Finding peace through life’s ups and downs
Why This Blog?
My Yoga practice has had a profound impact on my life, spiritually and physically. I spent most of my life working for the happiness I thought money could bring me. When that life came crashing down around me, I turned to yoga and learned that true happiness cannot be bought. Beyond the cliche that money can buy happiness, is true happiness.
This blog is an attempt to put into 21st century writing, the spiritual teachings of the age old philosophy of living your yoga off your mat. Learning and trying to understand these sometimes esoteric teachings has taught me that happiness really can be found no matter what our life’s circumstances are.
Quotes that have helped me see things differently
“You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.”
― George Burns
“Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm, as you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.”
― Sam Levenson
Looking at the positive:
I am grateful for my new dog Indie. Even though she chews on my stuff and poops in my yard, she loves me, no matter what.
I teach small classes in a yoga studio in Southern NJ. Most of my students have come to yoga to re-gain functional mobility that they used to take for granted. Through their practices, my students lives have improved. They have gained energy, their pains have decreased and their lives are changing for the better; physically and mentally. This blog aims to simply show how the practice of yoga can make life more enjoyable.
