Thai Massage…for the body, mind & soul

Early in 2005, after doing yoga for over three decades, I decided it was time to get my yoga teacher certification. After some exploring I decided to attend the June IYT (Integrative Yoga Therapy) training in PA. Little did I know at the time just what an impact that yoga training would have on me. […]

Nature Reconnection

Question…How do you connect with the natural world? Growing up I spent as much time outside as I could digging in the dirt, catching snakes, chasing lizards, watching the bees, studying ants, listening to the birds singing and learning their song. At night I would study the stars, learn the constellations and dream of other galaxies…far, far […]

The Skin You’re In

Growing up in the ’50’s and early ’60’s, the only line of defense against the sun’s rays was a hat and clothing, unless you lived in an area that had “winter”. At least that way you were inside or fully clothed for most of the year. As for me, living in Houston Texas, I spent most of […]

The Moon and Stars Up Above

As a child did you love to star-gaze or stare out your bedroom window at the full moon and wonder? I certainly did and still do. Star and moon gazing are actually healthy activities to do regularly, even if for as little as 10-20 minutes. If you have kids or grandchildren, it’s also fun to use a […]

It’s All In Your Face…

Did you know that your face reads like a map? Your face can point the way to a deeper understanding of yourself as well as of every person you meet. And just like a map, this information is available to anyone who can read it. Learning to read a face is a lot like learning a new language, but fortunately its a language […]

Yoga for the Season: Autumn

When I was about 17 yrs. old I decided to start practicing yoga. My thought was that it would enhance my dance studies of ballet, jazz and contemporary which I had begun when I was about 4 or 5yrs. old. Being that it was 1969, yoga was still very new in the USA. B.K.S.  Light on Yoga was published only a […]

Balancing Your Body’s Health

I have found that summer can be a 2 edged sword when it comes to good health, meaning it’s invigorating to get outside and exercise when the weather’s great. Plus the produce is at it’s best mid-summer and into early fall. But at the same time the heat and humidity can make me so sluggish […]

Making Space

What does making space mean to you? Where is space lacking in your life? Space is important to all of us and it comes in different forms: land, hours in the day, square footage, a bigger kitchen, limber muscles, and even a clear mind. We are all looking, often struggling, for more space. Sometimes we even […]
