Unlike a group yoga class, a yoga therapy session is structured to the needs and abilities of a single student by a certified yoga therapist (CYT) who has extensive training using yoga to help … Continue reading

“MA” Yoga

My Yoga is so uniquely my own, just as your Yoga is so fabulously yours! Lately, I have been reflecting on what Yoga means to me. Especially as I feel my body responding to old injuries and traumas and how that’s playing out in my thoughts and emotions. Additionally, how the blessed role of being … Continue reading

Three Part Breath

YES!

In my youth theatre classes we play a game called “Yes, Lets!” It’s a wonderful exercise in acceptance.

Love for one another, however challenging the … Continue reading

Being Peace

As i prepare for my upcoming class on Monday, Cultivating Peace in our Breath, as part of the “12 days of Giving” sponsored by Inhabit, i am reminded of the classical text of Pantajali’s Yoga Sutra where he imparts his teachings on the Klesha’s. A Klesha  can be translated as a painful mind state or affliction of the mind. From … Continue reading
