Grow with your Flow

    A friend posted this amazing photo of a tree in “Dancers Pose” and underneath was the caption “Grow with the Flow”. To her it was an ode to Spring which is popping up all around us but that mantra became more to me this past week as I realized the different ways to interpret…

Little Moments Build a Joyful Journey

    Vacations are like miniature versions of our life journey…there is a beginning, middle and an end…there are some big, wonderful moments along the way and many many small moments. The more PRESENT we are on our journey, the more we get to connect to the joy from not just the big moments, but…

Breathe in your So and out your Hum

It’s been a couple of weeks since I have last written. I have been struggling with not only the time and focus but also the desire to write my thoughts.  I write when I have something to say and I have had that less in these recent weeks. However, it feels as if the desire…

Be Resolute on your mat and in your life

Be Grateful

Last week, I was riding the commuter train from my home to NYC. I was reading emails and my mind began to wander to what my inspiration for the week was going to be. It hadn’t come to me yet and I was teaching the next three days. Just as I began to go over…

Grant Yourself the Gratitude

last week I had a moment where I realized that I had taken something for GRANTED that I literally could NOT imagine living without. It wasn’t intentional but it happened just the same. It is human nature to not always appreciate things until they are gone or changed in some way so I asked my…

Find Gratitude for Sameness and Find Your Inspiration

I just got back from a trip to beautiful St. Martin. It has become our yearly little getaway, my husband and I…an opportunity to reconnect, relax and be together. It is a strange experience to go back to the same place several times in a row. I felt it very strongly this time as we…
