My goodness.  How time....does whatever time does. 
Is it flying or standing still? Or I am I just busy in my own little corner of the world, and everything else is humming along fast on the outskirts? 

Maybe you get that.  Maybe you don't.  It's ALL GOOD. 

You know why?

Because there is so much going on, for every single person reading this...good, not so good, scary, lovely, adventurous, mundane but needed...heartbreaking, inspiring...

Everyone reading this matters.  Every bit of your life. I want you to know that. 
And the others who don't happen to see this? They matter, too.

All are children of God.  All were born with purpose. 
This is not a political statement.  If you make ANY assumptions based on this, other th...

So, it's been about 6 weeks since everything changed in my own personal part of the world, but I know that time frame is different all over...

I have been meaning to share about my own personal yoga practice for QUITE some time, had grand ideas of blogging every time I try a new video or re-visit an old one, have even taken notes in anticipation...


but life. You know...that thing that happens in between sleeps? 

And I may NEVER get that part of the blog going. Or maybe I will. One thing has been certain during this time of uncertainty...


I have no idea what the future holds. 
(But I do know Who holds it! and thanks be to God for that!)


ANYWAY.

Rather than going back and catching up on 3-thousand & 7 things in this post, I am going to start with...

Guess What?

We can now connect via LIVE online classes-

as well as pre-recorded classes-

through my Youtube channel (a WEALTH of material there!)

and through Facebook!


(and if we don't actually "meet" on facebook, I will surely post links or ways there of getting to where we are "meeting"! 


I am working very hard to create online content for you in the areas of Yoga classes and tips, Guided meditation and tips, Health tips, Biblical Encouragement, and funny or fun things!

Just because sometimes we can't meet in person, does not mean we cannot practice together! 


As this post is being written during the COVID-19 crisis, allow me to remind you that we truly are all in this together!  And I would love to practice with you, right in your own hom...

Things heard:

It was so worshipful...

Being a business in the Midwest, and being a business that is about honoring people's real lives...there are times when class cancellations may happen due to weather issues, emergency issues, health issues, etc. 
We avoid cancelling as much as possible, but sometimes, it just has to happen based on those real life parameters. 

So, for the benefit and info of all, here is the Vessels of Clay Yoga Cancellation Policy:

Winter Weather:
If local schools are closed for Winter Weather, our classes will be cancelled as well---ESPECIALLY in the case of morning classes. 
If it is the odd situation where road conditions and weather were heinous only in the morning, but the sun shines high and bright throughout the day and road are declared clear by MODOT...


This series was designed primarily for those folks who have been wanting to try yoga, especially Christ-focused styles, but have been intimidated by the unknown of "what will happen when I show up? Will I be the only newbie? Will I feel silly or inept or ____?"

(Not just for beginners, but also good for anyone wanting to hone in on basics as well as teachers-in-training*)...



I totally get it. I do. And this series is born out of my desire to help those who have been telling me for YEARS that they want to get to a class, but something always gets in the way (which is especially easy if you have hesitations born out of subconscious "fear" or intimidation)---
and until you experience it for yourself, it is easy to let something like this slide, ri...

I have been asked this many times:

"can I lose weight doing yoga?"

Short answer is yes. Absolutely. 

In fact, I lost about 6 lbs in a month or so when I first started way back in the early 2000's...and for someone who is only 5'1.5", that is LOT!

Like, A. LOT. A LOT ALOT A LOT.

(see p.s. at the bottom...)

But guess what...there are things you need to consider.

1-How a yoga practice can help you "lay aside the weight" (Hebrews 12:1)

2-Consistency/Frequency of Practice

3-Type or Style of Yoga being practiced

4-The season YOU are currently in, and how it is affecting you and how God created YOU

First things first:


One of the amazing things about yoga---and right now I am referring to the physical practice or Asana practice of yoga, not the other limbs of...

“Yoga Teacher, what Yoga video do you recommend?”

I hear this a lot. (less formally, of course)  and I love that people trust me to tell them what I might suggest.

I usually start off by asking if they have ever done any yoga, and if so, what kind? What are their goals? What are they hoping for in “doing” a yoga video?

This will by no means be an all-inclusive list of what is in my personal library or of what else I might recommend that I have tried, but might have slipped my mind…but these are the ones on the forefront! So, without further adieu, let’s get to it—the sooner we know, the sooner we get to our mats!

I will divide this up into Beginner, Advanced, and Specialty…

Note: Most yoga videos on the market use certain alignment principles that ar...

Have you ever lost anything and wondered if it might ever come back to you? Have you ever asked God to return it? Have you ever felt lost yourself...like, in a MAJOR way? Guess what--you are normal, and there are some cool things you can do...
