International Yoga Day!

Happy International Yoga Day (June 21)! In gratitude to mother India for giving us the great science of Yoga.

Planet Earth has been blessed by the profound teachings of Yoga, which go so far beyond stretching and strengthening our physical bodies: The ethical practices, the training in concentration and meditation, the emphasis on selfless service (karma yoga), devotion to the Divine (bhakti yoga)… and the list goes on!

In gratitude to the Yoga Masters who came in particular to the United States to teach. I’m thinking of Swami Vivekananda, Paramahansa Yogananda, Swami Rama, and Swami Satchidananda in particular. The ancient teachings given to the modern world are priceless.

In gratitude to my guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, for showing us how to use the practices of Yoga to bring us an easeful body and a peaceful mind – to be in service to making this world a better place! For Integral Yoga, the LOTUS, etc.

OM shanti, shanti, shanti… Peace to all!

Counseling and Yoga

As 2020 draws to a close, I find myself pondering this challenging year and feeling concerned for all the people who have lost so much: jobs, loved ones, housing, health, security, enthusiasm, etc. As a trained mental health counselor who combines traditional “talk therapy” with the timeless body/mind-centered focus of Yoga, I want people to know there is help available. Remember to think outside the box of insurance-approved techniques and practitioners. You are not limited to those choices! Message me (or others) for options on how you might access the compassionate, client-centered therapy you deserve. For example, I offer counseling or spiritual direction combined with restorative yoga.

Many blessings in 2021!

The Mind is Peaceful

Sri Swami Satchidananda at LOTUS, Yogaville (Buckingham, VA)

“Our first and foremost duty is to take care not to let the mind lose its peace. You don’t have to make the mind peaceful. If you leave it alone, it is peaceful. In our own lives we should see that we don’t lose our peace due to our thoughts, words, or actions.”

— Sri Swami Satchidananda
