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 […]


The Empathy Map

Published on July 7, 2018

I try to find every opportunity I can to see signs that our world is turning toward love. This Empathy Map is a tool designed for businesses to teach their staff the skill of empathetic customer service. While I would hope that most of us saw this attitude modeled in our families, that is not […]


A time for empathy and compassion

Published on July 1, 2018

Our hearts stir. Tears well in our eyes. Our sensibilities are outraged. We are ashamed of our leadership’s decisions, actions and words. We can protest, discuss, support with our money, and yet, we may still feel so powerless and ineffective.What can we do in the moment, in the moments, of each day? I feel like […]


Each day, a new chance for blessings

Published on June 24, 2018

Published on June 16, 2018

Several years ago(2015), the UN recognized June 21 as the International Day of Yoga. Although not well known as yet, this recognition made a clear acknowledgment that Yoga was now in the international eye. The date coincides with summer solstice (and occasionally Father’s Day) marking the day as one that integrates an astronomical point in […]


Our yoga blessing

Published on June 8, 2018

We have a practice that is both a blessing to us and our bodies/spirit, but also gives us the opportunity to share a blessing with each other. It seems that the word Namaste is known or at least has been heard by most everyone. When I ask new students if they have heard the word, […]


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 […]
