The Story Behind YogiNest

People often ask me why I started YogiNest. They wonder why I didn’t just go and get a job at a yoga studio (trust me sometimes I do too, running a business is hard work, hahaha). While starting your own business is not for the faint of heart it truly is so rewarding, even if you’re only able to change one person’s life. YogiNest is hard work, but seeing how it affects the lives of my students is the gift that makes it worth it.

A Gift Disguised As A Tragedy

I remember the exact moment of diagnosis like it happened yesterday. I remember the details explicitly; what I was wearing, who I was with, and where I was. My phone rang, caller ID said it was my doctor and my stomach flipped. I was waiting for results of a test that would determine whether or not I had Lupus. I raised the phone to my ear and she uttered results that somewhere inside I already knew where positive, I had Lupus. It was like everything you see in the movies. Everything around me slowed down, noises around me became faint, I took a deep breath, found a place to sit down and told her I’d call her back.

What Happens When We Meditate?

It has been said that we have anywhere from 50,000-70,000 thoughts per day and it could even be more. That’s insane! Our brain is beautiful, magical, wonderful, powerful, and its also…a liar! Think of all the silly things you think about during the day. “I’m fat, I’m stupid, I’m not good enough. I’ll never get this job, he/she will probably never call me again. My dad called 3 times, I bet something horrible happened to mom.” You know exactly what I’m talking about. We drive ourselves completely insane…over NOTHING! Some of these things are important for our survival; “Don’t touch that it’s hot, you probably shouldn’t walk down that dark alley alone, it’s dangerous.” These things keep us alive and safe. So how do we weed out the unnecessary thoughts and hold onto the ones that matter. Can meditation help?

The Importance Of Restorative Yoga

It’s official, we’re highly stimulated at all times. Our personal lives are busy, our professional lives are busy, the world around us is busy at all times. There seems to be very little time to retreat and refresh. Even when we’re home “relaxing” we’re stimulated, either by the television or social media, etc. There has never been a time that we needed to slow down as much as we do today. A quick and easy restorative practice once a week could literally change your life and your health. Check it out:

Things that drive me crazy; Part 1: Labels

Wanna know what drives me batty??? LABELS!!!

Here are some things I often hear:

Why do you wear so much black? How can you be a yoga teacher and wear so much black? Are you unhappy?

You don’t eat meat or dairy? Are you healthy? Where do you get your protein?

You’re how old and you’re not married and you don’t have kids? Aren’t you worried your window might be closing?
