DIY Terrarium

Want to get crafty this Monday? Because I sure do. I have been in a super crafty mood this past month, so here we are with another DIY. This time, I actually took some progress pictures! Let’s jump in to this super popular DIY! If you know anything about me, then you would know that…

24. long days. clopening. and taking it easy. 

I do wish I were here. In these woods camping. It was so peaceful. It was too short. I definitely need a break from life right now. A break that’s more than a day or two long.  Today was a shit day at work, and I open tomorrow. Which means I get to deal with…

23. growth. acceptance. and a whole lot of repetition. 

Holy growth batman. This isn’t easy for me. I don’t like challenges I can’t easily conquer. This is time based. And the longer you do it, the deeper your roots grow. The more growth happens.  But I’m beginning to accept it as just a part of, well everything. Life is cyclical. Life is challenging. If…

22. balance. eating. and procrastinating.

Today is the equinox. The epitome of balance. One of two times the earth reaches true balance of dark and light.  Meanwhile I’m over here having to drop to the mat fifteen minutes into class because my body had to remind me I haven’t eaten much of anything this week, and what I have eaten…

21. all of the props. family yoga? and nutrition. 

I love that this challenge is about all that yoga is. Don’t get me wrong, I love building this habit of a daily practice. But I also love the freedom of accepting yoga to be more than just my time on the mat. Or the amount of props I have now accumulated to support my…

20. malas. stresses. and wonderfully cloudy days. 

If there were a thing as a yogi mama or yogi big sister, in the sense of showing you the way or bringing you along to ideas or places, miss @katamox is mine! Not only did she bring me to @zudayogaroseville, but she has now inspired me to make my own Mala.  In making this…

19. freedom. new yoga pants. and some more anxiety. 

Today’s Yin class taught me three things: Yin is about twenty times more difficult when I’m feeling anxious, @aloyoga’s goddess pants are the coziest and most perfect pants for Yin class, and yoga is teaching me how to be free.  I couldn’t focus today. Not that focus is the main point of yoga, more that…

18. shavasana. slow flow. and balance. 

This is day 18! Woah. Wait. We are more than halfway through #yogagirlchallenge! I haven’t stuck to a challenge like this in years! And I feel so amazing. I am so in love with this practice.  My body is sore, but not too sore. And I feel stronger. I can balance easier and longer. I…

DIY Planted Aquarium

It’s Monday again, so let’s do something productive! Okay, I will say this is not the best way to post a DIY because I am doing so completely after the fact. I didn’t think anything of it a couple weeks ago when I set my aquarium up, but after having it for a little bit…

16. sunshine. grass. and free practice outside. 

Today was the second to last week of yoga in the park out at Maidu. And what better way to follow up a 3mi run than with 75 minutes flowing with other humans in this beautiful weather?! I am very wary of grass, it makes me real itchy. So I kept myself mostly on my…

17. non-dairy froyo. mini yoga retreats. and feeling refreshed.

Today after work I spent almost 4 hours at the studio. A 2 hour yoga/essential oils workshop followed up with an hour long Yin class followed up with a fifteen minute Nidra session. All of which I ended by treating myself with some tasty non-dairy froyo from my favorite shop.  Today was refreshing. I smell…
