What a perfect way to spend a sunny Sunday morning – yoga in the park.  The enthusiastic and entertaining Laura Camp from Monkey Yoga Shala led a fun class at Willard Park in Berkeley.  Live drummers helped us move to the beat.  Laura even had us doing partner poses.  That’s her in the handstand above.  […]

August 16, 2008

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at the Creative Action Center with my friend and fellow Lady Launcher Laura Parker.  Given the busy week I had, it was really nice to just hang out, create and connect. Last month when I took Kimberly Wilson’s Yoga and Creativity workshop, Kimberly highlighted the yamas and niyamas.  We studied […]

Luxury, Gratitude and Synchronicity

July 24, 2008

On Thursday, the question of the day at Cafe Gratitude was, “What is luxurious about your life?” My answer… the fact that I have the freedom and flexibility to have a nice lunch in the middle of the day with a friend I hadn’t seen in ages. I had been so looking forward to seeing […]

Back to Bandha Basics

January 14, 2008

Now that I’m easing into my yoga practice again, I’m going back to basics. I can hear Larry asking, “Where are your hands and feet?” Reminding me to pay attention to my foundation on and off the mat. Where am I placing my intention and how consciously am I holding myself up? I’m reconnecting with […]

Awards, Abundance and Asanas

January 13, 2008

(Apparently an adorer of alliteration according to the post title! Heehee!) I’m a little behind in blogland and there’s so much to catch up on! First off, awards…. I’m so incredibly honored to receive a “You Make My Day” award from three of my very favorite bloggers: Jamie, Leah and Marilyn. You guys inspire me […]

When a=b, b=c, a=c Goes Bad!

January 8, 2008

One powerful skill in coaching is making distinctions. Sometimes we’ve unconsciously collapsed multiple definitions or ideas together into one big fat limiting belief. “Since I got passed over for a promotion, I must not be worthy.” “I didn’t do my meditation today, that means I’m lazy and undisciplined.” Oh and my favorite, given the title […]

The Year it all Came Together

December 19, 2007

In December, I like to have my coaching clients reflect on what they’ve accomplished throughout the year. It’s such a gift to set aside some time during the frenetic holiday season to actually honor everything you’ve manifested in the last 12 months. After spending a few hours last Saturday journaling about my own learnings, discoveries, […]
