The joy is in the journey…

The awareness and awakening, I experience everyday in my work…aaha..!sometimes in the serenity of teaching yoga,sometimes in the clanging of weights, sometimes in the endorphin rush of endurance,sometimes in the stillness of meditation, are equally nourishing to my mind ,body and soul as spending a few days in a retreat…..the joy is in the journey…yes, its great to find  the  space, time, and money for retreats which take you away from the rough and tumble of life and I highly recommend it , I also invite you  to make your everyday life ……exercising,cooking,driving,cleaning, a place to explore the same stillness you may receive while surrounded by people and teachers who are on the same path.If we can find a place which is  quiet inside of us, then the gym could be noisy,the yoga teacher not what you expect,the driver behind you honking, or the cooking a disaster,you will learn that this moment is the perfect teacher ,and the joy is in journey……

in gratitude for my work


spring is in the air

Spring is the air…the fresh breeze,the sunshine,the smell of flowers,the sweet smell of mangoes(…..i had to share this wonderful mango arugula recipe…yummm…).as you enjoy the amazing flavor of the fruits and vegetables that spring offers,remember also to move this form we call our body..movement is a medium for creating a  change in our physical,emotional and mental state

So walk and smell the roses,go to  a dance class ,lift some weights,practice yoga on and off the mat.

1 mango

2 cups arugula

10-15 kalamata olives

my very special dressing

balsamic vinegar with crushed raspberries,you can also use red wine vinegar(3-4 tablespoons)

olive oil(1/2-1 tablespoon)


maple syrup or honey(1 -2 tsp)

salt n pepper to taste

mix the ingredients of the dressing and set aside

cut mango into bite size pieces and lay on bottom of plate,layer with arugula and kalmata olives and drizzle with dressing(as little or as much as you want)

toss silvered toasted almonds

Off to New Mexico…there is something about the place that has placed itself in my heart…a tug that pulls me towards it…

love and enjoy each breath
