Staying Present?

Posted By on May 29, 2013 in O2 Yoga Blog |

Do you ever think that we yoga teachers are calm and serene all the time? Well, I can only speak for myself when I say, I am definitely not! I gravitated towards yoga, at first, for the physical benefits as I think many do. I was a personal trainer and an aerobics instructor for years. When I did yoga, there was something there that I liked but I didn’t trust it. I know that sounds weird but, coming from the fitness industry, I...

Natural Cycles

Posted By on May 1, 2013 in O2 Yoga Blog |

At this time of year, many of us are coming out of the winter doldrums. Well, at least I am. As you may know, our family unschools which is a way of saying that we educate our children and ourselves through experience. I bring this up because most people have a schedule and structure to their lives that doesn’t take into account the natural rhythm of the body, seasons, and nature. Because my kids don’t go to school and...

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 |

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...
