Do What You Can

If you practice with me, you know I yammer on about offering the moment what it needs. Right action. I think this Teddy Roosevelt quote sums that up. No where is that truer than in our yoga community right now. Each day since last week I receive emails with a live or video offering ofContinue reading “Do What You Can”

Weekend Yoga Retreat – June 14-16

Wednesdays are my day off and outside of the mundane errands one does on their “weekend”, I’ve tried to incorporate something fun. Of late, it has been a lot of museum hopping. Brooklyn Museum, Guggenheim, The Met, The Frick and so on viewing the various shows and exhibits currently on display. Yesterday, with definite SpringContinue reading “Weekend Yoga Retreat – June 14-16”

Weekend Yoga Retreat – November 9-11

We had an early taste of Autumn over the past week in New York City. A coolness in the air. Jackets came out. While the Labor Day weekend is an artificial transition into Autumn, we felt the shift.

We notice as we clear theContinue reading “March Happenings and Beyond”

Help Yourself!

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson The political discourse these days has me feeling a little glum. While I don’t believe the noise created byContinue reading “Help Yourself!”

September (and Beyond) Happenings!

Even as I border on an upcoming rather significant birthday (translation: I’m OLD!), September still feels like a time of new beginnings, to learn something new, and provides additional space for reflection. As we move towards the end of the easy livin’ of Summer, we might feel rejuvenated and energized to take on new challenges.Continue reading “September (and Beyond) Happenings!”
