It’s June! Finding the blessings of Summer.

Published on June 3, 2018

When you live in the Central Valley of California, you are surrounded with the blessings of agriculture. First, we have the blossoms and then we have the bounty of fruit and nuts they gift us. Living here is a blessing of abundance. But then of course, there is the hot weather that goes along with […]


See you May 31!

Published on May 11, 2018

When I take a vacation, I always worry a bit about yogi’s not hearing that class has been cancelled for awhile. Hopefully YOU got he message! We will resume class on Thursday 5/31 from 5-6:15 pm. I likely will not get time to post for that class, so expect a surprise practice!


It’s May, let your creativity roll!

Published on May 5, 2018

Here comes May! Flowers, warmer weather, alot of outdoor living and activities. Our theme this month is Creativity: The practice of imagination. There are as many ways to express our personal creativity as there are individuals to express them. Besides our yoga practice, who can we uncover our creativity thru out this month? I am […]


Transforming thought

Published on April 29, 2018

April has been a month of many types of transformation: weather, our gardens, and hopefully, ourselves. One of the transformations I am interested in for myself is transforming my internal dialogue. I think this “chatter” influences our day to day lives in ways we rarely acknowledge. It is very ingrained in us. It becomes to […]


Transformative power of light

Published on April 22, 2018

We all have people in our lives that bring the sunshine along with their presence. After spending time with them, you feel uplifted, enthusiastic and yet, calm. That gift that they have can be acquired by anyone of us, if we recognize, then, cultivate it. Once recognized, we can take active steps to bring a […]


With adversity come wonders

Published on April 15, 2018

Almost two years ago now, our area experienced a wildfire. Called the Goose Fire, it ravaged a wide swath of Black Mountain, which is in our backyard. Each Mother’s Day, Black Mountain is open to the public to walk and revel in wildflowers native to our area. After a fire, many unexpected wildflowers show their […]


A month of transformation

Published on April 9, 2018

Here in the Central Valley, our short Spring has begun. Likely, the rains are subsiding as the foothills are green with budding flowers all around. Our Spring here is wonderful although far too short. Our own transformations are life-long, maybe being a bit more noticeable at this time of year. Perhaps you have been faithful […]


Swamij Froggy

Published on April 1, 2018

One of our long time Yogis brought this wonderful Frog to me last week. He certainly represents perfection in Tree Pose! He will grace our garden. I named him Swamij Froggy. You’ll notice in the title this week, I call him Swamij Froggy. When the”j” is added to the title Swami, it becomes a term […]


Are you closer to the balance you desire?

Published on March 25, 2018

We’ve had month to focus on this topic, from the abstract to the concrete. Are you any closer to your goal? I know that I for one, will keep trying. Thanks to those who hung with the change we had last Thursday. We will be back on track this week! Monday nite 3/26, 6:30-8pm We’ll […]


This week in yoga….

Published on March 18, 2018

I took an opportunity this weekend to take a girl’s weekend at the coast with fellow yoga teachers. Thinking about our topic of balance this month, it was certainly what I needed to re-balance. So, this week’s post is brief and right to the point! Monday nite 6:30-8pm March 19. Let’s create our own practice […]
