Namaste. I've been practicing and teaching Peace, Yoga, and Mindful living for many years. What comes out in class is from decades of going inwards. I love sharing what is rising in my practice and my day to day life of noticing more about this incredible world we live in. Peace -j

opposites

I have seen places here so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes, I've seen places so bleak it bring tears to your eyes. Sometimes we cannot recognize the beauty until we've experiences the dark. It's like that with empathy. To really know empathy, you've got to have suffered. In India, the opposites are extreme, and right in your face. There's a Sutra I was going to quote, but the power just went out and this battery will go along with it very soon, but you get the drift. If we want the rainbow, we've got to ride through the rain. As Yogis, we see our challenges as teachings, as preparation, as the needed opposite. Right now, if it's good or bad for you, don't worry, it will change. try to Find the beauty in it all. Siometimes hard.... but the practice is in the trying.

rich or poor

Words could never do these places justice. after an all-night harrowing drivefrom Amritsar, Haridwar is stunning to sleepless eyes. Against my doctors orders, a wade into the Ganges is refreshing and grounding. I wander the streets trying to buy a bottle of water, alas not a single shop will accept my 1,000 rupee note. I'm so wealthy that I'm actually quite poor and thirsty. That's probably a good metaphor to stop at.

Enough is Enough

Smoothing out, and honoring the transitions between postures tells ourselves at many levels, that in-between is a valid state, a way to be. We don't have to know everything. We don't have to do everything. Flowing into postures can helps us get to where things seem to fit.

Vinyasa Yoga Defined

Some have literally reported that in all the “Vinyasa” classes they had taken previously, the pace was so frantic that they hardly had time to take a breath.

Yoga Retreat

Just back from our annual Fall retreat. Many thanks to those who could join us. Sprit Fire is amazing. Not an austere event by any means! in between focused classes and workshops we feasted on gourmet vegetarian food, Much of it organically grown on site. Yes, there's coffee in the morning, and decadent snacks in between classes. It was a joy to teach, we had a great group.

Yoga Books

Jnanna Yoga is the pursuit of knowledge. However it can be a trap. When we approach our Yoga studies like we approach the rest of our modern lives we can come to 'collect' Yoga knowledge. We stuff ourselves with the facts and figures and leave no room for clear understanding. Our culture is about more. Yoga is about less.

Fruit Fly Mukti

When we chant Om Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu it means May *All* Beings Be Free of Suffering. We vow to do our best. Got fruit flies? Here's the solution. Here's a pic of my nifty fruit fly catch and release system:
