JANUARY VIEWS 2014 – UP!

It is either the altitude here in Arequipa or the writing of this eNewsletter that is bringing a feeling of dizziness. Most likely, it’s the latter. 2014 will be an interesting year with excitement and adventure for those who open themselves UP! to the wonders of life and the world. We meet those people who have a zest for life and...

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2013 – Lessons in Detachment

Big or small, lessons in detachment arise often. Like ‘miracles’ which some of us believe appear frequently, 'lessons' are visible if we are open to see them. My husband was scheduled for a business trip to Lima for a week and he wanted my daughter Tika and I to go with him. This was very last minute and within 24 hours, we...

SUMMER VIEWS 2013 – Motivation for Machu Picchu

I wish for folks to know that I sincerely understand the challenge of motivation, especially with respect to exercise. Along with the decision to put the studio aside for a bit, I needed to know I would continue to take care of my health, for my sake. Not because I needed to teach a class or be an example for everyone else, but...

APRIL VIEWS 2013 – Peru, A Special Place

  "Here come those so-called human beings, those creatures that like to chase us and litter in our fields." I'm guessing this was the line of thinking the vicunas had, as they watched my daughter and I slowly approach them. On the road between Arequipa and Colca Canyon my family spotted a magical herd of vicunas (llama like mammals of the...

DECEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Our Space Farewell

  Thank you everyone for the smiles, hugs and well wishes over the last month and especially yesterday at Our Studio Farewell Celebration. The morning and evening were shared by beautiful souls who could be in attendance, while feeling the presence of those who were there only in spirit. The slideshow from the evening will be posted on Facebook later this week, so please connect with us there by...

NOVEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Shavasana

  Shavasana, sometimes seen and heard as savasana, is that important time needed for the body to rest and renew. After practice, it allows the energy to settle and absorb, instilling benefits from all the movement. This “corpse pose” is sometimes known as the death of the practice, but positively speaking, it’s a time to embrace stillness and the rebirth of...

OCTOBER VIEWS 2012 – Samsara

  The term Samsara has a similar meaning within a few of the world religions. With the common theme depicting a "repetitive cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth” it seemed fitting to label our most recent saleSamsara. Knowing there is a natural continuous flow of creation, evolution and destruction in life, it makes our situation at Body Harmony a little...

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Removing Obstacles

  With the onset of shorter days and cooler nights, here on the West Coast we feel that hint of change. Energetically, it’s wise to prepare the body and its system for the fall and winter ahead. Practices such as cleansing the diet, moving the body through Hatha and Yin yoga, and partaking in regular chanting sessions are all stellar for...

SUMMER VIEWS 2012 – Collective Consciousness & The Power of Intention

  Yoga business is an oxymoron. Like hot yoga, the two words beside one another seem to clash. Weaving a yogic and compassionate “support the community” attitude, with the logical and non-emotional “do what is best for the business” mentality, doesn’t always leave a yoga business person feeling at ease. Trusting that there can be a balance between the two, it has been nearly 10...

JUNE VIEWS 2012 – A Guide to Gurus

  If talk of a guru seems a little serious, I would say “Au contraire, it’s a matter of perception.” A guru may be simply defined as "someone who removes your goo" or "a person who guides you to the light." The Sanskrit term itself literally means heavy (implying a heaviness of knowledge), but metaphorically speaking, a guru helps to "find...
