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 […]

December: Hope-The Practice of Expectation

Published on December 2, 2017

What has your year been like? Has it met your expectations? Was it all you hoped it would be? Let’s stop for a moment, during this season of “revving up”, to slow down and look at our year. Maybe you have to break the year down into blocks of time (some good, some challenging) in […]


Returning

Published on November 25, 2017

My backpack and my hat are symbols to me of my travels. Constantly with me, protecting me, helping me both items are both functional and symbolic. I look at my yoga practice in the same light. Functional as it helps to maintain balance, strength and breath. Symbolic, as the movements tell my mind to settle, […]


It’s been awhile….

It has been a long time since I have been with our little yoga community! We will get back together on Monday 11/20 for our Thanksgiving practice. No Practice on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day.

Arrivederci!

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 […]


As August ends…

Published on August 26, 2017

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. How to say, “Yes”.Pema Chodron, a buddhist nun and dharma teacher, offers her thoughts about what the Little Prince teaches. She suggests […]


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 […]
