If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain, or help one
fainting robin unto his nest again I shall not live in vain.
~ Emily Dickinson
The message in the above quote is powerful and simple; Emerge from your own suffering and be of service in any small way and your life will have meaning and your heart will be full. I take this opportunity to thank all of you for allowing me to be a small part of all your lives. Your presence in class, on the computer or phone has had amazing effects on me and my life. My personal path is being supported, clarified and illuminated everytime I lead a class! Each time one of you expresses their gratitude for this humble space I have created, I am filled with the knowledge that I am being used for something bigger than I can even realize; even if in very small ways. I cannot express enough how blessed I feel to have the opportunity to use this ancient system of yoga to “ease one life the aching or cool one pain” even if it is just the short time we spend together in class, the effects I see within me and you all are amazing.
Never doubt what any small act of kindness can accomplish. Live from you heart, experience the light the shines inside and reflect the brightness on to another giving them the opportunity to connect with the light they too have within. Most of all, I sincerely hope you enjoy this journey from the darkness into light and receive within your gifts of the holidays, more love than your heart can hold!

Winter Solstice Celebration, Wednesday Evening 7 – 9pm
Winter Solstice marks the shortest day of the year and the first day of Winter. As we journey deeper into the darkness the promise of light abounds. Our winter holidays are festivals of light. We celebrate the light within and around us. We honor the warm light of those that are close to us as we come together as one:; one voice, one breath, one mindful purpose of giving and receiving peace, love and joy.
The Gaiyatrye Mantra

“Let us meditate on the light of the sun which shines on the earth, in the sky and in space. May this divine light shine also within us to inspire our intellects to make the right decisions at the right time.”
