A Beautiful Place

The world is a beautiful place when we look in the right direction.

But we need to not only find the beauty in the world, but also in our hearts. For when we shine, someone else sees the world as a beautiful place,

…and it goes around and has a wonderful impact.






Meditaiton and Mindfulness

Meditaiton and Mindfulness

I attended a Meditation and Mindfulness class at the Manchester YMCA, offered by YogaFit, and taught by Aimee Marshall.

The class focused on transformational meditation, (which incorporates mantras and chakras); the benefits of meditation, and different types of postures and practices that can be utilized.

Shavasana is about as close to meditation I have come to. Having tried meditation in the past with little success, I was pleased to learn there are several ways to meditate. Meditation can be alone, or in a group; led with guidance, or without. Meditation can be auditory, visual or somatic. And much like yoga practices, meditation is individual to each practitioner.  What works for one, may not for another. There was a lot more flexibility to it than I realized, and through the class, as we tried many different meditations, I found what worked with me.

The practices of yoga and meditation bring awareness to our being; taking a look at how things are, evaluating how we feel, then having the option to change and work towards a healthier state of well-being physically, mentally and emotionally. At ease, calm, content and present are words that come to mind that are reflective of potential results.

The parallels between yoga and meditation continue with, be patient with yourself, let go of expectations, judgement and competition. Do what’s right for you, stay in the moment; and they both offer time to be without, or unaffected by, external distractions.

At the end of class, it was recommended we practice meditation before we begin to teach it. Along with the others, I begin a journey into meditation and mindfulness with a daily practice, starting off with a few minutes per day.


Don’t hesitate, meditate.



Summer Days

During the summer season,

shavasana is frequently seen in a hammock or on a beach towel.

Take a moment just to be.

Savasana will be a natural close to the practice with refreshments and fresh fruit afterwards.

Namaste at the beach!







We may not be responsible for our wounds,

be we are responsible for healing them.

To allow growth

that may be temporarily itchy or uncomfortable like a scab.

To heal,

to be in the moment,

 unburdened from the past.

The yoga practice: awareness, acceptance and change.

Human Beings

We are Human Beings.

the nature or essence of a person,
to be in the moment,
to exist in truest form.

Yoga is a process that celebrates our existence,
honors the nature or essence of a person,
and teaches us to be
in the moment,
to exist in our truest form.

We are Human Beings and yoga brings the human back to being.
