I am having an empirical experience
teaching a secular yoga class with an ordinary title.
We are opening the body, relaxing,
addressing tinges of pain that arise. Contemplating self, accepting normal polarity
of mind, and recognizing our inner wisdom.
Many people think of yoga as having to be limber,
spiritual, a much better person than I truly am,
and other exclusions. When in truth it is an ongoing process of awareness exactly where we are
through the whole being.
The more ordinary, the more real and powerful
the practice of yoga is helping us to play life
meeting each ongoing hill and valley with creativity.
However "you" are, that is how "your" practice is.
So if you are spiritual, religious, atheist, and every in between that is your gift to the world, your unique expression applied to your practice of yoga.
In acceptance of our own life path and the
expression of others we find more ease,
release of conflict and define what oneness
or interconnection is for our self.
Thanks & Giving Wishes,
Knowledge is gained
through the mind's observance of life.
Wisdom is gained
through the heart's observance of life.
This month I recommend with all my heart:
a treasure chest of journeys, audios, videos, music, and stories to embody an ancient practice perfect for our Now time
creating a bright future.
Practice at your own pace revisiting time
and again for expanding your being.
I am receiving rave reviews of breakthroughs and joy of practice. End of year and holiday season are the best times for delving into your new beginnings and sharing these gifts

gave her final performance last month, October,
after 30 years of stunning gifts to the art world
via the human form expressing.
Dance alone has held purpose for me.
It has been my silent partner all these years,my guardian angel.
We communicate each day and like every relationship
sometimes struggle to understand each other.
Dancing has worked me to the extremes
of exhaustion and exhilaration.
It has given me anxiety and soothed me from it.
It has nursed me through heartache.
Dance has asked me to define my individuality
and ultimately to redefine my own notions of beauty.
It has made me aware of my ego
and the complexities of having one.
Dance has shown me the beauty of humility.
It has helped me develop a capacity for awareness,
to find beauty in so many fleeting moments.
To be a dancer is to work within an art form
that lives and dies in nearly the same instant and,
in this sense, offers powerful lessons in mortality.
