Happy December!
What?! DECEMBER?! Am I the only one who feels like 2016 has gone by in a flash?!

Well, if you’re trying to get a grip this winter, and if cooler weather has you heading indoors for your daily health & wellness practices, yoga may be a good option for getting – or staying – on track this season even if it’s not typically a part of your fitness regime. Plus, it’ll have a whole bunch of other positive impacts besides the physical, I promise! 🙂

Thus, today’s newsletter is just a quick note with a few of my suggested resources about that very thing:

– Gather Yoga‘s FREE 45min beginner flow yoga class taught by yours truly.

– Gaiam’s “Untangle” meditation studio app – if you like my voice, you can find 6 of my recordings here. If you don’t like my voice, listen to the other recordings 😉  Time Magazines Top 50 Apps for 2016!sarah-plummer-taylor-meditation-recording-on-gaiam-app

–  Gaia – go to the MyYoga tab at the top to access videos. Great variety of teachers, experience levels, and length of classes. Easy to pick length of time, type of class, teacher, etc.

– My YouTube channel, which desperately needs updating, but has a few poorly-recorded videos from years ago with simple yoga sequences ;-p I plan to add more current videos in 2017.

– the Calm app – for more secularly-oriented mindfulness meditation recordings galore!

– utilize the search tool on my blog to find articles that sound most helpful to you. I highly recommend this LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION.


– if you’re in DENVER, practice with me IN PERSON! 🙂 Mondays 5:30pm at The Freyja Project or Thursdays 7pm FREE classes for veterans, friends, and family at VFW Post-1.


For RESEARCH on mindfulness and resilience, more broadly speaking, you may enjoy these articles in:
– Advances in Social Work

– Californian Journal of Health Promotion

– Journal of Military and Veterans’ Health

or this 5min video:
– Resilient Leadership Retreat


Ultimately, I’m just a liaison between what the research shows us, and what you can personally implement in your own life. Mindfulness is a PRACTICE, after all, not a perfect. 😉 

Lastly, if you’re interested in knowing more about the workshops I lead or the consulting and counseling I do (yes, I can do this remotely – you don’t have to live in Denver!), please don’t be shy about asking me some questions. I’d love to spend some time chatting with you.

In the meantime, if we don’t connect virtually or in person, I do wish you the very best during this season. And, hey, consider sharing this resource with someone you love who may be curious about how yoga, meditation, or mindfulness can fit into their daily life.
