Dear Homegrown Yogis, Last week I traveled to Austin, Texas to attend my second Rocket Yoga Teacher Training – this time led by David Kyle, a teacher I had never had the chance to meet or practice with.  At the very beginning of the training, David had each of us create lines on our mat… Continue reading April 2021

Dear Homegrown Yogis, I feel weird writing this in a letter to be shared via mass email, but I always talk about vulnerability so here you go:  I’m not feeling very good right now.  I’m really anxious about the opening of our Macon studio this weekend.  I’m really struggling with losing our Perry Arts Center… Continue reading March 2021

Dear Homegrown Yogis, I don’t think anyone’s life has gone according to plan this past year, has it?  I know mine hasn’t.  It’s been full of set-backs (closing the studio for several weeks), and it’s been full of seriously unexpected surprises (hello, new Macon studio!).  It’s even shown me how often it’s these exact set-backs… Continue reading February 2020

Dear Homegrown Yogis, If you’ve taken a class with me lately then you probably know I recently read and reread (and even re-reread) Glennon Doyle’s newest book, Untamed.  Although I’ve underlined nearly every other sentence in the book, this is the one that struck me in a way that I can’t stop thinking about: “I… Continue reading November 2020

Dear Homegrown Yogis, “I just feel like it’s not the right choice.”  Even before I started practicing yoga, I always trusted my gut instincts.  When my parents asked why I wanted to go to college in the middle of Maine, I could only explain it by saying “I loved the feeling when I stepped onto… Continue reading October 2020

Dear Homegrown Yogis, “A crisis is a terrible thing to waste,” as Stanford economist Paul Romer once said.  Sounds a little crazy, right?  Yet what Romer is suggesting makes complete sense –  a crisis gives (or maybe even forces) companies to evolve, recognize priorities and hopefully grow from them.  I’ve drawn on this idea again… Continue reading September 2020
