breaking in my platform with Yulady
For the whole story about how my adoring husband rescued me from self-pity and a weekend of pajamas and chick flicks, read my blog about how I ditch the gym when it’s time to get fit FOR REAL.
Today’s post is about what came out of that very-wrong-weekend-turned-right.
As much as I value my daily meditation practice which is made up of mostly four-minute meditations that I sneak in here and there and everywhere (including my car and laundry room), sometimes I need some extended periods of quiet that are simply impossible to get with four kids screaming “MOM” from every corner of the house.
We’ve had a plan to build a yoga/meditation platform in our woods for a while now, but as with many non-work projects, it kept being pushed aside. In last week’s blog, I told you how we were suddenly inspired to do the build and to go green by up-cycling old fence lumber into my little piece of heaven in the woods. Totally free, totally DIY, and absolutely perfect for my soul.

We recorded two days of building and painting the platform, and I included a little sneak peak of my new weekly yoga series “Slim & Strong for Summer” that premiers this Wednesday on YouTube and features my good friend and an amazing yoga teacher, Yulady Saluti. This is yoga for EVERYONE. Yulady guides us (yup, she’s leading me, too) through an entire vinyasa flow class with step-by-step instruction and alignment cues. At the end of the series, you’ll have an entire class to watch and practice again and again to stay slim and strong all summer long. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and my Bliss Notes, so you don’t miss a thing!
This little pile of scrap lumber and leftover chicken coop paint has me so inspired. I can’t wait to start decorating my magical space…
