If you've been following along to the acro yoga series, you'll be happy to know we are back with part five. In this tutorial we cover straddle bat, which is where the flyer is upside down, perched on the base's feet. It's not as hard as it looks, although we had some laughs getting out of it. You sort of feel like an acrobat or something doing an assisted back flip out of it! Haha.Read More
An international yoga instructor writes a healthy living blog with an emphasis on yoga.
As part of my partnership with Kohl's for their #MakeYourMove campaign, I've been working on a few spring goals. One of the goals is to take better care of myself, so I've started rolling out my muscles before and after workouts. I've found it a nice way to warm up the muscles, work out any kinks and tension, and to prevent injury.Read More
Ok who's up to talk shit?
Just kidding, I just really wanted to use that pun! They're kind of running through my head today. 'A stool for your stools' is another one I had going. No? No one else is cracking up except for me? Am I the only one with the mind of a twelve year old? (PS This is an actual book.)Read More
I'm often asked on instagram what I follow for a diet, and I think if you've been following the blog for a while you know I follow the GAPS diet to heal my stomach from longterm antibiotic use for Lyme disease, but I wanted to share some actual meals just in case "Oh I follow the GAPS diet" seemed too vague.Read More
Today I'm sharing a 15 minute hip opening yoga practice featuring a bench. The bench is optional - you could just use a set of blocks or a similar bench if you have one. The props totally make things easier, though, and are great if you're someone with limited flexibility or kind of new on the ol' yoga path.Read More
While I was in Greece, my husband Greg went to work on the long list of things we needed to finish up for the YBC Home/Office tour. We had gone shopping, when we first moved in, for bar stools, but we couldn't find anything we liked at a price point we were comfortable with. Greg felt like he could just make what we wanted, so I told him to go for it. The end result came out so awesome, and since we have been featuring DIY projects on here, I thought I'd invite Greg to guest post explaining how he made them. Hope you enjoy.Read More
