Just Make a List of What You Would Like to Order from The Universe

Today was day 6 of the fabulous 10 day yoga immersion 2011 at Joy Yoga Center here in Houston.  I could not ask for a lovelier group of women with whom to share this amazing experience. Our phenomenal teacher and fearless leader Joy Winkler has such a fantastic and enlightening approach to yoga. It is not simply teaching poses here people! it is SO SO much more. More than I had ever thought or dreamed would have been included in my yoga teacher training. THANK YOU JOY!
Yesterday was our marathon day where we spent 13 hours at the yoga studio. It was a fabulously enlightening day which ended with me performing my very first hands-on adjustments in a class. I feel my strength and confidence growing more and more every day. Such a great and fantastic thing to see such transformation in so many and in so many ways.

If any of you have not seen "The Secret", please do so... NOW! It is so amazing when you are enlightened to the fact that our reality is what we make of it. What we envision and believe happens. We manifest our realities and as soon as people wake up to this age-old reality the world will be such a better place. I love being surrounded by positive like-minded people... it is quite uplifting to be surrounded with such great energy and grace.

Himachal Pradesh, India: The Land of the Gods

Chandratal, Lake of the Moon I don't have the adequate words to describe the beauty and wonders of the Indian Himalayas and the Himachal Pradesh in a meaningful or comprehensible way. The diverse and remarkable landscape, scenery, culture, food, people and experience are beyond measure. What at first glimpse seems like complete disarray reveals itself as organized chaos - much more organized than a westerner might expect. I must admit that I, initially, had slight reservations about the trip in monsoon season; there is a great likelihood of landslides and floods on the perilous roads after all. I like to think that we were blessed with the beautiful unimpeded journey that we had. Blessed not only because we held positive thoughts, but also because it was due, dammit. After the loss of three close and precious souls in only four months, it was time for good things. Jamaica's Campsite at Chandratal with Rishi & Raju After reading countless travel experiences

I'm a Mom!

I had always known that when the time came I would want a natural birth without an epidural. So last October when I found out that I was pregnant I knew I had to do my research to find the right place to give birth. With the business of birth being so huge, it is really our duty to be our own advocates and research to understand the implications of the socially accepted birth practices in this country (USA). For me, a natural and unmedicated birth was of utmost importance but birthing centers are not covered by my insurance so I chose to deliver at a hospital in Houston that has a midwifery division and I am so happy with my choice! Life is a bit different these days.  I was just thinking about how my brain has been on sabbatical for what seems like an eternity - throughout the entirety of my first pregnancy and now the past couple of months. I am 4 months post-partum and am just now beginning to re-access the majority of my vocabulary. What better time than now to write out my birth

I completed my second yoga teacher training program and backpacked across the Himalayas of Northern India where I learned more about m
