Finding Yoga

What lead you to go to your first yoga class? Here is my story

A horse led me to yoga, with a quick kick to the face. :-) Yes, you heard me right. A horse and a kick.

Riding 2010
I was horseback riding occasionally with my sister at a barn here in my town. My sister is quite a great horsewoman, riding English. She jumps and shows. She is amazing. Me, well I was just learning to ride.

Blessed with overabundance... the garden this summer?

So things have gone a little bit crazy in my 'trial' garden this year. I say trial garden as I had some empty space down the side of my house that was literally doing nothing, it was just dirt. It doesn't get full sun, about 4 - 5 hours or so per day in the summer so I didn't think that would be enough to really grow any of the veggies I wanted to - tomatoes, cucumbers, herbs etc.

Well in Simi I guess 4-5 hours of full sun is plenty!!

Got Wanderlust?

This Sunday was WanderLust - Yoga in the City, an international day of fundraising for Yoga AID.

Yoga in the City started the same morning in Sidney, Australia and traveled the world like a wave in a day, finishing on the pier in Santa Monica, CA in time for sunset.

Decedant Banana Maple Cake

I went an 8:30am yoga class this morning. I don’t eat before I go. As you can imagine I’m ready for food after. Our yoga studio is in a suburban strip mall. Of course there is a donut shop on the corner. Today I was craving a maple cake donut like you wouldn’t believe.

Vegan Pesto

One of my favorite staple recipes is this pesto. I'm so excited to share it with you!
It's Vegan and Paleo and oh so yummy! I add this as a sauce to everything, fish, veggies, as a seasoning in turkey burgers or meatballs. Top tomatoes with a spoonful of this... heaven.

Why Wild Women?

Exploring the creative connection between yoga, life, art/design and the great outdoors.
Why start a blog?

Ever since we met - at a yoga retreat (of course) in beautiful Montecito, CA we found, not only did we share a passion for learning more about yoga asana, philosophy and teaching this to others, but also a shared love of all things creative.

However both of our homes happen to be in suburbia just outside Los Angeles. A beautiful, peaceful, safe and quiet  place which is great for us as yoga teachers but by design lacking a little of the culture and creativity we are searching for.

The question we both wanted to answer is how can we bring in more of the things we love adventures, yoga experiences, art, food, hiking and design, and generally living with a little more consciousness and awareness on a daily basis.

Living in beautiful Southern California there are so many places to gain inspiration from which can spill over into all aspects of our lives. So it is our intention to share our passions and bring you with us as we go...


love sarah n leonie

Why Wild Women?

We're talking more about our connection with the earth and life around us rather than crazy, tequila wild, although that has been known to happen! The suburban bit we already mentioned!!!
