We have been on a longgggggg hiatus from the proper updates to the site and blog. Apologies for this! We are gearing up to get a bunch of new stuff out there. We have also been teaming up with local instructors and studios in Arizona to spread our beautiful community and gain inspiration.
Stay tuned for good things...
a wise instructor I know posted a short story to social media that really resonated with me. looking ahead with a positive outlook...Today when I was getting ready to teach an outdoor yoga class, I overheard a woman saying that she can't even enjoy the beautiful weather because she knows what's coming. Then a little [...]
yes the new year new you fad has shown its face again for 2015. it's like the date makes the possibly of starting a new health kick or routine all the more easier. As always we root for anyone who takes a step in the right direction and starts or continues a healthier regime. but [...]

well here we are again, yes it's been awhile. We are as human as anyone else and sticking to a new routine can be insanely difficult at first. (ok we know our posts are less than routine, but... that's the point we're making!) it's kind of like when you first start your yoga practice you [...]
Frustrating it is to find a pose that gives you trouble. I don't care who you are, there are a handful of poses you prefer to ignore. The sad thing is, these are probably the ones we should be focusing on. You know the old saying, if it ain't hard, it ain't worth it (ok [...]
Yoga has become a fad, yes we said the terrible word. It's cool to be fit, it's cool to bend, twist and balance; and it's definitely cool to declare how 'yogi' you are. Some traditional 'yogis' and people who take their practice seriously and deeply may look down upon this or see the trend being [...]
So a big issue of trying something new is figuring out the best way to begin. In our yoga practice that first step can be harder than mastering any pose. When we walk into our first class intimidation can kick in right away. It is so amazing to see students who are confident in their [...]
