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!
All classes listed are "Faith Filled", "Faith Focused" or rather, pointing to Christ! Yahweh Yoga is the yoga school where I received my first nationally recognized certification way back when, and the style of yoga that is my specialty...feel free to check them out at www.YahwehYoga.com. Faith Flow (Vinyasa)- Beginner to Intermediate: All levels are welcome (yes, sweet beginner, that means you!), but participants must* be comfortable with moving from floor to standing and ba
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
Paddleboard: All SUP (Stand-up Paddleboard) classes are Faith-based unless otherwise specified or requested. Click here for PRICING and pre-scheduled, discounted paddleboard events, or to book your own class or private lesson. Paddle Basics:
This class teaches you basic paddling techniques, safety guidelines, knowledge of equipment and more! We jokingly say that I could "put myself out of business" with this class, as I set you up for a paddleboard lifestyle---you may never
“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

Ever wondered if you were "doing it right" when it comes to your Sun Salutation? (Hint: there is no one right way, but there is a way that is best for YOU.) Ever wondered why certain poses seem to be related to certain aches and pains? You love yoga and how it makes you feel better, but you are just not sure if you understand all the directions you are getting in certain poses? ---especially since some things maybe still bother you from time to time or still seem kind of myst
