An important aspect of my yoga practice is working within the community. Currently I am raising money to participate in the Yogathon for Schizophrenia coming up on March 6th. If you would like to sponsor me, or participate in the event yourself here is more info my.e2rm.com/personalPage.aspx?SID=2445443

As a gemini practioner I love working with different teachers and styles of practice. They offer creative sequencing, new places to breathe into, and fresh ways of strengthening my practice. The gems I seek come in simple forms, translate easily into practice and instruction, and can be carried with you where ever you go. Today I was introduced to kicking donkey and mermaid. If you're looking for a vigorous pranayama: hara breath (inhale through the nostrils, exhale "ha" through mouth) linked with energizing movement kicking donkey may just the animal pose you've been waiting for. The mermaid is a sweet addition to a prone practice of backbending/core strengthening - an interlude strengthening your side body with your head comfortably resting in your palm.

My dog is the best yoga teacher I have had the pleasure of knowing. Not only does he move through upward dog, downward dog and frog pose with an unparalelled grace - he lives moment to moment, breath by breath, using all of his senses, and taking life as it comes.
