Karaoke anyone? How about some dance steps to go along?

“A B C, It’s easy as
1 2 3, as simple as
Do re mi, A B C, 1 2 3″

Jackson 5 – of course ! jingle keeps going in my head !!

“Baby You & Me !”

“Let me tell you what it’s all about
Reading, writing, arithmatic
Are the branches of the learning tree
But without the roots of love everyday girl
Your education ain’t complete” – ABC by Jackson 5

Seriously – “without the roots of love” in learning, nothing is complete for sure …

Often a reference is made as to the “ABC” of Yoga Therapy … in other words, the foundation of yoga therapeutics. I’m happy to go over them in very very cursory manner as take each of them, we can spend a lifetime on mastering:

A for Asana or Action/Movement

B for Breath


C for … what ?

What do you think? Any guesses?

Will go over them should there be any interest…


Today’s New York Times Headlines …

BREAKING NEWS – and this is not fake news, unfortunately…

The death toll from the coronavirus has now surpassed 400,000 in the United States, less than a year after the country’s first known virus deaths.
Tuesday, January 19, 2021 2:52 PM EST
The pace at which Americans have been dying accelerated through the fall and into the winter, exploding to record levels in January.Tuesday’s harrowing milestone came a day after the United States surpassed 24 million total cases.
And we have this outgoing leadership to thank for this utter failure in controlling the spread or fighting this pandemic in any concerted educational (educating the public by doing what’s preached by the health and science experts – wear a mask, keep a distance … common sense, not poltical – making small sacrifices for the greater good). Even today, I see people walking around without a mask; jogging and cycling without a mask, or standing in line with a mask made from crochet of thick yarn with holes all over – minimal coverage – what’s the point to that kind of mask but to get you the pass to get into a grocery store… putting other shoppers at risk.

I am feeling distressed so … I have to go do my practice. What does that look like?

-Gentle Movements

-Cleansing Breath

-Breathwork (pranayama)

-Vibrational attunement


-Meditation (guided is nice …)


-Pray (or intention setting, affirmations, mantra chants)

If you have a partner or family member, perhaps offering Reiki or some sort of tender touch therapy would be helpful … or … PET a fuzzy friend ! Finally what we cannot do with friends … give and receive bear HUGS !


Tea Time

Instead of zen … trying to get over Corona exhaustion… marveling at someone’s skill in hand making such beautiful delicacies.
