Summer Solistice

Solstice-1000x330

Today marks the beginning of the Summer Solstice, or Litha, in the Northern Hemisphere. The summer solstice is the longest day of the year- and the shortest night-where the northern pole of the Earth is pointing the closest to the sun as it will all year, before reversing its position heading back into the wintertime. It marks the height of warmth and sunshine, where summer fruits and vegetables are in full bloom and ripening in the heat. Litha, an ancient celebration of the Summer Solstice, is being widely celebrated today by people of many backgrounds and belief systems – so feel free to participate no matter what your beliefs are!

Or maybe you attend regular studio classes. I love practicing all of the above, but before I attended Yoga Teacher Training, I was frustrated that I couldn’t practice yoga “alone.” I craved that quiet, comfortable time with myself that a solo yoga practice brings- without other bodies around, or someone instructing me. I wanted to be the teacher and the student, in one. I wanted just me, and my mat. Continue reading “Creating An At Home Yoga Flow”

Yoga Wednesday: Wheel Pose

Yoga Wednesday: Wheel Pose

This weekend, I spent a magical time up in Sedona, practicing yoga and enjoying the company of my husband. We ventured to the top of a vortex in the area, onto some beautiful, flat red rocks overlooking the entire city and other red-rock sculptures. The
energy on top of this vortex was so wonderfully powerful, we couldn’t help but just lay Continue reading “Yoga Wednesday: Wheel Pose”

Yoga Wednesdays: SunBird (Chakoravakasana)

Happy Wednesday, my friends! I sure hope that by now, you’ve set your wonderful New Moon intentions for the new phase tonight and have begun to meditate upon it. As for ┬áme, my New Moon intention is to find that inner stillness that I feel I have been lacking as of lately. I’ve been so busy trying to build and create what my heart is telling me is my purpose, that I have neglected that inner stillness I am craving. What’s your intention for the Moon?
