What is the rhythm of life? Remember, Atlas shrugged, too. Seeking an answer is like trying to understand the tree by only looking into its shadow. In the silence, the beat, butterfly wings pulsing at your heart. Witness sacred in mundane. Take care of yourself and wear your apron. Sweep your own floors. Make dinner […]
Sometimes we make important life decisions based on what we think we should do. The “should” can become a barometer for being loved or accepted by others. Much of my life was spent as a purposeful outsider… Never wanting to be adopted into one group, I joined them all. It is like how I can’t […]
The sacred overwhelms my heart Love for the fearful covers doubt Perfection lives in the heart of nature Return to her roots! Your rapture is found in her flow! The golden thread that weaves me as a tapestry braids me to you. You Me The Divine… The Trinity of the Now.
Do you think I am fat? If I were in front of you in typical yoga spandex, would you judge me? I’ve gained weight and I’m not pregnant. I’ve followed the brand new, yogi-approved Seat Diet. See it… eat it. As a yoga teacher, this could be considered career suicide. Instead of slaying my means […]
My favorite thing to do is be creative… however that shows up – whether through creating an experience for my students, cooking for my friends, painting, or photography, it is something that brings me an infinite amount of satisfaction and joy to share. There are a select few who have seen me in my creative […]
Today, it was announced that researchers at CERN discovered a particle that is in line with the “God particle” Higgs believed to be at the core of the Theory of Everything… It explains why matter has a mass. Pretty cool stuff. Before this discovery, it was just a theory… An idea… Somethig floating in the […]
Getting behind the wheel is something that gives me a feeling of freedom… the car door is like the door to a secret passage way that you KNOW will lead you to adventure. I packed up my car with my dog in the backseat, Joseph Campbell and Kahlil Gibran audiobooks, two new music albums and […]
Are you in the water or on the shore? Do you navigate or do you stand? Because navigation is, itself, taking a stand. The answer isn’t wrong the sail the flag The truth lives in your sole as you find your wings an essence in the unseen.
I feel blessed. This week, I take my Advanced Yoga Studies students on their graduation retreat to Playa del Carmen. I’ve been meditating on what to teach and I’m thrilled to say we will be exploring several ideas: Don’t Hold Back – Show Us Who You Are Are You Fiercely Loving? Inspire & Be Inspired […]
Ever since I saw my first TED talk by Jill Bolte Taylor describing her experience during her stroke, I was enchanted with TED talks. I, too, had a series of small strokes that left me with double vision and debilitating headaches. My left eye could no longer move and I had resigned myself to always […]
There is a man who pushes a cart around the neighborhood, collecting cans from recycle bins. I’m assuming he is homeless. He’s become as familiar as my next door neighbor with his routine stop in front of my house and we always wave, give the obligatory smile, and the neighborly exchange of conversational pleasantries. At […]
Perfume of coffee and taste of unshaven legs… the anticipation of art as a container for infinite expression. How does a shadow dance? Where do glances fall? As she approached the tarmac, she wasn’t yet cleared for landing. Baited in breath, the path became clear. There is something rich in mistaken identity as the winter’s […]
Inspire me beyond illusion In the space where we are both seen Listen Taming the wild dream Love into your vision Let’s tie you up in my apron strings
I’ve been asked by hundreds of people about yoga privates for creatives. OK, that is a lie… no one has asked me about that but I have found that as an artist, my yoga practice is the single most valuable thing that helps me remain creative. I am now offering custom privates for any creative […]
A week ago, I was out walking and came across this pond. It seemed magical as I looked at it from the shore. It is as if the pond wanted to insulate itself with this covering… a security blanket adding an aura of solidarity, protecting the fragile and sensitive nature of the water. Algae is […]
Identity… it is created… it is stolen… it defines us and it can bring us to our knees. What do you identify with? Emotions? Thoughts? Titles? Labels? We all struggle to find balance through external mechanisms. We try to balance by holding on to something that changes and fades. Isn’t it worth noticing that when […]
