    { 33 comments }

    Hi and happy Friday! I've had a really good week...work was steady busy but not crazy busy...which is always nice. I've REALLY been working on cutting back and being smarter about how I arrange my schedule. It's working! This afternoon I had the BRILLIANT idea to add chocolate chips and dried cranberries to my peanut [...]

    I had a great weekend! It was a nice balance of work, fun and relaxation. And there was this... I almost feel guilty posting this because I know so many of you are digging out of snow but it was insanely gorgeous in Charlotte this weekend. 65 and sunny on Saturday and 70 and sunny [...]

  • A Sweet Saturday + Arm Balance & Inversion Workshop

    { 21 comments }

    Hi and happy Saturday! I had such a wonderful day. It began with a tropical green smoothie while I finished up making a new playlist for my morning yoga classes. I went straw instead of spoon and no granola today. I spent my morning teaching yoga...7:45 a.m. hot vinyasa at Charlotte Yoga followed by 9:30 [...]

  • A Weekend Workshop + Weekly Workouts

    { 11 comments }

    This Sunday is a breath of fresh air for me! Other than teaching my normal Sunday morning yoga class, I have had the whole day 100% to myself to do whatever I feel like doing. I slept 'til 8:15, taught, came home and menu planned for the week (first time doing that in foreverrrrrr and [...]

  • The Day Everything Changed

    { 29 comments }

    Sunday was a big day over here. 1) The time changed. In case you didn't know (I only bring it up once a week ;))...I'm a summer girl and the arrival of short days and cold weather makes me want to hibernate in a hole until April. I really should work on that plan to [...]

  • A Very Social Weekend (I Put on Real Clothes 4 Days in a Row!)

    { 44 comments }

    I hope your Monday is off to a great start! I had a yoga private this morning, a coffee meeting and then I shopped and cooked meals for my client. I haven't done a weekend recap in a while because my weekends haven't been much to write about but I thought that putting on real [...]

  • Weekend: Erin McDermott + Cheese & Wine + Market + Cute Sullie

    { 23 comments }

    I feel like I'm finally starting to recover from last week. It was a short one but so jam-packed. I didn't get home from work until 7 on Friday night so I took Sullie out for an easy run so we could enjoy some fresh air after being cooped up in the gym all day. [...]

    Santosha - "Contentment, peace." Santosha names the practice, or niyama, of seeking joy and serenity in life, perceiving the perfect state of balance and perfection in God's creation." - source I almost did not practice yoga today. I went back and forth for hours about whether or not I was going to go to my favorite [...]

  • Sweaty Saturday

    { 27 comments }

    I had a great Saturday but no time to slow down and post. It was pretty much full of my most favorite things - teaching yoga, taking yoga, hanging out with the pup, baking, shopping and drinks with friends. My alarm went off at the very early hour of 6 a.m. since I had to [...]

  • A Yoga + Dinner Date

    { 16 comments }

    It's Wednesday, it's raining and I'm kind of grumpy. Despite multiple cups of coffee, crawling back into bed seems like a much better option than braving the day. I need some sunshine in my life. And a tropical vacation. Definitely more coffee. I just at this for breakfast. Peanut butter, honey, banana and cinnamon on [...]

    Happy New Year. I hope that however you chose to ring in the new year was fun and that you were surrounded by friends, family or loved ones. I started my new year by staying in bed as long as possible. I think it was 10:45 when I finally got up to make coffee and [...]

  • Yoga and Birthdays

    { 6 comments }

    I am pretty disciplined about my yoga practice. There are certain yoga classes that I love to attend and try not to miss. One of those is the Saturday morning Super Flow at Y2. Despite the early 7:30 starting time, I never have a problem motivating myself to get out of bed for it because [...]

  • Restorative

    { 20 comments }

    The past few weeks have been a little off with regards to my workouts due to my hamstring injury. Rather than continuing to push through increasingly worsening pain, I've backed off of it to allow for recovery and healing. I haven't run in 17 days (who's counting?) and I've scaled back my yoga practice. Absent [...]
