Awakened Practices for Every-Day Living…What does this really mean?

My practice began in my early university years; stress, anxiety, and unconsciously living out a standard of perfection that was not attainable, began to take it’s toll. I was unhappy, often. I had always been intrigued by the Eastern wisdom traditions (I randomly picked up and read the “The Tao of Pooh, and Te of Piglet” at the tender age of 20) , and saw the word “relaxation” on a Yoga flyer through the mail that called to something within me.

From that point on, my practice has been a constant companion; spanning years, crossing continents and careers, as well as phases throughout life like; marriage, losing loved ones, pregnancy, and now motherhood. As I reflect on my years of practice life, the ability of the practice to continue to evolve, and my ever-evolving capacity to allow it to show up in the every-day without compromising my steady commitment to it – is what I wish to share. How can I/we see our practice, and practice the practices that wake us up to our life and potential in the every-day? This is what I aspire to do, and wish to inspire those around me to do, too.

If we can cultivate our practice on a daily basis as it meets the myriad of other demands on our time – and care for our bodies, hearts, and minds – it is then possible to “wake up” to the life we are living, have the courage to make changes if necessary, and be fully present to the ones we love.
