"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice."
~ T.S. Eliot ~
2017...What is there to say but.....sayonara! On many fronts, it was a great year. My friends and family are healthy, I traveled to Peru for the first time, my garden was so very fruitful, and my 14 year old cat MacDuff is thriving! On the other hand, well...I must admit to suffering tremendous political fatigue, and sadness regarding the loss of a very important aspect of our society....compassion. I tried to change the world one yoga class at a time by infusing each moment with love and tenderness. Alas, my efforts did not reach much beyond the confounds of the classroom and the loving hearts of my students.
Hail the Year of the Dog! According to the Chinese Calendar, on February 16, 2018 we begin a new cycle! The following is a quote from an astrologer by the name of Susan Levitt:
"Dog year is a time of fairness and equality. Controversial issues are given their due, revolutions are successful, politics are liberal, and political oppression is opposed. Integrity and honesty are the values that lead to success under Dog's watchful and just influence."
In the spirit of Man's Best Friend, I propose that we start a revolution! Like a dog greeting you at the door with intense enthusiasm even though you have only been gone 5 minutes, a revolution whose sole purpose is to inject joy into every moment and to be so very grateful for love and companionship!
I will start by inviting you to continue to move! Movement is life and your body depends on you! I will also continue to offer yoga retreats (Guatemala, Mexico) and workshops (scoliosis...more info on my website coming soon) where we can gather, laugh, dance, travel, and explore yoga together.
As always, if you have any questions or want to know more about my classes, retreats, or workshops, please email me via my website.
