You will hear thunder and remember me, and think: she wanted storms... ~ Anna Akhmatova
This quote made me think of something I woke up and wrote the other day...
As I heard the wind rustling over the long grasses outside, I shivered further down beneath the covers. It was a cold and forward wind.There's a slow truth coming, I thought to myself, and it's not going to be an easy one.
I write fiction and poetry and am listening more and more to my creative voice, which I had silenced for years. Whatever becomes of it, I cannot know..but it feels good to let the steam out of the kettle.
As a yoga studio owner and a yoga instructor, I am always looking for that perfect song to send my clients home with after an awesome practice. But sometimes, after I put a song on, I will find myself thinking, is this really the perfect song? Is it too sad, too upbeat, too this, too that?
Obviously, it's very important to me (and if you're a yoga teacher too, I know you feel the same!) So, with this post, it is my goal to research and find my most perfect Savasana songs (on the planet).
I will add to this post as I find more songs that I feel to be absolutely perfect for delicious Savasana moments!

Okay, I can't even with this new poet that I'm reading. Just sharing the first two things that I read that make me want to read everything he's written.
What if all we have ever wanted isn't hiding in some secret and faraway dream but inside of us now as we breathe one another and find home in the way our arms always seem to fit perfectly around the space between us?
What if we are the answer and love is the question? What if all this time it was us you were supposed to find? I am filled with wonderings questions and doubt but of one thing I am certain: it will always be you that gives flight to the butterflies inside me. calm to the sea I have become and hope to the darkness all around us. It is you and it has always been you you.
You that soothes and excites and spreads joy like rainfall on the already damp earth; You that pulled me from the longest sleep and kissed my tired eyelids awake. If life is a question mark, then you, my love, are the proud and bold period that is typed with certai…
My heart is a bit pinched right now as I just read an article about Bikram Choudhury which completely lambasted him and it brought up an issue that I've been having about yoga, and the issue can not be lain on yoga's shoulders. Let me preface by saying that I have never done Bikram yoga. I'm not overly interested in it besides the fact that I am a yoga instructor and as such, should know what is out there in the yoga community. It sounds too militaristic for me. Clapping to signify pose changes, static holds and just a bit too hot of temperature even though I practice and teach hot power yoga (which is not the same thing as Bikram, p.s). But if Bikram is what calls to a person, that's fantastic.
Yoga seems to be taking a lot of twists and turns right now and as such, is experiencing what they call "growing pains." A fellow yoga instructor said to me the other day that her teacher recently lamented that "yoga used to be an inch wide and a mile deep and now…
