I had the pleasure of teaching an early morning flow at Bird Rock Yoga this morning and wanted to share the playlist. Happy February, friends! xo
Hi friends! I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season. I had a request to share my yoga playlist from class this morning, so here it is! Hope these tunes help move you with intention, breath and joy this winter. xoxo
The past few months have been a bit of a whirlwind: moving across the country, starting new jobs, connecting with old friends and meeting new ones too. All good things, but at times a bit stressful. Sound familiar? As we continue to settle into our life in California, I’ve been practicing more restorative yoga to help ease tension and relax. Here’s the recipe…light a few candles, play a couple of these mellow tunes, do a few easy stretches (child’s pose, legs up the wall, gentle reclining twist, savasana) and breathe. Sending you peaceful, loving thoughts!
I was able to teach an autumn vinyasa flow class at the Feeding America national conference this morning and had a few requests to share my playlist. Here it is, enjoy!
God, Goddess, Spirit that be,
I pray this night watch over me.
Hold me in the arms of angels,
Safely from all harm and danger.
Bless all those I deeply love,
And tend their needs from up above.
Thanks to you for the gift of life,
Courage and patience to journey through strife.
My gratitude from deep within,
Please open my heart with your love, Amen.
*I wrote this prayer in 2007 and came across it in one of my old journals yesterday. It always surprises me when my writing has more profound, personal meaning, years later. The photo is a retablo of Our Lady of Guadalupe by New Mexico artist Lynn Garlick.
Today, our hearts grieve and try to make sense out of senseless attacks. This week, consider engaging in a few random acts of kindness. It won’t fix the pain and suffering, but together, we can help spread more light and love to a world that is hurting and in need. Check out this list of ideas to get you started.
Here’s my playlist from the yoga class I taught today at Yogaview. Do you have favorite yoga or workout tunes? Please share, I love finding new music!
On another note, I am so grateful to be a part of the yoga community. My students teach me so much and I am honored to share my love of yoga!
A consuming fire
Relentless and tangled
A tentative rain
Of keyboard clicks
Fire and rain argue
Until sparks turn to steam
And soften into grace
To find inspiration
And write from source
Feels easy, free and pure
Baring my soul
To whom I am opening
Showing petals and thorns
Is the artist’s way, I suppose
I have a lot of love for the creative process and its mysterious ability to discover me. Lately, new projects, ideas and stories keep finding their way into my dreams. It’s simultaneously inspiring and overwhelming. Slowly but surely, I am honoring these gems with the time and attention they deserve.
These little collages are from one of the new art collections I’m working on: LOVE. Stay tuned, more artsy stuff is on its way!
Hey yoga peeps, happy Easter and happy spring. Here’s my Easter vinyasa playlist. Hope you enjoy!
