As the leaves get crunchy and the pumpkins grow moldy (I know, not for everyone: Hello, Southern Hemisphere!) I have been thinking and writing about scary stuff, like being old and feeble and the idea of giving up caffeine, and here’s another- showing the real me… But, the real me is awful! Yeah, which real… Continue reading Spooky Halloween Story: Be Authentic
For the month of October, I’m writing about terrifying things- like LACK of MUSCLE MASS!!! Imagine this whole post read in a deep ominous voice) My sister in-law told me this story about when she was in nursing school, she did some practicum hours at a flu shot clinic. Mostly old people came to… Continue reading Spooky Halloween Stories- Old People with No Muscles!
During the month of October, in the spirit of Halloween (get it, spirit?) I am writing posts about things that scare me, or should scare me. Imagine this read aloud in a verry spoooooky voice.

When we introduce… Continue reading The Philosophy Fair

There is obviously a desire to practice yoga with a group, yet people can’t seem to get out… Continue reading 5 things to look for in a yoga studio
I’m so excited to offer a new class at a new location, Grace Yoga Studio, 4520 Garfield, Loveland. It is only 10 minutes south of Harmony Road.

Kate and I had been to the circus the week before, a small, one-ring circus that traveled to mountain towns- I remember their elephant being particularly miserable looking in the rain/snow mix that was falling that June evening… Continue reading The Circus Arts
So, the space where I have been teaching my Monday night yoga class is changing soon. I have been sharing mat space with Oriental Moodo School of Colorado, which is also where I have been studying taekwondo for the last 5 or so years. The Dojang is moving to a space that works better for… Continue reading A school is not just a building, you know
I’ve used anatomy illustrations which I have lovingly colored in, to show ideas here on this blog, and I want to share again how great the source of the material is. The book I have is Kapit and Elson’s Anatomy Coloring Book, and I learn something new every time I look at it. It was… Continue reading If you love that book so much, why don’t you marry it?
