"Happiness is a warm blanket" and February things

news podcasts Feb 19, 2021


How are you dear human?  Sending a hug across the internet right now and a way to go- it's February 2021 and we made it this far!

I'm excited to share a few calendar events, some podcasts I did with friends, and my friend Nancy Torres' new book info below.  Some happy things to hopefully perk up your February.

Mark your calendars:

February 25, 7pm I'll be chatting live on Instagram with VaHomeschoolers about Homeschooling and Special Needs. Happy to answer any questions and say hello!

Friday, March 5, 5:30-6pm, I'll be hosting Author Nancy Torres on my Instagram Live and she'll tell us about her new book, her favorite parent tips, and more. I love her new upcoming book, sharing loving affirmations and I'm happy to share it with you.

Need something to listen to? Check out two podcasts I had fun doing with friends:)

Coffee with Caregivers Podcast (Jess Ronne's book Sunlight Burning at Midnight is a deep journey read) was a fun chat with caregiver Jess.

Gentle Yoga Tools

I've been sharing private yoga sessions thru ZOOM (which makes me miss human in person yoga time but something is better than nothing so I'll take it).  I thought I'd share some of my favorite yoga things, especially for restorative yoga.

Now, it shouldn't ever be about spending money on something that can be done anywhere, freely, with whatever one has. So, these are some fun tools and things that bring me joy and some are super affordable, some are things I budgeted and saved for over time, to invest for long-term use.  (I receive no kickbacks for sharing them, these are just me sharing some cool things).



I love several mats, these are a few of my favorites:


Jade Elite S Mat

Jade Harmony (tried and true made of natural rubber)

Jade Voyager (makes a great travel one)


If you need a non-rubber mat, I also love my Manduka Pro-Yoga Mat

 You can get lovely bolsters from so many places. Hugger Mugger makes some lovely ones and mine have held...

Can't wait to hear about 2020-2021 School Year.  It's universally understood that 2019-2020 was just a different journey that we don't have to get lost in (but feel free to share any relevant notes if that will serve).

I have a booking system set up, with auto forms, and if you need any assistance, let me know.

Hi beautiful folks! I’m grateful to be here.

For my newbies, I’m Sarah, homeschool mom of 3, one of who has Down syndrome and autism, I’m an integrative learning coach and yoga therapist student. I like writing, helping folks face learning and teaching obstacles, and doing related workshops and teaching. I’m here clear obstacles that pop up.  I'm not perfect. My homeschool and kids aren't perfect.  We're folks journeying along, each day, seeking joy and purpose.

I’m wishing us all the best.

I’m a history geek, love Sashiko embroidery, and I hide in the library/coffee shop when it’s not a pandemic.  I live in Fredericksburg, Virginia USA but work remotely now so time and space aren't big boundaries (time zones are LOL:).
