Celestial Embodiment: Eclipse Season Joyride

I have always valued community, but especially so in the last year or so. Whether it’s calling a friend and catching up on their news, meeting friends for drinks or with complete strangers for a political meeting, genuine connection to other humans has saved me so much stress and existential dread. Can you relate? Teaching yoga (or anything, really) is an […]

Beyond the Mat and Cushion

Beyond the mat and cushion. How you do 1 thing is how you do all things. Have you ever heard this old adage (or some similar expression of it?) “How you do one thing is how you do everything” And, if so, have you ever tested this alleged truth out for yourself in your own experience? […]

Summer Book Review #2

Hi there. How’s your Summer? I’m liking mine, though it could use a bit more travel.

One practice I’ve put into place that saves me from […]

Nifty Fifty: A List for a Year of Living

“Most people believe vulnerability is weakness, but really vulnerability is courage. We must ask ourselves…are we really ready to show up and be seen?” — Brene Brown     I turned Nifty Fifty a couple of weeks ago. I kind of like the dorky, middle-aged humor kind of ring of “Nifty Fifty”. I had a great […]

Bloggers: Open the Door, Stay Fluid, Be a Mirror

I’m not a blogging expert, but I’ve been blogging for almost a decade now and I want to share what I’ve learned the hard way, over the long haul, by trial and error.
