Our memories of perseverance

Published on February 11, 2018

This week I have spent some times remembering the times in my life where I persevered. Just like the pain of childbirth, the pain of these times is hard to feel in the present. I remember the lack of sleep, the lack of self time, worrying about how my children where REALLY faring. When I […]


Our theme this month: Perseverance

Published on February 3, 2018

It’s a rather interesting coincidence that the month of February we are focusing on perseverance and that February is the 8th anniversary of Monday Nite yoga class. The community of yogis who have ebbed and flowed thru our class these last years gives honor to the idea of perseverance. Thru the many ups and downs […]


It’s the end of January…how did we do?

Published on January 27, 2018

Change is hard. By the end of January, alot of folks have abandoned their “New Years’s Resolution(s)”. some, have modified their resolutions to fit the reality of their life. There’s nothing wrong with that! One way you can bring change into your life without feeling like your resolutions were a bust, is to bring intention […]


Why we march or don’t march

Published on January 20, 2018

In January 2017, many of us chose to attend the Woman’s March. For me, it was a time of deep concern, astonishment, fear and sadness. We again, in 2018 have an opportunity to march together. Another year under our belt has let us see clearly the directions our country, it’s people and the world in […]

Take some time to renew

Published on December 25, 2017

We are in that “mid-holiday” time: those days between Christmas and New Year’s. The excitement of Christmas is wearing away from our thoughts and we slowly move to replace it with reflections of the past year and anticipation for the New Year. The cold, sometimes overcast, infrequently wet weather brings a quietness that rivals the […]


Coming back to the Light

Published on December 22, 2017

When I saw this beautiful sconce on the wall in our Venice hotel, it immediately brought to mind the soft light at Year’s End: candles, tree lights. The beauty of the early winter brings to mind the past and the possibilities of the future. The ancients were grateful for the returning light which was their […]


Coming of the Winter Solstice

Published on December 16, 2017

This quote from Albert Camus has spoken to me all my life. I first read it as a teen, having no idea what life had in store for me. Many times,particularly hard times, this quote would pop into my head, warming my heart and providing me comfort. This was probably one of my first self-care […]
