Writing about yoga is hard.
Because of the language and personal nature of what happens on the mat, posts and article don’t always have the same kind of reach as your run of the mill exercise blog.
After five months out of commission due to injury, getting back to my mat [...]
Yesterday afternoon I hauled my aching bones to the orthopedist where I was x-rayed and examined, determining the fate of much more than my upper body injury.
A rotator cuff tear, bone spur (possibly related to the rotator cuff itself) and a month of physical therapy wasn’t nearly as painful to [...]
Whether or not you practice yoga or consider yourself a spiritual gangster, I’d encourage you to check out the clothing company with that eponymous name.
I’ve been wearing their tees, tanks and sweatshirts for a few years, and they are a staple to my day-to-day wardrobe. My stacked yoga tank is in [...]

I was [...]
As my bio states, “I’m wild about words.”
So when one of my yoga teachers shared this video explaining the common mispronunciation of the word yogini (the “super common way” to reference a practitioner of yoga, which I consider myself to be) I watched and listened with that ooey gooey feeling [...]
After months of inexcusable, mid-week inactivity, I made the effort to get moving this second week of spring, despite freezing cold weather that isn’t on the same page as the calendar.
But with beautifully blooming trees and a smidgen of sunshine making its way through annoyingly grey clouds, the motivation to get it on [...]
Reason number 5,234,22 to practice yoga.
Spontaneous eruption of joyful tears prior to a hot rocking, fire inducing kriya led by the most open and divine of river guides.

Everything is keeping me from yoga this morning.
1. Two workmen are supposed to call me at 10:30. I told them I’d be available to talk to them at 10:30, but I was mistaken, as I’d gotten confused about my classes start time and said, “9:00,” instead of,”9:30.” Right about the [...]

Warrior, a little closer to heaven.
Finagling would be required, and friends would need to be gathered.

Wanderlust Vermont takes place on Sutton Mountain [...]
The hub for all I do, marthawills.com documents life from a working mom's point of view. When not mothering, I manage the social media needs of small businesses through Wills Media Group, LLC, and write a weekly column for Raleigh's News & Observer online entitled, Are We There Yet? Most recently, my passion for health and wellness led me to become involved as a consultant for Beautycounter, a company that's making a difference by educating about toxins in products, spreading the word via the web.
