Guest Blog on Create Write Now!

When I had the idea to offer online  journaling workshops  I mentioned it to my sister.  It turned out she had recently taken a journaling workshop with Mari L.

When people learn that I am a yoga teacher they tend to conjure up ideas about my personality. For example, here are three things sometimes assumed about me based on my profession:

1) I am calm all the time
2) I cook, usually from scratch, with organic, wholesome ingredients
3) I enjoy nature, the outdoors and hiking

I have seen more than a few surprised faces when I reveal that none of those traits describe me. Read more
