Yoga for Menopause

By Regina Rowley | August 17, 2023

I was blown away with disbelief and frustration when my years of healthy food choices and active lifestyle were not enough to keep me from the menopausal madness as my body transitioned. So what’s a yogi to do when her body is wracked with pain, her body weight continues to climb, her body odor is […]

A young man in his 30’s has been living with chronic back pain from an auto accident years before.

What is Yoga Nidra?

By Regina Rowley | April 5, 2023

Why practice Yoga Nidra? What is it? Many years ago a friend and fellow yoga teacher had discovered Yoga Nidra and kept raving about how wonderful it was. Eventually, I managed to take a Yoga Nidra class. I wish I could tell you it was all peace and bliss, but that wasn’t my first experience. […]

What is Restorative Yoga?

By Regina Rowley | April 10, 2022

   Restorative Yoga is a powerful practice for our minds, bodies and spirits. During Restorative Yoga we move from doing to being. In this simple act of non-doing we enjoy mental and emotional well-being, and increase our vitality. We may also smooth our relationships, and increase our creativity and productivity. In restorative yoga doing less, […]


Mental Health – Lovingkindness

By Regina Rowley | October 13, 2021

Mental health, like our physical health, is dynamic & fluid. My mental and emotional health directly impact my physical health, so I must be intentional with all. Years ago when I began my yoga teacher training, I self identified as a burnt out Type A personality. Mentally and emotionally, in the depth of my being, […]

Curiosity, Compassion and Connection

By Regina Rowley | June 19, 2020

Several weeks ago, one of my interns told me our I Am Priceless community needed to hear from me. In a time of painful social unrest, many are feeling the impact of hatred and disconnection. They needed to hear from a leader they respected. As one who understands the power of words, I was unwilling […]

Inner Peace in the Midst of Turmoil…

By Regina Rowley | September 27, 2018

“…Anger and frustration are frequently signs/symptoms of deeply buried pain…” Once again we are at a crossroads of a powerful entity questioning a survivor who dares greatly and speaks up. Questioning her truth because she waited decades to speak. The purpose of this post is to state my own experience and the timing of disclosing […]


Rambling Thoughts on Hopelessness

By Regina Rowley | December 26, 2016

Unexpressed pain leads to hopelessness. Writing, provides a means for me to express my pain, to sort the mess out and start letting it go. Our feelings need to be expressed, they are energy in motion. If we repress, ignore or deny our feelings they don’t go away. Instead they fester and come out deeper, […]

Warning! Regina’s Rant…

By Regina Rowley | October 9, 2016

While the following rant is mine, I speak up for all who have yet to find their own voice. As one who greatly dislikes the insults, punches, and toiling of politics, I stay out of the arena. I have cast my vote without posting, sharing, tweeting, about it. And while I will agree both current candidates […]


Trust Your Intuition – Honor Your Feelings

By Regina Rowley | August 23, 2016

When we live almost entirely in our conscious mind, our intuition will be undeveloped. Our culture favors logic and when we are unable to logically defend our reasons, our intuition tends to be discounted. This process begins in childhood leading us to discount our own feelings and subconscious. We learn to doubt our ability to […]


Sheryl, You Are Priceless

By Regina Rowley | March 3, 2016

I was just reaching out to a few people regarding the upcoming I Am Priceless: Voices of Victory Over Violence  book when I came across this interview with #SherylUnderwood #SherylIsPriceless by #People writer, @EmilyStrohm. We all have a story. Sometimes, it includes tragedy, violence and unimaginable things. While we may not always be able to control what happens, […]

Teen Dating Violence

By Regina Rowley | February 7, 2016

The month of Love… Last year I wrote about Love and 50 Shades of Grey. You can read it here: 50 Shades… My views haven’t changed; coersion, stalking, and/or controlling another person is NOT love; not in teen relationships, not in adult relationships, not in heterosexual relationships, not in homosexual relationships. NOT EVER! February is also […]

As I have healed forward, it is now time to complete […]


When It Doesn’t Make Sense

By Regina Rowley | January 6, 2016

Everything Happens for a Reason… I know I have said this. I have mimed this expression, which others have said to me, and around me. Just as so many other thoughts have been inherited and embraced without question. Among the varied life lessons 2015 brought me, it is to be more comfortable questioning that which […]


You Never Think It Will Happen To You

By Regina Rowley | January 5, 2016

Regardless of where or how you meet, intimate partner violence, aka: domestic violence, is real. It is not your fault. No one is immune.
