One chance

I like to teach with a nod to current events and happenings.  Last week we lost a poet named Mary Oliver.  And while I do not confess to knowing the breadth and depth of her work, the few poems of hers that I have…

New Year New You

It is January. You did it. You got through December and the holidays with their endless demands and now it is time to focus on yourself. You may have started the year with bold resolutions or meekly tip-toed into the new year without wanting…

It’s a Wonderful Life

Life is funny.  We get mired in the details of things.  We get swept into drama.  We have to work hard to keep things in perspective at times.  And then there are other times when you are forced into perspective–a little variation of Clarence…

Gratitude

Maybe it’s why I like high tide so much.  Walking through Boston or any other harbor, seeing the water level super high just makes me smile. It’s a fullness close to bursting, there is no room for any more–the abundance of it never ceases…

Change

It started with some crazy ideas and one flip.  And mercury being in retrograde was also in play (still is!). We invited some folks to stay with us for the summer.  Yep, the whole summer, and the family felt the squeeze.  Suddenly finding ourselves…

Ahimsa

It feels pretty outrageous to have a space of time ahead of me this summer to craft my offerings for the fall.  I am so grateful to the Tribe–those dedicated and loving individuals who showed up on their mat, week after week, to dive…

Springing Forward

In a yoga practice we often find ourselves in downward facing dog during a sun salutation.  The instructor might say “walk, step, or hop to the top of the mat.”  So what is all that hopping all about?  Well, it is the jumping, or…

You Did It!!

GREAT JOB, EVERYBODY!! The Yoga Tribe well exceeded its goal and raised over $1,300 for the Milton Residents Fund Holiday Gift Program.  Helping our own right here in Milton and making the holidays just a little more merry and bright!! I feel a little…

Lessons From the Warrior

Many of our yoga poses stem from Hindu deities.  The Hindu goddess Shiva avenged someone by creating the warrior Virabhadra.  And so we practice warrior poses (named after the warrior, Virabhadrasana), not to honor acts of violence but to find a way inward, or…

Storms

Coming back to stillness.  That is what it all about. We unrolled our mats.  For many of the people in the room it was the first time they had done so all summer, others had kept their practice up; different for everyone.  Tall seat,…
