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 Fall or Autumn,

Fall is such a colorful and bountiful season of changes. I am thrilled to see it especially in the leaves of trees and garden harvests. I enjoy very much the morning and evening crispness as the temperature drops and everything feels more fresh and moist. Let’s hope that we get some rain again soon. It is such a pleasant time of year to be outdoors hiking, or as many of you do, riding your horses. This is also the yin seasons of Fall and Winter, that naturally draw us toward our interior experiences and development. Yin and restorative yoga coupled with meditation will help you stay centered, balanced, and renew your awakening toward your truest self. Come to your mat or your cushion frequently as the days shorten and the earth takes rest with you. Practice in mine or other’s classes as you continue to develop a home practice connecting to what your body, mind, heart and spirit needs.

I am very happy to offer a Yin & Restorative Yoga Workshop plus the Four Foundations of Mindfulness Sunday October 23 ~ 12 - 2:30 pm at the Grass Valley Yoga studio located near the entrance to Alta Sierra. Whitney’s studio offers a peaceful and welcoming atmosphere that you will certainly love being in. I believe that will allow you to go deeper into understanding, and the utilization of these practices. Experience the four foundations of mindfulness in your yoga, meditation, and in your precious lives. See more details on my workshop page where you will find the link where you can sign up at

Thank you for compassion, acceptance, and love.
