Happy Holiday Weekend (For my USA friends)

I would love to extend a warm wish for all my friends who will be celebrating the Memorial Day holiday. Whether or not you chose to honor those who have sacrificed for your freedoms, please be safe and enjoy your much-needed time off from working!

It has been a very cold and rainy spring, here in Colorado, USA. Very little spring-like activities have been on my schedule. What I did schedule in the western dessert of Colorado, to try to escape the weather got rained and snowed out! (However, I did have a day of OK weather - watch for a new article on my adventures into Mee Canyon and Rattlesnake Arches!)

The forecast for the Rocky Mountains for the long Memorial Day weekend shows no change. I breathe and include this in my life. These words have been my inspiration:

"A lifetime is not what is between
the moments of birth and death.

A lifetime is one moment
Between my two little breaths.
The present, the here, the now,
That's all the life I get.
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret."

~ Chade Meng, Taoist poet

In fact these words were so inspiring to me that I immediately went out and bought the book, Search Inside Yourself by the same author! Turns out the author is current and is working at Google, as their personal growth program leader! My curiosity was peaked, by what this leading company would provide for their employees. It is a very interesting and helpful read!

New Articles This Month for your Yin Yoga Practice

For you body-mind moments this coming month, I have included more yin poses, some taken on Pranang Beach in Railay, Thailand. I took these photos after my long teacher training intensive with Sarah Powers. I hope you enjoy the poses. They all have incredible therapeutic features, if you practice them in the Yin style. (See What is Yin Yoga?)

'Prepare to meet yourself in a new way, through your body.'

Yin Yoga's Dragon Pose
The dragon pose in yin yoga is the antidote for hours of sitting in a chair each day! There is no other pose that opens the hip flexors, in the front of your hips, quite like this pose!

Yin Yoga's Deer Pose
The Deer Pose as practiced in the Yin Yoga style, is a wonderful alternative to the Pigeon Pose, if your hips are tight.
