Flowing with Felines – A Seattle Yoga News Feature

Hi all! Boy its been a while since I’ve written here, but I’m back! I took a bit of a pause on my site as I began working closely with the lovely folks at the Seattle Yoga News over the summer. Since working with them, I’ve had the opportunity to attend some pretty incredible yoga events in the Seattle area (check out my feature on how to build a better core here). One of the more unique experiences I had this season incorporated yoga with some of our favorite fuzzy creatures at the Seattle Meowtropolitan. Yoga with Cats happens every Tuesday at 8:30 pm. I couldn’t recommend a better way to beat the winter blues than by stretching with these felines. Check out my feature on Seattle Yoga News here.

While the physical aspect of yoga has been linked to improving the cardiovascular system, preventing injury, and building strength and flexibility (among others), there is no denying the emotional benefits our practice has on us. Whether we are looking to improve our health, looking to discover ourselves, or looking to find peace in the chaos in our lives, yoga can bring balance and healing to our hearts.

The Beautiful Trail Between Vientiene, Vang Vieng, and Luang Prabang

While I’ve heard horror stories about the trail conditions between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, I just couldn’t justify buying plane ticket. A $15 bus ticket beats a $100 plane ticket in my book. Beyond this, travelling by land meant being able to add another city in my travels. I had heard of the loveliness of Vang Vieng from many locals and travelers alike. I figured, why not! The money saved on a plane ticket means a little extra room for adventure. At 6 in the morning, we met at the bus station and set off!
