#buildayogaBOOty Instagram Challenge with Chickadee Says!

Hello Darlings!

If you follow Chickadee Says on Facebook or take a peek at the questions I leave at the end of my yoga posts here on the blog, you might have noticed that I love to know what all of you are looking for in terms of yoga. Generally speaking I fashion a “5 Yoga Poses for ________” post in response. However, one of my most requested posts is for poses to shape, lift, and build your yoga booty!

Yoga Poses For Headache Relief

Hello Darlings!

Now, I don’t know if it is the season changing (grumble) or Denver’s rather erratic weather, but my allergies (which, I rarely get thanks to these tips- yep, tooting my own horn) are out of control this fall. And along with the itchy eyes, sniffle-y nose, and over all rather surly demeanor, I have been getting headaches like it is nobody’s business. Now generally speaking, I have a number of remedies I use for headaches- my favorite is Traumeel (yay holistic medicine!) but my box of headache helpers tends to stay in my medicine cabinet. So, when I felt a migraine coming on when I was teaching at the studio I pulled out some yoga moves and the headache subsided!

What I Ate Wednesday: California Tripping

Hello Darlings!

This past weekend I had a ball out in San Francisco and San Jose California with a couple of friends from my Boston College and high school days- both of which I hadn’t seen in ages! As it goes on pretty much any vacation, I ate really well. And while I could have been a bit better at snapping all of my meals, I have quite a few delicious pictures to show you- so I will let them speak for themselves.

Picture Sharing Made Easy: The Seahorse App



Hello Darlings!

Being Twenty-Six I feel like every time I scroll down my Facebook feed I spot another engagement, and another wedding hashtag so you can follow the images that are posted on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I know from experience that trying to save all of the pictures so that they are in a central location and available for everyone to use is a huge hassle. Insert Seahorse.

Barre 3: Beautiful and Brutal (In the Best Way Possible!)

Hello Darlings!

I had always been curious about taking Barre classes. They sounded like fun, but for me if I am going to go workout, I want to get my butt kicked, and I (very wrongly) assumed that Barre classes were more pretty than functional. Oh, how wrong I was.


Now I know I shouldn’t have assumed that classes at Barre 3 wouldn’t be difficult because, quite frankly, many think the same thing about yoga, and I happen to pass the Barre 3 Denver location as I drive to teach each week. But alas, after Barre 3 reached out and offered to set me up with a class pack and a subscription to their online classes I thought, why not?
