Personal practice: Permission to FEEL

Freedom and feeling are imperfect and messy and juicy and intense and subtle. No matter whether you want to feel goofy or balancing on one limb and still, step into it with a playful, open, willing nature.

Joy and pain: a practice

I am at a loss with your losses.
All I have is my presence and willingness to feel the loss with you without getting lost.

Let it show and let go

Not letting it show is not letting it go. It’s just hiding it. It didn’t go anywhere except into an abscess of my body-mind-spirit where it’s causing infection.

Truth of feeling

Yoga frees us from a life of “feeling bypass” to one of immersion and growth and balance.

Yoga for your eyes and vision

My eyes are tired.
They are tired of screens and electronic lighting.
They are tired of seeing the harshness of the world; trying to see things your way; not seeing what I need to. The eyes – the windows to the outside world and the portals to our inner vision and inner spirit guides – need just as much attention as hips and core and legs.

Take our survey, help us improve

Greetings all. I hope and pray you are all well. We are considering our future in the virtual world and the real-life, brick-and-mortar world. Both afford meaningful ways to deliver mind-body healing practices (yoga, tai chi, meditation) with accessibility and inclusivity in mind (our mission).

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.
