May Newsletter

Hi lovelies, welcome to May. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in the first year of Lucas’ life is that kids definitely do better within a routine. Ugh, routine. I’ve always associated that word with being rigid and boring, and made considerable efforts to resist routine most of my adult life. One of the main […]

Hi friends, welcome to April! Based on my Instagram feed, I think many of us are feeling that green thumb pulse with life as the weather gets warmer. I for one, have been spending quite a bit of time, energy, and money on my garden, planting small versions of what I hope one day will […]

March Newsletter from Yogaleena!

Hi friends, happy March! Is it sad to say that the highlight of February for me was the Winter Olympics?

Welcome to November, friends, a month marked by pumpkin spice lattes, the first peek at holiday decor, and for many of us, lots and lots of family gatherings!

30 Days of Self-Care

Hi friends, guess what I did yesterday? I finally had my tires filled with air…after 3 whole weeks of having the “low tire pressure” warning light on. If you know me, this shouldn’t surprise you, I tend to push things riiiight up to their breaking point all the time. I am that person who waits […]

the power of cOMmunity

Hi friends, welcome to my birthday month, whoop whoop! Aging tends to have a negative connotation in a culture obsessed with wrinkle-free skin and youthful stamina, and I admit there is a part of me that isn’t super pumped about having to add another candle to my cake every year. Luckily, though, I really wouldn’t […]

August Newsletter: Life is hard and that’s ok.

“When we keep choosing between right and wrong, we spend our energy sorting life rather than living it.” -Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening I have started this newsletter four times and counting, y’all. For some reason, the thoughts in my head this month have been all over the place and I’ve been having a […]
