A wobbly bridge

A wobbly bridge

Last week, I took a big step onto a wobbly bridge. It would seem like the wobbly part is a problem, but with bridges, even the most majestic bridges flex as needed. Suspension bridges are wobbly and get a bad rap. They are the bridges in the movies that often break when the heroine is midway...

Cat Cow to the Rescue

Cat Cow to the Rescue

Today I am not feeling well. My daughter came down with a cold last week and she kindly shared it with me. I don't get sick that often but when I do I surrender. Yesterday I slept almost the entire day. Today my body aches, probably from the cold but also from lying in bed for so many hours. The...

The sense of sound

Sounds are surrounding you at every moment. As we explored the sense of sound this week on our Wholebeing Journey in Costa Rica our group was in awe of the howler monkeys in particular. The Guinness Book of World Records has credited these beings as the loudest of land animals. Their low pitched...

Do not try this at work: Happy Baby

Do not try this at work: Happy Baby

Yes, there I am at 4 months, a very happy baby! Usually I write about poses you can do at the office however, there is no really good way to stay true to the intent of happy baby pose and make it something that would feel comfortable practicing at work. This week I'm making a radical...

Are your feet awake?

Are your feet awake?

I’ve been exploring so many different poses lately, really exploring them. Not within the flow of a yoga practice but spending time with each pose. This week it is wide legged forward fold, prasarita padottanasana. Forward folding postures seem to be all about your hamstring stretching, or not...

Exploring Plank

How did you feel when you saw the subject of this message? Did you say Ahhhh, I LOVE plank pose? If you asked 100 people what is their favorite yoga pose plank would be the favorite of only a few. I may not be able to convince you that it should be number one on your list but I want to share a few...
