Yoga Off the Mat: Coach or Crutch? 🤔 Whether we’re talking about a health/fitness/wellness coach, a teacher/coach, a counselor or other Health Care Professional, or even a trusted friend, there’s a big difference between a coach and a crutch. A crutch is an assistive aid in a time of need, hopefully something that’s only necessary short-term, and even if it is needed long-term, you can learn to live with independence through modifications with a crutch. A coach, on the other hand, is a person who accepts and acknowledges your current abilities and also challenges the status quo. A coach sees your capacity and encourages you to rise to your potential. Have you found yourself being a crutch for someone who truly has the ability to be more self-reliant? (This can be the slippery slope of co-dependence!) Or maybe you’ve been leaning on your personal “crutch” for too long and it’s time to stretch yourself? It’s easy to get a bit too comfortable in our relationships at times. And it’s never too late to reflect and reset yourself🥰 Wishing you the humility to accept/be a crutch when necessary and the strength to stretch/be a coach when needed as well 😊😌 ... See MoreSee Less

Love this! A good coach works hard to keep a perspective that leverages growth! Keep growing or cut free!
MyYogaJoy Monday brings you relief from lower back pain and indigestion￼ while promoting grounding and well-being with Apanasana Pose! 😁🥰😌 ... See MoreSee Less
Yoga Off the Mat: recently I had the opportunity to view Swiss artwork, and I was repeatedly drawn to this sculpture. The figure is in a variation of Apanasana Pose, a posture that can be restorative, grounding, and even help with digestion and lower back pain! Her face is complete repose😌, and her outstretched arm is the same arm I’ve been healing since January.
So what are the off the mat messages?
1) yoga is everywhere!😁
2) when something calls you, whether it’s a piece of art or a life calling, it’s worthy of your attention.
What’s calling you?😶 ... See MoreSee Less

Yoga Off the Mat: you may or may not have noticed that I’ve been a bit absent from social media this past week. I’m totally embracing my most recent share of allowing oneself Grace and Space by spending time with my family and for the most part being “unplugged.” What have you been doing to nurture your soul?😌🤗😊 ...

Yoga Off the Mat: I was walking with one of my dearest friends and we got to talking about feeling badly when we don’t “do” as much as we feel we should in a given day. It reminded me how important it is to give ourselves Grace and Space—we are human Beings, not just human Doings.
Okay, so how does that happen? So glad you asked! By intentionally reserving time to practice self care, to rest, to eat nourishing foods, to read inspirational thoughts, to spend time with cherished friends and loved ones, when the entire intention is to simply be present😌❤️

Yoga Off the Mat: “View through my windows on a rainy day”… Rain can blur and soften edges, leaving an impressionistic image. With all the messages that accost our senses, rainy days can offer a reprieve, gentle grounding, and encourage reflective introspection. What is your favorite way to experience a rainy day?🤔☔️😌 ...

Yoga Off the Mat: I call this pic-collage “Yoga with Yoda”😂😂 I’ve been spending time with my French Bulldog nephews, and they haven’t quite gotten the memo about boundaries during ‘yoga time.’ It’s simply a reminder that life is full of distractions that challenge your focus, and that can be the real lesson. Plus, it’sa great reminder not to take things too seriously👍😁🤗 ... See MoreSee Less
