Roll to Relief

24 August, 2016 | Posted in Yoga Tune Up®

When I first began practicing yoga 15 years ago, I was a young, enthusiastic, ex-athlete looking for a practice that could replace the hours spent running up and down a basketball court. A friend suggested I try some myofascial release using the Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls. The relief (and release) was immediate.

Love Letter to Meditation

Love Letter to Meditation

17 August, 2016 | Posted in Lessons from the Mat, Meditation + Philosophy, Workshops + Retreats

In a few weeks, I leave to sit in silence for a 3-month meditation retreat. I'm not gonna lie, I'm a little anxious at the thought of being away from everything I know that brings me comfort. Something that helps ease my anxiety is reminding myself why I signed up for this retreat in the first place. It doesn't take me long to remember how much I love this practice, and so this is is my love letter to meditation.

Sitting Comfortably

Sitting Comfortably

07 September, 2015 | Posted in Meditation + Philosophy

As I continue to approach my meditation practice with enthusiasm, I find myself leading more and more meditation sessions in class, conference, or workshop settings. In these settings, the most common deterrents to beginning a meditation practice I have noticed are not knowing how to: 1) Sit comfortably; and 2) Guide oneself through a meditation session. As a result I break down these two obstacles below in the hopes that it’ll make things more accessible.

Is Meditation for You?

Is Meditation for You?

01 September, 2015 | Posted in Meditation + Philosophy

Meditation is a practice that encourages staying in the present moment with awareness. Through this awareness, you learn to see your thoughts without reacting to them. Imagine yourself lying in the grass one sunny day, gazing up at the clouds, and after seeing a cloud that you really liked you got up to run after it. A little absurd, no? Meditation teaches us not to run away with our thoughts, regardless how pleasant or unpleasant they are.
