Honoring your geography

Honoring your geography

Remember, it doesn’t matter how deep into a posture you go. What does matter is who you are when you get there.                                                                                                            ~Max Strom The...

Wisdom Through Alignment

“We often forget that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say we have lost our connection to nature, we have lost our connection to ourselves.”                                                                               ...

A lesson in presence

A lesson in presence

Almost 6 months ago I got serious about learning to dance. Not just dance. To learn a partner dance called West Coast Swing. It is a social dance that at first feels like an awkward high school dance. A DJ plays music and someone asks someone else to dance. The music is popular songs you would...

The goal or the path

The goal or the path

In the last few months, I have become a brand new beginner in two different things. Both are things I have wanted to do and yet been afraid to do for a variety of reasons. The story went like this, “Alice, you are now a responsible adult and if you haven’t done these things by now….” My...

The Magic of Beginnings

Are you inspired?

A Happy New Year for 2019 to you my friends. You probably have never met or even heard of Phyllis Sues. She is a 95-year old woman with rotator cuff problems in one shoulder, a ruptured bicep, meniscus problems in one knee and neuropathy in her feet. Sounds really hard right? But before you...

Eagle pose as a solitaire game of twister

Eagle pose as a solitaire game of twister

Eagle pose...ah! It's not one of the most popular poses or a pose that looks strong or graceful. It's a twisted kind of pose that was at the top of my least favorite list of poses for many years. Why would I want to twist myself up in, as one great article about eagle pose referred to it as, "a...

A Happy Holiday Spine

A Happy Holiday Spine

As the weather gets cooler and the daylight holds us for less and less time each day, I feel the yearning to be still, to curl up. I often wish I was a bear and could hibernate at this time of year. It's ironic that the way of the natural world and it's time of rest contrasts the busy times of...
