My Best Of…

An interview with the It’s All Yoga Curvy Crew over at Curvy Yoga. Part 1 today and Part 2 later this week. So.Much.Love.

Good Enough Is the New Perfect is now a real book! I’ve read it and I loved it.

Yes and Yes makes me happy. If you aren’t reading it yet, please stop what you’re doing (ok, after you’ve finished reading TGBTS!) and get yourself over there.  Sarah has created a Post College Survival Kit I wish had existed when I was graduating. Some sound enticing now as a grown up. Do you think she’d notice if a 41-year-old signed up?

Loved this post from Seth Godin. Turning The Habit of Self-Criticism Upside Down

Have you checked in with your 3rd Chakra lately? Michelle’s exploration of this feisty one and her questions got me thinking.

+++++

Curvy yogis Photoshoot/ Yoga Journal Talent Search Update:

Thank you all who five-starred our photos over at Yoga Journal’s Talent Search! A strange experience seemed to be had by all.

I had the opportunity to take a two day workshop with my teachers’ teacher, Mary Paffard, this weekend. We worked on the 5th and the 3rd chakras. It was delicious.

+++++

My Best Of…

“If there is one thing I pride myself on is my common sense, my complete imperviousness to all things zany and new age.” – from Listen to the Quiet Within by Tim Parks. Ed. note: Did I write that?

Mary Paffard has been teaching for over 25 years and she still gets the wobblies at times. This article is her attempt to share ways of working with the wobbles and to see how one can explore this “asana’ just like every other yoga challenge to enhance ones practice and self-reflection. — Heebie Jeebies of Teaching – brilliant.

Other articles from Mary include: Breathing into the Feet, Bobbling the Head: Balancing the Head on the Spine, and Befriending the Belly. – Get some, friends.

Want to take a class with Mary, but you aren’t in California? You can! Here’s the link for her DVD and a review.

“Paffard, a long time yoga teacher in Northern California, expands on the familiar with her meditative approach to yoga practice….Her instructions are clear, detailed and thoughtful, informed by her many years of Buddhist Vipassana meditation…” – Richard Rosen – Yoga Journal, June 07

Pizza, fries and wine – oh my! Nancy over at the Flying Yogini talks imperfection and the beauty of  trees.

Ever wonder how a dog might interpret yoga’s yamas and niyamas? Wonder no longer, friends. Scarlet the Pug told Meredith over at The Pondering Yogini.

I had the pleasure of meeting some of Sacramento’s fashion bloggers this week thanks to Erin at Bows and Sparrows. What a fun group!

Meet Keri – Her blog Headlines and Hemlines documents her life as photojournalist who believes in dressing for the assignment. Tagline: My goal is to be comfortable in my clothes and confident in my skin. LOVE.

Spring Changes

Spring means that change is in the air, friends and with that there are some changes coming to TGBTS.

Monday is the new Sunday. The link love/best of the blogs I read feature In Case You Missed It Edition is moving to Mondays. It will still give you a weekly wrap up of articles and posts related to health, happiness, food, teaching, yoga and fashion.

Wednesday is the new Tuesday because Yoga+Music {notquite 365} is hitting your reader and in-boxes Wednesdays starting this week. Recipes are going to continue to be fast and healthy, however now they will have a new dairy-free slant. I’m still trying to figure this whole dairy-free living out, so I’ll be sharing what I’m learning.

Album recommendations (or at least what I’ve been listening to lately) will still be featured in this weekly post.

Yoga class updates can be found on Wednesdays and on the Yoga Class Schedule page.

If change isn’t your thing, not to worry friends! Fridays will still feature Song of the Day and the weekly show and tell Saturday Senses will still be posted Saturday mornings.

Thank you for your continued support! Be sure to click on the email subscription button in the top right corner so all the posts will be delivered to your inbox.

If you are on Facebook, you can “like” Teacher Goes Back to School and you’ll be privy to some FB exclusive content.

8 Ways to Feel Happier During An Unhappy Time – is Gretchen Rubin some sort of psychic? After the week I’ve had, I do believe it’s true.

If you haven’t yet read The Happiness Project, please stop what you are doing and go get yourself a copy. I’m reading it a second time because it is full of super valuable reminders about how to take care of your own happiness.  It just came out in paperback this week. I bought a copy for a friend and I’m getting one for my birthday. Book club, anyone?

Do you treat yourself as well as you treat your friends and family? New research shows that self-compassion can lead to a healthier, happier you.

Have you met Sally at Already Pretty?  Her tagline: Helping You Recognize Your Own Beauty, One Post At A Time. Brilliant! Plus there is a new scarf tying tutorial – the pretzel.

Do you live in the Sacramento region? Are you needing a little quiet time for yourself and aren’t sure when, where and how to take it?

Well, I’ve got the answer!

