#YogaMonday: #Yogaat50 Lesson 4 Everyday

Happy #YogaMonday!

I spent the weekend at the WordPress Press Publish Conference in Portland, Oregon. During my talk on Blogging for Obama, I invited the audience to take a digital wellness moment that included several yoga deep breathing exercises. Much later in the day, I talked to someone about my “Yoga Everyday” approach to living and teaching yoga. It’s pretty simple. I help everyday people incorporate gentle and office yoga into everyday of their lives while often wearing everyday clothing.


#Yogaat50 Lesson 4 is EVERYDAY. My very first yoga teacher Gloria taught me that yoga begins with the breath in 1995. She also encouraged me to practice yoga EVERYDAY by breathing deeply and mindfully. She also encouraged me to add a yoga pose to my daily practice. I have followed her wisdom and continue to share it with my yoga, Reiki, and creativity coaching clients. What does your yoga practice look and feel like?

Happy Yoga Monday!

Yoga is a Sanksrit word that means union or connection to all things. It begins with the breath. When I practice yoga, it helps me slow down. It makes me more mindful and allows me to make better choices. Click here to watch my yoga video that includes breathing exercises. Enjoy!

What does yoga do for you?

OM #YogaMonday OM!
