So often we hear the comeback story after the comeback has been made. The hard times are glossed over and...BAM...straight to the success portion we go (cue up Robin Leach voice over and close-ups of symbols of wealth, status, and... Continue reading

It's been quite an emotional week given what's been happening in the world. Not having a TV allows me a bit of a shield in terms of being bombarded with news. I've always felt there's a difference between being informed... Continue reading

It often amuses me how the things that are most good for us are often the very things we have great difficulty doing (and sometimes avoid doing altogether). Meditation often falls into that category. We love the benefits of meditation,... Continue reading

Over the years my practice has taken on a more fluid quality with a focus on flexibility. There's more flow than static postures. I still build strength, yes, but I like for my yoga practice to have an emphasis on... Continue reading

It seems like a lot of folks I've come into contact with lately have a case of "the disgusts." Politics, natural disasters, racial conflicts, crimes, terrorism, and just about everything else you can find in the world and the news... Continue reading

It's been almost 2 months since my last post, and I must say that I was touched by the response. Thank you so much for your feedback, your comments, your attention. I've been sitting with your thoughts and mine for... Continue reading

I recently heard someone speak about the Greek term, Kenosis, which is translated as "self emptying of one's own will and becoming entirely receptive to God's divine will." This person movingly spoke about erasing herself, becoming nothing. At first that... Continue reading

Back in 2006 when I did my yoga therapy (perhaps I should put that in quotes, now that everyone and their uncle seems to have a say about what being a yoga therapist truly entails) training, I wondered who (at... Continue reading

I didn't realize that it would take me this long to compose my very first post of 2016. Then again, that is the joy of life -- it's filled with surprises. Happy belated 2016! For me, the past two months... Continue reading

It's been a holiday season filled with delights, surprises, and lots of love (and a miracle or two thrown in for good measure). Sitting on the cusp of the new year I'm filled with gratitude for the past year and... Continue reading

It's been a while since my last post. I've been taking lots of time out this holiday season to go within. Yes, during the holidays, our attention is often drawn outwards. We're bombarded with messages about buying, consuming, socializing, and... Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! My inbox is filled to the brim with "Black Friday" sale emails, the Tofurky is defrosting, my heart is bursting with more joy than usual -- yep, it's that time of year. It's also the time of... Continue reading

I've got some serious leaf clearing to do around the house. I've traded my flip flops for boots. The mistletoe has popped on the tree in my backyard. There's a crispness in the air. I've purchased Christmas-themed toys for my... Continue reading

Often, we turn to teachers for something -- guidance, wisdom, a deeper Triangle Pose, insight, sometimes even a good swift kick in the yoga pants. Sometimes teachers teach us one thing and then relate it to the bigger picture, opening... Continue reading

A friend of mine was lamenting how "happy happy joy joy" all of her friends' Facebook posts are all of the time. No, she wasn't jealous of her friends or rooting for them to be unhappy. She simply said that... Continue reading

Writing this post feels like stepping back onto my yoga mat after a lengthy break. It starts out feeling a bit odd but after some breathing and movement, it starts feeling more familiar, more natural. Before long the body and... Continue reading

Sometimes I like to switch up standard yoga practices -- like Sun Salutations -- to add a little spice to my practice, change things up for my body, and/or focus on opening a certain part of my body. Lately I've... Continue reading

For those of you who love irony, the subject of this post came from my not knowing what the heck to write about. It all came down to one simple phrase: I don't know. It's a phrase that I'm very... Continue reading

Thank you, D! I'm so glad that you chose to read this post and that it resonated. I certainly have my ways of retreating. I just keep coming back to my commitment to connection. I'm glad that we've connected here.

Whoa...something is cooking this week. It's seeming like everyone I encounter is having a stressful, emotional, or all-around intense week (or two). It's actually been an odd week for me, too. I had a few incredible bursts of clarity and... Continue reading

In one of those "isn't it ironic?" moments, I heard a story as a kid from my neighbor who had to see a specialist for a health issue. The doctor sat at his desk across from my neighbor and told... Continue reading
