In Gratitude

By Michal Retter

A yoga teacher’s students are often her inspiration and source of pride. As Thanksgiving approaches, my heart is filled with gratitude towards all of you. Here, I would like to introduce two of my longest practicing students (Pam and Brenda) who have graciously shared some personal experiences related to life, yoga and the Thanksgiving motif.

Presence

By Mackenzie Rae

Have you’ve ever found yourself getting really worked up about something and then once it happens, it’s not nearly as bad as you thought it would be?

I had an experience like this recently that I’ve been sitting with and receiving the lessons this has come to teach me.

And I write about it because I believe that it’s something we can all relate to as humans.

So the story goes…

Fall Practices

By Amy Robinson

FALL is the forbidden four letter “F” word in our household because I am a summer lover. I feel the most alive, the most me. I love the bright, long days filled with adventure, swims, peaches, and the spontaneous lack of schedule.

New Year, New Reflections

By Amy Robinson

“Good Riddance 2020” and “I can’t wait for 2020 to be over” are messages I’ve heard often (including in my own head)! I think what we are really saying is, “I can’t wait for this pandemic to be over.” Even though the calendar has turned, we are still in the midst of a pandemic with the light at the end of a long tunnel. We must continue to persevere, trust our resilience and reach out for help when needed and to help when possible.

Illuminate Your Breath

By Elizabeth Ruff

I love the solstices. Summer, winter. The two bookends. The beginning and the end. Which one came first, I wonder??

Regardless of the one in the beginning, we are here now on the cusp of winter solstice. For years I have led various workshops around winter solstice, wanting to share its significance with others in different ways. 

This year, we are not going to be together, so I wanted to give you some ideas for a little home retreat. An offering to the space between us, that is the space inhabited by all, the we-space of union, of yoga. The collective. And the anchor we all share, regardless of the ability of your body, the color of your skin, your geographical location, the extra money (or lack of) in your bank account is our breath.

Staying Grounded During Times of Chaos

By Gentri Watson

Wow, what a whirlwind of a year it’s been already, and there are undoubtedly intense times ahead. You might find yourself feeling burned out and engaging in old familiar unhealthy habits. Maybe you’re riddled with anxiety and stress or just “blah.”  Now is a time for gentleness combined with tenacity, for incredible patience combined with perseverance, for great self-acceptance and radical self honesty. You might be thinking sarcastically, “Is that all?”

Coming back to myself with nature

By Katie Cassidy

The stress is building and it feels like I’m in water up to my chin.  ‘I’m a good swimmer’ I tell myself, ‘I can handle this’. There are moments when it feels manageable. There are even hours or days where everything feels ok. And then…one more thing causes the water to rise just a few more inches and I find myself under water, overwhelmed and panicking.  I’m unable to catch my breath.  I’m unable to show up for myself or anyone else.  It sounds silly now, but it took me until my 40s to name this sensation…anxiety.
