A Really Juicy Conversation

Sep 26, 2013 • (0) Comments

“I can tell you this, it (Yoga Flirt) is defiantly not yoga.” Occasionally I get comments such as this and quite frankly I welcome and invite them. They provide me with a wonderful opportunity to clarify and find new ways to express how Yoga Flirt is a yoga practice. I was so delighted by this […]

Conception, Labor and Delivery

Sep 23, 2013 • (2) Comments

Once upon a time, back in 2007, I opened a little one room yoga studio called Yoga in the Vines. On the walls of that studio were some black and white posters with a grid of pictures showing average looking practitioners in common poses. I loved those posters because they were inspiring and showed poses […]

Don’t Judge Me

I love shiny/sparkly nail polish, pretty much all things pink with hearts or leopard print, my vast collection of pajamas that I wear anytime I’m not in public, So You Think You Can Dance, and dark chocolate every day before bed. Like most people, lately I would then utter the phrase: Don’t judge me. When […]

She Calls it Slut Yoga

Aug 01, 2013 • (3) Comments

I heard from a reliable source that there is a female yoga instructor in my local community who refers to Yoga Flirt as Slut Yoga. (Please note that this was not directly said to me, but I trust the person who related the story.) As far as I know, this yogini has never been to […]

Dear Flirt Sister, I love you. Today is Guru Purnima, most simply put a day to honor and celebrate your teacher and your teacher’s teachers.

Compassion Part 2

Jul 09, 2013 • (2) Comments

Did you know that when you are practicing compassion you are practicing yoga? It’s true! If you practice compassion you are a yogi. There are many ancient texts on the practice of yoga, the one I refer to most often is the Yoga Sutras. Most people consider the physical (asana) practice of yoga the only […]

This one starts with you…

Jul 02, 2013 • (2) Comments

I have all of these wonderful, insightful, interesting stories swirling through my head about July’s word of the month. I just can’t seem to figure out where to start, which leads me to go right to the heart of the word and it’s definition. Compassion: sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to […]

Cell Phones Vs. The Present Moment

And the winner is….. Both. For Real. Let me explain how I came to this conclusion. A while back on Facebook I saw a meme of a woman walking on a beautiful path through some pretty green trees, looking at her cell phone. The caption was along the lines of “Too bad you’re missing all […]

June’s Word of the Month Is…..

After listening to the message that I needed a few days off, Happy Hubby and I sneaked away for a few days of play time at one of our favorite mid-week, quick and easy get aways. Every moment of every day was infused with June’s word of the month. Just for fun, follow this time-line […]

Not In MY House

The words you speak and the thoughts you think are incredibly powerful. Not only are they a reflection of your current reality, they are creating your future reality. Whatever you are saying and thinking now will create what you experience later. Knowing how powerful our thoughts and words are, there are two very small yet […]

Listen to This!

Apr 30, 2013 • (0) Comments

Listen to your heart, your soul, your instinct. Listen to the words that come out of your mouth. Listen to what others are saying to you. The Universe loves you and is constantly streaming love and protection to you. In the words of Oprah, I say the universe speaks to us, always, first in whispers. […]
