This past Sunday, my business partner of Ocean Bliss Yoga and I started offering live Zoom classes to our very special community. We co-taught the first class because we wanted to greet our community together. On the first day, we had 58 beautiful beings. It felt uplifting to see all the familiar faces that come to our studio and support us. When we closed the studio on Monday, March 16, we knew it was for the safety of the community. It broke our hearts but we prayed our students would be able to take the yoga off the mat, into their living spaces and remain calm in this time of crisis.

We also chose not to rush into offering online classes because we felt strongly that the universe was asking us to slow down, pause and take care of our

Listened to a guided meditation the other day and one line stood out: “You are a lighthouse.” Love the image. We can all be the ones to provide guidance and warnings to others, just like the lighthouse serves to warn and guide ships. It seems timely to think of this image as we need to pass along information on cleanliness, keeping ourselves and others safe, not denying what is really going on.

We are blessed to be here in sickness or health. It is more difficult to feel gratitude when you are ill or have a loss in your life of a loved one. These are trying times and they test our faith. It is the caregivers that are our angels on earth. You have my sincere gratitude for being compassionate and

Spring is in the air, more light, more sun with the hour ahead this weekend.  Time to think about “spring cleaning.”  When I was growing up, it was a thing in the house.  Windows washed, thorough cleaning of blinds, drapes cleaned/changed to lighter versions, carpets refreshed, and on and on.  It marked a turning point from winter to spring/summer in our family, home and my favorite seasons were almost here.

 The dusty car juddered to a stop after a five-hour drive from the capital city of Accra, Ghana, grinding over potholed roads which kicked up the reddish dust from the dry soil.
