In an atmosphere of joyful and mindful presence while practicing yoga or meditation, we are able to enhance our health as we align body, breath, heart and mind. We increase our ability to flow with the constantly changing events in our lives. By reducing our restlessness, we find great peace and joy that can heal our hearts. Yoga and meditation will improve sleep, and vitality and we will be more rested and alert, more present and available. We will gain strength and flexibility that delivers balance and equanimity into our relationships and into our work. As we slow down life's hectic pace and learn to rest and to engage at a pace less quickened, with ease our stress is reduced. We can help to lower our own blood pressure and relieve anxiety. By consciously coming home to each breath we return again and again to what is real in each moment. We will remember our natural ability to live joyfully in our vibrant bodies.

Happy Summer to all of you.

We are well into the summer season with so many outdoor activities and travel for many of you. I trust that you are enjoying the season of warmth, and plentiful sunshine.

It has been a long time since I posted any new messages or updates here. Many of you know that last year was quite physically challenging for me, due to a fall. It has taken more than a year to heal. Actually, I feel better and changed from before. I am grateful for my injuries for being such perfect teachers. I gained true empathy for pain and injuries in others, which before this, I could only try to imagine or feel. I learned compassion, the need to rest, to move my body when I did not want to, along with practicing daily loving kindness and patience toward myself. Gratefully, I was able to teach all but one or two of my classes.

This was humbling, to be in front of you as I healed slowly. I gained more ability to laugh at my limitations, and hope that you understand my crazy humor, which helped me to maintain a positive outlook. I felt acceptance from you through it all. My philosophy is to keep moving with life’s rhythms. Yoga, mindfulness, and meditation continues to guide me along my journey. We are encouraged to not take ourselves too seriously, to practice acceptance for all things just as they are, and to patiently witness change or transformation each day. We see through practice, on our path, the interconnection, and interdependence with everything.

Thank you for compassion, acceptance, and love.
