Letting Go

I used to think that I was a little obsessed with making lists of things I needed to do. I still make lists, but now I am beginning to think that they are actually a way of letting things go. When I write something down it no longer spins around in my head. It no […]

Ending is Beginning

I walked by this patch of earth the other day, a living, thriving, corner encased by roads and stones. I love the simplicity of this image; these are just flowers coming up to meet the relative warmth of early spring. On the other hand, the teaching of these flowers is profound. They show us the […]

Companions

Yoga can be a rather solitary practice, both as a student and as a teacher. We all practice for different reasons and in different ways, and for more or less time throughout our lives. Even when we practice in a group environment, it is a very personal experience. I was reminded today that even when […]

The View from My Window

Every morning that I step onto my yoga mat I have the opportunity to look out this window. The window itself is always the same, and I am standing in nearly the exact same place as yesterday.

I feel lucky to live in a place where spring is moist and full of blossoms, summer is hot and sunny, and fall is crisp and clear. Winter here […]

Taking Care

Why is taking care of ourselves often so much more difficult than taking care of our children, our house plants, our pets, or our clients? Why do we so often put ourselves at the bottom of the list of people, things, and tasks that require our care and attention? How can we practice offering and […]

Safe Places

We all need places where we can hide away and restore ourselves to our natural equilibrium when events become overwhelming. The cat loves this little hut as a quiet and dark place to hide away from us humans and the commotion of our lives. Simple shapes like standing, sitting, lying down, or kneeling with the […]
