Am still sweating! Just finished an hour long free webinar on Resilience. I feel super passionate about building inner resilience because life is a whole series of highs and lows. We’ve been taught to focus on the “good”, the “highs” and happiness and while I’m fully behind this sentiment, I actually think it’s more healing to focus on reality and all the various emotions we experience (happiness, fear, anger, sadness, disgust = these are the big 5). We can strengthen our capacity to hold all of it, which actually leads to a deeper sense of well being versus pursuing the singular path of happiness. You can see the entire webinar of YouTube (Heartland Yoga channel). https://youtu.be/iXNtj9DGkio

Join me today at noon CST for a free webinar on "The Pursuit of Resiliency". These new times we are in have challenged all of us! It's made me reflect more on the importance of resiliency, or developing a strong unshakable core. In today's webinar you will learn:

*Why our American “pursuit of happiness” is actually not working.
*Why the development of resilience may be a more fruitful path toward elevated mood states.
*The key components to the development of resilience, including connecting to the body, breath, and present moment.
*Why accepting paradox is a powerful step developing an unshakable core of resiliency.

Honestly, when was the last time you really had nothing bothering you?

The mental dialogue in our head NEVER STOPS! There is always a problem to solve, analyze, fix, figure out.

After 2 weeks off, I'm back live on zoom today for 9AM FREE yoga.

I too am burdened with a mind that never shuts up...so today in class we will practice carving out 75 minutes to be in witness mode where we observe and allow. Perhaps it will be balm for your overtaxed mind and body.

This 5 week online FREE program for Iowa women is a journey into self care and self compassion.

We love you from other states and hope you join but our grant only covers Iowa residents - so there is a cost but we’ve greatly reduced it!

Compassion for others begins with kindness toward ourselves.

It was a beautiful stream of synchronicities....
I met someone who told me about a grant.
I applied.
I received funding to create a 5-week Online Self Compassion Program for women called TEND HER.

TEND HER starts June 30, and for the first 500 women living in Iowa, this program is FREE. Not only does it include 10 live classes filled with wisdom and new insights, but you get a journal at the start and a care package at the end (because what woman doesn't love mail).

If you don't live in Iowa, we still want you to join. The cost of the program is greatly reduced and you still get the cool swag!

I've been getting emails from people all day ready to sign up!

We are waiting for our amazing web team Running Robots to finish all the details on the website. Once all the kinks are worked out....registration will open.

I will put the link up as soon as I have it.

Thanks for all your interest...please spread the word.

Women need self compassion, kindness, and eachother.

Join me and the Saturday morning crew for yoga soon at 9AM CST...
Here is the link: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_EgT4r2W3Rjyn_UsGVX8q9w
It has been a hard week for so many people I spoke with. Lots of intense energies with the full moon and eclipse. I've heard about lots of sleepless nights, swirling emotions, and ruminating minds! I can so relate!

Today we work to re-align the mind and the body. Often the mind moves at a much faster pace than the body, getting caught up in speed, distraction, judgment, rumination, and analysis. This only disconnects us more from our body. Give yourself the gift of re-entering the portal to freedom and space via mindful awareness of your body.

See you soon - will be on FB live on Heartland Yoga Page as well.
This is the last live class for 2 weeks as I will be taking off the next 2 Saturdays. Join today too for a BIG announcement about an upcoming program on Self Compassion for Women starting June 30.

Free Saturday Yoga with me starting at 9AM CST.

As Spring blooms around us...there is the possibility for more joy and hope, and yet too often, we feel as if we can't fully live in the joy because we are waiting for the next shoe to drop. It's called "foreboding joy". Relate?

Yoga tradition teaches Santosha, which is essentially contentment. Contentment is finding freedom through acceptance of what is.

Come practice gratitude and contentment with me this morning.

None of us bypassed the Hero's Journey this past year.
A year ago I taught a class on the right of passage or Hero's Journey we were all facing with the pandemic. Little did I know last March that it would be a full year and then some!
In yoga today we are returning to the Hero's Journey and the final step of Re-Incorporation and HOPE.
It's also a FULL MOON today, and this particular full moon has gentle energy. Class will focus on moon salutes, slow flow, and turning attention inward and down.
Love to have your join! https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_EgT4r2W3Rjyn_UsGVX8q9w

“There is no wrong end of the stick. A problem is not an either/or, a test you pass or fail. It’s a source of mystery, intrigue, creativity. It is the Divine itself, speaking in your lives, revealing the very heart of existence in which all things – every contradiction and paradox, truth and lie – live and breathe in harmony”. -Pema Chodron

Join me at 9AM CST for free yoga with a focus on body love. We typically have a relationship with the body based on how it looks or how it is functioning. It is more rare for us to have a relationship with the sensations and vital awareness in the body. If we can shift from judging the body to feeling the body, we tend to experience a deeper sense of reverence for this amazing vessel.

Join me today on zoom or FB live on Heartland Yoga page.

I love this photo below. There have been many campaigns around Europe to increase body love...this one was in Germany!

Saturday yoga this morning with me at 9 AM CST.

Working today with one of the most fundamental questions of life with which we all wrestle..."Who am I?"

I don't promise to have answers, but will guide you into the body and the present moment through today's practice. Lots of grounding, hip openers and breath work today.

Join me on zoom here: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_EgT4r2W3Rjyn_UsGVX8q9w

Or on FB LIVE on the Heartland Yoga page.

After class at 10:15AM I am doing a Q & A on "who am I?" and how this question led me to create my upcoming 5 month online program "Yoga For The Mind". I will be taking questions too about this program and if a 5 month deep dive into yourself is what you are needing at this time. (Even if you don't join for yoga at 9, you can hop onto zoom link for the 10:15 Q & A)
