Welcome to Love Lunar Yoga. My name is Bridget and I am a nurse and yoga teacher in Portland, OR. This site will have so many wonderful blog posts about wellness, yoga, lifestyle, studio reviews in my area, fun reading lists, guest authors, and more. Always a work in progress. Join me in my journey of being human.
Just a little background on me. I lived in California until recently when I moved to Oregon in 2016 to start my career. I am a nightshift nurse and I work on an adult medical floor primarily with acute on chronic conditions, mostly regarding the cardiac and pulmonary systems.
I started doing yoga post college and pre-job. I was in a pretty low place in my life and really I just needed something to get me out of bed. Yoga became my place of healing very quickly and without my even noticing. It all just sort of happened. Life around me was storming and I was slowly sinking further into my own darkness. Yoga was my flashlight to guide me through to the other side. I’m here now, so proud of how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learned in the process.
As far as my reason for starting this website. Honestly, it’s just fun. I’ve been wanting to start a real blog for years…YEARS (just ask my college bestie/roommate). Well, now I finally feel like I have something to write to. I have a purpose for my website and I think that’s important. My purpose is to share my love of yoga with you in the hopes that you will find inspiration in my words and my practice to get up, move, breathe, and discover your love for yourself and others.
The name Love Lunar Yoga came to me at about 3am one night as I was laying in bed trying to sleep but ended up staring at the ceiling for 2 hours. Being a night shift nurse, days off can be hard. There has to be a balanced sleep schedule and that can be super difficult to do when your work nights don’t allow you to sleep til 9am in the morning. But I can’t function if I live my life completely by night so that means I have to shift my sleeping schedule a few hours so I can wake up and still see the sun on my days off. ANYWAY (that was long winded), I tend to see the moon more than the sun. My yoga is by night…by moon light. And I think there’s something beautiful about that.
