Maintaining A Yoga Schedule

It isn't always easy. Well, I guess that implies that it is most of the time easy...which it isn't. Showing up to any workout or meal (that isn't trash) is hard. It takes willpower, dedication, and all that jazz. And none of that screams "easy". Carving out time to do yoga isn't the hardest part.… Continue reading Maintaining A Yoga Schedule

How do you find the motivation to get onto your yoga mat or the martial arts mat? You don't. I've said this about writing, running,… Continue reading Forcing Yourself Onto The Mat

Calming Down On Vacation

I know what you're thinking, vacations are for relaxing. Why would I need to calm down? Because vacations are actually incredibly stressful. For about ten thousand different reasons.
