COFFEE

And THIS, is Coffee.  For a cat named Coffee, he sure does sleep ALOT.  And this sucka has got the nerve to actually cover his eyes when he sleeps - like he isn’t made to sleep outside in the elements.  His favorite place to sleep is on this bench in a tiny garden just outside my door.  If I try to sit down, he DOES. NOT. BUDGE.  At all.  Sleeping, or wide awake.  But he’ll have the nerve to purr for me to pet him, which I NEVER DO lol.  I think he’s under the impression that we’re DATING (in a very one-sided relationship, obviously) because he loves to PURRR outside my door late at night.  I do say sweet...

SENNA

This is SENNA, and she chose me.  Senna and I met when she rather suddenly just decided to come sit in my lap.  As part of training, we got to spend some time with the children of a local orphanage.  I had just arrived at the yoga studio, and there were a number of my classmates and staff standing around, mingling.  The kids from the orphanage were frolicking about FEVERISHLY - so full of excitement for a day entirely dedicated to them having FUN. Senna was sitting on the floor playing with a little bamboo xylophone when I walked in. I felt a bit NERVOUS actually, hoping that I would be able to connect with some of the kids despite...

SOLO

TODAY I taught my first SOLO class.  It was free of charge of course, as I need to spend the next several months practicing.  Up until about 8 minutes before the class started, I thought no one would show. Suddenly the room filled with about 20 SMILING yogis. My heart was ELATED. I was SO grateful for the chance and privilege to guide them through a practice, just as much as I was guiding myself toward courage and calm.  In honor of the FULL MOON we had just last night, I dedicated the practice to this very simple TRUTH: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like the MOON, no matter what PHASE (of life, love, career, relationship, etc.) you are in, YOU ARE WHOLE, complete,...

BESTIES

This is Angelique.  She is a cow, as you can probably see lol, that lives at a yoga studio. Her official name is "HEAD MEDITATOR," and she even has a sign on her pen that says so. During training, I would have my BREAKFAST in one of the HAMMOCKS outside the studio, and sometimes she'd be tied to a tree nearby. So, I would SHARE the savory scraps from my breakfast with her - usually watermelon rind and banana peels.  Most mornings, I would either walk over to where she was to pet her and feed her, and sometimes, if we were both lucky, her rope was just the right length for me to lay lazily in my hammock while...
