“The Times They Are A Changin'”

    I’ve always had a fascination with the way words are spelled as they align with their meaning. It’s rare I come across a word that doesn’t somehow make sense in the flow of lettering, sound, and intonation as related to its basic meaning. So this idea leads to the word “transitions.”  To break […]

What’s Next?

When someone new comes to my studio, it’s often the same scripted stories of what led them there. The general themes relate to a doctor’s gentle instruction to do so, moving through or coming out of an emotionally difficult situation, or simply realizing that they need to try this yoga thing they hear their friends […]

A Letter To Our Members

Dear Shore Point Yoga Members, My blog post to you this month comes in the form of a thank you letter. It’s a letter that I consider long overdue. We’ve been open two years this past December 5th. This date is also the birthday of my three year old twins. At the time I didn’t […]

Gold

14 years ago Yoga found me, as it usually finds everyone, by accident. It wasn’t on my radar. I had all kinds of irrational assumptions about it, and I plainly didn’t see the point of it. Stretch, breath, meditate – Yikes!  All of this related in no way to my usual miles of marathon training […]

Be A Way-Shower

One of the most fascinating things about living this human experience is the other humans who intercept our paths. We will come across thousands of people in our life, but a handful will have the power to re-direct, shape, and inform your steps along the way. Interception, most notably linked to an NFL game (Go […]

Failure Wins.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of failure, the word itself has such a deep emotional attachment to anyone who comes across it. Perhaps it sparks a childhood memory of disappointment, or maybe a current situation that you are certain will end with the word “failure” somehow being the main player. […]

Dear Teacher…

“A Teacher’s major contribution may pop out anonymously in the life of some ex-students grandchild. A teacher, finally, has nothing to go on but faith, a student nothing to offer in return but testimony.” – Wendell Barry   Dear Teachers, Here it is. Another school year. A fresh start. New students; a re-commitment to why […]

August 12, 2017: The Opposite of Yoga

So maybe this blog post won’t relate entirely to all things yoga, but it will relate to the current climate of our country and the need for us to take a deeper introspective to self.  In response to the awful happenings in Charlottesville, ask yourself these questions:  Presently, what do I feel? Presently, what do […]

Relationships Matter

I have always been an observer of people. I find them fascinating! Everyone has a story so entirely unique to them. The human recipes comprising of an infinite combination of personality, lifestyle, formative years, past hurts, current hurts, present joys, and places where love is spent. Airports, NYC, the Boardwalk . . . such great […]
