Vision and action

Published on September 22, 2018

The Dalai Lama imparts so much wisdom to us is such a few words. This quote helps me realize that not only do I need vision, but I need to see how(a plan) that vision can become a reality. Without the action component, the vision goes nowhere. The positivity of both the vision and the […]


When a vision disappoints

Published on September 15, 2018

Ever have a vision, or a view of the future, disappoint you? Often? I think this is a common human consequence of not being able to control everything. I venture a guess that most of us had dealt with large and small disappointments in the way we envisioned our futures. I think it’s fair to […]


Forward, ever forward.

Published on September 9, 2018

I guess, we could stop searching, stop looking ahead, stop thinking about the future. Our mantra may be ,”be present”, don’t worry about the past or future. But is that really the way most of us can live moment to moment? For myself, I am constantly attempting mindfulness in my daily activities, which perhaps, negates […]

Welcome to September and all it brings. We start the month with Labor Day on Monday 9/3. There will not be a yoga class on Monday. But… this week starts the return of Chair Yoga on Thursday. I hope to see the seasoned yogi’s and new faces who are exploring. Our theme this month is, […]


Karma and Self-determination

Published on August 25, 2018

We are finishing up the month of August this week. I’ve spent a little time thinking about our theme for this month, self-determination. Relating the concept to yoga, I think about the idea of karma. Simply put, karma is a concept that says those things we do (thinking, actions and the like) directly influences what […]


Monthly theme

Published on August 18, 2018

This has been a busy and scattered month, so I haven’t put a spotlight on the monthly theme, self-determination. As I think about this focus, I think about my yoga practice over time.I found the practice in my early 50s when my body had different abilities, capacity and needs. Years later, I have changed and […]


Coming back home

Published on August 11, 2018

Coming home after trips away can be joyous. Our lives may be full, but we crave some variety, new scenery and experiences. Summer is giving way, ever so slowly, to Fall. I am happy to be home and armed with new skills and information on keeping our yoga practice relevant, personal and accessible . Here […]

The Spine: More than just your low back

Published on July 14, 2018

I promised this dramatic picture about our head and our spine. Last week, we focused on our backs.I think alot of us think about our back from our shoulders down, and forget that our neck (cervical spine) is a crucial part of the spine (cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions of the spine). Each region of […]
