30 days of yoga

Last year I tried to do yoga every day for a month, which you can read about here. This didn’t work out too well for me and it definitely didn’t happen. However this year I had a lot less to distract me from this goal so once again I set out to do yoga every…

disappointment: changes and cancellations

It has been a week since I wrote my post on social distancing and wow, that week has seemed like a year. The dining room table has fully transitioned to becoming my desk, I haven’t left the house in days, and the news seems to be worse and worse every single day. It was my…

i tried to do yoga every day in march…here’s what happened

I enjoy doing yoga. As someone who has quite a sore set of shoulders and neck I enjoy spending time stretching out my body, relaxing, and taking time to be with myself and not be distracted by social media and other life worries. I decided to set myself a challenge for the month of March,…

Earlier this year I was working out almost every single day, breaking a sweat and I was noticing changes in my body and feeling much stronger and better about…
