I’ve been dreaming a bit about the Purushartas – the 4 legs of the table – Artha (wealth, security in the phenomenal world), Kama (pleasure), Moksha (liberation), Dharma (righteous action) as my Life is about to change dramatically as it tends to.  And I don’t really know (my security with the Unknown is always being […]

Gallery Black Lagoon, Austin, Texas, Yoga Illumined, Singer Mayberry, Local Austin Art, Yoga Teacher Training, Yoga classes

I am so utterly delighted with my new print by Singer Mayberry, artist, musician, yoga teacher, owner and curator of Gallery Black Lagoon at 43rd and Guadalupe.  There’s something about the simplicity of organic form, color, oranges, stone-hues.  When I was pondering going to medical school and becoming a doctor, people would ask me why I […]

Yogafly, Yoga Illumined, Sumukhi, Kristina Lanuza

Mother Nature and the beautiful inter-dependence of the world’s ecosystems are wonderful and awe-inspiring.  Every time people ask me what I think about the state of the world and the environmental disasters happening – from global warming to oil spills to tsunamis and typhoons – I say this:  “Mother Nature will always win.”  And then […]

Love and Respect

Yogafly, Yoga Illumined

Happy New Year!  Or as Byron Katie says, “Happy New Moment!”  We have this utterly delightful and ridiculous propensity to be both eternal and ever-changing at the same time:  this human existence.  I love that I can come home to my parents’ house and put up the Christmas tree we’ve had since high school every […]
