Writing to Write by Jessie Carson

Writing to Write by Jessie Carson

Have you ever wanted to start (or re-start) a writing practice and just can’t seem to make it happen? Maybe you think you don’t have the time or you don’t think it’s productive or that there is no benefit unless you publish. Those roadblocks along with many other myths are just some of the excuses we tell ourselves to keep us from creating and reaping the benefits that come from a creative practice. Writing for no other purpose but ‘to write’ can be a helpful thing to do during times of uncertainty. It is a simple practice where writing for as short a time as three minutes can be beneficial after one session. While there are no guarantees, writing often helps people make sense of things going on in their lives. Writing can also help with processing and coping. No matter what ‘purpose’ we have for writing, many people know that writing can be settling and comforting. Franz Kafka, a writer of...

Yoga Teacher Training FAQs

Yoga Teacher Training FAQs

Our yoga journey is a very individual experience transpiring within a community practice, or at least that’s our perception. You may find in discussion with other yogis similarities to your internal practice, reactions and questions. This is certainly true when it comes to choosing a yoga teacher training! We may all have a very unique experience, but we often have the same curiosities and questions ahead of the training itself. To help you make the right decision for your yoga teacher training experience, here are some questions we frequently get asked and the best answer we can supply without knowing you and your context individually. Is my yoga practice advanced enough to do a yoga teacher training? Although we have had students with very little experience ahead of their training, it’s best to have a regular yoga practice ahead of your yoga teacher training. The more experience you have, the more information you have to apply to what you learn. When yogis...

It's a great way to reap the benefits of eating, or actually drinking, large quantities of fruits and vegetables. Here's a great spring-time combo to try!
