Thank You,

Posted | 0 comments

Thank you for the questions that lurk underneath.

Thank you for the answers that rise to the surface in their own time.

Thank you for the break of retrieving other people’s experiences, so I can fully live mine.

Thank you for the support that makes standing upright possible.

Thank you for the time to circle back; closer and closer to myself.

Thank you for the quilting of this blanket of compassion, sewn together artfully + consciously. Let me return to this cover when I roam far away.

When my heart feels like it is yearning to sing :  please sing.

When I feel my body aching to dance : I beg you to dance.

When I desperately look beyond myself to somewhere else I’d prefer to be, to someone else I’d like to be. Help me to remember : I am exactly where I need to be.

Often the messier the better.

For through that muck, through the constant grinding, is where the lotus emerges, is where the diamond comes to get it’s shine.


I cannot wait to gather this Tuesday evening and normalize everything about this journey, without trying to fix or advise, but practice the art of seeing and being seen.

Motherhood Rising

“How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you? A place for you to go… a place of women, to help you learn the ways of woman … a place where you were nurtured from an ancient flow sustaining you and steadying you as you sought to become yourself. A place of women to help you find and trust the ancient flow already there with yourself … waiting to be released …
A place of women …
How might your life be different?”

-Judith Duerk author of Circle of Stones

 

I’ve been craving this place for a while now, and so I am thrilled to create this space with, Ashley Jacobs through an evening of connection + creativity : 

If you have been wanting to fill yourself up, this may be the perfect evening to do so.  We will move through a gentle yoga flow, have space to create art, and check in and share where we are as  women, as mothers, in a supportive community. 

Ashley is a fellow mother of 2 little ones, a certified yoga teacher + doula with a nourishing + grounded presence. And I am also a mother of 2, certified yoga teacher + creative soul that continually searches for + creates beauty in various mediums.

I love Ashley’s words below + I’m delighted by the potential power of this gathering.

“My dream is to create a place for mothers to come together and share their experiences and knowledge so that no-one feels alone, or scared. It is in our ancestral genes to be a village of supporting help for new mothers.” 

And that is exactly what we will be doing : sharing, supporting, nourishing + creating.

Quiet Persistence

Posted | 0 comments

A strengthening of the spirit is occurring in the quiet.

An apparent lull is potent space. Silence is where profound conversations are exchanged.

It is the duality of feeling like nothing is happening, yet trusting gorgeous shifts are taking place.

The miracle will come. In some ways, it already has. And as we wait for its arrival, let our attention rest on what is beautiful, while connected to what is possible.

When the waiting gets tiresome and as we become resistant, allow our perspective to widen. Let us see it as an opportunity to fine tune our character.

Let this period serve as a balm for our muscles that are working in new ways, an elixir for our the neural pathways that are forging ahead.

And once the miracle arises, in whatever form it takes, be sure to let us not look upon it as ordinary, or late, or lacking in anyway. Instead let us regard it as a heroic, graceful, feat of focused attention, desired action, and a widening of the channels to receive. Let us celebrate its arrival.

Then feel the weight lift. Your heart lighten.

Look fondly behind at all of those footprints that zigged and zagged, and see the masterpiece in the design you crafted on this journey – to get exactly where you were meant to be. in the exact time you were meant to arrive.

All because, you persisted anyway.

Reclaiming Me

Posted | 0 comments

I’m in the process of opening doors I previously thought locked shut.

The ones labeled : dancer, artist, singer, athlete.

I’m reclaiming bits that lay behind these rooms so vast, yet easy to comprehend in this light.

I just began taking a dance class again.

I’m making art in how I arrange our home.

I’m learning how to play and chant with a harmonium.

I’m moving my body rigorously, rhythmically, + strongly.

When I let go of the form of having to be the best in any or all of these, I gave myself permission to stay and not walk away, to open the door a little wider, no longer consumed with comparison, but instead interested in expansion.

I realize the importance of having these facets of me engaged and paid attention to. I’m honoring my expression, and continuously reclaiming who I came here to be.

Just noticing, and knowing how it looks now will all shift and change again, but excited by the prospect of all of it.

Babe + Me Yoga

Posted | 0 comments

I want to gather a group of women to come together to recharge, reset, and elevate each other, and so I am offering this : 

I want to connect to a group of likeminded women, with hearts of gold, that dares to believe it doesn’t have to be painstakingly hard to be worth it. There can be a new story we choose to believe.

One of abundance and ease. One that feels good. One that restores.

In the series there will be time to:

  • Move your body in a gentle, yet powerful way through a carefully curated vinyasa series. 
  • Sing, chant, connect to a mantra you can plug into throughout your day because sound heals.
  • Practice potent Kundalini Yoga exercises which emphasize the breath and rhythm to swiftly shift the energy.                                      (I practice these in the middle of the day, in jeans, sometimes right in the middle of the kitchen – incredibly effective.)
  • Share tools that are accessible in an instant for you to recharge while you are in the midst of changing diapers, feeding your family, and doing laundry.

It is a class with our little ones : so we do the best we can.

It’s not quiet, our attention will be fragmented, but we will be spending time filling our cup so we can continue to fill our child’s. In the process of moving through class we expand our capacity to heal, to connect, to witness it all, as it moves so fast + slow seemingly simultaneously.

There will be space for 6 mamas. I hope to see you there.
