2009! Soon to be gone!

Published on December 22, 2009

I asked my husband what kind of year he thought 2009 had been and he had a look of horror on his face as my answer. Yes, 2009 brought some challenges that I (we) were unprepared for in general. So much occurred relatively at the same time, which makes it even more difficult to keep […]

Published on November 24, 2009

I would like to introduce the Fall 2009 graduates of the YTT at Ananda Yoga! Can you feel the relief?

It’s all over, except the written test!

Published on November 20, 2009

It seems so hard to believe that the month is coming to a close and it is time to go back into, as they say here, “the matrix”. I have completed all requirements, except the written test which is tomorrow. I am sure I’ll be fine. Everyone will be fine. I have decided to take […]

Ten days left:YTT

Published on November 11, 2009

Made it past the big hurdle of presenting an asana (pose) to the class while it was video taped. Afterward, there was an extensive dissection of your “performance”. The poses were given by a random draw. I got a very easy pose (standing backward bend). Even so, alot was expected of each of us. Had […]

YTT, Week 2

Published on November 3, 2009

I didn’t even have a minute to post last week, the first week of training. The reading and classes took up every non-sleeping moment. Week 2 is also full, but I found a few minutes to come up for air. I knew that this program was going to have a spiritual component. I didn’t bargain […]

Happy Fall, Happy Yoga Teacher Training!

Published on October 18, 2009

After having to delay and re-schedule, it is nearly time for me to leave my home for my long awaited training. I am very excited and very hesitant. My hesitation is not about the training, more about a one month absence. I have been preparing for this, even so, it seems like there are so […]

Rounding the bend, third quarter wrap up

Published on September 20, 2009

It’s been six months from March 7, 2009. That’s when the life of my family took a new direction. It seems to me that nothing is as it was before that day. That is not to say that many things aren’t in better shape, others still in a state of confusion. All in all when […]

What takes 9 months to come to completion? Well yes, a human life, but also the healing of my fracture. After the prerequisite time to heal a fracture (@ 3 months), my ankle didn’t “knit”. Introduce a little device called a bone stimulator (Exogen 4000 by Smith and Nephew) and 16 more weeks of healing […]

A “goodbye” to another old friend

Published on August 27, 2009

In 1972, my parents purchased 648 S. Oakland and made it the family home. I never lived in this house, but my sisters and brother grew up here. It was a bargain in 1972 due to the condition of the home ( a circa 1908 craftsman style farm house). Some improvements were done over the […]
