Remain vigilant, but do not be afraid

We have a week behind us after the shocking events of last week. The reality of our situation has certainly started to settle in, but I’m sure that more reality will come as the details get laid out. After spending the last week doing 2 daily meditations, I feel compelled to ask myself, what can I do to keep my eye open and vigilant over the health of the community. Read More

A rock in a raging river

Does your practice support you during these challenging times? There has been so many wise words shared on Facebook, and through email. I feel compelled to share with you all the great thinking from so many yoginis that I share in sangha. “Be the rock in the raging river”. Having a practice that supports you through challenging times will help you maintain stability or have a path to regain it when you lose your footing. Read More

Every Step Matters

In the absence of words that can make any sense of our current situation, I would like to share some thoughts that came to me from Indu Aurora. My heart hurts, yet I know that it will be ok even though it does not seem like it at the present time.

Empowering clients

I’ve starting doing some work with Michelle Babb, a very talented nutritionist in West Seattle.  We presented a workshop last Tuesday (9/13) at Chaco Canyon about empowering the female body to make wise choices about food, exercise, and breathing.  It was a full house and only an introduction of what is to come, as what Michelle and I both discovered is that we have so much more to share.   Read More

Finding Stillness Within…

As BendnMove continues to grow and flourish within the community of West Seattle, there seems to be so many opportunities to find our niche and help clients enjoy the benefits of yoga and other movement.  Recently, I’ve been graced with new students that have entrusted me to help with conditions of imbalance and dis-ease in their bodies.

Enjoy the Journey…

Sometimes I am reminded how important it is to enjoy the journey towards the destination, whether that be working towards a goal, or traveling to friends, family or vacation spot.  How often do we let anticipation get in our way of seeing life’s messages along the way.  The most recent Yoga Journal for June reminds us to let go of perfection and enjoy life’s unexpected surprises.
