The Purple Rock Dream

I never dream.  Well, of course I do. But I never remember them. My giant bouncy house of a brain does the following..  Takes forever to go to sleep. Hello headphones and weighted blanket…  Once I’m asleep, I sleep like I’m dead. It’s stone cold blackness.  Then in the morning I wake up like a […]

A Letter to the Karate Kid on the Day of her Yoga Teacher Training Graduation

Dear T,   It seems hard to begin stating how proud I am of you for being brave and moving forward into a new chapter of your life.     You spark a light inside me. So if you do that for me, it must happen in others. Time to share that gift with the […]

Yoga Tools

This is the first lesson I teach everyone when they come to yoga class: Look at your own eyes in the mirror. Simple, but not easy.   Toes and heels touching. Look at yourself in the mirror.  Lift your chin up. Relax your shoulders. Stomach in. Spine straight. Look back into your own eyes. Don’t […]

Why I Keep Sharing The Story Of My Rape

Trigger warning: Sexual assault. At 13 years old, I was the silliest, chubbiest tomboy. I excelled at sports, friendship, and having a unibrow. I was awkward, but to be fair, it helped me to develop my kind, fun-loving personality. Boys weren’t lining up at my locker. Okay, actually, they were. They lined up to ask […]

The Light: Tales of Self Discovery

What are the two most powerful words in the English language? I am. Because what comes after “I am” will shape your life. What you believe after I am, you will become. So I sat down and tried to make a list of who I was. Not who the world thought I was. Not Wife, […]

You’re Somebody’s Mother the Poem.

  You’re Somebody’s Mother By Britt   My house is sticky as can be. Everybody has to pee. I wouldn’t trade with any other. After all, I’m somebody’s mother. Somedays I’m smart, wise, and kind. Tomorrow I may contemplate leaving one behind. Strangers stop and say, “How cute!” They are, but maybe not the time one […]

Being a Loud Woman and Other Tales of Making People Uncomfortable.

As the great poet Moana once said, “The call isn’t out there at all, it’s inside me.”   I have a voice.   It is loud.   It gets louder, when I get excited.   My yoga teacher trainer said I was the only person she has ever had to tell at teacher training to […]

Grief is the Price You Pay for Big Love

Moana is my favorite kids movie at this point in time. Most kids programing is painful garbage. But I can get down with the voyager princess. It could possibly also be that every time I watch that movie or hear a song from it, it reminds of my Nana. I love being given a reason […]
