Greetings for 2018

Dear Yogis

Happy New Year.

I sat down several times in the last few weeks to write you all a letter of Holiday Cheer and New Year Wisdom.  Alas alack, after several attempts, I found that really most of what I had wanted to share with you, had already been said by someone else, and usually way more eloquently than I could ever articulate. I gave it up for a bit, but today I realized, I did want to send you all a note.

So, I will keep it simple.

I am grateful to all of you: my students; teachers; friends and fellow yogis for all the support you have given me this past year.  and I want to let you know that I am here for you. If ever I can be of service to you in any way, please let me know.

You may have noticed, that my teaching schedule has been reduced.  I am only teaching a couple of public classes a week (Mid-Day Bliss at Village Green Yoga).  Instead,  I am teaching more classes at senior living communities and volunteering with a few local service organizations.    If you are interested in scheduling private or small group classes or workshops, I do still have room in my schedule for that.  Give me a call or drop me an email to set something up.

2017  was a tough year.  I think we can all agree on that.  But I also believe it was the catalyst many of us needed to step up and commit to doing the work we were each meant to do.  For me, this has led to enrolling in classes in physiology, kinesthesiology, meditation and philosophy.  And, while I miss time on the mat with my students, I know that now is the time to return to my studies, delving deeper into my meditation practice and giving back to my community.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday, which was this week, I wish you the very best for 2018.  May this be the year, you truly step into your dreams, following your heart, listening to the voice of wisdom and compassion that lives within you, and may you find the work that inspires and nourishes you and all those around you.  In the yogic sense, this is following your Dharma.

Eat well, move safely, sleep soundly and breathe with awareness.

May this be a year of blessing and joy.

Shalom & Namaste

Great News at Kharma Bella Yoga

Great News at Kharma Bella Yoga

Yoga Wall: Come check out the new addition to the Kharma Bella Studio.  We have installed a yoga wall.  Book a private session and experience the amazing benefits of working with a rope and wall system for enhancing your asanas and healing your body. Just drop me an email, or give me a call, and we’ll get you set up for your introduction to the wonders of the yoga wall.

Speaking of Privates:  I highly recommend them.  They are great for tuning up your practice, exploring poses deeper, or working at a more therapeutic level, that can only be achieved when working individually with your teacher.  Privates are also great as an introduction to yoga.  If you know of someone who has been hankering to try yoga, but is worried about going to a class of Gumby bodies and feeling left out, this is a great and safe way to discover yoga.

Radio:  I have signed on to co-host a radio show on Mondays at 1:00pm on 1150AM  KKNW.  (I know, this is big news. It took a real leap of faith for me.)  I am joining the wonderful Ajayan Borys of Effortless Mind Mediation on Mind Matters Radio.  Together we will be exploring the intersections of yoga and meditation and all things glorious about your mind, spirit and body.  Tune in next Monday to hear about the first yama, Ahimsa (non-violence) as I discuss the many (obvious and not so obvious ways) this weaves through our lives and our practice.

Music:  Here is a treat: The Toure-Raichel Collective: Wonderful acoustic music. Check out this link, and maybe even attend their show April 28th at the Triple Door.  Thank my son Ben for the link.

Classes continue to fill and expand. Be sure to arrive with enough time to get signed in and settled in, so you can fully enjoy your wonderful self in class.

Happy Spring,
Shalom & Namaste,