First Sundays (that’s today, friends) I am teaching a fully restorative yoga class at It’s All Yoga. It’s called Sunday Snooze: 90 minutes of laying on the floor with blankets, bolsters, and blocks. It’s like a slumber party where I host and you actually get to rest. No undergarments in the freezer or awkward games of Truth or Dare. Just rest.

No experience or special clothes or even flexibility necessary. The ability to get down on the floor and up again is super helpful, however I’ll help if you need it.

If you’d like more information – check out my yoga classes page – or send me a message at TGBTSblog at gmail (dot) com.

Last little bit on rest… Do you know I have a Rest Manifesto? I don’t fool around when it comes to down time.

What makes a great teacher? Hint, it’s not the cute pants. A seriously great post about what makes a great yoga teacher, but really the qualities apply to all kinds of teachers.

How NOT to teach a beginning level class. Again, it applies to all kinds of teaching, not just the yoga kind.

Public workers’ rights are under attack in Wisconsin. Mrs. Ripp -one of my favorite teacher bloggers – lives in Wisconsin.

Here’s an excerpt from her post “I Am a Teacher” –

Teachers are not made in college, they become them in the classroom.  Teachers reach out to anyone that enters their worlds, and they impact every single aspect of this American life.  Support them, cherish them, and right now, fight for them and their rights. We are here to help America succeed and grow, not to take the blame.

Leave out Savasana and replace it with a sitting meditation?!?!? I have to admit I’m ready to start a revolution over the very thought! Madeleine brings it back to what it is all about – the letting go and preparation for the final rest in her post called You’re Dying! Now Try to Relax.

{Funny sidenote: once in a yoga class I was teaching, I referred to Corpse pose as “practicing for death” and the room went really, really quiet for a minute before everyone gave into fits of nervous giggles.}

In case you haven’t heard, we’re adopting from Thailand. We spent a month there in 2005 and I fell head over heals in love with Asian elephants: The freckles! The chubby cheeks! The ears shaped like India! Sarah at Yes and Yes just spent time in an elephant rescue camp in Chiang Mai – check out these enviable photos.

Just so we’re clear, I will be going there someday.

+++++

This next post has so much to love, I’m not even sure where to start. Becky (from The New Perfect) wrote about how her 9 year old daughter just got her first journalism job carrying the profession into the fourth generation in their family. What an accomplishment!

It also reminded me of New Moon, a girls’ magazine and online space, written by and for girls. L-O-V-E!

Speaking of young people publishing…. my students have been blogging up a storm and are super excited when people leave comments on their posts. If you are so inclined, feel free to stop by and say hi.

Hollee over at The New Perfect talks about how she hates blogging because she feels every post must be perfect (holla). She also admits she may have a tiny author crush on our favorite TED talk (researcher) storyteller,  Brene Brown who wrote a new book called  The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are.

I’d love to start a book club with this book. Are you interested?

Monday marks the 100th day of school for me which means 80 more until summer break! J and I are already talking about taking a trip this summer to….. wait for it…… San Francisco!

We grew up across the Bay from the City and now even though we live within 2 hours, we’ve never spent a proper holiday there. When we travel to SF, we do our thing and return either to the East Bay for a slumber party with friends or overnight with his mom or drive all the way back to Sacramento to sleep in our own bed.

Not this time! We’ve decided it is time to take the plunge and stay a few days in The City and play tourist.

I love, love, love Frocks and Frou Frou and this post Breaking the Rules knocks it out of the park. Lilly, the model and author behind this inspiring fashion blog, takes on the fashion do’s and don’ts.

Yoga Journal is holding a cover model talent search. Anna, the brilliant mind behind Curvy Yoga, is advocating that all the curvy yoga peeps submit their pictures for consideration. She’s taking it a step further and is asking for photos for an upcoming post featuring all the curvy folks in their favorite poses.

Cleanse update:  It’s OVER!

Please don’t think I am going to return to my earlier ways. At least not all of them – I feel too good to go back now. I learned a lot this month:

I am, indeed, gluten intolerant.  Rice substitutes are quite delicious and fairly easily available so I’ll keep those.

Dairy has been on my mind for a month and I am hoping to have a smooth reintroduction. Visions of gulping a gallon of milk while holding a fist full of cheese have been dancing around in my head for a while, but I think I’ll take it slow. I would hate to over do it.

Cleanse-worthy dishes are quite delicious. All it takes it some planning, shopping, chopping and applying heat before you eat. Keeping in mind this is an act of self-care/love will help keep that in perspective.

My Best Of…

Teaching Simplicity got it right with Nurturing the Nurturer – teachers take note. Take the time to take care of yourself. Of course, we need to take care of ourselves when we’re sick but wouldn’t it be nice to nurture and nourish ourselves so we don’t get sick?

Another reason to get more zzzzzzzs…. to look prettier! It’s scientific.

