Underestimating Surrender

KNOWING ISN’T THE PROBLEM…   You know how tweens and teens know EVERYTHING? When asked or reminded about something, mine respond with “I KNOW!” To which my response is, “knowing isn’t the problem, doing is.” Well, as we sometimes do as parents, I found myself choking on my own words… I was a business owner, yoga […]

Beagle Rescue Yoga

For The Love Of Dogs   Our pups so generously love us despite character flaws like forgetting the occasional biscuit or skipping a walk, but not all pups get safety and love returned to them.  Sometimes they end up neglected, abandoned or abused.

Together We Go Further

GRATEFUL FOR THE OPY COMMUNITY   As I begin my 3rd year teaching at OPY, I take a moment to reflect.  As you’ll hear me say in class, take a moment to “practice the pause, feel the feels.” I have learned so much and evolved as a teacher in my relatively short time at Omaha […]

Grief and Acceptance

Every Memorial Day I think back to family traditions.  My mom was a teacher and a genealogy buff, so we spent many summer days in tiny remote cemeteries looking for ancestors and making headstone rubbings (the older I got, the less fun I found this to be).   On Memorial Day we remembered family members […]

Yoga Changed My Life

Our friend Julie shared her story with us. We think many of you will be able to relate to it. 😉  We’re thrilled to have her back again. Leon is thrilled about her generosity with treats! The very first time I practiced at OPY, I was scared to death. I also knew that how I […]

What Is Yoga

  It’s been written about and talked about a thousand times over…        What is yoga?  What’s not yoga? Ask ten people and you’ll get ten different answers. And that’s okay. This may be challenging – we don’t need to make someone else wrong to feel safe in our own belief. Yet that’s […]
