THAT’S what I’m talking about…

Feb 02, 2012 • (4) Comments

It is so incredible when you simply release an intention out into the Universe and it comes back to you greater and more magnificent and easier than you ever could have thought. On Tuesday I shared with you that I was trusting that a place for me to stay during my teacher training would manifest […]

Life Lessons at Disneyland!

Jan 31, 2012 • (2) Comments

I’ll return to Empty Buckets Overflow soon…today I really want to tell you about a huge life lesson I learned at Disneyland last week. And it seems to be one the Universe has been trying to teach me for a while but I wasn’t quite getting this one in particular, though I have learned other […]

The Glimmer of a Puddle

Jan 17, 2012 • (4) Comments

My next yoga lesson came around the age of 27. (Read about my first yoga lesson here.) One thing to keep in mind is that for me yoga was s-l-o-w-l-y filling my empty heart and soul. It was and still is a process of bringing me back home to myself. In the late 90’s I […]

Disappearing Drops In My Empty Bucket

Jan 10, 2012 • (7) Comments

Yesterday I gave you a brief description of myself in my mid-20’s, which is where I began my yoga practice. When I look back, I don’t even recognize myself! I truly am a completely different person in the best ways possible. I didn’t change overnight, but rather over time. My bucket was empty, but about […]

Empty Buckets Overflow

About 18 months ago several Flirts told me that they would read a book if I wrote one. I felt excited and challenged by that idea and decided to go for it. Several months into the endeavor I was realizing that I bit off a bit more than I was ready to chew. One of […]

You Said It! (thanks for the love)

Jan 05, 2012 • (0) Comments

Huge, heartfelt gratitude to all who contributed your loving words to this assignment! I will soon be beginning the next phase of my yoga teacher training and last week on Facebook asked for some help with my pre-training assignment. The assignment said, “Describe who you are (or who you want to be) as a yoga […]

Waiter, this isn’t the soup I ordered…

My very wise, experienced and occasionally goofy yoga teacher Jeanne Heileman recently posted the following quote as her Facebook status: When life sends you things that are not what you planned – surrender. Again and again and again. And again. The difficulty is your gift and teacher. Joy is through the difficulty, not around it. […]

Pssst! Wanna know a secret?

Nov 22, 2011 • (0) Comments

Brace yourself, this secret is a goodie! Yoga Flirt is NOT about the pole. I know, shocking right? In any form of yoga, the asanas or postures, the physical stuff we do with our bodies, isn’t what yoga is all about. Let me explain. The word yoga comes from the Sanskrit word yuj, which means […]

3 Ways to Put the Brakes on Fake

Nov 17, 2011 • (0) Comments

A few nights ago I was having a very exciting, stimulating conversation. I was witty and brilliant. The person I was having the conversation agreed with everything I said. It was one of the best conversations I’ve ever had. And it was completely fake. It was about 2 am, I was lying awake in bed, […]

I have an attiutde!

Nov 07, 2011 • (0) Comments

*Some of my blogs and newsletters come from an intellectual place, my head, straight from me. I think they’re good. My best stuff I can’t take credit for, it comes through me, from a higher place, from the Divine. (I’ll explain that more completely another day.) Today’s blog is from that place. Last week, on […]

Are you worth celebrating?

Oct 25, 2011 • (1) Comments

If you can come to class, that is amazing and worth celebrating. If you can come to class and attempt to climb a 12′ pole, that is amazing and worth celebrating. If you climb to the top and ring the bells, that is amazing and worth celebrating. If you don’t move an inch and end […]

Ugh….handstands!?!?

Special thanks to Leah for this honest guest blog today! Ugh….handstands!?!? That was my exact thought when I started in Level 6 about 1 ½ years ago. I had not been a gymnast growing up, I was not particularly comfortable being upside down, all combined with moving into Level 6….ugh HANDSTANDS! I’m not going to […]
