Thanks for visiting Almost Gracefully! I’m Lee Manale, a 50-something late bloomer with an empty nest, a stressful day job, and a love for writing and teaching yoga. (And dogs. And birds. And just about anything chocolate.)
is the process by which I’m navigating midlife! I started this blog about four years ago when my beloved meditation teacher suggested I write about yoga and see what happens.
And since my yoga practice affects everything about my life off the mat, there’s a lot to write about here: managing the stress in life (which is why I started practicing yoga in the first place all those years ago); striving to live more mindfully and compassionately; finding the joy in the everyday moment; and yes, dealing with the challenges and appreciating the blessings that come with aging.
