Yoga this Week & USB Interview – March 4, 2018



Greetings dearest yoga students,

Yoga teaches us to enjoy and trust the process; to have the right intention and alignment and let go of the results.  If we can simply learn to trust and have faith in our own capacity for our highest selves to show up, we may find true, uncontrived freedom of expression as well as the ability to be courageous in difficult moments.  What is your vision today, can you hold that in your heart and mind and trust the process?

I had such a wonderful time joining Captain Phil at 90.1 USB Radio Station on Friday night.  If you would like to give a listen to my interview, click on one of the links below.  I come on at about 28 minutes in.  The interview ends with one of my favorite songs by a wonderful local musician, Rory Kelly, it’s called “If You Teach a Bird to Sing”  Hope you enjoy it!

Yoga this Week – January 28, 2018

“Life is a Learning Curve” is the quote my 19 year old snowboarding, drumming, stay-up-all-niter college freshman decided to get tattooed on his inner forearm next to the autism puzzle piece in honor of his older brothers journey navigating life on the spectrum.

Image may contain: one or more people and closeup

These days we have a habit of saying that quote often when we come up against something new, hard, difficult, exciting or confusing. Life IS a learning curve. Do we ever stop learning? Transitions, pain, sorrow, winning, defeat, even success all have a learning curve at their core and what make up a growing life.  After all, wouldn’t the drive just be a tedious ride if all the roads were straight? It really are those curves that drive us forward, empowering and creating empathy, compassion and resilience as we tackle each one.   Like waves on the ocean the learning will keep rolling in. Some of the waves will be easy,  rolling gently and slowly onto the shore and some will crash us right from behind and slam us down on our backs. It’s all a learning, a moving forward, through and back and forth again.   Whenever you hear that inner critic or that debilitating fear rise up” that tells you “you can’t handle this” try and repeat the mantra “Life is a Learning Curve” ; tattoo it on your arm if you need to and remind yourself you are not supposed to have all the answers and that learning is gives your life meaning your your heart a chance soar.

Yoga is beneficial for everybody.  It is a non-competitive way for kids to increase strength and flexibility, encouraging self expression and creativity which boosts self-esteem and confidence.  Yoga practice is known for increasing concentration and attention span by promoting inner calm and relaxation.  Yoga can be practiced by kids of all abilities and fosters a sense of non-judgmental community.   But the most important aspect for kids is that it can be so much fun!!!

Yoga this Week – April 19, 2015

   images (99)

Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it.

To stay with that shakiness – to stay with a broken heart, with a rumbling stomach, with the feeling of hopelessness and wanting to get revenge – that is the path of true awakening.

Sticking with that uncertainty, getting the knack of relaxing in the midst of chaos,

learning not to panic, this is the spiritual path. 

– Pema Chödrön


images (49)

This is the spiritual path, this is Yoga!  Sticking with the pose, the feeling, the uncomfortability of the know, the uncomfortability with the unknown, with the shakiness of feeling weak, of feeling strong of feeling vulnerable

and practicing relaxing in the midst of it all.  Learning to be still and respond with the utmost intelligent action from a place of compassion, wisdom and love:  This is the Spiritual Path – This is Yoga!

True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.

It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost,

but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
Arthur Ashe

soldier in tree

Greetings dear yoga students,

Hoping this email finds you enjoying a peaceful Memorial Day Holiday as we honor those that have fought in service to our country. If we allow service to be at the center of our lives; in our work, families and communities, our lives will have true meaning and our dharma (one’s righteous duty or virtuous path) will surely be fulfilled.


Hanuman – The Monkey God

Hanuman is known as a powerful example of true devotion and service.  He is worshiped as a symbol of physical strength, fierce perseverance and devotion.  In the epic tale of the Ramayana he overcomes ordeals, obstacles and fear enabling him to perform supernatural feats  in order to save his master, Rama’s wife, Sita; all in the honor of service.


