Happy Lunar New Year !

Peking Duck ? Yes but … same table graces Vegetarian Pizza? (so good, this crust, this cheese, these herbs …it’s from America’s best 🙂 The Japanese in me who used to spend hours Osechi foods making for January first Oshogatsu may roll her eyes but it’s another venue, another time … let’s just be happy with all the international flavor profiles 🙂 Yes – America is a melting pot – there’s Chinese and there’s Italian and there’s … United Nations of tummies to rub with these soul foods – to celebrate this Year of the Tiger. Gratitude… for this luck. With more flexibility, resilience, justice and wisdom, may this new year be a better one for all of us.

IAYT Code of Ethics & Professional Reponsibilities (4/12/2016 rev 9/1/20)

As a part of a requirement to renew my IAYT certification (every 3 years!) I am now about to take a quiz on Code of Ethics and Scope of Practice. While I review them I am reminded so much why I wanted to pursue this area of yoga in the first place…

It’s because practice of yoga for me has been so medicinal, the ability to uncover its healing power I so wanted to share and spread. Joy is something to be spread – like gooey melted melded jam spread on warm buttered toast to share share share and not to simply keep 🙂 That joy of transformation is greater when shared as with any great gift. Even in baby steps even in atomic minuscule way, yoga serves us in so many helpful ways.

Gratitude for this opportunity to serve in ways no matter so small and invisible, reverence so felt.
