(back to HOME) Guess What? We can now connect via LIVE online classes in 2 ways: 1) through Zoom... As of January 2022, we started with a few "Very Beginner Friendly" Gentle Flow classes on Fridays at 11am, and as schedules flex and change, we are currently doing Pop-Up Yoga classes (of various styles/levels) whenever we can! Wanna know when the next one is? Be sure to subscribe to the VOCY (Vessels of Clay Yoga) newsletter--you can do that from the Home page-- and follow o
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...

The Yahweh Yoga teacher training has been 5-star rated for all of those years, with triple digits of favorable reviews. The hard work that has gone into this curriculum has earn
Christian Yoga: is it ok, or not? I get this question a LOT. Or, I have folks asking me for insight about it. *Recently, another friend asked me to watch a video she had just seen on a news program, about an article written against yoga as Christians, and I thought: “why have I not shared this in a public post, rather than just one-by-one incidences?” This is taken from that latest interaction*… (*Note: this post falls under the "From the Archives" category, meaning it is a s
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 m
I have been asked this many times: "can I lose weight doing yoga?"

Happy Labor Day Weekend, ever'body!!!
In one of my devotional studies this year, God revealed to me that our true "labor" should be laboring to enter into His rest. The rest that He provided through the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. And did you know that before Jesus went to the Cross, He bequeathed to you and I who follow and believe Him, HIS Shalom? Shalom in Hebrew is not just a greeting like Ciao, or Aloha...its meaning goes deeper. It means Welfare/Well-being, He
