The Gift of Experience

The Gift of Experience

I grew up in a small town and went to a small school. When our Spanish and French classes decided to take trips to their related countries, there weren’t enough people for separate trips so they created a single trip to Spain and France.  It was a stretch for my parents to make that trip...

Clearing and seeding

I like knowing. I like the feeling of certainty and being prepared. It feels comfortable and safe for me. I can anticipate what I might say or do and plan. I feel in control. However, when I "get" all of these then things begin to feel overly predictable and, frankly, boring. I also like chance...

From Blackened Toast to Mindful Cooking

From Blackened Toast to Mindful Cooking

Blackened Toast I tried to quickly scrape the burnt sugar topping off before the kids came downstairs. It was a task I knew well.

Tiny pinecones, Where’s Waldo and training myself to see

The Second Mistake

The Second Mistake

Yoga Stories I love it when people tell me yoga stories. It's like sharing a cup of tea or a good dessert. One of my favorite stories was shared by an active insurance broker who attended one of our Yoga@Work classes at her client's office. She and her husband practice yoga but he had been...

To Sit Or Not To Sit? How do you feel about sitting? It seems like a simple question, though there are lots of kinds of sitting and lots of mixed messages about sitting these days. On one hand, you’ll hear that we sit too much, that our chairs are killing us and other fear-induced headlines....
