Who’s Behind Within and Without?
Miriam Lamey is a Pittsburgh-based writer and yoga teacher. She doesn’t believe in anything being ordinary, and curiously seeks beauty everywhere. In her yoga classes, she teaches kindness, mindfulness and acceptance, in her writing, she conveys honesty through creatively interpreting life. Miriam appreciates an excellent Manhattan, a killer album, a long walk on a Saturday, and the peace in simplicity. Follow her on Twitter @mirseven and on Instagram @Ldym_07.
What’s with the writing?
Miriam writes creative nonfiction, and has been published with the Doctor T. J. Eckleburg Review, and with Rebelle Society. She also writes the odd music review for Pittsburgh’s City Paper, continuing her tenure as a music writer now in the Steel City and adding to a host of clips from outlets like Spin.com, The Boston Phoenix, Paste Magazine and the KEXP Seattle Music blog. Miriam has covered the beverage industry, commercial real estate, travel, fashion, education, marketing and new media, and architecture as a writer. She feels pretty confident in writing about anything. Except maths.
You Said the Magic “Y” Word: YOGA
“For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” –
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Change is never easy, at any age. Miriam was set on being a writer and through she had her dream career – which really was a vehicle for a life-changing meeting and the introduction to yoga. She lost that job, went to a yoga studio, and discovered how it felt when receiving and enjoying actual yoga instruction. After a great deal of learning and growth – and maybe a few other situations that lead her to seek change – Miriam decided to become a yoga teacher and help others in the way that she was assisted and encouraged. She completed enrolled in Sacred Sounds Yoga’s 200 Hour Teacher Training Program with some now dear and incredible friends in February 2015.
