she can’t stand going to yoga class because she hates chanting om. She loved the poses but just hated that aspect of the class.  It made her feel uncomfortable. It made me think about why some people don’t feel yoga is right for them even if they know there are so many benefits to yoga. I turned to yoga over 15 years ago and it has been part of my lifestyle and life journey ever since.  I order and review all kinds of yoga products, DVDs, books,...

Ice Breaker Questions and Conversation Topics

What are ice-breaker questions and conversation topics for new engaged couples that they should ask each other? After all the googley eyes, cooing, cudding, smooching,  incessant texting did you ask more incisive questions about their beliefs, values about topics such as in-laws, finances,  how to vacation, savings,  thoughts about what religion to raise your kids,  how to educate your kids and if you wanted to live in the city, the suburbs or the countryside? You are probably aware that in many countries of the world engaged couples...

Healing your Mind and Body Through Thoughts

Healing your Mind and Body Through Thoughts

Illness in any form is nothing more than our negative energies choking off so much of our Life-flow that cellular damage results.   The body is not separate from the universe, so when we think a thought, the vibrations run through the body as well as everywhere else.  If those vibrations are in harmony with our body’s intrinsic programming for well-being and vitality, the the cells thrive. But if it’s negative energy we are projecting, the cells can’t remain strong enough and don’t perform as well. Without the high...

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

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….

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...
