“Yoga has a sly, clever way of short circuiting the mental patterns that cause anxiety.”

Baxter Bell

“Yoga heals, nourishes, and challenges us. The practice infiltrates every corner of our lives.”

Valerie Jeremijenko

Yoga Journal featured an article about yoga that was taught in a prison.  The inmates could choose whether or not to practice.  And of those who did, some began their practice with lots of attitude and negativity, as you might imagine.

But what happened, after only sixty minutes of asana, was nothing short of miraculous.  There was an enormous shift in the energy of that room and in every single one of those prisoners.  There was a lightness, an easiness.  A feeling of connectedness and trust.  Not common in a prison.  After ONE HOUR of yoga.

It’s a powerful practice, Super-people.  It transforms lives every single day.  Why not give it a try?  Or, if you’ve been absent from your mat for a while, why not hop on again, and see what happens?

 

What do you have to lose?

 

“The yoga mat is a good place to turn when talk therapy and antidepressants aren’t enough.”

Amy Weintraub

“In face to face communication your nonverbal communication, like facial expressions and body language, reinforce the tone of your message. These nonverbal indicators do not exist with technology based communication, making your message more likely to be misinterpreted.”

Zachary Fenell

“Communication is at the core of every relationship, personal or professional, that you hold in life. A breakdown of communication caused by technology can affect your job, your friendships, your relationship with your significant other, and your family relationships.”

Zachary Fenell

“The more we elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.”

J. B. Priestley

“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

George Bernard Shaw

“Face-to-face communication remains the most powerful human interaction.”

Kathleen Begley

“The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.”

Super-Mom of the Month

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
