Lest we forget…

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra is a sort of guide book on how to live like a yogi, kind of a map for a meaningful and purposeful life.  In a very basic outline, this yogic philosophy manual has eight components or limbs we are to follow.  The first of these limbs is … Read more

Monkey see, monkey do…         

So, leadership is a hot topic these days.  Everywhere you look in bookstores, classrooms, even on blogs it’s being talked about.  How to be a leader, how to encourage leadership, what type of leader do you want to be.  It makes me wonder, is there a set Webster definition of … Read more

Salute That Sun!

There is this theory out there in the yoga world, or maybe in the whole world, that the more you practice gratitude the more content you will be in your own life; and that gratitude is a muscle that if flexed on a regular basis, grows.  I’ve been thinking about … Read more

Well, I’m Slim Shady…

Have you ever lost your mojo?  Your self-confidence?  Your aplomb?  It happened to me a few weeks ago. I was sort of drifting, more emotional than usual (and ask around, that’s pretty emotional), just feeling unsure.  This may sound silly to some, but honestly I kind of lost my pluck. … Read more

Rock on Hanuman

I always appreciate those of you who become really active in the summer months.  Evening walks, running marathons, enjoying the outdoors.  I love the outdoors very much, but in the heat of the summer I often become more of a cocktails on the dock kind of girl than a run … Read more

Yes, those kegels, and yes a revolution.  An uncomfortable topic to be sure, but an important one for everyone, yes everyone.  So any Dudes that were going to stop reading here, hang in there.  This is for you too. Honestly, this is uncomfortable … Read more

Ahead by a century…

Shortly after my last blog post, someone I respect and admire asked me to explain the concept of enlightenment.  I enthusiastically agreed, after all, I have had faith forever and practiced and taught yoga for years. Oh, how my ego takes me down every time.  I’ve mentioned before, I’m a … Read more

Big Toes and Kaleidoscopes…

I have been struggling with my feet lately, and honestly, this is a little hard on my ego.  I am a yogini, and for that matter a Pisces, we are supposed to have good strong feet.  Also, I really like pretty shoes and these days if I wear them for … Read more

Wearing Nothing but a Smile….

It really is wonderful how in the last decade, yoga has become much more mainstream.  It hasn’t been that long since the only yoga classes you could find were in the back of a random health food store or the basement of the local church.  Now, there are beautiful yoga … Read more
