Is Your Bikini Ready For YOU?

I have taught yoga to girls of all shapes and sizes, from ages 13 to 65. From women who have given birth to 4 children, to 13-year-old girls with pure white skin, some hippy, some busty, even cover girls that are on the magazines challenging you to get bikini-ready. And guess what? We were ALL… Continue Reading →

Transformation

Most of us would love to change from being a caterpillar into being a butterfly. The journey from the dense creepy little bug (but let’s not forget the awesome book by Eric Carle: The Very Hungry Caterpillar…maybe not so creepy up close in technicolor.) The journey from one to the next requires a total metamorphosis…. Continue Reading →

Act As If

 If you were a yoga pose, what pose would you be? Would you be a Reverse Warrior, solidly leaning away from conflict? Or would you be an Eagle Pose, finding balance as you gaze with soft focus at the big picture of the entanglement of opposites that creates tension and steadiness down below? How about… Continue Reading →

Envision Your Goals

Any goal I have ever reached began with me visualizing it. It began in my mind before it became tangible. Spring is the time for new beginnings, and contains a potency for planting seeds for the entire year. The eyes need a visual image to connect us subliminally to our goals and desires. That is… Continue Reading →

Speak Your Mind

When I was about 15 years old, I befriended a couple who would screen a documentary on MLK each year around the time of his birthday. The power of one man speaking up was the tipping point for an entire people. To think the first black US president is completing his second term, says that… Continue Reading →

Change Your Perspective

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” The art of self-observation shows us that nothing outside of ourselves needs to change in order for us to feel differently. A simple shift of my perception generates a different response and my course changes.01 My way of looking at things is… Continue Reading →

Letting Go Of Perfection

“If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing badly.” – Gilbert Chesterton I love this quote, because it completely challenges the perfectionist in me. Perfectionism breeds procrastination. If I continually wait until I am prepared enough, I may be waiting a long time. Perfectionism is elusive, and a moving target. Since I am… Continue Reading →

Alchemy: Turn Lead Into Gold

The process of alchemy, or simply put: changing something toxic into something valuable, has been a part of my personal journey. In homeopathic medicine, the cause of the disease can also be the antidote. I view my upbringing in this light. My conflicted relationship to my father was peppered with all sorts of practice in this area…. Continue Reading →

Be (In Love With) Yourself!

Fall in love with yourself! My journey to finding my individuality started at a very early age. I have never been in sync with the way society says we are supposed to do things. I went to a mobile school for experiential learning. And yoga in the 70’s… it just wasn’t cool back then. It… Continue Reading →

Reinvent Yourself!

“We have to be continually jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.” – Kurt Vonnegut “It is in the not-knowing that I am freed of all my limitations.” – Me I had the opportunity to be in a conversation with a wise woman this evening. She asked me what I did and I… Continue Reading →

The Power Stance: Sitting

Sometimes I sit. I sit through the storm and I shake and I wonder if the winds will blow me away. I wonder if I can endure the violence, the rage, the anger. I forget what it was like to feel safe and be at peace, to live in contentment and know in my heart… Continue Reading →

How To Think Positively!

Think positively. We are constantly confronted with this phrase, and know intuitively that it’s correct, yet easier said than done, right? My personal default state is concerned and worried. Perhaps it’s genetics, history, or experience, but I am the half empty type by nature. It takes extreme faith and contrary action to look at my… Continue Reading →
