Sweet whispers and open doors

Sweet whispers and open doors

I’m a good starter. I get excited about a new subject or hobby, and I am all in. I get the books, take the lessons, get fully immersed. As time passes and I see and feel all that my investment adds to my life, the balancing process begins. How much of THIS do I want in my life? With knitting,...

Honoring your geography

Honoring your geography

Remember, it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go. What does matter is who you are when you get there.                                                                                                            ~Max Strom The...

Wisdom Through Alignment

Wisdom Through Alignment

“We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.”                                                                               ...

The Magic of Beginnings

Eagle pose as a solitaire game of twister

Eagle pose as a solitaire game of twister

Eagle pose...ah! It's not one of the most popular poses or a pose that looks strong or graceful. It's a twisted kind of pose that was at the top of my least favorite list of poses for many years. Why would I want to twist myself up in, as one great article about eagle pose referred to it as, "a...

A Happy Holiday Spine

A Happy Holiday Spine

As the weather gets cooler and the daylight holds us for less and less time each day, I feel the yearning to be still, to curl up. I often wish I was a bear and could hibernate at this time of year. It's ironic that the way of the natural world and it's time of rest contrasts the busy times of...

my favorite chair

my favorite chair

You may have seen the headline "sitting is the new smoking" or the one that claims "your chair is killing you." When I first heard these almost six years ago my inner cynic teenager reaction was almost immediate. Hmm...so we now have cancer-causing jobs because most of us sit A LOT at work and we...

A dog at your desk

A dog at your desk

I subscribe to the theory that the origins of downward dog evolved from the ancient yogis. They, like us, spent a lot of time sitting. They, like us, most likely had wandering minds and their share of distractions. They, like us, eventually gave in to boredom or biology and had to get...
