Yoginis! I want you to know why I am teaching for the online Sex, God, and Yoga conference and why I want you to support it!

This post is specifically for all the women that practice yoga , the humans that identify with the being woman, and all the others that support us. 
As a teacher, I attempt to be androgynous.  Neither male or female, neither masculine or feminine.  In the deepest teachings of yoga, we are not only seeking balance with the masculine and feminine forces, but we are attempting to move beyond.
But most likely, in the here and now, we are attempting the former - To Balance our Masculine (Ha) and (The) Feminine forces, balance the Ha/Tha… hence Hatha Yoga.

The Year I took Personal Process and Playfulness to Heart

Well this has been quite the year and I am so deeply grateful for all your support while I lived through the journey of healing my broken leg.  Fingers crossed, 2016 will be my year for building even more of my strength back.


As I reflect on my year, there was something that kept coming up for me in my personal life and so I would like to call this year -  "The Year I took Personal Process and Playfulness to Heart".

What I Realized In The Desert

What I Realized In The Desert

As you may have heard, I went back to Burning Man…. and I did not break my leg!  What you also heard was it was a hard year because it was so windy, dusty, and freezing.   I attend Burning Man first and foremost for the desert, the art, my friends, and the fire rituals that occur throughout Black Rock City.  But this year…. It really was ALL ABOUT THE DUST.  I was one of the Early Arrivals to the event in order to help build my camp and help other camps out. By day 2, the weather was so perfect we were able to build almost our entire camp which included putting up our massive Moroccan style tent for our daily life coach workshops.  By the next morning, up to 50 mph winds had blown through knocking over our Moroccan tent and many other camps’ tents, domes, and even an RV!   We waited out the wind and dust storm for a whole day.  Eventually,  the winds slowed down but never stopped.  We rebuilt the tent with an even stronger method of tying it down…. but it soon became apparent that the winds were here to stay for the week of Burning Man.

Healing More Than My Leg

Healing More Than My Leg

Dearest Yogis, Friends,and Lovers,

An unbelievable thing happened to me that woke me up to the truth about healing.  I broke my leg at Burning Man - in the middle of the desert, in a place I had been working hard to get back to for the past 365 days, and I was 3 hours from the nearest hospital.  Breaking my leg meant that I had to leave Burning Man and there was potential to not be able to go back.  Needless to say, I broke my leg at the worst possible time and I was ANGRY.

My Dad's Retirement Sermon

So far this has been a remarkable year in my family.  I became an aunt, my mother turned 70, and my father retired from over 30 years as a minister in the Protestant church!  I am in awe and feeling deeply honored to be able to witness all of this growth in my immediate family!  For now, we will bask in our achievements and watch my niece grow!

Lightening Up

My Favorite quote of the month!  Jean and I are always talking about Lightening UP in Teacher Trainings and Aldous Huxley says it perfectly!

"It's dark because you're trying to hard, Dark because you want it to be light.... Lightly, child, lightly. You've got to learn to do everything lightly. Think lightly, act lightly, feel lightly. Yes, feel lightly, even though you're feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them...

Happy New Year! I love you!

I finished this year off spending time with my ROOTS.  I traveled home and stomped around NYC and Poughkeepsie with old friends, new friends, and my whole family.  This year has been a pivotal year for me personally but also for just about everyone I know!  Maybe I am simply at that age where I see bigger picture stuff but I also see how much hard work is being done to assure our futures feel FULL through connection and interdependence.
