Special “Black Friday” class

Please join me from 2-4 pm on Friday, 11/25, for “Brighten Black Friday.” at InsideOut Body Therapies, Durham, NC.

This two-hour class will combine a nice warming flow–to burn off any feasting one might have done the day before–with some deep work to find respite from the tension that holidays sometimes bring.

Appropriate for anyone with some yoga experience.

Letting go of the voice over

In the last 10 days, I’ve had three Certified teachers show up to my classes–only one of whom was expected. Each time I’ve had an immediate moment of tension and dismay, wondering if I’m going to be able to teach “well enough”. And yet everything has turned out fine.

Recognizing the narrative that arises as nothing more than narrative is essential to moving beyond it. Instead, we need to focus on what is.

This is the story of my life

Ocean Size

We have our limited bodies, our limited minds, the limits we experience on peace, joy and connection.

What if we could set aside those constraints? What if we could feel limitless? What if we could be as deep and wide as the ocean?

The thing that is most beautiful in the eyes of others is love. When we love what we do, our every action can be beautiful.

Where’s Dharma

“Better to live your own dharma badly than someone else’s perfectly.” But how do you tell what your dharma is?

We come back to the union of feeling and intellect. We recognize and acknowledge our feelings, then we examine them, and over time we discern where they lead us.
