Week 22 – The Practice

Svadhaya, roughly translated as self-study, is a brutally challenging and humbling practice that requires the individual to actually take a step back and take a really hard and long look at all the ways they move and rest, connect and detach, breath, think, believe and ultimately BE in their life.

Week 20 – The Practice

I’m not sure where the past twenty four months have gone but they are, as they say, in the books. And with much of the last 14+ months filled with uncertainty, anxiety and fear as we all navigate this global pandemic, these last two years have also been a most incredible journey of community, friendship, support and togetherness, even when 6’ apart.

Week 19 – The Practice

Ever notice sometimes that even through your eyes are wide open you are unaware of the many things right in front of you? To really see clearly is to see through a lens of wholeheartedness and empathy, void of illusion and denial. Illusion is the belief in something that is not true; denial is the failure to see the truth of what actually is.

Week 18 – The Practice

Call them Saviours, Guardians, Holy Beings or Earth Angels, I believe that there are those who come into our lives at just the right moment who do just the right things, without necessarily knowing why, but who know in their hearts that they are to help.

Week 17 – The Practice

This feeling of shame is something I have been working with for as long as I can remember. I don’t know how it came to be but it’s there and it has grown roots. When shame rears its ugly head, I eventually find the will to relentlessly blaze my way through, even if it is only a spot of light in the darkness.

Week 16 – The Practice

Opportunity exists in all of life’s experiences. If this pandemic has taught me anything, it has taught me about how much I rely on and need human contact. It has taught me how much I thrive on connecting and working with people, not screens. And more than that, I’m realizing how important it is that I regularly and genuinely connect with the people and places that fill me up.

Week 15 – The Practice

Complacency is a crutch. It’s my way of hiding or avoiding that which I know is best for me. I know when I get complacent I get this F*CK IT attitude that washes over me and quickly start sinking into the muck of unhealthy gratifications grasping for quick ‘fixes’ and emotional comfort. And then, like a hamster, I just keep running around and around the ‘good enough’ wheel until I reach my limit.

Week 13 – The Practice

After a good number of hard trekking kilometers, and a number of checkpoints found, we made it to the Restigouche River where the next leg of our adventure had us canoeing down stream. Laughing giddily to each other, we gloated at how easy this portion of the race was going to be. So we nonchalantly laughed with each other as we refilled and repacked our packs and loaded the canoe, smugly smiling at the sun shine over head. After all, it was a beautiful afternoon, the scenery was spectacular, and the company was the best ever.

The Spring Thaw

As much as it serves us to hibernate during the winter months cuddled up under cozy blankets nestled beside a glowing fire, to remain this way, unchanged, as the world around us changes, can cause ill effects on our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Ayurvedically speaking, late winter through spring, Mother Nature depending, is the time of year where Kapha dosha is naturally increased.

Week 10 – The Practice

...and in the sanctuary of the woods, took to pondering the purpose behind my business. Why did I decide to open another yoga studio? And what are the core values that I believe are the root of my personal practices which ultimately nourish the foundation of my business?

Week 6 – The Practice

If I have learned anything in these last two decades it is that teachers come in all shapes and sizes, and almost always when you least expect them but always when you need them most. And each of them, with their own unique gift of realization as to the message of this timeworn practice, whether they realize it or not. All of them have helped shape my understanding and application of this rich concept that is to be in and of the Self.

Week 4 – The Practice

When I was in high school my English teacher noted in one of my report cards that writing was not my strong suit. I remember hearing him and my mother talk during a PT meeting where he stated, “give Michelle a subject to talk about and she could talk for hours. But when it comes to writing, she struggles with that.”
