Fall Changes

It's hot - well into the 90's during the day. The leaves are falling and the wind in blowing. Welcome to California's Fall. This time of year brings about change; in fact, it's the only thing about a California Fall that you can accurately predict. Change can be wonderful, but stressful to most of us. It is more important than ever that you listen to your bodies, ground through your feet and find quiet moments of stillness. I am not immune to the stresses of change myself, so I am extra vigilant this season about getting enough sleep, rest and relaxation. Use your practice as medicine; remember the tools of meditation, pranayama and asana to keep or improve your quality of life... it's what yoga is all about.

A new resource
Instead of my monthly What we are practicing now... write-up, I will be posting class sequences on a separate blog. You can access that blog here, or reference the link to the left. I hope it informs and assists you. Please feel free to comment!
