Chandra's Embrace

We have begun the transition into shorter and darker days. As the curtain of the evening sky lowers earlier throughout autumn and trees shed their leaves, Nature calls us to follow her pattern of transition; therefore, cultivating balance in our lives becomes necessary to maintain inner and outer steadiness. This transition has us unpack our vacation suitcases of summer, and roll out our yoga mats, returning to our practice. We let go of summer’s spontaneity and revisit the roots of our families in harvest and feast. The light foods of summer are replaced with autumn’s earthy, grounding bounty. Ultimately, we find that the outpour of summer energy transforms into groundedness. One way in which Nature provides that steadiness during transition is through the gravitational pull of the moon or Chandra. Read More

Pose of the Month - Ksepana Mudra

Lighten Up, Yogis!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any hotter, August showed up with its blazing temperatures and fiery sun. As author Natalie Babbit writes, “The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot.” Read More

Thankful for Creation

All beings in existence once had a day of birth when they opened their eyes to this experience we call life. To be born, we all had a mother, but we also all share a primordial mother – the essence of creation. As we approach Mother’s Day, we are reminded that every day is an opportunity to show gratitude for this precious gift of life with reverence to our birth mother, mother Nature, and the primordial mother.
