Today, I met a friend for a walk and a talk about Forest Bathing (coming soon to the @ayayogaoasis calendar).
.
It is easy to forget how happy touching a tree makes me feel, or how peaceful gazing at a flower is, or even how amazing life feels just by pausing next to a creek to listen.
.
.
@cascadia.forest.therapy and I will be announcing an event very soon. I am excited and you should be too 😉!

CALDER | a myofascial workshop with Carrie Johnson in the comfort of your own home!

Calder means 'rocky water' which sums up the experience of a myofascial workshop: Rolling out the tissues in the body to find the tight spots of tension and release the tension using myofascial release therapy balls.

Myofascial release breaks up adhesions and scar tissue in the body, improves circulation and neuromuscular efficiency, relieves soreness and stress, improves range of motion, and corrects muscle imbalance.

This workshop is ideal for all people, regardless of fitness level, who wish to learn a new technique for dealing with muscle tension, fatigue, or tightness.

Notes about the MFR balls: Carrie will be instructing with the @livewellround balls, which include 2 sizes and pouches for the balls. In lieu of the Wellround balls, you may have 2 tennis balls and a large sock and/or a foam roller.

Investment:
The cost for the workshop only is $25 per person and the video will be available to you for an additional 7 days to use as much as you like!

I don’t think I truly appreciated how amazing log cabins houses are until I stayed with my friends! The construction is so amazing, and so cozy yet incredibly spacious!

Today I walked around Park City...window-shopping and appreciating the architecture of the buildings with my friend Jeannie.
.
Steve was skiing tons of different runs in the Park City ski area with his friend and we all met up for a great lunch downtown.
.
The wind was so cold and piercing that being in the snow didn’t sound tempting to me, but hopefully tomorrow will be a nicer day!

It’s a rare thing to bundle up for the snow here! Today, Steve and I enjoyed dusting off our snowshoes and taking them for a jaunt around the neighborhood!

So much fun and delight all around as it seemed like everyone was out playing in the snow!

A snapshot of my #yogabooks 📷 📚
.
I love to read on paper (not on a screen). I like to feel the paper on my fingers, the sound of pages turning, and being able to write notes in the margins in pencil.
.
.
Some of my most-used yoga books are the ones that have pictures 🌠 or graphics to extrapolate (is that the right word here?) upon the text. That way when I pick up the book after a hiatus, I can easily find inspiration just by leafing through the pages.
.
What yoga books are you inspired by lately? Are you looking to join a yoga book club? I would love to have you join our free book club at @ayayogaoasis !

An exploration of fungi on a short segment of the Wonderland Trail.
.
.
When I hike (which isn’t that often) I try to find a theme... slugs, leaves, mushrooms, beetles, etc., and then find as much variation as I can. Today, my focus was on fungi.
.
I am always fascinated by these life forms that thrive on decay.

Sitting with my fur baby - well, I was trying to study for a Yoga Sutra class that I am taking, but fur baby said it was not study time after all.
.
I am curious, as yoga teachers / studio owners, how many of us have actually read, chanted, and studied the sutras?
.
If so, who were your teachers?
.
To be honest, I have never read them straight through... I have read parts of them and studied some of them... but my goal of diving deep into yoga philosophy begins here this year.: to read and study each line.
.
The class I am taking is a college level class (which means I have to write a paper) and I am super excited to keep going.
