We made it. Another year. And here I am embarking on my 3rd year as a full time yoga teacher…and I couldn’t do it without you. I know it’s cliche’ but 2014 is going to be big. I, personally, had a very different energy ringing in this year. I’m usually good with the party until midnight and then a very sullen mood kicks in. It’s been this way for years. I’ve known the root of the issue – a deep sense of loneliness –  yet could never seem to do anything to solve it. My close friends know I’ve done alot of personal work lately that definitely paid off with Dara not turning into Debbie Downer ringing in the new year.

January is also my birth month. And as some of you know, I’m a big birthday brat. I celebrate the whole month with at least one special event a week. There are plans for massages, food, and wine, lots of wine…and then a full on cleanse in February.

I want only 2 things this year for my birthday. The first is to know the people I care about are okay. It seems like such a simple request. However, life doesn’t always turn out that way. 2013 ended kinda rough for some of my important people. They know who they are and that I’m here and sending my love.

The second thing is for YOU to come practice with me. My actual birthday is Sunday, Jan. 26. I’ll be 37 and as my teens who give me gray hair like to tell me -.I don’t look my age. (It reminds of 20 years ago when I thought 40 was old. What the hell did I know?) There are two opportunities to hang with me on the big day – 11 am at Yoga Masala and 5 pm at City Yoga. Mark your calendars.

January also brings the return of Asana Junkies, the program created by Christina Sell that has re-inspired my practice. Asana Junkies is for asana enthusiasts who are interested in “upping” their physical practice. You don’t have to be able to do everything. I certainly can’t. We will work intelligently and will try a little bit of everything. You do what you can do and then watch with the intention to learn. We have a ton of fun and problem solve together. I don’t claim to have all the answers. Everyone brings their own wisdom to the mat. The perquisites are a sense of adventure and the ability to laugh at yourself. If you’re interested in practicing with us, just c’mon. If you have any questions, let me know.

Asana Junkies comes back Saturday, Jan. 25 at 10:30 am – 12;30 pm  at City Yoga $10

Asana Junkies starts again Jan. 25!
