October 27 Restore Series


I have been thinking of my next step on my journey to becoming a yoga therapist and how very right this feels.  It took me a very long time to make this leap towards becoming a yoga therapist.  I always knew that I had therapeutic leanings in my yoga teachings and really didn't know what [...]

March 3 Restore Series


Could it be March already?  I think the calendar is lying as 10 inches of snow surrounds our environs and cuddles the earth in its warm snow blanket.    Our restorative practice this week included many comforting, anchoring poses.  Winter is the season to ground ourselves and return to protection so we can go inward [...]

May 6 Restore Series


Just when I think Spring has arrived, a wave of non-springlike weather arrives,  followed on its heels by a wave of summer/spring weather.  Do I mow, do I not mow, do I mulch, do I not mulch, do I plant those newborn vegetables, etc.?  Such decisions....  Really, it is not so bad and I go [...]
