1. BBC’s Human Planet…so amazing.
3. Celebrate the studio‘s two year anniversary. I have to pinch myself, cannot believe we’re still going strong and growing. So grateful to all my students!
4.We closed on a house. Whoa.
5. We had to wait the rest of the month to move in to said house…still waiting until this weekend!
7. This song…over and over and over and over and over…
8. I got to wear a sweater…outside!
9. It’s not every day that your house gets featured on Apartment Therapy. Too bad we’re moving! Ha! Way to go Dad!
10. I love my day job. Had a wonderful first few days back this week. I feel really grateful.
Is it just me or did July seem LONG? The summer flew by, but it seems like this month has been going on awhile…probably because we’ve been waiting to move for 2+weeks…

First week back to school and we’re moving to the new house this weekend….classes at the studio are packed…I’ve been waking up at 4:30ish to get yoga practice in…needless to say, our pose this week is Savasana, or Corpse pose. One of the most important poses for sure. Not sure a tutorial is needed, other than just: RELAX.

Yeah I know this is a crappy photo…blurry and just generally not great, but it was taken with my $19 smartphone, so there you go. It’s the only photo of the interior we have right now…moving in less than a week now! AH. As you can see, the inside is a little dark and heavy, so we need BRIGHT and BOLD when comes to rugs. However, I get a little scared about how bright and bold to go…I would love to have one of these rugs…remember when I blogged about them almost three years ago!? Crazy…but I’m fairly certain those would break the budget.
There is no carpet in this house. YAY. We also we own zero rugs. And while I love hardwood, a rug or two is going to be needed. Here’s what I’m eyeing:
Of course I could list about a ton more from here and there. I keep discovering new and better places for them online. Right now, I’m really serious about that goldfish rug.

Phew…things are a little crazy right now. In about twenty minutes I’m headed out to Asheville…getting certified to teach pre/post natal yoga this weekend! Getting back late Sunday night then it’s back to work Monday morning! THEN we’re moving next weekend! AH.
It’s all good things, I’m excited more than anything.

Yes, that’s me…doing half lotus in a HEADSTAND. I know, I know, I can’t believe it myself. It was a year next month that I finally started headstanding. So crazy. So happy. I will never ever tell a student that fear is not real….because it IS. It held me back for many years. However, I’m glad it did. Because now that I’m not as scared, I’ve got all the other pieces of the puzzle. My core strength is there, shoulders, balance, etc. So it’s play time….near a wall of course. C’mon, I’m not totally cured yet!
Headstanding is so rough. Yes, it’s considered “the king of all asanas.” But man, it’s so scary! I have mad respect for anyone who is scared of it…because it is scary. Also, it’s not safe for everyone. I think it’s important to be very cautious with this pose.
Real quick–in other news, we now have official Yoga on Capitol Avenue studio shirts available!
These are super soft, American Apparel tanks and tees. Tanks are $15, T-shirts are $20. Even if you’ve never been to my studio, live out of town, etc… but like the shirt, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll give you all the info!
