I have to say that these last few weeks of teaching yoga have been an absolute delight and full of creativity. Even though it was cold and snowing like crazy on March 29, a packed house at Yoga Bliss Akron heated it up so it felt as hot as Jamaica, and the picture was complete […]


Spring Cleaning

Spring is a time of year that brings me a great deal of joy as nature comes alive again with budding trees, daffodils, and green grass. I get to wear sandals again as the weather starts to warm up after a brutally hard winter here in Ohio. But, there is one part of spring that […]

Well, the 2014 movie awards season may have come to an end, but it’s not too late to get dressed up (in some snazzy yoga pants from Onzie), roll out the extra-long red yoga mat, and hand out the 2014 YOGAR Awards! What are the YOGARs, you ask? Just a groovy little award presentation I’ve […]

Everyone loves to get affirmation, and yesterday I got to receive a huge dose of special affirmations whispered lovingly into my ear. Before you start thinking it was my husband getting all romantic before Valentine’s Day, think again, because these beautiful messages were delivered by fellow yogis who are participating in the 40 Days to […]


I have been home for more than a week, and I still haven’t come down from the blissfully high feeling I was left with at the end of SKIASANA. In keeping with tradition, I’m recapping the ski and yoga retreat with a top ten list of all the reasons why I can’t wipe the smile […]


It has been way too long since I wrote about cool yoga music or a song that lifts me up, inspires, and makes it irresistible to do a little dance on my yoga mat. So, it is with extreme joy that I announce my newest yoga theme song, “Best Day of My Life” by American […]

January 9, 2014

I heard on the radio that Monday, January 6, was deemed the most depressing day of the year. With the holidays over, bills to pay, the cold winter weather ­– and, for some, the thought of going back to work or school after a break – folks can get pretty bummed out. After hearing this […]


What did the yogi ask for the holidays? No gifts, only presence. I heard this joke earlier in the week and it made me remember a book I’d received as a gift called The Precious Present by Spencer Johnson. I shared the joke and the message from the book in the yoga classes I taught on […]
