December 11 Restore

2018-12-14T10:24:31+00:00

Christmas Joy D857CCE1-A171-49D1-8AE9-3EAA73F3E594 (click this link for colorful Christmas lights, goofiness and music). We are back in business.  I've dropped the ball in updating my website programs and suffered the dreaded look of a website gone mad.  Technology used to be my forfeit but I am not sure where I fell behind.  I marvel at the [...]

November 13 Restore

2018-11-15T20:08:50+00:00

The first winter storm has arrived and thankfully, I can hunker down at home during the worst of it.  I've adopted my winter wardrobe consisting of slippers, PJ bottoms, no bra (of course), layers of long sleeve shirts and sweaters, and a scarf. I keep up this glamorous appearance until all vestiges of winter are [...]

November 6 Restore

2018-11-10T08:33:08+00:00

I am gobbling up books like tasty morsels lately.  My latest find is Jillian Pransky's book, Deep Listening.  In this book, she provides techniques for going inward toward our inner landscape, remain there is peace and then move this peacefulness into our outer landscape.  All delivered in her Jillian voice.  What do I mean by [...]

October 16 Restore

2018-10-21T10:03:01+00:00

Restorative yoga facilitates the four conditions for relaxation: relaxing the muscles with support, quieting the responses caused by stress, quieting the mind, and finding a relaxed, smooth breath. Unlike sleep, where your mind and body are preoccupied with dreaming and tensing muscles, this style of yoga provides an opportunity to achieve all four of these [...]

September 4 Restore – Coming Home

2018-09-07T09:57:39+00:00

What a wonderful feeling to return to the practice of restorative. It felt like coming home to the teachings of this practice and a homecoming itself as each of the students returned. What does it really mean to you to come home? In the yogic perspective, it may be that bliss state of Samadhi. The [...]

5-15-18 Coming Back

2018-05-20T20:48:39+00:00

I have been practicing a meditation to release negative energies that have been part of this lifetime as well as other lifetimes.  The first few days of the meditation this week reminded me of the first few days of a detox (see a much earlier blog).  I was easily triggered, short of patience, forgetful, lost, [...]

Italy Bound 4-3-18

2018-04-05T19:23:32+00:00

I'm immersing myself in language comprehension, speed style.  With 3 days to go until my yoga retreat to Gubbio, Italy, I've got to work hard. But even if I don't know what I am saying or comprehend what is being said to me, I really like my attempts at the Italian accent. I think it [...]

Breath Practices for Easing Pain

2018-03-31T10:44:14+00:00

I found this simple but effective method for using your breath to ease both chronic and acute pain. Just 4 things to remember.  Our habitual way of dealing with pain may be to tense up even further, or to absolutely ignore the sensations.  Our brain and our body are really intelligent and give us all [...]
