“We are going to the moon, that is not very far. Man has so much farther to go within himself.”

Starting in September, I’ll be spending my weekends in Maryland, studying for a M.Sc in Yoga Therapy.
Hope, like every virture , is a choice that becomes a practice that becomes spiritual muscle memory. It’s a renewable resource for moving through life as it is, not as we wish it to be.
–Krista Tippet, Becoming Wise
Over the past year I’ve been teaching chair yoga for the Philly School District, through a grant for the early childhood education Headstart Program. It has taken me into the communities of Southwest Philly to North Philly. The classes are sweet, as a teacher often challenging, some days, like today, no one shows. This work is some of the most rewarding work I’ve done. I believe in the possibilities of greatness, and that even a little bit of this practice can shelter you from great sorrow.
Lately I have been asking myself: what would it be like to let go of the need to be somebody and instead open up to simply being?
As these new sparks of change make their way through my synapses, I am humbled to be leading Moon Glow Flow: A Moon Salutations and Yin Yoga workshop. This is a practice of being with the big questions without actually having to ask them, and instead, simply feeling, breathing, and yes, being.
Please glow with me:

As I wrap up another Brand New Beginner’s Series (Level 2), I am reminded of the importance of the beginner’s mind: to stay curious and to always be learning.
The next Level 1 Series begins 9/8 and runs until 10/27: Tuesdays from 7:30-9:00 p.m. at Wake Up Yoga Fairmount.
“Yoga = 99% practice, 1% theory
Practice = 99% failure, 1% success
unceasing curiosity wins the day
sustained enthusiasm is a great boon
be happy with the tiniest of gains.”
-David Garrigues, Philadelphia based Ashtanga teacher
