One of my favourite things about yoga is that you get such a clear and immediate picture of what focus and practice can bring. When I first arrived to Pavones for the advanced teacher training with Downward Dog, I could barely lift my "floating" leg in Eka Pada Galavasana. Every morning in mysore practice with Ron & Marla, I'd give it a go. Some days I'd be "better". Some days I'd be "worse". All the same, everyday I gave it a try and everyday I congratulated myself on my efforts while taking in whatever lessons needed to make my next attempt that much more informed.
Well timed, this video clip of Ira Glass on Creative Process has been making its social media rounds again. Reminding us that if you want to excel in whatever it is you're trying to excel in, you need time, patience and practice.
Time. Patience. Practice.
I'd like to add : Guidance. Set the ego aside, ask for and accept the wealth of knowledge that others can provide.
When you set out to do something, do it without fear, without ego - but with patience and love.
God, I love learning and all of whom I've been fortunate to learn from. Om Shanti Shanti, yo.
The good people of WovnBranch offered me a carte blanche opportunity to host an event with them at one of their retailers, The Detox Market. Immediately I knew I wanted to host a Wandering Yoga class and have all the proceeds go to relief efforts in the Philippines.
So that's what's happening!
Come yoga for good vibes and join me for this special class.
Alexander Junior of DATU will be playing traditional Filipino gongs to set a collective heartbeat for the class.
All attendees will receive 15% off any purchases at the Detox Market on Dec 12 either before or after yoga.
Let's move our bodies and spread our good energy.
OM SHANTI SHANTI YO.

July on my roof has been awesome, so we're going to keep it going through to the end of summer. ( Sigh, is the end really in sight?! )
Tuesdays we'll go slow and focus on alignment.
Thursdays we'll go faster and sweat.
PWYC ( fingers crossed for $10 )
Holler in advance to confirm attendance ( So I know how many post-yoga oranges to slice up! )
Looking forward to sharing yoga with you!
