Late Blooming is Still Blooming!

FREE2justB

So, I’ve been behind with my Blogging 101 Class. Yes, let the wet noodle beating begin!

In my defense, I have been working through a USM class, trying to write daily on my first book, and experiencing a learning curve teaching new Aerobics Classes at work. What a refreshing place to be today, life FULL of exciting, life changing activities all in line with my dreams and goals. One of which is establishing my identity in the Blogging World, oh but I have digressed…..

Being a perfectionist and thirsting for knowledge, I couldn’t just pick up on today’s Blogging 101 assignment. So, without further delay here is my next assignment:

Today’s assignment: write a post that builds on one of the comments you left yesterday. Don’t forget to link to the other blog!

My Journey Into “Gentle Yoga”

As part of Blogging 101's assignment for today, I am sharing a few links that I really love! I recently read an article in “Prevention Magazine,” ( June 2014 edition, by Hillardi Dowdle) extolling the virtues of “Gentle Yoga.”  The article concentrated on Jillian Pransky, a New Jersey-based yogi.  What was completely amazing to me… Continue reading My Journey Into “Gentle Yoga”
