“So, do I think our old normal was working? Absolutely not. But do I see steps toward a “new normal” evolving? Sadly, the answer is also no.

I can’t promise it will be pretty or necessarily consistent, but I can promise I will listen to your feedback/requests and always give you everything.
All I ask from you is compassion, honesty, and patience.
Today is #WorldSuicidePreventationDay on the 10th day of #NationalSuicideAwarenessMonth. I’ve been affected by suicide and mental health in a multitude of ways. I’ve (unfortunately) known various people who I have lost to suicide; as close to me as my 17-year old cousin to someone I attended high school with.

The stigma behind therapy and only needing it when you have been through something traumatic is something that really weighs on my heart. Therapy is often seen as a tool to use when you are “broken” and need to be “fixed.” First off, let me point out that we’re all “broken.” No one is perfect. … “I Don’t Need Therapy” Read More »
March theme: Letting Go 😌 I pick a new “theme” for yoga every month. I try to make it broad enough to resonate with my students, but still is something I am working on personally (so that my authenticity and truth can always shine through. 🌞) I am attempting to practice letting go – letting … Letting Go Read More »
In my last post, I explained HSP and how I recently realized how I am easily overwhelmed when it comes to sensory processing. Since I found out about this, I try to be hyper-aware and selective with my time. I attempt to choose the events where I know I will overexpose myself and need extra … Slow Down & Stay Awhile Read More »
