Flatten your tummy

The Bliss Between

Swimsuit season is approaching and crop tops are still in style this year (what?), so lots of us are kicking it into high gear with our workouts and nutrition. Or you know, if you’re like me, at least thinking about kicking it into high gear, haha. But wait, Erin, are you telling me I need to look perfect in a swimsuit? Obviously not. There’s a…

Kindness of Strangers

the bliss between

Earlier this week, I came home to an envelope in my mailbox with just, “Rachel (?)” written on the outside. No address, no stamp… this envelope had clearly been delivered by hand. Given that my name is not, in fact, Rachel, I first wondered if it was even meant for me. Then I had a brief flash of, “omg what if it’s anthrax or a…

Are you feeling joyful?

Are You Feeling joyful the bliss between

Just a quick post, because I want to share something that happened last night. Remember my most recent post about Raising Your Vibration? Well, the coolest thing happened last night: (ps- go check out that post if you haven’t, it provides some background for the story I’m about to tell.) Feeling Joyful I was at the yoga studio, just tidying up some things, walking around…

Raise your Vibration

the bliss between

It’s Autumn. The days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are falling. It’s time to talk about raising our vibrations. Vibrations are not a concept solely for hippies or new-age, crystal-wielding weirdos. It’s for everyone (really). But what does it mean, exactly, to raise your vibration? What do people mean when they say they’re “vibrating at a higher frequency”? For the longest time, I didn’t…

adventures in yoga: SUP Yoga

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga

There are so many new ways popping up to experience yoga… Surely you’ve seen the videos of baby goat yoga on your social media feeds? Then there’s nude yoga, yoga raves, and karaoke yoga, to name a few. On the other end of the spectrum, there are so many old ways to experience yoga that I’ve never tried either… inyengar, ashtanga, kundalini… and I want…

You are NOT an idiot… stop calling yourself one

The Bliss Between

How many times a day do you call yourself an idiot? When you drop your phone on the ground? When you make a wrong turn? How often do you tell yourself you did something stupid? Maybe when you try to pay for coffee with your driver’s license instead of your debit card? Or perhaps when you accidentally put your cashmere sweater in the dryer? We…

Love List: August

A round-up of all the things I’m loving this month. Because let’s face it– while happiness cannot come from material goods alone, sometimes they can help make your life better, easier, or prettier! And that’s something to be happy about. Enjoy!   Mira White Granite Water Bottle I have been carrying this gorgeous water bottle around with me everywhere!

Get Fired Up: Yoga Poses for Energy

Yoga for energy

It’s almost August, and it’s HOT. Days are long and the sun can be draining. What should be a season of play and fun sometimes makes me want to just take a nap… which is no way to spend the summer! When I need an energy boost, I turn to yoga. We often use yoga to relax, but with the right poses, yoga can ENERGIZE…

Joy by trying

  Joy. We all want it. We're all searching for it. Chasing it. Sometimes it eludes us. At times it seems completely unattainable. And then, once in a while, we catch it. Maybe we hold on to it briefly, maybe longer. It's always in flux. And that's okay. Because joy can be found in SO MANY WAYS. And in SO MANY PLACES. One of my…
