• A New Year. Is it really?

    It may be trite, but I’m not a big New Year fan. Even when I could stay up until Midnight and had places to be, New Year didn’t appeal to me. I understand the fundamental, psychological enticement of a reset button. I’m not alone with a little moment I’d love to erase.     But I’m also not a dweller.   We all make mistakes. That is the nature of human beings. The important beauty of having sentience is the ability to change. I try not to allow my missteps to bog down the process of moving forward in life. Try being the operative word. So I don’t feel the…

  • Growing Pains And Learning Curves

    I have jumped into the deep end of the pool, and while I CAN swim, I may be developing some side cramps. As with any new venture, there are growing pains and learning curves. I happened to add moving a pair of grown offspring back home, buying a house, selling a house (in that order), recording the audiobook, and launching an online business right before my publisher set my book’s release date.   What was I thinking?!

  • Holy F*ck! The New Normal Is CRAZY

    I’m behind the power curve. No news there for any of you who know me, but I’m struggling. I’m not alone. I mean, I am alone, but we’re in this together. Wow, that was a terrible sentence. We’re doing online yoga together. In our own space. It’s the best I’ve got at the moment!   Extra, extra! I’m building an online gig. The heady mix of pandemic and political crisis has created an environment of WTAF that is wearing me out. I don’t feel comfortable teaching in a group setting where people are not required to wear masks in recycled air indoors.   The COVID isn’t a conspiracy. I had…

  • All Are Welcome, All Are Welcome

      Happy July! I’m entering a new phase of the Covera and all are welcome. Welcome to join me for yoga from anywhere. I know it’s a bummer. Online yoga, live or recorded, has some drawbacks. One of my clients mentioned that one of the most valuable things about my yoga as compared to other yoga is my commanding personal presence. The Beard would simply say I’m a raging bitch. The beauty of The F*cking Yoga Co. is my particular style of yoga is informed by age, injury, and illness. It’s accessible, and there is no one perfect alignment.   Being in class with me gives a client the opportunity…

  • Adventures in The Covera: Teaching Online Yoga

      We’re in the Covera. We used to be in the Before Times. That’s how the Beard and I distinguish our references. It’s the little things that keep us from losing our minds. Okay, we lose them regularly, but these adventures in the Covera require finding any humor we can. I’m dipping my toe into teaching online yoga and I may lose what’s left of my sanity. I’m going for an antibody test tomorrow. Yes, by all medical accounts, I had the Covid-19. Because of the lack of serology tests at the time I was ill, I wasn’t tested. And while antibodies will confirm I had the Rona, the common…
