June Pose of Month & Send-Off



Godan daginn!  The time has come for my Yoga Adventure in Iceland...and so it's my last few days teaching in Cambridge/Somerville for about a month!  (I leave this Saturday, 6/5) There is a group of 6 of us total about to excursion near the Arctic Sea in one of my favorite places.  We'll be there for a week; meditating, flowing & growing in our yoga practice, and discovering new things.  After that, my adventure will continue.  I have  great friends in the south of Sweden who invited me to visit, so the rest of the trip evolved from there.  My partner and I will be in Denmark, Sweden, Berlin, and London before returning to MA in early July.  
I must say...I've never been on a trip this long and I was feeling guilty for a bit about leaving you all for so long.  However, my spirit must continue to strengthen and discover new ideas, new teachings, life outside of Boston.  I am lucky to have this opportunity before me and I plan to make the most of it!  

June Pose of the Month?  Prasaritta Padottanasana into headstand!  (wide-legged forward fold-headstand).  Why?  Because we're gearing up for the Summer Solstice and it's time to conquer our fears.  The group in Iceland will be doing just that and trying this pose again and again to open up new boundaries in our practices.  Don't force it.  Just keep breathing into your low back, your knees, your hamstrings, your head...and when the time comes (whether it be tomorrow or 5 years from now), you'll discover that maybe your arms have become stronger, or your legs more open, or the fear of going upside down has subsided.  

So, I am taking a video camera with me to document some yoga time overseas.  I hope to share it all with you upon my return.  Check back from time to time while I'm away, as I hope to update a couple times with how things are going.  ;)

**While I'm away, something to consider/check out:
--The Karma Yoga Studio 200-hour Teacher Training Program with me is set to begin this fall.  Applications are now at the front desk and sign-ups are open!  Check out the website for more details...
