To Live A Life of Meditation

I’d like to start this off in a humble fashion by saying I never really know what I’m talking about. Here, or anywhere. What I speak from is in a constant state of fluctuation that is based upon my deepest inquiries and the paths these thoughts take me on. But since I’ve been thinking so […]

Why Is It So Hard To Accept?

Appreciation is the lost aspect of acceptance. I have noticed an decrease in appreciation, and an increase in expectation. Not only of others, but in ourselves mainly.

COMMUNITY: #humansofOGyoga

It took walking in the door to realize this studio was different… No one was hindered. Everyone looked comfortable.

Follow The Hoax

My point is, it doesn’t harm you to believe in something. It can actually be greatly beneficial to open yourself up to something that may seem like a hoax. It may feel silly to sit with headphones on and your eyes closed listening to a soothing voice and ocean waves, but what do you have to lose from trying?

Lessons From 31 Days of Yoga

Over all, I learned to be real with myself. I learned that my ego is telling me I deserve the things that won’t serve me. That fear is what keeps me from doing things that seem strange, like guided meditation. That progress is a slow, and often fickle bitch that will not give me what I want but instead keeps me aware of what I need.
