Back at the hotel after a whirlwind of a day. I'm blogging very sporadically these days because I'm just so overwhelmed, there is so much going on and I don't have time for anything other than what's on my jam-packed agenda each day. We've been planning this event, Magic in Motion in Stockholm, for a long time. With it we are launching oneOeight Sweden, the Swedish branch of oneOeight, and with it, a brick-and-mortar yoga studio! We're launching in 2017 and I can't wait for you all to take part of what we are creating....

Mindfully Powerful in Pregnancy

Are you a pregnant yogi who loves power vinyasa and is craving a good sweat? Look no further, my new dynamic class "Mindfully Powerful" on oneOeight is perfect for you! Before the physical practice begins, this class offers a discussion on how to modify your powerful practice during pregnancy so that you’re still feeling strong while also caring for your body and your baby. We’ll talk about poses or movements to avoid, why you should avoid them, and substitute postures you can do in their place to ensure a safe practice. Once we start to...

Finding Balance in General, Pregnancy

costarica-rachel-299

Expecting mamas! Ground yourself in the present moment, root down into the earth, and find stability from within! Practice "Finding Balance" with me on oneOeight! Starting in a tall seat, we’ll check in and begin to transition into a place of inner-balance. We’ll connect to our breathing, creating a beautiful dance of the breath between inviting in on the inhales and letting go on the exhales. Through grounding stretches we’ll gently move from our center, challenging our stability early on in the practice before moving into an invigorating balancing sequence. This class will help you...

New Jersey LOVE! in General

IMG_1365

New Jersey you are amazing!!!! So I was a bit hesitant to fly this pregnant - originally I hadn't planned to travel in November/December but to stay home and ground myself during these weeks of pregnancy. I didn't know what to expect or what my energy levels would be like but the flight went super smoothly and I felt good all the way. We even got a random upgrade to business class! That has literally never happened to me before; we were boarding the plane and they just switched out our boarding passes from seat...

Pregnant or not, we could all use a little bit more peace in our lives this week. Join me in a restorative new class on oneOeight, "Calming Flow"! Together, let's wind down, ground our energy, and calm the body and mind! This prop-filled prenatal class will utilize a pillow, bolster, blanket, and three blocks to ensure you feel extra supported in your practice. To begin, we’ll take time to consciously bring our awareness to the breath, create space in our day, and energetically arrive at our practice. We’ll start with slow side-body stretches before moving into...

I'm sitting in my garden, crying. I'm absolutely devastated. I went to bed early last night, fully expecting love to trump hate in this election. I woke up finding out it didn't. So now I'm sitting here with a big lump in my throat, watching the sunrise, holding my belly. Praying for our future. It is important that you know this: Misogyny did not win last night. Sexism did not win last night. Racism did not win last night. Hatred did not win last night. What happened is: fear won. Briefly. A whole lot of...

We have moved bedrooms and its m a g i c ! We're renovating the upstairs bedroom and bathroom in preparation for Poppyseed so we temporarily moved down to what used to be my yoga room/our office and i have to say... I may not want to move back up! We put fresh paint on the walls right before the transition and cleaned everything out and suddenly, the room is an oasis. It's much larger than our upstairs and last night I had the best nights sleep I've had in months. Woke up at 5am...

oneOeight Prenatal Class: Meditation to Embrace Change in Pregnancy

Hello beautiful ones! As part of my Prenatal Yoga series on oneOeight, I created a meditation to help other pregnant women celebrate the joy of pregnancy and embrace change during this exciting but often challenging transition time from maidenhood to motherhood!   This meditation will help to ground you in the present moment, moving awareness through your body and tuning inward. Shift energy away from your mind to listen and receive from your heart-space.   Reflect on the inner transition of stepping into motherhood, and what that means for you. Explore any resistance, fears, or...
