20141030-171617-62177191.jpgYep. This is my Nag today. In addition to practicing yoga, make yourself something yummy that you love. And eat it.

As a good friend said, “Peace. Love. And a fruitcake. xo”

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,

20141028-095708-35828915.jpgIn need of inspiration? Look no further. To the amazing, beautiful, funny and fun-loving @Cheryl Kravitz, half mooning across the ocean in the ruins of the Ancient Greek city of Ephesus (now Turkey). Ardha Chandrasana is her favorite pose. Can’t you tell? Isn’t she beautiful?!

This is also after knee replacement surgery, not that long ago. She has worked so hard, using her yoga as part of her restoration work. It shows. She was doing wild thing and wheel in my class last week. This woman is an inspiration to me. She lights up the world.

Sooooo, if you don’t have your own mojo to do yoga today, borrow some from Cheryl. She has more than enough to go around. If you are feeling sparkly, be like Cheryl and share your light with others around you.

Cheryl is also the communications director for the American Red Cross in DC. Her inspirational work extends past the edges of her yoga mat.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,

20141027-200442-72282708.jpgCrescent moon travel. Such beauty. All around me. The air is as cool and clear as this sky. I love the fall. I feel more alive and in my skin. Partly due to the glorious weather. Partly thanks to this transitional time of year. We often complain about change. At least I do. But it turns out, it is pretty darn good for me. It helps me be aware and present. More in the moment–seeing, feeling, being. And I usually do some pretty hard core cleaning and clearing, which always makes life a little lighter and brighter. Just like this sweet evening sky.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,

20141026-143319-52399623.jpgToday, I am working to keep my forearms hugging in. Whenever I use blocks for this kind of work, I think of my amazIng teacher and friend, the wise and wonderful @MariaHamburger, and her block parties. Hard, smart practice. Can be a little clumsy too. Especially at first. But worth the effort. I will be sore tomorrow in places I didn’t know existed. Try it.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

For more about Maria and her classes, go to Willow Street Yoga or http://www.facebook.com/GreatWindYoga. She is brilliant. For reals.

Peace and practice,

Half moon, #ardhachandrasana, for the mamas. Postnatal yogis floated their way there today with beautiful grace and power. Amazing women. Thank you, mamas, for sharing your pre- and post-natal lives. You bring me so much happiness and inspiration. Keep loving on yourselves in all ways, carving out the time for yoga and whatever else feeds your body and soul. It makes a difference when you do. For all of us–you, your babies, and everyone around you. Big love.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,

Beautiful friend, fellow yogi, and student–@amy_scarp–free handstanding on the shores of North Padre Island, Texas. Look at her go! This yoga practicing and teaching business is amazing. I am so grateful to participate in this powerful work….for myself, and for others. Visible progress is so satisfying and inspiring. Wow.

Happy Friday indeed. Keep on practicing. And I will too.

Do yoga. Today. Every day.

Peace and practice,
