Less Talk, More Action

Posted By on Feb 23, 2013 in O2 Yoga Blog | 0 comments

What does it take to live life with a sense of integrity? How many choices do we make each and every day which could reflect and support a belief system? More importantly, how many choices do we make each day which we don’t think about? Is it possible to think about everything? Is it advisable or enjoyable to do so? Isn’t it nice sometimes just to do something because it feels good, or is fun, or makes us happy? Do these...

Giving Back to Tulum

Posted By on Feb 1, 2013 in O2 Yoga Blog | 0 comments

There are so many ways to give back to people who you love, who take care of you, who make you happy. We have been going to Maya Tulum for 12 years now. I am a firm believer in giving time, money, energy, and love directly. It is easy and often more convenient to send a check to an organization, yet you don’t always know exactly where it is going. In the years that we have been going to Maya Tulum, we have gotten to know many of...

My good friend and teacher, Beryl Bender Birch, turned 70 this October. Happy Birthday Beryl! Her long-time friend and assistant, Lori, sent out a request for stories about Beryl for a birthday book she is making. I have many stories but this is my favorite. It is something that sounds in my head frequently when I get distracted by what other people are doing. I met Beryl for the first time in 1999. She was teaching a workshop with...

Unlimited Energy I am not one to ask for help. In the past, when we, my family and I, have opened other businesses, I didn’t need to ask (okay, I probably should have then but now, I am so much more enlightened) but this is entirely different. When I was in my twenties, I was attacked and almost killed by a stranger. Along with the obvious discoveries that are made after an event like that, I discovered that I actually had a...
