We are all Diamonds

Feb 03, 2011 • (0) Comments

There is a word in Sanskrit, avidya, that means ignorance or incorrect comprehension. The opposite is vidya, or correct understanding. In the yogic philosophy this is deeper than day to day misunderstanding or unawareness of facts and rather referring to the things that prevent of from knowing our Truth. However, I try to keep the […]

I am grateful for anxiety…

Jan 27, 2011 • (2) Comments

If you had told me a year ago that I would even consider begin grateful for anxiety I would never have believed it. I do believe in being grateful for difficult and challenging moments, but often I express gratitude for those moments with my head rather than feel it deeply in my heart. I’m human […]

It looks so easy!

Jan 24, 2011 • (0) Comments

As an instructor I hear that phrase a lot…”You make it look so easy!” I often reply with a smile, “Well, I’ve done it two or three times before.” There actually are factors involved that make any complicated task look easy when being performed by an expert. Such tasks might include cooking, playing a musical […]

Fierce Conversations

The alternate title to this entry was “Facebook makes me sad”. More on why later, first some thoughts on fierce conversations. There is a book titled Fierce Conversations and I admit that I have not read the book, but I love the title and I love the idea. The word fierce has several definitions, some […]

Bikinis in January

About 2 weeks ago I went to Target. It was certainly a winter day, just a few days into January is only about 2 weeks into the winter season. It was about 50 degrees, gray, overcast and had been raining. Exactly what one would expect for California winter weather. Upon entering Target the first and […]

I had an amazing amount of time off at the end of 2010. With the exception of one class, I had three full weeks away from teaching and two weeks of doing light office work in the mornings and then spent long rainy afternoon reading books. I managed to get through four books in two […]

Sarkazein

Dec 22, 2010 • (0) Comments

I recently discovered the etymology of the word sarcasm. It comes from the Greek work sarkazein, which literally means “to strip off the flesh” but also means “to speak bitterly, sneer”. Ouch. When using sarcasm, we are literally wounding another person. They say sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never harm […]

My Latest A-Ha Moment

Dec 01, 2010 • (4) Comments

My latest a-ha moment occurred in late October. I haven’t written about it yet because I’m having a hard time knowing where to start and how much “back story” to add in for it to make sense with out writing a book. (side note: someone recently told me they would read a book if I […]

It’s true. Yoga does make everything better. The more you practice, the longer the duration in weeks, months and years, the more you’ll discover for yourself how transformational yoga truly is. Today I thought I’d share with you some of the ways in which yoga has made my life better. I’m sure I’ll forget some, […]

Seeds, Growth, & Gratitude

Nov 15, 2010 • (1) Comments

The Universe is constantly planting seeds inside of us. A few things can happen when a seed gets planted in your soul. For me when this happens, I have a very strong feeling of “I have to do that”. What happens next is up to me, I have choices about what I can do with […]

Ancora Imparo

Nov 04, 2010 • (3) Comments

Ancora imparo…I am still learning. I love quotes and passages, they help me articulate things I am feeling that I can’t quite put into words. I have this one, ancora imparo, near my desk. It was on my vision board, but I am currently re-designing my vision board, so I keep it near by. The […]

Is it really yoga?

Nov 03, 2010 • (0) Comments

I recently received an email with an excellent question about Yoga Flirt and I attempted to answer the questions put forth by the author. Unfortunately, I was not provided with a valid return email address. I knew that eventually someone would ask this very question and am happy to educate others about Yoga Flirt. Each […]
