The Deeper the Roots…

I want to share a pretty inspiring video with all of you today… this video depicts where my interest with working with children and families originally began… well, actually, my interest was first sparked by a school in California named Tara Redwood School… but this video shows how even Tara Redwood School came to be. Lama Thubten Yeshe had the incredible vision to create a type of education that focuses on the individual as a whole, in order to educate the heart AND the mind. This education is called Universal Education. Watch & enjoy!

New Year, New You

2016 has kicked off with a burst of energy! I see changes happening all around me- friends rethinking their work goals, family going through big changes, and others working to reset old habits to make room for new ones. I am excited for this year. I have some goals (probably too many, but that’s a whole different story), and I feel very motivated to get sh*t done! What I usually struggle with is maintaining that energy over a long period of time. But this year feels different. I will say that much. I am excited to be offering a bunch of new yoga classes for children AND adults… and I’ve been working with a good friend to put together new ideas for workshops for both children and adults, too. It’s a really creative time right now. One of my BIGGEST challenges is managing my business in a “business” way. I really want to learn more about running a small business, steps to take to gain a larger audience and proper ways to network successfully… on top …

Family Yoga Interview

Hello to all the families and readers out there! Well, it’s been a minute since I’ve posted last… mainly due to not having much to post about. I’ve been reminding myself lately of the quote by Plato, “A wise man speaks because he has something to say; a fool because he has to say something.” I’ve been gathering ideas of what to post about… and have a few topic ideas to share soon. For now, what I’d like to do is share the Blog of a new friend, Sarah Chase. She is an incredible photographer in New Hampshire, and reached out to the community looking for a children’s yoga teacher to photograph and interview. A handful for friends passes my name along to Sarah… so long story short… here is the blog post on Sarah’s website http://www.chasephotonh.com. I have to admit, my son did not want to cooperate the day Sarah came to take photos… his cousin was visiting, and they just wanted to play. However, Sarah was very patient, and she encouraged us to …

LOVE is The Most Powerful Weapon…

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.” ~ Mahatma Ghandi   I think it’s safe to say that there has been a lot going on in the world over the last few weeks… a devastating earthquake hit Nepal leaving many people dead, injured, and without basic necessities. There have also been a number of protests popping up around the United States. I am not one who follows the news on a consistent basis, honestly, because it terrifies me. However, these protests, and the stories of people who are protesting, have impacted me a lot lately. I’ve also been left with a lot of questions about the world… Why don’t people really listen to each other more? …

Parents… You rock!

How many of you out there are single parents? How many of you are married, but feel like a single parent some, or most of the time? How many of you are parenting equally with the other parent- meaning, you each take on about 50% of the “parenting” duties? Well…. I honor ALL of you. Yes. All of you. Parenting is not an easy job. Whether you are sharing the responsibilities as a parent with someone equally, or taking on most of them yourself- it can feel overwhelming some days. Babies staying awake all night, or toddlers waking up every few hours when they are sick. Children fighting you about bedtime and not wanting to brush their teeth. The mornings when you’ve literally been awake for 60 minutes and already you want everyone to go back to sleep. Yep. We have ALL been there. We all know that instead of yelling, you are quietly talking to yourself, taking deep breaths, and reminding yourself that it is most important to stay calm. We all know how hard …
