One vowel makes a big difference.
I am used to a certain level of physical fitness. That could also be read as: I have a visual expectation of my body image. I venture the guess I am not the only one that looks in the mirror and sees squishy sections or a lack of squishy sections and gives attention to them. (Isn't that a nicer way of saying, who else thinks they are fat or doesn't think they are fat?) Good morning, folks.
This morning, I had a moment of reflection a
In the spirit of our Austin Eventing Blog , we have so much fun with Rider Re-Caps we decided to start them here too! Thank you to OM Clinic participant Andrea B. for sharing her experiences and impressions during the clinic. It was with much trepidation I was persuaded by my daughter to attend this clinic. I have owned many horses, ridden many, many years starting as a child in England then Malaysia, my birth country. I am 52 and the horse bug bit me when I was 3. Horse

As my knee begins to heal, I am able to start practicing yoga a bit again. It feels as if it has been eons. Yesterday was the first actual practice I tried to move through.
It was awful. Yes, I said yoga was awful.
Over the course of the last few weeks those muscles that I had been actively engaging were now compensating for others that were not in use and I found myself a bit "softer" in areas that were not as soft prior to knee impact day. The by product of feeling p
I just wanted to share this little gem. Sunday lessons are on hold because of rain and thunder, so I had the opportunity to spend a bit more time relaxing with a cup of coffee (or 3). This image came across my feed from a yoga page I was perusing while thinking about the OM Riding Clinic I am running on Jun 24-25. What a poignant way to think about our conversations. I am sure we have all heard moto-quotes about thinking positively and that our thoughts and words define our
