Years ago in yoga teaching training, I received a piece of advice that has stayed with me about how we present ourselves to the world. We were discussing different teaching styles and were told that we would only develop into great teachers by channeling the best version of ourselves, not someone else. So, I decided to teach disco yoga (yep, you read that correctly!) because that...

This Thanksgiving, I want to take a brief moment to share how the idea of “giving thanks” has the power to completely change your life.

Are you familiar with the popular books The Secret and/or The Law of Attraction? The authors of both books unearth for us the long-held simple, yet profound, wisdom that we get what we focus our attention on. We are literally in the process of cre...

They say the spiritual purpose of family is to force us to interact with and learn from individuals we would never choose to have in our lives. It makes a lot of sense to me as so many family relationships are rife with difficulty. And so, for many of us the holidays bring a mixture of joy and dread. We both look forward to spending time with the individuals we love and at the sa...

A funny thing occurred this weekend. Sunday morning arrived, I grabbed my usual mug of coffee and sat down at my computer to brainstorm my blog, and for the first time, nothing happened. Inside my brain, dead silence. It felt like the juice had been completely squeezed out of the orange… no more golden drops of deliciousness to let trickle onto the page.

It was literally hour...

November, 9, 2016. The day after the big day. I feel like I have literally witnessed the full spectrum of human emotion over the last 14 hours. Customers and employees distraught and in tears. Friends and colleagues walking on air with a renewed sense of hope. The one common thread is that this election meant something, in some cases everything, to pretty much everyone.

I used to...

It finally hit me last night as I struggled for the seemingly thousandth time to wedge a new dress into my closet between dozens of tightly-spaced hangers: I HAVE to clean out my wardrobe!

The consequences of my over-packed closet have extended far beyond just the frustration of having to muscle my way in to introduce a new or freshly-laundered piece. Because of my bulging closet,...

Growing up, I never quite understood why my mom didn’t enjoy the holidays as much as we did. Now I know. I know it’s difficult to sink into the moment and have fun when you’re making sure everyone is fed, the house isn’t torn apart, and the kids don’t overdose on sugar.

While chatting about Thanksgiving at LYB, we began to think about ways to simplify Thanksgiving dinner so we can...

If you’re one of those organized individuals who begins gathering holiday gifts in July, you have my deepest respect. Really, that’s so very smart. Spread your spending out over six months, save yourself the last-minute shopping, crowd-fighting angst that defines December for so many people.

The reality for many of us, however, is that we’re so overwhelmed with life’s daily to-do...

I just finished reading Alain de Botton’s The Course of Love. In de Botton’s words, the book is about “a couple, Rabih and Kirsten, [who] fall in love. They get married. They have children. Society tells us this is the end of the story. In fact, it is only the beginning.”

While The Course of Love is about marriage, I find the thesis applies to almost everything in life, including...

At the insistence of my best friend, who has been my biggest champion since the beginning of this great adventure, I set out this week to reflect on my first full year in business. What seemingly began as an initiative to build the perfect closet turned out to be a more profound journey into the true heart of yoga.

Since we’re a yoga and loungewear boutique, you can imagine how of...
