Top West Asheville Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly Restaurants 

Nothing is better than a healthy post yoga meal.  But with so many choices here in Asheville, it can be hard to choose.  Here are our favorite post-yoga, vegan and vegetarian friendly restaurants.  Simple Cafe We are so lucky to have Simple as a neighbor.  They are a locally owned cafe with the most delicious juices and smoothies.  They use mostly organic fruits and veggies, and I always leave feeling great.  Roxy’s Fav: is the Good Times smoothie. Insider tip:  Pregnant are ready to get that baby out?  Ask for the “baby dropper” smoothing.  It has dates and pineapple (both said to naturally induce labor).  I can just say, it worked for me!     Bim Beri Bon Beautiful space and beautiful food.  BBB serves real, feel good food.  Reza (chef and owner)...

My Postpartum Journey

I am now 7 months postpartum.  I am a yogi.  I own a yoga studio, and I taught yoga until I was 40 weeks pregnant.  I really didn’t miss a beat.  Right after my birth, I can not tell you the number of people that said, “You look great!” or “Wow, already in your jeans?” or “Did you really just have a baby?”  These are nice things to hear, but do you know what these comments don’t address? How I was actually feeling.  I had complications after my birth (which so many mothers have in some shape or form).  My body was working extra hard to keep me functioning and to keep my baby healthy.  So, on the outside, I looked fine. But on the inside,...

Mothers Day YOGA

Dear Ones, I did not expect to spend my first Mother's Day in quarantine.  But this is "what is," and part of yoga practice is accepting "what is."  As I meditate on the divine feminine, I feel the power of unconditional love.  I see examples of motherly unconditional love all around me, especially in nature.   I feel the strength and destructive power of the divine feminine in the wind.  I see her intelligence in her ability to heal, adapt and change.  I smell her sweetness and fertility in the new blossoms and blooms. All around, I feel the support, love and care of Mahadevi.  This Sunday May 10, Mothers Day, practice with me at 10:30am to give thanks to the Mother. Want to help the Mother's in your life connect...

live stream yoga

I tried LIVE STREAM Yoga and I liked it

When my local studio temporarily shut  its doors and started live streaming yoga classes, my feelings were mixed.  I was grateful to be able to practice, but I was skeptical.  Part of the reason I love attending yoga classes is being able to breathe and move WITH people.   The more I thought about Live Stream, the more I thought about why I attend yoga classes in general.  I already practice at home, so why DO I attend yoga classes?  My answer: sangha, or community.  I crave the connection with other like minded individuals.  I thrive on deep conversations, friendly smiles, and hugs from friends. Now that I remembered my Why, I decided I would approach Live Streaming with an open mind and give it a try.   I...
