TAKE your Time, There is never enough.

“TAKE your time, there is never enough”. I heard those words at the end of a talk I attended recently. It started me thinking. We use “Take your time” often to remind people to relax, slow down, to not stress but what about another interpretation…to TAKE your time…to own it and make the most of it…

Be like the Element of Water and go with the Flow

I have taken a few weeks off from writing this blog. It was something on the to-do list that just wasn’t getting done so I took it as a sign to step away. I have been sharing my inspiration with my classes but wasn’t finding the focus to sit and write them down. So I…

Connect to your strength below the surface

Life is like the ocean. There are calm days and rocky ones and all types in between. When our “ocean conditions” are rough we can get swept up in the turmoil on the surface or we can make the choice to go deeper. Two quotes together inspired my message last week.  “In quietness and calmness…

Learn what the Breath can Teach

The body can teach us so much. This year of studying anatomy has reinforced that for me more than ever. The physiological process of inhaling and exhaling is actually very enlightening, not just from an anatomical standpoint but from a spiritual one as well. Very simply, when we INHALE our diaphragm moves down, our ribcage…

Last weekend I was reading the children’s book One, by Kathryn Otoshi to my Son. The book tells the story of the color Blue…Blue is shy and the color Red begins to pick on Blue. Blue begins to feel…well blue. The other colors in the book are nice to Blue but will not stand up…

Be Resolute on your mat and in your life

I find myself conflicted on the principle of New Years Resolutions. I believe that the journey of  self exploration and growth is gradual and continual and  when we resolve ourselves to something…it has to come from within our hearts…not because the calendar tells us to. However, I do respect that these times  allow us to ask…

Let your worries be “Up in the Air”

The holiday season finds us all a bit on edge I imagine. I know it finds me that way. So last week, when I was asked my suggestions for staying calm during this time, I took a step back and embraced the frenzy in order to find inspiration. What I realized was that life was…

Nourish yourself so you can Serve Others

I recently read an article written by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple. In this article Tim explains  how he tries to hold himself to the words of Dr. Martin Luther King who said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is “What are you doing for others?” This quote inspired Tim to come forward and share…
