Gabrielle Roth has passed.  I had met her personally on a few occasions and she was most instrumental on teaching me how to move with abandon.  She’ll be missed.

There’s a good article here:   http://www.elephantjournal.com/2012/10/gabrielle-roth-the-most-badass-teacher-of-our-time/

Mercury is completing it’s retrograde period and we are moving easier to Center now….just a few ripples in the pond…….no tsunami here. We are grateful, yes?

Imagine a world where

Find Center……………….stay there…………keep moving……..

Over the years I have worked & studied with a variety of musicians, dancers, movement therapists and yoga teachers including Gabrielle Roth, Emily Conrad, Anodea Judith, Selene Vega, Shiva Rae, Dan Levin, Connie Miller, Jeffrey Hoffman and many of the Danskinetics teachers at Kripalu Center. My experiences with these teachers brought positive changes to my life and continue to inspire me every day.

Getting my yoga ‘off the mat’ was intimidating, exciting, and pleasantly stressful when I first tried it. Ugh. All those thoughts & feelings about what I was doing, and what “others” would think of me, and how come I feel so ‘stiff’??????? However, as far as a tool for ‘shifting energies’ around in the body, nothing beats this type of practice. And once we shift energy inside of us, wonderful things begin to happen in our lives.

Did you know that dancing was banned in certain cultures and civilizations?
It’s an interesting piece of history to check out.

Tribal Dance

Dance, when you’re broken open.

Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.

Dance in the middle of fighting.

Dance in your blood.

Dance, when you’re perfectly free.
