If you have any interest in food, seed-saving, connection to our planet, and climate change, I suggest you watch. I've been following Vandana Shiva for years; she never ceases to amaze and inspire me. If you need hope, watch below.

Intelligent search from Bing makes it easier to quickly find what you’re looking for and rewards you.

Back at it again. This time for a cozy cabled hat.

It's a beautiful thing to sit in silence, hearing only the clicking of my needles and the pitter patter of my doggy's feet on the hardwood floor. It's a beautiful practice of stillness and focus. Like we return to our breath in meditation, I return to the gentle click of the needle, to the sensation of yarn on finger, to the subtle tones and texture of the fiber.

Mindfulness. You can find it anywhere. All you need to do is open yourself to connection and flow.

Friends, I'll be taking some time for self-care and reflection these next 2 weeks. But you can still find some MindfulKnits at Tribe Yoga while I'm away. Winter isn't over yet, and it's best to keep the internal fires stoked so that immune system stays up and running.

Be well!

“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
― Mary Oliver

Last night, I had an open and honest conversation with a student new to yoga. They were intimidated by an ashtanga poster they saw, and their anxiety was growing about their first ever yoga class.

"There are endless styles of yoga," I said. "There is an endless variety of human bodies. Not all bodies work well within all styles of yoga. You try them. Find what yoga style and teacher make you feel calm, confident, and safe. Not everyone has arms long enough for this pose to look like this.... or hamstrings open enough for this... And not everyone wants to even attempt these things. That's ok."

Yoga is about freedom. It's about exploring your edges with curiosity and kindness. Stepping on your mat should not be a testimony of fear or a declaration of ego. Quite frankly, if it is, please don't come to my class.

Yoga is finding peace and unity within your Self.

May you find peace today. If only for a moment.

"Let the life lead you out

Why can't you take the leaf off your mouth?
Now that you have the facts on your side
Take a moment to reflect where you're from
Let reason guide you,
See old tracks take you out from the dark
See old tracks lead you up to the stars"

Wise words from Jose Gonzalez.

Just putting the finishing touches on another project.

It feels so good to create something with my own two hands and to share my craft with others. Giving isn't just about sharing stuff, it's about sharing intention, skills, caring, and presence.

What's your gift?

That's the beauty of handmade goods - the connection between people and the connection with the craft.

Start where you are. This is very important.

Don't wait until you are the person you want to be in order to start your meditation practice. It's not about being perfect, "having it all together", or having "X" amount in your bank account.

Most importantly, your opinion of yourself is immaterial to this practice. The ground you stand on - regardless of how "bad" or saintly you are - is fertile for growth and resolution.

Sit. Set the timer for 5 minutes. Watch.

Some of us take the long way around. And that's ok. Because no matter where you are, you are on the path. And every situation is ripe with the nourishment for enlightenment.

I had no idea why I spent the last 13 years traveling and working in the outdoor industry. But for 13 years, this work brought me close to nature, close to the earth, and closer to my Self. Grounded in fresh air, sunshine, brisk fall mornings, and hot days on rushing rivers, I've healed a lot of wounds. I've learned how to return to the present moment. I've learned how to not judge myself.

And only when that way of life was taken away from me did I begin to realize that it was crucial for my survival.

Your assignment for today is to set an alarm for a random time of day. When I goes off, step outside and take 3 long breaths. Feel your body. If you can't step outside, find a window and look at the sky. Take a moment to return to your physical existence and your breath.

All is coming. You are right where you need to be.

Remember that autumn is nature's way of showing just how beautiful it is to let go of what no longer serves us.

It's been a long year of letting go for me, but it's not been a year of scarcity. Letting go of toxicity opened my life to an abundance of love, generosity, kindness, and light.

When you let go - of toxic relationships, unnecessary identities, ego, negativity, stress, etc. - you make space for what nourishes.

Snowmageddon has officially shut down tonight's Kripalu Yoga class. It is canceled. But that doesn't mean you can't practice on your own. Take a moment to revel in the silence of what may be the last snow of the year. Light a candle. Meditate. Breathe. Stretch. Drink something warm. Take care and rest. We won't get many moments like these once spring has sprung and life gets moving at a full tilt once again.

Had a blast showing new paddlers the benefits of yoga at the Lehigh Valley Kayak and Canoe Club meeting last week! Nothing better than combining my passion for yoga and my love of whitewater.

As of right now, Wednesday's Kripalu Yoga is still on from 6-7:30 p.m. at Tribe Yoga Center. But keep an eye to the sky because it looks like this storm is going to be a mother bear.

Don't miss tonight's all-levels Kripalu Yoga class at Tribe Yoga, 6-7:30 p.m.! On tap for tonight - the role that proper alignment plays when building core strength. Let's open that heart, shrug stress off your shoulders, and get down to the core of your being. Boom. Like that.
