The most amazing thing about life is love.  In all of its forms, shapes, intensities and colors.  The symbol of love is the heart shape and contained within this is compassion, gratitude, generosity and forgiveness. 

Compassion:  acting in genuine concern for others

Gratitude: acknowledging blessings, showing appreciation and kindness

Generosity: giving on a grand scale in a quiet way

Forgiveness: freeing oneself of dissatisfactions and resentments and shifting to overcome

These are tall orders, but in my experience, definitely able to bring about.  Having the intention to be compassionate, to be grateful, to be generous and to be forgiving, is a first step.  The energy required to see the light and to make subtle changes just

We start our yoga class with our palms together at our heart center in Anjali Mudra, a prayer-like gesture. It is also known as Namaste, a common yoga greeting meaning, “I acknowledge that the light in my heart and the light in your heart are the same.”

We are grateful to have this simple practice called yoga that calls on all human beings everywhere to be happy, healthy and peaceful.  There are no expectations, no judgements, no perfection, we are just trying to support one another and feel

“Sankalpa” is a Sanskrit word meaning an intention formed by the heart and mind. A solemn vow, determination or will. It is your connection to your deepest heart and soul longings. Aligning with your truth, your heartfelt desires. So very powerful and strong, yet we tend to ignore them and float through life doing whatever we have to do to survive, overlooking the subtle signs trying to guide us on our journey.

“San” means truth and “kalpa” means vow or intention. In order to set your

Snow days are a blessing for some, and yet for others a curse, when you have to trek to work or worst yet, if you don’t have heat. Delays, cancellations, etc. are extremely frustrating and difficult to deal with in a blizzard. Having a house full of young children can also be tough. Putting things in perspective is everything. Making the best of a bad situation is what we do.  We are lucky enough to have a warm, comfortable home to bunker down in. Not everyone is as comfortable today. I am so

When stuff happens, it is very hard to focus on anything positive. Yet, we always, always have positive things in our lives. We get caught up in whatever buttons are pressed or whatever seems to be wrong or whoever seems so self-righteous. And we have to deal with it.  We lose sight of what is miraculous, what is truly enjoyable, what is perfect. Maybe it is human nature. I don’t know. What I do know is through more awareness on my part, I am able to stop and focus on something positive to help

Today I guided a beautiful group in a two-hour restorative yoga practice. Each shows up with a different reason for being there and all leave with a sense of calm. It is permission to do nothing for two hours. To feel the breath, relax, quiet the mind — think of nothing — and just be in different forms, stimulating different healing energies inherent in our bodies. Settling in to restorative poses brings about a deep sense of comfort and relaxation. An antidote to stress. One can say it is a

The illusive path, this sacred path every soul walks, is paved upon the choices we make. Robert Frost wrote about it in the famous poem, “The Road Not Taken.” The last stanza reads,

“I shall be telling this with a sigh 

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —

I took the one less traveled by,
