Hot off the press: MixLife

I’m teaching a noon yoga class today (Tuesday Dec 1 2020) At MixLife. This will reoccur weekly.

MixLife is a really cool platform offering a huge spectrum of classes. With instructors who have passed MixLife standards. I am glad to begin teaching in conjunction with MixLife. I highly encourage checking them out for a super wide variety of classes. Dance, Photography, Lots of DYI. Poetry, Arts/Crafts, etc. I am excited by the prospects with them.

Mulling over class theme of the day – and how to promote my classes.

  • Thursdays 5 pm PST (to be posted today)

I have self-diagnosed computer dyslexia. Super embarrassing. I laugh it off, but underneath I am so embarrassed. It is not that I am stupid, and I do my best to figure things out. I experience a GREAT deal of stress that turns my dyslexia button on. I dunno. Things always work out.

I am compelled to send out major shout-outs and love to my anonymous computer angels that have guided me through the years. I love you all so very much. You have earned major karma points. Now I need to manifest another who will help me with a website.


just search for yoga, search for Theresa on T,R PST

AND – very shortly

Rouse Yoga – schedule TBD and I will update

Practicing together online allows us to maintain human connection. Someday it will be optional, but honestly, much to be said about convenience factor


Online Yin tonight at 7:30 pm

Looking forward to teaching online Yin for Vivify Yoga NM. My Yin is a gentle multi-level class and it is a wonderful way to wind down for a great night’s slumber 🙂

You do not have to be flexible to practice yoga. Just willing to let the process unfold step by step. 🙂

Online is a great way to check out Yoga if you have been interested but intimidated by going to your first class. I get it, I was there once. With a regular practice Yoga is a life-changer. If you have any questions – make a comment and we can correspond.


Dream Manifestation

Vivify should be re-opening in early June in accordance with NM guidelines. I love my personal yoga practice – but I love teaching just as much. I am teaching several on-line classes for Viv in the interim ( Teaching to a camera is challenging, but it is getting easier.

My furlough as a Physical Therapist Assistant expected to be Mid-August I recognize I am not alone – and also that I have some financial stability that so many others lack. So not trying to complain – simply state my facts.

One of my dreams is to become a remarkable Yoga Instructor specializing in injury prevention and rehabilitation. In addition I want to offer Life-Coaching assistance.

I have extensive experience working with clients of all levels, ages, sizes, and/or based on personalized needs. I am not diagnostic nor prognostic; I do have training in rehabilitation of a myriad of physical injuries using yoga techniques. I want to teach my clients on and off the mat.

Contact me if you are interested in a free 15 min class by end of May 2020. Schedules and pricing pending for private or semi-private classes.

You do not need to practice in GoGo boots

A few fun ones from yesterday

I made the mistake of downloading these pictures before I wrote anything. For whatever reason I can’t get text before the pictures. I used to be able to do so. Another reason to hate WordPress.

Anyhoo, dear reader, I hope that you are holding up in quarantine. The situation is so tragic and sad. To think that Donald could have nipped this in the bud. I detest DT. He is beyond incompetent. He lies and lies some more. I could go on, of course, but I’ll just say the man has blood on his hands. I fervently hope his is voted out of office. No matter, the guy has some bad karma. Eventually he will pay the price.

Somehow, someway, we will get through this. Yet our society is forever changed.


GoGo Boots cheer me up

These days are suck a clusterf* huh? Yoga – as always – is my happy place. Especially in GoGos.

I would ordinarily be teaching my beloved classes at Vivify today, but we have been mandated – as all fitness businesses – to close until April 10. I love my classes and my family. I hope our little studio can withstand this storm.

Yoga asana sure is different in GoGos. Here’s my latest installment.

Concrete is hard

All tissues require stress.  You stretch cells in your body to change the factors they produce that will change your body with patience and dedication. 

Yin Yoga is one of my favorite ways to do so.  I believe it is best to practice yoga in a group setting in addition to a personal practice. Being in a group facilitates friendships, share group energy, gets you away from  your own distractions at home.  It doesn’t matter whether you are currently flexible or not. My classes are definitely all levels and all ages (early teens to 80 year olds thus far!).  The changes I see in the students are far reaching with dedication.

*I think* the most important goal of Yin Yoga is to practice being present and find peace within yourself.  Range of motion is huge too, and that will continue to increased with a dedicated practice. I won’t go into the myriad of benefits here. 

I teach Yin Yoga at Vivify Hot Yoga in Rio Rancho NM.  I would love to be part of your yoga journey.  The setting an ambient room with quiet music. I try to keep it light-hearted.  There is nothing to fear and much to be gained. Namaste,

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

So you like creepy statues. I regret that I said anything about i, that was most ahimsic on my part.  Mea  culpa. We are all entitled to prioritize and admire what does it for us.  So sorry Universe.

I’ll admit I’m super stressed about mid-terms this week. So I’m reactionary.  I question if I’m on the right path.  I like a lot of things about school.  And it looks like I get to do a rotation in an out-patient clinic and not in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.  So that is pretty exciting! I just wish that I could teach yoga full-time and still be financially secure.  I know that is what I’m awesome at (lol, I have a long way to go)

Yet once again the universe is reminding that life is precious and there are no guarantees.  One of my fellow HS classmates died this week of cancer.  I send his family the best of blessings as they heal.  He died way way way too early.  I didn’t know him well, but I considered him a cool guy and I know his friends loved him dearly.  Blessings Russ.

Ok, here are today’s pictures post a very fun 6 a.m. class.  Then I MUST STUDY FOR TODAY’S MIDTERM!!!!.


Starting this week out right!

Just got home from a great class by Derek at Vivify Yoga Studio.  I really like this studio a lot – and being there made me happy thinking about subbing there Saturday.  And I finally met Lisa, one of the owners.  Liked her a lot, not surprised in the least on that 🙂

Catching my breath before cleaning up.  I’m teaching a private class at 11:30, very stoked about that.  Until then I really ought to weed my garden.  And slather love on the sweet Basenjis.  I pretty much raced out the door this morning so I have many morning belly rubs to dole out

Here’s the pictures on my last download.  Yesterday messing around on the porch and this morning taking shot for #yogagivesbackchallenge for today and tomorrow.

Gotta love Friday!

I really enjoyed hanging out with the dogs in the yard this morning.  It was nice and mild – but it is gonna be a hot one again.  I actually enjoy the heat, as long as I can retreat into my A/C house and car.  Currently 72, but it is going to be in the mid 90s.  The Basenjis are bound to be nice and lazy while I clean the messy crib.


I am teaching a private class over the noon hour, errands and hopefully I’ll make it to a yoga class at 5.  I could really use it, I’ve been too busy teaching and taking care of the pups the past two days to actually get on my mat and PRACTICE.  A yoga instructor *has* to practice lest risk teaching get stale.  So even if I can’t make it to class, I will be doing a serious practice in my home studio.  I also have to do my IG challenge shot for #yogagivesback.

Here are a few more pictures from this morning

also yesterday’s shots at Exhale (really fun class, gosh I love teaching there)

On that note, off to water the containers outside. Unlike Seattle, container plants require daily watering.  It is so much drier and hotter….. 🙂  If I could just teleport my kids here…. life would be pretty stellar.
