“Keep on going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it.  I have never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down.”

Charles F. Kettering


Never-Ever Give Up May 16, 2012

I am so grateful that our student Skylar shared this video clip with me!  It gave me the opportunity to reflect on where I am in my journey of growing YOUYOGA.  At times I feel success, other times doubt, and most the time overwhelmed.   In my day-to-day life it can become so easy to get overwhelmed with the simple task……running errands, keeping up with chores, taking care of family, oh and let’s not forget growing a yoga business!  It also becomes equally easy to lose focus on myself, and my personal goals.  Having the opportunity to view this inspirational video clip reminds me that all things are possible, and my battles will only get as big as I allow them to grow!!!

It also illustrates the importance of surrounding yourself with others that believe in your mission…..not matter how big, or small.  As I have stated before, at YOUYOGA we believe in you, until you have the courage to believe in yourself.  That message flows in both directions…..our students belief in our message, and our teachers belief in our mission makes it easier for me to push forward through the success, the doubt and the times of being overwhelmed.  These experiences are universal…..not unique to me, or anyone else. So, when you are able to bare witness to others’ perseverance as the overcome their struggles it gives you the courage to believe even more in yourself.

Please watch this video clip and let yourself be inspired to step out onto the ledge of your dreams, and find the courage to leap into your destiny!  Namaste

Sunday Inspiration 35 May 6, 2012




Chair Pilates defined by Darrell Wray May 2, 2012

Pilates Body by Valentin ::: Pilates Studio in Dublin, CA


Chair Pilates helps you to locate your true core by using tactile touch.  Once the true core, or “powerhouse’ is located you begin to understand that all stability, and increased balance starts at the core, and flows out to the rest of the body.   All the way to the finger tips and toes.

When the breath is used in unison with a Chair Pilates practice it helps to give the body strength, allowing you to flow from one movement into the next.  It also helps to detoxify and replenish the body leaving you feeling energized after your practice.

A Chair Pilates practice helps to stretch and strengthen the entire body, one day at a time, one practice at a time.  You’ll also learn that Pilates is never to be forced.  It’s never to leave the body hurting or sore, but to make the body flexible, stable, and strong.


May Happenings……come join us this Spring!!! May 1, 2012

The month of  May has rolled around on the calendar yet again…….and with it comes longer days followed by cool, crisp nights.  There is also a new sense of possibility for growth and renewing ideas that were left in winter’s path.  If we stop to listen we may find that we’re still longing to be more healthy, more balanced,  as well as enveloped in more energy with less stress.  Yet, we still wake taking on the same task……. in the same patterns……. while yielding the same results!

How about a change in action to celebrate the change in season?  YOUYOGA welcomes YOU to share in a yoga practice with us.  Gain increased health, increased balance, and increased energy as we decrease your stress together!
