JANUARY VIEWS – Keep the Connection!

Happy New Year and Blessings to All 2015!! Two great years have gone by quickly and my family anticipates at least another half year here in Peru. I recollect my sentiments regarding wanting this sabbatical for only 1.5 to 2 years, however I am going with the flow. The flow of the family makes this feel right, thus decisions for another...

OCTOBER VIEWS – A Conscious Effort

Sheer determination. It can get us though some interesting times! The extent to which we really want or desire something is the degree to which we can move ourselves through states of discomfort and challenge. Perversely, it is natural to be attracted to a life of comfort. We usually desire to be comfortable with our dwellings, both our place of residence...

JULY VIEWS – Yoga Illusions or Delusions?

It is very interesting to me how there have been two recent releases of yoga documentaries, both of which share a common concern for yoga in the west. Their findings clearly show that for the majority of people, yoga has simply become a series of postures. There is evidently a lack of meditation, breath work, and also depth of morals...

MAY VIEWS – For the Love of Yoga

I was standing very close to the edge of a cliff, ready to jump but assessing where it was safe. Feeling fear, I mustered up the courage and then remember landing with some discomfort. But I made it! Then, before you know it I was standing up there again. This time, with a small group of people explaining how to...

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...
