If you've been following along with my little yoga challenge on my channel then you'll be familiar with the topic: going slowly. At the beginning of November, I thought about doing something physically tougher than usual but also something that we could learn from. I settled on a slow flow challenge.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard, "You write so dark!" followed by uncomfortable lectures I would really be rich.
Hello, hello! Happy Monday. With the start of the work week comes, well, all the work. Exercising, meal planning, work, extra work, hobbies, lunches, commitments, kid's games, and so on will fill the week. The games have begun! But what happens when you start getting tired?
