A New Dog in Town
Posted 04-28-2014

I haven't written on my blog in months. I haven't written much in months period. After our beloved dog Rosie left us in December and I wrote about the experience, I felt kind of dead too. I had lost my inspiration. I felt like hibernating. I wanted to climb into a blanket fort on the couch and watch romantic comedies indefinitely. I was not only sad, I was depressed about her loss. It felt like she took a huge part of me with her into the ether. I decided to sink into winter like I never have before. Lots of sitting - little writing, exercising, or exploring. Then a serious health situation with my partner demanded my attention stay relatively home-bound, and I remained internal in many ways over the past few months. Flash forward to March 22 - and suddenly there was a new dog in town. No - really. We got a new dog and his name is Town. And he changed us in ways we would never have anticipated, and revealed to us new parts of ourselves.

Luminous Essence - December 6, 2014 - Reflections Yoga - 18675 Dixie Hwy - 3:30-5:30pm

The title of this workshop is really “luminescence” – the quality of brightness that arises without the necessity of heat. Using the unique core enlivening and breathing techniques of Forrest Yoga, you will learn how to create your own “luminous essence” just in time for the season of lights. By delving into an area of your self that feels obscured or dark in energy, you will use clearing breath, vibrations of sound, and holding of poses to generate a lightness emanating from the very basis of your Being. Come ready to play with lunges, backbends, and the energies of light and dark.The perfect workshop for going into the darkness of wintertime carrying with you the light of your own Being! You will need an extra mat (or a large towel) to roll up, a block, and a strap for this practice. Register and learn more at www.ryogacenter.com. $25 by December 1, $30 thereafter
