Raising Your Roof

In class the other day my teacher told us to look up in our warrior pose and not to let the roof interfere with our vision. I thought “wow, what a simple statement that covers it all”. Often times we but up these walls with the belief that we are protecting ourselves. What we don’t realize is that we are actually barricading ourselves in.

Recently I have had many students come to me for advise on numerous topics ranging from should I do a yoga teacher training to did my boyfriend… Continue

Finally I speak. My yoga blog sabbatical is over! After Tucker, my dog passed away in September my writing came to a halt. I withdrew from the world and I filled my yoga teaching calendar to keep me busy. I thought that teaching a lot would help me focus on other people and get myself out of my own head, but when I spoke in class my words were hollow.

Life at home consisted of reading nutrition and healing books, becoming a vegan… Continue

Growing Wise

When I sat down to write this blog I first went to check my e-mail. Seeing someone had responded to me through my blogs I was curious as to what I would find.

Just loosing my other pug, Tucker to cancer I wanted to let Gwen know she was not alone and that I too miss Tucker. We find ourselves on the quiet back roads where the sidewalks are brick, the houses are quaint, and the traffic is light. The crunching of the multicolored leaves under my sneakers acts as a buffer to… Continue

Hard Lessons

I woke this morning with a stabbing pain in my neck. It took me awhile to fully open my eyes since crying myself to sleep left them swollen. I realized the pain was from the corner of the photo album I fell asleep on. Not having been on my yoga mat in a little over a week, today I vowed to return. I willed myself out of bed and placed the album back on the night stand, started the kettle on the stove and opened my laptop to check my mail. I brace myself for the condolences I was about to… Continue
