New Year...New You!! Now with the craziness of the holidays almost behind us perhaps its time for some re-grouping.  So in my last antics I mentioned that we are constantly challenged with finding that balance between looking outside of us by serving those around us and looking inside of ourselves to make sure our own needs are being met as well.   The holidays tend to offer us ample opportunities to look "outside"...whether its giving to a friend in need, our favorite charity, or just giving of our precious time by sharing the holidays with friends and family.

So as many of you have likely seen on facebook we just got back from an amazing weekend with 19 women up in Traverse City. Our theme for the weekend was an extension of my last antics in which I referred to Dr Laura's advice where she described the gap between our expectations and our reality as frustration or self imposed suffering.

As we head into the end of August maybe you, like me, are reluctant to let go of the warmth of summer.  But once we accept the inevitable, that fall is just around the corner, we can start to embrace the fact that in every change comes the potential for trying something new or shaking it up a bit.  We tend to think of the season changes as a time of transformation...we see it in the changing of the leaves...we feel it as the warm summer air turns to crisp fall air. So in keeping with the theme of changing it up a bit this Fall Body Language is offering you a chance to transform your yoga practice.  Read More
