Love and Light

What an amazingly beautiful world we all live in.... I could not be more grateful to the Universe for all of the blessings and gifts of which I have the pleasure of receiving every day.

This week I taught two separate classes to small groups of  my friends in order to help find my footing and personal style as a vinyasa yoga instructor. I am so thankful to have so many friends who are willing to be my "guinea pigs" as I begin to explore my unique approach to facilitating yoga. I have to believe that if it feels so natural and beautiful to teach to my friends and peers, then it must be even more amazing to spread the light and love that is yoga to perfect strangers.

Last weekend at our teacher training at JYC, we were lucky enough to have MCL come in to teach us some Emotional Freedom Techniques to release any fears that we had regarding teaching yoga (check out the website http://www.eftuniverse.com/).  I love that this tapping method allowed me to release any fears of rejection which I was previously harboring. What great bodies we live in!! We can literally tap out our negative emotions and be better for it!!

Also this week, I went for two runs at Memorial Park and on Thursday I beat my best time by almost a minute and a half!! I am loving that you can literally measure your body strengthening over time. Feeling so happy and full of endorphins and strong... I love life. :)

We mustn't let the outer world bring us down personally. We have so much to offer and so much love and grace within each of us to spread to others, why would we choose to spread anything but the positive? This world can change positively and be more peaceful just by each of us beginning to change our mindset from the negative to the positive. The glass is always half full and optimism is contagious... SPREAD IT!
Love and Light.

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
