How It Feels To Be NEW To Yoga

I was sore after classes. I had a terrible mat that was bought at a super store long ago before my son Zach was born. Something that I thought was perfectly adequate and had no understanding that the quality of my yoga mat would GREATLY influence my experience. How could a piece of rubber be really any different? I slid and tried to hold myself in Down Dog, could not fathom a low push up or how to stop myself from my belly plopping down and my elbows flying out to the side. I existed with this piece of crap mat for a couple years maybe.

I look around and see the work that I have done, the relationships shared and lost, the ways in which I was a “season” to others. I have always believed that everyone says they love you - until they don’t. Until the season changes.

NEVER HAVE I EVER...Been so confused. Honestly, I have no idea what is going on anymore. I prop open the computer to write this email and it shows me my prior emails in a list. I look back on the past email in the beginning of March with my mouth agape. I wish I could have told myself the real truth of what was coming. I wish I had been told by someone the truth about what was coming. I am semi glad I didn't know because I don't think I could comprehend surviving like this, UNTIL I HAD TO.

Moon Circles

The circle. A sacred symbol with no beginning and no end. Humans have been drawn to circles since our time on Earth began.

I am writing this as I sit in my ‘Getaway’ cabin in the woods. There is no WiFi and I haven’t touched my phone (it’s in the cell phone lockbox and TURNED OFF) in 2 days.

The Comfort Zone

My name is Meredith, and I’m scared of inversions. (Cue the audience’s muttered, “Hi Meredith,” response).Yes, I’m a yoga teacher who still struggles with inversions.

One of the things I have noticed in my practice lately is that a commitment really makes a difference. Since Om Lounge opened, I have been teaching (a lot) but I have also been practicing A LOT.

No Place like OM

And then it was happening... the dreams had become a reality. The ideas and vision had taken shape and Om Lounge Yoga & Wellness was born!

As we head into Spring, we notice all around us nature's transformation. Fuzzy buds on the trees, the grass begins to come back to life, the longer days. It's a season of renewal.

Beneath the Surface

We are about to embark on a New Year and the typical resoutions come into mind, the goals, fitness, dreams, etc. But what if, in 2017, you reached beneath the surface and dove in to something deeper?

Setting Sail

When I read this quote, my first thought was of a conversation I recently had with one of my friends. Amie, who is also a yoga teacher, was telling me about her recent skydiving experience in Europe.
