the light in me honors the light in you, in that light we are one #namaste

May I have the courage today
To live the life that I would love,
To postpone my dream no longer
But do at last what I came here for
And waste my heart on fear no more.

May we always keep our feet on Mother Earth, our eyes and minds above the treetops, our spirit with the Great Universal Spirit.

And may we always walk with…a sense of humility, kindness, wonder, and respect for all living things as we follow the sacred trail of those who have come before us and those yet to come.

What if…….

What if our religion was each other

If our practice was our life

If prayer, our words

What if the temple was the earth

If forests were our church

If holy water – the rivers, lakes, and oceans

What if meditation was our relationships

If the Teacher was life

If wisdom was self-knowledge

If love was the center of our being

The Seahawks believe their kinder, gentler philosophy is the future of football….

Everyone in the facility, from coaches and players to personal assistants and valets, is expected to follow Carroll’s mantras regarding positivity of thought, words and actions. “Do your job better than it has ever been done before,” he tells them.

We need have no fear of change…

There is an unseen life that dreams us; it knows our true direction and destiny. We can trust ourselves more than we realize, and we need have no fear of change.

Yoga for Kids

I’m so thankful for the opportunity to teach kid’s yoga. We’ve really established a groove and the kids/students are wonderful. We are having so much fun. I’m emphasizing the benefits of yoga and how they can take it with them outside of class, better posture, breathing techniques that can help with test taking etc….
Yesterday we spent the end of the class designing a “Best of” class, everything they want to do next week. The students even came up with some names for the class…..
-Miss Joan’s best yoga class
-Peaceful Yoga
-Kids of the Yogi
-Fun and great yoga class
-Awesome awesome awesome awesome yoga class
…you get the idea

Restorative Yoga

I had the privilege of teaching restorative yoga to cancer patients and survivors. A reflection I shared…. What is Restorative Yoga? – the art of being relaxed, gives your body the opportunity to do one thing at a time. Think about that for a moment, how often do we just engage in one task at a time? Tonight we will honor our body by allowing it to focus on one task, restore.
