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 wi
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!
UPDATE DUE TO COVID-19 CRISIS:

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 earned them respect in both the yoga industry and the Christian community. Are you being called? Maybe
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?"
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

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