Become aware of where or who you are meant to serve in this lifetime, connect to your dharma.  Life is fleeting, our greatest accomplishments are those of the heart  , so put your energy into serving your fellow human being and although it may not be dramatic, rest assured it is true heroism in its purist form

Yoga this Week – March 23, 2014

  “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength, but through persistence”


buddha by river

Hari Om Dearest Yoga Students,

Hoping this message finds you enjoying the first signs of the new season that surely awaits us.   Think about the perseverance and patience that nature is gifted with.  The small bulbs that wait silently underground, the perennials that lay dormant waiting for the cues that it is time to begin their work of opening, pushing, growing up out of the dark earth into the light.  Nature does not give up, it finds a way to regenerate.  The natural world knows what needs to be done and does not question its role in its lifetime.  Experiencing the persistent and reliable cycles of nature  fills me with hope,  joy and faith that we too can rise above our difficult, dormant or hard times and shine in all our glory when the time is right.

It doesn’t just take talent, intellect or luck for great people to do great things;  Most often, it is simply the persistence and perseverance of doing the next right thing, showing up  and suiting up, waiting patiently when we have exhausted our efforts, or getting on the yoga mat in spite of ourselves.    We too must learn the lesson of  persistence as we confront situations in our lives where we are either forced to wait or forced to gather all our faith to keep hanging on day in and day out, dangling on the edge of vulnerability.   We are all capable of greatness in our own unique way.

sunflower om

The Yoga Sutras tell us is it the obstacles that lead us into a deeper understanding of ourselves which in turn allows to become deeply connected to others as well as the divine force that flows in and out of everything.  Directly confronting our difficulties with clarity, compassion and persistence creates freedom.  Freedom in knowing you are never really trapped in any situation.  For today, see if you can change your perspective to any “rocks” that are in your stream.  Stay focused, do the next right thing, however small it may seem, and try and find the lesson, the jewel that is hidden within.  Today, be persistent in your journey towards balance, freedom, peace and serenity.  Flow within the river of your life, patient, strong and free.

Yoga this Week – April 6, 2013

Only as a spiritual warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges. The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge, while an ordinary man takes everything
as a blessing or a curse.                                             – Don Juan
Greetings to all my peaceful warriors who week after week face the ultimate challenge of coming face to face with their bodies, minds and spirits on their yoga mats.  Breathe in the energy of spring and be present to all the love that surrounds you.

“You are seeking joy in far off places, but the spring of joy is in your heart.  The haven of peace is in yourself”

Thank you all for journeying  through the chakra system these past seven weeks with me.  As always, it is an honor and a pleasure to be able to bring these sacred teachings to you.   Our study of the body, mind and spirit with its complex movement of energy never ends.  Through asana, meditation, chanting, and spiritual studies, we learn how to be grounded, creative, powerful, compassionate, expressive and wise so we can connect to spirit and the grace thats available to us in our lives.   I stand in awe at our  body’s capacity for healing and guiding us back to wholeness; to our orginal state of equanimity, love and peace because I both know this to be true and I see it in all of you week after week as you committ to your practice and yourself.

Therapeutic Yoga – Yoga is for Everyone



Therapeutic Yoga – Wednesdays 11  to 1215pm

Yoga is for everyone.  If you can breathe, you can do yoga.  Yoga is a cultivation of inner peace, acceptance and self love.  It is more than the ability to touch your toes or stand on your head.

This class will afford students who may have hesitated to join a typical class the opportunity  to experience the amazing transformative power of yoga in thier lives; body, mind and spirit.


“Therapeutic Yoga” will be a very gentle class, catering to those that have special situations, recuperating from surgery, have limited mobility or simply want to ease into yoga practice in a gentle, safe way.   We will use chairs and props if needed and each pose/movement will be modified so that everyone can experience the deep healing yoga offers  in their own unique way. We will begin each class with gentle breath  work and end with a fifteen minute relaxation posture incorporating some reiki energy healing and essential oils.

rest yoga

This class will run on four week monthly sessions and will be limited to 8 students.  Payment of $55 prior to start of session will cover all four classes.  On a drop in basis, if space allows, the fee will be $16 per class and require prior notice to ensure space is available.   Let me know if you or anyone you know would benefit from this class are interested.