Having a hard time thinking of things to add to a gratitude list? This blogger writes a thank you note a day and some of what she is thankful for is not the usual. Love, love, love it.

Are you a sunflower too? I find I perk up like a blossom with the lengthening days. Here’s a sunlight calendar to help keep track of your daylight minutes.

In Praise of Slowness by Carl Honore {one of my favorite reads of the last few years} – he talks about it here. Slow down and stay awhile…

+++++

Cleanse update:  a cold takes away a lot of desire to cook nourishing food. I really wanted someone to cook for me.

So I ate out.

Twice.

I didn’t follow all the rules, however I didn’t give in to all my comfort food throw backs either. I wanted a cheeseburger (I know, huh?). Instead I had a burger sans cheese. I ate some of the bread and threw the rest away.

The next day I went to a pot luck and skipped the dessert and soda table – my usual favorites.

The bowl of M&M’s sitting right in front of me didn’t go untouched, however after I realized I was eating sweets (the cold medicine made me really, r-e-a-l-l-y s-l-o-w), I hid them behind the centerpiece on the table and promptly forgot about them.

Baby steps.

Things I have noticed: comfort food isn’t just about the food when I am sick, it’s also about someone else cooking. Processed foods are convenient, but don’t taste nearly as good as not processed foods. My cold isn’t nearly as devastating as ones I’ve suffered from in recent years. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Cleanse update:  Someone asked me if I was glowing this week. No joke.

I will refer you to Sarah from Pink of Perfection’s post about Radical Self-Care. I really identified with her when she said she didn’t want to sound like a proselytizer. But I have never felt better. Seriously.

Things I have noticed: my pants are fitting way more comfortably, really thinking about what I’m eating is a practice in self-care, you can get a really crappy vegan meal out, and I’m less hungry now than when I was eating more processed foods.

Have you read the WSJ article (via The New Perfect) on Amy Chua’s new parenting memoir, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother? It has clearly touched a nerve, more than 6,000 comments so far and has started a firestorm of articles and blog posts.

I found the article shocking, yet intriguing. I don’t agree with a lot of what she says and does (quite frankly I’m a little afraid of her), however I do agree kids could benefit from more practice and focus on learning. There has to be a middle place.

What do you think?

Do you think she goes too far or is she just helping her kids succeed?

I don’t know about you, but there was a time in my life when I believed that if something didn’t fit there was something wrong with my body. I was too fat and completely misshapen. I would feel horrible about myself and quite honestly ususally console myself with food.

Somehow I finally got over that (I think it’s a combination of getting older and all the yoga). When I saw this post from The Connection Revolution, I wanted to cheer.

+++++

Cleanse update: It’s been a quite a week of learning. Boy, there are a lot of opportunities to eat not-so-good-for-you foods. I was able to resist most and have found support within the bigger group.

Some things I noticed: I don’t miss sweets as much as I thought I would, I am fantasizing about eating yogurt (pretty sure this means I still love dairy), I am feeling remarkably more alert and have lost an inch from my waist – that wheat allergy is the real deal.

Someone asked me why I am doing this cleanse and the best answer I could come up with is I’m tired of being sick so much. Between the 4-5 colds a year and the horrible hay fever I feel like crap most of the year.

If I can feed myself differently and feel better, I am in.

Check out this post from Gluten Free Girl – it’s long, so if you want the part I really like go down to the “Food Lovers’ Cleanse” section.

BONUS! This Swear Word Canister from Bows and Sparrows just made me laugh. I could make some seriously big money from my sailor mouth.

I love the idea of taking small steps to meet your goals. I spend a lot of time getting bogged down in overwhelm and it’s nice to see how other people take big projects and break them into small pieces to get them done. The most important step is giving ourselves permission to start.

Why wait for Teacher Appreciation Day to feel some love?

Mrs. Ripp is at it again. Last week she asked if teaching is a lonely profession and this week she is asking for teachers to notice what is going well with other teachers in their classrooms.

I’ll admit it, sometimes I find teaching to be a pretty thankless profession. I think the simple act of noticing others would help set the intention of gratitude and good will. I’m intrigued by the practice of noticing the positive and acknowledging someone else’s good work.

What do you think?

+++++

This time of year brings up a lot of sadness for lots of people (including me). Between the darkness, gloomy weather, and holiday expectations people struggle. The theme of letting go what no longer works is one many of my favorite bloggers are talking about this week.

Hollee’s hip release and subsequent surrender to the unknown is inspiring.

Do you ever want to let go of what isn’t working (or decluttering your life), but get overwhelmed by the thought?

Havi has simplified and taken the scary and overwhelm out of decluttering with 10 Things Gone.

Be Yourself, But Keep Your Inner Jerk in Check – Gretchen Rubin’s interview with Bob Sutton who wrote a book called The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn’t.

