So it seems I shouldn’t wear white after Victoria Day. And yesterday I learnt I should look in the mirror more often. After I got home from teaching I went to put my hair up and when I finally did look into the mirror saw I had spilled my morning coffee all over my white shirt!
I overheard some students talking after class yesterday. One of them said, “This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. Now i can get through another week”
I’m so grateful for those who show up each week, with mats in hand, to practice yoga with me. They sometimes come stressed and worried, other times joy-filled; depending on the week. And they take the hour to breath, to relax, to work hard.
One would think after having a cold for 85 days (of what some called the 100 day cold) this past winter my immune system would be super strong. Then Spring arrived. So did the allergies.
I haven’t had trouble with allergies for years. I went through many AET (allergy elimination technique) sessions which reverses sensitivities. I can’t explain how it works but I do know it did. I was allergic to outside
May this week find you discovering inner peace.

I seriously have to wonder how well Sophie, my White Russian, knows how to tell time. Every night she tucks me into bed. Then minutes before the alarm goes off every morning she wakes me up. Sometimes it’s in a nice way, other times she pounces on my belly to announce her arrival.
Between the Pepsi fiscal, United Airlines, Sean Spicer, Syria, CBS’s Survivor it’s been quite a week. And I’m probably missing a few things. I think one thing we’re learning in this ‘new age’ is the power of social media.
The movement’s are important for change. We can have a voice as a collective and it seems “be the change we wish to see”.
Now if we could only do as much with our personal relationships. We can’t force change in interpersonal relationships even if we’d like to.
April brings four planets in retrograde. Those of you who love astrology and study the planets probably are aware of this. For everyone else when a planet is in retrograde it is said to be moving backwards.
Currently, or very soon anyhow,
Sadly one of the students who has attended my Yoga classes for the Cancer journey lost her battle. It’s so saddening. This woman gave it a good fight and her gentle energies will definitely be missed by myself and the other participants.
Another reminder of just how precious life is.
This week I saw a short clip on Tao
Have you ever had one of those days where everything feels like it’s going wrong? I had one of those on Monday.. well, the morning anyhow. My bedside alarm wasn’t set for daylight saving time which meant I woke up one hour late. And I received a text message which I thought was real, but turned out was a dream. I spent that extra hour of sleep trying to figure out how to respond without rudeness or ego.
I had a teacher once that moved his yoga mat to a different location for every class. It always kept the students on their toes and made them explore their attachments to their yoga space.
I find it interesting how much we are creatures of habit. How we move into our classes and place our mats in the exact same spot each week. And the looks on students faces when someone is in ‘their spot’ as if it’s going to change their experience. I have even experienced some students tell others, “You can’t go there that’s so-and-so’s place”.
