Yesterday, I had the honor of sharing the gift of yoga with an amazing group of folks .

The blind and visually impaired community is often overlooked or discrimintated against in places of exercise. This is so unfortunate.

Iyengar yoga is for EVERY BODY. Thanks to BKS Iyengar's brilliant use of props and the training I have received, I was able to develop a class that wasn't much different from what I teach on a weekly basis.

I'm looking forward to my next visit!


How was your practice today?


New year, new adventures!


Methodist Hospital of Dallas is pink for the month of October - a good reminder that it is time to schedule my mammogram.

Early detection dramatically increases survival rates.

If you're over 40 and have b***s, have you scheduled your mammogram?

RIP Olivia Newton-John πŸ˜₯


Guess mine is not the first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know
There's just no getting over you

You know I'm just a fool who's willing
To sit around and wait for you
But, baby, can't you see
There's nothing else for me to do?
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

My head is saying, "Fool, forget him."
My heart is saying, "Don't let go.
Hold on till the end."
And that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

Today in Dallas, we will have 14 hours and 18 minutes of daylight! 🌞😎Some of you will get even more. Sorry, Southern Hemisphere, you're gonna get a lot less. Either way, join me tonight at 6pm Central Daylight Time for a free restorative class.

Grab your props - couch cushions and pillows if you don't have props - and click the link in my bio to join the class.


Kicking off the summer of arm balances with Lolasana.

Lola in Sanskrit means tremulous, moving to and fro or dangling like an earring.

Lolasana strengthens the wrists, hands, muscles of the back and abdomen. It helps develop and tone the muscles of the arms.

Here are a few clips from class this morning where we worked on the basic movement of the legs in and out from Dandasana. Catch the rest of the class in my on-demand library.



Let the fun begin!


No family road trip is complete until we've visited a quirky museum. in Oklahoma City was so fun and informative. Worth a stop.


RIP, Andy Fletcher


I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details

Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support

She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general

Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She'll hear me out
And won't easily be converted

To my way of thinking
In fact, she'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought
And with every breath

Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like

I don't want to be tied
To anyone's strings
I'm carefully trying to stay clear
Of those things

But when I'm asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly

Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it
And in a place like this
I'll get away with it

When sadness and anger overwhelm me as they have this week, I turn to my practice.

On the mat I am reminded that I am strong; that I can do hard things; that I have the power to effect change.

Hug the ones you love.
Vote in November.
Volunteer in your community.
Do a simple act of kindness everyday.



A mindfulness practice can help reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain.

Take a few minutes to connect with your body and focus on your breath.

Meditation and Movement live stream every Monday at 6pm CDT.
