    January 2018 Calendar and the Year for Positivity

    This year, rather than setting myself a resolution (not that I ever set resolutions), I thought it would be better to focus on one word… just one word! One that would set the tone and motivate me for 2018… Really, that shouldn’t have been so hard. But here we...

  • Yoga IS for everyone

    Following my previous article, I have had many people saying that yoga isn’t really something that they thought about doing. I’ve heard everything from both ends of the spectrum. From “it’s too hard” to “it’s too easy for me” or “I like to work hard and sweat not just relax and stretch”...
