Thoughts and Musings

 
Bringing Yoga Philosophy to Everyday Life

Hello lovelies!  Here's Collection #2 of our Managing Roadblocks to Well-being.  The over-arching theme for this set is Tuning Into Ourselves.

During the moments I was working on this piece, I listened to classical music - The Four Seasons, Brandenburg Concertos, Cannon in D... you get the idea.  My point is, for this work, classical music helped me tune into myself.

I invite you to cultivate your own rituals to help you tune into you - nothing complicated, just things you enjoy!

...and I hope you enjoy reading this collection!

You probably won’t know this, but my website has gone through three overhauls; so has my business name and logo.  Not to mention the designs of my posters, banners and images that I use on my promotion materials and social media.  And even now, when I really love and am proud of my current design set, I still find myself reviewing and refining everything.

The same is true for my class sequences.  I use the next set in the cycle as my home-practice to enable me to refine the poses, modifications and mini sequences that make up the whole in preparation for my classes...

My rights and lefts are even more muddled up than usual, going upside-down is unpleasant and turning my head to scan a roomful of people is making my head swim.

I needed to rest, but physically I was still fine and strong (ok, apart from everything I said above) but I had a new vinyasa flow and I was excited to teach it! Needless to say, I still did all my classes since the previous Sunday (end of March). But I made mistakes; multiple times in practi...

Like all yoga teachers, I’ve been asked numerous times what type of yoga I teach. A few months ago, one of my yoga tribe asked me specifically what “dosha vinyasa yoga” means and how is it different from all the other types of yoga out there.  The simple answer is: balance and being in that quiet space between. My “style” helps the modern yogi prevent and manage injuries, whether that's yoga related or not, by helping establish a practice that is accessible, comprehensive and balanced through my curated Dosha Vinyasa Yoga©.

The Universe will always give us opportunities to practice our beliefs and learn some lessons our spirit needs to evolve. The following article is about one such opportunity for me to practice Satya or truth and honesty in a situation where I would have done anything to soften the blow of pain and suffering of a most special person to me – my son.

My son was heartbroken. In August 2013, his pet hermit crab died. One evening, he and his father inspected the shell and though the eyes had sunken, they thought they saw a bit of movement. There was hope, little though it was...
