When I hear the word “yoga,” the first image that comes to mind is the image of a student in an asana posture.

This is what has been presented to me, very regularly, by the western world.

Originally the practice of yoga was just the philosophy.

The study of the stories.

The practice of improving ourselves not only physically, but mentally, spiritually and emotionally.

I am still a student of these texts.

My hopes are that together, we can read about the ancient stories to begin to better understand the yogic philosophy.

Maybe to eventually find a deeper understanding of ourselves…


Join me every 4th Wednesday evening for an exploration of the Bhagavad Gita.

We’ll study the text bit by bit. So that we can grasp the stories and maybe apply some of what we’ve discovered into our daily lives.

I will provide all the readings prior to each meeting. As well as the yoga sutras.

Please choose one each meeting that resonates with you. Maybe we can chat about it?

For me this goes back to “words they chose versus the things they say.”…

Nana’s Baggage

I’m not one to brag (too often) but I take a lot of pride in my handwriting. For starters, my mother had beautiful handwriting. She was a poet and wrote often – in many many journals. Her script danced off the pages. My grandmother is a very stern woman. She knows what she wants and there isn’t not much room to change that. Her script represented that as well. Very clear,…

Preserve the Practice

An exploration of boundaries within the subtle and physical body through the use of props. As yogis, you may experience one of these two scenarios: 1. “This is my favorite asana, let’s go all the way!” 2. “Please, next pose already.” Sometimes the boundaries that our bodies create or need can begin to give us a static view of our experiences. Our body’s boundaries can limit our experiences but when we…
