DECEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Our Space Farewell

Posted on: December 11, 2012

  Thank you everyone for the smiles, hugs and well wishes over the last month and especially yesterday at Our Studio Farewell Celebration. The morning and evening were shared by beautiful souls who could be in attendance, while feeling the presence of those who were there only in spirit. The slideshow from the evening will be posted on Facebook later this week, so […]

NOVEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Shavasana

Posted on: November 3, 2012

  Shavasana, sometimes seen and heard as savasana, is that important time needed for the body to rest and renew. After practice, it allows the energy to settle and absorb, instilling benefits from all the movement. This “corpse pose” is sometimes known as the death of the practice, but positively speaking, it’s a time to […]

OCTOBER VIEWS 2012 – Samsara

Posted on: October 23, 2012

  The term Samsara has a similar meaning within a few of the world religions. With the common theme depicting a “repetitive cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth” it seemed fitting to label our most recent saleSamsara. Knowing there is a natural continuous flow of creation, evolution and destruction in life, it makes our […]

SEPTEMBER VIEWS 2012 – Removing Obstacles

Posted on: September 11, 2012

  With the onset of shorter days and cooler nights, here on the West Coast we feel that hint of change. Energetically, it’s wise to prepare the body and its system for the fall and winter ahead. Practices such as cleansing the diet, moving the body through Hatha and Yin yoga, and partaking in regular […]

SUMMER VIEWS 2012 – Collective Consciousness & The Power of Intention

Posted on: July 11, 2012

  Yoga business is an oxymoron. Like hot yoga, the two words beside one another seem to clash. Weaving a yogic and compassionate “support the community” attitude, with the logical and non-emotional “do what is best for the business” mentality, doesn’t always leave a yoga business person feeling at ease. Trusting that there can be a balance between […]

JUNE VIEWS 2012 – A Guide to Gurus

Posted on: June 11, 2012

  If talk of a guru seems a little serious, I would say “Au contraire, it’s a matter of perception.” A guru may be simply defined as “someone who removes your goo” or “a person who guides you to the light.” The Sanskrit term itself literally means heavy (implying a heaviness of knowledge), but metaphorically […]

MAY VIEWS 2012 – May We Honour Mother’s

Posted on: May 11, 2012

The first few years of our life, we are completely dependant upon someone to care for us. Most often that primary caregiver is a woman. A clever Oprah quote reads, “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother”. What I take from this today, is that mothering goes far beyond bearing a child and […]

APRIL VIEWS 2012 – Listen & Respond

Posted on: April 11, 2012

  The human body has positive and negative feedback mechanisms. When listened to with awareness, it gives us an opportunity to learn and grow. The response our body gives during an asana in yoga practice, gives an indication of what needs to be done next. If the feedback offered brings us happiness, then we can […]

MARCH VIEWS 2012 – Serenity Now (A Sale for You)

Posted on: March 11, 2012

  Since reading The Four Agreements Companion Book years ago, it continues to serve as a great reminder of the following:            1. Be Impeccable With Your Word           2. Don’t Take Anything Personally           3. Don’t Make Assumptions           4. Always Do Your Best A tough act to follow, but where there’s a will […]

FEBRUARY VIEWS 2012 – Healthy Hearts

Posted on: February 11, 2012

  The heart is the center or middle point of the human chakra system AND at the studio this week we are mid-way to accomplishing the Journey of Our Hearts! For those who are not partaking in this program, might I share that this journey is varied and unique for all of us who are […]
