Arrivederci!

Published on September 16, 2017

We have been diligently studying Italian for four months now. My husband has made great progress, reaching 27% fluency (according to our language app Duolingo). I have only achieved 2%, but I think I have got the important words down. This is our last week together of yoga until after Thanksgiving. I am leaving you […]


Let’s be sure self-care is part of our inclusion!

Published on September 9, 2017

In many past post, balance has been a recurrent topic. Finding balance in our physical bodies as well in our lives in general, turns out to be a continuous challenge. Including self-care in our daily life requires planning, balance, and the attitude of importance. It is true that we cannot fully love and care for […]


September invitation: Inclusion

Published on September 2, 2017

It seems that this month’s topic is very timely. Our world is going thru a time where our diversity has increased our divisiveness. Our country is polarized for many reasons. Hurricane Harvey actually acted as a catalyst to promote unity of cause: helping Texas. Even in yoga, the topic of inclusion is at the forefront […]

One of my lifetime favorite books is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery. I still have my first copy. The Little Prince teaches us alot about living, loving, tragedy and hope.

Staying positive!

Published on August 18, 2017

For me, each week this year has had its own unique challenges. It feels like an emotional rollercoaster, from outrage, to sadness, to disbelief and concern. All this emotional exertion is taking a toll on the resilience I have been working on, chipping away at the edges. I continue to stay on the path of […]


Moving into Yes

Published on August 12, 2017

How we move in our bodies, transmits our attitude. How we walk, our posture, our physical openness, speaks to the world about us. Many times, we do the same things with our bodies each day: drive, sit, exercise. Our bodies develop a way or pattern of movement. Yoga helps us develop new ways to move […]


Willingness: The Practice of Yes

Published on August 5, 2017

I think it is interesting that one of the constant(and first) words in a toddler’s vocabulary is,”No!”. As we mature, does “No” continue to be our go to word? For me, I may not say “No”, but I am likely to be thinking it. Changing our attitude includes changing our thinking, our internal dialogue.At first, […]

Strength within

Published on July 15, 2017

“The roots of resilience….are to be found in the sense of being understood by and existing in the mind and heart of a loving, attuned and self-possessed other.” Diana Fosha Our temperatures this month in the Central Valley may have tested our personal resiliency. So many days with high day time temps and little to […]
