Home Yoga Practice Jan. 26-29: Sticking with it

Sticking to the same thing is hard. I know I’m a fan of (if not addicted to) variety. I don’t like to eat the same thing every day. I don’t teach the same way every time.

Honoring our national union on Inauguration Day with yoga

“What better day than our Inauguration Day for us to maybe keep in mind our greater connection? “So, what is it that we wish to send out, not just what we want to develop for ourselves on our mat? …But maybe we can then carry that in how we help one another, in how we listen to one another and how we forgive one another. “

Home Yoga Practice: Honesty and Quiet Mind

This insertion of silence is a crucial part of yoga practice. Turning off the distractions of phones, computers, music, other people’s voices …. Leaves us alone with the inner distractions and chatter. It helps isolate our attention. It helps create an honest and authentic space of practice. It makes it your own.

I’m not gonna lie. It can also drive us crazy! I notice how after a few times through I sequence I can hear my inner voice say, “cool, now you know what would make this better? Let’s play some Beyonce to the sequence next!”

Set an intention, but be open for course corrections

Intention does not replace surrender to truth. Intention should direct us toward it. Intention also isn’t the destination. When the drive becomes the objective we get consumed in constant doing that goes nowhere.

Gratitude for all the firsts and growth in 2020

I know I haven’t spoken with you all in quite a while. Quite frankly I’ve been running hard, then running in place, then sometimes hardly running at all. Since mid-March it feels like we experienced a tectonic shift. The last class at the studio was a Sunday, Chakra Yoga Flow. I had put up posters about hand washing, face masks and apologies for the bleach smell.
But after that life has been a blur.
Yep, we shifted some classes to livestreaming. Nope, haven’t had any classes at the studio since. Yep, we still have the studio space, but I don’t know for how long.
What we’ve been up to since then have offered growth, letting go and new vision.

Home Yoga Practice: Reflection and Pause

This week’s practice is focused on taking a pause and reflecting. Often in our day-to-day we shuffle through activities and actions like we are swiping right on our phones. Swish, next. Swipe, next. Life has become an assembly line procession of doing and getting and building and acquiring and …  it’s incessant, never ending, never
