This yoga class podcast is dedicated to the memory of Gusta, my Husband’s grandmother who passed away August 13th in her sleep peacefully at the age of 96. She passed just from old age with a life filled with love and beauty. Last year before we were married I met her in Israel. She was pure love. Her life was one that was filled with amazing experiences. I am grateful to have been able to spend time with her and will miss her. We are going to Israel this September for our 1 year anniversary and Gusta was stretching every breath to see me and to have someone actually put you as the meaning behind their breath is an honor. And with this I offer this yoga class to her.


My husband Asaf and Gusta in June 06.

The other day I misplaced my keys and began to feel out of the flow as I became worried. This bump was a great way to become creative and find another way – using another set of keys that I had. We often feel that if we didn’t have obstacles in the way everything would flow. But what if that is exactly the inviation to be in the flow and let ourselves become more flexible.

How do you stop the flow coming out of being Anusara (in the flow, current) into Samsara (out of the flow) – call me and leave your connection to this theme at 206.984.0347.

Being true to who you in the world on and off the mat is yoga. Even though we all wear many masks in one day there is always a part of ourself that is constant. See if you can honor yourself connect to this authentic part of you and if you are not being true to your heart forgive yourself and then take action to nurture yourself.

In the third chapter of the Bhagavad Gita there is a conversation about this and its presented as it as its better to fail at your dharma then do someone else’s – trying to become someone else takes more work and is not authentic to your heart. If you are not sure if you are being true to you then allow yourself to become quiet and see in any situation if you are being true to you, just ask and there will be a response.

Being reminded to take time to connect to ourselves and tap into who we really are at our core is not as easy these days with so much stimulation in our lives…. When my dear friend Elsie (who I always talk about cause she rocks) sent me an email on Good Friday which inspired this class. Funny enough I didn’t even know that is was a holiday she took me to the mat to sit and go within to remember.

Along with that I am grateful for being able to teach yoga this weekend at the Spring Retreat for Agape and sit & meditate in the illuminating presence of Dr. Rev. Micheal Beckwith (featured in the Secret DVD) & Dr. Ricki Byers Beckwith which reminded me why I teach yoga and live a life of service. Before you do this practice see if you can find within yourself what you are passionate about, what is sacred to you and pour the meaning into each breath, action and intention.