Catchy title, huh? I think he should have stopped at The No Asshole part.

Just so we’re clear, I would not be against someone passing that book along to me to read.

I love Gretchen’s interviews. They remind me of the Inside the Actor’s Studio interviews with James Lipton because the questions are the same each time. All the answers are completely different because of the diversity of the subjects, but it gives the reader a familiar framework. LOVE!

+++++

Speaking of Inside The Actor’s Studio 10 questions… have you ever wanted to answer them yourself? If so, head on over to The Pondering Yogini’s place to do it. 

I did it. I had a hard time picking a favorite curse word. Sort of.

Confession time: I am a minimalist blog  junkie. I adore hearing about people living with less stuff, not buying anything new and making do with what they’ve got. 

Since my mid-twenties I’ve been obsessed with frugality. I’ve read book after book and now I follow many frugality and minimalist blogs.

I can’t get enough of minimalist and frugality blogs.

Oh, the irony.

Recently, I described myself as “minimalist lite” – someone who does all those things above, but hasn’t  made the commitment to downsizing completely.

Yet.

A Peek Behind the Computer Screen

Lucky me got to spend Friday evening with Just A Titch and Blogasana – two of my favorite Sacramento bloggers.

After teaching YogaNap at It’s All Yoga and then falling into a post-teaching-blissed-out-Yin-state facilitated by the lovely Michelle, we hopped into my trusty blue Prius and made our way over to Amy’s newish Sacramento digs {it really is that cute}.

We drank wine from Michelle’s Wine of the Month Club {who knew?}, ate tasty snacks and the laughing began.

First up, reminiscing about Double Rainbows and their ah-maz-ing-ness.

Then we talked about our favorite blogs:

Havi Brooks – Fluent Self

My favorite post from the week – Let’s Try Something Different Today

Gwen Bell – Big Love In A Small World

Kyla Roma – Daydreams from a Handmade Prairie Life

Danielle LaPorte White Hot Truth

Gretchen Rubin – Happiness Project

 

I borrowed this book from Amy and tried not to peek at it while we were talking.

Dear readers, please know you’ll never have to read about what I ate for lunch. Unless of course, it’s sharing a recipe.

We discovered our mutual love for the images on We Heart It and joked about how I could get my readers to click the links in my posts.

Look forward to an upcoming photo of a gun pointed to a lovely 20-something half-dressed woman’s head. Please note she will have an exposed breast and bloody nose, holding a lit cigarette.

At least it will if we find it on We Heart It.

I kid, of course.

But FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLEASE CLICK THE LINKS ALREADY PEOPLE!

{thank you in advance}.

Twitter talk ensued.

I confessed to learning about Twitter from Rhett Miller.

They both laughed at my superfandom.

We talked about how we love Twitter because we like to know what people are actually doing during their day, how there is a fine line between witty and too witty, and all the people we love to follow {personal faves: @naomidunford, @yisforyogini, @sophieandlili, @bowsandsparrows, @4thgrdteach and of course @rhettmiller }

Did I mention the laughing?

And there it is… a peek behind the computer screen.

Rewards, Punishments and Motivation – Something for Teachers (and Employers) to Ponder

Via @gwenbell.

As a teacher, I’m in the motivation business. Most of my students are motivated to do their work and to reach whatever bar has been set for them. They work hard and love the rewards that their hard work bring.

But then there are the students that aren’t motivated.

What about them?

Watch the video. I feel like there is something there to help me help my students, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe you can help.

Did this challenge or reinforce your beliefs about rewards, punishment and motivation?

How do you motivate your students/employees?

How can I help motivate mine?

Michelle asks, “What One Thing?” – as in what is YOUR special talent?

Impermanence — My father has Alzheimer’s disease.  Last night, during a family conference call, we decided it is time to move him into the dementia unit of the retirement community where my parents live…..

Bob has a way of cutting right to the important parts. See if you can read this without feeling deeply.

Good Enough is the New Perfect is the title of the upcoming book by my Twitter friends @holleeinbalance and @beckyinbalance. Their  blog is a treasure box full of gems about issues around work and family. A must read! Plus Hollee is a fellow yogi!

This week’s guest post is by a woman who has 30 HOURS of LEISURE time a WEEK. If that doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will. It sure got mine.

Social Change Through Simple Living pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it? That’s what @RowdyKittens is all about. Tammy S is a former Sacramentan, now Portlander (hello, opposite of me!) explores the notion of living a fuller, richer life with less stuff. I think she may be on to something.

The Beet Goes On is my friend V3’s chronicling of her life in NYC. Filled with food photos that make you want to bite your monitor. This girl rocks.

Last but not least, the woman with so many ideas I want to steal.

Office Hours at Gwen Bell, Big Love in a Small World. – LOVE HER.  I wish I was in Boulder. I just may have to copy this. Who wants to meet for office hours?
