5:30am… The last thing I want right now is to be awake let alone go to a yoga class.
But I know how thankful I am once I get there.
The drive is usually a blur, the first downward dog foreign to my body, but my breath is always recognizable.
I begin to get lost in my breath as we approach our first of many chaturangas for the hour. “Goodnight moon, good morning core,” the teacher says with a smile in her voice.
My core was definitely awake as we did several pushups… talk about a wakeup call!
Needless to say the combination of the teacher, time of day, and sharing it with a good friend makes it all the better.
Lately between work and midterms it has been super overwhelming. I usually exercise, but even that doesn’t seem to cut it right now. I found this article and know I have been in need of doing this.
And when I say declutter I don’t just mean cleaning out my closets and donating to good will. I mean intense borderline extreme declutter, but I need it. If you need some ideas of what you might want to cut back in your life try this blog where I got my inspiration. Hopefully it helps some of you!

I also made this fantastic juice today! It was all citrus which I usually don’t do, but I had a mad craving for it.
It constituted of:
hunk of ginger
Run through your juicer and enjoy!
I used a recycled Kombucha bottle of mine to store the juice and it had this awesome quote on it…
