Scientific studies have shown health benefits too numerous to list for mental, physical and emotional health. It is a multifaceted art with a number of integrative elements and practices

Some thoughts:

"Honor and respect for yourself and your practice.

Honor and respect for each other and our practice together.

Honor and respect for all of creation as we take this practice into the world.


I close each yoga practice I lead with this benediction as a reminder that yoga impacts and changes us individually and corporately. As we practice, we become more in tune with our own bodies and minds - to better know ourselves. And the better we know ourselves, the more in tune with are with each other and the world around us, the more we can affect the world for the better. The COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity to put this into action, as we care for ourselves, our neighbors, and our world with compassion and grace. In this time we are starkly reminded that we are inextricably connected even as we may be physically disconnecting.

We need yoga practice, maybe now more than ever. So I urge you to continue your practice as we observe "social distancing." I plan to increase the resources offered here in the Home Yoga Practice Resources group and will also explore some virtual teaching here. I hope you will join in as you feel led.

May I be happy. May I be healthy. May I live with ease.

May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you live with ease.

May all beings be healthy. May all beings be happy. May all beings live with ease.
