Happy fall 2014! I am truly in awe of the light and warmth I have recieved this summer .

It seems that I am surrounded by my own dynamic spirit, unusual happenings and questioning yoga students wondering what the future holds and what it will look like. Will it be familiar or different? Sometimes the change of life and environment, which is a natural evolution, is filled with fear and yet wonderful excitement of what could be. Be brave and let go of the past to be free, or why not search out new ways of living to experience cleansing and revitalization.


I adore and live by this scary quote:

getting over a difficult or new situation is much like crossing the monkey bars. You have to “let go” at some point in order to move forward” – author unknown

When I am in times of trepidation and change, I re-read a poem by Danna Faulds.

Let go of the ways you thought life would unfold
The holding of plans, or dreams or expectation.
Let It all go!
Save your strength to swim with the tide.
The choice to fight what is here before you now
will only result in struggle and a desperate attempt to flee from the energy you long for.
Let go! Let go!
Let it all go and flow with grace that washes through your days
whether you receive it gently or with all your quills raised to defend against invaders.
Take this upon faith: the mind may never find the explanation that it seeks,
but you will move forward nonetheless.
Let go, and let the wave’s crest carry you to unknown shores,
beyond your wildest dreams or destinations.
Let it all go and find the place of rest and peace and certain transformation.

My mantra when I feel defeated or grief stricken

“letting go isn’t about giving up. It’s about accepting that there are things that cannot be” – author unknown

Why not “let go”and journey to of Melaque Mexico to practise yoga, hop on a bike, swim in the warm ocean, lie by a magnificent pool and read your kindle, laugh until your stomach hurts , quiet your mind in the lush Green surroundings hearing the ocean waves or dance like there is no tomorrow.

In closing the infamous quote by luminary Lao Tzu
“When I let go of what I am I become what I might “
