In my last post I hinted about finishing my goal setting process and identifying my 2018 theme. My theme isn't just an arbitrary word or idea but more of a lens I can look through as I make decisions about what to say yes to, what makes it to the top of the priority list, and what is truly important in my life. For 2018 my theme is Abundance!
Abundance isn't just about being rich or having it all. Abundance to me is being in flow with my life's purpose, being surrounded by love and friendship, and having gratitude for all that I have in my life. Abundance is about trusting that the things we need will come our way and that by expressing gratitude for what we do have we can expand our ability to love and serve others and receive the same in return. I want to make choices that bring me abundance or that allow me to share abundance with others.
I truly believe yoga can be for everyone and every body so I want to start a series of blog posts that can help you activate each yoga asana (poses) in a way that's accessible and meaningful for you. My favorite part of my Yoga Teacher Training was learning modifications for each pose and gaining a deeper understanding of what each pose can bring to your life.
I am hopeful this series will help when you attend a class or practice along with a video at home so you can understand what each pose does for your body and make the proper adjustments that still allow you to get the most out of each pose. I will also share easy ways to modify your poses with what you have at home so you don't have to go out and buy expensive yoga props until you're ready to make that investment (or at all).
The first pose I want to help you understand is a favorite of mine. It's easy and one that most people will be able to safely and easily practice. Even if you think you're too busy to p…
In my last post I talked about my favorite place in our home being the floor of our master bedroom looking out the window so I'm back to deliver some photos of the view.
I simply adore the view and maybe because of the elevation change on our property (under our room is the walkout basement so it makes our first floor room feel like a second floor room) it feels like we're way up high in there.
I think another reason I love it is because it feels so open and expansive. Like there's no boundaries to what's possible. Literally the sky is the limit. It's like my personal connection to nature watching birds of all sizes, deer with their young, and even the local neighborhood cats (no really I see the same orange cat on our security footage at least once a week - ha ha ha).
I love that I can see the mountains, watch the sunrise, and when it's a day like the 4th of July it's like my own personal fireworks show watching every fireworks display in the Salt Lake val…
