10 Reasons Why I Practice Yoga

Obviously yoga has become a huge part of my life. I’ve been practicing off and on for over 8 years, and even in my moments away, I knew it was something special. It’s crazy to think we are several weeks into yoga teacher training. We have covered a lot of ground, we are getting more and more comfortable teaching each other, and I even filmed a couple short flows (including with me teaching) for my job last week(!!).

My Holiday Wish List

It’s crazy to think Christmas is only a few weeks away. While my tree and decorations are up, I haven’t really been thinking too much about it. I’m sure that sounds terrible and it doesn’t mean I’m feeling like a Scrooge, but rather life has kept me side tracked. Between the busy season at work, teacher training, and also trying to have a social life, time is slipping by. I know we all can relate though, despite what our schedules may look like.

With that said, I was caught off guard when my mom emailed and asked for Christmas lists last week. Oops! While I feel so blessed and that my main needs are covered, I thought I would check in today with a few of the fun ideas from my own gift wish list. They just may give you a few ideas for anyone left on your list of gifts to buy, especially if they enjoy being active like me.

With all of the yoga teacher training, yoga has obviously taken a front seat in my fitness right now. With that said, any time I get the opportunity to break out my sneakers and go for a run, I’ve been trying to. I will be running my first half marathon in a few years come April, so it’s also important I stay consistent in running now to make the transition easier come training time.

Since my workouts generally take place before the sun comes up, I’m often training on the treadmill but it’s always nice when I can get outside for a run on the weekends. We all know winter is coming and once it arrives, I would love to keep up at least one outdoor run a week, if I can. It’s been a few years since I’ve run outside during the winter so I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my memory (and yours) to ensure our winter running is safe and productive.


December 2017 Goals

As it seems to happen every month, this past month flew by. It’s crazy to think we’re already in the final month of 2017. I’m not about to start reflecting on the year just yet, but it’s crazy to think of everything that has happened and how I really feel like I’m continuing to set myself and my future up for great things. But like I said, I’m not jumping there just yet.

I do want to take a few minutes though to reflect on this past month and the goals that I set forth for the month of November, see how they went and what I’m hoping to achieve now that December has arrived.
