Cultivating self-compassion while healing

Published on January 9, 2020

Now moving into my 9th week of recovery. Looking back to prior to week 6, I focused on doing my exercises (and yoga practice) three times a day. Part of this intensity was getting to be out of the sling for awhile (ahhhhh), alleviating the stiffness the immobility in the sling generated and just enjoying […]

Uniquely, singular YOU!

Published on October 14, 2012

Seeing this last little black eyed Susan, holding tenaciously to life, I thought of how each of us are so much like this little flower. When we are so overwhelmed by the world around us, it is difficult for us to see ourselves as we truly are. This is where I see yoga’s gift to […]
