As we slowly roll forward into the spring, we are inspired to renew our bodies and spirits. Clean living leads to positive energy and overall better health. From what I understand, many people developed some bad habits during the pandemic. So perhaps you could decide to change some of the things that truly do not serve you. Over-eating, over-drinking, lack of sleep, fear-based thoughts are all detrimental to your well-being. Making conscious decisions to develop good habits will come with time and discipline. Let the fun begin as you embark on the journey to better health.  

Food is medicine. Healthy choices of fruits and vegetables are nourishing for your body. With good food you will begin to have positive energy and feel lighter. Our

Even if the sky is full of clouds, the sun still shines—we just don’t see it. The sun is the nourisher that causes all to thrive.

This month at Ocean Bliss Yoga, we are focusing on one of the eight limbs of yoga “pratyahara” (Sanskrit word meaning “withdrawal of the senses”).  It is the bridge between the external ones: ethical ways to live, self-discipline, yoga poses and breath control and the internal ones of concentration, meditation and enlightenment. “Pratyahara” enables us to

As we march forward towards spring, some proven treatments and more and more people receiving the vaccine, I am feeling relief and hope. Little by little hope is replacing fear. We know what happened, so lingering in the recent past with that fearful feeling will do us no good. It will eventually leave a harmful irreparable mark.

We are all beginning to re-emerge into the world. Everything has changed and we are very different. Transitions back will be slow. Remember what has been lost and what has been gained. Please accept my deepest condolences to those who have lost family and friends in the past year. May you allow yourself time to grieve and be with your loss. 

Every week I receive a newsletter from Maria Shiver that sometimes sparks inspiration.  Her seed thought, “what makes you feel alive?” I am sharing this

During the month of March, I decided to create a space of equanimity in my life by balancing how I listen and speak. Many of you may have created a sacred space in your homes to pray, listen, meditate and move. Some have a space between your bed and dresser but you made it work during these past months of confinement. I have never really mastered the art of conscious listening until recently. I am still a beginner but I am learning to tune into the sounds and people around me. The profound

 Love life and all that it has to offer. When you begin to awaken from your sleep silently say, thank you God for another day. Try your best to fill it with good intentions and positive thoughts. Some days are better than others but remain confident that each day is a precious gift. My dearest neighbor, Joan Moors, always has the greatest mantras.
